I am Qarah

Co-habiting wasn’t very natural for us in this part of the world before now.
The thought of one’s folks is enough to straighten one up.
It’s not so anymore, folks do not really see a big deal in co-habiting any longer.
Our Parents’ moral standard which seemed to be out of reach seems to have been reached and subtly broken.
Their excuse in recent times is age. Age should not be a reason to misbehave.
If something is wrong for the teenagers then it is wrong for the adult who is not doing it right.
If this continues, it will leave us with uncontrollable teenagers.
For the sake of the upcoming generation and our sanctity we should stop this menace called co-habiting.

Thanks to Hollywood, they have successfully sold it to us over time and we’ve come to buy and accept it as a norm.
No one seem to contend…

Nekkid Pic Nostradamus

518-songofmypeople

I wanted to use a pic of Jennifer Lawrence, but didn’t know if I’d get sued. Since we’re living in an age where technology is the ‘second coming’ and the internet is our ‘messiah’, why don’t we take a moment to consider what the human race has gotten itself into. I can’t in all honesty tell you exactly what the internet is or where it comes from! This technology came on so fast we never had time to understand it. We possess the power to talk and share values with people across the world, while, in the same moment, an enigmatic figure can steal money from the coffers of world governments. Pedophiles can peddle their creepiness, human traffickers and various pederasts. Terrorists can recruit and hackers can steal sensitive information, while I can hardly figure out how to post a single picture of my dick.

First off, have you ever…

10,000 hours: Practice, Learn, Practice, Learn, Practice, Learn, Practice, Succeed.
In the book Outliers , author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. How does Gladwell arrive at this conclusion? And, if the conclusion is true, how can we leverage this idea to achieve greatness in our professions?

Imperfect Authentic Cadence

Imperfect Authentic Cadence

In case you do not know what the title means, don’t bother, I would rather not bore you with what means it too; so, let it be. However, if you are so inquisitive that you just must know, you can Google-search that after reading this post. Not now! I said AFTER!

Straight to business. The two important words we are considering are ‘imperfect‘ (from the word ‘perfect’) and ‘authentic‘. I’m not an authority in grammar and I am no linguist either, but I do know ‘perfect‘ and ‘authentic‘ are not synonyms. As wrong as I may be, the combination of ‘imperfect’ and ‘authentic’ still sounds paradoxical to me.

I’m taking it for granted that you know what the two words independently mean. Of course, you do! Their combination has set me thinking. Can something be imperfect and yet authentic?…

Past Life Tourist: Remembering Love

pieces of me

waiting

I coax no fish today. There will be a hollow in my stomach as I have run out of brown food and the winter months continue long past the time that spring is meant to appear. It is chance and good favor that I still have the keg of strong rice wine half full. The comforting haze helps to hide the pain of hunger and it takes me far away from this barren waste of my life. No wife to warm my ger, no daughter to cook and sing for me. Both gone, one in death, one to warm the furs of her husband’s ger.  She is Least wife of five but still sheltered by the wealth of the warrior husband who chose her. Who took her from me.

She will eat well tonight, and each night. She will never know the pain of being alone, for she is now…

The Secrets That We Keep

More on secrets…

Defining Wonderland

SecretsHow many of us huddled together on the playground and cupped our hands over a friend’s ear to whisper hidden words that we had never uttered before?  We shared our innermost thoughts and dreams to our pals after they pinky promised to “never tell anyone so long as I live.”  Perhaps we divulged our feelings for a classmate or confessed to something embarrassing.  Whatever the reason, we decided to unleash the truth and almost immediately felt a weight had been lifted.  There’s a reason websites like PostSecret are so popular.  People need to let it out, to ease the burden of secret keeping and be honest, if not with others than with themselves.

As adults, we all keep secrets.  It’s just the way it is.  Some people hide feelings about their best friend’s spouse or what they did last Saturday night.  Health conditions, past mistakes, and relationships are concealed under…

DIDN’T THEY SAY CHANGE IS CONSTANT?

#JustMyThoughts.

Change is a departure from the past, a welcome to a new hope, idea or phase. This change is inevitable but it will come, either for good or for bad. Change is riding a bicycle to owing a power bike. It is even a tremendous change from a hut to a mansion.

Nigeria changed, is changing and will change. From military to civilian government, British rule to Nigerian rule. I heard some people are packing due to 2015 elections which they believe will end in chaos. Well? Nigerians refused to change , they begged us to, even God begged us in some way. God told the Israelites ‘ my anger will rise against thee if thou continue in sin’

AND I TIRE FOR THE MATTER!
During a conversation with my roomies on Nigeria and 2015, some believed Nigeria will split by 2015 and this split will bring dangers of…
