April! Happy birthday to you April babies out there. I’ve seen some dope April fools pranks over the years, but this years’ were dull. Maybe next year…
Making Building: on my list of favorite quotes from (books and movies) reminds me of the diary I used to keep back in my primary school days at Taibah Junior. I wonder what happened to that diary. Hmmm
Cooking: cinnamon oats, with banana and honey
Drinking: hot chocolate
Reading: Anne Karenina (Yes I’m still reading this and plan on finishing it) thank you very much
Wanting: to visit and explore more places. I feel like the world is a big town waiting for me to discover it. Sigh!
Looking: forward to going jogging later today…hopefully
Playing: more Ugandan music on my playlists, hoping someone will be kind enough to send me more jams by A-pass.
Deciding: to embrace situations as they come. I’ve been getting several rejections to my requests lately. “No. That’s not how it’s done. Or “No. That’s going to be tricky.” This just inspires me even more.
Enjoying: the scent of clean, fresh air after a rainy day, despite the cold which makes it easier for me to take walks
Waiting: for my avocado and honey mask to dry. I’ve got to get to the bottom of these frequent breakouts on my face! I’m looking into using some natural oils next. You guys have any recommendations?
Liking: that I’m opening up more and meeting all sorts of people; I used to be reticent and guarded-still am actually. The other day in the taxi I sat next to a lawyer who kept trying to bond with me, asking questions that ended up freaking me out.
Wondering: whether I could pull off learning a new foreign language within a year and if I’d sound cool
Loving: the way my hair feels after a good steam with a healthy treatment leave-in
Pondering: whether to get a second ear piercing
Considering: spending more time outdoors with friends, and being a little more open to getting weirder (than usual)
Watching: Community- it’s still hilarious as ever, I like that they keep adding some diverse characters
Hoping: to make enjoyable memories and closer connections with new friends
Marvelling: at two birds outside my window chirping. Lately I’ve been reading up on the bird species in Uganda-fascinating stuff
Needing: to spend less time on Pinterest mostly checking out pastry recipes and fitness tricks –I’m having mixed feelings about fudge cake while picturing myself doing 30 lunges
Smelling: scrambled eggs
Wearing: white cotton socks and layers to keep warm
Following: Young and hungry season 2, I’m ready for another awkward love-rollercoaster between Josh and Gabby
Noticing: how perfect the weather is today seeing as its Easter Sunday
Knowing: it’s better to keep moving forward after something doesn’t work out whilst learning from failure and not letting fear control my decisions
Thinking: about the phone calls to make, emails to send, appointments that need to be made tomorrow
Admiring: photography constantly and the work of different photographers on tumbler, is helping me get inspired in every aspect of my life
Sorting: these pages I’d saved in to separate folders; you ever download a bunch of pages planning to read them later so they keep piling up?
Buying: more junk food than I’d like to, because I plan on burning the calories later he he
Getting: accustomed to a new thought process that involves following my intuitions, discovering new ideas that spur from my daily life experiences
Bookmarking: The Picture Of Dorain Gray
Disliking: the ease with which I eves-drop on people’s conversations, hoping to randomly jump in.
Opening: a can of peanut butter
Giggling: at a funny picture of myself on Instagram: I’m warming up to posting more real-ish pictures if that makes sense. I guess it’s part of accepting myself, “filterless”
Feeling: guilty that I didn’t find time this week to return three books I borrowed a while back.
Snacking: on roasted g-nuts
Coveting: that I haven’t been drinking as much water as I ought to and it shows
Wishing Trying: to figure out which general direction to go towards in my life / career & relationships
I hope this month brings you explainable joys, growth and delight in every aspect of your life. Are you enjoying the new month so far, anything exciting, some new plans? Tell mee…
Enjoy April and stay awesome,
