And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.

Hey loves!

So after much debate, I’ve decided to share what my NEW YEAR goal is. I have decided to get back to that College life! After a 2 year medical hell storm I have been cleared by my doctors and feel confident enough to hit those Sociology books once again! Although I still struggle with a post-surgery condition, I feel that my remission is steady enough to face that collegial stress!

So that being said, here is how I can make that happen! My family owned knitwear shop is up and running again and my mother, sister and I are back to knitting/crocheting our favorite winter-wear!

If you’d like to support my goal or support a Black owned business or support a Canadian business…or maybe you’re just cold:

Go ahead and check out our online shop over here: http://etsy.me/1a7twtZ

I need College funds.

You need a scarf.

VOILA! Problem solved. ;)

Sincerely

Your girl,

-A.

Nigerian Architect Kunlé Adeyemi’s “Floating School” Highlighted in Al Jazeera Documentary.

Two years ago, this pioneering floating school in Lagos’s ‘floating’ slum of Makoko was labelled as ‘illegal’ by authorities who then threatened to demolish it. This year, the brainchild of Nigerian architect Kunlé Adeyemi has been nominated as Design of the Year by London’s Design Museum.

Adeyemi’s innovative design came about after he had had several discussions with Makoko residents about how to resolve the environmental issues that concerned the local community. His design also came about during a time where the Lagos government had been threatening to evict Makoko residents and demolish the slum.

“There are hundreds if not thousands of Makokos all over Africa,” Adeyemi says. “We cannot simply displace this population; it’s important to think about how to develop them, how to create enabling environments for them to thrive, to improve the sanitation conditions, to provide the infrastructure, schools and hospitals to make it a healthy place.

“My belief is that in developing Africa we need to find solutions that can be developed by the grassroots, through the grassroots, and achieve the same level of significance as we have on the high-end projects.”
Now, in a new documentary project by Al Jazeera that looks at unconventional pioneers in the architecture industry, Adeyemi’s floating school is brought to life in the episode Working On Water, directed by award-winning South African filmmaker Riaan Hendricks, as part of the network’s Rebel Architecture series. 
Watch the series trailer here.
ETA: We’ll be uploaded the series after it airs on Al Jazeera so watch this space!
