TO EXIST LOUDLY + WHAT IT MEANS TO ME

I can remember vividly a post that was tweeted which I shared on the 1st of January, 2020. However, I cannot remember exactly who tweeted that but it read something like “this year, I am going to exist loudly.” This means I was going to take chances, to live fully and powerfully, live my best life e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y, be bold and dauntless, harness opportunities, post regularly (this is a big deal to me and almost like a chore) Read On living: is

WHY COVID 19 IS NOT THE TITLE OF THIS POST + OTHER THINGS I WANT TO SAY

Colour me shocked, fearless, lowkey happy (just because of the break) when I heard about the recent happening in the world. I do not intend to bore you with the details and how much you and I should cling to safety. I practically stalled this post for two major reasons 1. I do not want to write about just COVID 19 and, 2.

The first time I went to mile 12 market, I had just completed secondary school and was awaiting admission into a federal university. So my mum suggested I went along with her and I was cool

What’s in a Name?

I went to the bank yesterday and I got the same response I always get when I tell people my name. Weird pronunciations, funny facial expressions and a mix of suppressed laughter or the linking of my name with a part of history. Sometimes, it gets uncomfortable until it does not. Overtime, I have learnt to embrace every part of me (which includes my name) that reminds me of who I am. Most times when we meet someone newly, we

A Recap of 2019 + Moving Forward

It is me stepping out of my comfort zone and seeing the beauty in staying true through and through. On the first episode of “who’s got time? Keep ticking”. It’s the 6th of January and I felt this should have come earlier. Well, here we are. The tiny bits, the big ones, that made 2019 what it was are going to be spilled straight from my heart.

He says a lot of stuff that makes total sense to me. She also initiates conversations that get me thinking, dang! you’re one of a kind. I also have a couple of friends that talk about unbelievably smart but you-have-to-believe statements that crack me up and in the middle of our conversation gets me thinking, “how on earth did I meet you?”.

At that point of realisation, we forget the many things that are fine, that are alright, that isn’t wrong. Different thoughts begin to dance in our heads like what if we could change a particular situation, a particular person or an event that has already taken place. Funny enough notusuallyfunny,
