Caught in the rat race 😒😒

If I have not been a victim, I would not have understood how easy it is to begin the rat race.

I don't know whether it should be called a blessing in disguise or maybe an uncommon blessing but a whole lot of things have changed within the last few weeks.

And for the fact that it took me several weeks to write this particular post then being in the rat race is as easy as ABC.

The story

On the 17th of February, 2022,I completed my one year compulsory national youth service and I was honoured with Certificate of National Service.

How sweet is that? 😊😊😊

A day before my passing out, I got a job as a Revenue Account Officer at United Nigeria Airline Company Limited. In Nigeria, this is a very rare opportunity. In fact, it is a blessing. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

I started work on the 1st of March, 2022 officially and since then many things have changed.

Have you heard that we face the consequences of our choices no matter how long it might take?

Well,it was my choice to become an Accountant and now I have to face the consequences of it by working under presence, working for long hours, getting familiar with numbers, being accountable and setting necessary internal control measures. All these are little out of the traditional attributes of an accountant in practice.

Initially, my career path is Audit and Assurance which I am still going to follow but for now I am in Aviation industry.

How is this a challenge?

Ever since I started the job, making a post has become a clash of titans. Not even a clash of titans, it was a complete take over because I've not been able to write any post ever since due to stress or maybe I am stressed because I did not have a well structured time management schedule? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”


Within my little time away from writing, I've lost some things.

Hive Newbie initiative

This really pained me because I already put in a lot of work but I did not get shortlisted because I got the update to verify my account on #hive-learners late which is the primary basis on which my application was nullified.

Maybe I could have become better if I had joined but the work kept me so busy most especially at the time when I was still learning about the new job and environment.

On this note, I want to say sorry to the initiative and I hope my application will be consider in future dates.

I also want to say sorry to @iskafan, my ebony motivator and @merit.ahama.

I could not meet up due to busy schedule from work. 😒😒😒

Free mind

To say writing does nothing for us is a big lie because I have been filled with a lot of things which I know specifically that if I was writing daily, I would have pour my mind out and be free.

More importantly, my inner being would have been at peace.


Another thing I missed is the 6weeks #dreemportchallenge.

Even though, I did not miss out entirely but I know I could have used that period to accomplish some individual objectives.

Oh! This is getting intense and I did not want it to look like a rant but I will try my best possible to keep my writing alive daily.

Thanks for being part of the journey so far.

Till I cross your path again, I am like a ready made pen in the hand of the creator. I am


I would be unfair if I tell you that you have no excuse.... But let me be diplomatic instead of being brutal with you.

I do know that most times I relieve stress by writing about my day. And you can do the same. Your job is the perfect avenue to create contents from.

I am saying this because the experience you gather on a daily basis is worth sharing with us. Those little thoughts you had when you work on so and so numbers can be shared your blog.

You can ask us for our opinions, and we can learn from one another.

If you think this is impossible, go through @tarazkp's blog, a large percentage of his writing is about his work, his life, family, etc.

What I am trying to say is that the various positions you find yourself in life is a platform to write about. All you have to do to commit a certain period of time in a day and do it.

If you do it consistently for 30 days, it might become an habit. You may not necessarily have to do it everyday for a start but if you start, 3-4 days a week, soon, 7 days a week will be piece of cake.

Try it. You'll be glad you did.

I hope you find ways to balance everything. Cheers.


Thank you so much and truly that is the main reason why I said in the blog post that if I had not been a victim, I would not have known how easy it is to become carried away in the rat race.

Even with all I knew, I was carried away with a little touch of being busy whereas truth be told, it was suppose to be another dimension to my writing.

I don't want to call it a problem but this confirms to me that I still need to learn more about change management because that is the basis of everything in life. If we are able to manage any change effectively, we will only come out stronger.

Much thanks to you for always showing up.

Maybe you should show up with came everyday in my dream πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”
