When Are You Getting Married???

I am terribly sorry for the long hiatus! It is really not my fault *cries in biochemistry*. See! I never expected my life to be like this after my first degree. I mean I even swore I was done with education. When I always heard about masters, all I could picture was;

  1. Pay your school fees
  2. Go home
  3. Come and collect your certificate after one year or eighteen months

I never knew I had to attend classes every day, read like I was in medical school, devout my life, spirit and body to getting the degree. It has been flat-out hectic I must confess, way different from what I expected. The worst part of it all, the lecturer walks into the class and starts with “this is a more advanced class; I don’t have to explain too much”. I mean I can barely remember what the structure of glucose looks like and you are calling me advanced issorai.

Let me ramble a bit….

See!!! There is a very high possibility that if I hear the word marriage again and my name just so happens to be the subject of that discussion, I’ll just go on exile or something. I can categorically state that since the beginning of April I have had to talk about/listen to people talk about marriage about 453,745 times. This had me wondering if old age had finally caught up with me. Coincidentally the three closest ladies to me in my class are married, so there’s no way I can avoid the subject even if I wanted to. The worst part is the fact that every weekend someone I know gets married and I also get to hear of new set wedding dates every other day. According to my friend Ada; boys that were toasting the living day light out of us are all married now. But! Wait a minute…. I am like at least three to six years younger than these people o. The fact that I have lived a rather “fast-forwarded” life hasn’t even helped issues at all. All everyone sees is this matured overripe individual doing her masters and so she should be married or preparing to be.

I made the mistake of using the “I am still very young” line with my uncle early last week. He was quick to remind me that his mother got married at 21 and if I didn’t have a “partner” now, then… (He sha didn’t complete the statement). He even went ahead to give me a list of possible dating pools (in my mind I was just wondering if my life was really that pathetic). I got home tired as hell that day seeing as I had to go to the market after school and as always I hopped right into the kitchen to make dinner for my dad. Just when I started thinking of how this was just half of what the stress will be like when I am married with kids, my phone rang. It was someone I served with, I hadn’t heard from her since we passed out last year. We talked for a bit and then she asked “When are you getting married self?” I laughed for like 30 seconds.

I really am tired of hearing one thing or the other about marriage every single day. Brothers and sisters in the Lord there is no hurry. I AM YOUNG and it is not by force to get married!!! And I believe marriage is something you should start considering when you are actually ready to be a husband or a wife and not because everybody is getting married. Trust me it is better to be unmarried even at 45 than to hurriedly marry the wrong person. Besides I still have biochemistry to worry about *adjusts glasses*. And to everyone I know getting engaged every other day; please sell cheap asoebi, I nor get money. I don’t have a job anymore. God bless you.

And yes! Speaking of marriage I saw the picture above two days ago and I couldn’t stop laughing at the ideas that came to my head and the suggestions some friends made. All in all the conclusion was; THAT WEDDING MUST SCATTER. There’s no way in hell you should leave that venue without leaving a mark.

UNTIL NEXT TIME……… XOXO

THE TOASTING (WOOING) MANIFESTO

Hello Hello Hello lovelies, TGIF!!!!!! Mehn after the week I had, I have all the right in the world to scream TGIF as much as I want. This week was damn too hectic!!!! I think I even lost a few pounds despite all the junk I consumed. Happy Valentine’s Day in advance people. It is the season of love indeed, and for us Nigerians, the season of love, elections, manifestos, promises, slandering and so on. Just when I was rejoicing that my radio, television, social media and papers will finally be free of campaign adverts boom! INEC decided to move the elections and let people have valentines. Oh well, plans still haven’t changed, elections or no elections, valentines or no valentines I shall sleep, eat and watch movies come 14th February.

Speaking of election manifestos and promises, I never knew it affected toasting (wooing) patterns o. Lemme gist you guys….

Yesterday while I was going about my registration in school, cursing the scorching sun as I walked to the bank, someone tapped me from behind. At first I felt it was someone passing through the whole registration wahala like I was, he said “Please excuse me my name is Dr. XXXX I’ve been trying to get your attention from behind” I waited for him to ask a question or say something else. Well, he didn’t, so I continued my journey without a word (the sun was scorching mehnnn), he followed behind and said he was also headed to the bank, I still didn’t answer. We got to the bank and the security guard asked if we were together, I said no and walked in, and then I heard him reply “we are partially together”. Lmaoooooo what??? “Partially together” I laughed in my head. I went about my business, and few minutes later I saw him walking out. I was glad seeing as I was going to be spending at least 20-30 minutes inside the bank. Guess who I saw immediately I stepped out of the bank! Sigh!

He walked with me and started his yarn. “Like I said my name is Dr. XXXX, I work with something medical center (I was too tired to pay attention); I am hoping to start my residency here. What’s your name?” I told him and he continued. (P.S: This time some months ago, I wouldn’t have been so nice, I would have just told him to keep moving instead of wasting his precious time and mine. I have decided to be nicer). “You see, it’s all about interest here, I’m very interesting” he paused (holding the laugh that was to follow took God’s grace sha). I said nothing, then he continued There’s no need beating around the bush here, I want to be very blunt…. (Insert short pause)….. I want you as my woman I turned to him in shock and laughed mehnnnn I just couldn’t hold it anymore. The laugh didn’t stop him o, he continued by telling me everything about his education, youth service, where he was from (even his local government) and parents all in about four minutes. While he was talking I was busy beating myself up inside for not parking closer to the bank. He asked where I was from, I answered and then the manifesto proper began. You see, you are a very wonderful, beautiful and kind woman (he saw me roughly about 30 minutes ago and I had spoken roughly about 20 words to him and he could already deduce this) and I promise to respect you because that’s one thing a woman deserves” he paused again to gather thoughts I presume. Then he continued “I promise to stand by your side and provide for you, I don’t know what your quest is in life, because I know we all have different quests but…..” just before he could complete his statement I muttered “Thank God” I finally found my car. I stood waiting for him to round-up while counting to ten in my mind. He finally started his closing speech “Well, in conclusion, I am single and I really want to settle down and seeing you I believe my quest is over. Like I said I don’t know your quest in life but you are a wonderful woman and all these are the things I have to offer. I may not know how yet but I know you won’t regret being my woman.” I heaved a very big sigh of relief when I realized his speech was finally over, I didn’t want to break my “niceness vow” after two months nahhh. At this point all that was going through my head was; “uncle you would have made a very good politician o”. He asked for a pen to write down my number because his phone was off; and I thought “Ame, this would be the perfect time to sha give a wrong number”. Well, I gave the correct number, I am that nice.

While I sat in my car trying to recover, my thoughts wandered off to how Dr. XXXX was so similar to many of our Nigerian politicians. Promises from every corner of their mouths, if their noses could make promises I’m sure we would get promises from there too, but how they intend to fulfill these promises, we never get to hear that part. They run problem based campaigns, like we don’t know what the problems are. What we need are “solution based” campaigns! We already know the problems. We know corruption has eaten deep into the fabrics of the nation, we know power isn’t constant, we know security is paramount; but how do you intend to tackle these ‘pressing’ problems? That’s what I’m interested in.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

GIRLS, WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR PARTNER (BOYFRIEND, BOO, LOVER, HUSBAND etc) CAME TO PICK YOU UP WITH HIS FEMALE FRIEND, YOU GET TO THE CAR AND SHE’S STILL SITTING IN FRONT?

I’ve had it in mind to post this for a while now, too many things on my mind mennn. Seeing as It crossed my mind again just now, i finally decided to.

A very long time ago, someone asked me a similar question, and my reply was “it doesn’t matter jare, front seat or back seat it’s all the same, nor be the same motor” (I was still a child then sha! shallow thinker!). When I saw this picture some weeks back, my response wasn’t the same at all!!! The first thing that came to heart was “Ehn!!!! I will first slap the boyfriend” (No, I’m not violent).

Let me break it down; as kids I and my siblings used to do the “whoever gets to the car first sits in front” thing. And every single time, we’d almost end up fighting. Then my father or mother would come and say “the front seat is for the senior”. Then we’d all fall in line. Over time, I came to realise it wasn’t just about seniority, it was mainly about “RESPECT”.

I applied the same logic here when analysing this issue. It’s all about respect. If my partner comes to pick me up with “his female friend”, and “his female friend” is still in the front seat when I get there;

First, I’ll take it as a very big sign of disrespect. Then again, maybe it skipped his mind.

Secondly, I’ll gladly without saying a word open the front door and wait for “his female friend” to step out and move to the back. One of two things will happen; she’ll either gently step out immediately, or look at my partner first.

Thirdly, if she steps out, fine, if she looks at my partner first, I’ll gladly close the door, go over to the driver’s seat ask the man in question to step out and I’ll kindly take over the wheels. If he doesn’t, I’m sha not entering that car that day!!   O pa ri *in my yoruba accent* (No! I don’t like drama, I’m not a drama queen)

I meannnn like my parents taught me “the senior stays in front”. So, Driver’s seat o, Front passengers’ seat o, all na front.

My point is, it’s less about ‘the seat’ and more about RESPECT.

Girls/Females what would you do in this situation, Men/Males I want your opinions too, Hermaphrodites you aren’t left out either. Let me know what you think in the comment section.

Then again, ladies, what if it was a guy in the front seat?

P.S: After trying several Red velvet cake recipes, I finally got it right today (maybe that’s why i even found the inner strength to post). Anddd i decided to try the “oreo cookies and buttercream icing”!!! While I was baking, voices in my head kept yelling “Ame you’ll get fatter, eventually burst and die”… But who cares??? I’ll start myself on a weight loss diet once I finish the cake. That’s if i don’t find another set of recipes to obsess over.

Hello beautiful people, my sincerest apologies for my absence. It’s been one exam or one essay to the other these past weeks and then my long awaited convocation coupled with this writer’s block from my hell. This is a follow up to the last post READ HERE and I’ll like to start by saying, no it’s not just men, women cheat too (a lottt). I’m saying this because a lot of people kept telling me that cheating wasn’t just a “men” thing. Then again the first part of this post was bordered towards just a single aspect of cheating (the fact that women had come to accept it as a part of men) I felt needed to be addressed. I mostly loved Michael’s (Mikkytush) comment on the first part of this post. Although that wasn’t what the first post was addressing, he basically lifted the thoughts off a part of this follow up post.

I read a tweet from a girl sometime ago that said “Men are hard to find this days o, so whatever your man does, keep him, because there are a million girls waiting to take your spot”. After that I had a talk with a much older woman and she said “Most women only remain in marriages or relationships no matter what their partners do because they are so concerned about what society will say if they leave their partners and the fact that they do not want to be single”. I said something about an ideology shift in the first post; here’s where it all begins. Most females feel the need to accept their men as cheats and basically do nothing about it because they feel they’d rather be with a serial cheat than be single. I believe this mind set is one of the birth mother of the ideology “All men ought to be cheats”.

You hear women telling their partners things like; you are free to do whatever you want with anybody you want, just make sure I never get to hear about it. Biko females get this into your head, MEN ARE NOT BORN CHEATS! MEN SHOULDN’T CHEAT! Let’s get this idea into heads first. Above all, your reaction to your partner cheating shouldn’t be you remaining there “for better or worse” (especially when you aren’t married to him) or asking stupid questions like “What does she have that I don’t”. If your man cheats call him to order! Don’t keep mute because you are afraid of being alone. If he continues, find your way out, and yes he’ll definitely move on to the next girl. That shouldn’t be your concern, your concern should be your self-respect and sanity, if he cheats on the next girl she will probably find her way out too. Sooner or later he’ll MOST LIKELY come to his senses or get HIV. Quit holding on to the i’m the one he comes home to belief, you are not a goat.

WHY SHOULDN’T MEN CHEAT?

Putting myself in a man’s shoe, the truth is this; looking at most females around, the first thing that would come to my mind is abeg why I nor go cheat.

In the first post, the first caller said the girl he was cheating on his wife with knew he was married and didn’t care. Unfortunately the girl is just one of the millions of females that have lost respect for the institution “marriage”. Sadly females claim to prefer dating married men because they are better providers (the na them dey pay pass mindset), more “responsible”, and have less wahala that all them single boys. This is all shades of wrong!!!  Please females leave married men people’s fathers alone!!! And the men should still learn to stand in the face of temptation!

A contributing factor to the infidelity saga is the materialistic jests most females have reduced themselves to. Most females would do anything for a man with a car, house etc (not minding where it originated from). I’m not saying it’s wrong to want these things, but biko some girls need calm down!!! I was having a chat with a friend about relationships and cheating and he said “Until recently I had this belief that all girls were prostitutes”. This hit me rather hard, why would a man with this belief ever be faithful to his partner and the sad truth is he had every right to have that ideology! I mean a quick look at most of the females around and you’ll reason in the same light. The fact remains most females have reduced themselves to that level where men no longer see the need to be faithful. The only unfortunate part being that the few good girls still in existence are at the negative receiving end of this most often.

All I’m saying is let’s stop using the “All men ‘are’ or ‘should be cheats’ ideology as an avenue to condone cheating. All men should be faithful to their partners as should the women to their men and please girls leave people’s husbands and fathers alone! And try to have a little respect for yourself and the feminine gender in general with regards to relationships. That is the only way they can give us the respect we deserve.
