Since I came to know you, I have never wanted to look back. You came into my life like a ray of sunshine. Definitely I was opinionated and I was full of these ideas that no way in this life could I be buddies with such a person like you. We were totally different people, far apart like day and night. Weird if I could ever imagine us in the same company at any given time.
You were loud, I was quiet.
You were outspoken, I was shy.
I perceived you as a radical and I was extremely conservative.
You were a free bird, I was geeky (I should say serious but u prefer the term geeky so be it :D)
So so many differences I couldn’t possibly list them all down. I couldn’t have been more wrong about you.
I couldn’t briefly describe you since I won’t do you justice.
But here is a sample overview:
You are FANTASTIC
THRIFTY (I have no idea what’s happening currently, get back to it :p)
Not to forget daring, adventurous, dynamic, strong willed, inquisitive (seriously never met anyone who asks as many questions as you do, except for my sis that is), open minded and reliable. Simply lovable.
You are an extension of the many sisters I already have ❤
I don’t really remember when we started talking, but suddenly you were in my life, and a constant part of my life. All those attributes of you I thought of in an unflattering light, I believe were just my way of downplaying you and still make my character be the best, desirable and me a star in my life. But I am happy you are co-starring in my life.I would not have it any other way.
Whenever something amazing happens I think… where’s my phone I call you ASAP! Same goes for sad and depressing moments. I know you are someone I can rely on and never get disappointed. I wish everyone would have you for a BFF, but again you know me, I am terribly selfish, jealous and would not want to share you with anyone as much as I want to be generous. Your presence in my life has built me to be a stronger character, you diluted my quietness and nowadays I am happy to shout out across the room and not care what people will think! I can now easily take teasing and laugh along but seriously wewe ni mchokozi sana!
Interrupting my naps. Classic you. I believe I wouldn’t expect anything less should you ever find me asleep. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t protest and bitch about being sleep interrupted? It’s just a defense mechanism 😀 I miss the planned and random shopping sprees, plots and activities already. Class events planning was a fun process, at least the class shall remember us for that. The chit chats and notes passing in class, the various stalker modes and nicknames, your love for spaghetti?! Never understood why or maybe I’m just an awesome cook 😉
I am yet to learn how to speak my mind, so you better stick around in my life or you’re doomed wherever you’ll be! I know your path of finding yourself hasn’t been easy either, there will be up’s and down’s, all to build you and make you a stronger person eventually but know that for now, I am here for you and you can be yourself with me. Wake me up at night. If you have to; break down the door if I don’t wake up. Why the hell am I planting ideas in your head? Never mind. I know that’s how you’d think any way :p xoxo
I’d say we are complementary in our differences and united in our similarities.
Today I celebrate you.
I wish you a happiest 22nd Birthday, all of life’s blessings, success, happiness, me to constantly nag you and always shine wherever you are and win thousands of hearts my dearest and the Lord to always guide you through your life.
NB: This piece has been a WIP for about a month now, I still wanted to share it.
In addition to it, in light of recent events we know life will always have its up’s and down’s. We will definitely get through them all though at that point in time you wonder how? just one step at a time. life has it all. the good the bad and the ugly. All are there to help us grow and appreciate life.
Some things may be out of our control, and the evils we’re unable to eradicate with actions then talking may be a solution; and sometimes talking doesn’t help yet just by seeing, knowing and feeling that what is happening is wrong is justice enough. It’s the most one could have done in that particular instance.
Keep the fire burning. love you always.
