The 11th Hour.

Many at times we are greeted with a good morning at half past 11 and you have to look at the watch before replying to avoid being caught off guard.  Mornings are always fine for me, except Monday mornings of course.

It’s 5 minutes to 12 and I just get my eyes off the laptop, I can’t really explain why but I have already done it. i look around my desk and all I see is an empty glass of water and a pencil besides it.  Then I ask myself, ‘what if this pencil is feeling thirsty?’ I even don’t understand why I feel pity for a damn pencil, but aren’t we supposed to be caring? Immediately I am hit with a craving of coffee that I just can’t explain, it is so burning inside that you can think I am in my eleventh hour without it I die the next minute.

Cravings can be so disturbing, addicts of coffee and tea can tell you this especially if you are attacked by a crave while in the office. For coffee lovers it’s either your hand stretch lands you on a hot mug of your favorite coffee or bar of dark chocolate. I have encountered one before and I can guarantee you it is not a good thing. It was bad to an extent that I usually have a bar or two in my drawer just in case.

This is gets me asking, what is a craving, what causes them and how best can we overcome them. Is there like a domestic remedy to a craving. Is there a scientific explanation to it? Is it a mental condition? Well as I wait for a good concerned friend to answer that lemme grab a cup of Rockbern Coffee.  They have the best coffee you can ever need when you have a craving. Buy Kenya build Kenya, for I am patriotic enough I will stick to Rockbern! They know coffee. rum3

The Swift Squad #TakeControl

Seated on the chesterfield waiting for my turn to get my pedi done , I am busy on my phone but well everyone else is so why not. I am done scrolling through the twitter trends and there is nothing worth my attention, does a KFCB hash tag affect me in any way? Most definitely not but then I remember am a digital manager so I just gotta check what is all about because who knows? 

Pedicures

Before I click on my Instagram, a Safaricom text pops up and I am left wondering how on earth would my bundles be finished? But the truth is, when you receive the message it is because they are finished. First things first, I switch off my data just before I start being charged from my airtime. It gets me thinking what really happens with our bundles, does Safaricom have agent thieves that ‘eat’ our bundles kwanza usiku.

Well, now that my data is off it means am being deducted nothing at all, and am also not browsing. It feels good to know my airtime is safe and that I can only communicate when it is necessary. Hahaaa! Clearly no one steals our bundles, because if we switched off our data when not using the internet the we wouldn’t be complaining the way we do. Just the other day this guys, Safaricom had a system down time and we are sure they suffered some loss, could they be recovering with our data? Its a question any middle class is thinking about.

Wait! Just before I closed twitter, #TakeControl was trending top and I just wanna tweet @SafaricomLtd and tell them how I can take control of my data now that I know I can switch of my data and just save my bundles in happiness but alas! the tag is sponsored by Safaricom and its all about the SWIFT SQUAD, a brand awareness team that will teach us how to save our data while using the various social media platforms.

So just before I realized my phone was already on and I was back on the internet and surfing with precious airtime. We need to come to facts that Kenya is the leading country  in the African continent in regards to the internet penetration with a percentage of 82 at least owning a smartphone, thanks to Chinese brands in Kenya. With this is mind it is almost impossible to survive without internet, just before I switch off my data its your time to discover the Safaricom swift SquadLets take control of our bundles, join the swift squad.
