So tired today.I’ll just dive right into stock…

Making: Sure I stick to my 2017 goals.

Cooking/Eating:

Healthy. Finally! Treading carefully lest I backslide so I reserve Sundays for cheat meals.

Drinking:

Masala tea. Mornings and evenings. It is my substitute for coffee since I read bad things about caffeine.

Reading:

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. In case you haven’t joined the book club, what are you waiting for?

Wanting:

To live in the moment. Sometimes I get obsessed with the future that I forget to take a moment to just breathe. So once in a while, I drop the make-up, head to this place in campus where they serve some good tea and just relax. Some evenings, I take a walk while listening to music. I miss the green grass, I’m such a lover of nature and the drought is doing no justice to my affiliation for green ambience.

Playing:

All songs on my playlist as I type. I love the way each of them takes me through different emotions. There’s Hey Stranger by Reekado Banks which has an amazing melody. It is a break up song but I love the beats so much that I forget the lyrics are meant to be sad. Welle welle by Timmy Dat makes just want to get up and dance and yes! I am very welle welle. Then we have loliwe by Zahara which is just calm and good to listen to I guess and Poison by Beyoncé which reminds me of my sisters because they love it so much. My sisters call me boniboni to mean bones. I really miss them because we always have this silly inside jokes that we just laugh so much at. Their laughter is contagious I tell you.

Creating:

The Future.

Wishing:

I had all the money in the world to just do everything I want to do. I am at the startup stage where ideas are rich but Cashflow isn’t. This is probably why people prefer the certainty of 9-5 jobs. The truth is that even if I quit now, in five months I will be back at it and it will be the same process all over again. This is probably the patience with which I am handling my fitness journey as well. I am going to endure. There’s this saying:

“In general, do not start a startup you are not willing to work on for 10 years.”

I took that seriously when I started and I am living every moment of it.

Wondering:

When my miracle will happen.

Loving:

Nation FM lately. Do you know how amazing it is to just listen to music throughout when working out? I can almost predict the song they will play next. They really make my mornings worthwhile. Speaking of workout, squats will be the death of me. I chewed blackout the first time I raised a barbell. I kid you not. For like 20 seconds I saw stars and colors all over and nearly lost balance. Believe me when I say death is real.

Hoping:

February brings new joys.

Needing:

More tank tops and sneakers. I feel like I have used the ones I have so much. More sports socks would do. A new water bottle is also looming since the previous one broke.

Watching:

How to get away with Murder. I am hooked and it is so well written. I have a crush on Wes. Some spoilers told me that he died but lemme keep crushing. He actually looks like someone I know. The things I have done to him on my head, Hmmmh…

Bookmarking:

The Business Insider.

Noticing:

That my passions chose me way before I became self-aware. It is so fulfilling to do what I love. Some people do not get to do things they love in their lifetime and I feel lucky to be in a position to do that. If I died today, I’d be satisfied that at least I tried to reach for my dream.
