The Fear of God

God is real. Honestly, I am so happy and so shaken and so shivery and so awed right now. By God’s grace, I will relay in a comprehensive blog what happened tonight. (It’s 00:16am as I write now, but I’m talking about what happened between the hours of about 6pm-midnight). Let’s start at the very…

Happy new year! It’s only ten days into 2018 so like…it’s time to share some goals with you, right? Not that I’m saying sharing goals with others is conducive or wise at all. In fact, I will only be sharing a few of them and not going into much detail 😉 Without further ado – here…

‘I wonder how Nikki is doing on her language learning quest’ is a thought that’s been keeping you awake most nights, right? Right?! Well fear not because I am here with an update. (Edit: I am fully aware this question is probably on nobody’s mind, least of all my family’s, who have had to put up…

Do Better | Spoken Word

Because at one point or another, we have probably enabled the system.   Transcript as follows:   DO BETTER   I do not deserve to belong to this movement; I know that wokeness is not a state of being; It’s a journey we’re all on But I can’t forgive myself for having slept for quite…

Nikki learns: A new language

I’m learning a new language. It’s a pretty big deal and here’s why… Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was 100% sure I was awful at languages. If I ever met a polygot, I would tell them, “Wow. How can you do that? That’s incredible! (It is obviously) I could never do that.”…

Hey Booktube – Speak Up!

Something has been bothering me about Booktube lately, and no, it’s not the fact that every single booktuber and their mother seems to be in the process of writing their own book. (I think writing a book is awesome and the recent controversy surrounding this topic is understandable, yet not really necessary. But anyway!) I…
