LETTER TO 16 YR OLD ME

Dear Ify,

Yes, stop looking around, I am actually talking to you. Yes you! not the other one. I won’t ask how you are because I already know. You are confused, tired, and you still don’t believe you are good enough to even read this letter. *sigh*

Where do I start from? Okay let me start by saying that you are getting it all wrong. People don’t have to like you for you to be happy and dressing up in skinny jeans and walking like a guy won’t attract the attention you feel you need.

Walking around like you have all the problems in the world doesn’t make you special. Stop watching those movies that make you believe that nobody cares about you. Stop being sad!

Stop struggling to leave your house because when there is no peace at home you can’t be at peace with yourself. Don’t try to make friends when you are not even friends with yourself. Also stop biting your nails it’s a bad habit I’m trying to stop so it would help if you take the load off and stop it for me. 😆

You are a beautiful and awesome person even Hope said so too.(Hope is my friend and you would meet her in a few months so don’t screw it up!)  Don’t let these negative comments get to you. Please love yourself and don’t let others do it for you. Trust me you would end up hurt by the person who would pretend to care for you when others don’t. 😟

There are those friends that constantly make you do what you don’t want to do 😠, Stay away from them before it gets too late. 

You are human and you matter. This means that you have the right to cry, smile, be happy or be sad it’s all your choice, don’t let others make this choice for you. 

OH! I have so much to say to you but I hope you got the whole message. I’ll leave you for now. I love you so much Ify and I hope you get to see how awesome you are! 😚😚

Yours truly,

You.

SHE DOESN’T ACTUALLY EXIST

She doesn’t actually exist. That woman, you know her nau. You don’t? Let me tell you a story. 

I was at a small buka waiting for the lady popularly known as nwanyi abacha by her customers to serve me the half plate of rice and stew I ordered some fifteen minutes ago. While I was waiting, a group of three guys came in and ordered for their own food as well. 

While we all waited and silently cursed the slow service in nwanyi abacha’s shop, a very voluptuous Kim Kardashian – ish girl passed by the shop. Trust boys nau, they waited until she was out of sight before they started talking about how she was their dream girl. Continue reading

THE BORING SUMMER OF ’08

​The long vacation period of 2008 was a rather boring one. That year we didn’t attend summer lessons and we had seen all the anime and cartoons we had at home. All the interesting series on Disney were gradually being removed from the channel so even cable wasn’t interesting anymore. So, we begged mummy to get us a Play Station 2. She didn’t even know what it was at the time but she had to get it to pacify us. 

I remember the day my big cousin brought it back home. He had with him three games: Need for speed Hot Porsuit, Tom and Jerry Arcade and one Marvel game I can’t remember. Continue reading
