It Might Just Be Me But...

New week, new randoms! Hey lovelies, I hope the month of July is treating you right so far. Take a look at the tidbits I've compiled for you below. Enjoy:)
  • My favorite day of the year is September 27th...it bloody rocks! I guess I should add that it's also the day I was born:)
  • I don't understand it when people say "goodbye/goodnight" on the phone and keep on talking for at least another 10 minutes! No offense, but once we've exchanged our bye-bye's I'm ready to go. 
  • I make the best fried rice...I'm serious, I really do lol
  • I really don't like it when people drink milk straight out of the gallon. It's just yucky to me. I cannot fathom drinking the milk after that. Ewww.
  • I went to high school in Caracas, Venezuela. I dreaded being there at the time but now I see just how invaluable of an experience it was. Some of the best teachers I've ever had were from my high school. 
  • I' used to love WWF wrestling as a kid.I loved all the wrestlers;  Randy Savage, Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Hulk Hogan, Mr. Perfect, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, etc. Now, you'd have to pay me to watch it.
  •  The First CD I ever bought was the Cruel Intentions soundtrack. I am still in love with all the songs, especially "Bittersweet Symphony" by the Verve!
  • I forget most details of my dreams once I wake up. 
  • I know all the words to the Nigerian National Anthem...no, I won't write them out lol
  • I don't have a bed time but I know I really should set one for myself. I usually sleep off anytime between 12 and 2am...probably the reason I feel so groggy when I wake up in the morning, smh.
  • I still haven't seen The Great Gatsby. I must rectify this ASAP, I love DiCaprio too much!     
  There you have it folks. Until next time, toodles!!

  1. What was it like in Venezuela?
    Yes! You need to see Great Gatsby asap. If you've read the novel, the movie seriously brings it to LIFE! DiCaprio's not too bad either :p
    I finally managed to watch 'Dark Girls' over the weekend - thought-provoking to say the least.

    1. I was super shy back in high school and it was like torture for me trying to make friends in Venezuela...I felt completely ostracized by my peers. Now the country itself was beautiful and I loved the food lol

      Yes I did read the novel back in high school. I need to stop delaying and go see my Leo!

      It was sad to hear the women recall the times they had been insulted and degraded growing up because of their darker skin tone. My sister made a good point that it would have been interesting to have also included light-skinned ladies in the documentary discussing what they felt like growing up and how they viewed dark-skinned girls.
