I have decided to start a travel wish list kind of thing, called -see title above- I got the phrase from a Dr. Suess book. I pick a place and just talk about it, this is meant to be a factual guide, just me rambling , hmm should be fun.
Why: I want to go to France because I love the French language, I think it is the third best language in the world after Igbo and English of course. I also want to see all the touristy landmarks like the Effiel tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Place du Concorde, the Seine and the Muse de Louvre. I want to see Paris, Nice and Normandy. I also want to eat good cheese and drink wine 🍷.
When: I hope that 2 years from now after my Msc. before I join the working class, maybe I will have some money saved up……. MAYBE.
How: If I am in the UK, I would like to take a use the English channel (if Brexit hasn’t caused them to seal it up), and ‘boat’ my way into France. If I am in Nigeria I shall fly (boring and scary).
Famous for: Did you know that France is the world’s most popular tourist destination. France has a six-sided shape so it is sometimes called L’hexagone i.e. The hexagon.French wines are really expensive costing over a thousand Euros. It’s famous cities include Paris, Marseilles, Lyon, Nice, Le man’s, Cannes and Montpellier.
Looking forward to : Eating cheese and sipping wine, eating a baugette, watching a mime perform and having an opportunity to exclaim “Sacre Bleu “😎
So I woke up today at my usual time 2pm-ish – Don’t judge me. Next my mother walks into the room and starts shouting about laziness and some other things I didn’t hear because I was sleepy. Anyway I decided to really think about if I am truly lazy.
My daily routine goes something like this:
- Wake up at 2pm 😟
- Eat Breakfast /Lunch (Brunch?)
- Shower and the start reading or writing
- If there is food to cook, and it’s my turn to cook, I cook it
- Watch my siblings exercise (Yes!, I am too lazy to join )
- By 6pm when NEPA brings the light or the generator comes on and I watch TV till 2 am
- From 2 am I troll the internet until 6am when I fall asleep
OK, looking at this will definitely make me seem lazy but, hey! I am a victim of circumstance. I have literally nothing to do at home so why wake early in my opinion?
My mother is always going on and on about how a woman needs to be extra hard working to run a home and career at the same time.
The thing is I remember that during my NYSC, I religiously kept my room clean while also going to my school (PPA) to teach.
I decided to look at this thing critically and I can say this, I am more productive at nighttime, I feel more energized, Ideas flow faster and I manage to accomplish more. I have found out that in the morning, I feel very lacklustre and generally bland.
So seeing as it is working for me, I will continue to sleep by 6am and wake up by 2pm until I have cause to rearrange my Lifestyle.
So my advice to you is find what works and by God stick to it until something better comes along and makes you reconsider.
Hello, my name is Adaora. I decided to start this blog because my friend told me to 😁. Well, that is not the whole story, at the moment I am in a gap-year induced slump. I think this is the part of my life where I am not moving forward or backward, and I am really starting to question all my life decisions that led me to this place.
The point is I am bored out of my mind, can’t get a reasonable and equally challenging job, so my friend suggested I start a blog and I decided to give it a try.
I was really skeptical at first because it made me think of all the ideas I conceived in my mind but never had the heart to follow through on and trust me these past few months there have been a lot of ideas 💡.
However, I decided to follow through on this one,start small and see where it leads and what it leads to, such that no matter what, I would have taken a leap.
I hope this works out well and I have a lot of fun doing this. I also hope that blogging makes me a better writer, more articulate and helps me sort through the issues that are plaguing me.
So here is to raking things one step at a time, discovering myself and hopefully a great adventure. 🙌 🙆
