ON THE BLOG TODAY, we brought plenty of gist for you about savings. We’d be talking about”An Extra Mite to The Future”Our first question for today, What exactly comes to mind when planning your budget? How do you plan your budget according to your priorities? Planning your budget. Planning a budget could be very difficult especially as a student. Sometimes, you might want to gratify your wants and push your urgent needs away. Self-pleasure, peer pressure and even the desire to meet up with your baby girl lifestyle that you’ve envisioned for your self might have eaten deep into your pocket before you could realize soon enough. Which one is importantWhat is just a wantWhich one is needed Let me clearly state that if you still have issues with what people would say about your dresses, being too simple, or you’re easily moved by the latest trends and styles around,…

Becoming Her Growing up as a child,a female by gender,Radiating with the joy of my big dreams and goals,Excited with new discoveries about life,Alas! Growth happens, an inevitable change began,and like a beautiful bush of rose,growing amidst thorns,Challenges and trials came,trying to choke and shape me,But onward I press,For I have a goal,I strive to achieve my dream,I thrive to become her,searching for an answer to the question in my heart,will you help me?will you answer my question?How do I become her?,The woman of my dream!Poem written by Adeyanju Oluwatoyin How do I become in reality, the woman I always dream of becoming? If we carefully read through this poem, we will realize that the lady here is all of us during a stage or a phase or the other, growing up through different stages.Your ideal woman isn’t a perfectionist but a woman who has discovered herself and who is…

My name is Aramide, a graduate of the University of Ilorin. I would love to share my NYSC camp experience with you all. I served my fatherland in a town called Okrika of Rivers State and I absolutely enjoyed my stay there. But, before I go into the full gist, let’s have a rewind back to how it all happened. I got my posting letter to spend three weeks at “Nonwa gbam tai” camp, I tell you I was so pissed… Pissed ???? I was so annoyed, why do I have to be posted that far, I was so scared of the Eastern part of Nigeria because of how the city was busy with lots of strange people and how they are so dubious and can do anything for money. But then, mama told me “all will be well, you don’t have to worry too much, you will be fine”. I replied and…

Have you ever asked yourself the reason behind every action and its end result? Have you ever reasoned the thinking behind every decision you make? Christianity, Islam and even traditional religion believe in actions that bring rewards and punishments as does the universe which birthed the concept of Karma. Do you think you make good decisions as a result of your home training? In-born morals? Or your ability to take the decision on your own? Every choice always brings about consequences, be it positive or negative. Whether we like it or not, the reality is our choices will always come back to either reward or punish us one way or another. You might say you have home training or morals, though they influence you, do they make the decisions? NO!!! You decide all on your own whether with external influences or without. Your choices are yours to make whether you…

A friend once said to me… “It is knowledge if you know that cherry is a fruit, but knowing that you cannot add a cherry to a fruit salad is wisdom”. I puzzled within me “does knowledge really guarantee wisdom?” I hereby am to the conclusion that the right application of knowledge is wisdom. Lately, this has helped me to understand human actions better and complain less when I see that things I would rather consider stupid are done around me. People are only an embodiment of the knowledge they carry. You can only act in accordance with what you know. If you don’t know how to drive and you are bought a Ferrari or even Porsche, you still wouldn’t drive it. On the other hand, because you know something does it mean you’ll use it wisely. Many have money but don’t know how to live with it. So, the…

Holding on and letting go is like wearing my scars like souvenirs that I shouldn’t be holding onto as I have. I’ve loved people with everything I’ve had in me, only to give it my all and leave myself with nothing. I hold onto the past like it’s a catchy tune on repeat but I keep pushing replay. And I think about old loves who have moved on. I look at myself still hung up over it. Like it’s my fault for the love they couldn’t give me. Like it’s my best that was never good enough. I never pin heartbreak on those who deserve its blame. I never say it was them who was flawed or unworthy of all I had to give. Instead, I look at my reflection analyzing a list of shortcomings. The blame gets placed on things I can’t change about myself. I keep trying to…

Sometimes it just happens: as random and as unexpected as Life sometimes has a way of interrupting your planned journey. You are already in a relationship and like all relationships, there are ups and downs, but you guys are already in it for years. Arguments occur but they get patched up and made up, sooner or later. Then one day, you met this other person. He was just there in your line of sight. You were not actively looking out for anybody. He was just there. Your eyes locked and he smiled. You thought you smiled back. His smile lingered in your memory. “Maybe he was just being polite,” you kept telling yourself. But, there was definitely something at that moment. That Moment. Did you believe in Love at First Sight? Do you believe in that? Maybe not, but that was definitely a Moment. You and he caught each other’s…
