    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...

    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...
