Let's DIY

I have not made anything myself forever. I really envy does who have jobs, children, husband  and run a blog.  How do you manage to do all that together? But then again that's what being a woman is all about(you have to multi task). I lost every image on my phone including the pictorial I did but I refuse to let that stop me from doing a DIY post before the month ends.  As luck would have it I happen to have a couple(more than a couple actually) DIY pictures in my backup file related to my blog.  So I can rightly say Google saved the day.
 The first is a pearl, Bobby pin and string hair pin... It would give your hair that

Some cool apps I use

Blogger... I downloaded this app July. I used it often for a while until it suddenly stop working properly. I would like to believe it's the network connection at my side.  You can use it if your blog is still under blogger. 

Blogaway is also a blogging app.  However it has more functions than the official blogger app. It's very easy to upload pictures and videos and use links in post.  It also has provisions for reading list and you can save a post without necessarily saving it online.
 
Brick game.
You could not stop smiling when I saw the game for the first time... It's an epic throwback.  The downside is the games are not complete but it's super cool.

It is military

Does this makeup look real or what?

Hello loves, happy Sunday.  I no I am supposed to apologise for my disappearing act but am sure you are tired of my apologies by now.  Lemme just jump into today's post abeg.  To start with my title, It just felt like the right 'wrong'  one to use.  So I have been alive for a while and I have been taking decision for my self since I was in secondary school(I went to a boarding house). Now after making some decisions with objection for about 12 years without objection imagine my surprise when my father suddenly decrees I must be a Catholic.  Since when did the father's faith start saving the child?  I love the Catholic Church, I do but I also believe in making a path for myself.  I want to partake of the opium which religion but I want to take it in the best quality that is good for me. Now how do I say this to my very traditional father who believe every objection to his rule will bring you to your ruin.  Now I would like to honour my parents, do the will of God and also follow my heart(there in lies the problem) do I then go back to take catechism class with primary school pupils or do I continue attending my present church.?
      Do you think I am supposed to attend my parents church whether I like it or not?

Now that am a school administrator

Holla everyone, how have you been? So I just got home from school yesterday. Should have been home two weeks ago but for my little fear of road transportation.  I become ill everytime I board a public vehicle.  At first I thought it was because of the comatose state of this medium of transportation, so I stopped boarding 'ugly'  vehicles but the witch mother kept giving birth to girls.
         The major reason I didn't want to go home goes beyond this public transport brouhaha but the fact that my has decided to rope me into this school administrator or supervisor or spy business.  Now am used to working when I get break from school.  I have been a sales rep, tailor's apprentice, fashion designer's intern, usher,  interior designer.  The good thing about all the other jobs is that people like me because of the kind of service I provide and because am nice sometimes.  Now the terrible thing about been a school administrator is that you have to be a critic.  Shine your eyes  and if you have have the slightest urge to close them glue them open. Who like to be the person coming when people scamper to their properly exaggerated proper position.
        Anyway u have some questions...  Please do well to answer them.
1) do you think it is right for a teacher to ask primary 4 pupils to spell ABORTION? If your answer to this question is yes.  How is he to define it for them or use it in a sentence.
2)what would be your reaction if you find out your daughter who you name "Awesome"  is called A_WE_SOR_MEY (yoruba pronunciation) by her class teacher.
3)for those who have kids did you you interview your kids teachers before putting your offspring in their care?
4) would you bring your kids to a school where they commanding officer is my age group?

It's a post about nothing.




It's been so long have posted anything here... I wanted to blame it on glo(my network provider) but then again that would be a lie.  I don't know how I have been living without Internet since.  I just felt like I didn't need it.  I stopped pressing my phone for a while and talk to people around me. It's been cool anyways.  I don't have a clue as to what to write right now and I can't find my jotter so I decide to show you guys pictures of the "make-up" I did for a friend... It's a regular make-up not professional. She happened to like it a lot and I got my peace of mind back so win win.  

  

           I went for a friend's introduction on Sunday.  I was however not able to snap any picture because I was not looking good and because rice finished before I arrived at the venue.

  Introduction started by 2 and I got to the venue by 5:30. Talking about African time.  Anyways that was the only thing I did while I wasn't here coupled with sleep and movies. I also changed my hair colour.

Tomorrow land

This is my biro after my last paper

This is something a classmate wrote about the books we treated this semester (it's super cool, you would find it the same way if you have come across any of the books mentioned) it was written with the name of the courses, the title of d books, settings, characters, the lecturer, and a couple of my class mates.

In a brief sojourn on the island of LIT 401, A PASSAGE TO INDIA marked the genesis of our journey, a place where we met the untouchable himself, Punkah Wallah who gave each and everyone of us a copy of a book titled THE AUTUMN OF THE PATRIARCH. Dr. Aziz, Adela and Major Callender, took us to the Marabar caves, a place we saw first wonder on earth. What did we see? Our Morenas in the land of LIT 401 (Tayo, Dolapo, Yejide, Adeolas and others} were the first set of people that saw the wonder. They all came us shouting “THE GRASS IS SINGING” come and see. We couldn’t believe our ears until we got there. It was truly a cynosure of all eyes. As a result of this wonderful experience, each and everyone of us wrote SO LONG A LETTER to our loved ones. We all enjoyed at Ayemenem where THE GOD OF SMALL THING punished law breakers. We spent wonderful moments with Pappachi, Mammachi, Chacko , Ammu, Velutha, Baby Kochamma,  Estha and Rahel. In fact, Estha and Rahel taught us new style. I want to believe we still remember the style. Thanks to Dr. Ogunfolabi. If I had not gone to Ayemenem, I would not have met my soul mate, Baby Kochamma. Since she could not marry Father Mulligan, she has agreed to be my  would be wife. You are all cordially invited to a small party to mark the dawn of our undying and unfading love.  
Our journey to the Island of LIT 403 was an interesting one. We had the opportunity of visiting Greece, Rome, Spain, England, Africa, and Germany. The first place we visited was Greece, where we met a woman called ANTIGONE, who introduced LYSISTRATA, her best friend to us. The duo took good care of us; we ate, we drank .The journey became more interesting when we got to England where we met A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS called JULIUS CAESAR. It was this man who brought a man called SCAPIN THE SCHEMER; a prankster, to entertain us with jokes. This man really played pranks on every one of us before we left England. It was this same man who took us to a place called CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE where we watched two interesting movies: END GAME and A PLAY OF GIANTS. They say: “the end is the end of a play.” None of us wanted to come back home. In fact, some of us wanted to stay with Scapin.  Exam is just for a short period,but it requires efforts of many days and months It involves tension,worries,efforts and sleepless nights. We are now free guys and gals . Unto the almighty God we return all glory and adoration. May Eportal smile at us when our results are released. Amen.

Feminism is a joke!


Holla blog family.... How una dey, se wa daada(how are you, hope you are good)... I so love translating yoruba and pidgin English (it makes me feel responsible)...  So is it me or has any other person wondered why an inferior "hybrid" of the Queen English and an indigenous language is called pidgin English.  Why not igbo English or Nigeria English? If you have an answer to that drop it in the comment box.
           So to today's post.  A couple of my girlfriends were reading yesterday...  The course happened to be a literature course ... It was about various theory that has been used to criticism literature works and English in general.  Now the problem is she seem to lack interest in feminism and she was quite vocal about  her dislike of feminist both writer and activists.  As u was in an argument with her and I never loose an argument I refuse to see her point even though she made no point in particular but the entire universal was making a point for her.  I realise she knew nothing about the real point of the feminist movement and what she knows she got from what she is fed by the Internet daily. 
       We have the 'free the nipples campaign'  where few jobless women decided it is okay for them to bare their breast.  The mistake they made however is baring their chest under the guise of feminism(equality between man and woman).  Now I have no issue with a girl deciding to walk about naked  but please don't force it down our throats. 


          And the newest one is ladies loosing their tampons and pad or whatever they use to protect themselves from getting stained during their monthly menstrual period.  This is not just stupid but disgusting.  I don't understand why anyone would want to do that.  Is it for the 15 minutes of fame or humiliation in most cases(but any form of publicity is acceptable right?) . 


          Now I would not forget the armpit hair.  So girls even went as far as colouring their armpit hair. 


         If I myself didn't know better I would say the entire feminist movement is a joke.  Am patiently waiting for the next lugubrious theory this so called feminist would resurrect.
          So what do you think of this right the 'modern' 21st century feminist are clamouring for?  Do tell.
