Photos From The 3rd FLOGA AGM/National Reunion, Abuja

The Federal Langtang Old Girls Association, FLOGA, had it’s 3rd National Reunion and AGM at the Grand Cubana Hotel, Abuja, over the weekend.

The event began with a walk for the girl child. I mean, we are girls so it makes sense right? Hehehe

The walk was to show support and garner awareness for victims of Domestic Violence and Child rape. To think that such acts of evil are still perpetrated is just tragic.

The topic for discourse was Self-Reflective Leadership and Continue reading

Online Dating… In Search Of A Mate 

​”Follow your dreams. I am not saying it’s going to be easy, but I am saying it’s going to be worth it.” – Moffat Machingura

I just recorded my first rejection in my online dating quest. I must admit, it hurts a lot than I would have thought.

I recently joined this site (which I absolutely love so far) and the first thing I did after completing my profile was to start flirting. Don’t worry, it’s not as scandalous as it sounds. A flirt is just like ‘liking’ on instagram (the icon is a heart) it’s just a way of showing interest in someone. I like it, but I have one problem with it which I’ll come back to later. 

So after joining the site a few days ago, I received my first ‘Sorry, I’m not interested’ and even if I don’t know the person, it stung, but I guess I appreciate the fact that he didn’t just ignore the flirt. Good right?

Back to my problem with the flirt… I read a lot of bios and some stood out more than others for different reasons – I could relate to certain aspects of a person without liking the total package either because they are young or not into Africans, but how do I ‘Like’ your hobby or compliment your music sense without sending a flirt? You see where I’m going right?

Nonetheless, I still love the site, interracialdating.com, and I intend to subscribe so I can send messages as well as see who has viewed me. Yay!

Why I’m Doing It

I renewed my quest for a white mate when I chatted with the lovely Gazelle Abraham who encouraged me so much, and then I did a Google search and came across the aforementioned site and so far, I have no regrets.

Online dating isn’t necessarily easier than dating I’m real life , but it’s just an alternative that pays off for some and if the advice from successful users of the site is anything to go by, all you need is to be truthful and patient. The rest will happen when and if it’s meant to be.

“Leaving what feels secure behind and following the beckoning of our hearts doesn’t always end as we expect or hope. We may even fail. But here’s the payoff: it can also be amazing and wonderful and immensely satisfying.” – Steve Goodier

I’m very hopeful and my confidence is increasing by the day so no ‘sorry, I’m not interested’ will deter me from my journey to find the perfect mate. :*

The True Meaning Of Success

Jeff Goins, a writer I admire very much wrote a post about how he had to redefine his measure of success because he’d gotten all he set out to and still felt like he wasn’t yet successful. Sound familiar?

What does success mean to you?

I am still far from achieving success in any sense of the word, but I’ve had to reevaluate what it means to me. sunset-summer-golden-hour-paul-filitchkinSimply put, I’d say success is

Abuja International Film Festival: I was Starstruck Again!

For the second time in a short period, I found myself starstruck.

The first time was at Transcorp Hilton while this time around it happened at the very famous Silverbird Galleria in Abuja, FCT.

It was the last day of the 4-day long observation of the 13th Abuja International Film Festival.

Filmmakers from Mexico, China, Iran and of course, Nigeria, were present and if the event Director’s words are anything to go by, this is the best yet.

After the award ceremony, Segun Arinze suggested I attend the mixer. First off, it was to begin at 7 and by 5:00pm, I was still in town, but like magic my mum gave me her car (I had to pay for fuel though. Smh) and so I cruised into the night at 8:00pm. I didn’t want to, but who can say no to a super star right? Well, it’s not like we are chums now, but I do see that happening in my future… Anyway, I went realised I was way out of my elements. I mean, this is my scene and all, but I realised it wasn’t my scene almost immediately. Here’s why…

I’m timid. I don’t care what people say, I am and it was made worse because I didn’t know anyone. You don’t go for social events, especially in Abuja, on your own. You just shouldn’t.

I didn’t know the Nigerian actors/filmmakers. This is the first and probably only time I regret not watching Nigerian movies.

I saw a face and in my mind I’m like “hey! It’s that guy…” I don’t know his name or remember any movie I’ve seen him in.

I saw Bianca, or was it Regina Askia… One lady with hazel eyes… Help me with her name please. *covers eyes*. I saw Fred Amata, very fair, I saw Stanley from ‘After The Storm‘… (I forget his surname now) Yes! Paul Obazele, but most important on the list of ‘People I Met’ was STEVE GUKAS.

For those who don’t know me, I’m a very proud Tarok Girl, but I’m also very proud of my state, Plateau, and so anyone from there is good people and Mr Gukas is one of such.

Gukas directed the much talked about 93 Days, the true story of selflessness displayed by a Nigerians (Doctors and nurses) in preventing the spread of the fatal Ebola Disease some two years ago.

It was like meeting a real like famous person and I was so stoked by how easy it is to meet ‘celebs’ in Abuja. I should definitely go out more. Enjoy the photos.
