Birthday Reflections

Hi Friends, I apologize about my unannounced and unexpected hiatus. I’m not even gonna attempt to explain the reasons for my long break, all that matters is that I’m back. These pictures were taken in March, in The States. I’ve been meaning to make a post but oh well. Today is my 28th birthday. I’m…

When The Going Gets Tough

Day#107 I’ve been in South Africa for 4 days now, which for some reason seems like an eternity ago. Sadly, I haven’t written a post in almost two weeks. I made a pact that I was going to write at least one entry a day, and here I am two weeks later not having written…

Zuma Must Go

Day#95  I received a text message from my grandma in South Africa, asking me if I was aware of the Zuma Must Go march this Friday, to which I said no. I asked some of my friends in South Africa and one of my girlfriends said she will be part of the march because she’s…

Destructive & Cruel

Day# 94 Have you heard or read about the chemical attack in Syria? I seriously don’t have words for this destructive and cruel act. I glanced at the article for a few minutes without reading it in its entirety, there’s only so much cruelty I can fathom. Nothing on God’s good earth gets to me…

Hallelujah Anyway

Day# 93 Today is one of those days when every thing seems to fall apart. I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately, being that I’m currently unemployed and am not in school. My attempts to change my current status have proven difficult with the new administration, and immigration in general. I’ve seriously been rejected…

The Season of Waiting

Day# 92 Today is one of those rare days when I feel EXTREMELY grateful for being single. That’s not to say I’m not enjoying being single, over time, I’ve grown to love and appreciate this season of waiting. In my previous post I talked about the Dating and Courting series at my church, which I’m…

Mental Illness

Day# 91 I have got to be one of the luckiest people in the world to be surrounded by such incredible people. I had a Skype date with one of my girlfriends from South Africa last night, and she and I had a great time catching up on life and all its glory. This particular…

Second Chances

Day#90 I’m meeting a girlfriend of mine for dinner tonight. She and I had a falling out a few years ago, and we decided to go our separate ways. She came to my house a few Fridays ago, for the first time in years, and the reunion was as though nothing had ever happened. We…

Numbing Rejection

Day#89 I’m getting a hang of this writing a post a day quest I’m on. There’s an exciting thrill I find in seeing the number of posts go up daily, and unbeknownst to me, this newly found hobby of mine has turned into an outlet as well. I’m not one to keep a diary, so…

Gratitude

Day #88 Today has been a dreadfully difficult but beautiful day. I woke up and did a few chores at home, packed my backpack and off I went to my second home, Starbucks. I worked on a few things while there, including yesterday’s post. Took a 0.4 mile walk to Whole Foods where I bought…

I Am Not My Hair

Day #87 I have a traffic of job and school interviews this week. I had two today, one tomorrow and another one on Thursday. I decided to do crochet braids last minute, because the state that my hair was in, there was no way I could pull it back or gel it to get a…

What Does Professionalism Look Like?

Day #86: Hello From Starbucks I’m currently shopping around for a graduate school, preferably one that offers online programs, because I want to leave the US and I also want to take advantage of the flexibility of online programs by working at the same time. I just got off the phone with a representative from…
