Nothingness

I'm sad… I don't know why, I wish I did – but I'm sad – I was thinking maybe it was cos I didn't get this one job I applied for – truth be told, I was wary about it, would have done it if I had gotten but I also never thought it was worth crying over – the job would have required me to be here 4 years and if you don't know, then I'm telling you – me I am going back to my country, this country is not for me – definitely there is a convenience and luxury of being here but this place is not for me – I feel like I'm drying up being here – not like there is anything in naija other than my folks and friends, but my heart is always there – nways that and I'm loving being with the best friend 24/7, we don't always do anything and still we have the best times – needless to say, that's not why I'm sad – so here's hoping that it leaves me soon

So my sister was telling me about some 23yr old boy that is trying to talk to her – me I instantly said no, she said o she doesn't even like him and I was breathing a sigh of relief – my sister is 18 btw – I love to brag about her, cant believe I have never told you all about her – known as bold and beautiful, this is our future lawyer, already in her 3rd yr in lag, she is skinny as shit tho, I so hate her – she is always saying she will readily exchange bodies, lol – but I thank God for her life really, God has been good to her – she is a December baby too – nways I said no to a guy 5yrs older, because truth be told I myself I'm just getting my head wrapped the idea of dating someone 5yrs older – I am not attracted to older guys period, I just don't see the attraction – especially naija guys, they make that generational gap too obvious – besides my 1st boyfriend I think I was 14, it lasted all of 2 weeks – I liked boys and all but my next boyfriend wasn't until I was 20 – so I personally don't think for her 2nd relationship ever, she should be dating someone 5ys older, he works and everything – she is in Unilag so you know the next thing is hearing some people talk trash about her – and maybe cos I waited to date, my brother did, my last born @ 16 hasn't ever dated – my rules on dating are much more different from most people –best friend says I'm being overprotective – I don't think so, I will say the same thing to anyone, its why I hate when 18yr old girls are crying over boys, even @ 20 I want to slap them – but I am different and weird and special, so I'm not judging anyone – I'm just saying – what do you think guys?

Speaking of boys and relationships – can you believe the stores are now all red and pink, talking about valentine day…..twitter crush hates the mere mention of val's day. He just doesn't see why people are talking about it now…I agree with him, I love the movies that come with it, but maybe cos of my lack of relationships – I only remember one vals day ever( Ibadan days) – I couldn't care less, I just think it's another commercialized holiday that they use to make money in America – for any future man in my life, let it be known u will not be gaining points by doing anything special on this day – infact if you want to make me happy, do something like a week before – totally unexpected, genuine and sweet – cos otherwise I just want to watch a movie on that day and like me and the best friend are doing this year– enjoy myself @ the spa

Speaking of as you can tell, I am the most unromantic female eveeerrr and I keep trying to think of what a romantic day will be for me – I think it depends on the season – if it's the winter/spring, then it's easy cos it's a day that involves me going to see either the all star game, the Super bowl or any of the playoffs, Arsenal game in London or Australian Open Tennis Match, preferably where I get to see Andy Roddick or Serena Williams – anything else you do is jara, and I will love you eternally …..Yes I am that easy, add some suya or good steak and let's go shoe/lingerie shopping (I'll pay I don't care) and I will be your slave forever …. Summer season – the only sports will be the US Open (Tennis); the only other thing that will come to mind is travelling somewhere, anywhere and trying something new – like a cooking class or sumn – that's romantic enough right? I am not totally weird – my friend called me an ungirly girl – cos well he asked about moisturizing cream & I didn't know what that meant – isn't cream cream? Abi

Lmao, so my friend sent me this – Enjoy guys –

"Every Feb 14th men get the chance to display their love and affection for the woman in their life but secretly guys feel left out, there's no special holiday for the ladies to show their appreciation for the men in their life now there is. March 20th is now officially steak, blow job, good sex and shut the fuck up day. It's a simple effective and self explanatory holiday. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town just a steak, a blow job, sum good sex and a day where women shut the fuck up. The word is already spreading, but like any new idea, it needs a little push to get the ball rolling so spread the word!"

Lol, that was too funny – nways I am going to the kitchen – black bean sauce for my stir – fry coming up – maybe that will make me feel better – plus I haven't read a novel since I started writing so I'm hoping I can finish one tonight and get over the spell

Muah

Xxxxx

P.S. I LOVE YOU

  1. lol...im 18 and ive never dated..i like older guys...i dont think i can date someone who is not like 3years older than me merely cos i feel that boys around my age are very immature.i like how you are close to your siblings..thats really good..my sisters and i are really close too.
    i dont have a boyfriend and even though i always get gifts from people on valentine's day it really doesnt have any meaning to me since i havent had a boyfriend before.

  2. I personally don't see what's wrong in dating a 23 yr old. 5 years is not so bad and it's an experience for her dating an older man. But u be big sis so you might see things differently.

    I know everyone says vals day is a commercialized day but so is every other holiday so why do people pick on vals day? how bout mothers day?christmas day?etc.

    lol@the joke.

  3. I think vals day is overrrated
    n unfair to guys
    i knw it sounds cliche but everyday shud be vals day
    i appreciate a random gesture during the yr waaaaay more than i do on vals day
    n i think dating an older guy is kool. they r more focused, n ready to settle dwn, statistics show tht guys begin thinking bout marriage at 25 n above, he may not be sooo bad

  10. I get that way.
    And I just cry! Let it out. let the damn thing out. Gosh, I'm so angry atm, sorry.
    But anyway, people that are hating on holidays can like to die in their misery abeg. Not everyone does anything - agreed but some people should keep their opinions to themselves sometimes.
    Im sorry if I sound very rude atm, it's just these things annoy me sometimes.

    sorry about how you feel anyway.
    this morning when i was fine, i started commenting but i had to go and i forgot the nice things i was gonna say but yeah. bye.

  11. oh my goodness. so what i was gonna say was saved.
    lemme copy and paste to cover up for my rudeness up there :)

    I love boys :p
    And my own story with the other sex . uhmmmmm :D

    Anyway, yes people are hating on vals day. Infact I have sooo much to saaaay! People like to hate jare, if everyone led a life of "do what you like let me do what I dislike, we'd be very very fine.


    :/
    bye.

  12. If people expect good stuff from their loved ones everyday then why demonize Feb 14, because it's val's day? Abeg...As for me everyday should be lover's day INCLUDING VALENTINE. And it's my wedding anniversary too, sheesshhh...LOL.

    I think your sis dating a 23 year old guy is not too bad. Just be close to her as usual and give her good pointers.

  13. Random.. random.. random..
    Every one loves a bit of romance. It's just what we like that differs. And yes, lingerie shopping and epic sports games count as well. So stop playing jo..

    You're lucky your sis asks your opinion and it's not just a pic telling you "That's him!"

    Hope you're feeling better? :/

  18. Eeya . . . I feel your pain. Sometimes things around just get us down but then hope you're feeling much better now. You want to return 2 naija ke? Gurl i'll do anything to trade places wt ya. On dating older guys i think i agree wt u that the generational gap is needless . . . although 5 years is considerable. lol @ the March 20 thingy. I can just imagine how crazy the day will be.
