The Africa they don’t show you series (Owambe edition)

Hi everyone! Welcome to Hazy fantasies, thanks for stopping by! Today, I’m starting something new. As the countdown to 2017 begins, I would like all of us, who are global citizens of the world, to walk into the new year less ignorant about the diverse world we share. This post is not to make anyone feel bad I promise. I’ve been studying in America for a while, and I’ve heard some really ignorant comments about Africa (So you guys wear clothes? Do you like live in huts and stuff?). These are comments that have been inspired by the overly bias media, I understand, but the world is becoming too global for anyone to be ignorant about other places around the world. To address this issue, I decided to write a couple of posts showing you the beautiful continent, where I’m from.

Hi Everyone! Happy new week once again. It’s slowly getting close to the conclusion of summer and  I bet no one wants the clock to stop ticking as much as I do. Today, I wanted to do something different. This post is going to be me reading your thoughts rather than you reading mine. I was having a conversation with my friends some days ago and this question popped up; “Why do we do what we do?” Why do we follow motivational accounts on social media, read our bibles, read blogs, seek advise from family and friends, listen to motivational speakers and get inspired only to end up doing what we please at the end of the day.  Continue reading “Let’s chat series!”
