My experience at Gasparilla 2015!!


So I decided to go for one of the best festival this weekend and it was awesome. It is the only festival that allows drinking on the road (some wet zones), lots of shouting, lots of beads thrown by pirates. It was so much fun. Lots of jaw dropping dressed girls ( shorts were bum exposing) and I ran into this Harley Davidson bike.... AWESOME!!! I almost got on it, but I didn't.
So basically Gasparilla is a pirate festival that celebrates Jose Gapar who was a mythical Spanish pirate captain that operated in Southwest FL. Everyone in Tampa is really friendly, lots of dudes with beards, I love. I met one dude that asked if we spoke english in Nigeria, I was dumb founded. He was from Maine, I guess he doesn't go out much.

The food wasn't so good, I mean it was a terrible imitation of my precious Jollof rice. Hunger was real so I had to eat it all. I took pictures of a lot of people and random things too. I got a total of 17 beads, some people has close to 50 beads round their. There were about 500 thousand people for this event.
It was crazy, if you had a tiny bladder and needed to pee, you had to flash your 'boobs' for a toilet pass or pay $5. If you wanted more beads with plastic genitals, you also has to flash your boobs. That was the trend of the day.
I took a long walk on the longest walk way in the world, bayshore boulevard, it was beautiful in the sunset. All in all, it was a day worth writing about. It a festival you must see, mark your calendars for the last Saturday in January 2016. You would absolutely love it.

Eye Candy alert!!!

Are Men Scum: The godly man guide

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum
Last week, I watched Larry Charles' dangerous world of comedy on Netflix and the third episode focused on sexism.  It turns out that Nigeria's comedy industry thrives on sexists jokes that objectify women, normalise rape and encourage the exploitation of women. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever watched. It's interesting that many think rape is a thing to joke about and the audience laughs at those vile jokes that involve victim blaming. Sexism is broadly seen in our society from the blue collar workers to the board room bosses, from Nollywood movies to product commercials. It is so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we don’t intend to hurt women with our words or actions, it is just a thing of a "normal thing". The truth is I am not trying to vilify anyone. The average man was dealt sexism as a part of being in this present day society. The good thing is you can unlearn all of these thin…

Have faith, you will make it

Faith it till you make it
"Fake it till you make" was my go-to word and action while I was doing my post-graduate studies. For those that don't know what this means it is simply the act of imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset until you achieve your goals even when everything is not going your way. Basically, you may be discouraged on the inside about a situation but you act as though you are positive about it on the outside. For science lovers, this act is actually based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). But since we are Christians, I decided to title it faith it till you make it because I realize that faking it keeps us limited at our own abilities. But when you “faith it”, you will assuredly make it!
Mark 11:23-23 (TLB) In reply Jesus said to the disciples, “If you only have faith in God—this is the absolute truth—you can say to this Mount of Olives, ‘Rise up and fall into the Mediterranean,’ and your command will be obeyed. All that’s requi…

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.
