Hi everyone, whew!!! After being away from this blogosphere for a long time, i think apologies should be in order. I am soooo sorry. I dont know what happened or why i hung my pen..i just got carried away with other activities that i almost forgot my blog family. Again, i am so sorry. Friends have tryed to bring me back, all to no avail. until yesterday that i had a discussion with my longtime friend, tynukehbadmus and she kinda encouraged me to be back. This is going to be just a random post so pardon my incoherent thoughts.
I dont know why, but i have been more reserved lately. Just kinda observing life. I wonder if am still normal. Friends complain i dont put pictures on my dp, they dont see my face, i dont post comments on facebook..etc
Well, the older you grow, the more your perspective shift and the more you see life in a new direction. And the crux of the matter is – i am internet shy. I don’t really like the spotlight. Blogging notwithstanding, i am hardly visible on social media. I love twitter though.
Wow! Some exciting things happened in 2014. Yeah, part of which is the fact that am back in the classroom. I can’t believe i didnt gist you guys about the happenings in my study environment. Yeah, there are cool dudes in my class..mostly adamus and yakubus. If you have been an ardent reader of this blog, you’d know who the adamus are. For the sake of hindsight, i once referred to handsome hausa guys as adamus.
I have met some really great personalities in that environment. They are some of the nicest or kindest set of individuals i’ve ever come across. Coming from a sterotyped environment where every kind act is seen as an opportunity for someone to harm you, seek for undue friendship, take advantage of you or do something silly, i was at first wary of appreciating these kindness until i realised it was genuine. To shock me further, these people have often been termed religious bigots, biased, selfish etc but i never saw any religious undertone or hidden agenda.
Now, i practically live in two cities, farther up on the map. My greatest constraint is still electricity and in case you are wondering, yes..am in naij. The kids in my compound still shout “up Nepa”, forty something years after independence. Part of my weird nature is that i hate generators because of the noise. I suffered the noise mostly back in the days when i lived in my “father’s sprawling edifice” and my room was directly facing the gen house. Now, i have to suck my pride.
My eyes are heavy as am typing this..so i guess i should be back tomorrow to continue.
