Career Talks: Opt for a steady climb

Hey lovelies
First things first, when you think of success, think of why you want it. Ask yourself this question.
"To show people that you too can be rich?"
Also ask yourself how you want to go about getting this wealth.
Seriously, Ill gotten wealth can torture your very existence. If you want it, it's best to do it right.

One of my readers sent me a message the other day. I had some free time so I had a quick chat with him. 
He was depressed because he was working so hard whereas his friends that were putting in less efforts were "very successful." They were driving fancy cars and basically 'living the life'. While he on the other hand felt like a total failure. He was sure that following the process he was going through, he would still be in the toiling phase for a couple of years before things ever started to look gleam. He felt bad for ever considering the longer route when there were so many faster lanes he could have taken.

I have some very innovative friends

Hey Lovelies
I love my friends 'cause they make me laugh a lot, like literally laugh a lot. Recently, it has been incredible. 
Is it me not catching up with the trends or are all my friends getting too ambitious delusional by the day?
So here are different discussions I had with 3 different friends.

Are you being abused?

Hey Lovelies
A lot of people are in abusive relationships and they have no clue. We are more tuned to recognize physical abuse yet are oblivious of the other kinds. More women tend to be victims of physical abuse while men are more often dealt the other types. These are just generalizations because any one can be a victim of any kind of abuse. The most important thing is being able to recognize the many forms of abuse and protecting yourself from them.

Career Talks: Dare to be different

Hey Lovelies
For today's post, I am bringing another of my plenty tales from my days in Hungary.
Those years really shaped me a lot.

I resumed school later than most people, most of them were coming from all around Europe and I was coming from far away Africa. By the time I resumed, I had a talk with the registrar who told me I was so far behind on the course load and I would need to work twice as hard to ensure I wasn't left behind.

Hey Lovelies
Here are a few things you can do to stay stuck in her head even when she is sleeping. Dreams? Nightmares? At least you're safely in her consciousness and unconsciousness LOL

Lose to Win

Hey Lovelies
I bet most of you think this would be about those that lost during the just concluded elections in Nigeria. Naa, I'm so happy we are so done with that now and I want to really facilitate our moving away from all that to "normal issues".
If it were to be just me, Nigeria would need to pause with elections until there is a major upgrade in the electoral system. Too many lapses with unnecessary risks to people's lives.
Almost everyone I called had tales of discrepancies in their polling units and no one seems to understand that these issues are hugely significant.

There is so much I can tell you about why I hate politics as played in Nigeria (ESP the one in my state) but like I like to say, I have no interest whatsoever for very apparent reasons. I am not sure if that might change say in 20 years or maybe 10, and that is because we are really hoping that things would change for the better, but right now? I am so not interested in even listening to anyone that is talking about Nigerian politics because they usually concentrate on vested interests.

Well done to everyone that braved all the challenges to go out and vote. 

Moving on, I was watching this performance by Fantasia and omg, that girl can sing.

Thank You JBS amazing readers

Hey Lovelies
Whoop Whoop! We reached an interesting feat on this blog last week.
We recorded 2 000 000 views. Yes, you counted the zeros right. 
I was excited when I discovered through JDB that my blog was getting that amount of hits, as he was the one that drew my attention to my stats. 
Many thanks to y'all for always coming around.

Also, for everyone that has been complaining that my URL is too long and can be a tad confusing with where to fix the 'a' and the 'e', I decided to make things easy. You can now link in with www.jbshares.com. How cool is that? Well, the long URL is still there because it is my signature (side eye) but the shorter one will redirect you right here to this awesome place :) 
I will tell you if I want to completely discard the long one when it expires. Please, bookmark the shorter one as I intend to keep it for a very long time.

Nigeria Decides: It's time to go out and vote

Hey Lovelies
The day is finally here. If you are reading this, you should be going out to vote your next president and senators ...
Please, if you are in Nigeria, ensure to go out and cast your vote for the candidate you believe is deserving to lead Nigeria.

I want to implore us all to choose patriotism, because then we can understand the need to focus on answering the question "What does Nigeria really need at this point?" above any other thing that we may have chosen to focus on.

Style: Prints and Denim

Hey Lovelies
I was looking around the other day and I realized the posts with the most number of searches are my style posts. I am flattered to know y'all love my boring style :) 
I also realized I haven't put up any style posts lately.

In today's style diary, I played around with denim and African prints. I absolutely enjoyed creating this look.
