I was tagged by Madam Fabulola and this is harder than I thought. First let me put a disclaimer that I am not including God on the list, because that's a given constant. Without him I won't be here to be listing whatever so called things that I love, so he gets ever special recognition that doesn't require being on a list. Okay let me try(in no particular order):
1)Music: Happy, Sad, Up or Down, music is my only constant. There is a song out there for every emotion and a song out there that always conveys your feelings and it's a comforting feeling to know that at least one other person out there shares the same emotion. Whether its the beat, vocals, lyrics everyone has their own but music is something I love.
2)Family and Friends: I've been so blessed in this area of life and I am truly grateful. I have the most supportive family and friends and even though we disagree from time to time I have never had "major betrayal" like most people talk about *knock on wood*
3)Dancing: Man, I love to dance. Just hearing a beat puts my head in a tizzy, I have to move. I danced in college in our african dance group and we danced in a yearly competition. I always looked forward to practice and joked that I was in college just for dance. Post College, I joined a diverse dance group but had to give it up cuz I didn't have enough time for rehearsals.It's all good I still dance in front of my mirror.
4)Pop Culture/TV/Movies: Nothing gets me all excited as anything as discussing anything pop culture related. Talking about xyz reality show, talking about that movie, talking about award shows etc etc. I can't explain but I get such an adrenaline rush it's the weirdest thing. I am not joking when I say that talking about that with whoever I'm with qualifies as pre foreplay to foreplay lol
5)My blackberry: O how I love this device! It's like glued to me at all times. I am hardly separated from it. That glowing red light, blinking and signifying a new message makes my heart smile. Yes I am an addict, and then???
6)Food: Some may disagree with me but my padded body is proof that I love food. Like there are so many choices, so many things to pick from,and they taste oh so good. I swear there is something addictive in food in this country(hehe and not additives).
7)Zee Eenternet: Where oh where would I be without the internet?It gives me access to internet, instant message, blogsville and the ever handy google.
8)Traveling: Besides the actual flying, it's nice to visit new places and make new memories in a place other than where you live.
9)Cuddling: There is something calming about it.
10)Love: Love is a beautiful thing whether between family and friends or two people in a relationship either way when its genuine love it only leads to nothing but good things. love is what makes friends and fam there for you when you need them the most, its what made God give us his only son, its what breeds the environment for a happy family. I don't always believe love conquers all but for the most part it is a good thing.
Phew, Ok I survived. I am enjoying my time in the windy city, I ate waaay too much food today. I digress - I tag the following people if they haven't done so:Omosi T, Ms O, Vivian, LucidL, Neefemi, Nutty J and MPB.
Have a lovely rest of the week!
