I’ve had plenty of time to reflect on myself and my circumstances, and now with my sentence getting shorter and loneliness kicking in, I’ve been on a personal quest lately to find my love after lockup, while watching 90 day fiancé on TLC every Sunday and Monday faithfully. While manifesting that special woman I desire in my life to fill this empty void. I’ve resorted to posting ads on a few pen pal sites and to my surprise, I’ve actually connected with some interesting people from all over the world. It’s always refreshing to bridge the gap and bring two worlds together. Unfortunately, I’ve yet to find that special someone.

Imagine it’s late at night, approaching the midnight hours and you’re bored laying in bed watching television, but nothing seems to be worth watching…just when you start to doze off you’re awoken by the sounds of sad music and on the television screen are depictions of dogs and cats. The ASPCA person starts speaking, “for the low amount of only $19.00 a month, that’s less than .63 cents a day…YOU can help one of these abandoned and abused animals that have been left behind cold and starving. Sometimes I feel like a Pound Puppy, trapped in the Humane Society, often viewed and people say things like, “you’re so cute”. However, for whatever reason these same people never actually make the commitment.

Regardless, I’m staying committed to being a better person and I’m inspired by those who succeed. Besides, I’ve been down so long that I have no choice but to come up.
