I’ve had an overloaded couple of months . . . Feeling quite drained, yet optimistic that whatever happens now, there are much better things ahead, Inshallah.
Making : time in October to get some well needed R&R. I just must! Cream crackered!
Cooking : up the plans that will make said mini holiday well spent and exciting.
Drinking : more and more coffee although I do wish it was a better brew than the dispenser kind. Yuck!
Reading : Harry Potter and the Cursed Child after reading the entire series again for the 28129841074012th time was bitter sweet. So much learned. So much lost. J. K. Rowling, I love you!
Wanting : my hair to recover and grow again so desperately. Do those protective styles really work? I need to know before I commit.
Looking : better what with my skin not being as bad as it was for most of the year. God is good.
Playing : DOTS!!! Haven’t been this into a game since Candy Crush.
Deciding : to braid my hair a fortnight ago (3rd time in my life) was not so bad, fortunately and I did look cute if I do say so myself. But I was over the do in about 9 days. I’m so fickle. Haha.
Wishing : good health for my beloved. It pains me to see them unwell/hurt.
Enjoying : how pretty Nairobi looks this time of year. Purple everywhere!
Waiting : for my dinner to get here. Famished.
Liking : my new footwear. Got some really cute sandals yesterday and today. Just my type.
Wondering : if I will ever get over meeting Trey Songz in person!!! What a surreal moment in my life!
Loving : the spicy tuna ceviche at Ginza with everything I am and everything I have! My God! Perfection! Haven’t had ceviche that good in years! I’ve been on it all week and I could do more . . . *sluuuuurp*
Pondering : on whether or not I should watch the American presidential debate or just leave it at aaaaaaall the reviews and comments and memes people have been sharing.
Considering : my current levels of exhaustion, sleep deprivation and pressure, I am very proud of myself for not just spontaneously combusting into nothingness.
Buying : things I don’t need instead of saving for things I really want! Wahala!
Watching : more and more re-runs of shows. I may be viewing myself into retrograde haha.
Marvelling : at how fast my nails grow when I polish them and how fast they break when I don’t. Is there a science behind this other than whatever little reinforcement the polish gives? I’ll look into it.
Cringing : at my handwriting. Chicken scratch more like it. I have to ask people to help me make sense of my own notes 😀
Needing : a full night’s sleep.
Questioning : the way a lot of people regard friendship. I’m one of those violently loyal freaks who will ride or die or kill. I cannot understand anything else.
Smelling : oud thanks to my mum.
Wearing : one of my new sandals. My favourite one. I need to get more so that when this one gets worn I will have spares. Yes, that’s how much I love them!
Following : Anthony Cuts (@Anthonycuts) on Instagram and loving his skill! This man knows how to make beautiful hair! Amazed at his work.
Noticing : there’s a lot to ignore J
Knowing : life is short and nothing is guaranteed. 2016 has really drummed this in.
Thinking : about the spicy tuna ceviche. Mmmmm . . .
Admiring : how talented some people in my life are. Mashallah.
Sorting : through my jumbled thoughts to finish this post.
Getting : my fitness regimen back on track on Monday. I promise. Lol.
Bookmarking : nothing and leaving loads of tabs open and slowing my laptop down. Old habits . . .
Coveting : a better body.
Disliking : my rushed morning s that turn into late mornings becaue of sleepless nights.
Opening : yet another tab on the browser 😀
Giggling : and NOT snorting is on my agenda! I will be triumphant!
Feeling : oh so tired.
Helping : people sometimes comes back to bite me in the ass but oh well, such is life.
Hearing : the sweet waves of the ocean soon Inshallah. Crossing all crossables. A Pisces like me belongs by the sea.
