Officer Dube strolled from his desk at the rear of the police station, passing three empty holding cells, to the coffee machine in reception. The sun was setting with haste on a frigid June afternoon in Johannesburg, and he needed a strong brew to get him through the night shift.

As a policeman, Mpilo Dube didn’t have much to do anymore, since the syndicate of ATM robbers went underground that April. A gang of vigilantes had been terrorizing Gauteng shopping malls for months, blowing up ATMs with crude home-made explosives – often in broad daylight. He would be the first to get the call, rush to the scene, and find nothing but molten plastic and half-burned bank notes fluttering in the breeze.

The gang always seemed to be one step ahead of him and his fellow law enforcers; executing heists with the skill and precision that only seasoned criminals are…

Tomorrow is my birthday. I’m turning twenty-six!

After writing about my bisexuality last week, I knew I wanted to do a post that directly correlated to my birthday. And what was the first thing that popped into my brain? Taylor Swift, obviously. Okay, no, wait — don’t go anywhere! Just let me explain before you slam the door on me.

First, it needs to be established that I have loved Taylor Swift with a fiery passion since I was fifteen years old. As any true fan would know, she is turning thirty this year and back in March, she wrote a beautiful piece for Elle Magazine called “30 Things I Learned Before Turning 30.” I vividly remember reading it while standing in an airport bookshop, attempting to inconspicuously hide from the clerk cause I couldn’t afford to buy the actual magazine.

Creatively Political & Politically Creative

During the past two years, I’ve fallen down a lot of holes. Some, I didn’t think I would ever be able to get out of, despite it being my own choice that I ended up there in the first place. Through a couple hundred YouTube videos, podcasts, tv shows, novels, movies, and one university course, I discovered that I had an absolute love for the horror genre. You could even call it more than just a love – an infatuation. An obsession. A passion that I’m both thankful for and afraid of. This love has opened doors to worlds that I never knew existed; holes to fall down that I never could have imagined were dug so deep.
