Against my better judgement, I decided to take a break from writing a school report to watch, as I told myself then, just one episode of Netflix's hit show 'sex education'. Having been mildly disappointed by previous teen dramas like '13 reasons why', I didn't particularly expect to like it much but before I realised, … Continue reading ‘Sex Education’ on Netflix
Had I written this post a few hours earlier, I would have probably centred it around how grateful I feel to be at a top tier university, how difficult it’s been cooking and feeding myself and perhaps how easy, thanks to boarding school , the transition has been from home to here. While those things … Continue reading Unidays1
I don't know or understand much about God. And in all honesty, I've been stagnant at a place of wavering faith for some time now but the one thing I can't shake off is this testimony. I've literally been uneasy for daysss because I haven't shared it. For the record, I can't answer many questions … Continue reading a testimony
I recently read "Letter from Birmingham jail", a letter Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) wrote while imprisoned for participating in a non-violent protest. The letter was written in response to a public statement condemning MLK's involvement in the protest. The church leaders who made this statement called the protest "unwise and untimely". Hopefully, that is … Continue reading “Letter from Birmingham jail”
My desire/resolution to take my blog more seriously has surprisingly brought up some issues I wasn't exactly ready to deal with. I've always been a fan of story telling and I deeply admire people who pursue it in all forms - writers,musicians, artists, photographers etc. Starting this blog gave me a sense of belonging in … Continue reading talent vs skill
One of the most difficult things I have had to come to terms with is realizing and accepting that as a woman many of my brothers, friends, uncles etc. will never quite see me as a ‘full’ human being, deserving of the agency to fully exercise all my rights. And this is not because many … Continue reading there are no brothers here
Like most people, I tried to be introspective about 2017 before the new year began, but to be honest, I couldn't remember anything significant. All I really did was get through the year, which to be fair, was not always easy. I struggled a lot with stress, loneliness and unbelief during the latter part of … Continue reading 2018!
As the year winds down, Ghana ironically becomes extremely busy/hectic and for me at least this means it has become more important to not get wrapped up in everything that's going on. I want to do things that I will enjoy and attend events that my budget can accommodate but I feel like amidst all … Continue reading desperate to stay true to myself
I'm going through an extremely difficult time in terms of my faith. when I wasn't as serious about having a relationship with God, I was never confronted with the fear and anguish that comes with unbelief, yet suddenly, it has become something I can't seem to overcome. For me, it's not really a matter of … Continue reading unbelief
Every time someone leads a prayer in church and says something along the lines of "thank God you are alive today because many people slept and did not wake up", I find myself immediately opening my eyes to side-eye them. But using side-eyeing as a way to distract myself from the underlying issue seldom works. … Continue reading feeling grateful for being privileged or should i say, “blessed”.
