LYRICS OF THE DAY

ARTISTE: SHANIA TWAIN

TITLE: YOU'RE STILL THE ONE

When I first saw you, I saw love
And the first time you touched me, I felt love
And after all this time, you're still the one I love
Looks like we've made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
You're still the one
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
I'm so glad we've made it
Look how far we've come my baby

HOW TO AVOID BEING NEEDY

Have you ever been described as needy or clingy? Do you get so excited about a new friendship or relationship that you bombard the other person with attention, only to find that the person starts to seem distant? If you find yourself wanting to call text or email someone a whole lot more than they contact you, you have probably figured out that neediness is a turn off to most people.

1. Put on the brakes: Every relationship develops at its own pace and there is no need to fast forward to being “soul mates” or “best friends forever” just because things feel great. Cherish the novelty of it all and the excitement of having something new, because it’ll never be new again. It can be nerve wracking not knowing how a certain connection is going to unfold but it’s also exciting! Be patient and learn to savour that excitement. Don’t try and push the connection into a stage that it is not ready for or you’ll miss the fun and create stress.

2. Take off the rose tinted glass: Part of the reason people get disproportionately excited sometimes is because we tend to idealize others in the very beginning of a relationship. When you first meet someone with whom you have a connection, it’s easy to get lost in fantasies of how awesome your friendship or relationship might be. However, with those fantasies come high expectations and sometimes those high expectations are unrealistic. Right now you might think you want to spend all your time with the person. But you’re setting yourself up to be let down. Be ready to cope and forgive rather than act shocked that the person dares to be anything but perfect.

3. Practice this for that: Imagine your interaction with this person is like a tennis or volleyball game;Every time you initiate contact, you throw the ball to their side of the court. Then you have to wait for them to send it back. You don’t toss a whole bunch more to make sure he or she is still interested in playing. If you’re a little on the needy side, you probably get nervous and worried while you’re waiting.
If you’ve already gotten in touch with someone, you sent a text or gave a call or left a voice message there’s no need to do it again. When you feel the urge to contact them again remember that there are only a few possibilities here:
a) They haven’t gotten the message yet.
b) They’ve been too busy or preoccupied to get back to you. If you trust this person, then you have to give him or her the benefit of doubt and assume this is the case.
c) They aren’t interested in hanging out at the moment.

4. Don’t be suffocating: No matter how close you are to another person, spending ALL your time with him or her is going to get overwhelming. Even if the person loves you, he or she is not going to want to be with you at every waking (and maybe sleeping) moment. If you find it difficult to be away from the person for even a few minutes, you’re almost definitely creating a situation that will eventually blow up in your face. As hard as it might be, force yourself to back off and give the person some space, spend a few nights away, do activities you like to do and don’t call or text for a bit. Your relationship will definitely Improve because the old adage that “absence makes the heart grow fonder” is true.

5. Recognize signs that the other person is no longer interested: It happens sometimes for s variety of reasons, but one thing is for sure – showering the person with more attention will never change their mind. Persistence is not the answer! Pulling away may be the person’s way of jumping ship without the way they feel, and deep down inside, you know that. If someone doesn’t have the decency to respond, they’re not worth your time, you deserve better than that.
Think about whether the person is acting fickle. Some people just aren’t good about maintaining a friendship or relationship and sometimes, they’re lazy or forgetful. More often though if someone isn’t responsive, it’s not because they forgot to call you back, It’s because they made a choice not to.
It might be that the other person just needs some time to focus on other things for a while. It doesn’t have to mean the end of your relationship.

6. Respect the other person’s wishes: Getting ignored or iced out can feel like rejection. Well, it is rejection and that really hurts. But once someone has decided they’re ready to move on, there’s nothing you can do to force the issue. Do your best to move on and resist the urge to be pushy. Lashing out or trying to hurt the other person in return will only make the person grow even more distant.

7. See if your needs are being met: If the person on your mind doesn’t flat out reject you but her or she demonstrates flaky behaviour and seems to be leading you on, think about whether you really want this person in your life. Just because you want to spend time with your friend or significant other doesn’t make you “needy”. All relationships require some time and effort to maintain. If the person is making you feel like you’re asking for too much, but you know you’re not being excessively needy, then maybe it’s the other person who has a problem.
Decide how much time and attention you want to give the relationship and figure out how much you expect in return. If your expectations are reasonable but you’re always feeling let down or neglected, it might be time to find a new friend or significant other who makes you feel valued and cared for.
Relationships aren’t easy to balance – it often seems like one person is putting in more effort. It is normal to have phases where one person is often busy and the other seems to be calling and texting more. However, if this is a constant pattern in your relationship and you don’t think it’s going to change, get out of the relationship before it hurts your self esteem.

8. Learn to trust: Once you sort out what’s going on inside you can deal with any issues you might have relating to other people. Neediness is often associated with a shortage of trust, and sometimes a fear of abandonment. When you find yourself doubting someone’s feelings for you, or their loyalty, ask yourself why you don’t trust them. Is it because they did something questionable? Or is it because someone in your past hurt you and now you think this new person is going to do the same thing?

9. Call other people once in a while: Focusing your life around just one person isn’t good for your mental health or self esteem. Call other people in your group of friends instead of pouring all your energy into one person. Get some people together to go to a movie or out to dinner and all the other personalities that fill your life. You have room for more than one friend.

10. Get busy doing other things: People who are busy simply don’t have enough time to be needy. They’re always preoccupied with other things and guess what? Those other things are what make people in testing friends and romantic partners. If you have nothing better to do than wait for someone to call or write back, then you’re probably bored and you know what they say – if you are bored, you are boring.

I'll be your hope, I'll be your love
Be everything that you need

The tears of joy for all the pleasure in the certainty
That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest powers in lonely hours

SINGLE PARENTING.

The friendship between Hope and I was a peculiar one. It dated back to when I was in my penultimate class in high school. Although we were in different schools and I was a year younger (but a class ahead), the chord struck the day we first spoke at a debate competition.

We made sure to keep in touch regularly thanks to Facebook but at some point, I became engrossed with school work while in the university and I hardly had time for social media inter alia.

It was a rude shock when one day I was browsing through my news feed and I saw Hope cuddling an infant. One million thoughts started racing through my mind. I was mad at the fact that she had a kid and was probably married without my knowledge, I was amused that she was now a mother, I was confused as to who her spouse was and I admit, I was more confused/amused than mad.

Being the loud mouth that I am, I commented under the picture thus 'madam, weldone; you are now married without my knowledge. So much for friendship' and immediately, I got a message alert from her. On opening it, my greatest fear was confirmed. My dear Hope was the latest addition to the statistics of romance gone awry with a kid as the fallout of the unfortunate relationship.

By the time she started to narrate how she didn't know how she found herself in such because you see, my babe is very street wise than I am, I became sorry for her; sorry for the kid who might never know what it feels like to grow up in a family where the father and mother adores him, where each milestone growing up is captured alongside family moments, etc.

Much as we like to condemn single mothers (and fathers), I like to remind people who are quick to judge that it could have been any of us (so Hope darling and other sweethearts of mine known and unknown who were brought up in this environment or who are single parents, this article wasn't written to spite you).

My very effervescent friend is now a shadow of herself, she is frustrated. I know this because she takes it out on me.
I don't know how it feels like to be single and still act like a parent but I try to empathize always.

Here are some tips to cope as a single parent.

1. Build a strong family routine and stick to it. Allocate time for chores and time to spend as a family.

2. Establish ground rules since raising kids by yourself means you don't have anyone there to back you up if they won't play nicely.

3. Find opportunities everyday to praise good behaviours.

4. Set boundaries and limits. Children need to understand

5. Don't feel guilty. Don't blame yourself or spoil your child to try to make up for being a single parent.

6. Take care of yourself. Arrange time to do activities you enjoy alone or with close friends. Eat a healthy diet.

7. Lean on others. Join a support group for single parents, call on trusted loved ones, friends, etc for help.

8. Stay positive. Try to keep your sense of humour when dealing with everyday challenges.

9. Don't waste time being angry. Fine, the relationship didn't work out that's why  you are left to care for the infant alone. Being bitter is just a waste of time as this is unproductive.

10. Be financially stable. You need to save money for unexpected costs and eventualities.

In other news, my darling is back!!!!!!!!!!!! You have no idea how sad I've been this past days that one member of our family was down but thanks be to God, she is fit as fiddle now.

NIGERIANS AND KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

"Keeping up with the Joneses" is an idiom in many parts of the English-speaking world referring to the comparison to one's neighbor as a benchmark for social class or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to "keep up with the Joneses" is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority.(www.wikipedia.com) 
There are moments I hate being a Nigerian; moments when something new is trending and every tom, dick and harry in a bid to be seen as "trendy" starts the copy cat syndrome.
Once upon a time, it was the bikini pose. I don't know who started the trend but before we could say Jack Robinson, everybody started to outdo themselves to post bikini pictures albeit not flattering on social media channels. Even those whose tommy and boobs were already obeying the gravitational pull were happily flaunting bikini pictures.
Next was the make up free pictures. Damn! the types of not so flattering faces I saw eh! goddam!!!!I started to ask myself what the whole stupid make up free caption was about because in most cases, these babes still wore   foundation and lip gloss so one could only wonder what was make up free about their bleached and burnt faces.
This next one left my jaw dropping because some crop of entertainment people I never expected to do such were infact at the fore front; uploading of passports with hashtags like enroute dubai...like really????????????? Yeah yeah we know some of us can afford to globe trot now but abeg them dey lock gate to America? I think it is broke people that do such. Yeah, some of them may be wealthy now but remember, being wealthy is just a status that can change. The only thing that can never change is change itself.
The recent one is musicians giving out cash to promote their new singles or dance step. I think it started with one of my dimpled celebrity crush that gave $1000 or so and now it is like that is the in thing.
If that money is given to some less privileged kids out there is it not better than doling out such money to promote some songs that most times is meaningless and does not add value to the listener? but hey is it my money????

Uh, by now am sure we all know this is our blog and not my blog which means I take all of us to be family so here is it. One of my fave blogger, sister, friend, companion Ernie is under the weather and tell you what am scared stiff. I've been getting updates from her hubby and I was able to speak with her some hours ago too and boy I don't like the way she was sounding. Now, I want everyone of us to remember her in our prayers (not keyboard prayers oh) because nothing must happen to my sweetheart!!!!!!!!!!! Get well soon honey.........

P.S. Am returning to Sokoto on the 19th, it has been one helluva stay in Lagos but hey, am a survivor. I don't want to whine but I promise to try to update as often as I get access to an internet cafe.

HOW HEALTHY IS YOUR AFFAIR?

It is totally normal to look at the world through rose coloured glasses in the early stages of  a relationship. But for some people, those rose coloured glasses turn into blinders that keep them from seeing that a relationship is not as healthy as it should be.
Take a  step back from the dizzying sensation of being swept off your feet and think about whether your relationship has these qualities.
1. Mutual respect
Know that your partner is into you for who you are but that doesn't mean you should feel like you are losing out on being yourself.
Respect in a relationship means that each person values who the other is and understands and would never challenge the other person's boundaries.

2. Trust
It's ok to get a little jealous sometimes. Jealousy is a natural emotion. But how a person reacts when feeling jealous is what matters. There is no way you can have a healthy relationship if you do not trust each other.

3. Honesty
This goes hand in hand with trust because it's tough to trust someone when one of you is not being honest.

4. Support.
In a healthy relationship, your significant other should be your shoulder to cry on and your greatest suporter when the going is good.

5. Fairness and equality
You need to have give and take in your relationship too. Things get bad really fast when a relationship turns into a power struggle with one person fighting to get his or her way all the time.

6. Separate identities.
In a healthy relationship, everyone needs to make compromise.  When you started going out, you both had your own lives (families, friends, interests etc) and that should not change.

7. Good communication 
Never keep a feeling bottled up because you are afraid it's not what your partner ants to hear or because you worry about sounding silly.
A relationship is unhealthy when it involves mean, disrespectful, controlling, or abusive behaviour. Some people live in homes with parents who fight or abuse each other emotionally, verbally or physically. For some people who have grown up around this kind of behaviour it can almost seem normal. It is not! Many of us learn from watching and imitating the people close to us. So someone who has lived around violent or disrespectful behaviour may not have learned how to treat others with kindness and respect or how to expect the same treatment.

WHEN RELATIONSHIPS DON'T WORK

Relationships are hard and require sacrifice but how much sacrifice is reasonable? The more you put into something, the more you should be getting out of it, unfortunately, it doesn't always work this way.
There are some relationships that the more you put into it, the more you are likely to lose. I've been there.

- are you always changing your behaviour to placate your partner?
- does your partner make it feel like they are doing you a favor by dating you?
- do you feel the need to compensate for or protect your partner's feelings?
One sided relationships lose their sparkle too soon and sometimes hard to walk away from. Be strong and committed to yourself before you commit to anyone else.

GRAMMAR 101

WRONG USES OF PREPOSITIONS

A preposition is a word used before a noun or pronoun to show a place, position, time or method.
Errors in the use of prepositions may not cause misunderstanding but they give an appearance of imperfect or careless learning.
Let's consider some prepositions wrongly used.

1. Middle
Wrong: he stood at the middle of the room.
Right: he stood in the middle of the room.

2. Alert
Wrong: we must be at the alert; lions are in the neighbourhood.
Right: we must be on the alert; lions are in the neighbourhood.

3. Scene
Wrong: she is a well known figure at the international scene.
Right: she is a well known figure on the international scene.
In contrast to 'on the international scene' there is 'at the international level'.

4. Bed
Wrong: Jacob was already on bed when I called.
Right: Jacob was already in bed when I called.
'in bed' is the correct expression even when someone is lying on top of any sheets or blankets, rather than inside or underneath them. But 'on' is correct if  a determiner comes before 'bed' and the person is not under the sheets or blankets.
Jacob was sitting on his bed reading a book.

5. By
Wrong: I told Chima to come by 3 o'clock. I was surprised to see him at 2.45
Right: I told Chima to come at 3 o' clock. I was surprised to see him at 2.45
'by' when used with a stated time does not mean 'at' or 'on' the stroke of, it means 'any time up to and including, but not later than .....'. In the wrong example, if Chima came by 2.45 that is before 3 o'clock, there was no cause for surprise.
misunderstanding can clearly result from this misuse of 'by'.

Phew, dear lovelies, today I woke up depressed infact I started feeling low sometimes in the evening but as I was on my way to the cafe to update our blog, I saw this dude without a nose( he must have been in an accident as  he had scars) yet he was smiling.. that moment, I became teary eyed and started thanking God. you see I know this isn't related to this post but please, in every situation you find yourself, GIVE THANKS>

The little, little foxes.

I have a temper (or should I say used to because it's been ages since I threw a tantrum*rme*) and everyone avoids me when I start my madness.
Things as little as pressing the toothpaste tube from the middle gets me mad! I mean is it too hard to press the tube from the bottom?? *looks left and right*
Unfortunately, virtually everyone that is dear to me annoys me in one way or the other with some crazy attitude they exhibit eg eating and not clearing the table, not laying the bed *points to my bestie* but the bitter truth is am yet to meet someone who won't wind up the other party in some kind of little way or the other and am included because nobody is perfect! Kapish??
You know what the holy book says about the little foxes that spoils the vine? ( go read song of songs if you've never come across that) the fact is it's these little things that people do that gets to us and y'all know that it's little stones that pile up to become great mountains that would be hard to demolish.
Most times when people dear to us do these things I tag little foxes, we tend to overlook but deep down within the resentment builds up and if not watched can destroy seemingly great relationships.
Since we ourselves aren't perfect as there would definitely be one or two attitude of ours people don't find funny, we should learn to be tolerant. If you can't tolerate then tell the fellow "annoying" you how you feel instead of getting unnecessarily grouchy, frustrated and irritated because if you don't tell them, they would never know as they might not even know their attitude is annoying.

In other news, some of my regulars have been missing eg Mayowa( I know final year is a hitch but honey please try to visit once in a while), Dr Bobby (my 6ft plus boo. If anybody has his contact send me a mail), Temmy my pretty doll too has been MIA, Fikemi too, heaven knows I miss this babe, shy anonymous, wetin dey happen now?? I know Tosin is busy with exams, goodluck bunny.

Erm something struck my mind while typing this and this is it. As part of the anniversary, y'all should ask me 5 questions each ( no holds barred) and I'll get someone to ask me while making a video so if y'all say yay, send your questions to amakahundeyin@gmail.com.
Cheers to the freaking weekend.

Lyrics of the day



ARTISTE: HOOBSTANK
TITLE: THE REASON

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

and the reason is You [x3]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Identity crisis


So you mean you are not igbo? Oh no! How can you be egun! Am used to the "ohs" and "ahs" that comes from people when I tell them am not igbo. Yeah, my mum is igbo, growing up I hated identifying with my father's tribe because of the stereotype that eguns were unintelligent, local, blah blah blah; I was quick to introduce myself as igbo, infact I took more delight in washing bitterleaf, pounding ede and banga than picking ewedu.
Going to the university changed it all for me; I became more self conscious and all. Now, am proud of my egun roots, well, I see my self more like a 100% Nigerian rather than a 50% egun, 50% igbo girl. Infact lemme type our(Hundeyin) oriki
Hunto Hanzi, whanga zou
Sato a wanno arowu ken poran du to
The whe mase whe
The whe gbeleto, gogu son sonvi
Ahoru wremegbe edo meta emi no gbo
Esa agutha ma blawu

Omo osa iba se bi okun
Ko ni jeki a mi
Eje ami eja a simi
Enia lonfidi enia bale
Omo ata arugbo meji legbeje
Ota eyeti ogbon
Ota eyeti kogbon
Ota won rairai soko
Omo okiki dode ijebu
Omi logbe nile alajogun
Kini onigba nta ti alawo koni

Now this is the part where my bragging right ends because I don't understand jack up there *covers face*

Lyrics of the day

ARTISTE: RIHANNA
TITLE: STAY

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said show me something
He said if you dare come a little closer

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

It's not much of a life you're living
It's not just something you take, it's given


Round and around and around we go
Oh now tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know

Not really sure how to talk about it
Etc

Oh oh oh the reason I hold on
Oh oh oh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needs saving
Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is craving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay , stay
I want you to stay, oh...

Siblings rivalry


Siblings rivalry is as old as the days of Cain and Abel. Growing up, I remember my younger brother and I used to be at each other's throat, it was like we were in a competition, we spent virtually 23.5 hours of the day figthing. It was like he refused to accept a girl was older than him and trust me to aways push it in his face that 4 years gap wasn't 4 days. Immediately my parents come back from work, I'll be waiting by their door to start reporting but no matter how much they handled the case, I was never satisfied and would start again.
So am asking, why is it that this rivalry is always worse when a girl has a boy as her immediate younger one? Or am I imagining it?

Countdown !!!!

This morning am so excited; excited because it's exactly one month to our one year blogversary! Woohoo!!!! So as part of activities lined up for the big day I'll be reblogging some posts from way back.
I've not abandoned our lyrics of the day but I assure you I've got something up my sleeve *winks*

GRAMMAR 101

Hello lovelies, I know it looks like I've not been serious about blogging but really I never planned it this way. Things went terribly wrong but then thanks to my cousin that lent me her device I'll be updating as much as I can till mine gets replaced.
Today let's look at these two words commonly mistaken; junction and juncture.
These words fundamentally mean joining but junction normally means a place where two or more lines meet such as railway lines or electric wires. Juncture means coming together of events, in other words time or moment .
Wrong: at this junction, I have to leave.
Right: at this juncture, I have to leave.

#GRATITUDE POST

Gratitude is uplifting
It enlightens one's spirit
And gears one into action
Actions generate results
Good results appreciated by all
But few are they that show gratitude



So I've been holding my pen for the past one hour and strangely, nothing is coming. Now am wondering if it's writer's block am experiencing ( I don't want to believe that though). Yeah, back to the post, Ernie and Duru nominated me for the gratitude post so here we are.
1. Am grateful to God ( that sounds so cliche these days but oh yeah, am grateful). I could go on and on about how grateful I am you know but am most grateful for the breath of life he breathed into me. He's been faithful even when am not faithful. Once upon a time I was tilting towards losing my faith. I had questions ; who is God? Who created God? What if we die and realize the whole bible and heaven thing is a lie etc.. Man it was that bad but he patiently waited while whispering "come home daughter".

2. Am grateful my mum is my mum. I am or should I say was the definition and model of a problem child but mum never Abandoned me!  I am too teary eyed to type what I want to type for my mum!
3. My online family. Am glad God blessed me with wonderful friends . Ernie am so going to squeeze the air out of your lungs when we meet!! My beautiful Moby, Obim, Funmi, Fikemi, Petite, Lily, my surest Chuka, Duru, Godwin, all the anons I see you!!
Now I gotta add this. Uh, am not spilling yet but if I had decided against going to Sokoto our paths would never cross *bats eyelashes* . This is the point I have to zip it ...hehehe.
Cheers to the weekend lovelies.

.........

I am not your friend if you have to think before you speak
I am not your friend if my presence ever makes you feel uncomfortable
I am not your friend if you have to say sorry for everything you don't do
I am not your friend if you have to ask me for favours
I am not your friend if you think I would be curious to know your new philosophy of life
I am not your friend if you go by what you say and do not understand what I don't say
I Am not your friend if you think that listening to your dream would put me to sleep
I am not your friend if you think that seeing you in pain would not bring a tear to me
I am not your friend if you think I do not remember the first-time we met
I am not your friend if you don't see the thousand ways I try to make you happy
I am not your friend if you don't realise how your smile brightens up my day
I am not your friend if you would rather keep quiet when you really want to talk
I am not your friend if you hesitate to ask me to stay back when you think we should be together
I Am not your friend if you take much time to tell me what I mean to you !!

Okay guys, my dearest Ernie is writing an examination this period and you know how we do it on our knees.. Remember her in your prayers !

Happy new month....

I really didn't feel like it's a new month but as I opened blogger, I realized today is the first day of a new month. I've been busy with orientation these past week and on Tuesday we left camp and I saw I was posted to Sultan Abubakar college right in the heart of Sokoto. That same day my handbag was stolen with all of my documents, id cards, debit cards and soon. Well my phone that doubles as my office was stolen and I've been broken since then. I feel like a part of me has been taken away and I think I need a long break from blogging. Yeah I've been on break and I really appreciate your comments and views. It's nothing really but I need to sort and process my thoughts as am at a major crossroad. I hope I'll be back before our one year anniversary.
Much love .
