Confessions, Confessions, Confessions

It's Fridayyyy. Let me start the weekend right by confessing the following confessions.

I confess that:

1. The only reason why some people are still on my FaceBook friends list is JUST so that I can look at their interesting photo albums. Finito. Don't side eye me, you know you are guilty of that too.

2. I enjoy seeing people hooking up/meeting new new/talking to new dudes. It's a generally cute thing about the newness of relationships, flings and things.

3. I don't think that one is too old to make friends. Sometimes even at the age of 40, you may meet someone and it will be an instant connection.

4. I still don't know how to deal with what I think are the complexities in individuals and so my best strategy is usually to retreat and chill in my little corner. I think it works (for me at least).

5. I've been on this 'self destructive' diet plan where I have refused to drink H20 for the past 2 months or so. Like seriously, I can't remember the last time I drank water. I have also insisted on eating the fattiest and unhealthiest foods available. I drink like 2 cans of soda a day, I eat dunkin donuts croissants and muffins for breakfast and mega calorie steez for lunch/dinner and I have definitely gained a whopping 10lbs. *munches a pecan brownie as I type*
I was talking to my friend the other day, while I pulled up to the Wendy's drive through and she got on me about my so-called plan to bring sexy back (which sooo fell off effective Aug 2009) to which I responded that 'I will be back with a bang'. Trust me, I will. Hahahaha...I usually have my 'on the grind' and 'slacker' moments. Slacker mode is in full effect and I am enjoying it o jare.
a. It's winter time, aint no one seeing my frame underneath all these winter coats and scarves. Besides I need some extra fat to stay warm.
b. No boo to entice with a sexy 6 pack. *chortles*
c. I just feel like stuffing my face dammit.
Check back in a few months sha. :-D

6. Blood is NOT always thicker than water. Family is NOT always the set of people who have your best interests at heart. It is what it is...

7. I'm past the stage of expecting my friends to share a good % of the things that go on in their lives with me. In fact, I don't ask anymore. If you want to share, feel free. If not, no wahala. However, I do expect to be at least kept in the basic loop. How does one get engaged and you find out like 5 months later? Best believe that I would NOT be attending that wedding, if it was me.

8. I have not been to church in 2.5 months. Partly due to some out of town kind of commitments and partly due to a case of 'I just didn't feel like it'. I did mention something about an on and off relationship with the main G abi?
I will say though that I am in constant amazement of his infinite mercies and his grace. Even if I never enter church in a minute, I still try to speak to him as often as I can and I thank him because really, who I be??? I do not deserve anything, absolutely nada!

9. I have this friend who I have the most heelarious/interesting/random and off the wall Gchat conversations with. If anyone ever hacked into our accounts, they would be like WTH at some of our convos. Sometimes I re-read just for the heck of it and crack up, great blackmail material indeed. Ha!

10. I tend to let things roll off my back. I can't say that my life in general has been brilliant and oh so wonderful but I think that thanks to my outlook on life, I make it brilliant by force, LOL. I did a post on happiness a while back and commented on how in general, I'm like a happy kid (thanks to the simple things in life), but somewhere in my being I keep thinking that c'mon, it's not normal to feel this content and at peace, like the G-O-D is going to spring one nice one on me to test me. Hmmmm...
BUT till then, I will keep on trucking and loving my life as I see it, imperfections and all.

How una dey? I greet oooo.
I hope you lot have a very fantabulous weekend. I am supposed to be seeing Nneka in concert but why do I just wanna sleep all weekend through??? I actually went to bed at 9.30 last night. *blank stare*...na so e dey start!

Peace & Love.

i cosign number 1. Some folks ar emy friends on Fb cos I want to know contacts' color the london babes are using, who is hooking up with who in awkward places at cov uni and which parties are going down in abj. all these amongst other constructive curiosities, ha!

ur friends are the relatives you choose for yourself. some fam members are more of a burden to you. some friends are ur gurading angels. sometimes, blood's supposed-thickness than water may work for you.

Myne Whitman said...

I agree with a lot of the stuff you wrote. I am also giving you side eye and blank stare, LOL.

Seriously, apart from getting fat, some of those things are bad for you generally.

I'm a happy trucker like you, wasn't always but got into the groove when I got closer to the main G and I've been loving it.

Enjoy your weekend dear.

Tatababe said...

I totally feel you on # 1 & 10 especially. I went through that phase of drinking anything but water too! How body nah?

David.фаворит Бога номер-один said...

LOL!!! I agree with some of the things...and how have you been?

Besides, I'm really freezing oh! and we are having snow storm number two or is it three?

I need that warmth sharply and you better start thinking of enticing me...LOL!
**kisses**

iphyigbogurl said...

KAI!!facebook!...i do that too!!...keep people as friends just so i can kno their business....lol..but i'm quick to delete morrasuckas mehn..if i dont want u knowing my bizness and ur bizness doesnt interest me..i'll delete ur ass!!!!

nice read.
i have been hearing about this Nneka babe..will check her out.

Azazel said...

I feel u @ 6,4 and 7.. Infact I feel it so much that am going to steal it buddy..

webround said...

lol@ no 1. some other female friends have expressed the same opinion to me.

@ur going off diet - 4get the theory that under all the bundling, nobody is there to see ur shape. just imagine that your xmas holiday will be spent in miami, that should pull you out of the current slacker mode. anyway, u said u're getting enough exercise from having to commute to work now.

enjoy the weekend

akaBagucci said...

Hmmm.....My sister said that unusual cravings (#5) and 'excessive' sleep are signs of the preggers....... get tested.. lol..

on a more serious note.. I agree with most of your points though.. except that people often try to take advantage of one if they realize you'll just back off...

enjoy the sleep/ concert o!

leggy said...

i drink water a wholeeeeeee lot,my friends complain.and i do agree and cosign with this apart from the water ish.you gotta drink water.if it were in nigeria, i wonder where you'd be getting all those sodas from with it costing you an arm.lmao

TinTin said...

aunty!!! wetin dey happen!!
i'm feeling u one 98% of the stuff jorr!!

L-VII said...

Damn, my FB friends list is boring! Wish I could see some interesting pictures.

I don't ask questions either, but 'i like to listen, if one if my friends wants to vent, I am all ears.

I know for sure that blood is not thicker than water, after all the shyt I have been through with so called family members.

Anyways, go see Nneka and have a good weekend.

Lady X said...

I'm guilty of 1 lmao! Gist is juicy now! It's SO cute when people are in love. Instead of getting jealous I actually feel all warm and mushy! 3 is on point! My sis met this lady recently who is like 40-something with 2 grown up children. A very nice lady. I think she's learning a lot from her. Hmm 4 I just switch off and retreat into my shell. Ooh there are just some days you just want to stuff your face, your tummy everything! But when I do that I have to be careful cuz I'm one of those people that put on weight really fast. 6 Gosh SO true! I know these two sisters that act like they hate each other! They are always arguing and making each other look bad it's embarrassing! 7...Uh 5 months later! Really? 8. But I don't think you have to go to church to pray right? 9. I have a friend that I think if anyone read our conversations they wouldn't have a clue what we're talking about cuz sometimes even we have no idea what we're talking about but we still laugh like fools lol 10. Let's call it the 'take it as it is' outlook on life shall we?

bob-ij said...

Haha @ stuffing your face. After my mad diet for halloween and the costume ended up being loose... I went right back into my unhealthiness. So bad! And I don't think there's anyone I tell 100% what's going on with me! Like no one in the world.. and I reckon there are pple like me.. different pple only need to know a certain amt of things!

as for be at 9:30, I want to start the early thing.. but my canadian connections mean I have to be up late into the night *sigh*

x!

simeone said...

ah..pls drink water abeg..
..i need to get fat too o..u didnt mention if your approach has yeilded positive results..

histreasure said...

i am in love and so totally in love with the idea of love.i'm someone that'll always ask..'so how did u guys meet'.

i co-sign on lot of what u wrote except i'm really trying to drink more water but i'm that happy person that knows she'll definitely get to where she has to be,no too much anxiety..Bros G de lookout for moi.

Nice Anon said...

lol@ don't side eye you.
Drink water inula. It is good for you.
Have a great weekend.

Fierce said...

totally feeling you on... ok everything... except the soda thing, I'm going green (diet wise)... what me and Nee-san term 'canary food' where I eat like... you guessed it... a canary... But everything else, we're on the same page
abeg, gist is sweet mehn... lol

Anya P said...

LOL...madam, what are you thinking stuffing your face like that?! Oya halele...carry yourself to the gym today. and yes, it's by force! *in my mummy-doctor voice* that destructive diet is so unhealthy, do you have any idea what that is doing to your heart??!

I feel you on not gone to church in a bit. I've slacked off major this past month. but getting back on the program asap...maybe tomorrow sef.

and yes, i'm all for the newness of flings/things/flirtations... all that jazz. I love to see it, i love to instigate it, i love to be a part of it.

Reverence said...

baby!

they say water is good for the skin. abi you don't want fresh skin?

i am so with you on #4.. i dont have power jare

btw..sorry about yesterday.. i dropped my phone. gist to be continued later

olu said...

1. I dey over guilty sef! Hey, I've got to be in the know.

2. Healthy eating is not my thing, so go figure. Thank God for Flagyl, Talazole and Tetracycline. *hides face*

3. I don't put much hope on both, so I wouldn't know.

8. I go pretty often, but I don't get the point when all you hear is some self-righteous stuff about what 'other churches' are doing wrong *rolls eyes* and the 'notice-me-or-I-die' people (the distracters) who it takes the entire duration of the creed (which is like 5 minutes) to find a 'convenient' seat. 'They must see my Ferragamo.' Puhleeze! I notice ish like that in church. I know, I know!

Nice one, Mgbeks! I enjoy am.

UnderCover07 said...

I agree wiv a lot of points u mde o jare...I add some ppl jst to see their pics. And blood isn't always thicker than water...but God dey sha.

Ebony~!* said...

Sankofa said...

I agree with you about the whole family thing. Some of them do NOT always have your best interests at heart. Happiness is a gift- enjoy it!

Harry-Rami Itie said...

I love 5 and 10...family are not always 2 b trusted and i think it is cool that you are a happy kid!!!

chayoma said...

Repressed One said...

You're prob right about #3...it just seem so sometimes.

lol@ 5...You know what, I can truly believe when you say 'I will be back with a bang.' Shebi we were all here when you were seriously on your work out grind, drinks tons of water, having fresh skin and all lol...so no wahala. When Mgbeks is ready, she'll bring it all back.

Hope you had a fantabulous weekend, dear.

miss.fab said...

Lol O.M., you are getting old my dear. Pass me that brownie this instant!!!

Cosign on #1, 2 & 3. #7 is so trifling, and yes, I'm beginning to get past that stage too.

Hope you're having a good weekend. ^_^

Enkay said...

I drink water only because the doctor says it's healthy. I don't know why I just don't like water! Can you imagine?

Facebook and her many evils. lol!
There are people I should 'de-friend' but I just haven't got the galls to do it yet.

Confessions, surely good for the soul huh?

Writefreak said...

Woman, start drinking water!!! Na command, no be advice o! lol
Fb is just funny isn't it? I would love to read your gtalk chats..lol..how can i hack into your account? :-)

Deji D said...

Madam you want to wound abi? If you won't drink water then get attach 2 bags of drip to ya hand and keep it moving :)

U de fear say u go burst into flames if you step into church? lol

I used to have stacks of saved convos that could be blackmail material too but i lost all of them when i switched laptops. Thanks for opening a wound that took forever to heal :(

Olufunke said...

Nneka is pretty good ...I love her raw style and her afrocentic-ness

"I don't think that one is too old to make friends. Sometimes even at the age of 40, you may meet someone and it will be an instant connection." I totally agree with you on that.
