Writing creatively about anything has its difficulties. But needs to be done. After my experiences: rejection and waiting endlessly for call backs and such, i decided i was gonna write. Jeez! mammoth task. but if i don't, who will? Luckily i live in South Africa, shenanigan-land. There's plenty to draw inspiration from.

How to Deal with Audition Rejection | Audition Rejection
How many times do you get rejected a month? None? Once or Twice? Well, try rejection everyday! No Jokes. An actor has to face rejection in some of the most merciless and inconsiderate ways possible. To be expected right? Well, quite frankly, one never gets used to it. If you, like me, are an actor, here are some "fun" ways to get over rejection. You can thank me later.

Grass Eating Church Members | Lesego Daniel
Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries Seems to think that ordering his congregation to eat grass will bring the closer to GOD? He's not only got them eating grass, but he beats on them and steps on them, claiming they don't feel anything. REALLY? When will people start questioning what is clearly bullshit and start making up their own minds?

Elderly South Africans 'rub condoms on their knees to ease arthritis pain'
This is part 2! Strange things are happening, now elderly people in Mpumalanga are rubbing condoms on sore joints because they think it will make the pain go away. Who is behind this rubbish. First Pastors get church members to eat grass and now this. South Africa has one of the highest HIV AIDS numbers in the world, we literally CANNOT afford this.

Genetically Modified Foods Dangers | GMO Health Risks
GMO, such a important topic to discuss! There is conflict though. Champions of the GMO movement use the time old excuse that GMO is feeding millions of hungry children in Africa. This may be the case, but how much do we know about what really goes into the foods that we are eating? There is evidence to suggest that the tampering on foods to suit the worlds commercial needs can be harmful to the body. Will it ever stop?

As an actress I would obviously take a huge interest in the release of the Nelson Mandela movie. I’m disappointed, however, that South Africa does not seem to be ready to put South African in leading roles; especially in South African stories. In my books it should go without say, but there are, as always, business considerations to address which will always see the film and media industry import talent from elsewhere in order to sell.In the light of the release of the Nelson Mandela film, Long Walk to Freedom, Fikile Mthwalo has expressed her own frustrations. Through her popular video blog "H8 Post" she gives, not commentary on the film itself, but the happenings behind the scenes. As a South African actress, she details in the video her constant dissatisfaction with the portrayal of South African (and African) icons by non South African actors. Although she looks up to established actresses featured in the Mandela movie such as Terry Pheto, Fikile Mthwalo still has the feeling that this is not enough to adequately…

E-Tolls | Gauteng e-Tolling | E-Tolling Rant
There are hundreds of reasons why we, South African road users, should not pay e-tolls. This is my satirical approach to this very serious issue. Who benefits, and how does the government just decide to implement this system despite overwhelming opposition from the public?

Screen Rant | Reality TV Rants | South African TV | Fikile Mthwalo
This was the very first H8 Vlog post ever. Having not been very successful in my presenter search endeavors in 2013. I resorted to speaking to one of my best friends, the camera. Venting my frustrations, particularly about presenter searches, to camera ended up being quite therapeutic. I rant about how presenter searches are a sneaky gimmick production houses use to create content when they have run out of ideas. I will present my own show one day...but probably won’t have to enter a dumb presenter search to get there.
