That is true, but bear in mind that delivery normally suffers delay during major promos and festive seasons due to backlog of orders arriving the country on a daily basis, and needed to be cleared.

Oh yeah. That’s right.

They said products that come to their pick up centres that they share with jumia only stays 4 days there and if it's not picked up it is sent back

Yes. I guess it means they’d send it back to their warehouse in Lagos. And I could still ask for a retrieval but the issue is that the package haven’t reached Lagos since last week.

Did they not call you ? Forget about that order cause it's most likely on its way to china now

No. I didn’t get their call. Wow, why would they take it back just like?

Thanks for the help tho.

My delivery failed. It’s my first time using Speedaf and before I could figure out that my package arrived, it was already on its way back to Lagos.

I’ve been calling them since then and till now, the waybill is still yet to reach Lagos since 25th of last month. Who has experienced this before? Or it’s probably in Lagos already but they are too lazy to update?

Cos I’m confused.

Literature / How Upwork Works For Writers by Heloct(f): 1:44pm On Feb 05, 2022
I opened this thread for everyone of us to learn.

I started on Upwork late last year and I got my first job immediately. It was all sweet dreams and all I ever wanted. It looked so easy.

Going forward, It was difficult to get a second job though I later did. The experience with the second job has left me traumatized ever since.

To the experienced Top rated users here, can you please share your experiences and how you got to where you currently are?


This would help a lot.

Literature / Re: Nairaland Writers, How Are You Mentally? by Heloct(f): 1:38pm On Feb 05, 2022
Godmother:


You don't earn peanuts, that's if you know your worth. It's possible to earn $1,500 on a book of 15k words at $0.10 per word.

$1,5000 in today's currency rate is almost a million.

Besides, who says you can't freelance and still write your own books.

I think trudging on; writing books after books that don't see the light of stardom is the true form of slavery.

Money pays the bills, bring some level of comfort, and also serves as an effective tool for promoting and marketing your books.

You've got to know what you are doing to really make it as a writer.

I freelanced for a while and on some of those days I earned up to 8k in a single day. Now though, I self-publish on Amazon KDP and earn between 40k to 120k in passive income. It doesn't get better than this.

I'm contented with where I am for now, but looking to improve in the near future.

I guess the struggle here comes from the fact you are obsessed with and focused on becoming a celebrated author and it's killing you that this isn't happening.


Hi smiley

I would like to send you a private message if you don't mind. I want to see how I can tap from your Amazon KDP knowledge.

Thank you.

Family / Why You Should Be Choosy About Who To Settle Down With by Heloct(f): 9:54am On Jan 18, 2022
This is going to be fun.

My points are basic so you might know them already.

Relationships are wonderful when we choose right.

When people are like 'he isn't my type, I just don't think she's right for me.' You are always quick to talk them down and categorize them into being picky.

I will advise you to be picky. It is the best chance you have in getting it right.

Come on, I can pick what to eat, pick what to wear, reject some things others enjoy but I can't do the same with a partner?

A life partner?!

When a guy comes, friends might advise you to just take him. He's doing well for himself, he has a nice life, he's a cool guy. What more are you looking for?

Lol. For real? What more are you looking for?

Are those enough really? If you choose someone because they are nice, I don't know what to say to you.

...Or if you choose a guy because he is funny. Haha.

A funny guy might make you cry. Your home might be boring. Maybe he's just funny to the world and that was how you met him.

But a guy that brings laughter to the home, who makes everyday count, who is a friend. No one else has to know. He doesn't have to be a comedian before he makes you laugh.

I can't tell you how to choose. But I can tell you some of your choosing points have expiration dates.. I mean the slim frame, the flat tummy, the arse, the vacations and the treats.

It will not always be there. So, you might choose for a bigger picture. A bigger frame.

You could still be so choosy and end up with the wrong person. These things don't come with manuals.

Food comparison keeps getting in my head so forgive me.

Let's say you don't like Dodo. Many people would be amazed. They would be surprised.. It's only a few of us who don't.

If you try it out and keep forcing it in, you might end up wanting more. We all had meals we rejected in the past but can't do without now.

But let's say you kept rejecting it, you kept reaffirming it, you bring everyone up to date. 'I DON'T LIKE DODO!'

Then, you won't get served with DODO!

You've filtered out the negatives.

So, being choosy has more to do with you than who you are choosing. You raise yourself, you nurture your mind, you grow, you read, you are up to date.

You reject what you don't like. It's easy.

You let the world know what you are like, then you get to see the mirror.

You don't sit down so lazily everyday and expect to be chosen by a career-minded person. No one sticks around with a loser. The job, however, doesn't end when you meet your chosen choice.

And to be choosy, you have to be a price yourself.

PS: There are many factors that help us to choose right. God, love and comfort. It depends on how you are wired although you need them. It isn't just a game of instincts or luck. Good luck figuring it out.

Career / Re: What Do You Hate Most About Working From Home? by Heloct(f): 4:37pm On Jan 03, 2022
I hated myself the first few months of working from home. I was losing the balance I needed to be creative.

Working from home is sweet if only you can find the balance and manage your time pretty well.

Okay..

Imagine if she was a clergywoman, she would have used her experience and God's instruction to her as a doctrine for her followers.

And it will pass on to generations.

You can't gather people together for a purpose and not compensate them with any form of refreshments. It's just courtesy.

What I don't like is overdoing parties and running into debt.

I have never had any embarrassing experience with any celebrity. Even on days I stood close to them or we get to be in the same space, I don't ask them for pictures. I just do my thing and be normal.

I don't know why I am this way but I like it.
