How's It Going So Far?

Hey guys! 17 days into the year and I'm thinking 2017, it's too soon for all this! 

No, it's not just the fact that I've been on my back for days with the room spinning around me, while reading instagram posts urging all and sundry to GET UP AND GO MAKE THAT MONEY!

It's been other things too. 

And I'm just like, all I know is that I'm going to have a good year. 

A series of things happened in the past week and then today. At some point this afternoon I sat down in the hospital and ignored the moisture in my eyes and said "I really don't care God, I'm going to keep thanking You!"  

And please, let me say thank you for all the calls, mails and well wishes. I appreciate all of it, I'm getting better. 

I guess January just wants to come and take all my headache for 2017 so that I can get that over and done with. Hallelujah! 😂😃☺️

But let's talk about yours. Is it too soon? It certainly doesn't feel too soon for me, I personally can't wait for the month to be over. Let's talk about your year so far. How's it going? Just as you'd expected, better than you'd expected, or not at all how you'd imagined it? 




  1. Awww Thelma I love what you did with your hospital bed picture. You are healed IJN. My year is already starting on a surprising note but I'm believing God it is for the best. And I agree with you, january is always very slow.

  2. My phone is also undergoing medicals. Can't whatsapp no more. Hope my twitter wldnt be affected too. I. Can. Not. Shout biko..

    You wld be fine inugo..

    1. Of course I will be fine. Go away!!!

      Ok, come back

      I was just playing.

      But then, of course I'd be fine.

      Goes without saying.



    2. Lol!!

      Nne what meds are you on?



  3. All I know is I am going to have a good year...I like that.

    1. How can it be Jan 17th already?like seriously?wasnt it like yesterday that everyone was shouting happy new year on Jan 1st?

    2. My year has been great so far as I have been taking it one day at a time,i set daily tasks and I achieve that. It feels awesome not worrying myself to death about what's gonna happen in Feb or in may,i'll rather be pleasantly surprised

    3. And finally today was really awesome as I got a very very birthday present even though my birthday is in September


    1. Seeing as September is like 8mths gonna say a big congratulations. ;) #iknow #babyontheway #ihopeamright

  4. "guess January just wants to come and take all my headache for 2017 so that I can get that over and done with". Thats a great way to look at things jare

  5. Year is moving so fast, I can barely keep up.

  6. The year is moving and waiting for no one,my year started off good and I hope it gets better. you would be ait T. get well soon.

  7. The year should slow down already bikoooo! I have exams coming up and i'm still trying to gather the strength to 'Jack, so pls dear January, can you please slow down for your babe?lol.
    So far so great by the way and i'm glad you're recovering just fine T.


  8. Sometimes I feel like time does not exist. No hours, days, weeks, months. Because things happen to me at the right time. If I am late then the event/blessing/etc will be late for me.

    Im not high. Its just 2:30pm. Im not trying to be deep. Seriously, we put so much pressure on ourselves with this time thing. Those things that you want to achieve that is making you think the year is moving too fast can be achieved over night. You go to bed today and when you wake up you have it.

    Actually, Im hungry. Maybe thats why Im talking shit. Think about it tho. Have your plans and commit them to God, why are you now measuring Gods performance with time.


  9. So far so good. Holding onto God strongly for a better 2017. However this year goes, It will be in my favour. Get well quick sweet Thelma

  10. I can't believe it's been 18 days already... very fast..

  11. Had to look at that pic a couple of times before realizing it is actually an hospital room. Get better soon Thelma....get better soon. Love the positivity too.

    For me I don't know yet, currently on leave and not looking forward to going back to my job.

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.

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!

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…
