My friends call me “Boomer” I finished my GED/H.S.E. August 29th last year. I'm 6 foot tall, 289 pounds. I'm trying to get into the Illinois Community College….Lakeland college for the Associates Degree program that's done here at the prison.
I just turned 36 years old May 7th 2019, I have a son who is about 15 years old. My son is the best of me. I'm rebuilding my life for family and society, especially my mother and son. I'm educating myself while in prison. My life has changed so much..., especially with my Bible study, it helps you know.
My family supports me, I don't need anything but good friendship. I write a lot and keep a log journal. Would be great to share thoughts and poems. I'm reflecting a whole life of mistakes and wrong terms. I understand the severity of everything, every day. I hope people can see me as a changed man and not look through me.
My purpose is now life redirected and helping others. I believe in good positive energy and beautiful things….and don't take others good energy from them.
I've been in prison since 2013, I was raised as a good person with values and morals, which is still in my heart. I'm not a throwaway person or a snake in the grass. There's only up from rock bottom.
I hope someday to do songs out of my poems with my brother. We used to play bass and guitar together. Miss that!! I like to play songs and being artistic.
I'm more southern country oriented. I like to fish and go bow hunting white tail deer. I was an outdoors man and love camping. I like all kinds of music and styles. I like keeping up with the times best I can. I'd rather be outside rather than inside wasting time on TV. But I liked playing PlayStation games, especially with my son, we were real gamers….we like all those games.
I believe in work mentally and physically to keep the ones we love and our materials. Life without work, doesn't work.
I want to find old and new friends. I have so much prison time, there's no sense in getting in a relationship or one that would only be hard, making my time harder. I could be understanding and a healer with words and emotions.
I hope we can know each other and become like good counsel, open opinions and advice and direction changes is what real friends do.
Write me, OK? I've been waiting for new friends and old friends along time. I get bored without no one but Mom to write. She's a rock in my heart, she changed me just as much as prison has. Holler at me!
