Remember the 'If you ever wondered HE could cheat' post that was posted sometime in May? Well, here is a continuation of that series. The Lesson number 1 was to trust yourself which makes me move unto the lesson of today
Lesson 2: Be a 'ME' Before You are a 'WE'
It is better to pursue your career, pick up that job that you deserve, have that bank account you've always wished you had, establish that business idea. So that when things finally go down (not that yours truly is hoping that they do) , you can be able to conveniently bounce back and forge ahead. Some faithful believers would dismiss this argument, and say to pray that one's relationship never goes south. Do you really blame them? No! They are very right, but I would still stand my grounds on this one that every thinking man in a relationship or not should make it their priority to either do the above or do whatever it is that would ultimately make them happy.
Life can be hard, especially when the society has set standards for us. But believe me guys when I say that this same society will never have your back if you decide never to go with the pack. No one can promise you tomorrow but yourself... In any case, you should be ready to fight some fights alone, and be you not someone who's trying so hard to be a man pleaser or one who loves to live in another person's shadows.
I loved today's weather. Not so hot neither was it so cold. May be that was the inspiration for the post you think? May be not. Lol. Cheers to having overcomed that Monday fear that 'so easily beset us' lol

When an older woman sees you, or those you perceive to be older than you (say age 35 or so), they always feel the need to offer you a firsthand account on how you should take care of your child. It has been raining cats and dogs these days, and little me, got a cold. I took her to see her peds yesterday. And I was eating akara (which by the way has been a breakfast ritual). Once, we settled in the lobby to have them pull out our card, this woman with her own baby on her back in the rain (hawking puff- puff and donut) came to me, and here was the short but uncomfortable chat we had:

Well, I'd like to tell you about a recent faux pas or gaffe (if you would) that just happened less than 5 minutes ago.
A man comes into an office where I was and just as he was done having inquired about whatever it was that brought him there in the first place, he turned to me and asked whose name and number he should write as a contact. I answered " your wife's except that you don't know her number. I saw something on his face that read 'Hey lady I am a millennial man and a cool one like that too' which means I know so much that I can even begin to tell you the color of the panties and or lingerie she had on before stepping out of our home.' -
Moral of this is that assumptions will not do anyone any good. That belief that men don't remember, don't care, or are never interested in women's affairs is so sloppy, and mind you these happened in those days, not these times. These men know, I mean very much. There's so much information on just about anything. I made a mistake, and also learned from it, though the memory may be long lasting.
I am feeling like this right now, except that I don't look anything like her.

I was a guest at this wedding ceremony this past Saturday and to my horror, there are literally no pictures whatsoever to show as proof. I wasn't a Party Crasher, however, but not having several pictures to 'idly browse through at every second' , just made it really really bad.... I blame that on the power failure that hasn't been fixed since Thursday. Yes, frigging DemoCRAZY day. Had there been light, I would have at least taken some pictures using my 'Crackberry.'
The part that 'pained' me the most was seeing Dare Art- Alade emcee at the reception (Yup, I saw him, but was unable to FAMZ him Chai- DARRIS GOD OH!) and not even having had a picture of him were I to make boast to my friends for seeing him in real life was all the more annoying. But on a lighter note, what would you guys rather I do to save any future disappointments with the phone, or with the Power distribution people.
Should investing in a camera or a phone with a powerful precision do the trick???
