Confusing shades of life

I have a mountain of work on my laptop; it’s so much I feel sorry for myself at this moment. Six months ago I was as idle as a jar of jam. It was right about the time I questioned my purpose in […]

A letter to Kenya

Dear Kenya,

I haven’t written to you before. I write to those I love deeply or hate.Yeah, I deeply dislike some people, I am not Jesus. I struggle with my emotions for you Kenya. To me you were a place I found myself, you were home because […]

My big broken heart

Like the lazy writer I am, I spend some of my days staring into the abyss that is the internet, trying to read everything on it before an unknown force deletes it.  I want to tell rosy stories most times but it is clearly not what […]

Friendships and Uncertainties

Lost and Confused Signpost

I should be recapping 2016 but I will not. It’s hard not to overshare in this digital era so you just hold everything in. Most of my biggest moments in the past year are things I would want to keep to myself. That […]

I have been involved in research on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) a few times. Each time gets me amused. Each time I leave with a hangover. Each time leaves me feeling incomplete. As soon as my visit is done, my client wants their data back. But […]

To the patient parents.

Perfect couple

Dear Mum and Dad,

I am at the point in my life where everyone is asking me whom I am seeing. Whom am I going out with? Whom am I going to bring home to you folks? Who has laid claim on me? Very many cliché […]

Fixated

SHE'S FIXATED

With every waking moment, you are on my mind. The tiny dollop of toothpaste I squeeze out has a way of reminding me of you, because your toothpaste tastes terrible. When I am spreading lotion on my skin I remember how fruity your lotion smelt. […]
