misogyny is celebrated

misogyny is enamored by us

boys will be boys , they said

but she is a girl, why not………..

endless improvement suggestions

pushed down our throats

why can’t you keep your husband straight, you have failed

see so and so her husband doesn’t do this, why not………….

why is he beating her,  she is not clean

she does not know how to keep a man

why will he, if she had been coy, sweet talker, better cook

better yet always improving herself

Be more patient, are you praying ?

while no effort is made over there,

so i say, why not….he…………….

can she clap with one hand ?

better yet, is he still a child ?

endless rhetorical questions

THE life I’ve always wanted

“In the end, the basic ingredients of existence never falter, whether you’re flying business or red-eye economy, or staying home.” Erin at outerNotes reflects on the lifestyle of a worldly jet-setter and wonders whether she’s “made it.”

Easy delicious scones with jam

So in lieu with my foodie life, i tried a recipe by JOYOFBAKING

So it is baked “of course“,read (DUH) so pre heat your oven 280 degrees , i have to admit this is a party popper, you take it to an event and people think you put in so much hard work when you literally just whipped it up with your whisk in a few minutes. bake for 15 to 18 minutes

things that you will need

2 cups (260 grams) all purpose flour

1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces

2/3 – 3/4 cup (160 – 180 ml) buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.dsc00896

Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.

Add the buttermilk and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and stir just until the dough comes together. Do not over mix.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough gently and form into a 7 inch (18 cm) round that is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick. Use a 2 1/2 inch (6.5 cm) round biscuit cutter to cut the dough into circles or any cutter of your choice. Transfer the scones to the baking tray and brush the tops of the scones with a little milk.

Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Can be stored at room temperature for a few days.

“you can’t cage the wind”, beautiful it took me time to comprehend

Ruth was the kind of person whose voice you had to mine before you heard it. I asked her, “Tell me what happened.” She said, “Do you really want to know?” “No, but some selfish part of me wants you to hear yourself talk about it.” My demons like me alone. They come to me […]

LONG LOST FRIEND

 My long lost friend contacted me last week

The friend that was wiped out of my earth

the friend who was not on the same continent as me

my friend who I last  saw in 2013

friends for almost a decade

our bond is strong I’d say

 we clicked and continued

as though we had been living in the same room

for the last two years

The one person I thought had forgotten me

the person I missed on lonely nights

of insomnia and sleeplessness

Oh if only Sameera charged her phone

LOL!

Fitting into the box ?

Yes my procrastinating self now tries her best to upload a post every Monday, it is no easy feat but i wish to improve my habits, anyways here i come.

Hello to anyone reading this welcome to my blog where i post anything that comes to my mind which revolves mainly around fictional excerpts made from real life, yes i am confused and trapped in this deadly cycle of over thinking real life situations and giving them a literary view with a scientific twist, because i am indecisive i could not figure out which one of my poems to post so i decided to compose one for my blog today for the first time and yes RIP Mike Brown.

Fit into the box

stuck in a box

 that defines you 

 not as a complex individual

 put in there by society and its members

 You need not fit into it you just need to be in it

 for being stuck in there gives a sense of control over 

 a very surprise full life 

 perhaps uneventful

 Categorised and herded into imaginary boxes

 some overlap while some do not

 Redefine stereotypes you will not dare 

 You little traitor to society’s box’s

 Do you put people into boxes ?

 Do you stick them there ?

Not given a chance to be an individual……

only part of a box……

fit in there……… it has cut off your wings.

BYe! wishing you an eventful week, hope you had a wonderful weekend.
