Neefemi speaks: if you can't already tell by now, TayneMent is like my fav person in the world... I can't even thank her enough cos i din't even ask her to do this before she did....and its so genius imma do a part 2, cos imma a major Disney, Nickelodeon & Abc family fiend...who saw Beauty & the briefcase (Hilary Duff) so cuutttteee..... i'mma sucker for romantic comedies/drama whatever - at least true love seems possible after watching like 2 until reality hits, lol
This weekend i was just down, was feeling dissatisfied with life and not even music could help...and then Sunday night, hooked up with a twitter friend....turned out to be a gentleman & cute & could carry a conversation.....i'm pimping him out, if anyone is interested, let me know...He's an Engineer, lol...he so did not ask me to do this, but seeing as i can't have him, i thought i would share (never mind that i dont know if he is single or not, lol) ......And today has been good, been listening to music at work all day and sweardown, music might yet be the death of me....and gosh some of these songs, i shouldn't know the words to...but i do (covers my head in shame) God forgive me sha
So everybody was quick to talk about Beyonce attending Bella (now nee) Adenuga's wedding, i don't hear you and all your rotten mouths saying anything now that she didn't show, people cursed the man for nothing and don't get me wrong not like i support what in my opinion would have been a waste of money (i'm very cheap, give me the money, for my future children please), but #isityourmoney? what is your own? and why couldn't you just wait to talk after the wedding...again like i said, i ain't hearing folks chat shit now....SMH!!!
I had a great relationship with my dad growing up until everything pafukad(lol, whatever the hell i'm trying to say) but when i think of my future i often pray that my daughter (never mind that i don't want a girl) but if i do have one, i want her to have the best of relationships with her dad...i want them to be best-friends, and i often see her on his feet dancing & i pray that he never disappoints her... i think its very important cos tho i seen all the evil my dad did...he made me feel like a star so i never went to a man looking for affection, looking for love, attention or money...through it all my dad is my #1fan and the same can be said for all my sisters...infact if anything, no offense, boys/men are playthings to us....my dad just kinda made us realize that men are abundant in the world, it was a matter of picking one but most importantly picking the right one, no offense but somewhat opposite of him, lol
Please tell me you have all read Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart..... i actually know two people, Nigerians for that matter that haven't read it...#epicfail .....This book is a required book to read for students here and as of 2009 was #14 on Top 100 book, meta-list....get a copy if you haven't...its really a shame to not have read it, even if you don't like reading
Have a great week
P.S I LOVE YOU

- I have to be like everyone & say GOD, Bros J (Jesus) & my guidance counselor the Holy Spirit….he has perfected my ways and keeps blessing me ridiculously, plus his last gift to me has kept me praising him & will continuously do so all the rest of my life
- Music – sometimes I have to ask God to forgive me, cos I feel like I love music more than him… I thank him for musicians, artists, songwriters, composers, producers, managers, everyone involved in music each day.
- My family and friends – my friends make up my family & my family makes up my friends if that even makes sense….for the support, encouragement, push, unconditional love… I cant say thank you enough
- Talking to him… he came @ the right time & I’ve never enjoyed conversations so….anything from music to politics to sports back to music….and o we haven’t met, so this is good, lol…I think …. I love intelligent conversations (turns me on)
- Writing…. I love writing, the release I get from speaking my mind, even when I’m judgmental, the joy of doing a music review, writing poetry or a short story, writing total B.S sometimes (thanks twitter) and hopefully start THE script with T.Notes soon(think he has given up on me, sowwwiieee)
- Which brings me to you guys…. I love, love Blogsville, can’t say that enough, you are the absolute best…I’m sure I can’t thank you enough for what you do for me
- I love cooking…. I hate to eat ( chewing is just a long thing jo, I hope I don’t starve myself when I’m pregnant)…but I absolutely love to cook, especially seeing the satisfaction from those eating it…. I’m a mean cook if I say so myself J
- Material things I love include – shoes, wrist watches, dresses (esp black dresses), Boyshorts (can’t stand thongs really) shades (don’t get to wear it much cos I wear glasses), earrings (can’t ever do without this) & my blackberry of course nothing else I crave materially surprisingly enough
- I love studying – whew, I knew there was something I was missing…. I love books, I love learning, I love school (hence going back) & I guess reading novels can be included here … its all part of this need to finish a book, including textbooks cover-cover…. I think I have this need to appear smart and knowledgeable about all topics ( thank God for Google & Wikipedia)
- I love smiles…. I love those who make me smile, hence my love for kids, they bring so much to my heart…my love for trying new things & dancing, there's so much joy gotten there & you can' help but smile….hence my love for comedy esp romantic comedies, so much laughter & smiles…..hence my love for traveling, I love the smiles when I get to my destination & the smiles when I return (do u get?) and why I like him, hes’s always smiling
I hate death - i utterly do and though i did not know Da Grin, i loved his body of work. I love that he inspired a whole culture to love their language. I'm angry i will never get to see him, was going to pull major strings to meet him. I hate that death has so much power over us. But i thank God for a life well spent true it all. I'm 23 and i know i am unaccomplished compared to him. So i guess the lesson here is follow your dream, follow your heart, go after what you want with ruthless abandon. Leave absolutely no room for regrets, i can't stress this enough and if you see the quote i have at the top of my blog, let that be your walking principle and above all PRAISE GOD, be for GOD, don't be deceived, there is Heaven and Hell, its real.
#thatisall .... Have a great weekend guys

Hello y'all….. I'm back….lol, not like I ever left….I'm too in love with blogsville men….I keep wondering when I will get tired…I've decided that I won't get tired but I guess my followers will change, cos y'all will be tired of me…. But yea, the exam went well, it was my sisters bday as well yesterday so all in all, I was glad….1000/1600…I tried abi….I'm not that smart jo ….How was y'alls weekend tho? I hope you all are doing good…kisses all around…o but none for Roc…he is no longer my blog crush jo, the boy is always hiding….y'all can like to introduce me to new mysterious male bloggers, with a writing skill like no other especially when it comes to sex &/romance…..hehhehehh ….Good luck to those in school as you start your exams btw, it is well with you all…..o and my next post will be my 100th, you all have not said what I should do o…so whatever you see, that's ok abi….goodie
So the reason why we are here today is for an exclusive look into my playlist for my wedding day. No there are no wedding bells ringing anywhere and never mind that I can't tell you what I want my wedding to look like, no idea for cake or dress…can the man just come, that's all I ask….but I for sure know what I want to hear sha….I wasn't going to do this, cos there is some kind of wedding/relationship bug on blogsville and I refuse to be sucked in…babes are still semi - single (me I want formal request to be girlfriend, is this wrong tell me people? I don't like to assume jo) and ain't complaining *wink*…..but then I heard the first song you are about to hear and I had tears in my eyes and I remembered that I was a girl…kmt!!!! So here we go guys enjoy
Gerald Levert – I was made to love you
Is there a better song? – can this like be the song I walk in with? …hehehhehehe
Keith Urban – Only you can love me this way
Need I say more….the words speak volumes, country music is still my best genre jo
Luther Vandross – Here and Now
Sigh* he shouldn't have died men…. This song is so special
I choose you: Mario's then Ryan Leslie's
So BB and I are on opposite sides on this…I want the one for my wedding and he wants the other for his….don't even ask why we were talking weddings. Smh
Nways can you guess which he picked and the one I picked…plus would really want to know which is better in your opinion….will tell u mines in the next post
And last but not least
Banky W ft Tynie – Till my dying day
Tuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeee …..This is the song men *tears*
Omygosh…..such a girl!!!! Nways let me know what you all think….if you are married, what songs did u have on? And if you are not married what songs do you want not on this list?
#random: why is it that if u r dating someone say he's in Chicago and you live in NY, when he travels to Naij or London…you feel like he is far away & u miss him….ain't he far nways….

What it do folks?….again Happy Easter, hope you all had a nice break if you did have one …. America no dey celebrate Easter….May God forgive them….lol @ at my attempt to speak pidgin….i can't speak it for shit, my side of Surulere we spoke yoruba all the way, the Igbo's and Hausas all around were forced to speak and understand it too…that's how bad…..
So I'm sick again…. I knew there was a reason I was down the other night….I rarely get down, at least I try not to….. I could only stay at work for half a day (the money is paining me sha) ….at some point I sneezed 10 times in a row, and on my way back I thought I was going to have an accident cos I have to close my eyes while sneezing (is it possible to have your eyes open while sneezing?)
So before I share songs with you and as I type this I have no idea the songs I want to share with you....I'm sure it will come to me …. I feel the need to address this issue…. And this is my point of view, will love to hear your point of view….
Since the whole Chris Brown thing happened, I have abstained from talking about it…you all know I'm a breezy fan, he is a great artist and in my opinion a better artist than Rihianna …but with that said I have never and will never condone a man raising his hands on a woman….its' the most cowardly thing ever….one of the reasons I don't talk about it much is cos my parents had a very physical and I mean tear the house apart marriage…I will never forget the very last day they fought and my mum left and never came back….that memory is etched permanently in my brain, where I have been able to repress most of my childhood memories, that one won't go…. I should tell you the actual occurrence but that will be too long (I love both my parents die btw, they can do no wrong in my eyes)….maybe some other day…..anyhooo, so my friend on her fb had put up a post (btw can I add that it was from a no-name magazine) that had what it called the full details of what Chris Brown did and goes that's why she will always hate Breezy….. I'm like a year later, please drop this issue, there are women living this daily (my point being focus on the issue than on this particular incident)….and she goes on to tell me how disappointed she is in me for making light of the issue, she hates cruelty of every kind, she doesn't know anybody that has done that, and if she did she will never talk to them, her parents taught her to respect and love herself and not take anything from anyone……
This is my take….Breezy was in every sense of the word lucky ….and I say this because, the one time he hits her, it came out in public, he might think it ruined his life…but I say it saved him, cos he has had to deal with it, I bet u a million dollars, the possibility he will ever do this again is ZERO ….so people who keep saying they can't forgive him or they hate him…what happened to your Christian nature?….to err is human, to forgive is divine….
Females: before you all act like you independent and no man can do this and do that…. I implore you to learn to be calm….scenario (like a typical naija movie)….woman shouts "you this impotent man, you can't do this and you can't do that, you must kill me now o, we will enter the same pant" ...you get a slap and it starts a fight…. Lets remove that foolishness from our behaviors, there is only so much prodding and pressing buttons a man can take before he lashes out…yes there are some men that are just possessed, and have that controlling thing in them….it's why it's so important to know who you marry, please take your time, choose carefully, God forbid any female who reads this today is ever married to such a man….
Males: walk away, walk away…. It's really that simple, if not for yourself, for your children….learn to control yourself, and realize that your partner is not your property (yes, you paid bride price, and then what?) likewise don't marry a nagging woman….if you are the jealous type, you need to let any female you with know, what ticks you off and makes you jealous….and if you know you have serious anger issues, please deal with them before you marry someone…..
For those of us who are so concerned about abused women/children….don't sit down and talk about it, do something… become an advocate, go talk to them hear their stories, and while you are at it, listen to the stories of the abusive person....there are two sides to every story ….I especially want you to sit down and talk to women, who through it all, stayed and now they are enjoying their marriage (I'm not encouraging you to stay o)….I'm just saying let's stop being so judgmental, casting people into hell, forgetting that we all make mistakes, some worse than others and though you don't forget at least forgive
One of my fav artists in the world is Lagbaja….especially for the first song you are about to hear …..P.S. Miss Tayne Ment, I think you might have been right J ….enjoy guys
Never Far Away – for those in LDR's I'm sure you can relate
Feyin E – Put a smile on your face no matter condition
Skentele Skontolo – Never been more proud of my Native attire
Wishing you a great week guys, my exam is on Sunday….wish me luck, I hate applying for schools…so freaking long…..
P.S. I LOVE YOU

I think and I worry too much….I hate that I do that….although I haven't been so stressed in a while and I'm glad for that
Been very happy lately and I just knew that when I crashed it will be bad, today is that day….nothing happened, absolutely nothing too
My mum would say that's how the devil steals your joy and she's probably right
Hope the cough syrup I just took will knock me out real soon and by morning all will be well in my world
I need to go out more….I don't think it's normal for a 23yr old girl to not have gone out but once this year
Thing is my idea of going out, is travel to another country or state….no more clubbing… but fun stuff doesn't have to be at night either
Maybe this school idea is not so bad after all…..Only if I go to school and not work that way I can travel and stuff
I hate unreliable people….it drives me insane….every time I say this, people go "and you want to go to Nigeria?" sad
I have never seen myself in a wedding gown; I have envisioned myself pregnant, barefoot, looking pretty in a black flowing dress
Never seen myself in a wedding gown tho, but I see myself married…ummm who knows or at this rate cares?
Everybody can like to free this issue, not all females have that gene… my aunties have been in my mum's ear & thus she's telling me shit I don't want to hear
My best friend said her Ideal man has properties from like the 3 diff guys she's liked….I'm so opposite
My ideal man is the man I like at the moment….once it's over, he no longer ceases to be, infact he has nothing I'm looking for…does that make sense?
I want to do so much….so much..... I pray for some direction, babes are not getting any younger…. now is the time to rule the world, no?
Nways I think the meds are kicking in…. is this like the shortest post I've ever written?….no, I think there has been one before
Happy Easter……Thank God for he has risen and even death could not hold him captive….Hallelujah unto the Most High….
You don't have to comment….I understand that this is totally bull
P.S I Love you
