I heard someone say “I don’t like Ayesha”.

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.
