Daily Prompt: Never Gonna Give You Up


, , , , , ,






Well Daily Post, how can i put this hum I’m not really vice free (i know shocker). at least not if you can call what i’m about to describe vice. I think it’s more like a bad habit. For some it’s smoking or drinking, well for me it’s TV and i love love music. My friends say i’m bad company sometimes. Like when i retire in my own little world and completely tune out listening to some music, watching something be it tv show, movie or just random videos. 

 Like right now i’m not alone but, i have my headphones on, listening to music while writing this. My friends know i love them, and i’m here if they need me, and it’s not because i don’t socialise well or don’t like being around people. Might be because i have so little time to myself with school, on some of my free time i would like to do something i really love: a good ol’ movie or an episode of FRIENDS i have already watched countless times. Also when i start a show, and i like it, i won’t rest until i’m finished with it. My friends say i watch way too much TV and i don’t think i’m ever going to give it up (even if i’m too busy with work i will find a way). I’m not counting music, because loving music like i do should never be considered a vice or a bad habit. 

So yeah i’m addicted to TV and music, but the situation is under control…i think. 





Daily Prompt: West End Girl


, , , ,



For me it was something completely different. I live in France, but i’m from Guinea-Conakry, a small country in West Africa. It’s one of the least developed countries, so the average population is very poor, but as the French say “Il y fait bon vivre”.

My familly is definitely not wealthy, but not poor either. So somewhere in between i’ll say. I had very happy upbriging. Sure there were no movie stars, or palaces, but ididnt need anything more than i already had. I got to travel often, i was in a great school, and as long as i had my books i was happy. There were very few distractions: no movie theater, or bowling, or anything you might find almost everywhere in the occident. Which left books, TV, swimming pools, the beach and sports.

I have a very large familly and we lived in the ‘centre ville’, in a very very loud and dusty part of Conakry. People getting busy early in the morning, anxious to get started with work be it carrying heavy stuff, selling food or all kinds of stuff. Most of our neighbors were very poor and often worked to have food for the next day. We were often left without electricity for days or every two days at best, so at night we would just sit ouside, “stargazing” because of the fresh air or light candles inside play games, tell stories with all the cousins and sometimes uncles and aunts. Or sometimes those who couldnt afford the solar panel would gather at the households who could to watch games, the news or movies.

Some might say i was happy because i didnt know anything else. But i really was. Most of us cousins and friends now live in Europe, Asia or US but i know we all wouldnt trade these moments for anything in the world.
