Diary of a Love Bugged Psychotic Girl

December 20th 2015 10.30am…. You passed by me. Focused on your work…not looking back. Hell,  I bet you didn’t even notice me checking you out. I have not been one to believe that love at first sight is real but I think I felt something that day. But maybe just maybe it was the insistent…

Fear

I am afraid of letting you see the real me I cover myself with fake joy and laughter but deep down am worn out from the pain that I have experienced I am not perfect but I fear that my imperfections will send you away I hold myself back from telling you when I am…

My Bucket List

So today I gave a speech on my achievements to a whole imaginary crowd.My mirror was the centre stage and my make up kit was the audience.Sometimes I think am losing it and it doesn’t bother me.You should’ve seen me all dressed and dolled up with my comb as the mic, smiling all the way…

The Kenyan Man Part 1.

The first thing that comes to mind when I talk of the Kenyan Man,is the unromantic kind of guy.This has been a song that is now a cliché. It’s even become a declaration that has been officially stamped and mailed to the Queen’s palace:’Kenyan men are not romantic at all!signed ‘Team Mafiset!’Well, I have come…

23

‘Oh Tess you’re now 23…time to get your ass up, hustle, move out of your mum’s house, eat right, save and invest, settle and stop getting bored with people.You’re grown..get a life!’ My sub-conscious can be so ruthless sometimes. I think when Riley from the ‘Inside out’movie was  getting those amazing and balanced emotions ‘Joy,…

The Art of Flirting

Flirting…as per the dictionary it’s just behaving as though attracted to or trying to attract someone, but for amusement rather than with serious intentions.But according to our generation it’s behaving as though attracted to someone with very heavy sexual intentions.I have been accused not once but severally of being a big flirt.C’mon am just a journalist…

2016 Knockout

Happy New Year y’all.If there’s anyone excited about 2017, that’d be me.Where do I even start?Well, unlike 2016, am hoping that this will be an amazing year.I’ve moved back home trying to score some huge deals with the locals, my dream of getting to the gym is being realised… not yet but will be very…

Bound

Am I crazy? Why can’t I just leave? You’re not right for me…I know… but I still do love you. I am bound to these imaginary chains you placed me into. I am beautiful, classy, smart, and sexy but I chose you. I could have gone for the Derek Romans and Mr. Moxams but am…

The Ideal Guy

It’s that time of the month when it’s raining cats and dogs and for all the single ladies and lads out there it’s one cold season. You keep moving thinking of how you’d want some bit of warmth in your bed. It’s that time when you hear someone whistling in the background you’ll be like……

Generation 3.0

It’s 2016. Women are empowered.We can do anything a man can do. We make very good presidents. Just look at the Liberian queen Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, not overlooking the likes of our own Amina Mohammed, Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs. I admire these two. They’re the real definition of strong women. But forget about  empowerment. Today…

Lost

I remember when I was young I envisioned myself as a great news anchor.My role model at the time was Julie Gichuru. I have always been good at languages both English and Swahili;my mother tongue, well I think I cleared that part in my earlier posts.But in case you missed it, boarding schools did me…
