Life In Prison

Just some ideas, thoughts and various ramblings for your enjoyment.

What I Value Most

My room mate asked me if there was one thing that I could change in myself right now what would it be? I told her, "Pride! I think pride is my biggest weakness." Humility has become all the more desirable to me here.  Many of…
