The Liebster Blog Award. (Get to know me more)

Hey guys
Long time no post yeah? I know, right. That was the same thing I said to myself a day before. I didn't expect that to change as I have my neck deep in exams and I'm currently a convalescent. I just checked my mail and to my amazement, I realised that Tobi of journalthreesixty nominated me for the Liebster Award. I've always seen the Liebster Award thingy on blogs even before I started blogging but I didn't expect to join in on the fun so fast. Thanks Tobi 💋

The rules of the Award are quite simple. All that has to be done is


– Thank the blogger who nominated you.

– Display the Liebster Badge on your site.

– Answer the questions that were sent.

– Choose 5 (to 11) blogs to nominate.

– Send 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted a space to share my musings, findings and also to inspire others. Also because I needed a healthy distraction from school work.
2. Apart from blogging, what else do you do?
Study. Study. Study. I'm an Undergraduate.
3. Favourite music at the moment?
None. Weird? Not weird? Whatever.
4. Describe yourself in one sentence
I'm not just another pretty face. (Subtle, very subtle I know hahaha)
5. What's the first thing on your bucket list?
It's safe to say I don't have a bucket list at least not one with a scale of preference but to go to Athens, Greece is definitely gonna top the list.
6. What won't you be caught eating?
Anything that's not edible. Lool, I'm not a foodie, believe me.
7. What/who inspires you?
Happenings around me. Everyday occurrences in general.
8. Any Phobia?
Yes!! Literally everything there is to be scared of. Especially animals.
9. Are you a planner or spontaneous?
I'm somewhat in between. I make plans but they tend to change so I just go with the flow.
10. Share one lesson you've learnt as a blogger
Never compare your blog journey with that of others.

For someone who would rather not be at the receiving end of questions, I enjoyed answering Tobi's questions.

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

The Packing Series: Clothes And Everything in between..

I'm here picturing myself on the receiving end of this content and wondering if I would prefer it as a written or visual content. I'm tilting towards visual but nevertheless, I'm still putting together a written one.
Packing is stressful guys. Oh, I already said that in my last post but I just have to state it again, for the culture.

Clothes

This was not as boring as I had anticipated. Probably because I did it at night and many boxes were checked (pun unintended!). It was 10pm, I had just finished seeing a movie, there was light, I'm naturally a night owl. Check, check. I'm definitely not here to talk about folding and categorizing clothes so, there's not much to talk about. What lesson(s) did I learn? Well, bracing the odds of going ahead with packing my clothes instead of lazing in bed and on social media that night made me realize and relearn that if you ever get the urge to do something in a particular moment, then you should do it. Someone pops into your…

My NYSC Orientation Camp Experience in Lagos State

For someone who spent hours reading about the camp experience of other people, it would be super selfish of me not to pay it forward. There was literally no way I wouldn't write this post and so, here I am, doing just that. I'd try to keep it simple though, not like there's much to talk about.
For those who aren't familiar with NYSC, here's how it works. After graduating from a tertiary institution, Nigerian youths have to undergo this compulsory 'National Youth Service Corps' for one year. The scheme is in 4 phases and is kicked off by the 21 days orientation camp in whatever state you get posted to.
Let me start by saying getting posted to Lagos was nothing short of a miracle. One minute I was mentally planning a diet suitable for a very long distance travel and reducing my load and the next minute, all was fine with the world.

Going into full details would be TMI but I'd be happy to share if anyone asks. Remember I said I read many people's camp…
