Especially the ones where you enter yourself and ask members of the public to vote.  I was surrounded by people who didn’t like competitions, who campaigned against them. The longest time I thought they had a point. Asking for votes […]

Unpopular opinions and other unnecessary things.

I am close to 30 and I figured it’s time I stop shying away from things. I am going into a new era and I am going to own it. However long it may last. Post after post of ’50 facts about me” have crossed my screen and each one more boring than the next. […]

I don’t like Durban

Ok to be fair, it is gorgeous and the warm water is lovely. Durban didn’t do anything to me. But it has become one of those places you associate with a shit time/event/feeling. You know? When a song reminds you something you simply skip it on your playlist and move on. Durban has now become […]
