Time really does fly because I’m not sure I can explain how it is September already. It makes sense now what I found during one of my wanderings on Instagram. I found a quote that says time is all that we have and don’t have and I think I understand better. I could swear I had enough time to get things done since I was clear on what I wanted to do this year early enough. But here I am, caught between consoling myself with the ‘there’s still time’ mantra and beating myself up because I know I’ve wasted a lot of time doing nothing.
Putting my life bits into words has become difficult because I’ve been spending more time in my head. It is super comfortable to be up there, I mean, you don’t get to face anything at all. Not your fears, not the reality, not your regrets, neither do you have to face the truth since it’s blank up there. But I’ve spent too much time there that it got boring. So, I decided to revisit the beginning which would pass for the past, and what I saw scared me, in a good way though.
Speaking of wrong choices and consequences, contrary to what I had planned for myself, I was caught in the middle and it felt like life was playing snooker with me. The feeling of wanting to show up but needing to disappear badly became a default feeling. The moment it looked like I was beginning to have some stability, something would hit me and I’ll be back just where I was. These past months, I’m talking about June, July has been a sweet yet rocky one for me but ain’t no dwelling on the rocky. We stay focused.
Hello twenty-six, it is a pleasure meeting you!
It is 11:55 pm and I have decided to write this post since sleep is here playing hide and seek with me. So many emotions are running through my mind. I mean, just like that a baby girl is twenty-six. I guess you can only be young forever by heart. You know what’s funny is that I never looked forward to this day as much as I’ve looked forward to my previous birthdays but still, this is the calmest I’ve been about my birthdays in recent times. I really do not know if it’s a good feeling or could it be old age, lol.
Feels good to finally be saying hello April. I mean, it’s my birth month and for the first time in a short while, I’m excited about my birthday. I’m actually screaming in my head right now, if it was not late yet, I would actually be shouting and dancing, lol. Before I get carried away with excitement, Happy New Month to you. I hope you can perceive it too because April smells like success on this end.
It’s 3:32 am and the thought that I should have published this blog post yesterday is keeping me awake. I mean, I can hear my brain screaming Hello March to my face. The consolation is, nobody sent me really, I chose to be a blogger. That said, Happy New Month to you. Asides from the fact that a lot of people close to my heart will be celebrating their birthdays this month, I’m much more excited for the results this month will bring.
It’s past 1 in the midnight as I type this and if I would be sincere, somebody’s son should be the first on the list of random things I’m loving lately but that’s not the gist for today, lol. It’s been a while I put aside the aspire to acquire part of me to gist with you. If you know me, you’ll know I’m so keen on personal growth and development so much that work tends to take the best part of me. But we are breaking free today. So let’s gist.
The long-awaited Christmas gift ideas for him list is here.
Christmas is here again and if we ask 10 men if they are expecting gifts this season, I’m sure 8 out of 10 would say no. That’s why so many people are eager to read this post. I mean, God knows who started the rule that guys do not deserve, need or want gifts. Worse still, when some ladies now even broke free from the ‘don’t give guys gifts’ rule, we’ve not been able to do it rightly. From gifting singlets to boxers, cufflinks to ties, and some ‘not too nice’ gifts, it just does not seem easy for us to find that perfect gift.
Looking for Christmas gift ideas for her? You’ve come to the right place.
Christmas is here again guys and it’s the season to put smiles on people’s faces. If you don’t already have plans to get gifts for the special ‘hers’ in your life, then you are wrong. I understand that gift shopping could be hard and overwhelming but the smile you’ll be putting on their faces should be enough motivation. Or have you thought of just picking anything, wrapping and gifting them? No, don’t do it because I got you on the Christmas gift ideas for her.
Since we love to relax things a bit on Fridays, I thought we should play the never have I ever game here. What do you say? Even if you say no, we are playing the game and you will participate. Yes, it is by force o.
So I thought I would come up with something else for today but then I saw a post on Instagram that triggered this post. You see all these things that some people refer to as basic, some of us have never experienced them in our lives. There’s no shame at all in this, it was before that I was not proud to say them but now ehn, no shame o. Maybe my anon will even read this post and help me, lol.
If you did not have teachers that fall into any of the following categories, I’m not sure you went to school o, lmao. I mean, my friend and I talked about this at midnight and we legit were shouting ‘me too’ while laughing hard. Thank God it’s Friday, yaaayyyyyyy. I figured you guys love gist and it’s been a while we relived memories, so why not? Get your popcorn and wine, let’s go down the memory lane. Lol
I’ve gotten the question couple of times asking if I ever experience a creative block. Yes, I do, and it’s not always funny at all. Imagine trying to write but nothing is flowing. Worse still, you are actually writing but its just nonsense. I hate creative blocks. Wondering why I’m ranting to you?
The painful experience I’m referring to here is my tooth removal experience. I needed to establish this before you feel its another ‘not so good’ news you are about to read. Chill ehn, I figured you might need to take a break and laugh, hence this blog post.
May I begin by saying it again that all of you that told me tooth removal is not painful, my God will judge. Lol… you could have just let me prepare for the pain. I mean, I would not have embarrassed myself in front of those cute doctors by crying.
Am I a joke to this Ibadan Micra drivers? Just before I asked this question, I had to double-check with myself. This is the story of an innocent girl and a Micra driver, so brace yourself. It was not funny this day o because I was so embarrassed. I mean, after I’ve dressed up so decently and feeling myself, a Micra driver had the guts to insult me. I see it as an insult. E pain me, kai.
Let’s talk about how difficult it is for Nigerian parents to say sorry. We need to chastise whoever wrote that constitution. This lockdown has caused so many things to happen in many homes especially Nigerian families. If everybody could write their experiences, I’m sure most of us have many things in common. It’s okay for us the children to own up and say sorry but it’s never okay for them. Rather they’ll be asking questions like what would you eat, maybe cook for you or even bring back sins from God knows when years ago just to justify their actions.
