There’s a way in which New York welcomed me. I have tried to not read too much into it, but it’s hard to not feel the city is intent on ensuring I feel at home.
5 years ago, in early January of 2017, I moved to Lilongwe. I had just completed my undergraduate studies, and I told my parents I was moving to a city 220kms away. I am living my last days in a city I have for half a decade loved to call home. I am sitting at one of my favorite restaurants, writing this, for mostly me, and maybe you too.
It’s only the end of the first quarter of the year, and I am feeling fairly burnt out. I have gotten used to the cycles now, and know when to pause when I start feeling everything getting too heavy.
It is 2247HRS. I am still working. Nthangwanika got here with a bottle of champagne. She said we are celebrating the launch of the Mangochi hub before I leave for Mangochi.
As the month of Love comes to a close, I’m celebrating Love – Love in all forms; romantic Love, family Love, friendship Love. I am reclaiming the power of my pen, and I’m wishing you plenty Love ahead.
To celebrate my being a fulltime blogger/content creator (again), I have collaborated with Amaryllis Hotel Blantyre to give away a one night stay for two, and dinner for two at Amaryllis Hotel Blantyre.
