Things I wish I could do so well

Sometimes all you need are well-chosen words cleverly arranged to capture a picture-perfect feeling because long paragraphs do not always cut it. Poetry leaves a lot to the imagination. It has the power to take new meaning with differing moods. There is something about poetry that speaks to the soul. If only I could be poetry whenever I choose…

Wouldn’t you like it, to be the fastest man on earth? To pose for a pic while some are sweating to catch up with you. I was never a runner but Bolt made running look so cool.

I don’t intend to be nerdy but I wish I had a better appreciation of Information Systems. This is one of those things I fear I am sometimes charged money when there isn’t much being done. Is it just me? I have nothing against paying for services but technological literacy would really be handy in this information age.

  1. Ey I remember in Zim there was a time people would get into town to get whatsapp installed on their phones and even to get music downloaded for them. Not sure if it still happens but that was crazy😂. Im with you on this one.

    1. Hahaha that WhatsApp thing is still happening, and the internet shut down brought in new terms like VPN. Now people are sometimes told phone yenyu irikuda VPN when its all but a simple thing. I recently taught myself to install the plugin for the subscription slide on a blog.. Someone had said they want my “liver” for it. 😂😂

      1. Hahaha. VPN has become normal in Uganda. It started in Feb 2016 when there was a social media shutdown by the government. It then spread out when the government introduced a social media tax last year.

        I think I should write about some of these on the day we’ll be sharing about the internet in Africa.

      2. Definitely you should Jacob! Someone must document for the future generation. Imagine in 2050 someone reading that people were charged for VPN installation! So unbelievable yet sad like we feel when we are told that people used to wait for months to receive information through a letter.
