Why Mom Was Right About Not Writing Things Down…


My mom wasn’t the most open about many a things when I was growing up. Most things were learnt from friends and my grandma (maternal side who I called Baba). Baba would teach me invaluable things like ‘Washing dishes makes your hands and nails beautiful’ and ‘Don’t sit with your legs up and spread apart while wearing a skirt so everyone can see your underwear’. Of course I can’t forget the one about ‘I must learn to cook because how else will I become a good housewife’. Afterall the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach right? Well, I later found out that washing dishes by hand ruins your nails, and if I wore shorts under my skirt I avoided people seeing my underwear, and I learnt to cook for myself and not because I was going to get married. Anyway, besides all that, being an only child didn’t help my situation either. So growing up wasn’t an easy task to conquer. With my mom’s limited hands-on, in depth talks and my friends telling me wrong things I was a hopeless case. However with that being said my momma did instill one tidbit of information that has stuck with me throughout my  life…And that is to never write anything down that you don’t want others to see. Because if it happened to fall into the wrong hands, it would ruin you.

People, Love and Materialism

words of wisdom

Ain’t the above so true my Pandas? I read it and was like YEAH! most people have lost sight of the important things in life. Why is that? I do know one thing though, a lot of us are starting to become collectors of things. It’s like the more we have, the more we are accepted and liked by society, or so we think. What the hell ever happened to love and being loved solely on who you are as a person? I think we look at all these “celebrities” on the cover of magazines and/or social media and for some reason people are breaking their backs trying to acquire a similar lifestyle. It’s not possible people. The average Joe does not make millions. The really sad thing is, that I know of people who wasted all their money on a high end Porsche or Ferrari, yet live in a fucking shit hole. You know why? Because they want to be on the streets showing the image of wealth off. Through their eyes, material possessions mean more. And if they knew someone who had even more, they would probably use them to acquire the same amount of things. It’s just one big greed-fest. I mean it might as well say, ‘love thy neighbour’s car’ in the ten commandments.
