A very sad experience

I woke up one Friday morning with the hopes of going home after the day's work to return on Sunday. Reason being that I haven't gone home for a very long time. I went to the market to buy wine, shoes and bags for the people at home. I went to work in the morning and I couldn't wait for work closing time. 

At exactly 5 o'clock,  my boss came into the general office asking me to shutdown and go. I was happy because he just save me from taking a night journey. I left the office by 5:05pm. On getting to the park it was almost 5:30pm. I was the second to the last person that boarded the last available bus. It took about thirty minutes to get out of the hold-up right in front of the motor park. We began our journey at about 6:15pm. 

On the road, we met a couple of hold-up, accident spots and all the hazards involving a close night journey. By 7:35pm, I alighted from the bus, and trekked for about 20 minutes into the estate where my parents are residing. While i was trekking down the road, I was scared. I couldn't make call because of fear of informing any thief around that somebody was around. The estate was very quiet except for the few houses that had their generator on. 

Suddenly, I had a feeling that my parents may not be around, but I pushed it away because I always believed that even if they traveled, my two sisters will always be around. I entered our street and on getting closer, I discovered their was no light in the house. When I got to the gate, the padlock was in place, firmly secured. JESUS CHRIST!!! What is happening? Where do I go by 8:00pm? I called my parents, their phones were switched off. I called my two sisters but they were not picking.  Continue...

What happy couples in love talk about...

Heck, what's more chaotic than being in love? One of the perks of being in a relationship is being able to discuss subjects you avoided during the early stages of dating.  Among the scores of substantive topics people discuss, we've come up with 10 that we believe couples should relish during heart-to-hearts: How To Ace The "What Are We?" Talk. Believe me, if you can't do this with your partner, you are heading for the rocks...

1. Embarrassing moments. If you can't share that awkward moment you are so much ashamed of with your partner, who can you tell them to? Don't be afraid to broach the subject, if you haven't already. We wouldn't be surprised if his are more horrifying than yours.

2. Political viewpoints. How do you feel about the freshly-approved healthcare bill? You don't have to agree with each other, although it would certainly help. A good relationship allows both parties to discuss their own philosophies without taking the opposition personally. 

3. Fears and insecurities. By fears, we don't mean your phobia of earthworms. We're talking about things that make you wake up with gray hairs. What worries you? What do you want to improve in yourself? What are your past skeletons? In being vulnerable, you risk judgement, but more importantly, you chance being understood. Continue...

A Letter written to Women, from Men

Dear Women,
First of all, we're sorry. We're sorry that although we look like men, we often act like boys. We're not even sure what it means to be men anymore. As we grow up, we learn that to be happy is to be self-indulgent and self-centered. We try to make enough money so that we can have the right TV with the right video games in the right home. We want to date you and maybe even marry you but we are scared to focus on someone else instead of ourselves. Isn't it sad that we see committing to you as a potential threat to our happiness instead of a wonderful opportunity?

Here's what we don't understand: True happiness comes from being true men. We think and act like boys who don't want their toys taken away. We look up to "role models" in the media who teach us to get as much gratification out of life as possible. We may claim to be spiritual, or even firm atheists, but pleasure is the god that we worship, whether we realize it or not. Unfortunately, women tend to be just another part of our hedonistic lifestyle. Please know this: True men won't treat you like an irritating obstacle or a sexual convenience. Continue...

Basic skills for marriage

I was conducting a research online and came across this and I decided to share it here with you. Basic skills you need to cultivate before you get married. A lot of guys will think this post is meant for women but i tell you the truth, having been in a relationship myself, I can boldly tell you that conception is wrong. Women are not in a relationship with themselves and so are not the only ones who need the skills. It also applies to the men because it takes two to be in a relationship, it also takes two to work out their marriage. What you need to make your marriage work and avoid break-up:

1. Emotional self-regulation. Young children often get mad, cry, or even hit their siblings. Adults, on the other hand, mostly live their lives in the calm zone. The good news is that adults who get overly emotional, (especially with anger), can learn how to overcome their anger tendencies. If you find that you raise your voice and get mad more than once every several months, or get so mad that you say and do hurtful things, you've got some important learning to do.

2. Communication. Talking tactfully, especially when the issue is something that distresses you, and listening in a way that sustains cooperation, are essential to any marriage. Talking in a way that's complaining, critical, or otherwise hurtful will get you in serious marriage trouble. Dismissing what your partner says, negating what you hear with "but", or ignoring instead of digesting what you hear, is sure to cause extreme marital woes. Continue...

Signs that you may have cancer

These are a few signs I gathered from research. It may help you detect early signs of cancer.
1 White Patches Inside Your Mouth
Smokers and tobacco users should be especially wary of this one: sores inside the mouth or on the tongue that don't go away can be a sign of leukoplakia, which leads to mouth cancer. Bring these to your doctor's attention if you catch them.

2 Changes on Your Skin
If you notice any changes on a wart or mole on your body, or any other changes on your skin, this could be a sign of melanoma, also known as skin cancer. See a doctor or dermatologist right away, melanoma can be treated easily if it's detected early.

3 Sores That Never Heal
If you have a persistent sore or sores that don't seem to heal, you should get them checked out by a doctor right away. Sores inside the mouth can be signs of an oral cancer, and sores on the skin can be a sign of skin cancer. Continue...
