I really love the examples given. The rule of law is not even near to fair in these instances.
I stand my ground.
Wow. It’s been a while huh?
Do check out http://theoatmeal.com for some super funny stuff. Well if you have a good sense of humour you’ll be laughing (to me: laughing = smiling hard while reading jokes).
I really think the best thing about living alone can be just bursting out laughing at any time of the day and night or shout and talk to yourself and walk naked and hear funny noises and dance and drink and watch movies alone. See, here’s my story.
I applied to Hyundai Engineering some months back. I knew it was a long shot, being a fresh graduate and all. I really really thought I would never. But, all the same I had a longish diiscussion with the bf about the implications of getting this job. (and by implications, i mean the pro’s and con’s). See, here’s the thing.
The Hyundai Project in Kenya is the largest Geothermal Project in Africa, is one of the largest Geothermal Plant Projects in the world. ANNNNNNND the contractors of the project KenGen, assigned the project to Hyundai and Toyota Tsusho.
That’s pretty awesome right?
No, WAIT, that is NOT the bombshell.
Here it is. The Olkaria Geothermal Plant Project is in Naivasha. Naivasha.
Ok, so for those of you who have gone through the process of moving to another county/town solely for work, you will understand how I felt when I was called for the interview.
I mean, 3 months from the initial application, I was actually called for the interview. I was like.
Then, the interview. OMG. Tough. Really tough. I had to talk me way into that project. The power of words. After a MONTH of pushing, I finally recieved confirmation from my boos that I was going to site. Yes, they kept me in their tendering office for A MONTH. 😥 So when I recieved the news that I was finally going to be free, to see the sky, to work on the largest geothermal plant in Africa, I just went, stood in front of the office toilet mirror and did this.
No like seriously.
Me? Get a good job at a good site this soon with a good contractor like Hyundai? Well, here I am Lord. Hallelujah. I was floored. Flabbergasted. Grateful.
Now to break the news to my family.
My dad. “Go for it!”.
Sis. “I’m going to miss you.“
Other sis. “In school.”
LE BF. “PHEW, it’s tough“. >>>Now the last reaction deserves a whole separate post.
Me: Mixed emotions. Uncertainity. Hesitation(Wasn’t it all I ever wanted though?). Anticipation. Anxiety. Fear. Faith. Hope. Loneliness. It was a whole basket of paradoxical emotions. So confusing. (FYI, I know it’s these damn hormones. Gah! I wish I could tone them down a lil’ bit!)
So, I made the big move last month. It wasn’t easy. I don’t think I ever came across someone who said moving to a new city on their own was a breeze. If there is, he/she is the exception. I think it is the hardest thing I ever have had to do to date. I’ll be here up to the completion of the project. I am already learning so much and the best part of the experience is that I get to meet all these new people. We have people on site from Korea, China, New Zealand, India, Iran and of course, Kenyans from different parts of the country. I love the diversity on the site. the different people sharing their ‘project life’ experiences with me. The grim behind the glamour of this engineering profession that I bow down to. The fortune of projects which is a get money quick lose – lose it faster gig. (Who knew?) I think I have made contact and talked to at least 80-100 different people so far. And I look forward to meeting even more.
I am grateful. Watch this (my) space.
Pray towards your dream and it will come true.
If you are reading this post and you happen to pass by the Olkaria 2 Site in Naivasha, drop me a message. I will be happy to meet you. I don’t bite. Human beings, that is. Also follow my twitter @evabrenda_
Have a great weekend won’t you?
Very interesting read by Rosiesays
Whoo boy, and the ride never ends. A few days ago, I received a letter from a guy who wanted to respond to my street harassment piece with his own explanation of this pattern of male behavior. I find the letter to be quite disturbing and a little scary, but mostly it makes me sad.
I believe the writer is sincerely trying to participate in the conversation about street harassment, and for that I am truly appreciative. I’ve received enough junky hate mail on this subject to know what straight-up misplaced aggression looks like, and this isn’t it. He has granted me permission to republish in full and I have not edited his letter at all.
Here’s his caveat that he included: “I do not think that the letter offers a good or healthy perspective, however, I suspect that a portion of guys can relate to it, because at some…

At the beginning of this year/end of last year, I set some pretty solid resolutions for myself. I also came up with a Personal Development plan and wrote it down.
Tip 1: Always write down your resolutions. In a notebook, on your tablet, on your wall, make it into a picture/graphic collage kinda thing and set it as your wallpaper.
As I grow up, I realize that some little commitments that we make to ourselves, matter much more than any commitment we make with any other person. It is, however, easier to maintain a commitment to someone else, because there is a whole other person you are accountable to. Keeping a promise to yourself is easy to dismiss, because you can justify you to yourself very easily. It takes a simple 2 minute debate in your head. You win either way.
So what will it take for us to sit down, look at our goals and targets for ourselves, and actually make ourselves do it. Making Me accountable for/to Me. Knowing that no justification or circumstance should ever deter me from fulfilling my commitment to Me.
I’m still working on focusing on achieving my written down plans in 2013.
Tip 2: Never let circumstances determine your success. Circumstances WILL change. Adapt and create the circumstance you need to furnish your success.
This is one of the most vital lessons I have learnt this January. A mentor/partner is always good in helping you determine the ways to achieve and own your success.
Keep working. Keep dreaming. Keep learning.
The human brain is capable of so much more than we imagine. We limit ourselves way too often. I don’t know how much inspiration I can give, and to whom, but the little I can, I will.
Tip 3: Dress the way you’d like to be addressed.
I need a wardrobe upgrade. It is about that time. In order to create a brand, whether personal or for you and your partner, you need to have a certain image you portray. Work on it. Develop it. Then create a brand. The brand will be based on what you want to immediately pop into someone’s head when your name comes up. It may be your talent, it may be your restaurant, your designs, your physical appearance or even your sexual orientation. With a brand you got to be creative. Anything goes, but you have got to maintain that brand for it to be successful.
Tip 4: All the above tips are notes to self.
p.s: All the notes I have written are random things I have jotted down in my notebook from listening to young CEO’s and entrepreneurs. (listening, i.e, ‘reading’ their social forums and literally listening at social gatherings). All this wisdom is all around you. Just listen, will ya?
Come for Adventure. Stay for the Ride!
I have issues. So do you.
