Chimezie Asks; Places. People. Feelings?






A CITY: THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS.

I was at Owerri yesterday. I had a matter at the Court of Appeal, Owerri Judicial Division. Immediately, we drove into that capital city, someone came to mind. To be honest, I did not smile. I just kept a straight face and shook my head in my mind.

Again, each time I go to Anambra State and pass Amawbia (your home town) someone else comes to mind too.

Each time I think about any place- a city I've been to or a part of the city (Enugu) where I reside, someone or persons come to mind and the thought of them rouses some sort of feelings. Good, bad, or ugly.

So, I'm asking you, Nwando and other BVs, when you get into a city that you're travelling to, does someone come to mind? And what feeling does the thought give birth to? It could also be a particular part of the city where you reside, or a country you've visited or reside(d) in.

  1. Haha! Yes Chimezie. There are places I've been and people I met there that evoke some feelings when I think of or revisit those places. I think it's only natural. Abuja brings two people to mind. Two people that brought great happiness and later caused great pain. PH will always flood me with an onslaught of emotions at the thought of certain people. Some emotions are good, because that's where the bestie resides. Some emotions are not, because... Well, just because. Abeokuta will always remind me of Fidelia Imuse and Bukola Agbaje and memories of them warm my heart. Shagamu will always remind me of Mr Macho and the chaos he caused, internally and externally. And then there are others.

  3. Oh Yes Chimezie. It's only Natural like Queen said...
    Abuja reminds me of someone & the Sheer bliss he brought into my life. *swoons*
    Lagos reminds me of 3 people, two extremely good, the other extremely Evil. So it's a love hate relationship for I & Lag.
    PH, oh well, family is here but I won't mind relocating, LOL. Too much bad memories & some great ones.
    Calabar & AkwaIbom, Enugu, Anambra & Abia reminds me of awesome people & awesome memories.
    Dear NYSC, U know just where I wanna be!

  4. It's almost impossible to visit a place and not meet people. Memories are made, good or bad so it is what it is.
    For me, visiting Anambra gives me peace, not a single negative feeling is tied to that state for me. Lagos is a delight, too many wonderful people in it for me. To visit lokoja, would be to experience a little regret and disdain at the thought of certain people and experiences. Too many states to run through, but in all the good vibes outweigh the bad.

    Oh yes,
    This happens to me a lot.
    Because we have shared a part of our lives with certain people,
    I am all Chatty when its good memories or i just smile go really quiet and bask in the euphoria of the feeling that the person and place gives me.
    Especially when we are no longer on speaking terms or as cool as before.
    Passing an environment they reside or where you shared memories brings thoughts and a surge of emotions.
    But as i Drive, Ferry, Fly, Waltz, Jog or run past that Vicinity. I remember that nothing is permanent and I leave it all behind pressing for that which is forward like Apostle Paul said.

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
