Country life

I came across something that I totally love and relate to. I thought I should post it for anyone who might feel the same way.

"I spoke of country life as a kind of reality that I can understand and respond to. There is no pretense in a wood pile or a brook. I know what they are, what they were yesterday and what they will be tomorrow and living with them I have come to know myself rather well. I do not have to pretend i am anything other than myself. That I believe leads to integrity; certainly it tends in that direction." Hal Borland- Living in the country

Domestic Violence

My workmate is a caveman and bigot! He says that sometimes women need to be 'disciplined' (WHAT!!!???) and that sometimes women invite a beating. He can't see how an African woman can live with a man without having been 'disciplined' we're having this never ending arguement about domestic violence. I'm feeling like I can explode yet I have three facts at the back of my mind:
>It's his opinion, I don't have to like it.
>I need to keep my composure
>We live in an unjust world, its the way the system works...justice will be in heaven
So it makes it easier to let this ridiculous issue go...and I do.

Internship and stuff

Hi all! I'm back after..(how many months?) awhile, and currently interning at NHIF. A parastatal in Nairobi and I'm getting bored because there's no work around here but I'm getting by. I work with alright people...except this one person..but that's a story for another day.
Meanwhile, I'm here wondering about my future, how will my life go? Will he marry me? When? Do I even want to get married? What's my story going to be like in the next 5 years?
I wonder how the Australia plan will go...I would want to experience that with him..

Living life!

Well..this is my first blog so I don't exactly know what to say. I think I'll just type what's on my mind and edit it later when I'm an experienced blogger and I look back and wonder what on earth I was typing!
This is my final semester in campus. I'm excited. I thought I was glad to finally be over with the long nights and boring afternoon classes. But I think I'm freaking out just a tad. I know everyone gets by somehow and things always fall into place BUT...It's a tough time to be me and to be unemployed...I am a christian. But my relationship with God has not exactly been rosy..infact right now we're (God and I) not in speaking terms. It's mostly my fault but I'm not really doing anything to fix it. I think I want to just be here for a while to sort of figure out things. As absurd as that sounds.
Anyway..if there's anyone out there, who's having abit of a rough time getting life to steady always here to listen and to share my experiences with you.
More about me soon...Bye!
