GOD HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My peooooooooooooooples, it's been a very long minute since i gisted y'all on my daily dealings. A lot of things have been happening, but i've been too tied up with work to even think of posting on here. My people o, shock carried me, infact more than shock sef. I was jejely standing infront of a mirror and combing my hair on Friday night, when i noticed a strand of grey hair on my head. MO GBEEEEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOOOO!!! Omo, fashie being polished and cultured and well mannered, i screamed out. Oginni, this is serious. For why? How old is me? (Hold ur horses, all u english people, i know it's gramatically incorrect). Anyway, was the grey hair a sign that i'm stressed out or that i'm wiser? I'd like to think it's the latter sha. Whatever jere, eyin haters, the grey hair is a sign of wisdom.

My presentation was a breeze, i wasn't even nervous or anything. I guess that's what happens when u know ur stuff inside out, practice a million times and are very well prepared. Geez!!! My weekend was a blast. Just time away from all the wahala was good enough for me. Did i mention that my friend, Miss T and I both presented our research findings? They even took our pix while we were doing our thing at the podium and it's going to the local newspaper again. I'm becoming too popular o, eyin paparazzis u need to back off now (lol). Oyinbo people cannot dance for shishi o. Kai! I know i can't dance to save my life seeing that i don't even move to the rhythm of the song when i dance, u may say i'm not in the best position to talk. Hear me out o, i can talk this one. T and I would've showed them how it's done, Jamo and Naija style, but we didn't want to mess up our reputation of being "proper and serious-minded" gals amongst our classmates and professors.

It was nice to see our professors loosen up a lil' bit. Drinking, dancing and even playing pool at the bar. Kesto, is really being persistent o. The guy calls me like three times every week. I think i'll just keep him in the "friend" basket for now. Oh, i bet y'all didn't know i had baskets labelled for each category of bobos that come my way (lol). That's the truth though. Oh, i've a new toaster o, let's call him HM (short for honey mustard), that's 'cos this dude with his "sweet" mouth, can yann u some sweet nothings. I tell u, my head's always expanding bythe time i'm done talking to him or chatting with him on IM. Infact, i'm blushing now sef as i type. As for OF, he is now history in my books. That's story for another day. I've deleted his numbers from my phone, took him off my IM's, but he's still my facebook friend though. That's story for another day sha, it deserves an entire blog entry sef, but when i process all the info, i'll get back to u guys ASAP. Some guys are just not worth the stress, infact no guy is worth the stress. To think i almost let myself go, ehn. Thank you Lord is all i can say. I'm tempted to call him sometimes, but thank God for controlling me. I still think about him sometimes o, i'm not even going to front on that one mehn. Anyway, we'll talk about him some other time.

That's it for now folks, stay tuned for the OF gist soon to come. Remain blessed people.

SapphireAster said...

Niyi said...

Wo! @ no guy is worth the stress! I was going to say wo! you dissed us. But then, I am guessing your emphasis is on the word 'stress'.. lol. So, you are safe.. hahaha.(cos you are right.. don't stress yourself out.. everything will work out)

hahaha@ sweet nothings- you didn't fail to deliver on your slangs again.

Have a great day and all the best in school.

Simply Gorgeous said...

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

First off how dark is you hair. My 22 yr old sister has had hers for many yrs, and my friend ayo has had grey since his early teens. ok, I forgot, you are also a scientist, so I shant go there..lolol..

but thank God for journey mercies, you have notoriety, and is now know in your field of expertise, i like that, impressive on your resume.

These men they are not worth it oo, I will inform niyi to hook a sister up. Don't worry you know whom Im talking about lololol.

trully its a great feeling to present ones work and get commended for their hard work.

Have a super week.

Vera Ezimora said...

Ah, continue lying 2 urself o! Ur grey was not any wisdom or stress.... in fact, definitely wisdom. It was age. You don old finish. B4 u know it, menopause don come

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

@TemmyT: Egbon mi nikan sho sho. HM is just a friend o, that's how they all start off as. I didn't know it was this bad ni. They just can't dance.

@SA: Iyawo oyinbo (lol). First ko, last ni. Abeg update ur blog jere. By the way, can Em dance?

@Niyi: I stand by what i said. No guy, even the one that has put a huge blinging rock on ur finger, is worth the stress. I'm not a male basher, but it's the truth. That's why one shouldn't make a guy (even one's husband) the alpha 'n omega, 'cos he's only human and will always/ sometimes dissappoint. That's how i use my slangs in my "real life" with my paddies o. Thanks jere, hope u're doing very well too.

@SG: My in law, abeg we need to rig this thing o, OBJ style.

@Yankee NC: Thanks my dear. Amen and i pray the same thing for u. How's ur wonderful bf doing?

@Diamond: Hey blog sis, so u have grey hair too? Cool, it's a sign of wisdom like i said. As for the serenaders, what can i say? Abeg, lemme enjoy this season of my life (lol). Besides, what do u need a sewrenader for? I'll tell him o.

@MSMT: The presentation went so well, that i'm presenting it again at a different event. It's God's doing o. So, there are presentations in med school again? I thot it was during residency only.

@LOASCM: My dear TERC sista, my hair is a shade of brown and black, not fully black. Field of expertise? I don't think i have a field yet. It sure is impressive on one's resume. I felt good. My gal T and i have been asked to present our research findings again at another event, it's God o. I see u and Jaycee are at work, well done both of u. How was ur trip?

@Vera: Sharrap there! I'm wiser than you hehehehe, glad u had fun babes.

SapphireAster said...

ahh Cherub.....you just called my Boo out like that. As per his dancing skills...lets just say his moves have not been the same since I met him lol!

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

@SAFAYAH: No be u, iya shenkele fun ara e. Abeg show him how we dig it, Naija style

Biodun said...

Na u o, you have BASKETS for diff toasters, lol I jealous, I barely get any o :( Glad ur presentation went well n yeah will b expecting u read about OF soon!

Niyi said...

hahaha.. I know you are not a male basher. I figured the emphasis was on 'no one is worth all the stress'(stress being relative) and I agree with you.

lol.. I am not sure I understand what LOASCM is implying.. lol.

I forgot to mention the last time- Congratulations on your presentation. Have a great Easter Holiday.

Favoured Girl said...

Grey hair = Wisdom eh? I'll bear that in mind ..lol! Well done for breezing through your presentation.
