My First Podcast + Important Life Lessons

Did you just read the Post title? I finally did my First Podcast! | Not that am new to the Podcast of a thing Concept but me doing it especially at this moment, IS A REALLY REALLY LITTLE BIG THING (In Iris West's Voice as seen in The Flash Movie). In this post, i'm going to tell you what makes my podcast special and the life lesson you too can learn from what i just did.


Incase you're wondering What is a Podcast? A Podcast is simply a digital audio available on the internet for download usually in series. There are different topics people usually perform podcast on, like Darren Rowse of Problogger.Net whom usually did his Podcast in form of Blogging Tips.
The podcast i did was about TWB latest short-story which is My First Love Story Series although i've only done the podcast for that of the Story Intro. (see link at the last paragraph).

What Made My First Podcast Special

  • Let me describe my feelings in 3 steps - *. You know that kind of feeling a baby feels when he took his first step after crawling for a long time? <= I was excited to take the NEW STEP.
    *. That kind of feeling you get when you had your first mobile phone, <= I was Curious.
    *. The Kind of feeling a mother gets when she had her first child, <= I feel light-hearted after bearing the thought in my mind for a long time.

    Even though i've been aware about what a Podcast is, since a while, i was reluctant (or should i say timid) to try it. Then recently, i decides to take a bold step and JUST DO IT!

What My First Podcast Taught Me

  • BEFORE I DECIDED TO DO IT, I was waiting for THE RIGHT TIME, - A TIME i'd have my PC to make necessary changes on the Podcast, A TIME i would be ready to do the Voice Recording, A TIME that i won't be faced with any Distraction, but the truth is; Waiting for THAT TIME would be like waiting forever simply because;

    - I can't predict THE TIME i would get a PC, so why the wait. Why not just Do it Now using the available means!
    - There is no time that i can't get distracted, i just need to be determined and focus on what i wanted to do.

My First Love Story Part 3 (High School)

A group of 4 girls whom were in school uniforms were seen talking in front of the school gate. They seems to be so engrossed in their discussion so much that they didn't notice a boy in the same school uniform standing behind them.

''I hope you are all preparing for the forthcoming exam?'' said one of the girls
''am trying my best Bunmi, but i don't know about the others ooh'' Moji replied
''Me too. Thanks to Abbey who helps me with mathematics sometimes.'' Oyinda added
''I trust you Oyin. I hope you're paying lesson fees for him sha?'' Ayomide, the tallest among them said
''The subject is very important for my career and yet, can be confusing sometimes'' Oyinda added
''Maybe i should start collecting the tutorial fee as from today'' Abbey finally interrupts in the girls' discussion


They were all surprised except Oyinda whom says she's used to being pranked and surprised by Abbey. After a little chit-chat, Oyinda told her friend she's leaving for home with Abbey

Did You Miss The Previous Part, Read it at My First Love Story Part 2 (The Eclipse)

While on their way back home, the two friends started their usual discussion which usually revolves around school stuff, home, and other things.

Though they were attending the same school, their department was different as Abbey was in the science department whilst Oyinda was in the commercial department. However they still share knowlegde and helped each other on the subjects which were common to the two departments.

''Its less than two weeks to our exam and am still kind of afraid'' Oyinda said
''Afraid of what?'' Abbey replied softly
''i don't know what exactly it is. I just hope i don't take this kind of feelings till the day''
''do not worry Oyin. Everything is going to be fine''
''I hope it will''
''you don't trust me?''
''of course i do?''
''then believe my word that everything is going to be fine''
''you must be joking. Its okay sha'' Oyinda replied and they continued walking.

**** 2 months Later ****

Abbey's Parents were seen discussing about a matter. It seems Abbey's Mom did not want to agree at first but later changed her mind after being convinced. Few minutes later, Abbey's Mom sent for her son.

''Your father informed me now that we're moving to a new location in a month to this time'' She said
''a month?'' Abbey said feeling surprised
''I guess its enough time to say goodbye to your friends here''
''hmmm... To be sincere mom, it isn't.'' Abbey said feeling speechless and lost in thought
''Its what we need todo'' Abbey's Mom said and left for the inner room.

My First Love Story Part 1 (Childhood)

The following day, Abbey told Oyinda about their transfer. One doesn't need to be a truthseer before pointing out that the two friends weren't happy but they have no choice.
''I guess the yoruba proverb is true afterall'' Oyinda said with weakness showing in her voice
''and what is that my dear friend?'' Abbey replied trying to hide the weakness in his own voice
''that 20 friends cannot play for 20years''
''but we're not 20 friends, remember?'' Abbey tried to cheer her up with his usual creative manner
''you have started again'' Oyinda smiled
''And i'll try to ensure we play for 20years and break that record''
''How will you do that when you're leaving in a month's time?''
''By contacting you no matter how far i go''
''okay. So when should we be expecting our O level result?''
''It was stated we would be aware of when its out but once i knew, i would call you''

The two friends discussed about what they wish their result are and other things before Oyinda was called by her Mom to go and prepare food.

To be continued...

**** Moral ****
Life is too short, so enjoy it with your loved ones while it lasts. Abbey never realized he's going to depart from his friend so soon maybe he would have told her some other things, likewise spent more moments.


5 Core Importance of Health and Fitness In Our Lives

There goes a saying which stated thus that "Health is Wealth" and indeed it is true because someone with inadequate health won't be able to do things that would made him/her to acquire wealth.
Although i was aware of the fact that staying healthy does matter a lot BUT to tell the truth, i wasn't paying attention to my health status which made me to break down recently (like i ignored the hair stylist and pay the penalty:/).
Having now regainning the lost strength back, my eyes opened to the importance of good health and i thought of sharing it on this blog whenever i had the enough energy todo so.


Due to the reason i stated in my liebster award nomination about who inspire me (check question No #6), i worked myself more than i supposed to, and to worsen it all, i did only rest for a little period.
Not that it was my fault for the too much activity i involved myself which deteriorates my health status though, but i still held myself responsible because i would have avoided those things.

(What Sleeping Late Can Cause [Health Effects])

So dear TWB READERS both NEW (if you just stumbled upon this blog) and LOYAL reader (if you've already been a fan), below are the importance of being healthy which i deduced from my recent inactivity.

5 Importance of Good Health And Fitness In Our Life

  1. Ability to Partake In Any Activity - Good Health allows you to go anywhere you want and do whatever you want to do. Whether you wants to goto a wedding ceremony, either a birthday party, social gathering, or any form of recreational activities, GOOD HEALTH is the major Factor that influences as to whether you'll enjoy it or Not.
  2. You Don't Get To Use RECOMMENDED Medicines - The sight of those innocent medicine capsules waiting to enter through your mouth to the stomach often make me cringe. I understand that people use them for a good purpose but i don't know why, am just kind of -should i say allergic- to them.
    When one is healthy, you don't have to worry about using a RECOMMENDED medicines.
  3. Walk, Run and FLY to Wherever you Want - Never mind the word 'fly', seems i've exagerrated :/ | But sincerely speaking, when an human is in good health, he/she can choose to WALK and/or RUN for exercising, to a friend's place e.t.c
    My current situation limited to these freedom and prevents me from re-visiting someone regarding my writing works.
  4. Ability To Spend Quality Time With Your Family - If you're a father, you can choose to plan a short vacation with your wife and children just to have some good time likewise fun together! You might decides to go for shopping or go see some animals in the Zoo and took pictures. It might also be watching a movie together in the cinema house or a picnic!
    Whichever one you choose, it can all be done when you are in Good Health.
  5. Make Positive Impact - If you're thinking of sharing knowledge, spreading smiles, helping someone financially or psycologically, being in Good Health is the only way to go. For without it, it would be almost impossible to make a positive impact like we wished for.
Those are the few importance of being in good health and fitness hence it is a MUST we all stay healthy. I've also once written steps and easier method to stay healthy, you can go read it at 5 Easier Ways You Can Use To Maintain Good Health.
