    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

In Community We Thrive… (Part 1)

‘Ukama igasva hunozadziswa nekudya’

 

This is a Shona , one of Zimbabwe’s main languages,axiom that roughly means, in English,  food is the best way to strengthen and solidify social ties. When there is a wedding, celebration, gathering, meeting, and so forth, usually food is provided to sustain those present and as a way of making the event worth the gathering!! Talking about gatherings, during the Fall break, my roommates, Brett, Jordan and Aisha (a roommate is someone you live with… and we live with Aisha, literally) convened in our magnificent apartment (I am yet to see one as grand as ours… challenges are welcome…) for lunch. Jason wasn’t around at the time to share the table with us, unfortunately. We had a delectable, mouth-watering, ambrosial, luscious, scrumptious, …*insert all synonyms here*… , taco pizza made by Jordan; he is as good at cooking as Shakespeare was at literature. This made my Fall break a memorable one and just to think the previous day, Zimbabwean students at CSS, current and graduated, professors at CSS and UMD, and their families convened together for a classic five-star Zimbabwean dinner.

Best Roomies Ever!! One is missing in the photo...and notice dinner cooking at the edge of the counter...
