Here are 6 thing you need to do if you want to be a PhD holder by 30

As messed up as people think our educational system is in Nigeria, you will be amazed to find lots of educated people around. There are people who are constantly thirsty for knowledge and would do all it takes to learn.

Even though many people nurse the desire to be educated, the stress of gaining admission withers their thoughts. Considering this major challenge, many people’s dreams of graduating at an early age get shattered.

Many Nigerian youths had their lives mapped out before the struggle of gaining admission set in. This issue leaves most Nigerian parents exasperated thus, they go for private universities which are not plagued by the regular strikes that have reduced the glory of the federal universities.

Whatever the situation may be, do not ever allow the obstacles you see on the way to make you lose focus. Remain steady with whatever it is you know how to do best; the obstacle can be the way. Let your desire to be successful be as strong as ever.

Due to many reasons, the graduates produced by the tertiary institutions seem to be individuals with a wealth of experience given their struggle to get in and the hustle to make it even after graduation.

As flawed as the educational system is, we still have young chaps who are intelligent and dedicated to academic work. Tertiary institutions in Nigeria admit tonnes of people who apply for their postgraduate programs.

Amazingly, we have some Nigerian youths who are already PhD holders even though they are in their 20s. Check out the things you can do if you want to be a PhD holder before age 30:

1. Know your strength

The underlining note is to try and have an early start in life. If you are hell bent on being a PhD holder before you clock 30, then you need to know what you are getting into.

You should be smart enough to study courses that you will not have to struggle with before you understand the basics.

If you did not have the opportunity to make your own decision with your choice of study, you can make plans to change to your preferred department. Do not allow yourself to be pushed.

2. Set goals

No one can know you better than you. It is your sole responsibility to draw out plans on how you want your life to be. On this note, set goals that are in line with your pursuit of the PhD.

Take small steps towards your goals and work diligently in ending set tasks. Be realistic with the goals you make.

3. Be determined

There will be obstacles on the way. If you are studying in a federal university, there may be long strikes that may leave you crippled with the fear of not achieving your aims and objectives. Do not be daunted by these things.

Fixing your eyes on the prize will renew your strength each time. Do all that is within your power not to quit on your dreams when the times get rough.

4. Choose the right schools

Some tertiary institutions teach some courses better than the others. Depending on what you want to major in, choose schools that will support your dreams and help you achieve your set goals.

If you plan to study abroad, most of the schools there have professionals who will guide you when it comes to choosing courses. Your talents and abilities come in useful here as they will help you have a better understanding of your course.

While studying, remember time waits for no one. Avoid procrastination and every element that comes with it. Make effort to finish your course work within the time allocated by the university. Projects should be done and submitted at the right time too.

5. Study like your life depends on it

Being a PhD holder at a young age is no joke. You have to be prepared to make sacrifices in order to get it done once and for all. Being young is an advantage as you are able to stretch yourself and do the needful.

The saying ‘make hay while the sun shines’ is deep! As an undergraduate, there is a minimum grade you must have if you want to further. In most Nigerian universities, a grade point of 3.5 is perfect for a master’s degree while 4.0 will be considered for a PhD.

6. Acquire skills

Even as you struggle to fulfil your dreams, endeavour to learn from other people. One key to being successful in life is not to be limited to a particular field. While you are studying and preparing to get your degree, acquire as many skills as possible.

Go for short courses in addition to the free training programs organised by schools. Find ways of testing your knowledge by applying the things you learn in your everyday life.

Do not be a loner, have mentors who can add to your knowledge and share their life experiences with you. You never can tell when the skills you are learning will come in handy.

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

So, guys, what can you expect to happen to your Pen.!s when you grow older? These clues will prepare you for the inevitable changes.

How Pen.!s changes with age?


When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.



It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.


You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party


You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol


Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house


That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her


She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
