My Dreams of School

I am a dreamer, no doubt, but my dreams of school are the most interesting by far. My dreams of school, especially secondary school, are both scary but also relieving when I wake up and realize I cleared school. I went to high school at Kagumo High School in Nyeri, Kenya and it was a […]

Devilishly Handsome

I don’t mean to blow my horn but I know that I look good and it is funny that sometimes others don’t know how to handle it. For the guys, it’s almost shocking how this guy looks and some will even feel a little weird for acknowledging it. For the girls, they will either fall […]

A Letter to Myself

Hello, my boy. How are you doing? I always ask you if you are happy because to me, your happiness is my first priority. I could have been anyone in this world, I could have been extremely rich or very poor, I could have been good or bad? Handsome or not handsome? I could have […]

Becoming

The process of becoming is a very hard but rewarding process. It is also a gradual process. If someone told me before I started blogging to become a blogger knowing what I know today, there would have been a legitimate argument against it. But I became and today I enjoy creating content, albeit with a […]

The Pain of Silence

In life it is always wise to express oneself respectfully, especially to say and make clear what it is that you want. The pain of silence is literally the pain one undergoes when they are afraid of and do not say what they want or go after their dreams. If you want something, and I’d […]

Dad

The story of my dad is a story of love, laughter, and family. My dad was the happiest person I knew and even in his passing, I know that my father was a happy person. We lost our dad almost 9 years ago now and life has never been the same without him. My father […]

Mama

In all my almost 24 years of life, I have never known a love more true than a mother’s love. My mom or mama is my everything. She is my rock and the one person in the world who would cross an ocean for me. My mom has been with me in all of my […]

The Reebok X Cardi B – B Unexplainable Collection

Reebok have an awesome new collection created in conjunction with Cardi B. The new Reebok X Cardi B collection brings new energy, a saucy attitude, and the ever-unapologetic pizzazz of Cardi B. Cardi B is an amazing rap/hip-hop musician whose attitude and sass are on another level. I remember hearing my first song from Cardi […]

Beauty with Grace Wanjiku

‘Beauty with Grace Wanjiku’ is a photoshoot that I went to with Grace Wanjiku. The photoshoot was super amazing, and we created such great photos that we opted not to select some as the good ones were more than the not so good. Grace Wanjiku is a student at Murang’a University. She was such a […]

Brand Collaborations

Brand collaborations are an integral part of how bloggers, vloggers, and content creators can assist companies and organizations in marketing their products to consumers. The ‘influencer’ phenomenon allows brands to reach consumers in personal and relatable ways through influencers with who they collaborate within brand collaborations. As a content creator myself, I am eager and […]

My Vlogging Journey

My ‘vlogging’ journey started back in school when I realized the opportunity that creating a vlog would present. I knew I wanted to express my views, opinions, and standpoints. I found YouTube and other video sharing platforms to be very useful in creating a video journal, blog, or ‘vlog.’ Vlogging is not easy. A lot […]

Retouching My Locs

Retouching My Locs is part of the out-of-this-world journey of donning dreadlocks or ‘locs.’ I love my locs. I love them so much that I would feel lost without them. For me, dreadlocks are more a philosophical hairstyle than just wanting to look good. Dreadlocks are me, and I am dreadlocks. I see myself in […]

It is advisable to always keep your word in terms of the engagements and commitments you make to turn up somewhere. One should always be courteous and honest in ensuring that they are doing it with honesty and the actual intent […]

Caring is Not Being a Simp

A ‘Simp‘ is a male individual who cares too much about the unnecessary or inauthentic problems or behaviors of a woman. The word simp is short for sympathetic and/or simpleton. A simpleton is a silly or stupid person. Caring is not being a simp, and I feel like as an individual and a man, it […]

Ultra Black

‘Ultra Black’ is the name of this photoshoot that I went to with my friends yesterday. I decided to do a shoot to commemorate Valentine’s Day and do it as a single person would. I wore all black, a well-cut black suit with a black shirt and black brogues, so much for ‘Oxfords, not brogues,’ […]

Nirvana

Nirvana, also known as losing Samsara, is the state of enlightenment and Buddhists believe that one dies when they reach the state of Nirvana. To be enlightened or to reach Nirvana is the goal of living and entails losing all attachment to worldly things and trusting oneself and not the world. The teachings of Buddha […]

Social Life

I have been living in Ongata Rongai for just over five years now, and in that time, I have met several people. However, I have only had a few friends. I think it’s more of a personality thing because I am very socially shy, and I always have something that keeps me busy and away […]

Following My Own Path

After a year like 2020, I think we all have learned a lesson or two about being your own boss and following your own path. It sounds too good to be true, but you can and should strive to be your own boss. In my experience, working for someone can be good and can pay […]

My Epic Heartbreak

The story begins with me moving out of Ongata Rongai to a suburb, Ole Kasasi. I was just about to finish my bachelor’s degree in Business and IT, BBIT, and was seeking a place to be, away from the noise in Rongai. I was ready for the next stage in my life; earning some money […]

The Hippo Hangout

The few days before heading home for Christmas were nothing short of interesting. The same can be said for this new year. After going through a painful breakup, I found solace in taking random walks and exploring Ole Kasasi, Ongata Rongai. Walking has become my thing, and I try and take walks whenever I can. […]
