Once you give it away, it’s not yours
Once you give it away, it’s not yours

Two Christmases ago I wanted to get my Samsung phone fixed so that I could give my little sister the Huawei since she barely had a phone. I failed to get the Samsung fixed and my boyfriend gifted me a Nokia 6 instead. I gave my sister the Huawei as planned. Fast forward to this year, I got a new…

Your kids aren’t a reboot of your life
Your kids aren’t a reboot of your life

I hear people a lot talking about, “I wanna give my kids a life I never had growing up.” This has been a problematic ideology for me because imagine I wanna buy my child a walkman because I didn’t have one growing up. Different generations require different gadgets and this is what the blog post is about today. You cannot…

Don’t Assume Yourself into a Relationship
Don’t Assume Yourself into a Relationship

You can’t ever ask a man, “What are we?” It’s too much pressure they say. Just go with the flow they suggest. Just have fun and what’s yours will unveil itself. Pish posh me thinks. "Erotomania" is a type of delusion where the affected person incorrectly believes another person is in love with them. — UberFacts (@UberFacts) December 3, 2018…

There are Things You Can’t Love Out of Him
There are Things You Can’t Love Out of Him

Do you have that one hang-up that no matter how hard you work on it or how deep you introspect it just seems like you can’t ever heal or recover from it? Well, guess what, men are humans and they too have such hang-ups and no matter how hard you love him, those skeletons will creep up on them and…

Put this down for your life to pick up
Put this down for your life to pick up

When you’ve worked really hard and things still don’t work out it’s heartbreaking and devastating. You followed the rules, put in the work and the results don’t reflect that and you want to know why? From personal experience, I can take a guess. Read on and take it if it’s for you. I’ve always been a rub-it-in-your-face kind of person.…

There’s No Real Formula to Getting Married
There’s No Real Formula to Getting Married

Unless you have access to Love Potion #9 there is no way you can make someone marry you…for true love anyway. Kikky BadAss got married and her bride price was a major hot topic online. Among the jesters and trolls were women who aren’t married yet and some who aren’t even dating. "I was not married for US 500" Kikky…

It’s Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies
It’s Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies

I reached a new level of low this last quarter. I came back from the experience of a lifetime and malfunctioned. Things got so bad, I started wondering if I was cursed with bad luck. I was up late on Google pulling Tarot cards online to see what the actual heck was going on with me. Of course, the cards…

Here’s What I Don’t Get…
Here’s What I Don’t Get…

Here’s what I don’t get, you apply for your child to be admitted into a school knowing full well that the school has been Catholic for the past 120 years. You applied to it anyway and now that you are enrolled, you suddenly have a problem and kick a fuss about that school IMPOSING it’s religious beliefs on your child.…

God Already Created Men, Why Should You?
God Already Created Men, Why Should You?

Nobody’s perfect, we know this. It’s a tired alibi for people that don’t want to change or want to make excuses for their shortcomings. Based on this aged adage, women are driven to Alladdin it and find that diamond in the rough. So you find a pauper and love him into a prince only for him to leave you in…

Sometimes the Dead Beat Dad Comes Back
Sometimes the Dead Beat Dad Comes Back

So Boity popped off on the #UtatakhoRemix and I was reeling with emotion. I knew I had to write a whole blog post about absent fathers and deadbeat dads. When @Boity said "my Dad was alive but his presence wasn't so my mom was everything that he wasn't.. I could never be the one to ever judge him cause I…

Are the People Around You Ruining Your Life?
Are the People Around You Ruining Your Life?

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been down with a bug. Yesterday it got so bad that I finally went to the clinic with Mr. W. I had severe headaches, joint pains, nausea, diarrhoea, fever, shortness of breath and all sorts of discomfort. During that time, people continues to text me needing something or another and my unread messages…

What It’s Like Living in a Voodoo Home
What It’s Like Living in a Voodoo Home

It’s almost like waking up to find a 5 litre bottle of water and not knowing what it’s for. With the water shedding crisis you wonder is it for drinking? Is it sea water? Is it prayer water that you received from the mountain and you have to bath with it for three sunsets while facing the East and chanting…
