All I have left is hope

Independence day used to be a day of celebration.Now, it’s just a day of questions, anger and criticisms. A lot of Nigerians decided to trend #FoolAt60 on Twitter some days ago.

Love is Blind

Twitter folks be wilding recently and sometimes, I laugh and wonder at the vast diversity in people’s perspectives and opinions. A huge percentage of what I put on this blog is my own opinion.

What’s right with it?

This is probably going to give you a sneak peek of the funny and weird things that go on in my mind. Some months ago, I posted a picture on my WhatsApp status.

Church Attitude

NEGATIVES BOLD, POSITIVES FAINT

That’s how I looked at myself. I could point out a lot of flaws in 1 minute, but struggle to tell you something good about myself. This little act tampered with my self esteem while growing up. So yes, you’d go through my blog and see how much I talk about loving yourself despite your flaws. I want you to […]

ANTI-STEREOTYPICAL —Youthfulness

“Youthfulness”; what comes to your mind when you hear this? To many, it’s a time of enthusiasm or a time to “enjoy your life”. A lot of problems we have with the youth today is that majority of us depend on stereotypes to live. If we change our mindsets, we would definitely change a lot of things positively. For better […]

ANTI-STEREOTYPICAL — Breaking away from societal mind control

“I am anti-stereotypical”. A lot of people have heard me say this and most times, I say it when referring to societal norm. I live mostly by personal convictions and I really have a problem with just doing things because “it is a norm”. What if it isn’t right? What if it doesn’t sit well with me? What if it […]

Storms will come

The past 3 days haven’t really been ‘bright’ days for me. I just lost someone and it tore me apart in very unexpected ways. It made me think about how many people I’ve lost between late last year and this year. They’re even more this year. Each time I’m faced with situations like this, it makes me think about the […]
