You probably know this, but in case you’re new here, my name is Oyinlola, and I’m Christian. I’m not the Christian that believes in shying away from real conversations. I believe Jesus came to challenge our wrong mindsets through his word (he had conversations all through the bible), so our hearts can be transformed. This is why I appreciate pastors/ministers who deliver unfiltered sermons, through empowerment by the Spirit. No longer should Christians pretend that they are not affected by relationship and sex issues. Truth is, we do think about dating and sex, and for a long time, the church avoided delving into these matters. This means that young people like me have been learning about relationships and sex from the world, and we’ve been struggling. These issues affect us, and if we do not learn what God has to say about them, we’ll never attain his fullness for our lives, and always settle for mediocre.

How are you doing? I know Monday is not my official posting schedule, but I decided to post anyways. I’ve procrastinated writing a blog post for two weeks, and that’s not cute. Therefore, I thought there was no better way to get back on the blogging bandwagon than putting up a Let’s chat post on the first day of the week! We haven’t had one since August, can you believe it? I miss sharing random thoughts, reading your beautiful stories and learning from you, that’s why this post is up. Continue reading “Let’s Chat ||Life Lately + Current Season”
How time does fly. It’s been a full month of not writing or putting up any post, and this wasn’t my intent. Let me tell you, I had such huge blog plans for summer 2017. I was going to put up posts almost daily, and be annoyingly consistent. I’m so happy for you guys that this didn’t happen. I was very excited, but you know how life is, you can only plan for the future but you never know how it’ll go. God had a lot of unexpected plans for me. For example, I thought I would have plenty free time during the summer than I did during school but this wasn’t the case. I don’t know how it happened, but summer felt busier than the past semesters. Busy in the greatest way possible. Busy learning, growing, exploring and relaxing. Since I wasn’t prepared for the workload, I slacked with keeping up. But now, I’ve gotten into a steady rhythm of things (just when summer is about to end, yay me), and I’m back! Continue reading “Funny story of how I started blogging”
Guess who finally got off her lazy bum, and is writing? Yep, that’s right, It’s me. Go announce to your friends!

Excuse me there,
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you, I mean maybe just a little bit. But before you get all worked up, this post isn’t me telling you that I’m taking a break from blogging. It was what the post was meant to be about but I had a change of heart. I thought I was getting overwhelmed and needed a break because I wasn’t pushing out as much posts as I wanted to, but that was only because of final exams. Then, I thought I had an excuse to stay away for three weeks because I’ll be going on a trip, and needed to unplug (it sounded like a valid reason), but this is not the case anymore. Continue reading “Let’s Chat| Much needed Break”
I was watching a video yesterday, and it bordered around discussions of faith, especially the christian faith. Many of the discussants gave up on their faith when questions arose, and they were okay with it. This reminded me of a time in my life, about two years ago when my faith started to waver because I had questions. So many questions about God, Jesus and the world, constantly wondering if He really existed. I thought my questions would never be answered, that it was absurd to question my religion, and I almost gave up believing but in the end, I was undoubtedly proven wrong.
It is okay, quite normal to have questions, you won’t be normal if you didn’t. We are humans, and have been blessed with reason, so we are naturally curious especially when we can’t see what we believe in. It’s not okay however to wallow in your questions and not purposefully look for answers. This is when doubt starts to creep in, and in order to doubt your doubts, you need to have solid answers. Remember, even satan knows the bible, and he’ll use it against you. Why not use it against him instead?
There are evidences that God exists everywhere, there are historical evidences that prove Jesus existed too. So, if you have been wondering, doubting, and would like to get answers to some of your questions, leave a comment. If I have an answer, I’ll write a detailed reply. If I don’t, I’ll let you know, do some research, ask other people, and get some. Maybe others in the comment section can help us out too. You might even be able to help someone, so ask away.

Welcome to another ‘Let’s chat’ series guys! Quick question: Do you watch BKChatLDN on youtube? If you do, and you’ve seen the latest episode, it was about the importance of stable finances in a relationship/marriage. We all know love is not enough to make relationships work, at least I hope you do. So, today I want to hear your opinions (both guys and girls). Ladies, would you marry a man who is not rich and doesn’t have the potential to be? Do your financial expectations differ with regards to the man’s age? Guys, would you marry a woman richer than you? Would you be comfortable not being the bread winner of your home? Any unasked questions can be answered too, feel free to say whatever is on your mind.

Hi guys! How you doing? We’ve been a little serious on here for a while, and I thought to switch it up. I hope the title of this post didn’t scare you, it’s very ironic because this post is far from terrifying. Growing up was hard, and I mean that in the best way. I’m sure you all remember being pissed off at your parents almost everyday, wishing you were older and weren’t forced to live with them. Well, that was me, but now I’ve realized that adulting (made up word) isn’t a bed of roses. This leads me into occasional reminiscing of childhood memories that seem funny now, but they weren’t back then. For fun, I dug up some funny memes on my phone, twitter and off the net.
Off the top of my head, I’m going to share one of my childhood memories. I hope you guys join in. What annoying habits did your parents possess that pissed you off so much? Let’s have a laugh. Continue reading “Let’s Chat- Growing up was hard”

Hey guys! Welcome to Hazy Fantasies, thanks for stopping by. You might not know it, but this post is long overdue. Between changing time zones the past two days, I was too exhausted to write. On today’s episode of the ‘Africa they don’t show you’ from the Nigerian perspective, we’ll be talking media. The Nigerian entertainment industry has been on the fast lane recently. Lots of fresh musicians, actors, television stations, and online platforms have emerged. Gone are the days of being just locally known, the industry has gone global. Music artists feature and have been featured by international artists, movie premieres now happen both home and abroad, movies contain local and international scenes. I could not be more proud of my country.
Recently, Nollywood (the Nigerian movie industry) was announced the third largest movie industry in the world. Who would have thought? But, I know this is only the beginning of upcoming breakthroughs. In today’s post, I’m mentioning different platforms where you can have a taste of what the Nigerian media has to offer. Go watch and have a Nigerian themed weekend!
- Netflix: First time I saw a Nigerian movie being streamed on Netflix, I screamed… literally. It was such a joy to see Nollywood get the attention it deserves. These are my favourite Nigerian movies on the platform.
