 Heyo! Sorry if I've been a bit distant lately, in my defence I've just finished my Mock Papers some weeks ago, and just being naturally busy. But I would always find time to write another effective blog post for all of you! Speaking of making time for you, when was the last time you gave your mother a call? When was the last time you rang a close friend who lives abroad?  Now it's Christmas time, I think you ought to make it family time, friendship time, and all the other times you could think of. These days, people are suffering, suffering more than even you could imagine. I'm not saying you are suffering, but everything is a blessing, every plate of jollof rice and chicken and salad with Maltina and plantain with pepper and beans is an advantage. That one pepperoni on pizza is a gift, intact that overrated 10 naira note is a prize. Appreciate it... As I was saying, anyone could be suffering, but you wouldn't know, because the victim tries so very hard to hide th

What Did You Say?

Excuse me but what did you just say? I believe you didn't just rudely insult us? Oh, so now you want to take it back? Sorry, I do not accept your apology.  Hello! That was a downright example of making a mistake with your words! I assume everyone has made a little slip up with our language every once in a while. Once it is said, there are NO take-backsies. I mean, you made a mistake and said something you would rather not have said, it' not like the other person can just forgive you.  Give them some time, and if you're lucky they'd forgive you immediately and take It as a mistake. But some don't forget and forgive that easily. Learn to watch your tone and the things that you say because there are certain people who actually do not forgive you, at all. Or they just take sometime.  Hope you got the memo, enjoy your day!

Not Again!

 Good evening or whatever time you are reading this. The follow-up question is, what is this very special and dedicated blog post about? Lucky you, because this post is about YOU! How is it about you, you ask? Well, no human on Earth, absolutely NON, is perfect, including YOU. And sometimes we can't help but make mistakes, even though they can be avoided. No matter what happens, I'm not perfect, you're not perfect, she's not perfect and he's not perfect. NOT as long as you are on this Earth you are not perfect. But I believe that if you are on another Earth you might be perfect. It just depends, no one is perfect at ALL.  Maybe I may be coming on a little too strong. Like I said before, no one is perfect and we all make mistakes, therefore we make continual mistakes, over and over again. Sometimes we don't even know we are making a mistake but we ARE. Most times we do know. The advice that I give, is that for us who make knowing mistakes, I think we have to stop

Is That My Landlord?!

Image
 I don't actually have a Landlord, it's just something someone would say if they saw their angry Landlord marching toward their house. But now, why is he angry and coming your way? Well, he's coming because in the few days you've been living in his apartment, you have obliterated the neighborhood with your litter, the neighbors are getting mad, and everyone is shouting at you. Some people are even moving away because they can't keep up with the smell, which is bad for Mr Chinedu Adedayo, your Landlord's business.  I know you all understand the scenario, it's an angry Landlord coming to scold you for littering. I guess I and Mr Adedayo think alike, we both hate littering. Littering is bad, it spoils the Earth and its beauty. Everything good about the Earth becomes bad just because a few people decided that their legs wouldn't walk anymore to stand up and find a dustbin. It's a serious issue around the world. I know that every single person reading thi

Victim Or Victorious

Image
A father asked his son what he wanted to be in the future. The son said happy. Then the father said that he doesn't understand what he meant. The boy replied that the father doesn't understand life. Through ten years I've lived I have observed many kinds of people. For the sake of this article I will break these people down into two categories; those with a victim mentality and those with a victor mentality. Those with the victim mindset interpret the world totally different from those with victor mindset. They view the world and its obstacles as an unfair challenge and those with the victor mindset view obstacles as an opportunity to overcome.  Which one are you? 1. The victim believes the whole world is against them/The victor believes the whole world needs them. 2. The victim sees a challenge as an obstacle/The victor sees an obstacle as an opportunity. 3. The victim depends on handouts from others to succeed/The victor makes do with what they already have to succeed. 4.

That One Wish

King Solomon chose wisdom. If you had been granted the gift of one wish come true, what would you wish for? For starters, the number one thing a human beings instinct is to wish for money, power, wealth etc. But NO! That is not the right thing to wish, keep in mind that you also cannot wish for more wishes, the right wish is for wisdom, and the rest will come. If you wish for wisdom, choices will be easier to make. Most people think that wisdom is being intelligent or smart. They are wrong. Absolutely wrong. If you have wisdom you have courage. Wisdom is strength, and wisdom is key. Thank you. At least now you that if you are gifted with a wish of tough choice, always remember...Choose WISDOM! Check out one of my most popular posts!

How To Make Your Breakfast Worth It

Not everyone wakes up to breakfast. But you do, so take a moment, just one moment out of your 24 hours, to thank the Lord for the food he blessed you with. And it's not just food, it's clothes, a shelter and every other thing you have. As you might have thought, this post isn't really about breakfast, it's about being grateful.            

How Does my Behavior Affect Others

 Your attitude/behavior can positively or negatively affect a person, their behavior, their actions, their attitudes and even their perceptions. A leader or team member who has positive attitudes toward other co-workers can positively influence those around them. Your smile can be a huge variable in someone's day. What Is Behavior And Its Examples Behavior is an action that is observable and measurable. Behavior is observable. It is what we see or hear, such as a student sitting down, standing up, speaking, whispering, yelling and writing. For example, a student may show anger by making a face, crossing his arms, yelling, and turning away from the teacher. (All behaviors listed are unacceptable anywhere).  How Your Words Affect Others Words influence others and build relationships. They can also tear down relationships. Simply put, language holds massive, colossal power to manifest change, whether it's good or bad. How Does My Attitude Affect My Behavior Attitudes can positivel

Vox Populi Vox Dei

 A sọrọ nitori a jẹ iran ti o ṣe iyẹn. I am not a fluent Yoruba speaker, but I know a few words. If you also don't speak fluent Yoruba, you're probably wondering what that text above means. It means 'We talk because we are a generation that does that'.  What I mean by "We talk" is the protests. I mean, imagine if it wasn't this generation that this was happening to, other generations might have cowered in fear and let SARS and Covid 19 to destroy and take away everything important to them. (Not like Nigerians ever cower). The reason we talk is because something is wrong and we don't like it, so we say something. We say something. Don't feel guilty, that you are not out there protesting with our other Nigerians. You are also protesting, just not physically, you could be praying, donating and some of the other things we are doing. I don't protest physically either, technically because I'm too young to go out alone much more to protest. I prot

Protest @Lekki

A number of people have reportedly been shot dead or wounded at a protest against police brutality in Nigeria's biggest city, Lagos. Witnesses and the rights group Amnesty International said several people were killed and wounded when soldiers opened fire. The state governor said about 25 people had been wounded but denied there were any fatalities. An indefinite 24-hour curfew has been imposed on Lagos and other regions. Protests over a now-disbanded police unit - the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (Sars) - have been taking place for two weeks, with demonstrators using the social media hashtag #EndSars to rally crowds. As tensions continued to rise on Wednesday, police in different districts of Lagos fired shots in the air to disperse protesters defying the curfew, the BBC's Nduka Orjinmo reports from the capital, Abuja. Protesters who briefly gathered again at the Lekki toll gate - where Tuesday's shootings took place - were forced out by police, he adds. President Muhammadu

Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation and emotional abuse. No child deserves such treatment, not even if that child is naughty, rude, disobedient or misbehaved. Nothing a child does can should make a person harm them. We might need a little punishment but nothing so wicked.  Below are a few  NoMoreChildAbuse quotes. “Childhood should be carefree, playing in the sun; not living a nightmare in the darkness of the soul.” ―  Dave Pelzer  “Abuse manipulates and twists a child’s natural sense of trust and love. Her innocent feelings are belittled or mocked and she learns to ignore her feelings."  ―  Laura Davis "Abusing a child can't be undone So why  even  do it to one No child deserves these heartless actions Of a man or woman who needs distractions Love and

#ENDPOLICEBrutality

Today, I don't have much to say, but the fact that in this video Nigerians came together for what is right, this is very inspiring. SARS can't stop us from reaching our goal.  Nothing can stop an idea when the time is right. Thank you! #ThisGeneration

#ENDSARS!

Widespread protests over Nigeria's hated Special Anti-Robbery Squad (Sars) are a sign that the country's massive young population is finding its voice and demanding reforms in Africa's most populous country, which has been characterised by poor governance since its independence 60 years ago. Despite forcing the president to disband the unit, they are not satisfied as they want total police reforms and for officers in the rogue department to face justice. But it goes beyond this because the wave of protests has given a platform to a section of the country's young population who are deeply dissatisfied. On the streets, those marching are mostly comfortably-off young people, some with dyed hair, pierced noses and tattooed bodies. It is the sort of gathering that security personnel are quick to label criminals, but in truth, these are largely hard-working young people who have mostly had to fend for themselves without support from the state.

Tise Talks: The Girl Child 2020

          Today is the International Day of The Girl Child. It was coined this way to fight for equality between the two genders. The female child is a special child. She births, nurtures, tends, supports, encourages and cultivates.           The benefits of having a girl child are quite amazing, that is why educating the girl child should be every parent's duty. An educated girl will become an educated woman, and an educated woman will become an educated mother. An educated mother educates the world. On the other hand, an uneducated mother therefore is not empowered to educate her child and the world at large. 

Opportunity and the Doors of Life

Image
Sister Act 2 is a movie with a major life lesson. OPPORTUNITY! Everyone needs to know that word. The key phrase in that movie was "If wanna be somebody, if you wanna go somewhere, then you better wake up and pay attention". For playful children, it's just hard to pay attention sometimes because they're always playing and always want to. Another thing I noticed in that movie was the setting of the church. It wasn't exactly the land of opportunity. But the opportunity that was actually out there was the one the actor character did not see. I'm trying to say that you should always look for the open doors in life, or sooner or later, every single door will be closed. Not all chances come twice.

Making It Happen

This year, everyone is hurting, and thinking of the suffering of some people made me feel like helping the poor and making money for charity and schools and all that. So I started to think about my own school and slowly everything came to me. I wanted to start a girls' basketball team, a girls' football team, a film club, a business club, a learn to lead club, a representation team and so on and so forth. I really have a lot of ideas and planned to invest in every single one of them. I always had a dream to go abroad and study so I started a little business by selling Iced Tea. I hope you all get what I mean. When you have a dream and there will be challenges, you need to get around them and pursue those dreams.

Talk About Trash

Image
Where I live, it's not surprising to see trash on the streets. The world can't really save itself 'cos of our litter. When you use a tissue, dispose of it properly, not on the streets, not in the drainage, but in a BIN. I mean it's not so hard to do. Or is it? Who wants to change the world? You have to make a series of little differences to make a big one. Remember the three Rs- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. When you think of throwing a piece of tissue out the window of your car next time, think of the damage you are causing to the earth. Imagine yourself in Miss Earth's place and how much pain you're feeling being littered by the people who you have have given a home for many years. Doesn't sound great does it? So, HELP THE EARTH!!! #savearth#savelives By T. Osimokun

#At Home With Me

COVID 19 TIPS Do not go outside your house unless it is absolutely urgent, like a fire started. Try not to touch your face at all. Wear a face mask whenever leaving the house. Wash hands regularly. Children Safety Tips (For parents) Dear parents, it is not safe to allow a child to go out on their own. Children are being kidnapped, abused, enslaved, trafficked and raped. Anything can happen, so here are a few tips: Don't let your kids go out alone. Have a curfew for teens. Don't allow them to talk to strangers. If you are at work and need someone to pick your kid up from school, anyone can say "Your mum sent me to get you, c'mon let's go." So have a code, give the code to the person you asked to pick up your child, tell your child the code and that if anyone wants to take them somewhere they should ask for the code. Internet Safety (Kids and Parents) Parents: You wake up in the morning just to find your child doodling something again on his laptop. You are abou
