A faithful morning..

That faithful morning as I sat before my  computer I thought to myself,’what the hell am I gonna do now?’. I had just broken up with my girlfriend the day before or rather she dumped me. I wouldn’t say it was the worst feeling ever however the feeling wasn’t pretty. Heck it’s the reason I started this entire blogging experience plus it was something I always wanted to do. I will not go into the details of the breakup but I will tell you that around the same time my cousin and roommate at school were experiencing a breakup of their own over the same dumb reason- ‘there was another guy’. I’m sure some of you guys and ladies out there can relate. We started going out in our first year at the university and it only lasted a full semester. If you are in Ghana then a semester is very much like 4 months in school. Then during the holidays it all came crumbling to pieces .
I guess man never realises his full potential unless he goes through a nasty ordeal. Because now my focus level is of the charts literally. I find myself trying out new things and funny enough getting quite good at them. Maybe I’m just trynna cope with how lonely I am or this is actually me doing what I do best. Whatever may be the case this feeling I have now is a good feeling.

Untitled!

It’s been that long since I opened this page to write something down. It’s as scary as the first day I started writing. With dopamine flooding your entire system and thoughts rushing through your mind trying to come out with the perfect article.
After an extremely long time away, I’ve had time to reevaluate myself. I now know there’s no such thing as a perfect article. There’s only an article that is meant to capture and entertain your readers.
That is what I seek to achieve this time around. Until the next post,have a wonderful day/night.

Who we are…

Who am I? What is my purpose here? These are questions we seem to ask ourselves at some point in our lives. We learn so many things. Discover so many wonders. Explain even the hardest of concepts but yet just one thing eludes us-a question of who we are.
What makes us us? Is it our parents,friends,the community we find ourselves in or some other family members? You find people engaging in a whole lot of activities with the hopes of finding themselves out. Do they actually find out at the end? We have so many people in our midst today. Some leaders of political or religious groups. We have inventors,athletes,thinkers. Is that really their sole purpose on earth-to be what we know ’em to be or something far greater.
Sometime ago I wrote about originality. I think we do not know who we are because we are not our original self. Always wanting to be this man or woman. But ones we succumb to our original self then we’ll know who we are. But ones we know who we are,we stop exploring other parts of our self that needs nurturing. I say we are here to keep on exploring ourselves. To ascertain who we are and can be. We can be so much more than just our self. It’s just a matter of exploration.

ORIGINALITY

Sometimes I feel originality is lost. There’s nothing new anywhere anymore. All the music,all the math,all the theories and discoveries have been done already. The best we can do is modify or improve on them. But is that really true-that the generation of today lack the ability to be original?
What is this cause of lack of originality anyways? Do we lack the ability to think? Do we lack the ability to be creative? Or is it our curse? I don’t know the answer to any of that. But what I do know and can say is that I have the utmost confidence in this generation- our generation. We’re not dead or weak. We’re stronger than we look. This is the innovative generation. With major advances in technology,medicine and security. All the self-driving cars,smartphones,health tracking watches are original products of this time. Our forefathers never thought of any of that stuff. This generation is still alive and full of originality. We’ve proven that already and we still continue to show it. This generation is just as original as the ones before. I’m proud to be part of this generation of originality.

GEEK IT ON

There so many things geeks are fascinated with. Things ordinary people deem irrelevant or time wasting. But not geeks. They might seem a bit out of touch or misunderstood but that just makes them awesome. I’ll be taking a look at some of the things that fascinates geeks. Not saying I’m a geek or anything,that’s not for me to decide. So first on the list:
FASTER-THAN-LIGHT SPEED: 

Theres is this thing among physics enthusiast that there could a particle that travels faster than light (FTL) or photons as is known in physics. Some 50 or 55 years ago Einstein theorized in one of his famous finds ever (ie relativity) that nothing can travel faster than light. So far that’s what we’ve seen until the rumours that faster than light speed is attainable. Tachyons are the hypothetical particles that’s supposedly faster than photons. However there hasn’t been any concrete prove of the existence of tachyons. Word is NASA was/is working on an engine that can make spacecraft travel faster than the speed of light.It’s called the Alcubierre  drive. But that’s false. But what if FTL speed was possible, what would that for mankind. This what fascinates geeks all around.

WORMHOLES:

So yeah, you probably have heard of wormholes from watching movies like back-to-the-future and star trek.A wormhole or technically Einstein-Rosen bridge is a hypothetical shortcut in spacetime that enables us to travel not only in space but also in time. So basically time travel. Wormholes are consequences of Einstein’s general relativity theory something he did not like himself but was implied from his maths. Travelling back in time or forward in time seems like an awesome adventure. When geeks talk about time travel they usually talk about the paradoxs one faces such as the grandfather paradox,parallel universe and the post-selected model.You’re probably wondering “what in God’s name are those” and I’d say “that’s just being geeky”.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE (ALIENS):

We’ve seen movies,we’ve seen aliens.Those green little thing-ys.”Take me to your leader earthlings”.You get the point.It is a scientific fact that there are billions of billions of billions of planets in this universe.In the milky way galaxy,where we’re from there are earthlike planets.So it’s ilogical to think ours is the only planet with intelligent species right.That is a very good argument.Why haven’t we found ’em yet.Either we are wrong or aliens are just good at playing hide and seek.Either way the thought of possibly not being the only people here is a hot topic amongs geeks.They just can’t get enough of it.How will they look like?Are they more advanced than us?Are they peaceful?Did they create us?Some of the topics geeks debate on.

SUPERHUMAN POWERS:

If you’re a geek then this has crossed your mind before. “will I get superhuman powers if i were bitten by a radioactive spider,or bathed in the radiation of a star?”.You probably wondering if you’ll get higher than normal bone or muscle density,or shoot lasers from your eyes.These are scenarios geeks play around with.Why, because they can.And they’re normally so detailed in these kinda arguments.

Geeks really are awesome. They do all this and more because they can and love it.A big shout to all geeks out there.Nerds and docks aren’t left out either.

Enjoy your night/day.

 

BLOGGING 360

Blogging can be a very difficult task. Daunting as well. Always having to find the right words to say and how to put those words together. And at the same time keep your readers captivated. You always have to bring out something new to the table.
People go into blogging without knowing what’s at stack. Knowing not whether the public appreciates what you’re trying to put across. You could get lucky and get thousands of viewers or none at all. All the same this should not serve as a detriment. One that should stop you from doing what you love or getting your message across.
Blogging can be scary a times. Sometimes people construe your message wrongly. And you might end up instigating a riot or something or you might just change a life for good.
Blogging can also be fun. It exposes you to a whole new world out there. Being a source of education to the blogger and his readers. A great job well done to all bloggers. You keep doing what you do and never give up. It’s a life changing game

SCHOOL

What is school?  Why do I go to school? Why do you go to school? what  does school have to offer you and me? These are questions we ask ourselves at one point in time in our lives. there are times we feel school is just a waste. I haven’t travelled the world to know if this feeling is universal but I know that’s how my cousin and I feel. As well as my neighbor next door.

I hate the idea of having to learn on someone’s schedule. On the average I do things better at my own pace. I hate the idea of my worth or relevance being based on a test. I hate the idea of having to rush in my studies in order to catch up with my friends. It’s not like the world is coming to an end. I hate the idea of learning what others think I should learn instead of learning what I want to learn when I want to learn. I hate the idea of having to sit in class quietly while watching someone else do all the talking. I’m an interactive learner for God’s sake. I hate the very main idea that when you don’t go to class society sees you as a delinquent. Your teaches get mad and probably punish you. I hate the idea of your peers calling you all sort of names because you couldn’t answer the teacher’s question. In short school kills spirit.

Unfortunately this is the nature of school in Ghana.it has been this way for a long time. I guess its safe to say some do understand how school should be like and are doing everything possible to make it that way. however the effort isn’t enough

It’s not that I hate school. I just despise some of the methods adopted in a place meant for all to go and gather knowledge. After all it is the education that’s important not school. Yes they are completely different things.

An education is not how much you have commited to memory or even how much you know.It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't.It's knowing where to go to find out what you need to know;and it's knowing how to use the information once you get it.
