JOLENE

“Some women are, beautiful. Hair like a thick forest of ethereal grasses. Skin glistening like Aphrodite herself created the serum from her own blood. Dipped in honey, buffed to perfection. A smile that can turn a dark day to rainbows and sunshine so very fast. She directs her spreading cheekbones your way and you automatically…

Take Good Care of Your Grief

There’s really no way to deal with grief. There’s no way you cut it or slice it, it’ll hurt. There’s no denial or defence mechanism to ever prepare you of someone you know and love is gone. Or your favourite celebrity. There’s no faith or godliness that can make it go away. There’s no godlessness…

BARE: LIFE AS A DEPENDANT.

Inviting people to view my life without giving them a say in it, is the one skill that makes me know I was made for fame haha. I wrote this and wasn’t sure if I should publish, it felt personal. But I am starting a series among others. BARE is a very personal one. Things…

The Men-Are-Scum Racket

Some men damage women, it can be her father with daddy issues, it can start at any age with men groping when no one is looking. It can be full blown rape, almost rape, and many other forms of sexual harassment. They land a blow on her psyche, killing her self esteem and confidence in…

Happy 60th Birthday, My Abimomajeun

I have been dreaming of your 60th birthday for like the last 7 years. As at your 50th, 10 years ago, I think it’s accurate to say I didn’t have any control over my life so I managed my expectations. Once I got a job and started making money I swore to throw you the…

Random Yarns : Cooking

So while on some few beers over the weekend, my friends and I started a conversation. I was the proponent of most of the theories, therefore I was on fire (a bit too much fire), as I was laying out my point bam! Bam! Bam! If you ever hang out with me, you’ll know I…

Movement is Movement

It’s simple logic really. Movement isn’t always forward. It isn’t backwards either. Movement is simply, staying, sane It is working hard. It could be working hard on laughing. Or having fun. Or living life. It could be working hard on IG page. But you’re moving. It could be sideways It could be parallel. But you’re…

Mindful Eating for Better Health

Karibu! How are you doing today and hope you’re staying covid-19 free? I know it’s hard but we all will be alright, eventually. I plan on doing a short series on health and food but it may be pointless if I first don’t tell you why you need to pay more attention to your eating….

Look to the Lighthouse

Dear Friend, I won’t ask how you are, I know how. It’s not sunshines and rainbows right now. This morning I had a good cry. It wasn’t the heaving, shoulder shaking one. It was a quiet stream that gently caressed my face. Please realize, nothing is fine. Nothing is fine for anyone right now. All…

Maybe Get a Housemate!

Do you have an extra room in your apartment? Are you looking to save some money on accommodation this year? Do you want to NOT be alone during this pandemic? Is moving back in with your parents an impossibility? It’s time to update your social media with “Housemate wanted”. You might not be able to…

The Financially Responsible Adult.

No matter what end of the spectrum you find yourself; borderline elite, comfortable middle-class, borderline middle-class, hustler middle-class, any small breeze, and you will join the 70% chilling by the poverty line. At the risk of sounding like Randy (see previous post for reference), I’ll say, spend as least as possible. It’s not your job…

Nigeria, Paradox of Thrift, and Covid-19, 2020

Huge fan of South Park over here. Spoiler alert, this is not a comical, or slightly funny post, at all. So there was an episode about the economy crashing. Randy Marsh believed everyone shouldn’t spend money, they should wear bed-sheets as clothes, and ride horses as transportation as this is what will save the economy….
