My teammates surprised me with this super pretty rucksack last Friday. I love it! I wasn’t kidding when I said before that they are the sweetest, most thoughtful colleagues ever. The gift came along with a chocolate cake from Mary Grace and little handwritten notes from each member of the team. Isah also gave me GD shirts (all the fangirl feels) together with a Big Bang group poster. Thank you for spoiling me on my last day at work!
I love you guys! I will miss you but I’m sure keeping in touch won’t be a problem. All of you will always be dear to me even if I meet and work with new people in the future. :)

“The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of love.”
Current: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed (on Kobo)
This will probably be my most highlighted book for this year. Everything that Sugar says is so true, uplifting and encouraging. Her words will punch you straight in the gut. And everytime I pick up this book (or my tablet for that matter), I learn something new and also tear up a little. It’s beautiful is all I can say.
This is beautiful and very motivating.
Editor’s note: Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah is queen of Jordan and has been an advocate for children’s education for years in her country, across the region and around the world, working with such groups as UNICEF. This open letter to the girls of the world is part of the “Girl Rising” project. CNN Films’ “Girl Rising” documents extraordinary girls and the power of education to change the world.
(CNN) — Dear Girls of the World,
Some of you will be familiar with the childhood rhyme, “What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of.”
Marketing and stereotyping combine to have us believe that you’re also made of pink dresses, pigtails, dolls, ringlets, ribbons, bows and tiaras. That you like cupcakes. That all you will want to be are wives and mothers. That you’re more “inclined” to the arts and “better suited” to caring professions like teaching and nursing.
And, maybe, that’s true for some. But my daughter Salma teaches me every day that there’s so much more to you — and for you.
Salma is 13, and I can count, on one hand (in fact, on one finger!), the occasions she’s worn a dress — and they’ve never been pink! Dolls always stayed on the shelf. She’s happiest dribbling a soccer ball past her brothers and scoring goals or building model airplanes with her father. She dreams of being an engineer. That’s my Salma; that’s why I love her.
This sounds more like a poem to me. I love you dearly, Macklemore. What a talent.
MENTAL MAPS turned 4 today.
Just saw this in the mail. Woot! My tumblr has come a long way!
Trying something new with my colour palette. I think my favourite thing about this is the lion. He came out so well!
