After months of saving, losing and postponing, I got my laptop today. I went to Banex in Abuja with my friend and two of his brothers. Don't think it was too many people o, because the people at Banex can be crooks if you are not lucky to meet the good ones. I had only… Continue reading I Finally Got My Laptop!
Since I came back home, things have changed. You know, I always had it in mind that things would change when I finished school, but I never thought it would be this... Overwhelming. As a jobless human, they have given me new roles at home and my worries have evolved into a journey of uncertainty.… Continue reading Now That I Am A Former Corper: Adjusting Into The Graduate Life

I am overwhelmed these days. No, in a bad way. I hardly have time to do anything else that is not work related, 24/7.
