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)

If you are like me, then you're one of those people who do not find it necessary to drink water while eating until you're done; and only if you remember. May I ask, why do we even do that?

My mother and other significant personalities have been pressuring me to come back home for the weekend since I have been away for about three weeks now.
