Personal Ad: Selling yourself

I think there is a thin line between selling yourself and bragging. How do you portray yourself in a spectacular light without coming off as a braggart?

I do not think I would put up a dating ad, because most of the stuff I would spew on there would be what I know would be what you want to hear. Intrinsically that is the whole point of advertising, but I would prefer wowing you with things you would never expect, instead of having to conform to the traits I claimed to have in the ad.

Same thing applies for my blog, you may have noticed I rarely publicise my blog, and I disable my sharing buttons. I let my posts speak for themselves, and rely on you loyal readers to spread the word on my behalf. Seeing that Revealed is almost clocking 75,000 hits, you guys have done a good job, big up yourselves 🙂

As for twitter, I let my personality speak for itself and say whatever it is on my mind. Facebook on the other hand is totally about vanity.

An opportunity has presented itself precipitating the need for me to really sell myself dynamically in order for me to get what I want.

I honestly do not believe in using my looks to sell myself. Do not get it twisted, I am very beautiful if I do say so myself notice how that comes off like I am full of myself, thin line I tell you..

I prefer being creative in how I portray my intelligence and my abilities. I would never like to be stereotyped as one of those women who use their looks to achieve what they want. I would much rather prove myself by being diligent and let my actions speak for itself.

I need to be touched by an ingenious idea as soon as possible (o.O)

TGIFridays!!!

My Funky Friday Theme Song Is

Kylie is one smoking hot woman, too much woman for Taio me thinks, or why is there so much distance between them in the video??? I love this jam though 🙂

This Weekend I

just wanna chill out and kick it with my friends during the day.

I am really craving

a nice pair of shoes, new clothes and a new bag..

I wish

I was a kid again, adulthood blows!

I hope

I can be more responsible, and have a positive approach on life.

Have a Fabulous Friday!!

 

Lead me not into temptation..

I lost the fight against temptation,
At first I was indifferent,
Distracted by all the pretty faces,
Little did I know that I was feeding the green-eyed monster.
I lost the fight against temptation,
He led me by the hand,
to the arena where my downfall would occur.
He held my waist and reeled me in,
Leaning in to claim what he desired,
I was ready to resist temptation,
No good had come off crossing that line before,
what good would it do now?
His lips reached for mine,
I turned the other cheek,
and his soft lips grazed my cheek.
Not willing to accept defeat,
he sought my lips again,
But I wasn’t willing to give up the fight.
or so I thought..
The moment of weakness creeped in,
as he embraced me to say goodbye,
I lost the fight against temptation,
when his lips brushed against mine,
as I felt his warm breath fan my face,
and my lips out of their own volition started responding to him.
I lost the fight against temptation,
I may have lost the battle,
but the war is not over yet…

TGIFridays!!!!

Terrible Tuesdays

Today has not been one of the best days..

For a while I have been noticing that Tuesdays generally suck. We all expect Mondays to be awful, given the weekend hangovers, lack of enough RnR,  the beginning of a new long week, but most of my Monday’s actually are not too shabby.

My day was not really awful, just coupled with lots of work, and new revelations that I went searching for. They weren’t lying when they said curiosity killed the cat. I am now running out of spare lives because I keep dying.

I have started praying for the virtue of patience, I think it is something that I really need in my day to day struggles.

I am one of those people who goes out of their way to be nice to people because stupidly enough I want them to like me, and to have a good opinion of me.

Yes, I am that proverbial people pleaser, who puts other peoples needs before my own, martyring myself to make sure that other people are comfortable when I myself am not.

I wish I could figure out where that incessant need stemmed off from, I would definitely get rid of it as soon as possible. Clearly my efforts go in vain and go unnoticed. All I end up with is serious over thinking of situations from all sorts of warped angles, and tons of raw deals.

I really seemed to have digressed, I have no idea where I was going with..

Anyhoosmoo, I am amazed and awed at how easy people find it to forgive each other, and I wish this was something that everyone in the world would embrace.

I have also witnessed how overcoming fear leads to good things that you may not have anticipated, which leaves you wondering what you were afraid of in the first place..

If there is something I have mastered the art of lately it is blank stares, it’s the only way I can control my emotions when I am being irked.

I am really frustrated right now, and dissatisfied with a lot of things, some I can change, others I cannot. For the ones I do have the power to change, I have done nothing. Clearly I cannot be helped.

Another revelation that I talked about in an earlier post is still on my mind. People clearly rush into things without analyzing what they have hurried into. Others stay in situations which do not benefit them but end up destroying their lives. There are also those who know what they are doing, appreciate what they have and work really hard to maintain a grasp on that which they value. I on the other hand have not rushed into anything binding, I am not making decisions based on how someone else’s reaction will be. I have the upper hand when it comes to choosing my actions, all these are factors that I am truly beginning to appreciate and embrace.

Of cupid’s day and things..

Today is when I am discovering that three ladies I know named Valentine were born on Valentines Day (o.O)

This year I had decided to play along on this Valentines Day hullabaloo, but it’s all easier said than done. I am totally not dressed in red *barf* I would never have managed to even if I had wanted to thanks to KPLC who ensured we woke up in darkness.

Do employees of KPLC ever experience blackouts? Aren’t these frequent blackouts a clear sign that whoever is responsible for this job performs very poorly?!

So at least I can report that I am not dressed in all black as I usually do, and I am not (yet) at all disgusted by the public displays of affection that this day precipitates.

I am weirded out by the fact that I am getting salutations from men in the form of ‘Happy Valentines Day’ to which I am giving the response ‘Good Morning.’ I do not know you in that way, yet alone love you so people need to get all this Valentines hysteria outta their heads.

I wish Valentine’s was end month, there are some amazing deals up for grabs that I wish would last till the end of February.

Long story short, this day is making me nervous and uncomfortable, it needs to end like now!

I had yet another fantastic weekend, of course coupled with awkward moments, I have been getting a ton of those since last weekend, and I have been handling them like a champion.

I was hit with many revelations this weekend, they include:

  • The most minor things can be deal breakers for me when it comes to men. Some of the things that irked me were smelly breath, thinning hair, resemblance to creepy weirdos, Nairobi West revellers, and students, just to mention a few things.
  • Be careful what you say because your words may be misconstrued and used against you by people you least expect to. Trust no one…
  • ‘Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.’ This excerpt from The Lord’s Prayer (which is a prayer I need to whisper more often) really spoke to me. People have forgiving hearts, and thankfully I am one of those people, there is no room for hate or anger in my heart, and I am glad to know someone else who is just like me.
  • I love being single, relationships are too much work, I do not think I am ready for such responsibility, let me continue enjoying my freedom.
  • I need a car really really really bad.
  • If you are starved of male attention, just go for a rugby match, the testosterone levels are on overdrive, the men are so many and they cannot keep their eyes to themselves smh.
  • I had been yearning for proactive men, and the dose that I got was a tad bit too overwhelming. From men who indulge in mind games to very forward men, I have had enough (I have shibad). Hopefully I will get to meet a neutral man soon enough, otherwise I can do bad all by myself.
  • Do not dry nail polish using the hand dryer, it makes it bubble.
  • Always carry the spare shoes with you to the club while you are wearing heels, do not leave them in the car several blocks away.
  • The chicken for kenchic westlands is so yummo. The skin tastes like crispy chicken bacon, if such a thing existed.
