My Ode to MIA

This is it, the end of the MIA road.

I thought I would be okay & able to handle the end of MIA, but I can’t.

These past 2 years have been both crazy and amazing & I’ll never forget them.

Coming straight outta Compton…(not really) I was scared half to death about going straight to college.

Being a high school kid who only really knew singing and what was taught in school,looking at the SSL for the first time scared me shitless..and seeing what the 2nd years had to do later on (APP)… no thank you. Intimidation was definitely the word.

I had many doubts and didn’t know if I could handle it or succeed… but I did and I’m glad I stuck around.

I have so many people to thank for helping me through everything and being nothing short of the best (students and teachers).  1st year Lab A & 2nd year Lab F - you guys are all fucking awesome; Thank you for such a fun time full of weird&great memories!

To the profs, thank you for everything; your support, your guidance, your criticisms, your jokes, your knowledge…everything. MIA is one of a kind.

I’m privileged to have witnessed so many people grow and kick ass in what feels like such a short time. And the talent of everyone is simply amazing. Words don’t even begin to express how lucky I am to have met and worked with such awesome people!

I can’t wait to see what everyone does, whether you stay in the industry or not… follow your heart.

Honestly, no words can express how I feel right now.  Bittersweet maybe? I don’t know.

But what I do know is that I’m grateful to have been part of such an amazing program and my life has been forever changed.

I definitely don’t listen to music the same anymore, haha.

Good luck to all of you and continue to be great!
And thank you again to everyone!

It’s been real.

Cheers!

Day 05 - My definition of love

To be honest, I don’t know how I’d define love.   Everyone has their own definition and experience with love, and when you’ve experienced it, it’s kind of hard to put into words even more.

If I had to define it, I’d say:

Love isn’t just something you feel, it’s something you see and hear as well.  Love is something you are passionate about whether it’s a person, place, thing, hobby, etc.

One of my profs last year said “When you’re miserable and extremely happy at the same time, that’s when you know you’re truly in love. “
Fortunately and unfortunately,  I experienced that and I think it’s true.   No love is gonna be cookie cutter perfect, but it can be your perfect.

Love is in all of us and in everything.
It’s simply a beautiful thing.

Day 03 - My parents

So I’m doing this one pretty late because I really couldn’t be bothered to do it earlier :P

This one is just gonna be short and sweet since the others were novels, haha.

My mum is the best. My rock. My fanclub lol. My role model.
Even though I get mad at her, I couldn’t ask for anyone else to by my mum. I love her to infinity.

My dad is…well… not really in my life.
He caused a lot of problems in my family when I was growing up and still kinda does so he’s not really in the picture.
It’s a very complicated story that only few know the most about.
I will say he is still my dad, and I love him.

See, short and sweet.. kinda :P
I’m signing off now.

Day 01 - Introduce yourself

Sup bru.

My name is Ebehi.
I dunno if that’s enough of an introduction so maybe I’ll ramble a bit.

People that know me well enough would probably say that I’m a music and sports junkie.

I’m that girly girl who loves sports that, stereotypically, guys mostly watch. I don’t really care though.  I love my sports.

Music. That’s been a part of my life since day one. I’ve been singing since I was 5 and haven’t stopped. I was also a dancer…yes believe it or not, I was a dancer.

I’m very soft-spoken and will often keep to myself, but when I’m with my friends…you cannot shut me up.

I don’t wanna toot my own horn but I think I’m pretty damn smart ;)
I will be honest, sometimes I say things that make me sound stupid on purpose because I don’t like having to always be the intellectual people expect me to be.
And also it gets people to laugh and I love when people are happy and laughing.

I like to consider myself a British-Canadian so if you hear me with an accent one day or something and not the next…don’t be surprised lol

I said I’d ramble and I did.
I don’t wanna give my whole life story.
You ever wanna know more about me…ask.
I don’t bite ; P

Day 02 - My first love

My first love huh?

If you’re talking about a passion, that’d be music and singing. Like I said before, been part of my life since I was 5.

If you’re talking about a person, let’s call him “The Rock” (it’s his fav wrestler).  And he knows already and so do my best friends.

The story:
I met him when I was in grade 10, and pretty much fell for him when we started talking.  And then I found out he was in a relationship and kinda tried to put my feelings on the back burner.  He became one of my best friends and I was there for him as much as I could be whenever he needed someone.
As hard as I tried to not crush on him, I still did. (My friends can attest to that).  He was sweet, funny, sarcastic, athletic, handsome as hell, liked the same things I did.  There’s more to that list, but I don’t need you falling for him too ;) lmao  He was just plain amazing to me.
Anyways, fast forward and there were a lot of ups and downs.  Kinda like a bad roller coaster (or just a normal roller coaster in my case since I don’t like them lol).  Things got tough for me just kinda sitting on the sidelines and then having these kinda flirty moments.
I really don’t wanna get into big details so from this, I’ll just speed to this past year.
I found out he has been in love with me, and honestly… I had no clue.  He’s not the best at showing emotions (he admits it).  So I flabbergasted and also extremely happy when he told me.  It’s like that person you’ve been wanting finally wants you.. and has been wanting you too, but wouldn’t say anything.  Not gonna lie, it was both amazing and frustrating.  The way he told me was the most beautiful thing I had ever heard.
Anywhozers, things were good for a bit and then we started getting in these fights and stuff went to shit really fast and horribly.  No one has ever made me feel in love with them and made me cry so much at the same time.  I know you’re thinking well that’s not good.  But it’s complicated - and that’s not a cop-out.
And still is.
This may sound silly, but we never dated, and I dunno if we ever will.
I dunno if we’ll ever go back to “normal” whatever our normal is.
Things got SOOO messed up, I feel like I’m in limbo.

We haven’t spoken in a while so, yeah.
That’s the long, yet short (surprisingly, yes that is a short version) of my first love.

If you were to ask me if I miss him, I’d be lying if I said no.
He’s made a pretty big impact on my life - good and bad.

This wasn’t easy for me to do…at all.
Holy balls.

Well that’s it I guess.
