There Are No Shortcuts In Life! - Interview With Wife, Msc Holder And PhD Researcher At Washington State University

Image
The issue of studying abroad has been one that has intrigued me and so many Nigerians. There is this trend for elites and ambitious Nigerians to study for their post graduate degree outside the country. I interviewed Chioma Ezeh who is a graduate of English Education from University of Nigeria, Nsukka. She left for the USA where she studied for her masters, got married and is now researching for her PhD all in that order! Let's see what she has to say....


Let’s meet you
 I am Chioma Ezeh. I am from Anambra state, Nigeria. I am a student at Washington State University where I am currently studying English Language and Technology.


2. What influenced your decision to study abroad?
I love scholarship and have always known deep within me that pursuing a career outside the academia is not where I see myself. I had the hunger to go beyond bachelors and dreams of being at the top in my field. I desired to have better and relevant education. As fate had it, an uncle of mine, who understood…

Poetry: LOVE THAT WOULD STAY

Image
So, this thing about finding love that would stay  was making me think hard today.. Like how does the earth revolve and still make each dawn a new day..?
A spark of emotions today.. And a load of regrets the next day.. All these found love seem not to stay But we cannot continue to sway
We all need that love that would stay.. But how does the chemistry fade?  And when does our emotions start to stray? And why do we betray.. the love that has vowed to stay?
Or let's turn the tables the other way.. And take a long walk down the hallway I hear you say you met them half way.. But their love couldn't make it to the last day..
Still, I ask them the same questions today How did their chemistry fade?  When did their emotions start to stray?  And why did they betray.. the love that has vowed to stay?
Love should not be a causal 360° display Cos each turn doesn't give a new day.. It only drops a bitter ex on the subway.. And a litter of exs on the subway.. is an ugly display.
If you do the heart x-ray,  You w…

MY WORKERS DAY EXPERIENCE AT EAGLES SQUARE

Image
Happy belated workers day all nemyinspired people, may you all reap the fruits of your labour! As you all know, I got employed as a teacher in late May 2016 so this is technically my first workers day. Yay!!   Enough about me and let’s get to the business on ground, I prepared early for  the d day wearing one of my Sunday best and for once my makeup game was lit. I and my mom took so much pctures before we finally left for the venue.  
That's my mama the real comrade
Me
Me and my mama (Do we look alike? ) We finally got to eagles square before 9:00am and when we entered the stadium, the place was already packed full, the thought of standing or sitting under the hot sun for hours made me to shudder inwardly... luckily for us we got the seats some people vacated. There was so much noise there that I wondered if the people were actually listening to the speeches been presented. The labour union leader read a rather sketchy speech that was so sketetal and did not relay any of the problems…

Girl, Let's Shop For A Man! || Amarachi Ebisike

Image
A wise woman once said that choosing whom to date is like going to the mall to do your shopping. In order to save your pocket from running dry, you should have a list! And also be focused on that list. No deviations.
     Now, let's bring this into the dating world. Think of your innocent fragile heart like the currency you use for shopping.  I'm sure none of us treat money carelessly or use it as tissue paper. No, we all value money. Think of your heart in like manner, because it is the currency in this scenario. How we spend this currency shows how much we value ourselves. 
I know shit happens, but a little carefulness and discipline in spending the 'heart currency' will save us a lot of heartbreaks.     Before you write a list of 'what I want in a man' or 'qualities of my dream man', there are a few cogent things you need to ponder on:  *Know Thyself! (What's Your Size?): Self discovery is the first step to a healthy and happy relationship. Who are yo…

Image
T he executive governor of Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose was guest on the AIT show KAAKAKI subtitled the state of the nation. He gave suggestions for the growth of the economy of Nigeria. He stated clearly that the issue of agriculture can never be overstressed, he suggested that a permanent solution should be found for the menace of the herdsmen whose cattle contributes in no small measure to destroy the farms of hardworking farmers. He praised himself for his initiative in curbing the menace of the herdsmen in Ekiti State. The host of the show reminded him of the 20 prophecies he gave for the year 2016 which he claimed were inspired by the Holy Spirit. She went ahead to list some of the 22 prophecies which he gave for the year 2017. They include:
 1. There would be major revolutions or uprising against the federal government because of the economic hardship of the nation.
2. More Judges that are not doing the biddings of the Federal
Government would be arrested and humiliated.
 3. T…

To be playing With the holes on her cheeks
 This girl,
She is knowing how to respect people
She is telling me
She is wanting to be a nurse Me I will be falling sick Everyday Telling mama to…

Back to school ||12 side hustles you can combine perfectly with your studies

Image
Often times, students are discouraged from engaging in any side business because of the possibility of such a business venture distracting them and disrupting their studies negatively. In a country like Nigeria for instance, where the educational system is chaotic, time for lectures are sometimes decided by lecturers and thus susceptible to changes at any point depending on the lecturer’s schedule. I remember sometimes having 7am lectures three times a week when I was in school, other times, I had lectures from 7am to 6pm and some other days I had very few lectures or even lecture free days. With this type of schedule, it is difficult to concentrate on certain businesses, hence one requires businesses that will be flexible enough to fit one’s erratic schedule! I have compiled a list of 12 businesses specially selected to fit your schedule as a student!
