You know that feeling you get
When you prepare for an exam and you read everything you can. You cover all the basics and tell yourself you’re fine.
Then you enter the exam hall and relax.
Then you see the question paper and heave a sigh of relief because you feel good about all five questions and tell yourself, you’ve got this.
Then the examiner tells you, you have just 2 hours to answer all 5 questions and you look at him like he’s suddenly grown horns.
Then you scramble for your pen and start writing, with that annoying voice in your head telling you not to bother because you know there is no possible way you would finish.
And you try everything to shush that voice.
And you write twice as furiously just to prove that voice wrong.
And when you’re nowhere near done, you’re told to hand in your paper because of course, time is up.
You hand it in while mentally throwing daggers at the examiner.
And you get terrified of what the results would be.
Then you start over-analysing all the words you wrote.
And you discover you really should have written ‘this’ or excluded ‘that’.
And a little voice in your head tells you should be fine but that other annoying voice says “please, you didn’t even finish”
Then you have to wait endlessly for the result.
In the meantime, you try your bestest to squash the negativity.
And you think of several ways of consoling yourself.
And you finally get the long awaited mail.
And pow!
You passed!

Yea, this is exactly how I’d been feeling lately. But oh, the joy of knowing you passed. You’re so giddy, you can’t think. The world is at peace again and you can breathe. Again.

Lately, God has been coming through. I'm not exactly where i want to be but i definitely am not where i used to be. And for that i am grateful. I have been feeling like i'm God's special project. He is definitely on my case. I constantly feel like doing some Stephen Boss aka Twitch moves (from So You Think You Can Dance) and dancing to the songs in my head. (groovy songs)
And the songs in my head? Try this: God in Me by Mary Mary (Can i crump to this?)

 Or this: Ara Ile by Simi

Or this: Thank You by Mary Mary feat Kirk Franklin

And that picture of Twitch? Yea, i just like to ogle him. Cute huh?
Have an amazing weekend.

 I got tagged by DHK,  Ibhade, Sugarspring, Cee and Lady Ngo in the Elevens. Luckily for me, DHK and Ibhade have the same questions. I might have to edit this to answer Cee and Lady Ngo's questions. *whew*
*Post the rules*You must post 11 things about yourself*Answer the questions that your tagger posted for you*Create 11 questions, then choose 11 people and tag them to answer your questions*Remember to let them know you tagged them*No tag backs*Let the tagger know when you answered their questions*
11 Things About Me 
1.      I don’t do favourites.
2.      If I could, I would remove all the pain from the world.
3.      I love math. Believe that and you’ll believe anything lol.
4.      I don’t think alcohol likes me very much which is fine because I’m not a fan too.
5.      I’m a perpetual laugh-er. I just love to find the humour in everything. I wish I could get paid for laughing or sleeping. Sigh.
6.      The glass used to be half empty but I think it’s half full now. I’m learning to always be grateful for what I do have and focus less on what I don’t.
7.      I watch a 1000 ways to die and some people think I’m morbid. I don’t think I am. It amuses me and makes me realize simple everyday mistakes we make that could be deadly. I also don’t watch it religiously so you can breathe too :) 
8.      I used to dance…a lot. I don’t anymore, well, unless I see food. I know I don’t have shame.
9.      Yea, I love food that much. Sadly, I don’t eat that much. I try though #kanyeshrug.
10. I love to sing. You should see me doing some Whitney-type ish. Even my bathroom walls agree. You better encourage me to go on one of them idols shows so I can become the next Carrie Underwood.
11. I absolutely can not stand it when someone squeezes paper in a bunch and throws it at me. It irritates the hell outa me. Plus, I find it rude and disrespectful.

Questions from DHK and Ibhade
1. What hairstyle are you currently rocking? A straight weave.
2. How long did you spend in primary school? 5years
3. What is your naughtiest moment? hehehe, I am the queen of naughty so I don’t even know which to pick. I’m always up for mischief :D. Let me just share one of my sane moments. My sister (Prim-not) was the class captain in her primary 5 and the class donated for her to get a gum for the class. My dad stopped to get this gum on our way home on this fateful day. As soon as we got home, I took the new gum and my sister’s Common Entrance practice book (Ugosi Ugo) and I gummed the book, page by page. When I was eventually discovered by Prim-not, she put both hands on her head and burst into tears. She then looked at me in horror and screamed “Gum class mi!” (My class gum!) Needless to say my dad had to get another gum on our way to school the next day. In case you’re wondering, I was not beaten for it :D
4. How do you express your anger? Thing is, it depends on how angry I get. I love the silent treatment. Sometimes I take a load of crap because I just don’t want to believe that you’ll know something will piss me off and you’ll do it. So most times, I’ll give you enough rope to hang yourself. I can also be a fireball and go off for about 3 minutes non-stop and then stop and walk away or laugh. I have a friend who gets on my nerves just to hear me rant and then he laughs because he says I look funny which makes me madder. I don’t fall for his bait anymore though.
5. What would you spend your last penny on? Anything that catches my fancy at that time.
6. When was the last time you treated yourself to a niceeeeeee warm food? This morning.
7. Who was the last person you said “I love you” to? A friend who said he hated me :D
8. What is your favourite take away dish? I really don’t do favourites.
9. How do you eat in public, spoon, knife, fork or hands, loud, quiet, slow, fast etc? It all depends. I can represent with fork and knife or use hands. I prefer hands with solids though. I also prefer to eat fast because I get bored easily. If I do it slowly/drink water, chances are, I won’t be full but it’ll bore me so I won’t finish it and I’ll be crying hunger the next 15 minutes. I don’t gobble though.
10. Do you polish your shoes? When I have to.
11. What are your thoughts on after life? There has to be a better place than here. This can not be it.

Questions from Sugarspring
1. Who on earth do you think loves you most (apart from God) My family. Of that, I have no doubt at all.
2. If you were to sacrifice your life for someone, who would it be?
I really don’t know. Anyone deserving I guess.
3. Have you ever had a crush?
Oh yea. Currently crushing on Boris Kudjoe. Guy is smokin’. He’s married though. Sigh
4. What’s the naughtiest thing you did as a child? I don’t want this post to be about how naughty I am so I’ll refer you to #3 above but I tell you, you can do a series of at least 4 seasons on the stuff I have done.
5. If today was your last day on earth, where would you rather be, what would you do and who would you want to spend your last hour with?
I would want to spend it with my family relieving fun times.
6. If you were given a second chance to begin life again, would you rather be someone else or the same YOU? I love me and I do me really well. It’ll be too hard doing someone else.
7. What are you so passionate about in life?
8. If you were told to sing a solo for someone on the radio, who would it be going out to?
Hmn, leme think and get back to you.
9. If you were told to make a shout out to just ONE person on TV, who would it be going out to?
This is easy, Mo and trust me, I’ll be doing some Jenifa-type sharouts.
10. Have you ever cried for a friend? and why?
Me cry? For what now? *side eye*
11. If Jesus was coming today, would you be ready?
Are we ever truly ready for anything?

My Questions: 
  1. What’s the one question you would ask God if you could?
  2. What is your most embarrassing moment?
  3. If you could change one thing in the world right now, what would it be?
  4. If you could say one thing to the current pope, what would you say?
  5. What’s the one thing you wish you could "un-invent" in d world and why?
  6. What’s the most terrifying moment of your life?
  7. If you were to be recognised by posterity for one thing, what would you like to be known for?
  8. What colour best describes you?
  9. If you could commit one crime without being caught, what crime would you commit?
  10. If you had to name one lesson of love that took you the longest you learn, what would it be & why?

Last week Monday, I got nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Relentless Builder aka K *cough* Someone suggested this new name to her: Ileayooluwakiishukiishakiite (don’t even try to pronounce that) but i think she's still considering it. Hi HoneyDame *waving* lol.

That weekend wasn’t restful enough and I had been looking forward to the next public holiday in Nigeria. You see, Mondays and I don’t really get along. I try but Monday is just not pulling his weight (yea, Monday is a He). I even tried using Mike’s method of yay-ing Mondays but who am I kidding? It did not work and then I got a message notification of the award and suddenly, Monday wasn’t looking too bad. I almost almost loved that Monday.

Thanks Relentless for making me almost love Monday.. The award made my week. Awards make me excited. *moonwalk* If you haven’t already, you should check out her blog. She blogs about everyday stuff in a down-to-earth style. She's passionate about education and she reviews gospel music too. She has a spot-on sense of humour and you’ll love it there. She’s amazing.
