Random Thursday..or Friday?

Hi guys, I thought I had been out a while but I checked and its just been 2 weeks. Guess it just feels like longer. Like they say, a lot can happen in a short time. I had been dealing with some medical issues that left me in a lot of pain the last few months. Many doctor and hospital visits later, I finally had surgery last week. We thank God that it went well, as evidenced by me writing this. I am on the recovery train now and yesterday was my first good day and gave me hope so looking forward to the future and yay to no more pain. I have learned so much about people, life and myself these last few days. Thank you Baba God and even though my aunt will never read this, we have our many ups and downs but I really hope she knows how appreciative I am of all that she has been doing for me since I could barely move around. I also want to thank my friends who have been there the last few months listening to my complaints, offering to go on dr visits with me, praying and just being there for me. Thank you ever so much. This is beginning to sound like some award show, I realized I had some randoms so let me share with you, eh?

Why didn't anyone tell me about Graceland? The show has been on my dvr and I am really truly enjoying it. Yay to being up to 2 shows I now watch on USA.

I am not sure I can say this enough, but I truly believe that when a man wants you, you will know and I don't mean that in a sexual way. I mean when a guy wants to be committed to you.

I really like Meredith and Christina's relationship on Grey's Anatomy. They just get each other. They can depend on each other and don't tip toe around each other and speak the truth.

I read this article about a serial cheater. My only question is why does he feel the need to get married? Why embarrass his fiancee? Here's the article if you are interested - http://nymag.com/thecut/2013/07/confessions-of-a-serial-cheater.html

I really truly enjoyed the TLC biopic. It was very well done.

Something I struggle with is always remembering that everyone doesn't think the same way I do and vice versa. I do a lot of deductive reasoning and sometimes expect everyone to do so, so when in convo I am asked certain questions, I am like huh?

"A friend loves at all times, a brother is born for a time of adversity" - Proverbs 17:17

I am one of those people that have a sense of urgency. I don't relate to people who wait last minute or are laid back about big events. I am that irritant that tries to plan and weigh pros/cons/efficiency.

"So many Nigerians operate under the flawed teaching that we are only doing well if we are doing better than someone else"

The missionary position gets a bad rap. I'm also pretty sure more people than would admit like it but don't want to be labeled boring.

That stunning ela when you realize you really aren't as important to someone as you thought you were. haha, my friend said this. Thought it was funny.


Masters of Sex, my new favorite show gave an analogy by a woman who had been having bad sex and discovered the joys of new sex. She said how her mom said it was lady like to have small feet and forced her to wear a size 6, until one day she wore her true size which was a size 8 and she never knew this comfort was even possible.

There was a time I truly believed most Nigerians were waiting till marriage lol. I remember when I was 13 and my "bf" asked me for some "fun". I was absolutely horrified! loool

The theory that squats increase butt size. I have never met anyone in real life that it has worked for. Made it firmer?yes but made it bigger? never seen

You know what I hate? That saying "It could be worse". I get the reasoning. But I feel, it dismisses or disregards the current emotion/feeling of the subject.

That being said our generation might be lacking the empathy gene.

Do you have a time limit on how long you must date a guy before you marry him? Used to be 4 years for me but now that I am an old woman I guess not so much.

That's all I got for you guys. Have a wonderful weekend guys. Thank God for each day you get to see a new day and tell your loved ones you love them.

Loved too many of the randoms, now to try and comment on them all.

I LOVE MEredith and Christina, they're probably my fave characters. Thankfully i do have that type of relationship in real life.

I won't say i have a sense of urgency, but i absolutely can not stand people who are laid back about any and everything, like have a plan biko.

That stunning ela sha.

Date a guy for 4yrs kwa? Na PHD?
IS it a degree? Biko kwa. I know i used to have the how long is long enough question but i never thought 4yrs sha. These days....... 0.5yrs issorait.

Oh and i tell my loved ones i love them all the time. Very important.

Let her go....Best.

Taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaynnnne! I'm so sorry you've been in pain (see I rhymed for you, obviously this is love).
I am sending some prayers your way, wish I could do more!

Onto Randoms
I love Mer and Christina too!

I don't believe in that time limit theory, obviously you wont marry someone you met yesterday but putting time caps on a relationship can be futile. take it each day at a time, talk about it, when both parties feel ready... Jump!
