Well, it's about time that I introduce myself properly, I think.
My real name is Oren Eini, I'm 22 years old. I lives in Israel, in a
sleep-only town near Tel-Aviv.
I work at prison. :-D Today is my 699th day in prison.
That kind of thing simply ruins a person's resume, don't you think?
Anyway, I've in one prison or another for most of my service. It's one of those things that you don't really think about. You know that they exist, but no one bother to think about them.
Never mind, that is just a temporary setback, I'm an IT person at heart. :-)
It's kind of interesting, in a way. I get to lead a different life
when I'm at prison and when I'm at home. My end-of-service date is a sixteen
months from now, and you can't imagine how much I look forward to it. I want to
learn, there is so much to learn —
and so much that I'm interested at — that it's actually a
I'll get to go to the university at the time where most people finish it. But it was worth it for the experience. It's kind of hard to explain, but the
saying does it best: "The army will make a man out of you."
Well, in my case, it was prison:-D.
But I get to meet a lot of interesting people and get exposed to a lot of
hate things that I would've never seen otherwise. I was in Prison 6 for a
while, which is a prison for soldiers (you know, desertion, discipline,
drugs, etc.), horribly long working hours, but the people are
Now I'm in a prison for terrorists, which has
normal better working
hours, but more ethical dilemmas. People never think about what is going
on after that terrorist or the other is arrested. Someone has to take care of
them, feeding, health-care, keeping them looked, etc. It's a difficult problem,
because on one hand you are keeping terrorists in prison, and on the other hand
you make sure that they are whole & hearty.
Considering that most of the people I get to work with are a few years younger than me, that problem multiplies, most of them sees the world in black & white, and it's hard to make sure that their attitude remains professional.
BTW, I just googled for info about my prison, most of the English links contain some pretty derogatory information, not to mention incorrect.
