It’s exactly 159 days, 21 hours and some odd minutes since the Kenyan government called for the need for us to stay away from public gatherings and essentially #stayathome.
In that time I have:
- Published a book: Zuri: The Chronicler of Enzi
- Written a shortie short story/ novella: In the Quiet
- Traveled back to my area of work to see to the construction of 4 classrooms , 2-per community school
- Gained weight
- Started, quit, started, forgot about, started working out.
- Consumed at least 3 cups of tea a day/ some days at least 4 cups of coffee
- Drank more water
- Slept in (and I love sleeping in on Saturdays)
- Signed up for online classes: I just quit the one for African Leadership Institution because with over 1,000 participants and the never ending telegram messages, I missed out on signing in and with 5 error messages- I was done!
- Got accepted into the New Heights Leadership Program: a 3-month online intensive session that merges both Christian Faith and Leading with Integrity in the modern world.
On reading: I just finished reading Honest to Greatness by Peter Kozodoy and he explores how transparency is key to sustaining organizations, companies and our interactions not just with people but also with what we create.
Status Check: A friend asked me yesterday, on a scale of zero to one hundred, how pissed off are you with the corruption in the Kenyan government? I shot him a look and he simply said “that pissed off?” See, people have been displaced, lost their jobs, their loved ones, our health care workers are at the frontline yet they’re unpaid, without PPE kits and it doesn’t help that the body set in place to regulate all this is busy trading with kits that could save lives. Wouldn’t you lose it if someone was stealing billions meant to ensure your access to health care which you are over taxed for?
On this new WordPress Editor: Yes, I’m learning that free is expensive, because I don’t like it one bit and switching to the Classic Editor means installing it and yes…I’ve got to be on a paid plan to do that. Or maybe I’m just sleepy- who knows, I will look into it when I can, if I hate it…it’s always good to explore options I guess.
I’m looking forward to September! Who knew we’d be this close to ending 2020 when we started out in January?
Have an awesome week. Stay safe. Stay hydrated. Above all choose kindness, we need it.
