Oh The Cocoa-nfusion

This is going to be a short story. I may get to the point eventually; but am going to waste time going round and round about a whole lot of personal crap that you probably don’t give a damn about. You know, just to keep things going. I have guilty pleasures that I have no […]

Officially 29

If at all shit had gone according to plan, I would have been in Kisumu over the weekend. But no, it never did. With me, things can fail to go to plan any minute. Before I get to the destination, my presence there is not guaranteed. I can go cold turkey on anyone or anything […]

WRAPPING UP 2017

For the past decade, every new year has found me in church. 2017 was no exception. Other than it being a family tradition, I love the joy that comes with celebrating the new year in church.

Familiar Much?

The time is 10.28pm, Monday 4th December 2017. I am not yet asleep; I am watching a movie. It’s a Marvel Studios’ production. I am a huge fan of Marvel. Other than the fact that their movies are awesome, they know how to cast. If you are not enjoying the movie, you are enjoying the […]
