Need I Say More?

I stumbled upon a sheet of paper in my sister’s room today. I was looking for a document I believed I had left on her reading table and so I kept opening every sheet of paper on the table. She was going to be at choir rehearsals for the whole night so I could not have waited for her to get back. This paper had been detached from one of

Stabbed

It’s funny how we never know how difficult or easy it is to do a thing until we actually try. Like how I discovered today that making  small talk in the hospital can be one of the most nerve-wrecking things ever.  I cut classes today and decided to just stay indoors. I figured the best way to deal with pressure is to not try to swim to the place where

Marketing Walks 

I discovered it when I was 16 years old. It was a Saturday evening and night prep in school was short because the next day was Sunday and we needed to be in church early. After night prep, Linda, my girlfriend came to my class and handed me a note. She liked to write a lot of these kind of love notes so I was excited when I received it.

On Vanity There is a thin line between loving yourself and loving self. Loving yourself is an urgent requirement in this complex-shaping world. And loving self is a vain mandatoriness to becoming a blind non-recipient of important blessings. On Vaseline My grandmother is wonderful; a woman of few but great words; a lion who protects her cubs fiercely; a cook of no comparison; a legend of traditional African politics and

On Umbrella  If you will ever look past my awkwardness; at the way I’d rather fistbump the one I’m in love with; at the way I wonder why people call people without a tangible reason (like what does it mean to ‘just be calling’ someone??? So frightening…) Well, if you ever look past those and ask me to give you solid relationship advice, I’d say ‘Look for someone who would

On Rats ‘My worst experience with rats has to be when I woke up and found that they had eaten underneath my feet. I sat on my bed for about 30 minutes trying to decipher the spiritual and health implications of what had happened.’ ‘Mine has to be when I opened my bag in a meeting and a baby rat jumped out. I just had to square my face and

On Money One question I’ll always keep asking even if every economist on earth explains to me that ‘money only represents wealth and does not create it‘ or explains the concept of inflation and hyperinflation is; WHY CANT WE JUST PRINT MONEY AND PAY OUR BLOODY DEBTS?!  On Mom Never murmur at your mum  For what shall it profit you? If with your mouth you say things And with your

Please, Shift

Veronica always surprises me. Never failing. Her bio on every social media platform reads, ‘I’m the Muhammed Ali of food paradigm shift. You can’t take my place, I don’t run shifts. If you don’t understand me, please shift’ (Yes, I know.) I’m just going to dedicate this post to a number of things she has advocated for in her lifetime: Anti-Ice Cream Dates: According to her, couples who lick ice

GAME OVER

I once played a long and tiring game with a certain somebody It was called ‘Connecting the Dots’   User 1: My Heart Preparedness Level: Novice Special Skills: Fantasizing and Special Blindness   User 2: The Certain Somebody Preparedness Level: Oblivion a.k.a ‘What dots?’ Special Skills: Being a baby boy   So here was how it went: I’d sit square looking at him (we were dating then) and try to connect
