What I Did Last Weekend?

After I wrote and sent my last post, I remembered that there was something I wanted to add but I couldn’t remember until this morning.

I went for the 2nd edition of the Lagos MakeUp Fair last weekend. It was so much fun. I met SisiYemmie. She’s so beautiful. I won a bag of stuff from Sleek.

When I went on stage, the MC lady said that I look like an ‘efiko’  and my sister said that people behind her said I look like an efiko. How do efiko(s) look? I don’t understand.

Anyway, I just hope there are no random pictures of me flying around the internet.

I’m excited about Season 3 of Suits and Season 2 of Newsroom coming out in July. Can’t wait. I need to start Desperate Housewives and Secret Life of the American Teenager again. I can’t remember where I stopped.

The internet is a bad thing. I spend like all my time downloading ebooks. On Kobo, I have like 20 unread books and I keep downloading. On my phone, there are like 150 books I haven’t read. And I’m not exaggerating. I have 2 paper books that I haven’t read yet. There’s just so little time and so many things to do and places to go.

I’m so behind on my devotional plans. I feel bad. Every time, I’ll say: ‘okay, I’ll read today” and then I spend all my time on Goodreads or reading a book. Or on Twitter. Then it’s 9/10/11pm and then I’m sleepy. Go to my bible app and sleep off reading it. Then I wake up the next day and feel terrible then do it all over again.

I watched Life of Pi. It wasn’t a boring movie but I feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life.

Friday is the first graduation ceremony at my secondary school since I graduated. I have to go because I’m doing someone’s makeup. The problem is if I should stay. Decisions decisions.

I want to do this thing on my blog where I’ll pick a topic and two people will write posts about the topic. One post would be in support, the other post would oppose. Like a debate

On another note, thanks for taking 5/10 minutes of your time and reading this blog. I really appreciate it 😀

An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word
cheers him up.

Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.

Grace and Peace





Sidenote: In the school, in 1st term of SS1, everybody has to do all the subjects then you do a personality test. At the end of term, school advises you on what do do based on the results of those tests.
I loooooove physics. And I wanted to be a science student but I hated Chemistry (Biology is compulsory so I had no choice). Chemistry is the most irritating subject right after Biology. Then Government. I also liked Commerce but the notes were too long. Now that I think of it, I should have done physics, even if it was just for the fun of it. I like numbers, I like calculations, and stuff like that. My favourite subjects were: Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Ironically, another subject I love is Literature. I like writing, I like words. I like to think and use my mind. Understand what I read. I love books.
Point is, I’m getting into uni soon and I’m still undecided on what I really want to do.
Sure, I know I want to study psychology and BE a psychologist. But there are so many other things I want to do. I want to teach children/teenagers(especially math or something). I want to motivate people. I also (want to) own a (successful) company. In school, a lot of guys said: ‘Lade, you’re just a confused person.’ But really I am. So many things I want to do, so little time.
Life IS short. I hope I can do everything I want to do

Have A Lovely Day 🙂


I graduated from secondary school last month(July 6th). I couldn’t upload any pictures because I didn’t have any because my phone crashed.
I was able to get some from other people.
July 6: Graduation From School
First, we had breakfast with our director(proprietress(?), principal, VP and teachers.
Then we went to change into our white(lace or whatever) and our gele and cap. we wear ‘trad’ for our grad in the school.
Then we took the group picture. Everybody with director and principal.
Then we proceeded into the hall. Then speeches. Then Bible Presentation they do this every grad. Then presentation of awards and prizes. Then announcement of Valedictorian. The guy got cash awards and shii. PTA also gave him an award: the new iPad with his name inscribed.

It was fun except that my phone crashed. I saw a lot of old friends. Guys I hadn’t seen in years.

Have A Lovely Day 🙂


I actually don’t have anything to post today. I just realized that my last post was almost 2 weeks ago.

We have had no light since the 3rd of this month. Not for one second. In happier news, some of my friends graduated from SEF on the 7th. Congratulations to all of you. And I wish you guys good success in future. Made me think of my own graduation which is next month. Very excited.

I went for my NECO French Oral exam on the 6th. It was funny. The people. The environment. Everything. I can’t go into details for certain reasons. The most interesting part of it all was that I almost punched someone in the face(not a student of my school). It was my teacher’s presence that stopped me. I’m a generally calm person but I was hot, hungry and tired. We got there by like 8:30am and didn’t leave till after 4. And schools that got there after us left before us. Then the girl was giving me attitude and I had never seen/met her before then. I was just irritated.

Why do humans like focusing on the negative things. You do everything most things right and no one says anything or commends you but when you make one mistake. Very minute, small, tiny mistake and they all forget the good things and start disturbing you because of the mistake.

Then is it normal for people to measure how high the heel of a shoe is(with a ruler, in the shop) before buying the shoe. Do people do this?

Oh and there have been many posts and comments on the BBA slap. I haven’t seen it so I don’t really know what happened but I’ll just say this: “women are always hiding behind “a gentleman doesn’t hit a lady”. First, who made the rule? Second, who told you all men are gentleman. Some women just overdo ish. In my opinion there’s no big deal in the slap. She asked for it. You shouldn’t be making people angry and saying: “a gentleman doesn’t hit a lady”. If it was a girl, she would have slapped the Zainab girl too and nothing would have happened. Who says a girl can’t beat someone up as much as a guy and who says a girl can’t beat up a guy. Just stay in your lane and respect yourself. “a guy shouldn’t hit a lady” is trash. Double standard. Stay in your lane. Respect yourself. Whether it’s a guy or a girl. Keep calm. Don’t underrate people. Everyone should have self control.

Actually, the main point of this post is/was to apologize for not posting anything the past 2 Saturdays. I’m sorry.

I wanted to do another 30 day challenge. Seeing as I didn’t complete the first one but now I’m not so sure. Should I? Should I not?

Yeah and if you’d like to write for this blog or you know someone who writes please send an email to ltawaq@gmail.com

Hello people 😀

Disclaimer: I don’t know the point of this post

I finished my exams on Wednesday. So I tweeted that I had just finished my exams. Then I saw one tweet: “over 14k tweets and just finishing WAEC and people will wonder why they fail.” When I saw that tweet I was just like “What?! Are you kidding me.” I don’t get it. Why do people think that success in exams/tests and using the internet are closely related. For the record, I think I do well enough in school.

So today, my mum took me to the bank to teach me how to withdraw money from an ATM. So we were there and this guy comes and starts shouting: “you aren’t doing it properly”. In my mind I’m like “nigga what?” You’re standing like 2 feet away from us. How the hell do you know what we are doing. He now starts shouting at my mum that why is she teaching me and that is she just teaching me bla bla bla? When we got into the car mumsi said: “man yi, o le ma na iyawo e ni le”. [Translation: this man can beat his wife]
She now said: “or he may be a thief”. it was funny when she said it
