Octo Month

New Month is here! Always wondered what’s behind the “Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends” song. You know one of those songs that you always sing along and gladly use their title, but never really understood it, that’s one of them. For me, this September did me good. Got to figure some things as well:

This always exist, everywhere! Hate them, love them … either way you just have to embrace them and be sure to abide by them. I love this ones, you know the ones you know are there and no one is forcing them down your throat but should you go against them, someone is definitely coming for your throat…maybe not literally. Though I think broken unwritten rules hurt the most, and kept unwritten rules bring you the most joy.

Where you are, fun should be there. Fun is not the environment or the place you’re at. Fun is in the people, the people who make that environment bearable. Fun is in how you interact, your attitude, your ability to ooze some awesomeness. You can be in the coolest or fanciest place, but if you’re boring and stuck up then it will just be that. But you could be in a “not so nice” place, but just because you’re interesting, making the most of what you have, laughing, stories and all…that turns out to be so much fun. Fun is created by you, if doesn’t exist.

You deserve this. To figure yourself out, to figure those that are yours and that which is yours out. It could be a few hours, it could be a day, whatever you feel fit for you. Just make time for just that.

Oh now when you invite me for events make it +1 because I for sure have company. The perks of dating, amazing company.

Delish discoveries! There is this Ice cream called Igloo. This is the ish, I mean, we can sideline London Dairy, yes, I said that! We’re yet to try out the different flavors, for starters we did butterscotch, yumminess gallore! Next will be Fruit Salad, then Tuf*something*.

Delish Discoveries

Goofy lift moments. There’s one thing I have come to realize, it’s rare to find yourself alone in the lift. Very rare. So when an opportunity presents itself, you can do things, make funny faces e.t.c then compose yourself (once that “chinese lady” speaks) before the lift opens, because it could also amount to the most embarrassing day…haha.

What am I looking to achieve in October. Let’s just do four things so that I don’t beat myself over it.

  • An out of town weekend plan
  • A sample of the other Igloo ice creams
  • Many more Kodak moments
  • Chapter 1 and 2 of my thesis to be done

We all know that it’s also the awareness month, right? Where you get some of your crucial body parts checked and screened. Where you get more familiar with yourself, few times you can get away with touching yourself…haha just kidding, but really! We need to fight this monster *cancer* that’s eating up our loved ones.

If you don’t have a place to go for check up’s ( breast screening, pap smear, prostate screening among other general ones) and cervical cancer vaccines, I recommend; Family Health Care Medical Center, Phoenix Hse, 5th Floor (Nairobi, Kenya). They have amazing services, that’s where I go.

To new challenges, opportunities, expectations. Let October be the month that for you, live it, learn it, love it.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is coming to an end in a few days. And I can assure you if there’s one thing that has been really publicized this month, it’s the Breast Cancer Awareness cause. Everyone has come up with an initiative that encourages every woman and man, young and old to go and have their boobies examined.

I love it that we’re all mindful of others and ensuring that everyone has at least had a check up. I have had friends and relatives diagnosed with cancer and to be honest I hate that disease, it just eats you up our loved ones. It’s like a prolonged horror movie … in and out of hospital, drugs, depreciating health, worried family members, financial drains … it just doesn’t get any better.

It’s inevitable, but can be detected earlier and if detected earlier, something can be done (it’s said that it can be curable if detected at an early stage) and that’s why with all these awareness programmes, we should go ahead and get examined and be cleared off of any worries associated with cancer. Especially those of which can be felt or examined, so far I know of, breast cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer.

So my friends have this project going on called #ThePinkProject. It’s usually advised that you should go for this examinations yearly. So what they do, is that once you register with them here, you get a yearly reminder. The reminder will be on your birthday, so just in case you forget your birthday or other people do, at least The Pink Project will remember you :)

Do you know why everyone is doing this awareness stuff?  It’s because we cannot imagine a world without you! Yeah … I know you’re probably thinking, but you don’t even know me, but the world, my dear friend is like a ball gum, tiny! So if your family members or friends are sad, chances are that it’s trickling down to someone else are very high, and it could get to you, me and anyone else. So if we strive to make sure that everyone is alright, then that right there, will lead to happy people.

Ever asked yourself, what the world would be without women?

I think women are the source of life, by all means. And no, I don’t mean procreation and giving birth, that’s standard. She makes everything come to life —> at home, at work, in the streets. They bring color and the femininity is just calming.

Yes, women make everything complicated, and they will make you want to work harder to please them, to make them happy. They express their emotions, and their eyes are the windows to their heart and soul. That’s why you will never get a book on how to understand a woman…hehe *sorry dudes*. They can do literally anything they set their hearts to do and that’s why they make good multi-taskers and can really take care of “the world”. And that’s what makes the world a happy place for you.

So a world without women, would be lifeless, nothing to look forward to and definitely no one to please , difficult … They are that one other thing that makes life interesting, a piece of the puzzle! Truth told it would be sucky! Ha ha . Okay, I’m a woman, so I’m biased, but I’m sure a day without me would be disastrous to many :p

By the way, the Breast Cancer Examination is something you can do yourself as well : Check out this link  here . It’s healthy to touch yourself and know what your body is about. Feel anything abnormal, be sure to go the clinic and get a thorough check up.

For cervical and prostate cancer, you need to go to the clinic as they have to do some lab tests and so on. There’s also a vaccination for cervical cancer known as Human Papillomavirus Vaccine. Just go to the clinic and inquire about it. Personally I went to Family Health Care Center a branch of Family Health Options Kenya, that’s where I go for anything gynecological. Their services are amazing and totally informational on all aspects of reproductive health. In case you were looking for a clinic to go you can try it out. They are located at Phoenix House, 5th Floor, along Kenyatta Avenue.

Don’t forget to be your sister’s and brother’s keeper. God bless!

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK

Be Aware – It’s October, and it’s the boobies month (. )( .) —hehe, and to that effect…we would like to create breast cancer awareness… so as to be able to identify and curb it.

As a result, a group of girls and probably a dude or two led by @bintiM aka Aisha who has created a blog whereby we will talk about boobies/breasts/boobs year in, year out … There is so much about them and everyone has something to say about the pair of God-given “Succulent twins” in the case of women … and dots for men..hehe *pun intended*.

I’m Craving

Today I have a very cheap crave – Cadbury Dairy Milk with Mint Chips…and i’ve had it for like the whole week with no time to get it, or when there’s time it’s not available *sigh*

I Want, Wish and Pray

That God hears the cry of my heart and grants me the desires of my heart.

Sometimes it’s really hard to read the heart and analyze what it actually wants, or sometimes you know what you want but you just don’t know how to say it out aloud. But I pray that God, hears all of them and grants them accordingly.
