Don’t Call Me A Christian

I don’t quite know how to express how I’m feeling at the moment, having watched Donald lay his hand on the Bible and reading about how he attended a prayer service before the inauguration.

Mom: you sound off, are you ok?

Mom: Drink lots of water

(The solution to most problems…)

Me: (i hate water) okk…so I’m thinking what to do for my birthday…

Mom: are you 43 this year?

Me: um no…45…

Mom: Really?

Me: (you gave birth to me!) yes mom…45…

Every year my company shuts down for 3-4 weeks over Christmas and I often go away to family and am not in my hometown for the holiday season. For the last 2 years however I have been home and this year I decided to be a tourist in my own city and see it with new eyes.

Lesotho Day Tripping

Sometimes in the mad rush and stress of my working life, I get the opportunity to do something out of the ordinary. I was asked to make a day trip to a customer based in Maseru, Lesotho. Amid the angst of work related issues I was just a teeny bit excited to see part of South Africa that I’d never seen before as it involved a passport and crossing the border into the Lesotho mountains.

Daily there is loss of life and we seem to pick and choose the events that shake us. Those that drive us to change our profile pics, post a status update, retweet a comment or follow a hashtag.
