One Year Ago

My sentencing was one year ago today.

That morning I was escorted out of the courtroom amid the sniffles and sobs of many family members, friends, AA contacts, and colleagues. It was the worst day of my life.

This anniversary has been weighing heavily on me in many ways. I’ve been dreaming about my time in jail constantly, I think I see corrections officers on the street or around campus while I’m working. My time away continues to affect me in weird and profound ways, and I plan on documenting my experiences here.

I had hoped to write about the events of June 9, 2014 here today, but my schedule is wonky. I had to work late, and I have to open the library in the morning (I hate opening shifts – I’m so not a morning person). And well, the Cavs are on (ha). But I plan on doing so in the next couple days.

Until then…

  1. I thought I remembered this day, but actually remember when I got to that “page” in your blog. I remember thinking what a sucky summer you were going to have and I vaguely remember you talking about your love of summer. So glad this one is here now. So glad it’s a memory.

  2. I started following your blog right around this time. I’m so glad that chapter is behind you now and that you can process it here. I look forward to continuing to follow your journey.

  3. I’ve been following you for a while too. I find your journey inspirational and I’m sorry you have had to suffer. It sounds like you are remembering/dreaming it and it is painful…keep going forward and it will get further and further in the past. Thank you for being bold and humble enough to share your journey here.
