Procrastination has come to an end. First blog post

Is anyone a victim of procrastination? EVERYONE. ME. LOL. I say I want to do so many things but never end up doing it. I’m pretty sure anyone living on this planet called earth has this same disease. Yes, I sometimes think I’m sick because I keep procrastinating about many important things in my life. When I say important things, yes it’s the important things in life we keep at the side accumulating dust in a dark room somewhere at the back of our brain. Yes, a dark room filled with dark secrets. Ha. 

Blogging has been something I have always wanted to do. Thank fully wordpress is helping me bring it to life. I want to share so many experiences, life teachings, mistakes , etc using this platform so that I can help people in some sort of way. To know that they are not the only one going through difficult things and that they can learn from my life, my mistakes, hopefully teach them things that they never could have learnt about different issues. I am someone who gies online to loom for answers when it comes to relationships, love, etc. So hopefully I do the same for people who go online to search for things that they don’t really understand. Trusting that I am able to impact people I’m a positive manner. Not to criticise or judge but to share my world with people all over the world.

Game of thrones season 7. Winter is here!!!!!!!

Season 7 of game of thrones is finally coming to life. I have been waiting. The wait was surely really long but exciting. I can’t wait to see what this season has in store. The blood shed. The mystery unravelling. Who will die. Who will stand tall. The white walkers. Oh my goodness. I’m so pumped up. 

I started watching game of thrones after season 1-6 already had been aired on tv. So I had all the full season to watch without having to wait for episodes to episodes. I was so addicted that I watched it all in 3 days. You can’t believe how long each episode is in each season. But,  me being a very impatient person. I sat in my room for 3 days. Day and night I just watched. Glued and stuck to the storyline. I only got up to pee and poop. I had my food. Water. Everything in my room lol. It was such amazing days. 

Game of thone is an addiction. The characters that it has. The story line. The big personalities.  The buid up. The suspense. The fighting. The swords. Betrayal. Murder. It’s just the best ever series after friends. Though friends is legendary to me but game of thrones is different and getting to legendary or already is. 

When people tell me they haven’t watched got series I just got nuts and wonder why? Because they are seriously missing out on one of the historical tv series ever. 

I know for sure that season 7 is going have so many answers. But,  I fear there would be more suspense. I can’t contain myself. I can’t wait to see the characters grow and fufill their potential. Sadly I have college. I won’t be able to go a full marathon on this season. But I’m sure going to start watching it. The wait was really like it’s been decades already.

Are you a got fan.? If you are. I know you are giggling and having butterflies already lol.

Is Jon snow going to sit on the throne? Who is dying this season? Is sansa going to betray her brother? The starks are definitely going to go big this time. I hope so. I’m excited!!!!!!

In the face of the seven, I declare the wait is finally over. Over!!! !!!

Jon snow vs the white walkers. What will happen?

You lick soaps?Β 

Well, most of the time when people ask me. Tell me something crazy about you ? Or what is the craziest thing you do? Sometimes when people say, tell me something wierd? I blurt out saying I lick soaps. They look at me in surprise to see if I was joking or not. Though I have kindoff accepted that I have this wierd, scary habit. I still tell people so I can see how they react. But, the reactions are always similar. People say that’s crazy. I am crazy That’s wierd. Some dont shy from saying I am wierd. 😐😐😐😐😐 Some people just don’t understand it or have never heard of it.

Most of the time, I tell people so I can have someone say hey! Girl I do the same crazy thing. Like damn I want that so bad. To meet someone who has this same wierd habit. It all started when I was young, while bathing I found myself licking the soap on my face and from then on there was no looking back. Then, I realised I was getting addicted. When I smell a really flowery lemony flavored soap. My antennas start gigling.  The next thing I know I’m licking it. Thankfully I don’t eat it whole. I just like having a little rub on my tongue and then it goes on from that. As I got older. I stopped using the soap I used for bathing. I kept a special soap I used just for licking. Mostly I found myself licking soaps that were green in color. I don’t know why. Maybe it had lemony flavour.  But I couldn’t resist it. I know, I talk about soap like it’s some Ice cream. But damn,  it taste good. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

The time I started thinking it’s really wierd was when people I told started telling me it’s dangerous. You could die from it. It could kill me. People felt it was wierd and crazy. I didn’t meet anyone who had anything crazier than this. I told people so I get to know if other people did things like this. The only close enough habits were they liked the smell of wet sand. Which I do too. Loving the smell of old book. I do have that same habit. And also the smell of petrol. But no one eating things them though lol.
 


I researched on it and discovered that it was a addiction called pica syndrome.  Some people told me that maybe I lacked calcium which is kindoff true. But, knowing there was a name of this addiction made me rethink on what could happen to me. It also said that most pregnant women have this same urge. But I’m not pregnant and never have been so why do I do this?. Then I came across stories of people. One made me scared about a boy who could not eat anymore because consuming lots of soap had eaten up the passage through which food goes into your body. Then I read about the chemicals used in making them. Very dangerous to the body.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

So, now I have stopped keeping soaps in my bag for purposes. I have put aside all the ways I could get tempted to do so. I keep reminding myself that it is dangerous. But, I wish there were soaps that were eatable that would taste the same as the soaps I have and wouldn’t be dangerous. It would just be amazing then I don’t have to worry about dying. 😍😍😍😍

If anyone does this or has a friend who does this. Hmm I’d like to know you lol. Because I feel so alone in my wierd habit. I haven’t met anyone who does. It would be nice to talk to someone who feels this same. Then we could giggle and laugh about all the crazy, funny things we do to not lick soaps.

#This one is one of my favorite. 😍😍😍

I have hidden this soap far away from my reach. Somewhere I feel will take so much of work to get to it. That’s how temping it is.πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“

That embarrassing moment when……

I’m pretty we have all been there, where you see someone you know…could be a classmate, a co-worker, an acquaintance, your friend’s friend who you got introduced to few days or a month back etc etc. Yeah, that moment when you see a person of that relation at a bar or at school, in church, on the street, at a party. And you keep thinkin to yourself, do I say hello or not. Will the person ignore? I want to time myself right so I don’t get into any snubbing embarrassment or what if the person is a snub? What if they might not recognise me? Yeah. A friend of mine told me I think too much but everyone does. 

I recently ran into a ex-classmate in school. So normally we say hello to eachother. But, this time around. I was with a friend and she was approaching me. I decided to say hello not to come across as a snub. I waved at her and our eyes met. She then walked past me. And I was so embarrassed. Though she was on the phone but I kept thinking our eyes met. You saw me!!! Like show some acknowledgment girl!!! I said hello just to be polite and you ignore!!! This is one of the reasons I hate saying hello to people and then sometimes I am accused of being attitude-ish. I later on told a guy friend of mine who knew her and he was like why do girls think too much about little things and I’m like you don’t know how it feels when someone does that to you in public. It is like the whole world stopped and stared at your awkward moment. They noticed it. They made fun of you. They saw you being ignored. Haha. I guess I exagerated that a bit. But,  yeah it does feel that way. Like as the person ignored you everyone around stared right into your eyes. Like pause, stare, awkward, back to reality. 

Anyways, later on I met that same girl on my way out of collehe and she called my name and said hello! Grace. How are you? And I was like I’m fine. So,  I guess either she didn’t see me and I thought she did or she realised she ignored me, made up for it. Either ways I felt like I overreared in my head lol. 

Later on, I explained to the other friend of mine about the incident and she narrated her bad experience. So, hers was pretty much embareasing.  One of her claas mate was at a party she went to. As usual we try to show that we are not snubbish. She decided to wave at her classmate who was walking right towards her. She smiles and waved a hello and the girl was smiling & waving back. But, only a matter of few seconds the girl walked past her and then she realises she was smiling& waving at someone behind her. My friend was with her boyfriend. She felt so embarrassed to the core. 

So I guess there are some people who are snubs. Sometimes, they might just not have seen you or are preoccupied with things in their head. Because my bestie then would do the same thing. I would be waving at her and she wouldn’t wave back even though I was few distance in front of me. I would get pissed and tell her she was a snub. But, then she explained that she couldn’t see properly if someone was far off from her. She wore glasses. So from then on I just didn’t wave at her. I just walked towards her direction and meet her at a close point. 

Do share your experiences if you ever had an embarrassing encounter like this. πŸ˜πŸ˜€I would love to hear some to know that maybe I’m not wierd to think so much about stuff like this. Im pretty sure I’m not. I’m sure many of you guys have funny ones to tell. 

Things other than the physical, The spiritual world. S01e01.

It all started with words like “you know there are beings watching us that we cannot see,  but they surely see us”. My friends and I began to talk about different spiritual encounters at 2:00 at night. Trust me it isn’t a good idea to talk about spirits and ghost late in the night. After having a splendid evening at a really awesome place.  We got home,  changed into our sleeping clothes and since it was our sleepover after a long while.  We decided why not spend the night talking about spiritual beings ( well we didn’t plan it,  things led to that conversation ). Things that are unseen.  Those eyes that watch us in the dark while we sleep.  I guess we are crazy.  

Someone like me who runs away from horror movies. That conversation wasn’t what I wanted to be talking about at midnight. While braiding one of my friends hair.  We began sharing scary incidents that we have come across or have heard people talk about to our hearing. 

My friend began sharing one of spiritual encounters where she and another friend were walking past a well at night. The place was quiet. Not much people around. The only source of light was coming from the moon which was dim. So, during that time her friend was on her period. Like they say, they say……spirits get attracted to people on their period because that time you are all bloody. Sounds scary right? That didn’t go well down my spine. She was like you should never go to places where they say a spirit roams around or go to a grave yard. 

Well you won’t catch me doing that. I’m not a freak. Though I had a friend at school who loved going to the grave yard. Like on a picnic streak. All I was thinking is. Alert!! Alert!! This girl is possessed!! Stay away!! Because she did try to invite me. Which I immediately told her a big capital NO.

So, back with the story. She saw a ghost at the back of her friend. My brain was already having crazy imagination. Literally drawing out what the ghost would look like. How tall the ghost was at the back of her friend. The face. Well, if you have such a brain. It’s a pain in the ass. I’m like I don’t need so much detailing Brain!! I already know how a ghost look like. After, she saw the ghost, she told her friend don’t look back and just Run!! Run!! And that’s how they escaped. I swear if I was the friend it wouldn’t have ended that well because I’d look back. First mistake. Get traumatised if the ghost decided to show its full form to me. And then just stand in shock and fear. Then put my friend in danger of seeing the ghost eat or drink my soul out of my body. Like they say curiousity killed the cat.

This is was one of the scary stories we were tellong eachother. Then, my other friend remembered an experience too. She was like her dad got possessed by a bald whit guys spirit who committed suicide at one of the Apartments down their building. Since,the guy was bald he kept pullin out her dad’s hair. So, they had the spirit removed by a spiritual old man. Yes, I assumed a old man. Because most people who do that are kinda old and have lots of grey hair. 

But, one of the stories or myths that stood with me till date. Even though we spoke about conjuring scenes and other crazy scary things we have heard our parents tell us. This one was what stayed with me. I’m a person who gets up at 3 or 4 at night. I don’t know why. But its like if I sleep early at 10:00. I get up at 2-3 at midnight. Then get so scared and try to go back to sleep. Which isn’t that easy. What I try to do is sleep late at 2 or 3 so I wakeup straight in the morning. 

So the scary talk was that when you get up at midnight. Ok. Alert!! Are you sure you want to read this? Like you have a choice now to either decide not to read or get traumatised like I did. I wish i had a choice that night to not hear it though. Well, if you are curious go ahead.

If you get up at midnight. It means a ghost is standing right besides you and staring down at you. 

You basically get up because of the constant stare. So. Yeah. That scares me everytime. I always time myself right so I don’t get up at midnight to be reminded of this scary talk.

Stay tuned for more scary talks. 

Review on 13 reasons why series.

I have been waiting to write a tell-all of what I think about the famous series, 13 reason why. I knew I had to watch it when everyone around me kept talking about how it made them emotional. How they loves the suicide part of the series ? Yes, a friend of mine can’t stop talking about how hannah killed herself so gracefully. My eyes literally popped up in surprise like how does suicide become graceful ? Or how does someone slitting her hand and bleeding to death was so beautifully enacted.  I just can’t get my head wrapped around that thought process though.

The series begins with clay entering school. Posters , flowers and the atmosphere talks about the tragic death of hannah baker. Someone who I think was so difficult to understand. Was she like a normal teenager ? Yes, I guess but her path was really rough and she was a naive little girl. I’m someone who cries in movies. I literally love movies that make me cry because then I feel It impact me. Such movies are considered legendary like titanic, the notebook, passion of christ, etc.

 But, for some reason I didn’t cry much. Even when hannah died in a pool of her own blood. I think I was a little disconnected from Hannah because of the way she rejetted clay who loved her. She wanted the attention of the wrong people. She was constantly getting into trouble. I don’t condole bullying and yes I get the story line. People need to be mindfully the words they speak, how they treat other people, the actions they make, the way they live their lives should never be at the cost of someone else. It just takes one word, one action, one situation to drive someone to commit suicide.

Maybe, I just didn’t think that all those things shouldn’t encourage you to kill yourself.  My heart didn’t go with the fact that she killed herself. Many people in today’s world go through so much but don’t take their lives because they just got stronger. Maybe at the end of the episode I expected hannah to become stronger, to rise above the situation, to finally find happiness within, to stop seeking people’s love, to mature and grow. But, I didn’t get that. 

Instead she committed suicide. She gave up. She didn’t get stronger. She lost her life. And I couldn’t cry. 

The producers no doubt did a good job in bringing to light different situations that students go through in college. The constant fight to not be invincible. The betrayal of friends. Being bullied. Being humiliated. The college staffs not being attentive enough to tackle such things before a student loses their life. So I get the part where the bakers sue the school for negligence. But, can a school try to be all attentive? Maybe yes or no. But, they could try to. 

But, I believe that as a part of media. People who make movies, series, songs etc have a huge responsibility to the media consuming society as to what they put out there for viewing. I feel like the issue of suicide should have been put together more carefully. Due to the fact that there are teenagers out there that believe in whatever they see through the mind. People who aren’t strong enough to create opinions of their own and are easily influenced by the contents of the media. Yes, the series kindoff justified commuting suicide which is what I didn’t agree to. Recently, a teenager committed suicide and enacted the same things hannah baker did. Which is to tell you how powerful a message could be if put together by a media platform. Though it was fictional but it gave a reality to many young people out there.

So, to all the Hannah bakers out there. Please don’t take your life. I want you to know that you are not alone in your suffering. When faced with such bully. Kindly confide in your parents. Dont give up on them because they love you. Know you are loved. You don’t need gratification from people that don’t make any difference in your life. You have a bright future. Nothing is ever permanent. You will get through it. You are strong and not weak. You are an amazing person. Most of the people that are successful and are great have been through ridicule, bullies, shameful incidents but what matters is they got out of it and became great. You have the abilit to be great. Don’t give up on yourself.

My friend’s possessive boyfriend.

I feel like it has been a while I blogged. Though I know it has just been two days that I didn’t post anything, due to so many latest things happening in my life. But anyways life has been great I guess. 
So, one of my best friends, someone I have been close to for a long while. Upto 4 years, right from the start of college. We have been really tight buddies including  a group of three other close pals. We meet up, have fun, chill at eachothers home, we have had awesome sleepovers and nights out together. That is how close our gang is.  Recently, one of my besties started dating a guy. You could say it is probably her first ever relationship. Yes, I know it is exciting and a beautiful thing to finally meet someone and build a relationship together with that person.

Relationships are amazing and brings the best out of people. But, all I can say is that relationship has changed her. She has gotten so wierd. Her boyfriend is so possessive and controlling that he gets angry when she spends time with us ( Her friends that have been with her before him).


 

When he calls, it doesn’t ring for one second and she rushes to pickup the call. She says he would get angry with her. We have tried telling her that it is wrong allowing him control her life. He gets suspicious of her. Doesn’t trust her. She basically can’t tell him she is spending the day with her friends, he would flip and get jealous or angry. 


Yes such an insecure guy!!! On her birthday, we and her cousins were at her place and helping celebrate her birthday. He fought with her on the call and was so selfish. (she got bitten by a dog that day and when she told him crying on the call explaining why she couldnt talk to him on the call at that moment, all he could say is she was faking it). I seriously don’t understand what sort of person he is. I’m sad that my friend is being taken for granted. We as her friends have tried spelling out this bad behaviour but she is so blinded and manipulated. 

She keeps saying he reads the bible. They pray together. 

But, that doesn’t make his behaviour acceptable. A person who loves you wouldn’t treat you that way. Also, someone who follows God’s way wouldn’t act that way either. 

A relationship is not one way. It has to be two people helping to improve eachother not a fight for control or one dominating the other partner. 

I have never seen her change so much in the span of time she has been with him. Change is okay when it is good but change from good to bad is just not the right kind of change I was expecting. The thing is she says every relationship is not perfect but you have to make it work when you love the person you are with. Yes no doubt, no relationship is perfect but it takes two people to make it work. All I see is one person taking advantage of the other person all in the name of love. The relationship is working all at the cost of her hapiness. I went to her house recently,  she was just talking to him 24/7. She hardly had time to talk to me. She didn’t seem happy. She didn’t eat for 2 days when I stayed at her place. She locked herself in her room. I literally became sheldon from big bang theory when he knocked on penny’s door, the only difference is my penny didn’t respond and just stayed indoor. At some point, I was really scared but felt helpless because her mom and dad weren’t home ( they went on a vacation). 

Now, all I see is someone being oppressed and isn’t strong enough to detach herself from this toxic relationship.

 

As a friend I will try to be there for her and tell her the truth always. But at the end of the day, it is her decision to make. I hope and pray that God gives her the strength to see the truth behind all his lies. It hurts to feel that she is distant. 😦 😦 😦
How does one help a friend in such a situation? Because I want to help her get out of it.  If only she would accept my helping hand.

My addiction to clash of clans.Β 

Clash of clans is one game that I have been glued to for the past 3-4 months. It’s basically waking up, checking on my clan,retrieving my golds/elixir,taking my troops on a battle mission, clear my village so I could get some gems, make sure to attack a village within my strength, win or lose ( I most definitely love to win lol ), put another set of troops loading, till then I wait. Then the same process again and again.

 

For those who don’t play clash of clans, it might sound boring. Like naahhh. I couldn’t do that. But those who do, yes you guys, you know what the addiction feels like. I tell my friends ( girls and boys included) , I would have thought that this was kind off like a boys dream game. Like go kill some people, steal some golds,  destroy a village….. pretty badass right?  But to some of my guy friends. They don’t get my addiction. They just wonder what joy I get in it. And I’m like always super pumped up to talk about it with all my strength. 

I know there are many, like billions of people around the globe that play clash of clans.  But I haven’t really met any of them yet. But, I know that I could chat up with them though on the game, sadly some contents aren’t really up to my taste. But yeah. I wish I had more friends that loved Coc just like I do. Are there any clash of clans addicts too. If you are. Holla up here. Haha. Would love to hear about your addiction and feel the mutual excitement that we share for this awesome awesome awesome game. 

I told a friend the other day that I never felt more empowered like how I feel when I destroy some really great villages. Steal a huge amount of gold from them. Get the complete star (3 stars). And feel awesome lol. It just makes me feel badass. For those who haven’t played it yet. Trust me once you do, you are never going to stop. I’m pretty surprised that though I’m not a patient person ( you have to be with coc ). I am still addicted. Because I love this game so much, I’m really patient when it comes to the troops loading ( it doesn’t really take forever, but yes takes time). At first, I would get impatient and use up all my gems but then I realised I nedeed the gems to get more builders. Hahaha. If you are not a coc player…you might just be wondering what the hell she saying. Well coc rocks. I’m going to keep on playing till eternity. 
Have a nice day. #postaday

        Finally barbie dolls we can all relate to.Β 

        Yes !!!!! Im so thrilled !!! Though i’m too old to play with barbie dolls anymore but as a child I didnt really care or saw it as anything except a doll that i could dress up and do crazy childish things with. This takes me back to the silly stuff i did. Well we all have been there ( I actually fed my dolls thinking they could eat , now that i think of it i was really wierd to think that way lol ). I wish they had thought about this before. Instead of creating one certain standard of beauty which was western looking. This definitely was the birth of stereotypes. Not having to see yourself in a barbie collection for sure gave the views that your look was inferior. With the media always glamourising this same notion too. Creating a doll for young kids need to be thought about with serious thoughts. Well, I must say I am pretty happy with the new diverse barbie collection. We can finally all relate to barbies because they don’t just have skinny bodies or straight hair anymore.  Yes, I have curly hair. And yes I am thrilled to see a barbie with curly hair. 

        A barbe with an afro. A chinese looking barbie. Basically they have done a great job. Now our future children can pick up barbies that look like them and feel beautiful to be the way they are. 

        The collections of barbie include all shapes, hair color, hair texture, facial features etc etc. Way to go people !!! How can we forget ken dolls who look just absolute perfection. The nerd ken, the boy-next-door ken, the dark skin/so-hot ken doll, the corporate ken doll etc etc. Yayyayayayyayayyayay.  I don’t know why I’m so excited. But yeah. I am excited. I feel like going to buy all of them. Well, I probably wouldn’t but I am tempted lol. 

        Beauty is not in the shape you carry. Beauty is not in the color you have. Nor the hair type. It is within. And I’m glad that barbie is changing it’s views too and encouraging beauty in diversity.
