Hi, my name’s Johnny. I’m handwriting this profile with pen and paper in a concrete cell, where I am now, because six years ago I made the worst decision of my life by driving after my thirtieth birthday party, resulting in a fatal but unintended DWI car accident. I never meant to hurt anyone, and I’m sorry I did, so I plead guilty. That said, they blindsided me by giving me a life sentence, making parole first possible 2040.
That’s why I’m here but not who I am. Life is about improving all the way through the one we’ve been given, so I live my life with kindness, compassion, tolerance, and an open mind. I hope to never stop learning and some of my most valuable and toughest lessons were taught in here. Perhaps we cannot always control the situation we’re in, but we can control our response to it.
I’m reaching out to you because it’s said, “the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships”, which is true. We can get to know each other from the inside out; a valuable rarity these days. We can talk about music we love, Tool, Staind, Radiohead, Alanis; books we enjoy, Gillian Flynn, R.R., Martin, Metaphysical, Spiritual; experiences growing up, struggles, blessings, or hopes and dreams. I’m fiercely loyal and speak truthfully, with nothing to hide and no topics off limits. I like to have fun and laugh, so expect lots of that.
I’m waiting for you with an open and loving heart. Maybe, I always have been.
