To calm down....

... from the jitters of waiting for my turn at being appraised

I'm just going to do a random of titbits of stuff that have happened to me in the past few days

Today i was thinking about my ex while driving and as it usually happens in movies

I look in my rear mirror

and Lo he appeared

I thought i was seeing double and looked again and truly it was him

So i slowed down hoping he would catch up with me

Just wanted him to see me, we haven't talked or seen each other in aeons

I suspect there was a chick in his car

because he slowed down and started to drag like a snail and seemed to be trying to not to catch up with me

I sped off, good riddance to bad rubbish

loud hiss

Then i became moody and i'm still moody

Too many unpleasant scenes from the past just hovering around my head

whatever

Now i'm reliving some scenes from my last training where one guy was making a presentation and talked about sending "XMX" wasn't sure and had a puzzled look until he repeated it and…

It's.....

....appraisal time

Not too happy today


Too many issues up and down


Oga usually remembers all those small small errors at this time

The efforts put in for some odd reason escape unnoticed

I am so not excited today


UPDATE: It didn't turn out too badly after all. Not a great score but not a bad one either ;)

27 days of Thankfulness

So i've been tagged by Afrolicious and i'm racking my brain on how to express my appreciation to the Almighty in words!!!!



Usually i just cry ;)



Anyway here goes.....



I'm thankful to be alive today, it's a real priviledge not everyone in the world gets it daily!!!



I'm thankful for my family, we quarrel all the time ;) But i won't trade them for silver or gold



I'm thankful for my two bestest friends in the whole wide world !!! i've met many people but you two just rock my world. i don't know what i'd do without you both.



I'm thankful for God's mercies, it's the only way i still have a job, clothes on my back, small change in the bank and my car!!! Plus my many other assets;)



I'm thankful for where i've come from and where I am now, it's been a tough road to walk but he saw me through it all

I'm just thankful for the many second chance(s) i've received to start over and set things kinda right.....

I'm thankful for good …

The battle of the bulge

Just realised i haven't blogged in almost a month.....

Work has been quite crazy

My new boss is a "workaholic/perfectionist"

I have nearly died from all the pressures ;)

Anyway i digress

Over the past month(s) i have tried to lose weight especially around my mid riff aka tummy

It's quite big you see. So much so that i've had people actually ask me if i'm pregnant.

I've tried sit ups with a tummy trimmer and i jog(more like run) for half an hour on Saturdays.

However for some odd reason the arrow on the scale is still pointing upwards or refusing to move from it's current position of 78kg.

I am at a loss as to what to do really....

Some time back i gave one fellow a ride. He's not my friend or anything, heck i don't even know his name.I was just being neigbourly because i had seen his face around the estate.

The silly punk had just after sitting for 3 minutes in the car had the impudence to tell me"shey u know u're getting fat?" to shut …

My washman.....

Just quit on me oh.

Got this text from him and i've been in stitches since

" Sister, pls be research for another laundry becs I will be round up my service wit U On 1st of Nov.@ d appointment will terminate henceforth. I will come with my iron on d 1st 4 ironing d remain clothes. Thanks

I'm still so so amused at this text.

Meanwhile na fire on the mountain be this oh, because i cannot iron to save my life LOL

Burnt Toast!!!!

I've had the image of "Burnt Toast" looming over my head since i stumbled on some write up about Teri Hatcher's book titled accordingly.





It was just a few lines but the concept has refused to leave my mind...





All day my mind has been processing and re-processing how much "burnt toast" i have consumed over the years, especially as it relates to "man matters"





The way it works basically is this, you try to make a toast or toast bread, and for some reason either because you're distracted or you wander off it gets burnt.





Then you think what the heck and you begin to scrape the top, just so that you don't have to re-start the process of making another toast.




For some slices, you have to scrape and scrape till the entire first layer is off and what you have isn't exactly toast anymore LOL
In some cases you slather on loads of butter, margarine or jam to hide the burnt taste.



You know you're not enjoying the meal, but you sit there anyway and pr…

To be or not to be.....

Just the way to round my day up;)

I've got this gentleman in love(or so he says) with me...

I kinda like him too(sometimes at least)

We've shagged in the past, it was more out of to reward him for his "efforts" that i started shagging him.

We couldn't just graduate into something beyond occasional shags

I moved onto another relationship and he did likewise

There's a long pause in our friendship

After many years we start to act civil towards each other and begin to call each other and stuff...

Then he tilts the usual way,

"He wants me" , "he loves me"" he needs me"

All code for let's shag

For some reason, let's say stupidity (for the purpose of this conversation)

I shag him again, knowing fully well that he has a girlfriend

Who he keeps claiming to like but not enough to shag her,

It's me he wants to shag!

He says i should feel lucky, he wants (to put his lean prick inside me- my words)me instead

In the spirit of our friendship devel…

This morning like.....

..... many other mornings,

I stood in front of my closet( sorry afro i meant my wardrobe ;)

and looked at the heap(s) of clothes and tried to decide which of my many shirts/tops/ trousers/skirts etc to wear this morning

i couldn't help but bless God because there was a time when i didn't really have a choice

It was either my blue jeans and a green top or my black trousers and the other top.

I've come a very long way.....

I truly bless the Almighty God.

He's the reason we have and enjoy so many things we think are normal(and maybe even take for granted)

I started off very rough

Looking back now, i've walked a really long road.....

Father, this morning once again, i appreciate your mercies :)

"Under matters"

I'm currently wearing a G-string that has nearly sliced my anus into two.....

All in the name of latest fashion.

May my poor buttocks survive this day.

This is excruciating pain truly....

I need some "ep" people LOL

No Nollywood no!!!!!

Nigerian movies are favourite past time of mine....

Their stupidity is just "world class"

All my friends cannot understand why or how i manage to sit through them

I call everyone while watching to lament about this or about that ;)

And sadly these movies just ain't improving.

Last night i was watching a "Yoruba" movie and was astonished to see that three of the actors' names' were Linda, Stella and Michael and these are supposed to be Yoruba people oh. It just does not make sense, if they are supposedly selling Nigerian culture why not "native names"?

Some other film i watched ages ago had the star actresses named "Beyonce and Atlanta".For goodness sakes who names their Nigerian children that?????????

But hey i digress :)

The next movie i watched was an "English" movie and so naturally all the actors had "English" names, no i didn't mind at all,after all we need to match up with our contemporaries in Hollywood who bea…

So why.....

Do we say we eat/ate "3 square meals"???????????

What makes the meals square?

And then do we

"Drink" or "Eat" pap, custard, garri, cereal????????????

Just wondering;)

What a day!!!!!!!!

Today started off quite "terrible" I got a tummy upset from midnight and couldn't sleep because I was busy wondering where my younger brother (who refused to come home) was all night.

Finally got some sleep between 5.30 am thereabout and 6.30am. Rushed to the bath and drove to work. Thankfully there wasn't heavy traffic.

Got here and tummy was still running!!! Endured the pain which further escalated when my new Oga decided to use me as "i'm your Oga" practise today.

There was a little communication mix-up and she went into a frenzy, yelling and yelling and crowned it all by saying "she didn't like people lying". Meaning "this girl u dey lie".

All the while your truly was praying that the poop will not start dripping down because my tummy was swirling, the more she yelled at me. LOL

Thankfully there were no accidents.

The day has just ended and i'm only just getting a breather

It truly has been one of those days and in fact week whe…

This is just hilarious!!!

I just saw an ad in the dailies congratulating Mrs Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke on some award she got and it was tagged

" Congratulations of the highest order"

Can you just beat that i'm still laughing here LOL


Today has been quite amusing i've thought of all sorts of things to blog about and alas they've all flown outta the window(more like my head)

Maybe it's because......

Because......

;)

What's in your handbag?

Though it actually is as big and heavy as "hand luggage"?????????? LOL

I looked at the contents of my bag over the last weekend and i was quite "shocked" at the load in it....

They seem many but i'm sure i "need" all of them

I trust that it's the day i lighten it, that i will need something i just removed!!!

Anyway here's the list of what's in my "N15,000 leather bag from Italy" today:

3 notebooks-one is new i'm trying to start using it ;) and hoping to discard one of the old ones

My make up purse

2 sets of keys- Car and room

A novel( trying to develop a reading culture you see) LOL

A comb

Hand cream

Powder

Hand mirror

Small umbrella

Perfume

Cheque book

I just added Hand sanitizer(too many germs everywhere you see LOL)

My wallet

ID card and pens

So that's the list for today.

Not too much yeah?

Ok, i tag Overwhelmed, Afro babe and everyone else who stops by this page.

Let's see what's in your handbag/luggage LOL

My boss hates me!!!!!

That must be the ONLY reason he would assign me a task that involves preparing a document, a powerpoint presentation and printing several manuals at closing time!!!!

I'm just so so raving upset right now....

Hissing so loudly, all to no avail here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And to think i've been lounging for most of the afternoon

Why in blazes??????????

Do people respond/answer " I'm fine" when you say hello to them???????????

It keeps occuring and it just drives me nuts, this afternoon again


I said "hello" to a colleague and she responded 'I'm fine'

Arrrrgggghhhhhh

Sitting here as nervous as a bat!!!

Ok so there's this guy,

We were in the same university even though we were not friends

Then fate made us serve(NYSC) in the same town and his house was around the corner from mine

We started talking at the tail end of the year and became "friends"

He kinda indicated interest, in that one night, that he came to see me and it got so late he had to crash in my room and of course attempted to shag me(Naturally)

We didn't do it anyway, and even when I had to crash at his, nothing happene.

Many years later, we met up again and have started talking

He has invited me out a couple of times and says we can always end up at his place if it's too late for me to go home and so that we can catch up on our lives i presume.(He works pretty late most times)

He makes many jokes about marrying me

He's cute and has a steady job. I'm suspect he could make a good boyfriend/partner and maybe even husband!!!

Last week, i was in a training near his house and i asked if i could stay at his …

You cannot force a horse to drink.....

I'm just here to rant this morning.

I've got a friend, we're pretty close.

Over the last year and a half, she's been through immense pressures and challenges in every area of her life

I have been as supportive as i could especially because i was also challenged in some of those of those areas. I looked at my situation and dusted myself, made ammends were necessary and i'm better(definetely) than i was then.

Now because, i "love" my friend, i have provided steady support via a listening ear, actions where necessary and physical presence over and above the fact that i had to neglect family and friends sometimes during this period.....

Despite the fact that she has several annoying habits that i do not like, i have tolerated her excesses all the while gently correcting and giving her tips to get out of the challenges.

Recently, i realised that half my "advice" was not being heeded to and i seemed to be pouring water into a basket. Moreso, i was "tak…

Toxic Friends!!!!

How really do we rid ourselves of friends and friendships that have recurring negative energy??????

Toxins, constant issues that half the time make no sense.

You've tried to stay away but no..... it all just keeps coming back

All the constant drama does get boring and it is quite draining you know....

Arrrrghh!!!!!

Patterns

This article really struck me, the coloured bits really really struck me ;)

Be Aware of Your Patterns



If you're like most people, you've probably noticed some(certain) patterns in your life.



True



By "patterns," I mean situations that seem to show up over and over again; the cast of characters may change a bit, but the end results remain the same. In and of themselves, such patterns aren't necessarily good or bad. They can be the source of boundless joy or tremendous frustration, economic abundance or financial struggle.



In fact, it's quite likely that you have both positive and negative patterns in your life right now.



For instance, maybe you've worked for numerous bosses who have been very critical of you. No matter what company you're with, the same result occurs. This is a pattern.If you honestly analyze your life, you will see that you have created (and continue to create!) many patterns-- some that serve you and others that hinder your progress.



At the…

It's time to attend to myself!!

Over the past few months(years actually) i've neglected "myself" and busied myself tending to others(who haven't quite appreciated it i must add) instead and so now i'm taking a step back to work on "me" and improve "moi" and have a generally enhanced well being. I've just realised that after serving God, that's one of "D koko's(essence) of being in this life.



I'll be detailing the steps i'm taking and measuring how well i'm doing on this thingiiiii!!!!



Someone forwarded this to me and i found some of the tips useful, i've marked the ones i can and will do in yellow and put some of my thoughts in green!!!



36 CHRISTIAN WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS


An Angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."


1. Pray


2. Go to bed on time.


3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushe…

Before Sunday.....

It had been a long week last week,

All i wanted to do this weekend was watch movies and catch up on sleep!!!!!

It started off well and kinda normal.

I bought petrol so that nothing would hamper my plans, there was food all over the house so i won't get bored. I had a book to read and magazines to catch up on.

Nothing could go wrong, my plan was fool proof.

Nepa was at it (as expected) on Friday morning before i left for work and thanks to the generator i didn't quite notice it.

On Friday , i got home quite early, all just so that i could catch up on my sleep.

and then it happened

Nepa had struck and i attempted to put on the generator.

I heard a loud bang and took off...

To cut the long story short

Generator no gree work,

The whole weekend Nepa didn't flicker for more than ten minutes.

I was so so depressed.

Surprisingly i was calm through out, normally i'd have started to throw tantrums but this time i took it all in my stride.

This country especially Lagos is tough to live in true.

On Sunday....

My Pastor said that we should



1. Realise

Where we are coming from

Our past mistakes

Where we should be

Where we are headed

Who we are



Etc



2. Repent

Of all our past sins

Of our past ways



3. REPENT



Of all bad things

Etc



4. Restitute



Make ammends for our past sins(where we are able to do so)

Desist from doing bad bad things ;)

Live right

Pray harder

Work harder



So that our life can be good and we can go to heaven;)



I commit to doing all these today, so help me Lord



N.B- This is a short summary of all that was said.







So Far So Good....

This month has been quite "dry"

So far nothing "note worthy" has happened

Everything just seems to be so stagnant and nothing exciting is happening to me!!

Keeping my fingers crossed to see what the rest of the month will unfold for me;)
Just like in the movies.....

The friendship started off quite ordinarily

He was easy to talk to.....

I was in a real jam, he sorted me and provided a shoulder to lean on during that period

We hung out as often as we could

Those were such happy times

Many many months and maybe even years after in a sudden "aha" moment he gave me a kiss

We took it further and ended up making fire under the covers, i killed the fire and chased him off as soon as i realised it was " he" on top of me

I didn't realise he was really fond of me

I thought what i wanted or rather was looking for will appear in a finer and bigger package!!!!


Some little girl appeared on the scene

I teased him mercilessly about it

He suddenly disappeared and i got more absorbed with my life

Last night I saw him, he's in the country on a short vacation

With the little girl in tow......

I was with him till pretty late

We kissed

It was quite passionate

Just like in the movies

And then i realised he had become what i was l…

Imagine this.....

Image

All sorts!!!!!!!!!!!

My ex sent me a text last nite saying I had put him in trouble...



Nothing nasty, more like a mischievous text in fact.



I called back but he was already asleep, so this morning I call him and he says " oh some chick he's seeing found out we had shagged after breaking up(Okafor's law was in effect here)!!



And i thought big deal,i'm not going to go on a guilt trip cause of that!!

This morning, he sends another text saying to please buzz him when i'm free.

I do so and he gives me a mini-shocker.

He says the little girl wants to talk to me. Now i'm like what's that about?????

So out of curiousity i collect her number( i don't want her having my no and all that paparazzi) and give her a ring from my office line/phone.

She picks and i say "so i heard you wanna speak to me" Then she says she just wants to apologise for coming between me and my ex... she's so sorry, she don't want me bearing her grudge and stuff. That she didn't know he was inv…

Last night....

I couldn't sleep

It was cold

I remembered the passion we shared

Morning, Afternoon and Night

Your touch always felt the same

At those times

Nothing else mattered

Just your gentle voice(twas at that time anyway)

And the sound of my name on your lips and yours on mine

I loved scratching your arms at those times

The tingly feelings you always made me feel

All gone now....

I really missed you last nite!!!!!

You know who you are

Living In Lagos Can Be So....

Horrendous and traumatic!!!!!!!


Woke up late and decided not to rush off because i anticipated traffic on all the roads.

So i left home when i "guessed" that traffic would have eased off however i still drove in traffic for over one hour and a half.

The roads were flooded, pot holes everywhere!!!

In fact i don't think anyone in this office got here early today, na so so traffic we all dey complain....

I'm about to write a petition to the Lagos State government. They just have to do something about this mess on all the roads

Ahahn

What a mess truly....

Today i just didn't feel like work

So i lied to everyone that i had to see a doctor and i came in at about 1pm.

Stopped by to talk with my ex instead.

My work of course suffered and i really felt bad so i decided to stay extra hours and correct my wrong.

May the Almighty God forgive me for this bad thing i did today.

I'm truly tired of this work, but on searching my self i realise that i have barely put in any extra effort into the job and thus i shouldn't expect it to fufill me so much

I also stumbled on the scripture that asks us to "do things/ work diligently/ make our service as unto God instead of unto man" and i commit to doing that henceforth.

I will be here before resumption time as much as is within my power except on days when traffic is truly beyond me!!!

And actually work diligently, instead of chit chatting and browsing silly sites...

I need to put a lot of things in order.

I have realised that i have spent a great part of me and my time trying to please others/make them happy and much to a large …

I talked with my ex last nite/today....

And if only....

I could turn back the hands of time

I would not have always hung around him like i had no other life asides with him

I would also not have got into so many "fights" just because i wanted to spend the night with him

Looking back now, i should have allowed him BEG me and done so only on rare occasions.

My bad,i thought it was good opportunity for us to bond.;(

Apparently he was never quite tripped by it.

I also would never have come clean about my real financial status(then). I thought we could walk that path together

I cringe every time he mentions "how i am unable to manage my monies"

All because i came clean and told him about my "investments that went down the drain"

I thought i was also doing the right thing every time i quarrelled with my folks just to be with him.

I didn't think he'd encourage me because it's not a nice thing to do i know.

But i definitely didn't think i'd ever hear him use these things against me.

I mean i …

While i was busy....

A close friend of mine has had a bit of financial troubles recently and i was busy casting stones at her (albeit i my mind) and feeling like i was better than her because my money(and even other) woes didn't seem so "prominent" or "visible" to the world.



Only when i took a step back and brought my nose down from my high horse did i realise that my financial challenges were many too and i really am not on top of my game as per money matters n stuff.



The difference between us, may be the fact that i am aware of some of my excesses that cause me these strains and i am on the path to recovery. By tracking my spending(s) and cutting down on frivolities until i'm back at my financial apex(or at least i'm quite close to it) I believe i'm well on my journey to "squeezing water out of this rock" called money.


I know it's not easy but my contemporaries are doing "big things" with their monies and i will not be left off this band wagon!!!



S…

I don dey old oh!!!

After spending like 5 blissful days at home thanks to the NLC strike(which affected all Nigerians except the government)

I resume(d) back at work today....

Not quite happy to be here actually, wish i could continue to stay in bed and still get paid..

So now here I am sitting here, drinking cranberry tea ;) and blogging

Anyway it was quite a happy weekend for me

My birthday was yesterday and my best friend/sister's birthday was on Saturday.

There was quite a bit of celebration as we "partied" throughout the entire weekend.

We made so much food and noise and on Saturday even though Nepa didn't give us electricity and there was no fuel in the gen, we had some friends over and had a happy time, taking pictures, eating and making plenty of noise.

The night took a different turn though when my ex decided to give me and my friend his perceived view of my shortcomings.

Tried not to get angry, and took it all in, believing that he was sharing these in good faith and supposedly for my…

Just imagine this kind of sight being captured on cameraand the punks will be stopping people to ask for "fire extinguisher"

God help them if they come near me anytime soon to ask for any stupid documents or worse still "fire extinguisher"

Loud hiss....

Today.....

Today started off a bit "normal"



Normal in the sense that i woke up late as usual...



Stayed up late watching desperate housewives and arranging room and of course the after effects were quite expected. Traffic was quite "unusually" heavy and i was stuck in it for hours... Living in Lagos can be quite trying really!!!



These days i try to get to work early, it's just so difficult because the work conditions are not getting better and it's a real challenge making it through the day



I'm thankful for the job but seriously things could be better for me.



However in the spirit of being positive i say to myself as always "This job is a stepping stone to greater things. My situation will change very soon and i will find a job that best suits me and pays very well and i'll be happy to come to work daily" "Things can only get better for me, i choose to be unfazed by my immediate surroundings"



I got in and my Oga tried to grate on my last nerves, b…

I need to know!!!!!!!!!

My birthday is in two weeks and i'm trying to figure out these stuff:

What is most important to me?

What are my values?

What really motivates me?

What am I known for?

What do i want to be remembered for?

I feel it will help me on this my path to self discovery...

I feel like my life is about to be transformed

I wonder who/what I am about to metamorphose into;)

I feel like i've kept a lot of my treasures locked up on the inside for too long...

I've spent a greater part of my "adulthood" still being a child....

Things are definetely going to have to change around here....

Wash your "Golds"

This morning as always i observed the streets of Lagos and it's many "absurdities" on my way to work.

Firstly, I woke up from my wonderful and happy dream where i was able to buy petrol in my car and in like five jerry cans( there's a fuel scarcity in Lagos at the moment) and i had been quite traumatised by this (apparently) especially since the fuel tank in my car showed red yesterday evening on my way from work (lol)....

Anyway i spent the better half of my commute(i like that word sounds so European) i guess hustle is more "lagos like" ;) . Ok so, hustle reading my book and looking at inscriptions on buses!!!

Today i didn't see any extra ordinary ones, and was quite disappointed! However my moment came when i saw a sign across a stall, saying "IDERA JEWELERRIES" now i didn't mind that as i am used to the fact that around here people call jewellery- jewelleries... the part that totally cracked me up was " WASH YOUR GOLDS" lol...

Wa…

Seeing that i'm distracted today.....

Since i entered this office today not one work have i done ;)

All I've done is read blogs and generally just day dream!!!

So i decided to make the best of the rest of the day by blogging again(lol)

Such productive work abi?

Anyway as suddenly as it started my "office romance" is waning off and i don't even know why!!!

I'm kinda sad because i was actually getting fond of d bugger...

Last nite i gave it a final attempt, by calling him and asking exactly what we were doing(cos i was/am tired of stealing kisses with him)

He really had nothing to say and obviously he's just "enjoying" himself. So right now, i need to lose this attraction i have developed for him and it's just painful(sort of anyway)


I'm just tired of getting it wrong with guys, it's just so depressing!!!

Anyway i'm off to my fun and activity packed weekend...

These man matters are really overwhelming!!!

And so another disaster happens!!!!!

I've wondered over the years why i am so so disaster prone...



Truly i need to find a/the reason why.



I mean how do you explain breaking the heel of your shoe on an escalator with your hot new toaster right in front of you? or buying coffee from macdonald's and suffering your poor tongue from the scalding bitter drink, all the while not realising you're supposed to put in sugar and milk yourself????????? Or nearly breaking your ear and head by walking into a window in the full view of your old classmate and her hussie because u're were busy chattering away?????????



Stories for another day



Today's disaster was quite a classic....



I have been invited to a 60th birthday party tonight and being the socialite that I am, i wanted to be decked up to the teeth... so i decided to launch one new hot white skirt i bought aeons ago and never wore....

I left my house feeling "very fine" this morning though i got into my usual frenzy of where is my slippers?, where is my one…

So.....

I really enjoyed this last long weekend, got 2 free unexpected public holidays and i got my much needed rest...


Looked at the resolutions/goals i set for myself at the beginning of this year and i realised i hadn't quite hit the target on them...


Been so so distracted by many things that aren't quite as important and i'm falling into the same trap i've fallen into over the many past years of my adult hood, you know where i lose focus and generally just allow the year(s) pass me by!!!

I need to buckle up truly....

Wish i could find motivation and determination and will power from within

One thing i have kinda achieved this year though is further appreciating my individuality!!
