A pink slip Blog Party time Entertaining really isn't so bad after all. I finally decided to have a few friends over to the new place (did i ever mention that the walls in my apartment are also pink?) heheheheh. So I told everyone to come over, and i'll provide food drinks and laughter. Turns out I provided the food and drinks, and the tv provided the laughter! It's really amazing what people will laugh at just because they are in a crowd. You can watch a movie by yourself and feel very little 'emotion', but watch that same movie with others... the extended laughing..(so much so that u miss about half the movie just by laughing too hard and talking! and then the only person who really wants to see the movie and is paying attention has to repeat what everyone else missed, and then everyone misses more of the movie!) vicious cycle! heheheh and you know I can't be having a lime and there not be drama... last minute shopping, I get the groceries delivered to my home... however the delivery man is on an extended lunch, and my groceries get here after my guests, and after I have already tuned into plan B. Good thing i had something to cook, and water in the fridge! nothing like some good mauby! the non-bajans, well, they managed! lol what a potential disaster! egad. I've already warned my friends that this cooking think will not be a habit of mine! So this occasion is something to write in your diaries and look back upon and remember! To all those folks who were not invited... don't take it personal... the apartment is only so big, or rather, so small. And to those folks tuning in from the homeland and over and away... wish you coulda been here too. :s
Blondes Really Do have More Fun I dyed my hair. Its a really nice colour. Not really blonde but very very light brown. It matches my eyes now:)
Last night I was bored...so I agreed to timekeep for this drinking game called centurion. My flatmates dragged me into it. I usually dont like to hang around cheesey drunk guys. Theyre too loud and obnoxious. But my gosh it was so much frickin fun! It was cool to hang out with different folks for a change. It helped get rid of some sterotypes I had of some people. well anyways... im blonde and somewhat content ade
I know at least one other person experiences this phenomenon. It's like one minute youre one way and next minute youre not. The split personality thing can really get to me. It's difficult in the whole relationship thing. one minute you like having someone around then the next its like..ok too much of you dont come around anymore. well anyways. I was in a great mood earlier. I think it had to do with the fact that id studied and id gone jogging as well. Now Im no longer in that good mood. i'll get over it.
Tomorrow I dye my hair. Im desperately searching for entertainment. Nothing too drastic but enough for a noticable difference.
dont you hate when people assume youre sleeping with someone if you spend any amount of time with them. people are so dumb!
So the PNM won the elections last night/ this morning. For those not familiar with the "politics" of Trinidad the PNM is the "black party" I dont know whether Im happy they won because the other party was skimming nuff money when they were in power or whether it's innate in me to back my own people. I use the term "own people" loosely. It's like this place is turning me into a bitter prejudiced person. I was listening to sensible radio this morning. I managed to find this radio station between my alternative station and my reggae station. Radio chutney or something like that. Needless to say the majority of the callers were of inidan descent. They were furious that this party had won. They used terms like "those people" when describing the new party in power. Talking of the oppression that they will face now. Im sorry...I cant sympathise when 90% of medical sciences class of 2005 is of indian descent. The people that make decisions in the business sector are also of that ethnic background. So why are they complaining? Maybe its unfair of me to make such comments when I just arrived here and I dont really know whats going on. But from what i see there's little oppression of the inidan race going on here.
I was also talking to this guy who descibes himself as a revolutionist. he has the vision that one day the black man will empower himself etc etc etc. I dont know if its just me and my shallow self.... but Im a results oriented person. if I cant change the world in my lifetime then why should i bother to try to influence the thoughts and actions of others? I just have one life to live and I think that I will try hard not to be prejudiced and to work hard and make the best of myself. Thats a chore in itself so I cant imagine trying to uplift an entire race.
Well anyways thats my thought for the day. I hope I didnt offend anyone with it. I try not to think this way but this society is making it extremely hard.
my brain is frying...to much thought for one night ade:)
Oh yeah dont yah frickin hate it when youre tryin to be nasty and dislike people for no reason and they turn around and be nice to you??? it sucks ass!! cause then youre the one with the problem and theyre just chillin' above all that mess. im so female sometimes it hurts! all that cattiness. tsk tsk
too early for results but it looks like its another close one.
| went to Poison Band launch last night and I realised that my priorities are all wrong. I saw a costume that must be mine but the only problem is its 500bds...and thats a cheap one. its lilac.....my colour!!! but its almost depressing when you see the costume on the models. its like...i will never have that body...ever!! trini women are my inspiration. my ass went jogging today. Now i havent had any complaints but im sure it wont hurt me to lose 10 pounds:) self improvement is always good
im hotter than pepper (self praise is no praise remember that":)
I went out on Friday night and theres something I have to admit...albeit grudgingly. Trinidad has a very high concentration of attractive females. (no Im not lesbo:P) Its like hows a girl like me supposed to compete?? The Sean paul concert was OK. Nothing to scream about. I got to go backstage but I didnt get to meet him. Being a groopie looks like too much work. But those dancers!! If I could move like that. It was beauty in motion. Gorgeousness! If only...:) I had a good night though. I got off campus and I got to see people that weren't university students. I sooo needed that. It gets claustrophobic seeing the same folks over and over again. So I traded in two hall concerts for a Poison band launch. An evening off calypso and its not even carnival. heavenly
