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!
Living in a world of instant gratification has probably worn out our muscle of patience. We've conveniently forgotten that good things take time and have the idea that if something doesn't pick we should abandon it. Half baked plans and half hearted attempts. I think this is what keeps us rotating around then idea of … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Let it marinate.
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.

I want to know if I'm advancing, improving, upgrading, whatever word you want to use … Continue reading ‘It will be fun’ They said.
I first saw this idea on Ericotrips. I don't know if it is a trend and goes way back but I liked his review, very coherent and informative so I decided to put my own spin on it. I decided, around June, that the only way I was going to make sense of this year, … Continue reading The Blogging year – 2020 in review.
I read a comment somewhere that said sometimes the end of a friendship hurts more than the end of a romance. I don't know much about the latter but I can attest to the former. For that matter I just love a good friendship story, with all the drama and the ups and downs but … Continue reading Putting in the time
World Suicide Prevention Day was observed on September 10th. And I'm coming to the table three days later. It's encouraging to see the ongoing conversations on this. This is a sensitive topic and getting the right words out calls for serious thought. There was a suicide in school during my high school years. There is … Continue reading Down but not Out.
I took a long dip into the rabbit hole that is violence and torture. That is, I read about it. The story that led me down this deep dark path is simple. I read of someone's WhatsApp status update that they had finally read up on one of the world's worst cases. Naturally I was … Continue reading Outside my little bubble.
