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..
