Has it Really Been a Year?

Damn! How fast time flies! Can't believe I haven't visited the blogs since last year. Well, I can't close the year without a single post. Oh, what school can do to you.

Was just reading my last post and remembering how depressed I was a year ago. It's true, time does heal all wounds. I am 100% over my ex, the death of my favorite unce and father figure doesn't hurt as much anymore....even my academic performance and finances have improved.

But, I'm still really bad at picking men. I think it's a disease. I keep joking to my family that they need to do one of those arranged marriages for me or else they'll end up with the weirdest in-law they've ever heard of. After all, I am turning 26 in less than 2 months and all my friends seem to be jumping the broom and popping out kiddies like popcorn machines. That little fact hasn't gone unnoticed by my family. Why in the hell would my aunties and grandmas ask me on a monthly basis whether I found a "new catch" (who uses such phrases?) My parents, who were always anti-marriage while in school, are suddenly worried that I'm not being "social" enough. My dad bluntly pointed out to me this past summer that I'll be graduating in less than 3 years and once I add that "Dr." title to my name, it's gonna be exponentially harder to meet eligible men (instinct tells me it'll be the opposite, but with Kenyan men, you never know). One of my aunts is even using phrases like "import a husband from Kenya"....gotta love these people.

All in all, this has been a progressively good year. After having a complete meltdown, the school year ended well, I spent the summer in Kenya doing volunteer service and meeting lots of hot, single, successful men (my love of Kenyan men was forever renewed), my second year in school is more stress-free, and I'm involved enough with community service that I'm finally feeling like my motivated, passionate self again. Even the social scene in this God-forsaken, middle-of-nowhere city has improved and if it wasn't for the lack of family, I might even venture to say I'm kinda starting to like it. Although I'll be damned if I stay here for residency!

And of course, can't forget to thank God for making all this possible. 2008 was a horrible year, 2009 has been a tolerable year, and I hope 2010 will be a successful, purpose-filled (and fulfilled) year. Cheers!

Another patriotic Kenyan just like myself. I am going to 'import' a nice Kenyan before my time runs out. Hey, good to see that you are back and that you are happier. Welcome back. Missed you.

SisBigBones said...

Thanks Bomseh :)
I've come to the conclusion that no matter what kinds of drama Kenyans have, it can't outshine American drama.

Erick said...

Welcome back! Thank God for RSS readers, otherwise I would have missed your comeback. Usijali, kizuri cha jiuza, kibaya cha jitembeza (spelling?).

Enjoy life and stop stressing about those who want you married. Good guys (or gals for that matter) come around when you're least looking.

Sheblossoms said...

I agree. And gal, I am two years older than you, trust me the pressure does not lessen. But you can't hurry love, on the other hand trouble can show up real fast. If I'm popping babies I want it to be because I am ready.

jmmk said...

i totally get the whole being pressured thing. after a break up earlier this year my parents were all suddenly wanting to know why i was staying in over the weekend, if i have met any "nice boys" and if i didnt know any suggestions were being put forward of eligible bachelors ... as hilarious as it is, its exhausting sometimes. things happen when they happen, you know?

good to hear that your year has been productive, and i hope that your comeback is a long term thing :-D

No one dropped any hints because they knew they would get a mouthful.Lakini my dad's sister had a habit if saying "this one is not married because she has a hard head." Now they are worried because I am not telling them enough about impending nuptials.......key word "MY life, MY wedding."

Does the Dr. at the beginning of your name influence- when it does it is negatively.Take it from me. (especially if people also think you have a big head) but for every big head, there is a bigger head waiting to meet you. That is my theory and I am sticking to it.

SisBigBones said...

@Erick...thanx!! And you got the spelling right :)
@DS...not feeling the pressure...yet. Just amused at the people applying the pressure. Perhaps I'll be singing a different tune in a few years?
@She...Trust me, I know! I get a kick out of watching my thirty-something year old cousins get harassed. Every invitation to a relative's house is equivalent to a blind date
@jm...I hear you, it can get irritating hearing the same thing over and over. I hope this comeback will last awhile
@3T...oh, oh! I do have a "big head". Too stubborn and hate to conform. I'm sure there's a bigger head out there that will keep me in check :D Good for you for keeping your fam out of your nuptuals. I have a friend who called off her wedding for a year cuz the family on both sides proved to be too much

*cliche alert*
Love shows up when we're not looking.

I'm with @sheblossoms on trouble showing up even faster.

The bigger head will appear soon.
