This is a graffiti i saw today behind a restaurant’s male’s bathroom door.

Quite amusing if you ask me.

my opinion on  bathroom’s writing and graffiti is that since it is neither done for money or critical acclaim, bathroom graffiti and writing is one of the truest form of act.

 

What do you think? why do you think people do this?

Foreign mindset

She said, “Everybody hates you in this country, nobody likes you”

He went out that evening and try to converse with the locals in a pub.

One of them said, “you have a job?, no way, who would hire you?”

Sad and dejected, He went home that night and thought to himself

“We are ever going to be foreigners in this country. Everything is always going to be twice as hard……..”

“Or twice as easy. Use your uniqueness to your advantage. The energy you put out is the energy you receive.”

“Adapt to living hard, things will gets easier, forget the indigenous,look at your birth country, people prosper, suffer, die everyday. life goes on and it’s never easy even for the indigenous”.

“That’s that”, he said to himself . “Ok, time to learn and work hard”.

“Who are you talking to?”, She said.

Westerners and Antiques

“A renovated two-hundred-year-old mill granary, you know, the kind of thing Europeans like.

It doesn’t work here. But of course, it makes sense because we are third-worlders and third-worlders are forward-looking.

We like things to be new, because of our best is still ahead, while in Europe their best is already past and so they have to make a fetish of the past.”

Those are the exact words that a relative said to me while i was in my father’s home town a year ago. It’s strange and funny that it’s stuck in my head ever since. i dont know why. Maybe if i write it down it might reveal a deeper meaning.

 

 

 

Shiftless…

There is one thing about me i’m not a dreamer. i can say i’m an achiever if that makes sense.
I love challenges, and i love them more if they are attainable. I admire people that like or pose challenges as well.

Now when i say i like people that pose challenges i am not referring to human relationship challenges. i tend to stay away from those type of challenges.

An old friend of mine once described as a goat-head. She was remarking the fact that i never give up and quite stubborn in the face of challenges.

She said it as an insult, i received it as a compliment. I guess that’s because i’ve already made that realisation about myself, challenged it and end up falling in love with it.
Self-analyses have made me realise that this is what keeps me going in life.

You know, i believe

Where there is desire
There is going be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
So you’ve gotta get up and  try and  try and try…..

Now, that might come across as “trying the same thing over and over again with the expectation of a different result”. NO, that’s not my way.
I believe life is a lesson, i believe everyday and every moment on this earth is meant to teach us something. it can be something beautiful, enjoyable or painful.
Every attempt at a challenge should be treated as a lesson.

i know some people that dont believe in this way of life. people that will try things once or twice and give up.
i dont despise these people, i quite admire them in a way. I believe everyone is different and i respect that.
They dont know my journey, they might never understand the life of someone that is not born with a special talent, look or charisma.

people like me have to work very hard for what we have. We have to study every day to ensure we get that first class honours result.
We have to train 5 times a week to ensure we win that race. We have to go out with a couple of women to learn not to confess your whole heart on the first date.(even though it’s the truth). Such is life i guess but you know one thing. There is no
greater feeling like winning something that you worked hard for. Even if you are not the best, you know you are better and knowledgeable person than
who you were before you take on the challenge.
