Under Construction

Keni last shared their writing I Love You
I have had this conversation about love with many Ethiopian friends. 

Have you ever heard your parents say 'I love you' to each other?
There would be laughter as a response. I don't know 1 person that said that they did. 

Saying I love you isn't done. It feels culturally wrong...

Better

With the help of a ton of sleep and tv, today I feel like I have recovered 90%.

I tested myself for COVID yesterday and seeing the negative result helped boost my energy. My appetite is back as well. I was able to walk and get some chores done. 

I had...

Entertainment

As I try to recover from a common cold, I started to watch a new season of Survivor. The most successful reality tv show. 

For whatever reason, I get addicted to the show when I start to watch it. There is something about the physical challenges, mental challenges and of...

Car Insurance

Today I changed my car insurance company. I was being ripped off by the company I had before. For whatever reason, I never bothered to shop around. After many years of paying a lot for car insurance, I finally made the switch today. 

The cost was much smaller for exactly...

Yesterday my throat started to itch...runny nose arrived by end of day. And I struggled to fall asleep.

Moving Back

Today, I got back in my place. For the last month and a half, I have been a nomad of sorts. Different members of my family were traveling and I was the floater moving about to fill gaps where needed. As an unemployed member of society, I had certain responsibilities...

400

Apparently, I have been writing for 400 days straight. That is more than a whole year. It was about a year ago that my health took a nose dive so writing daily wasn't an easy task when I restarted my streak. 

But here I am... Day 400 and I am still...

Good Decisions

About 7 days ago, I moved in with my sister for 10 days. 
It is an interesting experience to see how my sister does everything. She is a no nonsense type A personality.

After seeing how I am with my sugars, she started to ask me a bunch of questions. Over...

May 17 + 1 as reply to may 17

She started at the wall. That's where she had placed her calendar. Every month, she would place a printout of the month and would scratch of the day at about 10pm exactly. The goal is to be deliberate about each day. 

But yesterday, she ripped it off the wall. The...
