It's been about six weeks (at the time this article was being written) since iOS 7 was released by Apple and so far we have seen two additional upgrades ever since. If you are one of those users who likes playing it safe, then you are probably still on iOS 6, waiting for all the bugs to be eliminated before you can upgrade your iPhone or iPad. Well. I'm not saying its a bad thing especially considering iOS 6 is what we knew to be the best before we tasted the whole new world provided by iOS 7.
It’s that time of the year when enough weddings happen. If you are in Dar Es Salaam, you can be guaranteed that between now and February next year you will be coming across those noisy “Tarumbeta Bands” doing what they do best – noise pollution. Actually I believe it’s not just in Dar Es Saalam you’ll find these guys but all over Tanzania. If you are a visitor in Tanzania, you’ll be forgiven for thinking its World Cup in South Africa all over again owing to the deafening and sometimes discordant sounds.

Some of the simplest things make for the best relaxation methods in the world. I say this because just the other day I was looking for something to ease my frustration after what I can say was the most frustrating day of this past week. I tried playing solitaire but that didn’t work. I tried playing minefield, that didn’t work either. Not even music was soothing or calming my mind on this day. Then to add insult to injury, Tanesco decided to play their “cat & mouse” games with power, and as a result, we had no Internet in the office for a while.
You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, "I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life...” Joel Osteen
A while back, I wrote about this woman whose toilet ethics were definitely not complementing her outward beauty. For the sake of those who didn’t read the article, let me just say that this woman didn’t seem to know what the phrase “leave a place better than you found it” meant. In short, she used the toilet and left it not habitable for the next person who came in; unfortunately that person happened to be me.
Today I write this message from a place of feeling very discouraged. I write this from a place of feeling tired by things that are going on around me. I write this from a point of acknowledging that every day is different from the next. If you are going through such a time, tooday I am you and I share this word of encouragement to uplift you and I both.

I was really looking forward to having a peaceful weekend after what had been constant weeks of pressure, anxiety, more pressure and more anxiety. I remember I woke up earlier than I would have wanted to, primarily because my “dada” was going home on that day. Nevertheless, I was eagerly looking forward to a drama free, stress free and pressure free weekend.
