An empty vessel;

That’s what I’ve been feeling like since I learnt that I could never have children.

My womb was damaged, they said.

Only, it’s not just my womb. It’s me.

I’m a damaged woman.

I will never be able to do the one thing I grew up looking forward to.

I will never feel the joy of holding my own baby to my chest.

I will never look at anybody and think “I birthed that one”

That joy in calling someone mine and knowing;

That indeed, they are mine.

Growing up as an only child, I always wanted a daughter

I yearned for the days when I’d relieve my youth days to her

The 8 Types of Annoying Relative (And Tips to Help You Avoid Them)

I recently stumbled upon this, and thought to share. Lol. Enjoy.

Reasonably Ludicrous

Yesterday, I was at my faculty, chatting with a senior colleague. (I’m a 100 Level Student of Law at Obafemi Awolowo University)
And after I made a statement about not being so enthusiastic about Law, he said “You’re either Melancholy or Phlegmatic.” I said, “Phleg…PhlegMel actually.” And then he said, “Whoa, sorry, that combination is not so good.”
I wasn’t offended, because I quite agree with him. The Melancholy and Phlegmatic temperaments are legendary for their procrastination, laziness and lack of motivation, so imagine what someone with both temperaments would be like. X_X
I really am lazy, and so many times, during lectures on the only law course I offer presently, I ask myself, “Dunni, what are you doing here, really?” But then, the reply is, “If not here, where else would I be?” I really don’t know what other course I could have offered if not Law. Even if…

Erm… I swear I had this absolutely epic intro on my mind last night. Oh well.
So, about this blog. It’s basically just anything that comes to mind. Actual events… raging… ranting… Oh, and the (not-so) occasional cool story. There.
