Sometimes people live in the future. Others live in the past. I on the other hand have been staying more present trying to enjoy the life I have and not planning too much. Every year I make new year’s resolutions but this year is slowly coming to an end. Tomorrow is Christmas eve. I am looking forward to Christmas and I’m going to a New Year eve party at NAMI. I have had quality of life over the years because I had NAMI a place I could go. I know mental illness is hard and there is a lot of stigma. I was happy to say I had a poem on this website on schizophrenia poetry website. I have also published quite a few of my poems in the Messenger NAMI Mercer NJ’s newsletter. This was something that I felt happy about for the years Miss Maddy included my poetry in the newsletter. I want to wish all of the bloggers in this blogging community a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
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!
