    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...

    Seriously Cockeyed Ideas

    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.
