I cant believe 2k8 is finally over. i must say its been the shortest year of my life filled with all sorts of happenings.
For starters, i made so many new friends. Had too many parties in my house that i have decided come 2k9 i'll charge everyone who wants to hold a party there. Been to almost all the bars in town and most of the highly billed social events in town. Enough of all that sh*t. The weekly rock night and friday binges, a'ma drop them to once or twice a month in the new year.
Ive also been a regular to church but mostly on weddings and funerals.(definately has to change next year). A number of people i know have passed on this year. The first being in around March. Santos a very talented cricketer passed on. Come May and another great sportsman Ox (Oketcho Wilbrod) passed on. June 28, the most hurting; Philip tendo drowned while on study holiday in Uganda. Exactly a month after PIP, Jesse Kagoda fell from garden city and died. Come september, ma uncle Tom died from pneumonia just 3 days after the son's wedding. Yu can now imagine how many funeral services i attended.
It is in the same year that i quit my job. This wasn't the normal resignation where you write a resignation letter, given a good luck pat on the back by fellow staff and a package from management for a job well done. I ended my job in a fist fight with my boss of barely 2 months.
Stayed home for a good one month and later got another very interesting job on paper and in the pocket but very very boring in practice. still hanging in their though.
In this same year i got to meet the very elite, kind and very humourous Ugandans known as the bloggers. These guys and ladies are for "world...". Their parties are a must attend and the monthly BHHs yu only miss if you must. I have learnt alot from their various posts and also been entertained a great deal. Bloggers ye rock.
This year i havent been so close with my family memebers except my camppus sister whom i always keep so close. She's enjoyed more of ma soft earned dimes to which i have no regrets as i'd rather run broke than have a ki-sugar daddy provide for her. Which reminds me its this same gal that almost gave me a heart attack when she boldly introduced some ka-guy as her boyfriend. Still trying to find out which bars this dude goes to.
As regards relationships, i have managed to stay out of one although i was active. Met the most beautiful to the non performers and the craziest gals in Uganda. This was the year of "pick ups". Not even in my campus days did things come that easy. The ultimate was ma mulokole wench whom i told straight up ours was going nowhere. As the year drifted by, my luck seemed to be drifting away as well. However, the end has been a happy one.

And the greatest sport/ activity/ pass time this year was Spin the Bottle. the saying goes, "one good turn............."

I think am ready to take on 2k9 and am dropping most of my crazy habits as her flight is one day away.

Otherwise, may yu all have a blessed new year and lets keep the fire burning.

What do yu think?

Its been a while since i last posted here.My life's just been the same old. An outing here, a house party there, a brokenheart along the way, etc etc.

Just yesterday i had a job interview. This is a really good job with a good salary (yet to confirm how much) and alot of benefits. Two issues here.First I haven't gotten the job yet although i left a great impression on the panel.The MD didnt hesitate to tell me before i left the interview room. Second issue is that i have been on my current job for only 4 months now. My current job was interesting in the first month only. Apparently my immediate boss is based in Nairobi and the other in RSA. The pay is very good; actually in Obama's currency. No one to follow me around. All the good things you would wish for in a job.However, this job ceased to be interesting after the first month. It is now very boring. Imagine a job where everyday at 3pm yu are at yo desk dosing away due to lack of what to do. I am only busy on only Wednesday and fridays of some weeks. This job is totally boring. No challenges. Everything is just flat. Call the airline company to confirm cargo arrival. Send someone to pick the documents and thats a day gone. Following day get in touch with another firm that handles the clearance with customs and find out how far they've gone with the customs clearance. Third day find out if cargo is delivered to client's premises. Thats a week gone. Can you imagine. this job is not helping me in my career growth.
It is for this reason that i decided to find something else to do. Get to work, outline my tasks for the day and make sure i dont leave office till all tasks are accomplished. That way i'll get some personal satisfaction and at the end of the month enjoy my monies for a job well done.
Asked a few friends for advise and some said i should hang in here as things may brighten up in the near future while others can't believe ive stayed on this job this long.
My people what should i do? Even if i don't get this new job i was interviewed for, i still have so many other opportunities out there.

On a different note, there are so many company xmas parties going on and mine being a one man company in Uganda, there wont be a party for me. However, i plan on having the biggest corporate party. It started yesterday by going to the cinema to watch Eagle eye. Its a good movie. Today true Body lies, Wednesday a drink for me self. The party is to stretch all the way to the start of next year.

January 3rd is also fast approaching. A very beautiful lady is returning to Uganda from France that day. Between Jan 3rd and 1st February.............simanyi. We are both very excited. One problem tho; she wants us to try out some new stuff which am not ready to try out. i am not going to do it in the OTHER opening.

Back to the new job. Once i get it, it may entail me to leave my lovely town of Ntinda as the offices are far away from Ntinda. Maybe if that rumour about getting an office ride is true.

Otherwise may yu all have a blessed festive season.
