Broken Hearts X Mended Friendships

Hey guys,

This week went by really fast…… and the weekend is here , I can already smell it.
Today we would be talking mending broken friendships. This topic is dear to me because I have had an experience and it was not pretty.
 “I had hurt her a great deal, I should have at least heard her out but no I just shut every single avenue to communicate with her. Back then it felt like the right thing, but now that I sit back and reminisce about the whole issues all I keep asking myself was how I got here.
All I wanted to do was turn back the hands of time, right my wrongs and have my friend back. I finally got the opportunity and summoned the courage to ring her up and talk things over. For those that know me, telling people sorry has never actually been my strong suit but I made an exception in this case.
Honestly, after clearing the air I felt like a great burden had been lifted off my heart. It might take a while to go back to the way we were or we might never, I don’t know but one good thing came out of it all
I got my friend back………………”

Its Giveaway Season…….

Hey Guys,
So our dear country, Nigeria, turns 56 in a couple of days. A lot of people might not see any reason to be thankful or celebrate due to the recent economic situation of the country, but I am thankful that despite all the issues coming up here and there, Nigeria is still standing as a nation. I believe Nigeria can weather any storm that comes its way but it requires a great deal or patience and perseverance. God on our side we will over come.

in other news, I got a couple of tickets to the live recording of the Highlites with Ik show. Highlites with Ik is a tv show hosted by popular radio personality and Big Brother Africa host, Ik Osakioduwa. The show tackles societal issues with a dose of humor and wit, also rib-cracking and hilarious skits that the everyday Nigerian can relate to.

CURIOUS CASE OF A WALLFLOWER




I had always tried to blend in

Lol … I could have easily been mistaken as part of the interior décor

Shy, Introverted, Melancholic, Anti-social were the words that best described me


I loathed being unnoticed, ignored, but at the same time I didn’t want the unnecessary attention the other really pretty girls got, Ironic yeah?

Well, can’t actually blame anyone, I guess this is what happens when you are a “Plain Jane”

I just might be invincible, maybe or maybe not. I don’t know

Can’t anyone see that I also breathe the same air as they do, or don’t I?
I guess I will never know….

                                                                               -Wallflower since the 90’s


LOVE, EMOTIONS AND PUNCHES……

Ok Guys! Calm down and please don’t go about punching. This is not in any way to suggest that punching a girl is not an abuse. Gender bias? Ok – babes be mindful too. Even our subtly hitting of a guy’s chest when we are in love and they just won’t get it might just be termed as an abuse.  Well I don’t want to exaggerate but abuse has been fantastically and corruptibly justified these days. She hit me first he said – Charlatan!

Where Has The Spirit of Gratitude Gone??????

ˈɡratɪtjuːd/
noun
  1. the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
 I stare out the car window and i see him with the blank expression on his face. 
He couldn’t believe his luck. 
He worked from dawn to dusk and nothing exciting hardly happened.
Until today…..
He stared  at the 1000 naira note in his hand,
like it was gold.
He asked the man in the Range Rover, what have i done to deserve this,
I only cleaned the windshield of your car.
 
The man looks at him, collects the 1000 naira note back and brings out a wad of 1000 naira notes, hands it over the young guy.
That was it! he lay flat on his belly on the busy tar road just to show gratitude.
 
Just one statement caught my attention; No one has ever done this for me; what have I done to deserve this .
 
He moves to a secluded corner, goes on his knees, shedding tears of joy, praying and thanking God”.
