…Or A Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions. Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie I know… I know, I’m letting on that I am in fact jobless, by doing such constant book reviews. Or am I jobless? Hmm…. I finished ‘Dear Ijeawele’, my first book in October within minutes. It’s a little book consisting of 53 pages and a rather flow-y message such that you can’t really pause to read later.
Ojuoluwatelemi, This is daddy. And this is a little awkward. I don’t know where to start so I’ll start from describing where I am and why I’m here. It’s a small room with just one window. It’s stuffy but that’s the least of my worries. There’s a really hungry looking policeman standing by the door. He is scratching his crotch too frequently and shaking his head. I think he must
Prompt: Feb 1 Flangiprop! Invent a definition for the word ‘flangiprop’, then use the word in post. How We Met: Fisayo We met on BBM (yes, I said it). It was the whole ‘fine girl on your dp, give me her pin’ thing. My friend, Nora, had messaged me and said, ‘Fish! I’m giving your pin to Mayowa o. He’s a fine boy’. I didn’t read the message until she
Dear Jude, This is the 365th letter I am writing to you. I have posted none of them because no one posts letters anymore. Okay, maybe they do – but not in this sense. Even if I wanted to post the letters to you, I do not have an address to send them to. I am writing these letters and keeping them in an Indomie box under my bed. Sometimes,
We saw today and we talked… for a long time. I laughed more than half the time and he kept smiling at me. 3:45am this morning, I woke up and saw a mail… from him. It said; ‘If someone asked me to say what I love the most about you, I would not think twice. I would smile and say ‘Her laughter. I love her laughter the most.’ And I
Sooo… you know how when you’re on Pinterest one thing always leads to another? I stumbled upon (no rivalry pun intended) a very short book on writer’s prompt written by Brian A. Klems & Zachary Petit. A writer’s prompt basically comprises of writing ideas for writers who suffer from writer’s block or those who just want to get creative. It’s 14 topics for two weeks. That is, one topic per
I am a literature teacher in a deceptively tacky school. I don’t care much for my job and trust me, my job doesn’t care much for me. The students I teach? Average. Okay English. Okay Diction. Okay willingness to learn. Just Okay everything. Sometimes, I think my average unprogressive life might actually be rubbing off on them. But hey, I’m not here to talk about my trials, tribulations, worries, sorrows,
I love him, he loves you, you love him, we love him. Please don’t feel guilty because of this letter. In fact, I must commend your stealthiness; You are not like those other mistresses who bombard their ‘masters’ phones with calls when he is in his real home; You are more experienced than that. With this letter, he’ll probably also deliver the news that we’re in a divorce process. I
