A weekend I don’t want to forget

This weekend had so much in it and things I did that I never want to forget. I had some ups and downs but mostly ups.

Friday was brilliant! I went with RLabs to the Social Media for Teens class graduation. Chisana Tours had to do a tour on Table Mountain. So Bradley Naidoo asked me to speak about the fauna and flora of our Wonder of Nature! It was out of my comfort zone but I did it! I was a tour guide with Bradley for a few minutes. This time it was different to the normal tours I spoke on with my fellow Tourism students at CPUT. It felt good sharing my interest in the Mother City’s beauty.

The night I attended youth which was super awesome! We all working on a dance we will perform in church when we ready (I hope it’s soon). I love the people in the youth really, we like family or better!

My Saturday started with sad news of three matriculants that lost their lives in a horrific car crash and the forth one who fought for his life in hospital but today he is thankfully okay, just injured. My heart goes out to their family and friends. I’m not even that close to them but I still feel the pain, I can’t imagine what they going through. They are in my prayers. But my Saturday was well spent with my good friend Timothy. Always brightening my day.

My Sunday was once again brilliant! It was the Biggs Family day and this time Ramaine, (one of my family members who is in show business) she put together a production that many of us took part in. There was some singing, dancing, beat boxing, drag queen performances which was so funny, I even sang a solo in front of all those people with my sister, Amy’s support from behind the curtain lol. There was dedications, honouring, handing out gifts and our very own book compiled by Glendor with contributions from all the families. There was even modelling of Grizelda’s fashion line “Zadah designer wear” and also Marlene’s matric ball dresses she made. I got a chance to wear my matric ball dress and show off my aunty’s stunning work. We all had so much fun in the production, watching it and mingling and meeting new family members.

I love my Big Biggs family.

Be careful what you wish for.

I just love the feeling you get after being sick!

Last Wednesday I woke up with a terribly sore and scratchy throat and my voice was husky. I was so happy and loved the sound of my voice so much, when I tried to talk that I didn’t want to stop talking and laughing. I always said that I envy the people whose voices go husky because I wanted to hear how I would sound. I wanted my voice like that but I didn’t ask for the pain to come with it in my throat. 

I was supposed to rest my voice but I didn’t have the chance. I couldn’t resist screaming and reacting to the movie Breaking Dawn Part 2 that I went to go watch the Friday night with my work colleagues at RLabs. I just loved the way my voice sounded but again I say I hated the pain and having nights coughing myself awake.

The Saturday morning I woke up and couldn’t take it any more. My mom took me to the doctor that concluded that I have bronchitis and gave me medicine. And now today my voice is healing, I’ll miss the sound of it though but I can finally sing again (excited).

I feel great, back to my old self. Thanks for all the prayer and care 🙂 God bless

Learning something new

Today in Introduction to Social Media class we got introduced to a new app by intel called What About Me? where you can connect all your social media accounts and get stats on things like what you mostly talk about, most liked pictures on facebook, who you connect with the most. It shows you all your recent stats, you can do so much more on it.

My Stats

Very interesting app, great Introduction to Social Media class at RLabs today.

Just Me!

It’s been a while since my first blog yes I know, it’s called procrastination, something myself and I’m sure many others suffer from. Well, now to introduce myself as I said I would. . .

I am a 2nd year Tourism Management student, age 19 (I went to school early). I am doing my 6 month internship at the moment with Chisana Tours at RLabs (Bridgetown). My identifier is “the girl with the long hair and glasses”. I’m part of my church’s worship team so I love singing with a passion especially songs that makes sense. I love singers and dancers and supporting people who have talent, it just makes me so excited. There’s not much that I dislike but to name a few, it’s reading and certain types of food (I’m picky with everything).

Starting with my household, I have 1 awesome sister that is older than me but shorter than me (I should stop saying that, it’s not nice). She loves me to bits and has the smart mind that I want. I have a supermom that really is good at just anything! She’s super smart, funny, straight forward, and brilliant at directions and remembering things. My dad is a wonderful man of God! He’s like the coolest pastor ever. He’s super fun and easy to talk to and very wise! I try to take all his advice. Then there’s my ma that lives with us, she likes making jokes with me and going the extra mile to do things for us. I have the most awesome friends ever, would never trade them. There are my childhood friends, my friends at home, at church, campus, school days and at the office where I do my internship. I love how they all understand me or accept me and all my weirdness, jolly and random traits that I have.

Crazy Me

I say I’m weird but I actually mean unique, I’m not like anyone else. I talk a lot, repeat myself and babble when I’m nervous. I focus on the good in everybody which is known to be one of my weaknesses as my loved ones tells me it makes me blind. I asked people what they think of me and it was all positive things people would say to make me feel good (and it worked) but I would describe myself as a special soft rose that only comes around once. I’m honest, funny (if you understand my humour) I’m pure hearted, hate getting into trouble of any sort, strong conscience I guess so I always try to do what’s right and good, I just underestimate myself a lot. I love big tight hugs, listening to people talk, helping and serving people, lifting others higher than me then I end up putting myself down, that’s not good but I keep doing it and feel intimidated when I shouldn’t be. I have a bad memory, horrible with car names, any brand names, phones and technology but RLabs and my mom helps me with that, she has her own blog too, Lady Socialite. I enjoy chatting on social networks and I laugh for everything and try to see humour in any situation. I love order, principles and things to be done right. I like sleeping, I have a lazy side, and I would chill and do nothing forever if I could. I’m bad with decisions, following directions, my handwriting and maths. I don’t always cry for movies or funerals I don’t know why, doesn’t mean I’m heartless.

I love sharing too and sharing this blog with you, it’s a way to express yourself, perfect for me and my thoughts. Hope you enjoyed getting to know me. God bless.
