10 Years ago..
1995, primary school..enjoying the ignorance is bliss life.Trying to sneak past my bros to watch some Neighbours was the Mission Impossible of the day. TLC, Kriss Kross,Tevin Campbell were the jam! , Jimmy Gathu was the celeb and watching those 6 o'clock KTN music shows was the best source for beats. Got my first cd- Luniz -I got 5 on it. Had a gigantuous crush on the alpha boy in the class, bladda/elastics was going out fashion so we started playing Spit to deathly proportions, yani losing a game called for nothing short of a hitman for payback. Also going through an awkward invisible period, couldnt speak around unknown people, in public...hard times...finally handled it though and I think that was the year I stopped dealing with stress by chewing the collars of my tshirts. Made some amazing friends who are still dear to this day...still kumbuka singing the Knorr soup (turn on the stove, cut the sachet...pour it in...gonna make-a-ma-day) and Zwistal baby song during break..good times...
5 Years ago...
2000..Last years of high school(i am hereby dated), was the best of times , was the worst of times..Those bloody exams were always looming overhead...and plans for the future were vague yet interrogated for at least once a week(kind of like now). But for that madness was an unsurmountable joy of friendship that is unparalleled to this day...Who likes who, 'ati they did what at the rev?'....Paradise Lost was a weekend plan...Those school free periods that were apparently for studying were spent trying to derail guys into playing cards, hide and seek (our last grasp at childhood). Once over the bitterness of not being a prefect I was able to kula mwenjoyos of an untidy uniform, skipping class, late homework, abusing teachers(ok not the last one really ..but some of those teachers..hmmm) -all concious free! And some more good music that year...one of my favourites..I wanna dance tonite...toast tonite..Lucy Pearl!..Koffee Brown..India Arie...Discovered Coldplay...and oh how good Chris Martin and co. have been to me since....
1 Year ago...
This date exactly,was probably debating US politics with a friend since it was one week before the ill-fated elections and destiny lay teetering and tottering on the right impregnation of a chad , yet alack and alas...nothing changed and they reinstated that Texan dulah to power..tsk. ...Only bought one cd last year..may have been more from lack of cash than inspiration...
Woke up and watched jamie foxx then slept again till Seinfeld and Oprah and Ellen..then slept again..then went on the phone..then watched My Name is Earl..got upset cus The Office didnt come...Ahhh the unenviable life of the unemployed...Shud have slipped in some job applications somewhere...meh..anyway, another day, another dollar- not...
