While it’s no secret that I’ve made mistakes, I believe no matter our predicament, we all deserve a best friend and a second chance.

Was going to college for agriculture. Wanted to be a forest ranger.




My name is Alex. I hope to find a couple of positive and healthy pen-pals. Whether a casual acquaintance, a lifelong friend, or anything between. Anything to balance my time on the inside.

I am a naturally active social person, so when I built walls to deal with this bid it caused me to become too caught up in “prison society”. Finally I realized I must face the...

The spectrum of its colorful bow signals calm. “Dear Reader.” That’s not exactly how I pictured breaking the ice. Needs more panache. There’s a certain energy at play when getting to know someone. Shared moments! New experiences! Amazing.

I thought as I puzzled out the mystery. Slowly the answer...
