Post Release Update #1

Posted: June 9, 2014 in Uncategorized

So I am writing this because I wanted to give everyone an update to my situation and to let everyone know that I am ok.
On March 24th 2014 I was released from Federal Prison. My parents came that weekend with my girls whom I had not seen in 10 months prior. We had a great visit and was even better that Monday morning when I walked out of the prison after being incarcerated for almost a year n a half. It was a moment I will never forget.
With my brother driving and me and my girls sitting in the back seat we headed off to Fresno which is where the halfway house I was to report to was at. I know Fresno! I was told I would only be there for two weeks and released to home confinement after that. Well I was lied to cause it is June 8th and I am still here!
This place is ok. Well Im not in prison anymore so it is a much better situation. It is a requirement that while I stay here I either work, go to school, or volunteer.  At first I was volunteering because I like giving back and because I didnt think I’d be here that long, but when I found out that I was going to be here til July, that is when I decided to get a job. So I did and I currently work at a chicken farm called Foster Farms.  May have heard of it. Let me first start off by saying I don’t do manual labor. I have never done manual labor in my life. My new job is nothing but manual labor. I load pallets that come off of two conveyor belts on to pallets to get shipped off to grocery stores. And these cases weigh between 60 to 80 lbs each. I stack each pallet with 50 cases. I do this all day 10 hours a day and if Im lucky 12 hours. But its just another step to me getting home so I must do it.
And my favorite part of this experience is I ride a bike to work everyday. My job is 6 miles away….in Fresno heat!!!! So everyday I ride 12 miles to and from work…oh wait there is a bonus I have to tell you about. Apparently Fresno has a loose dog epidemic.  Yeah people buy these mean ass dogs and then let them lose. I get chased almost everyday by dogs when I ride my bike. There is one dog that literally waits for me. The other day I was riding home and listening to my music when the end of the song came. That’s when I hear it. It was growling and snarling. I thought it was my stomach cause I was hungry but when I looked to my right there was a pitbull 3 feet awat from my leg! After I saw tgat I may have screamed…cant remember. ..but I do remember peddling as fast as I could and that dog was keeping up pace trying to get me! Thankfully he got tired and slowed down and finally stopped chasing me. The odds are against me. Playing the numbers game Im eventually going to get caught.
But this is my life at this moment. I may not be where I should be in life but Im thankful that Im not where I was. I am staying positive and I keep reminding myself that this too will one day pass. So no matter how hard your life may seem to be remember it isnt permanent and it will one day pass. Just don’t give up.
So that’s what is going on now in my life. I am scheduled to be released July 7th to Sacramento.  It has been a long journey but Im in the tunnel and I see that light.
I’ll write again real soon. Thank you all for your support.
