Let’s talk time

‘All I wanted was to be stuck in time with you to freeze it while it lasts… But time will not hear any of it… It had to pass…it wanted to remind me that it’s in control… And could I have won a battle against time?’ And with time she started talking in his language….

J’aurais dû être plus gentille

“J’aurais dû être plus gentille”  – I should have been more kind. That is something a person will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old, Ah, I wish I was not good to that person. You will never think that.” ‘I read this once’ she told her friend. ‘I read…

How to create stress on your own 101

1. Sit. Just sit and not move. Don’t do a thing and just keep on stressing about stress. 2. Isolate yourself from human contact. Reminder: this is objective and you have to stress about the fact that humans can also be stressing so, you may contact stressing humans if needed. 3. Sleep. In other words,…

ሳሙናው

የሳሙናው አቀማመጥ አልተዋጠልኝም፡፡ ደጋግሜ ለደቂቃዎች አየሁት፡፡ የቱ ጋር ስህተት እንዳለ ማወቅ ባልችልም ቦታው ግን እዛ ጋር አይደለም፡፡ ከጎኑ የተቀመጡትን ነገሮች አየሁ፡፡ ሁለት የጥርስ ብሩሾች ከሁለት ኮልጌት ጋር ተቀምጠዋል እነሱ ትክክል ናቸው፡፡ ፎጣውስ ፎጣው ልክ እሷ እንደተወችው መሬት ላይ ተቀምጧል፡፡ ታዲያ ሳሙናው ምን ሆኗል ሌላ ሰው ነካው እንዳልል ብቻዬን ነው የምኖረው፡፡ የቤቴ ቁልፍ ያለው ሰው ደግሞ…

You.

I wish I could say we had an extraordinary love, but that would be a lie. We had a relationship other people were jealous of, of course, but it was nothing extraordinary. We never walked without holding each others hand, we always laughed together as if it was our last, we’ve spent nights talking about…

What’s wrong with ‘other girls’?

Have you ever said “እኔ እንደሌሎች ሴቶች አይደለሁም“ or been told ‘አንቺ እንደሌሎች ሴቶች አይደለሽም’? I am guilty of saying it when I was younger: “I just get on better alone”, “I’m not really like other girls” were pretty much my chants. I felt like I had to position myself against the girly stereotype to…

ሌላ ቀን

“ደህና አደርሽ?” ሞቅ ባለ ድምጽ ጠየቀኝ፡፡ ካጎነበስኩበት በፍጥነት ቀና አልኩ፡፡ የምሰራበትን ጠረጴዛ ተደግፎ ወደታች እያያኝ ነው፡፡ ከንፈሮቹን በስሱ ከፈት አድርጎ ፈገግ ብሏል፡፡ ለኔ የሰጠኝ ስሜት ግን ከፈገግታ በላይ ነበር፡፡ ሚቋረጥ በማይመስል የደስታ ጎርፍ ውስጤ ሲጥለቀለቅ ተሰማኝ፡፡ ሳላስብበት መልሼ ፈገግ አልኩለት ለጥያቄው ግን አልመለስኩለትም፡፡ አይኖቻችን በተገናኙ ቁጥር ልቤን፣ ደረቴን ሆዴን አላውቅም ብቻ ያመኛል የስቃይ ህመም ግን…

Smile Zone

There’s something in the way he smiles and laughs at my lame jokes and clumsiness and it’s honestly such poetry, watching him laugh. It’s like the weight of the world is lifted off your shoulders. So I laughed, and he said, “What’s so funny?” And I said, “Nothing, you just make me so happy that…

Unmotivated Post

Why I don’t watch motivational videos, attend motivational events, or nod my head to motivational quotes. *It is understandable if you are not motivated to read this unmotivating post. 1. Motivational stuff does not teach you or tell you how to do this or that, small starts and hard work are not included. They tell…
