I’m listening to some afrobeats while revising and I saw this comment and I had to capture it for future reference.
In one of my lectures a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about CVs and Job applications for engineering. I raised my hand to ask a question about social networks because of how vocal I can be about politics with my twitter and facebook.
I said “So if i were to apply for Shell, God forbid, would I have to refrain what I say about them on twitter?”
It’s the ‘God forbid’ that got everyone’s attention. As engineers a lot of us would consider working for the Oil giants: Shell, Exxon, BP etc
Personally however, I don’t see how anyone with any knowledge of history and ounce of ethical knowledge can work for such corrupt capitalistic leeches.
But I am forced to change my attitude because a lot of them have branches in engineering or work with engineering companies. As a Nigerian born, how can I work for a company that actively ruins lives day by day from the country I was raised? How can I do that? The dilemma exists and will continue to do so because oil companies are not dying out, not now, not for the next 60 years.
Admittedly, I shouldn’t have been so confrontational in lectures, I didn’t even know I was that passionate until it came out. I’ve never met anyone who was proud to say they work for Shell? God forbid I ever do work for an oil company. I want to fight them with renewable energy.
thanks guys :D
God is good to me even when I’m not man!
Will be working with a small renewable energy company in Kisumu.
July - September.
Right now, I have to focus on exams but I might have to go to the London embassy. I still hold a Nigerian passport. I have to think about accommodation, flights, aaaaaaaaaah so much.
One step at a time.
This Summer I will be combining my two greatest passions - Africa and Renewable Energy. :D
At Berea some of the Greeks and Jews “received the Word with all readiness, and searched the scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so”
And with such passion is how I should study the Word. It is interesting that they specify ‘daily’. Not a day should go by where we haven’t mulled over something in the Word.
Then Paul goes to Athens and is reasoning with the philosophers, bright and inquisitive minds and about ‘THE UNKNOWN GOD’ Paul says ‘the hope is that we might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being’.
Then he shows a great awareness of the culture he is in by quoting one of their poets. This is how to relate to people, we have to know them and their culture, their books and literature. “For we are also His offspring”.
I wonder who that Greek poet was…
She said “Tip, all I wanna do is feel love, even if I know it ain’t real love
Even if I know a nigga only finna hit it then never call back, I still fuck”
And that’s fucked up
- T. I - Memories Back Then
i know this isn’t love. nothing close to it. common sense does not exist when the dick gets hard. bible verses vaporize when i;m horny. some of the thoughts after climax are the most troubling. “WTF am I doing here?”, “do i even respect myself?”
girls get pissed off when you don’t stay after you nut. they want to cuddle and kiss. and i just want to go. i don’t want to be around.
funny thing is, i’m still a virgin. slutty virgin at that. it puts me at a real disharmony with my conscience though. i’m experimenting. with her body. she says she’s fine with it. i know better.
