Heeeeeeyyy Everybody? How’s everyone doing today? Yesterday I was sick!! Damn those tummy cramps. I’m well now thanks to the BIG MAN! And…
Today I am very happy to announce that I received my grades for this year and I PASSSSSED!! Which means I’m moving onto my final year w/ no referrals! I’m really relieved now that I’m in the know – the waiting and waiting and waiting is the hard part. October will mark the begining of my final year of my Undergrad study at university and to quite honest I’m looking forward to settling in and giving this very crutial year all I have. I want to graduate at the top nothing less. EXCELLENCE 24/7 & Nothing Less! I know it won’t be easy, nobody said it would but I think as long as I am dedicated and motivated and I know that I’m passionate about whatever I’m working at, all will be well. So Im not scared…rather anxious actually.
For all my academics out there working hard to get the good grades, let me here you say “EXCELLENCE 24/7 & Nothing Less“!
So in April I jet-setted off to L.A (BEST TRIP EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR), right now I’m in St. Lucia but can you guess where Ms.Zindzi is headed next? Hmmm….Imma let y’all in a lil’ later.
SHOUT OUT to my cousin Elaine for the comment and for pointing me in the right direction – Thanks a milli!

Just came down from all the hype on this, my lucky Sunday and read this Twittering by B.Scott “Good morning love muffins! God bless you on this glorious Sunday! “…and it got me to thinking that I should blog about what just happened to me like less than 10 mins ago.
I’m at my friends flat, and her fire alarm went off. Now, when I lived here (in her gated community) I always went out at the sound of the alarm, but this time I was hesitant for some reason. I don’t know. I just didnt feel like going out. So I ignored it, and I sat on Twitter bickering about how annoying the sound of the alarm was and how much I wanted it to shut up and go away!
Not more than 5 minutes into the alarm, a someone came up banging on all the doors of the flat shouting and yelling – “there’s a fire!”…”there’s a fire!” Instantaneously I WAS SHOOK! I wasn’t sure what my next move should be, its almost as if I kinda froze-up. Anyway, I eventually made my way out of the building and I could smell the smoke! I was scared, I was really scared. I managed to smile and laugh about it while I was outside but I was really scared!
I called my friend, but no answer! I called a friend of my friend’s, but no answer! I called TT, she picked up. We spoke for a bit, I just needed to hear a familiar voice because I was soooo shook, she was my comforter in that short space of time without her even knowing how much she helped me.
All the hype was over I got back to the room…I logged back on to Twitter and saw B.Scotts Twittering and it hit me that today was one of my little blessings. Remember just last night I blogged about ‘Life is What You make It‘? And I said “Life is filled with so many blessings – as small as crossing from one side of the road to the next without being harmed to as great as giving birth to another or fulfilling a life long dream….We really should make the most of every little blessing, and make those blessings the focus of our lives“…See how every little thing in our life is a sign! If you asked me last night, why I wrote the post I really would not have been able to tell you why, but now I know I was driven to write that post because God was trying to tell me something.
I am now more thankful for my life than I was yesterday and the day before that!
What if I hadn’t come out the building? What if the fire had been biger than it was?
Thank you Lord! AMEN!
Ppl, appreciate your life and never take any moment for granted!
Hello Beautiful Ppl.
Today I’d like to intriduce a new feature here at Ms★Zindzi.com where I feature one of my many favourite blogs, ‘Blog Of The Moment’.
The aim of BOTM is to give my beautiful readers a chance to check out other great blogs that I follow. It’s all well and good that I mention, or list them, but dedicating an entire post to one blog every so often gives my readers a more detailed description as to what they can expect from some of my favourite reading spots, and consequently give them the extra push to visit. Being an up and coming blogger, I know how hard it can be to attract readers and build up loyal readership and so this is my way of networking and trying to help others with their blogs while also helping my own. – Ms.Zindzi
Today’s featured blog is Kissing Life created and edited by my friend, TiTi. She always has an opinion on what’s HOTT and what’s NOTT in relationships and and fashion, through sharing her own personal stories. The girl knows her stuff!! Be sure to Check out Titi’s blog and leave comments and suggestions and general encouragement!!

And also, be sure to check out my list of Ms.Zindzi’s Favourite Clix (somewhere along the right hand side of the page) and show them some love!
A recent conversation with Mojo sparked this somewhat unkind reminder…
Almost 2 years ago I landed on British soil for the first time (call me a freshie, or whatever you like – but I wouldnt have had it any other way!) and began my life as a University student.
Now that I think about it, what being a ‘university student’ meant for me is totally different from what it means to the average university student. I mean aside from the fact that Ms.Zindzi is anything but average – I had to make a huuuuge step out of my comfort zone and create a life of my own without a lot of key people (mother, siblings and friends).
For the first time I had to make all my decisions – what clothes to buy, food to eat, where to go, what time to be back in my room etc. Just a lot of little decisions that I really wasn’t making on my own while I lived with my family. – And that’s not a bad thing at all.
I came to realized that the islands were too small for me. I grew up very sheltered and I was and still am very thankful for that era in my life. But I also understood and appreciated the value of no longer being sheltered.
Of course, I now have a lot of responsilities and suffered many consequences and that OKAY. That’s all part of growing up – as scary as it is – but its all part of it.
Anyway…That’s not what I wanted to blog about today.
Some day ago, Mojo and I were chit-chattin’ as per usual and it hit me that I am only months away from completing my 2nd year at uni and that means that I only have one more year to go…which also means that my UK experiencee is slowly coming to an end.
Am I really ready to pack up and leave yet another place? Will I ever be?
I think one of the most beautiful things about my life is that my family and I have moved around quite a bit. Its made my siblings and I so much smarter, puts us waaaay ahead of our years and makes our mother this even greater person.
But the UK experience was all me. I created all these memories. So am I really ready to pack up and leave? I’m gonna leave so many great people behind….I think the closer time draws the more scared I become. I am really dreading all the decisions I am going to have to make soon…
I need to start planning my next move/step. What am I gonna do when I’m through with uni in 2010?
The older I get the moving becomes so much harder. And at this age, and at this stage in my life, any move means I will have to fund it myself. I mean, I can’t totally eliminate Mom from the decision-making process she’s so smart and I’m always asking her for her help and expertise in certain things. This will definitely be one of those areas.
Oh gosh! Growing up is hard!!!
Don’t you just wish you could go back to you Barbie and Ken days? When Pokemon was the shiiiiiiiiiit? When you got told to go to bed? And got a personal waking up in the morning? When you had breakfast made and waiting on you in the mornings?
So I walked into Iceland today with the intention of getting cash-back and would therefore pick up any CHEAP item(s) just to get cash-back from the till-point.
Upon walking-in I thought to grab 2 cans of sardines, 50p each (that’s MUCHO expensivo compared to Asda!), so that I can make my credit-crunch, on-a-budget, aint-got-no-money, broke-ass specialty, ‘Noodles and Sardines Soup’ (try it!) and then I remembered my juice was nearly done so it would be a good idea to get another carton.
I picked up the sardines but instead of getting the same juice-drink I bought last time, I decided I should get something bigger and fizzy. I made my way down to the fizzy drink section and being the credit-crunch, on-a-budget, aint-got-no-money, broke-ass student that I am I headed straight to the first bargain in sight!
There was a buy 3 two litre bottles of no brand name fizzy drinks for £1. I thought twice before picking it up because I had a similar experience @ Farm Foods one time and the drink was HORRIBLE! But then I thought ‘Nahhhhhh, nevermind. Just get it!’ So I did. And on my way home I kept thinking about the decision I made to buy those drinks and kept wondering if I would regret it. But I dismissed the thought because I found consolation in the fact that I bought flavours that I knew I had to like! – Limeade, Cherryade & Cream Soda.
So I get in my flat, packed the bottles into my fridge, put my dinner in the oven and did all the usual stuff I had to do. My food finished 25mins later and there I was well anticipating my DEEEEE-LISH food and my sweeeet sweeet new soda from Iceland!
I put my food on the plate, and then I reached into the fridge and got my new SWEEET SWEEET soda, which by the way (just to remind you) I was HIGHLY anticipating. Poured it into my glass, picked up my glass, picked up my plate and proceeded to the bedroom to meet TT and eat while I watch a DVD (‘What Happens in Vegas’)
I was soooo anxious about this new SWEEET SWEEET soda that I decided I couldn’t wait any longer to try it and took a sip on my way to the room…And guess what?!
The soda was NOT even SWEEEEET AT ALL!!! In fact the goddamn thing tasted DIET!!! And flat! Can you just imagine?! 3 BIG ASS BOTTLES YOU KNOW!!!! I’m so upset…And the thing that gets me is that this has happened to me before!!! I’m so mad at myself…CHEAP ASS!!
So TT posted some discussion questions on her group on FB (by the way if you’re a blogger and you’re on FB please JOIN!) and after I replied I re-read what I wrote and I thought that it would be a good idea to post my reply on here as well. So here goes:
I think I managed to keep the majority of my year thus far very peaceful so far. Not that I expected anything different. Its just that, now that I think about it, its been very peaceful. Yet to achieve? I am yet to complete this very important year at Uni. I want to ensure that I get really good grades to count toward that 1st class degree that, by the Grace of God and HARD WORK, I will graduate with!
I try not to think of the things I haven’t gained and focused on what I have. Again, my year has been very quiet and not very eventful – and thats not at all a bad thing. I have more time for myself, and for the people closest to me. So I guess Its safe to say that I have gained and I am trying to maintain a better relationship with my friends.
Ummm, I am very very comfortable right now and I am not searching for anything. I do hope to keep my sanity and my happiness at a maximum this year and I am trying to make sure that I never let unimportant people affect my life. I also pray and hope to always stay true to myself, and never pretend to be what I think others want me to be. And lastly, I pray that God allows me to follow my heart always and I hope he continues to shower me with blessings.
