OK, Fine!



I blame Cherrywine for this recent hiatus. She was supposed to be my ginger for the 30days challenge, but seeing as she's awol herself, feel free to bite her.

When I posted the 30days challenge, I wasn't specific about how it was going to unfold, I mean I posted the first one on the 5th of October. I figured that clued you in about how unconventional this would be. Anyway, I didn't take a really good look at that list of prompts and when I posted it but when I actually went through the list, some of them were quite shallow. I mean, do you seriously want to know 5 ways you could win my heart or 5 guys I find attractive? I don't think you are interested in that (or are you? Please let me know). If you've been reading this space for a while, you probably have an idea of d kinda guys I like anyway. Check here and here. And just listing 10 things that make me happy would be too ordinary. We should try to strive for amazing, no?

Ultimately, I think I've kind grown and evolved (OMG I'm getting old!) and I like to write with a little more depth anyway. Don't be fooled though, I'm still goofy. Interestingly, I have been writing a whole lot more, I'm just not uploading them yet. I still have gist for days (You know how drama seems to follow me around). I apparently haven't lost my writing mojo, life has just gotten a little busy is all and I also struggle a with how much to share with you my lovelies without giving too much away yet (Peering (mostly) at all you monitoring spirits over the top of my imaginary glasses. I see you).

I have been working on a project or two which are proving to be, of course interesting, but stressful as well and they have basically been taking most of my time. I'm legit exhausted from chasing resources up and down, but I'm still kicking. My life is also changing and I envisage even more change within the next couple of years. I'm looking forward to all of it, although I'm a little scared. Good scared though. Trusting God for them all. *in Tamar's voice* Won't He do it!

Before I forget, I have picked up some gems from Online Learning. If you're a fan of free online courses, check out Allison, Cousera and Futurelearn. They have some amazing courses and you can learn stuff at your own pace. Futurelearn doesn't shut down even after the course is over so you can always go back for refreshers, interact with other learners and download materials.

On to more important stuff *tongue in cheek* I have been thirsting after wedges recently. I'm usually a flats girl, but for some reason, wedges have been giving me sleepless nights. I'm serious! Check out these beautiful babies. 



Belated birthday gifts are definitely a Yes Yes!

By the way, I love to sleep between two pillows, you know, sandwiched typa stuff. Does that make me uhm, never mind. Moving on. I missed you all and I'll always be back. Maybe I should take Lara's advice and post once a month, then go from there. *tongue out to Atilola and Funmi Reese*

Anyways, I'M BACK! *kisses*

  4. I am totally with you on growing and evolving and I understand becoming too busy to write. I am happy you are still goofy, the realities of adulthood can make one so serious (and boring!) Can't wait to read all the stuff you have in your archive

  7. Shurrup your mouth dia! Why are you calling my name? Lol. It's good to see you back sha. I love the wedges too...as a shortie that hates wearing heels, wedges provide a good balance between height, steadiness and generally being able to walk. I look forward to more posts maám. Let's both be back for real and for good. Deal?

  9. I think that once a month is good, that way you will not be breaking our heart with promises of comeback. I used to love wedges once upon a time but now, I am team flats, I cannot come and kill myself.

    Do have a fab November

  12. This your post is the story of my life

    Maybe when you take the advice to start posting once a month, it would ginger me to do same.
