HONEST ADVICE TO MY 18-YEAR-OLD BROS

eighteen

I turned eighteen. My dad caught me peeing on our flower bed. He shouted at me and I jumped over our barbed wire fence and run away from home the whole day. I was eighteen. I was mature and no one was supposed to tell me what the fuck I was supposed to do. I got hooked up with a girl from our area and I even started planning on how to get married in my mind. I saw the kids walking besides me and my supposedly sweet heart. Fuck that! She dumped me. I left home and went to […]

DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT MAKES YOU YOU?

I have been thinking. I have been drinking too. I don’t know if it is the drinking or it is that am just crazy. We can disregard the drinking part. All I can remember drinking today is water. Not unless Jesus decided to turn the water we drink here into wine like he did back in those days in Galilee, I think I am pretty darn sober. Maybe we will go with the part that I am crazy, but hey, don’t judge me yet until you hear my part of the story. Deal? Of course, deal! The kind of thinking […]

WORRYING IS USELESS

worrying

You know the feeling and it is fucked up. You just did your job interview at a company in the city and now you can’t sleep because you are worried that you might not get selected for the job. You Just did your major exam and now you think that you might have fucked up somewhere and that you might fail. I may never get married. I might die one day. Oh shit, the al-Shabaab might be regrouping again. And did you hear that the world bank is planning on removing its help from our country? Oh my God, next […]

TELEVISION IS DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU DUMB

TV

If there is one thing which is popular in this world, it is the huge black box on the wall. Yes, that thing that makes you not to arrange your furniture before you figure out where it will be fixed on the wall. The thing I am talking about is non-other than the television. It is the one thing that millions of folks have come to believe that it is the source of all the truth about what is going on in the world. It is the thing that people are looking forward to get to know what favorite move […]

THINGS THAT SCHOOL WILL NEVER TEACH YOU

School

It is the 21st century and school is compulsory to each and every kid. Even primary education has already been made free for every kid. Plans to make high school free are also under way. Damn, the government is on its own mission of kicking illiteracy out of Kenya just like it did with polio years ago. Now the only thing remaining is for the government to start printing huge banners and placing them on electricity poles with huge letters saying KICK ILLITERACY OUT OF KENYA. I love education. What I have never had passion for is school. Yes, I […]

ESCAPING THE MENTAL PRISON

what they think

99.999% of the worlds population is in prison right now. Yes, including you. You who is reading this article from a phone you own and inside a house that you own. I know, right now you are probably wondering what the fuck I am talking about. I will tell you this, I didn’t say the following quote, but I think that whoever said it was far much smarter than me. Here is the quote: “If you care too much about what other people think, you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu Am I starting to make sense to […]

THE GENERATION Y IS DEPRESSED

generation Y

Look at the 21st century kids. Especially those who have just graduated from college. If there is anything that you can tell about them, it is the fact that they are all depressed. I did say it, generation Y yuppies are not happy. They are depressed. My parents were born during that period when there was no independence in my country. It’s around that time when there was the world war II, damn, America and Russia were involved in the cold war. With each making the biggest bomb that they could afford to make and then taking it to the […]

LIFE IS TOO SHORT AND TOMMORROW IS UNKNOWN

a watch

I have always thought I had an infinite amount of time to spend in this world. But wait a minute. I turned 20. Then like the world wanted to get a message across to me I turned 21. So, I thought to myself, If I was twenty and now I am twenty-one, does it mean that I can turn 22 then 23 then 24 then 25 then 30 and then everyone including my mum who always gave me advice and told me to avoid girls is asking to see my girlfriend, then forty then 70 and then 90 and then […]
