Cupid’s Month!

I’m so glad January finally gave way to February. It was an unreasonably hot month which made me thankful for not being up and about because it’d definitely lead to a serious heat rash. I have weirdly sensitive skin. Any sort of marks whatsoever take forever to go. I’m still sporting band aid (plaster) marks from  6 months back!
Much as I am glad at seeing January go, I can’t help being a little sad. Soon, I’ll be returning to work. I am so used to waking up at my own timetable and lazing about – stuff I’m going to miss however rested I feel. Funny how things work out. Before I took leave, I’d made a mental decision to without knowing the wherewithal of how it was going to happen. All I knew was I needed a break from everything and everyone. And then, voila. I recently read a quote a long the lines of, ‘life has its own way of sorting things out,’ which I find very apt for this. I’m happy it all went well.
So, I managed to get the rest, unfortunately, I am yet to see the one person I really wanted to. So much happened to put that visit on the back burner and I think it is a little late now for she’s probably back to university or going soon. That, was not to happen and I’m Ok with it. Chatting with her for a bit here and there isn’t enough of course but it helps a bit. Nothing beats the feeling of having that one person( or two ) in your family who gets everything you’re about.
The one thing I’m looking forward to where work is concerned is getting dolled up. I miss it. All this time on my hands has turned me into a proper village belle. Cute Shanah wants to let loose. LOL!
Unexpectedly, my phone met with an untimely death. It decided to end its service-span after two worrisome blackouts, revivals and a suspiciously swollen battery. What does someone do when something as unexpected as this happens? I’m that person who can use the same phone for years without an upgrade unless it is forced on me. I loved my BlackBerry, so much so that when my brother suggested an exchange with his N900 before he left, I, without regrets turned down his offer. His N900 had EVERYTHING even Super Mario whom I loved playing so much.
Now, I have to return to using a phone with a poor screen and picture resolution until I scrape enough dollars to buy a Samsung especially one with instagram. I’ve been coveting one for ages but not at the expense of my blackberry. I’ve always been content with it. Sucks that this had to happen right around the beginning of fashion month.
Well…since we are in the month of LOVE, being loveless and all doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the chocolates. Treat yourself and have fun with it. 
Happy Cupid’s Month everyone.

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…
