Passwords. Snooping. Yes or No?

Should married people have passwords on their phones and other devices? 
Yes? 
No?
Why do you say so?

Surprise Surprise! Passwords were not created to protect a person's phone from the spouses alone (or at all). I know right, it sounds strange. LOL. Seeing as the reason most people put security locks on their phones is so that their other halves can't gain access to it... Tsk tsk. So for those who'd say their phones are passworded for general security; should spouses/partners have each other's passwords?
And lastly, SPILL some of the naughty things you've found out while snooping through Bae's phone. All I can tell you is that everytime I've done this it ended in almost a breakup, so I stopped, because I noticed I eventually forgive and get back with him anyways, so what's the point? Well except that one time when I found out exactly a month to his wedding that the boo was engaged, had done his introduction and wifey was heavily pregnant. Yes, that definitel…

"Maybe She's Spiritually Confused".

Ga shi nan Ga mu nan Serki aljana Ya na nan Ga shi nan Ga mu nan Ya na nan
I hummed what could be best described as the Halleluyah Challenge theme song while walking by a table to check on guests. 
"Sorry hold on" a lady urgently told her date cutting him short, and turned to me "Are you doing the Halleluyah Challenge?" she asked. 
I nodded tiredly. I'm not ashamed to say I was hoping she'd say "are you thelma thinks?" 🙈. I've been in need of a pick-me-upper all day...
"I just knew it!" She practically fist-bumped the air. "I could tell from that song you were singing" she said knowingly. I forced a smile kept walking, no longer singing. 
"Which one is halleluyah challenge kwa?" Her date asked. 
"How will you know when you no dey go church?" another lady on the table said. 
"It is one midnight prayer that some people are doing" the lady who spoke to me offered 
"Midnight prayer? Like the thing MFM peop…

Back On The Dating Scene Like...

Aaaaaaaargh!
I swear I'd forgotten how much dating sucks. 
Today I'd have gone on my first "first date" in a coupla years. I got dressed, primped and plucked to perfection but when bobo called to say he was on his way I freaked out. 
So I replied brb to his message and I plopped onto my bed and noticed my palms and forehead had gone sweaty. I suddenly wasn't feeling myself. 
My head started spinning, too many question marks suddenly popping up out of smoke.  What do I want out of this? Am I ready for a new relationship? Do I need just a rebound guy? What does he want out of this? Am I emotionally ready to be with someone new? What if he wants something casual and I start catching feelings, can I handle that right now? What if he's looking for wifey and I just want him for the good times? What are we going to talk about? What do people talk about on first dates? Is he husband material? Is he looking for wife potential? Would he find my directness endearing or off-putting? (I …

The Brand Masterclass & Things... (Thelma Asks).

The above were taken the day before when I joined the decor team to set up. 



Charles O'Tudor with Ubong King and Steve Harris 
Comedian Arole 
The panelists; Chukwuka Monye, Mike Ibezim, Steve Harris, Charles O'Tudor, Ubong King, Ezinne Kufre Ekanem & Kunle Soriyan. 
Me, forced into the only picture I took...

Another reason to thank God. This job was a huge learning curve for me. Not all lessons were great but I'm glad that I was able to execute despite that horrendous rain and windstorm that befell us on Tuesday morning. Seriously, that's another reason to be grateful. I never would have thought that the ladies from the blog that VOLUNTEERED would have made it under that condition. Now not only did they show up, they were actually all very punctual. 
I honestly cannot thank you guys enough, you made my life so much easier on that day. 
Have you guys noticed how everyday these days there's a workshop/seminar/conference going on and they seem to be talking about the sa…

#ThrowbackThursday. Your First Cell Phone!

Throwback to that time in 2003 when one of my mother's omata customers wanted to chop very fresh fruit. I'm even more offended now than I was then, that 17 year old me was being wooed with persistent doggedness by a 40something man. 
What is wrong with you men?😒
So when I got into 1st year he bought me a phone that was certain to scatter my dada and land me in his bed; spread-eagled, offering him my flower on a platter of ..... Whatever. 
Seriously, What Ever.
I'd long dreamt of having my own mobile phone for, like, forever. I mean, some of my classmates in QC already had cellphones while we were still in school and I'd gotten into Uni and still couldn't boast of one yet. I wanted nothing more than a phone. 
But WHATEVER. Lord I hated this Xelibri phone. It didn't only look like an egg, it felt like an egg; fragile af! It was meant to be cute but came off looking like a failed experiment, and in turn made me look like a "forcing guy" aka "I must to j…

Dear Thelma. (HELP! My Fiancee Is Breaking Up With Me Because He Thinks I Tried To Jazz Him)

Good morning T. Please post. My fiance travelled for a month so when he was coming back I thought it may be a good idea to spice things up because we have not seen for weeks. My friend told me about a kayanmata specialist on FB so I called them and then went to their office in lekki. They sell all sorts of sex products for men and women like tightening soaps, soaps to kill viganal odour, medicines for higher libido, sweeter sex, to delay ejaculation and co, and I don't really think there is anything fetish about it because they are all made from natural products, besides their shop is a public place where anybody can walk into. I asked them that I want something that will make me very wet and increase my libido as I sometimes suffer from low libido which he didn't know about. They gave me a small container with something like small stones inside. They said I should insert 3 in my vagina and my mouth, three hours before sex, that it will begin to work after three hours and help…

Would You Marry a Man Like Your Dad?

I heard this question asked severally on Sunday, Father's Day. I was very surprised to see that 8 out of 10 people said NO. 

I've been struggling to answer this honestly since then and I'm still at it. My father is a great dad but would I want to marry a HUSBAND just like him? 
Aha! 

You tell me. Either yes or no, tell me why. 

Oh, and I hope it's not too late to wish Happy Father's Day to Wale, Kon, Eazee E and all the other amazing fathers on the blog. 😍

Joy Isi Bewaji Calls BS On The Halleluyah Challenge.

So the Halleluyah Challenge is eliciting so many mixed reactions. Most people have taken issue to the number of celebrities going there to "mark register" and distracting people who really want to worship. 
But that's not Joy's problem with the whole thing. You've read what she has to say. Do you agree with her?
Angry as she sounds, I actually agree with most of the points she's making. Unfortunately though, she seems to be getting it all wrong, nobody ever said the #HalleluyahChallenge was about praying for Nigeria. I wonder where she got that idea...
Anyways, the participants continue to grow in number. Do you think people genuinely want this, or just hopping on th band wagon as usual?

Please We NEED Your Help

Today, I write to seek your support to help save the life of Nathaniel Temitope Ayeni, my childhood friend's first baby boy. He is just 2months and 17 days old today. He needs urgent surgical operationto treat an ailment called TAPVC(?mixed), Moderate sixe restrictive secundum ASD L-R Shunt, Mild Valvar PS, RV Dysfunction, Severe PAH-. This condition has led to a shortage of oxygen to his system which might cause him to turn blue and also resulting in a conspicuous dark coloring in his mouth; a hint that his system is shutting down.
I will be very happy if you can support us by featuring this on your blog for kindhearted Nigerians to help with their resources, finances and prayers. The family has set up the links below to help raise the money for transparency purposes.

The Brand Master Class 1.0. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!

Hello people! My Events company is in charge of the Brand Master Class 1.0 conference. 
I would be needing some ladies to usher at the conference. It's holding next Tuesday the 20th of June within the Ikeja axis. 
Being a free conference with almost 500 registered attendees, I definitely need ushers. Volunteering means that you're willing to free up some of your time to serve and that's great. However I would cover the cost of your transportation and ensure that you're well taken care of at the conference. Also, you get the opportunity to learn from some speakers that you really wouldn't want to miss out on. One is every woman's #MCM. 😂😂😂. Oh, and of course an opportunity to network afterwards, it's still a birthday celebration, remember? So work over and you're free to socialize. 
Interested? Shoot me an email; thelmathinks@gmail.com and please include your picture. 
Thanks!



Beware, The Busy Life...

The picture above, after a long day, sun was setting and it didn't look like my day was even close to coming to an end. Needed to stretch my legs, the night was still young, flush with work. 
Suddenly I'm always swamped. It's a Sunday. It's 10 minutes to 12am and I just got home. Running helther skelter. Been busy all day. 
I'm elated. I'm ecstatic. I said, Lord, I want to be busy. I want to be preoccupied. I want to be active. 
Suddenly I find myself in the midst of people I'd only read about. I could only dream about. And I'm there with them. They look to me, I talk and they listen. Suddenly I'm the sounding board of great men. They talk to me, they make requests and I must deliver. Suddenly breakfast at 5pm is the norm. 
Now, people say "You're always busy. You work very hard"
It's almost like a drug but not exactly. It's like making sweet love yet not being able to climax. 
And why would I want coitus without the orgasm? 
Beware o…

Telephone!

Ever since I became single a short while back, the number of times my personal phone rings in a day dropped drastically. I was like Oh ma gaaaaad! 😳😳😳
As in, it was so quiet that for a day or two I even forgot I had a phone. 
When I saw this question on @naijasinglegirl IG I thought about it. Like, on an average, on a regular day, I'd say about 5 times 😪😪😪. If I'm working on a project it triples and then some, but on the regular, 5 times. 2 or 3 out of those 5 would likely be from my mum sef. LOL
I used to wish I was one of those really popular (not famous) people who have many friends and business associates, whose phones don't ever stop ringing. But when my phone rings twice in 20 minutes I literally freak out! 😂
What about you?

On Married Bachelors...

A little over a year ago I remember posting something similar to this. Men, married men particularly get to stay out late, party all night on weekends, take vacations with the boys (or with the girl), all in the name of unwinding, de-stressing, letting loose... And I asked, what does a woman do when she needs to de-stress? Or don't women need it too? I've had some tense arguments with a few married men about this; why is it okay for you to do whatever-wherever-whenever in the name of de-stressing, but not your wife? Do you honestly think it's fair?
They get defensive when they realize they cannot come out with any sensible answer beyond the "I'm a man" excuse, even when they realize that the woman does more work than they do. 
Anyways, so the post above, you already know my thoughts. What do you think?
Do you agree with her entirely, in part or not at all? Let's talk about it. Why do married men get a pass to continue living like bachelors while the woman ha…

#TheOneHour Halleluyah Challenge!

If you're on Instagram you must have seen the hashtags and posts over the last few days. The 30-day one hour Halleluyah Praise Challenge is a vision of Nathaniel Bassey and through thousands of his followers, this vision is blowing up into something earthshaking.
A few days ago when it started there were about a thousand people joining in online for the one hour praise & worship session, but last night we were about 13,000 people worshipping online between 12am-1am. 
In less than 30 minutes over 700,000 people joined in. 

The really amazing thing is the number of STUPENDOUS testimonies pouring in by people online who are a part of this Challenge. Just follow @nathanielblow on Instagram and read the hundreds of testimonies and miracles his followers are sharing. I cannot wait to share mine. 
I wouldn't forgive myself if I don't share this with you on the blog, especially for those who haven't heard about it. If you've heard about it, it's not too late to join in…

It's My Best Friend's Wedding After All...

"My husband’s best friend proposed to his girlfriend during our wedding ceremony: My husband and I started dating, got pregnant, had a child, moved in together, bought a house, and got a dog in that order. Our friends and family have asked us for years why we weren’t married yet. We always pushed it off to build better lives.We’ve done really well for ourselves and finally reached a point where we could afford a huge blowout wedding to celebrate our lives with everyone we know and love. My husband’s best friend, “John,” was the best man/officiant. The setting was beautiful, everyone seemed happy, our families were overjoyed. My mom may have used the phrase hallelujah a few dozen times. The entire atmosphere felt moving.So moving in fact that John stopped mid-ceremony to propose to his longtime girlfriend, “Jane,” and reveal her pregnancy. I couldn’t even hear the vows my husband wrote or the rest of the ceremony over the noise of Jane’s happy sobs, her very surprised family who w…

Talk To The Teens...

Last week, on the 30th of May, I was opportuned to talk to a number of young ladies at Aunty Ayo secondary school. 
A few days prior to the program I'd asked one of the most talented and brilliant public speakers I know the three most important things he would say if he was speaking to teenage girls aged 14 to 19. Rather than answer what I'd asked, he said he didn't think I should engage in mentorship programs for now as he felt that at this moment in my life I should be extremely selfish with my time. 
"But what about the fulfillment it would give me?" I asked him. 
"Your fulfillment right now should be watching your monetary investments have children"
LOL. Of course I paid him no mind, but still I was fidgety. I went to him for advise because I had no clue what I would say to them. 
You see, I've been scared silly of teenagers especially the female ones, so I generally avoid them. Days leading to the event I started to wish I'd told Clare I couldn&…

Blue & Yellow.

Walking into my parents' house yesterday for the first time in days after being dealt a hard blow of rejection, trying to hold the tears in, my mum saw me and her eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. "Ah ahn, you're looking fine o!" She said. I rolled my eyes and looked away. "Hmmm" she came closer to me to get a better look, lifting my chin up with her fingers. "You're looking very fine. Ha! I am happy to see you like this o! What is the secret?" She laughed. Indeed she was happy. I smiled politely, tiredly walking away. I thought she was just exaggerating things for reasons best known to her. 
But an hour later when my dad walked in and saw me and bared his 32 teeth in a grin, I couldn't help wondering what that was about. Especially as he just kept grinning and looking at me. "What?" I asked, nearly alarmed. 
"Nothing... You just look particularly thrilling this night... Very... resplendent" he said, smiling cheerily.

No Mrs. No Work.

I feel like I should be venting out in righteous indignation right now, unfortunately I'm too amused to be mad. 
So here's what happened. I was referred to someone to plan and coordinate a book launch cum seminar. Mr A and I had our first conversation over the phone and subsequently Whatsapp. We chatted back and forth for a couple of days, sending my ideas, my quotation, my suggestions etc. 
Mr A said he found me innovative and my prices fair. He said he liked my dedication and he was sure I would deliver. He therefore decided so far so good. Let's move this to the next level. Set up a meeting, talk to me in person, discuss further and seal the deal so that I can get the ball rolling. Sounded great. 
So Mr A asked me to meet him at Marrocaine VI late afternoon. I got there before him, I love to be punctual. He arrived five minutes late, ordered a soft drink and began to ask me questions. I'd come prepared and he seemed impressed. He tried to haggle a bit but I explained t…
