I like you
I like us.
but I've come to realise
I like me more.

I know we would be great together
but honestly,
I'm great with me right now.

This is not an 'independent' rant
but rather a 'my new best friend is me' kinda discovery
You know that woman you saw in me?
The strong, defiant, woman
You are convinced would make a good wife?
Well, I'm still getting to know her.
And for right now, she needs all my attention.

I'm not out to hurt you
Im not looking to replace you either.
But to give myself to you right now
Would only be making us both miserable.

Like I said,
its not that I dont like you
Its just that..
Well, I like me more.

Today I met another fine boy
Cute, shy, white boy.
Wednesday, Fabulo-la will make her move.
I kid you not.
All my flirting techniques will be put to use Wednesday.
I can't wait!
I know what you are thinking,
The engineer and the spartan nko?
Well, what can I say?
They are boring me jo.

Finally saw District 9.
Me I don't know what all the fuss is about.
I will not bore you will all the parallel themes and plots I thought were amazing,
But frankly the movie was that good.
I enjoyed it. Tremendously.
I'm not sure what all the noise is about.
Jus' saying.

School is a BEEYATCH!
But I love it.
I was reminded of how much older than the rest of my class I am today.
3 years older than the average American college senior.
I know its not a big deal.
But I can hear what they are really not saying...
Its been humbling actually.
But sometimes....
To be reminded that your own mates are done with their 2 degrees
And I'm still working on my first.
Sometimes it doesn't bother me
Other times...
Its a completely different story.
But they say
It's not how you start, its how you finish ei?
I certainly hope so.

How is everybody doing?

Don't worry about the age thing, it's how you finish.

Sometimes , we should not make excuses for being selfish, we deserve it

finishing first is over-rated

hmmm... i think NoLimit's yarn on Vera's happily single talk show summarises the best points of what I want to say on this..

Bottom line, knowing yourself is critical.... before the complications that someone else will bring..

nice writeup.
i think the noise about the film is the bad potrayal of nigerians as savages...it was even banned from theaters in nigeria.
