30 Notes on Turning 30

Heeey lovely people! Can you believe your girl just turned up on the THIRD FLOOR?! Guys, my heart is bursting with gratitude! Weirdly, turning 30 doesn’t bring me down like previous birthdays did; in fact, I’m feeling awesome! I have no birthday blues; no wallowing in deep pits of disappointment or regret (praise the Good […]

Your Voice Matters

I’ve been into singing since I was very young. Most people don’t know this, but I started singing at weddings when I was barely 13 years old. So I was in various bands with people who were way older than me. Sometimes, there would be some problem. When I tried to suggest a solution, the […]

My Struggle with Depression

Last year, I hit a low. It all started with a “we regret to inform you” email that crushed me. You know those opportunities you apply for and in your heart, you convince yourself you got it… I didn’t get any of them. So I didn’t take it very well. I spent my days in […]

Life Currently (February 2020)

A happy new year to you! (Is it too late? Pffft there are no rules to this, receive my new year greeting with glee please). I’m hoping 2020 has started with a great big bang. How are we doing with the resolutions? Kapena that’s an area we shouldn’t even talk about? Tiyamba za serious later? […]

Life Currently (July, 2019)

Hello loves! It’s been over a month since I had a new blog post. Please be assured, it’s been a tough month of nagging myself to write, while fighting the urge to put up a meaningless post, just for the sake of it. But I decided to update y’all on my life currently so some […]

My path as a Message Believer

I’ve thought about writing on this topic for a while – actually, years – and I’ve fought it for so long. This is because this is something very personal and I worried that some people may misunderstand me or call me a fanatic… ongozitengela or okokomeza. But I am finally writing about this simply because […]

25: I Am Still Learning

The weeks leading up to my 25th year were the hardest for me. It was like someone had just dropped a tonne of bricks (lol) on me. I started to feel really old, and anxiety kicked in. This time, it wasn’t necessarily “what have you even achieved, Fai?” but, “wow, time is going by so […]

Staying afloat: On the Journey to a Breakthrough

I usually don’t do a month catch up, or something regular to talk about how my life is going (because I don’t want to commit to something I won’t follow through. I also don’t have an exciting life to keep that running), but hey, I think I need to sit down, breathe, and talk about […]

“Read”

If there’s one thing I commend my father for, is the reading habit that he instilled in us. When we were in primary school, he made us go to the National Library. He made us members and we would borrow 2 books at a time. The National Library in Zomba is located at Luangwa Parish. […]

What if I died?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you died? If you think too much like me, then you probably even imagined your funeral. I have. A lot of times. Especially when I’ve collapsed, or fallen ill. Recently I got so ill I told mum I was going to die. But she replied, […]
