The past overwhelms me sometimes. I think of my elderly relatives and family members. I think of my mother. I think of loved ones I lost over the years. It’s hard sometimes. It overwhelms me sometimes. I plan to visit family in Brooklyn soon. I love my family members. I like knowing they all love me even if they can’t support me. I work. I plan to call a few family members this weekend and just catch up. I friended a lot of my family members on Facebook. My cousin Desiree posted a pretty childhood photo of my mother. I feel happier. I think sometimes when I remind myself that I’m okay I need to say my prayers too.
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!
