That Monster on your Palm

Today morning as I was heading to work I noticed something that really got me thinking. As I boarded the “matatu”, I couldn’t help but notice that out of the 34 people on board only 6 were not on their smartphones, that includes the conductor and the driver, the rest were of what I would call the older generation.

Every one else was heads down, eyes glued to the screens on their mobile phones including myself. There were occasional giggles from various people which I assumed they were amused by something they saw or read on their phones and not what Larry Asego and Mwalimu King’ang’i were talking about on radio.

I have nothing against people owning smartphones, if anything they have made life easy by making communication easier, but I thing we are taking it too far. What happened to the days when one would board a matatu, seat next to someone else and have a meaningful conversation the whole journey? This days if you want to communicate to someone you are seated next to you most probably have to show then something intriguing on your phone.


Gone are the days when men used to approach a girl they admire either in a matatu or in the streets. these days we go online and a relationship starts even before people actually meet. The smartphone does not really help people communicate but instead keeps people from communicating. Imajine at a dinning room where a family is having their dinner and everybody is on their phone hence no one is talking to the other, what kind of picture does that create?

I believe the smartphone is actually a curse but it is a curse we all accepted and have learnt to live with.

How time actually tricks us

Time is truly a complicated matter. Remember how as a child you were waiting for your birthday and how it seemed to take forever to arrive? And now as an adult, the time from Monday to Sunday passes all too briefly.

How does time do that? How does time trick us?
Five minutes seems to be a definite time limit. However, after five minutes, ask ten people how it passed for them, did it go quick or did it seem long? We can bet that each of them would have a different opinion.

A few recently done studies state that social networks and smart devices are “stealing” our time more than we think about it. We are always checking the latest news or messages, often wasting time, and we become new technologies’ hostages. In fact, a 2013 Internet Trends report by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers shows that people check their phones up to 150 times a day. According to RawHide, “Every year, teens spend almost 7 full work days taking selfies.”


However, if you don’t want tomorrow to be a mystery, you should realize that every moment is now, because the past and future concepts become one. The essence lies in the fact that every event in the past and the future is and will be affected by what we do now.


8 Ways To Understand Words Most Women Use

Men and women are very distinct creatures. While men have a tendency to be straightforward, women are often not so simple.

relationship issues

Unlike men, women often uses hints and insinuations to steer you in their direction, and when trying to understand what they really mean, you are sometimes better off reading between the lines. Here are 8 ways to understand what women say during conversations:

1. “Fine.”

This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right.

2. “Just give me five minutes.

If she is getting dressed, this means 30 minutes.

3. “Where is our relationship going?”

What she means is that she would like for you to suggest the idea of the two of you to graduating to a more serious and exclusive relationship.

4. “Nothing.

This word ALWAYS means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with “Nothing” usually end with “Fine.”

5. “Go ahead.”

This is not permission–it’s a dare. Whatever it is, do it at your own risk!

6. “That’s okay.”

This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. It means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7. “A guy was flirting with me.”

She wants you to know that other men are interested in her and that you should appreciate what you have.

8. “Don’t Worry About It, I Got It.” 

Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a she has asked you to do several times, but is now doing it herself since you’ve neglected it. This will later result in you asking “What’s wrong?”

6 Deadly Things You Should Never Say To Someone

There are some sentences that act like deadly silent ninjas, killing self-confidence and antagonizing your friends, family and colleagues—the worst thing is that you might not even realize it.

Mixed race man with a headache

You’ve just said something wrong. The other person is looking at you with a red angry face, but the issue is not about what you’ve said, it’s about what they’ve heard. Here are 6 things you should never say to anyone:

1. “I don’t care”

What they hear when you say that: “Leave me alone. I have better things to do than listen to you.”

Explain why you would love to hear about that subject, and why “right now” is not the best time for you. Everybody matters. Not caring about someone is denying their existence: If people matter for you, you will matter for them.

2. “You’re wrong”

What they hear when you say that : “You are stupid. You know nothing. You’re worthless.”

Always ask questions to make sure you and the other person are working on the same assumptions. Never be too fast to criticize.

3. “You can’t do it”

What they hear when you say that: “You don’t have what it takes to do it, no matter how hard you try; So why do you even try?”

Why would you set someone up for failure? I understand that you don’t want your friend to have delusions, and you could feel that it is your duty to stop that person before they hurt themselves, but I would like to ask you: how can you judge what is good for somebody? And what if failure was the best path for growth?

Always encourage people who have chosen a challenging path.Good judgement comes with experience, but experience comes from bad judgement

4. “This should be easy”

What they hear when you say that: “It’s easy for most people. If you have trouble doing it, there is probably something wrong about you”

If someone is struggling and coming for help, then they have trust you enough to show you their weakness. Don’t rub their face in it by saying “This should be easy”. Acknowledge the challenges that people encounter and value their commitment to overcome them.

5. “I told you so”

What they hear when you say that: “You did not listen to me. That’s all your fault. I’m so much better than you.”

Don’t keep tabs on who’s right and who’s wrong. If it were a competition, the one keeping tabs would be the one losing. Help other people at all times than discouraging them, it hurts them even more.

6. “As I just said before…”

What they hear: “You don’t listen to me. You’re making me repeat myself. You’re so annoying and dumb”

This is a very sneaky conversation killer. If someone asks you a question and you point out that you’ve already answered it, then you’re killing their willingness to learn, or even to have a slight interest in what you say.

It is good to Say the same thing in another way and by illustrating it differently.
