Back Story: My white watch.

Sortilegio
First and foremost, I am utterly in love with my white watch. It took me a year to get it and I still can’t believe I have one in my possession.
Some of my friends (those who have seen it) have been asking me. ‘ why a white watch?’ It is in this vein that I decided to do a post on it. Part of it is conceit and the other part is not to have to tell the back story several times.


I’m not a huge fan of novellas but if it is a good one, I give it a chance. Around 2011, there was one called Sortilegio on one of the stations that I avidly watched because of William Levy. Yes, the hotty with the body I used to think. Anyway Jacqueline Baracamontes who was the female lead was wearing a white watch in one of the episodes and it caught my eye. I was intrigued. It looked so different and out of place. I mean, how many people have you seen sporting white watches? It is an odd sight to say the least. I  think that is what made me want one.
After that, I noticed my aunt had one and so did someone at the gym. Funny thing is I never asked either of them for a close up look. I think, I rather preferred the mystery and had that feeling you have when see something you like but don’t want a close up look for fear of being disappointed? That’s how I felt so I continued on to entertaining the mystery and thoughts of how it would actually look like up close when I had one.


The only way I’d ever get one that is actually good without fear of fading (if at all they do), imitations or cheap looking ones was to wait for my mother to travel. And she did after two years. She hadn’t travelled since may 2010. The one thing I asked her not to forget is getting me a white watch. I reminded her all the time to ensure that.


I was pleasantly surprised when she came back with one. It superseded my expectations. I don’t know what I was expecting-it certainly wasn’t what I got. It is ceramic white, has a lot of bling in it and it is…(not going to brand drop). LOL. I love it. I am still in awe of it and being ceramic means it is more delicate than most. Those who have seen it love it too which makes me love it more.
Ah, she got me some other stuff too aside from the watch- shoes, rompers and of course my number one addiction JEWELLERY! Here’s a look-see at some. If she’d got me only the watch, it wouldn’t have mattered.

Ps: I love getting stuff and so far the people I have seen with a white watch excluding myself total to 4.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
