I was at home back one christmas and a friend called. I was broke and bored. Was just killing time in my crib waiting for some darkness before I head out to catch up with some \'boys\' and a pool game...and a hot mug. I do believe I was sad and anxious too. I just had too much going on at the moment and an opportunity to save me from myself was just not presenting itself. At that moment I also tried to avoid the girl I loved so much coz I hate being uncomfortable in my mind and people I love around me...I was so exposed. 

I needed a job.

I was tired of freelancing. Was close to an year doing it. I did cool stuff. Worked at night, slept during the day...and my mom hated that. I love her and paps. My softspot. RIP paps. My mom aint tech, she loved my decision to do tech though. Blessed among many. Supported me in my interests all through...I did lotsa coding. Partial sometimes. I however managed to ship some. College management system, Business Site in html, Fueling automation, Desktop System were among my peak codes.

I hated web development, that\'s why I did just one.

My mom believed in getting a formal employment after school. I did too. I needed a steady salary. I really needed a boss too. Sleeping all day and working at night with some loud music was making me and family not get along and I totally understood that. I needed to taste the life of getting instructions from some guy and implementing just that. I knew this had some effect on creativity but...screw it, let\'s do this.

Do you have a resume? Do you have a ready resume? Do you have a resume in soft or hardcopy? A resume is an integral part of every person out there who needs a job or wishes to switch. It was mine. At this information age, I still find it weird that some companies ask for a resume in hardcopy, yet cyber cafe\' are all over, not forgetting some wonderful pieces of hardware people own these days. Smartphones, phablets, tablets, smart TVs and the like. 

I mailed my resume to some guys. Good friends in the government, who would hook me up...y\'all know how it works right? I was unlucky..sh** wasn\'t working. I was totally in a job search mode. I subscribed to brighter monday...they bored me later. Left that. War came when I turned down a job. A family meeting was convened to talk me to taking a low paying tech job. A guy was giving me 15k with shelter and stuff. I hated the figure. Being honest, I layed out my reasons as to why I was not ready for such a job, and in nairobi. I hated to see my mom angry at me.

Days later, a friend called and told me to send apply online. She sent me the web address too. We applied for it both of us. Was eventually picked and went for an interview. I laughed all through. Happy dude, happy to be in an interview..if this works,Imma eat chicken n fries. I got picked. I learnt cool stuff and had even bought a suit before then. heehh..I needed to look like a working person. It was an internship opportunity. The company dealt alot with Web Development. I loved coding but hated web development. I loved challenges though.

PHP wasn\'t my thing.

PHP was this company\'s best, and still is. I had to learn php. jQuery wasn\'t that bad..I was good in javascript at some levels, so jQuery was manageable but still challenged me. PHP was the bull here. I did take it by the balls, ot horns this time. My boss motivated me. A name similar to my brother\'s reminded me to be a mentor daily. Told me I can be like him or better in 3 months if I studied them. Trust me, I was literally sleeping at 3s, 4s, 1s....all weird times in the night...my habit was hard to break. An intern always showing up late at work. Annoying....yeah..right!!

I pulled it off.

Got retained after internship. I still work there. Keep it locked for more.
