Inertia

Besides struggling with constant suicidal thoughts, I’ve suffered from utter apathy for little over a year now. Nothing excites me anymore, nothing makes me happy anymore. Just when I thought I was at my darkest moment, I met someone on Twitter and fell in love.



Notes on a Quarter Century

If my seventeen year old self could see me now, she’d be very surprised. This isn’t how I imagined being twenty-five would be at all. I really believed that by twenty-five I would be a full-fledged adult with my life thoroughly together, probably even married, and with a baby on the way.

Somehow that hasn’t happened yet, and in a few hours, I will be six years into my twenties without a fucking clue what I am doing or where I am going with my life.



September Shuffle

It’s a big, scary world out there, and sometimes I want to run home with my tail tucked between my legs, back to the comfort of being a Nigerian young adult housed, fed, and supported entirely by long-suffering older family members


Intermission

I miss Abuja but it doesn’t seem like I’ll be able to go back, at least not until the end of the year at any rate. Until then, I have to find a way to make DC my home. If you know anyone who’s hiring, I’m available. Seriously.


Burnout

I think when it comes to art, I hold myself to such impossibly high standards that anything short of perfection is an utter disappointment for me.
