I am a huge homebody. I spend a huge portion of my time in my house, reading, writing, watching cartoons and reality shows and of course talking- actually gossiping with my mum. I know alot of teenagers/young adults (which is the age group my physical body fall into while my heart is that of a kid) love hanging out with other teenagers outside on weekends. I do too. Regardless of what people say, I am not antisocial. Okay, maybe a li’l bit. But I do enjoy my own company and with alot of time on my hand due to school not starting till a week and two days or so. I am surprised at the fact that I spent over four months in my house. But today, I wanna focus on five things I do most weekends.
Reading- I have always been an avid reader.I remember when I was in secondary school and I couldn’t eat without a book by my side. Even In my house, underneath all my couches I have novels so that whenever I just reach out I get one. But my obsession has got to be magazines. I love magazines. Especially old ones. I love going back to my collection of magazines and picking one out and reading it with a cup of milk and some awesome music. The magazine I am reading this week is Complete Fashion, a 2013 copy with Sasha P and Bryan Okwara.
Music- There is nothing quite as awesome as some great jams blasting your ear while you skim through a copy of Complete Fashion. Currently, the song I have replaying this weekend is The Cell Block Tango From The Musical Chicago. Apparently, it is about six murdereressess who killed their husbands/boyfriends for varying reasons including accusing them and popping gum. I think the line I have been obsessed with all week is ‘He ran into my knife, he ran into my knife ten times’. It’s very relaxing. Odd?
Phone- Okay, no matter what anybody tells you, I am not obsessed with my phone? I just love it so much, and I don’t like anyone else touching it. And I have this urge to check it every minute for new notifications. And looking at pictures. And texting. Okay, yes I am. I admit it. But I think In this generation we all are a little bit obsessed with our smartphones. By the way, the phone apps I am currently obsessing over are- Wattpad (Because I am a huge reader), Instagram (I really love how Social Media allows us to go into full stalker mode without having to climb into people’s compounds and get arrested), and Snapseed. I actually learnt about Snapseed a couple months back while reading one of my favorite blogs- Mira La Belle, I however never got it downloaded until last night. And trust me, I have no regrets because it is one of the best and easiest photography apps.
Snacking And Drinking- I eat alot more than most people know. Alot of people believe I don’t eat much, but the truth is I snack more than I eat. I actually eat my own weight in snacks. And my fast metabolism and occasional workout otherwise trust me I would have been a lot huger. But what I really take most weekends is a mug of milk. Something that gets my mum pissed. I take only four cups a month. And those four cups are what makes up the whole tin. The truth is I use about five huge spoonfuls, two cubes of sugars and a sprinkling of chocolate- just enough to change the colouring, with very hot water which I pour to about three quarter of the cup so it’s very creamy. Sometimes too creamy, but very hot which is great for Sipping while reading a romantic fan fiction with The Cell Block Tango just whispering in your ears.
So there you have it. That’s the kind of craziness I get up to during the weekends, what about you? What’s your Weekend life like?
