HELP! Is My Head Still On?


Each day of this past week did not pass without the feel of “is my head still on?” And I came to realise that there are heads and there are heads. Or better put, there are brains and there are brains. Little wonder why some people greatly excel and it seem some are struggling it out, while some cannot even raise their heads. I summarized, it is the extent of the engagement of our brains.

Knowledge is wider than our existence, so Learning is unending and must be deliberate. I paused and thought; what ever informed us that going to the conventional schools is what learning is all about? Are you kidding me! That must be a great lie from the pit of hell (grinned). Right now, my colleagues and I think it is even a waste of time especially in this part of the world. And when they say “knowledge is power,” I bet you it can never be overemphasized. When it is well appropriated, the result is massive, money will just be catching up. Acquiring it is one thing, appropriating it is another.

Time, uhmm I understand well now when they say “time is money.” Beyond the literal meaning, it explains that time is more valuable, than we tend to act on it. And I have waste a whole lot of it, I wished I could get those years back. I know better now and still in pursue of more knowledge. What I preach to young people had a new twist, especially when I see them whiling away their time with frivolities they esteem important, at least I have a story to tell because I have been there before.

Back to this brain thing, I felt so terrible, sweating under air conditional with some daring headache, after a session at the Google office. You know that feel when you suddenly realise you have not been using your brain well or to full capacity. And I asked myself severally; “Am I living at all? What have I been doing with my life?” I should address my mindset and tend towards positivity more, expand my knowledge and make my world work. Guys are turning out great and amazing ideas, concepts, building life structures that will surely make you pause and think. And they are achieving this much not because they have money, in fact most of them did not even trade with money, but their intellectual property. I guess I should stop here, before the headache starts all over.

Well, for me to write all these, I think my head is still on, just that my brain needs some flushings, I need space. Some formatting and reinstalling. Never mind, I’ve got a back up for the important stuffs in it.

LOVE’S ENTHUSIASM


​There’s a rumble in my tummy but it’s not hunger pangs neither is it dysmenorrhea or constipation; I’m falling in love. I can’t seem to fathom how and when this happened, he’s got me drawn to his personality; every day and every time I try to get an understanding of who he is, I get drawn to him further. I understand better what Sinach meant when she sang “the more I know you, the more I want to know you”. I can hardly sleep these days, I’m either pondering on what I just found out about my love or trying to find out more; it’s like he follows me everywhere I go because even while I’m walking, talking, eating, boarding a bus I keep seeing him around. I find him so irresistible and I can’t stand it anymore. I’ve found some people that are experienced in this kind of love affairs, they are training me on how to love him better and maximize this love to yield pleasant results. There are also lots of people who having been through this kind of love took the initiative of writing their experiences both good and bad to the benefit of upcoming lovers like myself, I’m trying to exploit that as well.

My love life is quite complicated like a few other love affairs in our society, I get to sacrifice a few things to satisfy my lover like my four month old job, a few meals, my sleep and most of all my laziness but my dear lover is also enduring and patient with me to learn to love him at my own pace, the opportunity to love him is one of the sweetest things that has ever happened to me and he has enough room for my many flaws and even when I feel stupid, inferior and unworthy, he has a way of encouraging me to keep on.

My love is very vast and it seems I can’t comprehend him but he knows I can be versatile if I want but he’d be glad if I could just love him in my own way be it wide-angled or otherwise as long as I can focus and compose. He says I should use the right speed to allow just enough illumination so I don’t get under-exposed or super-exposed results. As expensive as my love’s family may be to maintain, they are the most accommodating and friendly I’ve met lately; because of their luxurious nature my parents had not supported my decision at first but after much persuasion and my determination I succeeded in acquiring their support to a reasonable extent.

He tends to improve himself always so I don’t get bored of doing the same thing all the time, lately he told me that he could make me see things in 360o, I thought that’d be creepy would I have to turn my head all 360o as well. He told not to worry that I’d be pleased with the results and viola just the way he said it, it happened. All I have to do is chose what I want to see per time. In essence I have control of what I’m seeing. I’m not that perfect, I’m surely not to going to doubt the love he reciprocates towards me anymore, though it may seem difficult anytime I try understanding him.

He’s told me I can use him to influence my world and that’s just superb, all I need do is make him  understand what he has to do and with my creativity and skill we can positively influence the world we found ourselves in. I’m super excited about my new love and even though it took a while for me to break up with my first love, I’ve not regretted anything so far.
