Greetings from a City Far ,Far Away....

Hello Blogsville!!!! Happy new Month!!! How have Y`all Been & how was your weekend???. Jeez..I haven`t seen my page after my birthday, which is So So So not kool but i have been showing up randomly and commenting on posts so i guess apart from  not updating my blog i really didn`t Go M.I.A . Its been a while and i`m just gonna do a quick summary of events that occurred from the 16th of August till date. Okay so on my birthday i decided to stay indoors and be mindful of what kind of gifts i open upon receiveing coz i have not been a very good boy when it comes to giving my friends presents. 

This year alone i have giving soldier ants "real soldier ants",boxing glove on a spring,XXXXXXXXL briefs  & a smoke bomb as birthday presents. Its kinda like a who has the badest prank thing my teammates started years ago, i can confidently say i`m the king coz i know where to get the weirdest gifts *evil grin*. Later that evening my teammates had a surprise party for me and boy did their appointed spokes person have a hard time getting me to open the gates talkless having him  come upstairs and wait whiles i got ready coz the stories he was telling me just to  make  me come with him wasn`t adding up but i had to go so i don`t ruin whatever plan he/they had whether good or bad. Can`t blame me,Its just that most of my most of my teammates are victims of my prank/mischief so i did not want to go coz only GOD knows what they had in mind for the king of mischief. :P

I decided to man up,face my fears and just go with him afterall, whats the worst that could happen ???? ..In 15mins we were at another mates house to pick him up before heading to our final destination. We drove in,he opened the front door and asked us to sit for a bit and that he would be back. we sat for about 20mins and still no sign of this dude,at that point all sort of thoughts crossed my mind coz i felt like it was judgement day and my mighty reign of terror was going to come to an end. He was taking forever and so we decided to go see whats going on in there,"little did i know the whole team was in his room" as we got closer i called out but no responce. I reached for the door knob, opened it and when i saw the room population and the smiles the had on their faces i knew it was gonna be a crazy night to remember. Everybody came out, sang,wished me well and made sure i had a good bath with all sort of drinks. Although i wasn`t too comfortable coz i don`t drink alcohol and most of the drinks being poured on me was alcoholic. That was their way of getting back at me but mine still top,my birthday party was the last team celebration before Pre-season so we partied HARD.

4 days later we assembled at a Bus Terminal coz it was time for pre-season/training tour,7hrs later we arrived at our hotel & retired to bed. The next day we got to meet our new coach,the old coach had an offer he couldn`t refuse and sadly left without a word. Guess he just wouldn`t be able to stand the emotions,especially  from some of us that he coached through the ranks so it was best he left the way he did. The new coach did a lil introduction  and when he finished,we went out to see our new home city as tradition demands before we begin drills the following day. The pre-seaon went well,just that after 2weeks the new coach which we were already finding difficulties adapting  to his Military style was on my case and we  had a lil training ground incident which resulted into me staying back after regular session to do 3hrs extra hours of shuttle runs supervised by none other but himself. 

I was so pissed coz i felt he is trying to act all bossy,offcourse he is the head coach and demands respect but i honestly did not do anything crazy,all i did was pass a funny comment which was not even about him. He was pissed coz i made my mates laugh during a serious session and to him that should not happen when he is in charge. i mean how??? the drills are crazy and at least we gotta have something to laugh about but i guess this "mean machine sent back through time to make our lives living hell" did not understand it that way. His assistant called me and told me that i have to realize that power has changed hands and alot of things are going to change but he is going to try talk to the head coach so he loosens up abit coz his action made my team mates hate him the more coz of his approach to everything. I remember tweeting about how i felt like going up to his room on the  7th floor and just throw him out the window for making me shuttle run that long but i guess after a talk with 9ja-great i just let the rage and anger go away.
Anyway we still not friends and can never be so all we do is try fit into his military style which is doing more harm than good,its sure gonna be a looong season & i`m gonna get through it with what P.E.Tprojects told me when i spoke about the coach trying to kill my shine,she said i should see him as an obstacle that have to be scaled. i`m gonna work twice as hard so help me GOD.

Gotta run,YO`MAMA jokes is happening live in the lobby..:) & erm In other news i recieved 2 awards :D ,will make post about them very soon till my next post be good and stay blessed. DiDi from a City far,far away. :)

  3. Blessings my Darling.

    Lesson one, in life ther will always be changes, it is the one constant and while you cannot predict those changes you can either adapt and be like a willow tree and go with the flow or allow others to dictate how those changes impact and transform you due to your resistance. In terms of your new coach, take it easy eh, and respect his approach even if its not what you are use to. It is not fair that you all are holding him to the standards of the old coach. Think of your long term goals, what you are there for, the purpose and what you want to accomplish and you will see his presence with new eyes. Everyone is different, how they see the world and function in it will also be different.

    Look at it this way, if you were in an exchange program and you enter into this new team replacing (temporarily) the person who was popular, well liked, outgoing etc, and everybody expects you to behave and function in the same way as the other exchange student, would that be fair? How will you integrate and merge yourself and find camaraderie if no one gives you the opportunity to show what you have to offer and what gift you bring to the team if they are all resistantly wants and expects you to function exactly as the person you replaced?

    My point, give respect, understand that while you cannot change or control who your coach is, you have absolute control over your own behaviours, actions, words and reactions. Give this new coach a fair shake, follow his lead and see where it takes you, see how this new discipline improves, shapes and influences your ability.

    You can be an example for your team and don’t allow yourself to be labelled a bad influence, disruptions by virtue of your behaviour i.e. clowning around during his coaching sessions. Relax, get to know this new coach, you may find some value in him and what he has to offer/bring to the table.

    And stay blessed my Darling.

  4. I'm glad u've decided to face your goals and ignore the human challenge. As an extension, ur blog remains an avenue to let out the steam, No coach can stand in the way... Except you allow him offcourse.
