If you wear suits a lot, just iron the shirts' collar and cuffs. 2) Your money is enough to buy a phone, but not enough to get at least, two powerbanks with it? Don't buy the phone. It's useless. 3) If you have… Continue reading 20 Life Hacks for Every Nigerian

My NYSC Experience: Azaya (10)

We left Gembu around 7.30am for the six hour journey to Jalingo. The journey was uneventful and not as scary as when I first came up. After the first time, you pretty much get used to the terrain of that area. It was still beautiful to watch though, but not scary anymore. We got to… Continue reading My NYSC Experience: Azaya (10)

Of Blisters, Rage and the Perfect Pounded Yam

The pain and anger were locked up somewhere inside of me. I was mad at everything at the same time. It was weakening and stressful.
