I want to be a pilot!

We all have those little ambitious siblings, nephews, nieces; children…name them, who will often bombard you with their dreams. Some aspire to be a neurosurgeons and pilots, which are high profiled careers, as you acutely listen to them you can only hope that a personal prescription of Panadol Extra won’t be the end of our future ‘Ben Carson’ or watching gracefully as their dreams slip off their fingers into thin air will not be the farthest they will ascend as pilots.

A Broken Love Story

Bibliophiles have at least one thing in common: the love for books. However, each time I talk to another reader I am reminded that we express our affection for written works in totally dissimilar ways. I’m referring to how we read.
Juggling multiple of books, is it a yay or a nay? Reading multiple books always feels like cheating, actually let’s call a spade a spade, it’s cheating! Stolen meat is always the sweetest but it’s undeniable that at one time we will get caught. Don’t open that second book before finishing the first, or the book police will make you do community service in your local library for the rest of your life, lol!

Evolving Beyond Karago-Ini

So this past weekend was an eventful one. I am still in that “take me back mood” (and by the way if you know that person who rewinds moments like this let me know), just mention your price! The event was organized by EYG which is a mentorship programme that aims to give back to the society through mentoring secondary schools and primary schools. The founder happens to be an employee of PWC ,they have members from DELOITTE,KPMG,GOOGLE and artists…so you can imagine the impact the group have on schools. Are you involved in any activities of giving back to the society? If not,please make a point.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of othersMahatma Gandhi.
