The Boat That Made Me Dream Again

So, (they say I should stop starting my sentences with so. But, so) I’m sitting on my bed in the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus and my roommate shrieks and says ‘Boro!

I was like an athlete who had done so well through the course of the race, and then just at the end, I flopped on the ground and refused to get up. I may have

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

Why Do We Do That?

I woke up on Tuesday morning and I wondered what was going on. I had had the same dream for two days now and I was willing not to be bothered.  Why? Because I didn’t quite think it would come to pass. It could never come to pass, I told myself. The people involved in the dream are not like that in real life.  But on Wednesday morning, I woke

Boiling Water 

My mom’s suspicions about me got lit yesterday. Before now, she used to treat me like someone who was always up to something evil or who had done something evil, but she never really had a concrete reason or telltale to pin her suspicions on. My inability to look people in their eyes only added to her suspicions. I do not know why she has these suspicions neither do I

Peradventure you storm into a room, and you find yourself among a crowd of people all standing and looking up towards a stage and you hear names of the greatest people on earth being called out, listen attentively. Listen because if the names on the list run out and you still haven’t heard my name, then it’s the wrong list. If all the people who have impacted lives on earth

Dear Genie

Prompt:  Feb 3 Writing Room A genie has granted your wish to build your perfect space for reading and writing writing. What’s it like? Well, hi there Genie.  First, I would like to give a shoutout to this Genie of mine. You sound like a human being and not a mystical creature (partly because I do not believe in Genies).

My Boyfriend is…

Uche always makes me look like a liar. Every time someone talks about a nice guy, I automatically say, ‘Oh yeah, my boyfriend is also like that’. And Uche never, ever, fails to say, ‘Nope, you don’t have one’. It’s kind of frustrating because other people think I’m delusional. So, I have decided to write about my boyfriend, so she’ll would know i’m not kidding.  Uche, enjoy!   If I
