5 Things to do Before Getting Married

GodlyDating101

Are you planning on getting married soon or in the future? I’m sure you are, that’s why you’re here! Check out these five things I believe you must you do.

1. Seek God.

First and foremost, with every decision you make in life, seeking God should come first. I strongly believe that most of our issues in life are due to the fact that we seek God after we’ve already made up our minds. Then when we’re left with regret or in sin, we call out to Him asking “why’d You let me get into this?” But in reality, our emotions or stubbornness led us there.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

2. Deal with any lust issue that you have.

Contrary to popular belief, marriage doesn’t cure lust. We have to die…

MUCH IS EXPECTED…

Hello, you nice person who has stopped by to read random thoughts about important and unimportant stuff. 😚

How are you doing today? I know you’re great. I’m good too, just tired from the Met Gala after party where I hung out with my friends, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. 😌

You know about the Met Gala yeah? It has occurred on the first Monday of May since 1948 in New York city. It is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York city. more info.

Everyone looked fabulous, some more extra than others. How did I look? You can’t say you didn’t notice me and my date…😂😂😂

Who else just looks at school and goes “I just wanna graduate”. It gets tiring. Really. Most times, you just wish that it could be fun all through. Exam season is fast approaching and I’ll soon start awoko (reading at night) cos I need it. Seriously. I’m just envious of my roommate. She’s currently on her I. T and she isn’t writing second semester exams. Sigh.

But hey..

Do you ever feel like people expect so much from you? 😭😭 Like, there’s this image you have to conform to at all times and this reputation you have to protect, especially when you think about your parents, your relatives and even younger ones who look up to you.

You find it hard to step out of line because so much is expected and you cannot afford to disappoint anyone. When you think about the responsibilities you are saddled with, the things you’ve had to give up just to conform your life in a manner that is acceptable and the ‘fun’ things you can’t engage in or when you’re in a position to do some kind of stuff and you’re like “the only thing that’s stopping me right now is the fear of God, home training, and the people that are watching”. 😑

I know most times you just want to relax and be like “what gives?” You’re probably comparing yourself to someone else and you’re like “what about him or her?”, “why must my own be different?” 😭

It gets hard and sometimes you just wish that you didn’t have to answer for your actions. I know.

But you’ll be fine. You’ll be okay. You’re strong and the fact that people expect so much from you is the reason you cannot afford to disappoint so just live your life in the best way possible, pleasing God, without double standards, no matter how hard it gets because MUCH IS EXPECTED! Especially to whom much is given. 😏

Meanwhile, there’s every possibility that you may not hear from me till June or July ‘cos of exams but keep my words of wisdom in your hearts and let them guide you. Okay?

Love,

‘ Ruona ❤️

P.S

Who can relate to this?

Would you like to share your thoughts on this?

I wasn’t really at the Met Ball. You’ve probably figured that out by now. 😂

I really hope I’d get to go one day.

Mrs ‘Ruona Jon Snow.

Happy Easter!!

Praaaaiiisee the Lord!! It’s resurrection season! Jesus is alive!! There’s public holiday today and on Monday!! No classes till Tuesday!! Can I get an hallelujah?

How have I been? I’ve been okay, really. School is just so stressful. Even my smile looks stressed. Yes. Look at the picture again.

I think I spaced out these past two weeks ‘cos I have about 5 assignments to complete and I just wrote a test but school won’t keep me from publishing here.

Back to serious matters 😪😌 Winter is finally here!! (Cue GOT fans screaming in the background 😂) I’m sure everyone knows about Game of Thrones now because of all the hype especially on the 14th of April when the first episode of the final season officially aired. Have you seen the ratings of this series? I’m in awe!

So, I’m unashamedly one of the GOT fans. You should hear me singing the theme song with my angelic voice. 😚 My course mates can testify. 😌 Almost everyone in the world is watching GOT. Emphasis on almost because there are people like this:

And then we have:

😂😂😂

This was my cousin’s status update by the way. Apparently, The Dr Donald is not a fan. This was one of his many hate posts but who cares right? 😂

I started watching the series in my 100 level, second semester. It’s captivating and suspense filled. To me, it’s worth the hype and I have my favorite characters.

My best character till date is Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). I don’t know why but I feel like I can relate to her on so many levels because she grew stronger with each circumstance she was surrounded by.

This is Arya:

My second favorite character is Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) the unburnt, Khaleesi and mother of dragons!! There was a point when I started watching GOT that I’d skip the other scenes and watch her scene first before properly watching an episode. She is strong, beautiful and ooh so intimidating.. Lol. I love it when she says Dracarys. Honestly, we need her dragons for the annoying people in Nigeria. Here’s our queen:

Last but not the least is Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), my boo. Argue with your keyboard but we have something special. So, Oga is so nice and he puts the interests of others before him. His selflessness is just something to be reckoned with. He gave up his crown for a cause. So noble. But with this secret that we found out in episode 1 of season 8, who knows what will happen next? So, Jon Snow in all his finesse:

These are my top three characters in GOT and like I said, it’s worth the hype.

Last Sunday, my roommate wanted to be in on the GOT craziness so we downloaded a summary here. Mind you, it doesn’t give you total knowledge of the 7 seasons. Like, how can you even summarize 7 whole seasons in an hour? I know what I went through that day because we’d watch like two minutes and I’d be explaining for about ten but now, Juliet has basic knowledge of GOT and she won’t be floating when we’re having winter discussions 😏

So, I’m anticipating episode 2 of season 8 while still trying to figure out how I’m going to do my assignments because:

I’m just realizing that after all the noise I made at the beginning of my write up about the holidays, I’m going to be doing book work. Sigh. But I’ll probably go watch a movie tomorrow. I deserve a break.

Going off topic, let me just chip in that I’m laughing at Manchester United and I’m hailing Barcelona and Messi (He’s my guy too 😍). Twas a funny match by the way 😂😂

Anyways, I hope your Easter holiday goes great, especially those ones that are traveling. Where are you people even traveling to for just 4 days? that’s another story for another day.

Till next time loves, Happy Easter!

‘Ruona ❤️

P. S:

Who are your favorite characters in GOT?

Who are your worst characters in GOT?

Who hasn’t seen GOT at all?

Man U or Barca? 😂😂

How are you spending Easter?

CALL ME LOVE DOCTOR. 😚

Back in the day, I used to be a relationship counselor. 😋 Why do I have this feeling that you’re laughing at me?

Hard as it is to believe, people actually brought their issues to me and we tackled them in the comment section on Facebook. That was until I was told to go and read my books because I should at least gain admission and get a degree before thinking about counseling people.

Let’s not forget that I was fresh out of secondary school with no relationship experience whatsoever except you’re willing to count my “boyfriend” who was in 100 level, whom I saw twice a year but that’s a story for another day.

Relationships involve a lot of effort. Let’s be honest with each other. I mean, it’s always good at the beginning, when you’re getting to know each other and you have enough love to give. I think this sweet phase is referred to as the “honeymoon phase”. It usually occurs in the first three months of a relationship. This period, you want to be around your partner, talking about nothing and everything. It can be cute and annoying. Smh.

After the honeymoon phase, there’s another phase that I can’t give a name right now but in this phase, you start getting to know your partner and you start having those little fights, noticing little faults and all that stuff. This is where you begin to know and accept your partner’s flaws. I think that once you survive this stage, there’s hope that you may be able to build a nice relationship.

I’m listening to Silence by Marshmello ft. Khalid right now.

Okay, back to business. It is known that at different points, your relationship tends to be difficult because people are different from each other and it takes one to understand one but there are a lot of mistakes people make in their relationships and I’m going to highlight a few.

Lack of communication: Relationships are about communicating with each other. That’s the only way you’ll be able to know what the other person is thinking. Nobody is a magician and you can’t expect issues to be resolved without communicating. People fail to do this and it kills relationships faster than one expects. Nobody is saying you have to talk all day, everyday but it is necessary to take time out to hear from each other. You also have to be open and honest with each other, while avoiding secrets.

General Relationship: I’m sorry, I couldn’t get another catch phrase for this point but when I explain, you’ll understand. These days, people are involved in relationships with themselves and the rest of the world. Most times, they involve social media and portray their relationships as perfect and will not allow the single people to be single in peace. 😑😑 Nobody said that you can’t show off your boo on social media but when you’re in the relationship for the approval of the rest of the world, something is wrong. Let me not get started on those people that will rather talk to their friends about their relationship issues instead of their partners. It’s just so sad. Mind you, this is different from getting advice. In summary, if you’re in a relationship and your activities center more on the opinions of people other than you and Bae, watch it because you tend to lose the purpose of the relationship that way.

Taking each other for granted: In Nigeria, this is referred to as “see finish”. 😑 Most times, it’s usually “I’ve gotten this person to fall, no need to put effort anymore”. Okay, how exactly do you expect the relationship to work when you feel like you have to reduce the amount of love and affection you started with?

Failure to balance each other out: Did you know that every relationship is give and take? Well it is and it’s that way because it involves two people. 😌 One person cannot be the one always giving or spending in a relationship. It involves two people. It cannot be one person always calling or making decisions. It involves two people!! A lot of people are guilty of not calling or checking on their partners because they just naturally expect them to call and this mentality of “It’s the guy that’s supposed to do the spending?” Why now? 😥 Eventually the person will get tired and things may begin to go downhill.

Forming what I don’t know in public: A lot of people don’t fancy Public Display of Affection (PDA) and its understandable because on a normal day, if I see you, I’d probably gag and say something annoying and won’t even apologize 😂😂 but there are some others!! Those ones only love themselves in private and if you see them outside, you won’t even know they’re together. If it’s something that has been agreed on previously, then it’s fine but if it’s a situation where you basically deny ur partner in public, it is plain wrong and just sad!! Are you ashamed of your partner? Why are you together??! I mean, do you know how embarrassing it can be when bae reaches for your hand when you’re strolling and you pull away? Do you know how painful it is? 😭😭😭

Finding Faults: I know of people that will just sit down and be like “me and bae have not quarreled today, let me look for trouble”. What is wrong with you? 🙄 We know that nobody is perfect and everyone tries to be their best. You can’t just decide to pick offense at every little thing your partner does because some things are meant to be overlooked and it is not right to go out of your way to find faults or get angry at every little thing. It’s just plain wrong.

Other mistakes include complaining a lot, lack of commitment, making disrespectful remarks, imposing your will on your partner, ignoring your partner’s opinions, pride, lack of support, among others.

I’m stopping here ‘cos I’m tired and I’m writing this by 12:17 AM. Plus if we were to discuss relationship issues, we won’t finish today. Anyways, these are some of the basic mistakes people tend to make in their relationships and I’m here to provide enlightenment. You’re welcome. 😘😘

Meanwhile, you don’t have to kill yourself for any relationship especially if the other party isn’t willing to try and if you don’t see a future with the person. Also, remember that Jesus loves you more than anybody ever would.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

EARPIECE CHRONICLES

I’m laughing 😂😂

Taisah's Diary

(Clears throat)

First and foremost, you are welcome to my mini blog where I will be posting a lot of familiar and random happenings of concern.

I don’t know why I decided to start my blog with the “earpiece chronicles” but, that was the thought that stole it’s way into my head while I was thinking of what to post.

One of my experience using the earpiece was… “I was listening to one popular afro Nigerian music, while tapping my feet and lip syncing. Feeling myself and feeling like a rapper, I started waving my hand just like rappers do and nodding my head, not until my mum stood in front of me, watching me like I was some specie she was trying to examine. It was like I was in a trance, I saw her lips moving but couldn’t tell what she was saying…

WIFE MATERIAL

I’m not going to dwell on how much I’ve been procrastinating my updates because I’ll just bore you with excuses…

Today’s the 21st of March 2019 and I’m writing this by 12:17am. Mind you, I started writing this on the 19th. I’ve successfully resumed at school for second semester. I remember thinking that I’d share my travel experience with you but I was asleep throughout the journey.

Well, I’ve been trying to remind myself that I’m back at school but I’m not sure my brain will be getting that message till next week. I checked my results by the way, they were good, thank God.

In the space of three weeks, I’ve grown taller (better believe it), I’ve gotten a new pair of heels, reorganized my playlist, finally watched new movies, turned 20 and gotten joint custody of this beautiful puppy, Pixie.

Don’t believe what I said about joint custody. She belongs to my friend.

Moving on, there’s this responsibility that comes with taking care of pets. They’re like children in a way because they’re dependent on you for food, shelter, attention, and whatever else you have to offer. Caring for them involves the investment of your time and money.

Responsibility involves being accountable for your actions. You either take the praise or the blame. These days, we shy away from responsibilities. I’m not necessarily talking about delegated duties because it’s a lazy generation after all.. Lol.

Let’s focus on being accountable for our actions. That’s being responsible. We tend to quickly shift the blame to other people when issues arise. It may not be conscious but at the first instance, we tend not to own up to our short comings because there’s always this strong need to justify our actions. Most of us don’t even accept that we’re wrong until it has been consistently drilled into our minds.

Nobody says we shouldn’t try to explain ourselves but we should also take corrections and own up to our mistakes when need be. Responsibility shows maturity. It’s not necessarily by the words that come out of your mouth but your actions. Okay, that’s all for today.

By now, you should have noticed that the title of this writeup doesn’t have anything to do with the writeup itself. I just remembered the other day when my dad called me wife material. 😌

So, let’s try to be responsible. Amen? Amen. Meanwhile, I have a class by 8 and back to back classes from 11 till 3. I need motivation 😭😭

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

Ps:

How’s school treating you?

On a scale of 1-10, how responsible are you?

Do you love pets? Any experiences?

Who thinks I’m wife material? 😁😁

Buharist or Atikulator: Game Over.

Zephyr's

Strategy beats Twitter rants, as Muhammadu Buhari wins a second term as the President of Nigeria.

Don’t swallow me nau, I didn’t want him to win too.

But oh well, God’s will be done.

Now, analyzing the whole election process, from both points of view, we have first, the Buharist movement, strategizing and planning as to how to emerge victorious. On the other hand, Atikulators, voting through Twitter polls and not their PVCs. Truth be told, Atiku Abubakar really didn’t have any true supporters, if he did, then they were very few. The bulk of votes the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) garnered was from ‘anti-Buhari’ people, or people who just wanted a change. They were tired of the All Progressive Congress’ (APC) promised change that yielded only hardship for Nigerians.

Considering the picture below,

“The North Remembers!”

The strategists, APC, with Tinubu the Jagaban, stormed the North, campaigning heavily there…
