Nothing will make or break you as your habits would

Photo by Nubelson Fernandes on Unsplash

Everyone has habits that they could change — Substituting the bad habits hold us back for the good habits that could improve our lives. There are many things I’m grateful for, but if I’m honest, it all boils down to one thing: I made changes in my life. I decided to stop picking up bad habits and instead focus on doing good things for myself. No matter what you want out of life, there is no limit on how much success you can achieve by just making simple changes in your routine.

It is hard to imagine someone who has…


Her face is fine but you can craft it beautiful for you

We have all lost our keys sometime before. Well, maybe not, but at least you have lost something you needed. If it was your keys like me, you got anxious because you needed to leave for work or school. Then you started to search for the keys. First, you searched your pockets or purses, scanned through the dining table, and then your chairs and room.

After checking your pockets or purses, you might have gotten a little relief even though you did not find the keys. For sure, you know that you have taken a step closer to finding what…


We would have to watch and see what the new wave of feminism brings

I perceive we would have a new wave of feminism soon; It would involve women wanting all the benefits of feminism for themselves and shifting the horrors of patriarchy to the male gender. The fifty-fifty bullshit is for losers, they’d claim. Queens, as they call themselves, are supposed to enjoy luxury and be taken care of by a male provider.

According to Pew Research, 70% of Americans still think a man should be the financial provider and support the family. Still, this research also shows that even women who earn equal or more than men contribute less to the family…


Spice up your sex life with these sex positions

There are more than 600 documented sex positions. If you’re like most people, however, we’d assume you’ve only tried a handful. Your favorite positions, very likely, give you the most pleasure. But could there be another reason you resort to it?

It’s long known that people carry their personalities all around. It’s in their stride on the road, in their choice of clothes and accessories. It’s in their choice of romantic interest and, of course, it’s in the bedroom. So here are four additional heterosexual sex positions you should try out if things in the bedroom are becoming a little…


Rationality is determined by outcome not mere logic

Photo by kevin turcios on Unsplash

When a person like Sam Harris speaks, you want to listen. Not just because he has a lot of wisdom to dish out, but also because he is an outstanding communicator. Sam is a neuroscientist, author, and philosopher who has been a fervent proponent of rationality and consequently an avid opponent of all forms of theism.

Among other things, Sam has been a vehement critic of Former U.S President Donald Trump. And undoubtedly, his “rationality” (as the ordinary person would refer to rationality) goes to sleep when he criticizes religion, free will, and the abhorrent Trump. …

Competitions are trash

I am not a fan of competitions. I see all forms of competition as gambling. Taking part in any competition is as good as buying a lottery ticket and expecting to win. The good news is that you might actually win, but you are more likely not to win. So, you should take that ticket money and get yourself some junk and eat or better still save it for no reason.

No matter your skillset, the chances of winning a competition with many participants is as slim as a broomstick. Furthermore, metrics used to judge the outcome of competition are…


— Fiction —

I can’t quite recall how I got here, but I know I don’t want to be here. I don’t like it here. It feels dreary here. The cloud’s eye above me looks doleful and pale. Their white fluffy intricate pattern looks dull and grey. The clouds are crying. And I am glad for the tears because they wash the bleak trail of sullenness away.

They hide a broken girl, a depressed soul, and a sad spirit. I exhaled. I wanted this to be over as quickly as it started. I was tired of the…


What nest for the millions of people who make their living selling their content on Olyfans

image from variety.com

The content subscription platform, OnlyFans, has issued a statement saying it would ban all “sexually explicit” content on its platform starting October. Although the platform is home to chefs, fitness trainers, and other content creators, OnlyFans is primarily known for sexual content.

Since its inception, thousands of sex workers and amateur sexual content creators have found safe heaven to put out their content and make a living doing so. Therefore, this move by OnlyFans is bad news for millions who make a living selling sexual content on the site. Onlyfans has been moving away from sexual content over the years…


I didn’t know losing my partner would feel like freedom

I have heard horror tales about how death visits one in the darkest hour of the night with a scythe and a black hoodie, ready to take a life with a quick and effortless swing. I have heard how sometimes those swift swings can be painless and quick or excruciating and disastrous.

After I lost a classmate at age eight, my grandma told me that the pain on the bereaved relatives is unbearable. Then I grew up to read about Maslow’s stages of grief; Denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

But when I lost Kemi, my girlfriend of…
