So once we have an idea for a story this is not enough, unless we are just writing for a hobby. If we actually one day hope to sell what we are writing we need to ask the hard questions.

There has never been a better time to be alive than now and you have to make the best of it. With the new upon us, we all have plans, dreams and hope we want to see ourselves achieve this year. To accomplish your dreams you will have to work. Wishing and dreaming is not […]


The single greatest challenge you will face in trying to accomplish anything great is FEAR. FEAR is nothing to be underestimated and we need to learn to manage it if we want to succeed. I remember being a kid and Dune was one of my favorite movies. At the age of ten I memorized Paul Atreides’ […]

What Makes A Woman? — What a Witch

This is not a question I thought anyone needed to address, but Facebook this week has shown me how wrong I am. Because wow, there was so much anti-trans bullshit happening among Black people, especially Black women this week. So, to answer the seemingly uncomplicated question with a really simple and straightforward answer… she […]

After the Dumpster Fire of 2016—How to Make 2017 ROCK! — Kristen Lamb’s Blog

We are THANK GOD bringing a close to 2016. Though I’ve survived, I feel like I’ve dragged myself out of a Dumpster fire. Is it me or did 2016 actually last three years? But as Robert H. Schuller once said… Tough times never last but tough people do. Many who read this blog desire to […]

We crave feelings that bring misery, why is that?

We crave interaction and intimacy but it is the very thing that causes tremendous pain. We seek riches and riches and riches but why?

To survive?

No. To be seen?

Maybe. To find a mate?

Maybe.To live an above comfortable life?

Definitely, But why?

Competition is the thing that created and broke civilizations. We’re in constant competition with ourselves and whoever we feel is a threat to our survival or “success” rather. We become so involved and obsessed in obtaining these THINGS that will (because we believe this is guaranteed) make our lives better. We seek the bigger and better to the point that we don’t even bother studying ourselves and the things around us because we’re constantly searching, hustling, taking and doing.

Everyday I have to explain to me peers and parents why I don’t want to turn my music into a career. Well it’s because I might become obsessed with capitalizing my truest form of expression. At least one aspect of my life should be left personal and solely reproductive. I might love what comes from my music more than the music itself. Then my expression becomes a competition which was never the point.

Life is an interesting experience maan, how is your journey?



ORLANDO Pirates dribbling wizard Thabo “Section 10” Qalinge is hoping to get more game-time this season, having recovered from a knee injury.

Qalinge is optimistic that he will make a return to Pirates’ starting lineup when they play Chippa United in an Absa Premiership match at Port Elizabeth’s Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tonight (7.30pm). Chippa have not been able to win a match in their last seven outings.

The 25-year-old midfielder says working hard will be the key to reaching the starting XI


Said Qalinge: “Competition at the club is tough and I don’t want to use injury as an excuse. Injuries are always there.

“This season I am looking forward to playing more games, improving on the past two seasons, where I was not getting enough game-time because of my injuries. When I get the chance I will give my best.”

The Buccaneers registered their third league win of the season in eight outings on Saturday when they defeated Free State Stars 1-0 at Orlando Stadium. It was Augusto Palacios’ second victory since taking over as caretaker coach.

Going into the Chippa game Palacios said they would need to bury their opponents, capitalising on early chances to kill off the game.

“We are improving with every game we play but can still do better. We have capable players.

“Going forward we must put in more hard work up-front. Our wingers are creating a lot of goal-scoring opportunities but we are struggling a bit to convert those chances,” said Palacios.

Beleaguered Chilli Boys will be hoping to make home ground advantage count for them. They defeated Bucs 2-0 at the same venue at the end of last season.
