Good evening errbody!
So, I was away for most of the day and I did something I haven't done in ages... I read a novel! Or I should say I'm reading one. You have no idea how much I've missed this. Between having a busier life and trying to put up posts on the blog I've had no time to read a novel in almost two years. I've barely gone halfway and my vocabulary already feels richer.
I'm reading a book which I'm sure a lot of you have read; Americanah. I've had it for months but I was only able to get started today. For those who have read the book what's your take on it, and what do you feel about the protagonist, Ifemelu?
Can I be honest? I admire Ifemelu but I can't say I actually like her person, she strikes me as someone I wouldn't be friends with in real life. But hey, I've still got a long way to go before I'm done. Yeah, I also feel like there's a lot of Chimamanda in Ifemelu...
Ok, moving on to other things, and by other things I mean something random *covers face* (yes it's one of those days that I'm neither very inspired nor inspiring YET I itch to hear from you...) and I'm really curious to hear what you'll say. So tell me something, anything at all. Tell me how life is treating you, tell me how you wish things could be, tell me about your day. But most importantly, tell me what you think you'll be doing this time next week. Guys, you have to SPILL!
It's about 10pm, the night of Valentine... What do you have planned for that day and what do you imagine you would be doing by now? Snuggled in bed or out having dinner with le boo, drinks with your goons, or.... alone in bed wondering why you're (still) single? LOL.
Ok, I'll go first. I have absolutely NOTHING planned for next week. My boyfriend is/was meant to come into town and I'd just planned to make a nice pot of very sexy onugbu soup, replete with snails, chicken, cow leg and stock fish. Then I was thinking afterwards we'd drive round and see where the roads lead, but definitely make a stop at Cold Stone. He has his reservations about ice cream but I'm sure he would like something at Cold Stone.
But (my) life is filled with so many uncertainties...
But enough about me, what's your February 14th looking like? Come this time next week, what do you imagine to be your #CurrentSituation? Talk to me.
