Everything That Could Possibly Go Wrong.





Being Miss Happy-Hopeful-Hoptismistic I woke up with a lot of positive energy today, ready to take on the world, ready to grab life by the balls! The day was to be very packed, culminating in my friends and I taking a road trip to a resort outside town for the weekend. But has that happened? Keep reading... 

First off I had to make a presentation, in Excel form. I don't know about you but Excel and I aren't BFFs  and then add to that the fact that I use an iPad, that's just pure grief. Yet, I worked diligently and prepared this presentation, very meticulously. I woke up this morning to peruse my hard-work; my handwork, and what did I find, somehow I forgot to click save and unfortunately MS Office on iPads are a lot different. If you don't save then it's NOT saved. Just like that, POOF! all that hardwork; gone! I told myself to remain positive, and even if I couldn't begin to remember all the details and I was certainly going to miss the deadline, I said I'd stay calm soldier on. 

Now let's skip to the next part. I had been asked to come get some papers I'd applied for at a federal government parastatal, and you know how crazy those places could be. I got there as early as I could and then, wrote my name on a slip, passed in on to an officer and waited my turn, as I was asked to. Two hours later and it still hadn't got to my turn, while people that came much later than me got theirs and left! After going to enquire for the thousandth time why I was yet to have my turn, they found the slip with my name, dirtied on the floor. Apparently it had slipped away to the ground for everyone to step on. *Sigh*. Some three hours later I finally got to leave and decided to head back to Lekki. 

On Kingsway road I noticed my car was overheating but I told myself it was alright. However by the time I got to Ozumba Mbadiwe it had reached the extreme height of the heater and as I quickly turned into Mobil, the car went off. 

Hmmm. 

On a day when traffic was insane and fuel queues were acres-long and tempers were high, my car went and stopped right in the middle of the road! Peopled yelled at me, cursed at me, screamed at me... and all I could do was sit and will the freaking car to start. 

It didn't. 

Then this pretty chic in one of the Mobil staff buses said to me "Put your car in neutral and let me get those men to help you push". I smiled gratefully at her and they came and helped me push it to a corner. I had to wait a long while before I could open the radiator, so I sat there under the sweltering sun, waiting. 

Oh, of course at this point the girls had called and called and eventually decided that they had to leave. Theyd already waited for me for hours and they couldn't wait any longer. I told them I understood, there was no way I was going to make it anyways...

Right...

One hour later I'm pouring bottle after bottle of water into the radiator and people are staring at me like I'm a freak. Please is it so unusual to see a female working over an open bonet??? Hia!

Defeated, I headed on home. I couldn't wait to take a shower, heat something up to heat and get into bed. Alas, it was not to be. 

I came home to meet a locked gate. I told you guys some days ago when I was ranting about how much being an adult sucked, that my gateman said he broke his leg in the shower, right? Well after I went out this morning the man went out too, claiming he thought I'd travelled as I'm never here during the weekends. He says his people came to take him somewhere in Ikorodu (or Shagamu?) to have his leg massaged and he would be back in the morning. 

Guys, at this point I thought I would cry. I actually had tears in my eyes as I drove to a hotel near my house and checked in to a room. 

And here I sit, wondering what I must have done to deserve such a horrid day. Did I hear someone say Murphy's law? 

But Nah, I'm too blessed for that. Despite all the seeming misfortune, today came with certain testimonies I just cannot wait to share, so that even in the dark of night I see rays of sunlight. I'm joyful!
will share with you guys soon. For now, I just want to sulk and talk to that guy that loves me, that's the only balm that can soothe my aching soul right now. 

Love is indeed a beautiful thing!

And now I'm smiling again. Hehe. 

I hope your day went much better than mine?

Oh, speaking of love, is there anyone here who's NEVER been in love? Please raise your hand up. I'm cuuuuurious. You've really never been in love with someone? WHY THE HELL NOT?

  2. My day has been........ I don't even know.

    Dragged myself for an audition earlier today, went to my tailors shop to pick all my materials only to see she's carrying another baby. After how many biko? She wasn't looking good abeg.

    Returned home and my reality greeted me. I lost one of the most important persons in my life. My younger sister will be buried on Sunday, Canadian time; Tomorrow, Nigerian time. Setting up for Service of Songs here now. I'm having a headache, I'm weighed down, I'm carrying a burden and I feel sick..... and I've had a long chat with one person that makes me smile but I can't find where to drop this heavy feeling. I need Gods strength to carry on.

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.
