What is Life?

What is life? Really and truly we’re just over-entitled primates, animals, mammals. Every animal’s goal is to survive and we are no different. Eating and sleeping are all we really need to be frank. I mean it worked fine for the Neanderthals (though their life expectancy was terrible), but we evolved and now there are…

School & Education

I’m not going to sit here and bash school (even though it’s shit), but there seems to be a misconception between school and education. We were always told “You need to go to school to get an education,” but all of that is far from the truth. I mean sure, we learned how to count,…

My Own Therapist

Since primary school, I’ve always been talking to myself. As crazy as that sounds I’ve also seen many people on twitter saying the same thing, so it makes me feel better about it lol. Even with that thought, I would still do it because it almost put me at ease. Seriously, I’ll be having a…

Things To Do Differently

I’ve had this title on my drafts for months now and to be honest there isn’t anything to say on it anymore. I’ve touched of this in many of my previous posts, and to keep it real with you, I’m going to be the same person anyway. We all evolve from what we already are,…

Control of Life

I can’t remember what triggered this thought but do you think we really have full control of our lives? I’m not talking about “The government doing this” or “Poverty causes this.” I’m talking about our own personal actions. Think about all the footballers that never made it or all the graduates that haven’t been able…

Soft Spot

Following up from my recent post (Sunday 9th December 2018 (17:52)) I thought I would make this a full feature post. I don’t know why it happens, but we all develop a soft spot for someone and for me, I only realise it when the person has left my life. There are about three people…

Memory Lane

I’ve made incredible strides in my life, and though I try to look forward and stay in the present my mind is filled with many memories and thoughts. Till this day memories still pop up undoing my current work and I still find myself spending chunks of my day thinking about the past. Memories are…

Youth

For a while, I was feeling like I’m wasting my youth (even though I feel I’m old). Being at uni going out every week, daily antics, just being extremely active in life. Now I’m back at home I felt like I was wasting the “good times” that I have left. I loved interacting and meeting…

African Parents & Comparison

I didn’t expect to be writing the second part so soon, but this one here is one of the most annoying ones out of all of them because COMPARISON IS NOT MOTIVATION! From as early as I can remember this has been the norm for me. “X Y Z is doing this” “Look at what…

African Parents & Reputation

I’ve been wanting to write about this for honestly God knows how long, but better late than never isn’t it. I was initially going to talk about this subject as a whole, but honestly, this post would have been way too long with too many emotional turns. No one wants to read a uni dissertation…
