In February, the world is excited to celebrate that day that will not be mentioned. All focus is on expressions of love. Will they buy flowers, chocolates, and wine bottles, add money to the bouquets, spa treatment, and gate away? What will the lovers do? And I watched smilingly as the statuses of my WhatsApp contacts showed off the display of affection: some from friends, others by their lovers but my favourite were the memes. I live for them.
In my world, this February although lacking flower bouquets and surprise dinners was/is memorable. I am still elated over major breakthroughs on personal projects I`ve been watering. God has been good to me.
Let`s dive into my February update:
Making: time to work. I always wondered how people can have their CVs and bios full of accomplishments. This year is answering that question.
I am writing more. Read recent articles here, here, here and here.
I attended two art exhibitions: Zadde by Yiga Joshua at Motiv and Faith Half-baked by Matovu Hassan (Her-Sun) at Goethe Zentrum Kampala.
Eating: a combination of things: plantain, cassava, sweet bananas and chocolate chip cookies. I tried cookies without sugar, they are not t for me. I don`t care what health experts say.
Drinking: tea. This is a constant.

Wondering: about my life. Will everything make sense in the end?
Hoping: for a March full of abundance, love, good health and positive vibes.
Marvelling: at how much work goes into achieving the set goals.
Smelling: Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. This scent brightens up my day.
Wearing: my hair in dreadlocks. Pineapple to be precise because this heat is fiery like a scorned woman.
Following: bookstagrammers. This community is thriving. Happy to meet fellow book lovers.
Noticing: that God is faithful in spite of my unfaithfulness and that gives me comfort.
Knowing: that the wait is long and hard but things fall into place eventually. Hang in there.
