Ok, Not Sobbing Anymore!

I woke up this morning. 

First thought; it's Christmas Eve. 

Reaction; panic, dismay, indifference

No particular reason, simply that I've never felt less Christmassy all year. Like I've been waiting all month to get the feeling, I've been waiting all month for things to happen that would get me there, I've been waiting for some magic. Waiting for anything at all. Waiting...

Still waiting.

Christmas is tomorrow. 

And when I actually come to think about it, I've got everything to be thankful for. Family is doing fine and everybody is in good health. Career wise things are making sense. Money is looking good and encouraging. Relationship is going really great save for living in two different states. And life in general is great. 

So why am I 😞?

That was my mood earlier today and I'm glad to announce that I'm feeling so much better and I hope everyone is doing great too. 

If we killed your vibe we're sorry please come back, don't goooo 😒




  1. As iiiiiiiiin, trust me you're not even alone! Been counting and this is the third christmas in a roll that got me feeling all unchristmassy. Plus there's no form of weather change in this part of the country! It's annoying!!!! At least the harmattan would have forced the christmassyness on me...πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

  2. As an adult I am not feeling the Christmas much abeg
    Too many things I planned to do but achieved little
    Anyway it is just a day that will come and go
    Merry Christmas in advance

  3. Me too, I don't feel the Christmas, maybe cuz I am all alone.I wish I had someone.crying

  4. I'm extremely unchristmassy. Cash strapped, no family around, nothing at all. Very plenty reasons. Chai! It is well sha. Sleep in free mode.

  5. Thelma,I feel the same way you do jare..No friends and I cook the same things people look forward to cooking during Christmas.I would be at home or probably go watch a movie...Above all I am thankful...TNHW πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

  6. My husband bought me a club sandwich yesterday and said merry Christmas.. lol. While I am grateful for a lot of things, I dont want to leave my house (irritated by all the traffic)! Just getting over a nasty cold and dealing with 2 six month olds? It doesnt feel like Christmas-I am almost ready for it to pass...

  7. Not feeling christmassy at all, lagos isnt even christmassy and there's no harmattan sef. I can't wait for the new year to come abeg, this has been one very long tiring year.

  8. All I know is tomorrow is 25th which makes it Christmas.
    I am not feeling, smelling or even sighting Christmas...I am just here like I am not here. Let me just go and continue my sleep!


  9. This blog people r killing my vibes... I'm outta here mehhhnn...

  10. You're right, the post is a real buzz kill and it's all my fault. I didn't think this many people would be in a funk too. But don't let it kill your vibe o! Me I'm feeling much better than I was this morning and I hope others are feeling or get to feel better too.

  11. Feels at best like a good weekend n not a bit like Christmas. Just happy I dont feel like I did last year: like the love child of The Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge raised by Eustace Baage. Well, at least therethere's harmattan n my nephew turns 1 tomorrow so there'll be cake. N we're taking pictures! Ok, it's really not bad at all...

  12. I thought I was alone,its just weird really,the weather makes it all worse. I hope to feel different by tomorrow,hopefully.

  13. I always have a grateful heart but it is difficult to feel this Christmas. The level of poverty is scary and it does get to me because of family and friends.

    Don't know what the solution is but I pray that God will intervene and give us the willpower to confront the evil in the land.

    1. A big AMEN to your prayers Mr Wale. that's the most important prayer we need now. God help us.

    2. Mr Wale.... I got out of my shell yesteray to visit people and nnkan ti Oji mi ri 😳😳😳😳😳
      It is well!!!!! Sooo many people are in need. Some don't even know what to eat today... Christmas ke? It is well.

  14. In all, we have to thank God for life.

    I still can't believe tomorrowe is 25th.

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!

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 fiancΓ©? 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.
