I thought that doesn’t have to bother me. I’m staying focused. I am trying to get through my semester in college. I have a paper due on December 15. I have an assignment due on Wednesday. Time management is important in college. I have a week or so to go before my essay is due. It is supposed to be 1,500 words and the Works Cited needs to be APA style, not MLA style. I have come such a long way. If I don’t hear voices verbally attacking me I don’t think about my inner demons.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 48-credit BA 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!
