  One day, while in my final year of secondary school, my friends and I were chatting and somehow the conversation led us to share some of the ‘bad’ experiences we’d had with guys. When Ada was in elementary school, an ‘uncle’ in the compound where she lived had attempted to get her into his […]

Another Year Has Come

For a fact, 2015 is gone forever. It can not be bought, begged, coerced, threatened or ordered to come back (not by mere mortals anyway and frankly I can’t think of any reason why a “higher power” would bring it back, assuming the possibility even exists).
