Recently I have had a lot that’s kept me away from blogging. Even though I had loads of content, just sitting and scheduling had been an issue.
Did I tell you I have started my journey to being called to Bar in Nigeria? All I can say is that it has been an experience! I have also decided to lose 10kg in 11 months. For inspiration and motivation, I placed bets with a couple of people on how much I can lose by the end of 2020.
Now the Covid-19 has disrupted everyone’s lives. My imagination has been running wild. I’ve also been talking to friends and scaring myself witless trying to read up on every single information (the good, the bad and the ugly) I could find.
Nigeria, where I currently reside, has new cases every day. I live in Lagos State where our Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and his team have been working very hard educating the public on coronavirus and precautions, providing palliatives to cushion the effect of the lockdown and constant briefing on the number of cases and tests administered.
My dramatic self, I had bought some masks, gloves and hand sanitizers since January and prayed and wished that Africa was safe. That was well before all schools and places of worship were closed, including all tertiary institutes; meaning no more classes for me. So I thought I was prepared and calm.
I am now stuck at home, self-isolating. Never would I have imagined the world as it is now. Citizens looking up to government to perform its basic duties and responsibility of ensuring safety and security regardless of who is in power or who was to ‘blame’.
My path to sanity has been to pray and commit myself and my loved ones to God. I now try to meditate at least once a day and just feel God’s calmness, read novels, attempt some school work, blog and social media crawling.
Remember to hydrate. Stay safe and sound indoors.
