Pet names.

“Nneoma!” Bad sign. That’s the name I get when I have disappointed you. People would usually choose this time to call one’s full name but not you. I get pet names especially ‘Nneoma’. ‘What have I done baby?” I ask quietly. “You know you have done something?” ‘Pet names baby,” It is simply that easy. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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! […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two more days… The excitement is on a high even though I’m good at hiding all things giddy and all things touchy. Song- 22 by Taylor Swift. All thanks to Roy for giving me the album – Red. I’m still jamming to this one plus it’s so appropriate. Moment- Well this is a really awkward […]

Thank God, it’s back, […]

Reading hurts…….or does it???
