When the travel bug bites you...

Note: I actually wrote this post forever ago but so much time had passed, I just never finished it. But since our dear Sisi Yemmie is back in SA for BankyW and Adesua's wedding, I figured now would be just as good a time as any to go ahead and share it.

Have you all been following Sisi Yemmie's South African adventures?

Whomever is over their tourism department needs to be paying our dear Yemisi because she is certainly making me want to go to Sun City. Even went online to see how much a flight would be.

That is when I woke up from my dream lol.  Those tickets were sky high AND the flight from here was ridiculously long with equally foolish layovers.

Back to the drawing board I guess.

If you haven't seen Sisi Yemmie's videos, you can check out her channel here

In other travel news, I did take a nice trip to Tennessee to explore Ruby Falls and Rock City a while back. Rock City wasn't all that great but Ruby Falls was absolutely gorgeous. I highly suggest it to anyone in the area.

Love and other mushy stuff

My church's current worship series is about the Book of Jonah. The one we just came out of (that i missed 90% of cuz i was being wayward lol) was on Love (and relationships). So i finally decided to give in to this "Love Languages" thing. My results were both predictable yet surprising.

My Scores:
8- Quality Time
8- Words of Affirmation
5- Acts of Service
5- Physical Touch
4- Receiving Gifts

I'm surprised Quality Time was number 1 and definitely surprised that Physical Touch wasn't number 5 lol. TBH, i think Receiving Gifts was so low on the totem pole because I really do have something of a mental block about accepting gifts from people but I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOVE getting thoughtful notes/gifts/etc from people.

If i could re-order them myself, knowing the full description of each language, i would say they are :
1) Words of Affirmation
2) Receiving Gifts
3) Acts of Service
4) Quality Time
5) Physical Touch

Have you found out what your (and your partner's) love languages are? You really should. It certainly helps put things in perspective.

Anywho, along those lines...I finally saw The Wedding Party. It was...good. Not as good as everyone was making it seem. But definitely shows that Nollywood has come leaps and bounds from yesteryear! There were so many other directions the movie could've gone and so many storylines that could've been flushed out but what can ya do? It definitely was predictable but still managed to keep me laughing (and screaming and sighing).

Have a good week everyone!

He's Intentional...and so am I

Hola, mi gente! Ekele, ndi'm! Greetings, my people.

Seeing as its about to be February, it seems silly to say Happy New Year but Happy New Year all the same. Its only been a month into 2017 and already the year is dragging. Or is it because Chester Cheeto is my new "president" and seems hell bent on ruining the world. I don't know.

Anyway, on to better gist.

I would say being intentional is my new years resolution but 1- i don't make new years resolutions and 2- I've been working on this for some time now. Much sooner than Jan 1, 2017.

I like to pride myself on being a planner. A thinker. A forecaster, if you will. I can't function in extreme chaos. I like there to be sense in what I do and I like what i do to make sense. So its a surprise to me even how i've let myself get caught up in just...doing things just to be doing them.

No mas though. 

I've been working on making decisions that are best for me in the short term AND the long term. Severing ties that i know should've been severed long ago. Putting myself out there more. Making connections. Pursuing opportunities. 

Being intentional.
