Life is Sooooooo Unfair!





If you're like me that's always struggling to lose weight you'd relate to certain things. 

Like, this morning on my way to attend a seminar at The Muson Centre, I stopped to grab breakfast at a fastfood restaurant in Victoria Island. I asked for one set of toast and a cup of coffee. I looked at the array of food right before my eyes, from fried yams to akara to boiled yams to porridge yams to scrambled eggs to omelet to chinese fried rice to rice and curry sauce to sausages to pancakes to cream donuts to cakes and on and on, and I looked down at my plain toast and black coffee without sugar. I sighed. 

Then this chic beside me, looking like nwanunu, looking like a tiny bird with brittle bones, had her tray handed to her. 3 portions of toast with eggs inside, then omelet, then a bowl of porridge, then a mug of milo with 3 satchets of milk and four sugar cubes and then orange juice, and water. 

I cried. 

No, literally, hot tears slid down my eyes.

When I was going to eat I had to walk by her table to check if she had company. She was alone. Dear lord. 

I went and sat and watched her massacre her food with delicate fingers while I ate my toast which strangely felt like cardboard in my mouth.  

I guess all I'm saying is life is unfair. Life is very unfair. 

I feel this a few other times too. Like with that my friend who never ever attended lectures, turtorials, joined discussion classes, bought books or even handouts, and spent each semester going from Enugu to Lagos to Abuja to Accra to Jo'burg to Dubai and would come back a week to exams and spend the next few days sleeping then the day before the exams she asks to "glance" through your handouts and notes, then sleeps off shortly... You enter the exam hall feeling sorry for her but you guys come out and you're pensive but she's very excited. She's excited because she had fun, the heffer actually HAD FUN writing the exams! And once it all ends she's going from the exam hall to the airport and you don't hear from her for another week or two. Then results comes out and while you and your discussion group members are struggling with Bs, Cs, Ds, she's the only person you know cleared her papers with many A's. Truly life is unfair. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I know we all have our own "life is unfair" moments. Share yours with me, let's laugh together.

  1. Ah! Where do I start? So many places that I have failed, others have succeeded.
    So the consolation is- Where others have failed, I will succeed.
    The concept of God's Grace also makes it easy to accept that life aint fair.
    I accepted that a looong time ago.

    One day I ran into a friend from Uni. 1) This guy doesnt have a job 2) Im not aware of any business he is doing 3) Im sure I did better than him in School + Iv been working since I left School 4) All he does is slay on IG with his wife. But when I saw him step out of a white 2015 Ford explorer with his wife and kid. I shook him and literally looked at myself from head to toe and just thought - Which kind life!

    Peace.

    1. Yeah a lot, I see my pairs who engage in illegal things to get money and flaunt it on SM, while I do things in the right way and don't get even close to where they are, I cry a lot ,have sleepless nights, but I still believe God will crown all my efforts with success.

    2. Lol. God's Grace is not a "concept".

    3. @Gifty, they don't even have to do illegal stuff, this life is just unfair and there's no explanation for it...sometimes we get the things we don't deserve and other times we don't get the things we deserve so I say we focus on the things that are working well for us and give thanks while praying and hoping for the rest to fall in place!

  3. Sometimes i feel that way especially when i have worked my butt off for something and it gets handed over to someone that doesnt even have a clue of what to do about it, this breaks my heart but then i have learnt that what is mine will definitely come to me esp with crazy office politics.

  5. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But Thelma you should have gotten used to this "diet" life by now. These things should now be giving you goose bumps all over rather than cravings. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Pele.

  6. And then some of us are actually looking to add, even if it's a little weight. But we end up losing and never gaining. In January, I was tops size 8/10 and bottoms size 12. Now I'm size 8 for both. Weight was 60-62kg, now 56..... :( who did I offend?

  7. I wouldn't say life has been good to me but God has been good to me. I'm almost like TNHW with no worries or envy about the other person. Sure sometimes I feel 'oh why aren't my parents richer, why aren't I smarter, why aren't I slimmer and hotter? ' but I also fully understand that this are things I can make conscious effort to change and if I ain't going to be doing that for whatever reason, I have no time to compound my worries by being jealous of the people that have it regardless if whether they merit it or not.

  8. i can relate with the weight loss and watching what you eat. Went out with my friend and i was eating one small portion of ofada rice and a of bottle water while she was eating 3 portions with a big Pepsi. After that she consumed ice-cream and bought chocolates to go at shop rite. life is harsh o. Or seeing my unemployed cousin affording tins i cant because of runz and my dad keeps saying is she not your mate? no sir, she is not, the men giving her the money are not even my fathers mate. venting over.

  9. @ Kon, your comment really really made me laugh!! LOL.
    Yes life is really unfair indeed. But we should always be grateful for where we are though, some people still look at you and think oh life is unfair to me, look at her/him, they are better off!

  10. For me I was one of the people JAMB showed serious pepper and decided to let me have access to tertiary education when some of my mates were either done with service or their masters programme. It was so bad that I never went for reunions. I see them on the road in their fancy cars and I hide so we don't get talking about life and I start feeling sorry for myself. Some of them are even married with about two or three kids and I just rounded off my studies. But I'm still thankful for my life and I'm hopeful.

  13. When you read psalm 127 in the bible. ..you'll understand the meaning of life is not fair.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. It's just what it is...God chooses to show favour to whom He pleases. It's not by your power....however, this doesn't mean one shouldn't work hard.

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

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…

One More Post...

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!

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).
