Been Content in all situation is the key

God is a God of wonders and He has done so many wonderful things for me one of which I had became so embarrass to share because I though of it as my fault and incapability but thank God he has changed my mindset and allows me to share this. After all if an earthly father gives more to a child who is thankful how much more the Father in Heaven who is the maker of Heaven and Earth, so here I'm with a heart of thanksgiving. I never intended to write this and you probably never intended to read this but I pray that it blesses anyone that reads this and perhaps make you have a reason to be thankful.

Now we wrestle NOT against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. Until an individual have been tempted well enough it is almost impossible for him or her to reach where God is taking the person to. Now the devil knows that the place is going to make you a better person and so he will try all possible means to keep you from getting there. But all you gotta know is that no matter how deep you think you have fell ALWAYS get back up and remember that God is always on your side and will never let you go.

Now if you remember  my post All i want for Christmas you know I  was craving for  a beautiful Scion Tc and Dec. 25 could not come soon enough so December 10th I was invited to  a Nigerian Christmas party in my area and I was not so interested in going, so Saturday morning dec. 11 I went about running my errands...

Its was 8am in the morning and the most annoying song is blasting off on my phone. it was 8am on a Saturday morning, who wake up this morning and be calling me. 4 rings no pick up , 4 rings again no pick-up  4 rings  again, Urgg this person better have a good reason to be calling me.  Jacked up, pick the phone and its was daddy...OH SNAP gotta take this. half asleep all I could hear was "are you still sleeping I'm outside and we need to take your car to the garage now or you will be car less again for the next week"

Now this car of mine sef don suffer. I am only 5 years older than it sef and its about time it retire, everyday fix fix fix, but I knew I had no choice because surely the week has been miserable enough without a car on campus. Waiting outside for school shuttle and driving through all the other campuses for half hour is just not my thing. so off to the mechanic!

In the mean time I had Momsy's sequoia to drive since she was still in Nigeria and I love the feeling of a tiny girl driving a huge SUV and feeling all on top of the world :). 6pm car was still not fix and it was time for the Party. My friend decided not to go anymore neither did I,  but daddy wanted me to drop off my siblings so off we went.

8pm the street was dark and here I was manoeuvring a huge SUV on a one way double-sided parking street and I have no idea where I'm going. Been living in this down for over 7 years and still don't know my way around.
Sibling #2 : TAKE A LEFT
sibling # 1 : NO TAKE A RIGHT
Sibling #1 and #2  : HEY LOOK LOOOK LOOOK
Sibling #1 & #2 : looookkk...OH SNAP!

Little did I know what was going on, my head spinning around unable to concentrate and acknowledge what just happened. What was that yo?...Sibling # 1 & #2 You just crash the car...OMG OMG OMG WHAT DO I DO? and pull the car back and its stuck.! Pulling it back and forth until it got out. I had just crash into a parked car that had Wood. Clearly the car was not damage at all but Momsy SUZ is all damage on the side.. Door can't open and half the other door was half way out.

With tears running down my eyes I manage to drive back home as fast and slowly as i can to make sure the SUV still make it home in one piece.

thoughts in my head was my life has been trembled and what I'm i suppose to do? what do I tell mom and who is fixing this?...Boy was I in so much trouble!

First thing was to call Sis Pj and bless the Lord she came as soon as she heard me crying over the phone considering she could not make out any of the words I was saying.

After hours and hours of crying things started to make sense and I realize that I had no reasons to cry but to be thankful because it could have been worst. My siblings could have die or even myself.

Come to think of it....The devil has been playing several trick against my mom because she is a woman whom God has set aside to use in this era. All my life i've never seen her been used by God this much. It started out with the devil telling her that she has a possible Cancer but by the power in the Blood which took for a month before she went back for a re-test the doctor began to apologize because they could no longer find it in the several test that they performs after. As if that was not enough she was almost kidnap in Nigeria when she went home by an enemy.
Now December 6-11 I had not driven because the my car has been dead and dec 11th when I now drove I had an accident. Who knows maybe the devil had plan this for me for the week and God disabled my car or maybe the devil wanted to try Momsy again with her car and God had to use me to disable her car before She comes back from Nigeria. Who knows what could have happen sef? I can picture so many worst scenarios but in all things I still give thanks

To cut the story short I ended up finding a mechanic that would fix the car for about $4000 and have it ready within a week which is when momsy was coming back. I told my dad that I would take care of it but still it hurt so much that I'm car less for now and won't be able to purchase a new car anymore, matter of fact I've been in shock that I refuse to drive anymore hopefully I will overcome that fear soon but in the mean time. "I have learn to be content in all that i have" Phi 4:12, because there are many people out there of which material things are not even a concern to them but pure health, and here I'm complaining. My ex-roomate used to say that I'm spoilt but I sure know I'm not I just have some amazing parents that take pride in their children. Its funny when I tell people about the incident they immediately say what did your dad say and its funny because he was cool and just said "The worst could have happened, losing all 3 children in one day? what would I have told their mother?" With that I'm grateful to God for my life and blessing me with the most amazing parents in the world.

Have a bless week

I woke up this morning to this totally amazing message from my dad. Sometimes we lose direction with God but with Him been a merciful God it is easy to get reconnected with Him. This bless my heart and I'm sure it will bless yours too and If you read this before it won't hurt to read it again because the Word of God are new every morning...

The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart.

This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve , resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some of the symptoms include:

1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, JESUS , has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, JESUS will replace it with:

1. Love

2. Joy

3. Peace

4. Patience

5. Kindness

6. Goodness

7. Faithfulness

8. Gentleness

9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus .

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!


P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by 'Knee mail'!

Because He Lives remain BLESS

Studying Hard or Hardly Studying??

Its finals for the next two weeks and I have no option but to ace all my exams but here I'm blogging. I just could not resists keeping the post till after finals. I've been waiting and excited to see this new Yoruba (Nigerian) movie coming out called "Omo Ghetto" Funke Akindele my girl is in it and I just can't wait to see it because its definitely going to cause so much laughter. Check out the trailer on youtube.

Have you ever heard of Funke Akindele? This girl surely is a stand up comedian. I could watch her movie "Jenifa " a thousand and one time and still not get tired of it, holding my ribs as they starts to hurt and tearing up from laughter. "Jenifer" is a Yoruba movie and have sub titles and you will definitely enjoy it even if you do not speak the language. Although I can only understand about 60% of Yoruba language, I still love their movies because there is always something to learn from it. Yoruba people got some nice morals that I absolutely adore, who knows I might just get married to one myself :). Anyway in preparation for "Omo Gheto" check out "Jenifa" on youtube if you have not seen it or just want a good laugh.

Funke Akindele

Happy viewing and good luck with finals for those taking it.

All I want for Christmas is....

I don't want alot for christmas there's just one thing that I need and I don't care about the present underneath the Christmas tree, I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know, make my dreams come trueeee, all I want for Christmas is YOUUUUU!
        So basically Christmas is already just around the corner and the above was actually the song blasting on my radio on my way from church this afternoon and all I could think was what I wanted for Christmas and it was so hard to actually come up with a list, which is totally unusual but come to think of it I've got the perfect phone I've always wanted and the laptop I've always wanted as well from black Friday. The only thing left was a Scion Tc my age 20+ dream car...Now I almost got one 2 weekend ago but long story short the guy did not want to sell it with the price that I requested since he had 2 customers biding at the same time. Now I love sport and 2 doors cars but my dad does not and I think he has been praying against it even though he will never tell me not to get it. I promise I'm not spoiled I'm just daddy's gurl :). Either way I think he's prayers are working though and I'm praying my own prayers too but what ever the case it God's will is always the best and he always have the perfect plan for any individual.

      Christmas is a great time to think of things we want but then again I've come to realize that all that I need I've got and everything else is a plus so this holiday i will be doing mostly giving than receiving. It is much greater to give than to receive and also a man a sow reap abundantly. So this season I really pray that men around the world remember the orphans and the poor, if you get a chance to give please don't neglect it. A pair of shoes or cloth lying in my room unworn for over 6 months would bring so much joy to a child out there that have never worn shoes or cloth in his/her lifetime.

      As I love to say expectation is the mother of manifestation, my heart is full of so much expectancy this holiday season and I just can't wait to celebrate. Sometimes I wonder why is it that I'm the only one left out in certain situations? Yet there is a constant reminder that if  that situation is thrown at me now, I most likely will not be able to handle it, so right now all I say is "may His will be done."

8. Amazing extended family I've been blessed with
9. Strength to carry on as an Engineer Major: 1st semester freshmen year I never thought I would still be an engineering major, but I have seen unlimited favor with people that help me to come this far to almost graduating.

Friendly Friday #4 (Just had to...)

School has been busy planning 2 big events one for my work study and the other was a big fancy banquet by one of my student organization of which I am an officer.

Many people usually assume I’m Hispanic or mulatto or half-cast (I sure remember those days in Naija been called half –cast ) at first glance but lately I have got quite some interesting once and I just had to share …. So my second event which was the banquet happened on Friday night at a really nice fancy ball room. After much planning and running around for the past two months all I wanted was for the banquet to be over . The night started out with me having my own little dinner knowing well that I will probably not have chance to eat considering I was a co-host for the night.

The night started out amazing with people coming in gradually and late as usual. Chei African-time is too much! Anyway so 7:30 food came and then presentations and performances including an awesome magician, He was making people things disappear and reappear in his hand or mouth and it wow so impressive.  Just around 10:00pm I was set on duty for ticket sales and there was a group of three guys that walked in. They all walked in majestically and had the audacity to pretend that they did not know we were selling tickets to get in. Half way through of them came and then paid.

The night went by jeh jeh till I finished co-hosting the best dress award session. On my way back to my seat one of the three guys that came in extra late stopped me to start a conversation.
Guy:  something keep telling me you are Kenyan.
Mz YSU:  are you serious?  really? for real?
Guy: yes i'm very sure you are Kenyan
Mz. YSU : ..........No i'm not sorry! I'm Nigerian  are you Kenyan?

This guy claimed that I look familiar like someone from his church. Trying to be polite as a one of the host I kept on with the conversation and all I could really focus on was the big alcohol smell that I could not open my nose properly to inhale. Anyway after we talk for about ten minutes or so, Guy: where is the after party at?

See me see trouble o! This event is ending at 1am and after all this planning, and running for a successful event the last thing I want is to sleep in my bed till Saturday morning. I told him there is no after party at least not for me. After a while with me trying to explain to him there is no after party, guy goes“lets go for a drink after and then we can go to your place.” I replied “I’m sorry SIR I don’t drink, it is strictly against my personal morals and even if I did I will not be going out with a well to do older looking guy like you.” I just had to put him in his place. Thank God before he responded my friend interrupted because she wanted to take picture with me. I just had to put him in his place. First of all when you see a Kenyan you cannot miss it and him been a Kenyan should be able to know well enough that I do not look Kenyan and me been Yellow Sisi should have given him some hint. Kenyan men in my community are known for drinking and he look old enough to be married with 2 kids.

This brings me back to Boys/Guys/Men of now a days, everything has to be about the physical. Whatever happened to the days of knowing a person as an individual and their personality? Guy mentioned he got a home church and yet must have missed the portion "Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?” Guys like this disgust me and these are the type of people that makes my heart tremble when non-believers refuse to even hear the word of God I try to share because it always end up with “how come so and so did such and such if he is a Christian.” Pastor’s children photos in club houses is definitely the growing trend these people make it embarrassing me to claim pastor’s child as the day grow.

Anyway this week is thanksgiving and momsy traveled to naija yesterday which means I shall be doing all the thanksgiving cooking at my house. I have not been home in a while so have not cooked since like summer ending so I’m excited. Is Black Friday really worth t? I need me a new Sony Vaio. HAPPY THANKSGIVING in advance!

From the reservoir's of the heart the mouth pours.I've got so much joy and relief in my heart right now word cannot even express it.

Amazing Randomness...

Fall is in the air and I absolutely love it. With the leaves changing colors, it's  looking extra beautiFULL. It takes a beautiful person to create Beautiful things and every beautiful creations He made never seize to amaze me and think how beautiful God is.

This was taking on the drive to the mall
Time change....If you live in the country you sure know fall/winter = time change. This means I get extra hour of sleep tonight since the time will be shifting backward. 

Speaking of fall means a new wardrobe. Time for me to get a little Parisian, Layering leggings,coats, blazers, cardigans, tunic, berets, scarfs, gloves, legwarmers, ankle boots, tall boots and everything else to keep extra warm and still fashionable :)

Friendly Friday or not so Friendly #3?
Every man is fearful, wonderful and uniquely made, with each man given a task or talent that is exceptionally unique. A talent or art that set others amaze. Its been said that "Master of all is Master of none." The problem is I enjoy doing so many stuff, Fashion, Music, Numbers, Science, braiding, sowing, dancing, I could go on and on. I absolutely love to braid when a person just sit down and say "work the magic" This Friday I had an opportunity to "Work the magic" so I spent my whole Friday night in a braiding/fixing hair marathon for my Nigerian girls on campus. 2 fixing and 1 single braid that lasted till Saturday morning.

Song in my head: I'm a friend of God - Israel and New Breed (Have you notice how many times I used amazing already in this post? thats because part of the lyric is "it's amazing" and its stuck in my head.
Currently Reading : How to be a Nigerian Peter Enahoro - can you believe I've never read this book until now? I'm definitely slacking big time.

Thankful for: All my new followers - Sometimes I just write for the sake of writing but to have people actually visit my blog let alone read it is amazing!. With that said, Ms. Yellow Sisi Unspoken was mentioned in blog gist earlier this week. Check it out Here

Question in my Head : Do women REALLY have it Easy? somebody please help me here!

Verse of the day : Exodus 14:14

Advise of the day: Never forget to smile! A Smile either draw you near or pull you away from people. To my ladies smiling does not only make you look younger but it makes you more attractive. To the mens, A lady never fail to notice how you smile. To the workers/Students, A smile can always get you to be favored by your boss or professor. I either heard or read this from somewhere " happens in a flash, and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever." 

If I stay here any longer this post would become a lot of run on sentences. Therefore I shall rest my fingers here. Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday night. Enjoy the week ahead!

Mini-Steps to Forgiveness

So yes I did survive it. Ms Fashionista wanted an all pink bday dinner....Personally don't like pink and I was not in no mood to purchase a pink dress i may never wear again...check out Fahionista or maybe not? if you don't know what I'm talking about. Well Ms. and I finally came to compromise that I could wear pink w/ something else.....I really did not want to but again if I don't go now the whole naija community on campus will start to wonder what the beef is all about. and I've already been doing so well with keeping a low profile on campus to the extend people ask me if i still live on campus so I had to keep it that way.

As per the dinner it went ok, Half the people ended up not wearing pink sha cuz it was last minutes and who wears pink dress anyway? Some point was awkward but I'm glad I Survived it and I praise God for the courage to actually sit and smile the whole night.

Being the last Sunday of the month we had Singles meeting at church and the topic dealt on was conscious and forgiveness and it was really encouraging and I have come to a conclusion that even though I was badly hurt, I've forgiven, the pain will not die in a few days, weeks, or even months but I know it will. Some things I took out of the meeting were

Hold forgiveness to one thing you value the most or something you desire in the future...For example learn to say to yourself "If I don't forgive this person I may never have a good husband or children of my own" This will help ease the forgiveness process because you value those things so much that you just want to forgive and forget.

If Christ my father can forgive, who am I not to forgive?

Friends will wrong you and hurt you so use the opportunities to learn how to forgive because in marriage will come lots of hurts small or big and men being men they will never say "Sorry" They may be sorry but might not say it.

Moving on November is here so HAPPY NEW MONTH!

Fahionista or maybe not?

So I've been gone for a while, this crazy school of mine is not easy o so abeg make una nor vex i never forget this blog.  This one will be short but I will be back later this week sooner than you know it.

Anyway sha long time ago, on one faithful summer day I decided that i was finally done with friendship and learn to select my friends. Problem is I know way too many people and love them all to death so if one hurt me it change my whole view of friendship, life and people we relate with. You know the thing be say noh be by fire or by force to befriend somebody but like dem oyibo people dey say association is important in life. For now we will call this one girl/friend/sister Mz Fashionista?....Well this one girl used to mean the world to me and I see her as my sis since I biologically have none and something happened in the summer that things went bad. To the entend that we don't talk in school, church or work  and our mutual friends are starting to decay. Anywaz our parent have tried to settle everything and bring everything back to normal but its just so hard to hurts so much to the point that I think I need help. Anyway her birthday is this upcoming Friday and I'm still contemplating on going or not. I'm really praying for this but we will see what happen.

Ghana no go kill me o

Friendly Friday 2

Friendly or maybe not so friendly?...Bowling always sound awesome when you've got a whole bunch of naija gurls that are just horrible at bowling. This one was going to be with a bunch of people that are probably pro-bowlers so I decided not to go anymore after my friend backed out on me. This meant in-door friday so 8:00 on the dot I was in bed you know with my laptop on my stomach and food in one hand ready for a movie marathon. I shall only write about one of them.

Have I mentioned how much i love Ghana movies? all my Ghana people I still love y'all though its just that I can't stand the movies. Recently, ok maybe sometime in the spring 4Play came out. Hey don't blame me jor, one thief came and stole the time from me so it is now that I'm watching it. Well let just say it was disgusting, I mean seriously must everything be expose? This is Africa movie we are talking about here and not some American movie, even American are not that bad. Now the new trend is Ghana movie is not complete without a sex scene.

Ok my next complain is colors. The girls are blinding me with colors o, haba yellow, green, red, blue and everything from head to toe must much urgg. And have you notice too that they all wear the same outfit just in different colors.

The only thing I can say is overall the girls were funny in their stupid acts. And big ups to an actual good ending for the first time. I mean no confusion everything was clear. That was it for the night so 4:00am I decided to call it a night.

If you want to watch it for yourself checkout

Oh and by the way I love my Naija people we are so loud and our present is always acknowledge. While I was watching my movie jeje all of a sudden outside my window someone started blasting KOKOROKO and I could not help but sing along too.

Someone enjoyed her summer!

Happy New Month
I know i'm late. Happy New month!..can you believe its already the 3rd day of september and before you know it it will be december. I wish you all an abundant blessing and favor this new month and I know in this last four months september, October, November and December God is set to remember you and that situation you have been struggling with for His word say
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him
The greatest love I have found still remains in Him and I hope yours is too.

New month always equal new thing in me. I finally moved in on campus on tuesday night after everyone has moved in since saturday. Let just say I was lazy to pack but hey it works out well because i'm trying to keep a low profile this semester. Sadly I won't be graduating in May. All my friends will be graduating in May and I'll still have to wait an extra semester. I guess this is the price I have to pay for choosing to major in Engineering and Business minor.


Ahh mr. Oh so hot hot. Ok maybe not so new but he is still oh so hot hot. When you think engineers you think geeks but this dude is so fly for an engineer like me (*wink*)...He has got the most amazing smile ever and I can't help but get lost in his smile everytime I see him. Last semester he was there but this semester he's looking even more fresh with the tan skin and afro. Did I mention he is mix black and caucasian and I'm in love with mix children. Anyway First day of school you know I had to look extra fine. I had a black dress with pink and green flower print all over, black legging to look classy rather than trashy since the dress was short and a matching studs and bracelet. I have never appreciated been a size 1 so much until this moment lol. One of my guy friend yelled from the hall and was like "wow someone enjoyed the rest of the summer...looking so fresh" I blush and next thing i knew came Mr. Oh so hot hot standing there too and he was like "I like your dress you look very nice with the colors"...first i'm like cool in my head catching myself blushing again and mumbled thanks..

Spiderman always come to rescue, was so glad to see him finally after 4 classes went by and i'm like "I can't believe I have no class with Spiderman this semester." Before my last class started he finally came in and i had the biggest smile ever because he's my other bodyguard that always help me and pull me along classes for the whole semester when I start to fall.


I finally got that single room I requested for so the deal is

1. Straight A's and little B's
2. Pull through with either 17 or 20 credits
3. Keep a low profile
4. Get more involve in Christian Student Fellowship
5. Make very few friends as some has been a disapointment this summer
6.Read my Bible and pray Everyday
7. Go to bed by 12 everyday (haha this will be a big one)
8. Always read a chapter ahead
9. Have FUN
10.Get in the 5 years BS and MS program by the end of the semester

So since i'm back to school I have decided to do a couple series called Friendly Fridays. it will be some on the amzing things that happens friday nights that i'm on campus so hope you enjoy.

Friendly Friday 1

The weekend officially starts with my class ending at 3:00pm. Words on the street is we are expecting a hurricane to hit our area. My dad called me today asking about it and telling me he went to buy food... I could not help but laugh because I just don't believe all that. And what I don't understand is how do they get the hurricane's names, I mean each one of them have their own names can somebody help me out here lol?

Went over to my sis house after and we are planing a day trip to NY for labor day so if you live in NY I most definately need ideas on things to do and places to go.

Came back to the dorm at about 7pm and boy does my wisdom tooth hurt so bad i can barely open my mouth let alone talk. Some of my friends live in the same dorm as myself so I came over and we've been blasting music for more than 3 hours. Alot of Naija oldies like them infinity, resonance, old p-squares, paul play and a bunch of others that just brought back memories. Its most definately my first friday back to campus and word on the street is one of the professional male group is throwing a welcome back to school party. Now me I love parties but not really if you know what I mean. dirty dancing and getting drunk is not the atmosphere I like to be so I called it a no no for the day. However sitting in the room and seeing how the other 5 girls were talking about this party and mama e o you should have seen the outfits...sometimes I just wonder how they can where things so short all in the name of fashion. I guess its worth it with all the attention.

Ok i'm so done boring you guys sorry for the long write-up.

Have you started school yet?...I want to hear about it

luv luv

In the midst of it all

At times I get so much thoughts in my head but hardly a few times to actually write and I get so excitted to blog it and by the time i get a chance it gets too late and i'm no longer excited to write...Back in the days when I used to be young (you know) I loved to write but now i'm starting to get back to it and thank God for the chance I had yesterday. When all was calm with the abundant showers of rain that He brought down this just reminds me of the calmness that it causes after the storm...and so it begins

when the world around me begins to move fast
faster than i can barely follow
when the things that means alot becomes useless
when the happiness in my heart cannot be express
when the pain cannot be express in words
even at that stage
there is only but One who knows
who knows the things i feel
the things that means so much
Yet others just don't see

there is but just one Man that knows
knows how to comfort me
and tell me it is well
when i stumble
when i fall
when i'm wrong
He just tells me that i'm LOVED
with the greatest love that can ever be given
the love that cannot be measured
the love that remains unendless

at times I forsake Him when all is well
when the fast pace of the world take away my attention
but i've come to the point of speaking less and listening more
waiting to be used
maximizing my singleness to the glory of God
and yearning for that quite place
the place where I know its just me and Him
a land that I call the me and Him comfort zone

In the meantime I have a very good feeling about this week and i'm so excited in what it has in store for me....Have a blistful week everyone!

luv luv

The Birthweek must never end

It is exactly 7 days since the big 21 and i promissed to update on my birthWEEK.

Aug 11: Yeah on my special day i got stuck at work from 7-4pm and the whole time my phone was just buzzing...Silly me got a new phone and I had no idea how to put it on silence so the whole time the phone was vibrating. I could tell the poor guy near my cubical was getting piss off. Hey its my special day he had to deal with it. Afterwork was shopping with momma dearest and then sis PJ after momma got tired. This was 11pm meanwhile I had summer classes final exam the 12th

Aug 12: Woke up 6am talkinh to myself..."Should I or should I not call out?...hmm I really do need this morney so "frig it I'm off to work"
1pm and driving down the highway to my exam at 2pm. Need I say more I definiately blew that exam...I'm still so piss even though I know I did not study much I expected to do well but nooo since my Prof. had finally realize that everyone has been cheating in the previous exams he decided to make it so difficult. I was happy though because all these people will learn there lessons and doing my work with what I know how to do I know my God is in control.

Forget Signals and System, at least its over now. So I spent the evening driving over to sis PJ's place in boston, followed by a movie at the mall which we ended up not watching after we found out we had to wait for 2 hours. Instead we decided to go window shopping...we needed yellow dress/outfit for our photoshoot on sunday evening and there is no luck. Yellow is the best color and its no where to be found still 1.5 hours later.

Designer's shoes, designer's bag, designer's shades, designer's watch...designer's this and that. Well let just say as part of my bday celebration we went to a designer's ice cream place at the mall after window shoping...Now this ice-cream was yummy but mad expensive for a tiny cup of super-delicious oreo-cookies ice cream. Mr. T was with us complaining the whole time after we changed the plan of boat cruise to movie then shopping. What can I say for a beautiful set of sisters comes trouble as well.

Aug 13...Its day 5 of my birthday week and things just keep on getting better. So apperently this is the only unlucky friday the 13th of 2010 and I don't believe those things anyway so it will be a great day. The little sis came over later in the evening and thank God I got out of work early so more shoping with sis PJ and a couple other friends. Shoped from 2pm-9pm and after an hour drive backed home, went out for dinner....I still can't believe we all got dress and looking classy in 30 mins. Dinner till 1am and no I did not get drunk actually did not even taste alcohol I have to desire for it so 21 and legal is no big deal to me.

Aug. 14h...Doing mumsy's hair as well as the lil sis's hair and running a million errands today since the 15th is men's day celebration in church...

Upon all that my friend want me to go to her cookout in lynn and mom is forcing me to go to...urgg. So Ms. I is driving since i'm so tired.

About 4pm still out and about getting cake for men's day and then drop it off for mom b4 going to lynn.

After 5 back at home and there is mad cars and people at my house...shoot my mom and sisters got me so bad..its a huge surprise party at my house...

Everyone wearing Yellow and/or purple.

I can't believe they got I was like what about the photoshoot and then my sis told me that was just to get the color theme for the party since i've always wanted a color theme 21st b-day party....To top it all off they got me the cake from a wedding cake ladie that I wanted badly.

PARTY PARTY PARTY till midnight with the ones that I love and people i've not seen in the longest time....AWESOMENESS!!

Aug 15th...Mad tired and still more to do for men's day at church. Been a minister's child is not easy o. Waking up early to set up and all that..Boy i'm so tired.

So overall this was the best birthday/birthweek EVER!...I've still got my friends taking me out on two more outing this week and my arsenal jersy cuustomize by my cousin just for me should be arriving this week can't wait....Ok enough about my week, Are you a leo? celebrating your birthday this week or last or in the near future?

Bye for now
much love from Ms YSU

The last few weeks has been so busy youth covention, school, work and what not. Brand new age, Brand new scion tc, HTC HD2 Phone, several new dresses, black bag from baker, steve madden bag from macys, money money, Now i imagine this week to be the best week EVER, Endless calls and text messages...this is how i envisioned this week, i mean its my birthday week and i just wanted to live it up until Sunday...The day my phone got missing. I can't believe i drop that phone and within legit 2 mins someone picked it up and its gone. Still so piss right now, $400 to get a new one, plus early termination and maybe data plan bringing it close to $1000. Boy what i'm i gonna do without a data plan and my mom most definately think i've gone insane to pay that.

You and I comfort zone

2 Days staight without a phone is like living in a desert. I felt so issolated from my the rest of the world but thank God for the oppotunity i got to free write a bit.

when the world around me begins to move fast
faster than i can barely follow
When the things that means alot becomes useless
When the happiness in my heart cannot be express
When the pain cannot be express in words
even at that stage there is only but One who knows
Knows the things i feel and cannot say
The things that means alot that others just don't see
There is but just one Man that knows

He knows how to comfort me
and tell me it is well
When i stumble
When i fall
When i'm wrong
He just tells me that i'm LOVED
With the greatest love that can ever be given
The love that cannot be measured
The love that remains endless

At times i forsake Him when all is well
The fast pace of the world takes away my attention
Now i just want to speak less and listen more
Waiting to be used
Maximizing my singleness to the glory of God
Yearning for that quite place
the place where i know its just me and Him
A land that i call the me and Him comfort zone

On the bright side its only about an hour to my 21st and I'm so excited even thought summer class final is on thursday *urgg*

21 THINGS I'M THANKFUL FOR... This should be up soon after this week with the birthday celebration updates.

For now someone i'm so thankful for is my Mother
My superhero
My love
My refuge
My pride
My joy
She is my all in all and i'm glad for the 9 months she carried me plus he 21 years she raised a smart, beautiful, talented...haha let just say the simple and yet so complicated person i've grown to be.

A to the U to the G to the U to the S and to the T = AUGUST

Forever 21 baby

The BEST month of the year YESSIR!...its a new month ,a new me and a new year. The month started of great yesterday. Now if you are a WINNER (AKA Living faith Church) you already know first day of the month is covenant day of trumpet and August 1st happen to fall on a Sunday which means double praise and all I can say is I was so blessed and honor to lead the service praise and worship session yesterday and I know God did used me yesterday in a way like never before. With that I started my new book today by Papa Bishop David Oyedepo The Power of Praise. This month is a big deal for me pretty much because I already know that Unlimited Breakthrough is my Birthright. My head is big so are the numerous things that I have stored in them…lol but I still learned some things yesterday such as…

Speaking of daydreaming of beach the other day in class I went to the beach after church with a couple of friends eating mancala, ludo, eating meatpie, jellof, fried rice, scotch egg, amala and ewedu and eba with efo …haha nah that was a little exaggeration but yeah I definitely had a blast, laughing at people and with people was great the only thing missing was the perfect 90 degree weather so I could get my tan (wink) and see shells like bar-beach in Lagos.
And now the countdown has officially begin…Ms. Yellow Sisi Unspoken turns FOREVER 21 (Yes one of my favorite store is FOREVER 21… ) in 9 days. SO EXCITTED! I shall be officially and fully legal except I still can’t rent a car yet …shoot!
So for the new me for august I decided on braids considering the fact that its summer and its way too hot…I have not had braids in like 8 months so it feels so good…Only God knows how long it took me to decide what to do with my hair, getting up at 6am to do hair is a NO NO NO and these oyibo people sef won’t let you rest once you change hair style it becomes what did you do to your hair and I’m just like AWK---WARD. But today I finally did it and I got all kind of response from people not noticing at all to you added extensions that is so COOL to HOLY CRAP what did you do…But I’m glad I did not have to answer too many people today. They should not be minding my own business in the first place.

I shall also be getting a NEW CAR by the end of the month and if God surprises me enough I should have my Flight ticket to Naija too.

And my scripture of the day which I happen to love so much and I know its not a coincident for today is

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”- James 1:22

And lastly A close Mouth is a close Destiny so speak or write the Unspoken and if you are reading my blog thanks A LOT!

Aye mi....

If not for God........

I love the sun and hate the cold with passion....who is ready for a story?...story story (story!) once upon a time (time time!)...haha just playing. I love ABSOLUTELY everything about my job except for the cold because apparently the AC is way too advance. Since i've decided to spend my summer break making money in an office i get no sun at all. I mean i miss getting my beautiful tan every summer and i still look as if i'm still in winter...Life as yellow sisi noh easy o.

I get very excited at about 11:30 everyday because that's the only time i get to see the sun since i always sit in my car or drive out for my break. So today i was too lazy to go get food so i decided to just sit in the car and read my book "The healing balm" I had my car on half way so i can listen to my music at the same time, so...

11:45 I'm still readying my book

12:10 Shoot! my break is over and i'm screwed
Got out of the car and had my i knew i had 3 things in my hands when i came for break, my book, phone and car keys but now i only have my phone

12:13 I'm standing by my car thinking i had three things my book is in the car and i have my phone what could possibly be the third item

12:15: Thinking in my head.. I'm already late and no time to worry about this now you will just get it later

12:15: Got out of car and rushed back inside
4:32pm....Looking looking for my keys can't find them

4:33 Did someone just come in my office and steal my keys? (Still looking)

4:45 O SNAP!...My keys! could i be so stupid, its still in the car with the car half running

4:46...rushing down the stair...oh snap i am so dead what if the battery is dead by now?...what if someone drove off my car?...what i'm i surpose to tell my dad?
snap snap?


4:50 Get in the car and snap its still running almost 4.5 hours later.

Ok yeah so that was my day...I can not be anymore thankful to God. Oh my stupid mistake what would i have done if my car was stollen....THANK YOU THANK YOU GOD


99 restaurants nine-nine reasons you always come back for more, ninety-nine a place you are looking forr ninety-nine you always come back for more...
WHo remember this comercial song?...
Yeah I love 99 restaurant, and how that hot chicken parm chicken melt in your mouth...yumm..(haha I'm such a fatty). Well my boss said Lunch was the 99 today I got so excited only to find out the weekly lunch was going to be brother's pizza...I had half chicken and cheese sub which was ok still wanted my chicken parm African and chicken ehn na wa sha I wonder what we will eat if chicken were to vanish.

Speaking of vanish I can't believe I've been doing my summer intern for two months already and I only have one more month left :( I love this job men getting paid well and i'm not even talking about $15 intern a whole lot than that...ok that was kinda TMI....Point is I love making the green without doing so much work...Eh life of an Engineer. Now the guys I work with are another case. They are so hilarious things they joke about and what not. I'm gonna miss my little family in a month (tears)

Speaking of leaving in a month, I have to attend a training on monday and tuesday and they have an exam for it after....SERIOUSLY? I've been here for 2 months and now outta no where they want me to do some training so I can do some job, where was this class all this while?

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Dear pretty self,

Don't ever EVER stay up till 2:00am to wake up and go to work at 6:00am. Bad bad idea reading blogs till 2am and trying to go to work early, only God helped you today because sleep-driving ain't safe.

Moving on, work was great then summer class...urgg how i hate summer class, i sit in class daydreaming of sitting outside in the sun by the beach with my sun glasses or ice cream down the river walk, imagining how much fun everyone else in the world is having except for me. To top it off my School apparently believe the best time for renovation is summer time so most parking lots are closed on campus and it legit took me about 20 mins to get to class today.

Raise your hand if you are not on Facebook...I mean who is not on facebook these days old mamas and old papas with little kids too trying to act all grown up and then comes the stalkers, and those private messages you always get from random people (Girls you know what i Boy i miss the good all days of facebook even though i'm still addicted to it...(Shhhs you did not just hear me say that). Oh the power of Facebook!.

I have not talked to Mr A in a long time and the next thing i got was several notifications on my recently uploaded photos...Followed by a text and then a call...and somewhere along the line BAMMM came this conversation...

Mr A: "You know when someone sees you in picture you are very different"
me: Umm ok what do you mean? how?
Mr A: You know na...
Me: (Thinking in my head: "what is this dude talking about")
long silence
Mr A: I mean you are much more pretty in person than in pictures
Me: Long silence...Uumm ok
Mr A: Did you hear what i said?
Me: Yeah?? Thanks!

Now i did not know what to say, was that a compliment or a sarcastic insult? I mean to me i thought pictures are always better, a picture is worth a thousand words and its takes .000001 effort to smile that's i'm not big at taking/fishing compliments matter of fact i feel embarrass when i get compliments especially in person and usually response with a question mark in my face "Thank you?"...and whisper in my breath i

Anyways enough of me rambling...I could go on and on and on but i'm going to drop my little fingers right about NOW
