It’s amazing, the nostalgia, of when wattpad was wattpad ; I really don’t know what goes on there these … Continue reading We Need Writers Like This
Hey, you guys. I’ve finally come to accept the fact that I can’t blog and school at the same time – the whole thing about schedules don’t ever work for me, because most times I’m too tired to edit drafts or photos, so they pile up in my phone. I mean, I started writing this … Continue reading Life Lately – August.
I have a few words for the public Healthcare system but today is not that day…. Or maybe it is. You know that no one actually cares until it hits home, right? I fell ill during the early rainy season and this was not regular cold or fever. It knocked me out pretty bad, took … Continue reading From the throes of hell
Growing up, I had a cousin that did not roll with us, being the younger ones. Why? I don’t know.

I Watched the back of the man walking by, my heart in trembling palpitations, silently hoping it wasn't him with those girls. First he dropped one off and picked another on his way out. Staring out of my apartment window, I hoped it wasn’t him but even I knew the fates were not in my favor that night, and I stood for the entire 30 minutes it took him to be done and leave her apartment.
Revenge they say, is a dish best served cold but then, I wouldn’t know, I like my meals spicy hot. People think I’m mean, when all I do is look out for my family.
