Thanksgiving

I’ve never been the conventional boring person but recently I’m like how do I put up with my boredom, talk more of the people around me. I am going to write today like this is my diary. I’ve been observing social distancing in the real sense with almost everyone. Most days I’m just confused. What next? And then what? I can hardly think of the next thing to do. My emotions are everywhere causing havoc. I’ve tried registering for a…

Change is coming

Somehow and somewhere in my heart I always prayed for change. It seemed impossible. It felt like we’ve adjusted to the system of corruption and it was working fine for us. I grew up with a system where the masses thanked the kleptomaniac leaders for the crumbs accumulated from the national reserve.The whole system was fucked up. The poor got poorer and the “ogas at the top” knew only one thing: how to keep stealing. Hoodlums were created as a…

September 2020

My September started uncertain and at the end it became clear that everyday was the summary of my last 8 months. It was filled with  congratulations from engagements, condolence messages, my vlogging (this isn’t still a thing though 🤣🤣🤣), summer, autumn, church, school, lockdown, making new friends, losing friends, birthdays, swimming, parties, dates, forgiveness, learning, good vibes, faith, trust and bonding. I was mostly stressed this month from my dissertation but I thank God I’m fine and it’s finally over.…

If you’re happy and you know it

Can we all decide to take a break from all that’s going on around us and decide to happy regardless of how sad we feel? Some of us are having the worst moment of our lives. I really wish I can relate with every struggle and come up with the best solution. Life is made up of seasons. We’ve come to realise that life events don’t exactly go according to how we plan them. Let’s have the courage to be anything else…

Pure vibes and Insha Allah

I’ve been all about being peng with my jpegs. The past few weeks were like the best so far. I started a Whasapp vlog. Tbh it doesn’t make sense to me as the executive producer, cameraman, director and videographer but I have views and fans 🤣🤣🤣. I love you guys. It started as a joke but my friends write me that they look forward to my post everyday. Who knows if they’re mocking me??? E consign them. Basically we have…

Summer in Ireland

When I open my blinds every morning, I always check the rose petals if they’ve bloomed. For me, it kind of represented a new change that’s coming. After that, I open my windows to feel warmth of the summer sun. The blazing of the blue sky and the golden sun meant it was time to get picture ready. I’ve never liked winter. It felt like all through the year was cold. Moving to a new country meant I had to…

The best part of me

I was very curious growing up. I wanted to know everything. I wanted to be part of good conversations with great minds, so I started reading. When I was seven, I tore pages from my notebook to write a storybook. I had several of them. My imaginations were so wild. In primary school I had Enid Blyton’s collection and I read all the LadyBird books in the school library. Newspapers were my next best thing when I entered junior school.…

The Best Ever

Falling in love was something that was certain for us. Regardless of how things turned out, I am glad we remained friends. We’ve known each other long enough to let our silence do the talking. There was a time I hung on to every word you said, they were valuable like gold and that hasn’t changed. When life became tough for me and I became unstable, you kept me afloat so I won’t drown with my problems. We have a…

Hello 25!

Happy Birthday to me. It was not long ago I made a bucket list of things to do before I turn 25. I slept and woke up and then boom: “Happy Birthday Anie baby, you’re getting old.” Whettttt!!! I don’t want to get old 😩. Growing up isn’t as fun as I want it to be. A lot of responsibilities and expectations. I can remember my 13th birthday vividly. Time kept ticking with happy New Year. I’m getting really worried…
