Let’s Talk About Sex

At the beginning of the year, one of the things I resolved to do more of was to talk about a few controversial topics: one of them is sex. This article is rated NV for Non-virgin. Proceed further at your own risk. Sex is dirty. I don’t mean that in the holier-than-thou-my body-is-the-vessel-of-the-Lord kinda way.… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Sex

A BOOK A WEEK

At the beginning of this year – or more accurately at the end of last year – I resolved to read more books.

  If I could summarize my 2016 in one sentence, it’d be the question, “What do you have to lose?” Early in January 2016, I received a call from threesixtyGh asking if I would be interested in joining their writing team.

Rejoice wrestled open the door of the room she shared with three other absent roommates and took in the morning of 31st December. There wasn’t much to take in though. Everywhere from just a few metres away from her door was blanketed in the thick harmattan fog and if she stretched out her hand to… Continue reading HOME
