the first date

hi guys!
its been a minute hasn't it? My life has been mad hectic with my boss assigning more responsibilities all in a bid  to develop me career wise. i am very grateful to him for this, because it shows he has more confidence in me than i have in myself. Anyway i welcome the challenge. Apart from work,school has resumed and that does not help matters but in the midst of this gloominess i found a reason to smile. I managed by Gods grace to ace my exams i wrote in December last year for my professional qualifications. I can safely say that career wise, i am moving along, not as fast as i would like, but moving at least.

Now to the more interesting aspect of every young woman, my love life. I managed to squeeze in time to go on a couple of dates. The latest one was quite nice actually. I got the usual butterflies and nervousness because it was a blind date. I did not know if the guy would turn out to be a flop like the other ones and frankly at the same time i was a bit excited. He had a very sexy voice on the phone and sounded posh. I was nervous that the posh voice might be emanating from a walking baboon. Anyway in the looks department, he wasn't bad. he was tall and seemed gentle manly and in my estimation he seemed nice. we had quite a bit of laughs and i had to restrain myself from launching into full scale interrogation mode. he dropped me of at home at a decent time with a hug, no going in for the kill from this one. went down hill.

i know i may have some unrealistic expectations and believe me, am working on that. But i can say that his behavior from then to now, has been Luke warm at best. At first i was a bit worried, then angry, then indifferent. I think i was on my best behavior on the date and i do not know what else a girl is supposed to do. what was all the fuss about,thinking of what to wear and what to say and not to say. what are men looking for exactly? should i have been more coy and mysterious? more funny? flashed a bit more flesh?laughed less?

i think am off dating for a while......will keep you posted. till later folks.

when nothing goes right( by the way its Valentine)

hi guys!

Its me again and am here to go on and on about the life of a young lady in the cosmopolitan City of Las Gidi. in the past two weeks it seems that NOTHING is going right for me. I know that's a depressing thought and you are probably thinking that here she goes again but on a serious note am thinking ' when is a girl going to get a break. One thing i have noticed is as bad as it has gotten, i am yet to shed one single tear ( should i call it maturity or the fact that my tears have dried up).

its valentine around the corner and as i mentioned earlier i wish we could fast forward the event all together. i know its going to be one of those days. at least i know i will have fun at the office, am on the planning committee for the valentine groove and am bound to receive a card at least. Anyway for those looking forward to a wonderful valentine's day, more power to you. am hoping to hear about all the fantabulous gifts my girl friends are going to get and am looking  forward to feasting on free cake and chocolates. but a note of warning: please bear in mind that times are hard and there have been a lot of setbacks in this new year. do not expect heaven and earth, its better to expect less than let your expectations not be met and then you deny him sex or break up with him all together and if he is a toaster ' kick him to the curb' so fast, his head spins. please do not buy him boxers and wine and expect an IPAD or BlackBerry Phone,its not just fair! we scream for equality all the time. so happy valentine's day y'all and please practice safe sex!

till later.....

its your girl.

hi guys,

happy new month! the new year is moving along and i must say it has already been an eventful one at that. as usual my life is always anything but boring. in the space of one month to be precise not only have i met a guy but that same guy has cheerfully broken my heart ( what else is new). the work load has also been mad crazy,its like we are making up for the one week we were at home for that legendary strike. speaking of strikes, ASUU has finally called their's of, am so happy for all the students but at the same time i feel for the lecturers. they do so much for us and get rewarded so little.

anyway its February and we all know what February  is about ( rolling my eyes) its that month that guys start keeping their distance and girls start giving you the green light in the hopes of getting a valentine's gift. Maybe because i have been down and out when it comes to romance but i await Valentine's day with disdain.

Anyway lets see how it goes.
