Comfort Foods

I’m not huge on comfort foods, and I’ve never really had to eat comfort foods- have I always been comfortable or whaaaaa? Nah, I just cry and pray and sleep and talk to my friends for comfort. But here are a few things I crave a lot: 1. Steak- actually just barbeque meat dripping with sauce and whatever else makes it taste great! 2. Ice cream- lots and lots of it! 3. Cake- Yeah, I have a bit of a sweet tooth! Interestingly, when I was a serious fitfam adherent, my comfort food changed, and were largely replaced by fruits, I kid you not. Also, I don’t think comfort food is a big deal where I come from. I don’t think we really eat for “comfort” per se– you simply eat because well, you need food to survive. Or you want to celebrate, or you eat food with family. But for comfort? nah, I only heard of that when I crossed over to the US of A. Have a lovely day ahead guys! See you …

Religion. Big bad Religion.

Today’s question asks my views on religion. Sigh. I don’t like having these kinds of conversations because it always gets so complicated so quickly. But I will tell you this- I am a Christian, and my faith (AKA my relationship with God)  is the most important thing in my life. I am also Roman Catholic. Some people have challenged me on being a catholic, the same way non-Christians challenge Christians, and non-religious people challenge religious people. And that’s okay. Because we should question everything and believe nothing blindly. Quite honestly, I’m really tired tonight. I fell asleep really late last night because of the roommate’s endless bedtime stories were just too sweet for me to sleep off. So maybe another time, I shall share my views on religion. However, I do know this one thing to be true: God is real. He loves us. And He literally died to have a relationship with you and I. I was going to leave it at that, but I just realized that saying “God” is very ambiguous. I’m referring specifically …

It’s the little things you do…

For today, I’m supposed to share my top five pet peeves. Once again, I am not sure what those are, but in no random order, here are some little things that get on my nerves. English Mistakes. I’ve recently seen one too many. I don’t know if being an English major has contributed to this, but I greatly dislike it when people don’t use proper english, especially after they’ve finished forming for me and using big grammar. I mentioned this to my summer roommate yesterday, and she retorted “that’s your privilege speaking”. She was right. Perhaps this irks me because I was privileged enough to have Mrs Smith and Mr Kolawole and Mr Eke teach me correct english, or whatever. But I also went to a school where you were laughed at if you made a grammatical mistake. I remember leaving the dining hall one day and I blurted “Ibukun did you lost weight?”. Time stood still and everyone turned to look at the public spectacle that I had become in that second. Luckily, I was in …

Please stop asking me; I don’t know where I want to be in ten years’ time!

Where do I want to be in ten years’ time? To be very honest, I have no idea. I understand that my response should indicate the perfect scenario in my mind, if I had a wand to make all my dreams come true. Even at that, I don’t know. If you asked me this question last year, I would have provided a full rundown of exactly where I wanted to be in 5 years’. But I’ve realized that life doesn’t always turn out as you want it to. I know, I know. I’m being annoying because this questions is asking for the perfect scenario. But to be honest, this year has thrown one too many curve balls my way, and I think I’ve become slightly afraid to dream. Or maybe I’m just too superstitious to say my dreams out loud. Fine. Even at that, there are three things I want to have in my life. 1. Some sort of family. I may or may not have my own biological family, but I do want people to take …

30 Day Writing Challenge

I’m changing the questions for my 30 day challenge, because I find these new questions more evocative. Also, I feel like I’ll share more/ learn more about myself with this new set of questions. I’m starting tomorrow with my challenge. Don’t get bored of me lol. I’ll try to keep the longest posts at 500 words.   Actually, I can start tonight. 1. Discuss your current relationship- I ain’t got one! Stay tuned for #2 tomorrow! Image from here.
