Straightness work for Loki, eq work for me 😚😚 I was thinking about making a short video compilation that shows how my riding has improved throughout the past 7 years since I just found some SUPER old videos. Thoughts?

Glints, sunbeams, flares, lustres, auroras, bokehs, flashes or scintillations. No matter which way light presents itself, we seem to be taken aback by its brilliancy. There's light everywhere. In the spark of your thought, the glare of your look, the flash of your smile and even in the blaze of your soul. We feel invincible in its presence and terribly vulnerable in its absence. We feel fortunate when we descry light in the depressing, low spirit darkness where we seem to be lurking around, hopeless. Infact, hope is the metaphysical denotement of light, for hope can be a perilous thing and so can light. We live our lives scouting for that gleam of light which you consider as your destiny, neglect how you grew up in the leeward side and with the darkness of life. We reach our destiny, which was the glare of light, we join hands, throw a warm hug and become friends with it, the best of friends, and forget how the dark path led us to it, how it nurtured us, how it made us strong and fit for survival. See we human beings always do this. The bright side is always considered good and the dark side is always considered bad. Light can be deceiving allegories, no matter how beautiful it may look. Well I have dwelled in the darkness for a long time now. Trust me, it's beautiful to be in the dark, and for that you would need no company. Darkness is the best company.

My day yesterday started off with the usual well wishes, this year snapchat made that more interesting as my first wishes were sent thru there. Then I went to meet up with my slick ass cuz and try to get a pedicure done, that was the part 2 of the Kings gift. She took me to her 'place', and unbeknownst to me told the people to do a manicure for me as well, cuz that was part of her gift to me. Since I'm not a really feminine chick I fell for it hook, line and sinker. I don't do this stuff on a regular, so I thought there was another part the pedicure when she said I wasn't done, even though my nails were well and dry. I was about to fight the Asian lady thinking she was trying to upsell me on something else. This girl will get me into serious trouble one day. Then afterwards my Itty Bitty dropped by after she finished work, literally to say Happy Birthday and hand me a present. She's another one that makes me smile, she didn't have to come after the long ass day she had, but she chose to. This is why I say my cousins are basically my brothers and sisters, well the ones that make the effort that is, and surprisingly there's quite a bit of them (both sides combined) that make me feel loved. I got a gift basket, pedicure and a dinner later today from my man, my niece and nephew apparently think i need to bath while their mother gave me a new nightie (which was really meant for the King's pleasure), while Itty Bitty rubbed the fact that I'm not feminine enough in my face. She gave me a great lil make up kit complete with instructions on how to use them. Lol, they clearly know me well enough. Now to get part 2 of this weekend on the way... 😊
