The Male Habit!

I’ve been through a few extremely annoying situations with people of the opposite sex recently and I have had it! It’s reached that point where I either talk about it or let it fester.
Let a man know it is a female waiting for him and he’ll be as late as he can possibly be! Poor time management/time keeping is one of my biggest pet peeves and people who don’t value others time piss me off. My time is just as important as yours. Not so long ago I had to wait for some chap for two hours and when deigned to grace me with his presence, he was not only ill prepared but unrepentant! I was full to bursting with anger! I usually tell people off but held back for this person, it was a wonder how I managed to rein in the tyrant in me.
Pay him a compliment and he thinks you want him sexually. Really? Self help books have it as a good idea to pay people compliments because it buoys someone’s confidence. Well, most boys I have come across automatically think you have designs of a sexual nature toward them all because of appreciating the colour of their tie, the fit of their pants and general appearance. Can I not appreciate something I like about you without the sexual connotations? We girls get complimented by every random Tom, Dick and Harry but we never think it as a come on.
The ‘buddy’ business. How I have come to loathe the word. One thing I have been noticing when chatting with boys is their never ending use of the word! The word is literary dropped after every other sentence. It would be so amusing if it weren't pretty annoying. Excuse me, I know we are friends. How? Because I let you talk to me about your girlfriend and relationship issues! If I were not a ‘buddy’ you would have no excuse to burden me with that baggage! The only person you’re trying to convince that we are friends and nothing else is yourself otherwise why the need to pepper the chats with the word/
And then you wonder why I take breaks from Whatsapp.

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…
