Are you married? Have you been married before? Do you have friends who have gone to get married and you were left behind single and living your best life?
If you can answer to any of these questions then today’s creative crush might just stir you up. See the thing about marriage is admit it or not it does change people. We would like to lie to ourselves and say we will always be the same person once we get hitched but truth is just like seasons, people change. I’m speaking from the single friends perspective… Over the years I’ve lost a couple of friends to this marriage we speak of. However, it’s not a bad thing at all, at first it really used to affect me but I realised that my friends have a new chapter in their lives. Their priorities have taken a completely different turn and our get high or die trying days are over because love it or hate it, his or her partner is top priority now. These were the very thoughts that crossed my mind the first time I read Nobuhle’s blog post; Trashed.
The name Nobuhle means mother of beauty or with beauty. As you can already tell from her picture she is a true representative of her name. She’s a woman of many talents; not only does she blog but she’s a songstress too. Her mother has always encouraged her to embrace her talent and follow her musical passion. Unfortunately she doesn’t play any instruments but she has a strange love for piano, maybe someday she will learn. The one time she thought she was ready to learn she was told to cut her nails, no more gorgeous manicures? I think not!
I noticed that at some point Nobuhle (she calls herself uBu) wasn’t blogging as much. She says her blog statistics weren’t growing and it just pulled me her backwards. She was then nominated for the Creative Writing category at Zimbabwe Blog Awards and that right there was just the push she needed. Unfortunately everything on her blog was stale at the time but she decided if someone thought that old content was enough to get nominated it meant she was doing something right. She has been consistent ever since.
P.S. uBu is trilungual and I find that so very attractive! Imagine being able to speak three languages fluently. All the more reason she’s my creative crush today. You can listen in to her latest track here.
You can connect with Ubu on;
Blog Indaba The Meeting Place Community is hosting a creative crush this and every Wednesday. You will never run out of a good read from here on.
I’m curious to know, how many languages can you speak?
