What do I do when I’m not writing? Wow that’s a big one, when I came across this daily prompt a lot of things came running through my mind but few stuck around. When I’m home with my family I do a lot of chores and run errands for my parents and some personal things for myself. My life would be boring if it just follows that routine, I try to make it productive by adding value to other peoples life cause it gives me Joy. I love traveling and visiting friends. Apart from building my personal relationship with God daily by reading his word and communing with him, I love to read. I read a lot, mostly novels. I could spend hours trying to finish a book, it doesn’t matter where I find myself, I just don’t care so much what people may say, I mean when they find me in a very funny or awkward place. I could be in a noisy surrounding but I beerly notice cause I’m nose deep in the book. I read different genres,
I remember the time I went shopping ( Novel shopping ) Cause I needed to keep myself occupied, I picked some books without reading the bulb cause they were relatively cheap, I loved the volume and the scent.(Imagine that!!!!). It was not until I got home and after awhile decided to go through them and realized they were mostly talking about ghosts, Strange ( extraordinary ) miracles and were mostly true stories. Then I wondered, wow what where you thinking? , I enjoyed them though.
Secondly another thing that get the best of my time is my thoughts… I am a deep thinker with vast imaginations sometimes I wonder if that’s odd.
It’s a text, text, text, text, world. I hear a lot of people say the world is a global village and yes it’s true. We communicate to people several miles away with just a message on social media platforms or any other conventional method. For one I love it but it has it negative and positive side. For me as a person I love texting but I don’t let it get the better part of me, i. e I don’t get too caught up in it , such that I forget the real world . I remember sometimes I have
communicated with several persons and they sometimes fail to decipher or misunderstand and hence fail to get the message. For instance recently I was chatting with a friend and I typed Ji ( I wanted to type Hi) but I had already sent the message before I realized my mistake, I later typed Hi as a correction. Fortunately let me not say unfortunately he’s name begins with J. He replied Ri (my name begins with R) and then the next message was Hi and I wondered within me- He must have thought I wanted to shorten his name or something I can’t quite figure out what this something is but clearly he hadn’t realized it was a typographical error. So he went with the flow. Another issue is emotions; while texting emotions are not clearly expressed or rather put not sincerely expressed for some individuals. Yeah someone would say, what about the emoji’ ? The emoji are always available but some use this medium ( emoji ) to miscommunicate information, lying about what they truly intend to express. I try my possible best to be honest and sincere when using online platforms and try to be open and honest. Technology is here to stay, the best we can do to make the world better is to be sincere when making use of this platforms. On the positive side it helps convey messages fast .
Back in school from my first year in the university i believed that doing my best would earn me a spot at the top of the class and amidst my colleagues at large. I started studying hard, I became diligent and disciplined and I excelled. As time and months passed by I got engaged in a lot of activities, this activities were not bad but academically I began to lose focus, gradually I lost my place. Thanks be to God and my ever challenging friends and colleagues I picked up and tried to earn back my spot but the disciplined character I lost at a fast rate was not easy to regain back immediately.
I was no longer excelling as I use too, most times I’ll tell myself one more step, more hard work and you’ll be there while my program was coming to completion, I realized that the effort I’m putting in now would have been best done earlier. Twill have better. Let your best effort be now else you’ll be late and disappointed by the outcome.
