The great American poet Jamie Foxx has shared his sentiments with the world when he released musical sonnets such as “blame it” and “extravaganza” others such as Akon have followed suit with “sorry blame it on me” as people whenever things do not go our way we always point fingers at others, but why?
Katt Williams once asked; “how do I fcuk up your self-esteem, its esteem of yourself”? Rightfully so, how does one temper with what you are feeling? You cheat and get caught, you point fingers, you mess up a job interview and it’s somehow the interviewers fault, your phone gets lost and it’s not your problem.
Winter is a cold and brutal season. When it suddenly and drastically knocks on our doors, the word winter became synonymous with seasonal relationships. Seasonal relationships are affairs that are better explained with the saying; “you scratch my back and I will scratch yours”. They become the norm of the cold winter days.
In the mist of all this fun and excitement, we forget about Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). We act invisible, forgetting that seasonal relationships come and go, but STDs stay with us forever. Take a look around and think of how many people the person lying next to you has slept with, and in all those pleasurable moments, have they protected themselves properly. When was the last time they had an HIV test done?
We know HIV very well as an incurable virus, but unfortunately the rest are a mystery.
There are two types of categories for STDs. Bacterial and viral STDs.
Bacterial STDs are the easiest to catch and also treatable, you can get rid of the STD by visiting a doctor and taking the necessary measures, as instructed by a doctor.
Never use over the counter medications for STDs.
Bacterial STDs – Sexually Transmitted Diseases – Vaginosis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Chancroid, Donovan sis, Enteritis and Proctocolitis, Neonatal Sepsis and Postpartum Fever, Postpartum Fever and Meningitis, Shigellosis, Trichomonal Virginities, Urethritis.
A viral virus STD stays in your system for a long period of time and sometimes like HIV/ AIDS, you get to live with it for the rest of your life. It can’t be cured. Viral Virus STDs – Herpes Simplex, Human Papilloma Virus, Cytomegalovirus, Human herpes virus type 8, Hepatitis A, B, and C, HIV/AIDS, Adult T-cell leukemia, Molluscum Contagiousum.
Suddenly the girl at the office, who is desperate for love and attention, becomes the center of attention and the not so handsome guy is the talk of the office.
Visit your doctor at any sign of symptoms of an STD as soon as possible.
Rather be a safe than sorry. Always condomise and know your body.
Appreciate, love and happiness.
Life is a miracle and like a song one has to write lyrics in order to have a hit.
While thinking about the above statement, I discovered that we all sing the same song, but never in the same way. You can’t reach your full potential if you follow the dreams or live in the shadows of others, simply put; you have to write your own book in life.
I have a friend and her purpose in my life was to teach me how to embrace my indifferences or should say, dare to be unique. She taught me the joys of following my own heart and desires, to embrace flaws as because they are what separate as from the whole world.
So with this 1st edition of the newly revamped kaslam website, I hope we are:
Unique in every way possible
Help you stand out from the rest
Start a new Kaslam culture and lifestyle
Inspire you with the fashion page
And make your soul pump with music
Don’t be afraid of being an individual, in fact dare to be different.
