LIFE LATELY: Unsubscribing from Adulthood, Hair Struggles, 10 weeks a Teacher & lots of deets!

March 11, 2020


Hey faves!!!!! Have y’all recovered from the awesomeness of my blogshow yet? I’ve been stalling cos I wanted to be sure we were all good and ready for this new blogpost. So “Procrastination be gone” or whatever Rihanna said in her unreleased song.

February and March has had us going from singing “ValentiMe is coming” to trying to get “Egungun be careful” out of our heads. Why can’t adulthood just be all about unnecessary struggles like this. Where can I click the “I’m done” button and go back to being 5 and all cute and spoilt silly again. 
1.UNSUBSCRIBING FROM ADULTHOOD:  I was serious when I asked for the button for this because is this how it works? Like is this really it? The part where you have to make tough decisions and every single thing you decide determines your future 😪. Severally I’ve thought of locking myself in my room and waiting for my Mum or someone to come tell me “Fine, list whatever it is and I’d have it solved”. Jokes on me abi because even mother sometimes wants to be 5 again and unbothered lol. My eyes opened to the reality of this when I received my 33k allawee and I was like “wow! I’m made!” and two days later I went “when is the next money entering because this one has finished”. My data alone, you can relate too yeah? Maybe when I get to fully pay rents myself and other bills, I’d collapse because what is this??????

2. HAIR STRUGGLES: Guys!!!!! Does my hair understand I have other things to worry about? Does my hairline know that I need it to be okay just for me to stay sane? I know how I love braids and after every 3 weeks I look like the image below. If you see me bald after reading this, just know I tried! I did (breaks down into endless Spongebob tears) 

3. 10 WEEKS A TEACHER:  During one of those forceful Monday morning meetings they make us attend in my school, the principal said “It’s week 10” and I’m like “wait what??”, MAMA I MADE IT!!! I’m still trying to understand how I didn’t get to loose my voice or beat up someone’s son or curse out in class because these students can drag your wig!!! I’ve been in their good books, I’m pretty sure of it and it’s been a sweet & bitter experience. 20-something more school weeks to go and I pray I don’t look like what I’ve been through at the end because this is how I feel at the end of every school day. 
4. BOOK & MOVIE REVIEW: There’s a whole section dedicated to this on this blog so before I go do my reviews there please do binge on SGIT (skinny girl in transit) and also read SMART MONEY WOMAN so you’d relate, okay boo?

5. SKINCARE: I wrote during my IG story bants that I haven’t  exfoliated all of this year and people doubted me. I won’t say I’ve been letting my skin breathe but it’s been laziness abeg! Yesterday I had to conquer it because I started to break out a little, imagine waking up to two mighty zits on both cheeks. I’m trying a new home made scrub and all the deets are on this link https://www.instagram.com/s/aGlnaGxpZ2h0OjE3OTUwMTg0ODQ4MzIxMzc5?igshid=1b0dozeciq9s0&story_media_id=2261861857847669884 . Click and be blessed lol 

All these said, I just want to go home to the East for at most, 2 days. I miss my family and I have a few hundred months left (crafting (curing&laughing) at the reality of this) . 

What exactly is the latest life struggle you’re having. Let’s talk!

    Adulthood is a scam. No one told us it was this way.

    Bruh, I totally support no.1 , I’m unsubscribing from this thing called “Adulthood” because I kent deal anymore. How does money even finish ☹️, I don’t know.
    I just recently did my POP, so apparently no more 33k for me, I count you lucky o.
    I find myself, like me, this small me, sending applications for jobs..
    I’m just 21. Why is the stress so much ☹️.

      I think life hits harder when you’re Nigerian. All I want to do is watch cartoons and laugh without thinking of who would provide money for the next meal or dstv subscription. But then we have to survive yeah?
