I may not be in a relationship but I am enjoying my life being single. I’m mingling even though I’m single. I have my part time job at Mercer as a Mentor for the DREAM program. I’m back in college working on my Early Childhood Education 38 credit co-major. I am writing a memoir. I am taking a course at The Institute of Children’s Lit. There are ten assignments for the Children’s Lit course I’m taking at The Institute and so far I’m on Assignment Three. Assignment Three is a 500-word exercise. We don’t have to make up a story like we did for the first two assignments. My memoir is 60 pages long so far but I have a bit of typing to do to add another ten to twenty or more pages to my memoir. I enjoy being a woman but you know what, I feel like my skin color is beautiful just the way it is. I go from milk chocolate to dark chocolate in the summer. Eye love and self love (both)! I feel so good on the inside about who I am now that I’m in my 30s! I wish I knew in my 20s what I know in my 30s. There is nothing with God on my side that I cannot do or try to overcome: like quitting smoking and like my diagnosis of SZ! God is with me. I smile in my bedroom mirror with lipstick on because I know God sees me.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 36-credit Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
