I had a dream, a really strange dream. I was a warrior princess and I had a really cool headdress and warrior princess outfit. My weapon of choice were two long knives/daggers.
I was at war, and I was a fearsome sight, lol, somehow I managed to be while being 5 feet 0. I was worried I would die in battle but I was not afraid of fighting to defend....whatever it was we were defending.
I fought and fought, enjoying the look of surprise as the invading army realised who I was just as I got to them...
Then I woke up, my heart was actually beating and I was looking around looking for someone to fight...
What do you think this means? P.S I never play video games so I'm wondering if this is a past life flash back. hmm

and in celebration of this and because I have been accused of hating on men often, I would like to dedicate this post to the male influences in my life.
To Papa Smith: who taught me by experiential learning how to handle difficult men
To Aburo Smith: who taught me the importance of the occasional silence
To J: for being the most steady friend a girl can have. Except for that one year disappearance lol. Glad to have you in my life to remind me about real guys who don't always suck.
To T: for being the best older male influence I could have asked for, even if you do occasionally try to get into my pants. For remembering me as the bright laughing so so young girl you met and facing down the darkness that came later and being right by my side for those tough times, and for cooking and making me eat lol.
To R: for teaching me about love and understanding. I'm glad you found happiness now.
To B: for loving me and letting me go no matter how hard that was for you. Perhaps we will meet again at a better point.
To T.O: newest member of the crew, for keeping me grounded.
May the Lord Bless you and Keep you. May you all find happiness, you deserve it. May we continue to be good support systems for each other in good times and bad.

Actually most of what Kpakpando said is true and even applies to most women (trust me I have inside knowledge from going to a women's college)- so me I am not even going to fight.
But I wanted to talk about two issues that men like to harp on about but they are being really unfair...
the Nigerian woman and the weave
Now, it is now accepted that the Nigerian woman that likes oge (fashion) has to have a weave that is at all times on point but often is not. Some men will claim they don't like weaves because they are fake and go on to rant that nigerian women are too fake in general.
I say: Hypocrites! Liars! Pretenders! World Members (see previous posts)
I'm going to use myself as a test subject: Sometimes I have a very well-kept afro and sometimes i have a weave. ( sometimes I have braids but we'll let that go for now).
Typical NIGERIAN party scene with fro (note that results may vary in companies of mixed nationalities, what can I say white folks think I look hot with an afro)
Nigerian man: hey what's your name?
Nigerian man: sorry not you, (repeats question to my weavilicious friend or friend with long straightened hair (depending on the day)
Me: oh .
Typical NIGERIAN party scene with unbeWEAVABLE hair:
Nigerian man: you look really hot tonight
Nigerian man: Do you want to dance / Can I have your number
Other Nigerian man: She's already dancing with me.
Same person, Same makeup, different hair.
Why? I have decided I don't understand the Nigerian male mind, but it for some reason prefers a weaved female to an unweaved female. Nigerian women have simply learnt to adapt..
Next Rant: the Nigerian woman and the soccer team
