i graduated on my birthday

Image
This post is long overdue but here goes; On the 13th  of  December 2016, I obtained my first degree! I am glad to say I am now a qualified pharmacist and it feels amazing! The best thing about the day was not only the fact that it was my birthday but the fact that my parents were beaming with pride, I cannot count the number of times i wished for that day and through the almighty's grace, the universe made way for the class of 2016 to be great at the great hall.



\ The truth about graduations is that even if it is your day, It is not really your day. it's a day for others to celebrate you and I couldn't help but feel like i needed to cater to my parents and my cranky little brother,lol,  I like to think that wedding days feel the same for brides and grooms; feeling the need to make sure that your guests are more comfortable than you are.





you see these two people above? angels on earth. the word amazing does not express their presence in my life and career. My venting and cryin…

your clothing account could be a meal ticket

can I vent? So my mother just called me tonight.
we usually have very long phone calls to catch up on what had happened during the week, the weather, school and from her side, how my siblings and dad are doing. Mom and i's phone calls always have me laughing out loud (literally) and saying things that make me ask myself if it was safe to say to a mother, luckily she is my best friend so she never really makes me feel bad about anything I say or ask.
in the midst of our happy chatter, her tone changes and she says "one of our family members is a victim of fraud". I immediately panicked and asked what kind of fraud? And she said a 'fraudulent being' has used one of our family members clothing account from a certain 'reputable' store that a lot of South Africans know and love...I even went on to call it reputable because this has not even sunk in yet. I refuse to name and shame the store because I don't want to be caught defaming anybody.
of course there a…

early bloomer

I feel as though as young people, we are compelled to be great, put ourselves out there and let our intentions in this world be known. I don't know how it's going to end up because some of us aren't fully formed individuals yet.our passions may be or may not be unknown. we may be having trouble figuring out how to get our grove back or if we actually have groove at all.

I remember seeing myself as a very smart teenager; eager to learn, excited to make a mark, and just be one of the best people anyone would have an encounter with. The things i did then are very different to the person that i am now. Yes i was reserved but i was willing to fake it until i made it. I read books and knew so much! I was convinced i had a big IQ yet to be discovered and i knew words that i forgot now, remembered things i barely remember now. Its sad how my zest for a sense of individuality deteriorated as i got older.
In my mind, I would like to label it as being  an early bloomer when it came to …

imperfect majority, you are messing up..

21st century beauty is on another level. Something tells me that this is the century of beauty and vanity. We live in a fast evolving world,  a world where we might end up disliking ourselves just because somebody else looks better than  us; and sorry to pour sand in your soup but yes, some people do look better than most of us especially behind the lens and probably have their stuff together too than most of us.  The “glow up” has certainly taken place in many and flaunting it is a now or never.
 After many years of trying to love ourselves and have ourselves fit into a box, we are being told that there is a new box that we have to try and fit ourselves into, and we automatically feel like we cannot keep up with the standards of the world but still we look at the box and try to come up with ways to get out of the old box and fit into the new.
existence today is ridiculously expensive and emotionally straining, and it is no surprise that I would like to find a way to live life as a 20 …
