Kitchen roses & ‘cool’ siblings

The roses in this photo really remind me of the family house on the Usambara mountains, the roses surrounded the house  visible in every window especially the kitchen, i miss that place, i haven’t been there since 2011. The whole family used to go there on the December holidays, when it was warmer (It’s hot in December and cooler in July). We had a love hate relationship, since the house was on a remote town which only recently got electricity, there was a lot of work to do and now evil climate change is doing its thing. 

As I grew older i grew to love the peace and solidarity of the place unlike when i was younger when i hated the fact that there was no TV, friends and that i had a bunch of siblings who were ‘too cool’ to play with. 

Hope we go there this time. hope we don’t

PS. I couldn’t find my own photo so i had to go with this one but its really similar

PSS: This is the longest post i have ever written

The day I have been dreading is getting closer and now there two more days till I’ll say hasta la vista to freedom from  the responsibilities school brings.

This school term there are several things I’ll like to accomplish or change.

1. Make new friends

2. Stop buying too much kit kats and sneakers from the money hungry canteen

3. Get better grades (Which should be easy since I’m dropping the subjects i suck at).

PS. The illustration above is the complete opposite to the site my desk is in. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
