MIDDLE NAME - INSECURE. Hey there, Not there...Here. Nope, further down in the back. Further...ffffuuurrttthher. Yep, that's me in the corner with my head bent in seeming concentration while my thoughts highlight every point where I’ve gone wrong in the past five minutes. I’m not vocal enough, I’m not funny enough, I'm not friendly enough, … Continue reading These Scattered Thoughts.
Does it feel like the months are creeping up on you this year? Like time is playing hide and seek with you but you have no idea that you should be playing? No?! Guess it's just me then. But I like how October has rolled in for me. Its a little busier than I have … Continue reading Hello October!
I had the opportunity to attend a Women's Virtual meet yesterday. I'm not usually the kind of person who does that and going in I had my own speculations about the entire setup. The questions started off light and funny - they were playing 'Never have I ever'. And the stories that backed up their … Continue reading Speak Life

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

I mean you probably lived most of your life thinking watermelons are red or pinkish, only to find that … Continue reading Advocacy: The space to unlearn and relearn
There are many facets to the issue of infertility (yep, still here). Meanwhile the Afrobloggers community is getting bold and loud about the issues so dear to their hearts. I hope you have read some as we get into day 7. But I figured I would close it out with a male perspective. If fertility … Continue reading Advocacy: Because Pain is not a respector of persons… Or sexes
So...if you are all caught up with yesterday's post, you sort of already know where this is heading. I want to give perspective to what I'm trying to put across so thought I would share a blogpost from someone walking through it and give you a glimpse into their everyday reality. The excerpt you are … Continue reading Advocacy: What they wish you knew
I wasn't sure of how to write about the topics I felt strongly about this week. So I am glad I read Miss Nsatu's post to give me a little more direction on how to go about this. As an advocate, I don't have to have gone through the issues that light a fire and … Continue reading Advocacy: Where to begin.
