Day 28

What is your zodiac sign and does it for your personality?

I do not believe in the horoscopes and hence I do not know which sign I am. I don’t believe it possible to truly believe in God and the horoscope. For a better break down of my beliefs please follow this link:

Day 27

Do you want to be famous?

No I don’t want fame. I do not believe it is as glamoro as we are led to believe. There’s nothing worse than having mush- minded individuals following your every move and passing judgement, as if they’re done and dusted in the art of life.

I want to be a remarkable poet amongst other things and if fame comes with it then so be it. But no slef respecting person should seek fame. I am honestly convinced that it is quite similar to selling your soul to the devil.

Be humble , keep your head down and achieve your dreams. I’m old school like that.

Day 24

Write about your worst injury:

I think I was about 6 at the time and I couldn’t ride a bike yet. Whenever he was feeling generous, my brother would let me pull a wheelie. I used to always think of it as an adventure until one day I got too excited and my foot got stuck in the spokes of the back wheel.

I still haven’t felt anything nearly as painful as that injury. It was excruciating to say the least, but I did get the best treatment to compensate. Believe it or not, I remember it fondly now because I got my favorite cereal and all.

Day 23

Letter to your future self:

Dear Chimbandi

There better be a few titles in front of your name by now, talk about pressure from your past.

Be you but whatever happens, no matter how much you do not like me, do not forget where you came from. You wouldn’t be where you are or as wise as you are without my mistakes.

Forgive but do not forget. If you’re different from who I imagined myself to be then it’s quite alright. I don’t mind as long as you’re happy. Change is the only constant we have and if you’ve adapted to the changes in your life, keep your chin up and make sure you’re happy.

I love you already.

Day 20

Things you like and dislike about yourself:

I’ve never really thought about what I like about myself, I just try to be a good person. I like my hands and feet. 

I really don’t like my temper, I try to work on it as much as possible. I am very emotional and though it comes with it’s perks I find myself wishing it wasn’t so.

Day 19

Your opinion on cheating on people:

Nothing real and worthwhile has ever been built on deceit. Half the time the sneaking around and all is not necessary, had the truth been out to begin, there would be no problem.

When people around you cheat, not just in your relationship, but friends and family too, it’s heartbreaking. You can’t help but question just where you went wrong. It’s wrong in that most of the time you’re not the problem, but deceit has a Nack for making good people drained and absolute.

Cheating is wrong and it plays with your emotions in the wrong kind of way.

Day 17

How have you changed in the past two years:

It just so happened that two years ago I moved to a country that I’d never been before to pursue my degree.

I worked and studied for two years whilst trying to mature as a poet, all I can say is it isn’t easy. I am definitely not the same little girl. I picked myself up enough times to know that I got this, life and it’s challenges.

I’m not the first student to earn their living and study full time, I was just the only one my roommate, floor mates, classmates, or anyone within an ear shot of had ever seen.

They pitied me, there’s nothing worse than having your hustle pitied for, when it should be respected. With time I made a few descent friends, I kept in touch with good old ones and my family (we’re pretty tight knit). With time I learnt to be proud of what I was achieving, slowly but surely.

All in all, during the course of 2017, I’m learning how I’ve grown, now that I’m back home again. I can tolerate the heat more than I used to. It sounds trivial,but until you’ve gone to Namibia do not judge me.I’m quick to walk away from negative energy and mindless chatter. All in all, I believe I’ve grown into a better rebel.

Day 16

What makes you different from everyone else:

Let’s start with my fingerprints, I’ve been told no two people can have the same, hehe. 

Next up, how I also don’t aspire to be anyone else but the best possible version of myself there is. I have people who inspire me, people I look up to bit it’s always just something, not everything. I believe this has helped me balance imitation and inspiration.

My experiences also have a part to play. My niece has a lot of aunts but none like me. Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen. A variation of it yes, probably, someone out there can relate, but not fully comprehend.

I think some of the little things also differentiate me from everyone else, like if we’re close, like genuinely close, I’m pretty sure noone else makes you feel the way I make you feel. There’s usually that extra something people who get to know me receive, I think it’s how they interpret my existence.

If the reasons above do not convince you, if you have the opportunity, get to know me better, I guarantee a unique experience.

Day 15

A moment you were most satisfied with your life:

I don’t think it’s possible for me to be entirely satisfied. I read this question and it seems like such a foreign concept.

I cannot visualize myself satisfied, better yet more than one moment. My mind is in constant turmoil, the most I can get to satisfaction is peace of mind.

I am usually most at peace after I’ve intimately conversed with my Creator, preferably after studying the word on my own and gotten a deeper understanding.

I hope this answers the my blog challenge request. Honestly this isn’t easy.

Day 12

Turn ons and offs:

Well my major turn ons would be confidence, not cockiness, there’s a fine line. Been able to have an intellectual conversation for the longest time, I appreciate that. Also been around someone who doesn’t objectify me as a sexual being, that comes highly appreciated.

Major turn offs are stupidity, blatant ignorence, materialistic way of thinking and people who don’t have the guts to venture out of their comfort zones.
