On the Prowl

Well was just chit chatting with my workmates and one of them goes like:

So if you were to go back through your career and school life what would you change? Like what is it that you would want to do different career-wise, or do you like what you are doing right now?

Shiish! that’s a difficult question I must say. Seeing as we all go to school so that  we can have career that will enable us to live a comfortable life as well as contribute to the economic development of the country in an effective way well am being positive here lol

Anyhow this took me down memory lane, from when I was say 5yrs old to 13yrs that’s practically Primary school, when your parents ask you “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Our answers always started like that, “When I grow up I want to be like ……” and we knew exactly what we wanted and you would confidently say it. I mean no hesitation, it was for direct answers. And for that reason I admire kids. I mean if to be a doctor requires me to be good in maths and science, I would do whatever it takes to get a 90% or an A in those subjects, we used to compete, cry because we have failed i.e gotten a B in a subject. I mean if you fail, it’s like someone has crushed your dream.

When you say I want to be like daddy, it’s because you admire them, what they do and see that they are successful in their endeavours – I mean he is able to buy for you your best bike, the best clothes, feed you – as a result you want to be that what he is.

I mean at that age, our career decisions are influenced by those grown-ups around us like teachers, especially teachers or your parents friends, or people you see on T.V. Like I wanted to be a doctor (because of my mum) I would play doctor – patient with my dolls like the way I used to see when I visit moms work place, I also wanted to be an air hostess clearly seen from my posses on photos. I used to think they are the most beautiful models, until I saw air hostesses for British airways, my hopes were shuttered, they were old and not very appealing. #nopunintended

There is the stage for when I was 14yrs to 17yrs this was my high school phase. It’s at this point, where your teachers and parents are the dictators of what you should do, your career direction. Because I remember when I was in form 2, I had to drop some subjects and retain some and the people who contributed here, were mainly my teachers. They tell you what you are good in and what you are poor in based on your performance.

Given a chance to go back to high school, I would drop Physics and pick Social Ethics, that would’ve been a straight A #justsaying

Anyway then comes form 4 where you have to choose what it is you want to do? Engineering, Medicine, Computer Science, Bcom — I mean something! They should’ve said it’s your parents choice at that point, because basically they are the ones who are called to come help (tell you) what to fill in those forms.

Then reality checks in, when you are done. And this is where most people get confused, yeah you applied to get into the University but sometimes they give you weird degrees like Wood Science, Anatomy …. hehe It’s when you are left in a situation where you are torn in between everything.

Personally, I was unaware of what I want. I was even thinking Bio Chemistry because I loved Biology and Chemistry Thank God for not letting me go there that would’ve been disastrous. Anyway, I went for what was available and was thought of being a good school.

Sometimes you just don’t know what you want, and you need the brilliant people around you to push you a bit, sort of shake you up to help you figure what it is that you want.

And that was my dad, he saw an advert for Strathmore University having intakes for Diploma in Business Information Technology (DBIT) and he says “go do the interview and study as you figure what you want to do”.

That was the shaking I needed to figure out what I wanted in life, because I was so clueless or rather confused. That to me was the most critical time of my life, you can either make your life or break it. And when I finished that I went into Bachelor of Business Information Technology (BBIT), and right now as much as my parents could be a pain sometimes, I thank them for pushing me into it, sometimes as much as we complain, that’s their role, to make sure we get the best education and direct us in paths they think would be suitable for us especially when we are young, fragile and vulnerable.

Anyway, campus life was so much fun , exhausting and stressful — all those cats, projects, assignments, life issues, friends and trying to mix them up in a balanced way.

I would say Campus was like preparing a meal, i mean you had to mix the ingredients well to be able to come up with something tasty and edible (not in that sense though) at the end of it, that is a good education, good personality, good reputation, good record, good friends and so on.

Then comes the time you finish campus and now you have to look for a place to build up your career, where you are going to at least use the knowledge gained throughout your 8.4.4 , to be given roles and responsibilities, be PAID at the end of the month.

But there’s a cycle you go through. You need to Identify where it is you want to work, as a what (position), the requirements for the position, the salary you need to be paid. And so many other things, this are just but a few.

Personally, I figured I want to do project management and system analysis and design but before realizing that I went through a series of other things such as Networking, Programming #notforme but that’s not all there is to it, i mean you need to up your skill, read more, do more projects or better yet start your own thing.

Makes you have the feeling of not wanting to grow up, life is hard especially career-wise, to get that job that you really want,that makes you grow, that pays you well. Makes me want to be 5 years once again.

Or maybe not, since that would mean I would have to grow up all over again and go through 8.4.4. wololo that would be a nightmare!

So nowadays we have been reduced to just having a job that can help pay your bills that’s all. I mean, you don’t do what it is you were employed to do. Or that which you studied and went through sleepless nights to pass exams and get more knowledge. Or worse yet, you do what you would want to do but you don’t develop yourself intellectually because everything is so routine.

You know what I mean, I would want a job where I am given responsibilities and left accountable, where my brain is challenged, where I’m stressed not because I’ve come to work late but because I haven’t met my deadlines, where I’m leaving the office late not because I was tweeting or blogging but because I’m trying to work things out, where I get rewarded for the hard work I put in. In general , I want to develop and mature career wise and feel it, since at the moment I don’t.

As a result am still on the prowl, that’s what I want, it’s what I wish for and pray for thinking of which why do we just remember to pray when we have problems…gosh! Sorry God :)

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves”~ Thomas Edison

So out of curiosity, are there guys who have such discussions …. lol that’s just lack of ambition. Found it hilarious. If I foud my kids in future talking like this, I for sure would force him/her to become a doctor /engineer, the full dictation.

Generation Twitter – Facebook Facingout

Okay this weather is just so confusing. I thought I saw the sun yesterday, and today am freezing like hell #paradox ….lol but I always freeze now that the sun rays never reach my desk, am on that disadvantaged side…next to the window but far from the rays.

Anyway, this post was to explain how Twitter has now become a lifestyle hence the generation twitter, I mean even Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook Founder) feels threatened ooh which he should…hehe at the rate twitter is growing, Facebook might just be  Facedout. Seeing as am having a testimonial on my twitter usage already.

I can’t remember how I heard of it really twitter that is, oh yeah, I read it on CNN about this US president who used to tweet i.e write short updates on the different aspects of his life, i.e. his location, the weather, mood and they were found years later and were said to be tweets. And that twitter has taken that idea.

So I was like, “It sounds cool”. And I go to twitter.com and faithfully sign up with a username and password. And when the first page opened I was so clueless of what i’m supposed to do. So the excitement automatically faded seeing as am techno savvy or so I think..lol So being a normal human being, I forget that I had joined and go ahead with life, by that time facebook was the in-thing haha am talking about it like it was 1900BC.

Like months or a year later people start talking about twitter, and I remember I had an account but I can’t remember the Username and Password….and this is what we would call the:

“The Twitter Initiation Phase”

I can bet I’m not the only one whose done that, like three quarters of the guys I know on twitter have gone through the same.

So anyway, there’s no manual to tell you what to do next, so I started with my profile, then I figure, there’s no activity going on, I don’t know who to follow, who to follow me… so I was just putting updates like “Twitter is so complicated”, “I’m not getting how this is done”…lol and slowly some tweoples started following me, and I got the whole drift not really though.

I mean I still thought FaceBook was the thing, clearly I hadn’t tapped twitters full potential. And so I would visit it once in a while, although there was nothing appealing or driving me towards it.

Then comes the next one:

“The Twitter Familiarization Phase”

This where I started realizing, that I can actually use twitter as a communication channel, you know where I can follow a couple of friends and non-friends who have information that’s of relevance to me and they would follow me back or vice versa.

It’s where I realized the value of the two most important symbols “@” and “#” whereby @ is the reference to a follower such as @Someone , then # is for trending topics, or for emphasis on something. Once you get this two, I think you are set. You’ll enjoy for some time.

Then comes the:

“The Twexpert Phase”

This is where you totally enjoy Twitter, where the you get the drift, know your way around. Now you’ve become a veteran, You can Retweet(RT), you can quote, reply, Direct Message (DM), put links and so on.

It’s where you have been able to get he right tweets on your timeline by identifying the interesting people with interesting and beneficial tweets.

I think once you know how to use twitter to your benefit you can actually get a lot out of it besides te social part. I mean it has people of different professions, people who know different things and update you. It’s a mini Wiki…lol, just that a status is limited to 140letters, which is a good thing, hence the name “tweet”. #ilike

I could be having a lousy day and some tweetmates actually make my day.  They are virtual friends but feels like they are actual friends… which they now are, I mean the best thing is to associate a tweet with a face, for the tweetmates i have met #cheers #tweeton.

For those who take twitter to personally, woe to you, it can make you or break you, just like any other social network. It also the best social network for those people who like anonymity i.e. being anonymous , you can keep your guard low like tweet away without people judging you or knowing who’s actually behind that tweet.

There are many applications that one can use to access twitter other than twitter.com, and until I realized that I used to find some of the twitter functionalities quite a burden like retweeting and so on, so at the moment am on ~ Sessmic Web App, and on mobile dabr.co.uk works well.. All this thanks to my Tweet Techie ~ @mwendariungu just giving credit where its due am nice like that lol

The only thing I hate about twitter, is when you are going to access it, and it brings you a #FailWhale Totally sucks, especially when you are burning to say something of importance yeah right.

Otherwise i’m a content twerson, I like twitter though am not yet an addict #ithink besides the hashtags even on text messages on phone, hope I dont hash tag when sms’ing my dad..ha! He would be so clueless #fail

Looks like am marketing twitter but in the actual sense not, I just like the whole idea. If you’re not in it, you are missing out.

Ok, not me literally, but that’s the essence of TWITTER – Follow me, I follow you and we interact {that’s me making up my own things…lol}

Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number

I’m an avid supporter of the statement “Age ain’t nothing but a number”, I mean, I should even be told to write an essay on that, but seeing as me and essay’s have a very complicated relationship. Up until now, if I’m told to write an essay I would just freeze, the whole arrangement and looking for words to best fit or make you look brilliant and knowledgeable. Maybe that’s the reason I’m now into blogging, I can write in any order. I like that.

Okay, loosing trail of my topic at hand.

This is what I think of age, I respect my elders, that’s a rule my parents have brought me up with. So that’s not what I will really blubber about. I just have this belief that if you are in a certain age-group, you shouldn’t feel so old for others. So on my age groups:

18-35, 36-55, 55 and above.

And those two age-groups in particular. I shall not go beyond 55 because that will be pushing it. I mean, if over 55, is some bow downs and serious respect you know what i mean, age of retirement, as a result it means that you have experienced almost everything and now you need to just sit, relax and enjoy life…and that’s why my imaginative mind can’t run beyond 55 *read fifte fae…lol*, am still on the hustling stage.

“The process of maturing is an art to be learned, an effort to be sustained. By the age of fifty (50) you have made yourself what you are, if it is good, it is better than your youth.” ~ Marya Mannes

Anyway back to my two groups, So here goes the 1st,

18-35

This is that ‘young age’ that you should take full advantage (with all the craze) of, it sort of spells out how the next age group will be. There’s a 17 years difference between the two digits. But in my tender age (lol) I have come to realize that the people in this group think alike, they go through similar experiences just that some can be easier than others while others can be more difficult, but when put on a table they can relate quite well for that matter.

Some tend to feel older by virtue of the years they  have lived since birth, but when it comes to experience you can find that the younger soul has more of it. As much as of course the older one won’t agree.

I say this because when I look at my friends they are all of different ages younger and older, and what interests me and I believe you as well is the level of maturity, It’s the:

  1. The content this person has,
  2. What they talk about,
  3. What they think,
  4. What they do,
  5. How they present themselves to others given certain situations,
  6. How they dress and carry themselves around (behavior),
  7. How  they react in given a circumstance.

This few things don’t just come about because you are 28yrs, it’s runs across the board, at all ages, one can be 18 and very mature as well as someone can be 35 and very immature. I stumbled upon a few quotes about maturity and I thought I should share.

“Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had, and what you’ve learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.” ~ Unknown

“’Age’ is the acceptance of a term of years. But maturity is the glory of years.” ~ Martha Graham

“To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.”

And it’s for that reason, age difference in relationships is never my number one elimination method. You just never know. Though extending to the next age group is more like suicide because different views, generations – unless you want to be treated like the full baby…hehe i doubt

And onto my next,

36-55

“Thirty-five is when you finally get your head together and your body starts falling apart” ~ Caryn Leschen …. Lol, Just Kidding.

Let me tell you, this are the most interesting people to hang out with, because they take care of you. And joke about everything they have been through in life. They take “It’s never that serious ” to another level. They advice you on the paths that you shouldn’t or should follow based on their experiences and those of other people they have heard of.

But anytime I make friends who are in this age-group, I am proud to be associated with them. They are keepers, they are the kind who say:

and wait you hear it, you’ll laugh to rib aches (ha just kidding).

What I would say to the age group is,

“Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many” ~ Author Unknown

Now you want to know why women don’t like saying their age? I still don’t know.

But being a woman, I could say sometimes it’s more fun when someone doesn’t judge you by your age, but instead by who you are as an individual minus the age if that makes sense. You could be old (which is a privilege by the way, Thank God for living long) but very young at heart.

All I can say is that,

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair” ~ Douglas MacArthur

TGIF #FreeSpirit *wink*

Thank God Its Friday By all means FURAHIDAY :)

I had really waited for today, as in I was even fast forwarding time and days, not that I have something really exciting to do at hand. But the weekends are the most attractive days of the week. I mean, there’s no pressure, it’s more like my time #FreeSpirit

What I’m excited about

Oh yeah, my one and only baby sister is coming for mid-term maybe that’s why I have been looking forward to the end of the week. She’s 15 but she’s so mature you wouldn’t think. She brings life in the house, a least for the weekend attention from my folks will be shifted from me to her #woohoo and I have a movie mate, and an update of all the new songs. She’s in boarding school, but she comes with all this new stories like she’s the one who’s been up and about.

How I feel

So today am feeling weird, compressed, confused-ish , in between hapy and not soo happy but happy….lol

What I wish for

Hmmm I’m seriously  looking for a new job, so any one know of a Project Manager Vacancy or System Analyst *holler at a girl* . So I wish I can just get an offer somewhere, from my blog to God’s ears :)

Just landed on this quote : “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” ~ Walt Disney . Hee,  It’s about time you know.

I discovered

That TMALL, the Tuskys on Langata Road has yummy food for take away, and am thinking i’ll be walking there for lunch. Seeing as i’ll be killing two boirds with one stone ” Eating and Excercising “

Highlights of the week

It was my mainest girlfriends birthday on 15th and I wanted her HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY, and mission was accomplished. Plus ended up eating so much and laughing more.

I thank God for this cheap thrills in life, like enjoying peoples company, laughing to rib aches and feeling loved.

A certain someone gave me so much inspiration on my blog, I couldn’t belief I actually make some impact on someones life, let alone get someone who doesn’t know me read what I write. I’m sooo honoured cc: @DanGithua Thanks.

I’m listening to

Some remixes By Dj Blaze done in 2009, which I accidentaly landed on, on my hard drive #TooFresh, they are more like House and Trance. The likes of David Guetta, Black Eyed Peas, Edward Maya, Desireless, Alanis Morissette…

My Prayer


What I want

The best things in life I bet i’m not asking for too much *giggles* … you know the kind of : no pressure, no stress – Free spirit…yeah!

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” ~ Hellen Keller

My new favorite

This song has got me too… woi! me and my tendencies to replay a song a million times well that’s just me. and in general her songs are just the ISH, they all make sense and super sweet to the ear. Like her lifestyle too, she aint splattered all over the media for all the wrong reasons. #TooFresh!

Anyhow, ever had those people in your life, that even if they do stuff that hurts you or totally pisses you off, when they are in trouble or need you, you’ve always got them? or say you’ll just quickly forgive? #justasking

Negative Vybe = Negative Energy

I had a lovely weeked, you know the kind where you are here, there and everywhere. So in the midst of my all my escapades of the weekend, I met a couple of old friends and you know it’s all excitement as I haven’t seen them in a long while. So chatting up and laughing about stuff. I enjoy meeting people, i mean am a chatter box when opportunity presents itself.

Though one thing I have never done is build negative energy on someone, I always try my best to look at the good side of things, you know things could be thick and difficult, and we can talk about that, but those things can have something positive that can make you feel better.

Anyway for the first time ever, I felt like am a dart board, and my heart was the one being aimed at. Like the heart piercing kind.

You know when people talking about something that affects you directly, and as much as it sounds true or not you don’t have a say, like you just shuush and listen as they toss your “life story” like a ball, everyone has an opinion and they don’t spare any bit. I mean you can’t contribute because it sounds partly like advice while at the same time it’s “I don’t know what it is” #confused.

So let’s just say as the conversation continued ok maybe not conversation it’s me just being told things as I wasn’t really responding, It reached a point and i’m thinking ok, stop! it’s abit to much. You know some things can be put forward as jokes and at first it feels like a joke and you laugh with them, but when it becomes an extended joke then it reaches a point it hurts. And being me,  I always try to put a brave face and laugh even when am the target. You the kind where :

Yah that was me, I was laughing and smiling and acting like what they were saying was haha funny but in the inside, I was just like I want to get the hell outta here … that feeling where the slightest opportunity to flee would be highly appreciated. Regardless of wether you will remain as the topic of discussion.

And by time I was  leaving, all I was feeling was:

At one time or another, this had to happen. It’s good to experience some things so that you can know how it feels and how you can tackle them. Because after that I just wanted to go home and sleep … I love sleep, because when you sleep everything just goes away. I had wanted to go party but I opted out, my partner in crime wasn’t amused…hehe

Every experience for me is always a learning experience, I think a lot I must say, about different things. And when I thought about this particular instance, and all i could come up with was this,

People see, hear and talk. People will tell you things you don’t want to hear, things you probably know but don’t want to get the reality of them. They will say the truth from what they have observed..oh and the truth hurts.. sometimes what they say could be out of their experiences and they are just letting you know so that you don’t make a mistake.

You just need to know how to handle all that information in a way that’s beneficial to you. I mean with all my intelligence, I should be able to “sieve chuff from good grain” — I got it….ha!

I also learnt another thing, people are very delicate creatures… I can look like am the strongest, but you don’t know what’s going inside me #emotions. And concealing them is our life’s job description.

So when dealing with something that will probably touch on someones feeling, be gentle, you can joke but don’t extend it. and when someone says stop, you stop unless your intention is to hurt them #amjustsaying. Plus drop in a line of encouragement.

“Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other arguement is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement” – George Adams

Oh well end of the story, those my friends never encouraged me after all the negative vybe, but one other person did, thanx babe and I am grateful *wink* . Glad I have someone  I can call, rant and rave from a girls perspective. I love you @Wanjanmajid :) and Happy Pre Birthday (15th June), Thank God for bringing you into this world, clearly he saw I needed you..hehe

Fashion Statement

I just wonder the struggle we go through on a normal day to make a fashion statement. I have been trying to look at people this whole week in the morning as I walk to work, and in the evening as am going back home, plus on the weekend.

I mean people can really push it to be fashionable…hehe sometimes I just want to laugh loudly but most of the time it’s early morning and am walking alone, or I feel like turning and seeing what that person has worn a 2nd time.

Make Up : – Very tricky, you’ve got to do it well and avoid too much of it.

Foundation: - some girl has make up that has covered up her whole face, and you look and feel like your looking at some ghost *no pun intended*, i mean, little make up looks good

Eye Pencil, Mascara, Contact Lenses : – but when you shave your eyebrows and draw a line instead…hehe it looks surprisingly hilarious on you. Or if you put so much mascara and contacts that make me feel like am looking at a scary cat  in pitch darkness…

Funny Clothing Trends :- It’s those style i’m seeing trending, what every other peron is wearing or has one or two of them in their closet, plus just those random things that look wrong, or look too good.

Stocking / Panty hose: - there’s a way you wear them and they look very good and there’s a way you wear them and you look like *for lack of better words* a slut.  You get what am saying. I havn’t yet figured how to dress mine, so they are still folded somewhere, if there’s one person who has mastered the art of wearing them and looking fabulous, it’s @putty_catt but that’s her style and one persons style doesn’t necessarily look good on another person so I can’t copy..hehe

Short Skirts :- Why one would wear a short skirt and keep pulling it down still doesn’t make sense? i mean, you wore it to flaunt your legs so just flaunt them. Or a very tight skirt that keeps being pulled up by the hips..hehe fitting would look quite good i thought. #justsaying

Sagged Jeans – Yuck! I think it just looks bad. That’s all I can say. Is there a thing with guys showing half their butt when bending? I mean it just looks not nice.

Well Fitting Jeans :- always look good, it’s one of those things that never let you down. provided you dress your body size well.

Coloured clothes mixture : – Now this looks hot, i have a thing for this multi colors on people, provided the colors go, not that you wear some fishy colors, they have to somehow blend. There’s a way you can do it and look like a clown. Kanye is the father of this style…or so i think, I just find him mixing all the weird colors and looking good. like Green and Purple, oh yah he’s girlfriend Amber too..looks like some maad influence going on.

Skinny Jeans :- Whoever invented them, THANK YOU. just dress them well and your good to go. Thing is make sure it just suits your body shape #ThatsAll, it doesnt matter, you can wear with flats or with heels…makes dressing so easy.

High Waist Bottoms :- I think this strictly looks good in people that don’t have bulging sides. otherwise it spoils it. Also it’s fit for ladies ONLY. I mean it just looks Yuck on men. Ever seen a guy with the high waist trousers, it just looks utterly disgusting and wrong #mythought

Tights and Long tops:- seen quite hilarious ones, but seen others that just look hoot, and seems am following the trend once in a while, makes you feel free #For all intents and purposes … hehe

Shoes:- Flats are the best shoes ever invented, atleast I can walk a distance and not feel like I have walked double.Comfortable shoes are the very inportant bit.

Now this is the part I laugh my self off in the morning as I walk to the stage. Partly because a lady has worn high heels that she can barely walk in. I mean you see like she’s off balance, like the next thing she’s gonna trip or something. But some people can actually hack the 6 inch and walk a mile. #amproud because i can’t maybe for a minute.

Flaked tip of the heel :- now that looks ugly! it looks like an umbrella as my friends would put it. I mean , why dress up so well then wear flaked heels, you would rather even wear slippers ok am pushing it

Plastic perforated shoes :- this is my best part, people hate (dudes) on those shoes, but they are my favorite…wash and wear, they don’t get worn off because they’ve been rained on, they are not a task to clean and lastly but not least they are easy to dress :)

I just love this shoes, very economical...the all kind of weather..hehe

Shades :- This is another trend am loving, but i mean there’s a time to wear shades. Lesson101 – When the sun is up and shining and that’s why they would be called shades. The new thing, Shutter shades, woohoo I own a pair, thanks to my twin. I can’t walk with them to town on a random normal day , it just makes you look like a not so serious person fashionista joker, but it’s perfect fit for ocassions like  a party, baberque.

This ones can be worn during the day, I really want :-/ where can i get?, i don’t mind them as a gift …hehe

Hair :- As much as India Arie says, you are not your hair, I think you really are. I mean it’s waht someone sees before they see who you really are. So taking care of your hair is important, it’s one of those things where it can spoil your whole look. Good clothes, bad hair, I will notice the bad hair first and probably I won’t even see the good clothes #YouGet

So am digging this mini-afro look, and if theres someone whose bagged the look, it’s @Sheila97 , it goes with her face, it’s clean and well kept #TooFresh. The hair is something like the pic below, but I like sheila’s better because its somewhat shorter.

ps: This is a random picture from google

Mohawk:- Now this is a trend am not understanding, because the ones i have seen are SCARY. like a #MassiveFail . Where some puts weaves in the middle I just don’t get to make the mohawk more evident. but not noticing that it looks misplaced. I mean, their hair stylist should intervene #justsaying

ps: No pun intended but ai!!

Weaves: - There are nice weaves I  must say, seen a couple of good ones on my friends, it makes them look really nice. But catch me dead having one, unless things are thick-est. My problem now is the ones that look hideous, like you are habouring some pests inside or they make you look like some alien on planet earth. For example: Blonde on Black looks very hideous.

ps: Random pic from google

Normal hair styled well :- Could be natural or permed. Don’t know how at this day and age someone survives with normal because it’s hard to maintain, unless you are on an afro or something, but some people manage.

Braided Hair:- Looks really nice with all the styles people have, though others go over-board. While others overstay with them until you have braided hair but it looks like you shaved it and combed it, because of the strands of hair popping out.

Nails :- hehe I alwas go for well trimmed nails that are clen, neat and easy to handle. Well it could be because I love eating, so the shorter the nails, the better.

Okay I have seen some long nails that look like claws… that’s freaky, it always gets me wondering how they do stuff like wash, greet people, eat (assuming you are not doing the fork and knife)

Trousers and socks :- Men should wear trousers that fit well you know what i mean and socks that don’t scream “Look at me!”

Don’t touch my ankle and white socks :- were only meant for Michael Jackson during he’s performances #Only otherwise well cut trousers fitting your height, width and breadth perfectly should be the ones worn.

Bras and panties :- Fitting bra’s, that’s just it. Hidden Panty.

Hate it when a girl bends and you can see a red pant peeping and at that time she’s in a black trouser. It just looks bad. Or one who bends and the butt crack is on your face #YUCK!

I have no qualms with bras, i hate them but have to wear them, but oh yeah, don’t wear a transparent blouse with a white bra because we see everything. Black bra always do the trick. but colored looks hot :)

Okay that’s enough already.

The subordinate

Well  a subordinate would be someone belonging to a lower or inferior class or rank; You know the kind of job you would go like, “you do that for a living ?” *surprised face with a hint of pity* Yah, that’s what I am talking about. Like a janitor, garbage collector, house-help, cobbler, watchman, tea-girl … these are just but a few of them. But I know you get what I mean.

Did you know, that the world would be such an unbearable place if these people we call subordinate workers were not in existence i.e.  if we all had white-collar jobs in management positions. There would be no one to clean the office, cook tea for break, clean the toilets … it would be a crazy world, i mean since every one is too proud to do any of the dirty work.

How would it be if you went home, after a tired day of being busy in the office spinning on your chair #JustKidding and start cleaning the house, cooking dinner, washing clothes you know the whole baggage, but thanks to house helps, you come home to a clean dustless house, cooked food, washed, dried and ironed clothes. I mean the least you can do is at least be grateful for the existence of such work and people who can do them.

If say, there were no watchmen and at night you have to sleep with one eye open so as to spot any hint of insecurity on your very large compound, if every night you have to walk around to make sure all doors are closed, the dogs are fed and let out to bark away in the night. But thanks to watchmen, all you have to do is employ them and sleep at the comfort of your bed the whole night and very confident and trusting that the compound is top-notch secure.

If in the office, the tea girl was non existant … oh well thank God for coffee makers and disposable tumblers, but not all offices have such luxuries as a result I treasure the tea lady, because if it were not for her no one will be quite offering to go make tea for us. Talk of pride.

And this happened to me today, I wore a shoe I hadn’t worn in ages, and after walking a distance I realize probably the reason I never wore it is because it had something at the back that used to hurt me … Thank God for cobblers, I got him to mend for me the shoe and now am very comfortable in them. I mean what if there was no cobblers I would either have to struggle through out the day, or randomly buy another pair of shoes.

All am trying to say is that the subordinate staff/worker is sort of like a hem in a cloth, they are important #Very, they make things easier,  and they do those things that you feel sweet to do without complaining. As a result the least you can do is respect them and if you can tip them, please do, if not you can make them smile for they also deserve it, by saying thanks for the service they have offered you.

Read this quote somewhere, and I think it’s quite true:

“I admire men of character, and I judge character not by how men deal with their superiors, but mostly how they deal with their subordinates, and that, to me, is where you find out what the character of a man is”

Have a Wonderful Wednesday *Smiles*

How stuff works!

Ever visited the site howstuffworks.com? , well it’s a very interesting one, because it explains to you exactly how everything works, i mean  literally anything that is manmade like appliances, medicine, the human anatomy, the animals.

We are all coupled ok i’ve pushed it not all of us with skills that helps us develop equipments to deal with nearly all aspects of our lives, you know, am talking from something like shoes to protect our feet, to cars to prevent us from getting tired, or to take us from point A to point B.or even a plane to be able to cross the seas and oceans that separate the different continents a place you’d take 5 days to travel , you take 5hrs.

I’ve heard of so many developments, the Internet, vaccinations, appliances, softwares…all that kind of stuff that will make you’re life easier in ways you never thought. Am sure the guys in 1900 Century never knew that there would be automobiles that would make 10km look like 100m or there would be mobile phones and they won’t have to use smoke signals.

Anyway, even with all the developments am yet to hear, anyone who has come up with equipment that will deal with the matters of the heart. you know like:

  • Protect your relationships for you
  • Help you say all the right words at all times to avoid arguments
  • Help you detect when you’re friend or partner is not in a good mood so that you can keep off
  • Tell you when you are insisting and the other party is thinking ok, I’ve had enough
  • Protect you from getting hurt #heartbroken
  • To warn you of bad guys who will just take advantage of you
  • To tell you it’s at this point you leave this person because of this and this instead of making mistakes
  • Lets you know if this is the right person for you without going through the whole dating process #quite some rigorous process … hehe
  • To tell you what the other person is thinking, so that you can know exactly what they think of you or what they expect of you.
  • To know you’re limits i.e what you should or should not do in order to make the other person happy

Any how, I think God was so brilliant…and that’s just to show that there are some things that no matter how ingenious one is, there is that one thing we as humans just can’t tend to decipher and come up with manuals, and that’s the matters of the  heart.

Everyone is different in their own ways. A relationship is characterized by two different people, with their inherent differences. As a result, some work , some don’t, some are successful and others a massive fail.

And to the most confusing quote, you know the part where you say #ihatequotes because as much as you try to understand, it hits the roof. i.e does your heart mean your feelings, or what you think, because it can be quite hard to differentiate the heart and the mind sometimes.

“The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.”

Then I understand this other one, because I can say I experience it.

“Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in heart.”
