I have been having a great time readjusting back into society and breaking all those prison habits/quirks that unknowingly latched onto me (Such as not using a persons name when conversing with them). I am doing all that is expected of me by my parole officer (who has turned out to be a decent person), and am getting my personal life situated nicely with the help of my best friend Tony(and his great family), my girlfriend, my friend (and very active activist) Peggy Plews and a few other friends and family.
Part of my parole includes completing a course called "New Directions Offender Responsibility Lifeskills Course, by the American Community Corrections Institute. A home study course. A breeze for me to complete, however, it is obviously a simple sham course to bilk the parolee of $85.00 (to be sent in with the completed workbook). The course has some information that makes you think, but for the most part it seems to be poorly put together and not well thought out. In my eyes, it is just another greedy correctional predatory corporation prospering on the backs of the impoverished excon and his family. I will simply pay the fee, pass the course and move on in my adventure.
I may provide readers with all of my answers to the courses questions in a few weeks (i'd hate to fail it because I posted them prematurely). I haven't decided yet. I'd love to show everybody the $85.00 course's answers. I'd show the 60 page book, but that would likely be a copyright infringement. Wouldn't want that!
