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…

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…

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…

Misunderstood Artists: A Chain of Thought

I fail to understand how society differentiates between or rather interprets what is and isn’t a good influence in the field of pop culture for people. There are so many cases where: parents disallow their children to view “certain” artists, teenagers start to judge other people for supporting “certain” artists and as a community we…

The Fight for Sympathy

I don’t know what saddens me more; that there is no compassion in humanity or that I hope there will be. On January 5th 2016, the President of the United States gave a speech on how he plans to tighten gun control in the US. Obama’s reasons mentioned the Second Amendment, the death toll caused…

On Interview Magazine’s cover with Kylie Jenner

We all know what caused the uproar from these photographs. That they somehow managed to be approved to go on the cover of Interview Magazine. Kylie Jenner posing quite provocatively, dressed in latex stating that using a wheelchair as a prop tickled her fancy. The physically impaired community, who need the assistance of a wheelchair,…
