When I wake up in the morning I say “thank you God.” Before I go to bed at night I say “thank you God”. I sometimes have difficulty sleeping but most nights I’m able to get sleep. The more I sleep the more I heal. I had such trouble sleeping in my teens and 20s that now that I’m in my 30s I know I need to make sure I get a good night’s sleep on most nights of the week. Sleep is essential for my mental health. I have to get to bed by 11 pm and get seven or eight hours of sleep. I can’t function without my sleep I’ll snap. Sleep is my biggest trigger.
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 41-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!
