An Unmonday-Like Monday

"Shhhh, don't wake Aunty Nwando up, she's still sleeping", were the words that actually woke me up. 

It was my elder sister pleading with my two boisterous nephews who have no regard for other people's sleep and wanted to jump into my bed and smother me with love before heading to school. 

Well I pretended to still be asleep until they left. They're the brightest spots in my life but I was already feeling upset barely seconds after waking, because just like I realized when my crush asked me last night "what are your plans for tomorrow", I had no plans!

I hate days like this. You know, the one when you wake up on a weekday, the first day of the week no less, already knowing that you have absolutely nothing to do on that day. 

I know I could read, try to write, do some research... But in actual truth I really just wish I had something tangible, purposeful to do. 

Speaking of the crush, I blocked him on WhatsApp after that conversation last night. Blocked him on Whatsapp, blocked his line from being able to call mine, blocked his texts from entering my phone. 

His offense? He doesn't like me the way I like him. 

Remember I asked if I should shoot my shot? Well I did. We're cool, on the few occasions that he calls we talk for an hour or two, we really get along and I feel a connection. 

Unfortunately na only me waka come. 

When I woke up this morning I re-saved his number and unblocked him all over again. 

Apparently it's not an offense not to like somebody back na. I didn't want the awkward conversation we'll have if he eventually reaches me, maybe through another line, and then I would have to find reasons why I went on a blocking spree. "Because you don't like me back!!!" would sound like an infantile rant, or worse yet portray me as a weirdo. 

The truth; "Because I'm not used to this, I'm tired of hoping its you every time my phone makes a sound. I'm tired of the sinking feeling in my chest when it's not you. I'm tired of waiting and waiting and w a i t i n g for your response when I send you a message and I'm tired of receiving a one-liner after waiting for hours for you to respond" may seem too honest and freak him out.  

In any case, crush is the least of my problems on this Monday morning. 

The last couple of weeks have been really busy at my end, and now, nothing! What do you do when you have nothing to do? 😟

And btw who is digging my new hair style? I showed up to sasha bones house with it and she couldn't stop laughing, but that one is her business. I am tired biko.



  1. This your hairstyle is mgbeke 101 lols. Nothing to do, well you could just sleep... That's something yh? Me I'm here wishing I had nothing to do today. This life...

  2. On days you don't have anything to do,nne please enjoy it...It's not going to remain like that forever..😍😍TNHW

  3. I wish this hairstyle can last for a straight week.

  4. Well, I believe taking the shot was the best, at least now you know your stand, you will be able to prevent further buildup of emotions and let things simmer down.

    What do you when you have nothing to do is do nothing. You can just sit back, relax and go strategize,brainstorm and all that.

    Lastly the hair looks good on you. I like your edges.

    Another girl

  5. I love ur hair style thelma.

  6. shey na this hairstyle dem de call Olamma πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    About crush, atleast you like someone. I've been putting in effort lately to like someone and it feels so plastic. This shit ain't for meπŸ˜­πŸ’”


  7. I had nothing to do yesterday, same today too and although it can get really boring, I’m going to enjoy every minute of it before I go back to my 5am to 10pm days..

    I’m going to see if I can catch a movie today and also visit the salon (if only to drool over the foooine male hairdresser πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ).

    Please enjoy the nothing-to-do days so when the crazy 16 hour days come which they will, you’ll look back and console yourself with the fact that you had some free days and you enjoyed them tremendously.


  8. Wait. Im not getting this. You blocked the guy because he doesnt like you the way you like him? Whaaat?

    Thelma, if you were a guy you wouldnt get chicks because your game is not 100% (Ill give you 30%). Some people show feelings slowly, is he supposed to start confessing all his feelings just because of some long phone calls and a few hang outs? And then blocking him??? Huhhh? My friend! Go and unblock the guy. Geez!


    1. Errr, excuse me, I'm a lady so keep your 30% to yourself. I am used to being chased and wooed and sort after. I've unblocked him but nigger should miss me with that "show feelings slowly" shite. Bye Kon. 🚢🚢

    2. Thelma πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸ½

  9. re: your crush, that was the whole point of some of us telling you not to call him. as archaic and old-school as it sounds, a real guy loves a good chase. a guy who likes a girl enough will want to call her at every opportunity he has. if the girl has to remind him of her existence, he will indulge her and have that conversation, but the girl would find that she is the one that keeps on trying.
    ofcourse when your interaction reaches a certain stage, the woman can start making the call, but those first initial conversations are crucial in setting the pace of how things will go.
    speaking of no plans, I have no plans for the next few days, except go shopping, make some phonecalls and binge on Netflix. I kinda love it!!

    1. Let us do it together nah! 😩
      Ooo... my leave has finished πŸ˜₯

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.
