Ok, I can’t complain-I have had a very good week. Can’t put my finger on the exact highlights but I know I’m not feeling as worn out as I usually do. I got conned into climbing up 40 floors today..in the name of exercise..and yes, I had to walk back down.Awful..thought about giving up, but these were colleagues so I had to save face. My thighs are going to hurt tomorrow but yet- I want to be fit.lol. Anyway, my boss is still ecstatic about her new boyfriend so all is calm..for now..I find myself praying daily that he does not mess up-Selfish, but necessary..This weekend will be busy so I’m not looking forward to it all-I can’t sleep in and I have to be out and about in the cold..I also have a test to round up my baptism classes so really, maybe I’m looking forward to Monday. On the other hand, it’s the first of December and before this month runs out-I’ll be sun-bathing on the beaches of Lagos Island..lol. So much to do before then though-Its just not easy being a girl.You just have to look good-no excuses. At least, that’s the way I see it. Haven’t really spoken to that many people this week but yesterday I want to Rodizio Rico with my cousin and these two girls I have not seen for two and a half years. If you love meat, you have to try this one out. It’s Brazilian and from one true carnivore to the next, I can safely say that I will not be eating meat for a WHILE. You pay about nineteen pounds and you can feast on all sorts of freshly off0the-grill meat, hot food and salad until you’re worn out. Hmm..nice though..although not good for my I-really-want-to-lose-weight mindset.So three weeks from today, I’ll be packing to jet off on the Sat. after-amazing. I’m so looking forward to this holiday and I can’t help but wonder what 07 has in store for me. I’m bullish as usual because I know God reigns..So no quibbling. I just realised that one of my friends is turning to Islam on account of her boyfriend. I took everything in me not to ask her “what on earth she was doing??” But I said nothing-no point arguing. All I can really do is pray-I just think that citing a “guy” as your reason for jumping ship just doesn’t make sense. But I don’t profess to know it all-and preaching to a girl in love is like…well, you know..If this doesn’t work out-what happens? Just too risky if you ask me..Almost like you’re giving up your ticket to Heaven for a mess of porridge..The things that a girl will do for love? Strange? And we never change..On the same table last night, we got into a “You can’t show a guy how much you like him”conversation.And I just didn’t agree..Why should I pretend when I know how I really feel.? Having said that I’ve had the “ I didn’t commit because you liked me too much” line before and it’s painful. I just believe that its important to treat everyone on a case-by-case basis and everyone deserves at least ONE chance. so fronting and putting my emotions on a leash isn’t a practise that is necessarily down my road. Obviously, I believe that wasting your time with a guy who you’d rather have a relationship with is a no-no but sometimes things aren’t so black and white..Besides, being single is fun and I don’t think I’ll give that up until I feel a conviction-what’s the point otherwise??Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on enough so I’m going to occupy myself in some other more office-friendly way. Lol-Just thought I’d mention. Went unto lastminute.com and on the right, top corner-they have a button labelled “When your boss is watching”-Hilarious-Clicking on it opens up charts and data in a spreadsheet. Perception is everything..Hey?
