Life Of Harriet 2. (The Fault In Our Stars)- By Amy4Me





A few days ago,i read this book 'The fault in our stars' by John Greene and it struck a chord in me. In one of the scenes,the heroine tried to get her sick boyfriend to come to terms with his life. He was never going to be an NBA pro basketball player nor was he going to ever get the chance to be a real life hero because his whole body was riddled with cancer. I am happy that by the end of the book,he got to understand that. Whatever the fault in your star may be,it is still your star and you have to live with it. Although that a long time ago i accepted my star,i still find myself bemoaning my life and asking myself why am living this sort of life. I help myself by slipping into a world of my own in my mind always. But it is rather funny at times because my mind still forces me to have bad experiences in that alter life,worse experiences than I have in real life at times. It makes me wonder if am the one inviting all my troubles with my thoughts.


This is why i have decided to write an autobiography of my life up to this age because i really dont know what life has in store for me. I may die tomorrow or i may not and this would be a bedtime story for my children but whatever happens, i just have to pen down my side of the story.

Like i wrote earlier,am Harriet Walters a black Nigerian female who is currently age twenty and one. I may ask myself why i was born as Harriet but i never ask myself why i was born Nigerian like some people i know do. I love being Nigerian. I love my birth town of Umuahia,the capital city of Abia state. Just like most Nigerians hate Nigeria,most people hate Umuahia too. They complain of its quietness and dullness, but that is what i love most about it. Nothing ever happens here except the high handedness of the governors. The only thing i dont really like is that its so small that we are all connected in a way. You cant go anywhere without running into someone you know. Least of all,ever noticeable me.

 I have been both fortunate and unfortunate to have been blessed with a unique baby face on a very rubenesque body and to top it all,a rather undisguiseable baby voice that everyone loves. It can be very tiny and it can be piercingly loud. Even online,i cannot be hidden. I remember the time i conducted a little experiment on the popular 2go chat app. Back then,the lesbians just would not let us be in the chat rooms. I began to wonder what it felt like to be a lesbian. So i added one up and pretended to be a lesbian.

Girl asked for my vagina picture! Having seen a few in the phones of boys,i knew African vaginas were not pretty so hell would have frozen before i would have snapped mine to see if they were that ugly. Unfortunately for me,knocking on her door was an old 2go friend of mine who happened to be her neighbour. When she left the room to get him what he wanted,he took a peek at her chat and saw my username and my claims of being a lesbian. He didnt stick around though to see that i apologised and said i could not snap a picture of my vagina. There is a reason why even bikinis cover there! Back to his house,boy came online immediately and started to tease me. Apparently he gad not gottten lesbo vibes from me. I told him the truth and we had a good laugh. That was not the first time nor was it the last time,a secret action of mine turned out to be not a secret. 

The perfect example should be why my mother is torn between love and hatred for me, her second child and second daughter. They say second daughters are always troublesome but in my case,i am trouble itself.

    Like I said earlier, Harriet needs to step out of this maze, letting people's opinion of her get to her and self-«Dunno what to call it»...condemnation, maybe?

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!
