Hell Yeah It's Friday. RANT OR RAVE People!




Wow! I welcome Friday with open arms. 

I honestly wasn't too in love with this week so I'm going to rant and rave!
Here goes:

-The week started, and stuff in an area of my life I really don't like to blog about lead to the age old question; why do women hate each other? Aaaaargh! 


-While we're trying to recover from our missing girls 8 more are abducted; classic case of taking the piss. I'm ranting about this because, naturally it's saddening, but because on that day the news completely messed with my writing/blogging. I was writing a short story when I heard the news and suddenly my mind went blank. (That was the day i did the BLANK post, I think). It's like, what are you even writing? What's the point? Does this matter? On that day I struggled to post anything at all and I'm still in a zone. 

-*Dean began to profess love, wants a relationship, wants commitment. Dean is such an amazing guy. Problem is, Dean showed me pepper. Dean was the last person I dated and things were so uncool that I bade him farewell and set off on my journey of abstinence and solitude. So I heard the words he said, received the attention he gave me, saw his funny poetry on his PM (this flattered me because Dean's status hasn't changed in over a year, you know how guys can be, so this was what made me blush.) 

Hahaha. This cracks me up, I had to munch it. No one told me Shakespeare had resurrected. 

I like Dean but I remember one quote about leaving the phone to ring when the past calls...

- I went to work out this evening and I jogged past the basket ball court. Jisox! Lekwa umu nwoke. See men! Foooooine sweaty shirtless men with well-sculpted abs glistening with sweat, it's a miracle I didn't fall down. The second time I jogged past one came over to talk. Yippee! But guess what, all he said was "you're not a resident" in an accusatory tone. I just rolled my eyes and kept jogging. *tongue out*. I really love working out there, I pray no committee is set up because 'outsiders' are coming to work out inside their precious estate. 

-Most of the people who promised to help the single mum haven't kept their promises *Sad Face*. But one very awesome guy from this blog has helped out immensely. We are now good friends and speak everyday. It won't be more than friendship between us but I'm glad I met him. It feels good to have a confidant. 

-NEPA. PHCN. Eko Electric (or whatever) WHERE IS THE LIGHT??? 

-As I drove back home from the estate I'm trespassing someone flagged me down and I stopped to give him a ride, this was around 10pm. It was a risky thing to do but I felt sorry for him. I tried to make conversation but he wasn't keen on it so we rode in complete silence, I was so scared that he will pull out a gun and ask me to pull over at any minute (You guys won't believe what calmed me down; his cologne. I just kept thinking an armed robber won't used this kind of cologne. The potentially dangerous hitchhiker smelled good. LOL)Thankfully he didn't and when we got to his stop he said "lock your doors, this place isn't safe". I just smiled and let out a sigh of relief. 

- I have a job on Saturday which I was paid for a while back. When you have work and you anticipate payment you're gingered to work. But when you've already been payed long ago and you've chopped the money and cleaned mouth you sort of lack motivation. But it's all good, I know I'll do an awesome job anyways (by God's grace.). 

Generally this week was very flat, I hope the next one's much better. 

How was your week? What were the the highlights and low points of your week? What made you happy, laugh, giggle or squeal with joy and what made you scream, shout, cry or nearly murderous?!
Well guess what, this is where you get to rant or rave. Spill it!

  3. Travelled to PH for the first time. It was supposed to be rest but turned out that I have to be in an office everyday. Still fun though I haven't seen PHCN light in 8days and haven't seen my children since. Less stress, unfamiliar territories. Kareoke bars, internet and hubby's presence made it worthwhile. Oh I forgot to include the first lady's video on Chibok..... Saying a prayer for the girls.....#Enjay#

  4. Nothing to rant on really, except the controversies surrounding our missing girls. Really sad. That aside, it's been an eventful (and stressful) week so far. :D

  5. The week has been good can't complain.Highlight of the week, speaking to my nephews over the phone, my friend got engaged, plus it finally rained after a looong dry spell so I thank God for that.Praying for the missing girls in Nigeria, the single mum and for peace and stability all over Africa.
    I promised to help the single mum but I am not currently able to do that, but I will do so as soon as things get better for me. God bless you Thelma.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

One More Post...

Shhhhhhh....

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!
