One score and two years

Time

Regularly, I still put on the uniform of scholars belonging to Albert Einstein’s school of thought,  who believe time is only an illusion.

We all have our various theories and reasons, and here is mine.

We currently, measure time by seconds, which run into minutes , minutes become hours, and hours finally make up  days. A day – which is defined by dawn and dusk.

But then,  the concept of dawn and dusk is simply a make believe. Sun rises and Sun sets are a beautiful illusion created by the rotation of the earth around it’s axis,  so if the earth decided to stop rotating or slow down a little,  our entire idea of time comes crumbling.

I therefore see time as a GIFT that was created  for us to make sense out of our world.  Imagine if we did not have sun rises and Sun sets,  how would we measure time?  the entire world would not even make sense.

When I think about time,  and think about sun sets and Sun rises,  it only affirms by believe that there is a God – The creator of and master mind of sun rises and sunsets,  the creator of time.

Time is a gift from God. A gift that allows us to count our moments here on earth and give our lives meaning. (I would share a complete exposè on my theories about time and all in a future article.)

Today , I want to reflect on God’s gift in my life – time.

I’m one score and two years old (Twenty and two years). Yesterday,  I turned 22.
This means our earth has revolved around our sun 22 times since I was birthed. 😃

I love birthdays,  not because I feel they are “special” compared to other days , (  my understanding of time doesn’t help much ) but because they help me appreciate the gift of time, and reflect on moments in the last revolution of the sun.

The year gone past consisted of several beautiful HIGHs and also a few lows to remind me that this is Life and it’s not a bed of roses.

I met several amazing people during the course of the year,  I also strengthened a lot my past relationships , but some them also waned (well life 🙁 ) .

I made amazing new friendships. I graduated from school,  published an online anthology ,  travelled out of the country, it was wonderful.

One of the highs  would definitely include my experience with the Unilever Africa idea Trophy, which offered  me the opportunity to meet a lot of amazing people and have such a wonderful time , it offered a lot of learning  and it would be really difficult  to have me trade this experience for anything.

Let me use this opportunity to also talk about the Global finals I mentioned we were to attend in a previous post.

We eventually couldn’t go in person or rather,  in “people” 🙂 ,  because our visas were denied,  we however tried competing virtually,  and left a remarkable impression on our judges.

I am immensely grateful to all the stakeholders  and everyone who supported us and tried to ensure our success at the competition. My only wish was that  we had the opportunity to deliver our best and to have seen it’s results, however, be assured that we did Nigeria proud. 🙂

I am also thankful to my team mates for such a wonderful experience together.  We entered the contest as friends,  but came out brothers.

Also, during the last revolution of the earth around our sun, I put out my debut collection of poems (Love diary) . It was a promotional collection, and it’s results amazed and really encouraged me.

I was really thankful for the support I received from everyone around me. I was even pressed to release it in paperback,  which I plan to do in earnest,  God willing.  🙂

During the past year,  I also bagged my bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering :). It marked an end to five years of University life, five years that helped shape the person I am today.

Somewhere between my freshman and sophomore year,  I set a slightly ambitious target CGPA, in the end,  I came as close as one could ever come and ended up with an excellent result. which reminds me of a quote from my physics teacher in secondary school,  he always said,  “aim for the stars,  maybe you will land on the moon”. By the way, the moon, is a pretty nice place to land.

So guys,  if you have any construction works to be done,  a qualified engineer is just a dial away 😊.

The University also offered me an avenue to make awesome friendships, friendships I would deeply miss and forever cherish!

During the course of the year,  my laptop and phone also got stolen. If you have been following me for a while , you would already be familiar with this sort of happenings, I’m praying for it to stop however. ( When it’s not that I’m some magnet that is always attracting thieves 😀.

This was going to set me back, as I lost a lot of important stuff on my devices,  I lost my documents,  pictures,  short stories,  poems,  CAD designs, vexscheworld related docs etc.

But I have decided to use it as a spring board . I have made a commitment to bounce back stronger. Turn the bad vibes to good ones,  and so far,  that’s been working out fiiine.

All in all,  this year gone past has been a great year.

Moving forward,  I look forward to an exciting period serving my country,NIGERIA on the National youth service Corps (NYSC)  scheme, Concentrate on writing more beautiful stuff, grow the @vexscheworld brand,  experiment more with my music, plan for the future etc.

I am forever thankful for the kind of friends and family God has blessed me with.  They always make me feel like a rockstar everytime it’s my birthday and did just that this time around.  God bless.

Bye… Till my next post,  which would be soon (hopefully) .

Kolade Pelumi.
