Since I came out of the compulsory fourteen days quarantine period for recent travellers, I’ve been going for walks around my neighbourhood instead of driving all the way to the Lekki/Ikoyi bridge. I still get my 5km in but I’ve been unable to take a walk alone in peace.
You are not alone. I feel it too. The fear. The panic. The uncertainty. The inability to take your mind off the news update every day. The worry you no longer have control over. The wonder about when we will have normalcy again.
Remote working is not a new work arrangement and as much as working from home was already being implemented by most forward-thinking companies abroad, a lot of companies in Nigeria preferred the conventional way of working.
I think it’s okay to be a bit weird or a bit quirky. It’s what makes you you so you should own it and not try to hide it. We all have things we do that are a bit far from ordinary that make us unique.
Hey there, it’s time for another fun or not facts. I visited Toronto in March 2020. It wasn’t my first time travelling to Canada but it was my first time in Toronto.
1.) Toronto is the largest city in Canada
2.) Toronto is referred to as The Six
This post contains a compilation of five short poems.
1. I MISS YOU
I wish we were quarantined together
because I’ve missed you more
in these past few days
I remember reading The Smart Money Woman at the tail end of 2016 and commending myself for already doing most of the things mentioned in the book. The story was relatable and I liked how we learned about money; its highs and its lows through the lives of five different friends.
We’re in the middle of a global pandemic
people are dying every day
and hope seems so far away
I am well
I am healed
I am safe
I have faith
I am not afraid
I bet you’ve heard the saying
no one knows tomorrow
several times and thought
well, the richest man in the world knows tomorrow
Coronavirus disease (covid-19) has put life as we know it on hold all around the world. I happened to be away at some point during this pandemic and I’m sharing my travel experience with you all. If you haven’t read the first part, you would have to read it first because this post is a continuation of the previous one.
I was excited about getting time off work and spending quality time with my little sister and my friends. However, as the commencement of my trip got closer, I became worried. We only had one case of covid-19 in Nigeria but the cases around the world kept increasing every day.
