Emotions are a by-product of what is going on in your head and your life (and in my case…what I eat/drink). In this context, I am broadly dividing this into happy and sad. I am not dealing with all other emotions in between. No, I did not get that definition from Urban dictionary or Wikipedia. It is just something I came up with. After all, … Continue reading Why so emotional?
It took me a while to understand the concept of feminism because the way it was initially portrayed to me, I reckoned what people labelled as feminism was fundamental human rights. I still believe that its fundamental human rights but also enlightening everyone of the fact that segregating anyone on the basis of gender is an exercise in ignorance and borderline stupidity. The feminism movement … Continue reading La movement
For whatever reason, many people think I am a happy, clappy, cheery person. Well, I don’t blame them. My social media feed deceives people. I have my periods of sadness and insecurities though. On a particular period, I was so sad and really needed to talk to someone. I called my friend in Boston with no regard to the time difference and started moaning about … Continue reading Happy or not, here I come!
Sometimes, I do not understand how I get myself into situations like these. I decided to make myself spicy beef sauce from scratch. This involves finely dicing the tatashe (scotch bonnets) and onions, making tomato paste and cooking the beef. I made the delicious sauce and ate it with cous cous, sweet corn and peas. I went straight to food heaven after that sumptuous meal. … Continue reading I did not think this through
I don’t eat doughnuts. Or Donuts, as the Americans spell them. My reasons are quite logical. You see, one of my aims in life is to have a consistently healthy body and my relationship with doughnuts is highly toxic. A typical doughnut with chocolate filling contains 452 calories. I am yet to find a human with so much will power as to resist eating more than a … Continue reading Junk Affair
I got on the train 10 minutes before departure time. I didn’t mind being early as I was reading an interesting article. Even if I’m engrossed in an amazing book or article, I’m still conscious of my environment. It’s one of my superpowers. After all, years of watching NCIS/CSI/Criminal minds have taught me that you need to be able to describe people in full details … Continue reading False Alarm…oops
The angel assigned to me must very humorous because the kind of things that happen to me are purely out of this world. Before I continue this story, I must confess that I talk to myself and not in whispers like many people do. It keeps me sane. Anyway, I decided a trip to the steam room was required to soothe my aching muscles and … Continue reading Note to self
I have a very haphazard sleep pattern. Although I aim for 56 hours a week…I never quite meet my target. I try to play catch up with sleep during the weekend. I usually look forward to the bank holiday weekend so I can catch up on my sleep carry over. I cannot tell you the number of podcasts, books and magazines I have listened to/ read about … Continue reading Sleepathon
Weekends are great for catching up with friends and what not. I’m quite happy staying indoors to enjoy my solitude but my friends will have none of that. We decided to go to Ed’s easy diner to indulge in calorific, heart clogging goodness (aka burgers, fries and milkshakes). Afterwards we went shopping, you know…to work off all those calories. At this point, I had been … Continue reading Tooth Hazard
Children are more likely to learn new things and understand new concepts faster than most adults. It has nothing to do with the fact that they are smarter. It is mainly because their level of cynicism is much lower than adults’. Some degree of open mindedness is required to accept new theories and changes. If your first reaction is to defend your knowledge of a … Continue reading Malleable
There’s nothing like a good night’s rest. You know, the type of sleep that makes you feel so well rested that you wake up feeling like you can move mountains and elephants. That’s the way I feel this morning. The past couple of weeks, I’ve been heavily sleep deprived. The coffee chugging lifestyle doesn’t help (and no, do not recommend that I should quit coffee). … Continue reading Sleepy tales
Everyone knows that you do not walk down a dark alley by 11pm. It’s courting danger for no reason at all. That’s the stuff crime shows are made of. On the other hand, what if that is your easiest route home? Are you going to let something as mundane as common sense prevent you from getting home the quickest possible way? Sometimes I find myself … Continue reading Fearless/ Senseless?
