Reconnecting. . .

I spun round and round

As fast as I could

I searched far and wide

As far as I could

Something was lost

Of that I was sure

But how can u find something when u are not too sure what it is

Then last night I just stopped spinning and searching

I just stood still and reached out my hand and reconnected with the other half of me and finally all was well.

With love, to my friend.

I worry about you, my friend

I see you free falling and I worry. I know I feel a lot of guilt for where you are right now because I played a role in getting you there. Of course then I feel very self centred for thinking your issues have anything to do with me. But it’s not the guilt that keeps me running back to you whenever you call. At first I thought it was, but it isn’t. It’s what I see in you. Someone told me that he wished I could see in myself what he sees in me and now I want to say the same to you, my friend.

“I see such greatness in you, I always have, greatness worth working for. There are few people that I believe in as much as I believe in u, the first one is the man I love, the second one my brother from another mother and then there is you, another man I love.

This is why I come when you call, this is why I forgive you for the numerous times you let me down, this is why I will always be there for you.

So my dear friend I love you and I’m worried because I don’t think you are as in control as you think you are, and I don’t think you know how much you mean to me.”

Let's talk About Sex Baby

I had an interesting conversation with two of my favourite people yesterday and I decided to share it with y'all.
There we were, three beautiful Ghanaian girls hanging out one hot afternoon talking about everything under the sun and as it is often wont to, the conversation moved to SEX. in particular the myths surrounding sexual prowess and how true they really were. 'Simone' my gregarious fun-loving and surprising insightful friend of three years(and current resident expert on all things sexual ) gave a list of characteristics a good lover should possess, maybe u've heard a few;
for guys, great sexual ability have been linked to everything from having big feet, to dimples on his back, big hands and with girls the stories get even more outrageous if she's a big girl (especially a big busted girl) means she a nympho, long legs indicate a proficiency with more complicated positions, big behind means she's a fan of the rear entry position and the list goes on and on. now 'Becky' the self proclaimed virgin of the group (of course I don't believe her for a second) jumped right in with her own theories and we went on and on for hours until we had completely exhausted the topic for now.
as I sat there I realised several things
in the three years that we've been friends Simone, Becky and I have had several variations of this same conversation several times and it never gets old. And they are not the only friends with whom I discuss sex with, whether its about how often girls fake orgasms and why (yes sweetie, every girl fakes it at least once in her life) or why virginity is not such a big deal. it seems humans are very pre-occupied with the issue of sex and seriously I don't really understand why? I mean its great and all ( at least that's what I hear) but must we obsess over it so much.
that there can't really be any truth to all these tales about the keys to great sexual prowess, can there? and also what exactly does it mean to say someone is good in bed.
a lot of people have hang ups about homosexuality but are totally cool with lesbianism, seriously they are one and the same so make up your mind. personally I believe to each his own, what ever floats your boat, sister.
and finally when I have kids I hope I establish a strong enough relationship with them that they can come to me with any questions they have about sex, because I realised today that I know a lot about sex, I have no idea when I realised that the stork did not bring babies and that sex was well sex but I know I learnt none of what I know from my parents.

the end of an era.

its the end of the semester and as I pack up my things to go home I take a minute to analyse the semester. it was a very different semester and I discovered more about myself this semester, than in all the years I have spent in this university combined.
I made new friends and reconnected with some old ones.
I tried new things and though some of them I'll never try again, some I don't think I can give up.
I realised that I'm not an entirely good person but, hey! I'm not so bad after all.
when I came to school this semester I was determined to do a lot of things and though I managed to do some, there's a lot I failed to achieve and even more I realised was not as important as I thought it was.
I have grown and evolved. there are some things I've lost that I wish I could get back , but despite it all this has been a entirely different kind of semester, and I can't conclusively say that it was a horrible semester or a great one it certainly was a unique one.


All your life you wanted to try something, you felt you would be great at it.

Then the time comes and you get to do it and unlike in the movies you aren’t a natural, in actual fact you were horrible.

This has happened to me several times and now the time looms yet again. It’s understandable that I’m scared isn’t it? Is it cowardice to fear certain failure? As I embark on this journey all I want to say is I’m scared.

A reason to write

I started this blog so I could have an anonymous audience with which to go on and on about my favourite topic ... Me. My consistency or lack thereof in posting has been evidence of the fact that this is my emotional sounding board. Recently I have been suffering from writers’ block and despite the emotional turmoil in my life I couldn’t put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard as the case maybe. Then you told me you read my blog and like my writing. You told me that I had inspired you to write and became my inspiration. I thought I wanted an anonymous audience but I discovered I like knowing that someone out there actually thinks I’m worth reading. So thank you my fan and all of you who read my blog. You gave me a reason to write.
