I celebrate 2015 because


  • I am still alive and my loved ones have not been harmed despite all the bombs that went off near us
  • There’s a roof over my head
  • An endless supply of cloths
  • I have the luxury of choosing whether to eat roasted chicken or grilled fish, sleep on my bed or the Sitting Room sofa, disturb the ants or go swimming, watch The Mentalist or RudeTube…
  • My limbs are still in two’s
  • My senses work perfectly
  • I still have a mother to frown at and disturb
  • I still have  a father to tease about the boys that stare
  • I still have a grandmother and a grandfather; which means an endless supply of blessings and prayers
  • The acne has refused to go and the cold is coming which means my body still functions perfectly.
  • Some people don’t like me which means there is nothing wrong with me.

The list goes on.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Not for Thee.”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

This is one tough question because I have received countless advices. Yes, I am that stubborn. Most of the time I don’t listen to them anymore, because those who are giving the advice are obviously giving it for selfish reasons.

One of many scenarios:

Boy: Hey Mais. You should concentrate on your studies and forget about boys. They are like Hawks and will destroy you. You are too pretty to be destroyed

I was 17 at the time.  Immediately  I hit nineteen, this same friend of mine, who just finished dating my other friend, decided to tell me how much he liked me!

Seriously!! Did I look that dumb?!

The only advice I’d ever take, is my mother’s advice and all of them are the best… AND I would give them to others because we all have the same possible traits.

Mama, if you’re reading this. Happy Birthday! Love you lots.
