Gibberish....

Oh no, I can tell this is a very muddled up post, More like a diary entry…..might not make sense to anyone but me.

·       * Long Exhale…….. I have officially served my country and I can say it was quite an experience; I’ve never wanted something to be over so bad…..So bad that when I was handed the flipping piece of paper (The Certificate that is) I looked at it and said “Is this it?” ………Really? ………….All that hassle for this? I thank God for seeing me through this “ordeal”- as I would like to call it, and be warned  NYSC truly means Now Your Suffering Continues………..It’s a colossal waste of time, and I’m glad it’s over for good! I would miss CD days though, it's the only official excuse to work four times a week.....*sigh

*Longer exhale……… got a lot going on around me…….. a lot on my mind, enough things to demoralize me and my state of mind, yet I am far from being demoralized (dunno why- ok I know why), a bit worried- this I cannot help, seeing as it is human nature, but then again worrying doesn’t change anything, and for the 1st time in my life I am letting myself share all of this with a very good friend of mine. I never share- I’m usually an All-in-one Package kind of person, I Do EVERYTHING for myself by myself, but this time I just can’t help it………….it feels like all the things weighing me down get dumped at the sight of my friend J, It’s amazing…… so amazing that I feel at peace in the midst of madness …….and that just makes me HaPpY.

I was meant to share a quote based on my current state of affairs but Funms beat me to it…..So here, I’ll share this with you guys and I’m sure at least one person will use this as the missing piece to whatever puzzle they are trying to solve in their lives right now.


I turned the page too......and it's Awesome!!!!..................Now I have to learn not to keep going back.

PS: NYSC is my achievement for the month of February.......yay!
All those born in March, where the Party at?!

Sounds like one of those moments of liberation in a persons life..
When you've finally lost sight of the shore to discover new seas..
Good on ya!

Afrobabe said...

Hmmmmm the post actually sounds a bit sad...hope you are ok dear...

The way you felt about receiving that nysc cert was the same way I felt about collecting my bsc cert...I was like...6 freaking years (plus strikes)for this?? I could have typed it myself...

Smaragd said...

I couldnt agree more about NYSC, nobody has been able to convince me that it is a useful/worthy experience, mchew.

good quote, it will come in handy.

K said...

Ah darling...the post made sense to me! Yay for finishing finally another chapter finished for real. I love your attitude many people worry and find no solutions and its good you are sharing your worry so that maybe their advice can point you in a different direction. I pray everything will work out for you whatever it is you are worrying about. Thanks to you and Funms for sharing that quote...LOVE IT!!!

Congrats on completing NYSC!!!!

Is it really a waste? I know some CDs are quite helpful (planting trees in our deforestation and hanging out with highscool kids as mentors). Anyway,

Happy New month!

SHE said...

I feel you on the NYSC thing. Its just so much hardship and risk!A total waste of time, if you ask me.

The quote does make a lot of sense.

bob-ij said...

That's a very nice thot, to move past the past!...
I'm now dreading NYSC..I hate suffering for no reason @ all

Tigeress said...

Hey Sirius, can't believe i missed your post- my bad. Hope u're good. :) Congrats on completing ur NYSC- i havent heard that many great stories about it.

Anyway, i hope things are going on better for you now.

Take care!

Geebee said...

Congrats on successfully concluding your NYSC. Now, your suffering no longer has to continue. Lol. So what’s the next step? Will you be retained in your PPA or you’ve got a juicier offer. Really, I envy you NYSC eligible people o. I am in my final year in a part time institution (LASU) and it’s likely I might not be doing NYSC. I’d have loved to experience how that suffering actually continues. . . Yes indeed, moving on does not mean closing the book. Just turn the page. I’d hold on to that one. First time here. I enjoyed my stay.

Sexkitten said...

Congrats on completing NYSC. Sometimes we just have to go through the process.

I'm glad you have someone to share your thoughts and feelings with. We ALL need someone.

Now on to the next chapter...

O'Dee said...

I have 2 disagree with you on NYSC. I'm loving it & there's a lot of oppurtunities.
Guess i have to explain myself now. That will have to be in a post on my blog.

Congrats.

Bibi said...

Buttercup said...
