Have a Tote-ly Amazing Week!

What are you up to this week? Staying at home with my baby brother while submitting applications has been quite fun plus couple of assignments he has to do that I end up assisting him with. I would not call it fun if he has to choose between I and his teacher. It is called picking sides. Lol but what do I know? I finally saw the new episodes of one of my favorite series- New Amsterdam and all I

My heart was in Lagos.A couple of tears dropped when I saw my state of deployment and big thanks to face masks that I could hide behind. plays big girls do not cry by Sia For the first time after

Taking it All In

taking it all in

I do not want to delve into much of what I have been up to of late. And if there is anything you must know; I am trying to storm through adulting, not particularly making intentional mistakes but picking up lessons to hold my hands to a safe place.

On Music And Love: What Is Your Current Favorite Song?

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

FOCUSING ON WHAT IS INSTEAD OF WHAT IF?

A big shout out to everyone who’s trying to live in the future. Hollup! let’s live now. It’s pretty easy to see a whole lot of things being done wrong. 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,
