2009 highlights

2009 was an amazing year for me! I am actually kinda sad to see it end, but such is life.

I am one of the lucky few people in the world who has two birthdays, the one on my birth certificate and my actual birthday. My dad got it wrong by a day so legally I age one day earlier than I am meant to. Anyhoosmu, on birthday number one I went for a house party in my hood, and on my real birthday I got to kick it with people close to my heart at Westlands. It was awequitealot and I got drunk for the first time ever 🙂

March 13th was my last day in University and I cannot even begin to describe the euphoria!!! That marked the beginning of some serious partying which set the pace for the rest of the year.

On the last week of March my friends and I went to Mombasa and it was the best trip ever!! We went by train which was my first time and I loved it. The trip involved daily trips to Bobs, and the beach, sleeping on pool decks I think i slept on a bed like once. I got to use a tuk tuk and boda boda for the first time, went to Club Lambada the hottest club in East Africa in my opinion and Casablanca where my male friends got hit on by an Izzo look-alike lol. Mombasa Raha.

My beautiful nephew was born in March and he is such an adorable blessing in our lives.

April was the month I discovered Eric Wainaina is not overhyped. He is an absolutely great performer.

In May I got a job which was quite a blessing considering how fast I got it.

May also marked the start of Rugby Mania in Nairobi from Under 21 World Cup to Floodies. Those activities kept my weekends busy, great place to drool and socialise, oh and watch sports lol. Floodies Finals was an awesome night. Harlequins hosted a slamming party, the music was oh so deadly danced till my feet hurt with my friends, and finished the partying off in Westlands.

The month of June is synonymous with the Tusker Safari Sevens now its Safaricom Safari Sevens? I wonder How it will be next year.. This year I was so ready for Sevens, got there by 9am, got great seats at the Tusker Stand for the first time ever. I actually watched the rugby which was a first for me. For the first time this year I went on both Saturday and Sunday. I have never attended a sevens final so I was so blessed to see Kenya win. I made many new friends that day, and it was quite an experience 🙂

I graduated in July 17th, that day was definitely LEGENDARY. The ceremony wasn’t so boring, and I had an amazing party, so many people showed up, big up to all of them for sharing that experience with me. I also must say congratulations to the Class of 2009 worldwide, we did it!!!

July also marked the beginning of some serious parties, birthdays, graduations it was so insane, every weekend something was going down. I definitely had the time of my life from July through to August. I also got over my crush in August which was extremely liberating, it had become borderline obsession.

I started blogging in August, and it was the best thing ever!! I love my blog and I love my readers, thank you so much for reading 🙂

The beginning of September was also quite memorable, kicked it with some cool peoples and that is always fun.

In October I got to treat my mum for her birthday at TPF3 finale and she had so much fun, I am so glad she loved it.

November was cool, experienced new things.

December finally checked in and my cousin came home after ten years!!! I need to kick it with her more.

So wrap it all up, 2009 was a year of new experiences, awesome parties, meeting new people, and embracing adulthood bleh.

2009 Downsides

Final year project and eggzams sucked balls wololo The reading, programming, the papers themselves, what an awful time that was.

My friends who did not graduate, that must have been so hard, I cannot even begin to fathom.

I am not cut out for this 8-5 business that is the corporate world. I barely have any free time, two days in never ever enough so I really have not had enough me time this year. Worst part was working over Christmas, I will never stop whining about this. I also feel sad about not being made permanent, but I will continue praying about it.

Meeting men who did not think I was worth keeping in their lives.

All the people who have lost friends this year, why can’t we all just get along??

I am never hosting a party anytime in the near future at my house or anywhere with limited space.

Not getting to go to Mombasa for the new year. I had such great expectations, now all I can do is feel kimnyathe as people wild out at The Rica 😦

2009 Discoveries

My wardrobe expanded this year and it now contains more dresses, I am embracing the girly side of life.

I am not going to make people a priority in my life when I am only an exception in thiers. The only people you need in life are the ones that need you in theirs.

God is an awesome God. He has been so good to me, even if I may not necessarily deserve it. He has blessed me abundantly and he deserves nothing but my gratitude and praise. Thank you Lord.

I love my family and I love my friends, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us in 2010.

2009 was 2000 and mine.

What I look forward to in 2010

I will be on leave for the first two weeks of January and I am ecstatic, I can hardly contain myself. I need to catch up with so many people, and I will finally get to meet my nephew 🙂

My birthdays, but of course, January is going to be a long month, with many birthdays, I can’t wait.

I really hope my cousin will be able to come to Kenya this year with her son who I have never met.

I have no idea what 2010 has in store for me, but I really pray it will be yet another legendary year. It will be a great year, by force, hence the boxing gloves 🙂
