Friday Fives

Thank God It’s Friday … more sore because I am in solidarity with the rest of you who are toiling. However, I can’t quite tell what day of the week it is, because am on leave. Okay enough, don’t envy me much because I have exams. Can’t wait to be done with school though, it’s on top my New Year wishlist (Ps: it’s 24 days remaining). It’s not fun going to class every evening and thinking of school books, assignments and projects every other time. On that note, congratulations to those graduating today.


1. Oopsies!

It’s Christmas time already! Hello, December. Like seriously, it’s unbelievable how time flies. I’m on my second-last semester in school. This is such a blessing.

I’m not one to count days and months but hey  I’ve been dating for a while now *whoop whoop*. Let’s say good relationships are not formed in a day and am lucky to be with someone who really wants to be with me come rain or sunshine and vice versa. To love *cheers*.

My sister finally finished school (O’ Levels), jeez! And with all these school stuff going on, haven’t quite gotten a chance to hang out with her. Congratulations Cla, that’s just the 1st step into independence. You’re still under daddy’s wings and nest…lol. There’s no escaping. I still am.

Our company (Mo DE – Mobile Decisioning) won the inaugural African leg of the IBM Smartcamp contest. How cool is that? Thanks for voting!


2. Weekly Crackers

Is it just me or is the air in the Urban bites package more than the crisps themselves? Remember Krackles as well, same thing. What would happen if they filled up the air bit with crisps? But couldn’t resist getting me some, goes so well with ribena.

3. Faves and Craves

I am at that point in life where I feel like I need some restructuring of sorts. Like I need to re-furnish my house or even get a bigger house. Oh gosh! So I’ve been having this thoughts that I can’t quite put to paper. Looks like I’ll start that change from my couch, slowly by slowly and see how that goes. I really wish we had an IKEA furniture store in Kenya though or does someone know a good carpenter? Maybe we can work something out. I just see their stuff and ogle.

4. Stupendous Snippet

Most of the things that happen in our life are seasonal, especially the ones that we find difficult to deal with. The ones that make you wonder why you have been put in that situation at that time. And in most cases, it gets you to learn something, appreciate something or best yet, know that in life there has to be things that shake you up a bit, more like testing you or give you a challenge. Else, we become complacent.

Truth be told, I hate tough times, but considering that’s how life is, we should always brace ourselves. Also knowing that if we work at it, it always comes to pass and leaves us beaming and glad that we’re over it. No one has it smooth all the way (reminds me of that Embassy advert way back … lol), even the ones that we think have it all sorted out.

5. T.G.I.F Inspiration

True ain’t it? Considering that no one’s perfect, and no one has it all put together. It’s amazing when someone knows you, your flaws and still thinks the world of you. It gives you the morale to even better yourself.


Let me cut myself short now before I bore you… hehe, hope you didn’t agree to that *I see you*. To living, laughing and loving more each day. Have a super weekend.
