I am…?

I am… Whitney.

A good friend of mine, Kouthar, had been speaking about how much I remind her of the main character in the TV series “Whitney” for a while. I didn’t think much of it (because I had never watched the show) until I watched an episode…

There I was. “Whitney” is exactly like me, down to the last detail. I guess after five years of friendship, you know your friend – REALLY well. Kouthar was spot on.

For those of you who haven’t watched the show here’s a sneak peak:

What motivates me?

“You gotta find a way to survive ‘cos they win when your soul dies.” – Tupac Shakur

At some point in my life I came to the conclusion that I have no choice but to keep on going until I get to where I want to be, and since that day, that’s all I’ve been doing.

What keeps me going is the fact that no matter how bad my situation in life may get, I know that one day it will get better. If I work hard now, one day my hard work will pay off – I’d be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour.

I don’t have a bad life, but it hasn’t been easy. God, my friends, family and my dreams have kept me going.

And of course, MUSIC has had a big impact on my life. It truly has kept me going through the toughest times in my life.

In my opinion, once you’ve decided where you want to end up one day and what kind of lifestyle you want to lead, you’ll keep going until you get there.

The hardest part about growing up…

To me, the hardest part about growing up is growing apart from those people you were always closest to. As we get older responsibilities creep in, people fall in love, interests change and people grow a part.

The one side of my bedroom wall is covered with pictures of those I hold closest to my heart. It’s filled with my favourite memories and people. When I woke up this morning, I found myself staring at all the pictures – the people – stages of my life; some new faces, some reoccurring faces and some faces that faded away.

I’ve always been blessed with the most amazing friends. And there are so many people that I miss.

But I guess part of life is growing up; cherishing, changing and expanding your circle of friends. The important part is that we remember to make time for EVERYONE that is special to us, never forget who was there for us and hold the happy memories close to our hearts.

“There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who never did, and who always will. So don’t worry about the people from your past, because there is a reason they didn’t make it to your future.”

The word ‘platonic’ exists for a reason.

Society has placed a strong emphasis on the male and female attraction. So much so that it’s almost automatic that people assume any boy-girl combination seen together are a couple. I mean really now, is the idea of a platonic relationship that ridiculous?

About a week ago, a good friend of mine and I decided to meet the rest of our friends at a party. Simply because everyone else had things to do beforehand and we wanted to be there early.

Within the first half an hour of being there, we had both been asked numerous times about our relationship. “NO WE ARE NOT DATING.” The funny thing is that this very same friend of mine, is in my close circle of friends. We are always out together. So what made this particular time different? We arrived together!



According to rumours I have dated ALL of my close guy friends to date. How entertaining. They are like the brothers I never had. I get along easier with guys. I have more guy friends than girl friends and I can safely say I don’t plan on falling in love with, hooking up with or marrying any of them. I love them but I am not IN love with any of them (and vice versa).

I think every girl and guy should have atleast one close friend of the opposite sex. Girls and guys can be friends, they’re supposed to be! People need to stop jumping to the wrong conclusions and see things as it is, sometimes guys and girls hang out – just because they’re friends and that’s what friends do.
