Happy 1st Birthday To Us

Thanks guys for all the comments, calls, mails and love. I didn't even get this much love on my last birthday. LOL. 

So I can't let this first anniversary pass by without saying anything but I'll keep it as brief as possible. I know I've said thanks last night and I know I might sound like a broken record but I need to thank some people particularly, those readers that have shown me support from day 1 (Mariam, Tokoni, Steele etc), that urged me to keep moving on those days I felt disillusioned (Sasha Bone, FNLP, Memphis, Wale etc), the ones who have shown me strong support by their comments, mails and the love the show in ways they don't even know (Ruthylicious, Enjay, Diary of Dido, Tiwa, cccc, Blink, That naughty housewife, Clare, Chimezie Nwodo, Phransea, F, Mabel Opara, Uyi, Sharon Achieng, Subomi, Favourite, Ifunanya Ekene, Easah, Tolulope Alabi, Miss Pynk etc) the ones I've become friends and formed a bond with (Sasha Bone, ImperfectHer, FNLPetc), those who have prayed for, prayed with and counseled me (HSF, Dr N, Wale, Memphis etc) and in addition to thanking all these people I cannot forget Kabuoy, Lara Toyin, Shy girl, Ziggylucious, Uju Beibe, Queen Spicey, La Effizy, Talikhi Bekhas, Anonymous Rider, PunIntended, Thelma Gh, Rukqayah, Kene, Rubynnia, Ruby Diamond, Eni-wealth, Eazee E, Ada-Ugo, Nwanne somebody, Bloggitup, memebaby, Fina, Eziuche C, Jay Stan, Queen, Steffi Laba, Buby, Dominique Damsel, Sissi, Adeola Momoh, Ginika, Chocolate and everyone else, not at all forgetting all the great Anonymouses, the silent readers and the runaway readers, particularly my darling Ifesinachi Okonkwo

Thanks to bloggers who were there long before me and willingly helped me navigate through the sometimes muddy waters, most especially Myne Whitman. God bless you lady!

Thank you all a great deal, don't worry I know I haven't won an Oscar and this speech get as e be but that's only because I'm immensely grateful. 

So I thank you all but I'm going to go all Oliver Twist on you and ask those of you with social media accounts to please share any posts that you liked or enjoyed on your social media pages. Also remember that you can always contribute to the blog with your stories, articles, ideas and opinion pieces. 

Some of you are still asking about the blog party, you obviously haven't noticed that I'm no party planner. Haha! So I'm thinking we might all just meet up somewhere in December or something, unless some of you want to form a planning committee. If you do mail me and we'll discuss.

    Though it seems like I was never here. Forgotten so easily?

    1. Aaaaargh! I typed the post, published it and went out. As I entered the car the first thought; Enjay! I didn't write Enjay's name. I began to panic but I was like Enjay hasn't been coming to the blog so she won't see it, I'll edit once I get home. Well now I'm home and I've already been caught. Enjay you haven't been forgotten by me, not in the least. Everyday I wonder if you've 'absconded' but I'm aware that you have things occupying your mind at the moment so I decided not to bother you for now.
      And although I've been caught I'm still going to edit it. E ma binu ore mi, jorrrrrr!!! Lol

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?

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…

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!
