(I have an odd sense of humour. Please don’t read too seriously into this blog. I am not being racist or emo or whatever. Just tongue in cheek!)
And I have to share… because I want to:
So in South Africa, the black folk are known for their community. Community comes natural. They’re good at welcoming others. It goes with the whole philosophy:
“umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu” – a person is a person because of others. I love that!
But the funniest thing is black folk on whatsapp groups. It’s like “double community” oh my word!
I joined a study group for one of my UNISA subjects; I had to leave it… there was just way too much chatting going on… lol.
Like an overdose of community! Yesterday I started this local group in my town for those interested in playing soccer. I leave my phone for awhile and then come back to a 45 unread messages in that group. Oh my!
so that’s my one random observation!
then I must laugh at the “bizarre” loneliness one feels… when you’re the only one “left” in a whatsapp group. Recently, family and friends made little groups for recent events. (easier chatting in one group.)
But once the events have expired.. people leave the group. I keep forgetting to delete the groups. I then stumble upon them by accident and discover I’m the only one left. haha!
I feel a surge of “loneliness” over me… haha! Bizarre!
I know… #odd thoughts over and out…
