It’s been a very long week and exhausting week and through it all, my mental health managed to be back on track . If you have followed my recent post. https://yosiblog.com.ng/2020/10/21/living-in-fear-life-update/

I’m very sure you will understand what I’m talking about.

I’ve decided to ask few of my friends the hardest part of being Nigerian.

Nigeria /naɪˈdʒɪə.ɹɪə/Noun

A Country in West Africa, south of the country of Niger. Official name: Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Ayomide Ogunsiakan


I told my friend i was writing this and he said, “Hmmm. There’s the hardest part? I thought it was the whole experience.”
And I couldn’t agree more.

As a Nigerian, you should always have second options because life (read government) comes at you fast, with what you once considered a grand master plan being ruined by policies made to frustrate the lives of citizens.
You are constantly faced with the risk of death either by SARS or the terrible roads in the country, and I’m honestly being generous by limiting it to these two.
As a Nigerian you are surrounded by people who constantly romanticise suffering, such that you are made to feel undeserving if things are relatively easy for you. You are tagged as disrespectful for demanding accountability. The older person is always right even when he is obviously a fool.

Being Nigerian is having to deal with a strong feeling of helplessness, the leaders constantly gaslight and insult your intelligence such that you begin to think it’s all in your head. You get so accustomed to dysfunction that you celebrate the barest minimum. You need connection to get EVERYTHING, even when you are ordinarily supposed to get it on merit.

On a more personal level, it is studying law in a country where leaders have no regard for the law. It is receiving substandard education and having lecturers that mark you down just to fuel their already inflated ego. It is getting constantly harassed and watching the perpetrators move freely because the law makes seeking justice unbearable. It is dealing with misogynistic men who don’t see a problem with their barbaric thinking because they live in a society that supports it. It is having to deal with uncertainties and having dreams dashed by selfish and corrupt leaders.
Finally, it is being forced to remain hopeful and thrive in a country that is currently hanging on a thread.

Chioma Onuegbu

The Nigerian society is poorly structured which makes it hard even to get some basic things.

Personally, I have had my own fair share of the terrible roads, the bad educational system, the bad health care system.

In Nigeria, Everything revolves around how much money you have to be comfortable and attain some certain things. You must have money to make money or to be considered an influential person.

Tobi Adalumo

NIGERIA!!!

Every country on the surface of the earth has its ups and downs, but when the negatives outshine the positives over a long period of time and the government does next to nothing to change the situation of things, the government of such a country is referred to as a failed one.

Tobi Adalumo

Sadly, this is the present condition of a once great and respected nation; Nigeria.
There are so many difficult parts to being a Nigerian.
First, is the absence of social, economic and political liberty.
SOCIAL – Any gathering that involves young people having fun, partying and having a good time, SARS officials troop in from nowhere, uninvited, harassing everyone all for nothing. We are referred to as cultists and Yahoo boys and girls just because we are living better than they did in their youth, because we use expensive clothing and gadgets. Our social freedom has been trampled upon and no one seems bothered enough to do something about it.

ECONOMIC – The best jobs and opportunities are hoarded, being reserved for the children of the wealthy and influential in the society, even those of them who do not merit such jobs and opportunities such as scholarships among others. A country that has so much wealth, yet the majority of the populace are poor and can’t boldly boast of three complete meals a day.

POLITICAL – A country that does not involve her youth in the Nation-Building agenda is bound for failure. The youth are said to be the future of a Nation. In Nigeria however, the youth are just there; existing, with no plan for us. Looking at Nigeria, one would realize that it’s the same generation that has been at the helm of affairs from independence till now. How is such a country is supposed to make progress?
This is my country, where I should feel safest, there’s the fear of dying at any time as a by-product of lack of adequacy in securing of lives and property. Travelling from one state to another, one comes across 15-30, sometimes more security checkpoints comprising the Army, Police, Civil Defense, Special Operations Unit amongst others. Still, we hear of armed robberies, kidnappings, rituals among other crimes being committed on these same roads. One then wonders, “What good do these military and para-military officers serve other than specializing at collecting bribes?”


Perhaps, the most difficult part to being an average Nigerian is living each day not knowing what the future holds for you.
Another difficulty, and this might seem funny is trying to convince a foreigner you met on the internet, especially Americans that we don’t live in huts in Nigeria and Africa in general. Most times, I feel like insulting them for making such statements. On the other hand however, I do not blame them. Our leaders have made it so, that asides the initial relegation of Nigeria and Africa by Europeans, they themselves (our leaders) have contributed greatly to this problem by representing us wrongly in the international community. I made a comment in a Play Station Group on Facebook earlier this year. We were to comment on a game that was just released along with our country of origin and residence. I made mine like everyone else, the mistake I made was to type NIGERIA. Next I knew, someone replied me saying “Nigeria?”

How the fuck are you online?

“I heard there’s no electricity in that country.”

I felt ashamed and sorry for myself and my country.


A Dubai citizen made a statement a few months back saying “Dubai has not up ¼ of Nigeria’s natural resources, yet Dubai is one of the fastest, not growing but developing places in the world, because we have a good leader, something which Nigeria lacks.”


After hearing this, I sat to think and wonder if there is indeed hope for this country—and just when I had lost hope, — the youth of Nigeria stsrted a revolution to take control of their future. Read(#EndSARS protests). The greatest of revolution takes time but I know there is hope for Nigeria.

Esther Adekunle

I think the hardest part of being a Nigerian is the fact that we are all constantly in fear. Each time, we hit road all we can do pray and hope we are not kidnapped or even involved in an accident due to the bad roads.

WHAT IS THE HARDEST PART OF BEING A NIGERIAN?

Posted in Uncategorized

LIVING IN FEAR—LIFE UPDATE

It is currently 1am as I write this post with tears in my eyes. Yes , we are all living in fear in Nigeria right now. No one knows who is next or what might happen next. Each time, I want to give up—i remember Jimoh Isiaq and many others we don’t every know of that their lives have been cut short by police brutality. Nigeria needs your prayers and we need to win this fight!

The message still remains #EndSARS but are SARS our only problem in Nigeria when the government are even worse.

Protests have spread across Nigeria and a lot have taken to social media and the streets to fight against police brutality and the menace of SARS.

For my non-Nigerian subscribers, you may have been following international news for the past one week or you may have heard the phrase or have seen the hashtag #EndSARS or maybe you haven’t.

What is SARS?

The full meaning of SARS is ‘Special Anti-Robbery Squad.’ However, for a long time now this “squad” has gone outside of their stipulated functions and are now a nightmare in this country. They have been killing and harassing innocent young youths in the country under the guise of “they are criminals.”

How can you help?

A simple #EndSARS hashtag on any of your social media would go a long way—you can never underestimate the power of social media. You can also help by sign
donating to  https://donatebtc.feministcoalition2020.com

I’m tired, we all are. I can’t count how many times I have cried this month. Seeing videos of how the police have responded using violence means to disperse a peaceful protest. Who does that?

All we ask is to not be shot, we are not even protesting for basic things— the government has refused to offer us. We are only fighting for our survival.

Whether you are out on the frontlines protesting, or tweeting, donating, mobilising support, signing petitions; I see you and I’m proud of you and i know we are winning this fight.

P.S : I am sending hugs, all of my love, prayers and best wishes as we keep pushing till our demands are met to #EndSARS and EndBadGovernmentInNigeria

P.P.S: Say a prayer of Nigeria.

P.P.P.S: Whatever you do, don’t be silent!

Things we are all guilty of.

Estimated reading time: 00:04:12

Thanks for stopping by *lol* 😉
Today’s post will be a little longer and different—so grab that bottle of water *no soda!* Yes, I said what I said;-) you might be needing popcorn, a biscuit or two and get comfy in that chair or bed.

In today’s post I share things we are all guilty of.

We are guilty of being so called up to the things of this world, ruining, striving, toiling so hard to achieve things that don’t just matter or do they? *think about it* and we neglect the most important thing of all which is our relationship with God.

  I guess it is the world that we live in that affect us, the moment you were born, everyone keeps pushing you to do more, be more—right from the time we were just that little baby being forced to crawl before everyone else and take that first step before everyone till you are put in school, where everyone expects you be at the top of the class, and if you aren’t keeping up they still try to push you harder making sure you are in the best school/University—so you get the best job until you are constantly trying to be running faster and faster so you are better than everybody else. Don’t get me wrong it is actually a good thing to have people who care enough to push you to do better.

These days, it is like everyone is too busy—we are all running so fast that we have no time for anybody else—we are always exhausted yet we keep running and running and lot of us don’t even know why we are running.

Why are we running?

Why do we keep pushing ourselves so hard to make more money?

Yeah I get it, we all want that business, a really nice car and that house.

But what really happens, when the business or that car is gone. I’m not trying to be a pessimist here but think about it again and again.

Note: I’m not saying hardwork is a bad thing, hardwork is a really great thing. You have to work really hard to achieve a lot.

This directs me to a verse  in the Bible “Psalm 47:10
Be still, and know that I am God
And that is where the problem comes, in the world of today, it is so hard to just be still when everyone is pushing so hard and running so fast. We have literally the world at our fingertips, we have family, friends and jobs to work. It is a very hard thing to just be still.

We live in a world of efficiency and achievement and the thought of just sitting still means nothing because we think if we just slow down a bit, we are not going to accomplish our goals and other people will just pass us so we just keep going and going and the problem with that is God has created to be relational beings—he wants to have a relationship with us and this demands three things;

✓ Our heart.
✓ Our time.
✓ Our energy.

When God created Adam and Eve, the bible recorded that he was walking in the garden with them. Jesus said, ‘Abide in me and I in you.’ and this is what we were created for, to have a deep relationship with our maker.

We all want to be independent and control our life. We don’t want to spend time getting to know God and be intimate with him because we have things to do.

This reminds me of James 4:14
whereas you do not know what will  happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
James 4:14 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/jas.4.14.NKJV.

That is how God describes our life, it is like a vapour it is there and suddenly it is gone, you have no idea of what the next hour holds. Even when you think you are in control of your life—you are not.

Try to spend time with God wants our attention (James 4:5)
It is not about what we do
It is about knowing him and loving him
We are living in no better time than now so wake up reunite with God—your first love. Quarantine with him

I am not saying we should sit around all day. God has called us to good work and that is what we need to do but he has not called us to do that work so hard that it takes away our relationship with him and the time that we spend with him.

God wants us to have so much security in him that is not dependent on how much you perform and how well you perform, how successful you are. He wants us to be so much secured that we no longer feel debt—there is so much joy and so much peace waiting on the other side of deep relationship with him.

There are so many things in our life that are out of our control, but something that is in our countrol is the decision that we make whether or not to seek a relationship with God every single day. It is a choice.

5 THINGS THAT CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY.

There are days where you are unhappy for no absolute reason.

There are times where happiness lasts only for a short period of time—you’re happy one minute and the next you are not. In this post, i share 5 things that make you happy or can switch your mood from a 0 to an 100.

Here are five things that can make you happy;

  • Be around people

Not just people, but people you love. Nothing good comes out from spending your time with toxic people—who only bring a lot of negative energy. Spending your time with people you love(non-toxic humans) brings a lot of positive energy which is just enough to light up your day.

  • Add happiness to your lifestyle.

Sometimes, you’re the one holding your self back from being happy. A day out at the park— spending time all by yourself watching a movie, listening music—could lift up your spirit.

  • Exercise

A really long walk with your earphones plugged in, should do. It could be jumping jacks also—you don’t necessarily need a stressful exercise. Walking for only 20-30 minutes a day could make you feel really good. Remember physical wellness equates to mental wellness.

  • Forgive/ don’t hold grudges.

Holding a grudge comes with this pain and darkness that can easily consume you. Negative emotions can be reason for your unhappiness which makes you consider resentment and thoughts of revenge. Forgive the other person—i know this is very easy to say or it might sound cliché. Forgiveness comes with peace of mind.

MY TOP 8 PET PEEVES.

Hi beautiful people! I hope you all are having a great day and trying live your best life in this period. Took me long enough to update my blog, IKR😪

In today post, I’ll be sharing my top 8 pet peeves.

WHAT IS A PET PEEVE?       (idiomatic) Something that is personally annoying; a personal dislike.

Oxford Dictionary

Everyone has different pet peeves because we are obviously humans with different lifestyle habits and different backgrounds.

ASKING QUESTIONS DURING A MOVIE.

You’re watching a movie with someone and then next twenty minutes into the movie they are asking you what happens next. We are both watching this movie for the first time. I didn’t direct this movie neither did come up with it. Let’s us all be calming down, for real.😂

SHOWING UP UNINVITED.

This might be an exception when it comes to some specific people and in some specific purposes. But I still feel like it is disrespectful to show up without informing the other person beforehand. Imagine planning out your day, then someone shows up uninvited when you’re about to get things done. Annoying right?

LOUD GUM SMACKING/ LOUD CHEWING.

I find this very irritating.

LATECOMERS

I hate it when people are always late. A lot of people deliberately do this without any genuine reason.

SLOW INTERNET

Special thanks to the network providers of Nigeria for doing a very good job regarding this.🙂

LIEBSTER AWARD!

Hi beautiful people, I’m back again with another blog post!

Donut is a supportive and amazing blogger.

Special thanks to Donut for nominating me for my first ever blogger award. Y’all should check out her blog for everything and anything you need to know about med school, faith—do follow her blog for inspiring posts.

WHAT IS THE LIEBSTER AWARD?

The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

https://theglobalaussie.com › the-liebster-award

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  5. Notify your nominees once you’ve uploaded your post.

MY ANSWERS TO DONUT’S QUESTIONS

1. Your all-time favorite book/movie?

My all-time favorite book is THE ROOKIE PIRATES

2. Iced coffee or milktea?

Milk tea

3. If you had the ability to turn back time, what time period would you return to? 

This is actually a difficult question to answer, because as a woman certain eras were not less than kind to a woman. There are still several that would be fascinating to choose from though.

I’d like to return to the 69 BC. This might sound weird to some people. I’d love to know Cleopatra and probably be in her court. I would love to witness it all first hand instead of reading about her on the internet—her intelligence, political preferences, her top skill in using people to reach her goal, abdher seductive prowess, intelligence, mannerisms, likability, politics & using people to reach her goal.

4. If you could swap lives with a celebrity for a day, who would it be?

Maya Angelou.

Maya lived a fulfilling life. I’d want to achieve a lot like her—if not more. She was a memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees.

5. If this pandemic never existed, what would you be doing right now?

I’d just be mainly focused on school—nothing more.

6. If you could get rid of one vegetable or fruit in the entire world, what would it be and why?

I don’t think I’d want to get rid of any vegetable or fruit in the entire world for now.

7. Name one musical instrument you’ve always wanted to learn how to play.

Guitar—i just started learning how to play it. I’m still trying to get my E minor chords right.

8. If you had the opportunity to make up a word and have it added to the dictionary, what would it be and what does it mean?

Menusis: A change in menu.
It doesn't make any sense lol.

9.Name 3 items from your wishlist.

Need: A new phone
Want: A new laptop
Want: New skincare products.

10. If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

It would still be Maya Angelou. I have so many questions to ask her.

11. Your life goals. Name at least two!

I want to be able to give to the less privileged. I hope to be a renowned pharmacist and blogger in the future.

If you have any questions for me. Feel free to leave a comment below. Please leave a random fact about you in the comment section also.

Hi beautiful people, welcome back to my blog. I hope y’all are doing well.

The past week wasn’t the best week for me. I felt unmotivated to do anything. Although, it is okay to unproductive sometimes. I was tired of everything—i took a break, changed locations, and even took longer walks but nothing really changed even though it helped a little.

Since the lockdown started—we haven’t been getting access to hugs not just hugs but people to share some certain things with.

A lot have been happening lately, there are so many things—we find hard to process. Even though, it is the new norm now.

Before the pandemic, we had distractions that never made us notice the new norm—school, friends, and work. A lot of us are confused, lost in the sea of humans on social media. Each time, something bad happens on social media—words fail us. I know it is not mandatory to talk because not everyone would be activists—not everyone can rant. We just can’t process why all these is happening.

Maybe this might never pass— like they say because it is already part of the norm. It may only reduce a bit then suddenly spring up again.

According to Urban dictionary, E-hug is usually an electronic image of a hug created by using common keyboard symbols. Commonly used to give the calming effects of a hug over the internet. The emblem is usually like this ‎(>O_o)> (o_O )

I know the past week has been a rough one for you and i. This is me sending you E-hugs. I hope i would get one back from you.

I know you are probably tired of hearing the same news everyday. You are probably tired of the recent reccurring events on the media. We are all tired and you are not alone.

Most times, taking a break helps temporarily—but when you go back. It starts again. It is a cycle that can never stop.

This is me sending you E-hugs.

I know E-hugs can’t be compared to the calming effect of a physical hugs. This is my way of checking up on you and telling not to lose yourself amidst it all. You are loved and God loves you even more.


If you need a buddy to talk to you can connect with me on my Twitter and my Instagram. Remember someone loves you. Stay sane and stay blessed.

E-HUGS? You earned some.

Is love really what they say it is?

Dear friends,

Welcome back to my blog. If you’re new to this blog, please do subscribe to get more enlightening posts by me.

Maybe love isn’t what they say it is. This is my love story, so grab a seat, you might be needing popcorns too lol.

My love story started when the creator of the universe decided to bless me with the greatest gift, which is life, of course.

My parents would say love was born on a cold, drizzling Saturday in July 14. Love came as a baby with the wildest hair and the most beautiful smile.

Your definition of love might be a feeling of intense attraction towards someone. Is love really based on attraction?

If you think Love is all about attraction towards the other person, then you are wrong. I don’t know if you have seen my disha page. If you haven’t you should check it out here. If you clicked on the link. You should be able to see my view on love there.

What is Love to me?

Unconditional love is the love God has for me. Sometimes, I feel like I don’t deserve this love even though I haven’t been the most grateful person be HE still shows up everytime.

Storge love is the love my parents have for me. Through the years, they have seen me struggle and fight but they never got tired of me.

Philia love is the love you have for me, yeah you! You’re my friend and I am happy you read up to this point. I love you!

All my life, I have always been scared to love.

What if they don’t love me back?

He/She doesn’t even rate me.

I didn’t have the smoothest childhood. I cried a lot. I craved for even a little bit of love. I realized early enough God’s love is the best, my parents love is better and your love is good.

In 2017, I received the most beautiful form of love from a stranger I never knew. If he had left me lying on the road maybe this blog wouldn’t have happened or I would have never met you.

Love is when, everyone in my life hype me up with positive words of affirmation.

My love story truly started when I started becoming grateful even for the seemingly little things.

The journey called love is continuous, it never ends.
