Mission Impossible?

I'm on a mission to update my blog list with as many blogs as possible, Nigerian and non-Nigerian blogs alike. It would greatly help in an upcoming "project" i have planned. So if u read this blog and don't see ur blog on my bloglist, please leave a comment, even if it's just to say hi. Shukran!

I have found myself questioning my motives for blogging (once again!). I am one of those people who like to do something for a reason. I like to have a purpose, i don't do something just cos everyone is doing it, therefore i have to do it. That's why i know that i would probably never be on twitter. Who really gives a shit about what i'm doing anyway?! That's a rant for another day.

Anyhoodle, i think my original purpose for blogging no longer exists. I have never been happier, my life is exactly where i want it to be, i understand myself a lot better than i did 2 years ago when i first started blogging and all that good stuff.

So i've had to ask myself (once again) why i am still blogging. What's my story? What's my purpose? On The Smile of a Nigerian Scorpio as it exists, there has ceased to be a story or a purpose. People who have followed me since 2007, have seen me be depressed, seek therapy, have boyfriend issues; bad boyfriends, 419 boyfriends, abusive boyfriends, have friends issues, have Mommy issues, have MCAT/Med school admission issues, gain admission into Med school, have work issues, enjoyed my little stories about my hospital job, got to meet Lenie aka the love of my life, blah blah and blah blah. What's left?

When i leave ATL in August, it would be the start of a new life for me. I do not know a single soul out there or even in surrounding states. I can re-invent myself (ahem), become a reloaded version of Sting (yeah right! I'll always be me). Do i say goodbye to blogsville or do i continue this chapter of my life with u guys? I don't know the answer to that right now, i'm still thinking.


  1. first things first...
    furrsttt ..!!

  2. you just reminded me of the inevitable...leaving blogsville..
    theres always the need for direction whenever one is doing directions are change-able..hope you come out with the best decision after ur evaluation..

  3. please don't leave *groveling at your feet* please stay! not for therapy but just to keep your blogville family updated on the progress of your now perfect life!

  4. Don't you dare leave me Sting! We're in this together.

  9. Just discovered your blog after looking at my youtube stats. And I see you like that video I posted of dem Naija guys spoofing Who wants to be a of the funniest Naija skits I've seen eva. Glad you've helped spread it out :)

    But I don go through your list of blogs well well. And no luv for at all at all lol

    Anyhow, nothing spoil. Just wanted to say I like your blog and I'll be checking it out.


  10. so good to hear everything is going great for u..... u cant leave blogville o.... thats like deserting old friends who's always have ur back! so lady, better stay!!!!!!! but its ur decision, its ur happiness that matters...... Heres to new beginnings in August for u!

  11. If you're asking us if you should go or not, you obviously don't want to go anywhere, cos it's not like we'll be like, 'be going now, we didn't want you here in the first place'. LOL.

    But you can always reinvent your blog, and make it represent what you want it to represent at the time in question. You get...

  12. I am glad you love where you are now. It's good to know you are no longer depressed. Don't go pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

  13. Awww! Regardless of what we write and all the convencing in the word would not help your answer. It would be nice if you can stay, however, seasons change. I feel you though. My purpose at first for the blog was an outlet for me and what I was going really have nothing to say. I'm now encouraging others with their jounrey in relationship/singlehood, wifehood, and cooking and I find it very therputic (oops). So in the end, do you.

  14. plz add
