The past 3 weeks has been great – the Blogging 101 course I signed up for finally ended. In that time, I’ve updated my blog – changed my tag line, my theme, font – my blog basically got a makeover! 😀

I also have the pleasure of helping out with a new WordPress community (The Bloggers Meetup) – thanks to some of the amazing people I met on the course. If you’re looking for an avenue to meet more bloggers and share your work, you should check it out.

A couple of my new friends Ioana of Music Teacher Lifestyle and Owl Dragonash nominated  me for an award. Thanks guys!!! I’ve never considered myself a versatile blogger and I’m quite chuffed they nominated me. Peep my badge below 🙂


Apparently, there are also rules I have to follow for being nominated. Not only am I supposed to share 7 facts about me, I am also supposed to nominate 10 other bloggers for the award to continue the cycle… Spread the love 🙂

I am all about there being equal opportunities for women
In education
I want there to be a world
That protects girls, women
From all sorts of violence
A world where there is no gender bias

Pro choice
Yup, I believe in legalised abortion (and everything about the pro choice movement)
My body, my rights!
I even wrote a post about it (read here)

Introvert (some of my friends may disagree)
Truth is I’d rather be pre occupied with my thoughts
Than be with people sometimes
It takes a while for me to warm up to people
But when I do… the rest is history

Strong willed
I will pretty much do what I want
Once I set my mind to it


“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.

– Bruce Lee”

I talk to myself
More than I care to admit
I promise I’m not crazy
Talking to myself helps me
…it helps me bring my thoughts to life
Makes everything seem clearer

Lover of dance
Dance is my cardio
I binge watch dance shows
In fact a small part of me
Believes that in an alternate universe
I am a professional dancer 😀

I love poetry
I know it sounds cliche
But it is a fact about me 😉
Even spoken word!!!
I love them all
Poetry is an art form
An expressive one
It is an outlet
It is a medicine
It is me!

Thank you again Ioana and Owl Dragonash for the nomination.
