The name is made up of three parts:
• Rand (derived from the word ‘random’)
This means my topics are not tied to any specific category. I am able to write about anything and everything I deem fit. Subsequently, I gather information from all categories, depending on my immediate need.
• Rant (Monologue. a lengthy note done in an emotionally charged manner by a single performer)
I am able to speak at length regarding a specific matter, as interpreted in my ‘world’, influenced by things taught in classrooms, learnt from life’s experiences and most importantly, inspired by my Paraclete.
•Suffix: -tion is used to form nouns meaning “the action of (a verb)” or “the result of (a verb)
Therefore Randrantations is a made up English word meaning writings of a passionate individual regarding all aspects of life, done with the hope of brightening dull situations and celebrating bright ones.
