Life Update | Still Alive and Blogging
I was going to take stock but there’s nothing really to take stock about so I thought to do a life update instead. I know I have been MIA. It is unintentional. I love my blog, I want to be consistent – I really do but life gets in the way all the damn time.
To be honest, I have been frustrated that finance is getting in the way of me starting my business(es). I mean I want to do a lot of stuff but you need capital to start any business.
I’m tired of making excuses. I apologize for not being consistent with my posts this month. This post is mostly ramblings, I hope it goes down pretty well!
So, what have I been up to?
Truth be told, my life is quiet boring so there’s nothing really fun going on around here. I work as a digital marketer for an Ecommerce company (www.dubazon.com) amazing thing about this job is I get to work from home but I have to go to the office on Saturdays. Working from home kinda makes one lazy. Although I have a daily routine, I never keep to it. I end up not doing up to half of my todo list – so I decided to go start going to the office.
A little background story
I’m a driving school dropout. Not proud at all. But getting a driving license in this country is so expensive I mean 8000aed approximately (800k naira) expensive. I am here thinking this money could buy me an actual car or even a piece of land in Ikorodu (Nigeria). And so I dropped out! 😩😩😩However, I just renewed my learning permit because this past 2 weeks has thought me that car is a necessity in this country.
My mum has been my driver. I hate to walk, much more I hate to walk under the sun because my body starts itching. You know the feeling when you have heat rashes and you walk under the sun, yes! That unpleasant feeling. The fam knows of my many allergies, my mum thinks it’s just ‘my mind’ and jokingly saying says I better marry a billionaire with all my many allergies. 😬😂😅
When I told them of my decision to go to the office with public transport – they laughed. Morris gave 2 days, mumc gave me a week 😬😂😅. Mind you, it is a 5 minutes’ walk from my house to the bus station – 2 buses, metro and another 15mins walk to the office.
2hrs respectively back and forth, what a journey! But I was determined (to never give up) to show them I can do this. Mumc offered to drive me down a couple of times (less than 30mins drive o!) but I turned down the tempting offer. Bruh! I got sick on the 3rd day. 😩😩😩
Long story short I am back to working from home. Summer is here it was 38 degrees a few days ago. My complexion is way darker than it used to be and I was spending way too much on transportation when I can work from the comfort of my bed.
And O! I have great news…
My cousin is getting married in June so I would most likely be in Nigeria. My trip hasn’t been confirmed yet but I really hope I can make it.
Please let me know of any blogging or fashion related event coming up in June as I’d love to attend. I’d also love to host a blogger’s brunch sort of where we can network and share some blogging tips. What do you say?
Been catching up on my favorite series and web series – Grimm (watched the final episode today), The originals (any vampire fans here?), Reign, Shuga (I kinda miss it being shot in Lagos), Husbands of Lagos, Client’s List (Can’t wait for the next episode). Series suggestion please?
I need blog post ideas guys, I am hitting the blogger’s block. What would you want me to blog about?
I think that’s all I’ve got for now, but I want to hear what you’ve been up to! Tell me something good that’s happened to you this week.
Looking forward to sharing more interesting and insightful posts. I’m coming back baby!
Miss you all.
