Hello lovelies. As you can tell, this is my first post of 2018. I remember promising myself how I was going to create more and more content for this platform come this year. Well, the only excuse I have is that January din’t come to play; at least not for me. I was on a roller- coaster that was only going down. Phew! Well, with all that said and done, am promising you no promises. I will write when I can but judging from the title of this post, am changing things a little bit this year.
Taking stock is a series that I learnt from This is Ess, although it has been here for a minute or two. Without much ado, let’s dive in;
Room for my creative juices to flow. I have been doing a number of DIY’s of late and am super proud of myself.
Pilau because it is the last dish that I learnt how to prepare. Man, you don’t want to taste my pilau.
Lots of lemon-infused water because my system needs it now more than ever.
Flawed by Cecilia Ahern. To be honest with you guys, the first chapter of this book just pulls you to it. I will go ahead and quote how it starts; ‘CHAPTER ONE; I am a girl of definitions, of logic, of black and white; remember this.’ That’s all that chapter one had to offer! What?!
To get another tattoo since the year began. I already have it figured out.
Out for more poetry accounts. They literally are the reason as to why I fill myself up even in circumstances when it was clear I wasn’t getting back up.
Bambi by Jidenna. This song has the 60’s vibe in it plus the concept just blows my mind. Am quite mad that am finding out about it a year after its release date. Where have I been all this time?
To block negative energy. Sincerely speaking, if you are an INFP, it is so easy for you to get stressed and depressed over things you shouldn’t be worrying about. Therefore, finding a way to shield myself from such is such a milestone for me.
That I could get a new phone ASAP. This one is super duper crappy.
The love that my besties have been showing me of late. I literally have the best friends EVERRRR! No lie. I can’t thank you guys enough.
For Black panther to premier this Friday. It is not that am a fan of movies but hey! First times are never that bad, are they?
Random conversations of late. The old Raisa never entertained anyone out of the ordinary. This new Raisa is quite more open-minded and accomodating. Am surprised!
Why some people have so much hate and negativity brewing in them. Like seriously, you will catch a cold from all that heaviness you keep on your chest. No one is going to make out alive. So relax and be good to the person next to you.
The scent of my new perfume that my big sissy gifted me with. Man, it smells like heaven!
The events of the past 1.5 months. I want off!
Starting a YouTube channel and letting it be my creative space where I share minor tutorials. Being the perfectionist that I am, the idea has not got an inch closer to getting implemented.
Riverdale. I am not a huge fan of movies but with this one, I can sacrifice a few hours of my day.
That I pass all the papers of the exam I sat for a few days ago. Am even surprised that I came out alive.
At the wall album I just created. I got the idea from one of Nancie Mwai’s Youtube videos. I made mine black and white and God, I have never felt frozen in time before.
To change my closet for the longest time. I know that my friends keep saying that my closet is goals, but to be sincere with you guys, I did shed off some weight over the past 2 months over things I can’t really explain. Also, I feel like my style has changed so much, meaning that I don’t have the same feel over the clothes I own.. I need to get rid of quite a number of them and purchase more.
I had so much fun creating this article. You want to see more of this taking stock series? Let me know. Love and light to you all!
