I’ve had a bit of an epiphany. I’ve wasted so much time over the past 10 years or so battling with these people. That’s not to say that the issues weren’t worth fighting, only that it has got me nowhere.
For example, one might think correcting negative file inaccuracies would assist in your progression; clearly not. So, I ask myself: “Is there any point in engaging in a process whose agenda is to keep me as a Category A prisoner?” Would my time not be better spent learning and improving skills, acquiring knowledge and creating art (composing songs and music, writing books, plays, screenplays, etc?)
What could I have achieved and created since my 2007 retrial? I could have written another 3 rock operas. I could have become a virtuoso on guitar. I could have finished the degree I started (120 points done). The list goes on and on.
When I first came in I did actually write a list of things I wanted and could achieve over 30 years (as my sentence was at that point). I have struck quite a number off but not nearly enough. Maybe it’s time to have a rethink.
Be happy, be safe.
