If I challenged you to produce tears in 60 seconds, could you do it? Give it a go before reading this and tell me how you get on..
Whether we cry during a movie, the birth of our new baby and at celebrations those tiny drops just can’t seem to dribble down our cheeks. Whilst other people wrap themselves in cotton when watching a scaring moving and peeking through like a pirate one eye I just let a tears surround me. That way I know nothing is holding me down. Problems we all have and have faced. Sometimes these can cause chaos. Where there are sad tears there are happier ones.
Tear signals us when we are mostly in a vulnerable state. We do this because we simply need a helping hand from others. As our skin folds and reveals our true age through wrinkles (Lol) we step away from the noisy sounds we make when a whip crossed our buttocks when we were still toddlers being naughty. Now we are grown up we shed not only new skin that reveals our youthfulness but tears that mirrors our identity and roots.
When Africans cry they say, “Mamma mia” and start rolling on the floor but when peeps do the same thing they, “I am sorry mummy” or they start looking for their siblings for comfort. So true. I find it so funny especially if the person re-enacts it in their culture. Try asking an African person to do it for you. It’s so much better and funnier.
They speak in a thousand words and more eloquently in tongues.
The pain we have through cannot heal
This cannot be real
It cannot be erased
These are the little drops
That comes gushing down your cheeks
It’s the only way your eyes speak
When your mouth cannot put words into place
You drown yourself in tears
Whilst your heart is crying
No one will notice
When your poor old soul is dying
After a good cry I feel like my body has been cleansed back to front. These are my tears. There are TEARS in my BOTTLE.. So why do we cry one might ask? It’s because you see a fly land on your food and instead of succumbing to crying you let a sneeze by saying, “a-tissue”.
I can’t wait to hear all your answers to my challenge. I bet I am going to be laughing so hard that the back of my head is going to hurt like no men’s business & I am totally going to be soaked in my own tears dripping down my clothes like I have wet myself.
Believe me or not but I never forget exact times. It was at the crack of the dawn on Wednesday at exactly 7:41am when I saw the most shocking news and I was in utterly shock. It was like my mind was playing some tricks on me or maybe I was analysing too much. When I saw the message on facebook it was posted by a celebrity and my eyes were darting back and forth just trying to get the gist of the story whether it was true or not. I couldn’t believe it even though one day or another we will all go through that phase at some point. My jaw literally dropped like sagging pants.
As I was twinkling away glued to my laptop I was afraid to hear or see that the news of Maya’s death were not true. After seeing my friends and celebrities pouring their hearts out by leaving condolence messages and even making her quotes as their status, the news really knocked me 6 feet down.
It’s never late to get something you have always wanted. It can range from getting rid of scars or any embarrassing feature on your body. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how strong you because in the end you still die. There is no way to tell when, where, why or how. People die from the simplest things. For instance one minute an individual can be so happy enjoy and having a total sh-amazing balls to just curdling on their bed and all of a sudden there is nothing but silence in the room the next morning. That’s life!
Is it Right or is it Wrong?
Is it a Yes or a No?
Is it True or is it False?
Maybe it’s neither Right nor Left..
This is the one thing you cannot reverse in life.
She was not only a mother or a writer but a sister, niece, grandmother, aunt and friend that everyone looked up to and still does. Her passing left alot of worry and saddened the nation. My heart goes out to all those who have lost their loved ones.
On that note I leave you with something to think about:
We often contemplate what to write when we are writing or responding a letter. At times just writing a letter can be so frustrating as you do not know where to start and end. I love letters but only if it’s something unexpected and it is good news. However, nowadays emails are the way forward. I can write for hours, later alone years and still not get bored. I recall in primary school when every weekend we had letter writing. We had to let our parents know about our school life, sports competitions in which we were involved and also what we wanted them to bring us.
We love email, as we should—for its brilliant speed, its global reach, and its free transmission of vast amounts of information. Letters tend to hang around for far longer than the writer intended. Handwriting; paper; letters: they are drifting from our lives now and it’s nothing personal.
Before sending off a letter to your chosen school or workplace you must learn to keep certain things in mind. Remember once the letter is send off it is out of hands. Once it is out there in the open, you will never be able to alter it.. Secondly, letters are read by strangers. These administrators, headmasters don’t know you but your application is always under scrutiny. In the end of the day, you know who you are; what you want and they don’t know where you come from because it’s your story. Lastly, the letter you write to family, friends, schools its personal. Most letters we write we want capture the reader’s attention and interest within the first few lines. If you don’t do this the reader is most likely to skim through the letter and bin it.
One of the most thing people forget is a cover letter. This just shows laziness in most scenarios. Also be prepared to do some research beyond the company job description advertisement. That’s a BONUS and it pays in the long run. You will thank me later.
I don’t know about you but I think if I wasn’t in a job that did not involve me writing the world would have ended by now. I cannot imagine myself not putting my original ideas on paper with a pen. That’s awful!
I don’t have go into too much details but I used to keep in touch with my mom alot because I hadn’t seen her growing up. Back then life was different. We all hear that when our loved ones are gone we write some sort of letter in this case what we all known as a “Will” these days. People tend to let their family what they are leaving and who should have those belongings ranging from money, jewellery to property. We all have experienced a bad day once in a while. Some days are good and we are blessed, whilst other days we are in a state.
We are often offended when people call us by nicknames which relate to our body. The word massive or skinny one of those names that bring people down and make them loose confident. I am pretty sure no one likes it and understands that it’s an intense subject to talk about half the time. What people don’t really understand is that we love to eat as if the world is coming to an end. However, what we don’t realise is the consequences that will occur tomorrow. It might be history once the damage is done but all is not forgotten. For most people the first thing they do is to head to the pub, drown their sorrow in a pint in the hope that all will be forgotten and the day will be back to normal again.
Nicknames define us. They are those that are just way too funny to even call anyone. We got cute ones like baby, cutie, or even my coochie-coo. Twinkles is my all time favourite. It can’t be easy to give one a nickname that they can just go with the flow without complaining. However, most people know that “Cupcake “as a nickname is like a must have and it’s pretty cute too. I mean who wouldn’t? What people would like to know is where this nickname was derived. Is it that someone was way addicted into having cupcakes every single day?
It all starts when we get our first job or are pretty much new to a certain school people gives us names that we will be remembered by. This makes one feel like they have made a transition from being an outsider. For example a guy named Thomas people started calling him “Tomatoes”. Perhaps he was way into his fruits and veggies right? Or have you wondered why a little girl was named “Blue”. Well, there’s only so much we can do when it comes to try and find out the meaning behind the nickname calling. Clearly, when someone is often given an innovative nickname there’s always a story behind it. It makes us feel like it has always been there for years and this is what makes it history.
In relationship couples when they form a union they pick up endearment nicknames that they can relate to each other. It’s a way of letting others that they relationship has changed and there is a sense of ownership that comes into play. Nicknames are usually started in a social group where people are unable to call or pronounce each other names. However, they are certain sensitivities issues that we need to address when we nickname call people. Nicknames like “String-Beans” are a NO-NO hommie!
Let’s give it a rest y’all and leave it to the expert..
I think people whatever shape or size should be proud of their appearance. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Let’s embrace our looks and appearance for a change for once. MASS-I’VE or SKIN-N.Y are nasty names to give someone. Don’t judge people by their appearance because you don’t know the first thing about them and where they come from.
Thanks for stopping by and showing some love. Do stop by again for more juicy stories to come..
It’s Princess Kay’s Ultimate BB: Be there or be square !
Everyone’s talking about their BB!
We often hear people talk about how they have tried different BB creams and only to be left disappointed. Apparently that was changed by my very top best model Iman who created her very own which caters for different ethnicities. I know the feeling when you go out into shops looking for that one skin product that leaves you mind-blowing and in awe gasping for air. They say you try some and yet you lose some too. I get the feeling that you were once stuck in the middle of this skin crisis drama.
When we hear the letters “BB” we make presumptions that people are talking about either BlackBerry or the foundation cream just like “CC”. Well, in this instance I am talking about birthday bash. Have you ever wondered what happens to those people who are born on the 29th of February? I have heard stories like, I celebrate my birthday on the 1st of March or I just wait until 4 years has passed to celebrate that birthday which I would have missed.
Imagine every time there are a certain days to your special birthday you turn those years. For instance if they were 10 days left till your 10th birthday then you would be turning 10 years even if your real age was 16. How awesome will that be? Pretty, awesome huh! That would mean that none of us will ever become old. It’s like when we are moving one step to that which we all try to avoid “becoming old” we are taking a couple more back to being young again.
No-one never wants to get old. It is just one of those things that we cannot avoid. However, they are certain areas to our bodies that we can fix to avoid these problems such as getting wrinkles and getting grey hair. Well, for starters at some point in life we will get to that age when we first notice a couple of grey hair. The first thing we do off course is to scream and realise we are getting old. This is followed by immediately pressing the alarm button if we are even closer to the real thing. Nothing can’t fix a bit of greys like dying your hair and let’s not forget ant-wrinkle creams. These items were invented for a REASON.
To celebrate our big special days: 16, 18, 21, 25, 30, 40, 50 let’s do something wild and crazy just as long as we are having FUN. The list is endless but I am sure you get the drift.
I am in love with one thing apart from 3 things about my body and that’s AbS. I come from a world where anything impossible is possible. You just go to have a faith to keep you strong.
I mean it’s just so you and to sum it up its OMG. When I see a good abs that’s just to die for then you know there is something. I know 99% of the girls would DEFINITELY agree with me on this one. I got to give the thumbs to the guys for stripping of their shirts wooing us especially when they are coming out from a swim at a beach. Hats off to the boys (Y). I just want some abs not too much or too little but just the right quantity popping. Some of you might ask me: What is the definition of the “right quantity” of abs?
I just got chills down my spine. When I see someone who loves a good workout and believes in themselves then that’s the real deal right there. You feeling me kiddo. I am determined and motivated to be that person and go all the way eating healthy, training hard and going all the way like Craig David. He is totally amazing and inspiring. What I liked about him is that he has so much sheer and determination. He is that person who sets his mind to something, sticks to it and sees it through all the way.
I mean it doesn’t take a genius to see how hard he is training to have a great body. Its all right in front of you. Which sites have your eyes being oogling at? Just flip through his instagram, and you will see that, “hardwork does pay off”. So let’s hope if you are reading this I have made some good points to convince to put some more exercise into your daily life routines. Remember it’s never too late to get into that perfect sexy size 8 dress or jean. Be different & don’t be afraid to change.
I might be uber cute young girl but I am more than that. I come not only as one but as a package. #ThatsLife# There is one thing you don’t know about me. Abs is my thing & this is my year to shine. So bring it on baby! To end this short but inspiring story I say: Let’s go all the way and stay on top. I think that will be really dope:*
The word “BOXERS” was first used in 1944 and the designs came up in 1925 by Jacob Golomb. I bet we all thought that back then only MEN can become boxers. Well, these days’ things have taken a different direction and as a result of this they have changed too. Let’s take a look of some of the aspiring and upcoming boxers that are women such as Nicola Adams, Natasha Jonas and Savannah Marshall. They all have accomplished their goals and dreams because they knew what they wanted and never let anyone get in their way. From achieving bronze to winning gold medal that’s what these ladies have attained.
Besides, that’s not the real story you all want to hear right? Of course, you are now tuning yourself into some very interesting and WOMANLY gossip. So sit back and embrace yourself for some viva va-vooms.
Who says, “BOYS are the only ones that wear BOXERS?” Well, it’s not that simple. Perhaps, the person who came up with this idea knows exactly why. When one is wearing a boxer they are much freer unlike pants in these case guys I am talking to the ladies here. I recall being at a model workshop when I was talking to Pauline and she was telling how in her family there are all girls so things around the house are so much easier. I mean, she said, it feels good when they are all girls in the family and you can run around in your boxers and a vest. I don’t think the idea that my friend was portraying was crazy but it is definitely fun and I feel the exact same way.
Out there, there are some amazing and designer boxers out. There are just waiting to be worn by someone or at least anyone. Armani, Calvin Klein, Bench, Puma & Hugo Boss are some of the most amazing and well-known boxers. For starters, i think everyone needs boxers. They say good things come in small packages. I presume we should all have say 3-5 different types. I wouldn’t want to dish out my little secrets but they are really yummy. Everyone has them and loves them too.
So after talking to my best cousin Tic-tac and watching one of my favourite soap I learnt one thing: If you want something badly go get it no matter how far it is rather than hearing excuses from someone else like ABC! You may ask how this advice specific is relevant to the story but TRUST ME it is. For more stories like this sit back, take a sit back and enjoy the ride :)
