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.

This is 30

It's been a week since i waved a tearful goodbye to my 20s. I'm still trying to adjust. I feel like i became an old woman overnight. I didn't even celebrate it. Which was as much of a surprise to me as it was to everyone else. I mean, if you had asked me 6mos ago what i was doing for the dirty30 (or flirty30 as Toin called it lol), i would've had a laundry list of ideas.

Oh well.

It turned out to be just another Thursday.

Got up, got myself together. Went to work. Ironically, we had our annual town hall meeting so that meant free breakfast:

and a 'holiday' token of appreciation:

I treated myself to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch since it was actually payday too. (what a birthday gift...to wake up to money in your bank account)

When i got back from lunch, i found my cubicle like this:

LOL.

I did make plans to go to the spa that weekend but that didn't come to fruition. I did however get pretty much all my Christmas shopping done that weekend so there's that.

Happy Holidays everyone.
