OF's gist and blog hiatus

Hello people, i'm trusting that y'all are doing well by God's grace. I've had a lot of orisirisi to do. This blog entry is going to be long so be prepared. I'll divide it into 3 parts. 1st i'll download OF's gist on here, then i'll let u in on what's been popping in my life so far and lastly, i'll drop the bombshell on why i'll be MIA until mid-August. Please, let's take a minute's silence to mourn the loss of the Virginia Tech people. I pray that the good Lord will console the families of the departed and grant unto them the fortitude to bear the loss- Amen.

OF drama: THE END

OF is this dude i had a huge crush on, and he kinda sorta liked me too (or so i thot). Check my blog archives to read more about him. From the onset of everything, i knew the dude had a hard time making up his mind. Anyway, to cut a long story short, my sister's boyfriend was OF's classmate in high school in Naija. He saw som'n i wrote on his facebook page and asked my sis if there was anything going on between OF and I. My sis, knowing the full story, told her bf what she knew. That was how my sister and her bf began some FBI and CIA cum Robocop moves. All the while, i didn't know any of these things were going on. My sister's reason for joining her bf in doing these underG runz was 'cos she just couldn't fathom why OF would be leading me on in one direction, only for him to go MIA again. Shey i told u people about our conversation at the beginning of the year, early January to be precise? I remember telling all of una, so check the archives. My sister thot there just might be another girl in the pix or that he had a gf in his zones. What they found out was that around the time OF was talking to me, he was also talking to someone else. It so happens that this babe knows my name and i think has seen my pix somewhere, somehow. They think OF told the babe about me after she discovered som'n fishy was going on. That's the koko of the oro. My thing is, i'm not interested in all these drama, 'cos God knows i've a lot of things on my plate as it is. For a while, even before i heard the gist from my sister, i had stayed clear of OF. I fashied his side, deleted his number from my phone, took him off my IM list and all. Then it dawned on me that i was kinda holding a grudge against someone who had no clue. So to prove to myself that it wasn't so, i sent him a text on Easter day, part of a mass text message. So OF's history in my books. Another one bites the dust, life goes on. Oh well!

WHAT'S NEW?

It's still the same old me. Helped plan this event at school that was a blast. Thank God everything went well. I had fun and so did the others that came. Uzzy Buzzy, i know u're reading this, abeg no vex about me calling u out like that. I'm thanking baba God in advance for the research job he has provided for me. I know he has done it already, so no shaking. 26 more days to grads. My parents are coming from Nigeria in 2 weeks and my big aunt. It's going to be fun with all of them. People are trying to hook me up left, right and center o. My friend Tom is trying to hook me up with his friend. I had the opportunity to speak with the guy (by the way, Tom had praised this guy to the highest heavens) on Friday night. Let's just say it was a total fiasco! First thing, he called me at midnight. I mean, i entertain calls that late, but not from people i don't know. Next, he's telling me he wants to see me the next day. He didn't ask if i'll be free to meet with him or anything, maibe (maybe) he expects me to drop everything just 'cos he wants to see me. Of course, trust yours truly to put him in his place. Last thing that broke the camel's hunch back was when he said u can call Tom next weekend so we can meet up 'cos Tom knows how to reach me. Last time i checked, u should be the one chasing and trying to be on ur best behavior to make an impression. He came across as arrogant and conceited. Immediately he hung up, i called Tom to give him the low down. Tom didn't pick up.
Uncle Daltono i know u're reading this o. I still dey wait for the guy u bin dey tell me about. I've a feeling that this ur guy is correct, 'cos u don't move with just anybody. Well done o for putting me on "is coming" the last time. No be ya fault. Kesto is still being persistent there o. Calls me all the time, but sometimes he just doesn't geddit (get it) , i swear. The bloke is trying too hard and it's not as if i'm giving him a hard time o, but the connection's just not there.

GOING MIA

Eyin people, i'm taking my MCAT exam August 6. You know what that means? I'm going to dedicate myself 100% to it, 'cos the money i'm dropping for the prep class and registration, no be small dough at all and besides, i ain't got no time for games. God willing, after grads in May, i'll study like my life depended on it. First things first, i'll be relocating from my zones to either NY or NJ. The library will be my second home, coffee and red bull will be my friends. Please, include me in ur prayers o. I don tell my father in heaven wetin i want, now it's my turn to put in my 2 cents to prepare. I may check out ur blogs and leave comments, but will not be blogging. Serious studying begins May 21. That's it for now folks. Till i come ur way again, remain blessed under the protection of the Almighty.

Really its so very very sad, to think I used to complain how boring blackburg was and how there was nothing to do, and for this to happen, I can't seem to get my head around it. Im dissapointed though with the way the police handled the information, but I guess they didnt want to raise panick, but still we deserved to know.

This morning especially it was on my heart to pray for the youth and I know I was lathergic, but I did say a small prayer, and to go into uni and find this on my campus, this is unheard of. First I thought it was joke, because we've had a few bom scare, but to be on lock down, and then students and faculty dying is beyond belief.

I just ask the Lord to comfort us all now, and show us how to deal with this situation we are faced.

Oiur prayers indeed goes out to the parents and loved one.
