Nnenna Don't Mind Them; You've Blown UP already
I smell a rat on this show. So Nnenna got kicked off after they got through the photoshoot in Thailand. That was so hella wack. Talking about being an snob, being bored and not bringing anything else to the table. Whatever Haters!!! First you give her wigs to make her look petrifying and then in the shoot where you 'really' need hair ya'll don't give her any. The fact that she won several competition should have swayed the judges but they are really intimidated by Africaness it is so annoying.
But Nnenna that little spill about Nigerian Embassy...hmh.. what was that about? My dear the show is not MGBN. You could have pocketed that speech, only Nigerians would have understood what you meant by that.
I was going to get into the long story but I am kinda upset with Tyra and her posse for taking awya my television watching motivation. Anyways may the best gal win. I am rooting for Danielle now that they basically told Nnenna to go back to Africa.
But as Nigerians, you can trust that we will run with whatever opportunity we get. And as a true Igbo girl Nnenna will have no trouble employing some Naija skillz ( 419 and 'IMM' inclusive.... IMM stands for I Ma Mmadu which is Igbo term for connnections) to get bigger than the show. Who knows, the possibilities are endless from here on. Shoot bounce Michelle Dede from hosting Big Brother Nigeria an dput Nnenna there abeg. So this may or may not be my last wrap up on ANTM this season. We'll see how I feel next week. I was into this because of Nnenna but now she is gone I don't know if there's any point. Jade's butchering of the English language on the other hand might just keep me writing though. The girl can make words up die. What the heck is 'analystic', 'releasement', 'derogatoriness' or 'withandle'?. We'll see.
Dear Younger Adaure.
How are you doing? It's been a while since we'd last seen but I'll always treasure the memories of the moments we both shared. I've been on this long journey called Real Life. Child lemme tell ya, it ain't all it's been cut out to be. So before you get all carried away with wanting to grow up, let me give you a few heads up, a few pointers on what the deal really is.
First of all don't change anything that you've done, only do it better and diligently. Always aim and stive to bethe best that you can be and take things a lot more seriously than you have. Put God first and read your bible, not just for Cadet quizes and CRK, but to learn from the word and pursue Christ.
RUN as far away from malls, credit cards and whomever says you wouldn't need math in university. I know your knuckles are recovering from Mrs Desalu's ruler over that long division assignment. It's tough but it's going to be tougher when you get to University. I'll leave it at that, you'll see what I mean when you get here.
Enjoy your childhood. Get the best out of it because those will be the best years of your life. Enjoy and appreciate your culture more than you have. Those trips to the village with the family, riding bikes down the hills with your cousins and siblings and hiding away in trees will give you a wealth of cherished memories. May be you can write a bout it in a book someday.
Stay in school and don't scale fences to go to Lagoon, Ransome Kuti and Computer Center. Ignore the peer pressure and teenage insecurities. You are so better than that. Let the bullies, popular, pretty and rich kids have their fill. Be confident and true to yourself. Look in that mirror and say to your self 'I am somebody'. You are your own immutable star and by God you will shine.
Beware of those who will prey upon your meekness, your genuinity and big heart. Guard that dearly, but don't be afraid to let love come in when it knocks. Hold your friends and family dearly because some of them will be your support when you are weary.
Finally, live each day as if it were the last day of your life, because one day it could be, and you'ld look on and see how you've missed out. Never sway from your convictions. Believe in yourself and your dreams. Stay focused on your goals and keep your eyes on the prize. The road will most certainly not be smooth. There will be challenges, lessons to learn and nay sayers. But if you follow my guide, watch and pray you'll do just fine. So far you've done well, after all look how I turned out. I know I am not perfect and still have kinks to work out, but every aspect of life is a work in progress. You'll see what I mean when you get here. That's all I got for now chic. Stay cool and Word to yo momma and your pops. Tell 'em I miss them and love em dearly. Cheers doll!!!
Yours in love and in Spirit
