A TRIBUTE TO VICTIMS OF TERRORIST ATTACKS

If you switch on the news (Wait, do people even own tvs nowadays? Where do you get your news updates? News24 app? CNN website? The Daily Show with Trevor Noah?) chances are you'll come across the words terrorism or terrorist.  Most recently the Manchester bombing (The suicide bombing in Manchester, England after an Ariana Grande concert on 22 May 2017. During her One Love Manchester concert on Sunday she raised $13 million for victims of the attacked and she slayed her performance of Over The Rainbow like a boss.) and the London attack (The terrorist attack that happened on 3 June 2017 where 3 men drove a van into pedestrians and stabbed Londoners in the Borough Market area) have made headlines.



While doing research to find out what to write for today’s post I came across some heartbreaking articles about recent terrorist attacks.

CHEAP STUDENT FLIGHTS??? YASSS!

Do you know what's really annoying?  Seeing pictures on instagram of all these insanely beautiful, exotic places while you're busy studying for exams.


No seriously, Yas is a place and it's paradise!

SOUTH AFRICA THIS IS WHO OUR NEXT PRESIDENT SHOULD BE (HINT: NOT ZUMA)

As a first year computer science major would say, Hello World. And more importantly, Hello May (My birthday month eeep!). This month we've got something exciting coming to LBAS (Because having an acronym makes me feel like I made it in life). Every week I'm going to publish an opinion piece written by a reader/friend/fellow blogger. These posts are a way to gain insight from different people, and remind us that my voice isn't the only one you should listen to for your weekly, worldly news update (And also because I'm too lazy to come up with new stuff after that long weekend tbh). So sit back, relax and enjoy a different take on LIFE (This time not by Asha Singh *sigh*).

HOW TO BREAK UP WITH HIM/HER (AND THE FRENCH ELECTION)

There comes a time when the initial honeymoon stage of the relationship ends (*sigh* it was nice while it lasted). Before you know it, the days of romantic dates, going out to restaurants with names you can't pronounce, getting bouquets of roses and chocolates and being treated like a Queen/King fade into a distant memory. That's when you know it may be time to let go. Easier said than done! The one thing harder than starting a relationship is ending one. Don't you worry, Life By Asha Singh is here to make your life easier.

SO YOU THINK YOUR 2017 SUCKS?


Ah, a new year. There's always so much excitement and hope around the prospect of a new beginning. New goals, new adventures, more happiness, less drama - that's exactly what 2017 is going to be like, right? Wrong. By this point in the year, however, reality kicks in and you realise it's probably not going to be a field of roses. You get back into your schedule and life goes on as per usual. What happened to 2017, this is practically 2016S (Non-iphone users will probably not get that. Haha, simpletons).

HOW TO HANDLE STUPID PEOPLE

And by stupid I mean sexist, racist and homophobic; the worst kind of stupid there is.

You know that guy that always remarks that you'll never get a boyfriend because you're too much of a feminist? Or those church friends that show disgust when they see two guys arm in arm? Even those times you were right in the middle of events that show the underlying institutional racism that we have eluded (or tried to, at least) all these years (*hint*, Shimla Park)?
