When the alarm goes off...


Is violence the answer? 
Believe it or not, a certain amount of people out there will say a resounding “yes” to this.
Elections are rounding up... Just when we began to thank God for peaceful elections, an unhappy group of people decide to revolt. Why?  According to them “…the results are not accurate… The party we voted for did not win… this proves that the elections were rigged.” What should we do? Go out in the streets and revolt. Destroy the lives of innocent people, with the assumption that they voted for the opposing party, and let it be known that we do not agree with the results. When? Now! Let’s go out in the streets with our machetes and knives, whatever works. How? We will use our machetes and take the lives of our neighbors- men, women, and children. Whoever is not with us is against us and so nobody should be left behind. Our actions shall be our voices…We must be heard. Things must change… ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
**Off they ran… into the streets… protesting, setting buildings ablaze, literally ripping bodies apart**
As the tears fall from the eyes of those in fear,  the dead man’s blood is shed and used as a cure.
What does one gain from taking the lives of innocent beings? I wonder. I can’t seem to comprehend the sense behind violence as a means for change. You kill them and then what? Instead of gearing towards peace, human beings slowly morph into animals and lose their souls. What will it take for these ‘activists’ to understand that their actions will not create room for the change they seek? Instead, it deepens that division between members of society; the “better society” we all yearn for. I can’t count how many years I have been hearing “You, the young ones, are the future leaders of tomorrow.” When will this be the case? The greed & corruption that exists is not fiction. Sadly, it appears there comes a sense of pride in knowing that is what our country is known for, and we do it very well. At what point will these youth get a foot in the door? When will there be open ground for the “best man to win” and lead in the most prolific and honest means? Accountability? Responsibility? Progress? These do not seem to exist in the government’s diction.
*****************************************************************
A few hours ago, the winner was confirmed. President G.E. Jonathan will lead our country for the next 4 years. I am not sure how I feel about this, not necessarily because I do not care, but more because the persistent cycle of events have made me numb to the on goings of the society. My heart bleeds for my country and its people. We, Nigerians, wear our hearts on our sleeves… and without a doubt, there is a lot to be proud of. Nevertheless, I cannot bury the shame that seeps within each time “Nigeria” comes up in a discussion. Resounding complaints about the most BASIC things that one would assume such a literate country would provide for its people. Why? It seems people have been subliminally inoculated against standing up and speaking out. Our artistes have poured their hearts out time without number via means through their art: music, film, etc. Wetin man go do?
Sigh…*Suffering and Smiling*

I want to believe there is hope for my country...
Actually, I do.
Enough with the violence; set the religiosity, tribalism, ethnic differences, “my money and your money no be mates” mentality aside. I believe that individuals that are working and making progress will spread that virus of positivity to others. Let there be strength in our number. As we yell “WAZOBIA”, I pray for that same unity to trickle down into the hearts of my people.
All it takes is time…and of course divine intervention.

Do something…ANYTHING within your power. Make moves for change.
Cheers to another 4 years!

Spit


Right now I just want to spit out my feelings; speak my mind.
 I don’t know what exactly I’m thinking but I just feel like I should air stuff out.

Why is it that we, humans, always tend to want what we can’t have and it’s the stuff that we don’t want that come our way??
 I just don’t get the logic. Yes! I’m referring to people- relationships- feelings—all that mumbo-jumbo!

I realize I’m scared of getting hurt but that’s one of the norms of life isn’t it? I just feel like life’s taken so much from me and I too have given so much—its time for life to give me something. I don’t know if I’m making sense but hey I’m just spitting out thoughts!
Yes, anything that doesn’t kill you will make you stronger but I don’t wanna have to go so close to death- u feel me?

I keep things real- at least as real as I feel I should be but for some reason, it never falls in my favor. Why?
 I have no idea.
 I have prayed and now I’m letting go.

 Whatever happens will happen.
 I will live~~~ and let live!

And the surprise guest was.........


yes boss!


12pm:..standing in line,waiting to go through security. Felt like I was back at the airport trying to catch a plane to the white house or something. Security as tight as u can imagine...


protesters trying to make a statement.

12:25...seated 4 rows from the podium and I'm in high spirits. 

1:00PM.. Dignatories from GW and the White House begin to arrive and mingle with each other. In the mean time I'm engaging in small talk with other attendees. We fortunate few. It is true that many are called, few are chosen. Lol! All that keeps running across my mind is "You're about to see the President of the United States... You're not watching TV. Its live and direct!" whopa! 
Unfortunately, I ended up sitting beside this sophomore chic that seemed to have ADD and couldn't control her excitement.... She took up a seat & a half and this bothered me because she kept hitting me. (I'm sorry I'm just being real). As a result.. My one chance to get a pic of the Vice President wasn't very successful but anyway here you go...
Joe Biden-VP of the United States
1:45pm.......Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the President of the United States-->>>>
video

Clearly, I was flabbergasted and couldn't hold my camera right. lol...
He gave a speech on budget deficits and the plan toward "winning the future" of America. He has an aura that compels one...makes one want to listen and to be honest, you can easily be swayed. That's my godfather right there! 
tooooo freshhh




      President Barack Obama!!!


Yes Yes Y'all... It became as real as it could become!


P.S: I will give the person who can spot the MAIN difference between the 3rd  & 4th pic--->$10. 
NO CHEATING (it's you and your conscience!)

Memoirs of a Traveler...Part 3 &4!


10 years later!! I know that's what you guys are saying. I'm sorry. Got home and ran to the gym to burn those calories and I'm so hyper right now! Figured if I don't post this tonight, it'll never happen!
So Vegas Vegas Vegas... oh by the way if you notice, I don't have a "view from the top" pic like I usually do just because after all that drama, I wasn't able to get a window seat. Oh well, I still made it!

Finally landed in LV on Friday nightevening..weather was good and everyone at the airport was buzzing with excitement... I kept wishing I could read their minds- all the sins they intended to commit. Vegas is also known as "Sin City". When you get there you will understand why.
Got a shuttle to the hotel--Wynn, and met up with the rest of the crew---> Estee (who by the way was the birthday girl), Massa & Ashleigh!

#Song4dWeekEND



Hey guys! 
 Hope you all had a good week? Semester's ending so I'm trying to lock things down with the books. You all know how that is. Exams are round the corner and well.. for me it's more of papers, papers, and more papers.
Yes I'm yet to fill y'all in on my Vegas trip. I will get to that this weekend.


I know I'm not the only one that's glad it's Friday so here's a jam to get your weekend started! I absolutely love this song and video. Gotta love Chris Brown..Yes I'm on his team-- not a stan, just a fan! I think people should just leave what's been done and move on. Afterall, the Rihanna that everyone is defending is busy promoting the use of whips & chains to derive pleasure anyway so ...WHY BOTHER?  Puhleeez!! 




"...Live your life live your life .... Let the love inside... It's your life.... Your beauty is deep inside, inside you.."
  WHOOP WHOOP!!

I love videos where people just relax and have fun!! 


Whatever y'all end up getting into--- HAVE FUN & BE SAFE!!
