How She Came Back To Life

I was devastated when she died.

And then I met her again. Yes, I did! Her smiles were still the same, there was something about her that pulled me to her. I was suddenly happy and then sad and nostalgic and then happy again. It felt good.

The name Retyit means, ‘Happiness’ and that’s exactly what you get when you meet Retyit. She was vivacious and full of life. Nothing could dampen her spirits, at least we thought so. Not until the very cold and cruel hand of death ripped her out of our lives…Β  But then I saw her again! Yes, I did. One day in church. It wasn’t about the features. It was more about how I felt when I saw her. I recognised her as the girl I’d known, and loved and lost.
She looked up into my eyes and I could tell it was the same spirit. Alas! Our friend wasn’t lost. She still lives on in the hearts of every happy person.
There are times I feel guilty that we started getting too busy towards the end to spend ample time together, but it didn’t subtract from what we had, not even for a second.

We all have our struggles in life, it’s okay to, but never let it kill your spirit otherwise you would have lost the battle even before the war.
Today I celebrate my friend, our friend. Even if life gets too hard for you to crack a smile, think of Retyit that died and the one that’s still alive and smile in their honour.

Have a lovely weekend!
In loving memory of our friend, Retyit Longse. We love and miss you dearly

My Candy Crush Adventure

Here I am, an out of the closet candy crush addict. I can boldly say I’ve been hooked on it since I discovered it on Atafa’s galaxy tab. After getting the hang of it that day, I helped him complete a level he’d been stuck on for a couple of days and I immediately downloaded it when my data network was good enough (you know you can’t rely on network in Nigeria).
On my HTC I have Miss Spell’s Class, Subway Surfer, 4 pics 1 word… Games like that, but if you check my apps by their level of use candy crush would be like ‘last used: 1 minute ago’ while the rest of the games would be ‘Last used: 2 months ago’. Lol
I’ve become something of a guru when it comes to Candy crush, if the number of people that ask for tips is anything to go by. At least, I think so. Another reason why the number might be on the increase is cause I’ve advertised the game to all my friends and acquaintances who use Android phones.
When it comes to playing games, there are strategies for each and every one, but that’s not to say it’s an assurance that you will win with your own strategy. For me, with Candy Crush, I’ve noticed that I complete levels and orders when I’m in a somewhat tight situation or playing the game when I normally shouldn’t be. I.e In the toilet or when I have company which are both inappropriate times to be doing so, but with Candy Crush you have got to go with your gut. Yeah!
My best tip for Candy Crush is just to keep on playing. One day you will pass that level.
Another thing is, don’t take the game too seriously. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very, very serious game here, but play it with the air of determination and fun… Treat it as a game, but play to win.
Play it as often as you can. The more you play, the higher your chances of getting good at it. The less you play, the more likely you are to spend more time on the tough level.
Go now and get playing. You could search for it on the Google App Store or click the link below, to download the most addictive game on the planet, for now anyway. Lol

A GENUINE APOLOGY

What is it with the word ‘sorry’ that if said can quench the hottest anger and when not said can fuel the wildest fire?
I have been feeling off kilter for a while, but something happened that gave me the fuel to write on this. I’ve had a couple of experiences where people have gotten angry cos I didn’t say sorry when they thought I should have.
Quick question; If God got angry at us each time we neglected saying sorry what would have become of humans and the world in general?

Back to my musings….
If there are words I don’t have a problem saying, it’s ‘sorry’ and ‘please’, but my issues come up when this adjective and verb are demanded and not allowed to come of one’s free will, at their own time. When something is forced, it loses it’s value. It becomes a mere word and nothing more. Why would one subject himself to being appeased by mere words that mean nothing when it’s not from the heart?

I recently attended a funeral and had a heart breaking encounter (not as bad as it sounds though). I and a dear friend are butting heads because she thinks I did wrong and caused her to miss the funeral while here I am not getting what the problem is cos I gave her the details the previous night in order to avoid issues on the main day. The crux of the matter is that after all was said and done she thinks I should have just apologized rather than try to explain… Holdup! Let’s take it slow… Why would I just apologize when I don’t even know what I’m apologizing for? Is that fair? I guess apologies have just become the easiest way of getting out of a fix. Well, not for me. I’m not a dude (sniggering).
I believe that everyone in life has a reason for doing anything and everything so I always like to know the why first. It is only when the reason isn’t worth it that I lose my marbles. I just expect that people should be reasonable and think of others too. Is that too much?
