Happy New Year everyone!!! I know, I'm giving myself the side-eye as well while writing this post, but I have been living this blog post for the past 1 1/2 months. Now that I have passed through it, I can write it, citing my experience as examples. Since the beginning of Operation Restore Legacy, the… Continue reading The Introvert’s Holiday Survival Guide
My favourite photographer is my sister. I love her and I am proud of her. Check out some of her work below, and you can follow her on Instagram: @t3riruskie. Until next time... your Quarter Wife.
Whenever I hear the word, "toxic", Britney Spears' song Toxic comes to mind. Today's topic got me listening to the song again. It's a bit corny, but the beat is catchy, and remains one of my favourite songs from my university days. A few lyrics caught my attention and I realised they were highlighting signs… Continue reading Day 29: You’re Toxic, I’m Slipping Under
Cohabitation is called kuchaya mapoto in Shona... which I translated literally to get the title for my post. Cohabitation has become normalised in the media, with it being a seemingly necessary step to the relationship, before or replacing marriage. Very soon we'll hear of move-in proposals and the like, and the industry will make loads… Continue reading Day 28: Beating the Pots
Marriage is an adventure on its own, meshing two people with different experience into one flesh. It's a whole different ball game from dating, when you can pretend you're perfect. Marriage is the entire human being, flaws and all, all in your space, and getting to navigate two personalities into becoming a cohesive unit. In… Continue reading Day 27: Dating While Parenting
It does not matter really whether I'm a feminist, womanist, or whatever -ist there is until we as women can tackle this one thing: why do women dislike each other so much??? Makaitah wrote about this subject so beautifully in a post of hers, and it hit a nerve. It is so true. Women are so… Continue reading Day 25: Am I Feminist or Womanist? It Doesn’t Matter to Me.
I can say I'm pretty proud of myself when it comes to travelling around Zimbabwe. I've been to Victoria Falls (even went boating), Great Zimbabwe (my sister had her chicken stolen by a baboon... true story), Matopos and Nyanga. I've been to the Snake Park, Lion and Cheetah Park, Antelope park, and spent 30 seconds… Continue reading Day 20: Three African Destinations I Want to Visit
Today, I'm going to tell you a story. Whether the story is true or not does not really matter, what matters is that we all somehow relate to it. A man has three sons. Handsome boys, the usual tall dark and handsome, eligible bachelors. They are gentlemen, well-spoken, the pride of their father. This man… Continue reading Choosing Your Career Path in an African Home
Why did I join the #30DayAfriBlogger Challenge? I love to write. Writing is cathartic to me, it lets me let out what I tend to internalise. I have a hard time vocalising my emotions, and the best way to do that for me is to write down the feelings. Maybe it's a product of liking… Continue reading Day 15: I Love to Write
In an earlier post, I told you about how I'm a doctor. Now, I love my job, it's real fun seeing people from all walks of life, and I love having to put symptoms together to come up with a diagnosis. It's a life-long Sherlock Holmes episode. It's great. When I am done at work,… Continue reading Day 13: The One Thing Everyone Asks me
