Taking Stock – Six

Making: Some major decisions in my life. I feel like I am always doing this though lol, so lets scratch that, I’m making major PLANS in my life. That sounds more concrete because it means those decisions will actually pan out. So I hope…

Cooking Eating: So much yummy Indian food! Currently in India visiting my mother and I am cheating on my diet everyday with all this rich and spicy food everywhere:)

Not a picture taken by me! But it shows you the beauty of Indian food:)

Drinking: Lots and lots of water. This Indian heat isn’t sparing anyone and I thought I was escaping the sun by leaving Nairobi for a few days goodness! Craving my ultimate guilty pleasure, the tropical fruit smoothies from Artcaffe, simply bliss!

Reading: Thrive by Arianna Huffington and loving it, book review coming up soon!

Wanting: A new phone, why won’t anyone hear my iPhone 6 cries??:(

Looking: For a really good paper source. Wanna get back to designing stationery and I need really good quality paper. Any suggestions?

Playing: With my hair, which needs to be done like asap once I get home. Braids should not last this long haha

Wasting: A lot of time watching Gotham. I’m done with that show, it has failed me.

Sewing Creating: Many more vision boards in my head than I should be doing on paper lol.. Need to jot all these ideas down before the disappear.

Wishing: I could make everything I want to happen in the next few months happen without any repercussions… If wishes were horses though.

Enjoying: This relaxing mini-break in India, was def much needed!

Waiting: For lunch. Food in india is tres amazing, like I said… been eating way too much

Liking: The progress my mother is making on her recovery, God is really something else:)

Wondering: How to come up with the best scholarship essay yet, I need some tips… Gradschool is calling.

Loving: The philanthropic nature of Indians in general. There is hope for humanity after all

Hoping: To get back on track with my fitness regime when I get back home. My accountability partner @nassstro1 says I have been super slacking lol, I’m sorry!

Marvelling: At the growth of so many of my dear friends in regards to their professional and personal life and I am in awe of them. Kudos to you all, you know who you are:)

Needing: I not only want a new phone, I am in desperate need of one. My poor phone is dying out on me gradually. I should start an #Iphone6Fund lol

Smelling: Gauze and methylated spirits… I’ve been living in a hospital for the past week, don’t judge me

Wearing: Capris, a blue tee and a striped sweater

Following: The TVs in this hospital are constantly tuned to CNN so every morning I have breakfast watching the Amanpour show with Christine Amanpour and I love her as a journalist. Never watched her show before and these past few days have made me an Amanpour groupie all of a sudden. As a fellow journalist, it’s only right that I began following her after watching one show. She’s awesome.

Noticing: Once again I shall speak on the greatness I have around in form of the friends I have. Young people taking charge of their lives and doing what they want and doing it super well. It’s a great thing because its assuring of the fact that our future has great leaders in its midst, great thinkers and innovators alike as well.

Knowing: That despite everything going on, all will be well. That is what I tell myself all the time especially when things feel like they are the end all and be all… all will be well. God never gives us something we cannot handle.

Thinking: About writing a short book, like a short story of sorts. It’s been a while since I did any fictional writing, let’s see if I can pull together about 6000words?? haha.. This writer turned editor/reporter is scared. But nothing is impossible. I shall share it here once it is ready and you all can give me feedback on whether I should get back on the fiction train or stay at the editor’s desk lol

Feeling: Hungry, lunch is taking too long to show up

Bookmarking: Nothing of late but I’m back to perusing through Stumbleupon for inspiration purposes, try it out too, you never know what you may stumble upon there haha(pun fully intended).

Opening: The page to this amazing event, Chanda Chema where I should be seeing you all on March 14th! PS: I shall be selling my cupcakes there, come through for some!

Giggling: At some of the comments my mother makes lol… She is one satirical and hilarious woman.
