PeeK - a - BoO......


*Warning: Not much of a post, still trying to adjust to real time.

....And so the holiday madness ends and Lagos madness begins in full swing tomorrow, You would think one should be use to this by now, but I tell you just the thought of families with their 5 cars on the road tomorrow morning kills me- one for the father, one for the mother and 3 for their 3 kids in 3 different schools! (Now, can I throw in a suggestion to people like that? Please don't fail to get one for the dogs and another for the cats- I mean how much worse can it get), as if that's not bad enough, NEPA abi PHCN tricked us into getting comfortable a couple of months back with their 12 hour daily shifts, now we're lucky to get 12 hours a week- tired of all the generator noise- In fact, I think I need to relocate- People, any takers? I'm up for adoption!  Blogsville hear it now, it's a once in a life time opportunity, ~Sirius~ up for adoption, going once, going twice, going....(PS: not ready to freeze my butt off though- so Canadians take note)...OR I can aim for a fatter paying job that can afford an apartment in one of those sexy estates- but hey, that won't take the traffic away either, Mchewww!

2009 looks like its about to step into it's J's and sprint to December, so I'm putting mine on first and giving it a head start. Next week Tuesday marks a day in history for the entire world- Obamachukwu in the house. Woo Hoo!!! Jack Bauer and his crew had better be there oh!

Life is looking good amidst all the madness, and I'm happy right now......I think I'll have an achievement award for myself every month, and so for the month of January (even though it's not over yet) I can proudly say that for the first time in my life I have finally learnt how to let things go- by this I mean, I no longer dwell on the "why" questions , ladies you know how hard that is- why did he do this when we were*complete the sentence as the spirit leads you (LoL) and it's amazing how at peace you feel when you accept the fact that you can't change what has already happened,  but you have the power to affect what is yet to happen.......

Be advised :

"Your past is governed by your Memories"

" Your present is governed by your Thoughts"

"Your future is governed by your Imagination"

So do good to your future ........ 

PS: This "HELMET" (hair-melt) issue (A radio personality actually pronounced it that way several times over with all seriousness).......has me cracking up in traffic.  The guy with the paint bucket as his helmet wins my award.....and what's up with the construction workers hat?

Off to do my blog rounds.....I'm happy to see that nobody left, apart from ShaCrown who came running back. LoL (How dare she think she can up and leave).......adios amigos and have a fantastic week!

Therapy said...

I considered adopting you but then I read the ant-Canadian comment, I'm sure UK is just as bad, and with more rain... Lol

For some reason I still insist on not accepting that people are actually wearing buckets. I'm seeing this on like all the Nigerian bloggers posts but I'm still like?!?! Is it sufficient in avading arrest???

Lol anyway... take care x

NigerianDramaQueen said...

I don't know how you Lagosians do it with the traffic! I remember sitting in traffic for hours and hours to go a distance that shouldn't have taken more than 15minutes. Abuja for me anyday!!!
You sarcasm about people getting cars for their dogs and cats was quite hilarious though!!!

Letting things go is major, I know. It's the only way to heal and be whole though...I wish you the best as you continue to let go, and let live!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Nice one.

I thought I was the only one cracking up about the helmet situation. Good luck with the new year.

rethots said...

"...I'm up for adoption!" Really, in that case fill this form.

"Your present is governed...." did you just say i control your present?

"...dwell on the "why"...? how i so detest why?
