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.
The need for self-control made me do it. The first time I heard social media fast, it didn’t seem like a thing to me. Just as you might be wondering what this means. I never thought I would have a need for a social media fast. Alas, that day came and I needed to choose between my mental wellness and social media. One thing I noticed was that the need didn’t arise in a day, it was a result of accumulated stress and pressure.
Unknowingly, things that seem normal and basic are taking charge of our lives. A day to day activity, if not checked, can become an addiction. You wouldn’t even know. Things that are necessary will then begin to suffer because other things are eating up your time.
I decided to share with you the reasons why I started blogging because I’ve been asked this question countless times. It’s officially one month since I started blogging. It’s amazing to know that I have clicked on the publish icon 20 times. Wondering what kept me motivated to have written 20 blog posts in a month? While some people guessed that it’s because of money, some have actually guessed so many other reasons. To clear the air, I’ll share with you the reasons why I started blogging.
Should I say I was stupid when I was in secondary school or should I say I had the best time of my life. Secondary school was so full of memories that I can’t dare forget. I guess you probably feel the same way.
Junior school was not all that fun because of wicked seniors that their mission in life was to frustrate innocent juniors like me (I was not actually innocent, I was war, I was fight, I was indaboski). Lmao But speak of senior secondary, it was a hit back to back.
How I got my first job after graduation is far from usual and that’s why I want to share it with you. Much more than the story, I’ll like you to pick lessons from this event. Call it luck or whatever, all I know is that I made the move.
Here’s the story of how I got my first job
On this fateful day, a flyer was sent to a page that I belonged to, calling for volunteers. As at that time, I was less busy, so volunteering was a thing for me (it’s still a thing for me). It’s always nice to be able to help a just cause and also gain experience while doing so. I opened the picture and I decided to apply to be a volunteer for the event. Since I was so eager to fill the application form, I guess I didn’t fill it well. I didn’t get any feedback, so I reached out to the lady that sent the flyer.
I didn’t think a day would come where I would talk about the most embarrassing moment in my life but here we are. It’s still really fresh in my memory. Ahhh the prayer that ‘God no go shame us’ would have come in handy but they had not started the trend then. On this fateful day, esu gbo mi mu (devil collected water to drink) Lmao.
I thought it would be interesting to share with you what a typical day in my life during this lockdown looks like. It’s not like I do something fancy though. Maybe I’m even here to console people who feel like they are not sticking to their usual routine. I’ also far from mine.
You would expect that I have a morning, day, and night routine right! Sorry to disappoint you, we lost a sense of time in my house since this lockdown began. Lmao
My Instagram account got hacked! It happened like a film trick!
I would have said hello there but this is not a sweet story at all.
I’m still here wondering why it had to be me this will happen to. I mean, who did I offend? How many followers do I even have? I’m not even popular on the streets of Instagram. I kept on thinking a whole lot of stuff in my head. I didn’t even want to believe at first until my username changed, my bio was deleted and then the person started deleting my pictures. At that point, I knew that ‘nkan ti se mi’ (something had happened to me). Lol
Wondering how I spent my 25th birthday? I’m glad to announce to you that corona got nothing on me! Hehehe
You should grab a seat because it’s going to be a long gist.
I won’t be wrong if I say my birthday this year is still the best. The reason is that I celebrated my birthday at home with all the members of my nuclear family present and because you showed me love. Much more because I get to finally launch my blog.
It’s my 25th birthday! Yaaayyyy!!
I’m literally dancing as I type this because my heart is so full of joy. What exactly is so exciting about being 25, you’ll ask? I actually might not know. All I know is that my own experience is different from every other 25 years old out there and mine is definitely thrilling.
