I think 90% of the people I know decided to get engaged over the holidays. After the peace and quiet on weddings that I had over the last few years, seems the surge is back. Anyways, having a talk with one of my friends who is getting married and she says that when you do decide to settle down and get married it's never 100% what you want and it involves some kind of sacrifice. I don't remember everything else but I remember her saying most of the time if you are looking for that intellectual guy for some reason most of them seem to be douches. That made me chuckle.
They never use plastic bags in movies/tv. Almost always, paper bags. Besides Whole Foods, I don't see a lot of that in real life.
I don't watch Naija movies often but the few times I do, how come they always have light? I've never even seen a scene where they take light and they turn on the gen.
Are people born squirters or is it learned?
Ah the life of being single. I randomly wondered if it was rude to invite someone to a wedding and instruct them to not have a +1. Does that happen to married people? As in, do they not get invited even though only one person is the friend but because they are married it automatically means 2 people.
I can't count the number of wedding invitations I have received where the # of guests portion has been filled out for me already with a big fat 1. I don't take it to heart because I have a thing about weddings. It's the couples money and they have a right to do whatever works best for them because weddings sure as hell ain't cheap.
All I want for 2014 is to not feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.
A friend recommended a book for me, Conversations with God. So far, so good. It has some far out theories but the basic gist of the book speaks to me and is helping me with the new outlook on life I am trying to have.
When you have a kid that's one race, is it weird when you have another kid that's mixed race? I mean I know Heidi did it I just wonder if its weird. I think about if Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson have a kid then I think of Halle Berry who has 2 baby daddies but they are both mixed race so they won't have questions.
Why are naija parents so gung ho about marriage when most of them had shitty ones?
Losing a boyfriend must be so weird. Someone you loved so much and yet don't have rights to. Even worse this quote: "Losing someone close to you at a moment of tension in the relationship"
Nna, this Lupita Nyong'o worship is something fierce. I mean the babe is cool and all but this one na frenzy. I have my theories but moving right along.
"Vulnerability is about sharing our feelings and our experiences with people who have earned the right to hear them"
I read somewhere where someone took issue with Oprah saying she couldn't have it all - kids and career. But I do agree with her though. I don't think anyone - man or woman - can have it all. Something will always suffer or you feel guilt about not giving more to something.
You hear ladies saying there are no good guys. Granted this may be true with the way our generation is free balling it now but I do feel we ladies need to be able to discern what we want from what we need. We get so caught up in what we want and the idea of how we want our man to be that we don't realize this may not be whats good for us.
You know there are some women who always seem to have a guy and seamlessly move on from one relationship to another. I can understand that. I don't think its hard if all you're looking for is a boyfriend. What surprises me is, is it that easy to make a connection with someone? Because to me, thats the hardest part of this boy/girl business. Not meeting people but meeting people you click with.
