The past few months have been some of the most challenging months I’ve been through. With the pandemic and dull weather, it was only a matter of time before it finally got to me, and for the first time, I quit.
It wasn’t a knee jerk decision. It was a decision that had been made mentally a long time ago, only to be done now. But how did I get to this point? That’s the only question on my mind.
On Friday morning, I woke up with so much joy. I can’t remember the last time I felt that happy…
You’ve probably heard about the phrase: “the 6th man” in basketball. If you haven’t, there is a movie called “the 6th man” where a teammate scores a slam dunk and suffers a heart attack while hanging on the rim. His brother who is also a teammate calls on him for support as the team begins to suffer loses without him. His ghost shows up and helps the team to surprising wins. Well, we may have a real-life twelfth man in football. He is one of the most, if not the most, consistent central midfielder in the premier league. The French…
This pandemic have thought us one key thing: Life is not guaranteed. It is better to enjoy every waking moment than to constantly wish we were somewhere else. Appreciate everyone and people in your life, take life with a definite stride chasing your goals and living to your fullest. Tomorrow is not guaranteed but that shouldn't prevent you from living.
Great post! Thanks for sharing
We are one interconnected human race on a shared planet.
I asked you to lead me deeper into the oceans,
to take me into the deep.
Where my faith will be made stronger,
where my trust is beyond borders.
You took me there and at first,
I walked on water with my faith stronger than the wind that tossed the sea.
Just like Peter, I looked around and saw the tempest raging,
my faith sank, and the waters began to swallow me.
I cried out with outstretched arms,
heart wide open, and a broken spirit. …
When you think you’ve learnt something new, you find out you don’t know much. We all know the famous quote saying:
“If you think you know everything, you know nothing”.
As a programmer, I have found that programming can enjoyable, painful and fun all at once. However, as a beginner, one thing to keep in mind is that you can’t know everything and you don’t need to know everything about a language to start. I had a different view when I was at university, but I soon learned, you cannot know everything. All you need is to be adaptable.
In the world we live in today, there is a social construct built around the emotions of men. I read a book recently: “Cry like a man” by Jason Wilson. He talks about his life experiences. He went through the murders of his two sisters, an absent father, and his mother’s depression. Yet, despite all of this, he decided to express his emotions and let it all out.
After reading it, I realized something that we already know to be true. There is a misconstrued meaning to masculinity. Men in society fall into this endless circle, leading to high depression…
You have logged in to one of the credit checking providers, (either Experian, credit karma, clearscore or credit monitor) and you have seen your credit score. Now what? At this stage, you should know from my previous post on this what a credit score is and the factors that affect it. Before you read on to understand the information available in your report, what’s the difference between a credit report and a credit score?
One day I’ll whisper softly into the wind,
and tell them of how tender you are.
How you pulled me close,
and wrapped me in your warm embrace.
One day I’ll tell of the love you showed me,
and the wonders of your mighty hand.
How you called me to yourself,
and showed me the way in this race.
One day I’ll tell of the peace you gave me,
and tell them of how wonderful you are.
How you searched for me
and spoke peace to my raging heart.
One day I’ll whisper softly into the night,
and tell them of…
Shortly after graduating from university, I needed to purchase a new laptop using credit. However, I had a problem; I had no credit history, which is just as bad as having a bad credit score. Applying for a credit card was difficult as I had no proof of managing credit in the past. Realising I needed to build a credit history, I had to put aside my fears of having debts. I decided to learn how credit score works and took the necessary steps that increased my credit rating in the following months.

It’s hard not to notice the predicament that the world is in at the moment. Since covid-19 spread worldwide, many countries have had to impose lockdowns and implement measures to limit the spread of the virus. Some succeeded, and others have not. In the midst of this, we have seen an increase in other issues: mental health issues, job loss, losing a loved one, uncertainty for the future and many other problems people now face.
Each day we wake up with expected unexpected news. The unexpected has become the norm, and many thoughts fill our waking moments that are most…
