Rolayo's Journal: 'Perception (Part 1)'

Rolayo's Journal is the very interesting story of a young lady. It's a journal that showcases what she passes through- the fun times, the not-so-fun times, the temptations and the trials of her every day life. It's a journal being kept for her unborn child who she plans to call-"Kikelomo"....It's being featured on this blog occasionally on Tuesdays. Just incase you missed the last journal entry you could catch up HERE

Here's the 34th journal entry...Enjoy!

Title: "Perception (Part 1)"

Dear Kike,

Today, I went fabric shopping!!! Hehee! I don’t know which is more exciting for me; buying clothes, or buying fabric (see me talking like I’m one cash madam like that. Anyway, I claim it!). I had already told my companions that they shouldn’t get upset if we went through the market and I didn't pick anything, because I can be like that a lot of times. If I plan to get something, and I have a clear idea of what I’m looking for, if I don't see that exact thing or something similar, I would probably not just get anything. On the other hand, I have my rare moments of spontaneous purchases.

True or False?

MUST READ: Her Story

It doesn’t actually take as much as most people think it takes to fall in love. I was twenty seven and not so fresh out of school. I graduated at twenty from a Babcock University and was through with NYSC by twenty one. And as if I was walking on some gilded star, I landed a lucrative job as the assistant to the senior assistant to the directors of a major oil and gas firm (yes, assistants have their own assistants ;) ). 

Over time, I have grown in the business, and three years ago, one of the directors decided to venture out on his own when the firm refused to take a risk and pursue a certain deal. As a sharp Lagos girl, I had rightly guessed that the deal was gold and so I moved with him when he set up. It wasn’t easy in that first year, moving from the comfort and certainty of my first office but now, we are a thriving oil and gas firm, and I am the senior assistant to him, the sole owner. I am more or less the next most powerful person in the company after him. And I am just twenty seven with my own house in Lekki Phase 1, a state of the art SUV and an official salon car with my own driver. And yes, I now have my own assistants. I was a bigz girlz, and I enjoyed life to the fullest, like Wizkid sang London today, Lagos tomorrow, Reks baybay lokeloke, omo jaiye jaiye *pauses to play the song and do an Azonto to it :D *.
