“Sometimes we let life guide us, and other times we take life by the horns. But one thing is for sure: no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, we can always expect the unexpected.”

Brandon Jenner

We don't know what is ahead of us until we are introduced to it and there wouldn't be any choice but to accept and go for it and if you can't, it's okay! But sometimes, we feel like doing them anyways so that we won't have to do them later again. When things like this happen, what I just do to comfort and motivate myself is that since God is always providing, then it's okay for the unexpected to show up and we are done with it.

My laptop had been faulty for some months now and I just kept it aside since the day I encountered an incompetent engineer for the work. I concluded I wasted money on it and for someone like me, I don't have the strength to fight or exchange words with people except I just want to in some situations. I allowed this to slide but I learnt my lesson. If only I had listened to someone when he advised me not to take my laptop to anyone around the school area because they will end up with another problem for me.

This person introduced me to another engineer some weeks ago and I already requested $30 from my elder sister to support me with getting a new and original laptop battery since the current one doesn't last. She sent in the money some days ago and I didn't want to wait any longer as I might end up using the money for something else and I trust my sister. She will request a screenshot of the battery to confirm.

I got prepared yesterday morning to go to where I was directed to. Thank God it wasn't difficult to trace and I met this man who is the owner of the computer accessories store. I greeted him and I explained my problem to him. After looking at my laptop, he said it needs servicing and we talked about the price. He was done with it after over thirty minutes and he kept trying to switch it on but wasn't coming up.

After much trial, he found out that the keyboard has a problem and can't be used or managed unless I get a new one. I asked for the battery too and he calculated both prices for me — the keyboard and battery. I exclaimed hearing the price. I didn't expect to pay this much but since he was ordering both from Lagos State and he didn't want to order one item as it could be a shortage for him, I had no choice.

After much thinking and analyzing how to get the remaining money, I had to pay for both which cost me over $70 (#700 per dollar) including servicing money. I wasn't having enough in my account and it could take longer to do some transactions with my crypto. I immediately called my younger sister to transfer me some money with the hope of sending it back later when I get home. She transferred immediately. May God continue to bless her.

I paid the man. I never budgeted for this and didn't know my keyboard was having a problem because I planned to go fix the laptop and purchase a new battery but I ended up getting a new keyboard which cost a lot. Now, there is a plan ahead of me that I would have to forfeit because I don't plan to touch any of my tokens anytime soon as I already spent a lot over the past few months.

I got home and did what I had to do and returned the money to my sister while I used the remaining to settle my debts. Now, I am free from anything called debt for this year. Thanks to God for the sources of income.

We will always be confronted with needs we never planned for but knowing fully well that God will continue to provide is an assurance that He is with you. Just go for those unexpected circumstances and keep appreciating God for His goodness all the time.

By the time I post this article, I might have gone to collect my laptop as it would be ready for collection today. I will resume back with using my laptop again. I have missed it so much and right now, I feel like I am just starting to type on computers since it's been a while since I have done that. Nevertheless, I am getting my small baby back.

Thanks for your time.

I'm glad you've been able to fix yours. Mine has battery issues too and right now I've even removed the battery totally in hopes to get another which is around $50. I pray God provides soon.

I hope your laptop is working fine and will have no issues that needs money for a long time.

I also received a bad news earlier. One of our major clients did not renew contract with us. This means we have less to no job so I am in limbo now trying to find other online jobs.

Sorry about your laptop. One of the worst thing is to encounter unlicensed engineers. They would make a mess of the whole thing. It can be annoying sha.

You are right Princess. Sometimes it's very hard to face some situations in which we are not ready, but how we handle things makes it possible. So, whatever may come, may we always choose to be positive and never give-up.

We all have many events that happened unexpectedly in our life. Like you, my laptop battery was also out of order. When I visited Mechanic, he also described me about other problems. We should be able to fight with these unexpected events.
