I really want say welcome to my ego trip but I won’t. You’ve figured that here comes a load of self-centredness *toothy grin*
Name: Michelle, I’ve never had a nickname but recently my bro Mitch Ocholla has baptised me.. Mijelle and for payback I call him Mijell.( Long story coming up.) Anyway coz of a Facebook baptism a few years back I now go as ‘Michelle TheBrand’ and on a good day ‘Michelle Michelle TheBrand’
Date of birth: May 19th
Relationship: According to society I should have been hitched long ago..but hey (middle finger to society) maybe I let you down.
Best friends: I have many special friends but I cannot list them all. Yes I believe it’s ok to have more than one bestie (yeah I said bestie, Sue me).
Living Situation: A one bed roomed digs all by myself. I love this. My living room’s pretty unfurnished but I’ll call it spacious and minimalistic for now. I have these really annoying international neighbours who seem to breed overnight. Now they’re cooking in the garage. Whatever I write next may be considered hate speech so I will refrain. I’m thinking of getting a potted plant and a gold firsh so that when I travel I can be that chick who is looking for someone to care for her pets and plants..hahaha. I think a cactus will do just fine.
Health: I’m sort of asthmatic, though I threw away my inhaler a few years ago. The downside is when I take the tabs, I get the shakes. Hilarious when you watch me coz I look like an alchie. I have an underactive thyroid as well, which messes up with my metabolism and makes it suuuuuper slow. The fun side is I don’t get hungry that easily. The mscheeew side is the weight gain, the ‘adams apple’ LOL, depression and yeah now hair loss. Sucks bricks I tell you but I laugh at myself through this.
Smokes: Tried to when I was younger, it was cool… Then I quit in 05. A few of my friends still smoke so once or twice I’ve been curious to see what I loved about the cancer stick and for sure, I almost gagged on all occasions.
Temper: Well I’m a woman so it’s NOT even, yeah in all fairness. Someone mentioned to me yesterday that they tread carefully around me. I kinda liked the sound of that but also figured that this person doesn’t really know me. … I love laughter, I don’t like people taking advantage of me so I have this ‘don’t mess with me’ screensaver face BUT…I can be so loving and giving that you feel like you landed in heaven when you’re around me. (But I save that GAY part for my peoples like Joy Oww and Millie Ocholler)
Occupation: Drat. Copywriter. Wanna Be Advertising GURU. Aspiring Talk Show host and producer. Music is my drug.
Born and raised in what used to be the green city in the sun… yet for some reason I spend a lot of the time wishing I was elsewhere. I wanna see the world and live in Iten. I want to go shopping in Florence, take Facebook pics at the Great Wall of China. I want to go to some European town and be the only black person there. I want to sit on Hitler’s grave if I can find it, high-five the pope and a couple more weird things like take a picture with Seal and his yellow nail-polish Oh boy… this list could go on like the beat.
My parents spoiled me… not quite with possessions but with love. As for me being spoiled… it might have to do with the fact that I’m the last kid of 5. My siblings called me Miss Piggy for a while. I really didn’t mind that coz I adored her. I mean she was ‘the girl with THE FROG’… My Dad’s so fresh and I think that has coloured me a great deal. I’ve gotten away with a great deal because of that. Mad props to my mama too. She holds my deepest darkest secrets and is the voice of reason in my life.
I’m neither a night nor day person. It really depends on what season of my life I’m in. I work better under pressure. I love deadlines. You know, like that race to the microwave. When you switch it off just before it gets to 0:00. I get crazy ideas about stuff especially songs. Right now, I feel a little stifled coz I don’t really have a musical outlet. I’m writing songs for other people…I don’t know who just yet. All I know is the songs aren’t mine. I’m writing mine too. I don’t want to die without putting them out. In fact I think it’s time I wrote my bucket list . First things first…A BUCKET!
Unless I was out late the night before, I can’t sleep past 7 am. I think I got that from my mama. She’s different though…up at 5 and out of bed no later than 5.30 and yeah she always is the last one to go to bed. I salute you mommy!!
Love :Music, rain, storms, procrastinating, winter (I’ve never experienced it, closest I came was sticking my head in the freezer), Kenyan men, piercings on others(and maybe on me…not counting the 10 piercings in my ears), black , white and red, chocolate, Facebook, sun, friends, Fanta, Pasta, Tuna and sleep.
Despise: Being lazy, being jobless, being broke, indecision, olives, and people who think they know me even though they never met me.
Inner being: Mommy type ROTFL, Taurus. Moon sign, Element – Earth. Birthstone – Emerald. Chinese zodiac – Monkey
People born in the Year of the Monkey are the erratic geniuses of the cycle. *clears throat*
Famous People with Moon in Taurus: (I shudder)
of course this is all ‘takataka’ but it can be fun to read *smile*
Hair color:Black when it’s there
Nails:Short..very..ok I bite them when I’m stressed… I get acrylics from time to time.
Height: or 5’5″
Weight:Le sigh… Blame it on the tttttttttthyroid..LMAO! (I wish I really could LMAO)
Piercings: 4 in one ear, 6 in the other… but i’m piercing my tongue soooooon… (where’s Lina and Fiona, my tongue crew?)
Clothes:I’m not much of a dress person but I have a couple I like..My wardrobe’s growing.
*FYI, my international neighbours are making so much noise* I’m cleaning my gun…..
