Good people! You know what’s as liberating as releasing a fart after holding it near your crush, it’s taking stock! (I see you judging) In the spirit of accountability, we’ll be doing a segment- taking stock! It’s inspired by Sharon Mundia and Kendi Maudhui. The Keepsakes and Memories Segment is still on! Look out for May towards early next month.
Making: a lot more sense of who I am becoming in terms of making some risky girl boss moves this month. My mantra remains that my will to overcome is greater than the temptation to give up. This means hopefully more YouTube content! I am super ecstatic to move from a place where I have not shown up to celebrate myself.
Cooking: Loads of Kineybwa* (an exotic Ugandan sauce made from groundnuts). But to be honest, I think I am mostly binge eating because I am a tad homesick (the food especially) even after settling back in Nairobi for close to a month.
Drinking: Loads of tea, Chamomile, Masala …Eh Love tea, thank you Kericho Gold, my tea plug.
Reading: Yvonne Owuor’s Dust as well as the recent Writivism Anthropology, Odokonyero where a couple of my talented friends have been featured. Get your copy as soon as yesterday! I hope to share its review soon.
Wanting: more authentic relationships! I am turning the technology off and turning the relationships on!
Eating: chocolate! Haven’t gone a day without a KitKat, After Eight and Cadbury Oreo! I am also accepting weekly presents to add to my stash and any recommendations!
Looking: forward to the possibility of me living like I have everything to gain and nothing to lose and resuming music lessons finally playing the guitar! (Ebilungi bili maaso).
Playing: loads mad chill-hop beats for studying and relaxing sessions.
Deciding: to place the things that bring me peace of mind and soul first! Looking forward to more social media detox because of #mentalslaveryisnotachoice
Wishing: to spill more creative juices to inspire my peers but right before going for a secret weekend gateway to Lamu with you know who! (Trust you read last week’s post)
Enjoying: my solo Zumba workouts! The queen dancer in me is prospering.
Waiting: to stop procrastinating on writing scripts and collaboration proposals and to start driving again after my fast and furious mini accident.
Liking: So many podcasts on self-fulfilling with Lisa Nichols, Bob Goff, Lewis Howes!
Wondering: why the weather won’t stop being romantic and if I can create an app to transfer battery life from our phones.
Loving: the phenomenal woman I am blossoming into! I have stopped paying attention to that voice of the doubt (hat little guy on my left with a shield, clad in red leather suit).
Considering: coloring my hair again maybe a blonde shade!
Watching: This is Us! Repeatedly! Lord bless Jack Pearson, wonder how many men know such a sacrificial love? OH yes, guess who is not going to watch Infinity war; if I do, however, my friends are to blame!
Hoping: to read four books this month, (currently reading two) Care to share book recommendations!
Marveling: at how God is such a Gentleman, the way He keeps opening doors for me even when I give up on me!
Needing: nothing but your continued support as I look to shoot 3-minute poetry videos on my YouTube channel.
Smelling: African vanilla! I am a lover of all things Vanilla.
Wearing: loads of kitenge thanks to Kara Designs.
Knowing: and unknowing what I thought I knew (you feel me!)
Thinking: about you know who
Buying: loads of time to make so many keepsake memories
Getting: hitched or inked soon! In my dreams right!
Bookmarking: my personal growth journey and not necessarily focusing on the goal journey.
Disliking; horrendous Nairobi traffic but I will be fine.
Opening: new chapters of friendships, love, and everything in between
Giggling: Koinange Jeff’s laughter! I have induced laughter! Also, a mental note of a scene that I saw last week in Nakuru, where the bride refused to be kissed by the groom! (my sense of humor is just fine)
Feeling: super duper ecstatic
Snacking: on more chocolate bars
Hearing: the sound of music in my heart! Wow my God, this month is going to be beautiful, I will embrace it all!
I must agree that sharing is sexy, so you don’t know what you’re missing out by not sharing your life update in the comment section below!
