Spell Check

Dear Africana Woman,


Confession. On the previous posts I have not been doing a spell check. I am sooooo sorry. I have been really tired by the time I do these posts and I don’t get to go through them thoroughly. Usually I comb through with a fine-tooth comb. However, I have been really trying to make sure I get these out before the end of the day. That really says something about my time management and priorities. It should probably move up the scale in the time of day that I write so as I get to do due diligence to the editing.


I am one of those people who has a finite amount of energy for the day. I used to think that I was making it up in my mind, but when I realised it’s an actual thing it really released me. Basically, because I only have so much energy I tend to be very deliberate about how I expel it. Usually before a meeting or a major activity I give myself about an hour before to take a nap or just lie in bed to recharge. Therefore, you can imagine when I get to the end of the day, I am totally depleted. If you also know me intimately you know my body shuts down. It doesn’t matter where I am. Sitting at a dining table, on the sofa, on the toilet … gurl come 9pm my eyes close and its lights out. I am done for the day. Well that’s if I don’t have insomnia and I wake up 3 hours later. All this to say I should know better and I need to schedule my writing to an earlier time of the day. I actually do my best work in the wee hours of the morning.


BUT… I am not a morning person even though I wake up really early. This is because I am not ready to see people until after 12pm. I know it’s strange. First of all, I wake up looking like Po but by noon I have miraculously transformed into Tigress. Morning is my exclusive time. Okay let’s actually talk about something concrete today. In the same breath I promise to do better. Plus, I am loving all the feedback and interaction that I have been seeing. In fact, it’s great that you can call me out when I am slacking. Thank you.


Mmmmmm …. Yup I am blank I cannot come up with anything profound to talk about today. It has also been quite an uneventful day. Hmmm which then makes me think about where do I draw inspiration from when there does not seem to be much around me. Hmmm. They say write about what you know neh. I worry about that because I have always been a bit of a recluse who may not be seeing enough of the world to be inspired, you know. I think that’s why I enjoy podcasting so much. I mea
