Wow, how long has it been? It’s being quite a more than a minute since I posted on this platform right? Yeah. Don’t get me wrong, I had a total of three dated posts ready for publication. Although I had well researched and typed them, there were not me! I had constructed them in a way that the Google SEO analysis requires and which is a way I had been trying to avoid from the very beginning.
There were formal and boring, something even myself wouldn’t read till the very end if I were to come across it in the search engines. My posts should radiate my colourful personality in such a way that when a stranger reads any of them they would 100% feel like they’ve known me for years, they are not to succumb to what Google requires. #IamARebellion. In this post, I am taking you with me on a memory lane of 2020 lessons that I am taking with me through the already present 2021.
Being A Univenien
Univen being a place that I had never imagined myself enrolling with not in a million years, I must say it had to be amazing. Unlike many universities that are industrial and economic activities based Univen is a university built by the people for the people. I have also met people who currently are dear to me that I never wanna lose.
Moving so far away from home has also being a breath of fresh air as well as an experience because unlike my semi-fast hometown Bela Bela, Thohoyandou is very calm. The weekly rainfalls that I complain about are truly refreshing, the way of life in such that whereas we use flushing toilets they still use pit toilets in most parts of the town was bizarre for me. I also have learnt that physical classes are truly unnecessary as I have been educating myself with the resources they have given us and truly universities are just for fun.
In all my years as a Christian, there isn’t a year that I have devoted my whole being to doing what God wants with my life like this year. Hence Jesus Christ has been the main motivator of this site. It is truly beautiful. Though I have known of His existence before, nothing has assured me of His presence in everything I do like this year. I swear if I go on, I will fill this entire post with just this section.
Yah nne! Good financial skills are very necessary when you become independent with only one source of income. Like books, you can never have enough money. You always want more. I have been praying hard to God for financial freedom and literacy, I pray the same blessing falls upon y’all, because ku rweff bafwethu.
Show of hands, who had a good dating year? I know my hand is not up. If I could only add emoticons!! In just a year I have dated M, S, T, T and another T. Said dated, not kissed or slept with. Mjolo is not for the weak. Truly all I am going to say is, ladies, please do not under any circumstances lower your standard for a man. At the end of the day he will show you why men are unnecessary and the pits. It is not worth it. Lower your standards for one man and that is your son, not a grown man who has his own mother.
The year 2020 has proven in so many ways that life belongs to God and God alone. We might desire riches, wealth, fancy homes and cars, designer clothes, and all that life throws at us, but truly all we want is to breath and a healthy body to carry us through life. In 2021 live, live your lives, write down that unrealistic resolutions list, go to restaurants, travel, taste new things, wear that tight dress, do your nails, get a piercing, get a tattoo, get another source of income and then jolani, date until you find what you truly desire. I hope and pray that above it all that y’all remain happy. May all the things God has ordained upon your life this year find their way to you. May each and every evil plan orchestrated against your life come to fail, may your enemies change and meet God’s glory and salvation. Years may come and go but He still remains. Jesus Christ is still our Lord and our Saviour. You matter. Adios.
