We have seen the enemy and it is us

Nigeria should really really beef up security..  I can't wait till we have a Nigeria when I would be able to lock up my neighbour and neighbourhood church's pastor and the entire choir for noise pollution.  That is the Nigeria of my dream. And am not leaving this world until making noise is a crime in Nigeria hell am not even leaving here until there is an app that would notify all my friend and followers online that am dead(saw that in jurassic world). And block all those people that would follow me on any social media when they find out am dead.

How to make people remember you

In the life of every human being a time would come when you would feel neglected,  like it's only you in the world.  Just imagine your phone not ringing, nobody messages you.  And when any of them happen is either it came from your network provider or its a broadcast message pronouncing doom on you if you don't pass the message on. 

       In times like this remember this post because am about to give you a lasting solution to this particular problem. This is a tested and approved solution. The next time you feel neglected, go to your friends and borrow a substantial amount of money from each and every one of them.  You are not borrowing the money for the purposes of spending so don't spend it.  Just collect and deposit in your account, on the day you promised to return the money make sure u go MIA. Then call them later and tell them you are with the money and state that you would bring it the next day. Keep posting them till they get ashamed of always calling you to ask for money and start greeting you before they ask.
         Return the money after two weeks, don't allow it exceed two weeks after the first agreement else what happened in Benin might just happen again. (remember the guy that butchered his friend because of 750k)? Yes? Okay bye. Have a nice week ahead.

Maybe it's funnier from where you are standing

I had no plans to post anything today, I had plans but it was in a different direction than am going today.  It was supposed to be light and funny but I just found out you can't do light and funny if you are consumed with anger so here goes.

DIY Ankara covered book

Hey guys...  Am so sorry have not posted anything in a while... It's been 2days and it seems like ages. I did not post anything because I have been very sad lately, I can't even watch a movie without crying, and since this is my happy place,  I decided to keep quiet because I don't need any blues to stop my juju.
     So today post is very dear or is it near to my heart. I really love DIYs because making  things make me feel better about myself and it gives me bragging right. I have adorn my book with Ankara before but I did it because the poor book was falling apart.
    Not to waste your time and because my hand has started aching me I would jump right into the tutorial/pictorial.

What you would need:
Scrap material... Cotton
A pair Scissors
Tape measure

How to:
° iron your fabric(you don't want a wrinkled book)
° measure your book and make sure your material is at least one inch bigger than book.
°place your book on the material and determine how it would stay on it
°put your glue on the book( not too much in case you want to change the material later)
°place the material over the book(just like you wrap your books with paper) 

°use the first and last pages of the book to cover the fabric.

Please read this!.

The death of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, Olubuse II will be officially announced on Wednesday.
Making the disclosure on Monday, the Awara of Iwara-Ife, Oba Layi Adereti, said the preparation of the burial of the monarch who died at Saint Mary Hospital in London about two weeks ago will immediately commence.
Oba Adereti spoke for the first time on the death of the Oba Sijuwade, which had been severally denied by the palace chiefs.
According to him, the Oro festival is the final rite of passage for the Oba Sijuwade, disclosing that between 9 am and 4 pm on Wednesday the death of Ooni would be made public.
Oba Adereti, who is also the head of Oro Cult in Ile-Ife, warned all residents, both male and female of the ancient town to keep indoors during the Oro rites.
The monarch also disclosed that after the Oro rites and proclamation, subsequent rites will follow. He therefore appealed to all Ife residents to heed the restriction order to keep away from the palace area.
He added that though only women are normally barred when Oro festival is being carried out, this time around, it has no respect for any gender.
He said: “This is an official statement from the palace of Awara of Iwara-Ife who is the head of Oro diety that on Wednesday 12th August 2015, there would be official proclamation of the demise of Ooni of Ife. The proclamation will be made public during the Oro festival, being the final rites on the demise of Ooni of Ife.
“The residents of the ancient town are therefore urged to keep away from the streets between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm during which the Oro diety will be out. With the announcement, people are advised to stay in-door for the period when the Oro will be out.”
      Long and short of this post is don't come to ife on Wednesday.

Sunday banter

Good afternoon people of God hope you all went to church, or for nasfat or to your babalawo house where ever you go on Sunday. Me I was not able to go to church, I actually decided not to go last night.  Personally am not a very good Christian, I won't come here and tell you about how much I love jesus 'hell to the no'  but I would keep trying to do what's right by me.  I decided not to go to church because I was still angry over the encounter I had with an old friend... The most annoying part is this boy did not even remember we were friends.  Like am just thay easy to forget, I actually met him at my favorite akara (bean cake) spot in ife. Apparently he came to buy akara too 'n as my mouth will not stop talking, I started talking to a total stranger and helped in out so the guy ask for my name, I was not in a name telling mood but I still managed to tell him and as politely as I can but apparently my 'friend' had seem me turn my smile upside down when I turned away 'n he decided to air his opinion.  According to him I should not have told the guy my name if I was not happy to..."who put his mouth in this matter " the most annoying thing was that he was actually forming British accent and lecturing me about been true to myself. .

Hopeless romantic

I'm saying sorry in advance cos this wont always go as planned 
Though we don't mean to take our love for granted
It is in our nature to forget what matters
When the going is getting tough
And we're all about giving up
Things that we never thought we'd say
We'd say them
Things we never thought we'd play
We'd play them
It ain't perfect but its worth it
And its always getting better
Its would take time to make it right
Cos I'm still learning the art of love
I'm still trying not to mess it up
So whenever I stumble let me know
You need to spell it out for me
If I ever hurt you it not my intention
Cos we would make mistakes
Find out how much your heart can take
But I know you've got my back
And baby I got yours
Sometimes I will miss
I'm still learning how to give
I'm not giving up
I'm still learning how to love
I would get it right sometimes
While I am learning the art of love
But when I stumble
You need to let me know
You need to spell it out

Would you rather...

 Yesterday one of my lecturers really got on my nerves, dude said my first love's actions at the end of titanic is the most idiotic thing he had seen in his life. Apart from the part where he was hating on my crush, he was actually right, why would you freeze to death over someone you met a couple of days ago.
     He also buttressed(I love this word) his point with his believe that the only language women understand is money. Me I know I speak money but personally it's not my major language am fluent in other thing too.
     As we went further into the class, he ask a question which this whole post is about.
"would you rather marry an extremely rich impotent man or a very poor man who is good in the sack?
       Personally I would prefer the rich man. Man shall not live by sex alone and my study has shown that 90% of married women miraculously develop headache 6 night of the 7 that makes a week, so what the hassle?
   So guys what's your pick?

DIY alert! Pimp my fridge

To start with am so sorry I couldn't deliver as I promised...had a lot of school work to do. I would be turning in my project proposal next Monday and I am not yet done typing it. If there was a competition featuring lazy people I would at least bring home a silver medal.
      So to today's business,  a while ago I was really into indomitable stickers. I had over 100 pieces before the promo stopped. Then I decided to do something I though was creative at first den I changed my mind and decided to remove the stickers but it turned out the paper sticker would not remove in the process making my beloved fridge look like crap. And I can't have dat so I decide to revamp it.

If we must die

I have heard about Kings dying, I have about presidents death, powerful men of God and people who end of as statistics. Nobody's death has given me course to question my own existence,  the purpose I am met to serve in this world, my beliefs.
       When I came to ife I heard gist about how great  the king is, the power in his tongue, his expected long reign, his vast riches, his strong spirit. I admired  his person, the way people reverend  him, in my fantasies I am not a poor damsel in distress,in my own fantasies I am a powerful king.
       But the man died  and I was cut off from the world of make believe and deported back to the real world on a lonely ship I call epiphany.  Now here is what I realised no matter how rich or poor u are nobody leaves this world alive, dead is a debt we must all pay.

P. S: if you plan to travel within seven days please  don't pass true Ile-Ife  anytime after 6:00pm. There is oro ritual going on for the King's send forth and believe it or not it's human sacrifice.

31 days blogging challenge.

You know how am a growing "child"  I have to remind myself am a child everyday because I am not just growing old am starting to feel old.  Just the other day my class mates where discussion best type of birth process to have and they worse part is the didn't Base this discussion on curiosity it was based on something else I could not place.  And this thing whatever it is made me hate the entire line of discussion.  We are too young  to have pregnancy apps or talk antenatal clinic visit. This conversation made me feel old and I realise am actually getting older whether I like it or not.
     So I have decided to make a change in the way I handle things.  I would start with my room, throwing away all items that are over 15 years old in there.  And the second thing I would be organising would be my thought but when am sleeping and when am awake. Am not even allowed to dream of super heroes again.
     I would also be organising my blog, I want to put a Lil bit of seriousness  to my unseriousness. So this month am doing a 31 days blogging challenge. In other words I would be blogging everyday for the rest of this month.
