Is it Settling?

I think everyone should have read this blog post by now and if you haven't, please take a second to read through it and then come back to see what I have to say on the topic.

I'll wait...

...Are you back? Good.

So, I read this blog post and thought about what I had just read. Not long after, a friend messaged it to me and he asked me what I thought about it, and I thought about it some more. I have said before that I totally get why people settle, but in my heart of hearts I don't know that I am one of those that can go through with settling. After reading this, I can't say this girl was wrong or she was right because all it boils down to is that we are all different individuals. Now, to be honest my first thought when I read this was this is crap BUT she *seems* to be at peace with her decision and ultimately I have always thought that that is an important factor when you walk down the aisle, to be at peace with your decision. But, there are other factors to consider.


Friday Randoms

Hiya folks, happy friday to ya. Hope everyone had a good week but good or bad it's always great to have the weekend here. It's been a stressful week and half for me and I haven't been sleeping so well so by early evening, I am so wiped out. I was a crabby monster today. oops. I heard of at least 3 deaths this week and I am just wondering if this is what it is to get older, just the constant news of someone dying, it's a bit scary but may the souls of all those who passed rest in peace. Before I start randoms, I did have one bright spot this week and got the best news from a friend. You know who you are, so so happy for ya and love you plenty! Alrighty folks, let's go dia!

I watch tv and see white folks fretting over their kid can't go to xyz college because there's no college fund. I am like shuo, student loan no dey? job no dey? You guys know about my hatred for student loans and I understand totally wanting to avoid it but it's an option, people haven…

Loving Yourself - The Demi Moore Interview

Demi Moore on her feelings about her body:

I have had a love-hate relationship with my body. When I’m at the greatest odds with my body, it’s usually because I feel my body’s betraying me, whether that’s been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn’t eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn’t get my body to do what I wanted it to do. … Sweet and savory. I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin — thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, “You’re too thin, and you don’t look good.”
I find peace when I don’t see my body as my enemy, when I step back and have appreciation and look at all that my body has done for me. It’s allowed me to give birth to three beautiful children, allowed me to explore different roles as an actor, allowed me to be strong. You can’t look at …

The Pre-Nup Issue

So by now, you must be under a rock if you haven't heard how Vanessa and Kobe reached a settlement in their divorce which included $75 million and 3 of their mansions. My dearly beloved twitter had boys and girls alike with their panties in a bunch about this issue. I exaggerate, let me be nice and say they simply aired their views on the matter. There were two sides: those who thought Vanessa was a bloodsucking, greedy bitch who didn't deserve the money and those who thought Kobe was a cheating bastard who deserved to be hit in the pockets.

Left to me alone, it's really not that serious. This isn't the first couple to have a divorce in California that involved large sums of money but I have to say I am quite amused by how passionate everyone was getting. Is it brand new news that a spouse is entitle to half the partner's earnings in California after 10 years of marriage? - this is where those that think she is a gold digger will say she waited specifically to hit t…

Come what may

Happy hump day folks. I feel like I should apologize for my recent posts of just songs on here but it's my blog abi? I actually think if i put my mind to it, I could express myself with just songs. I had a mini road trip today and that always equals reconnecting with songs I haven't heard in forever. I might as well tell you there is no rhyme or reason to this post and I have no point at all. Like Monica said, "just one of those days", well except in this case it means so much to say but nothing will be said. I think I'll go get myself a drink (sidebar: it's pretty easy to be an alcoholic sha). There won't be any randoms this week, so have yourself a lovely weekend. I intend to have a good one by God's grace. :)

I think I know the Moulin Rouge soundtrack word for word from beginning to end.


Poison & Wine

I adore this song. Have a great week ahead, my lovelies :)

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
Oh you think your dreams are the same as mine

Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice but I still choose you

Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will


Friday Randoms

I was supposed to do this last night but after days of not sleeping, my body seems to have finally come around and I am crashing something major, so I am scrambling to do this right quick before I head to work. It's been such a busy week at work and it's been oh so cold :(. We've had freeze warnings and such, even my hot water doesn't get as hot as it usually does but no complaining,some have it worse complete with snow. It's the weekend! yay!. I'll go ahead and just random.

Every now and then I see comments from people who say thick girls are tricky because in the future they eventually get fat. I always wonder about that logic and wonder why everyone seems to ignore the fact that there have been slim girls who just blew up from nowhere.

I was reading (or watching) don't remember and it said that there are cases of having orgasms during childbirth. To which I call bullshit. Who comes up with these things?

It's really cute seeing men who just adore thei…

Just enjoy the show

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why

Slow it down, make it stop or else my heart is going to pop
'Cause it's too much, yeah it's a lot to be something I'm not
I'm a fool out of love 'cause I just can't get enough

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go and just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the signs and synchronize in time
It's a joke nobody knows, they've got a ticket to the show

I want my money back, I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjo…

Taking Stock 2011

Taking Stock was a blog post idea that I got from another blog back in 2010. It's a pretty cool way of just documenting how your year went in different aspects of your life. I have been asked what I thought of 2011 and if it was a good year for me. Quite frankly, any year which I get to live through and see a new year is a good year because it means I get the chance to keep forging ahead and keep hope alive. So without further ado, here we go.


Definitely not giving myself top marks this year in this area. I mean, I went to church and said my prayers but I can't say that I grew spiritually and complacency is never a good thing. If I could just find that magical serum that transforms good intentions to actions. This year, I'd like to have more quality prayer time with God and work on not just praying but also listening to what He has to say to me.


My family was great last year and were always there for me as far as distance can allow. I got to see my mom much more t…

Touch Down Yankee

So I am back. Just got in a few hours ago and it was a loooong and tedious journey but I finally made it home safe and sound, bags intact and all and for that I thank Baba God. Happy New Year guys!!. Hope everyone had a wonderful new year, I had a good one. For one, compared to last year, I wasn't in the air feeling sorry for myself. I was with loved ones surrounded by too much food. I still didn't get a new year kiss though :(. One day....

Naija was fun. Naija is always fun.Unfortunately, I can't get into major, major details :D, so just take my word for it. It was good seeing a lot of friends and hanging out and just enjoying myself with no worries. Nepa was so good to me (yes me), in the two weeks that I was there, I didn't sleep without light not for one day (can you believe that?). I took leaving harder than I thought I would, I was actually really bummed and wished I could spend more time but back to reality jare. Operation Get Taynement to move was in effect and …
