Finished walking at 8:30 AM. Stretch and split stretched. Had the unit team meeting with Camp Manager Mr Echeveste. He was very happy with my work and performance. My pattern score was very low and I will start earning 15 days per month FTC. My present projected release to Half way house is May 2025 or sooner. The 12 months home confinement for elder inmates – 2nd chance act was rescinded by President Biden. It was only enacted during the Covid 19. Showered at 10:00 AM. Lunch was served at 10:15 AM. Luncheon menu: Baked chicken, sweet potatoes, mixed vegetables, punch and an apple. Talked to Doris at 10:35 AM: Doris and Patches are well. Patches bought two pair of Hoka shoes. She will be busy working on her inventory for Saturday show. They will visit me on Sunday 12/3/2023. She changed the oil in the SUV. She talked to Joseph about the 2 point sentence reduction and will send some of the information to me today or tomorrow. Joseph also recommended that community attorney from Prison Professor. I will work with Thomas Johnson,and if there is no response from him, I will work with the community attorney. I was featured in Michael Santos Master class video, and they are saying that I am learning, teaching and working hard while in prison to improve myself. I told her about my unit Team Meeting and my low pattern scores, thus I will be earning 15 days FTC per month after this meeting. My projected release date was May 2025, six months earlier than previous projection. It could be earlier based on my future FTC. But my earlier projection was based on the 2nd Chance or Cares Act that was rescinded by President Biden because of conclusion of Covid 19. GED tutoring 12:00 – 2:30 PM. The tutoring went well, worked with some students to prepare them for the GED examination on 12/8/2023. Processed two new inmates today. Census count at 3:30 PM. Dinner was served after the count.
