january recap

Hi readers!
How are you today? As good as I am I hope. Saw this image on Instagram which was talking about how January was just a test run, like a trial version of this year. Haha I’m feeling that way at the moment. I wasn’t exactly pumped up through January but there is so much that can come from February for real. Thought I’d share a January recap and throwback post. Lest I forget, happy new month! January went by so slow I tell you. Before I jump into the January recap, err did I achieve much? Well yes in a way.

Anyway, school will be resuming in three weeks and I want to get in as many blog posts as I can as I might have to go on hiatus for some weeks after resumption. Trust me, there will be plenty posts to check out here then. If you follow my poetry page on Instagram (@storyteller__d), you might notice how regular I’ve been posting there. I am honestly trying to balance all my interests well. How do you cope guys? Help! Finally rounding off my internship in two weeks and my boss doesn’t want me to leave lol. I’m in dire need of a vacation. Can you suggest anywhere cool in South Western Nigeria?

So February is finally here and everyone, okay almost everyone is buzzing about Valentine and love and I’m just here like … . Debbie is probably side eyeing me now. I won’t say anything bad about love at all. I really doubt I’d get in the Valentine mood though. Like am I actually single this Valentine again? Wow. Let’s see how next year will be though. But can I get a cake for Valentine? Somebody please surprise me!

Let’s throw back a bit shall we? January last year, I talked about positivity in the new year. I started a food series which I practically forgot about after a chocolate chip cookie recipe I shared. Honestly, I was scared to dive into cooking for blog posts *covers face* Kudos to food bloggers! I shared bits about my love for books and growing up as an introvert also. My first ever style post and mini Ibadan exploration went up last year too.

Got a bit personal in current situation and then my love for crop tops came to feature in my second style post. Starting off each week with these five poems is a great idea I promise. What’s the big deal with birthdays? Shared my opinion in birthdays

    I’ve never been a val person…I always feel there’s nothing special about that day that I cannot get any other day, so I am basically indifferent to val.
