I started the year with a stiff knee from December injuries. I was to travel to Abu Dhabi on the 7th along with winners of a dance competition at where I worked. I was eager as this was my first time leaving Nigeria after a long time.
The cold breeze that embraced me when i stepped out of the airport shook me. What! So the middle east could be this chilly? I doubt i brought inner shirts sef. SMH, i must have read the weather report wrongly. Zoom!
Hotel. We were booked at Aloft Abu Dhabi hotel. Check in and all that brouhaha, I had press releases to type and send about our arrival and mission; we were to attend the Abu Dhabi international dance festival. Come see my room Continue reading
2014 was a good year. A lot happened. Some I can’t remember so I remember too vividly.
I left Lagos for Aba where i had been posted for my NYSC. Arriving in Aba, I made to stay at an hotel(can’t remember the name right now). There was this girl there: Funbi. I lied about not having money so she offered her room! Yayness abi. That would be a mistake almost too long. While in Aba, I broke one of the bigger stories of that part of the year. Banky W supposedly sucking on a girls breasts caught on camera. I also taught Computer studies at a secondary school. SMH. The worst is teaching Igbo kids.
I ended up staying in Aba for a month(during that time, I knew i had to get back to Lagos and face my work or become jobless) so I left my place of primary assignment in search of greener pastures. I returned to Lagos now a proud owner of a situationship and a few words of ibo. I was better off with my trip to the airport. In December 2013, I had gotten lost.
I resumed back at my work as an Continue reading
Didn’t go to work yesterday. Why? I was feeling gorgy and a tad out of sorts. Anyway, decided to go see a movie; I saw ‘guardians of the galaxy’. Not a bad movie
Then headed to see my boiz and ended up at a bar where we got drunk. Lol. It was good to let my hair down middle of the week
Here’s my last weekend in pictures
The talent is insane. View more.
Been a week or two I wrote on here. Since that time I have gone shopping, met with the startup guy and eaten so many things. I am gaining weight seriously. My boss mentioned it today, I need to do something about it sharp!
Got a busy weekend. Saturday, I have to be in class 10am to 4pm then be at Ajah for a gig by night. Sunday, class by 2pm and then a dinner by 5pm
I started a diet yesterday. Not exactly a diet per se but I’m eating and taking note of what i eat. I have also decided to start a 60 day exercise routine by tomorrow; hoping I go through with it. It will involve me running, push-ups and slight work.
In the process, I think I might keep my beard for a bit.

In the past weeks, i have become interested in tech startups between being interested in digital media, watching Digits and Young CEO on NdaniTV and stumbling on different articles in the progress. I am no techy but i love a darn good story and wouldn’t mind being part of one(startup). My high school friend Segun is currently on that path, i have scheduled a meeting with him hoping to get involved in some way. I am interested in the PR though and also the strategies involved in selling his product. I help with the release and publicity of styljunki back in 2012 and one of the founders tell me they are moving into a beta level of monetizing. (see i have started using tech words).
I am currently at the office with work to be done. Work shelved from last week and work piled from this week. Continue reading
