Revisiting Ground Zero: The Second Break Up (pt.5)

Who else agrees that breakups are hard? Gosh, I've gotten my heart broken a few times but nothing compared to this one. In The Scare (Revisiting Ground Zero pt.4), the story ended with Fisayo telling me to get out of his car, after he discovered I shared with a dear friend of mine that I may have contracted an std. So that night I entered my apartment, and told my friend who was visiting what happened, that Fisayo just broke up with me. She couldn't believe it; she had only met Fisayo as she came to spend some time with me. She liked him, and their personalities clicked. She was shocked that I just went from meet my boyfriend to we are no longer together. She tried to get the story of what h

Cohabitation: Yay or Nah?

I love watching Talk Shows; I can watch interviews for days. I love hearing people’s different opinions on different issues. Someone recently referred to me as Christian Amanpour (The famous CNN anchor), which was a compliment if you ask me (haha). One of my dreams is to become a contributor on one of these shows or at least a News website. Becca Tapert- unsplash.com I was watching a talk show one day, and a viewer called in, asking if it was wrong to keep a secret account away from your partner. They live together but are not married. They also have a joint account where they keep their finances, but she opened separate savings account that he doesn't know about. The talk show hosts answere

Let's Talk About Forgiveness

Hello beautiful people! Let’s talk Nation is back with a not so popular topic called Forgiveness. Forgiveness I believe is easier to do, when someone steps on your toes by mistake, forgets to ask your permission for something, or unintentionally leaves you out on something that you would have loved to be a part of. When the person apologizes, it is straightforward for you to say “its ok," or “it’s no big deal," even if you may be a little bit disappointed. Well, today I am not talking about the little things, but the big things. Can you forgive when someone steals from you, slanders you or unimaginably betrays you? What does the Bible say about forgiveness? Is there a limit to forgiveness? A

The Titus 1 Test

13 Qualities Your Potential Spouse Should Possess Before You Say I Do Remember when you were in high school and chemistry was one of those annoying courses you had to take? that was one of my worse subjects. Looking back, I wander why it was so hard for me. Okay in chemistry, in order for you to find out if a solution was acidic or basic, you carried out a litmus test where a red or blue litmus paper is inserted into a solution. If the blue litmus paper turned red during a test, then the solution was considered acidic. If a red litmus paper turned blue, then the solution was considered basic. Today, I introduce a new test called The Titus 1 Test, (part one of The Titus Test) although not us

Revisiting Ground Zero: The Scare (pt.4)

I never thought I would find myself in this situation; sexually transmitted disease , was something I learned about in biology class or watched in movies or read about in blogs. I never thought that I would one day worry if I was clean or not. Dating Fisayo came with a lot of mess. It was like walking on eggshells all the time. I did not know what mood I was going to catch him in each time. Would he be happy, mad or sad? Will he go off on me about something I did or didn’t do? I held on to whatever was left in our relationship, just to say I had a boyfriend. I was living in fear and needed to break out of the relationship.

Happy Mother's Day: A Tribute To My Mother

In the spirit of mother's day, I decided to write a short tribute to my mother. She passed away nine years ago. I never thought in a million years that I would lose my mother. I felt like Job in the bible, who lamented, "the thing I feared the most has come upon me." I was so scared of death growing up, that the thought of losing anyone I loved was devastating to me. I also grew up with death happening in my family. My mother lost three siblings within the space of 6 years. So that instilled a lot of fear in me, as a child. Mom and Dad in South Korea In 2009, I had a longing to go home for the summer break. Usually, my parents took turns to come to the US each year to visit my brother and me

Movie with a Message: Dr Strange

Lately, I started watching movies with a little more intent, searching out the underlying message it carries. The film doesn't necessarily have to be faith-based, I take the lessons from it and apply it to my life as I go on this journey to realize my purpose. Now that doesn't mean I watch everything that is thrown my way; I am still very selective about the kinds of entertainment I consume. Movies like Black Panther touch on social injustices and slavery, while films like Wonder Woman, empower women by showing them that they have the power to fight for a cause they believe in. This takes me back to a scene in Justice League, where wonder woman came to rescue some children, and the bad guys

Year 1 in Nigeria

I can't believe it has been a year since I moved back to Nigeria, and what a year it has been. I always thought moving back home after 12 years of living abroad was going to be a struggle. Would I fit in? Would I be able to drive there? How about my shows and movies? Those were legit questions! I am sure if you are an avid reader of my blog, you will be able to tell that I love movies. I lived less than 5 minutes away from the movie theater when I lived in the US. So trust that any movie that came out, that I was interested in, I was at the theater, front line, and center. I remember one time, (and I am sad to admit this) that two movies came out that I loved and I wanted to see them both in
