A friend asked me my definition of ‘perception’ after she concluded it is a false reality.

I told her perception could be true or false, but not be a yardstick for measuring fact. It is an individual’s opinion or understanding of a particular situation, person, people etc.

If two individuals, one biased and the other, straight forward are asked to relay their opinion about a particular issue, what do you think happens? The former will not tell the exact truth, while the latter will tell it just as it is. The former relays based on feelings while the latter, based on fact. Hence perception could either be true or false but doesn’t change the real fact.

perception
Perception could be ‘true’ or ‘false’ but not the ‘fact’
Our perception of the elements of life and are bound to differ, but the fact remains even though we might be unable to see it. It takes so much effort to recreate a person’s intuition because our brains are wired differently. Perception could be ‘true’ or ‘false’ but not the ‘fact’. It is an individual’s opinion.

 

Do you agree? What’s perception to you?

There is something I noticed on Sundays for a while now…

A lot of people complain or murmur that the sermon is taking a lot of time. But I think that’s not their worry. 

Their main worry is for the service to be over so that they can quickly go outside to take pictures which they would eventually post on social media.

Sunday these days is more of a fashion parade than to receive the word for the week ahead. Some even go as far as leaving in the middle of the service just to take pictures.

Sundays, for Fashion not Sermon

I am never against anyone dressing nice or looking good but the question is “what’s your main priority of going to church? “

If you doubt me, just open your Facebook or any social media application on Sundays and see for yourself, you will observe that Sundays are now for fashion, not sermons.

About the Bird Box movie…
I feel it possessed a superb concept but failed to satisfy the imagination of the audience.
It failed to explore the theme of blindness, whether or not the “being” is supernatural or even just psychological
It also failed to explore why exactly the “madness” affects sane people but only comforts the insane.
I also didn’t like the fact that the film failed to give us an insight into what happened to MGK (Machine Gun Kelly) and the police academy girl that ran away with the car. They should have shown what happened to them [probably a bad thing since what they did was very bad]. That hole was the deepest for me.

A Quiet Place Vs Bird Box
The book is better because it explained why the birds aren’t affected, why they easily sense the evil and the reason for the differences in its effect on human beings. In the end, I think it’s similarity to A Quiet Place made it fail.

So here’s my review for Game Of Thrones S8E1. First, they made the theme graphics better, a great start…but!

Reminisce of the small boy and the army marching into Winterfell, cool. The first sentence with Tyrion n the balless man, got me smiling n I was like, ‘yes, my Tyrion is very well alive.

Then, things started going fast, like so fast. They are probably trying to rush the serenre of the reunion so the main winter starts in the 2nd or 3rd episode, cuz even Bran said: “there’s no time for all these”.Arya and Jon, common…it should have been better. That reunion was so anticipated to just go off like that…duh I was codedly expecting fireworks or something

Why the heck do they have to rush the truth like that…it took us years to find out and they just poured it out like; just like that. Sam and Jon tried with the emotions sha, but seriously. As I said, there was no time for serenre, the real show has to start.

Daenerys of House Targaryen

I want to hug Dany and tell her she’ll be fine but then she’s acting all god mighty, I have 2 dragons, you have to like my bitchy attitude.
*Sansa chillax biko. Nobody is taking your place. The attitude with Tyrion wasn’t even necessary.

*Arya and Gendry got me all smiling from ear to ear. Don’t know why I didn’t even think of it b4 now.
*Bran cmon, get your shit together and stop acting so messed up…please have mercy on Jaime *crying*

Plenty more to say on each character…Cercei, I hail o!!!
Did I say what’s on your mind? Is this even how to write a review…smh

The final season of Game of Thrones starts where this whole madcap, fire-infatuated, snow-covered, incest-propaganda-film of a series originally began: at Winterfell, with a royal procession, and a small boy [ not Bran this time; lol ] climbing to take in the sights, his eyes large at the sight of thousands of Unsullied marching through the gates.

Of course, the main thrust of the episode, if you’ll pardon the expression, centres on the unbridled lust that links Jon and Daenerys, despite their similar DNA.

Unfortunately, the episode’s two greatest problems hover around the following. The first is that Bran practically gave himself a headache in season seven when he told Sam that Jon must know the truth about his parentage as soon as possible, but then lets enough time go by that Jon goes off on a dragon-riding adventure before egging Sam on to spill the beans. What were they waiting for? How did Sam move about Winterfell without Jon knowing he was there?

The other oddity is that Jon doesn’t immediately worry about the fact that he’s been committing incest. Yes, such behavior is tolerated slightly better in Westeros, and the news that his whole life is a lie does take top billing, but still. Who wouldn’t eventually clap a hand to his mouth and sputter something about how the two have been intimately acquainted in a very unfortunate way?

This is all I have for now; but let’s not forget the beautiful dragon ride [ Jon & Dan ] – best part of the premier to meeeeeeeeeee.

Someone you love so much, someone you cherish a lot..and you are very sure without them, you’d probably be dead. So you say you can’t live without them.

That someone will either walk away tomorrow…worse still, that someone will die someday in the morrow…and it will not kill you.

Emotion is a lie!

Emotion is man’s way of trying to escape the truth.

Which is;

We are capable of anything, good, evil, and whatever lies in between.

And accepting this is the first step to truly becoming!

Now about now, am dropping my opinion about the episode so far for Game of Thrones season eight.
▪Why would Cersei so believed in having elephants in a dragons fight???
Wouldn’t the dragons roast them alive for food??
Isn’t that foolish?
Or it one of the clever and smartest moves ever against the mother of dragons.
Like while her armies are being distracted by the dragons above them, and letting the opposition army attack them freely, she can also use the same tactics for her enemy too…
Distract the army with the presence of running elephants towards you creating a distraction for the opposition army, and giving her army free will to aim at the flying dragons with the giant crossbows…take out the dragons and the war is more human and in her favour!!!! By the way, Daenerys had no preparation for the elephants so I think Cersei was preparing properly ahead of time only to the disappointed there are no elephants.
▪Bran vs Jaime
Brain told Sam he is waiting for an old friend.. friend?
Now he sees Jaime as a friend, he is a new personality and I think doesn’t hold back to his old memories, oh! Fuck that, he isn’t a new personality, he is still Bran he is just doing what is best for the North. Who said he doesn’t still have Bran memory and the feelings?
He fucking supported and singlehandedly put it to Little finger’s how he betrayed his father Ned and all that… who said he doesn’t want payback?
Lol but I think Jaime has a role to play here and Bran would be friends with him….. heard there is a spoiler about how Daenerys will imprison Jaime and then probably Bran will save it., whatever though!

▪Sansa

Please give it up for this lady
Her transition is top-notch. From the foolish dumb girl to the smartest and one of the best playing of the game of thrones.
Sansa manages to make Jon look like a fool whenever he tries to say something to her or around her.
She is the wisest and most clever character for me in the show at the moment.
She already learnt from the masters, Little finger, Cersei and Tyrion.
Hope you all know Sansa now has her own army loyal to her?? The knights of Vale.
She is just like her mother giving advice to the Stark boys, but they are so arrogant and So blinded in the belief of doing what is best for the kingdom Lol
I pray Jon doesn’t die.

Why is the white king always up with that sign similar to the Targaryen sigil???

Is he a Targaryen or have a beef against them???
The night king is insane!
▪What would Tyrion do seeing the queen he got so much faith in would want to kill or punish his brother
▪Fucking the queen seems like a great award to Euron or probably a reassurance of the iron throne Lol
▪What would Cersei benefit from killing her brother Jaime?
▪I can’t wait for the mountain to take off his helmet. Lol
▪ Well, I see a big betrayal coming up…..
When Jon finally get the courage to man up for the crown…
Probably Tyrion and the Spider betraying her and then Jon betraying her love and try to take away what she holds so dear Lol
I see the problem with Jon turning on her as he has this high sense of doing what is right especially this recent attitude of her being like her father.
The dragon queen should be killed off
She is just like a father, burning anyone who isn’t with them…..
▪What is that Arya new anticipating weapon like ????
Episode 2 should better give me answers. Lol

Dear Mutterers, I fear that parents are the best pretenders you can ever come across, I really don’t know how they master this act but they sure excel well at it. 

My parents, for example, can be a handful to us their kids but it’s funny how the tables turn when our friends or the cousins come over for a vacation. 

I  begin to see a different side to my parents, which makes it the perfect time to take advantage you know lol!  I could ask them for anything at that time and viola! my wish is their command. How they wear fake smiles so comfortable mehn! It’s  genius. 

Times like this, my cousins or friends can press several buttons (mumu button) asking them for favours they normally wouldn’t say yes to us, their kids. But it sure works this time, funny enough I sometimes incite these acts.

“Your parents are actually cool you know?”…there goes my friend commending. It’s funny and yet not funny because if only they knew how much of a disciplinarian they are, they wouldn’t dare say. Maybe they should spend a month or more.

I hate to say this but because of the ‘put up appearance’ my parents do whenever there is a visitor, I can never visit someone’s home and feel all relaxed thinking their parents are actually nice. I always understand that my visit is one of those times they need to be at their best behaviour especially in theatrics. The mastery of these activities though can be scary, one can’t tell where the real love at *sighs*…

Maybe pretence is part of the package that comes with being a parent. They can’t help but show some love even if they have to fake it right? Parenting is definitely a tough skill.

First! Are you one of those with the ‘New year New me’ syndrome?’ or rather the ‘New year cut off syndrome’ … However, you must know that the above two are diseases that infect the lily-livered usually from mid-December till mid-January. It has no cure but instead goes on a recess only to resurface again at times like this.

So did you catch the disease? What are your coping mechanisms if you did? Lol

It’s not even supposed to be funny.

Did you know that men like you and I sat down to construct the Calendar? That we act like it’s some supernatural tool privileged to man is a pet peeve. At the approach of a new year, we start to act like men who were born blind and just received sight. We begin to make rules that the majority of us cannot live by.

The history of calendars can be traced to the bronze age. The Sumerian calendar was the first, followed by the Egyptian, Assyrian and Elamite calendars(please research history for yourself). The sole purpose of creating calendars was to keep track of days and larger divisions of time. That a man should change at the beginning of a new year was not in the blueprint, as a matter of fact, that’s a misconstrued way of living.

Resolutions are like manifestos. Both say a recap of what we would do in the new but some hiccups manifest beyond our control and majority falls off the wagon. Resolution is personal while a manifesto is Political. If you cannot live up to your resolution, never prosecute a politician for not living up to his/her Manifesto. There’s no double standard here. Change is a process, not an instance. That it is the beginning of a new year doesn’t mean we can change overnight or do genies(jinnis) appear at the cross over to blow us a new template? I really like to know.

If it takes you a new year to figure great things for yourself then I am not sorry for you. If it takes you a new year to cut the so-called ‘toxic friends’ from your life then you are not only a coward but an opportunist. Stop making calendars an escape route.  If I were your friend and you cut me off at the beginning of a new year, I wouldn’t even feel bad for me but for you because you couldn’t figure you out and the things you wanted without a calendar as your side piece…that’s so pathetic ex-friend!

Create your own time. Orchestrate your change anytime. Calendars are not your saving!

At the arrival of Daenerys to Winterfell, she notices a sense of distrust from the Northerners which was as a result of the Northern people not trusting people easily but Jon assured her she’s is safe.

Sansa also assures her that the North is hers but doesn’t show so much likeness for the Silver-haired Queen, which is because her Brother Jon forfeited his crown to fight for his people.

In this episode  of Game of Thrones, we also see that the Mother of Dragons goes to pay gratitude to Samuel Tally for the life of Jorah Momont and finds out she executed his Father and Brother, I can’t say Samuel’s reaction was what we expected but he was quite touched to hear the sad news of their death.

Theon Greyjoy rescues his Sister Yara in this episode and she heads back home incase the Mother of Dragons needs somewhere to retreat her army in case things go sideways as the dead can’t swim.

It’s in this episode that Samuel breaks the news of Jon’s history to him by telling him his birth parents and that he’s the one true King of the seven kingdoms, Jon doesn’t take it so well.

Just before the episode comes to an end, Jamie Lannister arrives, only to prove Sansa Stark right when she told Tyrion Lannister that he was not clever to take Cersei for her words.

With the above review, we look forward to episode two of the season.
