Almost relationships suck

 I was just beginning to know him, we had lunch once (just junk though) and it was amazing. I felt totally connected to him, you know, ‘the chemistry’, ‘when you know you know’, ‘the sparks’ all that kinda stuff that goes on when the heart overpowers the mind but then the worst happened, out of nowhere he stopped picking up my calls, he stopped replying my messages although I could see the blue ticks (still weighing the importance of this). He just vanished into thin air. kalash, kaboom, I really don’t know the sound to describe how people you care about just disappear.

Dear ex, (oh you are an ex to me, not really an ex-boyfriend but just ex something) your departure hurt so much, it left me with so many questions. Did I eat too loudly? did I do something? is my accent horrible? did you lie about being single? do you still think about me?

I remember the first time you said you loved me, I didn’t reply right away because I had to figure out exactly where we were and when I finally revealed how I felt to you, for me you truly meant something to me and I wanted us to stay that way just to be disappointed knowing I didn’t really mean that much to you.

Funny how we had followed each other online and had synced our activities expecting to experience so much together. Now every time I see you on my timeline it hurts a little more and I know I should unfollow you already but that’s all am left to hold onto and unfollowing you will mean I completely give up on you which won’t be happening anytime soon.

My pride won’t let me text you anymore but whenever you text me I will Surely respond. 

I miss you ex-something.

No Oven Doesn’t Mean No Pizza

Baking Pizza on a Jiko

How many are craving for pizza and dying to make their own but just don’t have an oven? Well, here’s a solution .Above is an illustrated image with labeling that represents one alternative way of baking pizza.
This is one of the most convenient ways of baking your pizza without having to worry about abrupt power cuts, increased power bills at the end of the month or even your gas running out in the middle of your baking. When opting to use this method, it is important for you to note that the charcoal being used has to be glowing and not flaming. This reduces the chance of the crust burning since the baking tray is directly exposed to the hot charcoal below in the jiko. The charcoal placed below the tray is usually less than the one being placed on top of the inverted sufuria. Another thing to note is that, the jiko door is shut to prevent quick combustion and the hot charcoal should be evenly spread both on top and below for even baking.
This is a clear example of the saying “Necessity is the mother of invention”.

 

Graduation culture craze.

Friday 14th ,joy,smiles and even tears marked this day.For many it was  a once in a lifetime experience.It also dawned on many that being in campus was not just a formality but a privilege.

Graduation has become  a culture.A way of living experienced by most people in this generation.Family &friends tag along to mark this milestone in your academic life in pomp and colour, but the crazy of it all is the job market .

I’ve heard students say ‘am studying but theres  no job  opportunity for me’ . I totally  disagree .  The bible states ‘out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh’ so when you believe  that there isn’t a job  for you ,not even a change in the order of nature can change your destiny.Your perception drives you to birth new ideas that fill an  niche in the job market.Its pointless to keep doing the same thing and expecting different results.So try a different approach  and you’ll have a different testimony .

Given the power to read and do all that pertains to your degree,dare to be different after all it doesn’t hurt.Graduation is a milestone that only means you have a longer journey ahead so don’t cut it short before getting to the destination.
