The freedom!
I have worked in the corporate world before this, doing my 9am to 6 or 7 or 8pm, boxed in a cubicle. The best thing about turning to writing is that I am my own boss. I am free to pursue my passion and interests, creating an identity for myself at the same time. (less)

What Living Through Canadian Winter is Like

When we first came to Canada from the warm climes of West Africa, we had quite a weather shock. My husband landed here in late January, at the peak of a cruel winter. My son and I landed 6 weeks later, while Canada was still experiencing sub-zero temperatures.

None of us had warm jackets, boots, gloves, or caps. We hastened to equip ourselves but still shuddered at the bus stops while waiting to ca

The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Duke certainly made for an atypical hero, but after the initial meeting between Duke and seamstress, the storyline seemed very cliched. If you love a breezy romance, go for it. But if you like something more profound, you can skip the book.

I read 'The Far Pavilions' by MM Kaye' way back in college. It had come strongly recommended by both my parents, a hidden gem that was not easy to find before the age of Kindles and ebooks.

And this year, I decided to re-read the book. The Far Pavilio

Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“If fate doesn't make you laugh, you just don't get the joke.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“The only reason you say that race was not an issue is because you wish it was not. We all wish it was not. But it’s a lie. I came from a country where race was not an issue; I did not think of myself as black and I only became black when I came to America. When you are black in America and you fall in love with a white person, race doesn’t matter when you’re alone together because it’s just you and your love. But the minute you step outside, race matters. But we don’t talk about it. We don’t even tell our white partners the small things that piss us off and the things we wish they understood better, because we’re worried they will say we’re overreacting, or we’re being too sensitive. And we don’t want them to say, Look how far we’ve come, just forty years ago it would have been illegal for us to even be a couple blah blah blah, because you know what we’re thinking when they say that? We’re thinking why the fuck should it ever have been illegal anyway? But we don’t say any of this stuff. We let it pile up inside our heads and when we come to nice liberal dinners like this, we say that race doesn’t matter because that’s what we’re supposed to say, to keep our nice liberal friends comfortable. It’s true. I speak from experience.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah
