Change according to the old cliché is the only constant thing in life. Change is distinct. Change occurs in our daily lives and most times, cannot be seen except one take a close and deeper look. Change must occur if we desire to move forward otherwise, one will become obsolete, redundant and complacent. Change is ephemeral. Change is normal. Change is progressive and it’s what makes everyday life different and interesting. Continue reading
Long Post Alert!
“Hmmn. Stella, Did you say you want to study abroad? Na wao. As if there’s no Unilag (University of Lagos)? Some people get big eye sha”. You know your father cannot afford abroad for you…And you’re looking for £1k. Do you know how much that is?” And I said, Yes I know, it’s N100k. Some years ago!
And my friend laughed. Ignored me and didn’t say a word to me again. After some quirky moments of silence, I left her shop. A few months later I got a Scholarship to study abroad. I got a paid scholarship to study in Denmark. Oh wow! Continue reading

He stood there in his well-starched uniform and for a few seconds didn’t seem to have any words to utter. He was in total shock as a wave of memories surged like an ocean and engulfed him in grief. His handsome face had a big scar by the neck. He bent down and tears ran down freely in his cheek. Continue reading
The weekend had come and gone. And life goes on so rapidly.
It’s a new day and then a new day becomes an old day and then move on to the next day
If you are lucky you keep moving on as the pages turn
I tried to write in the weekend. To write some really cool stuffs.
I started to write, then I started to doze. I got up made some good coffee
Then I started to feel like munching something.
I opened the fridge and found some bits and pieces
Of food to chew. No, not what I like to snack.
Then I found some nuts. Love them nuts so I munched away.
I wrote a few lines. Got up again.
I found my jacket. My boot. My hand gloves. And my scarf.
I wore them and felt bloated. But had no choice else the cold
Will make a mockery of me. So l walked out of the house listening to a cool music.
Outside, the temperature was harsh and wicked.
Life was freezing away.
The streets were covered in fog. And visibility was poor. But I moved on.
My heart was beating fast as I took one step and then another step.
But one thing was clear in the foggy weather
I could hear an unspeakable peace. Tranquil and serenity
It was all so encompassing.
My heart was joyous as I sent out a flicker of smile
To Mother Nature.
True, there is something so overwhelming. In the cold.
This moment is all there is to see in life.
This moment. These encompassing breaths.
These hurried steps in the cold peaceful atmosphere
I looked above me to the limitless sky
All gray, wispy and pale.
Everywhere was quiet but my breath. My steps.
As the city breathes peace and tranquil
I paused in my strides.
Turned round but not a shadow in sight
My heart was joyous
The moments I spend with myself
With the beautiful vastness of this earth
Cherished. Heartwarming. So very profound.
I made a detour
It was time to grace some warmth again
Peace and Love!

Change is the only constant thing. Tonight, I am so knackered. It was a very hectic day at work… and I couldn’t really be here (on the blogosphere) as I would have loved to today. Sorry, but the quotes will wait till tomorrow. Instead, here is something to take away from me. Continue reading
