Fear of 13

Hello Blogsville,

How's everyone doing? How YOU doing? Hope things are going well.

Sorry for my absence, life has been hectic. And, I've been trying to "put my house in order."

Had two mid-terms earlier this week, and lets just say the Lord is in control...cos the kind of questions that were on there, and the way they were phrased...well, like I said, He's in control.

Thank you to everyone for ur concern on my last post. Taking responsibility for one's actions is tad-bit hard. Especially, when you have no clue of what the final out come will be. It could either go well, and you get a chance to make it right or you don't and then you lose it all. Well, its not a good feeling sha, and the anxiety can drive one up the freaking wall...but the inner peace that comes when its all settled is so calming. (Hpe that made sense...if it ddn't, dnt sweat it!)

So I finally opened another blog for school; really wish I cld share it with you guys, but then that would mean my anonymous status will be going out the window! Not ready for that just yet...:(.

Help me out my dear blogsville residents, please who remembers the infamous Macmillian Reader? The one with Mr & Mrs Nwosu, and them cooking rice and chicken. And also the very popular Ali and Simbi characters. Simbi with her thread hair-do. We were reminiscing @ school the other day, and Zena said she had never heard of Pls can someone tell her that Ali and Simbi were primary school celebrities

Snow in October??? I'm finished!!! This is definitely gonna be a bone chilling winter this year, and I'm sooo not looking forward to it o! Dear, Lord. Seriously, u have no idea how much I dread winter. :(. Waiting for the bus in such bone piercing, blood freezing, toe-numbing conditions is not fun AT ALL! Just thinking about it, makes me wanna cry.

On a totally random note, in my attempt to try and learn new words (even though, I forget them within days) and increase my vocab to Oga Bagucci's grammar level I found this really long word, and thought it was interesting.

triskaidekaphobia \tris-ky-dek-uh-FOH-bee-uh\, noun:

Fear or a phobia concerning the number 13.

Aiight people, that's about it for now. Its time for me to go have some 'Sweet Dreams'
Have a great day guys!

Talk to you guys soon,
Miss Enigma!

I want what I cannot have. I knew I cldn't have it, but I went ahead and found a substitute to pacify the want. And now I have woken up a bigger monster. Weak to resist, slave to my want. Shoulda. Coulda. Woulda. Can't take it back, can't rewind. Knew I shouldn't have, but went ahead all the same; a selfish decision. I take responsibility even though u're oblivious to the situation; I am haunted by it. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Argghh!!!

Not a Fan of...

I'm not a fan of smoking. But most of all, I dnt like when a smoker lights up in d midst of people who aren't smoking, thereby forcing everyone within that area to inhale the smoke. Pls step aside and respect public space. It breaks my heart when I see parents smoking infront of their kids, especially babies and toddlers, who have no choice but to inhale the smoke into their tender lungs.

I'm not a fan of spitting on the floor. Normally in 9ja when people spit, they usually either cover it up with sand or do it out of eye-sight, like in the gutter or something (not all the time sha). But in this America, people seem to do it everywhere and anywhere. Was on the bus the other day, and some dude spat on the floor...I mean, for why na? Its disgusting enough to look at, but who knows what sort of air-borne disease is now floating freely in the air, especially in a confined space like a bus. *sigh* Lord help me.

I'm not a fan of exposed pant-lines or butt cracks. If a belt cnt hold ur jeans inplace or they are too tight, then wear another pair. Exposing ur butt-crack is NOT sexy or sexually inviting pls. If u decide to wear leggings pls make sure ur top, dress-shirt or waeva covers ur butt nicely, if u insist on wearing a top that doesn't, make sure check in the mirror that ur underwear isn't exposed; because of the light fabric used in making some leggings, even black underwear is sometimes still visible so double-check or ask someone else to check for you. Save urself the embarrassment of walking around town with ur goodies on display.

I'm not a fan of being FIERCE by force. Its great to wanna look good and divalicious to school, but you can't if you look like you're in pain wearing those 6inch heels. Instead of strutting your stuff in them heels, you end up walking like you're on hot coal and the expression on ur face is jst indescribable. There are other alternatives that still make you look fierce n' spare ur poor feet from going into a coma!

I'm not a fan of masking-up. Making-up yes, but masking-up no! Apply foundation in MODERATION! Make-up is supposed to help enhance beauty and not destroy or deface the already wonderful masterpiece that God has made. If there's no one present to help double-check your make-up, use your camera or your phone to take a quick picture to see where or what needs fine-tuning before you step out and chase people away from you.

Hello Blogsville,

How's everybody doing? Hope y'all are having a great week thus far? Mine has been ok, even though I caught a cold while in MD. I lost my voice and I sound horrible, that's when u manage to hear me; the other times u dnt even hear me at all...all u hear is something that sounds like a dying old woman. Oh well, it is well!

So for my PR Writing class, we have to create a blog! The purpose of the blog, is to tap into our creative writing juices and start sharing our work with the world, and also to share the challenges, struggles and successes we face as Advertising and PR majors. I just tire for my Prof. sha o, its hard enough to manage one blog, not to talk of two. I have no clue what am gonna be posting on that blog; whatever written assignment I do in class, I'll just upload it on there...I cnt fit shout. The wahala now sef is coming up with an interesting title for the blog...any suggestions will be highly welcome!!!

I'm home alone for the next 4weeks...Momsie is on vacay in 9ja.*sigh* I milz my
The silence is a tad bit annoying jo...but I go survive.

Talk to you guys soon,
Miss Enigma!

NY to MD for Indy Weekend!!!

Hello Blogsville,

Happy Belated Independence Day to all my Nigerians, and Nigerian supporters out there!
Hope y'all had a great Indy celebration. I did! My celebration itinerary was the reverse of Nice Anon' I left NY for MD @ 9pm Friday, and made it to the 9ja party @ Love (club in Baltimore) by about 1.30am. And then my girls and I went to Ibiza (another club) on Saturday, and then the beach @ Ocean City on Sunday. I had a great weekend! As usual, its always fun with the girls, and then I saw old friends from high-school, and made new friends. I also might have had a tad bit too much fun, but its under control...I hope. *fingers crossed*

My happy feet...:) It was a nice day!!!

So about the cologne buying issue in my last post, the thing is I think sometimes,(some of) my beloved people back in 9ja are a tad bit inconsiderate. I mean dnt get me wrong, its ok to ask someone overseas to help you get an item or two or three as the case may be, but I also believe it depends on a couple of factors. Like how close u r to this person, u r certain that he/she can afford to cover ur requests without adding another notch on their already tight belt, and also asking nicely rather than putting him/her in a tough spot of not being able to say no or yes. So yeah, someone who hasn't called me in a long while, and has no clue of how I dey survive for here, or whether dem don sack me for work o, calls me up and asks that I send a cologne with a scent that lasts long...I won't even lie; I was pissed!

Double pissed when I asked why his girlfriend who recently moved to Yankee and has a job cldn't get it, and he said (paraphrasing), how do I expect her to afford it? Since she just started working and all. Anyway, bottomline is that I think sometimes people just dnt get it. Living overseas doesn't mean that there is tree of wealth in your backyard. Having a job doesn't mean that one's bank account is robust. Pictures on FB dnt tell the full-story; they dnt show the bills that need to be paid by month's end or the other responsibilities that come with living abroad. They dnt know that a meaningful chunk of the already limited pay-check goes to freaking taxes!!! I cld go on, but...oh well.

So, I decided to get the bag in the bordeaux!!! Went into the store and looked @ the purple and the bordeaux, and the purple isn't as nice as it looked online. Already rocking it, and I love it...thanks guys!

Ermm...well that's about it for now, will update soon with a more coherent post soon. I'm just all over the place ryt now...or maybe am just Love y'all to bits!

Have a great week ahead guys!!!

Talk to you guys soon,
