Taking my Cue from the rest....

OK..i am the worst blogger in history...I'll admit i havent blogged on here since maybe february, and sooo much has happened this year its ridiculous... First of all...

***I graduated (finally!!!!) YAY me!! I thought I was going to expire from sheer exhaustion in my last semester :(.. I would put a graduation picture up but sadly I havent yet broken my streak of never attending my graduation;
- Primary school, left from pry 5
- High school...was literally just chilling at home..then my dad calls and says..so..are u at ur graduation..and i said yessss daddy! and he says..but im here and i dont see u...*GULP...i made it at like the very end...
- Now college...i just couldnt be bothered..i really dont care about my Biology degree..and i told my 'rents we'd go to the one in Aug..which unfortunately got cancelled..so..here i am! no ceremony once again...one day, one day....
what can i say? Im my mothers daughter..

***I grew fat! yes everyone has rolled their eyes at me..but i am finally experiencing my delayed puberty...I have a nice rounded butt hehee..so according to Monique African men should find me more attractive right?? Woe is me..my metabolism is no longer what it used to be..is this that AGE of which they speak..nooo i dont wanna be fat..sigh, so now im experiencing Nicole Ritchie syndrome and ive been tryin to diet the whole summer..but Ive just been gettin greedier and greedier..

*** Joanie and Abby finally turned 21!! yes guys im comin...gimme about a month or so (I cant believe how young I am...yes everyone thinks im the oldest...eew!) So im still flossing my fake Id complete with bank card and insurance card (yes im gangsta i get all the bases covered). I hardly ever get stopped..except once...u shudve seen the sputtering..."What? umm excuse me that is ME okay i dont know what ure talkin about..its not that serious..jeez this is ridiculous"....YEA right!

*** So everyones been asking me..whats next whats next...blah blah blah... I don't like to think of myself as a spoilt child..id like nothing better than to cut the apron strings off right now..But sadly thats not how it works..especially when ure a Biology major.. am i supposed to get a job in a lab? I dont know anything!! Unfortunately the job market is limited unless you are some kind of proffessional when it comes to the sciences. So im taking a year off..to "find" myself...I wish..im going to be applyin to schools and blah-di-blah...get some kind of job..u know the works...such a thankless major..after all that Ochem...hiss

*** I got admission into my DREAM school..Parsons the new school for design. If youre not a project runway fanatic or you simply dont know what that is..well some of the alumni include:
Marc Jacobs, Donna Karen, Proenza Schouler, Badgley Mishka, Derek Lam...
yeah I could go on and on about it..I have been stalkin this school for a long time..and applied as a bit of a joke really..just to see if i could actually get in (and hid the fact that i applied so incase i didnt get in..u know..no shame involved)... Had to hand in a couple of projects..when i got called in for an interview i was so scared..abeg o..i dont know anything about fashion! Terminology or otherwise..but the interview was really relaxed and all that... and then i didnt hear back for like months and i was like oh screw this crap..and then I got the letter!!! and i was stunned! Sigh...so i guess I really could get in after all...
Now to actually GO...is another story for another day....

*** I found out that i am SUCH a city girl..I moved from my apartment in the heart of the city..walking distance from every bar and every lounge and every store...complete with my gays and transvestites that frequent the area (i miss them so..they upped my gaydar 500%..i can spot a 'gay' for miles..)..to suburbia and I just think I am goin to die!! I cant take trees and nothingness for miles..So i got my license! yay me..but sadly im too scared to drive...I miss my old apartment!

***Summer was/is great!!! I think we really overdid it just cos i dont know when we're goin to get a chance to act stupid again with them kiddos going to Dental school (effin jealous i wish ive skipped over all that exam and application process..). We went to all kinds of broadway shows ( I cry at every one..i know im a loser), and we also set an 'experiment' of sorts for ourselves. We wanted to see if we could actually enter all these so called 'premiere' lounges that are for 'celebrities'...and from our 'ethnography'
- FLY lounge Dc...if u havent heard of it..please if your in the area...do yourself a favor. Its the cutest...its designed to look like an airplane..and all the females that work there are dressed as sexy air hostesses while the bouncers are dressed like pilots...so sexist but so cute.. The BEST Dj..period!!! Its so hard to get in the bouncer doesnt even look at you lol... you just have to swallow ur pride and be standing outside like a mumu lol.. but fortunately for us..we met the manager and he fell in love with Joan(oyinbo men like joan eh..lol) so she had to take one for the team.. and so we never even went up to the bouncer...we had our garaunteed back door entrance everytime lol. And the owner AND the manager are so handsome sigh...

Joan and Piero...


- Now the NY lounges make me sick...Home, Bed, Marquee, Pink Elephant to name a few...pretentious, pretentious, pretentious!!!! I cant stand it...I need good music and fun people not all these oyinbos with sticks up their butts...attention seeking coke snorters that all frequent the place. Imagine a drink was $40...lol...i die!

*** Okay im coming to the end of this monotonous soliloquy.... I think ive overdone it as usual..so i bid you Adieu! much love and cranberry kisses~

Ill leave you with the video of the best song this summer...my ghetto girl crush.. Bed by J Holiday..peep Ijeoma in the video..half nigerian half red indian..isnt she that chick from 4400? well..either im right or ive started a vicious rumor, cos i sure do tell everyone i meet.....Oh well!

Congratulations on graduating. Are u saying you've never once wished or longed to walk a graduation?
I can't believe you guys are just all turning 21. Am so jealous, lol - am being silly. Growing old sucks. I don't mean I'd like to be stuck in time, just wish I didn't have to go thru the aging process.
I've heard of FLY Lounge. I love the concept of the place. Maybe one day, I'll try my luck if am ever in town.
You girls are hilarious - pimping Joan. But hey, am sure I'd have done the same.

Good luck with "the next step". Hope you are able to find yourself sooner than you expect.

Congrats on your Parsons admission and graduation too. WOW!

So Doreen's the youngest or Ozzy? A lil confused here...

Cranberry said...

@ S.Star -that was ozzy's blog, she is the youngest...

@ Mari, fly is really cute, you should def check it out! and i feel you about the ageing process...although i believe i have finally come to terms with it...i really dont care how fast i age, i care more about how old i look...so staying looking young is my main aim lol..
