Rest In Peace, Robbin Williams. ("Apparent Suicide" Cited As Cause OfDeath)

This is so heartbreaking. Was it not just three days ago that I told blog reader Sasha Bone that I feel most (American) comedians are the unhappiest or most depressed of the lot? Who would have thought that beneath his twinkly eyes, gentle and kind smiley face and beautiful humour this man whom we all grew up watching, was suffering from severe depression? So sad.

According to Bella Naija
Superstar comedian Robin Williams has passed away at 63.
The following statement was released by his publicists - “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
The late comedian’s wife Susan Schneider confirmed his death – “This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken.”
The family also called for fans to focus on the comedian’s life – “On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
The actor who won an Oscar for his role in “Good Will Hunting” has started in various blockbuster movies. An “apparent suicide” is being cited as his cause of death.
Rest in Peace.

Depression is a real disease. If you are depressed and/or having suicidal thoughts, please seek help immediately. You are not alone and it can be overcome.


  1. Rest in peace sir. T it's like Sasha bone is your new bestie. Hmmm

    1. Somehow I detect slight envy in this ya comment... like U'd rather b her new bestie? Hmmm. T of Life! Ur BVs r loving up o

    2. It's just an observation. But I won't mind being friends with Thelma and I'm not ashamed to say it.

    3. so that's the issue now ? being friends ? are you 12 yrs old ? don't be a beg friend.

      It's funny how people are being remembered so much after they die..hmmm may his soul rest in peace mehn.

  2. First time I saw this man was on "The Crazy Ones" he was very comical and never acted his age. An old man with young blood. RIP Robert

  3. This news put a temporary stop on all my actvities last night, pretty selfish of me to think that I wont see any new work from him anymore! Also angry at the same time as to why he would deny us of himself. He was one of the funniest dude that ever lived, that Mrs doubtfire was seriously hilarious.
    Depression! Sad but a serious problem of this century, technologies are not helping matters too. We all hide behind smartphones and tablets as if they can be the same with people. Africa is fast catching up, losing all our communal kind of lifestyle that kept people sane to a larg extent.
    May God help us.

  4. RIP sir.
    One of my fav comedians.
    It's so sad.

  5. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn I watched a few weeks back, his last film I suppose, was amazingly great. Didn't think he was daat depressed, wow! Ironically, d story is jst d opposite. Lived Angry, Died Happy.....Anonymous T.

  6. Who would have thought the one that made people laugh will find nothing to make him laugh and forego the idea of suicide?.... Depression is real and we cloak it here (Nigeria) like its a taboo if admitted of its existence.

  7. And as a friend said; THE ONLY PERSON WHO DIDN'T HAVE ROBBIN WILLIAMS TO MAKE HIM HAPPY AND MAKE HIM SMILE WAS ROBBIN WILLIAMS. Sleep in Peace. (Spent the day binge-watching Mrs Doubtfire, Alladin, JUMANJI and even Flubber! Sad to know such talent is gone)

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.

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…
