Valentine Day Special for the Guys

Have you guys ever wondered why women love chocolate or the connection between chocolate and romance?

Guys, since valentine's day is coming, i will let you in on the secret and when you get some, come back and thank me. You are welcome. I am paying thousands of dollars for this information that I am giving you for free. I know, I should be recommended for sainthood. 

So apparently chocolate contains something called Methylxanthines which amongst other things increases arousal, in both men and women but more in women. So you give a woman chocolate, she starts feeling feelings and has no clue what's going on and you are right in the vicinity to benefit from those feelings. Win-win situation for all. Now I am not talking about snickers o, I'm talking high quality chocolate, think Godiva and stuff. 

I am not making this up, it's all physiology. Google is your friend if you don't believe me. So guys, invest in some high quality chocolate this valentine's day.

What should we call med school and other stuff

This has actually happened to me at least 3-4 times when i ended up sleeping on the floor. Once i remember i was so tired, being dramatic and all, i collapsed on my kitchen floor and ended up waking 2 hours later. It was not my intention to fall asleep, I was just exhausted. Another time, i ended sleeping under my study table, after i bent down to pick up a piece of paper. I never made it back up. Believe me when i say, when you are tired, you will sleep anywhere.

I have written about the site before. I used to go there daily but not anymore. I went there just now and this cracked me up. A lot of the stuff on there is very accurate and it's nice to know a lot of med students feel the same way you do.


Double ouch!

Sweet Friends

After 15 yrs + the chocomilo still tastes as good as i remember it. I have been requesting for golden morn for yearsssssss. My sweet friend finally got me some :))) Hopefully, it's as good as i remember it.

Picture Sunday - I was bored/Tired

Din din....There's more banana than there's oatmeal. That's a plate of fish by the side and an orange. Dinner of champions who don't want to cook. Hahaha!
No point to this picture

My finger was trying to be naughty but i had to stop it

I want her skin color. I so want. I get a shade lighter in winter and i hate it. Although i don't think i am as dark as i would like to believe. Anyone know the opposite of bleaching that is not tanning? She is so beautiful.

This is true! 

Best of the week to you guys. Let's try not to suck this week. Special thanks to Sheila Ugo for coining "Just Passing Leave no comment Association". It cracked me the hell up.

I love you guys sha. You keep me entertained.

For my Yoruba and Igbo Readers

A rat's voicemail to a man, telling him he had to eat all his certificates and important papers etc just because the man ran out of Indomie noodles, the only food the rat normally feasts on.

4 Step program to Big girlhood

P.S Hope it made some of you laugh. I don't understand yoruba, but since i knew what the rat was saying it helped a bit.

I just realised i hate reading blogs about med school by med students. It stresses me out for some reason. Isn't that ironic. I hope this blog is not a "med school" blog.

Make the Jump

I just spent the last 3 hours in my bathroom, sitting in a corner, on a blanket with my notes. Why? It's the warmest place in the apartment. It's pretty cozy in there if i might add and conducive for studying.

I'm weird. I know.

I have a valentine's day special for the guys coming up. I know it might not be obvious by how frequently i blog, but i have never been so busy in my life. I am actually surprised i can still blog. 

In all things, we give thanks. Therefore, i remain thankful.

I wish i had someone to brush my teeth and wash my face for me. I just started taking the biotin today, i'll give my feed back in a month. I got before pictures and everything. Let's see what happens. Castor oil which i use daily hasn't really done much, so we'll see.

P.S. Hey new blog subscribers and to everyone who takes the time to comment on my posts. I thank you.

The rest of you, suck!

LOL..... but seriously, you do.

Just for today though.

Keep him or toss him?

You know he is a keeper if
  • He is a nice human being. He is nice to you and everyone else. He has good manners, is considerate and is not arrogant. Nothing annoys me more than to hear a female say she doesn't like a guy because he is too nice. That's a sign of immaturity on the girls part. You still have some growing up to do.
  • He wants you and is not afraid to show it. I always say that if a guy truly likes you, you will know. You won't have to call your friends to decipher what stuff means, he will give you his time and full attention and let you know he wants you. 
  • He shows you he cares about you. Your happiness is a major priority for him. He can't stand to see you hurting. He is your number one fan and he shows it. 
  • He inspires you to be better person.
  • He is never tired of being a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on. 
  • He understands that once a month you might become a raging beast or a crying emotional wreck and he holds your hand through it (That's if you let him)
  • You can respect him because he deserves it, not because he demands it.
  • He tolerates your crap.

You know you need to toss him if
  •  Your self esteem is less than what it was before you started dating him. 
  • You feel like you are losing your voice and no longer able to speak your opinions because you don't want him to be mad. 
  • He makes you cry regularly.
  • You can't be yourself around him. 
  • He makes you feel like you can't do better than him. 
  • He blows hot and cold. One day he loves you, the next day he treats you in a way only someone who hates you would. 
  • If it was your friend in the exact same relationship, you would tell her to leave
  • He can be really mean to you
  • He isolates you from your friends and loved one. Whether by stopping you from seeing them or telling anyone how bad things are. 
  • You are not sure where you stand in the relationship- He wants to keep things undefined
  • He introduces you as his friend after dating for over 6 months. You are what he says you are, a friend. You need to keep it moving. 
  • He is obsessive and jealous. Nip that shit in the bud. Those are the kind of men who end up killing their wives. 

Emotional abuse happens in a lot of relationships. It's just as bad as physical abuse. Ideally, being in  a relationship should build you as a human being, not tear you down. A lot of people don't talk about it, they just stay there and endure it hoping it gets better. It never does. If someone is emotionally abusive, it's a character flaw, those don't change. If it's not you, it will be someone else. That's just how they operate. They might not even think they are being abusive but you are on the receiving end, and you know how they make you feel. It's never going to change. If you are not married, walk away while it's still easy.

You are in a relationship where you are not comfortable, you can't speak you mind, you have to be careful what you say, how you say it, who you talk to, when you talk to them, how you comport yourself in public etc etc...there's no way you would be happy and life is too short to live like that. Our ultimate goal in this life should be happiness. You only have one life to live, be happy. Find a partner who would build you up and would be your best friend, not your body guard or police, or jail keeper.

My First Love......

I have missed Wande Coal In case u were wondering, Banky W. is my second love. Well....he's been number 1 for a while since Wande disappeared on me.

The Number one reason marriages end..... lack of sex. They can cover it up with other stuff but it all boils down to lack of sex or poor sex lives. Don't quote me, we were talking about viagra today and that's what the doctor said.

So married people, save your marriages and have more sex.
Unmarried people practice for marriage and have more sex.
If you are saving yourself for marriage, then please consider me the little red devil on your left shoulder and don't listen to me but when you get married, remember what i said........

 You can all thank me later by collecting money to buy me a Jet. 

P.S Erectile dysfunction is just a nice way of saying someone is impotent. It's all marketing, baby! You have erectile dysfunction, here's some viagra....No one wants to be labeled impotent.

Impotence- unable to engage in sexual intercourse because of inability to have and maintain an erection. 

Now we both know or maybe you already knew.

Are med student brainiacs?

I can't fucking sleep. I am so freaking annoyed. I want to be asleep, i need to be asleep right now. I am tired and exhausted and have to wake up early to get shit done.

I can't sleep. I am so annoyed. I want to be asleep, i need to be asleep right now. I am tired and exhausted and have to wake up early to get things done.

Version A or Version B....take your pick. Don't tell me cos i don't really care, just read the version that suits you. I like version A. It conveys my emotions better.

There was a beauty of the day on Linda's blog today or yesterday, not sure, who happens to be a med student. I was reading the comments and some people mentioned that med students were brainiacs while other's said you don't have to be smart to be a med student or not all med students are brainiacs. You get the gist. Both sides of the argument made me laugh. I didn't go to med school in naija so i don't know, but what i know is, even if you use corner corner to enter (in naija, i don't know about that in America), you have to be at least very hardworking to stay and not get kicked out. Med school is not beans.

So what do you guys think are med students smart or just hardworking (studious) or both? 
I personally think if you were smart but not hardworking, you wouldn't make it in med school. I'm sure there are exceptions, but regardless of what some people might want you to believe, everybody puts in the work. Med school is harddddddddddddddddddddddddd.............................. There's really no light at the end of the tunnel, until you are an attending and even then

Still not sleepy......Jesus why me? Mary, we need to talk. Please talk to your son.

P.S. I think brainiac is such a funny word. Nobody uses it here.

4 years

I can't believe it's been 4 years already..... Time flies.

Had no clue you helped Basketmouth get discovered. 
Death sha! 
You would have been doing great things now if you were still here. 
Still remember it's campus life on your radio dial 92.3 FM stereo
I always wanted you to shout me out on that radio show, 
but always forgot to ask. 

I still have your number saved on my phone
I can't bring myself to delete
You are still on my yahoo messenger, 
You never made it to skype.

Continue to rest in peace, Samson. 
You will never be forgotten. 

 ***Death is such a thief. We need to cherish life while we have it***

Things i learned (or re-learned this week) that i am dashing you guys for free.Tuition free. 
Apparently biotin is very good for hair ----
If you don't want to get fat (amongst other things) don't eat after 8pm because that's the time enzyme which makes cholesterol -HMG CoA reductase is most active.

All you hair people can test out the biotin one and let me know if there's any difference. I will certainly try it cos my hairline needs Jesus. It never recovered from some tight cornrows i did.

We were told by this funny Dr. that we shouldn't let people push/shove us anyhow (let's say we were walking in a crowd or something) because we are very expensive. All $200,000 worth of student loans. The way she said it was so funny.

Thanks to the people who commented on my last post, esp those who got my point. It wasn't about miracles but about people who don't tell the full story and mislead others.

Christians should stop deceiving other christians.............

......AKA don't allow yourself to be deceived.

 I was reading a facebook status message today where a lady shared that it was discovered her husband has very low sperm count and she really wants a baby. There were lots of advice which i didn't bother reading as i only wanted to see what the " facebook friend" who had commented wrote. As i was about to click off, i saw this advice "Sperm doesn't give children, God does, so continue to pray"

I was instantly annoyed. The first thing that came to my mind, was SPERM gives children, let's stop lying to ourselves. If your husband has very low sperm count, unless you want God to come down and impregnant you, without the use of "medicine", you will not be conceiving a child. Prayers alone are not going to put a baby in your uterus.

Can we stop lying to ourselves all in the name of religion. Women who have tried for years to have kids, all of a sudden, you see them with twins, instead of them to say the truth, they will go to church and thank God for their miracle babies that he so miraculously blessed them with. They will quietly skip all the fertility treatments they did. People who don't know better will be using them as a point of contact and waiting on the lord, not knowing they had help.

Two of my close friends right now are married to partners who are AS and they are also AS. One of them is currently pregnant.You can find out what the genotype of your baby is in utero which is what she did. You know why? Think elective abortion. If the baby is SS, some couples chose to abort until they have a baby who doesn't have the disease. Now people from the outside looking in, will see the AS:AS couple have three kids that are all AS or AA and decide to take a chance too, without knowing what they actually did. They will leave it in God's hands and pray. I have read many comments on blogs saying the exact thing, let God take control. I even told my friend, people will be using you as a example of why they should go ahead and marry an AS person if they are AS, as they might be lucky too with kids, as God will work his miracles. They won't know the truth. AS:AS couples also have the option of IVF, instead of taking a chance.

Point is these people don't come out and tell people the truth. They go to church, give testimonies of their miracles and people are deceived. I'm not saying miracles don't happen or the odds don't work in some people's favor cos it does but I have a problem with someone saying sperm doesn't bring children, God does except they mean God is going to come impregnate the person as in the case of Mary, then ok. Anything else, please carry yourself and your husband to the doctor AND pray, not just pray and don't go to the doctor. That is just foolishness to me.

My brother's tumblr is awesome. I should text him and let him know i really like it. I have found some really inspirational stuff on there. In case anyone was wondering, he is a runner. 5K and 10K - multiple times. Very selfish with the free t-shirts from his races (or whatever they are called). While i was volunteering to help set up for the AIDS walk in my city, my brother was running during the AIDS walk in his city. I was like, when did the AIDS walk become a run, but okay. Plus he likes to intimidate people with his six pack. Yeye fowl. This past holiday, he was complaining he now has a pot belly. I just rolled my eyes and told him to arrange himself. He is a good brother though and helps me with all my fat insecurities by telling me i'm not fat and sending me motivation to work out, which never happens. I still remember our one encounter on the tracks and how this boy almost killed me. I had to say he should leave to walk o. No be me kill Jesus. He then went on to run one whole hour on the track, non-stop. While i jejely jog-walked.

On that note, i bid you adieu. I have some rocks to cut but i have to sleep first.



Found a solution to my problem and all is (almost) well with the world. Time to put pen to paper again. I dusted off two of my journals. The smaller one is my "Dear God" journal. Uh hum. Last time i wrote in it was March 2012. Sometime during the year, we had a falling out. I still don't know how i feel about him right now, but i'm willing to try again. Baby steps.

So this blog will continue to host my usual brand of nonsense and my journals will hold the things that really matter. Solution found, everyone can breath a sigh of relief as i now have an outlet for my angst.

I'm going to walmart and it's raining....who wants to come?

I am freaking starving but have no appetite. First world problems.

 Why don't people like Toke Makinwa? I got someone to listen to her talk and he didn't find anything wrong with her accent. I get that it's put on but if she wants to talk like that, then that's her prerogative. She doesn't sound bad, the only issue i have really is her exaggerated mouth movements when she's speaking, but then again, na she get her mouth. I just don't understand why people seem to hate her. She's alright in my book.

I guess people generally don't like the idea of people putting on fake accents and being pretentious. Madonna keeps getting subs for her british accent. The last episode of modern family i watched, mentioned madonna and her accent. I think our Nigerian accent is really nice especially when it has a certain polish to it. I remember listening to Pastor Nkechi Ene (anyone know of her) when i was in Nigeria and just loving the way she spoke. She sounded totally Nigerian but very polished and sophisticated. I loved it. Which is why even though i have been out of Nigerian for 10 years, i never consciously tried or wanted to lose my Nigerian accent. Frankly, i'm too lazy for all that. I speak, you understand me and we are good to go.

Back to the Toke hating, i heard most young people in lagos have foreign accents of some sort even those who have never left the shores of Nigeria. So if Toke who is a radio personality is trying to sound more polished and frankly succeeding (She doesn't sound British to me at all), what's the beef about? Then there's the bleaching issue.....SMH at Nigerians. I don't understand you guys sometimes sha. Unless she was Alek Wek black before, i don't see how she bleached because she still looks dark skinned to me. Besides why is that an issue and a reason to hate someone?

Anyone ever heard of the term hate-read? I guess it's when you hate someone but still read their blog with the intention of criticizing it. I saw it in cosmo and just LOL.

P.S. Sounding polished to me doesn't mean trying to get rid of your Nigerian accent and replacing it with some foreign accent. Think Wole Soyinka who sounds totally Nigerian, that's what i mean.
