I started watching the Korean Drama 'SKY Castle' sometime last week. It is about the cutthroat education experience that some students are exposed to. This concent is explored through the dynamics of five different families in an upper class neighbourhood and the seemingly ridiculous extents they go to to secure certain things for their children. … Continue reading All Work and No Play!
About me 😌. If WordPress is counting right, this should be my 100th post. It's a little unbelievable that I have shown up here about 100 times. It's true some of those have been reposts (if that's how WordPress counts) but I thought I could share a little about me. I have seen this trend … Continue reading 100th Blog Post – Random facts…
It's been a heavy week, in the best week, with writing on several topics finding light in the Afrobloggers Community. It has honestly been a great prompt and wonderful information has made its way in circulation. Continuing yesterday's thoughts on learning and reading disabilities, I thought I would draw attention to language. Lebogang's post lays … Continue reading Advocacy: Lost in translation

If fertility … Continue reading Advocacy: Because Pain is not a respector of persons… Or sexes

The excerpt you are … Continue reading Advocacy: What they wish you knew
Bringing this one out of the archives for today😅😅. This was my third post on the blog, a whole year and a half ago. But I think it holds some truth for the present. For a while in this season (the faith-beating season from about one post back) I have believed deeply that it is … Continue reading How to finish well
I have no idea what your day to day looks like. Or more specifically what a day like today, where every space you glance at is awash with the reminder that you are not there yet. But I applaud the strength - with which you face it all. Fielding unbelievably heartless questions year after year … Continue reading To the Mother still waiting to mother.
These were the ingredients needed to make the PowerPuff Girls. Does that take you back a little? To carefree childhood days before the world had to impress its ideas on us? Or to whatever time it was where powerpuff girls provided some more entertainment... Because we will be celebrating International Women's Day tomorrow, its certainly … Continue reading Sugar, spice and all other things nice…
🎶 Falalalala - lalala. Tis the season to be jolly! This year Christmas is looking different for quite a number of us, it certainly goes without saying. Sure, we've sang the carols, decorated the houses (for those who do that - my family is not one of those so our home looks just like it … Continue reading Deck the blog with cheer and stories!
I'll try to make this quick. 'Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.' - Proverbs 16:24 This thought came to me in the negative; how words slash - like reap you wide open and leave you bleeding on the battlefield that is life - and how we are … Continue reading The Healing Power of Words.
