Do Something!

Some weeks ago, in the midst of mild depression, confusion and emptiness, one thought crossed my mind. It was a strange thought considering I'd never thought of this before. In the innermost recess of my mind I heard a tiny voice say "I have everything I need". And then it occurred to me. I have everything I need to be happy, to be successful, to be content, to be satisfied. I have EVERYTHING. God has equipped me with all that I need to make it, it may not be much but it's surely enough. 

There's so much I have to say but I'll keep it brief, I don't want to waste my time writing epistles that no one has the time or patience to read (myself included). Some of us have made mistakes in the past. Do not let them define you. That you're still here today in spite of those mistakes is surely for a reason. (And I don't say this lightly, I'm advising myself here too). 

There are so many of us getting to an age we once considered very old yet we still don't know what 
we want to be "when we grow up". But you know what, it's ok. As long as you've not given up, as 
long as you've not abandoned the pursuit, then you're on track, it may not be the right track but it will 
surely lead to the right track. 

One thing I must say is this DO SOMETHING. Find something and do it. Someone who got irritated seeing me glued to my ipad every night, furiously typing away once asked "this blog thing, are you getting paid for it, what's the point? Why are you spending so much money on data and all your time writing and researching?". She and most others don't understand that while I love to see an increase in page views and comments in the comments section, I mainly do this for me. Yes me. It has become my therapy. My outlet. My nicotine. My lover. My bestie. It's always on my mind and has given me new purpose. I don't know where it will lead me but knowing that I'm on a journey to somewhere is good enough for now. 
        So I would advise that rather than spend time thinking about just how miserable, lonely and unfair life is, spend that time doing something worthwhile that makes you happy. Whether it makes you money or not. The satisfaction you'll get is far more valuable than money. BUT if it makes you money as well, then my darling that's just freaking fantastic!!! 

And while we're on the matter can I say thank you to everyone who comes to this blog. Sometimes I wonder why you do. LOL. But thanks all the same. And to everyone who has at one point or the other mailed me to encourage me, to tell me I'm doing good or just to say hi, May God almighty in his infinite goodness continue to bestow goodness upon you. Azzzzzn you have no idea how far those few words go. Thank You!!! 

Ok... I feel like I've not said exactly what I set out to say in this post but sleep is setting in so before I start chatting out of context I'll stop here. 

Kachifo nu.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
