Hello, 2013.



I miss the past New Year’s Eve tradition where my family and I would go out for dinner then catch fireworks to usher in the New Year. Since I have been quietly ushering in the New Year from home for about two years, I guess I am used to it.
This time round was special in its own way despite spending it home. One of my gurls came over to spend the last few hours with me. We watched Michael Jackson’s This Is It then a bit of Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone bad concert. I wasn’t by my lonesome.
How about that, a New freaking Year!! Prior to New Year’s eve, me and my gurls talked quite a lot and I kept asking if they were anxiously anticipating the New Year and all of them gave a resounding NO! I guess we are officially grown up now that we don’t get giddy with excitement over the arrival of a new year. We are past the stage where we expect monumental changes to happen in our lives!
There’s one or two things I would love to happen (if at all they do) this year so I wouldn’t call them resolutions as such.
It would be nice to become financially independent. Yes! I am putting it all out there for God to work his magic while I do what I can too.
I’ve been told on more than one occasion the previous year to find a MAN! LOL. Is this a priority?! I don’t know. Basing on the fact that the last time I were in a tentative relationship was at University, I guess there is need for concern and it isn’t on my side. I’ve been single for too long anyway. Being in the comfort that I am currently enjoying and luxuriating in, it’s going to be hard. However thrilling the chase and flirting are, I hate putting myself out there! I guess I should use this opportunity to sharpen my extremely rusty and previously retired flirtation skills.
Seeing as I've put everything out there, I’d like to wish each and everyone of you all a Happy 2013. May God give you good health, Happiness and all that you ask. To all my friends and family, may the bonds of our friendship strengthen and tighten with each passing year. Amen!
Now that the year is a new and filled with prospects, let’s get to this idea…'start 2013 off with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. On new years eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year.'

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…
