I haven’t captured all my thoughts on the Fees Must Fall crisis in this piece, but considering another building at the university I graduated from has been set on fire, I thought it was time to put pen to paper. I chose to do this as a response to an article written by News24, who interviewed Athabile Nonxuba. Nonxuba is a student leader and is connected with the Rhodes Must Fall and Fees Must Fall movements.

This is going to get heavy folks, so if you want to enjoy Woman’s Day as if it were any other fun-filled public holiday, please ignore this and enjoy the rest of your break.
EGE! ROUND 2! FIGHT!
I wrote a small piece on the upcoming EGE Expo for the Cape Times. It got published fairly intact which I was quite chuffed with. However, I have mailed them asking that they change the title of “gaming expert” to gaming/geek blogger/journalist/writer. While I do know a lot about the games industry, I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on the subject. At least my suggestions match up with my qualifications (journalism was part of my undergrad).
I ramble a bit about Overwatch, how it plays and how it handles on lower end hardware, and how to get it cheaper if your exchange rate sucks.
