My first time

The class was over and for the very first time, in my entire existence, I wanted to have some ‘one on one’ with the Guest Speaker. Now this is someone I’ve looked up to since  I rediscovered my love for writing. And so, with one of the strongest colds I’ve ever had to carry around,

The Big Move

Waking up alone in a foreign environment is wierd AF…it takes a second for my mind to readjust and after that, there’s always this pit feeling I’m left with that sucks balls but I’m learning how to get past it. It’s the second day and all I want to do is go back home. I

I still can’t figure out social media…aaaarrgghh!!!!…Kicking and screaming!  Maybe I’m not cool enough for the social media fam…Or maybe I’m just not from this century…I’m really leaning towards the second opinion because it truly feels like I don’t belong. Those are some of the conspiracy theories that have been cooked up by my brain

Win or Learn

Failure is never the end…it’s just the beginning of something great if you let it be.. The past year for me has taught me a couple of things and the most important one I must say, is the value of failure. Running Marykenyablog and other hustles has taught me to respect failure because of the
