I Hope It's Not Too Late...

I hope it's not too late to say thank you for all your messages, comments, calls, texts, mails and well wishes in general. I appreciate all of it. 

My birthday was simple, seeing as I'm not in Lagos. Yet it was very beautiful. When someone decides on their own volition to make your happiness their top priority, there's no better feeling in the world. 

So I happened to receive some gifts, and who doesn't love receiving gifts? 

You see, I had big dreams, I dreamt of one gift in particular, one that if I'd gotten my year would be made! I didn't get it but I worry not because i know it's still gon come this year, it just didn't happen on my birthday. 

Meanwhile, some people just like drama sha. Thankfully it was the good kind. My friend and I got into this fight, he packed up his things, slammed the door and walked out. I became so distraught and upset that I didn't know what to do. I knew it was partly my fault (Hello moodswings) but that reaction was totally unexpected and a total overkill. I therefore decided I wasn't going to apologize and sat in my rage, stewing. 

Deciding that I needed to distract myself, I got dressed and went to the movies, bought a ticket and proceeded to the hall. As though the world had really abandoned me, I was ALL ALONE at the movies. I sat down trying to watch London Has Fallen and forty minutes into the movie I admitted to myself that it was hopeless. Forty minutes gone and I'd been staring at the screen, yet seeing nothing. It didn't help that I was sitting all alone in the dark in the movie hall. (It seems only Lagosians really take this movie-going thing seriously). 

I then slunk out, feeling so dejected and pissed off that the slugger still hadn't called! How could anyone do this to me a few hours to my birthday???
It was totally unfair but i was going to keep my head up, no matter what it took. Back in bed I tried to convince myself that I was happy. I had so much to be thankful for; my family, my friends, my blog and readers, my health etc etc etc but by 11.50pm, I couldn't keep up the facade anymore and broke down into tears. I was so dramatic about it sha... I even slammed my phone on the wall, almost shattering the screen totally. 

As I sat there wailing, I heard something but I just wasn't sure. Then it came again. It was a knock. A KNOCK! I jumped off my bed, not knowing who it was but grateful for a distraction. I noticed it was 11.59 when I opened the door, and I was greeted with a box of cake, a gift bag and a sheepish grin. 


So I was gifted with a very sinful red velvet cake, some sexy negligee which I don't think I'd ever wear (lol), a bottle of perfume, not just any but an Amuoage; Beloved (don't mind me, i cannot have enough of these, even though I sometimes wonder if the cash equivalent wouldn't be better? #IgboGirl) and yes, a new Samsung phone! Hahaha. 

That's a Google image of the phone btw. In any case I was so stoked, because seconds after smashing my phone on the wall I really started to regret it. Little did I know that in a minute or two I'd be getting a brand new one. Lucky me!

So the day went amazingly well. I got a few more gifts and then I got thrown a small get together in the evening. It wasn't so delightful as none of my own friends were there seeing as I wasn't in Lagos, but it's the thought that counts, and the thought and effort were greatly appreciated. 

And before I knew it, it was 12am, the 17th of March and no longer my birthday. 


Once again, a big thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday. And happy birthday to everyone whose birthday it is this period. 

God bless...

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!
