A Day in Prison by Nicole Bradley

This is how my life is going on this day of March 3, 2018

So, half the day has gone by. I slept in late today. I slept in until almost noon. I didn’t do much today but play on my tablet and hand wash some clothes. We don’t have a washing machine in this unit because someone broke the washing machine several months ago. I’m getting real tired of hand washing my clothes. So, right now I’m in my room away from everyone. I stay in here most the time because the unit is chaotic and I don’t want to be around all that chaos. I always hear people yelling in the halls or others would be arguing. I’d rather be in my cell coloring to pass the time away. I like to do creative stuff. I make beaded bracelets on a bead loom. I have seed beads and can put someone’s name on a bracelet. I make cards and I make doodle book markers. They look real nice. This relaxes me and passes the time away. An officer is yelling at everyone to close their doors and to stay out of the hallways. I’m tired of how noisy it always is. Anyhow, I’m going to go color. My mom’s birthday is coming up soon and I want to make her a pretty birthday card.

My nose is red cause I went out back to get some seeds out of a locker. I have a friend I want to send some Red Velvet Sunflower seeds to. I’m into gardening, and so is she. So, I wanted to share. I was doing gardening for two years, but I don’t have time for it now. I have classes I need to take for board and that takes precedence.

I’m going to send blogs regularly, but just so you know, JPay doesn’t always send emails in chronological order. I don’t know why. Anyhow, right now I’m waiting for them to call dinner. I’m so hungry. I have no food to eat. I was trying to trade some cards for food but everyone here is broke. And it seems that most the females here prefer to spend their money on drugs. I don’t do drugs. I don’t smoke, and I don’t even drink coffee. I do love soda and tea though.

I’m into astrology as well. I study astrology. I like to practice reading other peoples’ horoscopes just to help give me some more experience. I’m into astronomy. I have a subscription to Astronomy magazine and I am just fascinated with reading about the stars and planets. I’m going to go wait around for them to announce dinner….

I’m a bit irritated right now. I haven’t used the phone in weeks cause I’ve been sick. Since I’m feeling better today I went to dinner, and when I came back I tried calling my friend, Lee, on the phone. Someone tells me it’s their phone time so I hang up. As I was hanging up the girl changes her mind and says I can have the phone call. But, I already hung up. I’m so tired of these phone systems. We can only sign up for 15 minutes at a time and it’s not even enough time to have a conversation. I miss my family so very much. I just want to talk to them every day but I can’t. My dad doesn’t have collect. If it wasn’t for these JPay emails, I wouldn’t be able to message him, or receive videos. At least with the JPay videos I can see him and hear his voice. It’s only 30 second recorded videos, but they mean the world to me. I miss my family. I want to go home so badly. I feel like I’m living a nightmare I just want to wake up from. I hate it here so very much…

I’m showered and clean. I got some cold water from the water fountain and I intend on staying in my cell for the rest of the night. I might color, or just watch TV. There’s not much else to do.

So, before I finish this blog entry I would like to send good energy towards all my friends and family. I wish everyone peace, and good fortune, good health, love in their lives, and compassion. I hope my uncle Jesse has a good birthday tomorrow, and that my niece and nephew have fun at Disney Land tomorrow and that they remain safe. I wish for my dad to know how much he’s loved by me. I know they’re not reading this but I just hope they feel these good intentions from me. I wish everyone in the world to feel peace. I wish anyone reading this to feel peace. Peace unto you and peace unto those you love.

Good night.

  1. Hi Nicole: before I write to you late tomorrow night and early Sunday morning here, I just want to say that I read your recent writing and the way you expressed your ideas and emotions nearly brought me to tears by the end!
    You’ve been through so much, but are still able to show the best and true side of yourself and that isn’t easy, but shows that you have real personality; so much compassion and will one day be able to live your dreams out in real life.
    I wish I could be as good as you are and so do so many others. The day will come when your past will be forgotten and then life will give so much back to you.
