Miss you

I miss you all.
Sincerely, I do.
Dressmaking is time consuming, really. I get home everynight, barely able to swallow any meal before sleeping off. I apologise for not coming online, its just that i only think of needles, taperule, threads, fabrics, colours and stuff.

Its been terrific but fun. I am almost getting there and am so proud of myself.

So sorry, i cant post much cos my thoughts arent really in order and i dont want to upset you all.
I am fine and doing stuff.

Bye ya!

Intra State Relationship

He lives on the other side of town...
She works on the other side of his workplace...
They both hang on to phone calls, e-mails and text messages...
She doesn't get suprises during the week...
He cant call her up as led by his thoughts for dinner...
She travels for 3hrs before getting to his place due to distance and traffic...
He spends few hours with her before driving her home...
They both wait for another week before seeing, touching, feeling and kissing each other...
She wants to see him often...
He needs to watch her grow to love him...
The strain of distance is tearing them apart...
They are both unhappy...
How do you cope with intra state relationship?

Dressmaking

Hi...?

Hello...?

Compliments...?


Sincerely, i dont know how to start this post, all i just wanna say is, i have missed you all...i miss the net like crazy....i miss blogsville, most especially.

Well, i havent deliberately kept away from this ville, i have just been busy, yea, really busy....for a good cause though. Ofcourse, i know i should have stopped by to drop a line or two for you all to know i am still alive, just didnt know how to go about dropping a line...(grinning).

I resigned from my last employment.

It just wasnt challenging anymore... i felt enclosed in a cage where i couldnt move, freely. I needed space. I craved for a situation where things could be done differently. I actually longed for an environment where i could solely develope a project and watch it grow. I simply wasnt getting any kick out of it all.

At the beginning, it was fun. I was involved with things i had only learnt theoretically in school, so it was pure excitement. But as time went by, i realised i had to wake up in the morning, dress modestly ( i mean corporately) and report to an office where i had to do the same things over and over again. I am just not cut out for monotonous activities, not at all.

Although resigning has restricted my access to the internet, i still look forward to moments like now that i can get in touch with you all.

So, I am jobless and penniless.... ehn?

What will i do with this endless time on my hands?

Interestingly, i have gotten myself hooked with something that is more challenging, more frustrating if i dont get it right, more exciting, more tiring, more time consuming and more creative.

I am into dressmaking.

Yea, you read right.

I started learning the profession second week of january and as of the moment this post is being composed, i have a chic gown - laid on my bed cos its like a prized trophy- made by moi! I designed a gown, cut it then put the pieces together and i made me a lovely gown.

I am so thrilled with my accomplishment. My mistress was and is still filled with pride at my progress. I am still dazed that i could really do what i did in just 4 weeks! So, bloggers, start sending your measurements so i can practise with your fabrics LOL!

Well, i have to rest my needle pinched fingers for tonight.

I dont know when next i'll post to this blog. I dont know when next i'll read from you all. But much that i know is that, you all are in my thoughts, daily. Stuff pops into my head and am like - i need to post this on blogsville- then i realise i am seated in front of a sewing machine with a measuring tape around my neck, a pencil behind my ear and i laugh and at times, i sob at that other life that i so much long for but has to be on hold in order to fulfil another life that is so much in need... wierd right?

Lotsa luv!

Paypackages and Qualifications

This post is just my thoughts and observation with no particular company in mind. Any resemblance to actual persons: employed or unemployed, companies: thriving or liquidated, is purely coincidental.

It irks me to see employees that are underpaid because they are not graduates but work effortlessly and put in more hardwork than some of their colleagues that are graduates, fickle brained and earn more.

Is it a standard everywhere that graduates gets paid more than undergraduates or its just a partial attitude from employers? Or they just decide to look the other way cos of a simple piece of paper that states that so and so person graduated from so and so school with so and so degree? Wait a minute! Is there a law somewhere that states that undergraduates should be given much work and treated with disdain in order for them to go back to school and complete their education so they can equally sit and earn big pay? I wonder what will happen to companies when everybody is a graduate and there's just no one to be underpaid who will do the job.

Its so demeaning to see someone work his butt off just to get the job done and there is this person that just sits somewhere without doing nothing and at the end of the month their paypackages are worlds apart. I just cant, for the life of me do that to my employees (when i do have them) Never ever!


One funny thing is, some employers complain about a particular staff who is a graduate that isnt fit to earn half of what is being paid, yet they continue to pay. Even when it is obvious that some staff work harder, come rain, come sunshine but they just fail to pay in order of productivity. My friends and i compare notes about our workplaces and the treatment that is being metted out to staff and we've just discovered that its the same everywhere (I dont know about your own workplace, though). There are really good graduates out there that are efficient and up to the task. But sincerely, why would some employers pay a dumbass graduate more than an agile, intelligent and hardworking undergraduate? (Maybe the employers are dumbasses too!)

When you look at terms of employment, it probably states " management trainee" "on probation" "salary will be reviewed based on productivity" "incentives" e.t.c. but when it comes to it...your salary becomes insignificant, you work just to earn more and the ones who arent working get promoted.

Will there ever be a time when you get paid according to your intelligence and not according to a paper from a school? Maybe a policy can be issued regarding this. Maybe its just the system i am in and its different out there. And most times the hardworker and the ficklebrained knows their pay packages should be swapped. They cant just do anything about it.

Maybe i am just out to see people earn according to their hardwork. Maybe i am just wrong. Wont it be simply wonderful if an undergraduate who is up to the task earn more than a graduate that is not? It will make the fickle brains sit up and act properly - incentives to the undergrads...abi?

I am outta here!

Memories

Ok, this is it.

I am thinking about the hairstyle i want to wear for christmas and new year.

Wierd, abi?

I keep seeing myself this christmas with an old school look. You know, the big afro hairstyle that reminds me of my mum - i have this passport (the only picture i have of her) where she had on an afro... i keep seeing myself wearing that style everytime i think of the forthcoming celebrations.

Of late, i have been thinking about her and its not even her memorial or anything....i just remember her and associate her to instances. To think i was so young when she died, i am baffled at the rate my thoughts dwell on her. I compare my friend's mothers to her everytime, i dont know if i am making sense, its just the way i feel.

Truth is, i am feeling miserable.
I feel so out of place, nowadays.
I keep thinking if she wasnt gone, i'll be a better person.
I guess i am just wishing she isnt out of my life.

I have so many things i want to ask her.
So many things i want to tell her.
So many things i want to take from her.
So many things i want to give her.

But she's no more.
Gone.
Out of this world.
She's where i can never connect to her.

I wish we could go to the market and shop together.
I wish i could tell her about blogsville and my naughty thoughts.
I wish i could post her picture here.
I just wish she's here.


Since i cant think of anything else, i am going to spend this season looking like her. I will sing her favourite songs, say quotes from her and make anecdotes. She's been gone for 13 years and 6 months and its still like yesterday...i can still remember the last time i saw her...what we talked about, word for word.

I hope during this yuletide, i can finally put her to rest in my mind.
I pray that i finally accept that she's gone and can only wish for me to live a fulfilling life.
I wish to be able to come back next year without pain in my heart.

I hurt, so terribly.

He Cries.

Bushy eyebrows that archs gracefully.
Eyes so dark and piercing to make you stare in curiosity.
A beautifully shaped mouth that curls seductively when in laughter.
Lips that looks sexy enough to chew, lick and kiss.


Strong arms.
Firm butt.
Long legs.
Appealing smell.
A well defined body.


A heart that gives warmth.
A mind that is calculating and accomodating.
A soul that is deep, sensual and vicious, maybe when provoked.
A being that is imperfect.


A character that is defining.
Great sense of humor.
An attitude that is wacky.
Dress sense: always attractive.

A ruthless and shrewd business mogul.
An avid reader of books.
Religious
A philosopher.


A man.
Born of woman.


Yet, he cries.
Deep sounds coming from within.
At times, he howls.
At times, he just whimpers.


Its scary.
I feel like running away.
I want to embrace and console him.
Kiss the tears away.


What am i supposed to do?
Do i cry with him?
Smile inwardly?
How do i pet him?


Really, how do you handle a man that cries?

Crazy Love.

Falling in love with him....

Will i feel like i want to be one with him?
Will there be tears whenever he expresses his love for me?
Will i want to be close to him?

Above all, will i always and i really mean always want to crawl, run and stick, if possible to his body needing to be inside of him so there will be no reason to be apart from one another?

I know that...

I will make him a man to be proud of,
I will give him my all,
I will surround him with lots of love, care, happiness and ofcourse an abundance of naughtiness

Ultimate question...
Will he feel the same?
Will he tremble at the sight of me?
Will he feel like tearing any wall apart just to be with me?
Will he want to lock lips with me forever?
Is there any basic goodness at the core of his being that will radiate love, for me?

There is a love only you can give.
A smile that your lips alone can show.
A twinkle that can only be seen in your eyes.
And a life of mine that you alone can complete.

Where are you?

On My Way Home.

Bus driver is drunk.

Bus conductor is veeery rude.

Passengers are angry and afraid at the way the bus is swerving.

Me afraid?! No, forever amused.

I was actually seated beside the driver. When i boarded the bus there was no smell of alcohol on the driver...maybe because he didnt open his mouth. As the journey progressed, the driver looked at me and said:

"u don correct ya change?" ( have you collected your change?)
Me (paused and stared rudely at the driver's brown, scattered and nicotine stained teeth): "not yet"

Meeen.....the guy can smell!

As the journey continued we got caught up in a normal traffic jam. The driver started changing lanes crazily. Passengers began to caution him. I kept smiling. It was as if he was after something or something was after him...might be the devil. It got to a point he almost drove a bikeman into a huge canal. At that point passengers were already cursing him. The guy behind me began to tell the driver he will get him(driver) arrested.

While passengers were insulting the bus driver... i saw from the side mirror the bike man whipping the conductor who had earlier refused to give me my change. I started laughing...before i could say hey!...the bike man was beside the driver and was about to whip him....

haaaaa.........heeeee....beat him!....kill him!...arrest him!....driver dont be offended!....this man is mad!......why beg driver?!......

The bikeman told the driver that he is stupid and chased the bus conductor who was seen hanging by the door of a molue....it was just too funny. Meanwhile bus driver refused to start the bus.

There was this gentle looking guy dressed in a black suit - (still wondering why he was still wearing a suit at that time of the day) - in the bus who hardly said a word until the driver said he was not going anywhere. Passengers started yelling...screaming...a baby began to wail...

Black suit began to speak grammar: you are insane...your medula oblongata has been tampered with!....

Driver replied with: oroshi...wu u be...what is wrong with my driving?

I really wished i had a camera (although, i'll get beaten if i started taken shots)

Blacksuit promised to beat up the driver. Driver said black suit is a bastard!

I turned to black suit and said: we all know you are not a bastard but for the sake of posterity will you stop replying this man?

Blacksuit began to sweat...heavily....it began to trickle down his face....i kept wondering what it felt to be called a bastard in public by a mere bus driver who is a complete illiterate and too drunk for his own good.

A passenger told the driver sorry, start the damn bus and get going...
I said: Lets call a madman the groom so he will allow us move on. All the passengers supported that. Driver gave me a dirty look and i smiled brightly at him.

Vehicles behind the bus were honking angrily...the bus had added to the hold up.

My normal self was greatly amused and thinking of how to relate this on blogsville.

Halleluyah! the journey continued.

Blacksuit was by now promising to give the driver the best beating he's ever gotten.

I was nearing my stop. I wish i could get to the last bus stop so as to know what will happen when all of a sudden the driver brought out a torch and looked at his dashboard. I laughed...aloud. Even blacksuit couldnt help but to join in the laughter. It was just too funny.

Then the driver said: "mi o fe jade leni tele o" "awon were lo wa ninu moto yi" (didnt want to work today. too many madmen in this bus).

Alas! i had to alight.

I didnt regret boarding the bus. I had pure fun.
It all happened on my way home last night.

Wait! conductor! My change!

Weight gain: Good or Bad?

My female siblings are actually big. I am (ooh...was) actually the only female that looks like a stick...what we term in nigeria as 'ilepa shandi'. It was so terrible then because i couldnt even wear my sisters clothes.

I always prayed to God to make me fat overnight. My prayers just got answered but despite my inner peace at my build, people around are like "you are no longer beautiful" "you need to watch it, girl" "You dont look sexy anymore" these comments and more keeps coming my way daily and am like "am i really going out of proportion or is it just the craze for thin reed babes?

Anyways, i am not going to allow these comments to stop me from feeling great about myself.

Last time i shopped i was shocked at the size that really accomodated my big backside. But to be very sincere, i am happy. Very happy. If you have to put into consideration my thin frame, maybe you will understand my joy with the fact that i have added weight.

The problem now is...the clothes i bought the last time no longer fit! I spend up to 2 minutes putting on my trousers and my shirts no longer buttons. The zipper on my skirt doesnt zip anymore. Not until then did the question begin to go round in my head...am i getting fat?!

See, i used to be a size 8.

I have been to the gym just to reduce a little fat and guess what, i ran away after some months. The instructor at the gym is really baffled! I have no reason whatsoever for not going anymore. I just stopped going. My friends are like "is she crazy or something"

The question i have been asking myself of late is "are you really happy with your physique or simply playing with fire?"

Now, i wear size 12.
