What am passionate about…

I can't call it a 'Writer's block' because I haven't really got started. There are a few things I enjoy doing and a few am passionate about. I enjoy hair making, I find it relaxing (when my two girls cooperate, that is). I love to sew (if only I knew how to sew properly) and I've resolved to learn the basics when I can really spare the time. I enjoy crocheting (the story of my crochet is same as the sewing) But don't get me wrong, I've tried my hands on a few things, the simple and uncomplicated ones. I've managed to sew a number of casual wears for everyone in the house, except the newest ten month old addition to the family. From simple gowns to dresses…and I can mend almost anything that can go under the sewing machine. I've always had a skill for stitching and mending clothes by hand needle, for as long as I can recall. If I were not stubborn and in denial of my femininity, I'd have been earning money from sewing. But I think that's actually the problem- I do not intend to do it as a profession or as a means of making money. To me, it's just a hobby, like hair braiding, like writing (Ok, maybe not writing because that's actually one skill I certainly want to earn five figures (or more from-wink). There's something about sewing I feel that I haven't been able to put into words. It's just the way I like watching home make-over shows, taking intense interest in the decoration, seeing the latest technology, being fascinated by kitchen designs, admiring the space and how there's room for everything- Oh! my, I confess, I'm looking forward to my dream home sometime in the future, God willing. So what am just trying to say is that, I love that aspect of home, and the building, and how everything just takes shape from a bare land to something you can actually call a 'home'. Fascinating! But inspite all these, I cannot consider my 'future' career in Interior designs, or construction and what have you. I just enjoy watching and it helps me bring my own dream home alive…that's all.

Something I would really love to do but haven't got the opportunity is volunteering. I cannot erase the image of me volunteering off my head. It just never leaves. And I've always felt that way since I was young, as a teenager.

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
