Through out most of last week, I kept thinking about friends...and how we go our separate ways even though that's not how we ever saw things playing out. Sort of allowing people to grow and accepting that sometimes that growth will not include you. While I was thinking of my own role in friendship breakups, … Continue reading On Friendship Breakups
Because September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month... ...this is a reminder to be kind! You have no idea what some people are walking through but you can be the reason they hope anew.

Bringing this back from a series I did in the Winter ABC challenge - in case you missed it. One of the things I totally appreciate about the digital revolution is how many writing platforms there are. It's great exposure and most of them are mostly free. So I figured I could share some of … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Writing on a budget

An idea I first saw from Justynlove. So here goes; I was... Attending. Virtual meetings. My best kind … Continue reading Out with the old, in with the new!

Should hand it to Afrobloggers - these topics have been properly varied. Shoved me a little out my comfort zone and got me learning enough things. So this is obviously Culture and Fashion Week and at first I thought I was boxed in by one perspective but the more I sat with it, the more … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: the trendsetter and the sheep

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.
