Here’s the story so far, was doing my final year at NUST and I decided to give my full attention to that. And then straight after that was done came winter. Anybody who knows me will tell you that I don’t function well when frozen. So I hibernated. During my hibernation a friend (who is no longer a friend) accuses me of being lazy. Thought I could let it go but nope it’s really bothering me. I am solar powered, I cannot operate when the sun isn’t shining.
So I did more research, yes I conducted a survey to find out how many people think I’m lazy. I didn’t like the results. And as I was beating myself up I realised that all these jokers haven’t a clue what they are talking about. I have my fingers in so many pies I even have to use my toes to keep count of all of them. And because they are so many I couldn’t possibly do a whole song-and-dance about each and every one of them.
You see jobs aren’t like men. They don’t require all that exclusivity, monogamy type of commitment. I can do all my jobs simultaneously. And you know what? I am so bloody good at what I do that the people I work for don’t even feel the need to have me full-time. They would rather share pieces of me than replace me. At the end of the day it’s about results and I’m bringing them unlike that Haram dude that won’t bring back our girls. It’s a little thing called time management.
I realised that people assume you are lazy when you don’t talk about what you do. And more often than not people just wanna grumble about how hard they work and how little they get paid. I don’t have these problems. I am not so discontent with myself that I have to use my work to compensate for what I lack in personality. I love what I do and it’s great, if I told you about it you would think I’m showing off and resent me. Don’t get your insecurities all caught up with my confidence. When your work speaks for itself what else is there to say?
I have two movies coming out, two books, a nationwide pageant to plan, a job as a social media manager, a new magazine that covers Matebeleland, my talent agency, volunteer work and an NGO I’m tryna get registered plus I don’t have a maid. So don’t you dare step up to me volunteering your 2 cents, information that’s clearly worth your whole pay check. Stay in your lane!
