Warning! Please Leave Me Out Of It.

Good morning good people. I hope we all slept well?

I need to say this real quick. I've received a number of complaints from some of my blog readers that some people from this blog reach out to them and ask for money or favours and reference me or my blog. 

Please if you want to go about begging people for money, kindly leave me out of it. If someone reaches out to you, most likely through your blogger ID and asks for financial assistance and says that I advised them to reach you (that has happened a couple of times; "Thelma said I should talk to you"), or mention that they know you from TTB and are also part of the family, please ignore them. I have never and most likely will never send someone to ask anyone on my blog for money. If there's a cause we need money for, I will ask directly. 

Some days ago I received an email and this is an excerpt:

"The only reason I am forwarding this mail to you is because in recent times, some people have reached out for help, some anonymously but always referring to your blog . And after the help or confirm of acct credit I don't hear from them no more. Which can be confusing sometimes".  

Guys, is this fair? This blog reader actually sends them money and once they receive it they lock up. Isn't it obvious that some people are up to no good?

Obviously I don't know who these people are, when I started blogging a lot of strange people were asking me for money all the time and eventually I realized that I was going to go broke helping all these people I didn't know, most of whom disappeared once they got the cash. So I stopped. I decided that if I had so much spare cash there are people in my life who also needed help. 

Also, we all have different beliefs, I don't mean to be superstitious but I like to be careful. Some of these "beggars" who claim to come from me/my blog, also ask for (used) clothes. Please people be careful who you give your used belongings to, especially your clothes. I'm not asking that you become tight fisted individuals, I'm only saying that there are some things you should be careful about giving out to strangers. 

I understand that there are people facing terrible issues and in dire need of financial assistance, but I also know that there are some very dishonest people lurking around, looking for kindhearted people to take advantage of. I cannot stop anyone from going about asking for money and making mention of me, but I can at least warn you to be careful before you make that cash transfer. 

And I also want to expressly make it known that I have nothing at all to do with any of it.

  9. The giver(s) must be "very nice" for not confirming if T's aware or actually sent them..let's be careful please. Now,I do hope no one impersonated regular BVs just to sound convincing.

    Welcome back Maybel.

  10. hmmn,someone contacted me then on my blog that she needs my used clothes.thank God i was able to think deep.i ignored her.badbelle people

  11. He who has let him give, for it is better to give than receive. But we have to be careful too.

  12. I think people should verify these 'buggers' before parting with their hard earned money. That said, how do some people find it very easy to beg for money, especially from people they hardly know? That's not nice.

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…
