Holidays: Expectations Vs Reality

Why hello my lovelies, and Happy 2021!! May this year bring you a flat stomach, a fat wallet and an unending supply of face masks and sanitizers. Yes I know, it’s been a hot minute since I posted anything. I’ve been busy……or lazy……same thing, doesn’t matter. The important thing is that I’m back to disturb your lives again. Did you miss me? Of course you did (Who wouldn’t miss a gem like moi?). How did you find the Christmas holidays? I’m talking about those of us that were lucky enough to travel to different locations to get high on palm wine while the rest of you unfortunate souls were stuck in one place, getting more ashy by the day. Christmas has always been my favourite part of the year and my family & I spent the better part of it in our village. However, I had long suspected that things wouldn’t turn out the usual way I expected them to because of the pandemic (Thank you for that COVID). It pains me to say that I was proven right. Read on and see what I mean.

My Top 4 Worst Movies Of 2020

Each and everyone of us has that particular movie that we just love to hate. In my case, I’ve got four; all wonderfully bad, downright laughable and an utter waste of time (I still recommend you watch them though. They’re amusing at best). Because I’m such a wonderful person (No I’m not. I simply refuse to suffer through these alone. I wasted precious data and hours of my life that I will never get back), you all will be subjected to short rants outlining my qualms about each movie. Let’s begin.

StoryTime: To Date Or Not To Date

It’s that time of the week again. StoryTime! If you’re new to this segment, StoryTime is a part of my blog, posted every Friday, where I relate the random experiences, mine or otherwise, that may or may not be fictional. Your job is to decide which is which.

DISCLAIMER: CHARACTER NAMES AND PLACES MAY BE ALTERED FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS SEGMENT. ANY SIMITLARITIES BETWEEN SAID CHARACTERS AND REAL LIFE INDIVIDUALS ARE COMPLETELY COINCEDENTAL.

On today’s edition, we have a treat. A friend of mine read my last StoryTime, loved it & then tried to put my deductive skills to the test. She told me a story, a wonderful story, concerning a guy she once dated. I failed the test, so I guess I’m not the Sherlock Holmes I thought I was. I asked & received her permission to to use her tale for this week’s StoryTime. Let’s begin!

Types Of People You Met In Secondary School

You know sometimes a bit of nostalgia hits and I start reminiscing about the time I spent in secondary school. I could even go as far as saying that I miss the good old days. Things seemed simpler back then. But as with all things, reality hits and you also start to remember the weird experiences you had and the interesting people you met. Honestly, I don’t know how we all survived at all. So, I thought it would be nice to take a trip down memory lane to remind ourselves of the various characters we came across in secondary school.

6 Things People Who Attended NYSC Camp Can Relate To

To the people who haven’t been to Camp yet, you’re in for a treat. To those of you that missed it, you have my sympathy. To the rest of us that did go, make we reminisce for a bit.

1. THE TOILETS & BATHROOMS

What toilet? What bathroom? All of you who went to camp up in the North probably won’t be able to relate to this because I heard sanitation was on point there. For the rest of us? Utter rubbish. I don’t even think I ever came near 2 metres of the place. You see the bush? You will come to appreciate the bush. The bush is your friend. But the soldiers on duty will be so hell bent on making you catch some new, unchartered disease by forcing you to use filthy cubicles & toilets from the Dark Age. So you can only visit your loving bush patch at odd hours of the day to relieve & clean yourself. It’s a wonder we didn’t all get UTIs or bitten by snakes.

8 Strangest Phobias You Never Knew Existed

1. ARITHMOPHOBIA: FEAR OF NUMBERS

To all the people I know who did everything they could to avoid Math lessons back in school, I apologise. I didn’t know this was an actual condition. To be fair, I find the number ‘419’ frightening. For obvious reasons.

2. BIBLIOPHOBIA: FEAR OF BOOKS

Why do I feel like people just use this as an excuse not to study? But then I recall that John Wick once killed someone by dislocating their jaw & breaking their neck with a book, so this phobia is justified.
