The One with the Marauders.

  I met my best friends through Jesus. (yes, life is full of little ironies.) I met Wangu in class 8. On Sundays, their boarding school used to come to my church. I only went to church because my house was so full yet so infuriatingly quiet on Sunday mornings and that bothered me. Wangu's…

The One with the Awkward Stage.

Not-so-fun fact: Regardless of how bad you want it, you cannot (and will not) Simone Biles your way out of the awkward stage. The awkward stage is, well, the first couple of months after locking your hair throughout which your head looks like a cross between bald patches and a sisal plantation. A lot of…

The One, again.

I want to see the world with you. From The Louvre to Table Mountain. The Louvre. Fun fact #1: 80 days. That's what it would take to go through the entire Louvre - and only if we spent a minute on each piece. Obviously, the 192,000 for the daily tickets 80 times in a row…

The One with the Fears.

And there's also the crippling thought that Greedo might have actually shot Han Solo first, but apart from these, yes, I do have a couple of conventional fears: Acrophobia…

The One with the Books.

I think I’m selectively compassionate which I'm positive doesn’t count because your everyday villain has a selective virtue too. Try watching the Star Wars prequels before the sequels…

The One with the Journal.

2014 was like being in a Wes Anderson movie. Whoever was directing it needed every emotion to be on one or the other end of the spectrum. Depression vs Euphoria. With some sort of inexplicable calmness in every scene.It was always colourful and the soundtracks were amazing. But, we were always confused. So we kept…

The One in Cape.

  I want to move to Cape Town. I want to have a library hall with lots of bean bags and mahogany seats where kids and oldies can read all kinds of books. I'll have collected poems I'll read a million times over, graphic novels and comics that I'll glance at once in a while…
