Just as the title says…
Just before I continue I’d like you to know I took a break from blogging because I’m the world’s laziest and /or nonchalant kid! Too lazy to make a blogpost…that’s how lazy Libras get.
Back to the bone of contention, Out of Control, obviously, this is one of those personal stories I usually tell.
So my life is in contention and it SEEMS to be running out of control.
I’m just the average college kid looking for the ‘big break’ in life, but things seem to be falling apart. The biggest problem I’m facing right now is I just can’t seem to read nowadays! I open my books & zzzzzz….I’m dozing off!
It may seem funny but if you’ve slept 7hours straight, you open your book & you start dozing again, there’s a problem somewhere.
Another thing that’s causing great harm to my sanity is my appetite. Its safe to say a loaf of bread can’t move me! I eat 3-4 Indomie super packs! I can down 1 ‘DeRica’ of garri! I’ve spent six thousand CFA on just my self in a regular eatery(buka type) and now my monthly allowance can’t last a week even when I don’t drink, smoke or spend on girls!
I’ve always been the stubborn type but these days telling me what to do is just a way of preventing me from doing it! I just can’t seem to take orders without looking for alternative routes or ‘shortcuts’.
I’m also a twitter-addict, a troublesome person & a terrible talkative amongst the evil habits that terrorize me!
But as a saying goes, the first step to solving a problem(or a couple of problems) is detecting it(or them).
One big challenge that is a threat to most youths is lack of focus and discipline! We are fond of characterizing these words as ‘nerdy’ & ‘holy’ but believe me the greatest person one can subdue is him/herself. We all need to start putting certain habits of ours to the sword. We also need to know what we want so we can focus on it. How can one live in this modern age and still live day-to-day? Seriously, HOW? How can a normal person have no vision? Doesn’t it sound retarded? We all need to picture ourselves in a couple of decades & work towards it.
I’m the one who needs this advice actually but a few people could also make due with a couple of things from this.
Just as I like my things, this article is unrehearsed and is what I call a FREESTYLE…if I tried writing it down before posting it, my perfectionist nature will lead me to deleting the whole thing….
