Enemy of my enemy

There are people who become your friend for a particular reason. That reason can be some form of temporary gain, or a favor they would like to get out from you.

Moon houses

Back some time ago, there was a lot of complaint about the government demolishing illegal houses in Addis. I have to admit that I felt sad for the households that live in these houses.

Leaving the box

I love injera! For me, going a day without injera is like going a day without food. Honestly, I do not feel like I have eaten anything of substance if I did not have at least one ‘gursha’ of injera during the day.

Identity matters

I am currently in the middle of a book entitled in Amharic ‘Ametseganw Kiliss’ which literally translates to ‘The rebellious mixed-race boy’.

Radio silence

You have probably heard of this term in relationship articles that describe the vanishing act of people that you used to date and the silence that follows after that. You thought you were all great together and perfect for each other, and then one day your guy or girl vanishes from your world without a word of explanation.

Be the fertile ground

Almost 70% of the Ethiopian population consists of the youth aged 30 years or below. We have reached the point at which the fate of the country is in the hands of the youth, for good or for bad.

Use soap!

Back some time ago, an outbreak of Cholera was reported in the different parts of the country.

Raise the bar!

Who likes competition? The average person would probably answer, not me! Competition can be stressful, that’s for sure. But the truth is, competition is our best friend in disguise.

Yes we can!

‘Arengwade gorf’ or ‘the green flood’ was what we used to call our athletes more than a decade ago now. I bet many of you remember this brand.

Impact is all that matters

Most of us are probably familiar with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. This theory tells us that the need of human beings goes at least through five stages, namely, physiological needs, safety needs, the need for love and belongingness, esteem needs and self-actualization needs.
