Nappily Ever After

I love nappily ever after so much


Violet sets her alarm extra early so she can sneak out of bed, fix her hair, and sneak back into bed so her boyfriend thinks she wakes up like this. She does not. An exacting mother made sure that Violent has spent her whole life hiding her true hair. But even with all the tools and chemicals and salon appointments in the world, Violet is still Cinderella waiting for the clock to strike midnight. When it rains, or is even humid, the magic disappears and her hair reverts back to its natural state. So her life revolves around monitoring the weather and keeping her boyfriend’s hands away from her head.

On her birthday, Violet’s hair is perfect (though not without some drama). She is MV5BOTNhMWM0ZDUtZDI0Ny00OTVjLTgzMDctZTk4NWQwZmM3YmFiXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODQzNTE3ODc@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1500,1000_AL_expecting a ring from her boyfriend of 2 years and instead gets a puppy.

The Battle for Attention.

The first impression of course is the ultimate feeling of humans. It is “love at first sight.” The beholder’s judgement glimpse, justifies this ingrained emotion of appreciation.

But why is it that almost everyone is rushing to attract so much attention? People turning heads,simply gratifies their ego and self trust.

We are busy , pulling latest trends in fashion. How can you be left behind with Gucci designs, Louis Vuitton and Fenty. You’re considered an outcast if you ain’t doing this , especially in my city of Nairobi.

To be in the league of the oldies, you must be living the life , walking the talk of town. You have a ” dirty language ” if you are not hanging out in famous spots around the city, they are simply considered as Holy Grails. If you’re living a sober life then, you haven’t seen the light of the world, you’re an amateur maybe old fashioned. Marijuana is on another level. It has been “praised and sanctified”, that it’s use is glorified.

The era of sponsors, who promise lavished life styles, and who the hail are my age mates not to heed to this call of life sophistication? Riding in those comfy rides around town, enjoying different cuisines in top rated restaurants grants them a feeling of “heaven on earth”.

The era of ripple hype generated on social media platforms. Right now people are willing to even post nudes just for likes. Publicity is what my little generation is craving for.

Sex is the new addiction right now. I remember reading in the holy scriptures about the value of sex. That’s not the case out here. It is the new hobby. Don’t even over think that only adults are the only ones enjoying this forbidden passion, even the small children have been predisposed into so much of it. Their minds are far much corrupted.

Why all this is done is simply to attract attention. The feeling maybe its comforting. But it is to some extent a dreaded feeling. So many side effects that ruin a lot of lives.

Medics have found out that some people who crave for attention have a Histrionic Personality Disorder(HPD). This disorder makes them feel bad when not recognized in a group of people. In street language they are called ” attention whores”.

Respect earned is better than attention which is solicited. But should we embrace the attention seeking narcissists or leave them on their own lanes?
