Rollercoaster Friday

ok so i and my colleagues in a group of 7 had been preparing for this tedious presentation. we were supposed to have presented last week but the lecturer kept changing the requirements. i really thot this was gonna be one horrible presentation. It ended up being a really good one. So i thot why not go to central london and chill out b4 going home.

London Bomb Scare
well initially the main hotspots were taped off by polie cause they were scared of 'u know what'.
Fortunately the 'u know whats' were discovered by accident else 'u know what' cos there were abt 1700 ppl around there

Jermyn street
Jermyn street is a famous shirt-making street where i often pass many times and wish i could get one of dem shirts. Well on fiday, i jus took went in, pickecd a shirt, dint have much money but i jus thot i wanted to treat myself

Canada day
i was around leicester square and i saw these huge crowd..apparaently a rock group was performing right next to the canadian embassy.. it was this huge exhibition with posters of canada everywhere. it was fun. i guessed its probably the national day is around or something. Ayoks will have somethin to say abt that, i'm sure.

Moroccan Marrakesh
To celebrate the success of our presentation, my fren, Ali who works in a Morrocan restaurant called 'Marrakesh' invited me to come and have fun.. So after leaving the canada placei went to Marrakesh. its quite different from anythin i've seen...The sittin arrangement's very different..everyone sits fren said they used to have belly dancers n all. Anyway to the food, it was something called Lamb Tangine which tasted like something from the mid-east, more pakistani than indian was potatoes and lamb in some spicy stew with white pitta bead well cut. The best part was i dint have to pay cos my fren sponsored. that was a relief now cos i was happy enuf to stay at home and microwave some frozen food before the offer.

Grandma's burial
Anyway i got home and called my parents. My grandma's burial ceremony was completed yestada. They think they missed me at the event. I am thinking i missed the whole event. Anyway it ws good to hear their voices even though they were obviously very tired.

Thank you for your mercy
'The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness o LOrd'

stay blessed...n remain in Him

A couple of tough weeks done with: Praise God.
i submitted all my asignments today...finally
Even tho exam is just about 10 days away,
i am so relieved at gettin the assignments done with

I moved to a new house last week... (close to school n church yay!!!)
my roommate is a guy from Czech republic
with a seemingly simple life:
Go to work, eat, watch tv, sleep.
i am sure i'll see mo of the other parts soon.
(p.s. do not be decieved, there is no such thing as a simple life, God made us to do much more, problem is many times those dimensions of excitement, interest, adventure and destiny only live in our minds and fantasies)

Yes! my stocks are doing well ( thanks to God..
I am trying to be able to visit Nigeria this christmas..really hope i can make it
Finally watched Oceans 13..dem dudes really make stealing look that easy...
Jumping a bus in London is hard enough (chuckles)

Amazing Grace

I'm sure you can remember that hymn...
Originally composed by John Newton, a man named John Rees added a new verse that has become part of the song for a while.... I am hooked on this new it...enjoy.....

"When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun."

Wild @ Heart

In John Edridge's book "wild at heart", he proposes some very interesting ideas. These were discussed in a MUSCLE meeting in church the other day. And i was wondering, what do you think about this thoughts. here they are:

Every boy/man wants:
1. a battle to fight
2. An adventure to live
3. a beauty to rescue

Every girl/woman wants:
1. to be wanted (to be pursued)
2. an adventure to share
3. a beauty to unveil

Do you identify with any of these....let me know your thots. If you are not sure about what i have written, think about the movies you have liked and still like. Were there times where you have dreamed of being the hero, the one to rescue the princess or the girl, OR were there time when you wanted to be the beautiful one being rescued.

Btw i am adding this link, its for a brother in my church who raps bblssfully with powerful Spirit-inspired lyrics..check it out. His name is gems.

stay blessed.

UntimelY UpDatE

Of course an update is overdue
So many missin links...lets tie it up now

double swoop
i have got two new housemates, the best part is one is from Malaysia, the other is from Nigeria that's even mo interesting considering its coming at a time when i am contemplating
moving to a new house so i am thinking.... do i still wanna move?
Hold the thought.......

exams? what exams?
can u imagine that my exams are in a month's time...gosh!! how time flies.. and assignments still piling but its no point moaning over exams anyway.

England vs Brazil?
i did not want to watch this match even tho ppl were goin crazy over this match in London. Anyway a lot of strange things happened.
1st: i supported England, that is so weird cos i never support English national football team,
i guess i felt sympathetic.
i went to the the nigerian embassy n i decided at the last minute to giv myself a treat and watch the match at a sports bar ...which was not bad. (everyone who was not British was supporting Brazil...erm except yours truly)

this week, i have had phone calls waking me up with good news.
on monday i think, a fren from malaysia woke me up with some real good news that i was excited throughout the whole day..days lateranother call from nigeria..
this morning, someone called and gave me a gift of 300 pounds (incidentally, i had gone to bed thinking about money hehe). God sure knows how to surprise. erm...btw keep the calls coming lol

Grandma farewell
Well my grandma passed away about a month ago, but it aint so sad cos she was quite old, a strong woman who lived a legacy many of which i admire. she also knew God. Anyway mum called, and she wants me to write a farewell greeting on behalf of all the grandsons which will be in the program notes later this month at the final burial ceremony.

Going to manchester
One of my mum's frens is having a birthday 5 hours away in manchester,
i have been sent a return bus ticket to go join them for the weekend so iam really looking forward to that. besides manchester is where my favourite football team is so there'll be no shortage of sight-seeing.

Men Under Spiritual Construction and Life Empowerment.
thats the name of my church men's group and we have a meeting in 30 minutes.God has been veryfaithful to me the last few weeks even in the frequency and power of His revelatory word.

i'll be stopping here for now...hopefully this is a return to active blogging.
love you and stay blessed
