It's May!!! (Plus I'm Still Stuck In My Bubble).



I woke up smiling like I won a lottery in my sleep. My heart is so light and it almost feels like walking on cloud 9. After I spent sometime going through comments I remembered something and sobered up a little:

So last week *Dee asked if I would like to go for a party on a private beach (Ibeshe) today. I said yes but I knew I wouldn't. The first thought I had was the people, then the celebs that will be there knowing Dee's affiliation with most of them, then the possibility that it might be "all white everything" as per boat cruise and private beach things, then people running around in bikinis and shorts. Blame it on old age but even as I said yes, I knew that if asked I would lie that I have to work today. 

Yesterday however I read a couple of articles on Thought Catalogue (we have a love-hate relationships. Some of the articles make me want to burst open a vein but I can't stop reading Thought Catalogue) and one was about how Introverts are losing out of a lot of things in life just because of their introversion and how they need to stop using introversion as an excuse to stay in their comfort zone. 

This rang so true to me. I know that my refusal to put myself out there more may have cost me more than I care to think. I've lost opportunities to meet new people, make new friends, do some networking, create business opportunities and more just because I'm more comfortable hiding out in my room. I used to go out a lot before even when I didn't feel like but these days I just play the introvert card and stay hidden behind closed doors and watch the world through the screen of my ipad. 

I decided that has got to change. Immediately I pinged Dee and said Aye! Add my name to the Guest List! I was filled with enthusiasm and zest and excitement. I called my friend *Summy to ask if she'll come through and she said yes but had her concerns; celebs, groupies, "small shidren", " Nwando what will we wear? babes I'm too grown to be going half naked and showing all my stretch marks" LOL. I told her we'd be casual and just go and have fun. 

But now I woke up late and I completely forgot, it was when I was lazily going through comments that I thought; Wait, I should be on a boat by now! I placed a call and people are already there, ready to get on the boat. So, yes, errr, I'm sha not going to the parry. 

Fall back plan; Movie date. (Boring life I live, I know but.... To be honest, I'm not ready to break out of this comfort zone, at least not today. I don't think Summy was too keen either because she hasn't even called me to ask what's up). 

Yeah, it could also be because last night I found out my brother is attending that same party too. Nah! The thought of me flirting with some hot shirtless dude while my brother is a foot away is simply a turn off. So im'ma sit my ass down at home! (Yeah, this is another excuse to stay in my bubble). 

So once again, happy new month guys. 
From the depths of my heart I pray that the hopes you had in April which didn't become a reality will manifest in May, and that this month be filled with love, laughter, peace and fulfillment. 
May God bless us all. Amen.

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…

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!
