Over a cup of jasmine is 1 🎉🎊🎈🎂

First of all i would like to say thank you to all the people who have supported me in my one year blogging journey , my few but special and encouraging readers and to wordpress as well for providing me with a platform to connect with so many people with the same interests as me including writing, poetry and blogging, so far my journey has been a very interesting one and i am very pleased that I’ve been able to hold on to over a cup of jasmine despite my very stressful schedule at school.

I would like to especially thank lavanya from lavanya’s blog and sweet dreams, and to all my wonderful readers, a sincere thank you to Aisha Yahya and Sameera hamza.

Deja vu or what?  I don’t know but staying alone makes you over think sometimes and make assumptions, perhaps even performing the maths.
It happens also that you are surrounded by people yet you are still alone, maybe I am too deep, I admit I am not superficial on the surface understanding ish of situations, but I always find something to think of……. maybe my life.
Reflections can be good but when you replay one single episode over and over to identify every little detail, you either find faults in yourself or other people.
Most likely yourself not other’s especially if you suffer from low esteem and episodes of depression.
You constantly try to assume, maybe too much International baccalaureate (IB) science textbooks lead to such mathematics of every scenario and the possible outcomes to a situation.
To each his own, reflective or refractive of each scenario in life, just a piece of my heart. ♥
Bye!
I would like to dedicate this post to Aisha💗 My friend who encouraged me to keep my blog despite University study

A move back home

A move back home

The sun blessed me the moment I dropped from the airport
Have I talked about the mosquitoes? lord knows there are mosquitoes in Jakarta and their bite is very stingy, yet the one’s in Nigeria are malaria causing, Lord save this soul of mine from malaria.
So far so good I kind of am okay here, adjusting maybe but I think I am doing well for now, I have not been blogging due to my lack of Internet connection, but as of now I finally have Internet which is why of course….
Hello Nigeria!

Monotonous life

You still brush your teeth every morning and night,  I still shower everyday in the same bathroom, eat food with same staples yet different spices or cooking methods, so I’ve decided to pack up and leave…………“lol” i used to hate this word and a poem about it will most likely be up around next week inshAllah and my adventures at cake decorating and driving lessons with my unpaid teacher AYA.
