A Joyful Day!

Little old me so tired and frazzled!
I had quite the eventful weekend with one of my oldest best friends that took more hard work and planning than it should have.
It took me by surprise when she suggested the do last year. It was quite unexpected. Few people barely remember how good friends you were when kids nor appreciate but not her. From last year’s tentative suggestion and agreement to the actual weekend, it took quite a lot of planning cause of scheduling conflicts on both sides and my health.
At a point, I feared we might never get to but we both had to make a bit of an effort so much so that when I felt 100% better, I asked her for an exact date and time. I felt that if I didn't see her as soon as I could, I might never do.
Everything fell into place and it finally happened. We’ve known each other for give or take twenty years, were best friends in Primary school and would meet randomly at University and chat for a little bit given the time constraints and different studies.
Seeing her after all the years and spending the entire afternoon in her company was such a pleasure. She is so wise and I love the young woman she has become. And you know you are friends when you share career advice and experiences. Most people we call “friends'” never want to share experiences and how they got to where they are but not true friends. True friends have your back and tell it as they see it – which she did. LOL.
We both noted and appreciated how we never out grew each other and the friendship because it happens to so many childhood friends. When adulthood and life hit, the bonds of friendships break and all that's left are memories. With us; the years literary fell away as we found our way to the girls we used to be except as grown ups with mature conversations.
I have such a small number of friends and having one of them be someone who knew me when I was little and remains in my life is not only a blessing but a gift.

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…
