A few of my favorite things. And fears too.

How do I explain that after living through a couple of decades, I find quite a number of things intriguing? Some of which happens to be my favorite things in the world. As we continue living and coexisting in this space, I am pretty sure that my list of favorite things would definitely increase with some leaving the list and a few goodbyes from me to some.I find it a bit of comfort sharing these deets with you Chum, so

HOW I FEEL AS A NIGERIAN

Explaining to myself in 5 years what happened to Nigeria would come as a flash where in less than fourteen days, things seem to be going back to normal. And normal here ain’t cool. The new normal is how we are getting to where we want to go. With the destruction and vandalization of properties and buildings that are either privately owned or government-owned, to the killings of brothers and sisters in the country, it is saddening to know that

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. It feels like there’s a whole lot still going on in the world apart from the pandemic.

ON LIVING: IS GROWING UP ACTUALLY A SCAM

Sometimes, it feels like I give myself unnecessary headaches, taking paracetamol while trying to wrap my finger about how to journey through life. Since it’s a journey, I am fully down for enjoying the ride, every dang moment that comes, the good, the not so bad, the bad and boy, I really do not want to see the ugly. For the records, I am twenty one years old and I ain’t gon’ lie, life is real. Not scary. (sometimes though).

MILE 12 MARKET: WHAT WE EXPERIENCED

We all have different views on what a market is and how we would like to shop. Back in those days, (after living through another decade I could use that line), I could say the definition of a market has changed. And people too. 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. For me, 2019 was a year that came a bit too fast and

5 amazing ways my ideas and yours play together

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?”. Plus they are not perfect and neither am I. I want to believe I’m not the only one

About Me

I find expression writing about life, style and personal development even as it relates to our day to day activities. This is coupled with the fact that words have lasting impact on people so I ensure to use them for good. We’d talk about life, joy, pain and so much more to the littlest detail. It’d be a great pleasure connecting with you in this space. A lover of arts and poetry.
