This past week, the media has been awash with stories of the much famed fight against second generation brews. Well, I agree that this is a noble course but I think it should be extended to other scopes in life because “second generationism” has become so rampant in Kenya. Today we tackle campus boys who are so second generation.
Most campus boys have no idea what an investment is. When their counterparts are busy buying land in Limuru these damsels are sitting around fattening their “hips”. Instead of saving they are busy spending their 2 cents on cheap liquor. Just to set the record straight betting on sport pesa is not an investment, it is gambling with your survival. You will be rudely called to reality after betting na rent yote and loosing everything. Don’t think of lying to dad that there is an emergency trip to South Mugirango because I will tell on you just to teach you a lesson.
Second generation campus boys have alarming rates of testosterone in their systems. Self control and good brains have taken a back seat in their lives. Anyway, how do we explain the ballooning number of toddlers being booked for daycare everyday in campus.?I think that the fast and furious bug keeps biting them because they always want sack action done within 2 days after meeting them. They want to know the colour of your bedsheets before your second name!
These citizens are still stuck in the following trends craze at 21! It’s 2015 you wear what works to hide your few ribs and not what Rick Ross is wearing. Time to pick up weird styles from fashion magazines is gone. There is no need to sell your laptop to buy the newest fad in town because for all I know you might just end up looking like an expensive baboon in it. Still on matters fashion, borrowing a yellow blazer and purple trousers then posing like you are harvesting mangoes is surely not fashionable. Real men are somewhere deliberating on business ideas yet you are busy hunting for likes. Do the ladies class some justice and make a U turn!
You are 100% second generation if your ego is still fueled by a crew. Every aspect of your Life basically revolves around some bunch of loosers. From what you eat, what time you eat it, what you wear and even more sickening your choice of girlfriend has to get approval from the crew. Seriously, I still don’t know why some people exist in the 21st century! A man should think on his feet and make concrete decisions. Confidence is admirable so have some. Break the slump and be on your own.
Misplaced priorities is another trait that defines second generation boys. Knowing what is important and what should come first is as easy as one plus one but it looks like some people need rocket science to understand this. You were so good in drama for the four grueling years you spent in high school but when you come to campus you do not want to join a theater crew. Reason being, rehearsals are usually from 7-9 pm and that is the time you want to go play pool, shouting like you just met talking tom and puff some second generation smoke! My neighbour’s class two daughter knows that career comes first and talent should never be taken for granted so young man evaluate yourself.
Some practises are best left to the ages they belong but some annoying individuals just want to carry them forward. Boss we are not balancing ledgers here! Pick up lines stopped being romantic the day I knew how to dress myself for Sunday school so please will you just stop using them on me at this age! How do you find it in yourself to tell me that I am like an onion because I can make you cry! Surely, we all know that I am in no aspect close to an onion and you will still cry if I step on your small toe with a six inch heel so it makes no sense. Drop it and just be real. Colourful language only works for Mcs and they get paid anyway.
Campus boys are notorious pathological liars. They will lie even when there is no need to. Telling me that the reason you dint show up for a date is because Scholastica and the Bible study crew arrived is so lame. Come on don’t you remember that story about how you used to hide in a bucket just to avoid church in high school? You have never set foot in service since God knows when and now out of the blues you are attending Bible study! Please let Sister Nyaatha rest in peace and stop ashaming her. She deserves better. You are an Engineer and you were getting notes from cate a first year gender student. Really?
The chiefs in areas with Universities the ball is in your court weed out these second generation boys before they perish in “ungrownupness.” You are young and energetic so save that poor old man the trouble of chasing after you. Upgrade or else you will find your self stuck in your mother’s house longer than God intended. There you have it the true definition of a second generation comrade!
