Plus size fashion haul :part 2

This not having a laptop thing is really hindering progress. Editing videos for my youtube channel is a pain in the neck because I have to borrow other peoples laptops and install software on them and then somehow I always end up almost breaking them. Its stressful! if I could I would use the university computers but the do not have the software nor do they allow installation of new software.
oh Bill Gates, father of Microsoft, hear my cries.

Before 1995, the 24th of September was celebrated as Shaka Zulu day and people would gather at his grave in his honour. In 1995, The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) proposed that this be a national holiday and after much delibaration, a compromise was reached and the it was decide that it should be heritage day and celebrated by all peoples and all cultures of South Africa.

While I appreciate the sense of unity and appretiation for other culture it brings in a tribalism and afrophobia ridden country, reducing identities to just one day of reciting clan names and wearing traditional attire is not enough for the urgency with which our cultures and traditions need to be preserved and once again become a norm but thats assimulation for you.
