'In Buea, at the center of Molyko, a cozy restaurant stands atop a bank, so that one may be tempted to say it’s standing on top of money. In May 2015, this restaurant, Twist, was birthed just across the road from where the former Amazing Pharmacy used to be; birthed by a single parent and a good spirit… sort of like Jesus Christ'.

FROM THE CRADLE (PART 7) He loved me so much and I loved him too. One time he came to town with some friends. One of them was seeing a friend of mine and another was toasting another friend. We all went to sit out. About six guys and six girls. We decided to play the game 'Truth' without the dare. Someone asked my friend whose bf was on the table if she had ever been with a girl and she replied yes. If you see the reaction on the table. All the guys were doing as if she has fucked up. Her bf sef, his ears stood like avatar. We kept playing the game, then one of the guys asked me the same question, in my mind I was like 'who does this guy want to expose?' I didn't care that a girl I was fucking was sitting on the table, I replied No. I broke the rule of the game. I lied. All the girls on the table knew I was lying but the guys had no clue. If you see the big smile that appeared on my bfs face. I wasn't sure if I should be happy about that or sad. Gradually I started meeting and hanging with some bisexuals and lesbians who were not really out but didn't exactly give a shit what anyone thought. One of them told me her friend saw me once and likes me. She didn't live in the same town with me but we would talk for hours non stop. Day and night we were in touch. We began sexting and having phone sex. It was a lot of fun. So I took a trip to see the bf, then i met this group of friends. All lesbians and bisexuals. I felt at home around them. One of them started flirting with me towards the end of that trip. Somehow we kept talking everyday and in a week I was back there, not to see bf this time. Infact he didn't know I was in his town. I would wear a face cap or a hoodie if I had to go out during the day. Went for one party with her and her friends, Someone saw me there and told Le boo. This person did the amebo so well and described everything I wore in details. The uniqueness of my belt + my new haircut gave me away. But I no gree, I still denied it when he asked me. Being in the closet almost turned me into a liar. To be continued #lnblife #lnbtruth #lnb9ja #lnbreality #lesbian #bisexual #closet #truestories #experiences #annonymous #nonfiction #lgbt

Kindness is contagious, probably because it feels so freakin' good. What can you do for someone else tomorrow? #SecretBookStuff . . . 📷 @whatjanedid

#amreading Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility by James P. Carse: "'Garden' [in this context] is a place of growth, of maximized spontaneity. To garden is ... to design a culture capable of adjusting to the widest possible range of surprise in nature. Gardeners are acutely attentive to the deep patterns of natural order, but are also aware that there will always be much lying beyond their vision. Gardening is a horizonal activity. ... All culture has the form of gardening: the encouragement of spontaneity in others by way of one's own, the respect for source, and the refusal to convert source into resource. ... Gardeners celebrate variety, unlikeness, spontaneity. They understand that an abundance of styles is in the interest of vitality. The more complex the organic content of the soil, for example -- that is, the more numerous its sources of change -- the more vigorous its liveliness. Growth promotes growth. So also in culture. Infinite players understand that the vigor of a culture has to do with the variety of its sources, the differences within itself. The unique and surprising are not suppressed in some persons for the strength of others. The genius in you stimulates the genius in me. . . . #infiniteplay #quotation #nonfiction #sunrisenofilter #52booksinayear 34/52

Hey guys I got my Leonardo Da Vinci Biography by Walter Isaacson delivered today. I read the Introduction and Chapter 1 of the book and honestly I think I'd get a more joyous ride than what I got of by reading Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs' biography is my favourite biography I've read until now. Let's see if Isaacson can seduce me more with his new book 😍.

maybe it's desperation and scarcity, not abundance, that makes us more generous
