For Seun…

Good morning people!

It’s been a long while since we talked (or since I wrote and you read). Naturally, quite a bit has happened since then…

First of all, remember my writer friend I told you about? Well, he actually won the competition!! So I’d like to thank everyone who voted for him from on here. Your reward is in heaven 😀

And if you didn’t vote, your reward is in the same place as your reward for voting for GEJ into office…

Also, please join me in praising God! My level don change… Once upon a time, there was no difference between me and the people who live under Third Mainland bridge. But brethren, God has now put a roof over my head and delivered me from carpenters. Roof work is done and the wankers are gone!!! Once again, I am free to do naked cartwheels in my living room. There’s still a lot of work to be done in the house, but for now, I’m enjoying the peace and quiet.

Meanwhile, in the past few days, my self-confidence has taken a severe beating on many levels and I’ve been plagued with self-doubt. It started last week when I met a friend for lunch… she was shocked when she saw me. She said she didn’t know I had cut my hair! A few days later, I was outside my house, inspecting the Aluminum work on the roof when another friend called. He asked what I was doing. When I told him, he was shocked (like friend no. 1)…

They both said the same thing; I read about your hair/roof on your blog but I didn’t think you were serious.

????

Then a 3rd friend visited my blog and he didn’t get past the 2nd paragraph before he complained. His exact words were; “How I wan take read all this many many story? Abeg put picture joor!”

I decided to ignore friend no. 3 because the only thing he reads is the expiry date printed on the packet of his herpes medicine. But the others got me thinking… what the hell have I been writing about?? How can you not take me seriously???

You see, when you become a blogger, you start noticing other blogs. You click on every link that ends with ‘blogspot.com’ and you take out time to read each word, even if it’s crap. Some are serious blogs with meaningful content and big important words like “Recriminate” and “Advantageousness”. Those are the blogs that teach life lessons, give out valuable information and broadcast groundbreaking news.

Then some other blogs have gbagauns in their blog title, gbagauns in their content and because of the similarities in the gbagaun patterns, you suspect that the lone anonymous comment in the comment section was written by the blogger himself. You wonder if those bloggers have friends…

I don’t exactly have a niche. I don’t give you news that you didn’t already hear two days ago. I can’t give you gossip cos I will f&@k up royally when I write things like “…an anonymous inside source called Sidney told me that blah blah blah…”

Entertainment is out of the question.                                       

Sports? No.

Art? No.

IT? *bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!* No.

Fashion? No.

Porn? *silence*

Porn? Erm…

PORN? OK no.

*smh*

I also had a bit of erm… *cough*… man trouble… ( ._.)

There’s this guy. I’ve known him for quite a while actually, but yeah there’s this guy. I’m feeling all girly as I write this… and I can’t say too much about it but he’s the sweetest guy ever! He reminds me of all the things I miss about being part of a couple. But right now, it’s all very very complicated and I’m trying to take each day as it comes.

Finally, yesterday, I attended my very last interview. It was two interviews actually… the first one wasn’t so bad. The guy who interviewed me looked like a model for a condom advert. His shirt was so tight I was having trouble focusing. All the chest muscles I learned about in Anatomy class in school, I could see them through his shirt.

It was the 2nd interview that made me decide it would be my very last. There were two of em’- the lady in charge and her Smeagol look-alike partner. Madame was busy on her computer so Smeagol did most of the questioning. He asked why I didn’t finish Medicine, and then asked whether I agree that companies don’t call me back because of my age. Don’t I think I’m too old? Then he also asked what my greatest achievement in life is…

As at that moment, my greatest achievement was being able to stop myself from stabbing him in the eye with my pen. Of course, I didn’t say that.

In the end, he concluded by saying that I had failed to “Wow” them. Me, I’m sitting there thinking, “Well, that’s not what yo’ mama said last night when I gave her the D.”

Sadly, the only ‘D’ I have to give is diarrhea so I kept my answer to myself.

Bottom line is, I’m officially sick and tired of having to prove myself to people and feeling like I’m not worthy of certain things. *sigh!*

We’ll have to finish this off tomorrow. Have a great weekend guys…

  1. Awwww, my poor twinny. I wish I could give you a hug right now.
    Everything will be alright.
    Very soon, all these challenges will be history.
    Xoxoxo

    • Twinnie… I’ll have to manage an e-hug right now. It’s not as good as the real thing but how we go do na? 🙁
      I know it’ll be good soon… but just wish I knew how soon “soon” is!

      xoxo

  2. Interviews can be frustrating, I am also at this stage and I know how crazy and depressing it gets.

    I like your blog and I like how you are never afraid to say it as you feel….I would call it a personal blog.

    • Lol!! From one imperfect naija girl to another, THANK YOU!!! 😉
      Means a lot coming from you…
      As for the interview thing, I. GIVE. UP!

  3. eerrrmmm….. leme wait until u finish up bt something tells me u ve nailed that job. I love “ur greatest achievement at that moment,shows ur crankiness has got self control.lol!
    I most especially love the part of this guy that makes u feel all girl.hmmmmm! Again something tells me a lot goodies will happen at d same time in ur life. best wishes keep my asoebi. After all, m still in shape.

    • Mummy Ejima!!!! Welcome o! My dear, I don’t even want their job again… they can shove it where the sun don’t shine 😉 I had to keep it under control because I felt it was probably a test of my patience or something.
      And erm… about the guy… no goodies o! Like I said, it’s complicated. Still stay in shape sha, anything can happen 😉

  4. Heii… we all go through times when we second guess ourselves cos of the perceptions (or perceived perceptions) of people we meet – close friends n family or inconsequential total strangers.
    The key is to be sure of who you are, or at least be sure that you’re on the path to being YOU, and not ‘society’s’ view of who you should be (caveat, you must also be aware that you’re not all knowing, but still…).
    Stay true to you! why go lame n tame when you can have the adrenalin rush that hits you… there?!
    🙂

    • Wow… I’ve read this 3 times!!!
      Very well said dear… the problem (I think) is I might not be too sure of who I am, and these vultures sense it, and that’s what works against me.
      So I’m getting on the path to being me 😀
      …and lol @ inconsequential total strangers!

      ps- And yes, THIS BLOGPOST IS DEDICATED TO YOU!!!!

  5. You are NGOZI dammit! I doubt there’s anyone who’s totally absolutely sure of who they are 100 percent of the time. Don’t let anyone second guess you, and don’t either. The path to self discovery is a long one, hopefully you’ll have fun along the way, and even get a job while at it.

    • Lol! Babe you vex o… but you gotta agree that there are some people who seem like they got it all together and they are 110% sure of who they are? smh…
      Thanks dear.

  6. New lesson to learn, Interviews go two way.. as they ask u.. make sure u ask them back. don’t give a f#ck what anybody says.. if u kiss their ass.. u lose. The moment u give up is the moment u fail and Ngo is not a failure.
    As for ur guy, YOLO!!
    We all love your blog.. so keep it up

  7. I decided to check out your blog when I saw your comment on sarcastic center…. I love your blog and the content I have read so far is great!!!!! Take care!

    • Awww… thanks dear!
      LOL… I was angry when I made those comments on TSC 😀 but thanks so much for stopping by…
      I’m on yours as well. LOVED the “Why do women cheat?”!! Maybe I need to take some lessons from there 😉
