“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own” – Robert A Heinlein
“…those three words, are said too much, they are not enough…” Chasing cars-Snow Patrol
I love this song. I love many songs, each for a different reason, some because they bring back memories and others simply because they sound beautiful. This particular one is because I agree with the lines in the song. I bet the words they were talking about here even though it wasn’t explicitly pointed out was “I love you”. I agree with the fact that they are said way too much and yet are they ever enough. Are they even necessary?
A good friend of mine once wrote on her bucket list, “Love the man I will marry” and even though I did not express it then, I though that was a defeatist view of life. A kind of settling. I am glad to announce that three years later, she is happily married and no she…

I am not sure whether it is the times in which I have grown up and the ideals that were popularized during my youth, or that we have always battled with these internal struggles regardless of the era, but too many young people seem to be torn between two paths of life. One path involves possessing an inordinately acute awareness of the fleeting nature of life and how suddenly one can cease to exist, thus promoting notions of spontaneity and ‘living life to the fullest’. In it’s most reductive form, this philosophy can be condensed into one universal four-letter acronym: “YOLO”. Of course, this is an extreme description. Most people jump onto the YOLO wagon only occasionally, usually on the weekend, or when life seems like it has lost all meaning, or has become too much of a burden to bear.
The second path is the one that taunts these…

It’s Ok to Quit…
We were always raised to “try our best” and not to be a “quitter.” Well, society, thanks for setting us up for failure with your terrible advice.
It’s OKAY to quit.

I’m not saying you should go out and quit your job, school, marriage, kids, etc. But there are some situations in which it’s best to quit and move on. I have outlined some of these circumstances when you should just raise up the white flag.
Skills (or lack thereof) and Talents:

I, for one, could never be an Olympic sprinter. For those of you who have seen me run, you know my legs don’t work that way. I could never be a flame thrower. Sure I could try and try and maybe…

Invest in Personal Improvement..
Waking up is the best thing next to eating, the thought of food can be overrated but so is the smell of it. Life, has many things to offer apart from love, sadness and happiness. Ours is a world of transformation, the age of diversity, socialism and multiple freedoms. Everything we do is a result of our own choices, and so is unemployment. But the main question in line is, are you employable?
Can you be employed? I have come to realise that it’s nolonger about the weight of the CV, and I have come to terms with it.
Last week, I was interviewing Makerere University graduates for a management job, I was shocked by the fact that none was qualified enough for the job. I am just a first year student who is less than 2 decades old, I have no degree and my CV is still weak but…
