Menstruation Tales 1.

Tags: , |

             Tampons A few weeks ago at work we had no internet - no it wasn't slow we hadn't paid - so my colleague told us a story of how her period just showed up and she needed to buy pads. She went into a supermarket picked a [...]


Sexism at work?

Tags: , |

  Image Credits: Shutterstock Thursday night I slept very disturbed. I have been working on a project that I enjoyed so much, I would even work outside my work hours – I am always working so I am not certain what those are- because of how much I enjoyed it. That night in relation [...]


A letter to Kenya

Tags: , , |

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 I couldn’t go elsewhere. I was supposed to [...]


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 the world wants me to do. 2017 has been [...]


Friendships and Uncertainties

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 said, I have not written for this blog in what feels like [...]

Birth Control

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 I always want to go back. I want to [...]


To the patient parents.

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 questions for a woman my age trying to ask [...]
