The below are my all time favourite quotes from The Matrix and Avengers: Rise of Ultron (In no particular order) 1 "We can never see past the choices we don’t understand” The Oracle #Matrix 2 Neo: Are there other programs like you? Oracle: Oh, well, not like me. But... Look, see those birds? At some point a program was written to govern them. A program was...
By Tiro Makhudu It is when death is without that we most are and only when we're without that death is. There is therefore no rationality in the fear of death for in death we find certainty and and in its absence, our innate tendency to break. It is in our grandeur that we're most insignificant for in the in between is...
Today my Facebook status read as per below: I felt moved by President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the nation address. This marks the first time that myself and many other South Africans including the mighty and fierce Economic Freedom Fighters have actually sat down and really listened in while the address was being given. It Could be that we are...
WISE RULES TO LIVE BY AS WE SOLDIER ON WITH THIS 'ADULTING' THING 1. Be patient. No matter what. 2. Don’t badmouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldn’t say to him. 3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you. 4. Expand your sense of the possible. 5. Don’t trouble yourself with...
“Hello to all at home” Sjava heir to Jama, my name is that of men I come from the bottom where you can die for nothing Where men who are 35 are considered old Where I come from, if you come from there they say you can’t make it I’m surprised that I’m here (that I made it) They thought I’ll disappear into air, they...
Dear Capitec First I just want to thank you for the Gold card and good service I've been getting thus far. I know you are currently facing a storm and thanks for assuring me my money is safe with you, let me highlight that my writing of this is not fueled/motivated by the recent media releases concerning Capitec and the wild...
INTELLECTUAL BLESSER DEFINED: /ˌɪntəlˈektjuəl/ _  /ˈblessah/ An Intellectual Blesser, which is very much a divergent term from the frequently used word 'Blesser' in South Africa (which refers to a sugar daddy or one who lavishes gifts on a younger woman {Blessee} in return for her company or sexual favours). An Intellectual Blesser by definition refers to either a male or a female...
By Johan Fourie Thousands of students will arrive at campuses across South Africa in the next few weeks. It’s an exciting time for most: out of reach of over-protective parents and the disciplines of high school, the lure of freedom can be an academic and social nirvana. But it is also a time when tough decisions with telling consequences must be...
- We cannot subject the macrostability of the financial market to a group of unknown sangomas. - I have been with capitec for over a decade and I have been with 2 of the big banks as well. Will choose capitec even on my 3rd lifetime. I took a loan with them when I was still young and couldn't pay it off, I ran...
Step 1: Manage your energy, not your time. If you take a moment to think about it, you’ll probably realize that you are better at doing certain tasks at certain times. What type of energy do you have in the morning? Afternoon? Evening? Determine what tasks each energy level and time of day are best suited for. Step 2: Prepare the night before. If you only...
By RALPH MATHEKGA A couple of weeks ago I made two trips to Cape Town in which I became familiar with the looming water crisis in the city. While in the Mother City, I got to chat to a few people who reflected on how the water crisis was affecting them. The situation is indeed dire, and the City's ability to manage...
By Bud YZa Many political experts think the ANC should worry about losing power in the 2019 elections. That may be so, but I believe the DA should be equally concerned about losing the Western Cape and Cape Town in the same elections. I am tired of Maimane, Zille, De Lille and others variously blaming the national government and the people of...

‘White Lies’

By Tiro Makhudu It is tiring especially here in Africa where whites claim they found us in skins and without invention or innovation to better us and for which we should, at least in the view of our self-proclaimed messiah figures, be eternally grateful. It is equally tiring to hear Africans use developments in Egypt and Timbuktu as a defense as if...
By Justin Lehmiller What counts as cheating? It’s a question best answered by you and your partner, as you decide together what your rules and boundaries are. Monogamous, monogamish, polyamorous — there are many ways to be happily committed. There are also, it seems, many ways to cheat. Last week, my Twitter feed was flooded with articles on so-called “micro-cheating,” minor activities that stop...

Dying Day…

By Jesse Nashe Songs of a sleeping sky Diminuendo of a dying day I feel my emotions change The orange-red shifts into darkness And so do I Slowly So slowly The clouds wanton across my eyes in their whimsical wisdom Do they ever intend to show me the things they do? Visions of 1000 realities can be birthed from one glance My eyes can dilate in awe of a beautiful dream The...
By Dimo Wa Moraswi Sekele Fail, fear and a shade of shame Drawing from my own experience I think it is only fair that I admit to a great extend that, passing at school was not influenced by a desire to succeed, but a great chunk of fear of failing. I related more to failing than passing and in my mind I...
