The start of week three. One more week of red phase. Then it’s three of white, and the last three are blue. With each phase we get more free time and privileges. Today was another fun day. I chocked someone out. We learned hand to hand combat. All I can say is don’t expose your neck to my deadly sleeper hold. We learned for 3 hours and then incorporated everything into matches. My record is one on one.
After that, we went into a classroom and watched Ultimate Fighting Championship. I also squished a mosquito and a fly. It was a very violent day.
We didn’t get any mail last night. I’m pissed. Hopefully we’ll get some tonight and there’s something for me. Sigh. 49 more days.
They gave out mail tonight. Some people were getting like 5 letters at a time. I would’ve been happy with a freakin’ postcard, but even that could be too much to expect from you guys. My “friends.” Thank you. I guess you’re all too busy with your fast paced lives to give me an hour a week to write to me. Maybe I’ll stop sending ****. I will wait until the next mail call. We’ll see who my friends are.
