Hello May! May We Meet Up Once a Month?




Heyyyy hunnays!

Happy new month. I hope April was good to you. I liked April, I really liked it, not quite sure why but, it was a cheerful-pleasant-happy month. 

So welcome to the month of May people! God has already gone ahead of us to put things in place for us. I believe that pleasant surprises await me in this beautiful month of May and it will end in loud shouts of praise. Amen. 

I've been meaning to ask you guys if you'd be interested in a monthly meet-up? I love that some good friendships have been formed on this blog and I want even more of that. I'd like us to meet up monthly, network, share ideas, share issues, have a laugh, talk, discuss, eat, drink, and just relax. 

I have a vision for these meets and some ideas, but nothing that's been finalized yet. I'm sure of a few things however. For instance, at some of our meetings/hangouts there'd be table topics, games, topical conversations, Q&A sessions. No set rules really, just basically to connect and have a fun and relaxing time. 

We can also plan to do things to help the community once in a while. Sometime last year, blog reader Sunshine and some friends of hers hired a bus, hired a cook in Unilag to cook and package food and drove to a couple of places in Lagos to feed the less privileged. I really want us to do things like this. We can plan such projects and do our own to touch lives and create impact. 

Once in a while we'd also have persons come talk with us, either from the blog or outside. We'd discuss business, relationships, entrepreneurship and such other topics that could help improve our lives. 

We can attend some shows and conferences together, especially the free ones. Or even plan random hook-ups or dates among ourselves. After all, one of the ideas is to foster relationships so anyone can make their own plans to do things together. 

There's really no limit to what we can do, I'm just particular about creating and building relationships. By relationships I mean business relationships, romantic relationships (I don't mean sexual though, I'm more interested in lasting and meaningful ones, but we're all adults so...) and friendships. I would also like all of us to have that one place that we can come to and be ourselves and go back feeling replenished; and a support system for those who need one.

These meetings will hold either on Saturdays or Sundays. Sometimes it might hold at my parents house in Surulere, sometimes it may hold at my house in Lekki, sometimes a blog reader may decide to host us either at home or wherever they choose, we could all just meet up somewhere, we could visit some places together, and at some point, maybe travel together to interesting locations. 

For the meetings held in people's homes/compounds especially, it'll be nice if as many of us as possible bring something along; cake, food, small chops, drinks etc, or sometimes we could just contribute some money and buy the refreshments. If we're hanging out somewhere then no need for food or contributions, everyone can pay their own way. Bear in mind that whether you bring anything or make any contributions at these meetings, you can still be a part of it. We'll all be alright. 

But first I need to know how many of us would like to be a part of this. I believe that with time the numbers will grow, but I'd still like us to start up with a good number. I also need male blog readers to be a part of this. Uyi left a few months ago for New York, for us to deal with the president that he so passionately voted into power 😝 and so far it's only Kon that shows up. While I absolutely love it when Kon shows up, we'll all agree that it would be nice to have a more balanced outing. 

You can bring friends along.

And your ideas are always very welcome. 


So who's game? πŸ˜‰

  5. When she's planned it all.....Nice suggestion Thelma!

    I'm absolutely in support. Perhaps each meeting should have its theme so everything and anything pertaining to the theme can be exhausted in a light atmosphere as compared to other formal hangouts.

    Also, perhaps the frequency should be bi-monthly or once every quarter. This should make it less stress for attendees and organizers, create enough time for tweaking events, and make it a prized meeting since it doesn't occur frequently.

    Oya, Memphis, Mr. Wale, Adeola, Alfarsi, Kene Francis, Frankly Speaking (who I reckon is a guy), husbands of our married female blog readers and boos of our attached female blog readers etc.....where art thou? Chrisyinks

    1. Thanks a lot for the great ideas, as usual. But I want to clarify that it's not a club o! There is no "taking attendance", and you may come once and not show up for the next few months. I know I wouldn't always be there either. As per stress, even though I envisage something very informal and fun, I do see your point. So yeah, maybe every other month for starters. .

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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!
