Relationships, they are all that matters right? Uhmm, right!

Wakey wakey! It's Monday again. The weekend just went as quickly as it came!
How did you spend your weekend?
Mine was very uneventful, so nothing much to share except you wanna hear about school which of course would be very boring.
toilet selfies: what I'll probably be doing in between classes and studying today

Anyway, this Monday morning, I'll start off with what I learnt in church two Sundays ago! It was Youth Sunday and our Pastor talked about a very interesting topic and I decided to share with you guys. I naturally have listening ears when it comes to relationship talks so I listened and took notes.

Falling feet?


Happy Thursday Everyone!
How's your week been so far?
Well, today's post is inspired by my mood. I planned to post something funny oh, believe me, but my mood has been tampered with, by the workload before me after I finished my laboratory work this morning.
Today, I'm going to share a scripture that keeps me going; I have so many of them. This is the one that came to my mind today after my lab; the course load is so much and it is really overwhelming.    It is gotten from Jude vs 24, and I looked for the amplified Bible so that it can be explained very well..
source: The Bible Gateway
This scripture reminds us that God is able and really wants to keep us from falling. And when He says falling, He means in every aspect of our lives - academics, spiritual and otherwise.
So it is with this newly invigorated resolution that I get up, dust my feet and carry on with my course work.
Hope you have a blessed day.
Hugs and Kisses. Xoxo.

Breathe on me; Just kidding, don't even dare!

Ehmm, my people! How are you all doing?
Hope you are all good. Today is Wednesday ohh, and before you know it, the week is over. This week is looking like a great week for me, and if it continues, I'll tell you people why it is great on Friday.
Ehmm, for my lovely readers in Naija, biko you people should not vex for me concerning yesterday's post. I've even forgotten that in Naija, it is only rainy season and harmattan season. So some of you might not understand what I meant. To makes matters simple, Summer = semi-harmattan season, Fall/Autumn and maybe Spring = rainy season, and uhmm, winter, well winter = Jos weather raised to power hundred! Shebi you understand now? You see, I'm so caring.
See the leaves changing color like I explained yesterday. I took this pic last fall. Beautiful right?

So about today's post ohh, it was inspired by my experience last summer and because this is Fall and it would be very much applicable, I decided to narrate it.
You see, last summer, I went to school one day, and I sat in my normal position in the 3rd row at front of the class (it's not like I'm one geek or serious student ohh, If I seat any farther, I won't see anything). As I was busy trying to concentrate and listen to what my lovely instructor was saying, my nose was heavily assaulted by some odor that can't be explained here, it can only be experienced for you to grasp the magnitude of the assault. I ignored the odour ohh, and tried to refocus, because the odour just took me about 2 years back and I started thinking about my life. Just as God saved me and I picked up my pen to continue, I was taken aback and my nose was severely assaulted again. I thought to myself, what have I done to deserve this?
As a science student, I tried to observe my surroundings. I noticed that the correlation between this odour time bomb, and the frequency with which the boy seating at my back opened his mouth to talk is 1. For those of you who don't understand maths, this simply means that, the odor only came out once and only when the boy opened his mouth. And my darling boy decide to seat directly at my back and not only that, but he choose that moment to engage in a conversation with his friends.
My dear, the boy kept on opening his mouth at a rate of 10times per second. Do I need to explain to you that lectures for me that day was totally ruined? You can testify with me that if not for God, I won't be here writing this post.
What is my point? We are in fall season. People won't go outside to receive fresh air because it is raining. We are most of the time stuck with each other in closed rooms. Biko, please, a bit of hygiene this season won't hurt. Try to take care of yourself, brush your teeth, have your bath, buy body sprays. Mints and chewing gums aren't that expensive. Do not be the topic of someone Else's blog post. And if you deceide not to do any, well, I won't bug you but don't even dare talk to me! Affliction must not return a second time!
A blog post is enough for the wise (now that line was genius, hehehe)
Had worse experiences? Feel free to comment.
Keep being awesome.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo

let it fall!

Hey everyone!
How are you all?
I'm so excited  that I am finally able to put together this post. I've been soooo busy. This semester is running so fast; even Usain Bolt got nothing on it. I had a midterm today and I had to prepare over the weekend, that's why I couldn't post.
So back to the present.
About today's post, well, most of you guys in this part of the world know what's happening today 23rd September.
In case you have forgotten, let me remind you. Today is the first day of Fall/Autumn. I'm so excited when the weather and seasons change because it reminds us still of God's promise.
Genesis 8:22 and Jeremiah 5:24

Fall happens to be my favorite Canadian weather because I love when it rains; Its not too hot like the Summer and Its not as Icy as the Winter. Its just cool and perfect.
Fall is simply awesome, the leaves begin to turn yellow, then red,(shebi I got the order?) before it fall offs and it's so beautiful. The air is so cool. The atmosphere is so serene, and I feel so relaxed. And most of all, I just wish I wasn't going anywhere but rather staying home to enjoy the weather.
Yay! I'm finally becoming Canadian. Just imagine how I am talking about the weather.
Anyway, this is to officially welcome you to Fall!
I'm going to miss the summer though, and so I've included some of my favorite moments from this past summer. :)



So till the summer comes your way next year, LET IT RAIN!!!
What do you Love hate about the Fall?  Comment below!
Have a lovely week.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

Biko, Just be nice!


Happy Saturday everyone!

How’s your weekend going? Hope fine?
As for me, I think mine is going fine. Like I told ya’ll yesterday, I went for a birthday party (Happy birthday Lawretta), and I really enjoyed myself. It’s been a long time since I let go  (grins). That’s why this post is late ohh; cos I had to catch up on sleep.

Source: @dinahhhhhhhh Twitter


Anyway, today’s post is inspired by this discussion I was having with my housemate yesternite when we returned from the party. I don’t know why some guys won’t simply be nice to a girl just because she isn’t their girlfriend. Guys, biko, being  not nice, is actually not nice. It doesn’t cost a thing to be nice or helpful because, seriously though, it’s the little things you do for people that counts. You might not know just how much your kindness will go because trust me, we all need each other in one way or the other.

Okay: Rant over.
Do make sure you keep being awesome.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

No need to remind me jor, I can dream for Africa and the entire universe.
Before I round up ohh, I was thinking,
You know, I should have a name for you lovely people that read my blog, what do you think? It's common practice; Linda Ikeji- Libers, Bella naija- Bellanaijarans,
Berry Dakara- Dakara darlings etcetera etcetera...
So I was thinking
Betty's blog readers can be called :
1. Borednomore-ers,
2. Betty's battalion
3. Bored kings and queens
4. Betty's brouhaha's
Lols... I suck with names right?

so What if........

Hey Guys,
How are you doing? So sorry I couldn't put up a post yesterday; I was sooooooooo busy (you people sef cannot ask of me, it is bad ohh)..

Anyway, did you people hear that Linda Ikeji bought herself a new Range Rover 2014. Check it out here. For those of you who don't know who she is, well she is a top Nigerian blogger ohh and I respect her hustle very much. She even has like 2 other cars and a very big house.

You people may be wondering, what exactly is your point?
Well, (clears throat)
You know when I started this blog I wanted to relieve my boredom! That is clearly working ohhh..
But how about you read something like this
Don't you believe?


"Popular lifestyle blogger, Betty Chinda acquires new airplane and private jet "
(sighs)! I can dream for Africa ohhh..
Well, I know with God all things are possible.. You people should just keep reading and commenting and giving my blog popularity; who knows, I may finally buy a private jet ohhhh (grins!)

That reminds me ohhh, I lost my phone(My darling HTC one) on Tuesday ohh in my school's library.
But one kind guy(God bless His soul) picked it up and sent it to the front desk. Thank God the panic attack I was already having did not escalate into a heart attack.
Careless much right?
Well, its almost Friday and my blog is 1Week old today.
That will be all for now!

Keep being awesome.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

That's the way it is


Hello lovelies, how are you doing?
How’s your Tuesday going?
As for me, I’m just busy trying to shuffle between school work, because that’s what I’m supposed to do. I'm a
student of course. School just resumed couple of weeks ago and it’s just as if the semester has been running all year long.

    Here's a picture of sunset I took last fall. Beautiful right?                                                                                                              
Well, today’s post is inspired by my journey to and from school as a commuter. For one year, I lived in school, but now, I stay off campus and then I have to take the bus to school.       
Overtime commuting, I found out that when I wake up early and prepare,  everything just goes on smooth; the bus ride is smooth, the driver is friendly, and I get to school on time and everyone is happy.
However, on a typical day when I wake up late,  My day typically goes this way
1.      The clothes I planned to wear doesn’t look fine as it did the night before, but well, who cares? I put it on like that.
2.      I manage to dress up early, but then my key decides to hide in only God knows where and then I have to find it. Meanwhile, I have to walk 5mins to the bus stop and catch the next bus if I want to get to school only 5mins late.
3.      I finally find the key in my jean pocket of the previous day, and then I start walking running to the bus.
4.      The bus does what it knows how to do best,; waltz past me just as I am about getting to the bus stop.
5.      The next bus that’s supposed to come in 15mis comes in 16mins. (Duh, when you are already late, that extra minute counts).
6.      I end up sitting in the bus, or standing as the case may be, and I start the ride to school.
7.      Then the annoying part is that, everyone lives at every stop, so as you can imagine, the ride is very long.
8.      The driver is extra slow. When it get this unique stop, they decide to switch drivers, and the drivers end up talking for like 3mins. Then the new driver takes like 4mins to get settled in. Then we continue.
9.      As usual, new driver is super slow, and people continue to live on every stop. (mind you, I’m already like 10mins late to school)
10.   And when the bus almost gets to school, and you think that maybe, just maybe, there will be a little sunlight after this rain called my bus ride, the bus decides to develop mechanical fault.
11.   We either walk down to school, or wait for the next bus.
12.   And then I walk down to school; who are you kidding? I wait for the next bus jor!
13.   So I get to school, already 20mins late, and then end up sitting at the back, and then can’t see anything in front.

Okay, obviously, you would have offended some unseen powers in your village for all of that to happen to you at once.. All of these situations have never happened to me all at once; but most times its usually a combination of at least 3 or 4 of the major events listed above.
So my question as I round up is “why is it that when I’m early, then I get earlier; but when I’m late, boy, I obviously can’t get later? Obviously, the answer is inspired by Celine Dion's all time song "that's the way it is".

Ever experienced this before? Feel free to comment.
Hope you continue being awesome.

Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

#Don't tag me

Hooray! It's Monday again and I'm so happy : said no one ever..
I personally have a grudge against Mondays this semester because I have an 8.30am class. That means I get to wake up by 6am if I want to be early to school.
Anyway, here's my Monday rant, and I hope it brightens your day and make you smile.

When I newly joined Instagram, I noticed something and I'm sure most of you guys, especially Nigerians can relate. You see, it is this thing called picture tagging. Here's how it is done; a lady/guy snaps a very fine picture, uploads it on Instagram, and then decides to put a million hashtags that takes up so much space. The part I found very amusing was the fact that some of these tags were really funny and hideous, I wonder how they even came up with some of them, for example there is this "Africans_on_fire", (biko, who do you want to burn?).
Anyway, at a point, I thought to invent my own hashtags for the African community. Feel free to use them on your pictures, but please don't tag me.
Aren't these tags just awesome?


I hope you have a wonderful week and don't forget to smile.
Don't also forget to leave your comments, they make me very happy.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

I will be with you!

Happy Sunday guys...
Hope y'all went to church. Well I did and I picked up some stuffs for y'all. You know, sharing is loving and y'all know I love you right?
Well, today was one one of those days when I was all gloomy and not wanting to go to church, but I did anyway and I'm glad I did because I was blessed. Here's one of my favorite scriptures of all time and it was no coincidence that the speaker decided to read it out today.
very comforting scripture right?
 And plus there was this little cute baby in church that was trying to wear my heels. I quickly removed it from her ohh, abeg I'm not ready to break the leg of another man's child. All in all, I had a nice time.

What I'm listening to right now.
Hey Guys, In the spirit of  sunday, y'all should go check out this song by Preye the "Ebezina" crooner.

Let me famz small: You see, Minister Preye used to be my choir master when I was in teenagers choir like 7 years ago, so I've known him for some time now. Famzing over.
The title of the song is "Hosanna" and it dropped yesterday :). Check it out.
Hosanna by Preye Odede

How about you guys? hope y'all went to church? Any thing you wanna share? just comment below.
Have an awesome week y'all
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

Winchi Winchi - My make up Story!

"Betty ohh, look at how you are looking like winch"
This is what comes out of Dinah's mouth every time my attempt to get a very glamorous made-up face on another morning has failed. I don't blame her though, if only she knew how much effort I put into having that look, she will at least appreciate is first, before telling me I look like winch.
my make up bag :)


You see, the thing with make-up is that, I can do without it ohhh. But sometimes, you just wake up one morning and after going through Instagram, you see this very glam look you wanna try out. Everyone does theirs' and it looks fine, but when I try mine, I get the "winchi-winchi" tag. So biko, I have learnt to stick to my simple make-up routine of powder and little eye make-up. But when I wanna bring out the mean side of my housemate Dinah, I try getting  wearing very heavy makeup :p.
my multi-colored eyeshadow. I use only 2 colors :)

And for my not-so Nigerian readers, "winchi-winchi" means "witch" which is a very ugly looking person as defined in my diary.

What I'm listening to right now


So before I conclude, don't forget to check out this song "Drip" by Funckleff, my very good friend. I am not lying, he sounds like Banky W. I even think He sings better. Here are the links on notjustok and his own blog. Please do check it out.

Drip at notjustok

COMMENTING 101

Hello lovelies,
How's your Saturday going?
Well, I've received some complaints about some experienced difficulties in leaving comments. Therefore, I decided to write this post to help with that.
Designed by yours truly
Commenting with your name
  1. If you have a Google account, it is very easy for you to comment. Just click on the comment section after every post, write your comments and on the drop down menu, choose Google accounts. Type in your Google account and click publish! Yeah. It is that easy.
  2. If you don't have a Google account, not to worry. Just follow the steps above and when you get to the drop down menu, choose name/url. You need to type in your name and a url. I'll suggest using your Facebook url. If you don't know yours, you can check the General account settings (use a laptop. You won't see it on a phone) on your Facebook and you will find it as your username. It takes this format "http://www.facebook.com/surname.name"
  3. You can use other ID's like WordPress, TypePad, AIM  and OpenID
Commenting without your name
  1. If you don't have any of the above (you be robot? you must at least have Facebook jor) or you don't wanna comment with your name, then you can comment anonymously. Just type in your comments and on the drop-down menu, click on anonymous and publish your comments

Hope the tips were useful? Oya comment and see if it is working.

This is not today's post ohh. Be on the lookout for it.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

Beautiful Beginnings : Why I love my mum

Hey Lovelies,
Yay! It's Friday, that moment of the week we all look forward to. Thanks Guys for the support, between Yesterday and Today I got about 180 page views (Although I am sure I contributed to like 30 views, hehehe.). Keep reading and supporting.

see the funny looking picture I designed.
So I’m going to begin my first  second official post with why I love my mum : hold on, I know what you’re thinking. It is not an emotional teary eyed rant :p. Most people who know me very well know that I love my mum very much, but what they don’t know is why I love her.
Well, I’m going to give you one of the many reasons why I love her very much.
You see, my mum calls me like once a week or two weeks (as she is led by the spirit), but she always calls me around afternoon in Nigerian time. However, when my mum calls me like for the second time in the same week, and around 7/8 am Nigerian time, then I know something  must be up and it usually takes this format.
n/b : my mum calls me a very special name which well, I cannot share, so I’ll use Betty for this post.
MUM: Betty how you dey?
BETTY:  Mummy I’m fine ohhh., how about you?
MUM: I dey fine. Ehem, Betty ohhh, when last did you fast?
BETTY:  Argh Aargh, mummy, did you dream about me today? No wonder you are calling me first thing in the morning
MUM: you have not answered my question ohh, when last did you fast?
BETTY: Mummy I don’t know ohh
MUM: Chai, this girl has backslided ohhhh. So you are now following bad friends?
BETTY:  Haba, mummy, I don’t even have much friends, and besides, you know I’m a student, I need to eat so I can study fine (rolling my eyes)
MUM: Look, whether you are a student or not, you need to pray. You will do only from 6 – 12,  3days fasting
BETTY:  Mummy ohhhh, they are doing fasting in our church, I will join that one
MUM: are you sure? How many days  are they doing it?
BETTY:  Its for like 30 days
MUM: Okay. That’s better. Pray for God’s favor and Long life.
BETTY:  Okay mummy.
MUM: Tell your housemate to join you ohhh, infact is she there? Let me talk to her on the phone,
BETTY:  (Sighs) Amiebi, my mum wants to talk to you
And that is how I will end up fasting for that month, and well, when I would be receiving the blessings, I would just be smiling and wont even remember the numerous sighs that I had made on the phone.
Who wouldn’t love a mum like that?

Keep reading guys and don’t forget to drop your comments. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and kisses. Xoxo.

Hey Guys, Welcome to My Blog.

Hey Guys,

Welcome to my very first Post! I promise not to make it too long.
That's my church self (smiles)
I never thought of starting a blog in my entire life, but well, here am I.
Just for the basics, I'm an international student from Nigeria currently schooling in British Columbia, Canada. I started this blog because I'm bored most of the time so I thought blogging would be a very good way to invest my time and energy.
This blog is a personal blog and so it contains my random thoughts and musings; check bbc.com if you are looking for news.
I am inspired by lifestyle bloggers  Yemisi and Berry Dakara.
I am also inspired by my favorite blog of all times Bellanaija.
I will try my best to post as frequently as possible, so keep refreshing.
Hugs and Kisses. Xoxo.
