Hope you guys are doing great. Today started out so sloooow… I got to work and for the first few hours, absolutely nothing was happening. This new role of mine is so very different from my last role where Monday mornings were always chaotic. Today, I spent close to an hour taking selfies in the bathroom. I really liked the selfies so I did what my boss always asks us to do- I went the extra mile and took proactive steps and got one of the cleaners to help me take full-length pictures of me in my new dress… I threatened to fire him if he didn’t.
Turns out that he’s a pro… there was no need to threaten him because the guy takes pictures for a lotta girls in the office. When I told him to help me, he asked, “Ahn ahn… Ngozi, since when did you join them?”
My phone is bad and I don’t know if it can be fixed 🙁 Almost 3 weeks ago, it just packed up one day and died… so you guys can imagine all the stuff I’ve lost. I don’t have anyone’s number anymore, except the numbers I’ve always had in my head. And I’m one of those people who keep text messages and chats so it’s painful that I have lost messages from as far back as early last year. I had so many romantic messages from former toasters that I could’ve used to easily destroy their future political careers… I just thank God that all my pictures and porn clips are saved in my memory card and my memory card is fine 😉
Meanwhile, I didn’t tell you guys it was my birthday on the 1st of July… ( ._.)
It fell smack in the middle of my depressed phase. I planned to put up a blog post that morning because talking to you guys always ALWAYS leaves me feeling better. I was going to list 32 things I’m grateful for… and I chose 32 because that’s how old I am, but that day came and went and I had nothing to say.
I wasted the day because I had assumed that someone else had made plans. Yes, now I admit that it was very very stupid of me to make that kind of assumption, but it was because he (the someone else) had asked me several times what my plans were for my birthday. Even after I told him I had none, he still asked. Then on that day, he wanted to know exactly where I was at every point in time… Let me know when you get to the office… Where are you now?… Are you leaving the office? How long will you be gone for?… Are you home yet?… After all that, was it wrong for me to have assumed?
Anyway, that’s how it went till my day finished and nothing spectacular happened. I got 20 questions and nothing more. I was still new in Recruitment then and the work load was light, so apart from the fact that I was looking extra nice, it was a normal day like every other. It rained heavily that day so there was demonic traffic on my way home and I didn’t get home till very late. By that time, my friend who came to see me had gone home. I learned a very big lesson that day.
Two days later, to the glory of God, my phone died and I have had peace since then. Peace because the death of my phone brought about the end of all my secret friendships…
Did you ask, “What is a secret friendship?”
Well, I’ll tell you what it is… a secret friendship is one in which you and the person chat all the time on Whatsapp or BBM or whatever chatting mechanism people use these days. You keep up with each other’s lives, down to the tiniest details and yet, you are not friends in real life. You don’t go anywhere together, you’re never seen together, you don’t even see each other, but the person takes up so much of your time. He or she has a real life that you are not part of… their friends and family don’t even know you exist :’(
Who needs that kind of wahala?
Anyway, I’ve decided I’m going to fix another birthday for myself to make up for this very annoying one… I’ll pick a new date (probably sometime after I get paid for the month) and do something nice and small. I will also put up the 32 things I’m grateful for on my new birthday. I’ll let you guys know the date when I decide.
And I would like to thank everyone who sent a birthday message on Facebook… I didn’t see all the messages till the next day :’( and it was too bad because that woulda really made my day. Thank you guys so much!
Here are pictures of my new dress 😀
Have a lovely week!
ps- I didn’t really have anything to say… just wanted to show you my dress ( ._.)
