Who Cares for the New Millenium?

The hue and cry for the new millennium has left me cold and totally unmoved. As is always the case with the Africans, I am forced to ask if it really is our millennium.

Taking into account that most rural Africans would not even know a new year has come let alone a new millennium, and adding to these millions of Muslims who have their own calendar (and are not yet close to the twentieth century) and the Ethiopians, who also have their own calendar and who would be seven years shy of 2000 when January comes, I dare to affirm that the so called millennium is not our affair.

So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years.

25 Things You Should Have Figured Out By The Age Of 25

Hi,

I am having a rough week.A terrible week even.I am in no mood for blogging but this is the life I signed up for.I have to do this list because I will refer to it when I turn 25, I am two years shy of 25.Here’s my list:
