Abstract Questions

On the side, I was just thinking, if we were to look back on our lives, if we were to rewind the tape of life to, let's say, last month, would it have unravelled how we planned it?
If we really looked at the plans we made, did everything happen the way we planned?
Did the garbage truck really show up at eight p.m.?
Did we really submit that proposal at the appointed time?
Did we meet the deadline for that project? Did church service finish at exactly noon last Sabbath?

Abstract questions they are but you could come up with yours.
Didn't you spend more than you intended on your last shopping spree?
Did you wait till the last minute before paying you tithe? (Maybe that's why).

There are so many days when you plan to carry out some duties and even create some free time, only to see so many things you planned to do fall under the 'I shall get back to these later' category, when certain things happen. Things like...

Your boss shifting another person's work to your table the second you resume at work because the person fell sick. Suddenly (yeah right).
Then he gives you yesterday as the deadline for submission.

Your car waiting till you had driven up to the middle of third mainland bridge, before deciding to go on strike.
And you are already late to work.

Your mother asking you to call her to remind her of something, only for you to get the job of pacifier again. and you must not rop the phone (God help you if the line cuts. There goes your credit anyway)

Need I go on? We always plan things one way, and then it seems to just fall apart. At the end of the day, your 'To-Do' list is full, and not one of the things you set out to accomplish has been done.
Personally, I think the root of the problem is simple. I have found out that when I don't start the day with God, it almost always falls apart. When I realize that I didn't no matter where I am, I take time out to pray. He created the day, and knows how it will turn out, so I hand it back to Him to steer it.
Simple answer to the Abstract questions.

EKITI KETE

What is this wahala now? Why must such a tiny state in Nigeria cause so much wahala? It is not even in the center, it is not even an original state but a cut out of another. I really dont understand why every newspaper feels they must print something about Ekiti on the front page every single day. And this has been the case since it was created. The latest sensation is the election rerun that even our busy President had to take time to go and see. I mean, you would think with all the monitoring eyes, everything would run smoothly but no, another twist in the saga has been announced.
The outside world thinks we should be ashamed of ourselves. I a just praying that it does not get bloody, and that Ekiti will stop trying to keep attention all the time.

Am not dissing Ekiti o[that was for Vicky who will soon be my husband, so he'll not quote me after the wedding - he's from Ekiti :D]. Am just saying they should behave themselves.

Ironblogging - Blogging a week at a time

One of the results of attending CMS Africa 2016 in Kampala, Uganda, was the creation of an Ironblogger network, IBCOCO. The intent was simple: there is a huge huge benefit from having an online presence, for every business, and blogging frequently is one of the ways to achieve this.

Plans List?Carried out or not?

Have you ever planned the next year of your life and then after a few months, realized that nothing went according to plan? Well it happened to me. Back in October, I knew where I wanted to be in a year's time: I was going to be married, with my husband and I studying in a foreign country for masters degrees. We had applied and then things began to happen.
First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.

Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us …
