Starting afresh…

I just moved to a new apartment. Manageable space, for now. Plumbing not so good (manageable too), power supply pretty much the usual (intermittent). It’s a welcome change from communal living though, and I’m thankful to God for meeting me at my point of need.

On a very positive note, my lady’s moved in with me :-). She makes the house a home. I’d never have done it this good without her. Talk about multiple blessings.

The Yule tide is in, and I’ll be spending it here in the port city. Job commences in 2014, and I hope it helps us move forward with our dreams and aspirations.

Gotta go have lunch now. Signing off.

The “Re” culture…

From personal life, to science and technology, it seems to me the habit of “not debugging”, or rather, not systematically seeking the source of a problem, and hence, a probable solution, is predominant. Instead, all that’s done is “reset”, or “reboot”, or “reinstall”.

From relationships, to work projects, to entrepreneurship endeavors, the same habit is exhibited by a lot of my peers, and even myself! (Up till the point I became aware of it). Knowing it now makes it even more daunting a task….

With constant practice though, I know I’ll imbibe this new way of getting things done.

May God bless my efforts, and yours too.

Cheers.

Life, after school, as I see it.

As a guy in Nigeria, just done with the NYSC (after school, yes), I’m a bit disappointed in the way the “older ones” dem it fit to prepare us For life after school.

It’s completely antiquated! I’ll share here a few of the lines I’ve familiarized myself with:

“Just get a good result, and you’ll be fine :-)”
“Finish school, get a job, get married, have kids”
“If you don’t get good grades, you’ll be a failure in life”

Here’s the thing…there’s a lot more to life in general than what we’re supposedly “taught” at school, and must parents aren’t sharing these very important truths….and experiences.

I’ll be sharing mine from time to time via this blog space…As a record for moi, and as a means of reaching out to others with similar experiences or challenges.

I hope this works.

See you/me at the next post, and cheers.
