Nairobi Life *sigh*

29 Apr

I am super pissed right now 😠😠😠

Okay I was super pissed about five minutes ago and after finally hearing the driver’s explanation, am cool now. So here’s the thing:

Every single day I leave the house at 7:00 am so that I get to work early and do my preparations. Today I decide to leave an hour early so that I get a bus in time. I have no issue with matatus (buses) from Kasarani (my home) to town. I work in BuruBuru. Now that’s where the problem comes in. Usually all passengers make a queue to board the buses and there’s usually like five queues for different routes. Sometimes it takes me a whole hour standing on the queue. Well today it took me TWO WHOLE HOURS. Been standing in the cold in town on a queue wearing a short dress and freezing the entire time.

It started with the water. The water heater isn’t working and about an hour before I chuck the house, the gas runs out 😫. I am forced to take a quick cold shower. I hate cold water. I am afraid of cold water. I skip having my dinner because I wanna make it in time to town. I get to town okay but standing on the queue for two hours isn’t fun at all. Plus it’s the only day, the only single day I decide to wear a dress. Talk about freezing. By the way the weather in Nairobi town is so unpredictable it can rain anytime and am just not the umbrella carrying kinda person because I love small handbags. Now where will the umbrella fit? 😓

I know you are wondering why I never board the minibuses. Have you seen the matatus to BuruBuru. Loud blaring music – which to some extent is annoying, overspeeding… I just can’t deal. I love ‘Double M’ or the ‘CommuterTrain’ if you may because A. They are super super comfortable and B. I know the buses are driven by well trained drivers.

So the buses carry passengers from different routes by turn. I mean, the first bus that comes stops at the first queue, the second bus at the second and so on. So after waiting for our turn the driver stops at the wrong queue. That is when I knew I wasn’t the only pissed person there. Talk about cursing out loud lol. Getting into the bus, I take a seat near the driver. He starts explaining how the traffic was. I am seriously thinking of buying a moyor cycle with my first salary :roll:😂😂😂. Pink to be precise so that I can stand out in traffic lol. Relieved I take out my phone and earphones. Music. New anthem –> Ojuelegba by Wizkid 🎵

So it’s all sorted out and within no time we are on our way. Just before leaving town the guy sitting next to me warns me about my phone. Stealing is common in Nairobi but these thieves are taking it a notch higher. Snatching phones from passengers inside buses. It has happened to me before. I remember I was so mad/annoyed I literally fell sick lol. My phone means so much to me. Fearing I might lose this one too, I keep it away till we are out of town and away from traffic. Ojuelegba in replay mode since I left town.

I am hungry. Wish I took my supper. But I guess i’ll drink coffe and maybe a muffin.

Lesson learnt. From today henceforth I am leaving the house at 8. That’s settled. Already here. About to alight. The driver is so friendly. Wishes me a lovely evening.

Another evening at work :D

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙

Sunday afternoon.
Feeling kinda bad because I didn’t go to church today morning;reason is I overslept. Second week and I missed attending church AGAIN. This has got to change.

I am officially a radio presenter. One week into the job and every single day it gets to me. Really been exhausted alot lately. Hosting a late-night show and I love it but the crazy hours manh! Always up the entire night but I gotta grind y’know. Very important.

Listening to Kenny G’s The Moment. Classic 🎧🎷🎵.

A day ago when I was going to work, I came across this beggar on the streets of Nairobi. He had no lower limbs and he was crawling with a cup he held on his right hand meant obviously for the money he gets by begging. The other hand was shorter and I couldn’t help but stare. He passed me and I stood just staring at him. I felt so so so bad for him. I followed him and I had some little money it wasn’t much though but I gave him. I hope it helped him somehow. I remember just staring at him till I broke down. I was careful enough  not to get noticed shedding tears :(. He kept on crawling and crawling and crawling. I could see people dropping money into his cup. If there was a way I could have changed his life that night, I swear I would have. Sensitive much?! I know.

I realised how blessed I am. I got to appreciate everything I have. It is because of these little things I see everyday that I get to view life from a different perspective. It got me thinking alot too. If I ever get the chance to start a foundation to help the less fortunate in my society then I will.

I was talking to my bestfriend last night. Something about me loving too much. She told me when I love, I love too hard and that gets me hurt in the end. Her advice; I need to not let anyone in. Loving myself so hard till I got no space left for none. Truth is, she is right. That is the reason why I find it hard letting go of all brokeness, pain, deceit, heartbreak.

That is the reason why all guys who have been coming my way have been getting negative vibes. Keeping up this ‘hardcore’ act for a while till I feel like I finally have healed and ready to move on.

Looking foward to this coming week. Work and all.

I kinda updated my whatsapp picture. So its my elder sissie Nina carrying a baby’s friend. Sparked alot of questions lol. Some thinking I got paged. Oh so I have been lol-ing the entire time. Last night some Nigerian guy who works with my mom kept asking me if it was my baby and if I was married LOL. He even goes ahead and tells me his inlove with me and wants to marry me LOOOL smh!!! 😄😄😄.

This is his story. Well he’s been in Kenya for quite a while. Often goes to his country and comes back. Well he did business with my mom and that is how we met. He’s been hitting on me for sometime now. But I think he is just a liar who wants to toy around. I just got no time for him.

Rain. The weather has changed here. It’s the rainy season. Getting colder by the day. Done painting my nails. White. Change from the usual black. I love the new colour 💅.

That’s it for today I guess. Thanks again for keeping up with me.

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙

Goodmorning. I send blessings your way my faithful readers 😘😘😘. Sunday morning. I overslept so I didn’t make it to church today. I think I am exhausted as well from my doings yesterday. Talk about yesterday. Epic!

I had fuuuuun! For the first time in my life ever I saw a Rolls Royce. That is one massive beast. Now i have new goals lol. I was blown away,totally blown away. Breathtaking. As soon as it entered the grounds everyone’s attention was drawn towards the silver Rolls. It was so funny how everyone was taking selfies. It caused so much commotion till Obina the funny Nigerian MC started making fun of us all :D:D:D. Peak of my day.

I love video games, cars,speed,sound. Future husband take notes lol!

Oh and btw i kinda met someone :). Okay it’s no one special because we did meet before at a shoot. He had a nice ride by the way. Yeah he was competing as well. Thing is I was introduced to him by an ex (while we still dated) and we met again. We talked. ALOT. He seems pretty nice so eeeerhm yeah. He’s cute though :)… okay now I will shut up hahaha.

Okay so I’ll be indoors today not much. Did i tell you that i am reconsidering the job opportunity at Nice Fm? apparently they want me to do a late night show and my mom is so much against it. *Sigh* We’ll see how that one pens out.

Okay y’all be good. Happy Easter my lovlies xoxo 😘😍

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙

Hello there, I am very poor at making sure I post every single day. Been a minute there huh?! But I got a lot to update tonight.

I am nervous tonight. My head aches, my tummy hurts; I guess its the butterflies. I will in a bit tell you why.

Well remember when I said I had to meet an ex of mine. Well I did. It was awesome because these feelings were kinda re-ignited. He knows am still into him and that I regret. Sucks! Here’s why; He travelled for work and asked if we could get back together and I said we would talk about it when he got back. He did get back but didn’t say a thing. Yikes! We text like once in a while but I feel like he’s always giving me a cold shoulder. Anytime i check my texts on my phone my heart always leaps with excitement hoping he’s gonna text. He does yes but once in a while. It’s not like before and I know things will never get back to the way they were. It’s okay. Am kinda getting used to the heartbreaks. Am just tired. I am. I need to let go. This time, for real.

Back to me being all nervous. I auditioned for a presenter at Nyce Fm and I got shortlisted. Tomorrow I am going on air from 1-5pm. I have no idea how am  gonna pull that off. Honestly I am scared. I keep thinking about it. Alot! I keep praying for favour from God. I don’t know how i’ll do it but I know God is with me. I need him more than ever. I have wanted this for the longest time now. This is what I want to do. I keep mumuring these words from the bible, “…as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for I know you are with me, your shepherd rod and staff, they comfort me…”

I feel like throwing up, is this even normal? I am sleep deprived, barely ate. It gets worse by the minute.

Rain! They say rain pours blessings from above. I hope tonight’s rain showers me with blessings.

I gotta go now. I trust you Lord. Pray with me if you read this.

Thankyou for keeping up with me. I love you.😍

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙

Hi there. Am home and abit exhausted. I am feeling nauseous too I don’t know why but am okay I guess. My day has been good as usual I thank God.

So been doing abit of thinking. Tomorrow I am supposed to meet up with an ex of mine. Here’s the full story. Wait! Hold up! 😨 Faithful readers, remember when I told y’all I don’t care whoever reads my posts :roll: Well I lied! I so totally care and I haven’t been completely honest. I’ll get back to that in a later post.

So I met X (name withheld) on social media. We hit it off immediately. Before we knew it we were already dating. It didn’t take long though. During one of our lengthy talks he admitted that he was so much into getting intimate that if I didn’t give him the cookie he was gonna get it elsewhere. I applaud the fact that he had the balls to actually say it and not go behind my back and cheat on me. Well that’s a first. So I broke up with him. Long story short we stopped talking, started talking, stopped talking and now we are talking once again. If you would have asked me if I am still into him a week ago I would have said yes. Ask me now…. *crickets* 😓

I am meeting him tomorrow but I am undecided. I know what he wants. If I meet up with him I know it’s back to square one;we are getting back together. Do I wanna get back together with him? :| If we get back together and he doesn’t get pussy from me he’s gonna get it elsewhere. As simple as that.

I am thinking of coming up with an excuse to not meet him. I am not getting hurt again. Been down that road before.

I am not into getting into a relationship anytime soon. I love being single and I don’t need anyone to be happy.

Enough with that. Okay moving on swiftly :)

Friday night. My friday nights made at home lol. Bored I swear. Nothing fancy. A movie or two. Guess am good.

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙

Hello once again it’s me. Its 7:12pm. In the kitchen tonight. I am preparing tonight’s dinner. Ugali,beef stew and veggies 🍲

An hour and a half later and I am done. 

My day today? Okay as usual. Watched movies and worked for the better part of it. Yeah am working from home writing reports and all. A blog thing and what not. Had a meeting in town but didn’t go. Came up with this lame excuse. Was feeling abit under the weather.

Right now I am listening to Aye by Davido. I looooove this song 💙 Coincidence? :roll: maybe?! :):):) which leads to this ~~~> I made a new friend. Been talking to this Nigerian guy who seems pretty nice but here’s the thing. I met him on social media nothing serious we just friends I guess. I kinda feel as though I said things I shouldn’t have said. I am not sure if it’s because I ate too much chocolate? I was on Oreo and Cadbury duty today. 💕 I looove myself some candy 😍💕 My sugar levels were really high, lots of excitment??? *thinking* Naaah lol am messing but I talked too much and somehow I kinda regret it. Wait! I don’t regret a thing. All I said was basically the truth.

So about the guy name with-held. Don’t get me wrong am never this talkative but for some reason I kept telling him things I wouldn’t tell anyone. To top it all up he’s a total stranger. I mean who does that 😫 I might have come off as naive I guess which I swear I am not. Kept blurting things out lol you’d think I’d have know him all my life. But still I don’t care what he thinks as long as he continues being super super sweet to me *shrug* hahaha… I dunno I guess am starting to be strong opinionated and speaking my mind. So eeerhm yeah.

I think he’s nice and quite charming based on what he’s been telling me so far. Hope it stays that way.
+1 friend added today :D

Talked to my bestfriend today too. We would have had lunch but I couldn’t make it. She had some great news. So happy for her. Lu got someone special in her life and says how much this new guy is super sweet and is into her. They are even leaving town for the weekend. Aaaaawh am happy for my boo boo. She deserves it and much more. Such an amazing lady. Love her to the moon and back 💛💛💛

In bed now. Tired? yes! Oh so I gotta wake up early tomorrow. Need to work out. The opportunity/interview I talked about in one of my recent posts? yeah that. Won’t say a thing but I gotta keep fit and in shape if I wanna succeed.

Gotta love you and leave you now. Thanks for stopping by *wink*

Again it’s nothing serious ;)
Later! 💙💙💙
