How Wokeness is Ruining Us

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. A time where Nigerian youths are finally coming into the conscious awareness that they can actually speak (and think) … Continue reading How Wokeness is Ruining Us

Have I Been Dating Wrong?

I was riding with an older (non biological) sister one morning when she asked if I knew where we were. I looked around and answered in the negative. She went, "Ahn, ahn? Yemi! 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?

And this is Goodbye

"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

Me and My Big Mouth

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

KATE

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

The Love Doctor

With a flick of the switch, light flooded the house as I dropped my purse and kicked off my shoes by the coffee table. Damn stilettos. My feet hurt from walking in them for a long time. But the physical pain I felt was nothing compared to the emotional pain I was feeling from Evans … Continue reading The Love Doctor

Before I Die…

From the moment we had our first cry to the moment we'd take our last breath, everything that transpires in between that dash is sort of a time-filler. While we only get to do this life once (except you decide to reincarnate as a tree) and no one knows just how much time has been … Continue reading Before I Die…

My Tinderella Experience

I was fresh out of a major heartbreak, (well, more like six months out) and was in total denial of how much I was crashing on the inside. The only coping mechanism I could come up with was to look for some sort of distraction. Something to take my mind off the thoughts and also … Continue reading My Tinderella Experience

The Anniversary Bash

Yaaaaay! So, my church celebrated her 9th year anniversary on Thursday (10/10) and today we had our celebratory worker's bash. It was themed Denim Fever. I don't have any denim wear, neither do I have fever so I wore what I had. Shrugs. (I made my skirt by the way *wide grin*) Let me not … Continue reading The Anniversary Bash
