For the lack of juice in my fridge and because as of now, I am a broke-ass student, I decided to drink the Monster Energy drink that I have been housing for the past 1.5months. I am still up and running and it is almost 4am so my guess is that it is going to be a looong night so I might as well make up for my blogging inconsistency (or at least try..
I had just 3 finals to write…yay!!! And what’s more, I got one down already…two more to go..:D. The convenience store in my yeye school has refused to restock since we are at the end of the academic year (which makes sense though I am salty because) that means no Ben and Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup or Oreo Cookie milkshake for me for the rest of the semester.
I have this Oyinbo (boy) who takes/soon-to-be-took 3 of my four classes with me, was my project partner in one of the classes, sits in front of me in another of the class and has his name right before mine in the roster for all the 3 classes. Needless to say we were around each other for one too many hours this semester and I almost feel like I am double dating. *smirk*. It has been a remarkable experience, you know, with the mental flirting and all *covers face in shame*. And then he is a boy/man in uniform…..marine corps….#ha-holy-spirit-take-control-of-this-temptation#. It is funny because he is definitely not my spec. we
Well, now I can easily imagine the other side of that too. Uhm, never say never. Fret not people, it is just a harmless acquaintanceship and I have come to certain realizations too. There are a couple of things about YY that I have been taking for granted. Choi! I have told my Oyinbo friend several times over that I would be pushed to behead him on several occasions if I were ever to date him. Good enough, it is a consensus since his favorite phrase to me is “You make me wanna kill myself”. To which I reply, “Oh, be my guest since it is just a case of suicide. If it were homicide, then, we’ll have a problem”. All in all, it has been a wonderful experience and a learning process because neither of us had had that kind of close relationship with the other race before. I am almost sad to see it dying because……
I am thinking of going to China next semester for an internship. I am excited about the prospect but still a bit terrified because I have never made such move in my whole life. Relocating to the US, I was with my family. So this is very different and a bit “Jesos Chlist”. However, I am looking forward to the sights and sounds and hopefully, I will have so much issues with the food that I will lose about 50 pounds..:). In other words, I am hoping that with the China trip comes the perk of “Bringing Sexy Back”. The program is soo expensive, chei! I know Baba God gat my back sha, though donations and goodwill are welcome. Paypal, money order, western union, every every.
Uhm, what else is to be said o?!!!!
Ehenehn!!! I got sad at some point last week because a “friend” lost her brother. I use “friend” loosely because really, I don’t know much about her, we just attended the same high school. I was very sad and cried out in frustration because the boy was only 24. You can then only imagine my “shall-I –say-more sadness?” when I got to know that he was a sickler (someone with sickle cell anaemia). I know that people die for other reasons too but this particular reason got me thinking.
Sons and daughters of Adam and Eve, why why why do you do these things?
The world is evolving and so should you. Be enlightened and knowledgeable for Christ’s sake. Don’t misunderstand me. My point is this, there is love and there is love. Knowing each other’s medical status is imperative in a budding relationship. I believe in miracles but not in taking extremely selfish risks. So you know you are both AS, right? And you also know that this means you stand a chance of having a child with sickle cell should you copulate, right? But you believe God will turn things around for you so you go ahead and reproduce anyway. This is what I have to say to you, you are being extremely selfish and unfair!
The pain associated with this disease is ugh…Check this out. I know you as the parent will share in it but how about the poor child experiencing it first hand? I understand that this is a sensitive topic but remember that I am referring only to those who do this with prior knowledge (though ignorance is no longer a tenable excuse).
The short of the last "epistical" paragraph is this:
I think I am ready for the darts you might be throwing my way for this reason, so, don’t hold back. Till next time…..
