Drama Queen

I know, when I paused after reading the topic, I tried to see it from a reader's point of view. I'm sure you'll be thinking along this lines: she's about to talk about some chick that loves to act life out, that loves to be the centre of attention 24/7.

I am glad to tell you that you are wrong!

I am about to lament to YOU about my life!

I need to know
Why everytime I am about to step up to the next level in my life, its never automatic

I need to know
why everytime I am supposed to just go through a particular session or phase, its never like everyone else's

I need to know
why I had to attend 3 primary schools instead of one.

why I was not allowed into secondary school from primary 4 and my brother was rushed through

why I had to attend two secondary schools

why I had to do GCE twice, WAEC once, NECO once, just because I was looking for credit in Chemistry, even though i had As in all the other subjects.

why I had to be given a fake score in the JAMB I needed to use to process admission thru Predegree, and if I hadnt returned for an official result document, I wont have discovered that I had actually scored high enough to enter through JAMB itself.

why I missed my chance to travel to Canada bcos my dad had used the fake JAMB to grade my intellect and decided that I could not cope. When the original was given to me it was too late.

why I have the only father in the world who doesn't want any other person to train his child or pay her fees.

why I had to have missing results - and retake two yr one courses three times b4 the lecturer finally let me go. And only because he was threatened by a prof, who told him to stop giving me 'missing results' instead of my wel - earned grade.

why I had to wait 8 months before going for NYSC bcos my so called mentor decided not to let me know he'd altered my results until it was too late.

why I got posted and rejected twice.

why I worked and didnt get paid for about three months by NYSC.

why NYSC refused to give me my certificate today because of the money THEY owe me!!!!!

aaaaaaarrrrrrrrhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
I could go on and on, but I wont bore you!

In, d words of Kanye west... wat dont kill u can only make u stronger.

Life aint fair. D challenges transform u from a gal / chic / babe to a woman.

Tis better u learn from d frustrations, embrace jah, and move on wit ur head held high. U still got Long ways to go gal.

I'll give u a hint... Working - Marraige - Inlaws - Kids - Parenting possibly pain in d ass kids - Fees. Its an endless struggle for a perfect life.

Once u dont lose focus or strength sha. U'll be ok.

Welcum to d real world babe.

You think your life is 'drama-ful'? You never hala. I've got a friend who's life will make yours seem like a home-video.

And like Afam said, you never even start, beta brace yourself baby, life still has a few more curve balls to throw your way. Just maintain your posture, keep your eyes on the ball, then swing away, send it as far away as possible.

EKITI KETE

What is this wahala now? Why must such a tiny state in Nigeria cause so much wahala? It is not even in the center, it is not even an original state but a cut out of another. I really dont understand why every newspaper feels they must print something about Ekiti on the front page every single day. And this has been the case since it was created. The latest sensation is the election rerun that even our busy President had to take time to go and see. I mean, you would think with all the monitoring eyes, everything would run smoothly but no, another twist in the saga has been announced.
The outside world thinks we should be ashamed of ourselves. I a just praying that it does not get bloody, and that Ekiti will stop trying to keep attention all the time.

Am not dissing Ekiti o[that was for Vicky who will soon be my husband, so he'll not quote me after the wedding - he's from Ekiti :D]. Am just saying they should behave themselves.

Hey Mum

Hey mum,
I just wanted to thank you.
I thank you for deciding to get married - some women didn't see the need.
I thank you for deciding to have kids - some women didn't want to mess up their figures.
I thank you for going through discomfort all through the pregnancy.
For going through all the pain.
I will be forever grateful to you for allowing God to use you to bring me to this world.
But that's not all.
You didn't give me away - some women did that to their kids.
So I thank you for putting your needs, your wants, your career aside, to raise me.
I thank you for taking the time to teach me the Lord's way.
I thank you for loving me with all my faults.
I thank you for ensuring that I had the best you could afford.
You are a mother, and blessed are you amongst all women.
I LOVE YOU

Plans List?Carried out or not?

Have you ever planned the next year of your life and then after a few months, realized that nothing went according to plan? Well it happened to me. Back in October, I knew where I wanted to be in a year's time: I was going to be married, with my husband and I studying in a foreign country for masters degrees. We had applied and then things began to happen.
First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.

Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us …
