How Many Times Do You Become?

How many people do you become? How do I say I am creating a new me? More like designing the life I love. Of late, there has been a whole lot on my mind. From what do I know about myself to what do I want to change about myself. Even down to branding and just being. I would ask myself these questions and more as I search to get the answers. Most times, I end up getting worked up and worried so I just leave it.

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

On Letting Go- Things I Cannot Control

Before 1940, humans existed and were living a pretty comfortable life. July 6, 1928, slice bread was a thing already. This is to wade off thoughts that humans were dressed in animal skins. Cars and class existed and humans’ basic needs had always been met in one way or the other. Emphasis on the year- 1940. A plethora of humans have died, people evolved, trends came and went, and still, nobody, I repeat, nobody wrote a manual about adulting???? It’s

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. It seems the year has been slow and I am grateful for that. I would have appreciated faster months because of my service year and the eagerness to experience change, to

A Year in Retrospect- 2020

DI SCLAIMER: In a bid not to hype 2021, you would see “the year”. know it is 2021. while that year is 2020. Actually, I can call 2020 with my full chest. Thanks for understanding Chum. 2020 was the year I had the longest breaks. And by breaks, I mean off social media. Sometimes, there was a need for the time out. Other times, it was the wrong vibes or anxieties. It came with a lot of tidings, a mixture

What Is The Nicest Thing Anyone Has Said To You?

It is pretty easy to remember all the wrong and bad things someone said to you or says about you. What about the good stuff Chum? Click click, the picture was snapped. My roommate and I decided to go through the pictures and then, there was this particular one where I smiled so wide, you could see my complete sets of teeth (not 32 by the way) but you could see everything. I was smiling from ear to ear. It

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

I know it, when I hear it! Whether I define myself as a music person or not, when I hear music that bangs, I jive to it and it makes my day. Sometimes, these songs are always on repeat until I listen to the life out of them. Other days, I remember an oldie, and the next thing is to sing or hum the lyrics out of the song. Songs uplift. They bring peace. Some days, it is the vibe

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
