Friday Fives

Thank God It’s Friday! It’s one of those days that I’m craving for its beauty, but it keeps unleashing it’s not so beautiful side from every corner. Getting the knots in the tum tum but oh well, trying to see it sunny side up. Hope my senses coordinate…lol

1. Oopsies!

School, work and life. That’s just a combination that kicks you real hard in the butt everyday. Let me give you a preview of what goes on in my mind as am randomly walking or sitting. *Crap, I haven’t sent that mail, tested something and I was supposed to give some feedback…we have a presentation tomorrow and assignments are still pending, my thesis is so expectant, have I communicated to the necessary people*. End of day. As in it’s just whisked away before I know it. Sometimes I manage to do what I had thought out to do, then other times, time plays me.

Kitkat, chocolate, Nestle
white or dark?

Some KitKat could easily make you forget the long day you’ve had. Which one do you prefer by the way, white or dark? I’m still torn between the two. Because this one is not the bitter dark (dark chocolate is yuck) and it’s the one I’ve been used to for ages. The KitKat white was a first for me, wasn’t bad though.

2. Weekly Crackers

You’re allowed to judge me as you wish right about now. Yeah, I had ugali for breakfast today.

Left over Ugali decorated with tomatoes to make it look a little more attractive 🙂

End of joke. Sometimes I do these things to either amuse myself or see how people react. What’s wrong with carrying ugali for breakfast anyway? People eat cereal, bread, chapati and the likes. But ugali raises brows. Its raw materials are the same that make corn flakes, that’s my excuse and I stick to it…hehe.

3. Faves and Craves

Got the African Print (a.k.a Kitenge) attire made some time ago all courtesy of Vonette, remember? I now want more. Plus her work has proven to be awesome, even from the people I had referred *whoop whoop*.

How I save some clothes for certain occasions and then I end up never wearing them seeing as am not the type to grace so many occasions. Who else has this habit? It’s about time we dropped it! Wear as you please despite the occasion.

4. Stupendous Snippet

I have a colleague who doesn’t do social media or any of these social sites, actually any sites at all. And no, I don’t mean she started and saw the pros and cons then opted out. She just didn’t get on to the bandwagon. I found that pretty interesting, like wow. Then for a moment there, I thought how my life would be if I wasn’t on any social media site, if I didn’t have a blog, if I was like totally private. Which to some extent I think I am, but of course not downright completely. It’s nice to meet my complete opposite.

Oh, I snapped out of that thought, because this is me. I enjoy this, as long as it doesn’t consume me whole.

5. T.G.I.F Inspiration

Saw this quote in a presentation being done by one of my class mates and thought how cool. I bet it touches on how different people lead, some prefer to research on existing theories, then imitate. Others look at what’s going on, then give orders on what is to be done. Then the others, get into it and experience it themselves.

“There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.” ~ Will Rogers

That’s what we should do in the different areas in our lives. You’re better off peeing on the fence and seeing what happens, than reading, or observing how others are doing their thing. It could be different for your case and in most cases it is. no?

To living, laughing and loving more each day. Have a tamu weekend.

Signing Off ~~~ *Kawi*

  • warero

    You’re pweety.

    • Thanks Warero. Good day!

  • Hey Kawi, I find your snippets always refreshing. Your ugali-for-breakfast got me thinking: any why not? How did we stray from our out authentic (some might say exotic) practices (kwanza left-overs) that were tried and tested by generations of forebears… into the realms of cornflakes. Ugali juu!

    • Terrie, I know right. Was just trying to drag us back to our authentic old ways…I see it somehow worked #TeamUgali lol Thanks for passing by, glad that it’s refreshing. Do have an awesome week 🙂
