How is something so wrong so normal?
by Camillus King`ori [my elder brother] I think almost everyone will agree that the entire universe comes from the same source, created by the same hand. Yet, I have never looked up at the night sky and thought, 'You know what would make those stars shine brighter?' I have never looked at a bonfire and... Continue Reading →
How do you know if you are on the right path? When I picked out the sticky note, I felt that this was such a loaded question and spent the next two weeks wondering, ‘Indeed, how do I know if I’m on the right path?’ For one, my life from the outside looks filled with... Continue Reading →
Did I tell you about the time I wrote a bunch of different topics on sticky notes about aspects of life I would like to explore, threw them in a gift bag to be picked out one by one at random for me to blog about? No? Okay well, I just did. And with every... Continue Reading →
Post publishing thoughts: You know what's sexier than sharing? Feedback. A shout out to Eunice who told me though she saw the logic of this piece, she did not agree with it on the basis that sometimes you have to go the extra mile with some people, regardless. THAT I fully agree with. What I... Continue Reading →

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." - Reinhold Niebuhr After thought: My mind is fuzzy about this one, and like everything I write, this is just an opinion. You got something contrary? I'd be... Continue Reading →

From the School of Google there are varying thoughts on what makes you, well, you. Some say... Continue Reading →

It's 2:30am, I'm seated on my bed with a mug of cereal on the night stand and a mosquito trap-racket thing on my side. There are people who drink water and grow fat. Or look at chocolate and grow fat. Or JUST EXIST and grow fat. I'm none of those. I'm the ones that if... Continue Reading →
I won’t pretend that I’m not baffled….
Yes, that’s right. Christians don’t go to heaven when they die. Allow me to explain. If you grew up in a religious background, you’ve likely grown up believing when a person dies, they either go straight to heaven or hell.
