I had such an amazing weekend. Everyone was home – fantastic.
Why does fate do this to me? Just heard the man behind me cough and I just…
I hope it’s going to be a good day. I have super good vibes about this week.
Genuinely psyched about this week’s tasks. Need to embark on my online course and gather data for M&E.
Classic 105 has such smooth jams today…
I’ve been reading a lot of Twitter threads and I must admit, I’m learning so much.
Celine Dion sings beautifully… Bless her voice.
I’ve been thinking a lot about solid friendships (or lack thereof) and I feel like things will look up for me in this department – sooner than I expected.
I wrote a list of the kind of friends I’d like to have, then dedicated it to God (just once – lol).
There’s no harm in demanding more from the universe, yes, even in relationships.
I’m documenting this here for when GOOD FRIENDS start coming through…
My mum always asks me, “Are you a good friend yourself?” My answer to that was, “YES.” I feel like I have all it takes to be a good bo (learnt it on Scrabble this week). If the energy is reciprocated though, I’ll be home and dry. I’m tired of giving too much and not getting the same energy back.
It’s 7:16am, now on Mukoma Road. Looks like I’ll make it in good time. Also, there’s no traffic today. I’m super surprised.
7:35 – Nyayo. Amazing!!!
Am I the only one who checks out cars I can’t afford in showrooms???
Was just checking out the Mercedes Benz showroom at Nyayo – there’s literally nothing I like (lol, you’d think I can afford one ata). Again, there’s absolutely no harm in DREAMING BIG.
May doors open for me.
Today’s discussion is on 6 year old kids having masks in schools. I don’t know how I feel about kids going back to school with Corona still looming.
Some parents are sending in their opinions – most of them do not intend to send their kids back to school. Fair enough.
I’m super scared for the kids and I’m not even a parent. I can imagine how worried parents are.
I need to buy a microphone for my vlogs. I’m super scared about online shopping though. To be fair, I got my phone online and so far, so good. So I might as well risk it.
Yesterday was a super productive day. I put in the work. Unlike last week, I’ve already started working on a proposal that’s due Friday today. Started on a high.
I also ordered for a microphone. I hope it is compatible with my phone.
Today, though, I woke up super demotivated. Snoozed thrice, took my time to prepare and honestly didn’t give a hoot about the matatu I took.
My highlight was my imaginary interview in the shower. I was telling the talk show audience not to give up on their art. That it takes sometime, but they shouldn’t give up.
Oh well, my mantra today is, ‘better late than never’. Honestly though.
It’s 8:00 – Now on Mukoma Road. Sigh.
I’m really trying to lock out negative vibes. Whenever a bad thought crops up, I don’t give it time.
Traffic in Park Place, I’m screwed.
The only reason I took this matatu was because it was a woman conductor. Yeah, women empowerment. No, I don’t have any regrets.
It would be nice to have music though. There’s no radio. Just a bunch of adults on their phones, probably wrapped up in consumption of (mostly) negative updates.
The lady seated next to me – not really next, because one metre – is listening to music on her phone as she types.
I look back and the conductor hums every now and then… She seems happy.
The driver steers slowly, almost like he is afraid he might break the wheel. He even has the guts to wave at other drivers. I really miss the fast matatus…
Passed by my old school, so nostalgic today. I don’t feel as nostalgic as I used to during my internship days when I was fresh out of school.
Baboons, two of them. Oh wait, there’s six.
Today my thoughts on friendship major on how I like unproblematic endings. You drift as friends, but the respect is still there. Love it!!!
We’ve been stopped by a cop. This day is one for the books. Apparently this is not the right stage. The driver has gone to ‘negotiate’ with him.
Lang’ata joggers. A sight for sore eyes. I especially love seeing ‘fuller’ joggers because I find them super relatable. When looking for exercise videos these days, I like making sure that there’s representation. I love seeing my own kind.
I still intend to keep my energy at . I felt like spoiling my late self , so I didn’t see the need to carry breakfast and lunch. I need to be one of those, “there’s food at home” girls, because really, there’s food at home.
Heavy traffic in Madaraka. Oh, now I’m really screwed.
Got to work at 9am. Hi clown.
The sun is shining brightly today. Looks like it’s going to be a rad day.
My affirmation game is top notch. I keep saying good things about myself, my craft and my future. Love to see it tho… 🙂
Today I’m not as late as I was yesterday.
The mat isn’t as bad as yesterday’s. Still has no music *sobs*.
My highlight was that there’s a lady in the mat who requested that we overlap. A queen that one. I admire how she was vocal about it with no shame, even if she was clearly telling a pious driver to break the law. Her pleas fell on deaf ears, it’s like the conductor was a wall. She was shouting at a wall, pointless.
Spotted a green vintage Volvo – so beautiful.
7:48am, Park Place.
Nope, no overlapping – my choice in matatus is like my choice in guys, really misguided.
To think I ditched other potential good matatus for this one (for some weird reason I can’t put my finger on).
It’s going to be a lovely day. I really like sunny days.
Just spotted a matatu in Madaraka with the words ‘NA HII KITAMBI UTAWEZANA’ Yes, written boldly, No, no question mark. Too soon, haha. Mejja’s line ‘hawa maboy wa kupiga looku hawananga kakitu’ really stood out for me, because I know someone who fits that description…from my past…Haha. In short, I FELT THAT…
8:12 – Nyayo Stadium. There was no traffic today. Hurrah!! I won’t be buying junk today because as said yesterday, ‘there’s food at home.’
The man seated a metre away from me just asked someone on the other end of the line, “Fare Ni How Much?” I don’t want to assume it’s a damsel. It could be a sibling, no??? All in all I feel like I missed that ‘tuma fare’ class because in my 23 years on earth, I have never been sent for fare by someone I’m seeing (could be because they were all broke ). No, I don’t think I’m better than other women. To each their own.
“Nimekutumia, we enda, ” said he who is using a red Samsung (gasp, they exist?). I don’t think it was a babe, must be his colleague because he’s directing them to a place to buy supplies for an ongoing construction.
I don’t eevesdrop on stranger’s conversations (okay, maybe I do because they make for great stories). In my defense, man’s is loud and there’s no music in this mat.
8:21 – Uhuru Highway. I won’t be too late. Gotta get that paper.
I feel like I should alight at Agip to lengthen my walking distance today. I’m in such a good mood.
Maybe this will help in psyching my mind for the proposal I’m about to go write. It’s on persons living with disabilities (PWDs). Super passionate about it.
8:40am. Not as bad as yesterday, but I sure am glad I’m here. There’s days I used to get to work at 6:20am, 7:00am. I need to go back to that space.
The walk was productive, I feel energised and ready to kick off my day.
I wish you luck in yours, Fam.
Miss No Idea Fam.
