If you know me well, you know that I do not like mushy, emotional music, let alone country music, but this song is too beautiful to ignore. This woman has such a beautiful voice, and the song itself is too awesome! If I was ever to go for Idols or something, this would be the song I would sing.
I love weekends especially now that I have made it a habit to do something new, fun and interesting whenever I get a chance. This past weekend I went ice skating with a friend and it was so much fun. The whole idea of ice skating was frightening to be honest, since I have never really roller bladed or skated thanks to my over protective dad, so I was so sure I would suck at it. The skating rink is at Panari Sky Centre on Mombasa Road, 2nd floor next to Dream Theatres. It costs 700 Kshs to skate for an hour, the first thing you notice at the paying booth is all the rules you must observe at the skating rink. No food and drinks are allowed on the rink, no normal shoes on the ice, and other rules that I do not remember. The roller skates were definitely not what I expected, have you watched those movies where some guy’s throat was sliced using the blade of a roller skate? The blade is not as sharp, and walking on the skates is just like walking with heels on.
Walking on ice is a totally different story, it is super slippery so you have to be extra careful as you get inside the rink.
For us beginners, you are advised to hold onto the edge of the rink for dear life as you try your hand at skating. The instructor who was there advised us to skate with your feet forming a V shape and to keep your knees slightly bent. That was the end of the instructions, imagine!! He was not very helpful clearly, so we had to wing it.
The penguins on the rink are used to help you keep your balance by holding onto them.
Another instructor came onto the ice, and what a braggart, he was busy gliding over the ice like the pro he is.
He was more helpful, and he made me go skate in the centre of the ice, far away from safety.
It was a fun experience, I would love to do it again, maybe with enough practise I can be able to skate without holding on to anything.
Remember the episode for How I Met Your Mother where you get that glass shattering moment after you discover something about someone?
Well that was me last week, I discovered somethings which I really did not like which yet again made me loose faith in people. I wish people would put more thought into their actions and would try not to make so many mistakes. I guess to err is human so I have accepted that, but it does make me a bit afraid and sort of lost…
If people who are good can do messed up things, is there hope for anyone? Can they redeem themselves?
I met an idiot of a man this past weekend, he does not even deserve to be called a man, more of an animal nkt!
But I did get to kick it with some many cool people and I had a ball, though yesterday I was barely a human being, my body cannot handle partying like it used to before.
September seems to be crash an open bar party month, crashed a party on Friday night *thumbs up*
Turns out men who are not so easy on the eye compensate it with charm, 6 packs and humor 🙂 I honestly can say I do not have a type because the people I seem to be drawn to are so different.
Certain things were said by someone, they were awesome to hear, but I am very skeptical about whether they will be acted upon, and if I can wait that long, but we will see…
So as I had planned, I visited The Giraffe Centre in Karen, yes I had never been there before and I was on a mission to get a nice big wet one from a giraffe, that was before I saw it’s tongue and lips!
It’s tongue is extremely long and it oozes saliva which is slimy and shiny. The tongue has a very rough texture whoch could be felt when you fed it the food pellets, which it grabbed with it’s tongue.
So that was my weekend, I am eagerly awaiting next weekend’s adventure 🙂
I really want to expand my world view, seek new experiences and adventures, have more fun and meet new people.
Is anyone really satisfied with the life that they have now? My life is not too shabby, I never shy away from having fun, I work hard, I have great family and friends, but I still want to experience more, to posses more things because deep down we are material beings.
I want to take control of my happiness, and so far I have been very successful, and I want to continue with the same progress.
Keeping in line with all the adrenaline inducing things I have been doing of late, today I was wondering what other cool thing I can do that is out of the norm. My first thought was I want to hug a lion, but I could not think of where I could go to do that. Then i remembered that Kirsten Bell had visited Kenya and kissed a giraffe, and I knew I must do that!
That giraffe has skills huh? 😉 I must get a nice big wet one this Saturday!! Kissing men is so overrated, unless it is to pass on the giraffe cooties :p
I need a camera, a nice, big, snazzy one like a Canon or a Nikon which take excellent pictures.
I really need a new watch, the one that I have which was gifted is too tiny, I can never read the time especially at night. I just wear it daily because my hand is so used to having it there. I want a big watch, with thick straps and a gorgeous face, like this one.
I want to travel and see the world. Can you imagine I have only flown once in my entire life. In 2002 went to London for the weekend, it was my mother’s graduation. It was exciting and fun and I am dying to do it again.
I want to explore my own country, there are soo many places I have not been to, even here in Nairobi. I would like to picnic at Karura Forest, from the looks of Kurly Kichana and Nancie Mwai’s posts it looks like a beautiful place.
I want to go paint balling as well, I have not done it yet, even if my friend owns a paint balling place smh. That is on my to do list like soonest!
There is something I am praying very very hard for and I am hoping it comes through because it will literally transform my life in ways that I cannot imagine. I am so afraid of wanting it too bad that I may not get it, because that is how warped my mind it. But I really really pray it comes through.
I also want to go ice skating, which I am planning on doing next weekend with a friend who I know is reading this 🙂
I must go to a casino, I keep saying this and never doing! I can only go wit someone who will be strong enough to drag me away from the slot machines. I can never touch poker, or black jack. I suck at card games, hence why I broke my 15 year run of not throwing up the 1st day of 2011 smh.
There is a lot that I want to do, I will try my best to fulfill all of my hearts desires.
