Step 4 (In Betweens)

In between there is a lot of stuff going on. My website is yet to be made, there is hightened insecurity in Kenya so traveling home late is really not the best of ideas.
Other in betweens. I mentioned my grades were not that bad. So, my folks thought I could easily get a job. But hey, straight from college, I sent only 5 application letters, then decided that was not for me. So they don't understand why and how I can go on living frugally when I could easily get a job. Well, lets say, jobs no matter how bright you are don't come easily and two, I was -and still are- not feeling that vibe. We've discussed time and again but they still insist. But when the see the fire in my eyes, they know they are fighting a loosing battle.
At 24 really, what do I know. I was so in to business that I decided further education could wait. Bill Gates got his degree from Harvard Last week! After 30 something years! So, with the counsel of a wise old owl, my parents bemoaned how important further studies were. So yes, I listened and I decided to do something about it. So, some scholarship thing came up and as I write, am waiting for the results. I am really praying it goes through. One, so that my parents know am back in school, and two, for my own sake. I admit, yes, we all do need further education.
Other in betweens. Another lecturer I met in Japan. Prof. -will ask if I can put his name here- heard of what I was doing and said he had an idea which he needed someone in Kenya to assist him with. And so, he sold me his idea. We troubleshot it and decided to go ahead. That also is now on going. Its in its infancy. Its waiting for a few details here and there and hopefully by September, it will have kicked off.
It looks like a tall order. Two businesses and a masters degree. I know I might be asking a lot from me but as I said, start somewhere. The rest will take care of itself.
So there you have it. That is my story so far. There is so much more to say but I believe all details will fall in place when time comes and we will write on about it. I believe this blog will form an outlet for my evening stress! But I pray it will help someone who is in the same position as I am, or is thinking to go the same way I have chosen. Better yet, I hope someone has nothing to do and they just come here to read what I've been up to! That is the ultimate Encouragement. You might get to read this a few months from now, but let me know what you think.
Its 20:00 hours. Am out!
