.:☪:. Apparently, G♥D had his own plan .:✝:.


TEXAS!!!, the city where everything is BIG, Including the heart of my now favorite graphic designer in the world, Osione Itegboje!!!...with generous time on my hand, and i mean GENEROUS, I decided to go visit a *ahem* darling family friend, Bisade Karunwi, all the way in texas - He actually told me about his friend Osione who was into all this artsy stuff that he showed and apparently had his resentments, RESENTMENTS?..I thought what a prick, I mean he was the only person who actually said he didn't like it, or it wasn't lovely, or at least the only person "man" enough to let me know.

...after a lovely meal at some random vietnamese restaurant {Bisade's food was goooood}, utterly relaxed, we sat down and somehow the magazine came into play {I don't know how this happens, EVERYTIME!...it just falls into play...it's taking over my life yo!....AHHH, who I'm kidding, heheh}, I showed him how far I had gone, and told him about my current state...then he goes I could do a way better job, and even for.....wait for it...FREE!...What did I have to lose?...I was forced on a break anyways, 3 months later and a week to deadline...Osione goes to Mexico!!...MEXICO....and gets freaking stuck for about a wk...I was furious!!!!!!!!, coz i had just bought a ticket to go meet him in texas to review the end product, and I lost it coz of his naughtiness, I. E it was not refundable :@...So, it was on with me and Osione....and yeah we, HE decided he did not want to work with me anymore :(, LoL {It's funny now, it wasn't then!! *SIGH*}

...while Osione was on his "vacation" I came across *ahem* was introduced to this beautiful lady with some major brains {I totally adore this side of her...Don'tTellHer. She slaps reality in my face, when I begin to imagine THE IMAGINABLE!!!}....Uche Eze {Who is going to kill me, and prolly resign for putting her picture on the internet *cringes*} - who i swear reminds me of myself, LoL...She's soo sweet and positive and best of all loves fashion and totally gets what HauTe is about and she also has the maddest connections!....So, Immediately I asked her to be the Editor - at - large, and she said yes!!!, then as her input and our relationship got stronger, I asked if she could be Assistant editor, and she said "i'm fine with anything"...and it's been a happy marriage ever since {untill prolly after she sees this picture}.

With all this sunshine, I was beginning to miss the "rain"...still in denial that Osione had stopped working with me, I kept sending him new materials with no replies, assuming he was working on everything, since he was now back from mey-he-co {Mexico} and we, well I added some extra weeks to the deadline after my "TANtrum"...until one darling summer morning. I got an email from Osione with so many BIG english words, {basically telling me I must not have understood when he said he quit! *rolls eyes*} I thought!!...WTHH...I decided to take a breather. then that same night I GOT THIS PHONECALL from this Lady {Hmmmm, was I expecting the rain, and BOY DID I GET IT!!!}

Don't worry people, I did not fight with the whole world, eventhough it seems like it. Really only 5, ppl...but I learned lessons from 3...I've discussed 2 now, LoL...1 more, and it gets better!!....

I guess to truly get somewhere, you have to go through a lot of experiences, and this unfortunately and fortunately means meeting all kinds of characters, that can either break you or make you :D

LoL @ Bitchy, I think working with control freaks, make it quite easy for me. As far as deadlines are met, and there's good communication!!....LoL, It's the lack of that, that's what causes stress!!!
