Happy New Year!!


 I don't know where to begin. Since I relocated to Naija, I haven't blogged. Life has just been so crazy.

Where do I start?

  • Is it the job hunt where I sat at home for 6 months pushing out mails till I got something?
  •  Is it the business ideas that failed, for me to try again? 
  • Is it one chick I left Holland to come and see, only for her to use the *cough* fake preg ish on me...later found out she was cheating on me during the time we were together, cus she had a baby sometime after, and no, the lil critter looks nowhere like me!

 Lagos is crazy men....

 I took my leave on the 24th of December...gotta resume work this Monday and I aint looking forward to it...

 Sigh....God dey.

 Happy new year guys! Its been 2 years since I blogged, and I just wanted to drop this in case some of you passed this way...

 See you soon hopefully! wavemasta

My dearest
I know I havent been posting in ages, and you have all but given up on me...
But never fear...
Lord wavey has returned...
Omo enuff gist seriously. Where do I start?

First gist. I relocated to naija permanently. Thats right. I have moved back home. After lots of soul searching, and praying with my pastor in the Netherlands, God opened the doors and showed me that home was where I needed to be. I wasnt so scared though I had lots of people asking me questions like:

"Have you gotten a job already?"
"Why don't you try another foreign country?" (No thanks)

Words cannot describe the feeling of closing my former apartment for the last time, and entering the train to the airport, knowing I was NEVER gonna go back...

4 years and some months ago, I wondered when I would see my home again..

Now, for now, Im crashing in my old bed, NEPA have done their thing again, but never fear,we have an inverter.

My internet comes on only at night, so I will only be able to post then..

But watch out guys...

I'm back!!

I think I have lost my geek status. I dont like reading programming books like I used to, and Ive sort of lost interest in the field. I also want cash, and to be rich.Lots of it (cash), and to be on top of the food chain. My former boss telling me he could get software developers for X price (talking like I and people in my field were commodities) just put me off.

I take solace in studying business and personal development, because I discovered I like to encourage people, and leave people better than I met them.
I still love IT, and now that I am out of a job, I am seriously refecting as to what to do with my life. And as to what my life purpose is.
I'm thinking of a lot of things man, some job options, but then I am factoring in what will happen if I want to settle down. Face it, this place isnt the easiest place to adapt to. I have been here 4 years and cant speak the language fluently (though I cant get lost). For a woman to come join me here..e get as e some would love to just come abroad anyways.
Now I am seriously looking inwards, and asking myself, what am I good at, and what can I do with my life? I have decided to take several money generating ideas, and run with I only got one life to live.
Right now I am typing this 2 AM my time. I seem to have developed this sleeping madness where I sleep very very late, a la insomnia, and then wake up late.
After doing my self development, praying (at times) and feeling guilty for sleeping in, I go to the gym or just read.
Speaking of the gym, my body aches cus I did a massive workout yesterday, or today (depending on how u look at it). I made a commitment to getting my body in shape, cus when I got back here from naija, I hit some depression (mild) and I just didnt feel like going to the gym.
But when I lost my job, and I sat in the crib doing nothing but reading, watching TV, and drinking...I looked in the mirror and saw the beginning of a beer gut.

Now, I want to handle my "business" with my wife well, and she deserves anything apart from a pot belly, so that MOTIVATED me to go to the gym, to trek sef, its 20-30 mins walk from my house and my bike is broken, but its bearable with an ipod on anyways.

At this point, I have no idea where to send my CVs again. Most of these companies want you to speak dutch like a native speaker...ok I have enrolled in a course beginning close to the end of this month, but still, if you cant speak Dutch, they dont care about your skills...
Its their country anyways...
Its just I have a feeling I need to do something here...and its not yet time for me to leave. But the instant I get that telegram from Jah to leave here, you wont have to tell me twice.
I've sent my stuff (CV) to different places..I know something will turn up, and I am also chasing other money maker ideas of mine.
Chicks? Don't get me started. Their dating system here is crap, utter crap.
Imagine, you meet a chick at a party. If she decides to talk to you, you are apparently not meant to get her number, rather you ask for her MSN or yahoo id, then follow up from there. Ive tried the direct step-to-and-spit-game approach, omo, they are not happy they see fine boi talking to them..chei!
Well an alternative is to use dating sites...cus when we meet, we both know what we want. And all I can say is that with the way these chicks here behave, no wonder their guys are turning gay. Seriously.
The amount of conji that has held me here...kai, God is just laughing at me, I swear.
Check this out. I went for my toastmasters meeting at a members house.
Shes like ohhh would you like to see my cats?
I'm But I decide to be nice, and go look at the cats.
Imagine a room with 3 adults (sorry to include myself) staring at 2 cats who were squinting and feeling like superstars and people going ...."ooo they look so cute".
The owner was like "yes they love people"....kai! These people and pets.
If I am walking on a path, thats when you will see one silly man with one bingo on a leash. Instead of the bingo to walk jejely, it will now come to my side.
Wetin? If na 9ja, na kick u go use pursue am. But here, they can sue you for cruelty to
Reminds me of when I saw a Dutch woman use her hands to pack her dogs poop into a nylon, and throw it in a dustbin. I was waiting for a bus.....I was shocked. Kai! To say I was shocked was even an understatement....

God dey sha.
Anyways I dey run o....laterz!

A Belated Birthday Post

My birthday was last week wednesday, and I turned a year older. It was a quiet uneventful day, I mean what else would you expect in the Netherlands? If na naija I for carry boiz go shack after work, but anyways..
So, loads of people called me, sent me smses, wrote on my facebook wall...*sob
I felt so much love it was nice...then I got some cake and shared it for all my house fellowship dudes, came back home, eat some fried rice and chicken, eat some cakes (Still got leftovers in my fridge), and drank some wine..
Just looking over my life. Ive grown. A lot. Since my undergrad days, NYSC, almost spending 4 years working and thinking of the ordeal I faced during my MSc days..
Days of being alone, being broke at times, forced to be celibate(ewwwww), and generally adapt. It made me stronger though, bringing me closer to being the man I see in my vision.
So happy birthday to me..Ive been too lazy to log on and type
To see another year added to your life is to thank God for sparing you. Life is beautiful, and when things go wrong or look wrong, appreciate the fact that you have eyes, legs, a brain, and the gift of life..
See you guys later!

Ok peeps, its been agessssss....
This blog is all but dead, but hey, it remains the last bastion of free space I got..
Anyways I have been working on projects, so far. Written a book, working on getting it published (was expensive), didn't get my last work contract renewed...
Now Ive been at home for like 3 weeks though, and seriously working on an inventory of my life, and wondering if I should finally stop coding, and move on to something else.
One of my other projects is a network marketing business which is taking time to get off the ground, but I will get there.
So, good news is I got to go to Nigeria after 4 years. I just decided to go, and ignore people who had misgivings (My family, etc), and went back home.
It was nice to be back in Naija, to feel the heat at MMI airport, and feel NEPA again. I couldn't believe I was back after so long. I drank star, eat correct food, saw all my facebook friends, and went to the palms mall, thing I didn't do was go clubbing.
I also saw hot chicks men, with lovely fleshy full bodies, not the flat ones we have here. Even so called local chics on the road carried assets enough to change a hard core
Anyways I had fun, got back to Holland, and hit some depression for a bit, and didn't go to the gym for over a month, then my bosses tell me they aren't renewing my contract....but I wasn't so sad cause I was getting tired of the place, and being shouted at and stuff. So well now I am searching and really introspecting in myself. So whats the next step, I don't know...
Man, I need to organize myself a girlfriend in this Abacha said way back.."My fellow Nigerians...enough is enough!!"
Last week I went out with a friend to a Nigerian club here...dunno, scoping babes at clubs hasn't being my thing. I can spit game on other grounds, but this place sef get as e be...think even after 4 years here 9ja still dey my
Later peeps...

So Far

wassup people...
Its been close to two months since my last update, yeah I know, a lots been happening. I got a new crib, new apartment, and I was able to move, and end the 4 hour commute, and settle down at my job. R and I split up ,you know we just let the relationship die, but I am better for it. Have someone now, R seemed to be just to tide me through those times, but I hope shes good wherever she is.
The jobs there, learning new stuff, being yabbed by my bosses, but trying my best anyways. The place is alright though. New city looks good, I have an apartment in a building with people...yeah not aliens, lol..main thing on ground is the internet access. I had issues with the last provider because they were so uncultured and rude. The internet wasn't working, I asked them to fix it, and they started blathering about if the cable signal was working.
I told em I didn't have a TV, and so I cudn't test it, but I was sure it was ok. They now told me they needed to know if the cable was working. I told them I didn't have a TV, and the silly fool at the end went to tell me to go borrow one.imagine!
Anyways I was bounced up and down so much I cancelled UPC and got KPN. Now KPN is telling me theres no entry point for internet in my house. The landlord says otherwise, that its in one other apartment on the other side. Thing is they are coming btw 8 and 6 pm on wed, so I have to wait for them or na me go suffer. These technicians here feel they are God. They can't give the exact time they are coming, imagine! And if they come and theres any delay, they just bounce!
I told this to my landlord n he said I should just stall them and call him n he'd be there in 5 minutes. Heres keeping me fingers crossed. All this for service I have to pay for.

The place is still crib. I have to furnish it lil by lil. First thing I had to do was get blinds to cover my windows, those things were freakin expensive, but I needed them cus I had to change in the bathroom and turn off the lights in the apartment when I want to dress and stuff.

I was supposed to be in 9ja, but well I set the right goal, but wrong date, but I am still gonna go sha. I need to think, clear my head, see my land, and well meet my current girl n see how it will go from there. Enuff jist man.

This place can make you do freaky things...seems my beer intake has increased, I gotta watch it though, but when you are alone, anything goes.

Working on a project to add an extra source of income i.e passive income. I'm doing this via network marketing and I am excited cus I am reaching for my dreams..also got a book being published but I won't say anything, before someone traces me here n reads some of my other the "Hidden chronicles of Okon.."

Thats enough for now guys...later...and yes I am at the office jamming music...such is my life for now....

Long time!

Hey guys:
Its been a long time since I updated. I was asked about it today, so I decided to do so. So much has been happening in my life. I got a new job, but I have to spend like 4 hrs and 38 minutes a day on the train to and fro. Its crazy...I get up 5.30 here just to make work by 9.00 in the morning, and the people at work think I am nuts.
I have been so occupied which is why I haven't had time to write.
Work is good....I am still on my naija holiday visit, and I still have to finish clearing up some debts from last year because during that time I was almost homeless, I had to do what was necessary to survive.
Man, e no easy but God dey.
I have time to work on my thoughts and a lot of personal development, so I have been training my brain to look for opportunities instead of the obstacles.
I am also searching for an apartment here..its been crazy looking for one. I finally had to stay with my brova as a last resort, and its been ok, but theres been some invasion of my know privacy means a lot to me..i.e "accidentally" reading my mails, and some weird intrusions into my life which I try to skillfully maneuver so as not to cause any friction in the house. At least I save money on food, and house rent but I spend cash on transport mehn..

I am determined to follow through and break through on my goals and ambitions. I can't allow this year to pass me by.

As for chicks, well I am still here, with conji...and R and I went our separate ways. It seems that it wasn't destined to work, and at times God just removes the energy from such relationships. I think its for the best, and we will both be better for it. There was no pain on my part. I have met someone else, but I dey take am slowly, no point in rushing cus I aint from russia.
My mum recently told me that I keep things inside. Well this is just because after listening to conversations taking place amongst my familia, I have realized that I think differently and I have my own ideas.
I mean, I am going to buy my own Aston Martin V12 vantage. But I'm sorrounded by pple who might think second hand is the way to go, and could be critical, you feel me? And I love to read a lot about success, cash, developing the mind, i.e personal development, but we aint on the same of course if I have my dreams, visions and plans, then why on earth would I be Joseph, and go blabbing all my stuff?

Its got to the point where I have had to direct some post to my office so it doesn't get opened for me when I get home. I try to look on the bright side as ok, I am living in someones crib...but jeez, I no be small boy, wetin?

Anyways Jah dey, seriously, I need my own place, but I know I got it now..

Im trying to expand my mind and see if I no fit get yarinya for to pass the time, but I am thinking of settling down soon. Anyhow it will get better..

Ciao guys...gotta get back to work.. ;)
