Life & Stories


The year is coming to an end. It has been one long year. Just as long as the other’s but now filled with many blessings. It has felt like a full-stock cupboard for me. It started slow but gained momentum as fast with many good surprises. Finally a year free from covid.

I’ve run the most this year. Doing between 30-35 km for more than 7 months. With other indoor workouts. Completed several projects successfully from the Miti Mingi dip to the Jualako hotel, carwash, and butchery, and now currently doing one at Emali. I’ve also written a few blog posts every month, which is a good effort from the side. Although I noticed many of my stories have changed, many are personal. But I hope they all feel right to you.

I did most of my thesis this year. It was challenging, especially in data collection and analysis of that data. I did my defense and graduated this past October. It felt good. I also became a dad this year. This was a huge blessing too. Now working a new job with a very nice title. I am so grateful for it and plan to give it my best.

I’ve also had my disappointments this year despite the blessings. I’ve attended several burials of close relatives and friends; from my grandpa’s passing to Njore’s father and Ngare’s dad. Now my grandma has passed on, this December 21st. I’ve had several days where I struggled with a lack of finances and broken dreams, but I’m still here.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus. I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Filled with blessings, peace, and joy. May the day be cheerful. Filled with gratitude and plenty for all. It’s a season when most people travel, wishing everyone safe travels and a blessed boxing day to follow. Happy holiday to everyone, and thank you for reading my posts throughout the year. Blessings

      1. Oh lovely, yes thank you, I had a wonderful Christmas too. Cold and rainy, nice and cosy.
        Well I hope we find urgent and long lasting solutions to the energy supply situation. Everyday it is touch and go.
        It’s unbelievable how man has forced us into this dire situation.
        The stories I’ve heard in regard to supplies are chilling.
        The whole rainbow is to blame.

        But thank you for the sentiments πŸ™πŸΌ
