Making the best of every fresh line.

The year has almost come to an end. Wow! I remember the beginning of this year. Quite a lot has happened, and I'm thankful for how far I have come. I'm thankful for a lot of things.

I've cried a lot this year, but I have smiled and laughed way way way more than I have cried.

Every year has different trials, different things that test your strength, your beliefs your faith... Some years are harder than others. On reflection, 2016-2018 have had differently themed tests, passed some, failed some, in all, I have come out wiser, and I am still on the mission of being a strong woman in every sense of the phrase.

I believe it's important to reflect on things, not only yearly; but daily, hourly, weekly. Only makes one wiser.

I'm thankful for a lot of things.

I am thankful because I believe all things are working together for my good regardless of how bleak things may seem right now.

I am super thankful for this blog, my little space for sharin…

There's no one size fits all rule for dating

Holaa!! it feels like it's been ages... I'm watching a very silly movie with my brother, it's so cheesy, so much that we are predicting everything, and we are getting it right.

Anywhos, yesterday, while we were making dinner, my sister and I were awwing and oohing at Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' wedding photos. They are so pretty! Mom had to ask us why we were squealing.

Later at night, as we were slowly drifting off to sleep, we were talking about what Nick said about really knowing and dating her for 5 months and then just knowing they were right for each other.

I have heard of shorter dating periods. 3-4 months, and I must say, I am very intrigued whenever I hear such stories. Some of these people last so long; they never divorce,  while some 'grow out of love'. Different strokes for different folks, you know.

While there's absolutely not one size fits all rule for dating, I generally wouldn't advice anybody to get ma…

Hey y'all, how's your week going? Just made some cookies with my sister. I don't think there's any exciting thing I have coming my way (that I know of).

So, I have a few fun things around the internet you might like to read. Enjoy!


Who knew you could fry Okra? I know about okra being in salad, I know about it being cooked as soup; never heard of it being fried. I guess we learn new stuff every time.

Important stuff  you can learn about marriage even as a single person.

Awww this is such a sweet love story made me smile so wide. 

The first five paragraphs tugged at my heart's strings. We should learn to celebrate our little victories.

She swapped her morning routine to self care practices and saw changes. I wake up and stay on the bed for an extra hour lol.


How to reduce technology's hold on your child and even you.

My friend sent me this song and I loved every bit of it. It's been on repeat.

Have fun, catch y'all soon.

The simplest Banana bread recipe ever!

Image
Feeling: Content
Time: Started yesterday, ended today.



I really think banana cake should be called... I really think banana bread should be called banana cake or something like that. It's way way easier than the regular bread that requires about an hour of proving in total and proper kneading.

I had been wanting to try this out for quite a while now, and I eventually tried it out yesterday and it was perrfeeccttt. My siblings loved it so much. Side note: my first brother, thinks I'm the most adventurous with food, probably after my dad.  Means a lot tehehe. Sister wanted that title though.

Okay, this banana bread requires very few ingredients:

3 ripe Bananas
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 Eggs
2 tablespoons of melted margarine
1 teaspoon of Baking powder
A pinch of Salt
7 tablespoons of Sugar (up to you, really)

Directions.

In a bowl, mash three ripe Bananas with a fork, till it's pulpy.

In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and mix.

Beat two eggs and add to th…

Holaa! Buenas tardes. Cómo estaís? (😉)
Well, I'm good myself. Just sleepy.  It's the middle of the week. Trust you've been fine so far.

I like reading a lot. Not necessarily overly serious stuff.  Just different stuff all around the internet. I have some pretty fun links for you to check out.

I may be some type of weird, but having fun links to check out gives me some kind of boost. For instance, if I have a lot of work to do, and I have some interesting stuff to read on the internet, it serves as some kind of incentive for me.

Oh! I'm not sure if you remember, but last week , I told you I'd try to make these cookies . I did, and my siblings loved them!!

Enjoy!

This 69 year old man wants to change his age legally.  Found this funny and weird.

Failing is a feeling long before it becomes an actual result. Michelle Obama's interview with Oprah Winfrey is everything!!

Even six year olds have a lot to think about.

My tummy's rumbling…

THE TEENS CORNER! Hangout with MotherGold.

Image
Hola,

So, last week we started the series on teenagers, where we chat with them, get to know what's going on in their minds about different things. We hung out with fourteen year old Marie who told us about why she doesn't think it's advisable to date anyone at her age.

Today, we'll be hanging out with MotherGold who's seventeen years old, a student of Caleb University in Nigeria. She's currently studying International Relations.

The first time I met MotherGold, the first thing that really struck me was her very unique name, a plus was that she was quite friendly.

Let's dive in!

Hi MotherGold, what's a typical Saturday like for you?

Um it's a lazy day for me in school, I just watch movie and play, but when I'm home it's a busy day.

Who / what motivates you?

Well, my dad inspires me.



What do you think turning 18 would change for you?

Turning 18 will change my way of thinking and behaving. Well, my life generally.

Journaling: Be free. Be silly. Be you.

Feeling: Pissed (coming out of it though)

You have probably guessed (with this blog)  that I like journaling a lot. I don't know if it's weird (frankly don't care), but my favorite section of any shopping mall is the stationery section. Gosh! I could live there. I like the cute pens, sparkly pens, highlighters, and most of all cute notepads. I'm a sucker for stuff like that. After this section are the biscuits and chocolates aisles.


I currently own about five (six, technically ) cute notepads. Frankly speaking, I need more.

Let me tell you their uses.

1. For personal growth and development.  I don't write in it so often. It was a gift given to me when I turned 20.

2. I use this for Spanish lessons which I've been slacking so badly in. I keep telling myself I should pick it up and be better. Now that I'm publicizing it, I'll be more faithful about it. Perhaps for every blog post, you'll get a little bit of Spanish. This is such a big com…
