I am so thankful this thanksgiving. I am thankful for everything. The sorrow, pain, joy and happiness. God has been faithful to me and my family. I really can't take him enough. I am thankful for family, friends, life, health, my blog and my followers. I am mostly grateful to God. Have a merry happy thanksgiving!. Be good for goodness sake :-)

Thank you for all the lovely comments from my last post. I am grateful to you guyz, my family, friends and most especially the most high God. He really has been faithful to me. Still on the job hunt, but I am not bothered because I know something will eventually turn up great. How have you guyz been? Preparing for thanksgiving and black Friday right?
A couple of years ago I was invited for my first birthday dinner in yankee. I don’t know about you guyz, but when someone invites you for a dinner party, are they not suppose to foot the bills? I guess this happens only in Nigeria. The Nigerians in American have their own idea of dinner parties ( yes just Nigerians because I have been to other dinner parties and they foot the bills). Like I said, It was my first birthday dinner. I didn’t think too much about it.
I went there with a friend. I was dressed to impressed, sparks the peeps interest, good convo was all I expect (I just rhymed sha lol) . They were about 25 people there. In my mind I was just thinking, My goodness, this babe has money oh. How can she pay for 25 people? Plus the place looks expensive. Everyone introduced themselves, a little chit chat here and there. The waiter came and I ordered my meal. I actually felt sorry for the celebrants. I was considerate and I ordered something that was not too expensive. Everyone took their time to order, except this one babe sitting across from me. She was the only one who ordered appetizer and the main course. Her accent sef no be here lol, you know those strong ibo accent plus fone lol. ( I am not saying my accent is all that, but still)
The meal came and I couldn’t keep my eyes off the babe across me. She ate the appetizer alone, the main course; she ordered two more side dishes. She ordered two different drinks because the first one did not taste right. Then she ordered dessert. I looked around the table to check if I was the only one seeing this. To my amazement everyone was looking at her, some were even laughing at her ( rude much) .
The waiter came back with the bill and I heard the celebrant say something to him, but I couldn’t hear clearly. Five minutes later, I say the waiter giving everyone their separate bills. I nudged my friend beside me, I was like why are they giving us a separate bill. My friend went on to tell me the Nigerian American idea of dinner party. Even though I was shocked I was thankful I didn’t order much. I was thinking about the celebrant not knowing I will be the one paying eventually (it’s good to be good for goodness sake lol) . I looked at the girl across from me enjoying her appetizer. I saw the waiter give her the bill. She didn’t even look at it, she continued with her meal. A while later everyone was paying their individual bill. She was the only one left now. One of the girls that were laughing at her told her, “Hope you know you are the one paying”. Her food stopped midway and her eyes popped out. She was like eh! … I still don’t know how I held myself from laughing. It was just too funny. She looked at the bill for the first time. She was looking at the bill like she was about to take a major exam. I thought she was going to cry… lol. She pushed the desert away like it was bitter leaf. She checked her bag for like 15 minutes. Like me, this was her first dinner party as well. She had no idea she was the one footing her own bill. She was still checking her bag when one of the guys there opted to pay for her. She was like God bless you oh, God bless you, I didn’t know oh…
I am sure the next day she goes for a dinner party, she will order water and salad lol. What goes around comes back around ( sometimes to bite you in the butt lol). Have a wonderful thanksgiving break people!

I know you hear this all the time, but God is really wonderful. I am listening to " how great is our God" as I type this. I prayed an aggressive prayer with God, yes you heard me right. I said aggressive lol. When I really wanted something from my dad at a tender age, I got a little bit aggressive. Can you imagine a 6 or 7year old being aggressive lol ( just a little bit though). My point is that God is the only father I have now and I really wanted things to turn around ( i don tire small na, it wasn't easy oh) I prayed and whined to God. I remember when I was praying, I was listening to the same song " how great is our God" . I was like God I know you are great, but you have to proof to me, show me again.
Fews weeks later, things turned around. I passed my boards, ( I SAID I PASSED MY BOARD EXAM, in case you missed that lol) i have a couple of job interviews, I reconnected with one of my aunts I haven't spoken to in ages. One of my favorite brothers might be coming to Yankee this year ( well they are all my favorite this days lol) . Oh God is good sha like really. R. Kelly wasn't joking when he said "Prayer changes things"
Took me a while, but I am finally here. I just want to testify and make it crystal clear...... I ain't good enough, but he still loves me. I ain't no superstar, spotlight ain't shining on me....
Everything happens for a reason. Whatever you are going through today. Stop complaining like a little kid, get down on your knees and talk to God. After all he is your father, talk to him like you would talk to your father on earth. It might not go as you want it, but God is mysterious like that lol ( he has a sense of humor ). He knows what he is doing
Happy new month
We should pray for things that stretch our goals. Pray bold prayers, ask for big things. Do not sell yourself short. God has unlimited resources- Joel Osteen

Hello loves. How have you guyz been? Hope you guys are good. I know my last post was really sad, but I am feeling a bit better now. At that moment I felt like that Green day’s song , “wake me up when September ends”.
Summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends
as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends
I guess I am awake now lol, but on the real though I am feeling better. As long as I am still breathing and my heart is still beating, I have a purpose on this earth abi. Anyways my mum emailed me this story and it made me feel even better, so I decided it to share. It may be meaningful to you as it was to me.
Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, 'Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty.'
Then the second tree said, 'Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take Kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull.'
Finally the third tree said, 'I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest Tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me.'
After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, 'This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter, 'and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.
At the second tree the woodsman said, 'This looks like a strong tree. I should be able to sell it to the shipyard.' The second tree was happy Because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.
When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the woodsmen said, 'I don't need anything special from my tree, I'll take this one,' and he cut it down.
When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not at all what he had prayed for.
The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end.
The third tree was cut into large pieces, and left alone in the dark.
The years went by, and the trees forgot about their dreams.
Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time.
Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One of them was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the tree didn't think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and He stood and said 'Peace' and the storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of Kings in its boat.
Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and be as close to God as was possible, because Jesus had been crucified on it.
The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going your way, always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him, God will give you great gifts.
Each of the trees got what they wanted, just not in the way they had imagined.
We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His Ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.
Did I hear an Amen! .
Let me use this opportunity to thank some of the people who reached out to me. Caramel D thanks for the warm and kind messages on twitter. Thanks for calling me seye, you have always been a good friend. 9ja great thanks for always checking on me, you no get part 2 lol.

Hey everyone. I know it’s been a while. How have you guyz been? I missed you guys. I promised myself that the next time I come here; I will blog about my grandma. She has been around for a while and I truly enjoyed their company, but I have not been a happy camper.
First half of this year was wonderful. I was overfilled with joy and happiness. My siblings either finished school, or got a job or got a promotion. Nothing could go wrong. My brother’s wife delivered a handsome baby boy. My first nephew ever, I was hoping for a girl, but oh well. To top it off I even graduated from nursing school. I was really grateful and thankful for God’s blessings to my family.
Second half of the year was shockingly different. First of all I lost a close friend. I did not believe he was dead until I saw his lifeless body during his funeral. I could not sleep at night or concentrate during the day. All I could think about was his lifeless body. My twin warned me to not look at the body, but did I listen? It took me about 3 weeks before I could have a good night sleep. It was a terrible period. I kept in touch with his family and I was glad to find out there were doing much better. I still pray for his family from time to time. My mum and my grandma were supported. I found a reason to smile again. A month later, after this incident, I got a call from my uncle in Nigeria. He told me my aunt passed away that morning. My aunt that I spoke to two days ago! . I even joked about bringing her to the states this December. Less than two months, another big blow in the stomach. It affected my grandma so much. My mum tried to be strong for both of us, but sometimes I feel her breaking down. I didn’t tell my friends. I just carried on like there was no problem in the world, yet I was weak inside.
I know it’s unhealthy to keep my emotions bottled up, but I can’t help it. I grew up with a lot of boys and they hardly show their emotions. I guess that is one of the bad habits I picked up from them. Blogger is one of the few places I can really let things out. I am still trying to get over my aunts death and put myself together. Then recently in the mail, I got the result of my test. I failed the test. The test I have been preparing for. I know they say I can still take the test again this year, but really I failed. I am still in shock because I prepared for it and I even prayed about it on several occasions. To top it off, I didn’t get the job I applied for a while ago.
At this point, I think I am almost completely shut down. I am emotionally drained, mentally weak and physically exhausted. However, I am still spiritually hopeful. The last time I got this low was when I lost my dad. I was powerless and prayed everyday for a couple of weeks that I die in my sleep. The difference between then and now is that I may be depressed and feeling really down, but I am not praying for death. I am hopeful and praying for a brighter day. It may seem really dark now, but I know there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I just hope this pain will stop before the end of this year. I may not know why all these things are happening right now, but I am a strong believer of the phrase, “everything happens for a reason”. Just remember me in your prayers. I hope next time I come here, I will be in a better mood : ). They say in every situation you find yourself, gives thanks to the lord. Thank you lord.
Congratulations to Sirius for the newest member of their family and Gee on her recent engagement. Nice anon we are going to miss you around this spot : )

So I have been trying to study all day and it’s not going as I planned. I am suppose to do about 300 questions daily till I write my boards, but I have done only 50 throughout the day. I don’t know jor I am so lazy these dayz. I think someone did voodoo on me the way Cleveland fans did voodoo on Lebron James lol. On the real though I am just blah…. I need motivation and more prayers lol. ( one can never pray enough you know).
I just got off the phone with my cousin, remember the one who graduated recently when I almost died on the plane back ( Thank God for my life). I love that boy mehh he is like my little brother. I am just so proud of him. We were talking about his babe ( she is white) and how his mum cannot really accept her. I feel bad for him because the girl is really nice. She is polite and very matured for her age. Did I tell you guyz she was even dancing to Gbono feli feli on my cousin’s grad party with her lirru waist lol. I mean is there anything really wrong with dating someone who is different from you. Nigerian parents carry it on their head like it’s a taboo or something. When I was younger I used to tell my dad that I will marry a white man just to make him angry ( after he annoys me lol). And he goes I will disown you if you do that. I mean common, my dad did not even marry a Nigerian so what was he yarning sef . Nigerian parents need to chill and let their children live their life. Abi what do you guyz think? ( don’t use style to insult me oh, it’s only opinions I asked for #justsaying lol) .
Meanwhile the ongoing story of my dreamful life ( Like my life does not have enough drama). I have been sorta of ignoring my friend’s call ( Lance’s fiancé ). Let’s call her Regina, so regina has been calling me and I have been painfully-conveniently-not-so- intentionally avoiding her calls. It’s not as easy as I thought. I was at her place the other day and she told me to say hi to Lance while she spoke to her friend on the other line. I was like no don’t worry I am good. She was like why, he asks about you once in a while just say hi
.Then I was like that is it! Regina, I need to get this out of my chest ( Like Usher, I had a confession moment, these are my confessions… ). Here goes nothing. I used to talk to lance a while ago and I think I still have something for him and I think he feels the same way too and she was like what? . You and my Lance? I thought you were my friend. How can you stand in front of me and tell me you like…….
Pause! Rewind and Play back
Of course I didn’t tell her that. Do I look like I am smoking something or i am related to Bobby Brown ( wetin concern bobby brown na, sometimes I say the weirdest thing lol) . All these were playing in my head when she told me to say hi to lance. I said hi and the conversation felt awkward mehh. I spoke very fast and gave the phone back to regina. I told her I needed to step outside for a while. I don’t know jare, I think I am kinda-sorta- 15% sure that there is something there and 85% sure that its all in my head ( not like Jason derulo’s song though lol). Let this wedding come and go biko lol. Mid life crises can’t be worse than this. I will be okay. Like someone said, all I need to do is swallow the little feelings I have and drink it with a tall glass of water shikena!. I mean compare 15% and 85%, if you do the math there should be nothing there. I will be okay, you will see. * fingers crossed while reciting the lord’s prayer* . I got this. Thanks for the advice from my last post, I really appreciate your considerations. You guyz wuv me sha, I know you do cos I wuv you plenty plenty.
Lemme go chill with some of my peeps jare since book refuse to enter today. Have a lovely week ahead and happy new month : ) . Congrats to the nominees of NBA.
A man walks up to a woman in his office each day, stands very close to her, draws in a large breath of air and tells her that her hair smells nice.
After a week of this, she can't stand it any longer, and goes to Human Resources.
Without identifying the guy, she tells them what the coworker does, and that she wants to file a sexual harassment suit against him.
The HR supervisor is puzzled by this approach, and asks, "What is sexually threatening about a coworker telling you your hair smells nice?
The woman replies, "It's Keith...... The midget."
Man's wife asks him to go to the store to buy some cigarettes. So he walks down to the store only to find it closed. So he goes into a nearby bar to use the vending machine. At the bar he sees a beautiful woman and starts talking to her. They have a couple of beers and one thing leads to another and they end up in her apartment. After they've had their fun, he realizes its 3AM and says, "Oh no, its so late, my wife's going to kill me. Have you got any talcum powder?" She gives him some talcum powder, which he proceeds to rub on his hands and then he goes home.
His wife is waiting for him in the doorway and she is pretty pissed. "Where the hell have you been?!?!"
"Well, honey, its like this. I went to the store like you asked, but they were closed. So I went to the bar to use the vending machine. I saw this great looking chick there and we had a few drinks and one thing led to another and I ended up in bed with her."
"Oh yeah? Let me see your hands!"
She sees his hands are covered with powder and... "You God damn liar!!! You went bowling again!!!"

I met him through my friend at another friend’s get together. He was easy on the eye. He reminded me of lance gross, but a slightly lighter version. I noticed him a few times and I think he noticed me as well ( Maybe in my head). I asked a couple of my friends who he was. None of them seem to know him. He wasn’t from these parts. I guess that was why he seemed so different from the rest. He was by himself through out. I was going to say hi, but I was like if the guy is feeling me he would say hi na. Plus I can be unnecessarily shy sometimes ( a shocker abi? Who would have thought moi shy)? After a while I was like abeg jor. It’s not that serious.( even though dude was seriously foine lol) I was like let me enjoy myself in the parry jare. If it was meant to be it will be
I was about to leave and I saw one of my friends( lemme call him Nonso) I haven’t seen in a long time. When I just came into the country, he was one of the guys that showed me around. He was one of my few male friends that just liked me as a friend ( not trying to take it to the next level). Although, he used to tell his mum that I am her future daughter-in-law lol ( Another story for another day). Anyways so i was catching up with my old pal and like a day time soap opera, Nonso happened to know him ( lemme call him Lance). He stood close to Nonso, not saying anything. I didn’t know if he was staring at me or someone else because he had his shades on. I turned back to Nonso, but I couldn’t understand what Nonso was telling me again. I knew he was talking, I saw his lips moving and I couldn’t comprehend if he was speaking English again lol. He sounded like those chopped and screwed songs. ( With lance standing there like on Hulk Hogan, how can I concentrate). I couldn’t take it any longer and I said hi to Lance. He turned towards me as if he was seeing for the first time and said hello back and he goes I saw you checking me out. I was like huh (this dude must be feeling himself oh). He said has only kidding. Nonso introduced us to each other. Told me lance was from another state, he just came in a few days ago to see his uncle who lives here.
I spoke to Lance for another 20 minutes and we exchanged numbers afterwards. He called me that night and we spoke for a couple of hours. He was not just funny and cute, he was also a serious Christian ( just day 1, so far so good). After that he called me every day. I grew to really like him, till I lost my phone or I think someone stole it ( you see devil). It took me a few weeks to get a new phone, but when I eventually did, I couldn’t get the numbers from my old phone. Strange because when I changed my phone the last time I got all my contacts and text messages. ( see what I am talking about, bad belle). I couldn’t get in touch with him or Nonso ( when nonso was giving me his new number at the get together, I was temporarily deaf oh) . Lance didn’t call me again.
That was almost 13 months ago. Fast forward to a few weeks ago before my graduation. A friend of mine was telling about her new boyfriend. I can’t remember if I asked her or she was just telling me. Anyways she told me I will meet him soon. Shey I said my life is some sort of a day time soap opera . Of course it was lance na. From all the guys she should have introduced me to. It just has to be lance. He was very friendly though. He treated me like an old friend and told the babe that he met me last year at a function ( he spared her the rest of the details sha lol) When we were alone, he asked me what happened. He said he taught we liked each other and all of sudden I stopped calling him. My phone was constantly turned off. He said he tried again a couple of days later and he afterwards he decided to let it go. I told him how I lost my phone and contacts and how I even tried to get in touch with Nonso, but to no avail. I was still explaining when my friend came in. I didn’t talk to him afterwards, the few times I saw him we said hi to each other and that was it. There was no use complicating things. Meanwhile my friend talks about him 24/7. I didn’t mind before, but now that I know it was lance. I wish she could take a 5 minutes break once in a while ( My goodness)
On graduation day, I saw him and he congratulated me. I told him I was really happy for him and my friend ( I honestly was happy for them though). I told him I wish them all the best. Fast forward to a couple of days later. She is engaged and she wants me to be in her bridal train. Wahala dey lol. I am happy for them, but why did she have to put me inside bridal train now. Lord help me, I need to be constantly reciting the lord’s prayer and emphases the “deliver us from evil and leads us not into temptation* . People pray for me oh. I was telling a friend of mine this story a few days ago and I was like I guess it wasn’t meant to be and she goes, “ you think” lol. What helpful friends I got right lol. Meanwhile my grandma is still coming this month oh. Shey if I was the one getting married she would let me be. I am still studying for my board exam. Seems like I need a lot of prayers this period lol. Have a nice one people. Thanks for all the congratulatory comments. Love y’all .
Defense Attorney: Will you please state your age?
Little Old Lady: I am 86 years old.
Defense Attorney: Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April 1st?
Little Old Lady: There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm spring evening, when a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.
Defense Attorney: Did you know him?
Little Old Lady: No, but he sure was friendly.
Defense Attorney: What happened after he sat down?
Little Old Lady: He started to rub my thigh.
Defense Attorney: Did you stop him?
Little Old Lady: No, I didn't stop him.
Defense Attorney: Why not?
Little Old Lady: It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years ago.
Defense Attorney: What happened next?
Little Old Lady: He began to rub my breasts.
Defense Attorney : Did you stop him then?
Little Old Lady: No, I did not stop him.
Defense Attorney: Why not?
Little Old Lady: His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven't felt that good in years!
Defense Attorney: What happened next?
Little Old Lady: Well, by then, I was feeling so "spicy" that I just laid down and told him "Take me, young man. Take me now!"
Defense Attorney: Did he take you?
Little Old Lady: Hell, no! He just yelled, "April Fools!" And that's when I shot him, the little bastard.

Hello beautiful people. I know it has been a while. I love you (hope am forgiven), I know you love me too : ) Yes you do, there is no use denying it lol . This time it was for a good reason no bull. Gosh I have been so busy and this time it really paid off. Your gurl graduated yo yes oh. You are now talking to an American nurse ( not the Nigerian movie, this is for reals ). I got my BSN, all I have to do is to pass my boards like neato will say shikena (levels don change now, dey no fit hold me again now I’m 10/10… shikena, shikena, shikena oh lol ). Wait does that not have a nice ring to it. My name is BSNC and I got a BSN (nor be God, I am on some oleku stuff, feeling myself lol). On the real though Thank you Jesus, you have been wonderful to be. I will say it again I may not have a father on Earth, but I definitely have an almighty Father in Heaven.
I graduated, my cousin graduated, my brother graduated, my other brother is officially a doctor, the last born is soon to be an Engineer and I am expecting my first niece/nephew ( hoping it’s a girl) in a couple of month. I got stopped by a state trooper on my way out of state because I was doing 98 on a 55mph. Instead of giving me a 200 fine and 2 points like they normally do, he just gave me a 50 fine. First time I got stopped by the police. I almost passed out lol. You can’t tell me this family is not blessed. I am so grateful to God almighty. He promised he will never fail me and he has kept his promise.
Where are my manners? Happy new month people, may God bless you and your family as much as he has blessed mine. All you have to do is have faith and believe. ( I don turn pastor for the matter lol). So what have you guyz been up? What have I missed? Did any blogger hook up, did someone win the lottery? Did anyone miss me *ahem* .
Since I got out of school I have been traveling around. Went on a mini vacation, enjoyed the beach even though the sun almost grilled me, went to visit some friends out of state, and went for my cousins’ graduation out of state. I just got back a couple of days ago. I have to start studying for my board exams, its not by shikena lol.
I have a lot to thank God for. I almost died on my trip to my cousins’ graduation. It was during the period they had that tornado in Missouri. The plane was shaking so fast, drinks were pouring on the floor. I looked out the window and all I saw was black thick clouds with lightening. I was praying and singing songs of praise. In my mind I was like if I die, I already have a degree (who thinks like that lol). It was the most frightening experiences of my life. I don’t know how we pushed through it, but I will tell you for sure that God was in control of that plane. I was just imagining if one of my brother’s that is scared of flying was on that plane. Dude will either pass out or shit on his pants, no kidding lol. In other news my grandma is coming in a few weeks, the one that is steady on my case about get married. Lord I need you.
Have a wonderful month people. God bless you. Lemme go eat some BBQ chicken my brother is making downstairs. I would tell you to join me, but you guyz are far away lol .
P.S : Thank you 9 ja great, Myne, GNG, FlyHigh, Caramel, kitkat, Nikko sho and 2cute4u for checking on me. I appreciate you guyz for that. mwah. Kitkat I saw your pic on twitter, you are one hot omoge oh lol
I have 2 dogs & I was buying a large bag of Pal at Big W and standing inline at the check out.
A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Pal Diet again although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Pal nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.
I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.
Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; it was because I'd been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me.
I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.
Stupid lady..why else would I buy dog food??
( Talk about sarcasm)
A new supermarket opened near my house. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you approach the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and experience the scent of fresh hay.
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The veggie department features the smell of fresh buttered corn.
I don't buy toilet paper there any more.

Hey honey bunches. How have you guyz been? Missed you guys oh. It’s been a busy month. Talk about marching all over me. Awww you guyz are so sweet. Thanks I actually finished the paper later on that day. She gave me a B, I thought I failed or something. I think I was typing that paper with one eye open lol. I barely slept the past few weeks; I finally slept for 15 hours straight yesterday. I know I was knocked out alright.
I got two lovely awards from three amazing bloggers. I got two “One lovely blog awards” from 9ja-Great and Pretty lashes and another award “The irresistible sweet blog award” from the one and only blessing. Thanks for the awards coconut candies lol
The first award is 7 facts about me.
• I love babies. I love hugging them, holding them, playing with them. I love their scent, smile, laugh and baby babble. My mum said when I was four; I was the only one who made my cousin stop crying when my aunt and her husband were almost going insane. I got the magic in me, I got the magic baby lol ( love that song). I got the magic touch.
• It seems most of the artist I really like have some controversy attached to them. Like I love R. Kelly and they say he loves the younglings. I love Kanye West; we all know he can be arrogant lol. I love Alicia keys; she was allegedly going out with someone’s husband….. I think they are brilliant in what they do though. Am I right or am I right?
• I love meeting people from different cultural backgrounds. Since I can remember i have always loved learning about other cultures. I have this group of friends I study with. My brother calls them my colorful friends. They are seven of us; myself, the Portuguese chic, the Filipino, the Ghanaian, the sierra Leonean, the Ibo, the Indian and the Kenyan guy. We may be so different, but when I get to really know them I realize that we are still the same. I love it when we go to each other’s houses to study because I get to eat their delicacy. They enjoy coming to my house because they can’t enough of my jollof rice. I try lol.
• I enjoy watching old classical movies and listening to old music some times. It makes you appreciate how technology has improved; the picture qualities and sound system. The other day I was listening to ABBA’s “dancing queen” and singing out loud. My brother came into the room and he was like what is wrong with you? Lol. Then I played “lady in red” by Chris de burgh and my brother just walked away…lol. I love that song though; I can never get tired of listening to that song. It inspired my blog profile picture.
• I enjoy watching scary movie. I know it’s weird, but I just want to see how scared I can become. Most of the time, the movies are not scary, just a bit disgusting.
• I can be shy and reserved. I can also be animated and very mischievous. It depends on how I perceived you.
• I love playing games with my brothers and my male friends. I enjoy trashing them and seeing the look in the eyes. You know the I-can’t-believe--this-girl-can-play-games-and-trash-me-in-the-process-look. It makes me feel so empowered…lol. Ask Sirius she knows how it feels, she is my game buddy.
The second award is my 5 guilty pleasures.
• I love strawberry. Strawberry cake, strawberry ice cream, strawberry fruits, strawberry shake. Anything strawberry.
• Some actors I can never get tired of; Robert de Niro, Bruce Willis, Mark Walberg, Ben Stiller, Will Smith and of course my personal favorite RMD- Richard Mofe Damijo.
• I think kitkat is one of my favorite chocolate. It’s just so delightful.
• I enjoy listening to inspirational songs. I think “if you’re not the one” by Daniel Bedingfield is one of the most beautiful song out there.
• I love surprising people. Most people think I am this quiet, reserved chic. When they get to know me they are like wow you know this, you do that, you have done that…lol. It is amusing.
I am supposed to be on spring break more like no break. I had just a day break and now I have to go to PA for a conference tomorrom. I will check if Scranton, Dunder Mifflin paper company is there and say hello to Michael, Dwight, Jim and Pam..lol. yes I am a fan of “the office”. I will make my blog rounds soon : )
Barry returned from a doctor's visit one day and told his wife Carolyn that the doctor said he only had 24 hours to live.
Wiping away her tears, he asked her to make love with him. Of course she agreed and they made passionate love.
Six hours later, Barry went to her again, and said, "Honey, now I only have 18 hours left to live. Maybe we could make love again?" Carolyn agreed and again they made love.
Later, Barry was getting into bed when he realized he now had only eight hours of life left. He touched Carolyn's shoulder and said, "Honey? Please? Just one more time before I die." She agreed, then afterward she rolled over and fell asleep.
Barry, however, heard the clock ticking in his head, and he tossed and turned until he was down to only four more hours.
He tapped his wife on the shoulder to wake her up. "Honey, I only have four hours left! Could we...?"
His wife sat up abruptly, turned to him and said, "Listen Barry, I'm not being funny ..but I have to get up in the morning and you don't!."
I will seek and find You . . I shall take you to bed and have my way with you.
I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.
I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.
I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.
And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.
All my love,
Now, get your mind out of the gutter and Go get your flu shot!

Anywho how have you all been? I missed you guyz oh. I really do. Hope the feeling is mutual *crickets* . It’s all good I still missed you guyz anyways. Yes welcome to the month of March. Hope we will march forward this month. I have 17 birthdays coming up this month from my family and friends. It’s a full month indeed. I need to budget for all the cards and presents I am going to buy this month or I can just move to another town.. no? . I don’t know if it’s just me or is it because it’s a new month, but people are surprisingly nice to me. People are naturally nice to me, but these particular ones barely give me the time of day. I don’t get it. As in teachers, colleagues, even my mum..lol ( long story). I am not complaining or anything it’s just weird. I like it though maybe God knows I deserve a break. Thank you lol
My blog will be two this month. I can’t believe my baby has grown so fast. How times flies. I am so proud of him (my blog, yea yea it’s a He. Deal with it lol). I remember when I started blogging, it seemed like a marriage and we were in the honeymoon stage. I was so into my blog. It’s the first thing I check in the morning and the last thing I check at night. I go to bed typing my next post in my head, dreaming about bloggers I have never met or seen. I was so anxious to be first on people’s blog and waiting to see who would be first on mine. Blogger was like a community, a whole different world on his own( like a new planet or something) with this online family you want to explore. I want to read more post and learn more about these individuals. I had a few crushes (well E- crush lol). I even found out that some of them had a crush on me too. Of course I was flattered. Then slowly and surely most of my favorite blogs disappeared. They just woke up one morning and decide to quit their blogs or they stopped updating. While others promise they will update soon. Soon turned from days, to weeks, to month and now years. I don’t blame most of them though blogger has changed a little. A lot of the bloggers changed and I blame twitter for that. Twitter took out the mystery from blogsville. 60% of the bloggers who no longer update their blogs are on twitter. I had to go to twitter myself to see what all the fuss was about. It was okay I guess at least I got to mingle with the bloggers again. I am hardly there these dayz though. I realize anytime I go there my anonymity slowly slips away. I love my anonymity,It gives me the freedom to write whatever I like. Although my brother calls me brownskinchic sometimes, hyena lol. Yea he found out somehow. I guess he was wondering why I was always smiling to my laptop..lol. Just to check if his sis is still sane. I went downstairs one day and he was like brownskinchic how far. I was like what.. he said it again, I acted like I didn’t know what he was talking about, but it got old and he told me how he found out. Guys can be so aprokoish sometimes…lol . I mean I love you and all, but a girl needs her privacy jor. Anyways back to twitter. I think most if not all the bloggers have their pictures up now. It was so bad I woke up one morning and put mine up too for like 2 minutes and I was like what am I doing? Lol. Then I took it out immediately, a few people saw it though. As a result I have one new crush, so it wasn’t all bad.
Wow my blog is actually two years old sha. I am so grateful for everyone who has ever commented on my blogs, my followers, the departed bloggers who I miss so much (hope you guyz are doing well in your individual lives), the friends I have made through bloggers, facebook and even twitter sef ( well I had to give them a little credit), the new and old bloggers who found their way to my blog (glad you did). I hope I rekindle my love for blogger like before. I still love blogger don’t get me wrong, but these dayz I feel I have change as a writer. Well they say change is the only constant thing in the world, we just hope we change for the better. I would have written a long list of names like I did for my 50th post, but that got me into trouble because even from the 200+ names I listed, I still manage to leave some names out..lol. Thanks blogger for giving me a place of solitude and thanks to the bloggers who left me smiling, dreaming, laughing out loud, confused, happy, sad, hopeful, teary-eyed, knowledgeable, inspired, infatuated, curious, excited and most importantly reminding to be thankful to God.
I heart you guyz. I honestly do. All the best this month. Hope to see you guys soon or in the month of my birth (April) and no my name is not avril..lol
She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.
She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.
Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house... and left it there all night
A friend asked a gentleman how it is that he never married.
Replied the gentleman, "Well, I guess I just never met the right woman ... I guess I've been looking for the perfect girl."
"Oh, come on now," said the friend, "Surely you have met at least on girl that you wanted to marry."
"Yes, there was one girl once. I guess she was the one perfect girl, the only perfect girl I really ever met. She was just the right everything. I really mean that she was the perfect girl for me."
"Well, why didn't you marry her," asked the friend.
"She was looking for the perfect man," he said.

Hey lovely people. I can’t believe I am updating again so soon. I feel so happy today and no I am not bi-polar or anything. I know some of you would be like where you not the one that was upset yesterday. Well I feel better now ( do you have a problem with that? Lol) Ignore me jor. I did tell you guyz to give me a minute and I will feel better. Here I am feeling better. No my brother did not buy me a new I touch. I asked him indirectly several times and he gives me this look like I said Michael Jackson was downstairs. I don’t like disturbing people; I will just let him be. I have my pride too. I have a big ego as big as my cousin’s head. Gosh that boy has a huge head sha . Love him to pieces though, but whoa lol. I hope he outgrows it or grow into it rather. ( my uncle used to laugh at kids who had big head. Be careful who you laugh at…) The reason I am so merrily happy is that I am alive, is that not a big enough reason. Well that too, but the real reason is that wait for it…. Wait for it….
I am going to be an aunt!!! *now doing the dougie dance* Nah not really lol I leave the dancing for my cousin.
My brother is expecting, wait that did not come out right lol. My brother’s wife is expecting. Oh my goodness I am going to spoil that girl (that is me hoping it’s a girl). I want a baby girl because 80% of my cousins are boys, too much testosterone in the family. I am going to do her hair and stuff, take her out to show her off. She is going to be just as cute as me lol. I am going be the good aunt and my sister well...lol. Of course just as lovely. This is the news I needed to hear from all the nonsense that have been trying to mess this month for me. I am now feeling the valentine love. Finally this news will get my grandma out of my hair. She was expecting me to give her, her first great grandchild. I know it amazes me too considering that i have older brothers and my sister is the older one ( well two minutes give or take, still). I think it’s going to be a summer or spring baby. All that matters I am going to be an aunt pretty soon.
In case you are wondering how i came up with the title. Its from Mr. West song. Nothing ever promise tomorrow today. Yesterday i was really feel down, but i am the happiest soon to be aunty now. Isn't God just amazing, he always finds a way to put a smile on my face. What more can i say, thank you lord. Like them P-square would say " tell me who made it possible". Only God oh.
P.S: All of you who wished i had a better week from my previous post thanks alot because your wishes came through. You guyz are amazing seriously : )
An old Italian Mafia Don is dying and he called his grandson to his bed. "Grandson I wanna you lisin to me. I want for you to take my chrome plated 38 revolver so you will always remember me."

"You lisina to me, soma day you goin a be runna da bussiness, you goina have a beautiful wife, lotsa money, a big home and maybe a couple of bambino."
"Soma day you goina coma home and maybe finda you wife in bed with another man. What do you do than? Point to your watch and say TIMES UP?"
A man walks up to a woman in his office and tells her that her hair smells nice.
The woman immediately goes into her supervisor's office and tells him that she wants to file a sexual harassment suit and explains why.
The supervisor is puzzled by this time and says, "What's wrong with the co-worker telling you your hair smells nice?"
The woman replies, "He's a midget

Hello everybody. How has your week been so far? Unlike mine, hope yours was great. I thought it was supposed to be a love month. This week has not been good to me. I started it by having a disagreement with one of my close friends. I still do not know what the argument was about. Anytime he has a problem with his babe, he takes it out on the first person he talks to. Guess who that person was lol. He will be okay. I am praying for him.
I went to school the other day. I had this exam I wasn’t really ready for, but I just saw my grade. I did pretty well. Anyways I came home and I felt odd. There was something off, but I couldn’t place it. I had lunch, watched an episode of “the office” and I was about to hit my books again when I had that odd feeling again. Then it dawned on me, my I touch (my baby) was missing. I frantically emptied my bag, checked my room, my car.. I even drove back to school. Nothing, it was gone. I called someone who was in the class I was reading at. She told me someone saw the I touch and they left in on the teacher’s desk. I got back home late at night. There was nothing I could do. I had to wait till the next day. At least I was hopeful.
The next as early as 7, met with the professor. This lady said she actually left the I touch in the class. Who does that though when someone clearly stated that it was a missing item?. I have a feeling she took it, but why? I have a lot of videos, pictures and apps. It was painful sha. To top it all, I came home to find out I got a speeding ticket. Like really, am i on a prank show or something. I am trying to get my brother to buy me a new one, but the guy is just being unnecessarily stubborn. Is not like I didn’t ask nicely. Oh well its gone, I will be okay I just need a minute( see why i don't like getting too attached to things). I called VSNC, God bless her heart, she really cheered me up. She talked to me for a while and gave me some links to this radio show she listens to, it was amusing to me. If you want to have a good laugh. check it out.
Happy Valentine day in advance people. I Hope the month gets better : (
A lady walked into a Lexus dealership just to browse. Suddenly, she spotted the most beautiful car that she had ever seen, and walked over to inspect it. As she bent forward to feel the fine leather upholstery, an unexpected little fart escaped.
Embarrassed, she anxiously looked around to see if anyone had noticed and hoped a sales person didn't pop up right now. But, as she turned back, there, standing next to her, was a salesman.
With a pleasant smile he greeted her, "Good day, Madame. How may we help you today?"
Trying to maintain an air of sophistication and acting as though nothing had happened, she smiled back and asked, "Sir, what is the price of this lovely vehicle?"
Still smiling pleasantly, he replied, "Madame, I'm very sorry to say that if you farted simply from touching the vehicle, you are going to sh*t when you hear the price."
P.S: Thanks alot GNG for cheering me up. You are such a sweetheart : ).
P.SS: H see i updated : )

Hey everybody. Happy new month, it’s the month of …. Yea that. So how have you guyz been? Thanks a lot for the comments from my last post, you guyz are so sweet. Glad to share a little about myself. I can’t believe some of you still do not know I have a twin sister. I say it every single time like really every time. Anyways like I have said a thousand times ( yes miss natural and jaycee lol) I have a twin sister. I call her VSNC (vanilla skin…) because she is light skinned and vanilla ish and I am brown skinned and yummy ish lol.
When my professor told me this semester was going to be stressful. She wasn’t playing at all. I am taking 4 classes plus two clinical ( almost 17 abi is it 18 credit). This Monday she told us if we were having a good night sleep, it means we were on the wrong profession ( we go turn vampire overnight for the matter na shebi). I am so tired. I am slowing losing my friends. They used to be understanding, but its seem they are tired of me ( I no blame them jor. I tire for myself too). They are complaining that I don’t call them or go out like I used to. The other day one of them was complaining and calling me all sort of name. See me see wahala on top the stress I am in right in. ( my mama never cause me like that sef, biko shift oh ) Abeg I can’t ahn ahn do I look like her boyfriend. Shuoo is it because I am quiet. I don’t like wahala for anything. If I see wahala coming my way I would run like I was training for a marathon.
If I tell VSNC she will be laughing at me. The babe do not have female friends per say. It took her a while to tolerate females, but with my help she finally accepted them ( very strange somebody this my darling sis ). She used to call me the queen of friendships. When I was younger, to overcome my shyness I used to make it my mission to be friends or just talk to everyone in my class ( my mate dey go school go read ). Then I got to college and this one boy refused to talk to me. I frustrated him till we became good friends ( I can be annoying like that in a good way though) I found out two weeks later that he was a cultist ( who send me message abi). Funny enough he didn’t threaten me or anything like the stories my brothers used to tell me about them. He was strangely cool and cute too (hehe yes he was). A couple of months later he asked me out. I had to make up this story that I was going out with my family friends. I made the dude( family friend) follow me wherever I go. Not that I was scared of the cultist guy or anything, but my brothers told me to not talk to or encourage any cultist. I made my family friend follow me for the first 3 months until I never saw the cultist guy again ( I hope he didn’t die or something). Come to think of it most of the cute boys I was checking out then did not approach me thanks to my family friend. (There goes my chance of having cute babies ). That was the closest cultist friend I ever had. Wait that was the only cultist friend I had. Where am I going with this story ( no idea).
I was talking about VSNC right . At a point when I was growing up, I used to think I was the only girl in the house. Then we both grew up and had boobies, so I knew we were definitely babes’ lol. Anyways like I was saying, my friends are mad at me and I am tired of apologizing. It’s not like I am staying busy on purpose. Jay Z couldn’t say it any better “ it’s a hard knock life” , but like Joe said in “better dayz” – there will be better days ( where is joe anyways. I miss his music. I miss the old r &b. good thing I have john legend for backup).
I just finish typing a 15 page paper that I thought was due next week. It was due 12am today. I still don’t know how I did it or what I wrote. (God help me). I was going to blog about something, but now that I am here I can’t seem to remember I just know that I want to blog. Ehen did I tell you guyz there is another pale in my class (remember that old shameless chief from my old post that would not leave me alone). Well this one is not that old sha let me call him a pre-pale( at least he is not married ). This guy has been seriously annoying me though. This semester I am in class with some very strange people. At least I can tolerate most of them. Not this dude though. How can someone (pre-pale) just come to someone’s face and ask silly questions, like who does he think he is or is it because he has a big chest that is almost ripping up his shirt.( not that I send or anything just observations. The guy buff sha ) Na so the interrogation start oh … How come I am just noticing you this semester? ( cos I have never taken a class with you hyena). How come you never say hi to me. ( is it not obvious that I can’t you). Are you sure you are not from the island? (do you see me speaking ratafarian). He went on to tell me how I look like one of his old girlfriends in the island ( I dunno if that na insult or compliment). Pre-pale is from Trinidad ( I love his accent though) and he said he would have sworn I was from the island. Have you seen when someone wants you to be from another country by force? I said I am Nigerian shuoo. ( see how wahala likes looking for my trouble). I don’t know the man from Adam, you can even ask eve. Since this semester started, he has been on my case. He even keeps seat for me because the class full up pretty fast most times (I appreciate the gesture, but… ) Yesterday he called and was asking me if I needed a ride to this mandatory conference we were meant to go for. This guy is like close to 40( i think). What am I suppose to do with this one again.
My dad’s birthday just passed. Happy birthday pops. I remember a while ago, I must have been 10 or 11. You know when you just finish primary school, done with common entrance and just chilling at home. One of those Fridays I was bored at home. Waiting till 4pm before they start showing something on TV, watching the different color of lines and sometimes when they finally come up, they show a cartoon that you must have seen a million times. I called my dad with the house phone and told him I was bored at home. Of course the boys were either playing football or basketball outside and VSNC joins them most times ( see only girl in the house). He told me to put one of my brothers on the phone. They talked for a while and my brother went out and came back home with 5 movies. When they were done with their match, we all gathered in the parlour to see the movie.
I saw like 2 of the movies, ate, had my bath and went to sleep. In our crib, we have the main house and the boys’ quarter. When my the first two older boys and my cousin got into SS1 or there about, my dad told them to move into the boys’ quarter, so they could get their own privacy. Then the 3rd boy stays where ever he falls asleep. The rest of my brothers stay in the main house with us. Anyways our room was close to the boys’ quarter, so we could hear or see whatever was happening there sometimes. Before I finally fell asleep that night, I heard my cousin and his friend chatting about a movie they saw. I think the name was the tale of the school teacher or something like that.
Next day was a Saturday, still chilling at home after doing my own portion of the environmental sanitation. My dad was reading his morning newspapers as usually ( it must have been guardian or vanguard). I asked my dad if he wanted to see a movie because I did not see the three other movies my brother borrowed the day before. He was like okay whatever you want. I went to one of their rooms (which I wasn’t allowed into, but I had permission from my dad so lol). I saw the three movies on top the TV. I checked the titles, but it wasn’t the movie my cousin and his friend were discussion about. I went to the other room, I checked around and I saw the movie inside his closet. I ran to my dad with the four movies and told him I wanted to watch the one my cousin saw first. It must be an action movie or so I thought
I put the cassette on. My dad was still reading his newspaper. I told him the movie was about to start. He set his paper down and we started watching the movie. The movie was kind of weird, no soldiers or action. At first they showed a girl and a teacher in class alone. The teacher was telling her how naughty she was and he was going to teach her a lesson. The next scene was in the bedroom and they were both taking their clothes off. My dad rushed so fast to eject the movie and he was like who gave you this movie. I told him I took it from my cousin’s room. He didn’t say anything to me. He just told me to go watch regular TV in the other parlor and get my cousin for him.
Next thing I know my dad was yelling at my cousin. He told him to kneel down and he wasn’t going to eat for that day. My dad was so angry that day. He even yelled at my brothers too. I still did not know what the commotion was about until I told VSNC about it. She said I watched a blue movie that was very very bad ( adult movie, porn). She emphasized the very very bad and I knew I was in trouble. Everybody was mad at me in the house except VSNC, my dad and my younger brother. I felt so bad, but they weren’t mad at me for long because they needed a favour from my dad and you have to go through me when it comes to asking for favor.
Now I am just sitting here wondering what was going through my dad’s head at that point in time. I know this post is about everything and nothing in particular, but I said I was going to blog and I did. Yay to me...

My friend from my last post is okay now. We thank God oh
The lovely blessing who has been smiling since 2011 and the fabulous EDJ who enjoys watching teen shows gave me this wonderful award. Thanks for acknowledging me.
7 things about bsnc
I have a twin sister duh like everybody does not know that already lol. Okay lemme try this again. 7 things about me, there is so much about me though okay let’s see.
1. I am half Nigerian. My dad is the Nigerian so I grew up and did almost everything in Nigeria. My mum sometimes cooks her people’s food and tells me a little about her culture every now and then. Since I came to Yankee, I have met a lot of people from her country and learnt more about her culture in the process. Nevertheless I consider myself a Nigerian chic any time of the day. Thus the name brownskinaijachic (bsnc) . See I rep.
2. I love music. I really love music. Any type of music; r&b, pop, rap, country, Nigerian, Christmas, Christian, jazz, rock and rock, oldies, opera, soft rock…. The only music I think I can’t tolerate is gogo music ( except “ mambo sauce – welcome to dc” ) . I love music so much I make reference to it with almost everything I do. Most of you must have noticed it form my post or comments.
3. I love to smile and I enjoy laughing. People always tell me I have a playful spirit. When I get too serious it gives a headache lol.
4. I used to be a spoilt child. My dad never allowed his girls do anything (being just two girls in the family). It was so bad, my dad used to get upset with my mum when she stresses us too much. Who would believe I would turn out like this ( the miss independent neyo was talking about or so I think lol )
5. I haven’t told anybody this before, but when my dad passed away, I was praying and hoping I would die in my sleep in the first couple of days. I guessed God has a better plan for me and I am really glad I’m still alive. I have family and friends who loves me and of course God Almighty. What I learnt from that experience is I may not have a father on earth, but I definitely have a father in heaven. He has proved it in more ways than one. Still miss my old man though.
6. I am a shy person, but when you get to know me I gradually open up. Apart from my family, I try not to get too attached to people or things. ( TRY )
7. I enjoy cooking. Even though I know I am a good cook, I still love when people compliment my cooking.
I think everybody has been tagged.
Have a lovely month folks. I will be gone for a while, but i will try to check in once in a while.

Hey people. Hope your 2011 is great. I am slowly feeling the year. I know from my last post I said this year is just okay. It’s not that bad. I really appreciate the feedback I got from my last post. You guyz are amazing. You really gave me something to think about.
This was a really tough decision. Like I said earlier on, I know it’s none of my business and normally I would mind my business, but this is a 2011 decision ( lol like the year has anything to do with it). I read each of your comments more than once and 48% of you suggested I should tell them while the other 48% suggested I should mind my business. The remaining 4 % wanted to see a picture (you are so on your own lol)
I thought about it for a while and I thought to myself if I were in their shoes I would want to know. I told them about it. Yes I did. Like I said it’s a 2011 decision and there is a saying that goes “the only thing constant in this world is change” and another one goes
“If we want to change the situation, we first have to change ourselves. And to change ourselves effectively, we first have to change our perceptions”. - Stephen R. Covey
See me drinking panadol for another man’s headache. Anyways I told them. Chic A is an outgoing person. She goes to almost every party ( she is a party rider, her fav quote is lets go there lol). I guess that is where she met her bf and I like I said from my last post. She has never been committed to one guy; she told me once that she never believes in putting all her eggs in one basket cos anything can happen. Her reaction when I told was, It’s no big deal. In her words “this things happen it’s not like a guy has not cheated on me before. She was glad I told her because she was actually getting serious with the guy. They have been going out for almost a year and she was really invested in the guy more than her the guys on the side. She also said they were both doing the same thing. She is just having fun. ( no harm no foul abi). Boy was I relieved. I could actually breathe a little. She actually thanked me and told me I was a friend she could count on. ( pheww thank you lord) That was easy..
Now chic B. Okay let me give you guyz a brief history of her. She can be outgoing, but like me she is kind of reserved and shy (believe it or not I am a shy person, but don’t mess with me oh lol). I have known her for a year plus now (compared to chic A who I met in 2008) since then we have become close. She is the direct opposite of chic A. She goes out with one guy at a time. She seems quiet, but when you get to know her she opens up to you. Her reaction when I broke the news to her. At first, she did not believe me. I wasn’t surprised and I didn’t push it ( before person use vex slap me) I let the information sink in and she asked me how I knew. I told her everything told you guyz from my last post. She goes maybe chic A is just a friend. I told her again and called a friend to confirm it. I did not tell her that the guy preferred the other chic oh. (I can’t give someone LOVEATTACK). To try and cut the long story short. She did not take the news well. I told her the news a few days ago and she hasn’t called me since then. I tried calling her, left several text messages. I mean it’s not like someone died now haba. I know people take news differently, but she has been going out with the guy for couple of months now. I feel bad that I am the bearer of bad news, but sometimes they say truth hurts and people need to hear it.
Chic B left a message for me this morning. She said she said she spoke to her boyfriend about it. He did not deny it neither did he apologize for his actions (again I wasn’t surprised). It’s better now than when she gets too serious with the guy. Imagine see how she is taking the news now what of if…… I don’t want to even think about it. She said she will call me later. I am hoping she feels better now. I know she is heartbroken. ( like the script – breakeven).
There are times you mind your business and let people find out things for themselves and there are times you just have to say something. I hope I did the right thing sha. I almost lost one ( like jay z’s song- lost one). I am tempted to send chic B this song by cee lo green- forget you..
I spoke the VSNC. She is doing great. She love her new town and of course she misses me dearly lol.( she get choice). The important thing is that she is fine. I don’t know if you guyz remember my dog, Mercedes. I did a whole post on him, well he died. I can’t believe I would go to naija and not see that dog again.
Have a lovely week people. I will see you guyz soon, I think I have some more gist to spare before…

Hey beautiful ones. How have you guyz been. I know I am kind of late, but it’s still January so Happy 2011. Welcome to a new decade and a new month. Hope you guyz had fun during the holiday. I know some of you are still in the holiday zone.
This New Year did not start well for me; I worked before and through the New Year and i added 32 more hours to my work schedule. Yup no break for me , I am so tired and school hasn’t even started. This is going to be a tough year for me. I am praying and hoping for the best though
VSNC moved to another state cos of school. If I say I miss her it’s an understatement. As my friend will say she will move to her husband’s house one day and what will I do then, absolutely nothing lol. This year has been playing me film trick, but it’s all good. I guess everything will turn out for the best eventually. To say the least this year has not been my favorite so far. The year just started sha I still have 300 days plus to go. Anything can happen, I might get married, I might win the lottery, I might move to another country…. who knows what 2011 has in store for me.
I need advice people. I have these two friends I am close to. A introduced me to her boyfriend last year. She said they have been going out for a year now. The guy was really down to earth and really funny. Anybody who knows me, know how much I love to laugh, so I liked the guy instantly. I met the guy and my friend together in two other occasions last year. Then this year B ( my other friend) has been talking about this guy she really liked. She said they have been going out for about 6 months now. She introduced him to me this year. Yup it was the same guy and he recognized me. He didn’t even hide it. I spoke to the guy the other day about it and he said he really liked both girls, but he is feeling A more than B for now. He doesn’t want to break up with either of them because they both have qualities he likes (hyena, you can’t eat your cake and have it, in his case he is enjoying it too much hissss ). These girls really liked the guy although A has some other guys on the side, but she insists that she is feeling the boy. Now I know three of them and I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but I feel obligated to tell my friends. If they find out that I knew about it how will they feel? . Mind you these babes do not know each other. One thing I have learnt from my brothers is that when it comes to matters like this, always mind your business. I don’t know jare. What do you guyz think?
