Hello beautiful people, THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!!!!! I’m sha turning up on my bed with my laptop and a few movies to kick-start my weekend. Happy New Year again, I trust you all enjoyed the holidays. Well, it’s back to real life for me, the house is empty again, work has resumed and yes I totally hate that the holidays are over. Good thing about these first few days of the year is how mild Lagos traffic is, I believe most people are still in their villages and most schools are still on break. Ermmm any possibility you guys want to remain in your villages??? I wouldn’t hate Lagos so much if traffic was always like this sha.

To the issue at hand! There’s this popular belief that “what people say or think about you shouldn’t matter to you” in as much as this train of thought is quite right, I believe it shouldn’t just end there. In a message I listened to sometime ago, the preacher made reference to this; he said he ordered a bottle of coke in a restaurant once, and after he was served, he turned the content of the bottle into a glass and asked the waiter to return the bottle. While he was drinking he looked around him and saw that every other person was drinking wine. He then asked the waiter to bring back the bottle. Why? According to him, he had always preached against drinking alcohol, and anyone passing by him would assume he was drinking wine and not coke. First because everyone around was drinking wine and also because when he look at the coke in the glass himself, it looked like something other than coke. He went on to say that he didn’t want to give people around any reason to have anything negative to say concerning him, not that their saying anything would affect his standing with God (how God sees him) which is the only view that matters to him but whether he liked it or not, he had an image to uphold. His analysis made me reason this belief in another light.

Back in school Ada and I asked a friend of ours (a guy) to come with us into the female hostel. He refused and said he had never entered a female hostel (that was his fourth or fifth year in school). We asked why, and he said “quite a lot of people know me, so I wouldn’t want to give them reasons to have anything negative to say”. I didn’t put much thought into what he said then, it all came back when I started this post.

Yes, what people say shouldn’t bother you, but that should only be the case if you’ve not given them reasons to have anything negative to say. Like it or not your image (how people see you) is important and should be protected. Whether we like it or not the so-called “people” we are not supposed to put into consideration when going about our lives, are likely the same “people” who would probably have a say concerning us tomorrow. In putting this into consideration, you should also be careful not to over-burden your pretty head with what people think. Because, no matter how perfect you live your life, some people witches and wizards will always have something negative to say. Also, “people” shouldn’t be the only factor to consider when carrying out actions; there is also a YOU factor to be considered. We just need to find a balance. Bottom line, in not caring about what people say or think about you, you have a responsibility to make sure you don’t give them a reason to have anything negative to say/think.

Hello brethren, I’m here again and today its going to be all about me!!! Few weeks back my friend and sister Esther of The way Esther sees it blog tagged me in a blog challenge, but as usual, laziness has had the better part of me. I’m required to write 20 very random facts about my very own self. The essence of this is to enable our readers know more about us. So, here goes;

1) I am funny.

2) I absolutely love movies. Detective fiction (homicides preferably) would forever be my first choice. Medical drama, legal drama and Con movies (leverage, hustle et al) would stand in second place. I’m no fan of “mindless” comedy (a perfect example being all them Mr. Ibu and Osofia movies).

3) I have a profound phobia for animals; especially CHICKENS!!!!

4) The most attractive features in the opposite sex for me would be, dimples and gap teeth (not window biko).

5) If I could be absolutely anything in the world, I would be a sniper.

6) I do not want a Ferrari I want a truck. A toyota tundra 2014 will be just fine!

7) I hate crossing roads.

8) My favourite physical feature would be my large eyes.

9) I’m quite razz. If my parents weren’t my parents, I would probably be a tout.

10) If I ever decide to leave my house to go out with you especially with public transport, then I must have either cancelled too many times, or I must really really like you.

11) I over think “everything” i.e headache = brain tumor.

12) I love rap music. Favourite rappers being Eminem, Lupe fiasco and M.I. I used to love Kanye.

13) I could sleep all day and not feel bad about it, this goes without saying I love beds and comfortable couches and yes I’m “relatively” lazy; emphasis on relatively.

14) I love football. I’m a die hard FC Barcelona fan. I’m also a die hard Lionel MESSI (god of football) fan.

Lionel-Messi

15) In as much as I hate to admit this, I am a webaholic; complete Internet junkie.

16) My favorite food would be between starch with banga or egusi, plantain with owò and beans with dodo (fried ripe plantain)

17) Ironing is one thing I despise doing! I can pay you anything to help me iron.

18) I enjoy pounding yam; yes! mortar and pestle not yam pounder abi pounding machine(whichever it is called).

19) I am very impatient, one of the worst things you could ever ask me to do is to get in a queue.

20) I like big clothes, I find them extremely comfortable.

Also, i can argue with you from now till next year if I believe i’m right.
