So I picked up my stick of candle, I was about to
read for the next paper. Come tomorrow, I will be
sitting for one of the most difficult examination of all.
Matrix and Energy Methods Is certainly one of the
subjects you don’t want to play with as far as Civil
Engineering is concerned.
So I took my candle to the stand and lit it. I
practically tried to make it stand on a tin of milk in
order to prevent it from burning further in case I fell
So i placed it on the tin, but the poor thing refused to
stand and give me the brightness I need to read my
All my efforts to quickly make it stand failed, but the
candle kept burning anyways.
The more I tried to make it stand, the more it burns
and the more time I lost.
For a couple of minutes, I kept doing this and then it

lay the foundation for that happy relationship, that
prosperous business, and the happy home you
want to build.
You need to sweat it out. Make the right decision
today, make the candle stand in your life, family life,
business life by making a better platform for this to
Lay a solid foundation so that when the good things
come, they’ll have a place to place their feet and
stand the test of time.
I hope you found this long but interesting?
Have a pleasant night rest my people.
