My jaw dropped when I read that South Africa currently has about 26 universities and 240+ prisons! It makes you question whether the system truly wants educated citizens who can think critically for themselves. While we’re on the subject of university and tertiary education… President Jacob Zuma announced the implementation of free tertiary education for…

I refuse to hold any of it in, I am ecstatic that I made it into the new year! I roll my eyes at most holidays and celebrations, but the blessing of a new year excites me. I am not typically one for “new year, new me” resolutions because, let’s be honest, most of them…

I want to hold it in But if I don’t self-express I self-destruct. Overexposed young blood runs in me so weary and cold. Frost-bitten chambers of this heart have grown old.

Alright, that’s enough deep thinking for now. I can understand why you’d feel helpless in the fight to save our dying world, but surely we can agree that it’s worth a try. It’s time to wash our dirty laundry and let it out to dry. You’re not alone, we’re all guilty of feeding the monster…

I’d like to assume that you’re someone who takes pride in how you present yourself. You don’t necessarily have to be obsessed with fashion or style, but in my head you at least wear clothes on a daily basis. If so (and I hope you do wear clothes) then this should hit home. Being a…

I am learning the importance of being kind to myself. Two decades is proving long enough to make me realize that nobody will ever teach me how to apologize to my body, for all it’s imperfection. I consciously invested over 20 years shrinking myself, exaggerating myself, playing too small, going too big, ‘toning’ it down…
