Harry Potter and Me – A Tag Post.

HOGWARTS! HOGWARTS! HOGGY WARTY HOGWARTS!!! I love books. I’m guessing you already know that. What you might not know is that I love magical books more than most and that any book that is set in a world with magic or some sort of special skill makes me fall in love. That said, I’m sure […]

Hey guys, how was your night? Great I hope. Mine was cool. When you sleep with the knowledge that the next day (and the day after) is a public holiday, you tend to have a more restful night. Happy Sallah guys! Yesterday I was talking about giving and how sometimes, we just don’t do it […]

There is no title for this๐Ÿ™…

When I started this blog, I wanted to tell stories. Stories of love, happiness, fear, anger and sadness. But I wanted them to be my stories. It was my blog, my space. My place. Most of the stories were supposed to be stuff that I couldn’t just up and discuss with someone else but I […]

Games Village…

The first man came sometime in December. I had just returned after my call to bar and I was cleaning my room. Next thing I heard was the sound of dripping liquid outside my window. Or so I thought. I actually thought someone was pouring water out their window from one of the rooms upstairs. I look out to confirm and I see this guy, happily uriniating in front of my window. What the hell!

Thank you! 100 Followers Y’all! 100!

I’ve said this before, I celebrate all my wins. Every single one. There is nothing like a small win for me and if I didn’t currently live in a place where I don’t know where to find ice cream, I would definitely be getting ice cream today!

Because this blog is my scream pillow.

I want to scream right now and I can’t do it in civil society. But I think I can do it here. I don’t feel my best. The above is what I’ve been reciting to myself for the past 3 hours and I’m failing miserably. I’m not very happy but I’m learning now more than […]

Happy independence Nigeria… One day later.

Yesterday, October 1, was Nigeria’s Independence Day. Nigeria turned 58. I’m a Nigerian and Independence Day is usually a public holiday, there are parades in every state and everywhere is in a celebration mode. Yesterday was different. I kept waiting for the ‘feeling’ to write about Nigeria but it never came. And that’s when it […]

NYSC tales… 3

Hello! First off, I could not do that long title again and I apologize. ๐Ÿ˜ Secondly, I am having serious issues with being consistent at the moment. It’s not writer’s block. I’m just lacking the motivation to pick up my pen and write phone and type. Once again, I apologize. I’m sorry๐Ÿ˜ฅ Back to NYSC […]

All you need to know before you go for the NYSC Orientation Camp 1.

Helloooo! I just got back from orientation camp in Wailo, Bauchi State where I was basically phoneless. Network was so bad, I couldn’t even check my mails for 3 weeks! But I’m out now ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒWho missed me? I missed you too. I went for NYSC immediately because I felt that if I allowed myself to […]

Grateful and Celebrating!

Hello lovelies! There is so much to celebrate! I’ll go point by point. I published the last official story of Embellished (see previous post). I remember when I started writing these stories, just looking around in class and generally picking stuff on the way. With time, I added some of my own personal experiences. Boom! […]

One chance!

For a split second, Tolu wondered how on God’s green earth she got into such a horrible situation. Gbenga was forcefully pulling her against himself and well, she was no match for a guy who was either drunk, high or plain crazy. All she had wanted was a hi and a handshake. The said confrontation […]

Self-imposed loneliness, aka, The art of being purposely antisocial.

Sometimes I shudder at myself. And here’s why. I am at a birthday get-together and it is all my friends gathered in one place. I am supposed to be happy right? And having the absolute best time of my life, yes? All my friends in one place, my kinda music playing, suya and cake all […]

Affirmations to remember during some of your worst days by Jessica.

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while. I have my first exam on Friday and then it’s about 3 weeks to Bar finals. Sometimes I get scared. Sometimes I panic. Sometimes I sleep in frustration. Sometimes I’m numb. I have come up with a billion ways to motivate my self but trust me, there is no […]

Celebrating 10 Rays of Pure Sunshine!

Good morning lovelies… I’m so grateful to God to be awake this morning. I have had the greatest so-so six months ever and today is the last of it. I’ve had the past few weeks very tough and my grandma’s burial was yesterday. So it’s kinda blue for me. But, some people know how to […]

5 Important Lessons. From Candy Crush.

Hello my wonderful people. I know I said I will stay away but candy crush has been crushing me for days! I’ve been on a version of the game and I play it so seriously, my books think I’ve broken up with them. I’m still reading ooh but it’s looking like I’m having some side-chick […]

The power of a smile.

It’s been a great week so far. OK I’ll be more honest. I couldn’t wait for the week to end. Came down with something on Tuesday. I don’t know what was wrong with me except I had all the symptoms of a sick person sans the fever. I was ready to snap at anybody who […]

First time ever! One post a day goal reached!

Hullo everyone, I’m so excited. While you read this, try to imagine that I’m talking in my Cardi B voice. It sucks but just humour me! I’m so excited! I always say I’ll try to do one post a day and see how that goes for a week but I never get to it. I […]

Nigerian Lawmen and the Not-so-Subtle Art of Being Unruly.

Please I just want to ask a question. Is there any other place in the world where police men break traffic rules for no just cause or reason except that they feel like? Because I’m tired of Nigerian Policemen, especially the ones that move about in those their rickety vans with the loud sirens. Just […]

This or That….

Hello lovelies… If you could hear me now, I’m trying to do a Cardi B impression while saying that but I digress. One of the reasons why I have enjoyed blogging so far this year (the year I got serious) is because of the blogging community on wordpress. They have been a great family, providing […]

‘In Law School, a plate of food is N700. Just brace yourself to be eating once a day’ ‘In Law School, just pack provisions and chin-chin. Omo, you gats make up for your stomach ooh.’ ‘In Law School, if you decide to be doing 1-1-1, your money go just finish’ Fiafiadumo thought of all the […]
