Do you ever feel like you can’t quite figure out what you’re thinking? Or find yourself at a loss when you try to communicate your thoughts? No? Okay.

Well, I frequently feel that way, and this blog is the result of my efforts to make sense of my world, and the thoughts I have about it. I write about many different things–any thought I have can easily transform into a blog post when I start to write it down. I value genuineness and that is what I would like you to find here. Think of this blog as a home for the genuine thoughts of a kawaida Kenyan girl trying to figure things out. Isn’t that what we’re all doing? Trying to figure things out?

Occasionally, I invite some of my incredible friends to bring their own thoughts here. I also sometimes post fiction and book reviews. Mostly, though, it will be just you and me trying to figure things out. Surely that is enough to make you stay, no?

My name is Michelle Chepchumba. I love to read and to write and to eat good food and I nap quite a bit. Let’s be friends, okay?
