Another year gone. Damn I can’t believe I’ve been locked up 12 years now. I hate the idea that I’ve been gone that long. I never seen myself being locked up longer than 10 years and the realization of actually having to serve the whole 20 year sentence is scary. Of course I’ll deal with it just like I have anything else in life. I am a survivor after all. I just need to set my goals for the next 8 years. Now that’s the hard part. I need to keep my mind occupied. Yet I have no idea what to do next. What can I do to better myself? I’ve always kept a positive outlook on this experience but it gets harder every day that goes by….
