Was it a sign of things to come today…

Holy shit… 

I’m sitting here working on this massive webseries movement to help advocate for others like myself who want to come home after incarceration and attempt to right their wrongs, and I get a text asking me if I knew this guy from the prison…

God, I already knew where this was going…

“Yeah,” I responded.

And then…

“Well, he died this morning at the prison…” The text back said.

I learn this guy only had three weeks left til his release…

And how he had put in an EMERGENCY slip to see medical and they responded to that by saying whatever was wrong with him wasn’t an emergency…

Damn.

This is sad on so many different levels…

Like how I just joked about the death of my phone this morning and then this happens…

Or how the prison medical department never ceases to amaze me with their lack of care or competency…

How I, again, knew this individual well who died…

“Quinn.”

A really GOOD dude…

Damn.

It’s all I can say…

And like I feel I’ve said too many times this year…

Rest in peace. 

  
  

Joewriteshiswrongs gets renovated…!

Hey everyone..!

Well as you can see I’ve cleaned the place up a bit..!

With as fast and forward as things are about to start moving around here, I felt like it was only right to spruce the look and feel of the site.

Let me know what you think about the changes…

There are still more changes underway too…

Everything that I’m working on here is in an effort to get us to where I  KNOW we can be here..!

Thank you all for your support..!

A GRIPPING TALE OF LIFE AND DEATH

I woke up this morning sick and barely clinging to life.

At least that is what it felt like.

But it wasn’t even being deathly ill that was on my mind first thing this morning when I woke up…

What WAS on my mind was the fact that my iphone…

My LIFE-LINE to all daily undertakings- was what appeared to be-

“Dead.”

My iphone is a hand-me down iphone…

It may have suffered a little wear and tear before winding up in my hands…

But since winding up in MY hands…

I have taken this phone to the brink of EXPLODING Everyday…

I probably run through more data on a daily basis than any number of government agencies…lol

With multiple apps and pages open 24/7 the only time I take my foot off of the gas-pedal is when I’m sleeping…

And as you might imagine…

I don’t sleep very often.

So when I woke up this morning, the first thing I did, as is what I do EVERY morning when I wake up, is I went and tried to see my notifications…

I usually wake up with about 50 notifications…

This morning, I woke up with zero…

And a black screen with a battery image flashing…

OK, I thought.

No big deal…

The battery on my iphone last a shorter amount of time than an old mans blatter…

So this wasn’t alarm raising by any stretch.

What was alarm raising though…

Was the fact that when I went and plugged my phone in…

It refused to charge.

I literally believe that I heard my phone subconsciously screaming at me…

Somethings about ” OH WHY WOULDN’T I JUST LET IT DIE IN PEACE ALREADY..!!! ”

Maybe I was just hearing things…

Panic quickly set in, as today, like any other day, was a HUGE day…

And I was going to need that phone in a MAJOR way…!

Without it…

I was…

Quickly I took decisive action..!

I began fiddling with the power cord.

Plugging the phone in…

Unplugging it…

The battery image just continued to flash…

What the hell was going on with this thing, I thought in a panicky state.

Then the one sided conversations began…

I cradled the phone in my gingerly hands and began  whispering to the phone…

“Hey…”

“Don’t do this to me OK..?”

“You’re all I’ve got in this world…”

PLEASE…!!!!”

Grief stricken, and in a manic state, I did what any sane minded able bodied man would do…

I tilted back the head of my iphone blocked air passage through the nasal cavity and began chest compression’s…

One.

Two.

Three.

Four.

Five.

Six.

Breath…

“YOUR NOT GOING TO FUCKING DIE ON ME…!” I screamed.

“NOT TODAY, YOU’RE NOT..!!” My bellowing continued.

After a short round of CPR, I realized my efforts may have all been in vain…

In all likelihood my iphone 4 had probably overdosed late into the night while I slept…

Overdosed on data…

There probably was just too much shit…

Too much DATA coursing through the veins of my poor little hand-me down phone…

And there wasn’t a damn thing I could do now to save it.

I started punching myself and blaming myself…

Grief stricken.

I never paid attention to the signs…

The times when the screen would just black out and kick me out of every open window, sending me back to the home screen…

Or even worse…

Cutting off altogether….

The times when the battery would be so HOT that I thought surely the phone was about to bust into flames at any moment…

Why the hell did I NOT pick up on these signs..!?!

I let this happen.

I could have prevented this…

It was over for me.

My cell phone was gone and it was ALL my fault.

All of my life’s work temporary put on pause and held up until I could find a way to replace that major artery that pumps life sustaining fluid into all of what I do on a daily basis.

So many questions began to flood my mind…

The “hows..”

The “whys…”

I couldn’t think straight.

I couldn’t function…

Then just as I was ready to abandon all hope, entirely…

The damn thing came to life…!

It turned ON..!

Holy shit..! I thought.

My iphone had somehow resurrected itself from the dead..!

It was back..!

The home screen was right there..!

There were 50 notifications..!

Hope for humanity was not lost after all..!

And that’s it…

That’s the story of what I JUST woke up to and had to deal with.

Sick as f&%k on Sunday…! Update.

It’s Sunday afternoon as I attempt to type this with my “gimped” hand and my immune system in the dumpster…

Oh my God, it hurts pretty damn bad right about now…

Plus, I think I’ve got Ebola…

But I have to tolerate the pain so I can get this post typed up because there is much that I have to get too here…

First let me start with a “thanks” to all of you who have been commenting and offering up your feedback to these dilemmas that I’ve been facing out here…

Your opinions matter a lot to me and really help me to see things full-circle…

It’s nice to get an outside opinion to life’s difficulties and tough decisions…

So, again, thank you.

Next, I know I said yesterday that I would reblog and spotlight the awesome content of you out there…

And to be honest, I just didn’t have enough time to get all that done yesterday…

Not to say I wasn’t trying to and not to say that I’m still not going to do that…

I’m actually in the process of getting to that right this second.

More on that later, and you’ll see what I mean with that…

Also, yesterday a HUGE forward step was embarked upon…

I met someone yesterday…

Not just anyone, either…!

I found my cameraman yesterday…!

Someone who took the time to come and meet with me, hear my pitch towards bigger and brighter things with our names spelled out on the Marquee…

download (7)

This guy believed in me, and now…

We’re off to the races..!

We kicked around some ideas and then took some time to shoot a little footage…

The videos posted later on the youtube channel are the result of our efforts…

Oh, and by the way, my cameraman also knows how to edit as well…

So the videos posted later are drastically better than the videos I’ve posted prior to all this.

Please be on the lookout for those, and check them out and let me know what you think of them…

It’s through these videos that I’m hoping to spotlight the content of some of you, as well..!

So, now you really gotta check out the videos just to see how and what I did with that…!

After shooting was done, I had to get ready for the hellacious laundry gig…

images (11)

Man..!

What a GRUELING shift that turned out to be last night..!

I literally thought i was going to fall asleep on my feet last night..!

Plus my hand was KILLING me..!

Plus I was SICK AS A DOG..!

What a combination of bullshit I had to deal with with all that..!

But a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do right…?

Yep..!

So I sucked it up, even though I felt like I was going to die..! lol

And I managed to get through the night…

Somehow…

There’s a lot more to this laundry gig that I feel should be mentioned…

But I’ll leave that for another post…

Definitely a pretty interesting place, that’s for sure.

Also, there’s a NEW job prospect that I’m going to look into this upcoming week..!

I’ll talk more about this in another post, as well.

There’s a lot on the way from Joewriteshiswrongs…

Including a webseries for crying out loud..! lol

What a time to be here… Sort of like at the shovels in the dirt stage of things with an empire about to be constructed from that…

Big things are about to happen..!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What would you do..?

OK…

So let me try one more time to tell you about this pizza place job and the problem that has come to surface with it…

I hope my computer will be gracious enough to allow me to type this up and get it posted before deciding to crash again…

Yeah…

That was the issue I ran into yesterday with this post.

OK…

So I started working the pizza place job on Wednesday, and I also worked it again  yesterday…

This was my first week on the job.

I was only scheduled to work a total of 8 hours for this first week…

That’s crazy right..?

Then, last night was slow…

And I was sent home an hour early..!

I worked a total of 7 HOURS my first @ $7.25 an hour.

That’s like $38 bucks after taxes…

C’MON, REALLY..!

What the hell can you buy with $38 bucks anyways..?

You can feed 2 people at McDonalds with a little left over for $38 smackeroos..!

That’s about it.

I gotta admit something here, as well….

I really do not like this job.

I mean, maybe I’ll letting the negatives cloud my judgement here a little…

But there really are A LOT of negatives…

Like for example only working 7 hours a week…

Or being 33 years old and working in a pizza place where everyone else is like-

12.

I mean, I think I’m the oldest employee there..!

The MANAGER is even younger than me for crying out loud..!

No.

Seriously, he is…

I even have a picture of him…

download (6)

Yep… That’s the little piece of shit that I work for…

OK…

So biases aside for a moment…

There really is a point to all this other than me just bitching about the job…

The point is that I realized there is likely to be a conflict of interest that comes into play and very soon too…

Possibly as early as next weekend…!

And that conflict of interest is when I’m scheduled to work at the pizza place on the same night that I’m scheduled to work at a banquet or at the laundry gig…

What am I supposed to do then…?

I mean, the pizza place has a VERY strict policy about calling in…

YOU CAN’T.

And I don’t want to go work at the pizza place and make like 30 or 40 bucks in a night, when I could make double that at either of the other two jobs…

I tried talking with the manager yesterday about not scheduling me on the weekends and he just basically laughed it off like I was kidding or something..!

I guess I can understand that, too…

I mean, the weekends have to be the busiest time for the pizza place…!

So it’s sort of like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place…

What the hell am I supposed to do in this situation..?

Settle for less money when MORE money is what I need most..!

I can’t do that..!

So I bring this to all of you and I hope for your feedback…

What do you recommend that I do..?

Should I just quit the pizza place out right..?

Please comment and let me know your thoughts.
