Birthday month! Birthday month! Birthday month! It’s actually not as exciting as it’s always been; perhaps I’m actually maturing? My birthday is on the 18th and all I can think of is the fact that I haven’t been able to achieve what I’d hoped to at this point in my life… Speaking of unachieved goals, I have a pile of those. Maybe that’s what’s been dragging me down these past few days. September was a unique month. Extremely unique, that I remember having a good long cry at one point, which REALLY helped. It was overdue. It all just came out one night, after I’d been over-thinking -a flood of endless tears from my eyes and nose. Ugghhh! I had swollen eyes the next morning, but felt great…great to cry about the things I can’t change, hope for but don’t have, plans not going according to plan, everything! Now that I think about it, it’s rather silly, but it felt good to sort of unleash the load of unresolved/hard-to-explain emotions. #solongsombreseptember Welcome October 🙂
My goal this month is to appreciate my friends. I feel like I’ve gotten so busy with work, that we hardly connect anymore.
Making (much-needed): plans to meet the girls on Saturday
Cooking Eating: a bowl of corn flakes
Drinking: my second glass of Agashya passion juice (thank you Bella and Jack)
Reading: presentations from a just concluded symposium on vocational pedagogy I had the pleasure of organising, with an amazing team, at Kyambogo University where we also launched our Lego Education Center.
Wanting: a long chilled weekend filled with pampering, massages and epic sceneries. I don’t ask for much…
Looking: at pictures from my cousin’s wedding last weekend and can’t believe the day came and was over so soon; she had a beautiful wedding where close family came together and I was reminded for a brief second that maybe this love-thing will happen for all us! Lol! Also that lavender is such a pretty colour and that Zimbabwe should be my next destination to visit
Deciding: that braiding my hair was a wise decision
Wishing: all my birthday wishes would come true (I have 5 wishes, that I need to someday turn into reality)
Enjoying: this Smile 4G mifi I got yesterday, which means my free & fast wifi-hunt days could be over (ha ha! Never…)
Waiting: to see how all this plays out
Liking: the sweet discovery that my blog was nominated as Best Writer/Blogger Of The Year for the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards
Wondering: if my friends miss me as much as I do or if we’re all just getting busier with our own routines
Loving: that I’m learning to be more independent and in control of my life
Pondering: why I just haven’t had the inspiration to write these past few days…hiatus!
Watching: an episode of Empire, then Blackish and Modern family in that exact order
Hoping: to get better at Photoshop and some other cool apps with time and lots of practice
Marvelling: at another amazing sunset
Following: an interesting talk show about opinions on Co-habiting by couples in Africa
Noticing: I haven’t been reading & writing as much as I need to in my notepads.
Knowing: I need to come up with a clear financial plan sooner than later!
Snacking: on an apple
Have a spectacular work-week,
