Oh-no

For most of my school year, I was the ‘most likely to become a  neurosurgeon”girl. I was the teacher’s pet, a regular patient at the library and the girl you turned to when you were over your mum’s peanut butter sandwich (because I always had a stash of zadza dama’s in my pocket) girl. Till…

What Is Happening ?

I wish someone would start a Period box subscription service in Zimbabwe . You probably think I’m crazy ,I mean here I am ,sitting  on my couch with a massive unfinished double beef burger (yep,it has cheese) staring at me daring me to finish it while I type on my laptop like a beta version…

Unlucky In Love

Here’s the thing about Mr Right :He probably doesn’t exist .The truth is ,you could grow old sitting around waiting for Mr Right . That didn’t come out right .What I meant to say is that waiting to accidentally run into ‘The One’  on a normal day in a queue in OK ,or waiting to…

Harare’s Matchmaker

I often get asked how I became a matchmaker .It wasn’t something that I dreamed about when I was burning the midnight oil at NUST trying to get that computer science degree and it definitely wasn’t what my parents had in mind when they sold half of their kraal to take me to university .I…

Confessions of a Snackaholic

I have a confession to make. I am a snackaholic . Not  the snackaholic weirdo that shares the corner office with you and always has bread crumbs with honey syrup stuck on their face (like gross argh ). If you are not familiar with that guy (you are so lucky ),it’s time I introduced you…

Going Crazy Waiting

I may be writing this after 3 glasses of wine, but hey, to each his own. I’ve read Psalm 37:4 thirteen times .Yes ……thirteen times. In Shona and English .This verse is the shizzle .I don’t give a hoot if it was written a long time ago .It is the most empowering piece of literary…

Are You There ,Sanity?It’s Me, Ancillar

Dear 2018

Dear 2018, Here’s the thing. I’m pretty sure you’re out there. Somewhere. Hiding behind a rock? Busy waiting for midnight so you can make an entrance like the diva you are ? No? Yes? Maybe you’re just chilled and waiting to unleash whatever you have in store for me . I just wanted to write to…
