MY DATE MY CHOICE

It is one of the tried and tested ways of losing friends for me. It begins with genuine friendships, then you get closer by the day, you move from talking monthly to weekly to daily, and there I am thinking that I have added another feather in my cap in terms of fostering good relationships….

INSECURITY IN DISGUISE

If you have an opportunity to run from them, do not put a stop to your gallop. If you have a chance to avoid them, do so as you would a plague. If you can neither run nor avoid them, stay with me. I will teach you how to live with them. Psychology describes their…

THE PIMPLE

My sweet sleep was rudely interrupted by circumstances that leave a bad taste in the mouth. Circumstances that are unprintable and can only by spoken about in hushed tones. This was on a Sunday night; one day that one should have a very good night sleep lest you begin your week on the wrong footing….

TEE VERSUS VEE

I am that kind of person who reads anything readable, from posters of aspirants in an upcoming election, to the ones about a witchdoctor from Kitui who is providing solutions to all your problems including lost items to the piece of newspaper that is used to wrap meat. This one particular time I was just…

FRIDAY GONE SOUR

It all started on memes where comrades would hilariously make fun of the tough times they were(are) going through. All thanks to the delayed disbursement of the Higher Education and Loans Board(HELB). One that cracked me up was of this green dolly, that appears to be deep in thought then is painted to be asking…

@-Twenty!

LIFE MOVES ON

One Friday, we went to class never to come back. Excitedly and obediently so we packed our particulars and left for our homes as directed by the government. We faithfully abandoned the semester that was in its homestretch. It was a sigh of  relief for some of us who had assignments pending, CATs to be…

ROLE OF THE YOUTH IN THE SOCIETY

The youth have been rightfully christened the backbone of the society; they are looked upon by the younger generation for guidance and they are depended on by the older generation for support. The youth of a country is a mirror that reflects the future of that particular nation and hence have a great role to…

COMMITMENT

Without commitment you cannot have depth in anything whether it’s a relationship a business or a hobby. Neil Strauss. “hakunipa hayo nikuhitaji, kwa niliyo nayo upate maji, na mwisho wa hayo tuvikwe taji,tuingie nayo wa mbingu mji” (Nyota ya mashariki by Ben Mukasa) Don’t let your life be barren. Be useful. Leave a mark ….

LEARN THE LESSON AND FORGET THE DETAILS

Sugar coating their words  is not their modus operandi. Pacifying is a verb that does not exist in their dictionaries. They speak their mind and state things in black and white. A good chunk of them are acid-tongued and they tend to spew unprintable words without caring the emotional implications they cause on the subject….
