    I'm never doing anything illegal again

    for the rest of my life. Jail is an awful, scary yet humbling experience. I will never drive drunk or evade arrest with a motor vehicle again, which is a felony by the way. Hey I was drunk out of my mind and scared. I'm not excusing my actions. I'm only pointing out that...

    Haircare For The Damned

    This was written while I was still in jail because I knew someday I would get out and wouldn't want to forget that at times it was absolutely hilarious. Especially looking back... Ode to Jail Hair Conditioner is a commodity in this place. I'm talking about Sauve conditioner not...

    I got out of federal prison in March

    and life is going good I learned a lot in prison and I'm not on drugs no more can be happy drug free. Meth almost took my life. God spared me in a meth lab explosion. 22%of my body was burnt. But he also spared my face. My arms and torso scared. But I'm alive and doing well.

    Seriously Cockeyed Ideas

    It's jail, right? Not prison. Prison gets a bad wrap from what I've heard compared to County. And there is a big difference. In Texas, where I'm from, this is the criminal shuffle, so to speak. You do whatever, ________ (fill it in), and you get caught. Spare me the...

    I'm 17 and i have been to jail 4 times.

    It is not something I am proud of. You wouldn't believe how grateful I am today I learned my lesson the hardest way. I decided to change my life all on my own because GOD has shown me how precious life really is alone. I don't take a single thing for granted today because the...

    Two Weeks Strong

    I wasn't going to bond out. I was going to sit there until court and do my time like a good little girl. I'd been trying to avoid time for so long that it was sort of relieving just to sit there, not to run anymore, not to deal with stupid probation and clean up for UA's, etc...
