Dear diary, last night was the craziest I have seen my housemates. There was a cake, baked with some high stuff and their was so much misbehaviour from almost everyone. I left for my room dragging Fiwa along at few minutes past 12 midnight. By then kisses was flying everywhere. Joel’s girlfriend was particularly embarrassing. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email

f Thank God it’s Friday! I woke up in high spirits today. Lines from a book I had read last night ‘The purpose driven life’, by Rick Warren kept playing across my mind all morning. I felt inspired to do something different. And while I stood gazing at the sky on the balcony at few minutes past 6’o clock this morning, with a tiny little jotter, and a pen in my hand, I knew I needed to Influence my world in my own little way. I hope in days to come, I m disciplined enough to follow all my steps...

Fiwa and Dumebi went out to grab lunch today. She has been so giddy since she got back. But she hasn’t told me anything. My guesses are always almost right, so I will just assume the obvious; that the both of them are now an item. Dumebi had earlier tried to engage me in a conversation this morning in the kitchen, but I had my walls up and thick. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email
So I got invited on this date with Tomiwa, and I obliged. I didn’t really have plans for the day, so I told him we could meet up. I went in the company of Fiwa. After all, it was all her fault I will be ‘brunching’ with Tomiwa, my supposed stingy, and bad-mouthed ex. I could tell in Tomiwa’s body language that he wasn’t too excited to see me in the company of my friend as we walked in through the door of Tantalizers at Ring Road. He was although looking very better than before. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email
I was out to meet up a client today. Fiwa was at the studios too. I passed by Dumebi in the morning and ignored his attempt to say an hi. Hadn’t I advised him to pursue just friendship with Fiwa for now? I just can’t trust him not to hurt her. I ended up in UI again. There was their non-academic staff protesting about what in the world I didn’t know of. I’m just pretty grateful to God that I am out of the system of the ASUU, NASU, or SSANU strikes. A lot need to still be fixed in...
I was up early but laid still in bed. As soon as I noticed Fiwa was fiddling with the door, I sat up. I wanted to see the look on her face when she realises that I was in. She was pretty shocked and kind of freaked out. Her face flushed with embarrassment. I didn’t even let her cook up lies. I just kept asking ‘why did you do it? We talked about it, just why?’ Fiwa came up with some annoying self-pity stories, and that really got on my nerves. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email
Folafunmi came in earlier than I expected. I didn’t even get to have a shower before I left home with him. No make up, my hair in a mess, still claded in my joggers, Fola insisted he wanted me in his company that early. He didn’t even let me carry any extra clothing. Having explained that we would be spending the whole day indoors and if I needed to change, I can change into some of his clothes. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email
Dumebi told me today of his intentions to date Fiwa. He asked if I thought it was a good idea. I didn’t even know what to say. Dumebi isn’t the most stable guy around giving his many escapades of which I am aware; neither is Fiwa in the best frame of mind for a relationship. Left to me, I’d have thought Fiwa still needs some time to get her heart and mind in order. We all have scarred pasts, yes, but I believe there’s a time to heal. Read more FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email
