Ive been cursed by Blogshedding or rather ive been blogshedded for the past month or so. Actually im still suffering this horrible affliction, im currently typing this on my mobile. What does being blogshedded mean? It means the inability to access the internet due to one or more unforseen circumstances primarily the fact that my pc is in its last moments of life and has developed the annoying habit of crashing and restarting every 15mins, the only way to remedy this crisis is to either to send the pc for sky diving without the parachute or using a sledgehammer and working out our differences amicably, i think the latter is suitable. For a moment you were expecting me to blame eskom, which is the logical blameworthy culprit these days. You break a glass...blame eskom, you stub your toe into a wall or chair.....blame eskom, you start going bald.....blame eskom......you find your garden infested with mutant dassies trying to take over your neighbourhood and then the world.....blame eskom! Jacob zuma probably wishes there was load shedding around the time when he had "consensual sexual relations" he could have said he couldn find a condom in the dark or that "Aids" was unable to see him in the dark so he was safe. Anyways...
This gives me no time to blog let alone do work on my pc which to say the least is very very annoying. I intended to do a New years post and a whole resolutions thing but ive honestly had no time. Im currently on vac work at another firm and its awesome. Getting lots of experience and just loving the opportunity to learn and grow as a fledgling lawyer.
Besides the weather eskom has certainly darkened my days. Rolling blackouts, the country in crisis , that song "We've got the power" being banned! Not really its just been stuck in my head, and is annoying considering we dont have any power. So should we all start "packing our bags and go" , run away from the possible "zimbabwe 2: lights out".
Im not sure im still a patriot and i love this country and hate to admit it but we are in serious serious trouble. This is not as bad as the way bafana bafana play but its still bad. We are loosing millions , jobs are being threatened and confidence in South Africa's Ability to lead Africa in the global stage and be the one bright spark in a continent that is constantly embroiled in turmoil is in jeopardy....or have i missed the bus and has our place as leaders of the African renaissance long gone, washed down the drain with our politicians dirty laundry?
This country is my home but she is making it very hard to beat off the doom and gloomers who are a dime a dozen and defend her, which i have done and constantly will do even if im the last voice echoing.
Heres hoping that we are able to ride this crisis out and become a better nation and a better country.
sorry for the disjointed post. Just random thoughts
