This may be part post, part rant.
My friend and I watched a film a few weeks ago. The female character was made to feel like she was not as intelligent as everyone else and was not good enough. My friend said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” and it has stuck with me ever since. I wasn’t aware it was from Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote. Everyone should remember this especially when people have things to say. I am not saying that I don’t talk myself. I’m human. No matter what you do someone will have something to say. The opinion that matters should be your own. Continue reading
I never thought I spoke through my nose until I came back to Nigeria. I’ve had people telling me that I speak and it sounds like “wih wih wih”. The funniest was on a Sunday. I went to a church service on the law school campus and I was asked to read a bible passage. Afterwards the pastor said that I read too fast and I was talking through my nose. Lol! Speaking through the nose for me = different intonation. Either that or I do actually speak through my nose.
I think there are four types of people who “speak through Continue reading

Who else looked at the picture and spent two minutes pronouncing gullible to see how it sounds like oranges? I did.
I have been postponing this post for some time now so here goes. Sir Farouk, this is for you.
Nigerians are very inventive people. I love the Nigerian trait of hustling and working. Rarely will you see a Nigerian just sitting down and doing nothing especially when they don’t have much. They go out and make their money. The issue of concern is the means by which they go on their “pursuit of money”. Continue reading
I am on my way to Bwari as I am writing this. I miss home already but what can I do?
I prefer to travel within Nigeria by road. I have no idea why. It’s nothing to do with the stories of plane crashes or anything, I just prefer it. I’ve only been on two flights within Nigeria. The first, when my ticket from London was booked for the wrong state and I had to make my way to the correct one. The second, when I was travelled last June for law school and that was with Arik Airline which you can read about here and here. Had no problems with them at all. I enjoyed my flight to Abuja from Lagos more than my flight from London to Lagos. Continue reading

I know this is past its due date but better late than never! We had our law dinner around the beginning of December. A lot of people were excited about it. Girls were getting their hair done hours before and some had bought special outfits for it. I wasn’t so hyped about it but it ended up being a good experience. What made it better was I was sitting with my friends.
“I don’t want a lot for a lot for Christmas,
there is just one thing I need, I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree, I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know, Make my wish come trruuuuueeee! Baby, all I want for Christmas…. are gifts!” Mariah Carey has met her match! Lol!
Another Christmas is about to come and go. It’s the time to listen to all those christmas songs we love like ‘All I want for Christmas is you!’ By Mariah Carey on repeat! I wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope you all will be surrounded by loved ones, turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, minced pies, chocolate and all that good stuff. Continue reading
