The strangest reading slump ever aka the war on narrative

This is a cry for help. I am having the weirdest (non) reading slump I’ve ever experienced in my life. If you don’t know what a reading slump is, it is basically a phase in life where you no longer feel like reading.  You start a book and can’t seem to finish it. A reading…

You are Precious

Yesterday I worshipped the Lord God Almighty. I was listening to a song whose lyrics state “I sing for joy at the works of your hands”. (Shout to the Lord – Chris Tomlin) My heart was filled with such joy as I raised my hands and considered the works of His hands – I thought about…

Half-eaten meat pastry and soiled bedding – Skin darker than the media lets you see – Mental health skewered by politics – Foreign foreigners foreign foreign – You’ve got to be sensible to be desensitised Remain sane with Limbs falling, Rotting, Eyes blinded towards hate, Homophobic Systems which make them semi-human,…

Don’t Think/Just Do It

Dear ladies, Love yourself before you love another, so that removing your clothes does not feel like ripping off a plaster.

Sometimes it’s time to stop fighting. They say the view is better from the mountains but why not bury me in the valleys? This earth feels like home. Giving up on a goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tyres because you got one flat. But what about the second setback?…

Mental Health

I’ve perused many a blog and I find it amazing how open they are.  All these people willingly discussing depression or anxiety or some other form of illness they’re going through, that they would never mention in real life. (And I know this, because I’m close to these people and I never even knew.)  And…

God has called us…

The title to this post is going to seem completely contradictory to what I am actually writing. This post is just a reflection on something that happened to day, which was totally bizarre. Firstly, I define myself as a demisexual – somebody who cannot be sexually attracted to somebody unless there is a close, emotional…

Finding Yourself

I think the interesting thing about life is how you can discover new things about yourself on a frequent basis. I’ve learnt so much about myself in 2014 – more than I can remember ever learning about myself in a single year. The thing that prompted me to write this is that I’ve recently realised…

RANDOM POST TIME

I have this mentality that this is what blogs are for – random posts. The expelling of random thoughts. To make reality pretty and flowery and to present my ideas in a way that – to quote my lecturer – makes it sound like an intellectual wank. This is why I feel like my blog…

Raindrops on roses and detox from humanity 19th Sep 2014

I was going to update my blog with some more writing which I’ve been working on tonight, but it’d only be an extract and I haven’t made any revisions… So instead CUE ONE OF NIKKI’S RANDOM RAMBLINGS. There was just a hench-ass storm outside. The loudest storm I’ve ever heard. I looked out the window,…
