Life Lately!

Hey guys!

So I’ve decided to take a shot at freelance writing. Yeah it feels so abrupt but I knew someday, one way or the other, I was gonna finally go for it. The opportunity has sort of presented itself. I have no idea why I’m still holding back. My biggest fear is that I might not be able to deliver especially since I don’t do a lot of social commentary. I have a very vague idea of pop culture or religion. I love reading but I don’t read that much. I don’t get myself involved in anything, issues, topics that would twist my mindset of things. I’m not interested in how many albums Beyonce or Rihanna have neither am I bothered about how many charts they’ve topped. I really really don’t care about atheists or catholics. I couldn’t be bothered about how they choose to or not to serve God. Politics is a no go area. With these challenges, I’m not too sure I can succeed in it but what do I know?
Well, I’m gonna keep reading on it, you know. Haven’t really done any proper research and I’ll see what I can come up with. I’m also kind of wary about these sites that promise to ”help” in exchange for a certain amount of money. I’m not about to let myself fall a victim of internet scam. Eventually, I’m gonna need to do a lot of things by myself.

Side Note: Church was awesome today. I returned to my old church where I grew up in and it was fun. Service was different,I haven’t enjoyed it in a while. I danced till I had cramps. Saw some old faces. Everyone’s grown! I was careful enough to sit aside. I was about to bring any attention to myself. But it was all good. In the midst of all the greeting and hugging, it was good.

What have you guys been up to?

For The Love Of Writing.

Hi guys!

I’ve always loved writing for as long as I can remember.

Back in the day I had notebooks where I copied articles from magazines and inspirational books. I wrote them down to read later on. When one was finished I would staple a new one to the back cover. That was as early as 12-13 years old. Other times, when I wasn’t writing articles, I wrote lyrics of my favourite songs. [Yeah that’s what happens when you’re indoor most of the time or you move to a remotely deserted area for your high school education]. LOL

Anyways, as I grew up I kept these books. They were my personal library and day by day they increased. I was always writing. I had a nice penmanship; you wouldn’t blame me. So I had little or no problems forming notes when I got to high school because I enjoyed it. For most of the time I was captain, so I almost always succeeded in sprearheading note-making. LOL. Some of my mates took offence for that.

Before he graduated, my cousin [he was a couple of years ahead of me] always came to my class to give me his notes to write for him. I was a junior then, he was[is] my cousin, I didn’t have a choice.

Years down the line, I’m here; a budding writer with big dreams. I had no idea. A couple of weeks ago, I went through my old posts and came across my very first post. When I was done, I knew in my heart I was cut out for this. I was impressed with myself. There wasn’t so much difference; I have improved yeah but then with little or no experience of writing on a platform like this; I was proud of myself. Still am. [That doesn’t mean I’m gonna be complacent.]. Day in day out, I thrive to be a bigger and better writer. I take as many writing ”gigs” as possible just to express and improve. I read more and more. I take down new words, I write on the most random thing,I borrow themes here and there just because it feels good. I tell myself, I’m not just a random blogger, I’m a writer. There’s more to writing than blogging even though they are both interwined.

I’ve grown from keeping an anthology to owning a personal blog and I know that this is just the beginning.

P.S: Hey guys. By the left sidebar, there’s a facebook like box, could you please like my blog page* Pretty please* *bats eyelashes* Thanks in advance.

Life Lately.

Hey guys!

I’ve had one heck of a week. I think it should count as the worst week in my entire work history. [not that it’s been long anyways]. That kind of week you wish you could just walk out, walk away from everything even your paycheck. Yup! that kind. Considering it’s almost the end of the month, I’ve had to just stick around,endure and listen to good music. I’m really really trying to hold back my sauciness and not leave a bad impression.

In other news, Photography classes start soon! Whoop!!! I’m so so excited. I love the fact that I’m gonna be able to cover events,shoots and all. There’s nothing as fulfilling as being able to do something you’ve grown to love and be paid for it. Awesome! And yeah I’m gonna create another blog for my works.

School’s just there. This year’s has been a sorta gap year for me. I needed to make certain decisions that would affect my future. I’m really hoping the results are pleasant enough to make up for the hiatus.

I’m returning to Alliance Francaise to finish my French course and probably bag another diploma [my mum’s so gonna make sure of that ]. I’m pretty excited about this too. Amean there’s conversation class [ the only time I get to practice my French] and free Wi-Fi. Can life get any better?! *sigh.

Makeup classes should start soon too. Hopefully before the end of the year.

And then writing continues. I’ve been writing for http://lifestylewithjay.com incase you didn’t know. So all ye DIY-natural-junkie-wanabees, you might wanna join me there.

Lest I forget, I was featured on African Naturalistas’blog. Whoop! You can read my interview here

As usual no dramas of any sort,i live a peaceful life. [that’s what you get with no boyfriend and a tiny circle of friends].

LOL.

I.Write.For.Me

Hey!

Yep! That’s what’s up incase you didn’t know,now you know. I don’t wanna become one of those people that write what the readers expect thereby pushing their feelings and thoughts aside or try be biased. I’m not about entertainment or controvesy; that’s what Linda Ikeji’s for, i write to express,to inspire,to escape. I write for me. TBVH, i really don’t have my readers in mind when i write. Really. I just wanna let it all OUT! No barriers!

That been said, i think over the months i’ve haven’t really had to deal with my offline friends. Most of them don’t even know about the existence of this blog which is soo cool by me. I don’t have to contend with anyone or try to prove anything to anyone. I just need to write so that one day i’ll look back and smile knowing that i wrote my heart out. [Sorry Tomi, i had to say this. It felt soo RIGHT!]

But notwithstanding i appeciate EVERY SINGLE person that has dropped by to read my ramblings. You’re farr too kind! I just feel if i have to be cautious of every word i write, then it’s defeats the whole purpose of being a personal blog which obviously it is. I should be able to express myself as freely as i want. That’s one of the reasons i stopped spamming people with my posts on Twitter. There are times i have to pause and remind myself this things. I don’t wanna end up in a fix whereby i’ll be forced to satisfy both parties.

Ok i think i’ve said enough on this.

Have an awesome week guys!

Don’t worry i still love y’all.

:*:*:*:*
