  Future Plans.
I have not made any definite plans about what I will do upon my release. This is not to say I have no idea what I will do. Since I will initially be under very strict guidelines, my goal is to earn the trust of those persons I will be dealing with on a regular basis. The first person would be the parole officer I am reporting to. Then I will work to establish contacts with those people in the community that can provide me with support and guidance in dealing with other members of the community I am located in.

Between the current state of the economy and my criminal record I realize it will be difficult to obtain employment. However, I am not afraid to work. I am willing to work at a reduced wage and prove my worth on the job. While I understand that my access to computers will be governed by my parole conditions, I can still use my expertise to seek employment in areas where my skills for system design and organization could be of use without needing direct access to a computer.

In addition I have years of experience working on minor home repairs, including plumbing, electrical and carpentry. One possible employment opportunity, might be working using my skills to help senior citizens and other disabled persons with repairs and maintenance around their homes. I would like to offer my services at a reduced rate, and/or work through community organizations that provide services to the elderly and homebound.

I would also take the opportunity to work on my writing skills and possibly look toward publishing some of my writings. I have over 3,000 pages of writings, in the form of letters and essays, that I have written over the last thirteen years and this could be used to form the base of either a non-fiction memoir or a fictional story.

My main focus will be to take each day as it comes. My prison experience has taught me patience above all other things. My primary responsibility upon my release will be to my parole officer and the terms and conditions set down by the Division of Parole. Once I earn the trust of my parole officer, I will then build on that and establish other relationships with those members in the community that can further my successful re-entry into society so that I can be a productive and law-abiding citizen.
