Gems From My Corporate Law Lecturer

Wiw. It’s the final day of my second term in the Nigerian Law School! I woke up this morning smiling – legit. Too much has happened since January and it’s unbelievable that I’m still in one piece. I have learned sooo much in the past four months and from so many people. And I know it sounds cliché, but I am truly honored to have been posted to Yola Campus.

My Condolences

‘We shall do well to offer our condolences to her after the service’ the pastor said. I was still recovering from the news that Mrs. Dupe lost her 9 year old son. It was very hard to imagine that a little body filled with so much vigor and energy could be snuffed out by death. Why then was I still alive? Why had I lived all these years on earth

Life vs. Your Life

There’s life. And the there’s your life. Life would always want to dictate to your life on how it should be lived. It’ll send pain. Pain likes to be felt; caressed like a prostitute and petted like a baby. But your life must look pain in its eyes and say, ‘Thanks, but I’ll keep my hands to myself’ Then, life would send Pride. Pride likes to puff up; like the

No Bucks Fitness Advice

<insert long biological and medical facts on why it’s important to engage in exercise> I’m not too much of an exercise fan; God knows. I started jogging daily for about 5 minutes and during my final laps, I always feel like my actual laps are going to tear to shreds on the tarred road.

In Front Of Your In-Laws

Since I got engaged, my mother has become even funnier. Before now, the whole family admitted that she could not get any funnier, but this engagement has been the stone upon which she has honed her funny skills. For one, she relates everything I do to my in-laws and why she does that, I have not the foggiest idea. One time, we were both in her room. I was painting her

People Are First People

It’s easy to go through life feeling entitled. This is majorly because you feel other feel for you the way you feel for yourself. And that’s not really a terrible thing. It’s almost the default thing to do in fact; to think people would treat you the way that you would treat yourself. But the truth is that you’ll be rudely shocked to experience quite the opposite; and it is

Resuming Slavehood

I love my grandmother so much and I know not many people say this but I want to be like my grandmother.  When I wish to look at a human being who is epitome of love, I look at her. You know how everyone says, ‘I want to impact lives of people in the world’ but in their everyday lives, they are so mean and impatient? That’s not how my

What I Love

‘Do what you love‘ is an advice that is becoming so popular I can’t even remember what the advice before it was. ‘Do what makes money?’  ‘Do what your parents say?’  ‘Do what you studied?’ ‘Do Law/Engineering/Medicine?’  They all just  so out of place and absurd. Anyway, for a long time now I’ve been thinking of what I’d love to do with my life. I think of the things that

He Will Cheat?

Prompt: Feb 26 Happily ever after ‘And they lived happily ever after.’ Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?   The week before I was to get married, I got a visit from my grandmother and my aunty. They sat across me in the living room of my father’s house and asked

Prompt: Feb 24 Buffalo nickel Dig through your couch cushions, your purse or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you fine. What were you doing that year?   2004.
