Episode Five: Taking A Time Out

Episode Five: Taking A Time Out


I had always wanted to do this for sometime. However, some factors prevented me. Sometimes, it is exactly what we need. To take a pause, away from our usual life. To think, to have a nice time. To exist in a world where nothing really happens, where our daily goal is to do whatever makes us happy. I literally had to deep into my savings to do this, but I did anyway.

Sometimes we want to wait for our big break so we can go on exquisite trips. We forget that there is almost always somewhere we can afford that gives us even as much happiness. That place for me is Enugu. Sometimes we work so hard, save a lot of money (or not so much, depending) and never really get to enjoy the money work so hard for. We just keep working to make money and forget to actually live, and what is life if we are not living it to the fullest? What is life if we are not pausing to think about how far we’ve come with it and where exactly we are headed?

On getting to Enugu, I woke up every morning and planned my day in my head. Once Ngozi left for work, I would do chores, have breakfast, rest for a while and then I’m off to make me happy. I was either going to the mall to have ice cream or shop for something, going to a buka to get abacha or another native food, going to the all new base to have pizza; going to have drinks, visiting a friend or doing whatever the hell I felt like.

Whatever made me happy, I did as long as it did not hurt anyone. I made sure to be the focus in my life even in something as minor as having a good time, I made sure to be the lead actor. Of course I paid a price, but it was worth every bit of it.
