Friction is necessary. Ease of life leads to complacency and the atrophy of the human will and spirit. Within our struggles lives our strength within our trials lives our triumphs. Friction creates a platform for change generates heat and or fervor and creates a motivational charge that gives us an opportunity to be better. A gem cannot be polished without friction and so neither a person without hardships. Friction within and friction without sharpens our senses and revives our internal resolutions. Friction is uncomfortable hardships are distressing but both are necessary. We cannot light a match without friction nor can we hone steal. Uncomfortable as it may be our adversity ultimately lights a fire and sharpens our very will to flourish. Today let us not be discouraged let us not be bitter in our suffering rather let us be encouraged as we look to our trials as a medium that will eventually make us better.

It has been crazy these past two years alot has happened .where do I start from let me see .

After we found out Scarlett was pregnant she left Lusaka she changed her lines and everything .nobody knows where she disappeared to unless her family .I wrote my grade 12 and I got 6 points yeah imagine ...

I applied at university of zambia at first I wanted to apply for a scholarship to study in Russia.

I have changed alot in terms of everything I Started working out and I can say my body looked amazing though no guy till now has approached me. 

My elder brother just got married like 4 months ago. .it was an amazing wedding .

Scarlett hasn't gotten back " Jack  asked 

Was my new friend and we were in the same class he knew about me scarlet that we were inseparable .

I just can't wait to see her " I said eating my sandwich. 

Do you think she will ever come back " he asked 

I don't know " I said 

 I missed her so much I know she was hurting but she didn't have to go .I wanted to be there for her .

After my outing with Jack I went back  home I found mum holding an envelope .

Mum are you okay " I asked putting my handbag down 

You have been accepted at university of zambia" she screamed 

I just couldn't say anything I was just happy my dream school lol.

I was starting school in the next two months .

Me " I pointed at myself 

Who wouldn't ask if you see a guy standing next to me you would point a thousand times .

I think this guy has lost it .

He put his number and called himself .

Days like this or when I have a function to go to Scarlett always had my back do I miss her yes very much I just wish she can call and tell me she is alright . Sometimes I think she is dead am I wrong to think like that? 

 I think this blue jumpsuit and those blocked heels will do " she said 

No handbag" I asked

I took a quick shower cause it was already 16.

When I was done I lotioned and Anna started doing my make up .

She took some pics .
