I’m Zintle Mvinjelwa, i’m 19 and 11 months, a second year student and this is my VERY FIRST written entry. I have never been a writer nor were my essays particularly great whilst in high school infect I have an ugly hand writing, terrible spelling as well as life-threateningly bad grammar skills. But after reading Amanda Sevasti’s blog titled “30 Things I Know At 30” I realised there is more to this life than living inside your comfort box. I’ll be turning 20 in a few weeks…so i am getting rid of the box as i enter my 20’s.
Here goes something titled …… 20-Thoughts
1.God loves you. “God so loved the world…” John 3:16
2.Be faithful- do EVERYTHING faithfully. Study, love, work, just be.
3.Don’t complicate your life.
4.Never put yourself above others and do to them as you’d like them to do to you
5.People will misunderstand you. Continue striving to be unambiguous and few will get your drift.
6.Keep a sisterhood. #SISTERHOOD/brotherhood-haha
7.Life’s challenges are challenging. Prepare for rainy days.
8.Music is amazing. It changes any mood_just like that.

10.Mom does it all out of love. Don’t disappoint her.
