Tea & Coffee

Perhaps that’s the reason you drank tea – You needed the calm soothing aura to tame your wild oddity, It also explains why I drank coffee – I prerequisite the exhilarating spontaneity. At first glance, no one would categorize you and I in the same box, Your soul mimics the sounds of crackling flames, The…

Here’s what they don’t tell you about Possessive People

Possessiveness is the epitome example of “good intention, wrong method.” Possessiveness in the right amount is healthy in any relationship irrelevant of what the relation is, (romantic, friendship, family, pet etc.) this shows that the possessor cares and honestly is afraid of losing of what is possessed. Psychologically, a possessive quality is a survival mechanism…

“Are you two dating?”

If you ever visit any of my social media pages such as my Facebook account or my Instagram account (which I shamelessly post habitually) you will take notice of my very philosophical aesthetic pictures, and also at the fact that every second photo has a friend accompanying me. I absolutely love posting pictures with my…

#FeesMustFall supporters, it could have been different

I understand that violence as a method of protesting is probably the fastest way for drastic change. Violent gestures like the ones we have come to witness in the #FeesMustFall campaign promote fear and fear is the easiest scheme to get people to listen as well as gaining power over the public. History gives us…

A View on Love – from a Person who hasn’t been Romantically Involved

What is love exactly? Ensuring the person is physically healthy, eating clean and if their immune system has crashed, insist on medication, warm beverages and lots of rest. Ensuring the person’s mental state is not edging towards a breakdown or a burnout. Stress is natural but if it comes to too much, you’d be the…

Two Reasons of Why I don’t Confide in People

I started my tertiary education in February this year and trust me when I say I am having the time of my life! I’m finally socialising with people who I connect with and surprisingly understand on a deeper level, but I am still quite stunned of how these people open up to me. I sometimes…

Geneva Protocol

It’s a humorous thing when our atoms touch, The Cerebrum stops my thoughts and actions, But my Limbic System senses you. My bloodstream gets dosed with chemicals, Blood vessels dilated, My heart is under strain. Gaseous exchange becomes grim, Core temperature rapidly rising, Skin is reddened to crimson, Stomach alkaline is incapacitated. Serotonin feeding my…

Phosphenes

Phosphenes (n) – The lights or stars when you tightly close or rub your eyes. They’re usually caused by a temporary increase in pressure inside the eyeball – such as that caused by rubbing the eye – which stimulates the cells of the retina automatically, giving the appearance of lights when there is no light…

“No, I don’t want to go to the Cinema with you.”

Thinking through situations, whether they are certain or of possibility, becomes a mandatory skill to possess when one is trying to live a normal life whilst having a physical disability. Eighty percent of the time it is: understanding that you have restrictions and knowing how far you can go without discomforting those around you. In…

What I’ve learned in the Girls’ Bathroom

• That Suzie* is a slut; • That Emma* thinks she’s royalty; • And that the bathroom has the perfect lighting to take a selfie. During this past week, the only reason of why I made frequent trips to the ladies’ toilets was to cool down my reddened skin complexion. I had experienced a few…

Secrets of the Nightly Hours

I have always found something serene about the nightly hours, The Earth is never as tranquil when the Sun radiates. And as the Moon controls the tides, The darkness propels our thoughts, Do we truly comprehend what we wish to possess. We are vulnerable, exposed with not one stitch on our skin. The night knows…

The Ultimate Quote about Perspective

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero…
