Welcome in the New Year!!! *Trumpet sounds*

Well, this will be a short post.

Yesterday was my birthday. Yay! :D. The plan was to put up a post to mark the day. Unfortunately, I spent my entire day in the office. And when I say entire, I mean the entire day. I didn’t close from work until 10:50pm. So I got home at 11:15pm. Thank goodness for living fairly close to the office :).

Anyway, I did have a little celebration with my team members and there were pictures :). (I do have another mini-celebration planned for the weekend though. So Yippee!) Anyway, check out my birthday pictures down below to see how advertising folks roll (that rhymes doesn’t it 😉 ). IMG_20140821_162205DSC_0408DSC_0414DSC_0416 Yeah we can be quite crazy but that is a perk of the job. Be as crazy as you want, as long as you’re in the creative department *rofl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, these are the pictures. Yes I had a blast. Here’s hoping the new year of my life is even better than the previous one (and the previous one was a doozy. Trust me 🙂 ).

I should put up an anime themed post this weekend. So, until then, Ja ne.

The Problem with Too Many Options

Mr Sims is out with another brilliant post about relationships, and he likened it to going to a buffet service. Now, I’d already commented, but I kept thinking about it and something occurred to me. Why is it that women and men become so greedy whilst at the buffet and start gorging on the meal even with the available options? What do I mean by that? Well, you’re at a buffet, which means you have the opportunity to choose what combination of meals you want to enjoy. Now do you choose all the meals present because everything is there for your taking? No. Do you choose the meals you do not like because they’re there for the taking? Of course not! Why? Because there are a ton of options available to you; meals that you know you would enjoy having. And even when you step out of your comfort zone and try out a meal you’ve never had before, one that is totally not your type, you’ll first have a taste of it. If it goes down well and you enjoyed it, you will keep going back for seconds. Who knows, that type might be the meal you fall totally in love with. If you don’t like it, you’ll definitely put it away. So, if you will not force yourself to eat unpalatable meals at a buffet (even with the fact that you can have everything at the table), why do we settle for men or women that are either not good for us, not enjoyable for us to be with or leave us without that satisfaction of having had a great meal? It’s a buffet! You’re dating. You have the opportunity to choose what works for you. Take that chance and stop being worried that the meal with finish before you get to one you will really like. Or have you ever been to a true buffet service where all the meals finish before you get to it. I know I haven’t ;). Read the original post, and enjoy and even better? Leave a comment. I know Sim would love hearing from you, as would I :).

The buffet line – the best and worst thing when it comes to eating food.

So much variety, yet so little time. So limited an opportunity to really enjoy yourself.

I’m past the point of pure gluttony that comes with all-you-can-eat buffets. When I was younger I was able to put away so much food, and what made the food even more delicious was the fact that it was all so cheap! Back then I was a growing boy and to some, overeating was sort of endearing…

And then you get a bit older and you come to the more expensive buffets. Not only is it so unsightly to cram so much food into your stomach, it also reeks of desperation, like you couldn’t get whatever it is you’re stuffing your face with elsewhere. Most importantly you don’t get to savour the food you’re eating. If you’re shoving chicken, veal…

Supernatural Season Finale: Oh boy Oh boy, I did not see that coming

Disclaimer: My Series review will contain a lot of spoilers. If you don’t want to know about episodes until you’ve watched them, then don’t read. Read only if you like spoilers or have seen the episode already.

dean-sam-supernatural-29699892-900-720From the very first time I saw my boys (Yup. I claim the Winchesters’ as mine. Bite me :p ), I fell in love. With the series, the stories and the characters. Supernatural is filled with snarky wit, crazy storylines, tons of supernatural creatures out to get you, comedy and the constant spinning of religion on its head. I mean, this is one series whose fans think Death is uber cool, Lucifer is just divine, and angels can be really annoying. Of course to properly enjoy it, you have to remember that this is a work of fiction. You’re not meant to take it too seriously ;). So don’t go waving your bible around screaming about the atrocity and heresy. Now, I love this show. Like crazy. So, I’ve been feeling quite depressed at the thought that Season 10 is the last season for the Winchesters (they only signed a ten year contract, and it’s almost up. Anyone think it’s suspicious that their contract is exactly the term of a demon contract 😉 ), and the producers would want to start wrapping things up.

Bring Back Our Girls Change Petition.

urlHello everybody. I know some of you might know this, and some of you might not, but I am a Nigerian, living in Nigeria. I’ve lived in this beautiful country of my birth and heritage since I was born, and I am proud to say that I am a Nigerian because my country is full of beautiful people, with amazing minds, the strength to get through terrible times and the fortitude to keep going even when the odds are against us. There are as much good in this country as there are bad, and even though sometimes I weep for my country, I will still keep hoping and doing everything that I can to make my country a better place.

Almost four weeks ago, a militant group, referred to as Boko Haram terrorized the small community of Chibok in Borno State and kidnapped over 300 girls between the ages of 16-18 from their boarding school, put them on a bus and drove off with them. What was their crime? They were in school, trying to write the WAEC examinations, and Boko Haram believes that women shouldn’t be educated, but should be married, and spend their days having sex with their husbands, taking care of the home and birthing babies. The leader of the sect has come out to say that he will sell the girls because there is a market for them and Allah has commanded him to sell them.

This terrifies me. They are children! Little girls who enjoy learning, who want to learn new things. They shouldn’t be punished for that! To take them away and force them to live under brutal conditions is wrong.

Now, I know naturally, the duty of bringing our girls back falls in the hands of the nation’s Government. But so far, our Government hasn’t brought them back. And every day that passes is one more day for these girls to be raped, beaten, shipped off to marry people they do not want to marry or even killed!

There has been an international outcry for the rest of the world to help us bring them back, and the movement has been going strong, for which I am grateful. Now there is a petition on change.org asking for the help of world leaders in putting an end to this and bringing the girls home. I have signed it and the girls, the family of the girls and the rest of the nation and the world who care will be extremely grateful if you could sign it and let others know about the petition.

A proverb says that little drops make a mighty ocean. Signing this petition would be a little drop that together can cause a tidal wave that would help rescue this girls. Please do this for them.

Thank you.

Reader Request: Friends With Benefits (FWBs) vs. Girlfriends

I’ve been following WordSmith’s Journal for a while now and I have found all his posts witty, intelligent, engaging and honest. This post is no different, and I am even more appreciative because it is a response to a question I asked in an earlier post.

The WordSmith's Journal

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and that wherever you are, the weather isn’t freezing you or boiling you. A reader requested that I write on a particular topic (hence the title) and so I’m going to go ahead and do that today. Here’s a portion of her question, with some bits edited for french lol.

“So, what criteria do men use to choose the girls they *beep* and the ones they actually enter a relationship with. Now, I know that every man has his reasons, but what would you say is the most likely rationale for that thinking. Especially when said guys are really close acquaintances, some of them friends even, and they give you the bullshit of you being a great girl, their personal paddie who is a great catch, but they don’t seem to see you as that girl they can get into a relationship with…
