Dear TTB Family, I Need Your Help.

I have not been doing well for a very long time now. I can't sleep and i'm slowly becoming depressed. It just seems like no matter what I do I can't seem to stop struggling and believe me I've done a lot. Even though I have a job, the pay is poor and even if I were to manage it, it is irregular (currently being owed for 3 months now). I didn't mind at first as it was close to home. I love working for my organization (it's a training organization and I have learnt a lot), I especially love working for my boss, she has been a blessing and a big sister to me in a land where I don't know anyone.

My current situation is that I had move from my former residence to somewhere farther away therefore my transportation has tripled coupled with the subsidy removal. Secondly I was employed as an administrative staff but at the beginning of this year, my boss (the man) told me to take up a marketing and sales role part time. I didn't like it as I had specified during the interview period that i'm not great at marketing and it's not something I will love to do but I couldn't argue and I did my best to bring clients as I could. But just last month, he informed me that I have to go into marketing fully as well as meet targets.

He's given me a target for this month which i'm not even sure how i'm going to meet, only for him to tell me to get ready to start working full time every Saturday and on some Sundays which automatically means that I'm going to be working at least 6 days in a week with no salary increment or allowance of any sort (please remember we are yet to be paid for 3 months now).
I am intelligent and taking up these new responsibilities is not really the problem, the issue is that I do not like these roles, I'm not passionate about them and knowing the kind of person I am, if my heart isn't in something then there's no way I can succeed in it. 

I've been struggling for so long now i'm even amazed at how much I have been able to manage and adjust. I can't call home as often to ask for money because at least i'm working and I often feel embarrassed whenever i'm pushed to do so as i'm not a baby anymore. Thankfully my mum is self sufficient but still I should be able to take care of her or even buy her necessities once in a while. 

I'm engaged to a very wonderful man who wouldn't mind doing everything for me but he just started working last month (God be praised!) after 2 years of finishing his training, and we are planning a small wedding soon, but at the moment I don't have much to contribute to the wedding or our marriage home, and remember he's only been working for less than a month after being unemployed for two years. 

I'm hardworking, intelligent and  proactive. I'm great at roles that i'm passionate about (Administrative, Operations, Human Resource and every other thing in-between). I just wish I can get a better job where I can express my full potential and give my best to the organization while earning enough to take care of myself and my dependants. I don't know what to do, where to go and who to call, but in my despair and desperation, I felt led to send you this mail. I don't even know if/how you or any blog reader can help me but here it is T. Please if anyone is hiring, or if the organization where you work is hiring please say so in the comment or mail Thelma for me. I live on the mainland and eventhough I will prefer to work not too far because of transport costs, location is not a limitation and I am prepared to work hard. 

Thank you and God bless. 


  1. Keep your head up. Start your job search aggressively. I mean real aggressive. Get on linkedIn and other job sites daily like its food. I believe if you put real work into the search, you will get a job. By Gods Grace.

    I also think you should take the marketing role more seriously. Have one thing at the back of your mind - YOU ARE WORKING FOR YOURSELF! As you meet clients, open general discussions with them and see how you can position yourself to exploit opportunities. Dont only sell your company, sell yourself! Iv seen marketers resign and move to companies they were marketing to. Stay sharp. The Lord is your strength.


  2. You wld be fine...

  3. What HR experience do you have? Let me know.

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!

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.
