This is causing quite a stir because of the controversial nature of some of the jokes. Why didn’t they just go for an American?

New zodiac signs for 2011

I know a couple of people whose zodiac sign they will swear to you influences their daily life from the friends they make, their love life and even personal finance. I am not one of them. These new revelations concerning the changes to the dates for the various zodiac signs and the addition of a new one caught my attention recently whiles watching CNN. According to the report, astrologers have all but rubbished these new revelations preferring to stick the old zodiac calendar instead, simply because it fits better. Whatever that means. But who could blame them? The astrological industry is a huge one with support from the ordinary man on the street to pop superstars. Imagine having to call all your clients and telling them that you might have made a mistake with something as delicate as in pairing them up to the wife they’re about to marry.  The video below should shed more light on it.

The ups of growing up

At 25 I find myself caught between a bygone phase of careless foolishness and the coming one of responsibilities that proper adulthood demands.

I feel like the septuagenarian of the 20s not quite the centinarian 30 but getting there. Instead of probably limping around with a walking stick I have noticed that my left tendon aches after long walks. But that might just be a my body’s way of telling me to get off my butt in the mornings and workout instead of devouring my ‘koko and kose’ right out of bed, sometimes without brushing my teeth.

Doing an early morning walk or jogging is out of the question since like most people I’m sure, I love my sleep too much to be panting around the streets of Accra at 4am with the risk of getting ‘kwasheed’ to boot.

Another thing that is completely out of the question is a gym membership. Two things. Can’t afford it, yet and I would hate the look of walking around with man boobs just to prove you can take on the average guy in a fight or that you’re a stallion in bed.

Again at 25 I feel less pressure to do things that are not important. This might sound a tad trivial but you can’t imagine the pressure that my youth put on me to be generous with my stupidity. I have a suspicion this might have something to do with this fucked up part of our genetic code that we can’t get rid of even after millions of year of evolution.

By the laws of evolution, you HAVE to fuck up when growing up so you know that you ARE growing up.

Some would say it is a sign of independence and that it is a good thing but I disagree. Looking back with 20/20 vision I would have been a millionaire or been more successful in life had I not wasted time and resources on the ‘other stuff’.Nevertheless I would at the same time take the plunge and say without being overly self contradictory that I wouldn’t trade that youthful stupidity for all the salt in the ocean. I am a better man, a tougher-minded man,a smarter man, an even wiser man as a result.
