Random Thoughts

If only you could just speak or write what’s on your mind without thinking what the recipient would think. Oh Lord, wouldn’t some things just be much easier.

Beauty may get the attention, but personality will capture the heart. Speaking of which do you know your personality? Post for another day :)

The Red Light


Now, I have the perfect answer to “What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?”. I won’t have to go digging deep to look for something that would sound crazy. It’s part of growing up and I am just thankful that it wasn’t as bad, it could have been worse. Now, I can laugh about it, but that was a scary move I made. Getting involved in a party brawl that I have no idea how it started or what ensued. So don’t joke with me or I’ll punch you in the face *just kidding*.

That was my red light. Looks like I’m having a phase of *experience, learn and decide*. If that’s what growing up is about, then clearly I have done much of it lately. If it’s not this then it’s that. I would love to complain and think all this is too much, but I take it in stride and I’m like, if I didn’t go through this then I wouldn’t know. Actually, I’m very thankful that the experiences have come in moderation,  you know getting that opportunity of thinking about what’s going on or what it is I’m doing, how it’s impacting my life. I’m glad I able to do that, it’s like a 2nd chance of sorts and it’s for me to decide whether to take that up or not. What I got that from this experience in particular was,

” If it’s not good for you, if it’s causing more harm than good, then it’s time you stopped especially if you can do without it”. ~ Kawi

Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were, you wonder what’s to come. However,  it comes a time, you just know it’s time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we don’t have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves for growing up.

“When you’re growing up your mother says, ‘Wear rubbers or you’ll catch cold.’ When you become an adult you discover that you have the right not to wear rubbers and to see if you catch cold or not. It’s something like that.” ~ Diane Arbus

Thankful Thursdays, don’t forget to say a small thank you today. Apparently, they say gratitude is the essence of good mental health and spirituality. Now you have every reason to … yah. Have an awesome day my people’s.

Fab Friday

Thank God It’s Friday! This week dragged and draaagggeeed for some strange reason which I’m still yet to figure, but it’s finally here.

Random Thoughts

Ever thought that you are probably the answer to someone else’s prayers? That you are the reason God will give them a yes, no or just wait a bit longer? Awkward huh!

I’m Feeling

Many things :) but it’s definitely a good feeling.

This Weekend

Pretty sure there’s something being cooked up by some people somewhere? Phone line(s) are open.

I’m Craving

Right now, I’m just hungry for some really good food. You know, like the naan and chicken curry at some Indian restaurant in Yaya *salivates*

Songs of the Week

Ooooh sometimes, I get a good feeling yeeah. I get a feeling that I’ve never never never had before … no no I get a good feeling yeeah! —> Oh … so loving this song.

I Want and Pray

For the far I have reached, I thank God. For where I’m going, I ask him to lead my path. Some things just need to work out right.

Quote Of The Week

“Isn’t it amazing how we go through the same things only in different circumstances? So whenever you get a chance to encourage, bless, share or be there for someone grab it and do something. It could mean the world to them.” ~ Kawi

In My Head

Lord give me a sign!

I don’t know when I ask for a sign I actually expect it to come dressed up in a robe with a golden tiara or in the form of a butterfly or just bird poop on my hair, so that I can end up cursing instead of blessing it. It’s got to be something, like something I can “superstitiously” relate to. Today, if you were wondering what was going through my head as I was walking home since I had mentioned it in my update, that’s what occupied a very small part of it. I am a scatter brain, so I have a million and one things running through my head including what I would do if I was compromised by some strange people…

I started playing the game, “Never again would I…”, and I was like, there are so many things that I have to put on that list. Top of the list was getting involved in undefined things, yes, it had to boil down to dating and relationships. I think emotional roller-coasters with people who don’t deserve it is just a mere waste of time…yes I said it.

Why care so much for someone who probably don’t really care about you? Why think about someone who doesn’t think of you? Why place your heart on your sleeve while someone has it locked up with those non-breakable padlocks? Why be in a relationship that you don’t know what/where exactly you are placed or it’s even headed? Why are you in doubt in the first place about all this?  Well, I happened to blubber this to one of my friends, I don’t think I waited for the answer but I must’ve heard something like he’s not ready. Makes much sense, again I say it was probably a case of Mr. Wrong and classify it as fun times. Let bygones be bygones!

Then again, I’m thinking I’ve heard all the excuses as to why someone wouldn’t be ready to have a relationship defined, such as bad past relationships, they’re in a crisis, they’re scared, they just want to have fun, they want to make money first … among many others. Here, I’m just a young lady *cheeky smile* I wear dresses sometimes, I know if I want something I’ll go for it regardless of the many challenges involved. I’m also damaged in one way or another, I’ve had past relationships, non-relationships, flings, and *I don’t know what this is* that are both good and bad, I want to make money or a living, I’m also scared of getting into defined things, I’m scared of getting damaged again, I’m scared of heart breaks who isn’t?. BUT it remains that if I want something I will make it clear that that’s what I want and brush those fears aside and go for it, and tackle the fears again if they ever arise.

So in the same light, I would expect a man to know what it is they want actually from the time they approach you and decided you know what, I like you.  Despite your fears and what you want to do first, you still know what it is you want and you should go for it. If you don’t, it’s because that’s just not it for you and so there all this excuses to sugar coat the actual thing.

Back to my sign, so I’ve decided to make a vow with myself (i.e. my mind, my feelings, my heart, my emotions) that from today, I am done with the punks *Hi 5* no more stupid flings that are going no where, no more unnecessary emotional roller-coasters, no more undefined relations. Basically boundaries need to be drawn so God please help. Now to reserve the rest for that guy! That’s a HUGE LOAD off my small chest literally…lol *breathes out fresh air*

Considering I’m an all love person, my friends shall remain loved equally. No, I’m not ditching, deleting or terminating anyone, y’all play different roles in making my life all worth living.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

This ↓ totally made my day…

There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: Entertainment, Food, and Affection.

  • It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection.
  • As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately.
  • When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating.

Under no circumstances can the food be omitted. ~ Judith Martin

True, ain’t it? LOL

ION, you can try watch this video especially if you stay alone and you love your sleep. Only watched to the spider bit, I’ll watch the rest tomorrow…hehehe!

Okay back to reading, which was the initial plan when I switched on my computer … night night, sleep sweet!

Nostalgia Is …

Remembering how my dad would baby sit us. Well I’m 8 years older than my baby sister so technically I’m the “BOSS” he he. I am the one who baby sitted my baby sister most of the time, just think lots of singing. Considering I can’t sing to save my life, I now think that’s why she used to laugh all the time *face palm*. I don’t even know what has driven me to back in time. When my mum was a nurse (actually she still is) only more managerial hehe so no night shifts and what not. Then, she used to do night shifts, so you can imagine what every one dreads, like baby crying at night, needing to be fed, diapers changed, to be lulled to sleep … yeah, my pops was a master of that. And he would still go to work the following day. I think he enjoyed every bit of it, I could feel it don’t burst my bubble…lol. At least at no point has mum ever told me he complained and she’s a chatter box like me.

My best part of all this is when he would lie on the couch and make me a small space when he folds his legs, and I would call it my small house. We would watch news together in as much as I was totally clueless on what was going on and just stare at the images, but what I enjoyed the most was the small house.

Then a couple of times, circumstances such as mid day snacks on weekends when some hunger has checked in and house-help is nowhere to be found. He would be forced to prepare a meal for us and for some reason I only remember rice and scrambled eggs. There was once he made mandazi’s with fish fillet in them, I ate so much till I got constipated … ha ha that’s a story for another day, but in summary, he had to deal with it…oi!

Anyway, I was just having a nostalgic moment. I usually have a couple of those. My dad has done (still is doing) the best job ever, and the thought of it just makes me happy that I think the world of him. He’s a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart. I always pray that the man I get will be a good father to our children too. To me that’s more than a huge blessing!

It’s only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love ~ Margaret Truman

Friday Musings

Thank God It’s Friday! That’s another week gone just like that…oi! I’m on recess *woop woop* but it’s a fake one because in as much as it’s a break, right after ‘enjoying it’ I have a CAT on Monday. I feel played, but it’s Friday and I love Fridays.

Random Thoughts

A friend or two who you can relate with and talk to is more than awesome. Then the rest can just be people who you share a laugh with or chit-chat about many other (ir)relevant things.

I’m Feeling

Like I’ve got jokes … hehe

This Weekend

A bit clueless, but I have a date with Mr. Books at some point. Not really looking forward to that one in particular, he always makes me get all serious and worked up. Especially when he asks questions that are complicated and difficult to answer then I have to ask his friends and what not…not cool!

I’m Craving

Got my alternative favorites and I didn’t even eat them, was too sleepy and full to do so. So today *rubs hands* and maybe I should pull a “no begging” on my colleagues.

Songs of the Week

Considering that I’ve been replaying it. The vid makes me feel like going sky diving…haha but maybe I should start easy like bungee jumping. Errrm … No thank you!

I Want and Pray

Always thankful. Just prayed for what I want, I hope it was from my lips to God’s ears.

Do you ever wonder how God listens to everyone’s prayers? I think after watching Bruce Almighty it kinda messed up my thoughts of this whole process…lol

Quote Of The Week

Ha ha maybe this does explain it, if you wondered why you feel some of the things you feel.

To an awesome weekend, to having fun, living, laughing and loving. Stay Safe. XO!

Friday Musings

Thank God It’s Friday! Lovely week this is by all means. Seemed draggy at first but now I’m thinking, ‘ :-o snappity snap! Time is really flying’. You know what that means especially if you’re in school. It means that all your assignments and projects are almost if not due and exams are just around the corner … hence the coffee mug!

Random Thoughts

Be sure who you relate with and how you relate with them. Maturity I tell you my dear friends, definitely doesn’t come with age or status, it comes with personality and character.

I’m pretty sure I’ve saved someone from a cardiac arrest *awaits response*. There are some things that shouldn’t shock you, make you have a sleepless night or make your heart skip a beat i.e immature people, especially if their character is suspect.

Here’s my manual of how to deal with them : Tell them what exactly they have done, once they know, then this is very important, heck leave them alone. Let them swim in the pool of immaturity alone, because if you go on and on with them you join the bandwagon too. In short, don’t engage in an argument, leaving them with the knowledge that they’ve done something quite immature is good enough and very mature of you.

I’m Feeling

Joyous, like doing a happy jig.

This Weekend

Relax by all means, you know one of those things you really deserve, this is one of those.

I’m Craving

Besides some delish *closes eyes and visualizes* barbecued pork spare ribs *salivates*, I really miss Snakes & Ladders, Monopoly, Scrabble, Ludo, Start & Stop … I mean life can’t be this serious already, I need to feed the kid me.

Songs of the Week

Her music is just purely beautiful – Jennifer Hudson

I Want and Pray

You know that point you know what you want and pray for but you’re like you know what, I leave it all unto you, you know better. So, for the far I have reached, I thank God. For where I’m going, I ask him to lead my path.
