Hello 2020

Hi friends! A very happy new year to you! What are your hopes and dreams for the year, 2020? I really hope you have begun to take active steps in the direction of your goals. I started at a new job last week(thank God!), so I’m still learning the ropes and catching on as fast…

Time Lord

Whose report do you believe? I shall believe the report of the Lord’ This was a line from a song she loved, and it was no coincidence that she remembered it now.

Diary of a Reluctant Corper (Part 5)

She wondered about the others. No one really knew what awaited them in their place of primary assignment. Some would find out that they had been posted to defunct companies, companies who no longer needed corpers, and companies who would refused to pay even a stipend. Kemi felt a little sorry for herself, but quickly brushed the feeling aside.
