KALEIDOSCOPE OF GIRLS

I wrote this waaaaaay back in Senior High School for my year group magazine REVAMPED (shout outs to the Dahlia 3 Science 1 giiiiirls😂✌️). Even then.. These girls, scratch that – We’re sisters now!!😍 – could see the potential in me that I clearly couldn’t see in myself so I’m dedicating this piece to them. They are part of the reason why I began blogging in the first place and for that I’m eternally grateful🙈😀.
Attending an all Girls’ boarding school has been an eye opener in every sense of the word! Believe me, there’s absolutely nothing that beats the experience of being surrounded by girls of all categories “struggling” to belong and to be known! After carefully observing them (both in and out of school).. I identified a few prominent groups📝⬇️

  • NERDY GEEKS

 

Otherwise known as “walking encyclopedias”. Always seen coming out of a library or having her head buried in a book. Even in “dumsor” situations when everyone else gives up on studying, she’s busy reading a huge textbook in the dark with a flashlight! Girls like this were just born to give PRESSURE! Her social abilities are close to non existent except of course – you happen to be a geek like her!

  • FASHIONISTA

  

You’ll definitely find her at the mall every weekend shopping. (As for mall, it could be Accra mall, it could be Circle mall or Tema Station mall or Kantamanto mall😂😂😂 the value is still the same!) She always does her damn best to be in vogue. It’s designer labels all the way for her. If you see her carrying a Louis Vuitton bag👛, don’t look so shocked! You’ll probably find her in an Armani suit next time smelling so good you know she’s put on Chanel no#5 with her swag intact! 

  • ENO TECH

  

She’s always on the lookout for the release of the latest gadgets and technology. When asked, she’d tell you Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckenburg are the best things that ever happened to mankind. She’s so not the “yam” kind of girl😂 If you’re not into twitter, whatsapp, Instagram and BBMing….then forget it! – cos you don’t stand a chance.💁

  • TOMBOY

 
Almost always seen sporting a T shirt, a baseball cap, jeans and sneakers! She loves being in the company of guys and just in case you want to take her out on a date, never make the mistake of taking her out to dinner mate! 

  • GOLD DIGGER

  

All she ever does is to chase after wallets, credit cards and dough!!! If you ain’t got a dime, then you’re definitely not her type. One thing is for sure though, you’ll never see her again when you’re broke😅

  • EFIE AKOKO

  

Hmmmm…as for this one, she’s “dada Ba” all the way. Goes everywhere with a chauffeur driven car and never in a “Troski”. Money ain’t shit for her but her lack of adventure makes her stupidly naive! 

  • MISS INDEPENDENT

  

She walks and talks like she runs the world. She has it all – money, cars, clothes, accessories – you name it! She’s “fly” effortlessly and one thing though (for the guys), one silly move and out the door you go💁

  • THE TYPICAL JULIET

  

The least thing thou doeth, she thinketh thee is the most romantic person in the world. No matter how horrible thy voice is, just a verse of a love song will have her crawling at thy feet! Rose flowers, long walks at night, beachside escapades and cooking are just the kind of things that melt her heart😍💭 To her, just about everything is romantic!

  • GIRL-NEXT-DOOR

  

She is your average everyday kind of girl. Down to earth, ever friendly and never thinks too highly of herself. Her beauty is that which radiates from within unto the outside💞. She’s as real as it gets!

  • GOOD GIRL GONE BAD

  

Such girls have dual personalities. They usually have the innocent and angelic look yet the sort of things they can do is more than enough to shock the devil himself!😹 I mean there’s nothing wrong with having a good girl who does bad things – but there’s a thin line between this and hypocrisy😕

  • YAA GADAAFI

  

The “Yaa Gadaafis” are the squad leaders! The queen bees! The boss chicks! The area “gangalias”! ✌️Mess with her, and you end up messing with the entire squad. Whenever there’s confusion or a fight somewhere, you’ll find them at the very center of it. They talk the talk and walk the walk so if you know can’t handle the heat, then you have no business tampering in their playground in the first place.

  • DYNAMITE CHICK

  

The moment she walks into a room, every head turns! She’s beautiful, she’s intelligent, she’s hot, she has great legs, she’s IT!!! And the best part of it all is that she knows it! Even when she’s in a crowd, her presence definately  screams out loud!😎
Now, tell me..which kind of girl are you?😉😉 And if you’re a guy, which kind of girls are you attracted to?

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME1⃣ Life is all about stories. The beauty of it all is that everyone has a different story to tell and that’s what makes life interesting! (Like they say, we are in the same hell 🔥except we’re facing different devils👹) I LOVE to read! – anything and everything! Truth is….I’d rather read than watch a movie. My favourite authors of all time are Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham, John Green, Danielle Steele and Julia Roberts. If you haven’t read any of the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, then trust me, you haven’t read anything yet! 

2⃣ I’m outspoken. What it will take three years for someone to say, I’ll use three minutes to hit the nail on the head😶📌🔨. It’s like asking me if you look nice in an ugly navy green sweater😖 (not that I have anything against the colour navy green). Rather than lie and tell you how absolutely gorgeous you look in it – I wouldn’t comment on it at all. And if I did, I’d tell you how you remind me so much of a frog I saw the other night and suggest a different outfit.

3⃣ Speaking of colours, I simply adore LEMON GREEN💚. Why? I’m not going to lie to you about how it’s bright and funky and how it reminds me of nature (blah….blah). I love it because I love it!!😍

4⃣ I so love mp)t)mp)t), kenkey and pepper (preferably the one adjacent papaye and then tasty jerk😋) and then finally beans with plantain, in that order! I’m not really a food person (I’ve been told I have a disturbing eating pattern…😕) but I’d choose these three over any food any day.

5⃣ Oh and I enjoy cooking! I have this secret ambition of opening my own restaurant some day💭🍲. I love trying out new recipes (God being so good, I have four brothers who are ever eager to eat my food😂. I make sure they rate me after each meal just so I can take note of my progress.) I can make a three course meal out of refrigerator leftovers (not that I’m bragging😜) and you know the best part about cooking?? – The compliments and look of satisfaction I get from those who are brave enough to eat my food😂😂.

6⃣ Okay, and I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that I’m a PHOTOGBEE 📷 and a proooudd one at that!! Wherever you see a camera, you’ll see me in front of it posing. I always jokingly tell my friends that when I die, rather than use the conventional style of writing tributes, my funeral brochure should be an entire photo gallery instead, capturing every highlight of my life😌.

7⃣ I believe in God! 🙏📖Very much! (It doesn’t mean I’m “cref” either) God has done so much for me and I’ll be a fool to deny His very existence. I’m not exactly “spiritual” but gradually I’ll get there some day. My favourite verse in the entire Bible is Ecclesiastes 9:11 

“I have observed something else under the sun

The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race

And the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle

The wise sometimes go hungry

And the skilful are not necessarily wealthy

And those who are educated don’t always lead Succesful lives

It is all decided by chance, 

By being at the right place at the right time..”

This is my guiding principle in life.

8⃣ I’m a music freak🎶. Music just has a way of sending you to a place that nothing and no one else can😍. Isn’t it strangely weird that there’s a song for every mood?!! My favourite genres are rock, a bit of country and then the 80s and 90s classic love songs! I just can’t understand how people can live a life without a hint of Tina Turner, a doze of Whitney Houston and a touch of Toni Braxton!😱 – like omg! Like….are you okay? Like really okay?! Oh and I’m a sucker for anything “RIHANNA”!!! 

9⃣ Underneath all the layers of confidence and make-up and hype and all the brick walls I’ve carefully built around me, I’m an emotional mess on the inside! Every now and then I feel like a helpless little girl with a lot of emotional baggage weighing me down. I’m a very shy person and the very few people who are brave enough to want to know me inside out, are those who eventually come across it.

I’m not perfect… But I’m me.☺️

🔟 I’m pretty sure you’ve figured out by now that I WRITE🙈 I’m no Sidney Sheldon but I sure as hell will definitely get there one day!💫😎✌️
