7 Shares

Something else I did for BellaNaija, check it out! There I was sitting in a focus group organised by my university, making contributions on how mature students could be better catered for. As the only international student participating, I was glad to be able to share my views and perspective. I was enjoying the conversation and had spoken several times but suddenly, as I was about to speak again, it became a struggle to get the words out of my mouth. I stuttered and eventually spluttered out some words. An uneasy silence filled the room, but the moment quickly passed, […]

Spring is finally here!

When I first got to Exeter one thing I wasn’t looking forward to was the cold UK winters. Everyone knows British weather is notoriously unpredictable but I had read that the South was supposedly the “warmer” (or rather the less frosty) part of the UK. However once I got here I was told all I had read wasn’t quite true and heard tale upon tale about how cold it could get during winter. Having lived all my life in warm and sunny Nigeria I was unsure of how I would be able to deal with the cold. I decided I […]

0 Shares

Add caption Setting goals is an activity that has become synonymous with the New Year, but in reality we should set goals year round. Well-defined goals are imperative as they help us focus our energy in the right direction. If for any reason you haven’t set any goals for 2016 don’t despair – there’s no better time than now. Write them down: While it’s nice to daydream while you enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee, it actually makes more sense to write them down. Writing down your goals gives some “flesh” to your dreams and makes them more tangible . […]

To Blog or not to Blog?

0 Shares

When I started blogging over  a decade ago it wasn’t for money or for fame…I simply had loads of time on my hands and free wi-fi so I decided blogging was a cool thing to do. I soon garnered a few followers but after a while I got busy and internet access became a luxury. After a while I started writing for print media and online magazines like Mother-hood Instyle and TW and continued to ignore my blog (silly right?). Hopefully that will change soon and while I still want to write for other outlets I also plan to make […]
