If Not Now, Then When?

 Hey there,

It's been a little while and I apologize for being AWOL. I don't know if I mentioned on here that I started a new job last month (I probably didn't seeing as I've been MIA) and the new schedule is taking a little getting used to - imagine needing to get used to working regular 8am to 5pm hours! Chai, I tried in my previous role o. Anyways, I'm here today to ask you, "If not now, then when?"

A Throwback and a Giveaway!

 It's Throwback Thursday!!!!!!!!!!

Who remembers how I started blogging in the very first place?

If you don't remember, I'm about to remind you - The Aje-Butter's Guide to NYSC blog! In case you're newer, I started blogging in December 2011 about my NYSC service year (see my very first blog post ever!). I moved back to Nigeria in June 2011 to start NYSC and decided to blog about my experience. After the year was over, I had enjoyed blogging so much, I decided to start this one. I've spent the last hour going through that old blog and JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMN, I was a TOTAL HOTTIE (see photos from this post where I re-rocked my NYSC uniform in different ways)!!!! Please somebody should help me figure out how to get that body back with minimal effort. Thanks in advance.

This time 5 years ago, I had just moved back to the US and had no money. It took a good 5 months before I was hired in a low-paying job. Before I got here, my previous employer back home in Nigeria hadn't paid me for 5 months, so when I say I had no money, I really mean I HAD NO MONEY!

To Date or Not to Date?

What's up beautiful people? I hope you had a nice weekend. It's your Berrylicious blogger/podcaster again (duh this is my blog) and today I want to address dating when your marriage is over. I can say that for the past maybe year or two, I've been asked several times when I'll start dating again and my answer has always been...
