Born in one millennium living in another. Here's my perspective of things.

    Reading Culture

    Happy New Year! We made it to 2018. What a time to be alive. Who are you reading? Last year I shoved a tone of must reads down your throat and I was impressed that a number of you were pretty interested. This week a friend asked me to help with a survey on whether the reading culture is there in Kenya. Some said yes it is, some said no, some said it’s dying and others, it’s about to rise to unbelievable levels. The demography of my survey? 21-26 years. Extensive enough? Not as I would like, but it will do for now. Yes people are reading, you for one…

    Irreducible minimums

    I am one of those people who don’t understand why people need space. I feel like it’s some kind of excuse to keep you at bay, or someone is just trying to get rid of you and doesn’t know how to put it. My findings? Sometimes it actually is true, people don’t want to be around you and use space as the excuse. Key word being… sometimes. Aside from this I learnt something this past week. Aside from football and how school is, it is pretty cool talking to your dads, they may look like they read newspapers and pay fees only but the amount of wisdom they possess is…

    "Love does not take you to the finish line"

    Earlier last week I was watching Over 25’s latest video (link below) and Jules mentioned today’s blog post title. When I was young and naive, (always wanted to say this), I thought i’d get married and feed my man grapes in bed all day or we’d have candle lit dinners every night swimming in money from God knows where. Today of course i’d say I’m a bit wiser because I’ve realized it way harder for a man/woman to love sort of how God loves us. Our kind of love is triggered by so many things, you stop calling, I love you less, you stop replying my messages I put an…

    Wife number 2.

    First of all, (let’s catch this wave) Thank you so much for all the views in the last two posts, for sharing, for all the active mind blowing conversations. I love you all. So today is chapos Sunday at my house, as it is in most Kenyan homes. I don’t know what it is about chapos on a Sunday but they just make it glorious. Now, chapos Sunday means catching up with mum, and mother-daughter catching up is on another level. The mother-daughter bond in my view is unlike normal friendships. So we are talking and church vibes come up. I come from a church that is a bit mainstream.…

    Baby mama fever!

    I love getting away. If I had the money I’m sure I’d go on vacations more than Vera Sidika. Heck, if I had the money i’d be the female version of Jackson Biko, where people approach me to travel and write for them, such a glorious life. Well until we get filthy rich and can go to Greece over the weekend or to London for fall, a weekend in Mombasa every other random time will do and wherever else our pockets take us. I have finally used the SGR (yeeeey) I feel like such a Kenyan now. Slay queens please don’t judge, we know you were the first group to…

    She's about to dive in!

    Two months ago I did a post, Secrets from my diary, that basically was what I felt were the right vibes to pick out on when a guy likes a girl. Now after this post that got quite some views guys asked me to do them a solid. The following will be a series what seems very obvious but I ask that you trust the process. 1. She replies fast. Before I even delve into this I believe human beings are obvious, sadly we are, we may want to think our behavior is unique and we are different, but there is nothing new under the sun. If a shawty likes…

    Influence

    We never really know it all do we? I feel like this post might be as bit controversial, I am not even sure I want to go down this road considering it goes to the core of my being. But why not play around with words see where this leads us. I think it’s all a hoax, it’s all pegged on something else.There seems to be no ingenuity in how we do things in life. Human beings are very obvious as I have learnt, and there really is nothing new under the sun. I am not trying to be stoic, neither implicit, I just realized it’s really not that complicated.…

    Scared to be lonely.

    This morning in the midst of trying to pretend to be asleep for about 2 hours, because laziness can get real, I had a very interesting conversation with my friends. And we all know what happens where girls are gathered. So the discussion today was whether you ¬†would date a person you are not ‘connected’ to for lack of a better word. In my understanding being connected to someone means being the same headspace. Being able to identify with the person you are with. Being very headstrong about the person you are with regardless. (hizi head zimekuwa nyingi…) So would you? Would you let someone who you have no connection…

    Situationships

    Wagwan my country people! Strathmore elections are done (I think) so we can move on with our lives now. The first ever feature as promised a few weeks ago is finally here! I’m so excited about this. So i’m at the hostel this week and my friend Jane apps me saying she needs to talk to me. So my paranoid self is there freaked as hell, not that i’d done anything, but there are those things people tell you and in your head you start backdating what could be the problem from 2014. Anyway, she says she wants in and she practically saved me because with these exams I had…

    Secrets from my diary.

    In last week’s post I was all Steve Harvey on the relationship vibe and maybe, just maybe, we may go down that road today. So this week I haven’t done much reading. I have a lot of books waiting for me, some from my loyal readers, and some I’ve come across but I just can’t read. Why? Exams are coming. If you are friends with a law student then you know exams are hectic. But that wasn’t going to stop me from posting because despite how tired I am (those who watched my story time on Instagram understand) I really want to be consistent with posting. I want to actually…
