You Are Mentally Exhausted

Are you mentally exhausted and don’t know it? There always exist periods where it seems you lose interest in working and develop what can be described as an apathy towards work. Someone could even say you’re being lazy or laidback towards work.

We’ll walk you through a quick test today to check if you’re dealing with exhaustion or you’re just really lazy.

1. You Don’t Feel Motivated.

Not feeling motivated is not always a sign of laziness, it can actually be a pointer to emotional exhaustion sometimes which arises as a result of the fact that you have done so much brainwork without adequate rest.

2. You Can’t Focus Or Concentrate.

Are you finding it hard to concentrate on what needs to be done? If you find yourself getting distracted easily, it could be a pointer to the fact that you are stressed and it needs to be managed before it affects you at the workplace.

3. You Constantly Fantasize About Drastic Change

Do you find yourself suddenly imagining what your life would look like if you won the lottery? Or if someone suddenly relocated you away from the country? Using such fantasies to escape your present reality is a pointer to emotional exhaustion.

4. Small Tasks Seem Overwhelming.

When stressed or mentally exhausted, you suddenly begin to struggle with tasks that you naturally would execute. At this point, work seems like a big deal and you just need it all to stop so you can breathe.

5. Making Your Bill Payments Stresses You.

We know any little thing stresses you out when you’re exhausted, especially when it concerns money. That’s why with www.vtpass.com, you can buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtvDStv, or Startimes, pay electricity bills, buy insurance or pay educational bills at the tap of a button.

When Awoof Ran My Belle

Have you ever been in a situation where the search “awoof” (freebies) landed you in trouble?

I’d always heard it said that “awoof dey run belle,” but experience really is the best teacher I guess.

awoof

On this fateful day, I needed to pay my DSTV subscription. Upon searching online, I found a website offering a 20% discount on payments. “Ahnahn, see free money.” If only I had known village people were after me.

As a sharp guy, I quickly entered the website, inputted my card details and paid for the bouquet I wanted and got debited. I felt great. It was in that moment that I realised it actually feels good to know you got a better deal than the seller. All was alright with the world, until…

Awoof

I started getting a series of consecutive debits on my account. Huh? I live in Meiran, Lagos State to be precise, why am I getting debited in Dubai? Ah, awoof!!! I had fallen prey to a scam website and my account was completely drained that day.

That is where VTpass comes into play. No point running the risk being scammed. Simply log on to www.vtpass.com to buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtv, DStv, or Startimes, or pay electricity bills . . . it’s as easy as Login, Select, and Pay!

How To Survive The Rain

They say it’s summer time but all we are experiencing in these parts is rain, rain, and more rain. The last thing anyone needs right now is for rain to ruin the season, so, here are seven tips on how to survive the rains

Don’t ever forget to close your windows. One of the worst things that can happen to anyone in this season is stepping out of the house, then when the rain begins, you remember that you didn’t close your windows. Many have slept in nature-made waterbeds just because they didn’t pay attention to this tip.

Plan your outfits in advance. This is the season in which your cloths can take up to one week before they get dried up because the rains can help you decide that you haven’t rinsed them enough. You would do well to do your laundry in advance this season.

Never go out without an umbrella. Even if the sun is shining bright and making you sweat, don’t make the mistake of stepping out without taking an umbrella along with you because in 2 secs, your story can be changed by sudden downpour.

Rubber shoes all the way. Now is not the time to wear shoes that are made of cotton or other materials that are very prone to water if you don’t want your footwear to turn into a sponge.

Dress for the cold. As much as possible, ensure you step out with a coat, jacket or sweater in hand. Now is the time to wear thicker fabrics and protect yourself from the cold.

Eat Healthy. You need to pay more attention to your diet during the rains. Avoid street food as much as possible and also keep away from raw vegetables. Maintain a nutritional diet that includes cooked vegetables, fruits, herbal tea. Now is not the time to fall ill.

Don’t go out if you don’t have to. This is the most important tip of all, and thanks to VTPASS, you can make all your payments from the comfort and warmth of your home.

2021 AFCON Qualifiers Predictions

2020 has certainly not been the best year for football lovers as tournaments and fixtures had to be shifted. Nevertheless, the return of AFCON Qualifiers is enough to lift spirits, especially in African football where fans relish the sport.

AFCON Qualifiers began on 11th November 2020 with Guinea beating Chad in the opening match and Senegal punching a 2-0 blow on Guinea-Bissau.

afcon qualifiers predictions

Yesterday, 12th November was a goal feast for AFCON fans as Cameroon chunked out 4 goals against Mozambique’s 1. Current reigning champions, Algeria, walked over Zimbabwe easily with a 3-1 victory.

Nigeria takes the pitch today, 13th November 2020 against Sierra Leone by 17:00 CAT; and at 20:00 CAT, bafana bafana of South Africa would clash with Sao Tome and Principe. But the most exciting clash of the week rests on the match between Egypt and Togo, Saturday 14th November!

That said, here are our AFCON Qualifiers predictions. Prediction of teams who would make it to AFCON 2021.

2021 AFCON Qualifiers Predictions | Teams to Qualify

A tournament graced by 24 teams all competing for Africa’s Champions Crown would definitely be fierce, but you can expect to see these 12 juggernauts on the pitch come 2021:

  • Algeria: The current Champions are fast and deadly, recently taking the throne, and wouldn’t be giving it anytime soon.
  • Egypt: The Pharaohs are AFCON’s most successful champions with 7 titles to their name. Of course, they would make a show.
  • Senegal: With players like Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy, and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Senegal is expected to make it.
  • Nigeria: Super Eagles of Nigeria have qualified for AFCON year-on-year, 2021 shouldn’t be different. Among them, a gang of young stars.
  • South Africa: Africa’s most exciting flags to watch wouldn’t miss it. The bafanas are composed of bright players home and away.
  • Cameroon: Not very consistent over the last few years, Cameroon is yet deadly enough to secure a spot.
afcon qualifiers predictions
  • Ghana: Nothing short of strength is to be expected of the Black Stars of Ghana.
  • Morrocco: Another brilliant team from northern Africa. Last competition, they put up a fight. 2021 shouldn’t be any different.
  • Rwanda: This might come as a surprise to many but Rwanda has been undergoing major sporting changes. Experts predict the result of their sporting project to show in AFCON 2021.
  • Ivory Coast: They are not called Elephants for nothing! Besides, the orange shirts make a colorful divergence from all the greens and yellows.
  • Kenya: When a squad of strong legs is on the ship, you just know they would roll through. Kenya would make 2021 AFCON.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, there is still the qualifiers to play after all. So put on your football socks, subscribe your GOtv, DStv, or Startimes, relax into the games, and enjoy the matches!

Surprises as the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2020/2021 Season Opens

On Tuesday 29th October, and Wednesday 21st October, the first leg of the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League season playoff. We witnessed the return of Europe’s most thrilling football competition and the art of top soccer athletes.

The group stages of the tournament began with surprises and might just end with some more. In this article, we go over some of the unexpected match results from the UEFA champions league 2020/21 opener and matches to watch out for in the group stage:

champions league 2020/2021

Paris Saint Germain vs. Manchester United

Perhaps the only surprise from this encounter was the fact that PSG could still lose to Manchester United after their performance last season. The men from Paris made it to the finals last season but fell behind to Bayern Munich in a 1-0 contest.

Two seasons ago, Manchester United beat PSG 1-3 at the Parc des Princes stadium; everyone thought the Parisians would make a statement in this match with a win. But they fell behind 2 goals to 1 to the Reds.

Chelsea vs. Sevilla

Ok, not much surprise, but here is a match where a 300 million Euro Chelsea squad faces a firepower Sevilla and it ended 0-0. Fans were left a bit disappointed and so are we.

Real Madrid vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Real lost 0-1 to newly-promoted Cadiz last week in La Liga Santander; so it came more like a shock when Shakhtar put them 2-3 to the sword again at home.

Fans all over social media brought Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane under fire. But we feel the manager can only do much. With these results, Real Madrid needs a total squad rethink.

champions league 2020/2021

Pretty much every other game produced expected or near results, especially Bayern Munich who pounded Athletico Madrid 4-0 as a warning of their intent to retain the European Champions crown.

Now, let’s see the top group matches that you can’t afford to miss:

  • Barcelona vs Juventus: The long-awaited Messi vs. Ronaldo meeting after 3 years since Christiano Ronaldo left La Liga would finally happen. Twice!
  • Athletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: The Germans already drew first blood with their 4-0 victory over their Spanish rival. But all roads lead to the Wanda Metropolitano for the return leg.
  • Manchester United vs PSG: Neymar and Mbappe have still got a chance to prove to Europe that Manchester United is not superior to the entire French football.
  • Sevilla vs Chelsea: The return leg of this encounter would hold at Seville and we can’t wait to see it! Perhaps, this is one of the most anticipated encounters after Barcelona vs Juventus.
  • Real Madrid vs Inter Millan: These two giants would meet in the third week of the tournament. A big one. We would get to finally see Zidane take on Conte in a European competition.

Evicted! Keeping Up With BBNaija Eviction (2)

A lot has happened since our last blog post in the BBNaija eviction series. If you’re looking for snippets and pecks into the latest house events, you can always find a pile on Twitter trends. Here, we prefer to wait, gather in the gist and dish it out with clear backup stories; just as you like it.

5 more housemates have left the lockdown house since our last post. Some were evicted singularly, but last night, Biggie gave us that “What?” moment with 3 housemates axed at once.

Here are the latest ex-housemate, and the story behind their eviction from BBNaija 2020:

BBNaija eviction

Kaisha

Ahh, this one pained many. The beautiful northern lady was the fifth housemate to taste Biggie’s axe after falling into the bottom four for possible eviction.

However there was a twist. Kaisha was evicted even after statistics showed that she had more votes than Neo, Trickytee and Wathoni. Fans all over Twitter questioned the authenticity of the votes, but Biggie’s mind was already made up. The lady was out.

BBNaija eviction

Praise

Cool, calm and calculated, Praise was the 6th to leave the house. The 28 years old erotic dancer got the spoon after gathering the least votes out of the four housemates up for eviction 2 weeks ago.

We really got nothing on praise. The guy has been flowing all through with other housemates. It’s only down to shortage of voting fans outside the house.

BBNaija eviction

Tolanibaj

Girl said she would be “missed at Saturday night parties” and we believe her. Tolanibaj had always set the Guiness Saturday night party’s dance floor on fire with her moves and groove. Surely, she would be missed.

Tolanibaj tasted BBNaija eviction after gearing up just 3.57% of total votes from viewers last week. Much to viewers’ dismay, the romantic spark that started between her and Prince days back would never blosom.

Wathoni

Our Kenyan beauty followed Tolanibaj out of the house just seconds after. The shock was written all over her face! But Wathoni stated the week before that she was tired of the house and wihsed to go home. Would we say she got what she wished for?

It doesn’t seem like it. Just days back, she and Brighto began to connect romanticall. She even said she would not allow a fellow female housemate, Dorathy, to take Brighto away from her. Oh well, viewers votes said otherwise.

Brighto

Believe us, this one shocked everyone. Our very own Lord Belish got evicted after summoning only 2.68% of viewers’ votes. No body actually saw this coming but Biggie has his twists. Brighto followed his bestie, Wathoni out of the house seconds after she left.

Named Lord Belish after a popular cunning character from the HBO series, Game of Thrones, Brighto made a name for himself in the house by secretly adding pepper and fire to other housemates situations. He would surely be missed!

The thrice certified engineer said he would be looking forward to adding more professional certificates to his name as he is more of a career person.

Biggie have now evicted 9 housemates, leaving 11 to contest for the grand price of N85 million. Don’t miss an action, VTpass got you covered.
