DIY Frenzy

Lately, I’ve been on a DIY mood. Okay, scratch that. I’m always in a DIY mood, but lately, it has been an obsession.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I started a wig business and I made my first sale yesterday!
Pretty awesome milestone. An exciting feeling.
Incase you’re lost on what “DIY” means, it is an acronym for “Do It Yourself”
So lately Ive been trying out different arts and crafts. There’s a new one I’m about to start which I plan to sell afterwards.
I go on the internet in search of a new task to DIY and i try them. Some crafts are easier than others but they all seem easy on the internet.
I plan on making a business out of this DIY. I already sell my handmade wigs, now this new one I’m about to venture into (it’s a secret until i try it out successfully and start sales.)
Sometime this year or maybe the beginning of next year, I plan on learning to sew. The major reason for this is so I can sew for myself!
There are so much trendy styles coming up every time and most times, all I can do is admire and fantasize about it. Sometimes I give a tailor to help me sew a style and they either end up messing it up or it wont be up to my expectations. However,once I can sew, I can sew whatever style I want and be up to date on whatever fashion/style is trending. I can satisfy my desires, I’ll sew exactly what I want because I understand myself and sometime along the line, when my sewing is perfect, I can make a business out of it, selling trendy ready-made pieces.
I’ve just got different ideas brewing in my head, I just hope everything works out for me.
BTW, I need a job, some sort of way to earn money because I’ve got needs plus my ideas need money to kick off. I also need customers for my wig line for money and motivation.

Update

I have a blog and I don’t post often on it. LOL

Anyways, this post is just going to be an update on the recent things that has happened in my life while not giving out personal information or precise details and I’m still not going to say every single new thing that has happened so….

First, I just graduated from the University. Yaay!!

Second, today’s my birthday.Double yaay!!! (August 6 in case it’s not clear)

I turn 20, that is to say I graduated at the age of 19!

Anyways, I plan on starting a wig business. I’ve actually started, I have the social media pages and all. Business hasn’t really kicked off though.

There’s also the question of “Now what?” which I don’t have the answer to yet. That’s what I’m going to focus on now, finding out what I want to do with my life and actually making steps towards achieving them.

 

 

The “What To Wear” Dilemma

I don’t know if others have this issue too (females especially), the issue of what to wear to whatever events we need to dress up for.

You need to hang out with your friends, go on dates, events, this and that and for all these, you need to dress ‘appropriately’.

You wont want to over-dress or under-dress, unless of course, you don’t care, in which case, whatever goes.

Then there’s the case where everyone, in the fear of ‘under-dressing’, end up setting  very high standards for dress code.

Most times, I avoid going for events because I can’t keep up with all that. Stressful! But then, if I’m going for any, I want to look good (obviously) so you’d see me on the internet, looking up latest trends or asking those I know what they are wearing for the event or what they would wear (if they are not going)

Times where there is no time to shop for new clothes or no funds, I ransack my closet, testing this and that for what would look presentable and select possible options. As i do this, I swear to myself to update my wardrobe. (which I don’t do, and continue the cycle again next outing)

So I guess all I’m trying to say is that I usually have to think about what I’m going to wear any time I head out (some times it’s easier, sometimes it’s not) and it’s quite stressful.

To Do: Crochet Braids

I’m thinking of installing crochet braids back to school. I’ve seen pictures of it and i really do like it. I’ve read articles and watched videos on how to install one and it seems relatively easy.

I haven’t gotten the necessary materials for it yet. I don’t know what hair bulk to get. What braid pattern is appropriate for it as i think the braid pattern determines the crochet braid style.

I already have an idea though. As soon as i get all the necessary materials (which isn’t much), I’ll give it a go.

My first trial would be on anyone available or on a mannequin head.

If it’s possible, I’ll do it on myself!

Though i can braid my hair (to wear a wig), i haven’t been able to make a proper hair to take out (I haven’t tried though).

The women in the videos I watch make it seem so easy! So I’ve decided to try it out.

But first, i’ll try it out on someone before doing mine 🙂

If it doesnt work out then i’ll get it done somewhere.

The Game of My Dreams

For those of you who enjoy simulation games, or those of you who are game-addicts, or those of you who just know the game, I am sure that you can attest to the fact that:

The Sims 3 is AWESOME!!!!!!

Since my Secondary School days, I have been intrigued by the game, I love the graphics and everything about it. The sad side of the story is that I just couldn’t get it.

I could only get them on phones but I couldn’t enjoy the full package of awesomeness 😦

I tried downloading it but it was just too large and it was really complicated, taking me from one link to another.

I tried buying the CD to install (turned out to be fake! 😦 )

The long and short of this story is that finally (after all these years), Just last weekend I GOT THE GAME OF MY DREAMS (along with some expansions) 😀

I won’t divulge my source but just know that I am extremely grateful…

Well.. I hear now that there is (or there is about to be) ‘The Sims 4’ !!!

“WHAAAATTTT?!?!”

With even better graphics and stuffs!! I remember the time and energy it took me to get this one, only for me to hear that another one is on the way! That one should just chill!

Back to THE SIMS 3…

I played it last night and

-I burnt my kitchen

-almost killed my sim

-got arrested

Well I need to get better at it.

I really love it :*

Would probably soon get tired of it but until then it’s

“Play Till I Drop”

PS: Those of you that had the game all these while and allowed me to stress myself in search of the game, God is watching you!!

New Job

I just vacated and from experience, I knew that i had to get something planned for the hols, something I would get busy with.

I couldn’t think of any vocation or skill I would like to learn and besides, that would require me spending money.

I thought to myself:

“Why spend money when I can make money?”

Thus my search for a job began.

I had high hopes for my first job though but I finally got a job in a Pharmaceutical company!

Apparently, the MD thought I studied Micro-Biology which was why he hired me.

He looked sad or disappointed when he realized that I was not even science-inclined!

Well it is not my fault that he didn’t read the “Letter Of Recommendation” I gave him which clearly stated my course!

He still hired me though and put me in the Accounts department!

Fortunately, I share the Air-conditioned office with one lady and….

I HAVE MY OWN SEAT, TABLE AND PC!!!!

Plus there is FREE WIFI!!!!

So far I’m enjoying my first day of work but I keep thinking that someone would come in and claim ownership of my assigned seat because It seems so good to be true  ^.^

Let me see how the rest of the day goes (It is just 10:24am)

Will be working throughout my holiday (3 months).

I feel all professional 🙂

LOL

 

THINGS I HATE!!!

I know no man is an island which is why we need people around us but then, some people can make living with them so hard!!!

Some people just act like their main purpose on earth is to frustrate every living creature on earth!

Sometimes I just thank God that I am not physically strong because if I was, I would have beaten up so many people to death!!

Well I don’t fight (because I’m not ready to be killed) so I just move on with my life.

There are things i hate so much and I tell people I know so they can try not to do that to me.

They are:

1. LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN

I hate this so much!!! People just walk in and out of my room as they please and then leave the door open and I’m like

‘What is wrong with you??’

How hard is it to close a door after you?? Oh! So you find it easy to open a door but very difficult to close it?? How would you feel if i just walked into your house and left the door or gate wide open? That would be nice right since you hate closed doors so much!

The door was closed for a reason so the least you can do is close it back!!! it’s not like the door weighs several tons or you’ll be struck by lightening if you close that door!

2. EARPHONES WITH JUST ONE EAR WORKING

The essence of ear phones are to use them with both ears working! Like what’s the use of listening to music with just one ear? You just can’t feel the song! You can still hear the ‘outside noise’ It’s not like it’s just one of my ears that work.

Well I just hate it when I get a new earphone and then not long after, one ear just stops working (usually the fake ones though :$) but then! Haba!!

It just pisses me off and I don’t know why!

3. TAKING MY STUFFS WITHOUT ASKING

IT’S MINE NOT YOURS SO ASK!!!!

 

Let me just round up here. These are just the ones that got to me today. There are still more though but then I have to learn to tolerate some things i guess.

 

This is Life… through Her Eyes

 

Coffee or Me??

So we are writing our examinations now…

Different people and different reactions to it, one thing in common though is that serenity and calmness everywhere. In the classes, Halls, Library, everywhere. There aren’t even much people on the road anymore.

We have got to pass right??

Well speaking on the issue of passing! I had this paper by 10am on Friday morning and by Thursday evening I wasn’t even half ready! WHAAAT??

Well knowing myself well, (I sleep alot :$) I resorted to coffee from a kind friend who was in the same situation as me and so I took the coffee and drank it.

About 5 minutes after drinking the supposed ‘alert thingy’, i felt sleepy and I’m like:

“How long does it take for the coffee to start working?”

And they all laughed at me. Guess it’s supposed to start early but then i felt so sleepy!!

I had to stroll for a little bit before i was ‘awake’

So is it the coffee that’s  just not active or is it me that just sleeps a lot??

I still got to read till like 4am before I was sleepy again and here I was thinking I would be up all day!!

P.S- I blame the coffee!!
