You've Been Approved

How's it going? Excuse me if I'm a little slow this morning, but I woke up right at the 7:30 General Work Call, so I had 10 minutes to get dressed, make my bed, brush my teeth, and get all the way across campus to work. It was close, but I made it with a few extra seconds to spare! :-) Needless to say, I'm still a little sleepy.

Well, you've finally been approved for visitation to the Waseca Federal Correctional Institute. Sorry it took so long, but I had to wait for Mom to mail your address and phone # before I could submit you for approval. And once I got that, my counselor was on vacation for a week and a half, so I couldn't give it to him. I just got it in last week.

It would be good to see you if you get a chance to swing down. Not only have I not been able to talk to you in a while, but it's nice to see people that don't disgust you. It's like some sort of evil summer camp here most of the time - you can't leave, there's so much dirt in the living units you'd swear you're surrounded by nature, and 90% of the people you see 24 hrs a day act like 6 year olds. Most of the time I don't know whether to punch someone or to just run into the bathroom and throw up. But it could be worse. It's only 4 years and at least I can write you guys and have some sort of connection to normality.

Not much new is going on here. I'm still waiting to get into UNICOR. I started a drug education program 2 hrs every M, W, and F morning for 6 weeks. It's mostly information that has nothing to do with me, but I've caught a couple of good nuggets about values and such that kind of make you think. I'm also still in spanish twice a week and it's slowly coming back.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you can swing by any weekend you feel like. Talk to you later.

P.S. Tell Joy I said "Hi".
