Hello and welcome back to my blog! It’s been an exciting 21 days doing this challenge.
Today’s Challenge: Read a Classic
At first I was going to read Western classics written by the likes of Charles Dickens or Jane Austen. But as I looked at my book shelf, I saw the famous ‘Things Fall Apart’ by Chinua Achebe which I had been procrastinating.
I first thought, hey, this is easy; I’d write a book. But I had started that project long before now, and I hope to complete it soon . So for this challenge, I thought of something else! Something more daring. Something that would challenge me to get it done.
One day you’ll wake up with a smile on your face. Your alarm clock would not disrupt your 7-hour sleep streak and you’ll feel more refreshed than ever. You’ll look at your empty to-do-list, and instead of feeling like an underachiever, you’ll feel hopeful. For in that blank page, you know there are endless possibilities!
But first, you must believe in the magic of new beginnings.
Woman. I only started understanding the gravity of that word as I transitioned to a young adult. She embodies what most of us will never fully comprehend. Her strength is subtle, yet evident. She goes through so many changes in all areas of life. She makes nature complete. Without her, there is no continuation of the human race.
I was trying to board a bus heading to work during the morning rush hours in Lagos. At first, none were going my way. Then when they were, other people would rush in. One particular incident had my frustration brimming to the surface. It was the last seat, and technically it would have been mine, but some dude just rushed in and took it. Now, in Lagos, the violent take it by force. Lol.
I wonder, in a world where it is the survival of the fittest, what happens to the patient dogs? Are they left with the bone because all the meat was already taken?
