July 1: #QoTD

Black Lives have always and will always matter. In fact, matter is the bare minimum of how a Black life should be described. Black Lives...

It's Time.

Like many people, I have spent the last couple of weeks and months starting to educate myself on and learning about things...

Black Lives Matter

I have never understood racism. Maybe because there is absolutely zero logic to it. How can you hate a person, a stranger, so much that...

The Playlists

Want some background music? Need a soundtrack to a 1am dance sesh? Having a dinner party and need a DJ?

May Twenty-two: QoTD

I am the first (okay, maybe second) to admit I do not know everything, and one thing I do know is that I will never know everything.

What's Next?

In uncertain times, we often tend to try to make sense of what may be next. There's a reason that organised religions have existed...

May Sixteen: #QotD & Poem

I often wish my life was more like a Nora Ephron movie. Timeless, delicate, intricate stories of strong characters whose meet-cute moment...


We all have a lot of time on our hands at the moment. Well, at least I do. For all my life, I remember television...

May Thirteen: #QOTD

Audre Lorde was a remarkable poet, inspiring activist and extraordinary visionary. The world gave her so many reasons to not add to it -...

A Secret Love

I adore Taylor Swift. Adore as in I will travel across continents, defend her name against petty strangers, stand outside in the pouring...

Gods of The Ants

I know I haven’t been writing everyday like I planned. Truth be told, I’m struggling a bit during week 4 of this lockdown/quarantine...

Note to Self I.

All this quarantine and being stuck inside has led me back to the dangerous (but enlightening) pastime that is thinking too deeply.


The Story

How Sassy Was Born

Once upon a time, the world went into lockdown because of a nasty little disease called COVID-19. Like many others, I quickly became bored, restless, angsty. For as long as I can remember, whenever I've felt anything (including boredom, angst & restlessness) I've written about it. So, with a head full of ideas and spotty WiFi connection, I started a blog that features all kinds of my writing; thoughts, poems, stories and anecdotal incidents that would be unbelievable if I didn't happen to experience them first hand. Sassy is me at my best, worst, most complicated and sassy.
