A snippet from one of the stories I am writing

Hey, Tomodachi’s!

Good day to you all near and far. I hope you are having a great day!

For this week’s blog post, I wanted to post a snippet from one of the three novels I am trying to write called The Forlorn One. About a little over three years ago I posted the first snippet from this story and since then never posted anything else again after that. I believe around that time was also the last time I wrote anything for this story because I was experiencing writer’s block for the longest time. So, after a while, I decided to stop and gave myself a break from writing. And as you can see a lot of time has passed by. Therefore, I am thinking of starting back up again after not writing any stories for such a long. Enough is enough, don’t you think? I feel a little embarrassed that it took me this long to get back to writing. But whatever… The most important thing is that I am starting back again.

Anyway, below is another snippet of my novel and I hope you enjoy reading it. And of course, please let me know your thoughts. Take care and have a great day.

My spoken word performance on Sunday

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Below is the poetry performance I spoke of on Sunday. I read 4 poems that night but below in the video I read only two poems, ‘Wounded’ and ‘Unapologetically black’. At a later time, I will blog about my experience of the night and it is most likely my last performance in the Netherlands. Continue reading

Unapologetically Black

Hey, Hey, Hey Tomodachi’s!

It feels like it has almost been forever since the last time I wrote anything on my blog. I hope you can forgive me for pulling another one of my disappearing acts on you all. I have missed blogging after not blogging for the past three months.

If you follow my Instagram and other social media pages I recently posted on my Instagram page explaining the reasons for my disappear and how I would be back, out and about on my social media pages and blog. And here I am! With a new poem! Continue reading

My one year anniversary at my massage job

Hello Tomodachi’s,

I had fallen from the face of the earth and have reappeared once again! I hope you all did not miss me too much.

Just as the title suggests, I wanted to tell you all about how on May 20th I made one year working at my current [massage] job. Therefore, this blog post was written only to briefly congratulate myself and give myself a tap on the back for staying at my current job for so long.

Are you wondering why I am congratulating myself for something that most of you might consider so normal? Well, that is because this is the first time in my ‘adult’ life that I have ever worked for anyone for so long. Are you shocked? Yeah, me too!

Please let me explain. I am the type of person who gets bored with things very quickly. In order for something to hold my interest for a long time I need it to be interesting, competitive and compelling, thrilling and something I can always learn from and lose myself into.

Though I have done quite a number of jobs, I could not find a job that could hold my interest for long and so I would end up quitting these jobs in 6 months or less. Actually very few jobs have I worked for 6 months.

However, my massaging job gives me a sort of satisfaction I have never felt before. Though the company I work for leaves a lot to be desire, the massaging job itself makes me happy. Despite me always complaining about how much back and body pains I now have thanks to this job, this is so far the only job I can see myself doing for a long time. I think I have finally found my calling!

So, I am grateful I am able to find a job that I very much enjoy doing. Even though it may not be in the field that I have studied for but oh well…

Have you, dear readers, already found your dream job?
