I’ve been utterly busy with this thing people call university.
Everything from shifting time tables and shifting classes has been happening lately. Being class rep’s not a fun job, imagine putting posters everywhere to inform people a class has been moved, so that they don’t say “we weren’t informed”.
You’ve not missed much though, My life’s been incredibly routine. School. Home. Family Errands. Repeat cycle. It doesn’t help that some of my friends have been swallowed whole by their places of work either! Everyone life is moving. Like the gears of a clock. I haven’t even gone out this month! It’s a record that I’ve been indoors a consecutive four weeks in a row. I’m going to get a medal for this. Very early in the semester and I’ve got a tonne of school work, academic research project included. Fun! Boring as it seems, at least life is as progressive as time.
Sat in a coffeehouse again (they should give me loyalty cards) waiting. I cursed the pimple that formed on my forehead that morning. (Shame on it! There was anti-inflammatory creams in the house so that helped it go down.) Would they get along with me? Were they taller or shorter? Were they going to be boring or fun? Such are the thoughts and questions that run through my mind whenever i meet a person for the first time. For the first time this year, i was on a date. How did it go? I’ll tell you after the 2nd one. Yes, he’s asked to see me again. This time cupid please aim properly. I took the plunge by going on this date, please don’t let this be one be an arse.
The night sky in the Kenyan summer (“hot season” locals call it) is a beautiful sight to gaze upon. I found myself out on my lawn, at 1am, lying down on the grass looking at the stars. It was a spectacularly warm night, and i had absolutely no sleep. Took the iPod and went outside. In nothing but my shirt and boxers! I love the cool breeze flowing over me, over the grass, and rustling the leaves of the trees and flowers. I was supposed to be listening to Laura Pausini but instead, i found myself a new age music playlist. In that playlist was a song called Imagination. There was something about the glittering stars, the crescent moon and the cool wind that made this song, which was already amazing, sound far more deep. The piano in the song is simple but so wonderful! The voices even add mysterious aura to it…
And now for February.
