Ciiku’s Best of 2018

Does anyone ever write a “worst of (insert year)” post?

This is likely to be my last post of this year. A year of moderate highs and the LOWEST of LOWS.

I started this blog in February this year (a high).

So far, I have published 86 posts (one guest post) and have accumulated just under 10,000 views. I am very grateful for each one of you who has read, shared, commented on my posts.

My most favourite blog post that I enjoyed writing: Yaya Center and the Memories of a Friendship

Best book read: Sing, Unburied, Sing

Favourite song: This is hard to pick to be honest so here is a playlist of my 2018 faves

Favourite Kenyan song: Ayrosh + Kwame – Guuku This is easily the best song out in 2018.

Favourite album: Not sure it is my favourite but it came to me when I needed it. Seinabo Sey’s -I’m A Dream.

Most listened to song according to Deezer: Club Controller

One of the best decisions I made in 2018 was moving from Apple Music to Deezer.

The most fascinating YouTube channel – Lindsay Ellis

Best thing I made: These brownies from Chef Resha.

Best music video: This is a new-ish video and that is why it is in my mind Florence + The Machines – Big God. Awesome video.

Best TV show watched: Bojack Horseman’s Season 5 WAS EXCELLENT. Also started watching Steven Universe after Dot’s prompting and I AM SUCH A FAN!!

Podcasts: In 2018, I picked up a couple of podcasts – Steven Universe, Ghibliotheque, You are not so smart, Misandry with Marcia and Rae and Couples Therapy with Casey and Candice. I was sad that Dear Sugar ended but such is life.

I was also blessed to listen to Esther Perel and Brene Brown. They make me think differently and I love how they think and talk.
