I rushed home to do two things; burst a pimple and post a blog entry. One would think I had some urgent matter to attend to. I did, actually, but it got postponed. When I got home, I bursted the pimple – it wasn’t ripe so now I have a scar on my face. I didn’t get the post an entry though. Hopefully I will today.
On my way to work yesterday, I got an alert that Aisha Augie-Kuta left a comment on my blog 🙂 which was a pleasant surprise. Isn’t it funny how things come in full circle when you don’t realize. Have you noticed that it is at times when we don’t search frantically that we find? Its like there is a divine plan already set in motion and everything else just falls in place for whatever reason. I had mentioned Aisha in one of my entries just randomly not thinking that she would stumble upon my blog. C’est la vie! Aisha, if you are reading this, I love your pictures and I hope that someday I will have the pleasure of working with you.
Its been ages since I last posted an entry. A lot has happened since our last encounter. Allen & Fifth got featured on 2 awesome sites: Bella Naija (http://www.bellanaija.com/2009/07/22/bn-making-it-ese-aigbogun-of-allen-fifth-building-a-brand-one-tee-at-a-time/) and Nigerian Mafia (http://www.nigerianmafia.com/featured/). Allen & Fifth had its long awaited Launch Party. Big thank you to everyone that came out and showed support and my very good friend Ronke www.blueprintbyronke.com for putting everything together (xoxo). Allen & Fifth has also been getting t-shirt orders from Naija! How cool is that?! And finally, wait for it…wait for it…I QUIT THE GYM. A lot more is scheduled to happen and though it is all exciting, I have days when my nerves get the best of me. I am human after all and there are days when things go a little too fast in motion that I get a bit startled – kindda like motion sickness. I’m still working on that though. At the same time I love these little imperfections of mine because they remind me of my vulnerability.
till next time!
