When in Doubt… #FOCUS

**I’m always on about words and the magic in them. I really do believe that words can be magical. You could hear certain words today and think nothing of it and you could hear them tomorrow while in a completely different frame of mind and they will be exactly what you needed to hear for one reason or another. Imagine my surprise when I found words that I needed to hear on The Big Bang Theory? (Honestly, I was not at all surprised. I have come to appreciate that they can come from anywhere at any time…) It was still nice to feel like all the hours I have spent on this show might have been for the sole purpose of me finding this conversation on this very day while experiencing the things I was…Serendipity anyone? Heh heh!**

This Watch You Gave Me

This Watch You Gave Me…I loved it.

It was the best thing I had ever owned.

You may not have thought about it, but it was in the perfect shade of red, my favourite colour.

Up till then, no one but my mother had ever bought me a watch!

This Watch You Gave Me…I wore it everyday.

I’m a watch wearer, I’m one of those people that feels naked and incomplete if I leave the house without my watch, but that was not the only reason I wore This Watch You Gave Me.

Brothers are…those people you can tell anything!

Such a small and silly thing to contemplate, but I am thankful to be able to have conversations like these with my brothers.**

Shower Hour

Living on the fourth floor of a building has its ups and downs, literally, as you can imagine, then there’s also water pressure drama. Sometimes I cannot quite tell whether water is an issue for everyone in the building, it being Juja that can’t be ruled out, or whether water is an issue for us because we live on the topmost floor.

You make me feel…Different.

**I am obsessed with feeling(s). It is said that one never forgets how you make them feel. Being a member of the “Thinking and Feeling” personality type as outlined by Myers and Briggs, we who largely experience the world via feelings and emotions, I can tell you that how someone makes you feel will stay with you to the end of your days.**

Fit Girls

**My friends and I went through, and are still going through, a major fitness phase. Which I think many young women are, and I love that it is a trend now! I like that women are staying active and taking care of themselves as opposed to starving themselves to achieve an idealized body shape that is unattainable. While on holiday from school, I started doing Insanity, an infamous fitness programme by Sean T, look it up if you haven’t heard of it yet, you can thank me later. When school resumed I gave it to my friends and two days after Njeri started out, this went down…**
