I Now Hate All Personal Trainers

I am usually very selective about what I share with people and am not one to reveal what gets me down or put myself in a vulnarable position but like I said in this post, I want to start talking about this stuff. Who knows, someone might relate and be kinder to themselves after they find out they're not alone. This post was not an easy one to republish.When I first wrote it, I tried to make it comical to hide how dissapointed and hurt I was by what transpired in that gym and have decided to rewrite and republish it to get what was really going through my mind at the time out there.

I avoided talking about my gym chronicles because I really didn't want to become one of those clique bloggers who  try compensate for their fatness or justify it by openly working, but at the same time the kind of duchebagery that goes on in gyms can mess with your head, mind and brain and end up doing more damage than good. Besides, I actually enjoy working out

My mpondo I dentity

I don't quite remember why I started this blog but I know that I want  it to reflect who I am and my cultural identity forms and intergral part of that. Everytime I make mention of my Sukude clan name and Mpondo heritage, theories other tribes have about us both shocks and saddens me. Apart from our neighbouring nations always steal the thunder, the miseducation and misidentification of mpondo people about their own identity is actually quite systematic from the days of colonialism but I won't get into that. Ever heard of the wild coast? Yep, that's us right there.

If you are or know a student between grade 9-11, studying maths and science of looking to pursue water related careers in sciences, engineering, water utilization and management, geography and/or environmental law, then please do continue reading for some awesome easy competitions for a chance to win a full tertiary bursary, laptops, cash prizes and other cool stuff.
Every year, the Department of water affairs runs a series of competitions to identify students with lots of potential and would become a valuable investment to them in order to address the issue of skills shortage in the water sector. They are open to all South African students and are truly an eye opener.
