Dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

Posted on Updated on

It isn’t the end of the road..

Half-Life

We have all heard the stories of the various incidences of how people we know have gotten pregnant without planning for it. I will of course refresh your memory with a few. Oh I got drunk and the rest of the night is a blur but woke up in your bed. I was proving i loved him so slept with him and he insisted no condoms. And there is the condom developed issues when we were in action…and so on. So of course for the wise the morning after is a first resort.

Then the waiting starts; first you feel tired and a bit nauseated but you have answers you are worried and anxious, then your  sleeping pattern changes you are going 10hours instead of  8hours and you still have an explanation workload is killing you. Then your periods are late by a week and you dig up that once…

Should we tell people that we love them?

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own” – Robert A Heinlein

An Editor's dream

“…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…

Ugandans, re-arrange Ebola to spell opportunity

Posted on Updated on

Proudly Ugandan..

Please bear with the ebolised focus; this disease is like that. It takes over your mind, your every waking thought, and you eventually succumb.

But before it kills us all, you guys need to get up and smell the handwash detergents. Ebola can be spelt O.P.P.O.R.T.U.N.I.T.Y.!

Seriously, guys, stop whining and dying and pay a little bit of attention here because there is serious money to be made doing the following:

1. For Ugandans, start with the fact that we kicked Ebola soundly out of the country many years ago and proved that we are the most bad-ass at kicking Ebola’s ass (you need to use Americanisms like that because the main target market for what we are about to start selling will be the Americans). Get the entire world talking about how seriously we handled the disease the first-time round so that the world looks at us with a seriously newfound…

Yellow Pigs or Employment?

YELLOW PIGS

Today I woke up to yet another story of the yellow pigs parade in Kampala. This is the third time pigs painted in yellow are being dropped at different spots in Uganda’s capital since June this year when two youth, Norman Tumuhimbise and Ronald Mayanja beat the security at Parliament letting in two yellow painted pigs. Just last month, the same group of youth who prefer to refer to themselves as the “Jobless Brotherhood” claimed responsibility for second edition of the yellow pigs parade on Kampala Road near the seven billion KCCA leisure park, when they hand-cuffed themselves and walked to the central police station and asked to be detained. I have no doubt that the same group of young people are behind today’s edition of the yellow pigs stunt at Makerere University.

Pigs are known to be greedy animals which eat anything and everything they come about…

The Dos And Don’ts At Work

Naive Ugandan

Recently I attended a retreat organized by my place of work . It was rather one of those I attended because I was expected to be there. And I was also thrilled to be away from Kampala (yes lovely place but can ‘suffocate’ you). Retreats are organized for various reasons but I will not go into details of why we had a retreat. The sessions (Yawns), where on earth do some of these speakers come from? Very boring sessions except for those when we had to group up. I was in a group of very hilarious fellows, always cracking jokes at any chance they would get.

At the beginning of the retreat, we had someone come and ‘officially open’ the retreat, he is a gentleman that I respect. He was trying to tell us about ‘work ethics’, the ‘dos and don’t s’ at places of work. Are you kidding me?…

WhatsAppDoc, TwitterDoc, FacebookDoc: The social media Revolution.

“The future of Medical education is no longer blood and guts, it is bits and bytes.” Gorman PJ.

Gorman, a Stanford University scholar made that statement almost one and  a half decades ago at the turn of this century. He also went on to predict a future highly driven by technology; breaking physical and geographical barriers and building a connected world in medicine, education, entertainment and all other spheres of our lives.

As I go about my life each day; Never far from my laptop, mobile phone in hand, a tablet while on the move and WiFi hot spots at every turn, there’s no doubt that we are living in the future earlier predicted.

Social media and messaging platforms like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp have, by far, generated the greatest transformation in global communication.

With over 20 million mobile phone users and over 6 million people…

My Everyday Living

Aside Posted on

This i can say is my first writing in such a format,pleased that i can start documenting pieces of my adventures and experiences to whoever finds it worth it.

From my bio am pretty much a diverse character, from attending to a patient to lamenting how Balloteli missed that sitter infront of goal then planning how am gona market these ripe oranges.Yap that’s my life and i hope you relate to it.

What took me so long to write a blog, i really don’t know, it’s just that something you keep on avoiding yet you know you really wana start it up.Am not those literature freeks that find this a piece of cake, but i hope i will be someday lol.This will be tough eversince i ditched my smartphone for feature phone, but i guess i will master my way through.

This will be more like an episode of my experiences as a youth venturing in oppurtunities that come knocking and the trends that come by.

Finally i hope this shares ideologies, fun and love in all that we put our hands to.Welcome..
