MISSION (sort of) ACCOMPLISHED

Posted by Curtis Moss on Wednesday, June 6, 2012, In : POST-EMPLOYMENT 

Not much left for me to do here anymore, I'm beginning to think... and not too sure where to go.
  
It's been 5 months now since I walked down the sidewalk at Giddings State School and out the gate  --  never to return.  I'd had enough.  I QUIT, and had no desire to set foot on campus again.  I DID however, still have a burning rage within me, fueled by the inexcusable  ways I'd been treated over the past 6 1/2 years there... the way The System had let down the youth and taxpayers... the rott...

MOTHER OF INVENTION

Posted by Curtis Moss on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : POST-EMPLOYMENT 

Now that I'm self-employed, making do with what we have around the house is even more important than ever.  When the back wheels of my lawmower gave out, I had to come up with some replacements... so took the front wheels off Grandma's old wheelchair and slapped them on the mower.  Even though the rear wheels are no longer adjustable for height, the lawmower is back in operation and all is well. 



R.I.P. GRANDMA -- WE MISS YA.  It wasn't until she had passed on that we were able to go fulltime...

ONE MONTH POST GSS

Posted by Tim Moss on Thursday, February 9, 2012, In : POST-EMPLOYMENT 

Time sure does fly.  Seems like a long, long time ago that I last stepped through the gatehouse.  I left when I did because it seemed like things had bottomed out and weren't likely to get any better... and I wasn't ready to take the chance that they MIGHT any time soon.  Guess I was just at the end of my rope and decided to let go.



It was a matter of deciding to gut it out and just put up with things as they were, or, to strike out and forge a new life.  It wasn't easy to give up on all the t...

MOVING FORWARD

BEFORE...




AND AFTER...

Tomorrow will mark ONE WEEK since I left the Giddings State School and embarked on what may be a frighteningly uncertain (unstable?) future as a self-employed middle aged dude.  Been feeling pretty good about my choice, so far, and have a video here that kind of sums up my feelings on the subject.





AND THE FUTURE...

Who knows?  I suppose/hope it will be better, but making it happen will take a lot of effort and energy -- it won't happen on it's own.  For anyone who is at the...

THIS IS IT

Posted by WebMaster on Friday, January 6, 2012, In : POST-EMPLOYMENT 




Guess this is where the rubber hits the road. I'm going to go into the HR office at GSS and tell them yes, I had written them an official letter saying I planned my last workday these to be the 10-6 shift on Saturday, 1-14-12 -- techinically that would mean my last actual day working there would be on the morning of Sunday, 1-15-12.

But I think that is not to be.


I have the option EITHER having to lie to some ODS about why I wasn't coming in (~~ shall I say "sick"? ~~) the next couple day...

BLOG BIO


WebMaster I worked at GSS to help incarcerated youth for over 6 years, and saw a lot of changes... but not many of them GOOD. My mission on this website is to help promote positive changes so the time and effort by current JCO's at the Giddings State School -- and taxpayer money -- are not wasted. We ALL need to do what we can, and this is MY way of doing my part... the kids, and the State of Texas deserve no less!
