I am having one of my ‘dem’ days. I have been staring at the computer for hours. I am totally uninspired and feeling down today. Why? I know the reason but I really shouldn’t feel like this cos it is all under control. I am listening to Mary Mary and I feel joy entering into my spirit (Thank you Lord!).

What are my peculiarities?…….Hmmm, One of them is that I can’t think of lies fast enough! Today I was asked a question by my in-charge and I practically blurted out the truth and got myself into trouble. I am stunned when I hear people spit out lies quickly. I am not saying I don’t lie, I am saying I have to think about the lie to be able to say it. Maybe my in-charge has noticed this about me, that is why he asks me whenever I have an accomplice in any mischief that I do.

Right now, I told my mum and brother that someone bought my blackberry for me and I have been feeling bad since. Before you all shout and say all sort, I was not ready for them to start screaming in my ear that I was spending too much money and not saving (even though they are right). It was just easier to say that. Actually someone promised me the money but he started getting all dirty and more. I was just not comfortable with it. I couldn’t play along just because of a lousy 30k. I would rather buy it with my money and please God than do what he wants. I ain’t CHEAP! I am an independent chic (heck! My ringtone is miss independent by Ne-yo……..lol).

I don’t know how to pretend. It amazes me when people see someone and say something nasty about that person then smile, laugh and say good things to the person’s face. I am like WHAT?!!. I know that attitude has a name. I think it is HYPOCRISY. I am a person that believes if you have nothing good to say about a person, say nothing at all. One of my ex was like that and it used to amaze me how people can act like that. I once said that I really don’t like gossip because I have found out that anybody that gossips to you would gossip about you. I try not to be involved and if I have no choice I try to give excuses for the person. The same ex called it 'trying to sugarcoat the truth' and that I was not being realistic.

Another quirk about me is running away from a guy that I don’t want to get close to me. I know, I know that is probably immature and wrong but I am such a bad actress. You would know that there is something wrong because I would start acting somehow. And then after the guy gets the message, I begin to feel bad. I really need to get a stiff backbone and go for some acting classes.

A major big quirk is that I am so insensitive to what is happening around me. I recently found out that someone had a crush on me in secondary school, some people had crushes on me when I was in university and while I was serving some great guys were ‘tripping’ for me. What was I doing while all this was going on? I have no bloody idea! I am really something else. And they are great guys (I think) but after all my recent taste in men, I am beginning to think I am a poor judge of people. Well, I really need to start being sensitive and notice things more! Else a lot of things are going to pass me by.

Well, that is all I can write today folks. I really hope you are reading with a computer and not a phone! I also hope that you are doing the assignment I gave to ya all (remember...click away). I hope I would be in a better mood tomorrow and be super inspired to write something a bit more fun.

Luv ya,
Petite Diva…………..

The term ‘abortion’ in relation to pregnancy by ‘Microsoft Encarta’ means an operation or other intervention to end a pregnancy by removing an embryo or fetus from the womb.

I have no clue why I just wrote the meaning of abortion like you all don’t know what abortion means but I was trying to be a proper writer. And it sucks! Switching over to petite diva mode….. So why am I writing about abortion and my belief, well I recently remembered that one of my ex who has para medical knowledge (he is a medical personnel) used to freely give abortion tips to his friends who had gotten their girlfriends or playmates pregnant.

While we were together, I actually told him it was not right and once he said he won’t give them advice again (which I seriously doubt he did). When you have been doing it from your undergraduate days, how would he suddenly stop because one chic that you don’t value said so. Besides he would lose some of his so called 'friends'.

I hate abortion, with a passion. Anybody that has done it or helps people do it loses most of the respect I have for that person. It amazes me how people who cannot create a human being would kill an innocent soul. A person who aborts or help people abort is A MURDERER, A KILLER!!! There is no difference between that person and armed robbers/hired assassins who kill. They are even worse! They kill innocent children who have done nothing wrong.

The statement the ‘killer’ ex used to say was that at the stage his friends were trying to kill their children the child is still a zygote. For the love of God, everybody on earth was a zygote before all the organs were fully formed. So I am stating that a zygote is a child! You all can argue all you like, I ain’t listening.

When I was entering university, a video was played for us ‘freshmen’ on abortion. That was the first time I saw some gory scenes about the various ways abortion was conducted. I couldn’t stand it. I wanted to throw up. I just don’t understand why people would do that to their bodies and their kids.

My recent scare with hyperprolactinaemia has reaffirmed my belief that children are precious and wonderful. My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t be able to bear kids. I already have a lot of statements being said about me and having kids. I have been told by some doctors that when I am pregnant that I should book for caesarean section as my pelvis might not be wide enough to push a baby out and some other crap that I don’t believe. Meanwhile some lucky females and males (yes, males because I have seen men who are the cause of the inability of their wives to conceive due to their low sperm count) would kill their kids.

I am a pharmacist and I know what medications that can be used to conduct an abortion but you can’t get me to tell you or dispense/sell it to without a doctor properly prescribing it. I have committed enough sins as it is, I am not about to go into ‘THOU SHALL NOT MURDER’ own. Thank you! But I would pass.

I really believe in karma and listen up people to what I am going to say. For everyone involved in it, STOP IT!! God is merciful but one day he would deal with you because of the innocent souls you have killed. I believe that the sooner you repent the better. Even King David that God loved still was still punished when he stole Bathsheba from Uriah the hittite. I believe that he would forgive you but still deal with you small.

It is even worse for the medical personnel who have sworn an oath to help people with their knowledge and commit this terrible crime. I am so angry right now! Anybody that does not stop it soon would soon experience God’s wrath! You would receive a bigger punishment than those you commit the crime for because you should know better! For crying out loud that is why condoms and contraceptives were made! If you are old enough to do the deed, then you are old enough to bear the consequences!

Do I think there are exceptional cases when it can be conducted? Right now I am torn between the answer of yes and no. In a situation when giving birth to a child would be harmful to the mother’s health, a child with serious deformities, a child who is SS, a child who was as a result of rape are all exceptional cases that I can’t comment on.

I guess I am entitled to my own opinion and I might have rubbed on people the wrong way but I don’t care. Thank God that he is a merciful father. I am quite sure that he would forgive a lot of people so maybe it is that grace that people are taking for granted. May God help us all as I can’t claim to be a saint.

I have to go folks. Hope you loved the entry even though it was a little bit unpleasant.

Luv ya,
Petite Diva.

I am positive a lot of you guys are like uhn? What in the world is google adsense? I am sure you are like, I know what google is. But I am cluelsess about google adsense.

Well I am no expert but I would try to explain it the best way I can. You all understand the power of advertising and the mechanism involved in all the types of advertising. Be it television, online, billboards/print or whatever. A company has a product/service that they would like the consumers to be aware of, so that they can have an increase in sales or patronage and thereby translating it to profit (that is with properly financial planning).

Well, the world wide web is really wide and a company advertising on the internet can really increase sales and profit within a short time. Google has a platform which allows companies or individuals to advertise their products or services. They pay a small amount to google and register and they are in.

However adverts appearing on their site would not give the companies the best exposure that they need. So what is the solution? Get other sites be it other company’s sites or blogs to advertise for them. The sites that have the adverts don’t just have them occupying space but actually get paid in foreign currencies (used to be dollars but was changed to euros).

Yes! I said get paid! However they get paid when something happens. They get paid when their readers click on the advert and go to the sites of the company. You don’t have to buy anything or go further, all you have to do is click on the adverts and view the sites.

How do you recognize the adverts? They are usually tiny words either on top, by the side, in between posts or at the end of a page. For example, this blog has the adverts on top (after the name of the blog) and at the sides.

It is really great when readers click on the adverts and see what the companies have to offer. I have noticed that when viewing most of the sites/blogs with this google adverts with a phone, you wouldn’t be able to see them. So what I am trying to say is ‘USE A COMPUTER TO VIEW MY SITE OR OTHER SITES NEXT TIME’…………lol. At least earning a little change while blogging would help me pay for the internet connection and the fuel used.

I hope you guys understand a bit about google adsense which is just a way of rewarding bolg/sites owner for the online advertising space. So click away when you view a site with the adverts, it would make the person smile.

Oh well! Even if I don’t make a dime, I would still blog ‘cos I love it…………#smilingwithmyteeth. Hey! I just thought of my next post….. ‘My feelings about abortion’. Yep! People, I am about to get controversial. A lot of pro abortionist won’t like it but I don’t care. It is my blog!

I gotta go guys. I have a busy day tomorrow. I am entering into my Martha mode.

Luv ya guys,
Petite Diva.

P.S: When clicking away, please click with sense. If you click too many times from a particular computer on the same day the owner of the site would get banned. So pleeeaaasssseee click with sense. You can click all the adverts but just once on each.

It has been a while since I updated my blog and I have been receiving lots of questions from you guys. The reason for my absence is that I have been uninspired lately because I was fighting a battle for my soul and future.

If you have been reading my blog, you would remember that I wrote that I had to go for a blood test because of my breast pain. Well the result came out and I had an outrageously high amount of a certain hormone.

So I thought I would just take drugs and as I had been assured by some doctors, I would be fine afterwards. However the physician that I was seeing decided that I should do an x-ray of my skull. What were they looking for? Tumours. Apparently if there is a tumour in the pituitary gland, it could lead to usually high amount of the hormone.

That broke me down. I was just not ready to expose myself to any radiation because of the fear of cancer and I was also scared that a tumour would be seen. It took some persuasion, assurance and comforting from my girlfriend, a doctor friend and my mum to spur me into doing the x-ray and the thyroid stimulating hormone test.

When a friend asked me if I would write about this, I said yes immediately but I was skeptical about writing about it. What made me change my mind? I got the result of the x-ray and other test today and according to the results, I am normal.

The other test claimed that I had high serum prolactin. For the non-medical inclined readers, please browse about prolactin and hyperprolactinaemia. Well, at the initial stage when the diagnosis was made and I remembered the condition it could cause, I was distraught. I had a depressive mood for days.

I just couldn’t think of me being that way. I let go of everything. I wept and kept wondering why I had to be going through such a condition. I was not interested in taking drugs for an indefinite time until it has normalized. I kept proclaiming that it can’t happen to me because God has not said so about me.

I was praying a certain day and proclaiming reversal of my hormones to normal and a word came to me. What I received was that I was chosen to have this situation happen to me to prove to people that God still exists. That he is the same yesterday, today and forever. The same Jesus that the woman with the issue of blood touched his garment and was healed is alive. I am chosen to be a marvel to people. That in spite of what is on paper I would be a different case.

For those who have browsed on it and the medically inclined readers who know about hyperprolactinaemia would know that it is a cause of infertility. There! I have said it. Some people would probably tell me that I shouldn’t have written that but I don’t have hyperprolactinaemia.

The result from the lab was wrong. I have no tumour in my brain/pituitary gland, I have super regular menses and my thyroid gland is functioning well. So why won’t I write it. I have just said that I would be an exceptional case and I am. They were expecting a tumour, they saw none. They were excepting a faulty thyroid gland; they saw a fully functioning one. They were expecting amenorrhea (irregular menses), they saw a perfectly timing menstruation cycle that would shame a lot of people. So I repeat again. Why won’t I write about it? IN CASE YOU MISSED THE MEMO, THIS GIRL IS A FABULOUS CREATION!!

The major reason I am writing this is not for people to pity me for what I have had to endure in the past weeks but to help someone out there. My latest motto has been that God has a reason for everything. And I write my life experiences with the hope that it would not only entertain you all but would help someone. That is my prayer every day. I am not looking to help millions or thousands or hundreds or tens (but if it happens there is no problem), I am looking to give hope to just a person.

My message to someone out there is that no matter what you think you are going through always have faith in God. He knows the beginning and the end of your problem. Sometimes problems are there to make you stronger. I have had to go through one challenge or the other since this year started but the word I hold on to is “FEAR NOT”. I won’t deceive you and say it comes immediately to me because it doesn’t. I would have finished crying then start praying before it comes. FEAR NOT!!! I don’t know if God is through with me yet but I know that whatever happens I would not believe the devil’s report but the Lord’s own.

My question to you is ‘whose report would you believe?’

That is all folks. The amazingly, peculiar and fabulous petite diva has to get her beauty sleep.

Hope to write soon.
Petite Diva.

P.S: I was extremely shocked when I heard that Whitney Houston was dead. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Now she is free from the demons of drugs and alcohol. A note to someone out there struggling with problems, no matter how bad your problems are never turn to drugs and alcohol. It would kill you faster than your problems. Turn to God and he is sure to help you. Stay drug free people……..

Hey guys, my last post caused quite a stir with you all but I gotta warn you that there is more to come. So brace yourself….

16. I love my maternal grandmother. She is the best grandma in the whole world. Everybody that is close to me knows that she is called ‘Iya’ by her family. It is supposed to be pronounced ‘Iya meaning mother in yoruba’ but it is not. It was started by me when I was learning how to talk. The legend/story is that I was trying to say ‘Iya Keji’ and couldn’t quite say it properly so it kinda of stuck. Hey! I had to announce my arrival as the 1st grandchild somehow now……the petitediva has been a diva from birth.....lol.

17. I got my first kiss on the cheek at age 3. The boy was a family friend and we were playing under the table in my house. It happened so suddenly. He just grabbed me and gave me the peck with my brother watching. My brother teased me about that all through secondary school. So technically, I had my first boyfriend at age 3 and he also happened to be my first crush. Found out later that he also had a crush on me when we were younger…….strange uhn?

18. I hate oats, don’t like yam or beans (I can eat them but just a very minute quantity is enough for me, thank you).

19. I can’t swim even though I would love to learn but I have been unable to find a female swimming instructor.

20. I would love to learn martial art (anyone that uses skills not strength cos as you all know that I am tiny), play a musical instrument preferably guitar or piano and how to sew.

21. I love dancing but rarely dance in public because I think I look like a skeleton dancing about. I would love to learn salsa, ballroom dancing, tango and burlesque style of dancing.I also want to learn pole dancing and how to strip (stripper style) so that I can put some spice in my marriage (I am talking about the bedroom gymnastics). I am such a bad girl but sometimes being a bad girl for the hubby is necessary (what do you think guys?).

22. I have dated boys (and I say boys because they were boys) that are younger than me. And it was a disaster. Never trying that again!

23. I have not spoken to my brother for almost a year in the past. We had a crazy fight and I wouldn’t forgive him. Bad, uhn? But he provoked me. We are better now anyways.

24. I make friends easily more with guys than girls. I guess it is because I grew up with just one sibling who happens to be a guy. So I really don’t know how to maintain a girly relationship. I am lost sometimes with girlfriends. I have no clue what to say or how to act.

25. I am sometimes too much of a tomboy. I rough-play a lot forgetting that I am a girl but it is easier for me to be a tomboy. Sometimes being a girl is not fun.

26. I love fashion and make up. I am quite the fashionista. I always analyze people’s outfits and imagine how I can change it. Problem is that I hate how I dress. I hate the clothes that I have but as I am a tiny size 4, it is really impossible to get clothes or shoes that I want in my size.

27. I studied pharmacy because my parents decreed that it was going to be so. I totally hated the course in year 5 and wanted to quit but then I am not a quitter. Now I am really grateful that my parents chose it (please don’t tell them that or they are going to be making decisions for me).

28. I sometimes feel I am stupid and have no clue what I am doing at times. How I passed pharmacy school is a testimony as to the fact that it is not by might or power but by the grace of GOD.

29. I tend to give a lot because I don’t want to ever come across to people as stingy. I had a family member that was stingy and I vowed never to be like that.

30. I am fighting a battle against depression. I come across to people as being happy but sometimes it is just an act. I tend to have serious mood swings and when it goes to the depressive state, I am a serious mess. My last boyfriend had the unfortunate experience of witnessing me in one of my state when I called him and was crying on the phone. Maybe that was one of the reasons why he slept with someone else. I have even flirted with the idea of taking antidepressants but I refuse to allow the devil to win.

Well that is 30things you didn’t know about me. I actually think I should have made it 100 things you didn’t know about me because I just found out that I have more to write about. Na! I don’t think so. I would keep some to myself, thank you!

Have a beautiful week ahead, folks. I am off to bed.
Luv ya,
Petite Diva.

I saw this on a friend’s twitter page and decided to try it. Sorry Fatima, I am stealing your idea (please don’t sue me o cos I no get money to pay you o…….lol). I think this would be fun but I am not sure whether I would write the 100% truth but I would try. All I ask is that I am not judged and you all love me for who I am.

Here goes……(#rubbingmypalmstogether):
1. I was born on the 4th of March, my zodiac sign is pisces. I have no clue what my birthstone is. Can someone help me?

2. I am 5 feet 1 inch tall. A lot of people think I am shorter so I had to state my height. I wish I was taller but this is the height I selected in heaven so I gotta live with it.

3. I can be a very good revenge scheme plotter. I hate getting angry because I think of great ways to get even and they always seem spectacular but thank God I am too much of a chicken to ever carry them out …….#smilingwithmyteethshowing…….

4. I am an introvert. I am happy staying at home, washing, cleaning and watching movies.

5. I didn’t know where akwa ibom was until I was posted here for NYSC.

6. I can’t effectively speak Yoruba (I know, I know, I should be ashamed of myself). I really want to learn it now. My last boyfriend could speak 3 languages and I badly want to learn to speak 3 languages too.

7. I have a terrible fear of speaking in public. My heart begins to pound faster and my voice becomes shaky. I have a presentation coming up and I am seriously dreading it.

8. I don’t make friends easily because I think I am such a bad person and nobody would want to be friends with me. I therefore come across to people as a snob.

9. I don’t like speaking a lot because I have an accent and I sometimes struggle with the pronunciation of words. I am not witty so lack what to say at times.

10. I am a very shy person. I lack self confidence. I rarely talk but I found out that I am better with written words. I also rarely look at people in the face.

11. I had a crush on a certain prince when I was growing up. I had no choice; he is super cute, kind, fun and rich. I also had crushes on 2 guys when I was in secondary school though they never noticed me. Hmmm, I think I still have a crush on one of them and he is now cuter than ever and has a certain addition that makes him more desirable. I can’t fully describe it but that addition makes me melt like butter. He is just too hot!!! (I can’t wait to see people’s response to this…….hahaha).

12. My maternal grandfather was a muslim and had 7 wives with 26 children. And may i also mention that I never met him. I wish I had but he had too many issues with his children that they all went on different paths. I don’t even know where he is buried.

13. I wish I had a nongovernmental organization which helps to make the wishes of less privileged kids come true. Actually my objectives are much more than that.

14. I absolutely love, love, love the colour pink. I am actually going to wear pink on my wedding day (I hope I can….).

15. I am an American size 0, a british size 4 upwards and british size 6 downwards. For the guys it means I got a big butt, which I thank God for because if my butt was not a bit curvaceous I would be really straight.

Well, that is 15 for now. I would be sure to write the remaining tomorrow (I hope I can). Hope you enjoyed it.

Luv ya,
Petite Diva

P.S:Check out my girl's blog, it is so much better than mine and she has a fabulous way of writing. Her blog address is http://onceuponafatum.blogspot.com. Thanks...

I am sure the topic would have scared a lot of you guys. I can just imagine the expression on your faces. Yes I have had a breast cancer scare and I decided to share it with you all. As you all know, I have decided to take everything that happens to me as an adventure, learn from the lessons and try to make my life and the people around me better. That is the main reason I decided to share my scary experience with you all. I really hope it helps save a life.

For the past 5 years, I have been having pain in my chest and breast region. The pain comes for a short while and then disappears. I was scared when it first occurred because a friend of mine had just recently had a breast cancer scare. However when I saw a doctor, I was assured it was nothing and prescribed some pain killers and anti-malarial drugs. That was the end of that episode. Over the years the pain would come and go. I started paying attention to it about 3 years ago and discovered that it came when I was about to fall ill, so when I felt the pains I would self medicate with pain relievers and anti-malarial drugs (that is such a bad practice!).

Last year I had a major scare when I thought I felt a lump. I did feel a lump but the lump was a result of my menses that was about to start so when the menstrual period was over, the lump disappeared. To say I was not terrified would be an understatement. I cried for a while before I decided that I was not going to allow any cancer in my body. I am grateful to God that it was a false alarm.

However for the past two days I have been feeling some serious, sharp pains in my breast. The pains used to appear sharply then stop but this time the pains would come repeatedly for about 10 minutes then subside. After a while it would start again, at a point I was having chest pains. I felt ill and coupled with the stress and bad eating habit I have had in the last couple of days, I felt terrible.

I decided to see a doctor at the hospital where I work. Problem was that I didn’t want to expose my breasts to any male doctor so I had to look for a female one and she checked for lumps in my breasts. Thankful she couldn’t feel any lump. I knew I had no lumps because I carry out self breast examination. I don’t do it every month which is the ideal thing to do but at least I try. I know that a lot of ladies don’t do it at all but I hope this would remind everyone to conduct a self breast examination at least once a month. It is cheap, not painful and can really save your life. Please remind your friends to do so too.

I don’t have cancer (THANK GOD FOR THAT) but the doctor is suspecting something else. I have been instructed to go for a test which I have done. I am now waiting for the result. I am still going to go for the mammogram but would do it just because I want to. I am going to do it whenever I like, I might do it next month or next year but I would definitely go for it.

Whatever the test result says, I know that I would overcome it (there is nothing that God cannot do). I have a healthy, fabulous, bootylicious, divalicious body so pain or no pain I would be what I was destined to be!

I would try to look for a site where the steps that should be taken to conduct a self breast examination are properly described and place a link to it on my blog. I really hope you would click on the link and follow the steps.

I have to go. However before I do, I have a little bit of gossip for you guys. I GOT A BB….YEP A BLACKBERRY…..LOL…..LWKMD! I am sure a lot of people would have just hissed but it is a big thing for me because I never thought that I would get one because I am not a fan of BB. However I got one and I am still trying to learn how to use it. I just love my NOKIA and would have loved to have gotten an E5 or E6 instead but at least now I can ping my classmates who I have missed so much. So it is not that bad……lol.


Luv ya,
Petite Diva.
