♪ Suddenly I see ♪

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world...


KT Tunstall couldn't have explained how I felt any better. Osione had just sent me the 1st draft of the magazine *sigh* It was perfect! waaay beyond my expectation. I was quite amazed because he didn't even ask me any questions or request my presence, yet he had given me what I wanted and I had no clue!!...It felt so great! I felt like I could conquer {walk} the world now!! My imagination/dream, a year later {YES, a WHOLE year!!} had now come to past. Definately a turned new leaf.
Check out the video below {I love it!}


As a well cultured girl, of course I got to my knees and thanked God for EVERYTHING {still do}.The fights, the sickness, the PATIENCE, the disappointments, the doubts, my doubters, my FRIENDS {Gosh - who you would meet soon, YaY!}, my believers and supporters who have all been a major part in how I live my life today - to just be a good ambassador of the human species, and allow God to use me through my desires {LoL, I've gone preacher on you}.

It's just been a lovely journey ever since, the wonderful HUMBLE {omg} people I've come across that just make me look at life in a whole different way. Now, I, Dammie Amolegbe the EDITOR {editrix - lol} welcome you into the next chapter of this life, my influences and inspirations...

Dammie said...

LoL, of course I have to approve!! and don't mind that one he is a gay.

SET said...

Hi Dammie. A true and amazing comment from Oprah.Thx

Dammie said...

Hey SET,

Your welcome. I love that quote SO MUCH. As simple as it is, it says a WHOLE lot.

Nkem said...

You haven't told us about the bit where you get Wilhelmina Slater to be your creative editor...

Dammie,

I like where this blog is going. Let's all take a moment to thank God for technology and its publishing abilities. As in GQ, only I'm not being sarcastic or attempting to be witty, here are some suggestions for future posts:

1. Now that you've praised some people and called out others, I think its time you show us diff sides of your life. I want to read more about u. Your loves, tastes, and may be sex (it sells--every time).

2. I think whoever Osione is, you should feature him more.

3. This is the last I promise. Put up a video of Anna Wintour doing the robot in the nude, with a pic of ur face pasted over hers. She'll be thrilled.

PS: Don't worry about pulling off the video stunt. I've got the Photoshop/AfterEffects hook up.

*sigh* U don lost finish!!...

Oh that's such a beauutiffful song. Anytime I hear it at the beginning of Devil Wears Prada, it just makes me SO happy!!!

Now is it the magazine that has made you stop blogging? It circulates in Lagos, right - so that means you're in Nigeria now?

Cheers.

Dammie said...

Yah, I love it tooo!!

The magazine does have a bit to do with it, currently in the last wk of production!! It should start circulating officially in Lagos this summer, I'll be sure to let y'all know!!
