#ThrowbackThursday. My Absolute Worst!

Hey guys, in the spirit of #ThrowbackThursday lets reflect on our secondary school days. I was just going through my cousin's report sheet and he's got As in maths, biology and physics. And it makes absolutely no sense to me that someone so smart could get an F in English. Like, it simply defies logic!

But looking back at high school, there were those super smart further math geeks who chewed on maths and sciences like it was suya but the just couldn't understand English. I'm still yet to understand this. 

For me, that one subject that I hated, HATED, and never seemed to do well at no matter how hard I tried or how much effort I put into it, it was maths. 

Subjects like English, government, commerce and literature were a breeze for me. But maths, maths... 

Math was my worst subject in secondary school

What was yours?



  1. Just like your cousin, English. Had F9 when I took my SSCE exams. Anonymous

    1. Hahahahaaa @ F9 in English

    2. Lol. I know who you are...

    3. Yes you do. Mistakenly typed Anonymous instead of my alias. Chrisyinks

  2. I hated government and English. For maths once you understand the steps, you are good to go.


  3. Maths was mine too! Those geeks that used to fail English tho! English was one subject I could write the exam without reading for it ..

  4. I never liked Igbo as a subject and guess what tribe I'm from?

  5. Subject I disliked the most in secondary school was Geography. The most effort I put in it was managing to write my notes (and there were plenty of notes to write). Expecting me to read them would have been asking too much. For SSCE, I managed to get a Credit though, goodness knows how. The only thing I remember studying for the exam was map
    Chemistry almost became my least favourite subject though. I remember my first Chemistry exam the marked scripts came out, and I think I got 12 over 40. The whole concept of atoms and electrons in K, L, M shells was really not sitting well with me. Fortunately, my mum got me a Chemistry lesson teacher, and I spent my long vac getting drilled in Chemistry. By the time I went back, I ended up coming first in Chemistry in the whole year (might I add that having a really cute Chemistry teacher in SS 1 significantly piqued my interest in the subject... lol)

  6. Oh how I love English.. I didn't hate maths cos once I understood the steps (which usually took hours of studying with an Efiko), it became easy. Literature tho, oh how I hated that subject! Especially the poems. The poet would say "the rose is red" I would read "the rose is red" like any normal human should but no, my teachers would find a way to relate it to some tragedy somewhere or something completely off point. I liked it in my SS3 tho cos my teacher was foooooine! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I still don't know how I got a B3 in the subject.
    I loved the books tho, I went out and bought a whole bunch of them in January just to read them again ("our husband has gone mad again" killed me too many times).

    I also hated Economics. My SS1 teacher was a perve, my SS2 teacher was this boring old man, we used to run out of the class when we saw him coming, my SS3 teacher was my SS1 teacher.. I managed to pass it at WAEC and ended up studying Economics in the Uni, I'm still not sure I like it but I passed in school sha..

  7. Mine was Chemistry, just because Mrs. Awonranti. By HIS Divine Mercy I came out with a C6.

    1. Chemistry, Physics, Geography and Agric in no particular order.

  8. I was good in all subjects. Although I hated economics, I still passed it. All I had to do was give it few hours. But maths,first love. It broke my heart everyday of my university days that my course had nothing to do with maths.

  9. Hate Chemistry because of the Igbotic Chemistry teacher. When you ask him a question and he cant explain he will say "Just take it like that" Like WTF?
    I made a mistake going to a science class. I kept on failing Physics, Chemistry and Biology through out. And why the funk are the books so big?


  10. .....The poet would say "the rose is red" I would read "the rose is red" like any normal human should but no, my teachers would find a way to relate it to some tragedy somewhere or something completely off point.......

    Spot on!😩😩😩😩😩
    I never understood this. Maybe the teacher was seeing what I couldn't. Lol


  11. Omo! Sunshine of life, I luved ur comment d most.

  12. I disliked physics and it's simply because all the teachers were terrible. Biology was too broad. Now maths and further maths I excelled, I had an A1 in both. πŸ˜€

  13. Haha, i hated maths, i dropped Further Maths after SS1.

  14. I realised that the subject teacher if these courses mattered alot.
    My back ground in maths was faulty so I hated it.
    I excelled in further math BUT was average in math.
    The thing get as e be.

    I loved Biology then. I was so sure id be a doctor . I'm glad I "yam not"

    I never attended literature class but had an A1. cos I wanted to study law so I just sat for it to balance my subjects.

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.
