Anger, that’s what makes us miss out on the fun things in life. This is definitely one I’m so guilty of to be sincere. People at some point get annoying or maybe you think they get annoying. 46 percent of the time I get annoyed or angry by someone, and I take time to look back and analyse the scenario, I
find myself at much as at fault as the other person. So why did I get angry in the first place? Is it the bottled up emotions, I had for this person or was I just the mood to snap like a twig and get angry? Frankly, I don’t have an idea on this one. The most hilarious aspect of anger is when I feel it towards a non-significant persona to my life, like a random guy at a banks’ atm queue or a random lady at a supermarket. Question is,” is there more to anger than just the offense committed by the party/ies involved? Is there a chance that probably we get angry at someone because they have what we so crave for but can’t have, like a great hairline, or an expensive shoe, or a very wonderful skin etc. Do we get angry at some people because we’re jealous or are all annoying people stupid?
  Quick fact though; annoyance can’t get any prettier than a baboons’ ass plus you get to stress yourself even to one undeserving.Adding Stress to that of work and school everyday, you do the maths on your lifespan.

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour 2

I don’t care for any other opinions on the themes of Chimamanda Adichie's Americanah. For me, true love made up one of the predominant themes. A theme I hoped and begged the universe to grant me.
The novel’s heroine, Ifemelu would begin an intriguing affaire with her beau Obi from Secondary School.
They’d go on dating through a few years in University before Ifemelu would leave for the U.S. to get her first higher degree.
As much as I have never researched this, I strongly believed Chimamanda was mirroring a part of her own life’s story in Americanah.

First, Adichie had studied Pharmacy for a year and a half at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka before leaving for the US to get a first degree.
I fed on this keen theory of mine, convincing myself it was thoroughly true and then hoped and prayed for a tailored pattern of romance for myself.
This tailoring of another’s narrative is just the way some Nigerians meet a trusted tailor with a particular design they’d want to be …


my eyes are
brilliant: a firework of events.
my thoughts are
weakened; how come it took
this long to realize?

the imperfect affair.
my life was

some lies are

my eyes are
not for seeing,
but feeling,
all these other lives

or touch,
for the better part of
this dreadful
