Intense Meetings, Beautiful Culture & Exciting Visits! Nigerian Common Futures Conversations Reps share their Experience in Addis Ababa
I can’t wait to share the fun part of our trip. What is it they say again about traveling? Yes, the best stories and memories in life can be found between the pages of your passport. Thankfully, the intense meetings were punctuated with memorable visits and informal activities.
I had a roommate who called her mom every twenty seconds. Every time we went out on a very exciting journey before we jumped into our room she would be on the phone, talking all hour-long to her family. Telling them all about her day. Sometimes I found it trying, but beyond, it made me make a decision to put a higher value on my family.
I lived in Calabar all my life and Lagos was a thrilling place to want to travel to! So, I took up a job and worked for some money. Saved part of it for my Lagos trip and used part for my upkeep, but you know how it is na, before I knew it I had almost eaten up everything I’d saved.
Never be afraid to try new positive things and never be afraid to make mistakes! Only remember to rise again. And finally build your character, ethics and integrity.
So dear graduate, as you thread excitedly out of the safe spaces of the university into the real world, I sure am saying to you, welcome to the real world! Please build yourself and never forget that the sky can be your foundation – only if you want it to.
… In that moment, I felt like the spoon was too tiny because I just wanted to have all that delicious creamy goodness in my mouth. All of it, all at once!”
I had heard a lot about Creamieland but had never been there. Each time I go to a new restaurant or hangout spot, the first thing I want to check out is the icecream and so it was a yes when CalabarBlog asked me to do a review of Creamieland’s creamy icecream.
What if tomorrow never comes? What if I could have this moment for life? I thought again as I scooped him into my arms.
“Nothing my hunny-bunny-big-boy,” I replied. “I was just thinking about how I missed you so much today.” I kissed his forehead as we giggled our way into the house.
It annoyed her whenever someone associated her with Asa. Maybe, it could’ve been flattering, but when people began to do it a lot she felt like a wannabe. It just happened that she wore dreads, and that she wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Asa wasn’t the only female musician in the world with dreads and a guitar.
During my first mentoring relationship, I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted. I wanted to play the guitar better (yes I’m a fabulous guitarist), to know how to publish books and write better. My first mentor was and is still a very amazing lady, Esther Eshiet. Under her mentorship, I started Blankpaperz.
