Just finished reading bits and pieces of “New Vision”-One of Uganda’s daily papers and I am completely and utterly jaded! like fu*k that!
Because everything is so bloody dismal. Just plain depressing, sad, sickening, poor , dying dead!
I used to be “Africa’s” Number One fan. Nothing was too wrong, too sad, too corrupt etc etc about “home”. “Just give it time” was my mantra “look at how well Kenya is doing, see how far Uganda has come”. I was a die hard believer in our people and continent.
These days there’s just a big blah feeling in my mouth and soul about “home”.
I no longer watch the news too avidly. No longer read “home” newspapers daily. I generally don’t give a shit.
Even about political stuff here. I don’t care.
Apathy has paid a visit and seems like she’s here to stay and I don’t really mind.
Now I just care about my family and trying to make a GOOD living in this world.
Everything else is just plain irrelevant. I looked at my circle of influence and figured that everything else was just bogus.
And I feel free!!!!!
