When life kept throwing curve balls in my direction, the only way I survived was through writing. I wrote and wrote and finally wrote myself back into college. I read and I read, I wrote and I wrote, and no one was there to tell me to stop, and if they did, well, the old Kelly came out and said things we don’t want to talk about.
I became a tutor for those in remedial English at Missouri Western, when I graduated, I taught the course. I was finally validated.
