When life threw me back into the singles club, the second question I asked myself was, “Under ideal conditions, what kind of man would I like to be with?” The first was “Am I ever really going to date again because it seems I’ve run out of love to give?” Anyways, I launched my mental … Continue reading The Anatomy of a Single Girl
“I’m leaving you for a month. I have some business to attend to in the east.” I could feel the frown begin to set in my face. We were yet to be away from each other for more than two days at a time and I had gotten so accustomed to his presence. Maybe I … Continue reading The Shallow End – Part 2
Dating apps are the worst inventions ever and I’ve never cared for them. But on this fateful Friday evening, the universe seemed to have other plans in store for me. I was tired of reading the endless research journals splayed before me. They were slowly beginning to morph into what looked like ancient hieroglyphics and … Continue reading The Shallow End
There is this popular belief that people who speak less and listen more are usually wiser. I wish I could attribute my being quiet to being a blue-eyed, silver-haired sage. Unfortunately, it's not so. You see, what I am is a child who has a fear of speaking. Contrary to what I've made myself believe, … Continue reading My Struggles With Selective Mutism
First of all, let me start by saying it is suuuch a good time to be alive. A time where voices are rising above the status quo, where people are no longer living the because-that’s-how-it-has-been-done life.

Didn't you go to Unilag." I laughed and told her I didn't go out much when I was in school. "So how … Continue reading Have I Been Dating Wrong?
... Leave their messages on read. All those ‘hey, big head’ on the night of Feb 13 are from the pit of hell. Flee!
"I'm walking away..." *in Craig David's voice* Hello! My name is Yemi, your favorite four-eyed wonder. In Sam Smith's words, "I'm way too good at goodbyes". However, fret not. Goodbyes are not always the end but first, let's take a walk back in time The Genesis I never intended to start a blog. Like, never. … Continue reading And this is Goodbye
I remember when the first wave of (millennial) feminism hit the shores of Nigeria. A lot of (misguided) women not really having a full grasp of what its was about saw it as an anti-men propaganda. It was like a platform for which women came to express their grievances. A free-for-all. Make-it-rain. Champagne shower. Whatever … Continue reading Me and My Big Mouth
I chopped the runner beans into tiny bits as I hummed along to James Arthur's 'Say you won't let go." Today was a special day and here I was sweating away, preparing my favorite dish; pasta with spicy curry and chicken sauce. The aroma of pasta boiling on the cooker mixed intricately with that of … Continue reading KATE
