He is NOT The One!!

Lol, Happy Sunday y'all. I have homework that I truly believe is not in English, which is probably why I can't make head or tails of it so I decided to solve my problem by blogging. Just because we haven't heard or read enough of these, I decided to post this article from Yahoo... Enjoy!

Some people say they "just knew" that they were dating their future spouse. But what about the rest of us? What happens when you're not sure if he's The One? If you're considering long-term commitment or marriage, it's time to ask yourself some tough questions. Below, 10 signs that may indicate he's not for you.

1. You have a list of things he needs to stop doing/saying/wearing if he wants your relationship to work. If you're fixating on his flaws, he's either not the one you want or you're not ready for a serious relationship. Cutting him loose allows you time to grow and gives you the opportunity to meet a guy whose flaws you can embrace -- or at l…

Like Play, Like Play January don finish oh! If you haven't started to get a hold on your year, e go do you like film trick when you start hearing Happy New Year all over again oh!. Hi peoples, hope all is well on your end, it's friday again so here we go:

You know, I have only ever seen Monique's show once and that was to ogle Boris Kodjoe, I am just not a fan. Wendy Williams on the other hand actually has a cool show.

So I was thinking, you know how Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler from Rolling Stone and Aerosmith respectively are still rocking in their old ages. Are there old rappers?(flava flav doesn't count). I just figure that they'd look silly rapping when they are old and wrinkly.

Ok, I totally understand how men could find nagging unattractive. BUT, if Men would take the time to address a situation/try to acknowledge the situation/not dismiss and/or listen we won't have to say it over and over again hence leading to the nagging *sigh*. (I'm so furious a…

Wise Words I Heard

So I am very happy at the moment and it's not because of the three course meal or free alcohol I consumed. I just had a productive night, in which I learned a lot and met people that might be important in the future. I just went for an event hosted by a professional organization that I am a member of and did a lot of networking. There was a guest speaker who spoke and I really enjoyed his speech. He had worked for Yum Brands, Quiznos and currently is the president of Maggiano's Restaurant. His speech was titled, “The Tyranny of Incrementalism”, and the theme of his presentation was “courage”. I took three things out of it and thought I'd share and relate this to my experiences.

1) You have to take big (well thought out) actions to get big change.

We've all heard this before and by now it's like a broken record. You have to take drastic actions if you are looking for drastic results. To stand out from other companies he had to do big things that would put him ahea…

3 posts in one week, meeen na una dey enjoy lol. Anyways, this is early because I have an early day tomorrow, so just wanted to get this out the way before I forget.

I don't have much this week but before I get started I do want to say a big thank you to Baba God in Heaven, my heart is full of gratitude for an answered prayer of mine that I have had for what seems like eternity. All the cliches, I have heard over the years now make sense. It's true what they say, I can only liken it to a pregnant woman who forgets her labor pains once she holds her child in her arms. I don't seem to remember everything that happened the last few years, my heart was so full that I was in my car just crying, for once tears of joy. I tried to pray a prayer of thanksgiving but I could only say thank you over and over. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my friends who have been there for me and who are sharing my joy. I'll stop now.

*end drama queen rant*

Things they did in a year

Hi guys, hope you are having a good week. Hang in there, you are almost halfway done. So I saw this in a magazine and thought I'd share because I thought it was pretty cool. It's a list of different things, different people did in the course of a year and then they wrote a book about it. I'll list the book title and what they did and if you want to buy the book or do what they did, knock yourself out!

Reading the OED - Someone who really likes words read all 20 volumes of the Original English Dictionary.

A devil to play - A man faced his midlife (crisis?) by learning to play the french horn.

The Year of No Money in Tokyo - An American in Japan coped with unemployment in Japan's recession.

Dogged Pursuit - A man trained a dog for a competition.

A Year without Underwear - I don't know why it's called this but after retiring from the Airforce, a colonel biked through 41 countries.

My Jesus Year - An Orthodox Jew tried Christianity.

The Year of Eating Dangerously - A Brit…

I don't even know if you read this or if you'll see this but I can't comment on your blog. Fix it.Thanks.

Hi Guys..I have no blog post.

Should I exit now or just ramble.

I am here I might as well ramble.

I am currently watching the Golden Globes' Red Carpet. Award season is one of the moments I wish I knew a kindred spirit that shared my love for these kind of things. I am here filled with commentary and I can't voice them( I think this is part of why I am mad). Mariah carey is on now, acting a damn frigging fool as usual ( see no cussing, I was gonna not say frigging). I can't stand Mariah.

Had a conversation with God yesterday. I feel positive about it.

Change is good yea?

Love means different things to different people. People express love in different ways. DOn't create your own love life curriculum based on others.

I have low tolerance for BS this year.

This class terrifies me, I can't front.

I wish I was in Nigeria.

Ok I am done, this reads like a friday ran…

Hi Guys...and once again, Friday is here. Like play, like play January is halfway done. Ok before I start I promised a friend I'd speak about the Nigerian Olympic hopeful that is looking for a bone marrow donor, because he is Nigerian his chances are slimmer so if you are interested please register as a donor at https://www.dkmsamericas.org/bone-marrow-donors/become-marrow-donor. For more information please visit Save Seun Adebiyi or his blog. Thank you in advance.

Okay, let's random shall we?:

So, at first I couldn't figure out blogger Moyo and reading her comments left me scratching my head, but now I kinda look forward to her comments especially when she says "ok.thanks.bye" lol. Well today is her birthday and here's wishing her a Super Duper Happy Birthday. *Frigging Young 'Uns*

The other day someone asked me if I had ever wondered that maybe I wasn't wired for love. I disagree with them but you know perception is key. *shrugs* whatever.

Observations of a New Convert

Image
For years I avoided it. For years, they tried to get me to see it. For years, I refused. For years, arguments for it were made to me. For years, I stood my ground and adamantly refused to do it. No, I am not talking about religion and neither am I talking about going natural. Can you guess what I am talking about? [/Barney Stinson\]Wait for it....[/Barney Stinson\]....I am talking about Nollywood Movies!

Omg peoplez, I succumbed due to lack of nothing to watch and watched A BUNCH of Nollywood movies of my own volition. Whether or not I finished them is not the point, point is I sat and watched movies with more than one part, yay me! *does jig*. Granted, I am still picky about them like I won't watch village movies, I only watch movies with certain people, I don't like comedies etc etc but I celebrate my new step (I refuse to acknowledge that it is a phase because now that TV season is back and there are movies to be watched, it's been a week since I watched one)

Anywhoos, fo…

Hi guys. I didn't even realize it was Friday sha. Anyways, glad to be here and glad you are here, before I continue I want to thank everyone for their encouraging comments on my last "Unresolution" post, like Moyo said God will be with me(and all of us) every step of next year. Ok, hia wee gooo:

Watching naija movies reminded me of "nighties"(night gowns). Who remembers them? Back in boarding school, that's all we used to wear all see through and stuff, lol. Now, I don't know if anyone still wears them. Na to throw on old shirts and shorts or pajama tops or if you are like me and old bubu :D

When I was in the workforce, I always used to long for days of being workfree and just straight up bumming and almost always I'd hear, "Nah, you'll get bored". Now I go to school fulltime and this vacation, I straight up did nothing and I don't know what they were talking about sha, I'm not bored. It's nice to rest up mayne. Although I …

2010 - Year of the Unresolution

Not to be redundant or nothing but once again, Happy New Year folks! I don't have any convincing feeling that this year is my year, I am not excited to see what the year has for me but what I am from the bottom of my heart is TRULY, TRULY grateful that I am alive. I mean I know we all say we are happy to be alive but I think I really mean it this new year. There's so much news about death and young people too, that it's quite disconcerting. I mean my friend just told me about someone who updated their FB status on friday and was dead by Sunday. For me, deaths during christmas, new year's eve and beginning of the year always grip me. I just wonder why, when some time ago they were probably excited about seeing another year. May their souls RIP.

Ok, since God sees it fit for me to be alive, I think it's only fair that I try to better my life. I mean, I heard someone say New Year is not a beginning but a continuation, which is true but like a birthday, it's always…

Happy New Year! Friday Randoms

What are the odds that my randoms fell on a new year, eh? hehe..Just kidding. Happy new year my people, I thank God that you are able to read this post and have lived to see yet another year. I wish you many more years ahead. okey dokes, let's do a Blog Post 01 for '10 random:

So for the second year in a row I entered the new year at a club lol. Before you judge me, don't worry I felt bad for just a second but I usually go to church earlier in the evening. On my way to church yesterday I chuckled to myself because the last time I remember entering the new year at a church it was one of the worst years of my life. I don't think there is a corelation it was just a random thought.

I find the men who grunt at the gym so the whole world knows that they are lifting weights amusing.

Speaking of the gym, some of you may remember this. Scroll down to the part about panty lines. Well, panty lines are one of the banes of my existence. In all my years of working out, I have never…
