Inner Glow

There has been this uncommon aura around you these days, what is the secret? asks Mr A.

So babe tell me, wetin dey happen? this transformation no be here o! ah ahn! asks Ms B

Na wa o! you just go naija go brush up , freshen up, add up, wetin dem give you chop for there? asks MS C and MR D. 

These days your pictures are unique..what has changed?..seriously tell me....i want to follow too... asks Ms E. 

The list goes on and on, different diction's, all referring to one thing 'Change', i can not myself the fathom this change they all speak about (in case you haven't figured it yet, they are all referring to me), so i went home over this summer, spent 2 months at home in Nigeria, just eating and sleeping and earnestly trying to gain a few pounds, 

this wasn't my initial plan, i wanted to go home and eat, visit friends and family, gather materials for my thesis, etc... but i got home and in the sight of everybody i looked skinny dreadful, my younger one actually said i looked like a model out of a magazine, my mum was convinced i was sick of some sort, i know my dad had same thoughts but in place of words, he just kept buying mt fatty foods/snacks every single day , my grand ma, said i looked 5 years younger than my real age, (but not in a good way, because that would scare my prospective husband away, he might just think i am way too young for marriage) it is of cause always about marriage for grand parents.

then what did i do? i ate and ate and ate even more, i had a constant diet of a mixture of Malt and milk every night at 11 pm, (oh! what advice i did not get in other to gain some pounds), i wouldn't go into that, so as not scare the sh*t outta you.
at the end of the summer break, i couldn't fit into any of the clothes i went back home with, suffice to say that i went back everything i had except the winter clothing and then when there was no space in my luggage again, i gave the rest out to a second hand store, i just just one pair of jeans that i wore for the remaining two weeks till i came back to Europe.

this was good, because instead of clothing occupying space in my box, it gave me room for foodstuff, (oh boy, did i bring everything i could lay my hand on, literally everything that could pass airport control).

i'm eating well, i'm happyish, yet people are asking about the change in me? some even attributed it to a boy and or sex (like i would  need either of those to make me glow? inner beauty bi*ch!)

*heavy breathing! good to get that off my chest! 
stay tuned!
more coming your way.

Weekend Trip

It was Friday June the 12th, i was up at am, hurriedly took a shower and had a quick plate of cereal, left home at 7 and strolled to the Harbor where the rest of the group were already waiting for me,(just so you know, i didnt come late, they just came too early), so the thing is we planned a trip to Finland (Helsinki) and i thought it would be a fantastic idea to get away from the familiar buildings and routes in Estonia, get a little out of hand and have some fun in Helsinki, so i agreed to go.

In the ship it was exciting, we gisted and made a lot of noise, we were an odd group of 11, so been quiet was impossible, we had a lot to eat and drink, and then went to the dock for pictures (of cause it was my idea, lol). came back talked some more and laughed even harder. 

Cut the story short we got to Helsinki and then we realized no one actually as in actually was in charge, the lady who was to come pick us up was waiting in the city center and we needed to get to her, the panic began for some people, because we started debating on which Tram to take which ticket to buy, what was the schedule like, are going to stay together or not? 

So eventually we met her and she took us to have a meal and then said we would be fixed with different families and then meet Saturday evening, but she doesnt know which families that will be yet, (there was actually more indecision) i just called a friend and hooked myself up at her place, the group was scattered, we just went different ways, some people stayed out of Helsinki... some decided to stay over till Monday, i was in a comfortable place, but that was not the main idea of the trip, soi decided to take the last ship back to Tallinn on Saturday, i didnt enjoy the trip as i thought i would.

Helping Hand

 So i have turned this page to my impersonal diary, the use of this word is because this is an open site and hence i cant vent as much as i want. *sucks right?...
Anyways, i had some happy thoughts and wanted to pen them down, because it has been a while and my 'mind - heart-head - brain' whatever storage space i have is bursting full with events, crap, goodies, and all what not. now the thing tho, is that i couldn't for over an hour get to this page, 

I didn't have a clue at first, (remember i suck at technology), so i blamed myself for 45 minutes, finally realizing i was heading nowhere, as i kept opening and closing different pages, which ended up bringing back to where i started from in the first place. (come to think of it, i'm sure i was just going around in the same circle *ptff)

Thank goodness, i finally realized i couldn't get in because , OK back story -  i lent / gave someone my laptop  to use for some hours and she ended up setting her mail addy as the domain email, and thus, i have to go through her email to access any goggle related app! ( i know right?, what nerve she got!) so i had to now find that button, i mean i know i have seen it somewhere, sometime ago, you know, the one that says 'delete account', but i couldn't for the wold of me remember where i saw or how to get to it, ( this isnt funny) it took me another round in a different circle to finaly get to it, (whips sweat from face).

I have been known to always give a helping hand, but as we say in pidgin English ' this one hang me for neck', kai! i was so pissed  at the girl, (i'm sure she was having a blissful night rest wherever she was), after a while, i started been pissed with myself for so many things, inclusive of which was stupidity.

however, in the process of my round-abouting, i found some interesting thing about myself on the internet, lol,  i have to go back now and print that page.
see you soon.
