I first read a “Taking Stock” post by Valerie of Cateyes and Carrots. After snooping around the blogosphere, I eventually found the originator of the Taking Stock Posts, Pip at Meet Me At Mikes. I thought it was a pretty rad way of reflecting on the month and looking at all the things that have happened so far and, in this case, a way to reintroduce myself to this blog. Here goes.
Making: different clothes and outfits. I get this mad rush of inspiration occasionally and I cannot afford to let it pass me by without going HAM.
Cooking: Not very much. Because, leftovers and laziness.
Drinking: Not enough water. Sucks for me.
Reading: Girls At War by Chinua Achebe and Africa39.
Wanting: to recreate my personal space asap.
Looking: forward to Ramadan. Lord knows this girl needs a serious Iman boost.
Playing: phones games a whole lot less.
Deciding: to shut out every form of negativity.
Wishing: the fuel price hike would be reversed and the economy would get better soon.
Enjoying: the time and good health I have been blessed with. I’m constantly reminded about how this is a gift from Allah I need to use to the fullest.
Waiting: for change.
Liking: cute children videos on the Internet. Brightens up my day.
Wondering: why airport announcers tend to sound nasal.
Loving: the woman I am becoming, in and out.
Disliking: wall geckos. Eek.
Buying: Lots of oils. I love trying out new oils but my all time go to has to be coconut oil.
Watching: People. People watching can be fun sometimes. It beats pressing your phone every time in my opinion.
Hoping: that I get to finish my reading challenge for the year. I don’t want to buy new books if I can’t finish the ones I have.
Marveling: at how resilient Nigerians can be.
Needing: to get my workout game in check.
Smelling: like coconut oil mostly.
Wearing: more high waist skirts. Very flattering, in my opinion. Lol.
Knowing: that protecting my space is key to my peace of mind.
Believing: that everything will work out well in the end.
Preparing: for joy.
Thinking: about new recipes.
Bookmarking: This. I’m looking to add chia seeds in my diet. Does anyone have tips?
Giggling: at old Top Gear episodes.
