“I Just Got A Job After Going Through Trying Times ” – Nairalander @Kateskitty

Published

on

First I want to thank God for my new job, I just can’t thank you enough.
Now, this is my story.
I
lost my parents when I was still in secondary school and because of
that, I had no one to sponsor me through university. Except for one
uncle of mine who took me in and promised to sponsor my university
education. I’m not going to speak ill of my uncle because he’s late now
(God rest his soul) but also because he taught me everything I know
about computers today.

My uncle instead of enrolling me in the
university like he promised, chose to put me to work in his cyber cafe
business center. I worked there for years until I realized my uncle was
never going to fulfill his promise, so I saved up and enrolled myself in
NOUN without his knowledge.

Fast forward four years later, I
finished my program from NOUN last year. But in between those four-years
where one of the toughest period of my life because,
1. my uncle passed away during that period
2. his cyber cafe business closed down because his children ran the place to the ground.
3. I was now a student but unemployed

So with the skills I had working in my uncle’s cyber cafe I managed to get another job (for 12,000 back in 2014).

Now,
last year just 2 months after I said goodbye to NOUN I got a job (for
30,000). While now working as a graduate, I built some more job
experience and acquired 2 certificates on Android app development and
Web development. I did this job for 10 months, every night I would
search Linkedin, Nairaland, Jobberman and other job sites for better
opportunities until this April.

One of my application clicked and
I was invited for an interview. I later made it to the second stage and
finally was made an offer (150,000). I can’t thank God enough for
seeing me through it all, I’m almost in tears.

Another funny
thing about my life is that I have a couple of well-placed uncles I
could run to who could put me in a better position than the one I got
but I preferred not to because I believe my God and I are a team.
I look at my new job and I’m amazed that my tithe now is going to be more than my entire salary back in 2014, what can I say…

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
