I strongly believe that for good or for ill life takes successes and failures to make the person.

I know my life was not ideal. I went through difficult days in the past but I believe it took my successes as well as my failures to make me the person I am today. I had dreams I wasn’t able to realize. I had good experiences that were good in my 30s and I started to like myself more. I got critiques from people around me since I was a child. I think of my biological parents and my grandmother’s sisters who have passed on that told me they were so proud of me when I graduated from NJCU. I didn’t have good enough grades for graduate school but I was able to finish school and get my Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing. I had dreams of becoming a writer. It’s hard to get into MFA programs but I applied to six MFA programs. I didn’t get in. Most of my life I wrote poetry and also kept journals. I even have a memoir that is over 225 pages. It’s something I am very proud of.  The experience of being nominated and nominating other people for blogger awards made me feel more a part of the blogging community and less isolated and alone. I try to socialize more in social settings and I have NAMI the organization I became a part of back in my mid-late 20s. I’m working on my self. I read a lot too. I don’t watch TV. I am online most of the time. I couldn’t tell you why but TV is something I never really liked but I think TV actors are cool.
