Life is a teacher...

The way I deal with things are different. Call it a case of different strokes for different folks. Some may call me a pessimist, but I know better! In this life, count on no one but your self (after God, that is). I saw it coming, I knew I may likely lose the registration for this Semester. I just prepared myself for the worse that could happen. Am supposed to be at an advantage now, considering that I would get my study materials in about two week’s time, God willing. And it gives me a long pace of time to study ahead for the exams. But then again, that’s a question of other factors, like getting the prescribed books on time. I am not a lay-back; I just do not force things to happen, I push when I think it’s worth a try. I don’t give up on what really matters, the ones that are really important and inexcusable. But others that may be determined by human factors especially. I may just relinquish without much fight. People disappoint, they mostly do. So why put all your hopes in one bas…

Before a 'writer' is born...

Each time I read profiles of Writers,established and renowned authors,they seem to agree on one thing for a prospective writer-"just write".To be candid,till this very moment,I don't know how that works because I think it can also translate to writing rubbish.Okay,so am an ambitious, weary and worrying wart.I want many things but still want to give so much more.I don't want to set limits now.I get too deep in thoughts and sometimes have a stop-over where am not supposed to...like ugly pasts and regrets,irreparable loss and costly mistakes...But of what good are all these flashbacks and down memory lane if I can't relate it with the present or connect it with the future?I honestly can't even answer that question myself.I am an ardent and fanatical (in a good way though) reader of "Quotations,motivational/inspirational books and writings".I never hesitate once I see one,I just "read".I try to toss it round my head,relate with i…

My cousin left this morning, we miss her already...

My cousin left this morning, we miss her already. She just buzzed me some minutes ago, so that means she's landed safely. Thank God for His mercies. I didn't take my routine road today. The day already began hectic. We finally drove her to the Mall I had wanted her to go all this while- Greenstone Mall, Edenvale. Am glad even though it was unplanned, she still got to look around and have a different scenario. Plus, she got a few items she really liked. In short, it was worth our while. The kids were late for bed as we also dropped-by some friends' within the Edenvale neighbourhood. It was just a courtesy call and everyone was exhausted by the time we got home. I put the kids to sleep and finally got to have  alook at my Blackberry9800...it had been delivered a few hours ealier. It's about time!


I couldn't make dinner as it was late, so we the adults went to bed on an empty stomach. I didn't realise how tired I was until my eyes decided to be closing, even as I …
