Oopsy Poopsy!

What goes around comes around and bites you where the rays of the sun don’t reach. When you send something negative forth it gains momentum and it eventually comes back to you like a wrecking ball. I can feel interest in this post going down so I believe now is a good time to inform... Continue Reading →

Nutty November

No-shave November is upon us yet again. This time it’s different because I finally have something on my face to not shave. It is tiny and not very visible from afar, but up-close it is undeniable. It can be seen and felt, but most importantly, it can be shaved, or in this case, not shaved.... Continue Reading →

Slice Of Heaven

How can I sleep, when my temples are pulsating to the tune of my heartbeat? How do I drift away when my unusually bulging tummy is threatening to explode, when its contents are at war with no real winner? At the same time adrenaline is flowing plenty and I feel like I could ride an... Continue Reading →

One Is One Too Many

This is a devastating story about a young girl who went through an ordeal very many unfortunate girls and women alike have had to go through. It is not just a story, not just another blog post, but also a call to self-examine and take action. One woman defiled is one too many.

My Toxic Woman

I have always had hoarder tendencies. I hold on to things until I am completely sure that their utility is depleted. Sometimes it takes me too long to reach this realization but that’s just the way I am. Other reasons for hoarding include sentimental value and attached memories. Recently, I came across a piece I...

We Fall, We Rise

I paused at the entrance as I often did, to admire how chic the lounge was. The designer had played around with brown wood and dark leather to give the place a sophisticated timeless yet vintage look. The lighting was bright enough to ease visibility and soft so that it felt mysterious. The patrons were... Continue Reading →

The Best Laid Plans

This has been quite a month, a month of finals. I wish I could say all of it was sweet and nice, like ending the four-year abusive relationship that is school, but that just isn’t how life works. I’ve had the worst combination of interests any one can have this year. Three of my favourite... Continue Reading →

In the Name of Love

I have a female best friend. I honestly believe that every man should have one. She’s like a breathing cheat code in all matters women. I pride myself in being perceptive but I do miss a few things concerning our female counterparts. That’s where she come in. for the purposes of privacy we shall refer... Continue Reading →

Demystifying Cheating

My friend Natalie called me a few days ago. Her voice was unusually calm and solemn. “Could you please come to my place? It’s a bit urgent,” she said before hanging up. I didn’t even get the chance to respond and that’s how I knew she was not at all requesting. I hate not having... Continue Reading →

Unsteady

Bikothoughts #65 Why do we watch the moon and stars when the sun rises to scorch the earth? What is the purpose of showering to get dirty; rewriting what you erased and erasing what you rewrote; wiping the blood away from an oozing wound? Why go to sleep when dawn is inevitable? What leaves cure... Continue Reading →

Of Flightless Birds

A considerable portion of the most unfortunate moments of my life begin with a gloat. One would think that after establishing this pattern I would stop taking opportunities to flex but one would be wrong. It’s engrained in my DNA, almost pathological. I own a big trumpet and I love to blow it. See what... Continue Reading →

Hands Off The Elephants!

I’ve always had a soft spot for animals, especially the ones I can’t barbecue. I believe animals should be treated with dignity and respect so I get offended when people won’t feed their dog or when someone just kicks their cat around. The way donkeys are treated in this country makes me sick. Animals are... Continue Reading →

Betrayal

Bikothoughts #105 He took me from my perfectly still world and brought me to his that was full of disaster, stricken by the harsh lightening of chaos and riddled with wars. I was afraid, scared to leave behind my innocence. Scared to lose the euphoria of my blissful ignorance, hesitant to step out of my... Continue Reading →

Revolution By Fire.

Multiple high schools in Kenya have almost been reduced to ashes over the past few weeks. For close to two decades, learning has been interrupted almost yearly by students' riots. Fire is a close ally to these. Every time this happens the conclusion is the same; the students are rowdy, lack discipline, and are jittery... Continue Reading →

Position vs Disposition

From exorbitant gym membership fees and unusually priced pens catered for by our taxes to recurring scandals involving obscene amounts of money, it is very clear that Kenya's leadership is pure pandemonium but there isn't much agreement on why the situation is as it is. Is it that we keep trusting the wrong people or... Continue Reading →

Hey, Bartender!

FIFA World Cup is back! And what a better way to enjoy your team thrashing it's opponents than while getting intoxicated by your favorite beverage? Sports do well with alcoholic beverages because both are well-known social lubricants and ways to just kick back and relax. But how many people actually drink properly? Do you understand...

Unholy Matrimony

With his usual nonchalant strut, Kyle made his way up the slight steps and onto the threshold of the cathedral hall.  He was clad in a brown vintage suit, complete with his favorite splurge of jewelry. His right hand carried his ruby-coated swagger staff with real gold at its head. He had no eye accessories... Continue Reading →

Stereotypes? Not my type.

A few weeks ago on a Friday I was traveling from Nairobi to Machakos and I had a very interesting and enlightening journey. The best time to beat Mombasa road traffic out of town on a weekend is to travel anytime past eight o'clock in the evening and I was boarding my matatu at around... Continue Reading →
