going off og matt and neil being dumb best friends they've totally gone into the kitchen and made 5 ingredient smoothies using the GROSSEST things they can find. like neil uses kevin's kale, egg whites, a bell pepper, two of andrew's brownies and frozen broccoli and it smells horrible and tastes like tar and rubbing alcohol but matt will be damned if he doesn't drink it while staring neil directly in the eyes

FFJKG THEY TOTALLY DO THIS THO?? they’re so dumb they definitely make each other eat gross things like the actual 5 year olds they are together can u imagine them going to see a movie together and matt expects neil to get them popcorn but no he gets them a packet of those chocolate covered insects and matt hates this guy but he’ll also eat bugs for him and i think that’s beautiful

I haven’t read this book yet but I love it already. Yes, that’s my namesake so imagine how cool it would’ve been if books like this existed when I was growing up.

 This re-imaging of the classic fairytale is set in the Kingdom of Lesotho so Refilwe is high up in a mountain cave instead of a tower and she has long beautiful dreadlocks.

 A big shout out to Zukiswa Wanner (who is also the founder of the Read SA campaign) and other African writers who are telling our stories and retelling the classics for the children of the continent to enjoy and identify with.

  •  REFILWE: An African retelling of Rapunzel by Zukiswa Wanner is available at Exclusive Books stores. I’m hoping that it’s also available in SeSotho, SePedi, SeTswana and  other vernacular languages.

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I’m the Queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in; Heaven knows I’ve tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back any more
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry
Here I stand
And here I stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystalizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
When I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand in the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

Africa was a planned trip

PH is not running away from the horrendous news cycle the last few days .  NYC stated a few weeks ago that PH would be in Africa the last of June. It is now the last part of June .     

Once you read past the click bait headlines of the Sun article , the article states 

“ He has returned after last year for the second phase of a project to move elephants from an overpopulated area to one where they had been wiped out. ”    

 He went to Africa to fulfill a commitment to this patronage  he made before the Newsweek article was released .  The BRF has a long tradition of continuing their duties regardless of how low their  rating is with the public.  It is their duty , it shows stability and dedication.    Let’s not jump on the Harry screwed up and ran for cover in Africa story line because it is not true .

Very lattedah, thank you so much, I went looking for airlines and today’s departure from JFK to Africa and London.
