My favourite (and only) sibling got married last weekend and it was so much fun. It’s not often you get to have all of your family and close friends in one place.

As we count down the days to vaykayshun I can’t wait to go to the beach, swim and be with friends and family once more. And now this week’s Bytesized:

🤖Where being human always wins
⚡Load Shedding – there’s an app for that
You know load shedding is alive and well when not one but TWO apps that let you know when there will be no electricity is in the top 5. I really like that one is called EskomSePush. If you’d rather not download an app, check out the City Power website to find out when load shedding will be coming to a suburb near you.
💓Trevor Noah visits his grandmother & it’s the sweetest thing ever
The internet got angry because Trevor has all that money but they thought his gran should have a better house. Stop being offended on behalf of other people. The internet has become a pro at doing this. Also how awesome is Trevor’s gogo?
