I went to meet my parole officer today…

So really today was the second time I had to meet with probation and parole… 

The first time was day after my release from prison…

That day just pretty much consisted of me pissing in a cup all the while standing in a bathroom that had more double-sided mirrors than an interrogation room…

Yeah… That wasnt a pleasant experience… 

Sort of reminds me of an old throwback story you can find here on joewriteshiswrongs … 

“The craziest Piss test ever…” 

Definitely an oldie but goodie that I highly recommend you check out.

So yeah…

The whole piss test thing was during the first meeting last week…

This meeting was more of a refresher course in the do’s and don’t of being on parole…

Hey did you know I’m not permitted to carry or transport a firearm..?

Who the hell would have ever guessed that..!

During this meeting, We went over all the stipulations of what parole required us to do…

Oh yeah. And I mention “us” because there was about five of us in this little conference room…

All freshly released from prison…

All trying to adjust in our own way to a world that is undoubtedly different than when we last left it…

Which by the way, gave me a great idea…

I’m thinking about not only chronicling my own journey…

But maybe even the lives of others who are similar to me…

Trying to write their own wrongs in their own sort-of way…

There could really be something to that…

It was crazy too…

Just going into this meeting with probation and parole…

As soon as I got there, there was some woman from some half way house telling the receptionist that some guy would no longer be residing at the half way house and that charges would be taken out on him…

I would later learn from some chick who also stayed at the half way house that the guy in question had stole a big screen tv from the house….

I couldn’t help but shake my head…

JOE’S COMING HOME, FINALLY!

Whats up everyone..!? 

The end of this incarceration is finally right around the corner for me…

Who the hell would have imagine I’d make it to the end of all this damn time to finally be in a position to where I was about to be free man 

again..?

After seven years I feel like I’m about to walk out to a world that’s completely changed…

I mean, ive never even seen a smart phone… Not in real life anyways…

I feel like I left the world during the stone age and I’m coming back out there to that T.V. show, ‘Minority Report’…

Its like back to the future for me…

And all of that is about to happen in Tee minus 6 days and counting.

Can you imagine what it’s going to be like for me getting back out there to the real world and trying to get my life back on track..?

Well, you wont have to wonder much…

Because everything is going to be chronicled on,
‘JOEWRITESHISWRONGS 2.0’…

Video blogs are coming immediately after I’m released…

You will see everything…

All that I have to do right after my release… 

From something as simple as trying to get some clothes…

To something a lot more complex like going to see probation and parole…

You’ll be able to watch me enjoying my first 24 hours as a free man…

Food…

Friends…

Fun…

Then comes the not so fun stuff…

Trying adjust to a world that’s so much different from the one I’ve known for so long now.

Then finding a job…

Learning and trying to catch up with all the new technology that’s come out since I’ve been gone…

Then all the things I hope to pursue after my release, too…

Everything will be recorded…

Everything will be posted…

And all of you will be able to see, firsthand, Joe just trying to write his wrongs, for real… And after so long spent away…

“Getting out of prison after 7 years…”

Whats up, everyone…

Well I hope you enjoyed my last post about a guy here who is dating his sister….

YUCK…!

I’ve got a few different ideas for my next big post.

One is about my new best friend. This guy just moved in the bunk next to mine. His name is Larry. He’s a complete psychopath, too. I really like Larry. His story is probably one of the most interesting that I have ever told you here when it’s all said and done too. But that will come a little later.

There’s also this other thing I’m debating telling you about too. Its pretty interesting as well. But I’m a little hesitant at the moment…

We’ ll see I guess. This mystery post that I speak of is relative to some things going on at the moment… So its sort of based on how that plays out.

So what CAN I tell you about right now…

Well, for starters, how about the fact that I only have 30 something days left..!

Wow… This last little bit of time is really flying by. But i guess that’s to be expected when you really are more scared than excited to be getting out.

I sort feel like I might end up like Billy Bob Thorton in that movie ‘Slingblade’…

Remember how he got out of prison after years spent there and he didn’t even know what to do out there in the world..?

He ended up walking back to the prison the next day hoping they would let him come back in…

Ok.

Well, maybe my situation won’t be that severe. At least I hope not..!

Fact of the matter is though that time is flying for a guy about to be tossed back out into the world with not much more than himself and some hope…

Hell, I still don’ t even have a place to go yet. I’m telling ya…

That cardboard box behind 7-11 is looking more and more like my reality by the day now.

Homeless.

So…

How will all this work out for a guy who is about to be released from prison after 7 looong years and with nothing…?

Well, who knows actually.

But the good news is you’ll get to see every bit of it from the moment I’m released and walking out of these gates.

Yep, that’s right.

If nothing else is guaranteed for me, one thing is…

My homeboy Matt is going to be here to pick me up with a video camera to film every second of whats to come after my release.

So, even if I am homeless…

at least there will be a video blog about it. lol.

Its crazy too…

As I’m trying to get this typed up, I just came back from chow where I ran into a guy who remembered me from the prison I was at prior to being transferred here…

Well, I just figured he got transferred here from that other prison, too.

But turns out he had gotten released and came back to prison in that time…

He told me he didn’t last 90 days out there in the free world before he got locked back up again…

90 DAYS…!

THAT’S CRAZY..!

Damn, I gotta make it out there…

I mean I look at all this stuff like its a sign…

Something I’m supposed to see to further prove just how important me giving it my all is out there.

To wrap this up, I’ll tell you one other little tidbit kind of cool yet completely off topic….

I’m now able to type up emails and blogs from my little mp3 player-like device…

So, I’m sitting at my bunk with the closest thing I’ve ever had to any sort of touch screen device typing away on this thing calling this my smart phone training…

I’m not very good at typing on this thing…

My fingers are too big.

The buttons are too small.

But I guess this is the world I must prepare myself for…

A world where things aren’t as easy as I might have originally thought they were.

And a world, like what the guy who didn’t last 90 days just told me…

Is totally different than it was 7 years ago.

:/

”incarcerated incest… brother sister boyfriend girlfriend”

So I told you before how there’s this guy I’m locked up with who is dating his own flesh and blood sister…

well, folks… its time for you to meet ”wowder.”

Of course this isn’t his real name or even his real nickname for that matter.

But, its close.

Very close.

I felt I had to protect this guys real identity. And plus, ”wowder” is a way better nickname…

you know, like wow-der is actually a guy here in prison who is dating his own flesh and blood sister..!

There’s another funny little tidbit to add to all this as well…

actually a first for me in fact…

one day, I was sitting here drawing a cartoon about this guy when he walked right up on me as I was drawing it..!

Something like that has never happened before..!

When I go to draw a cartoon about someone, I like to make sure that person isn’t around. Especially if the cartoon could cause us to be fighting immediately.

This was one of those such occasions and cartoons.

Here’s how that went down…

before I started drawing, I looked around the housing unit to find out where this disgusting specimen of human life was at.

oh… there he was.

On the phone, as usual…

talking to his sister girlfriend.

“Great”, I thought.

I then began work on putting together my masterpiece.

But, as what usually happens when drawing, I quickly got lost in the moment.

I soon became focused solely on what I was creating…

That’s very bad, Joey.

Something someone would likely say to me.

And yep…

it most certainly was because out of nowhere came this incestuous bastard right over my shoulder..!

”What’s up, man..?” wowder said to me as he sat down in the chair right in front of mine.

”Oh, not much..!” I said in response as I balled up my little Picasso like creation. I was pained by the very fact I had to do so. Yet, I didn’t know what else to do at that moment.

I then tossed the rumpled, ruined cartoon aside and said ”what’s up with you..?”

Someone asked me why I balled up the cartoon in the first place and the reason is simply because there was no denying the fact of who or what this cartoon depicted.

It was bad.

Right to the point also…

and kind of funny too.

Oh, and right now, its en route to Matt soon to be posted here on ‘Joewriteshiswrongs’..!

A rumpled, ruined mess for your enjoyment.

But all of this is just a footnote of sorts to the main premise of what this post is all about.

I mean, ‘hello…’

there is a guy here who is DATING is very own flesh and blood SISTER..!

Maybe you wonder how this could be…

or how all this came about…

well, here’s the hypothesis me and my homeboy put together based on some known facts…

first) the sister just spent 7 years in prison.

When she got out about 14 months ago she contacted her long lost and estranged half brother who is and was also in prison.

Well, wowder is a pretty lonely guy i’m sure at the time… probably hasn’t had a lot in the form of female companionship throughout the course of his life… and most certainly not while in prison either… so because of that is it really that hard to imagine that a guy like this COULD fall in love with his sister..?

OF COURSE IT IS..!

THAT’S CRAZY RIGHT..?!

Then maybe because the sister is just as fucked up in the head or maybe even more than wowder is… she also thinks there is nothing wrong with being boyfriend and girlfriend while also at the same time being brother and sister…

viola…

a disgusting romance blossoms.

Wowder has even since TATTOOED sis’s name on his hand so now they are bonded for life in another way besides blood.

Pretty crazy right..?

Well, if you think so then allow me to add to that…

lets end on a high here shall we..?

Let me tell you something pretty disturbing I overheard wowder say one day while on the phone…

he was on the phone right next to me and he was obviously arguing with his sister girlfriend when he said the craziest damn thing…

he said ”you can’t leave me, we’re family..!”

wow, right..?

Oh and by the way if that isn’t enough by itself…

wowder is sort of like my life coach…

he gives me some pretty great relationship advice.

kind of ironic isn’t it.

what’s been going on with Joe

So as I attempt to adjust to this new blogging format of racing against the clock… typing all of my post up on this machine that I only have 20 minutes on at a time, I hope you’ll be understanding if my writing isn’t as ”clean” as I’d like it to be… there might be more mistakes due to my attempt to speed type these posts…

Oh and by the way… I haven’t touched a keyboard in almost 7 years.

So I’m a little rusty to say the least.

You know, there’s a whole lot I really wish I had the time to tell you about….

Like how I just recently got moved to the short timers housing unit and how crazy things are over here…

Especially with trying to get on the phones and how I’m now constantly battling because of them due to this new chick who just recently came into my life like a gift from God…

Oh yeah, and I should probably mention that this new chick just recently came into my life like a gift from God:)

thats sort of a big thing too.

I could also tell you just how jacked up my homeplan situation is… I did just put in an address the other day to get approved but its not a guarantee to say the least… I mean, I really still don’t have anything stable lined up at the moment and that’s a pretty scary thought…

I’ve reached out to a lot of people…

family.

friends.

pretty much everyone responded the same way… 

sorry about your luck buddy…

hope it works out.

Or, I could go back to the phone situation again and tell you about this one guy who is always on the phone making it harder for other guys to get on the phone because he always wants to talk to his girlfriend… 

and how his girlfriend is his blood sister..!

You just can’t make up this sort of shit and believe me…

There will be cartoons about this guy very soon.

Yeah, I guess the phones are sort of a big thing right now because there’s just so much I’m trying to get worked out for my very upcoming release. And a lot of these guys in this short timers housing unit like to stay on them constantly…

then again, so do I…

i.e… due to my new amazing girlfriend.

yeah, I’m definitely going to have to tell you all about her pretty soon.

But for now there is just so much I wish I could tell you all about…

unfortunately, I just don’t have the time too…

Because it took me 20 minutes to type this.

“Joe’s Coming Home in less than 2 Months…

Well, this certainly isn’t the post I had planned on going with here… I had a lot of other awesome content I was going to use. But unfortunately things happened that ended up making all of that not really what I want to be posting about right this second…

Sad really, because I put a lot into all that material. 

But I guess that’s sort of how it is when things are constantly changing day to day and you never know what the next 24 hours is going to bring you.

Things are always happening in my life it seems lately as I get closer and closer to the end of this crazy journey I’ve been on for so long now…

some good…

a lot bad…

but none the less things are always happening. and at the risk of sounding sort of cliche… there’s never a dull moment it seems…

I guess what is pretty relevant right now is the fact that today I just put an address in for my homeplan… 

That was sort of a big thing considering for so long I’ve been looking for an address and somewhere to stay once this is over and done with.

Well, today I just might have found at least part of that solution and now I just have to wait and see if the address I used gets approved.

I guess if all else fails I could end up staying in a cardboard box behind 7-11.

Kidding.

Also, thanks to my good friend matt I now have access to the much needed video camera that will help take ‘Joewriteshiswrongs’ to the next level.

There’s a good chance matt will be coming to pick me up on my release date, and with that video blogs will become a pretty regular occurrence here, so look forward to that.

Other than that, this is pretty much just a fly by night type of post. or something…

something to let you know im still here…

but not for too much longer.

Joewriteshiswrongs Continues to Explain Some Things

First, thanks to all of you for the ”welcome backs.” It means a lot because I had been gone for awhile and coming back I feel a lot of support. So, thanks to you all for that…

Some of you might be wondering how it is that I’m able to continue blogging from prison now that Jen and I are no longer together…

Well, the answer to that is thanks to my very good friend Matt. 

When Jen and I split, Matt stepped up in a huge way to help me bounce back. He really helped me get things back on track and also provided me the support needed to keep things moving forward.

Without Matt’s help, I can say with certainty that things would not be going too good right now. And to be honest, its because of Matt that things are really going GREAT for me in some regards…

Maybe not everything is so great. I mean I still don’t have anywhere to go when this is over in 60 DAYS..!

But, aside from that little catastrophic nightmare, some things are really going pretty damn good for me.

So, what happened to me and Jen? You might wonder…

Well, the easiest way to put it is that after two LONG years, we just grew apart…

She wanted what she wanted and I wanted what I did… we just became unhappy being together. And, we decided because of that the best course of action was to just end it. No hard feelings. It’s honestly better this way. I mean, I’m a lot happier now that it’s over and I’m sure she is too.

Plus, I’ve moved on and I’m sure she has too. And for that I am very happy. I wish nothing but the best for her and hopefully she wishes the best for me, too.

So, with that being said let’s move on, shall we…

During this little hiatus, or time I was forced to be away from things here, a lot has happened. 

Also, a lot of you reached out to offer your support.

A lot of you offered support not only for ‘Joewriteshiswrongs’, but also me as well. Through letters, emails, cards and just overall words of encouragement, all of you really provided me inspiration to continue working towards my ultimate goal of getting out of here and finally being able to make something of myself.

I just want to say thank you all for that.

There’s so much to tell you all about and I feel like we’re getting ready to dive into all of that as soon as my next post. I just wanted to try and explain things a little better before attempting to get the ball rolling here again.

One last thing to mention before I wrap this up. I now blog from the machine in my housing unit where I do my email from…

I’m given 20 minutes, 3 times a day to get all that I must done here… emails… blogs…

so with that I hope it doesn’t affect my writing to much as I race the clock to say all that I attempt too.

Well, there’s a ton to talk about. And we’re getting ready to take off again. 

Check back soon for whats to come.
