I had had a crappy day at work and was from doing my shopping when I see this man on the street from the corner of my eye. His leg was broken at a really weird angle - I wonder what had happened to him. He obviously couldn't walk. He was begging for money on … Continue reading Now we have to explain why we give money to beggars??
I was reading Start With Why - Simon Sinek, and it got me thinking about my WHY. Why I do what I do; my job, investments... It all came down to one thing, financial freedom.

With time I got bored with the short dreads and their limited styling options, I wanted long … Continue reading Faux Locs
As part of wanting to feel older and wanting to do things that matter, I had decided to stop reading fiction or, in the least, read less off it.
