Whatever is worth doing…..

Hello beautiful people, in a bid to kill off my lazy side I decided to challenge myself a little, a post every Thursday; that’s the deal I made. Now, I’m just going to start from the beginning. I’ve always had an issue with people doing things half way or not doing things right ESPECIALLY when they have the ability to. Don’t get me wrong I’m soooo not a perfectionist, I’m very far from it.

Let’s put it this way, it’s only RATIONAL that if you “know” you do not have the capacity to carry out a task right or see a task through to the end, then there’s no need taking it on in the first place. Like, starting construction on a road and leaving it half way. As a result, seriously inconveniencing and posing serious danger to road users (which is what prompted this post). Construction has been on for not less than 24 months on a road that leads to my humble abode. On my way home this fateful day, the bus driver decided to drop me off before my actual stop because of the hellish traffic. Well, unknowingly I walked right into quicksand. To cut the long story short, I got home without shoes that day. This goes without saying, I’m holding the Lagos state governor responsible and thus he owes me a pair of shoes!

Whatever they say is worth doing at all is worth doing well/right. I was in SS3 when my form teacher used this line on me and honestly I felt very “one kind“. I was to clean the class windows that day, I had been skipping it for weeks and luckily there were others to do it. Unfortunately for me, that day I was on my own, I wiped the windows haphazardly and left it. Basically because my heart wasn’t in it and also because the first period was about to start. Well on my form teacher’s orders, I had to re-wipe the windows during the first period (I kinda felt embarrassed). In any case I took that incident to heart and I cleaned every window and swept any portion of the class I was given with all my heart, soul, blood, sweat and spirit after that. What I learnt was simple, there’s no need doing something at all if you aren’t going to do it right, and if you can do it right, do it right the first time.

It is quite simple, if you “know” you can’t do it right, then don’t do it at all. If you can’t swim through a river to the end, there’s no need jumping into the river in the first place. If you can’t drive don’t bother getting behind the wheels. If you can’t care for more than two kids with your present income, go for family planning after the second kid. If you can’t stay faithful to your partner, remain single. If you can’t rule a local government area, state or country properly, kindly do not contest for the position. If you know you plan to play when you get into the university, please do not waste your parent’s money, learn a trade.

Also if you can do it right, then the responsibility is on you to do it right. Having this at the back of our minds before we undertake any tasks will make the world a better place (for me to rule; when I’m ready to start ruling) and will hopefully keep me from losing any more shoes.

DO NOT NEGLECT THE “DROP A COMMENT SECTION”.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK: BE GOOD BE TRUE AND GIVE TO THOSE WHO LACK. XOXO

Hello brethren, I’m here again and today its going to be all about me!!! Few weeks back my friend and sister Esther of The way Esther sees it blog tagged me in a blog challenge, but as usual, laziness has had the better part of me. I’m required to write 20 very random facts about my very own self. The essence of this is to enable our readers know more about us. So, here goes;

1) I am funny.

2) I absolutely love movies. Detective fiction (homicides preferably) would forever be my first choice. Medical drama, legal drama and Con movies (leverage, hustle et al) would stand in second place. I’m no fan of “mindless” comedy (a perfect example being all them Mr. Ibu and Osofia movies).

3) I have a profound phobia for animals; especially CHICKENS!!!!

4) The most attractive features in the opposite sex for me would be, dimples and gap teeth (not window biko).

5) If I could be absolutely anything in the world, I would be a sniper.

6) I do not want a Ferrari I want a truck. A toyota tundra 2014 will be just fine!

7) I hate crossing roads.

8) My favourite physical feature would be my large eyes.

9) I’m quite razz. If my parents weren’t my parents, I would probably be a tout.

10) If I ever decide to leave my house to go out with you especially with public transport, then I must have either cancelled too many times, or I must really really like you.

11) I over think “everything” i.e headache = brain tumor.

12) I love rap music. Favourite rappers being Eminem, Lupe fiasco and M.I. I used to love Kanye.

13) I could sleep all day and not feel bad about it, this goes without saying I love beds and comfortable couches and yes I’m “relatively” lazy; emphasis on relatively.

14) I love football. I’m a die hard FC Barcelona fan. I’m also a die hard Lionel MESSI (god of football) fan.

Lionel-Messi

15) In as much as I hate to admit this, I am a webaholic; complete Internet junkie.

16) My favorite food would be between starch with banga or egusi, plantain with owò and beans with dodo (fried ripe plantain)

17) Ironing is one thing I despise doing! I can pay you anything to help me iron.

18) I enjoy pounding yam; yes! mortar and pestle not yam pounder abi pounding machine(whichever it is called).

19) I am very impatient, one of the worst things you could ever ask me to do is to get in a queue.

20) I like big clothes, I find them extremely comfortable.

Also, i can argue with you from now till next year if I believe i’m right.
