Day after Day, we fight
Always in the dark, never the light
Been going on for years, not wanting forever
Sticking it out for the social, they want us together
Gonna become famous, but we both cannot win
We can not have it all, no matter how much we sin
Cause you are the Player, Mr Bad Boy, you play the game
I’m the shy girl, so friggin needy and clingy, what a shame
We have the looks and the style, but in the end its a battle of brain
Cause once this is all over, I will bathe in sunshine and make it rain
I hate to be the one to tell you, but you must know I never lose
You’re the people’s prince but in the end, it is the Queen they choose.
So are you ready for reality, do you think you can handle
The amount of trouble I bring, cause I’m tomorrow’s scandal
“Shy Girl Comes Out of her Shell- Was The Romance Just Pretend?
Cause she’s been snogging off Mr Bad Boy’s long time best friend
Sorry honey, you have been so blinded, you look like such a mess
I have no feelings for you, boo- fame is a bitch and that’s just lust I guess
As a child, curiosity gets the better of me. I was a very fortunate child and even though many people thought I was just an innocent little human being (some still do), I was very mischievous. It was a hot day and everyone was inside watching TV with electric fans in every corner of the room. The dogs were outside sleeping and I was sad that I couldn’t go out because all my friends were doing other things. I was so bored and even though I could have been doing my homework or playing with my toys I was just feeling restless. I sat on the steps in the backyard thinking what I could do. Maybe I could sneak out of the house over to my friend’s house but I know I will probably get told off. I could wake the dogs but I could also get bitten and I wouldn’t want that. Then my eyes rested on the chicken coop. The chickens have been stuck inside for a long time so a little walk couldn’t hurt them. So, I let them out. And what followed was one of the funniest things I could have ever witnessed.
The chickens jumped out of the coop and ran around the backyard. All good so far. Then one chicken hopped up on the bed bench where the dogs were taking their naps. Another chicken followed and another and the next thing you know all five chickens were having a riot walking on the sleeping dogs. But you know the saying: NEVER WALK ON SLEEPING DOGS (okay I made that up). The dogs, of course, woke up and tried to murder the chickens. I ran inside and was like the Boy who cried Wolf: ‘Lola, your chicken got out and the dogs are trying to kill them!’. Everyone was sceptical at first and didn’t believe me but when one of the house helpers went outside and shouted: ‘The chickens are flying away, come and help!’. Everyone rushed outside and I stood there thinking: ‘I tried to tell you’. They spent 30 minutes trying to round up the chickens and protect them from the dogs who didn’t appreciate their nap being interrupted. I was meanwhile watching all of this happen and crackling with laughter as they figure out what happened. Those chicken can definitely take flight but after that incident, they were cooped in for days.
Until this day, no one was still sure what happened lol and of course, they didn’t suspect it was me (well if someone I know reads this they might know now so I apologise in advance #sorrynotsorry).
I know I haven’t been as active as I would like and I apologise for that with all my heart. I try my best to write and schedule posts when I can but I know I have been failing slightly on that front. That is why I have decided to open a series for this year that talks about my past adventures and things I have already discovered but haven’t shared with anyone. This probably defeats the purpose of this whole blog but right now, I feel compelled to write about the little things I still remember (before adulting fully takes over).
This series (still deciding on the name) will start on the 25th of February which marks my one year anniversary of The Undiscovered Adventures. It will talk about past relationships, friendships, conflicts etc… that are part of my life and the reason I made this blog in the first place. I have always been a quiet person and an introvert but I pride myself on being creative and I love telling stories. I have always wanted to do big things but recently I have come to realise that in order to do big things, I need to remember the small things first. I want to tell you my story on this platform, on my blog. I want to re-live my life as a 21 year old looking back on her life so far. I think that personally I am at the stage of my life where I tend to feel stuck and start to wonder more and more if maybe this is all life has for me but I can feel that there are so many opportunities available for me and many more adventures to discover and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
So, please come and join me in revisiting past untold stories and finding out how these now discovered stories defined me, a 21 years old aspiring blogger who is going to make big things happen! Watch this space.
Peace and Love ✌🏽❤️
Today I say goodbye to a trusted cable I have had for nearly three years. It has been an emotional time and year by year, this cable has been plugged into a battery plug for most of its life (apart from times others have borrowed it or times it leaves the room only to go into another room inserted into another plug socket). I have never made a post dedicated to my other two cables because one was a fake and the other didn’t even belong to me. But this cable has been a lead in my life that has energized most of my devices (mainly two) and we have never had a falling out and in all honesty, I will miss it.
But, then again, it survived two and a bit years and it was becoming frail and too bendy to the extent of it nearly breaking at the tip. Plus I should have known it wasn’t going to last that long when I came home and found it had been bandaged with black electrical tape. It only took a month.
Time to now throw another phone charger cable in the bin and say goodbye and reminisce about the amount of charging it did for all my devices. Well…at least until the delivery man brings in my new one then the whole cycle begins again. Who knows maybe this next one will outlive the last (but hopefully it won’t be anytime soon).
I need the toilet really bad
The pain is making me really mad
But my anger makes it slide more
Out of my backside or back door
I think I ate something funny
Not enough fibre but a lot of honey
I tried to hold it in but it couldn’t wait
My ass and the toilet had a very long date
I thought one date was enough but I guess I’m wrong
I don’t know if I can make it, the smell is still strong
I decided to go for a run, maybe it will go back in
Maybe I could just go do it in the community bin
I turned the corner and there stood my crush
Damn, why is he here when I really need to rush
He wanted to talk and I smiled a small smile
Please not now! I wish I could run another mile
But it was coming, my bottom just didn’t want to quit
FFFAAAARRRTTTT!! The mud volcano suddenly erupted, SHIT!
Eyes rolling and she starts to tut
Has you around her finger and mouth shut
Cannot move cause you are wrapped in thorns
Tell yourself she’s an angel with horns
Yet you give your heart, never speak your mind
She has your eyes covered from behind
Cannot see her wandering into sin
She stares at you, you never win
She walks around you like a puddle
Boy you need to wake up from the muddle
From the cloud, the mist, the fog
She has been out kissing lots of dogs
Every night, every moment, every day
Mate, she is far out, been led astray
By filthy boys who give her time
While you work the dollar and the dime
She goes off knowing you’re not home
She has already declared you all alone
Act now before its too late
Cannot sit, please don’t wait
For your lover is already in bed
Under the sheets, giving head
She does it all the time, didn’t you know
For the last two years, you’ve been with a hoe.
Since the holiday, I have been eating a lot of things and (without shame) enjoying every bit of it. The holidays have always been the time of the year when I happily enjoy eating a lot and not really caring if I gained weight. But this year there was some worry if I’m going to gain back the weight I lost several months ago. I was alright at Christmas and took care of what I ate but the New Year was like food paradise. I ate every single dish that my mom cooked and within the next two days, I could feel the weight coming back and for the first time, I felt a little bit disappointed that I have gained the weight back so fast as it took me to lose it.
That is why I am so determined to lose it now because knowing me, I will have the ‘there is still tomorrow to start’ mentality. I need to lose this weight now before it gets out of control. I had already started exercising in the mornings with the dumbbells and on the stationary bike but then my stomach and my persistent and easily tempted sweet tooth saw the holy grail of calorie intake staring back at me.
The can of half full condensed milk!
Yes, CONDENSED MILK! It was right there and tempting me to have a spoonful but secretly knowing I will finish a quarter of it in the span of three days. I honestly do not know what came over me and as I write this blog post, I feel so ashamed. I have tried to avoid finishing it and I knew deep down that if I had even a teaspoon, I will get addicted to it! I can put my hand up now and admit to having a slight relapse to eating condensed milk.
But since the New Year’s food is nearly all gone (thank God), the exercise and lessening food intake will also follow and I can lose some weight and feel more healthy again. Wish me luck everyone and here is to a healthy 2018.
