I would like to start off by saying thank you to everyone that has reached out to me and has made my incarceration a bit brighter. I can honestly say that the best part of my day is mail call. I can’t begin to describe how excited I am when I receive a JPAY or a letter with my name on it. I read my letters over and over. I have met people from all over the world and I look forward to meeting many more. Writing letters is a great way for me to spend my time.
I take full responsibility for my past actions and I accept my punishment. I try to create healthy ways to deal with negative setbacks. I love to laugh, make others laugh and help others as much as possible.
I am a very open and honest person. I love to read. Recently I read “The 2019 Guinness Book of World Records” and many travel books. Some of the things I miss in the free world are: family, going to movies, traveling, walking in the park, playing poker and late night Netflix binges. Oh, and I can’t forget, good restaurants! How I miss good food and cooking. I consider myself a pretty good cook!
I need someone to share my thoughts, dreams and realities with. I am ready to get out and start my “new” life. When this time comes, I am more than willing to relocate and move anywhere to live and work.
I am looking for someone positive in my life, that “special someone” to build a promising friendship with during my incarceration with the intention of a lasting relationship outside of here. Please write me so we can get to know each other. Don’t forget to include your address if you JPAY or write a letter so I can reach out to you. I can’t wait to hear from you!
How Deep Are You Willing To Go?
IS THE MOST SERIOUS QUESTION PEOPLE ARE ASKED WHEN FINDING SOMEONE TO CONFIDE IN. (Friend or mate), most people can’t answer this or do answer but only in short responses, like all the way or real deep, not really taking the time to think about how serious the question is. So again, how deep are you willing to go? My answer to this, as deep as it takes if I have to go through the roughest waves or to hell and back, to reach my goal or help the person I’m with reach theirs then I’m with it. That’s what I call commitment. Over my past 9 years of incarceration I’ve learned the tools it takes to hold and keep a successful friendship or relationship. I had to come to prison to learn how to get it right LOL.
So, to you reader, if you’re willing to have a real conversation then answer this.
How Deep Are You Willing To Go?
I love hearing females are equal to males. It’s about time the world started to recognize that. Being honest sometimes I feel they’re superior. I was conversing with a guy a little younger than me and he asked me, did I think that females should be considered equal. When I said yeah, he asked me why did I feel that way? I simply replied by saying that my mom gave birth to me. Of course this individual said, “Without your father you wouldn’t be here”. I told him he was right and then I asked who had the harder job, him in a small amount of time or my mother in 9 months, not counting the time she was in labor. He agreed, but said that’s only one scenario, so I named a few more and after awhile he said, “So you really think females are better than males are better than females?” He just said “Dam” and started smiling. I love that the world is finally coming around and recognizing it all. So I wrote this blog in hopes of encouraging you not to settle in life due to you being a woman. At the moment I’m single (by choice) but the day when that changes I will happily support my lady succeeding in her career or accomplishing her goals, even if they are bigger than mine and hope she does the same.

Hello! I’ve never submitted a blog before, so hey, here it goes!
Today I woke up and said to myself, “Self, today is a good day. Sure the food is rotten and without flavor. Sure there is a high chance that you might walk into someone’s unannounced, unexpected fart. Sure you might have to hear someone singing in the shower who swears she sounds like Mariah Carey (Yeah, right!). Sure you might be forced to watch yet ANOTHER episode of some lame rerun of Love and Hip Hop (yech!).”
But at the end of the day…I can honestly say it was a good day. (Except for the fart…that undid years of therapy!)
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I wanted to tell you a little more about myself and maybe a few things I would like to accomplish with meeting new people.
I am an average man I believe, as in I am not too intense. I like something relaxing, walks in the woods, fishing, BB Qing, doing art, or building nick knack things, because I like using my hands and some of my skills.
I wound up in prison at an early age and it is a different world in here all together and for a boy at 17 at the time, it was pure hell. It affected me extremely and for years I couldn't get away from the memories, so I tried at all. I tried to love along the way, but wasn't successful, although my love of life now is what keeps me going because there is beauty in everything.
I hope that I can meet several different people because I want to help make life better not just for myself, but for others who have been neglected or just need a friend. Not only that, but mainly because I have shunned the world and want to make amends from here on out.
I speak Spanish pretty well but want to learn a few new languages. I love fantasy, arts, and books because it gives us a way to express ourselves. I can't wait to hear from you.
First off, all I want to say it would be a pleasure to have an encounter with a nice young lady with a good personality. I am a very open-minded, free spirited individual myself looking for a companion to help me get through the mental stability of being in prison.
I am an entrepreneur with ambition to promote my own business up on my release. I am also a Houston based rapper looking to start my own record label, promotion, and managing company. Even being in my current situation, I can also be a motivator. Believe it or not, prison holds some intellectual individuals, who for a split second, made a bad decision and had to pay their dues to society. I've been able to find myself and recognize my mistakes and analyze my life so I want to have a come back to a place like this again. If you find yourself interested in my profile the best way to contact me is through JPay.
I am looking forward to connecting with a nice, fun individual. If that's you don't be afraid to send me a greeting and you can find out more about me.

Just a few things I’ve learned in life or paid attention to since I’ve been here.
One is that I cannot make someone love me. All I can do is be someone who can be loved. Learned this lesson the hard way. Family, fly-by friends and exes (Thank you). After all these years I know now that it is really up to them.
Secondly, that it’s not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts. Money can be spent or mismanaged. Clothes grow old. Jewelry can be sold or pawned. Houses and cars can be repo or etc. especially in someone’s irresponsible care. Then to they could have been with you just cause you had those things. For those that have the ones that loved them no matter what they have, where they are or etc. to hold on to that person or persons. They are going to need that love, hope, encouragement and etc. doing this time.
Thirdly, fourth, fifth and sixth is that we get angry and we have a right at times. That doesn’t give us the right to be cruel. What it took years to build up trust can only take seconds to destroy. I am responsible for what I do and how I act no matter how I feel. I don’t ever want to do something in an instant again that will cause me a heartache for the rest of my life. That’s why I have learned to leave my loved ones with loving words.
With that good night, be at peace and blessed.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the females in my family and friends. I love y’all more than you know. Happy Mother’s day to all the women in the world also.

What’s in a letter? We all know that letters are a form of written communication made up of paragraphs, sentences and words but it’s in the arranging of these words and such that give a letter character – life, that make it so much more than ink on a piece of paper.
It doesn’t matter if a letter comes from a city boy, a country girl or even a transgender hippie, only that it’s a short story as unique as the person who wrote it. Some letters tell of past memories that are funny, such as trying to sell dirt from a margarita bucket or sad like when your dog ran away. They can be exciting and full of adventure like when you went on vacation and absolutely nothing went as planned, yet it ended up being the best vacation every. They can be a means of venting about wanting to throw your stupid boss through a window or be private little secrets you’re dying to share. Letters can contain your hopes, fears, joys, passions, along with telling of your background, culture and your lifestyle.
Letters afford the opportunity to reflect on the past, dream about the future and maybe even learn a thing or two about yourself. But most of all, they offer a positive distraction, hope and moral support. Sometimes letters have enough power to not only turn someone’s life around, but to save it too.
So, please put pen to paper and tell me, what’s in your letter?
Time Is Precious…
So why waste our time? I’m not the average guy that you’re used to, I’m a boss minded individual and my time is of value, rather as in monetary gain or intellectual gain. Our time is essential so please – don’t contact me if your reason for correspondence is not genuine. Why bother if your intentions are not beneficial towards my prosperity. Come correct and my prosperity can be OUR prosperity. Hopefully, I’ll be home next year (fingers crossed) but if not, I’ll simply continue to enlighten myself with knowledge. So that when I return, I’ll be where I was when I left…On top of my game, only Legally this time! LOL
No, I don’t need your cash, I’m good in that department. On the real I’m just trying to maintain my sanity by adding someone beautiful in my life, in my ugly world. I can’t trust my fellow man and I’m too intelligent for them. A higher caliber of man I am than most of those around me. I’m a scholar, an artist, a Man of Business with morals and integrity while a Gangsta, all at the same time. So…why do I keep getting these nincompoops that want to give me their number only to NOT answer the phone…LMFAO. Who does that anyway? Where my Real is at? Get @ me Sexy.
Food For Thought
I read a study regarding scientists speaking life into certain plants and degrading others. The plants that had life spoken into them flourished in color, size, beauty and lived a little longer than their normal lifespan. Scientists soothingly expressed to the plants their purpose, their importance, and that they mattered. In short, the plants became the substance spoken into them. The plants that were treated with indifference, did not thrive in color, size or beauty. And they died much earlier than their normal lifespan. Harshly scientists scolded and informed the plants of their lack of value, their insignificance and that they were a waste of space. In short, the plants perished.
Wondering how much brighter would be the future if we spoke life into ourselves, into our relationships, into our children, into our parents, into our students, into our neighbors?
Words are powerful. They have the power to build and destroy. So, are you building or destroying?
