Who Missed Me?

Hey guys, who missed me?

I know I missed me.

I’ve been away for nearly two weeks so I’ll do a quick recap of what I’ve been up to.

In no particular order:

SCHOOL

This university is slowly running me mad, I’ve been forgetting a lot of things of late. I’ve had situations where I forget that I’m supposed to submit an assignment which I never remember having. Thank God for good friends like KingLawal who doesn’t fail to put me on track every time I derail.

READING AND RESEARCHING ON NIGERIA’S MOST NOTORIOUS CRIMINALS

I suddenly developed keen interest in wanting to know the pioneers of deadly crimes in Nigeria. My discoveries shocked me and I decided that I wasn’t going to read them alone. I started an insta series about them. The stories are sitting pretty in my highlights. All my stories about those criminals are 100% sourced from the right sources.

STAYING BEAUTIFUL

If you’ve been up to date, you would notice that I’ve all of a sudden found a new hobby – matching my hair with my clothes. I didn’t realize how interesting this was until YusufShotme.

If you’ve seen this picture making rounds on the internet, you’re one out of many and we have Yusuf to thank for this magic. I almost look non-Nigerian here. All that’s left is for me to actually leave this country.

READING AFRICAN CONTEMPORARIES

You wouldn’t understand how important this is until you try to write and you’ve lost touch of your African roots in writing because you’ve been inconsistent with your reading. This has been me, I had to seek for help and look for a lot of books by Legendary writers. I started with Lola Shoneyin’s Secret lives of Baba Segi’s wives. It was my second time, reading it but I still was as mesmerized as I was during my first time.

I have an half full library of books I want to read, I just really need to find the time to.

My okadabooks still stands gallantly. I’ve read almost all the books there anyway.

MISSING MY PERIOD

Sometime last week, I died.

I woke up knowing that I was going to have the worst three days of my life because I didn’t wake up naturally.

The pain that enveloped me in my sleep had me considering whether or not I still wanted to be a girl.

By 12pm that afternoon, I laid in bed, waiting for my departure from this earth.

The last time I felt such pain in such situation was in 2016, while I was in year 1.

It was also the day I did my first episode on Nigerian criminals, with Godogodo as the center of attraction.

I threw up all my intestines while writing that story but of course, the show had to go on.

I do not want my period again.

Of course I did not miss it, I just wanted to use that subject.

My insta highlights still itches for your views.

LEARNING NEW STUFF AND MEETING NEW PEOPLE

You know that point in your life when you want a lot of things done but you’re too broke to pay for them so you resort to ‘doing it yourself’? Yup!! I got to that point in my life.

Nobody told me twice, I started downloading apps and teaching myself things that I would be needing for me, myself and I. Networking also became an option for me when I realized that I’m not enough for me. I made a couple of new friends, had a couple of new subscribers. I’m still not where I want to be.

PANICKING

I might have been putting up this face of total control but to be honest I’m dying inside.

Why?

I realize that in a few weeks, I’ll be turning twenty and I feel underachieved.

@_horlar shot this

All these smile, na facade. I honestly feel like I grew up too fast, I didn’t even get the chance to be nineteen completely and twenty is already running after me. I love the idea of birthdays but I definitely do not fancy the idea of turning a year older.

As much as I’ll be claiming to be 17 again this year, I just really want to know what to do before I turn 20.

My birthday is still in May. May 1st to be precise.

I need a list of things to do before 20.

Kindly use the comment section, thank youโค๏ธ

Oh, and my body doesn’t reject gifts o, I’m in the mood to start collecting them in advance.

    • I have a short attention span when I’m reading my school books too so I can’t advice you in that aspect. Turn up is what I’m not sure of o and no, I’m not hooking up with a total stranger. STD’s and mouth diseases are no strangers to man

  3. Really love this. Funny, honest and intelligently crafted. We love your crime instastories o, cramps shouldn’t get in the way๐Ÿ˜‚โค.

  4. That feeling of underachievement sha…very true but you just have to remind your self that not all things according to our plan produce a perfect plan

  5. 20 Already? Wawu!

    You’re doing great dear. Underachieved? I don’t think so. I think you are right on time. Can you do much more? Yes! You’ll do and be so much more – that much I know ’cause you keep pushing to be better. I’m a firm believer in who you are becoming; I’ve been since that first meeting some years ago at Ogudu.

    And oh, your hips are finally peeking.

    OK bye.

    • Busayo ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ if I list the names of people that consistently believe in me, you’ll be in top 3. Thank you so much for your kind words โค๏ธ

  6. Oh Sister!!. You see what I mean when I say you’re getting old.. Like legit Old.

    Great stuff tho.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ.. I think I missed one of the criminal series..

    • Sister loveโค๏ธ I’m really getting old o. Before we know now, I’ll be 25.

      I saved all the criminal series on my highlights. I should be doing Anini today or tomorrow

  7. Wow, i just got to your page and your blog and Iโ€™m already very interested in seeing more. Talking about feeling underachieved, I wouldnโ€™t say I know best cause Iโ€™m just 17 but I would say everything comes at itโ€™s own time. You already started a blog and thatโ€™s good, thatโ€™s an achievement you can boast about! Things will get better, later on in life. Just keep it up!

    • Your comment melted the core of my very being. Thank you so much. I really appreciate thisโค๏ธ thank you for finding me. Please spread the word

  8. Lovely Piece as usual.
    You using the word Underachieved, is a No No.
    You really achieving great stuffs.
    Just keep doing you. You real good.

    Wanna ask how can someone go back to like age 15 or 16. And then just enjoy life better. Man’s getting old. Please put me on if you got a solution.

    Am using the name”Young” attached to my real name “Valiant”, so as to give myself hope that I am young and will always be. But it seems not to be working the way I want.

    “I almost look non-Nigerian here. All thatโ€™s left is for me to actually leave this country.” ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Make plans let’s do real quick and leave oh. Am always set.

    Lovely write up dear ๐Ÿ‘

  9. Staying beautiful… cool. Underachieved…Nah. I think you’re doing great. All you need to whenever you feel that way is try and look back at where you were yesterday and where you are now. That should be your drive, getting better than what you are.
    All the same, I feel inspired by what you’ve done and is still doing. Great job yellow abi golden hair girl. Doan get money, you look like Bill Gates, Dangote and Mark all put together.

  10. My first time reading an article up here and honestly I love it. It’s funny, beautiful, honest there’s just something about the way you write that makes me keen on wanting to read the next line and on and on. Keep this up please. I’ll block you one day at school and probably tell you this in person.

  11. Awww, you’ve been my crush ever since I met you at the event in unilorin. You write so beautifully .ahh you’re too fine this geh. You make me want to color my hair too.

    Coman marry me na ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŒน
