The crux of any academic height is not the fact that you have landed yourself a mouth-watering six figures paid job. Many often assume the increase in their bank balance at the end of every month is the best thing life can offer them. I do not say luxury should be under emphasized neither am I saying money will not offer happiness. But what is luxury and money without content?
Misconceptions abound overtime that writers are talkative. What a myth! Whoever came about that ‘slogan’, I still wonder.
I was chatting with a girlfriend last week and she told me I had better quit writing else I would forever remain single. I was shocked and my mouth hung open. I tried to decipher the relationship between writing and relationship/marriage. She took her time to explain that her boyfriend –now ex- always emphasize that writers are talkative. And that her friends always agree with him. They claim writers always try to make their opinion count, always trying to shove it down people’s throat. And at the end of the day, they always write about what other people have discussed with them, presenting it wrongly. read more
Hey dears, how are you doing today?
I guess you all enjoyed my last posts on Addiction and I am pretty sure most of you have downloaded some of these apps. Please drop your usernames in the comment section so I can follow you.
Today, we shall be exploring the positive effect of social media.
Despite the alarming negative effects of the social media, we cannot rule out its positive effect. I will try as much as possible not to do any mention for this post so I am not labelled biased.
MONEY MAKING VENTURE
In my last post, I mentioned that people make money via social media and I did a little introduction on that. It is quite unfortunate that most of us do not exploit what we have deeply but only enjoy its surface benefit. read more
I had always known Jenny to be a goal getter, focused and determined. She is not one who easily gets swayed by material things. She loves living well and comfortable- don’t get me wrong but she’s always satisfied with what she can get. Imagine my surprise when I saw her driving a jalopy car the last time I visited Lagos. I had engaged Ruby in an amebo during one of our girls’ outing while waiting for Jenny to start the car, as to why she could not have been patient enough to get herself a posh car knowing that she earns enough to afford one. Ruby smiled and told me her life had changed since she downloaded the Snapchat App.
This is really getting interesting. What has Snapchat got to do with a rickety old car? Ruby took her time to explain.
‘Imagine opening your Snapchat and seeing your friends dabbing and dancing to Ycee’s Jagaban and chopping mouth to Drake’s Hot Bling in their own or some rich boyfriend’s car. Viewing their snaps on Friday in their hot short dresses going clubbing and getting high on shisha and then coming back to their beautiful bedroom that is all pinky and beautiful on Saturday morning to get some rest.’
‘Well, she has to get that car she can afford so she can do snapvideos playing R n B on her way to and fro work.’
‘But the car is not even presentable!’
‘No one can know. You need to see the interiors, you will think it’s a G-Wagon she’s driving. And she now clubs almost every Friday.’ read more
