100 Truths about Pinkus

 *** Disclaimer *** This has been in my DRAFTS for well over four years now. I just realized I never published it – perhaps because I didn’t consider it quite important or interesting. I have a few seconds on my hands now though. So, just for the fun of it, I am going through this…

Word for the Week

Today I want to share words of wisdom, again by John C Maxwell. I pray they encourage you this week (and beyond). *** You can reach your potential tomorrow if you dedicate yourself to growth today. Remember, to change your world, you must first change yourself. To do that: 1. See yourself clearly. 2. Admit your flaws…

Ranti, The Ultimate

I’m going to write a short story again. No, wrong, I shall write much more than merely one. I shall write quite a few. I’m excited. That writing-mood has finally caught me again. Being angry and irritated/ irritable does that to you. It opens your eye. Makes you see possibilities, how things could or should…

The Sweetest Taboo..?

I am not one to condone sin, no. Me? No, not ever! However, I am one to often enter into it. Not “fall” you see, as I hardly ever trip. I make decisions, more or less well informed, and then decide to face the consequences. I wish. More often than not, the real effects of…

Wheatbaker!!

Alright, so today a really brief post: I’ve had a tiny bit of fun so far, and a few places I keep going back to: Paris Deli Cafe Vergnano (aka Double 4) and Wheatbaker!!! So, naturally, I go wherever I go, to try and to test; and then, should I love it enough.. I go…

Good-bye 2012!

A message a friend sent me earlier and I thought to share.. Today, I lay still, reminiscing & reflecting on the outgoing year. Reality gradually dawns that in a few hours, we’ll be bidding 2012 farewell just like the years before it. It will soon enter into eternal archive & would only be remembered when…

Manners 101

Today a very brief but extremely important post. Yesterday noon I met with my oldest friend ever, literally. Oldest in the sense that I’ve known her longer than any other friend; almost as long as I’ve known my siblings: we went to kindergarten together. Anyway, although interesting, I’m not hear to recall our conversations, but…

Living Life In A Cell

This post was inspired by Burna Boy’s Freedom, recent events, and many memories; some of which I’m going to share with you today. The bold italic lines are his lyrics. * * * Problem, problem, problems. Could somebody show me a way that I can solve them? They calling police and they’re saying that I rubbed…

Chill & Drink Juice

“This is my time to chill and drink juice.” I couldn’t help but smile. This is probably my favourite line of a song I don’t even know the title of. If I had listened to this particular line a year or two ago, I would have raised an eyebrow in confusion; but not today. I perfectly understand….

A Friend In Death

Everything in life happens for a reason. Nothings just happens for the sake of it, believe me. Death too has a way of teaching us a lesson. Sometimes, however, we don’t live to find out what it was.. * * * Yesterday I re-connected with an old London-friend of mine. It was funny (weird, rather…

Just For The Sake of It

We all have opinions; sometimes we share them, sometimes we don’t. But I want to introduce something else to you today: Having none. And no, I don’t just mean keeping your opinion to yourself once in a while. When asked for my opinion on certain issues, sometimes- believe it or not- I have none. And I would…

She’s Back!!

Quite a few of you have been bombarding me with “When are you going to blog again?”-questions, and I am pleased to finally answer y’all! It’s been a very busy (almost) two months for me, and I cannot/ will not/ must not/shall not lie: I’ve really missed writing! Well, to be exact, I have been…

A Season of Separation

  First things first: I want to apologize for my prolonged absence. Sorry! I’ve been really busy and have hence not really had the time to blog. Well, this is going to be a brief post anyway. I’m taking some time out. Yes, again. There are so many things on my mind right now and…

Name And Win A JEZREEL DESIGNS Clutch!

I don’t usually advertise stuff, but I just had to share the following: Jezreel Designs is bringing out a new bag but are having troubles naming it. All the better for us, as they have now decided to go public with it. This is great news (for us)! They are asking fans to NAME THE…

TOP 5: Streams of Thoughts and Poetry

Okay, so I’ve decided to share my favourite five “streams of thoughts and poetry” posts with you and tell you the story behind them. 5. Like A River The most recent of these posts happens to be one of my favourite; although quite a few people thought it was a rather dark one. I like it because it…

She Was Raped Too..

Disclaimer: If you thought any of my previous posts were too personal and it made you feel a bit uneasy, this one will do the same. Please refrain from reading on! To those who chose to continue: Please share! Whether they are black or white, beautiful or distracting, believers or atheists, there is something everyone…

This Is Me

Someone said my blog was too personal: I didn’t know what to say. Maybe I’ll have a reply on another day. I like to think of it as my bible in a way; my words are all a reflection of me. Why not just get to know and see? In all honesty, I really don’t know…

I Think, Therefore I Am…Really?

We’ve all head or read of them: earth, water, fire and air. But how many of us have given it any more thought? Today, I want to share something extremely interesting I came across some days ago: The Elements- in relation to intelligence! The Element of Air The intellect in every man is God. MENANDER…

A Little Sleep

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands.. A little too much chocolate, a little too much cheese and wine, a little too much indulgence.. Getting carried away. Isn’t this how it always starts? Isn’t that how we always get trapped? The secret is always in the detail, the little things…

Knightsbridge: Maroush

This shall be today’s final update. I’m fully aware of the fact that I have been depriving you of some ME, and I’m really sorry about that. Hence, why I’m trying to make up by giving you a 3-in-1 today. *innocent smile* Yesterday (Tuesday, June 19) I accompanied Toyin and her sister to a handful of flat-viewings…

Things Are Happens!!

Hey guys, This is going to be a very brief post.. I know I went AWOL. I have been so busy. I travelled to help with final preparations of my wonderful friends’ wedding and simply haven’t had the time to share something beautiful on my blog. I also just rubbed some hot rub all over…

Excitement

Ever felt the inexplicable? That feeling, a reassuring confidence, that something absolutely awesome is about to take place in your life? Like, you can’t quite put your finger on it, but you know something exceedingly great is about to happen.. The fulfilment of a dream or vision can well be likened to being pregnant. You know there…

Faulheit

*walks into room with lowered gaze* There are so many things on my mind, so many stories to tell.. but I.Am.Feeling.Lazy! Can’t seem to get my head round it.. and my fingers to type. Guess me sharing something is still better than not posting at all.. I shall soon write again! ( ._.) *walks off*

A Bit More, A Bit Better..

I met a very good friend of mine today, Emmanuel. Although I was very glad to see him, it was a not so beautiful encounter. Emmanuel moved to London (from Vienna) shortly after I did. Since we’ve both been busy moving between cities and continents over the past couple of years, we don’t get to talk or…

Two Days in a Week

My dad has taken it upon himself to share a piece of wisdom before every evening devotion with us. Last night, it was this beautiful piece. I’ve decided to share it because there is a lot of truth in it. Let your mind be at ease. (As I speak to you, so I speak to myself)….

A Beautiful Encounter

Something beautiful just happened and I simply had to blog about it. *** I took the underground back home from wherever I was coming from, and “met” those two guys. There were empty seats beside them but- not wanting to give the appearance of wanting to sit close to “fine boys” I chose a seat…

While I Still Can..

Doing this has been on my mind for a very long time; so today, I AM. This will not be a beautifully written post, it will simply be one from my heart. **** “A Tribute to My Friend Ayo/ Joy/ Peace/ Hate. Just to tell him/her how much I loved her. You will never be…

Welcome back.. to ME!!

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged, just to find the ways in which you yourself have altered. ~ Nelson Mandela In light of this, my break is over! The first officially post will follow in just a few minutes. Sit back, and enjOy!

A Timely Break..

“Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.” – Socrates In my opinion, a month is too long, especially when one’s love for blogging is strong.. I shall be back!

Recommended: Maggie Sottero

Don’t judge me, it’s a female thing- looking at wedding dresses although you’re not engaged, not dating, not seeing anyway.. *sigh*. This is one I just came across and simply had to share.. I.Am.Tempted. iLove! Camden – by Maggie Sottero.

Recommended: Underwear

No need stating the obvious? I obviously do not mean I recommend wearing underwear ;), rather: wearing the right underwear. To be more specific- and to put all of you out of your misery- wearing the right bra! (For those men who wish to be enlightened further, brag about their knowledge in front of both…

Beauty-ful II

Xavier Rey is a photographer I came across many years ago. His photography is absolutely amazing; mainly black & white. What I appreciate the most is his skill in shooting breath-taking still pictures that seem to be moving. Creating pictures that really do say more than a thousand words. Check out his website for more…

Beauty-ful

I’ve been spending a lot of time on tumblr recently. Today I’m sharing a few beautiful pictures I’ve come across. The fact that they mainly feature females, is not intentional…

What Would YOU Do?

Today I am sharing a short excerpt from yesterday’s entry on The John Maxwell Company. I am sharing the intro, but am encouraging you to click on this link and read the rest. You certainly will not regret it. Enjoy… and pOnder! The following moral/ethical dilemma supposedly was included on an actual job application: You…

Who/ What Are You?

1. Introversion or Extroversion Every person has two faces. One is directed towards the OUTER world of activities, excitements, people, and things. The other is directed inward to the INNER world of thoughts, interests, ideas, and imagination. While these are two different but complementary sides of our nature, most people have an innate preference towards energy from either the OUTER or…

Unnamed

Alright.. Pinkus is feeling random again, so a few things today 🙂 1. *beating of exotic drums* I’m back in Vienna!! Yh, yh.. I know, I said that not too long ago.. but here I am again.. just landed at Vienna Schwechat this evening, and am more than glad to be back! After my trip…

From Omidan to Miss

“Always late. Temi, where are you?” She was getting restless.. With so many eyes on her, she felt weird, to say the least. She had not the slightest idea why she attracted so much attention this day. Ladies were looking, whispering, pointing; even men stopped, turned, looked. It made no sense. Omidan felt uncomfortable, very…

MBTI: The INTJ

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgement.(Wikipedia)…

aDDiction*

I came across a number of blogs by young Nigerian adults today, and must say: I’m hooked!! I think when reading other people’s blogs I fall into the trap of (just like YOU my dear family members and friends who always read but hardly ever comment) to have a laugh, and move on. BUT: I…

Note: Pictures

So, it has been brought to my attention (by quite a few of you) that my blog is in dire need of PICTURES!! lol I am well aware of that. I do apologize for not having uploaded any so far; there is a good explanation for that: I need to sort out my camera’s battery…..
