From shutterbug to lovebug

I had used privilege to get into the hall. My 'tutor' was one of the commissioned photographers at Stand Up Nigeria. All I wanted to do was go watch comedians in real life for free.

1020 Pieces and the missing peace

On July 20, I got an order for a customized jigsaw puzzle from a client.

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?

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
