Wee morning hours…
I just came across a post by middleclassnigeriangirl (the lass has caught my heart) where she writes about her social media life. It was a really fun read and subsequently I downloaded Pinterest to my phone…you might have heard of it. Still not sure of that decision but, I’ve heard people gush nice things about the app. Anyway, here I am, new user barely a few minutes old and I’m creating a “board” tagged “my future shoe addiction”…Lol. And because Pinterest is basically a platform that lets you collect ideas it gave me the idea for this post!
“My future shoe addiction”
Is that even a thing? Future addictions? Like do people actually plan for them? My answer would be “yes!” I guess all I have just done is give it a name and now a post. In my head, I think it’s a hyperbole I have given to a certain number of things that I couldn’t possibly afford to achieve at this point in my life but, wouldn’t mind doing so in the future…because then I’d definitely be able to afford them. And addiction might be a strong word but i hope you can relate.
Now this is the part where I tell you to be careful how you see this post, especially if you are a very spiritual person (like I’m aspiring to be) or even just a lifelong conservative because your chances of not misinterpreting it are actually slim to none and for this I am truly sorry😚.
However, in a bid to allay your fears, i would say this: In your mind’s eye you probably see a silly boy who has quite knowingly set for himself traps in which he’ll most likely get caught and with no hope of respite. In mine, I see one who has “known” addictions and will forever be wary of them but who also has a very vivid picture of what a good life should be and feel like.
I am just here to paint you that picture as I see it and so without further ado…
“MY FUTURE SHOE ADDICTION”
Who doesn’t love a good pair of shoes? Monks maybe but excluding them who else? My love however goes a little deeper than that of the average person and also unfortunately, more than my pocket can afford at this time. So, i shelf it…for the time appointed.
So I shelf it…for the time appointed
I imagine a walk-in closet packed to the brim with well arranged (because obviously they can’t be scattered all over the place…they expensive😩).
Christian Louboutin brogue shoes, Nike rosheruns, Air Jordans, Adidas yeezy boosts, Balenciagas and what have you! Definitely some red bottoms too. Like a personal shoe collection. Just because they are nice and it’s nice to have nice sturvs.
“MY FUTURE HEADPHONE ADDICTION”
I use headphones as a general term depicting all the stuff you play music over and if you are a music lover such as myself the list will generally tend to play out in your head. This one I already started howbeit on a much smaller scale. You can always trust me to go for the more expensive one of two earpieces on display. My reasoning? “The more expensive one just has to sound better”🤒.
It literally amazes me when I see people preoccupied with a just “anyhow” headphone and apparently enjoying the music too😐. It’s hard to imagine falling completely in love with “the glory album” on just any headphones and these are pretty average! Just saying. Sound quality is everything. You never know what you’re missing until you switch it up. Add the skull candies, beats by dre and B&O’s to my collection (just the thought of them!).
“The more expensive one will always sound better“
“MY FUTURE WATCH ADDICTION”
My uncle once told us (very important people too) that the really rich men can only be distinguished by their shoes and watches…not necessarily apparel. Whether this is true I cannot say but safe to say that good watches bring a sense of healthy self-esteem and flair without even trying! I have always been a sucker for mechanical watches because they stand out, even the not so expensive ones. Sometimes, I think it best to wear just a bracelet in the stead of a watch with little value unless said value is the sentimental kind. Enough said. Add rolexes to my collection.
“MY FUTURE CAR ADDICTION”
Again, who doesn’t love a nice, expensive, flashy car? Me…I’m more of a diamond in the rough kinda guy when it comes to them. I don’t necessarily want a plane or a helicopter or a yacht. If you gimme any of them though, I’ll thank you (who no like better thing?). With cars, i don’t play around. Safe to say, I already have my list but this one i will not be revealing for the sake of all these monitoring spirits😒. Seriously, pressure is off…I don’t need stress in my life. Imagine having a jeep wrangler though, beauty in ruggedness! Definitely my kind of car.
And so folks, with these few points of mine I’d like to call it a wrap on this one and try to get some sleep. I’m not greedy, just ambitious.
Life lessons: Dear reader, ambitions are not a bad thing to have. A vivid picture of them written down is even better. This way you’ll learn to work towards them from your youth.
Christianity is not a lifelong sentence of poverty as some have sadly come to believe! Be properly guided.
And even if you don’t manage to accomplish all that you’ve set out to do or possess, we are not judged as successes or failures based on these things. More tangible goals exist.
PS. I’d love to know what your own future addiction(s) (again…hyperbole🙂) would look like.
