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*.
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.
