May.2018

Hey guys! May is finally here. I’m so excited about this month and for no apparent reason. I am just happy and grateful. It’s funny how when you start noticing how much good there is in life, you find yourself on the happier side of life. I see opportunities and life lessons even in the…

How I Plan On Getting Myself Debt-Free

‘Polite reminder! The SOONER you pay your loan, the more you grow your limit. Please repay TODAY to avoid loss of your (insert creditor’s name) credit’. First of all, this is more of a threat than it is a polite reminder. I am sure I am not the only one who gets goosebumps whenever you…

April.2018

Hey Folks! I hope you enjoyed your long Easter holiday. I secretly wished the weekend was a week-long 🙂 Anyways, I hope yours was as awesome as mine was. Diani was amazing, despite the heat. It made me realize just how beautiful Kenya is, but you gotta afford it. So, I got to work hard….

2018 Reading Challenge

So, I am super excited about this. I realize I should have done this post in the second week of January. It’s amazing how fast time wheezes by. I was still recovering from December blues and honestly, I hadn’t been fully committed to this blog. Basically, Goodreads has these annual Reading challenges where you commit…

Week 13.2018

Hey Guys! It’s yet another Monday. I don’t know about you but Monday blues got me literally forcing myself into doing this among other things. If I had it my way I would rather still be in bed. But then again, I guess the whole point of having this bit on the blog is to…

Week 12.2018

It’s scary, half the time I do not even know what I am doing. All the time. It’s hard but I am loving every step of the way. Most steps 🙂

Monday Blues

It’s 9:38 am. Just got out of bed. Actually dragged my fat ass out of bed. I am also taking a mental note on how frequent this has been happening lately. Anyways, I am sitting on the front porch, facing the bar and the pool which is finally clean! The air is pure and refreshing….

Cry it All Out

Most of my friends have never seen me cry or just can’t remember the last time they saw me cry. The last time I had a public emotional meltdown which lead to 2-3 hours straight crying, my friends were also crying. They had never seen me cry and hadn’t the slightest idea what to do…

Here goes nothing

So the first day of writing and i accidentally delete the entire post. Great! This will not deter me from getting this done though. This is some day. You know, I had a very important appointment in town and overslept. Woke up 2 hours later. Believe me I am not complaining considering I am fully…
