I'm a 5Star Chic! (Please Read)

Just when I thought everything was wrong in the world, I tiny piece of irrelevant news goes and brightens my day. 

So here's what happened. I stumbled upon the ad for a Women's prayer meeting holding at This Present House in The Dome, Lekki Phase 1 this morning and I promptly decided to attend and start my day on a positive note. 

The last few weeks have been topsy turvy, physically and mentally, and maybe emotionally too. Last night I went to bed reminding myself some of God's promises for me and I just resigned myself to fate, hopefully fate would be a great outcome!

In any case this morning I requested an uber. As we approached the premises he asked how long I've been using Uber, I told him it's been a while, over a year. He seemed surprised. He said to me that I've got 5 stars on Uber. I didn't even know what that was or what it meant. Well apparently, drivers are not the only ones who get rated. Drivers actually rate their passengers too. LOL. He said all or most of the drivers who've carried me have given me 5stars. (He also added that if a passenger gets 3 or more 1 stars from different drivers, that passenger is blacklisted from Uber. Huh?)

So I asked what that meant, how do they decide how many stars they give a passenger. He said it all boils down to the kind of interactions they have with them and especially how the passenger treats/relates with them. He then went on to share some horror stories with me about some passengers. 

When he dropped me off he said he too would rate me 5stars. Hehehe. 

Unfortunately I cannot take uber ratings to the bank and cash it so.... Whatever. 

But it did feel good to hear...

Anyhoooo, I really just wanted to touch base with you guys. I've not been doing a good job on the blog this month so y'all can rate me 1star for Thelma Thinks. I actually have no excuses to make, hopefully things would get sorted out so that I can put in as much effort into my blog as I should. 

(Now to what I actually wanted you to Please Read). Also this month I promised the #WriteRight winner N10,000 and N5,000 worth of airtime. Unfortunately, we've received only 2 #WriteRight posts this month. I received 2 today. I think this defeats the purpose of #WriteRight so what I've decided to do is carry it over to October. The 4 posts that I've received this month will still form part of the October #WriteRight. To those who wrote, I do hope you understand? 




  1. Thelma the giant! lol

  2. From an empathetic point of view... I would give you a 3.5star rating.

    Hopefully October would be filled with bright ideas to make the blog even more exciting.

  3. Just breaking somebody's heart up and Dan. πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ no me posts am you won't upload comments early.

    Can you disable the approval thing now? I think the trolls are gone.

    1. Kabuoy the only reason you think so is because I don't approve their comments...

    2. 😳😳😳😳😳😳 waawu!

      Okay 😊😊😊

    3. ewoo! was wanting it to be disabled too.

  4. Ahh Thelma o gini is this na. I partially understand but I am equally partially heart broken.

    hoping to replace my lost phone ASAP.

    oh I didn't share my black Saturday. I thought I did.

    okay on Saturday last week. Someone pick pocketed my purse containing my atm card ,my passport photographs, my Siwes program id card, my id cards,my school ids both faculty and departmental, my little change in the purse plus my phone o and even my handkerchief.
    This happened in front of onireke police station o just outside ojo barracks o. just imagine the kind of morale this guy got.

    meanwhile I sent plenty messages to the phone number pleading with him to return my ID's, yet he is still not responding.

    Why me !

  5. infact I am fully heart broken. Anyways God knows the best

  6. sorry kabouy, you would heal just like me.
    I have been so heartbroken by Thelma that i said to myself when i saw your comment "Thelma cant break what is already broken i am thick now and her no post et late approval wont get to me no more...kabouy just have to heal fast"

    1. Loooool! Infact... Iv been broken several times. I don tire! I will heal again. Thanks boo 😍😘

    2. Blink, I tap into that healing.

  7. I was expecting to hear their compensation for being rated 5 star. Maybe free ride or lunch at a restaurant of your choice.

    It all good, Congratulations.

  8. Kabuoy. I used to feel that way some time ago.
    These days it's more of maybe irritation, or anger. Then I close the blog page for another 3 to 4 days, but I'd be sure to find a new post when I return thereafter.
    I tire for Thelma, honestly.

    1. 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
      *hugs* Thelma see as you're breaking people's hearts up and Dan! Mama the mama! πŸ™Œ You're well done ooo!

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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…
