Catching up..

It's funny how you think you know yourself..until you keep discovering as you grow older. Am not proud to admit that I procrastinate and am just discovering it. I used to think otherwise,perhaps,things changed over time. I'm usually being accused of being 'too compliant' and somewhat 'too serious-minded'.I think I probably used to be,but becoming a wife and consequently mother of two hasn't amde things any easier. I've found myself putting off so many things I naturally would have done before even making the announcement in the past.I usually don't do things halfway,but it's what I do a lot these days.Which brings me to the issue of my prospective Books.....yes,'Books' because I intend to write two different ones,randomly or selectively. I have given many excuses that I am begining to think I'd never get this book written if I do not continue. ....I also just realised I've been using the word'start' all along,meanwhile,I started already two years back.I think this just goes to show how disconnected and distracted I have been. And today,thank goodness I studied seriously,something I had been a laid-back at for a little while...time mismanagement was another factor. I was so distracted that I decided to get a little life outside my 'cubicle'. ..spending more time on the Internet isn't something I do,but I deliberately chose to do so while my mind was heavy with some other non-academic matters. But am back on track now..Huh! mentioning school made someone ask of my age...! Well,what can I say? Some of us didn't have it on a platter of gold...not even born with a silver spoon.But thank God, am still here!
I almost convinced myself that wanting to do so many things at the same time is the reason I haven't really done much, but that isn't true.I can multi-task,I do it if I choose to. So it's no excuse at all. And I have resolved to manage my time well and not wait until the end of my Course to write more Poems or continue with these books,God willing. I won't suspend it any longer..Why the wait? Besides, if I need anything that isn't within my reach,I'd just skip that part and keep on writing.I also had problems deciding which one to begin with, but I think I'd just go with the flow and not force myself into a particular routine.Whichever one comes to mind first.I may even be writing randomly.....anything that suits me fine ,my terms,my book!
I miss my dad,donno why...imagine,do I need a reason to miss my dad?Well,the obvious isn't stated here.....!!!I should give him a call.

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
