Now, I am a music teacher and a front desk attendant at my local community center. I exercise regularly doing martial arts, yoga, and weight training. I see my therapists once every two weeks. I go bowling every week. I read lots of self-help books. I play my saxophone every chance I get. I am a student in music. I have earned my Grade 9 level in the Royal Conservatory of Music in piano. I am in Grade 10 in the Royal Conservatory of Music in Saxophone. I am striving to attain the highest level in both piano and saxophone which is the ARCT level, which is Grade 11. I am going back to Langara College to attain my diploma in recreation leadership. I am wanting to pursue my music career by achieving my degree in music at Capilano College. I may want to get my Masters and then my doctorate.

This is not an isolated incident. In Connecticut a woman started a fire in a nursing home where she was staying in Hartford. The fire killed 16 people but the woman was found not competent because she had dementia, depression and multiple sclerosis. The woman was admitted to a mental hospital where she should have been in the first place.

A – Well, it can be difficult. When I first started writing I didn’t have a schedule and found it difficult to do everything, but now I have a schedule that works for me; one for writing, one for my part time job, and one for family time. Some people hate schedules, but it really helps me plan my days in an effort to give everyone – and everything – equal attention.
