Days since my release from 26 years in prison: 101
Time I woke: 4:00 am
Journal of activities:
I spent the early morning writing pricing proposals for the Straight-A Guide life skills program that I’m trying to bring to market in Modesto. After that, I went for a run around the park in Petaluma. I ran 13 miles, then made final preparations for the class that I was scheduled to teach at SFSU. My friend Malik Wade agreed to visit our class as a guest speaker. He shared his story about living as a fugitive and changing his life while advancing through 12 years in prison. I also participated in an interview for a student who wanted to write a paper about the California Realignment law. A productive day.
