My two weeks as a vegetarian

So I decided that in order for my healthy weight-loss program to give me effective and quicker results I’m going to spend the next one year as a vegan. No meat, no processed foods and lots of veggies and fruits. That didn’t work out so well. I literally didn’t go beyond two weeks. I spent exactly one week and four days as a vegetarian. Don’t get me wrong, there’s apsolutely nothing wrong with anyone being vegan. It’s the healthiest lifestyle

The cold hard cement can teach you great lessons

Sometimes in life one does not realize how bad things are becoming until you fall flat down with your face on the ground. Being young and naïve doesn’t help either when you are heading for dark dangerous areas. You see, I grew up under the guidance of a praying mother. She would pray about and for a lot of things; in my young state I couldn’t understand the devotion to prayer even when some things seemed to be out of

Cold rainy days are for warm outings

My greatest love when it’s cold. This time of the year is great in Pietermaritzburg, it is cool and the flowers and trees are beautiful. All looks so great but God knows I hate the unpredictable London-like weather. Despite heating up the room and a cup of soup, still feels like something is missing. I think it’s the memories of cold days when I was younger that make me feel this way. My mom would make the warmest meal she

The day the devil went to church

(Fiction) One evening the devil was sitting and reflecting on all the things he’d done. While reminiscing on his life, he realized that he had really done a lot of damage to a lot of innocent people and some who weren’t so innocent. All this thinking actually made his head hurt and somehow reached at the core of his heart; that’s when he decided that it was time repent and on that warm Saturday night he decided to go to

The woman you always thought you could be

Remember when you were young you always imagined yourself as various women. You were the doctor who took care of all the sick patients despite their ailments, you cured everything. You were a perfect musician, the whole package, you sang and danced and even had that diva attitude and style to go with it. You were a pharmacist, made all different kinds of healing and life prolonging concoctions, though sometimes it was just sugar and grass, it worked. You took

Introduction to Afro

Before Pitch-Black showed up on the scene I used to have hair that my friends criticized because no matter how much I relaxed it and took care of it accordingly, it would always go back to its natural state within a week. After Pitch-Black came to the scene with his humongous afro, my friends started calling me pitch-black afro. Silly children; for a while I was upset about the way they talked about my hair as if it was some
