Holes is a movie about a young boy that is sent to a juvenile detention camp called Green Lake. Ironically, it is a dried up lake and it hasn’t rained in years. The boys there have to do extensive labour the whole day while the sun is beating down on them. Let’s say one day, a scatter of clouds are seen in the sky and these clouds start to appear everyday but it is still hot. The boys are always anticipating the much needed rain but it never comes. This continues for months on end. The optimists says “at least there are clouds now and that could lead to rain.”. The pessimists says “but what’s the point of the clouds if there won’t be any rain?”. The thin line between irresponsible hopefulness and practical realism.

“At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon, and my ambition has been growing steadily ever since” this is a quote by Salvador Dali. This, for me, sums up the definition of ambition and determination – definitely what us, the youth, should be aiming for. I have come across a certain quote numerous times saying “if you’re waiting for the right moment, then you will be waiting forever” – many young people now are always waiting for the right opportunity instead of creating one. We rely on education and qualifications to get through in life but one should always be building themselves, creating their own opportunities and doing more of what is required of them.

Valentine's Day Cancelled

Wanted: Cupid's head on a silver platter, to be delivered before 14th February. I will pay a good price to someone who captures that fat little midget with no dress sense, floating around the air wearing nothing but a nappy and shooting people with your nasty-ass arrows. This year I am on a mission, just like that lil' cupid is, only I intend to catch him before he spreads that virus called love. How dare he miss me each year? Oh well, this year ain't nobody gonna get none of that virus if I have it my way, I am ending that madness myself.

Who needs TV? I watch it all on Twitter

A few months ago abo Nyaope boys stole our television set leaving us without a Telly practically forever. If I want to watch anything like Isibaya I ask my mom to record it and I watch later. Sad ne? Anyway I'm so over that, who needs Tv when everything is literally a click away? Social media has fast become the first go to and definitely the new morning coffee. Before we even recite our morning prayers, our phones are blinding us in bed, tempting us to find out the latest events and news. If umakhelwane dies suddenly and you were yet to find out, no need to jump the fence.

“I think sports gave me the first place where this awkward girl could feel comfortable in my own skin. I think that’s true for a lot of women- sports gives you a part of your life where you can work at something and you look in the mirror and you like that person” – Teri McKeever

In the 20th century, female participation in sports rose dramatically even though the level of participation and performance varies by country and sport but it is a well-known fact that sportsmen dominate media realm and earn more than their female counter part, who struggle to get coverage and sponsorship. Women in sports also need to be recognized and celebrated.
