Inmate Blog Category:Holiday Thoughts
I want you to know there are some sincere people in prison. I’m not saying there are a lot, but there are a few, and I’m thankful for WriteAPrisoner.com, for helping us to find a pen pal, because in my own opinion, the prison administration could care less if we have pen pals or people who care about us.
The holidays are coming. I sure hate to spend them alone. I would very much like to get to know you. I will answer any and all letters, and I’ll do my best to make each letter fun, and better than the last.
I hope you find it in your heart to write. I base all friendships on trust and honesty. I was raised with morals and values. I made a mistake and now I’m paying my debt to society. Please don’t hold it against me. I’ve learned from my mistakes.
I’m looking for a friendship and someone who enjoys writing and receiving mail. Age, race and gender, I don’t care, I will write anyone. Come and spend the holiday season with a man who really needs a friend, 2014 is just around the corner.
So sit up and smile because you have found someone, like you are looking for, to pass time and get to know. I am someone who is respectful, with manners, and I don’t play any games. I’ve learned that friendship is very hard to find and I am hoping, there is someone out there just like you. I want to make your day, hearing from you would sure make mine. (smile) I hope you have a happy holiday, I hope to hear from you soon. If you get a chance write me, even if it’s just to say Hi. Today starts a new day.

THE OPTIMISTIC CREED
The Optimistic Creed…….I promise myself to be strong and nothing can disturb my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person that I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile I them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best. To be enthusiastic about the success of others as I am of my own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press onto the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet. To give so much time to improve myself that I have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, NOT IN LOUD WORDS, but in great deeds. To live in the faith that the world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you….”Promise yourself”….

Inmate Blog Category:HOLIDAYS
HAPPY HOLIDAYS….Just wanted to say hi to my viewers. I have some news I would like to share with you. Well I just got promoted to the ‘Board of Directors’ for a class I facilitate. The class is called U.S.E.L.F. (Understanding Self Equals Life’s Foundation). It’s for inmates by inmates. The curriculum centers on many aspects of an individual’s thought process. I try to help others understand that our present surroundings don’t dictate the person we are capable of becoming. Prison has its way of pulling people into depression or simply filling one’s mind of feeling worthless. I like to remind my students that we can still strive to become better men and make our loved ones proud. Enough of all that, I just wanted to share my good news with you and hopefully you will share something with me. So the weather is getting cold and wet, which is fine with me. I’m a born and raised Oregonian (smile) so I enjoy relaxing with a cup of hot cocoa and watching movies. Hopefully we get some good horror flicks for Halloween but I’m really lookin forward to X-mas movies. Especially the classic “X-mas Story.” I like the part where the kid brother eats his potatoes like a “little piggy”…HAAHA Alrighty then, I’m gonna end this blog. I sincerely hope you enjoy the holidays and hopefully you’ll allow me to share them with you. Your friend, JT….. Song: Turn on the Lights………. Artist: Future

Why are people attracted to lifestyles that lead them away from the free world? Fast money and meaningless females who only mean no good…I personally know I’ll be able to do the right thing and find a job. And possibly one day soon start a business; but will I be able to find a meaningful lady I can admire. Is there a girl out there that can make me laugh? One who will honestly care and not be stuck on some b.s.!!! Why are some females attracted to bad boys? Why do some play games? I guess it’s the lifestyle. I know there’s got to be a chick out there who is all feminine and is girlie girlie with a big happy spirit and loves to laugh, but dang, where are you!?!?!?!?! What can a guy do to win a heart without the insecurities? Explain to me what makes you tick??? Does everything have to be sexual or can it be totally platonic? If you’re up for the conversation, feel free to write!

Inmate Blog Category:Politics in Prison
POLITICAL PRISONER……..I’m a political prisoner in an ongoing battle against corrupt government officials in the court system attempting to keep me hidden behind these prison walls trying to prevent the truth about my wrongful imprisonment coming out to the light. Since my return back to court on March 26, 2007 I been continuously thrown in the hole under false accusations of being a STG (Security Threat Group) affiliate and “Known Leader” for an organization called Almighty Latin Kings, all this simply to justify placing me in the hole for further harassment. (Taking away privileges such as visitations and phone calls.) A tactic believed to be designed to target minimizing my communication with family and friends, wishing to undermine my support system while this case in court is pending. I’ve opened various pen pal profiles wishing to maintain communication with the outside world, but my letters get misplaced and in the hands of the wrong prisoner, an attempt to prevent people like yourself (fighters, warrior) from reaching me, you can learn more about this situation by finding my blog on other pen pal sites (Prison Inmates). I will accept and appreciate any and all assistance you extend me. I will respond immediately. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincere, Arturo

Inmate Blog Category:Relationships
With it going on 8 years in January since my sister died from alcohol abuse, I can’t help wondering if my being there would have changed anything? I used to be a drunk too, so I don’t think I’d of been a great influence on her. Some might say it’s just our way to be drunks, as natives. I won’t blame history for being the way I was before prison. I got that teaching from my dad. He was a drunk too. I can’t help wondering what my sister was running from, why did she follow our same path? I guess if I’d have looked at her life outside of the surface glances I gave it; it would be possible I’d not be in the dark now. I miss my sister so much still today. We did not grow up together, so I missed out on so much to begin with. It was only after our dad died that we came back into each other’s lives. Sometimes I want to cry for her but I don’t. This is prison; I can’t look weak in front of these guys. What a foolish world I live in. When I sit in the sweat lodge is the time I can show the pain I have for my sister. I pray she is in a better place and that I have the strength to be a better brother to my other sisters.

ONE DAY AT A TIME
YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW......There are two days of every week that we should not worry about. Two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One is yesterday with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains, yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday, we cannot undo a single act we performed, nor can we erase a single word we’ve said, yesterday is gone!! The other day we shouldn’t worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible adversities, its burdens, its hopeful promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our control. Tomorrow the sun will rise within splendor or behind a bank of clouds but it will rise. And until it does we have no stake in tomorrow for it is yet born. This leaves us one day. TODAY. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down. It is not the experiences of today that drives people mad—it is the remorse for something that happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore live one day at a time. I was given these words by a friend while fighting my criminal charges and do my best to try and keep them close to heart, but it often seems hard when daily life seems to be getting the best of me.

Inmate Blog Category:Friendship
My profile has blessed me with some wonderful new friends in my life. Receiving your mail lifts my spirits. To have people share my life with gives me strength to get through each day here. However, I reach out with this blog in hopes to attract a few more special people. In the summer months I play softball and participate in many activities. Now that the winter months are here my time grows lonely, just as the holidays approach. Other than an Accounting class there is not much else that fills my time.
If you are interested in getting to know more about me, I’ll be awaiting your response. *Please note the facility does not allow self-addressed labels.
