Yaay! Let's get it started!

For some days now, I've been racking my brain on what a first blog post should look like. It's a personal blog, a freestyle thing and all that but still, I kept racking my brain.
I finally decided to just pick up my pen and write whatever comes to me.
So, looking around me, I can't find anything to inspire a write-up. I picked up a souvenir from a company and their Mission Statement reads "We commit ourselves to people over things" and as I was about to question it, I remembered a message I once listened to. I ruminated on it and there and then, I decided it was worth sharing.
I can't recollect the topic of the message but I do remember some part of it. The two major points I can remember are "You don't stumble into your future, you create it." and "Be person oriented not things oriented". Deep I must say.
I wish I still have the message but life happened so I don't. I'm just going to write down the way I interpreted it to myself and how I feel almost everyone can relate.
We all have that dream asset; cars, positions, apartments and the likes. Why not let all these chase you and not the other way round? For example, you work in a multimillionaire company and there's this position everyone 'longthroats' for including you. Why don't you put that position aside first and work on yourself. Work towards having all the requirements expected of whoever is to occupy that office. Before long, the Board of directors or whoever is in charge will notice you even before you voice out your interest.
Work on yourself, do the right things and it'll only be natural that you possess the latest car and you live in an area that houses the creme de la creme of the society.
"Only through focus can you do world-class things, no matter how capable you are "- Bill Gates
Let's endeavour not to be slaves to materials but rather be their masters. The speaker used himself as an example when he said he was just doing his own thing ; speaking, touching lives and all that when fame came after him. He said if his main objective had been just to make money, he'd have given up way too early. Of course, he wanted to make money but his love for what he was doing was greater than that of money so giving up wasn't an option.
Ugh, it's really been long I listened to the message and it would have been way better if I could quote some of the speaker's salient points. Nevertheless, I know someone reading this gets the message I'm trying to pass across.
Okay, so that's it! My first blog post. I'll like to know what you feel about the whole person and things oriented thingy. Your comment means a lot to me. Thanks. xxx.

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job.
He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is …

The Packing Series: Clothes And Everything in between..

I'm here picturing myself on the receiving end of this content and wondering if I would prefer it as a written or visual content. I'm tilting towards visual but nevertheless, I'm still putting together a written one.
Packing is stressful guys. Oh, I already said that in my last post but I just have to state it again, for the culture.

Clothes

This was not as boring as I had anticipated. Probably because I did it at night and many boxes were checked (pun unintended!). It was 10pm, I had just finished seeing a movie, there was light, I'm naturally a night owl. Check, check. I'm definitely not here to talk about folding and categorizing clothes so, there's not much to talk about. What lesson(s) did I learn? Well, bracing the odds of going ahead with packing my clothes instead of lazing in bed and on social media that night made me realize and relearn that if you ever get the urge to do something in a particular moment, then you should do it. Someone pops into your…
