In November, I’ll be graduating with a Master of Architecture Degree from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

I don’t know what I want to do with myself yet.. All I’m certain of is that I do not want to be stuck in a boring 9-to-5.

I think too much

I think I’m of ‘the race that knows Joseph’ – Lucy Maud Montgomery

UPDATE: 10/10/2015

3 years later, and I’ve never been stuck in a boring 9-to-5 🙂

I still think too much

I’ve still not decided what to do with myself – I’ve come to accept that that’s just who I am. I went off and got another Masters’ Degree from University of Oxford – mostly for the intellectual company, also for when I go down the PhD road. I loved my dissertation. Also, I’m back in Ghana for a year (I think) and I’ve started a social architecture enterprise -> sociarchi.com

UPDATE: 15/06/2015

I’ve been running sociarchi with my pal Emmanuel for since September 2015. It’s been really hard work… more sleepless nights than I like, but we’re doing the kind of stuff we’ve always wanted to do, so that’s great. That, and all the other side gigs and projects I’m doing because I can’t mind my own business.

I still think way too much. Any ideas on how to silence the inner voices for an hour perhaps? > lol let me know.

UPDATE: 20/08/2020

5 years since my last update – wow. I’m currently doing a PhD at SOAS, University of London in Politics and International Studies. My research is broadly about the Politics of Architecture in Africa, and specifically about schools.

I’m still running sociarchi, as well as Accra Archive – a digital Ghanaian architectural archive project, and adansisem – an architecture collective that documents and showcases stories of Ghanaian architecture. Still on the multiple projects thing – because there’s so much to do! – though I’m better at not taking on more than I can handle these days (I think)

I still think way too much, but that’s okay with me.

  1. An early congratulations upon completing you Masters. Looking forward to seeing your works to improve GHANA. GOD knows it needs it

  2. Finally found a Ghanaian blog worth my time.
    Love your works.
    PS: lemme know when you figure out what you wanna do with yourself. Could use some tips 😉

    • I’m working in Cameroon now, bringing architecture for malaria prevention to an underprivileged community, Not a 9 -5, and definitely not boring. I have to change my “About”, 🙂

  3. Hello,

    I would like to introduce myself. My name is Angela, I am a freelance editor and I’m currently writing for Ghanaian and international blogs and websites writing articles on various topics such as sports, technology, fashion, beauty, career and employment. Today, while surfing the Internet, I came across your site and I really liked it. I wanted to first compliment you on it and I was wondering if you were interested in one of my articles for your site? If so, please let me know at your earliest convenience by writing an e-mail to my personal account.

    Thank you in advance and have a great day. Kind regards,

  4. Hi.great! I’m proud to hear of someone who believes in volunteering for ghana. I teach in a sec school n help to get a few things for the school. But ppl ask me why I do that for free. Hope we can share some ideas later. Keep it up.

  5. I’m not usually one to leave a comment after reading an article, but I just had to let you know just how enjoyable your blog is. I love and enjoy beautiful, thought-provoking articles so much. I think the internet is my greatest friend and foe since I can be hooked to reading too many things outside of what I intended getting from it for the day and I must say, your blog just got me reading and reading…You’re really a talented writer and your thought processes are just splendid. Keep it up!
    New fan 😉

    You should safeguard the inner voice. There couldn’t be a better tool to shape the minds of those who have heard the voice in writing.
