After the ‘hormonous’ postpublished yesterday I thought to do something different inspired by a conversation with a colleague in a matatu yesterday. She mentioned that we (she and I) are lucky to have jobs because some friends she graduated with two years ago don’t have any. I can’t promise to do it daily but I... Continue Reading →
So there goes my plan to work from home… the kitchen is being renovated and when I left this morning it was but an empty shell, kinda like something you’d see as the aftermath of intensive gun fire in a war film.
