Are my truths the same as yours?

Of course it was FICTION!.

Come on guys, i'm many things but i am not stupid enough to say that i want something to be kept a secret and i put it up on my blog. I mean i know i'm not Linda Ikeji, but i do know that people read my blog more than i ever assume.

My dad reads my blog, so does his friends. My ex knows the blog and if not his "best friends" would have showed him and he definitely knows where i live enough to come get his baby.

With that said, It has been the most fun thing that i have done in forever. Lol. My cousin is in town to deliver her baby(more on this later), so it inspired me to come up with this and seeing that my situation with the ex was public knowledge it was so easy and made sense. The trick was to do it a week ahead otherwise everyone would have clocked that it was April Fools. and it worked :)

Interestingly enough, most of you questioned it and that made me happy that you have gotten to know me well enough from my blog. So it was interesting that people i would have called friends actually believed it and more importantly thought that i won't tell them personally but then come put it on my blog.

 The bbms, text, calls, asking for proof to see my tummy (like it would show anything, lol) was amazing. I made some people cry, scream, be jealous (lol), happy and sad. Folks that i didn't think still read the blog came out of the wood works (Hi Roc :*) Again can i just say that i am quite loved and i love you all so very much.

On the flipside, i was told that i like attention and i won't go into how this had nothing to do with that and this is one of the reasons why closing this blog seems to be around the corner. And then the people that were to happy to see me "ashamed", lol. All in all, i have heard of people doing this a lot, and i don't think i'm a funny person, so was kinda just glad that it was successful.

So of course i cannot prove that i am not pregnant, except you won't see any baby in 6 months. Someone suggested that people will think i gave it up and or aborted it. O well. If you know nothing about me, know that if and when i do have a baby, i will be keeping him, no matter the circumstances. So can i ask that if you told anyone, please tell them that it is fiction, lol.

Some truths tho...

There is strength in abortion, giving up a baby and or choosing to raise a baby.

Use a condom or be on the pill. Especially when you are messing around with someone you know there is not future with it. I won't tell you to be celibate, that is a path i have chosen, but it means protect yourself. Thankfully, i have an ex, that even tho it is not in his plan, would have done the "responsible" thing. The hope is that your partner is joyous about you having his baby, not anyone but you and not him doing the responsible thing and loving the kid, tho not wanting to see your face.

You really are awesome people. Your support surprises me, your love is amazing, i sincerely thank God for every most (lol) every one of you. God will bless you and continue to really favor you in all that you do.

So its official, APRIL FOOL's. I GOT YOU :)

P.S I LOVE YOU. Here's to a great month of April. Celebrate!

3 months along....

Doctor confirmed,

Its a strange feeling i tell you. I mean i would have never guessed it, even though i was fully aware when it went down. I wanted it, i just had to experience it you know and who better than with a man i loved and had hoped for a future with.

Reality is setting in, i may not show (just like mama) but i see the changes. Been working out furiously, bye bye starbucks caramel macchiato and marble loaf cake. Does explain the cravings tho, i'm told not to think i need to eat for two, just healthier..

Told no one, except the best friend. If not for school, woulda moved back to hers, will need some care. Never telling him, its my prerogative. And if he finds out, i deny it. Its really that simple, no one can find me in my house. About to tell the sibs, they should know, but the folks? NO way in hell, till its here..

So 6months to go.... Not a fan of September tho - October & December are the only -ember months i like. Maybe hold on till October.

Good News and bad news, this is. Scratch that, i can only see the good in this. Explains why i have been happy all year, despite the hardships along the way.

Here's a toast. CELEBRATE!!!

P.S I Love You

Praise Wednesday - Bible Passage

Romans 12:6-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.
7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well.
8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
9 Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.
10 Love each other with genuine affection,[a] and take delight in honoring each other. 11 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.[b]
12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
13 When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.
15 Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.
16 Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
17 Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable.
18 Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.
19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,”[c] says the LORD.
20 Instead, “If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.”[d]
21 Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.


------May The Lord bless the reading of his word and help us in Jesus Name. God bless you and have a great day and rest of the week.

P.S I Love You

Blithed Roses - Surprise!

Sorry for the break in transmission guys.... Let's get back to it.. Will aim for every week until its finished.

*********************************

"Are you okay? You look like you saw a ghost?" Nick asked

"Yes, i'm fine. I have to leave though. I had plans with a friend of mine today and i really don't want to change my plans".

A little deflated, Nick did not immediately reply, by passing her to walk back into the bedroom. He picked up his phone, saw the missed call by Lisa, but thought nothing of it. He had been expecting her call, it was time for him to get back on the road promoting his books, and Lisa was in charge of his image as it were.

"Nick?"
"Hmmm, sorry. I really would love to spend the day with you, you know. I'm leaving California soon."

Now it was Blythe's turn to feel sad. "Well, i will miss you and it was nice knowing you." responding nonchalantly.
"Quit with the attitude?" Nick replied.
"Excuse you?"
"You heard me. I said quit the attitude"

Blythe could not think of an appropriate response.
"I'm sorry. It's just that i know i messed up and you could cut me some slack for it."
"I truly have to go Nick. I can't get out of this today, i promised a friend and ..."
Interrupting.. "Can i come back tonight?. I promise, we will just talk and have dinner, i could cook."
"You don't have to do that."
"Actually i want to, two weeks of hotel food is about as much as i can handle. Is 7 fine? I'll buy whatever i need.
"7 is fine, but before you go buying stuff, how about you check the fridge and pantry and make sure i don't have everything? I'm pretty well stocked."

Nick proceeded to go through the kitchen and search the pantry, fridge and freezer. He was not sure what he was going to cook.
Screaming, not realizing that Blythe followed him into the kitchen, he continued talking to her.
"Sounds great, so where are you going to, that won't see you spending the day with me?. Oh! there you are"
"Yoga with the best-friend and baby shopping for the other best-friend. She's having a baby girl."
"Sounds like fun. And i would join you, but, three's company"..
Blythe laughed "See you tonight then. Did you find something good?
"Yea, like you said you are pretty stocked. You really weren't planning a party?
Again she laughed, "My friends and family usually drop by unannounced to say hi, even though i know its really to eat, so i try to stay prepared.'
"Gotcha ya, shall we?"

They walked out together, both silent in thoughts. Blythe wanted to ask about Lisa, but would she say? - "So Lisa huh? what a small world, that's the bitch who stole my man." She couldn't very well do that, and she really didn't think there was a future here anyways, what, with him leaving California soon.
Nick was thinking of dinner.

Blythe had such a good day, she forgot about Lisa and Nick. She had thought about telling Tina about Nick, but what was there to tell, so she put her mind on yoga and shopping for Simi's baby, which turned out to be more fun than she had anticipated. Simi's little girl was going to be the most gorgeous baby girl in the world. It was not until she was on her way back, she realized she had a "date", at least that's what she was calling it. She was going to go home and put some effort into looking good.

Nothing like tasty food, wine, and a handsome man to have stimulating conversation with. Or, so she thought!!

********
Nick forgot about calling Lisa back, thinking about his dinner plans with Blythe. He was also thinking about the future. He still lived in Detroit, something most people did not understand since he became famous. He loved his home and did not see himself moving to California and he could not very well ask her to move could he? He was deep in thought when he heard someone shout out at his name "Nick". Assuming that there was some other Nick in the lobby, he continued walking on, he didn't know anyone at the hotel after all.
"Nick Downey" he heard, causing him to stop abruptly then turn around.
It was none other than his agent Lisa.
"What the hell are you doing here?"
"Why the hell, didn't you pick up the phone and making me come out here?" She replied
Hugging her, he replied "I've been otherwise occupied. Its so good to see you, i was meaning to stop by".
"Yes, you should have. Its good to see you, i was getting worried that you might be laying in waste here".
"Au contraire, so tell me why are you here?"
"I got a call a couple days ago from a reporter, saying someone spotted you at a winery with a woman, and they wanted details. I tried calling you to find out what that was about and when you didn't pick up your phone, i had to come find out myself."
"Amazing! There's really no privacy in this business is there? Is there a way to kill this before it runs, i would really hate to start a relationship this way."
"Oh!"
"Shit! I didn't mean that, its not a relationship, i mean i don't know what it is, i just don't want to put that on her."
"Wow! The most eligible bachelor in Detroit, is officially out the books".
"Oh quit it. What are you doing this evening? i plan to cook for her and you could stop by later on. I mean its nothing serious, but i would like for you to meet her and tell me what you think. You can come under the pretense of work you know"
"You don't have to ask me twice. Just text me the address and time and i will be there. Make an extra plate, would you".
"Thanks Lisa, you look gorgeous by the way. The man treating you right"
Responding with mixed emotions "Yea, Drake tries, but you know this is all me. Thanks Nick, see you soon, can't wait to meet this girl. What's her name?"
"Not telling you, so you don't have that knowing expression on your face when i introduce her to you"
"You are silly Nick, walk me to my car would you? I'll work on the reporter and then we have to really talk about the book tour"

Music Monday.... Is falling out of love enough reason?

"The illusion of effortlessness requires a great effort indeed"............ This quote best describes me in more ways than one.

Hi everyone. How are you doing? Hope you had a great weekend. Wishing you a great week ahead.

5 more days till i have to turn in my paper to my professor, who i bet is going to rip it apart and make me change. Sigh it is well, especially cos i ain't done shit. The next couple days are about to be looooong.

Nways i don't have much to report. Just hanging in there. My boobs are bigger which is cool, but i feel the need to wear a bra now. I'm afraid that my standing boobs will drop, if it continues to get bigger and i don't start supporting it now. I doubt it will get much bigger sha.

March Madness begins - I have Michigan State winning it all. Which none of my Michigan peeps, must see btw. I just don't believe in us, even tho we are # 4, but i stay supporting. Now if this were football, ehen, we would be winning it all.

Can't still believe Peyton Manning was cut by the Colts and Brandon Jacob by the Giants. Its a madness. Arsenal better win their game today.

Congratulations to all my medical school graduates who got matched today, with great jobs. Using it as a point of contact of the medical school students on blogger and everyone who is believing God for one thing or the other, we will celebrate with you soon in Jesus Name.

Nways the sun is out and the american in me has me dressed in a sheer top, sweater, short skirt and heels. I tell you, there is nobody who does it better than me in looking good, even when everything around her is falling apart.

My dad's wife is trying to reach out. She added me on bbm (This is my sister's fault btw). I'm afraid. Lol.

Shout-out to ex's that stay taking care of me. Which reminds me i want starbucks gift card, pretty please. Thanks in advance.

Which reminds me. I did not "fall in" love. I walked, eyes opened and chose to love. I however need to "fall out" of love. I envy people that seem to be able to do that fast.

How will that work in a marriage tho? Is falling out of love enough reason to leave a marriage, let's say of 5years and one kid (just an example), you can use any other scenario to explain your reasoning.

I can't understand how a guy likes a girl enough to spend ridiculous amount on her, but still not want to be with her. He's single, no issues, nothing. It really makes no sense to me. I guess if money is not an issue for him, he doesn't really see it as spending money.

I hurt my neck really bad this morning. Can't turn it.

Church is as much a business as anything else. Its the Grace of God, to remember that that's not all it is, is all.

Ok that's about it. Enjoy the songs....

Couldn't wait till Wednesday to play this song. I have played it a 100 times(not exaggerating) between yesterday and today. Even when i was sad enough to not sing it out, i moved my body along. It is well.


So, i wasn't really impressed with Asa's first album and this was one of the songs i did not like. This remix however, I LOVE. Absolutely love Ife's voice and he just gave this song life. I played him on the show (Weplug10) on Saturday. He is my pick of the week and will have him to talk on the show soon. Excited.

I had the pleasure of reviewing his album, which you should def read here. One of the best albums of 2012 yet, and if you are in Austin, he performs most everyday at SXSW and i think you will not regret it. The album came out today, so you ought to cop it.

And just had to end it with my boy. I really like this song, and i don't have to hype it cos its quite good.
Nways. that's it. Peace.

P.S I Love You.

Praise Wednesday - It's A Lie To Think That You Aren't Good Enough


My best friend "J" sent me this a couple days back. Some of you might have seen it. Watching this again and i am inspired to be great. To being the best that i can be, to try my hardest. To defeat my flesh and overcome through it all.

You are the only one able to limit yourself. As children of The Most High, he has given us all that we need to be successful and happy in this life. Let's key into our destiny with faith and no iota of doubt, that God who is able and just to do all that we can ever hope and imagine, will do great and mighty things in your lives. We will celebrate your victories together this year in Jesus Name.

Have a blessed rest of the week. Muah

P.S I Love You

Should i tell my parents?

Hi everyone. How you doing? Hope its been a good day so far and hope you had a great weekend. Wishing you even more good things for the rest of the week. Taking a break from school work, which i have finally progressed on - yaaaaay me :) to do this, then my wpgm post, then some more school work. Long day.....

Why do u reckon movie stars are on TV shows a lot lately? and i don't mean going from TV shows to movies, but the opposite? I don't reckon its the money. I like it though.

I love Lady Ngo's suggestion of Davids Bridal $99 dresses yo. Buy one i like, and go refix it. Yes Boss, serious music world famous. And ps, if you are feeling cheap. Just don't tell anybody. Collect 6k for ur dress, buy a 99 dollar dress, spend about 300 to refix it. Keep the rest in ur private account. :). Who produces the money for the dress btw?

So i told my best friend the above plan and she says i can't have a custom made dress for my less than 1k plan. So i have decided that i am going to find some new budding fashion designer and employ them to make my custom made dress. I was looking at David's bridal (see what you did LadyNgo?) and they don't have anything close, so this is the only way. I have two friends who would be happy to do this. The other option is to call up my fashion designer Aunty and tell her to call up one of her friends that owes her one and have them custom make it.

I told my mum about the whole thing sha and she said even if you are wearing rags, on your wedding day, all  eyes are on you, so no need to stress too much as long as you are beautiful and happy. She says a fortune should be spent on the ring tho. Lol

Thinking too much about my wedding dress oooo. HELP!!!

But all you women talking about you won't spend much on your wedding dress/ring. Show of hands(leave a comment,lol) how many of you have louboutins & jimmy choos & birkin (sp?) bags & rolex wristwatches et al?... You see, you have abi? Lol.

Met a guy with the most gorgeous eyes at the airport yesterday. He said i was gorgeous :-). He's called me twice today. He looks young. :(

The A Team is hilarious and still one of the best movies I've seen in recent years. Of course most of the world disagrees.

I hate bad service. Was so mad at FedEx on Friday, i could kill.

Got to give up coffee. Got to get the teeth pearly white. I don't think i can give up coffee.

Have i said this before? - I am an organ donor. I wonder if God forbid i die here, they will have to get permission from my parents and if i should tell them so they agree or will they have to return my body intact cos i am international?  Plus i want to be cremated. Do they do that in Nigeria?

There was a cute boy on the plane, on what appeared to be his first flight. The commentary was amusing.

One day i'll remember the movies i create in my sleep. It really pained me that i couldn't remember today's cos it seemed really special. Like i felt myself crying and laughing. One day i'll remember.

I don't think i've gotten a full nights rest in a long time. I mean i sleep, but my brain is fully functional. O well.

This lil girl had on them shoes that squished as she walked. So cute.

Starbucks marketing technique is in my opinion still the best in the world. I drove about 45mins, just to get to a starbucks (the first was full) because it has the best atmosphere to study and still relax and talk and dance & have fun. Plus observing people is my hobby and there's no better place to do it.

Finally heard my first Whitney song -salute- today. Sigh. Death be ashamed.

Dosh, said i sound happy. I am. Its not any easier, but trusting in God and because of you all i am happy, everyday. Thank you so much :)

Two years today. Good times.

Follow Conversationsabouther.blogspot.com and Wepluggoodmusic.com. - Thanks.

I think Mo'Cheddah is going to regret leaving KH and if not KH, definitely Klem. But this is my opinion.

My get rich plan is to get Oyinbo into the modelling business (beautiful + great body) and get Bold & Beautiful into advertisements (talks so well + gorgeous smile). I'll be their manager, get 30% of everything they make. Will be put in motion, before the year runs out. Trust me.

That's it guys. Probably the fastest post i've ever written from start to finish :)


P.S I Love You :*

More on the Ring or The Dress?

Hello Everyone, how we doing? Three months into the New Year already huh?! I thought February was slow, but i was wrong. March is here and that means that i have 15days to do my research and hopefully have it submitted by the end of the month. Talk about insane pressure right about now. Whew! On to less boring stuff.

Una too like gist. Ok i can't speak pidgin for the life of me, but my last random post, was my most read post in a long time. Over 300 people read it within 24hours, now i have to start thinking of funny random things to be telling you people. LOL. Thank you :* :* :* :*

So been in Michigan since Mon. 16hr trip yo, it was not even cool, but you do what you gats to do. Can't wait till when i can start making money enough to buy my plane ticket a day before i travel. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Its great to see the sis as usual and i get to see my brother when he comes in on Saturday before i leave :). My sis is officially taller than me, which makes me officially the shortest person in my house. Like i told my friends today, my husband must be 6'5. Ko jo men.

So i'm not sure why people think i have a British accent and or i lived in England. I Love it.

So my dad is funny. Remember i told you that he told me that all the clothes i wore in Nigeria were akisa(rags). So he called me to tell me, that he needs my measurements because he wants to have someone sew clothes for me. I'm 25yrs old tori Olorun.

Even funnier, he then called me to tell me that he met my brother's friend in Nigeria and their family and that his spirit was moved that she will be a good wife and so i should encourage my brother. I laughed so hard. I told my brother and he said i should get away "instead of him to send me money, he is giving me story". Lol.

Speaking of my brother, he is the opposite of me. I'm the one into all this extra stuff, but still manages to stay anti-social. He is the quiet one, that everybody seems to know. He is like so popular in school, in the different clubs et al. He is on his Alternative Spring break, where he is helping build and paint and all that in New Orleans.

Nways, his cute Arab friend, lets call him "L" has been chauffeuring me and the sis all week and before i met him, the first thing my sis says to me is "Don't talk to him, don't look at him, cos if you make him like you, i will kill you". Can you imagine?

Speaking of friends, in undergrad it was a group of us 4. We were a tight knit family and every-time i'm in town, i make sure to see them bar the one who is out of the country. Met up with the two who still stay here for dinner today and some other friends and it was fun, just talking over food. I somehow manage to crack them up still.

Have you all seen the movie 127hours? I keep wondering if i could really do that given the choice. I think the only way i might go the extra mile in such a situation is if i have kids.

O so, i'm randomly watching a wedding show (don't ask) and most of the girls are looking at dresses in the 2k range. So i call my best-friend and go "Is 2k for a dress not too much?" And she tells me no and that it is cheap, mentioning some people who we know together who spent much more than that like 6k - 8k. So then i call back to ask her how much the ring should be "I don't know, like 1k+. So this is my theory, does it make sense to spend more for the dress that you wear only once, than for the ring, that you have all your life.? It seems rather stupid to me.

My dress is going to be convert-able, so its short for the reception cos my only assets are my legs and i want to show it off. All this covering for engagement and wedding is loooong.

I think Christians need to be really cognizant of the fact that as long as you proclaim the name of God, you are being judged, by what you say and do. We are not perfect, but we shouldn't let people think they don't want to be Christians from knowing us.

12pounds to go :)... It's hard finding non - carbohydate foods to eat.

Blithed Roses - Next Week. You have my word - will finish this book, by cook or by cranny.

Have i mentioned how any drop of alcohol gives me a headache? So sad. But i'm realizing how sensitive my body is and i'm afraid yo, cos i'm going to have kids and my body really hates pain. Like wrapping my hair/wearing hairnet gives me a headache. My sister and i were doing my hair yesterday and the pain was unbearable, the entire time ( i reneged on my never doing braids/weave btw) and all over my body in general. Not cool.

One year anniversary next month. Time flies.

Nways that's it people. I pray you are blessed this month of March. May all your dreams come true.

P.S I Love You :)
