Life: In Conclusion

In conclusion I am choosing to walk hand-in-hand with God and His purpose for my life. I am choosing, with His help, that in the coming year and years to come, I will start each day with my conclusion – my introduction and middle will eventually write themselves. “In conclusion…” That’s how most of my secondary school/GSCE essays ended. It was the beginning of the end, the part where I placed emphasis on the ‘argument’ I said I’ll prove in the introduction. The conclusion was also something we were usually told to write or brainstorm first – “think about how you’d like to end your essay, that tends to help with how you start your essay.” Most times, life is an essay and at this time of year a number of us are ‘proof reading’ our lives to ensure that all our A-grade points have been made and to be honest, it’s overwhelming. 365 days can often feel like the 2-hour GCSE Anthropology English exam in a dead-silent-smelly sports hall, on the hard plastic chairs, while …

dearEvents: Paul Carrick Brunson is BACK!

In 2011 a charismatic, confident Jamaican raised in America set foot in London for his first event in the UK. I didn’t know who he was and possibly didn’t know much about the event except that I was going to volunteer and would end up doing so with heels on and forget to pack some flats (I digress)… PAUL CARRICK BRUNSON IS BACK in London town for ‘It’s Complicated Live’ with an amazing UK panel. Tagged as the real life ‘Hitch‘, Paul has been involved in major moves since his last time in the UK and when I say major I mean Oprah, TV, a book and a NAACP [Literary Work – Instructional] nomination (the event is is named after his book – you know he’s major).
