Should think about doing a blog or some sort similar ay. Not just because of the crazy experience but really, i think you have a way of writing ay.
Just an idea is all cause i reakon you'd get a decent amount of readers.

In regards to uni have you called up the any Uni's or even better UAC?

UAC is the Universities Admissions Centre in case you didn't know. Early round applications are closing soon September 30th. You'd need to get in before that otherwise you'd have to pay a late entry fee.

Thanks for the compliments on my writing and well wishes on being back here guys. It's nice to finally feel a warm welcome someone. The usual welcome in Prison is " Whussup homie, who you running with?" lol. Regarding the writing, It was kinda forced upon me. The only type of classes they offered in jail were english classes and the library consisted almost entirely or proper English usage books. A year and a half is a long time, and almost everyday I was writing something or other. Wrote a lot of poems, a lot of f**ked up songs, i wrote hate letters to Judicial officials that i never actually sent away, wrote some short stories etc. Strangely, Jail's a really good place to go if you want to be able to concentrate 100% on learning something. It's probably the only positive bi-product of incarceration.

Man, you have no idea. It gets said atleast 5-8 times in every sentence. Either "Ese" "homes" "homie" or "pero"- which means Dog.

Hahahaha, It's funny to see how much of a front they put on and to know they have nothing behind it. Hollow hardness is pathetic as hell in my book.

For sure on the meet up bro. I'm staying with my Mom's old friend in Rooty Hill right now. I don't know anyone here so it'll be good to meet new ppl. PM me or something man.

As for prison rape. You probably wouldn't. I mean, It's a pretty easy thing to avoid. I was one of the smallest guys in Prison 5'8" 160lbs, but as they say " It's not about the size of the dog in the fight, It's about the size of the fight in the dog". If anyone tried that shit on me i would've caught a murder or attempted murder case. To me, Honor and pride are worth dying for, but that's just my opinion.

So for some more post Prison experiece stories. Uhm, acutally the strangest things to get used to again are some of the smallest. I remember on my flight back I didn't even properly remember how to use i knife anymore. When i unwrapped the the eating cutlery, i instinctively hid the knife in the pouch in the seat infront of me. lol. Took me a second to realize that I could actually have it and not be arrested for contra-band. Another small but hard thing to get used to were door nobs. Sounds stupid, but i hadnt turned a door nob in over a year, and the novelty of it had me intrigued for a second. I got to my Mom's friends house in Rooty Hill and just marvelled at how i could actually control the door and the lock and i could walk out of it at any time . No more waiting for a guard to let me out. To you guys this probably sounds wierd as hell, and looking at it from a civilians perspective now it seems weird to me too. lol.

By far the hardest thing to get used to was privacy. In prison there is NO PRIVACY AT ALL. The toilets haave no stalls and are in plain view of everything. God, I could never get used to the embarrasment of having to use the bathrooms right infront of female guards. The showers were also completely open. And it felt so good to not have to shower with my back to the wall, and with 10 other guys.

All i can say is that it feels damn good to be free. I gotta live it up before the next semester of school starts, to make up for a year and a half of lost time.

It's gonna shock you guys to hear this, but in retrospect, Chino state prison is regarded as one of the weaker, safer prisons. I just feel fortunate i hadn't gone to the worst prisons in California: San Quentin, Pelican Bay, Calipatria, Iron wood, High Desert and Donovan. If i had gone there i most likely wouldn't have made it out, or if i had i would've had some serious blood on my hands, figuratively speaking.

Good question. I think in some ways it's been a blessing. It's given me a completely new perspective about life, I've walked on both sides of the tracks, i Know exactly where one ends up and what my life will be like if i chose to live that way. It's gives me the advantage of knowing all the right roads to take now. It gave me a lot of strength, and strangely enough pride. Although i shouldn't feel proud about going to prison, I'm proud of myself for getting through it. I went through a place that people fear so much they'd actually rather die than go to. I held my own against some of the most violent and dangerous people in California, that may not sound like much to the average person, but it speaks mountains to me.

Then on the other hand. It's been a curse. Prison's designed to break you, period. I didn't break me but it shook me up a lot. I don't know if i'll ever get over what I went through, or if the anxiety will ever go away. Prison's a place that makes you think that, this is it. This is the way my life will be and this is all I'm good for. It's really hard to explain, but plainly said. Prison put's you down. I'm still feeling the effects of it and i'm hoping this will pass with time.

I can't really decide if the positives effects of prison outweigh the negatives or vise versa. Al I can say is that I wish I hadn't gone through it..

ok well if you live in rooty hill the usual Syd meets are at P6 in homebush, id say maybe a 40min to a hour drive from were you are.

what car are you planning to get? I had a quick go over your myspace and saw what im guessing is a car you used to own in the states? something Z series as i could make out on the steering wheel?

what are you planning on getting? a silvia i assume? (well why else would you be on NS.com right?)

were u a slender build before you went in, then, had to bulk up to help defend yourself from harm and have now come out a tank, or did u just wing it, cause i know a few people who have been to jail over here, but they just recon its cause there is nothing else to do exept gym so they all bulk up.


on a simmilar topic, what is the name of that newish comedy movie out about the guy who is scared and bulks up before going to jail and then runs the joint, supposed to be funny a mate was telling me but i forgot the name..... anyone?

I remember one of my mates got out (well I didn't actually realise he was in at the time until he was just about to get out), and he kept having double helpings of dessert for about 2 months afterwards. He seemed to go back to normal (no anxiety) after about 3 months. For the first few weeks he was very sensitive to any slight dispute, so he had to keep away from his hard headed sister. The funniest thing was hearing him mimick all the conversations, as he is very good at mimicking other peoples voices, he even fooled my mum on the phone once pretending it was me. Someone smashed him in the head with a cricket bat in low security when he was asleep and tried to stab him, he turned at the last second and it got him in the arm instead of the heart, he then proceeded to thrash seven shades of shit out of the bloke. The next day, all previous naysayers and friends of the other guy said his name and nodded when they walked past him. He's a regular family guy now. We were watching a movie not long after he got out, "Getin' Square", he reckons at certain parts of the movie the whole jail would have yelled out. For example, if there was a Sunday night movie on and the "bank robber" got away from the cops or similar situations, you'd hear everyone yell out from the cells at the time of the escape or whatever, depending on the movie.
