I don't have a title, abeg.

What's up people? What's going on in the world of Sting?
  • I wore a dress yesterday. I looked really good. Why have i not been wearing dresses all along? I need to stop being a tomboy. Girly girl might actually fit me better. Hmmmm.......
  • I've really not been feeling too well. My pessimistic/dramatic side hopes I'm not dying. My more rational side tells me to stop being a drama queen. 
  • I started a new blog - Sting's Food Diary. I need to track what goes in my body. I gained all the weight back. I knew all those cheesecakes were a bad idea. It's not an interactive blog cos i really just want to track my progress and off load whatever thots are in my head at the moment about weight loss and stuff.
  • What!-the!-fuck!-is!-wrong!-with!-blogger! today? It keeps sending my cursor to weird spots. It's seriously messing up my typing flow cos i type pretty fast. Urghhh!!!!
  • Oh, wanna hear how i sound? Put a voice to the blog? I'm co-hosting with Vera on Saturday. Don't know whether to be nervous or excited. We'll see how it goes. 
  • Weird how i never knew the difference between being in love with someone and loving someone. Maybe i knew and forgot? I can't believe i didn't know. Well i think i do now. What's ur version of the difference? Pls, share with me. 
  • I'm so weird. I'm excited someone is coming back from Nigeria, but this person is not even coming to where i am so i don't even get to see them. I'm still excited though and no, i'm not getting any gala back
  • I'm trying to find an apartment in school and the apartment complex where i want to live is really nice but the managers are frustrating me. They don't return calls. It's so annoying. My friend is actually going over there to fill out an application for me since i never received the one that was sent in the mail. A good number of med students and doctors live there but there's no covered parking. I guess i will be shoveling snow like the rest of them this year. Sting and snow = Not friends. Sting and Cold = Enemies.
  • I still feel like i've lost my voice so i'm slowly making my way back to blogging regularly. Don't know what is going on with me.
  • I'm starting to get nervous about going back to school. The stress from last year was horrible and thinking about it is enough to send me into a panic attack. Only in medical school will you be crying because you are so tired from studying, yet you sit there in your tears as you are crying and continue to study. No joke. It wasn't just me. We all hug each other a lot because sometimes that's all you can do. I'm sure i will be a little better at handling the stress than i was last year. Knock on wood.
  • I won for best personal blog. How cool is that?!! Thanks guys for voting for me. It meant a lot that i was even nominated for that category in the first place. Thanks. 
Enjoy the rest of the week Lovies. Let's hope i feel better tomorrow and I'm actually not dying. Lord Jesus, hear my prayer, i still have a good 70+ years left on this earth.

P.S. For reasons best  known to me cos I'm random like that, i want to give a big shout out to 2cute4u. I think you are a really nice person and you rock!  :)


  1. Er.... what's the difference between being in love with someone and loving someone? No I'm seriously asking.

    Med school sounds like an INSANE amount of work. I don't even think I'm capable of going through that, and I honestly have a lot of respect for those who have the courage to do it. Hang in there!

    Congrats on your award

  2. Unrelated, but I just noticed how insanely early I am to comment on your post. Omg. I've been first on practically every blog this week lol. I need a life (and a cure to my internet/Google Chrome addiction)

  3. Ha ha!!! I was like 2 comments already, but no, u fine. I was told that being in love is special and unique and with one person. Loving someone is general and anyone can love someone. Don't know if that made sense.

  4. a melancholy mood huh?..i don't know the difference of being in love & loving someone o!..If my heart & body shake JIGI railway when i see/hear the person..then my sis..LOVE DON SHOOT ME IM ARROW BE DAT O! *grinning*..HA! na so med school be?..kai! no wonder doctors are TEMPERAMENTAL O!..abi na lie i talk?..hehehe...So you like gala like my brother-in-law who always request for it when anybody to traveling to uk. E-Y-A! about your accommodation...snow shoveling is fun now!..hehehe.. Have a nice day.

  5. STING!
    You no go finish me o with your over personality!
    okay, first, there's this post,I think its a last year post on my blog.. '40 ways to know if you're a love addict'
    Don't shake your head o.. read it..
    I'm glad to know you're going back to school and I know as you do that you'd fare better and you'd have fun..

    Me?Thank you so much.. If only you could see me right now.. I'm an emotional mess and your shout out made me shed some tears (for 2mins!) I'm too hard biko;
    So, This poem is for you;

    If I should say-
    Make me
    Then was I made?
    I say, keep me
    Was I kept?
    Happy, was I unhappy?
    I do not know
    Trying to understand
    Pushing so hard
    Yet no difference is made
    They still continue
    Wickedness and ignorance
    Take the front chair
    They orchestrate the events of yesterday, today
    But, tomorrow?
    They are overshadowed by the
    Zeal of hope, success and resilience
    Ha me?
    I knew the day would come
    So, make me
    Keep me
    Happiness enfold me
    Yes I direct you
    Its okay
    You are free
    You are alright

    Then again, I have something for just you..

    As amazing as you'd feel
    It be hard to kneel
    Thinking that be a sign of defeat
    Fighting to see beyond the deceit
    For never have I seen a heart generous
    But loyal even when dangerous
    That's the scorpio-sting
    It has a nice ring
    you are one person
    loyal, generous
    happy, yet sad
    But in that sadness
    I see your fight to free of that
    I see your beauty
    I see your true heart
    I see your fragility though you hide it
    I see your enthusiasm about life
    That only shows me your drive
    That shows me you own your world
    you're a survivor

    I'm afraid I went too far?
    Please forgive me. My emotions are scattered.

  6. sorry to break this to you but you know that you only knock on wood when you DONT want something to happen.

  7. @miss.fab: Thanks.Med school is a lot of work, so it's not something someone forces you to do.

    @Ms. nitty: Lol @jigi jigi rail way. I remember that. Snow shoveling is definitely not fun.

    @2cute: Ha! Didn't mean to make you cry more o! I loved ur poem. Wow!

    @Leggy: Exactly! You knock on wood when you don't want to jinx yourself.

    According to wiki, The expression is usually used in the hope that a good thing will continue to occur after it has been acknowledged. So, for example, one might say: "The rain looks like it's holding off, knock on wood," or "Knock on wood, I'm much better now." Another example would be "I have never had to use my gun before, knock on wood.

  8. You'll be fine... all the hard work is soon going to pay off. Just hang in there a little bit longer, God dey :)

    Being in love with someone vs. loving someone - For me, I see it in terms of irrationality. Think of it this way, when you are inlove with someone, you never see their flaws. You never see that he may be being a jerk even though everyone else see it. But gurl, the minute the 'inlove' phase is over and you see him for the jerk he really is... the 'inlove' turns to love, and you start loving that person when you can accept him for the jerk he is, point it out to him and you both work on both of your flaws to get to a better place. That's just a snippet of how I understand... read Gary Chapman's 'Five Languages of Love' the one for married couples... (ahem... am not married, I mistakenly thought that was the only one available and I really wanted to know what he had to say) but anyhow, he has a chapter on being inlove and love, the difference, and it made a lot of sense to me. Check it out :)

  9. I would have said one falls "in love" with someone of the opposite sex, who is not family, and one loves family and friends.

    But it sounds too simple to be correct. So I'll go with Mwajim Al's explanation.

  10. congrats on the win, i'm trying to comment on your new blog though, is there no comment box?

  11. Congrats on your win, you deserve it. I wish you the best with the apartment hunting and back to school.

    I go with Mwajim Al on love and being in love.

  12. Congratulations on the win, you definitely deserved it.
    All the best with your return to school.
    Med sch is stressful no doubt, but after 1st and 2nd year, it'll ease up just a little bit and interacting (read as experimenting) with real live human beings will be fun.

    Take care dear.

  13. LMAO @ you not getting gala.
    Oh yeah 2cute4u is an awesome person. And CONGRATS ON YOUR AWARD! YOU REALLY DESERVE IT

  14. Imma have to go with Mwajim Al on the love bit.

    Hope you feel better.
