Hmm!Random thoughts...

Assumption,presumption,suspicion,preconception,misconception,streotyping,
labelling,misconstrue,....these words seem to have something in common besides their parts of speech-they can easily and ignorantly land one into trouble.We often use some of these words in conversations,but do not really'think' of their interpretations.Some of the words,we 'act out'..not utter.Like'stereotyping' for instance....you will be biased if you 'assumed brilliant students are "always" proud.It's a stereotypical behaviour to now be snobbish towards them because you think'defence is the best form of attack'.Ok,enough playing around in words.Sometimes,I think too abstract I have to remind myself to not be too philosophical.So,I was meant to call up an obg and book an appointment.The conversation was a'one-way' thing as unexpected.For whatever reason,this fellow must have thought I was looking for a handout because that was the only explanation for t…

I've got this....

"The man/woman who keeps busy helping the man below him/her,will not have time "envying the man/woman above him/her"-Henrietta Mears.
Using 'slash' above is what I now do to be conscious of gender use.It's really amazing how education widens your scope and leave you better than you were.I admit that there are times I question myself about things that would be considered as trivials or even useless.But it's never stopped from from tossing some unanswered questions round my head.Usually,when there's a statement about people,I expect the pronoun to use a'non-specific' pronoun.But it doesn't usually happen and I wave it as one of those things.But in the past few weeks preparing for my exams,I have learnt so much and know that there's still more to learn.I know there has never been any moment in my life that I've regretted being a pupil or student.I've always had so much value and passion for education.I cherish the idea of learning…

What Will Be,Will Be!

Just because this phrase is used,doesn't mean one should fold arms and do nothing.You can't just throw in the towel and be idle or docile.After over three decades of being on this planet,am just learning the word"Safari" is a Swahili language meaning 'Journey'..how interesting!Am not in anyway ashamed to say that because it doesn't mean am a dolt at everything else.As humans,learning is what we do and it's a continuous process..am developing a cold feet(no pun intended..no figurative expressions here).Winter's warming up&I think I must get off my butts now before my feet freezes....the socks can't handle it..too cold to handle I guess.Will return to this topic by 'morrow..God willing!!Am so cold am so am ....so cold!..I catch cold....!!!

Hope Rekindled!

Am a nut for"quotes"..always have been.It's amazing how it suddenly became the"in-thing"and it makes me feel like I've joined the wagon.Everywhere I look these days,there's some quote somewhere.Well,I guess it's high time people realised the power"of words"....that's considering they don't just read but practice it.But I've always loved quotes,just not something I brag about though.I get inspired,motivated and enlivened by them.And I always wish they come in-handy when am gloomy.
Ok,since am counting down,I guess I need to mention that my exams're nine days away now.Boy am I nervous?Well,like I said,I wish those quotes could come in more"handy", because what I've been doing's going down memory lane,ruminating and reminiscing about my High School and College days.I really can…
