5 non-negotiables of a 30-year-old

So, finally, 30 happened to me! Raise your glass to all the 87 borns out here! We’ve come far! In the coming weeks that led to my birthday on June 12th, I was ready to turn up and act the fool one last time to close out on the 20’s but it turned out to be a solemn one.

FICTION: Chapter 11- Babs

Babs wasn’t afraid on the first day at her job at the film company. If anything, she felt the excitement. She wasn’t afraid ten years ago, when Kay told her she was going to abort her baby, so she could go back to school. When she had to sit in the hospital lobby and wait out the procedure.

My friend told me the funniest story. She called a friend to tell her about her wedding plans. Before she could get it into it, after pleasantries was exchanged, her friend chipped in “madam, I hope you are not about to tell me you are getting married?” According to my friend, the other person on the phone sounded scared actually. Like she could not contain on more call if it was about a wedding.

Without Secrets

I won't tell a man everything about me in a relationship. Nope. Yes I am literally shaking my head with my eyes closed. Meaning I don't believe you can change my mind. Before you jump at me with questions of trust and transparency in the success of a relationship  I believe it is for the very success of the relationship that I will shut my mouth about certain aspects of my life. Oh yes indeed.Why?
