Day 25. Four weird traits I have

We are all weird in our own way. Weirdness make us unique. Some of my weird characteristics include:

  1. I can stay indoors for a very long time without getting out.Yes, I love being alone and I enjoy my space. I can be in the house and close myself inside that one could think am not around yet am just inside doing my own things. If I have books to read, then that could be more interesting as I can even go for a whole week without stepping outside.
  2. I feel guilty easily even when I haven’t done a mistake. I don’t know about you but am always guilty whenever someone commits a crime around me. I always feel terrified you could think I am the one in the wrong. I wonder why I always feel that way.
  3. I hate taking medicine. This is a very serious one. My hate for medicine started way too early. I rather get those needles on me than be given medicine. If I am seriously ill, I tend to take the tablets as soon as I get them but after a few days I put them aside and leave them for good. I’ve never completed a full dosage unless it has 3 tablets. More than that is a NO. I can’t just help it especially those large tablets, very scary .
  4. Insomniac . I can’t just get to bed early like a normal human being. The earliest I can retire to bed is at midnight. There are times I used to stay for a whole night without blinking an eye only to start sleeping at 6:00 Am. I wonder what was wrong with me at that time.

What are some of your weird traits?

Day 24. Something I Miss .

I love swimming a lot. Despite staying near the beach I still don’t find time to go swim. Every other day I plan on going swimming, something always come up and the current temperatures in Mombasa are hard to cope with. May be I still don’t have the same enthusiasm that I had for swimming sometimes back.

I don’t find it exciting because am used to swimming with people close to me. Now that they aren’t around I find it very difficult to go alone.

Swimming is therapeutic you know.

It’s like you are washing all the sorrows away,

washing all the bad energy away.

All the bitter and sad moments are also washed and carried away by the waves.

It’s like swimming with a purpose. You leave everything that makes your heart heavy in the water. All the gloom, heavy heart just washed away like that and you remain as light as a feather. You come out as a new person, with a new energy, more happiness and feeling refreshed.

I am going swimming soon. It’s been long.

Day 23. A Family member I dislike.

Family is an important aspect in our lives. Sometimes family members can get in your nerves so much and you get angry at them but still at the end of the day blood is thicker than water. So we just have to deal with them.

For this one, NO, I just love them whether they like it or not. I might need their help in future so I can never hate them. I might be angry for a while but still talk to to them. You never know what the future holds.There is no family member I dislike.

Day 22. My Morning Routine.

My morning starts at 5:30 Am when the alarm calls. I switch it off then wake up. I don’t literally get out of bed though, I stay awake checking through my phone for any email, message or anything that needs quick feedback / attention. I pick a book am currently reading and read through a little bit to brainstorm.

After doing all that I make my bed neatly brush my teeth and start preparing breakfast. If there is much time left , I do some stretches and sit-ups . I then do the utensils, clean the house then take a shower .

When everything is set I prepare for work then take my breakfast quickly . Most of the time I skip it until 10:00 Am , but on serious days when I have to leave the house early I take breakfast at 7:00 Am. I then pray for a successful day ahead, thank God for waking me up in good health, thank him for giving me another day and basically commit everything into His Able hands then leave for work by 7:30 Am.

Day 21. My Zodiac/Horoscope and whether I think it fits me.

My horoscope is LIBRA. Yes I was born in October 18th. Libra falls between September 23 -October 22.

The traits it has are as follows;

Strengths: Cooperative,diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded, social

Weaknesses: Indecisive, avoids confrontations, will carry a grudge, self-pity

Libra likes: Harmony, gentleness, sharing with others, the outdoors

Libra dislikes: Violence, injustice, loudmouths, conformity

People born under the sign of Libra are peaceful, fair, and they hate being alone. Partnership is very important for them, as their mirror and someone giving them the ability to be the mirror themselves. These individuals are fascinated by balance and symmetry, they are in a constant chase for justice and equality, realizing through life that the only thing that should be truly important to themselves in their own inner core of personality. This is someone ready to do nearly anything to avoid conflict, keeping the peace whenever possible.

The sign of Libra is an Air sign . They have strong intellect and a keen mind. They will be inspired by good books, insurmountable discussions and people who have a lot to say. Each Libra representative has to be careful when talking to other people, for when they are forced to decide about something that is coming their way, or to choose sides, they suddenly realize that they might be in the wrong place and surrounded by wrong people. No partner should make them forget that they have their own opinion.

It fits me well well.

Day 20. The first three songs that play in my music list .

Well, my phone is always my everything and now that I don’t have it let me just give you my random playlist.

I mostly listen to uplifting songs especially Gospel that preach to me.

Paul Clement: Jina la Yesu

This simply means the name of Jesus . The song praises the name of Jesus that there is no other name like His in Earth and even in Heaven. It’s a deep and inspiring worship song. Besides, this worshiper also have some of the best Swahili worship songs. You can check them on YouTube.

You made away by Travis Greene

This explains itself that we are here only because God made a way for us. I love his songs because they speak to the heart.

Umejua kunifurahisha by Joel Lwaga

This translates to ”you know how to make me happy”. Basically the song is praising God of his nature of knowing how to make us happy as individuals. He wipes my tears so I will praise him to eternity.

Day 19. Five Fears that I have

There are things I tend to be afraid of. Even hearing the name scares the hell out of me. They include;

Tokeo la picha la fear
  1. Nyctophobia/Fear of Darkness. I am so afraid of darkness that I always sleep with lights on and am very much comfortable with it. In cases where I am not alone and I sleep where other people are, I am always the last to sleep as I survey my surrounding. I check for every space one can escape from in case of danger. The reason is because as a teenager I experienced robbery at night in our house alone with my siblings and mum. It was a terrifying moment that I never want a repeat of the same. When I go back to the village and night finds me on the way, I always fear the unknown. In fact I don’t even walk properly as I will be checking everywhere as I walk , in front of me, behind me, sideways and my heart beats faster than usual. I just fear darkness.
  2. Thanatophobia/ Fear of Death. oh ! man! I fear death seriously. I know very well that we all have to die someday but still I cant even discuss death in a normal way. Whenever I get news that someone I know has passed on, the shivers it brings on me are outrageous. It eats me up, dries my skin to the last bit and leaves me restless for a very long time.
  3. Gephyrophobi/Fear of Bridges. I rather pass a bridge by a vehicle or something of the sort but not on foot. It takes me time to get used to crossing a bridge. Even crossing the smallest bridge scares me like the ones in my village, people just put a log there and expects you to cross over seeing the river flowing. My goodness! I once went back to where I came from after finding a big log on the river acting as a bridge. The fear came in as a result of a bad experience. As a little girl, I went to visit my aunt who had twin babies and lived near a lake. I had never passed through the nearby bridge on foot. I always did using a motorbike or a vehicle. So onetime, the kids get sick and she tells me to take her to the hospital . The hospital was just 10 minutes away so we decided to go on foot one baby with her, another with me. When we reached the bridge, a bus was passing by with full speed , it shook the bridge so hard that for a moment I thought I had drowned with the baby, I stood still as my mind reflected on what had happened. I was shaking all over my body and my aunt had to take a taxi to and from the hospital. From that day she didn’t allow me to walk over that bridge again and to date I still see myself in that bridge holding on to the baby tightly in my hands.
  4. Acrophobia/Fear of Heights. I can’t risk my life falling from the highest end. No way. I love it when I watch them in movies, people jumping from a high distance and getting to their destination but I can’t risk it at all even if I were capable. I even fear swinging in merry go round. In fact I close my eyes to avoid seeing how far I am from the ground.
  5. Philophobia/ Fear of Love. If you’ve been reading my blog since I started the challenge, then you are aware of my fear of love and affection. I am scared of falling in love because I don’t want commitments. I fear emotions. Emotions carry you away and sometimes you cant think straight when you are in love. You don’t listen to the obvious you just think of your love and that’s it, nothing else.

What are you afraid of?

What are you doing?

Let me do something else that is different from the challenge. I know you are somewhere right now doing something. What are you doing?

What is keeping you busy now as you read this piece ? at this time? this moment?

Are you working?

writing ?




studying or


What are you doing? You may wonder the reason behind asking such an obvious question. We are in different worlds but we talk here as family. You could be doing something different in another world but I get motivated by it. One could be writing or reading and the other could be doing a whole different thing but at the end of the day we still meet our goals for the day.

I believe each day you wake up you have the goals you’ve set ahead of you for the whole day , and whenever you fulfill them completely you get satisfied . Are you trying to accomplish those goals or you are doing the opposite of what you had set?

Is whatever you are doing right now beneficial to you?

Let’s engage?

Day 18. My favorite color and why.

I’ve always loved white since I was young. Most of my clothes and shoes are either plain white or have a white element in them. When I became a teenager, I went to stay with my aunt and her love for blue mesmerized me . If she decides that it’s a blue week then you’ll just have to bear with her. Everything will be blue from bedroom to sitting room. Talk of seat covers, bed sheets, duvets and curtains, all will be blue.

I used to hate it so much but with time I found it interesting so I changed my mind and ever since I’ve been a fan of blue color. Anything with a blue touch captivates my heart and I love it instantly . So yeah, blue it is and a tinge of white.

Day 17. A Quote I try to live by.

Hello guys, it’s been a while since I last posted and especially on my blog challenge. I lost my phone !!! It’s been very hard to continue with my updates because I always use my phone to do so, that’s why I’ve been away for a while but don’t worry i’ll update them as fast as I can and I must finish the challenge with or without the phone.

Wish me luck .

Everyone has that quote they live by and of course I can’t miss one . I have several of them but there is one I like most by SHAKESPEARE as it speaks for all.

It says;

I always feel happy. You know why?

Because I don’t expect anything from anyone.

Expectations always hurt.

Life is short.

So love your life.

Be happy, and keep smiling. Just live for yourself and :

Before you speak, listen.

Before you write, think.

Before you spend, earn .

Before you pray forgive.

Before you hate, love .

Before you hurt, feel.

Before you quit ,try.

Before you die, live.
