I wouldnt call it obsessed, but I feel like I need to understand the place where he is (at least a little bit). Im watchcing LockUp right now to be honest. I think the other documentary I was watching is a bit better. Some of them are very upsetting sometimes I have to turn it off.

Try not to get upsert.Thoe docs show the most extreme prisons and most extreme inmates. Somebody quietly servign their time for an average offence is not "news" It;s usually more mundame than anytihng else inside.

Obsessed but not in an unhealthy way. Iím trying to volunteer at Rikers right now at the womenís unit, and Iím very interested in prison activism and the prison industrial complex. Iíve always found the ďunderbellyĒ of society fascinating. Iím always researching and reading up.

Iíve also seen every episode of Lockup on Netflix, lol. It was really weird seeing one episode with Oak Park Heights, because I know someone who did time there.

Yes! YES!! YESSSS...!! I thought it was just me. Kinda makes me feel better that I'm not the only one. I do know what you mean by connection. I sleep with his letters tucked under my pillow. The last letter I got from him I hugged and cried a bit while clutching onto the unopened envelop.

I minored in Criminiology in College... I love the music and stories of Lyfe Jennings and some of Akons...

Anything Prison related. It makes me feel connected kind of. Is that weird?

Anyone else?

No, you're not the only one. I thought maybe I was for a long time, but my obsession has taken on a different angle then most. My ex, when he got out, could not stand biscuits and gravy. It just reminded him too much of his time inside, and inmate biscuits and gravy is not nearly as good as home made. Me, it was different; for the longest time, and even now I can't stand the color orange. Especially the dirty, drab orange, yet biscuits and gravy remain one of my favorites.

Also, my interest in all things prison/inmate sort of started while I was still inside county, except at the time I was a nervous wreck about my future, and didn't really feel safe enough to explore that interest. I didn't develop just an interest in inmate stuff either, but I developed a very real fascination with the court system in general. Again, I didn't feel safe enough at the time to really allow myself to explore that area, but now I totally do.

I've been giving it some seriously thought about even trying to become a lawyer. That's how deeply my fascination has been for it. Though it would be weird and very awkward if one of my clients turned out to be an old cellie. Or worse yet, if I came across an old acquaintance after having been appointed judge or something.

It might be wise to contact your state bar association to make sure your conviction won't prevent you from being admitted. It would be a shame to waste time and money on law school only to learn you can't practice.
