Tasha Cobbs ft Nicki Minaj: A Critical View on Why Spirits Should Not Mix

"Spirits don't mix" - Tasha Cobbs ft Nicki Minaj If you drink, read that again. Lol. The best advice my dad ever gave me was "spirits don't mix". He was referring to both the physical spirits and the " spiritual" Spirits. I wonder why great men - even Jesus (on earth) used the wine illustration. Remember "you don't put old wine in new skins..."? My dad was qualified for that statement. He was known as a heavy drinker and a…

“The End Game” – 7 Things I Learnt from my Microsoft Internship Experience

The End Game In the game of chess, players are most often known by two things: One, their opening move - that is, how they start a game, and their ending move(s) - otherwise called the end game.

8 Ways to End Up in the FRIEND ZONE for Guys in 2017

The often-skipped and avoided topic - the friend zone. Many times skipping the topic is as a result of bruised egos and untrue fantasies. The question remains more often than not "why do some guys (especially the 'good' guys) end up being friendzoned?".  First of all, before I list out what makes a guy friendzoned, I have to make work on certain assumptions: Assumption: I am referring to LADIES, with a capital "L", NOT "slay queens", or "k-legged-picture-snapping", or "duck-faced pouting-lipped, adventure-seeking" girls.…

4 Lessons Anyone can Learn from Real Madrid’s 2017 CL Victory

One of the worst feelings ever is waiting for something you can hardly wait for. The anxiety, the pent up expectation, the nostalgia, combine each of this 'ingredients' as it were, into a capsule; swallow it, the resultant effect begins to do justice to the kind of feeling I am talking about. For football fans and fanatics alike, it was if a superpower should be granted one and all - to fast forward the apparently sluggishly-moving time, so as to watch one…

Is it Right to “Debate” on Issues of the Bible?

This question has been on my mind right from my University days. From home to Church to school, I have always been met by advisers who said, "Hey, this is the Bible, don't debate on it, whenever I attempted probing them about my thoughts. Well, the book of Proverbs (Proverbs 24:6) said in the multitude of advisers there is safety, but I wasn't safe; for I was surrounded dangerously by questions that squeezed my thoughts. As I pondered on this,…

Why the Journey is more important than the Destination

Let your joy be in your journey - not in some distant goal. - Tim Cook The sirens from the flower-decked convoy of wedding revelers blared as the excitement in the air contagiously affected one and all. It was a massively anticipated ceremony. The bride, ever gorgeous - both in gait and poise smiled shyly as she came down from her customized car. This wasn't the usual wedding. This was the gathering of the high and mighty - individuals with…
