Totally not normal....
He paused briefly, looked me up and down and with one brow slightly raised up, he asked, “Do you want to go somewhere?” He looked like no one had ever turned him down in his life and besides – I did want to go with him. First I needed to make that phone call.
Why treat your son in a different way than you treat your daughter? Why does he get to have more pocket money? Or get to further his education and go for a masters degree,?but your once your daughter earns a bachelor’s degree, you are all hands off, the next questions is, Don’t you think you should be looking to settle down and have children? Who says it has to be that way? My father has always been someone I admire.
In Nigeria, the process of getting a voters card is tiring. It is like they specifically made it so stressful so that people will not vote. In this 21st century, one would have expected them to not complicate such a routine task.
I prayed that my guardian angel visits me and stay with me till I am first in everything, I prayed for a sign and then I heard a knock on the door. For the first time I finished saying my Rosary and I felt like all my prayers have just been answered.
I thought to myself as I walked past, I hope they don’t beat you, Mr. Preacher, you have some balls. It’s a free world after all and the preacher is free to preach, but is it right to target your preaching to a particular person or group of people?

You want a new job, don’t just say it, get passionate, act like you really need one, don’t sit on your ass and whine to everyone that cares to listen. You want to start a business, get passionate, start a plan, a plan can take you places, just a plan and every other thing will fall int place.
I have lots of wonderful childhood Christmas memories, I know lots of people do too, after all, it the season of love and giving. The presents, the people, the joy in the air, the difference, it felt so good, still does.
Praying without matching it with actions is just you fooling yourself. We Nigerians are so fond of this. We believe prayer is all we need. No! You just don’t need to pray, you need to work on it too.
Nobody deserves to be stood up, it happens and will definitely continue to. Of course, it’s acceptable if some kind of emergency came up that trumped your date. But, according to Barnes, if a guy you like stands you up for any reason other than forgetfulness or an emergency, you owe it to yourself to ask what his deal is and reevaluate his potential.
Growing up I kept imagining who I wanted to be and where I wanted to be. I had too many heroes but then I got to that point where I could only see me, a better me, the future me and I became my own hero.
From a very little age, I have always wanted to do things my way, it was mostly my way or no other way. I have always been the black sheep, I remember my mother always comparing me to my brother “why can’t you be more like your brother”, she will say. She tried to tame me in lots of ways.
