Hey! My name is Justin…You probably don’t hold high hopes in my ability to converse after that lame opening. To be honest, I’m kinda pessimistic myself, lol. I’ve been told I have a gift for communication and the further I get into this introduction, the more confident I’m becoming in the fact…that they were lying!
I’m…hmmm…the “union rep” of the facility’s inmate population which brings with it a never ending torrent of to-do’s that all too often preoccupy me. Outside of that, I’m into religion and politics; the two topics you’re not supposed to discuss with others (just my luck). I don’t rust people who dislike Country music. I suffer from a dry sense of humor and have been accused of being an “old soul”. Now that I’ve divulged a few of my shortcomings, it’s only fair you confess some of yours (smile).
What I’m looking for in a pen-pal (aside from the ability to put up with me) is someone who is intelligent, mature, independent, and wants to share (vent?) about their personal/professional life to someone who genuinely wants to listen. Also, someone who is open to the possibility of communicating through more than just correspondence in the future. Dummies and nefarious characters need not apply, I’m already surrounded by plenty, lol.
If I haven’t somehow managed to exclude you with this maze of expectations…we’re obviously meant to be friends (smile)!
So, what are your pet peeves, passions, and reasons for writing a prisoner?
