Aaaaaarghhh! Permission To Rant.

And this right here is my first rant. MTN, Etisalat, Glo... You guys can like to chill with those useless texts. USELESS. It's frustrating, annoying and takes up all the text space in my tiny dual sim Nokia phone. I use this little Nokia that has space for 20 texts at a time and yes, it's dual sim (shouldn't I be ashamed to admit this? *Shrugs*), so you can imagine what it's like when MTN and Etisalat send me texts every 5 minutes and then my phone constantly asks me to delete texts so that the phone can accommodate even more useless texts from these Networks. Soooo so annoying! 

Rant #2. PH traffic. Aarrrghhhhhhhhh! It's even worse than Lagos. #imaginethat

Rant #3. There is NO power supply anywhere. When is this going to end? Is this ever going to end? How much longer will I have to live this way?

Rant #4. Dollar is being sold at N190. This isn't right, this isn't fair!

Rant #5. I seem to be catching feelings. No Lord, not me, not I. I'm numb, remember? Feelings....? Eeeeew. 

And I refuse to rant alone. I invite you to join this rant fest. What's been bothering you lately? Who's been pissing you off lately? Do share, let it all out.

    Self-centered politics.
    Lagos noise (especially from these generators lacking mufflers).
    Nepa/phcn/ikeja distribution or whatever the heck you decide to call yourself, keep it up, ok?
    These developed countries should come and see the heat they have caused.
    Lastly, I now have 1-pack. Blame it on Ikot-Abasi akpu and fisherman soup.

    Howeverrrrrrrrr, isn't GOD just Great??? :D

    1. I'm literally LOLing right here to Fisherman soup, so u do finish dat soup? You are strong!
      Your One-pack(or mungo pack) is just evidence of serious good-living hehehe.

    Done ranting

  12. Airtel constanly sending me text messages its annonying...
    Am soo sleepy and still at work ..
    This dollar thing is not funny anymore I was just talking abt it with someone like a minute ago ....
    I need new girlfriends for the new year ..
    can Nigeria stop being a shitty country pls

    1. new girlfriend loading..... lol!

  13. N yes I wantd going to church this evening but now I cnt cos am still at work and b4 I get home it will b over ...thanks T I needed to rant n I didn't even know

  14. My brother. I refuse to be his safety net. He's 33, has never worked, was kicked out of school. He just sponges off us. To the Poster who wrote a few weeks back, complaining of her begi begi brother. Cut him off. Stop helping him. You're only fueling his indolence. My brother is the same. And I see him marrying a woman for her money. He's too lazy and laid back to afford the lifestyle he wants. Every time I see him, my heart boils. And to believe some women are married to men like him. He even refuses to clean up for himself. He believes everything we do for him is his right. He doesn't know it's a privilege. What I'd love to do is change the locks. Pack his stuff into bin bags and leave them by the door. He'll just return home and find out he can't get in and his clothes are outside. Let him go live with his friends and see if they'll tolerate him. Idiot.

  15. PS, for those annoying texts and calls, bar them. If you have a smartphone, download a number blocking app. If you have a Samsung phone, add the annoying numbers to the block call list. That's what I did. I don't know why NCC can't save us from this nuisance.

  16. Dont even know where to start the rant from, all I know is next year is my year. ELEVATION front back right center!

  17. 1. The traffic oh no the traffic. Nothing can be worse than Lagos traffic, if you like, get a house right next to your office, you will still encounter traffic! Have you ever been in traffic yeh and you can see the building you want to go to but it would actually take you another TWO WHOLE friggin hours to get there? Lagos traffic is evil cuz its too many cars on very few roads. How can one family wake up in the morning and 5 different cars leave the house that morning; mummy will take one car to work, daddy another car, big brother another car, big sister another car and then the kids in their own car to school, imagine if every family in Lagos does that? How now? And all of you will now hit 3rd mainland bridge. Tufiakwa!

    2. Also please what tha heck is PHCN on about? Or is it still NEPA? Who cares. Point is why would they take light on and off like 15-20 times (I am not even exaggerating) within one hour? You put on the a.c thinking it will cool but there isn’t even enough time for the friggin a.c to cool your small room cuz bloody PHCN keep taking the light. Is light really that hard to come by? Its just friggin electricity for crying out loud. But there is always light in Ghana….Tufiakwa!

    3. Yes and the WORST of them all, you wont eat for two days yeh and then you go to work, the moment you take a sip of maltina or even bite out of a tiny piece of bread, one random clueless colleague will be asking you stuff like “FNLP should you really be eating bread?”, “FNLP is that juice freshly squeezed or with added sugar?” and no one would even understand if you say its your first meal in 2days. People think you can just press a stupid button to lose weight, its annoying, I cant stand people sometimes, people aren’t cool. They have no chill!

    4. My boss will be sending me emails at 2.30am saying “FNLP why are my mails going unanswered, why are you ignoring my mails?”. How am I supposed to even mail her back that its 2.30am, shouldn’t she know its 2.30am? This one is actually beyond me.

    ***the end

    1. Wow some mins after i posted this, got a text from MTN N saying;
      "Make a resolution to Reduce Weight! Our daily tips will help; text LWT to 35075 NOW to subscribe @N100/30days. To unsubscribe send XLWT to 35075."

      Imagine this nonsense?

    2. Calm down Honey!!!
      Oh dear! Just breath babe, breath.
      Lmfao... Your rant, WOW! For some minutes I thought you were my sister (Nneka). LOL
      I feel your pain but especially the weight thingy but wetin man pikin go do?!

    3. this is my favorite rant right here, thats how to rant, people. You gotta put some words in block letters every NOW and THEN and it has to be a long ass speech conveying your anger. Kanye sef go fear this rant.

  18. I'm pissed. I just found out I won't be paid 13th month and profitability bonus because I joined in August. They won't even prorate the dang thing yet they prorated the rice and veg oil. Others got a bag and half plus three jars of veg oil, I got one of each. If they can prorate that because I joined mid year, why not the 13th month too?! I dey vex gaaaan. Then I borrowed a supposedly good friend some money and he hasn't returned it. Different story each day...I'm just mega livid right now.

  19. MTN and Co, God will judge them. Clare

  20. MTN and Co, God will judge them. Clare

  21. MTN and Co, God will judge them. Clare

  22. Okay lemon rant

    1. You can imagine working for a whole year and the Xmas bonus is nothing to write hone about.
    2. NEPA/phcn/ or whatever dey call demselves, can you just try behave for once? Its so annoying. You see me carrying phone charger everywhere because of dem.

    3. Upon all the food, blood tonic, multivitamin, supplements that I'm taking, my body no gree add weight. Been trying to put on at least few kg bcs I'm too slim yet no show. I need small fat. Just small.

    All in all God has been faithful to me even in my unfaithfulness. Lord I'm grateful.

    1. Start working out,the weight wld appear. Trust me...

  23. 1.The stress when I'm coming back from work.commuting under d hot sun is nufn to smile m gettn dark:(
    2.Benin is just too hot a place.even with d rain dt fell ds evenin,heat evrywhr.cnt slp
    3.Guy dt m catchn feelnz for,mkn me super angry.wish I can do smfn to tweak him a some emotion gadammit!

  24. Any ideas to make him show sm emotion?:(

  25. Perfect opportunity.

    1. Lagos traffic is TERRIBLE! I spent 4 hours on the road last night, got home at 11pm and I had to be up at 4:30 am today. Lagos is such a horrible place to live in.
    1b. These mumu APC people are going to clog the roads again today. .. **wailing**

    2. Mr. AAAde please leave me alone! You're a MARRIED MAN for pete's sake! Stop calling me "sweetheart" or "honey" and stop coming to my workstation every other hour!

    3. NEPA/PHCN/EKEDC why can't we have light at night? To bring it during the day too is problem! I'm just tired of your ineptitude

    4. Then the BF. I'm honestly tired of the back and forth. This kind of bs takes its toll on the mind eventually. I don't want to go around hating on every man I meet and I'm almost at that point already. I don't even know why I'm letting you do this to me... mstcheeeeew!

    5. ... I think I'm done.
    Thanks for listening.. #DropsMic

  26. *Sitting quieting and thinking* I just want a fun filled Christmas. And I need friends.

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?

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…
