Love actually has NOTHING to do with it

Do you have a song that you can finally relate to? I listened to ‘What’s Love Got to do with It’ recently and it slapped differently. Hot revelation. I wasn’t indulging in the sensational fuzz of affection, it was science haha.

Previously, I felt the lyrics to this iconic ear worm were too harsh to sing with the amount of vigour Ms Tina Turner sings it with. Why croon, without regret, that you don’t love someone or that the relationship was never serious?! Well after landing from a fun time in the clouds I get it. If you really consider the song, the writer urges you to not confuse a hot and fast flutter with the unquenchable fire of love. Love has nothing to do with butterflies but many times we hold on to that cheap emotion, and run till it knocks the wind out of us. A bit of a reality back-hand.

Please don’t be disheartened, use the song as a barometer to test wether you just enjoyed the hot flush or are willing to tread through the cold.


Memories are important

Google photos is a gem, I’ll be minding my business and then it will throw up a memory from 2008. A forgotten day, clean from my memory is retrieved and I laugh at how cool I thought I was. Side note: we should keep the same Piczo pose energy in this here 2020 and forever more amen.

As I reminisce on the curtains that hung in my room, the friends who were my riders and the hairstyles I rocked (who else put lollipops or combs in their hyper erect ponytails?), I’m super glad I didn’t get rid of those times. They remind me of when I could only imagine being an adult so I’m jealous of 13 year old me. I’m also thankful of the friends that always have their phone out, posting to stories and watsapping the footage later. I tend to live in the moment rather than spend time as the videographer. However, memories are important so snap everything.
