A: Dear Joe, I got to thinking about some more ragenel-ish questions I have for you. Mostly in regards to stuff that I (and other readers) might be curious about but either haven't asked, or haven't thought much about.What is your daily routine like? Do you ever feel like you get stuck in a rut?Do you still have your job after being transferred out and back in?What time do the lights go out? Is it dark or is there still *some light* in your cell?Do you have a window?How long can someone stay in the same cell? Is there a time limit before they are forcibly moved by the staff?If you could bring anything into jail what would you bring?What is the most useful thing you can obtain on the inside? (regardless of contraband status)Is it possible to be happy in prison? Speaking of happiness as a feeling not necessarily in regards to the situation of being a prisoner. (unless some people are indeed happy to be a prisoner?)Do people have magazines sent to them? Is there a limit to how many?Are people with names mentioned frequently during mail call targeted (out of jealousy) more than people that seldom receive mail? Have you found that to be a problem in your situation? (I assume using e-mail is less public'?)Is there a sought after service provided within prison? Like-wise is it better to have a hustle in prison to get the things you need or is it better to lay low, and just buy the stuff with money sent to you?How does the check in' you mentioned in your previous reply work? How do people check in, is there a time limit, are there certain restrictions placed upon you if you do, is checking in considered a disciplinary act? Does it look bad to officials?Have you found that you rescind statements regarding a lot of the negative aspects you face (if any) on a day-to-day basis being an inmate when communicating with family or friends on the outside simply because you know that it would be hard on them to hear because there would be little to nothing they could actually do to help a situation that arose?Do you have an electrical outlet in your cell? Do inmates ever make anything useful that is powered by electricity?I know that there are a boatload of questions there, and some may or may not warrant an extended answer. Take your time, and answer in parts if you need to. I just wanted to send these questions to you that I thought about since reading your reply, and putting myself in an inmates shoes (as much as possible in thought) during this weekend. After reading your blog, and taking on a few of my own personal legal tigers at the moment I truly believe that at some point in my life I will help those being released from prison.A blog seems like such a frivolous thing these days with social media but I thank you so much for all your writings, and insight into a world foreign to most of us on the outside' with the exception of whatever National Geographic or the Discovery Channel feel like makes good tv' which is usually some crazy inmate in super max talking about daily stabbings and bad food.Thanks again,-Matt
