Reasons I Wish I Wasn't Serving

  1. My boyfriend has been fighting with me. I even think we’ve broken up. I’ll tell you as soon as I’m sure.

2) I’m so broke I have to fart in my purse to get a cent. Don’t ask me about monthly allowee, that money vanishes like blood money.
3) I experienced my first robbery where a gun was pointed in my face, Naija film style: your phone or your life?
4) My brain is paining me. I have been writing articles and papers on topics I know nothing about: philosophy, education, music, mother-tongue, mother-shit… and shit like that.
5) Garri has never tasted better. We bought two ‘bags’ of garri today.
6) I miss my bed back at home.
7) I’ve gone darker. The lightest part of my body is my feet. They are still fair from three weeks of wearing white canvas in Umunya NYSC Orientation Camp.
8) And lastly, I miss my toilet at home!

I am a Nigerian graduate documenting the perks and pains of being a graduate without long leg in Nigeria; while also contributing her quota to make the world a better place. Lets be friends on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. You'll find me there as Naijafreshgraduate.
