Yes!I am a proud owner of one regret if not two!

Ask me weather I have regret in life and I will tell you yes!!!
Trust me its not that cutest girl I broke up in college without even having kissed her ati was playin safe preserving her…..nope…[okay there is little of dat, but its not the main thing am tokin bout here]

Am really devastated by he fact that I never participated in..okay le mi put it this way..if am given one chance to go back to that little boy I was, I would join Church worship team and take every opportunity to participate in singing competitions and join school choirs ….those many days I spent with my friend peter a DJ at club oyster shell Nakuru dancing and never touching the systems just ignorant …I wouldn’t like to blame mum but I wish from when I was young she natured my music interest.

Le mi give you a brief history

In Africa most parents believe you have to excel in academics to have a good life , anything apart from that is considered a rebellion, the likes of music, sports, art etc and to some extreme examples like my mum believed I have to excel in science and I have to be specifically a teacher because teachers are always in demand[tho poorly paid, [she would tell me better small salary than nothing at all, and it made sence at that time] now, I was molded to b’live that, in campus I sucked my life by spending many hours in BLT and Chriromo library cracking dem mathematics formulas especially differentia equations, Calculus, Linear algebra, Vector analysis [ I gat me myself a bloody E in vectors I just couldn’t get it] I hated math. when I was leaving secondary, I had A- in math but in Campus I met some stuff with only lettrs x,y,z a etc and some weird signs like α β ∞ ∑ and I thot what the hell!? lost the bearing totally , in differential equation one calculation could take two full pages and I couldn’t see where I will apply that in life so that mentality and the fact that in campus especially public universities no one cares, they give u handouts and u go cram or do whatever u will and meet in exam week [some lectures after realizing they haven’t taught, they would come the last week, do some mathematical examples in class and set that as exams..so no one fails as long as u attend the last class to exam..really weaked] got me perfom very very poorly in mathematics.
Hehe come to chemistry over the years I grew interes in chemistry so much and in secondary school I aspired to become a chemical Engeneer but I dint do Physics !? damn! The reason being we had this music teacher, this moron [God help me forgive him] used to pick on me every lesson and call me names like cattle rustler, I hated him and I hated physics..i got messed in that area so dint do physics wish I meet him now in the streets and give him a piece of my mind ..in campus the cozy relationship between me and chemistry grew deeper and I took it to the next level , I worked hard dis a lot of reading an by third year I was given a chance to specialize in chemistry , so I did Inorganic, Organic, Physical, Industrial ,Heterocyclic and even Nuclear and Radiation chemistry courses and I loved every part of chemistry on my project I synthesized glucagons and I was so so exited ..i performed well and graduated with second class upper division waw!! That was God ….thank God I passed and I got a job! Am happy it pays my bills and pays for other courses like music and also help my mum am happy and enjoy it but am I applying my chemistry!? Sadly nope! So is most of my class mates most with even first class in Chemistry are working with banks Equity, KCB, Barclays and other institutions and they totally changed their careers and did MBA etc reasons being scientist aren’t well recognized in Africa, we have very few firms that pay scientist well. Others are Indian firms and le mi tell you the last place u wanna work is in those companies they don’t value ur education ..nor ur safety I don’t wanna go there..
So at the end of the day u have to pay the bills and you get someone who pays you well and what do u do ditch your career ambitions be flexible and adapt to new environment that’s what is happening with me and many others here , I wish the system could change so that we don’t have to loose a lot of resources in Campus, but that is good still , they say the first degree is a bouncing board and shows you that ur teachable and from there you can choose your career..they say the next degree is what determines what your career is !? as for me I don’t thing I wanna do chemistry again life has changed I will do MBA and music . the place I work has transformed me and I thing I love marketing so much because I have seen its results and impact and I know I have a gift in marketing too, I have worked with customers and learned a lot on how serving customers well can transform your business and I have loved business stuff much …am talented in music too but I wish I knew this early in age and natured it.

So where wa we??? Okay on the litte ignorant lad Lawrence 15 years ago..education has transformed me and the lives of many members of my family , I came from a humble background and those that educated their kids, it has worked for them 100% and I wouldn’t blame my mum for insisting on my books alone and not to be obstructed by music and other stuff and I love her for that, but also I would much more be happier now if I was able to do music stuff little here and there because nomatter what else I do there is a void that is filled only when am doing music..but guess what its never too late and that’s why I decided this year I will do music production classes and for your information I have made several tracks I have learnt a lot and the inspiration to this post today is a very nice reggae track I made yesterday and its sooooooo nice ..i listen to it like hours I cant believe its like magic ….. am holding it like my child its soso fulfilling and that’s the difference of me doing my music yourself than going to the producer ..you get to birth your awn idear and connect with the song so so..u feel me !?
Conclusion is ; I live one day at a time and enjoy, do my best where I am weather its in career path or not, as long as am doing something, then that’s what God intends for me to do
May be one day I will see the sense in all this ..i don’t want to be in the losers club of demotivated guyz who are stuck in jobs they don’t want, I have to stay motivated and find purpose in the pace I am.., I have onlu one life and every minute I spend stressed am being unfair to myself…okay I do agree sometimes its crazy hard and u feel like running away but I wasn’t promised a smooth slid way in life ..
Am tired of typing sorry will edit the post later and add other stuff
Stay blessed!

Okay I know ur wondering Y is it a big news, okay first of all le mi give ya a brief history , before I received Christ some years back in Campus, I, like any other dude out there[ we love ladies so so] used to go around and getting laid by every chic I meet,[and we used to be in a gang of 4 dudes named Bastic boys, so we would sit and discuss our experiences and the new territories we have conquered ,very sick and lame]now, we used to carry condoms in our back pocket and coz of some reasons SOMETIMES the condom could bust when on the act, and one day it did, I was with a chic we used to bang the four of us,and there was roomers that she had slept with a police[police are danger, they have a history of dogging and many including military men die of AIDS so so much]that exposed me to danger, before I went to campus I was forced to undergo the test, well I was so so scared like a chicken, I had decided if am positive, I will run away from home and go get me some job away where no one knows me ..i was really scared but thank God it was well ..i was exited so much, that was like 7 years ago,Christ had mercy and changed my twisted life I became a good boy, and has never slept with a girl since…okay am lying.. okay there are like one or two occasions but we sorted out with God [he he I just remembered one thing this is funny in that group tulikuanga damn players till when went and got saved people said that we have gone to church to get the church girls after sleeping with all the ladies outside church…[people can be so cruel on young converted youths damn] , and also one of the greatest fear we had before we got born again is ‘people will say we got born again after realizing we have HIV..thats what they gonna say..and we cant allow that to happen..so lets be sinners till we got married lol’ that was bull crap] apart from HIV we put ourselves in many dangers many times we had to carry daggers etc coz of girls and run away from police after playing with rich mans daughter..please don’t remind me that story ..okay i will post it next how a rich mans daughter put us in tight shit i had to run away from home..its one crazy damn stupid story you will love.. i promise…

Now where was I ??????oohhh I getting to slaughter house? no ..what was i talking about??…….oohh i have remembered, okay I wont tell you all details or what made me go, but so that u may not make your stories there is a lady who really insisted and adviced I had to go for a test and its good ..i was still scared ..what if am positive whats gonna happen …plz tell me? ..’its like getting sentenced to hang and u know when u gonna die’ ..’its like being in death raw inmate’ i silently thought all night long …u feel me? ..so I tried avoiding it but ..i couldn’t run forever I had to face the giant of fear that had mutated over the years into a monster a killer…a dragon waiting to devour me alive…thank God on Friday 8th Jan 2008 after waiting for result for hours the doctor gave out the result….It was like being born a new i thank God I now know my status …u see I have seen many of my friends go down with HIV even a relative its scary ..and my advice is to all ppls please ‘jua hali yako, chanuka na utembelee kitua , chukua control ya maisha yako’ go for HIV test and take control of your life its not good to stay in the dark

..now am confidence I cant now risk having sex till I get marred to that girl that God has in store, and we have to go for HIV test before then …its good to know your status, if you are positive by knowing early enough, u will get proper medication and live a normal life upto even 20 yrs ,,yeah ! its true, there is a lady in Kenya, I saw in a magazine she has been positive for kedo 20 yrs now, and u can protect the ones u love, nowadays there are even couples, one partner is negative the other positive and they have healthy kids free of HIV, but that is impossible if we don’t go to VCT ..i hate it when I remember way HIV positive people are stigmatized in the world people say u better have cancer than HIV and it doesn’t mean if u have HIV ur a sinner or a bad guy its just a disease okay
Please le me continue sometimes later that’s enough for today ..cheers love yah…at least i am being open to you my friend not that i glory in bad behaviors of that time , but i wanna u know me alittle and now am changed dude..trust me ..don’t believe what u read about me on facebook its overrated on the negative lol kidding

Should Kenya go for its TEST?

it started with drought wracking throughout our sovereign nation, farmers lost thousand of livestock, people lost their lives to hunger, rivers wells dried up …water in the dams went down in level causing low power, hence rationing[we mainly depend on hydro electricity but i would love the country to invest more on geothermal power, though initial cost is very very high but its very reliable and in long term the money will be recovered, its inexhaustible as long as the earths crust is red hot, and as you know, the water they use to turn turbines is recycled] another thing that followed was water rationing even in Nairobi ..dont wanna remember that….
Immediately after drought, cases of cholera started being reported in Nairobi slums like Mukuru kwa Njenga [..its next to where i live, i buy sukuma wiki there..am lying again, i don’t cook ..i buy fruits there]
Also in other parts like Turkana, many pple died mostly due to fact that its long journey before they can get a medical center, many died on the way, tok bout ‘mkurupuko wa maradhi’
As if not yet over El nino rains came rioting like ..like..like..[what riots more that University of Nairobi students? am an Alumni lakini Magoha the Vice Chancellor ame do mambo sikuhizi hakuna kutupa mawe te hehe] the rains has killed more than twenty people, leaving more than 300000 citizens homeless in Turkana, Mogotio, Marigat [where i grew up in next to lake Baringo] Rongai, Narok, millions of property destroyed including livestock , building collapsing like the one in Kiambu killing mtu tatu..and the rains are still falling like the flood gates are being opened …

Lastly a dude called Abdullah al Faisal who once was convicted by U.K court for inciting terrorism through his teachings [btw he is a Muslim cleric] is stuck in our country after other nation refuse him saying he is a terrorist …even major airlines dont wanna give him a ride back to Jamaica where he came from…men that is not good..the government of Kenya [we have a bad history of terrorist killing our people remember the famous bomb blast in Nairobi and Kikambala?] want him gone but the last attempt flopped after he was returned back from Nigeria..as we speak he is in some prison locked….
That’s y we really need prayers in the country, really crazy things have been happening

new year

a lovely year 2010 , well everyone is talking bout resolutions , one thing bout me , am gonna try to do my best in what am doing, work and music wise , well spiritually am gonna try to get more Sundays off but i have no big spiritual ambitions like years back..after many years i have come to kinda see that, what i do really matters alot than what i pray and believe for? maybe am a bit canal but thats it, of course i need Gods blessings in what i do , but my success is largely determined by what i do if i sleep no matter what kind of faith i apply i will not succeed , i have been in intercessory ministry for like many years till 08′ [2003-2008]and looking back what i see is what i decided to do , and i prayed for God to bless it.
another thing the bible says our ways are far way different from Gods ways , every time i make my plans , things just don’t happen like that…
you can never be sure bout the future , so i live stress free , Gods has his ways and as long as you trust in him everything will work out for Good even when ur in shit God will turn it for His Glory.
so this year is save as much money as possible, finish my music classes and i might start MBA by Sep God wiling. I smell things might be a good year for me ..tings a gwan!…..i bless God!
as for last years mistakes i take responsibilities and as a learning lessons and it will be a blessing, it says in Romans ‘anything that happens happens for the good of those that love the LORD and are called according to his purpose’

life’s cruel, it screws wit both good n bad guyz, sinners and prayer warriors same, the beauty of it is even when it happens God turns it for good of those who trust in Him, thats my attitude this year am sensing great things gonna happen ..that means even great challenges too, but wit God i will make it..thats what hope does!
