The Stomach bug

This post is late because its been a week, technically quite a weekend. I’m sitting here typing this knowing that I have to go out later today and upgrade my wardrobe for warm clothes because Nairobi is showing me small small dust. I don’t know how you Nairobi people have been surviving this weather, and allegedly its better than it has been. This weather stresses me out, and not being prepared for it makes it even worse. As I figure out how to put together my wardrobe, let me catch you up on the weekend.

Its that week

There is a trend on YouTube and I think TikTok which is called “being that girl”. The essence of the trend is that there is an ideal girl on social media. the one who wakes up early at 5, takes her vitamins, works out, and takes smoothies. this girl also works from 8-5, be always put together and has a pet…in short the ideal girl who apparently we all want to become. However when you say it’s that week, the implication is a little different…

so this happened

I am back to my seat a lot earlier than i expected mostly because I have a very focused best friend who picked studying over cuddling…weird, right?

A little breather

Its been a real minute since I just penned my thoughts on the blog, and this week after reading Shiro’s blog post I instantly knew that this is the missing piece to the puzzle in my life (ok this and money). So I thought to drop by here while I wait for B to be ready for us to hop in the shower (typical work prep grooming things). Hope you all have been doing well.

7 things I wish I knew

It has been my intention all week to show up and say hello here… But then life has its way of reminding me who is boss. I am learning to take this a lot more graciously given that I haven’t had electricity for about 30 hours now and that just made me lose 1 full day worth of work. I want to be upset but I mostly feel helpless about this whole situation.

A little catch up

I am currently holding my head in my palms in shame…. I haven’t shown up here sufficiently in Quarter 1 and I noticed this because the writing prompts page on my journal is blank. So I am trotting back here in shame and I need to say I am sorry. Work-life balance is an actual scam and i am here to report that I definitely cannot keep up.

Things quarantine taught me

This will probably go up when I am on the road, I will probably be asleep or reading a book seeing that it’s going to take 6hours to finally arrive. You see ever since March when the curfew was announced which drastically cut short a little birthday get away that B and I wanted to have…
