"We sometimes wish certain gifts came our way earlier. Sometimes I wish we had met each other some twenty years ago when I was sent into that hell on earth. But on a second thought, I know it wouldn't be as beautiful as it is now. God often take us through the bad to make us appreciate the good when it comes. Even my living for six years as a single mom of four, I met the good, the bad, and the ugly; some came with too much money believing that is what I needed; others came with their "fine boy' thinking Amara is after those things (I am not one of those women who thrive in vanity).

Some people say it is a violation of privacy. But do you consider it disrespectful, guys, if your wife/hubby/GF/BF/Fiancée/Fiancé reads your new SMS before passing it on to you?
JC asked this question online. What do you think, guys?
In our African tradition, it's normal for relatives to move in with a couple: to assist with the house chores or to baby sit the kids or in most cases just to have a place to stay. However, when there are too many people in the house, it sometimes interferes with the couple's relationship, communication and se.x life may be affected as well (especially if the relatives are the wife's people *hehe*).
So, is it really helpful to a marriage for relatives to move in with a couple? Or should a new couple avoid it if they can?

Our teacher also called us "the leaders of tomorrow" 27 years later, IBB and Buhari are still contesting for Presidency. Its either our teacher lied to us about being the leaders of tomorrow. Or tomorrow is yet to come. Who's fooling who?

What happened to Linda can actually happen to any blogger. We may not get it right most of the time and no one is perfect. It's happened to lots of website owners and bloggers, too. Not nice.

Linda will rise and soar to greater heights. This is a momentary setback.It will surely energize her to blow away critics.
Dearest OOB readers,
What do you think about these rules? What do you SINCERELY think about ladies who play hard to get? Is it good or bad? You meet a girl, you think she's hot, do you want her more when she's hard to get? Ladies: Have you had better luck getting guys when you've been hard to get or when you be friendly to them?

"My big regret is not going back to school as I had wanted to. I have been planning to return back to school for quite a long time but when you are making money, seeing yourself being celebrated here and there, you will feel on top of the world.
