Something Old, and something new

Do you ever get this feeling when you're entering a new phase in life? I do a lot... and it makes me feel very good when a part of it is familiar, and part of it is mysterious enough to make me believe that I'm in for a whole lot of enjoyment. Yee haawwwww!!!

On the plane crash of 10/29/06 in Nigeria

On this sad issue, I raise a few questions that run through the videos below.

  1. Why do we not learn from our mistakes of the past?
  2. Is it a conspiracy?
  3. Following #2, will there be more as the elections near?
  4. Can't corruption be completely hauled and tossed out the window in Nigeria?
  5. Are the methods and results of the "immediately ordered" investigation going to be the same as the results of other reports and investigations tendered to Mr. President? Null and void?
  6. Will the President, Senate, and House of Reps be ready to pass the needed laws ensuring that aircrafts which fly in Nigeria are 5 years old or less?

Too many questions arise.... But are we all willing to do what it takes to right the wrong?

Hectic week

I feel even worse than when I started. Can you imagine, I was just ready to publish today's blog and clicked on the spell checker, and all I had typed just hoo....
Anyway, all is not lost: my fingers still exist. :)

Midterms are officially over, but I fear that I did right badly. I just can't find the zest to do my work like earlier in the semester. That means time for a change in strategy. My midterm grades were far less than what I expected. They're not bad in themselves, but to have a 4.0 I need to get all A's right? Right; so I'll go ahead and restrategize and come up with a more effective plan to conquer the courses... Starting with a new timetable...boring but necessary.

Till I see you again. Most likely after the homecoming parade, which is on Saturday. The town is already getting full of people.

Daddy's girl....and Mummy's girl too

I spoke to my folks today. Things were getting too crowded in my head and I had to air the grey matter a bit. Two hundred sobs, and a thousand sniffles later, I was happy. I'm very grateful to God for giving me loving parents who always turn me to Him. I'm glad to know that I have a listening ear always...either from my mum and dad, or from my Heavenly father.

Hmmmm...Na so?

They say that its therapeutic to write.

Oh well, here I am; to perhaps ease my soul of its heaviness and free my mind of the innumerable musings which pass through it daily. I've been longing for an avenue to express myself and I'll take advantage of this medium until things become. I'm doing this on the spur of the moment, and soon my erratic albeit kind conservative nature will be revealed. In the meantime, let it be. :)
