A New Beginning

Hey!

Wow! So the day is over. Almost technically. I’m yet to eat dinner and my sister still hasn’t called.

I didn’t wake up with any sort of expectation. I just wanted to reply all my birthday tweets and comments,answer a few calls and eat dinner with the fam. Nothing more,nothing less. I just knew this day had to pass somehow. Remember i said something last week about not being excited and all. Well,i still feel the same. Nothing’s really changed.

But then i woke to this wonderful piece written by a friend of mine. I can say right there,my countenance changed. I had hope. A few minutes later another friend wrote me one of the most beautiful poems ever. It was all crowned with yet another crisp buh lovely poem. Really i was overwhelmed. Still am. The kind of love i’ve received from people i barely know (6 months still counts as barely right?!) all i can say is i feel blessed. Really (Ok,i’ve been saying that a lot lately -__-).

Someone asked me how i was gonna celebrate today. I replied and said with the fam as usual. (the same thing i’ve been doing for the past 2 decades). He later joked about how i was getting too old for the same thing i’ve been doing ever since i was born. He had a point which made me think. I’ve never really had a party (10year old party or 17 year old house party does not count). You know the kind of party with loads of friends and drinks. Yeah that kind. Then i realised i never really liked parties. The whole crowd and stuffiness. Nahh not my thing. I’d rather stay home and watch TV.

My ideal celebration is hanging out with 2 or 3 friends in the mall or at the movies to watch Fast and the Furious 6, Kareoke, or just a candle-lit dinner and red wine with le boo. Is that too much to ask?! Or just stay home have a sleepover with a couple of friends and eat WHATSOEVER i like. Or go to places i wouldn’t naturally go on a normal day. Yeah that’s what i want. I’m weird like that ^_^. Anything without drinks (Alcohol) and noise.

Moving On..

Someone called me a woman today and it hasn’t stopped lingering in my head. I’m like ”Me,a woman i’m still small oo”. You know i’ve never actually taught of that. The realisation that i’m not getting any younger hit me hard. Afterall in the North a lot of my age mates are already married with kids. *sigh. I’m actually getting old and will soon be married. Wow! So fast!

Then again,i can’t wait to leave my parents’ house and for my dad to stop thinking i’m still 12 because of my height. I’m hoping they can now trust me enough to fly alone without thinking i need a guardian. I’m looking forward to taking up responsibilities, making life changing decisions and facing and overcoming challenges.

*sigh

Like i said earlier, this is just the beginning.

ReCap!

Hey Guys! 😀

*heaves a sigh*
Wow! It’s that time of the month again! Yes!! It’s the end of the month of May!!! God has been so faithful from January till date. If i begin to count my blessings,i won’t finish this post. I’m just so thankful!!

Wow! This month has been……this month! Yeah i’m lost for words. I dunno what to say/write. It’s been overwhelming especially concerning this blog. I’ve had loads of inspiration to write on which i was soo excited for. I received my very first Liebster Award. *whoop!! (More to come IJN). I also had shocking revelations i must say. You know that feeling when someone you’ve known for a long while just reveals something out of the blue. It just takes you off balance then you find yourself reminiscing the times you had together. Anyways that’s all in the past. There was also an overflow of emotions. Wow! I remember writing a post and crying at the same time. (Actually there were 2. Search for yourself -__-) That was really emotional for me. There were relationship tips as well as dreams and realities. And not forgetting the very dreaded Writer’s block. Ugh! I was so happy to overcome it!!.
My Natural Hair Activism also took off on a good start. (I promise a post on that). I found myself encouraging more ladies mostly on my TL to go natural. I was at the peak of converting @IRepEfeh. I encouraged her to take her time and do loads of research. As they say Knowledge is Power. I don’t want her to have any form of regret at the end. If she eventually succumbs, she’ll be my very first product. :D. In all it is/was a good month i must say. I think i wrote more original contents than any other month. Can’t remember now.

As always i’m really looking forward to a new month especially because it’s my birth month ^_^ and that of my dad’s and also because i’m expecting something really big from God. Yeah! So i can’t wait. I’m soo excited!! *rubbing palms* :D. Not forgetting more and more blogspiration. I’m looking forward to writing more and more posts :D.

My work here is done.
See y’all next month 😀
