Have you ever woken up in the morning and everything just seems to go wrong from the onset? Well I just had one of those. Tuesday was like that for me. Firstly I got up late (I am a routine sot of girl and I hate it when it gets disrupted). I went to school and got back some test results from last term, I definitely did not do as well as I would have liked. I then did a presentation in front of the first and second year journalism and you guessed it, it went horribly wrong. I was so nervous. I just kept on stumbling on my words. The day ended just as it had started. I forgot my purse at one of the counters at Spar and my purse is my life. It had my ID, bank card, gym card, money and a bunch of other things I just can’t live without. I have to give a big thanks to the lady at Spar who found it and gave it back to me this morning.
Now, on to a more interesting topic. I don’t know if anyone else watched last night’s episode of special assignment on witch craft. I don’t know if it’s just me but people seriously believe all those stories about people turning into flies and going to other people’s houses to listen in on their conversations. I think half of those people who believe they are bewitched are probably schizophrenic or have some other mental disorder and psychiatric help. The rest are probably just lying for one reason or the other. But hey that is just my opinion. I would like to hear your opinion on whether you believe such stories.
This is coming from a girl whose grandmother was a sangoma. Its not like I don’t believe in ancestors and our traditions because part of me does but I think even my grandmother who believed in witchcraft would be sceptical of those people. For a moment there I thought I was watching The Exodist except the movie was much more believable.
