Me, I'm tempted to leave the job I have not yet started!😂 So, two days after I got the teaching job. I got… Continue reading The Universe is Playing with Me!

I remember an exam I had once written back then in school. It was the toughest! In the end, I packed my things up and made for the front of the lecture theatre where I submitted my answer booklet. I walked out. It was hot but I felt a cold shiver travel through me. I… Continue reading Throwback: The Toughest Exam I Ever Wrote!
This is coming from a bad place, a place everyone ever hardly wants to go. I'm trying as much as possible to be clear here.
