notes to my future self (10)


1. we cannot all be strong.
by remaining weak,
some await the strong
to prove their
strength
and that is brave enough
2. lose yourself to some moments.
there are the places your mind would dwell
when you withdraw into your shell
3. try to remember to smile
when in tears:
it's ridiculous so maybe
that'd ease the pain.
4. never for once lose
faith in God and yourself.
if you forget,
look back the bumpy road
you're now ahead of.
5.  when you get into the
"i hate my life" zone
call a friend,
have a nice conversation;
a laugh or two maybe.
6. never be ashamed of the things
that make you cry.
frailty is strength.
tears are it's sword
and your pen,the soldier.
7. bounce a ball once in a while,
life is like gravity.
it pulls you down but
you have the choice to be static or bounce.
philosophy 101.
8. never abandon your belief and values
even if you're the last person on earth with them
be true to your values,
the pricelessness of them
would create a new nation
through you.
9.  love, but never lose yourself.
in loving be wise,
do not forget who you are.
that, is loving sincerely,
presenting yourself
as you are
not the image you think your partner needs.
10. smile more often.
it is like the key to opening
so many unlocked doors.
it's hard iknow.
think of chocolates,
that'd do the trick.

Preparation When preparing to tour the town of Ado Awaye, these are a few things to take note of:

1. What to take
Because you’re touring, it is important to travel as light as possible. This means while packing, you should go for only essentials. Try assessing each item you intend to pack with these two questions: ‘Do I really need this?’ and, ‘Do I have another item serving the same purpose this said item offers?’.
Usually, 80 percent of the time, if you find yourself pondering over the above-italicized questions, the item in question will usually not be important.

Americanah
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 …
