I think memoirs are one of the most interesting new thing of the past thirty years maybe.

I always had an interest in memoir writing. Having my professor of memoir writing workshop and also advanced memoir writing  workshop like me and support me in an amazing way. I learned that she is actually Sicilian American and I thought of how kind and sweet she is as a person just having her like my short eighteen page memoir I wrote for advanced memoir was really cool. I had went to a few events Dr. Giunta held on campus and it felt really cool to wear makeup and go to a party and having one of the young women I remember say “oh my gosh Ayesha you look so good you have make up on I almost didn’t recognize you.” Little things like me having a small circle of people that also say I’m very nice too. It makes my Christmas holiday to have gotten a special journal from my secret santa and to just have a few new friends I can socialize with I feel so much less alone. I don’t want to run the risk of isolating myself and I’m living more in the now. I’ll be forty soon and my birthday is in January I’ll be 39 in another month.
