Ask me anything

That awkward moment when someone named !$%@@&! tries to hit you up!

prov·i·dence

[prov-i-duhns] 
noun
1.
( often initial capital letter ) the foreseeing care and guidance of God or nature over the creatures of the earth.
Last I checked, Providence either defined the care and guidance of God or the capital of Rhode Island. Yay :-|
Buuut at the NYSC camp, Providence was the not-so-smart guy that tried to talk to me…. *sigh* yes his name was Providence… :(
Providence was in my Platoon….yay me? He walked up to me on a beautiful morning and the following conversation ensued:
P: (in the most annoying voice EVER!) “hi there, morning.”
Me: “hey”
P: “Do you remember me?”
Me: (with my straightest face ever): “should I be remembering you?”
(Providence looks heart broken and at this point I am hoping that he will give up but like the brave man he is, he goes on)
P: “I was in front of you at the registration line” (Mind you, registration was almost two weeks ago)
Me: (pretending like I remembered Mr.P) “ohhhhh heyyyyy :-| hope you’re fine?”
P: “yea, I am doing great, I go by the name Providence”
Me: “what?”
P: “Providence, my name is Providence, may I know yours?”
The rest of the conversation went something like this:
P: “I have been noticing you since and I said let me talk to you”
Me:
At the end of this very painful conversation…Providence tries to get my number and when I said no, he gave me the death look… *sigh*
I am guessing Providence sounds nicer as a name in Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa?? Hopefully?? I just couldn’t get over it. I understand that parents have a lot of emotions when that child pops out but PLEASE do NOT make him/her regret your decision years later…
I saw Providence right before camp ended but he avoided me like a plague… I was happy :)

Start over

Lets start over and stop fighting over the same old things

Its so hard to leave the past behind and decide to keep moving with your life

but it feels so good when you are determined to change

“It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.

Beauty

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” 

who can say where the road goes

ink

i had always wanted to get a tattoo

my mama said, “don’t get a butterfly or one of those things just cause”

my papa would faint but i said “fuck it” and got one anyways

thinking about what to get as a first tattoo was mind-boggling

all i could think was “get something that relates to your mom and two sisters”

they are the people i live for :)

so i got this

i live by faith, when i look at this i think about the 3 pillars of my life

i love it!

i was up so high

:) love and strength

5.11am

awake…i am super tired but i cannot sleep

ever felt like your heart isn’t just at rest?

i cry so easily it is so annoying

then again.. that ‘don’t let me fall video’ activates my waterworks like no other

sometimes i feel like its ok to depend on some people for support

i don’t know how to

5.12am

bye

because i can..
