I thought about naming this post WHY? But I didn’t have that many questions to back it up.
I was sleeping but I couldn’t get comfortable so I have resorted to writing this since my mind has refused to shut down completely so I can sleep. My mind is overcrowded.
I am not too happy that I can’t seem to settle down enough to study for my ICSA exams.
I am not finding this funny at all. One of the courses is Corporate Financial Management (CFM) it’s driving me nuts! (I am taking the last two having completed the other two, I am self studying).
I don’t like maths. Give me hundreds of pages I am perfectly fine my brain will just keep assimilating but when it comes to calculation my brain just tunes out.
I told my Dad what was happening and can you imagine his reaction? He just started laughing! He reminded me of the war we used to have over all my maths results. And that I should go buy a secondary school maths text book!
When I got over the mild anger at him, I actually bought the text plus a scientific calculator only problem is trying to figure out how to use the dang thing! Or remembering what I used to do with it when I was in secondary school.
It was so annoying trying to explain to the guy at the bookshop the specific topics I wanted in the text. Ratios, square roots, fifth roots, equations, standard deviation etc.
Here’s my WHY dilemma.
Why can’t I understand simple mathematics?
Why didn’t I start to work out the CFM since I got it?
Why do I always do this to myself?
Why do I spend more time thinking about having a boyfriend than actually having one?
Why do I keep buying shoes that I only get to wear maybe once a year?
Why am I never satisfied with just one body spray at a time? (I must have at least 4)
Why do I always buy junk food that I would end up not eating? (My room is littered with shopping bags of all kinds of snacks)
Why am I a compulsive shopperholic?
Why do guys I am not attracted to always ask me out?
Why do my so called male friends always ‘fall in love’ with me and expect me to reciprocate?
Why can’t I even like them a little in that way since they are always basically good guys?
Why do I listen to D’banj’s album back to back everyday? (I am turning into a kokolet!)
Why do I chew gum every morning on my way to work?
Why am I upset about all these questions sef?
Why do I cyber flirt with guys I know I would never date?
Why am I typing this in word doc? (If I go to blogger I would stay up all night reading blogs so I will save it and post tomorrow)
Why am I still here? (Still have questions duh)
Why haven’t I made an entry in my journal in several months? (Blogging has taken over)
I think those are all the whys I want to put down for now. Work is back to its normal boring self. I am good with my boss now. Its 3 more months to the end of NYSC why not spend it just reflecting and chilling?
I can’t wait for the next phase of my life to begin. I don’t even know what I really want to be doing. I want to go and practice a little (I think!) hope I like it and not get stifled in the process.
I still can’t believe all that has happened in the past year. Time really does fly! Why am I even in this reflective mood tonight? I am going back to studying.
On a lighter note, I had one man chase me all the way to my work place this morning. I was coming to work jejely na so this man dey flash him lights and drawing up beside me at every opportunity. I didn’t even notice I was too engrossed in D’banj’s Entertainer album to see him. Finally when I passed the last traffic light to my Office my brain snapped out of the koko world enough to realize that the same car had been following me since I got into Central Area.
It was too late to change directions I was also kinda late so I just braved it and continued on my way to work. I parked outside and he drew up beside me. I know I should have gone on to park inside. The gateman wouldn’t open the gate for the man if I had done so, part of me was also curious to see the ‘bloke’.
I was disappointed. It’s an older guy whom I am sure has a wife somewhere. He is fortyish but very good looking plus I didn’t sight a ring. I know I won’t be fishing in those waters. We got introduced. He didn’t get my number not for lack of trying sha.
What did he do? He showed up at my lunch break asking to take me out. I didn’t go with him o. I had other plans which was going to Chicken Republic to get moinmoin.
Anyways I gave him my official number to save having him come around to the office trying to see me. I don’t have to pick his calls now.
I had whitlow last week! I was supposed to go for a party with Omotee on Saturday. I was wearing open toed shoes so I decided on a pedicure. It was an over-enthusiastic one. When I was done my toes were pink!
I ended up not going for the party sha. So I went to the market instead. It rained heavily while I was there and I knew in my mind that something would go wrong with my foot.
On getting home I washed my legs thoroughly I guess I didn’t do enough. I woke up on Monday to see my right big toe swollen and tender. Apparently I had broken the seal between the skin and nail while doing the pedicure.
I knew trouble had come. So I went to work, googled ‘whitlow’ and found a cure. I was popping antibiotics & vitamin c like it would go out of fashion. I hate taking drugs.
It worked but I had to contend with some limping for a few days and wearing flat sandals to work! Ouch! I was pained o, part of the fun of going to work for me is playing dress up. Anyhoos its all gone now and I am back to normal.
Enough said for today. I am either going to sleep or study! I think this is a long post, if it is Sorry!
