  1. I don’t like light or brightness in a room, I live in the dark most of the time, I even had to get dark curtains for my room, just to make sure I shield myself from the natural light….I wonder myself how weird I can get.
  2. I have never had (by had I mean, I have never, ever had a taste of) Pizza, Burger, Shawarma, or any pastry that has vegetables or sausage in it, in fact I just recently started eating fried rice with vegetables or even Gala (Nigerians know what I mean, lol), it’s hard to believe but that’s true, that’s me. The funny thing is that with all these my selection, people who have tried to change just give up because  I don’t think I’ll ever change, I’m too comfortable with it…..WIERDO


  1. Something else in line with the food talk that you don’t know about me, is that, I cannot eat any food that’s not prepared by my mum or my aunt (one particular one to be specific), my sisters, and three other of my friends which by the way took some time for me to adapt to. The reason, because I know some of you would be asking, is that there’s this weird feeling I get from my tongue to my throat that makes me wanna puke if I try to have even a taste of the food. Since I was little, I’ve been this way, so I’m already used to it already…..I WONDER WHY MYSELF


  1. I can be very very very very very and very persistent if I want something, I always get you to do exactly what I want, the good thing is that I do that very nicely, so, that magic always works….*wink wink*


  1. I have a very strong phobia for rats and mice, so much so that I’d rather accommodate a snake in my room(yes I mean that), than have a rat in my room for a second more, so since I live in a hostel, before you enter my room, you must be prepared to shut the door almost immediately, even if it means locking your foot out and entering only with your head,…lol…..hahahahah Hannah OOH


  1. I’m  waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too organized for my liking, I’m so detailed in everything, to the extent that I can’t handle loosing anything,..even a spoon I could go through any length to find it and if I don’t I feel like I lost something so dear to me, I have actually cried for a spoon before…….*Oh my dear spoon, I miss you*


  1. I wash my hands almost every time I step out, especially since I started living in the hostel. Before I come back into my room, even if it was just to attend to someone in front of my room…..hmmmmm, na so I neat reach?


  1. I (used to) procrastinate alot……….hmmmm,..I even pray about it, before I used to think there was a spirit behind it..lmao…true ooh,..FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WAIT FOR NEW POSTS FROM ME, NOW YOU KNOW WHY (covers face), but I’m getting better though, I’m improving everyday and I thank God for that……AMEN


  1. I don’t like trying new things, especially regarding food….I judge the book by its cover, I don’t need to taste it before I reject it, and NO, YOU CANNOT TAKE ME OUT FOR A SPECIAL DATE INVOLVING FOOD, BECAUSE I WILL DISAPPOINT YOU MY DEAR…..I’m very “LOCAL”, in fact the only soups I have ever tasted in my life and I eat, are, Egusi, Ogbono, Okro and Efo-Riro and THANK YOU I DON’T WANT MORE….
  2. I love people so much that I say I love you to everyone, even though we are not that close, just because I’m that loving and sweet, but I have never said I love you to my mum or my dad in front of them,…I just recently started saying that on the phone and I don’t think I’ve said that up to 4 times, but in my heart and my mind,…I say that all the time to them….that’s really weird I know but trust me….I’m gonna work on that this year when I get back to Nigeria…I’ve received special anointing for For those people wondering,…it’s not like we are not that close,’s just that I’m shy, I guess due to the way I was brought up when I was younger. hmm

So guys I just counted them and they are already complete…….wow,…I too am amazed at all these stuff….maybe if you want me to do a #30thingsAboutMe Tag, you can say that in your comment below, I’ll see what I can do about that.

WOW, this was truly a refreshing post to do,..I was laughing at myself all through and wondering what kind of person I am..

I love you both so so much.

Hi Everyone, I know I haven’t posted in a while and I owe you, but this is one post that I just had to share with you guys and I even had to share it without taking permission (please Charles, don’t come and flog me in Ukraine ooh) lol.
I laughed until I slapped my self on the cheek and started to cry.
It was done by one of my very first male bloggers that I absolutely love. He blogs in a very unique and inspiring way and you guys would understand me when you finish reading this post. Make sure to go check his blog and and follow him to get more of this juicy stuff on the go. Thanks Charles for letting me share in advance. Love you.

Enjoy your read my friends and don’t forget to thank me in the comment section. lol


Nigerians are very ‘funny’ people in every sense of the word. No logic is yet defined to explain away our idiosyncrasies.
In dealing with a Nigerian there are two things you should bear in mind.
As an undergrad we read a drama book “Who is Afraid of Tai Solarin” and the book left an indelible mark upon my soul in dealing with Nigerians.
The summary is the colonialists were frustrated at the limited effort of the newly introduced judicial system. Many natives didn’t have faith in it and not a few lie through their teeth even on oath.
In the midst of this crisis came a native judge who understood the psyche of the Nigerian soul.
During the administration of the oath with the Bible or Quran, the judge leans enough to whisper to the oath taker:
“Beware of what you say, there’s ‘Olugbohun’ inside this bible!”
Hot palpitation rang…

Hello everyone, beautiful people so dear to my heart, how well are you doing (notice I didn’t ask how you are doing but how well you are doing, as you can only do well), hope great things are happening for you and through you. I have indeed missed our very special communication. I know how the flow has been since the beginning of the year and by flow I mean the manner in which I have written posts and the consistency in which I have followed up on the posts. So in this post I have written down the plans and schedules that will go on for the next few months on the blog until I write my qualifying exams (which of course has been the reason for my going AWOL intermittently and I sincerely apologize for that).

Moving on from that state of Guilt, I am happy to announce that you will definitely begin to reap from your labor of typing in and searching for my blog, so to speak to get a dose of its beautiful, rich and transforming content.

The first change you might have already observed is the fact that the blog has been renamed somewhat. Although you will find that the name is originally the name used for the web address of the blog, so its not totally new.

PHRONESIS (will do a brief and insightful post on the name soon so all your questions will be answered), by the way for those who don’t have any I deal, its a Greek word.

ImageSecondly, I will now submit posts twice in a week. This is because, it will help balance the time I spend with other important things and with you guys, however, I might drop in posts in between these days depending on how free I am and what post I have prepared. But just to be orderly and for you to be expectant, I choose to make it twice in a week on Mondays and n Fridays (y’all should clap for me ooh, its a big deal *smiling*)

So be expectant to receive a mail or an alert on your reader that I have published a new post.

This is mine and your year of Greatness and so, we will do great things together. I know I can bank on your cooperation. With that, I wanna really appreciate everyone of you, you have shown me that you believe in me. I know I have found a family in you guys. From the messages I get from few of you, it makes me wanna keep doing this. God has blessed you immensely, you’re all soo lovely.

Having made my point clear, I wanna say that today’s posted is counted for a post, even though some of you might already be saying, “OJORO HANNAH” in your minds, lol. I cannot shout ooh, I have to seize the opportunity na, or what would you do if you were in my shoes. lolImage

Anyway, you should expect a post on Friday or before then, anything is possible.

I still have enjoyed my writing to you today. It’s always a pleasure and a privilege that i’m grateful for.

With so much love in me for you, I say, have a beautiful and glorious week ahead.


Don’t stop saying who you are, you are a success going somewhere to happen. I believe in you all.

You can send me a personal message and reach me on,
