Hey guys, this weekend has been one hell of a roller coaster ride. I've been up, I've been down, I've been left and right. I've been ecstatic, I've been sad, I've been happy, I've been moody, I've squealed in laughter, I've broken down in tears, I've screamed in orgasmic delight and I've sulked in discontent. It's been all sorts, but what's important is that right now, I'm good. The roller coaster isn't over yet but I think I'm approaching a stable pace and normality would soon be restored.
Yesterday while on the part of the roller coaster that had me in tears my phone rang, it was an international call and the code had me thinking it was my elder brother so I immediately answered the phone. The minute I heard a lady's voice I was torn between hanging up and speaking. Then she called me Thelma and I knew it was someone from the blog and that minute I wished I hadn't taken the call. You see, the water works were on and I didn't know how to turn them off. The blog reader, who was a first time caller was momentarily confused. I could imagine her thinking ok, maybe calling wasn't such a good idea after all. Then she asked "Thelma are you ok?" And there was so much concern and kindness in her voice and you know how it is when you're crying and someone starts to "pity" you, you only cry more. LOL. Oh my! I felt so many ways but embarrassed was the greatest of all, worse yet was that I couldn't say any words, anytime I tried to speak more tears would come and eventually I was able to mutter a few almost incomprehensible words, telling her I'd call back.
Dearest K you sound like such a kind person and I'm so sorry about all of that. I was sooooooooo embarassed!
So, about the roller coaster, some day it would be a part of my memoir, for now it's still too fresh and things are still too raw. But I am so lucky to have a strong support system and the ability to heal fast. As Johnie Walker says; Keep Walking.
And that's about that.
Some days ago I asked a blog reader how he had been and he replied my mail saying things were good and his side hustle as a home tutor is going well. For some reason I was fascinated. It's like, when you meet someone one of the first questions you ask is "what do you do?".
I'm curious to know what my readers do. I know someone heads the legal department in a multinational, another heads Human Resources in her company, Uyi is in the movie business... Ok. I know what some of us do but I'm curious about everyone else. Guys what do you do?
If you're a student what's your course of study and what level are you in now?
Post-graduate; how's study going?
Graduate; what line of work are you in? How are things looking for your career?
Self-employed; What business do you do? Do you offer any services? Yes? Then why don't you tell us about it and maybe even advertise your business.
Unemployed; what are you doing to stay busy and keep yourself occupied, and make some bucks?
Stay at home mum?
You guys know practically everything about me, I think I deserve to know what you do, don't you?
Ps; if I haven't replied to your mail it's because I've been inundated with stuff. I'm very sorry and will attend to them soon.
