How Do You Have Passion For What You Do?

Posted in: , ,

By Gracie

At first I had wanted to become an international lawyer, then a banker and then later I had hoped to be a chartered accountant and had looked forward to it for a long time. To God be the glory, I am now a chartered accountant. Right now, I am restless; I just feel there is more to life than a 9-5 job. Yeah, a typical 9-5 job is a comfort zone in area of finances. You are guaranteed of getting paid every 30days. Still, no matter what, you are a visitor in your organization, not permanent guests.

Menu Idea - Moi-Moi Cooked With Sardines

Moi-Moi can be a very versatile meal with various recipes and ways to prepare it that keeps it fresh and novel for the palate.

Posted in: , , , ,

One of the things I always knew I would try if I ever made it to New York was to get to the top of the Empire State Building. It's one of the tallest buildings in the world, it's wonderfully designed, and a favorite of Hollywood. I didn't know I would be visiting it with someone, and when that someone was Atala, our visit has one of the best highlights of our years and travels together.

Short Story : Love's Pain - Part 3

Posted in: ,

I quickly run out of the kitchen towards the front door with Lolu right behind me and with Fola leading us to where his sister was. I tried to think of what I should have grabbed from the house depending on what happened to her but my mind was too occupied worrying about the safety of my child. Quick glances up the street and I see her bike sprawled on the floor, next to where she was sitting cry.

Parents Have To Be Careful What They Say To Their Kids

By Stupendous Grace in response to Funmi's One Woman's Experience Growing Up Dark-Skinned in Nigeria

Thanks Funmi for this; very true.

However, the truth is that the issues extend beyond just skin colour and weight. I was dark skinned, skinny and quite tall growing up ( I still am). The comments I heard from neighbours and teachers almost eroded my self esteem. They made me want to slouch every chance I got because I was ashamed to stand tall and be noticed.
