Pity Party for Two Please?

I’m 23 and it looks like I should have my life figured out by now. I look around and all I see is my summa cum laude graduated highschool classmates, stable relationships, God is in control type post all over my news feed, Its almost like Their faith, love life and academinc life all got brewed up into a pot of merriment and success and what am i doing, I am a college dropout doing educational time in one of the oddest places in the world. I’m not even sure when my last honest prayer was. I say too much…

Blurred Lines: My theory on love

I don't really remember when or how we first met, all I know is that he was my housemate's friend. He would drop by every now and then and say hi, drop a pick-up line or two, then be on his way. To be honest, I never took the pick-up lines seriously, I just thought he was my housemate's funny friend and they seemed cute together. I remember him asking me one thing though: "Chico, when are we gonna be friends, you're always in that room of yours glaring at your laptop, trust me I am just as interesting, if…

PROWL MEETS WAGWAN

It was early last week ,while doing the lazy girl activity of group chat perusing I have come to love so well,that I stumbled upon Wagwan's App's Ad .At first glance it seemed like another epic fashion designer's failed attempt of making designer wear -forgive me I had just seen the sneakers .My small mind wanted to scroll down and keep reading on about some failed celebrity's marriage till the word APP called out to the geek in me that is .I had always been of the school of thought that no one was going to build an app for…

College Situationships: My Theory of Love

Nobody really expects to be the 21 year old who has never dated or been kissed or asked out on a real date. Every pot has its lid and yet this pot seems to not have been paired with one. Interestingly though there is never a shortage in the amount of ineligible bachelors to entertain me. Amidst all this i wonder at my theory on love. Who's report shall i believe? My broken hearted, jilted friend, my other broken hearted not jilted friend, the bible, the movies or my eyes. In my attempt to figure this out i have been…

REAL TALK, NO FILTER: MY THEORY OF LOVE

I remember watching a certain movie and learning something about how the dating world is a game of musical chairs. According to this concept after a certain age all the decent guys and girls are either married, dead or have discovered that they bat for the other team. This means then that after this certain age you will find yourself wanting to be in a stable relationship but unable to get into one because it's a game of musical chairs and you my friend have been left standing. I would like to say that this concept does not bother me…

Up for the challenge, down for the dare!

Prowlmag_daretodare challenge I woke up one morning and decided i did not want to be just another oxygen inhaling earth inhabitant. My college experience had to amount to more than just good grades and a clean record. The first step towards that was to surround myself with the people who encouraged me to be the best version of me that i could be. Shout out to my roommate from second year (among others) who had to sit through my countless one-sided  life altering deep and meaningful conversations about nothing and everything. The thing that they never tell you though when…

AUNT-FLO MYTHIFIED

When I got my first visit from Aunt Flo, I cried. I was terrified of the impending doom that awaited me in the near future. My small mind couldn’t comprehend how wearing an extra weight in my panties would certify growing up. Just a few months before, while going on about my business, I had overheard some girls talking about cramps. The way they described cramps –made it seem like a consequence of human negligence on your body and from that day on I was terrified of the monthly visitor that I wanted to pack my luggage, board a plane…

CHASING “AS I AM”

I often would lounge on my couch and ask myself ‘how many shades of black are there in the world? How can I be black when I don’t compare to the colour of the Kango pot in my ambuya’s kitchen?’ I have met my share of black women –petite, curvaceous, smart and bilingual .Looking out to the world at the vastness of black women in my city-I hated being described as a shade of black when I assumed that I was brown (according to the colour codes my pre-school teacher gave me) and I hated being called a ‘coconut too’…

CHASING IN STILETTOS: DEON MURURAMI

Someone wise once said "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." My name is Deon Mazvita Mururami, it is with this premise that i find myself with love for giving the young girls who have had it hard in life a chance at being great. I feel that once u give them an opportunity you have reduced the chances of poverty and HIV on a large scale. Empower our young girls, teach them to work with their own hands and stand on their own,…

Kingdom Confessions

Lately i have been feeling a lot like God has let me down. I know right...CRAZY! But, I can't help it. Yes nothing extremely horrible has happened to me, I have had quite the sheltered life. The worst thing that has happened to me is probably what those, who have really had life" happen"  to them, would experience on a good day, and yet i feel a lot like the disappointments keep piling up and there is nothing i can do about it. You know what i mean...those moments when all you seem notice is bumper stickers that say..."God's time…
