Good morning great Young mind.. Whats cracking? Whats popping?? I mean whats the freaking 411??? Mehn as I type this yeah, I am so freaking sleepy sha, as in my eye lids are closing as if 2 magnets were attracting them together :(. I had to do the 8-5 yesterday, Yep.. on a Sunday.. and this was so I can meet up with one crazy dead line oh, so you see my Monday started Yesterday :(.. I mean how more annoying can life be? **Whispers I am thinking of applying for a raise oh! Haba, I cannot be WAHALAing and the others be chopping the money nah (Abeg put me in your prayers eh), oh well.. It is well oh! Cause “”Say we no ride Range Rover Vogue or use I phone 6 today doesn’t mean we wont use it tomorrow nah”” #Grateful. So how was your weekend? Hope you turned up oh! Hope you balled? :p
The 14- FOR-14 Challenge initiated by my Beautiful ghen-ghen Blog mother is in its 9th month (and i am like already???), hence we have about 3 more monthly posts to go, and then 1 more jara post, and it’s a wrap from all of us. To say that I am sincerely grateful for the challenge, cause it helps me write from my heart is to say the least.. **Whispers and **Wears straight face… you see ehn, I cannot afford to over Jonse on 14-For-14 posts eh, if not ehn, my own e haf finish, my Blog mother will just kih me **Smiles @Janyl Benyl. She wants the best for me all time every time, and that includes character wise, so I always imagine her giving me “”THE LOOK”” when I over talk about women on a post. Soooo... on this Post: NO WOMAN TALK.
So... Memories… Doesn't life scare you? Doesn't it amaze you how just yesterday we were running about in our diapers, and now we are the ones
about to be buying diapers? Life
through my eyes is a bloody imbalance, as it freaking confuses me. Someone
said NONSO I hope your girlfriend will straighten up your life oh, cause you
are confused a lot, and I laughed so hard.. Oh well, I gues it’s a huge part of
my persona. (NO WOMAN TALK)
One of the fondest of memories i have was when I was 5. I remember saying these exact words to my mother one night while i laid on her lap (That woman like me shaaaa that time) I said:
""Mum when i grow up, I will have BIG MONEY, and I will buy you a Limousine ” (** in Jilda's voice, my eyes got all teary as I wrote this sha, I miss her)
You see in my 22 years 9 months, so many people have come and gone in my life. Girlfriends have disappeared cause I wasn’t Rich enough, friends have gone AWOL for the most insignificant of reasons, and women I trust the most have walked out of my life. Its not like anyone died yeah, but they just left. Maybe my name ADOLPHUS (meaning Royal Wolf) comes to play here, and maybe that’s why they always just leave, as per: Lone wolf kinda lifestyle now... I don’t really know. But the thing is just as I never forgot the words I said to my Mother when I was 5, I never ever forget people who came and left my life, as every single person played a role in making me. Some made me cry, some made me laugh, some broke my heart, some stole my heart,
some chop my money :) and didint call back after the first date, but all in all they
all exist only in my memory now, cause many of them I will never see again.
On my way home yesterday, it re-struck me that someday, all I will be is a MEMORY just like others are to me, I mean a figment of one’s imagination, a thought pattern. Oneday someday when this my ghen-ghen life is over, when my heart stops to beat, and when my Mr Nigeria smile vanishes, all I will be is a THOUGHT. Damn! That scares the hell outta me eh! Since these thoughts hit me yeah, I have constantly asked myself, what kind of a memory will I be? What kind of thoughts will I trigger when I am gone? Will my memory be one to create a smile on a sad face, or one that makes one frown at the thought of me? Will I trigger pain, anger, hatred, tears and anguish, or will I trigger love and peace? I can only wonder.
The Truth is I don’t know, but what I know for sure is that the day of my
wait oh! why am I personalizing this Dying
thing? the day of OUR going is coming, :p, and when we are gone, if we do not live a positive mark
on a life, if we do not inspire someone to be better, to think better, to act
better, to not give up on love and on life, if we do not make our lives count
for something, then I guess we won’t end up as a memory after all, but we would
just be a Rest in Peace prayer point. So today as you go into this week, I implore,
NO! I beg you to make your every action
count, and make sure that you keep making a difference. I beg you great Young
mind that we live each day like its our last, cause someday, someday we will most
definitely be right (Steve Jobs). I beg you to please choose to NOT live for
you alone, but to devote your lifetime to an idea, to a worthy cause, to a
positive and worthy fight. Yep, I know... Money is priority, but when we go
yeah, the money will stay behind, REMEMBER?
Permit me to leave you with these words i read somewhere a while back, it went something like this:
"People will forget what you said to them, they will forget what you did to them, but they will never forget how you made them feel. The memory you inspire will outlive you."
P.S: YOU HAVE ONE SHOT AT LIFE, ONE OPPORTUNITY ON EARTH, ONE SINGLE CHANCE TO LIVE, PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR LIFE. In other news.. one of my most ghen ghen Bloggers: Toinlicious is back on Blogsville eh, she went AWOL sinceeee 19-kokoro.. that geh ehnn.. She bad like that oh!
Oya Woman Talk: Dear Blog mother, forgive me Mother for I have sinned, i had to add woman talk :)… Mehn is it me or is it BLOOOOODDDYYYY HARD!!! To be in a relationship? Do you know how much credit I used last week, and all through the TOASTING period? Mehn Street is military oh! Kai! On some days yeah, I grumble to the Airtime Dealers as I go to buy call card, and I am like, How the hell am I supposed to save at this rate. Anyhow sha, shey na me go find trouble.
So me and Landlady are 8 days today, and trust me, we have fought and tire. Truly I applaud her for being such a lady through the process sef, cause me I can complain for Africa shaaa.. One day I will call her and be like Babe why Haven't you raised Lazarus from the dead :p. But trust me, the singular reason
okay let me not lie one of the reasons why we are still together is she is my best friend,
and aint nothing better than that.
Thank you so much for the past 7 minutes of your time great young mind, you give me a reason to keep writing, and to wanna become a better man. May GOD bless you eh, and may your children not resemble your neighbor. My prayer for you this week is that you will not wear a suede shoe, or Brazilian hair on the next day that Lagos rain will fall cat, dog and elephant.
Do have a Ghen-ghen week Fam. You guys are why we are here, aswear.
