"But living in London, I am slowly learning to be more patient with people, because London-people are always late for everything! It is a terrible thing and I simply can't fathom it!"
'Oh, my dear Sherida, you'd lose your head if it wasn't screwed on tightly' is what my mother used to say to me. I've always been forgetful, even in my much younger days. When I used to go to school in Ghana, the teachers would beat me because I just wouldn't remember whatever they were spewing out. And then again when I lived in Holland, the teachers there told my mother that I may have a concentration problem and that it would serve me best if I got some private tutoring. They also asked her if it had crossed her that I may have acute OCD syndrome, to which she viciously kissed her teeth and cussed out the Dutch education system for wanting to "demonise" her 8 year old daughter. She did put me in private tutoring, but turns out that all I really needed was some structure and reason in my life! You couldn't just tell me that 3+3=6, you'd have to explain to me why it was so, show me the ropes instead. Perhaps I've been fairly meticulous from birth-ish. So it's no surprise then that I carry my diary wherever I go. I can't do a thing without it! If you follow me on twitter then you've probably witnessed my ranting about the importance of punctuality, and also of planning. But living in London, I am slowly learning to be more patient with people, because London-people are always late for everything! It is a terrible thing and I simply can't fathom it! Don't be late for my wedding, you won't be allowed in (yes even you, mother), or my funeral, I'll haunt you in your sleep forever.
Here's a fun-fact, I couldn't really tell time comfortably until I was about 13. And even now I wouldn't buy a watch that didn't have all the numbers on it! It's probably a lazy habit but it's one that I'm comfortable with. This is why this Kulte watch is so amazing to me. It's got all the number and is super sleek and feminine. Whereas in 2014, I was really into my silver jewellry (and gold in 2013), this year I'm really loving the soft tones of rose gold accessories.
Anyway, I really must dash. According to my diary I have somewhere I have to be(+) and I mustn't be late in any occasion. Because you see my darling, time is truly of the essence.
(+)This somewhere I have to be is actually my bed. We have regular *planned* booty-calls.
