To change or not to change…

Severally, it crosses my mind how the Laurrie in secondary school and the Laurrie in university are in no way similar, but once in a while, a deep part of me wonders if that’s good or bad. Did I change for the better, or am I changing for the worse? About two years back, I…

Pushing the wall

I don’t really know who I’m reaching out to, but I know for sure that I can’t be the only one in this life that has ever lost so much respect for myself in the name of getting someone else’s attention, approval or yes, number­čśé. There are so many times when we get emotionally attached…

Don’t want it now, you’ll love it later…

Open your mind and imagine what I’m about to tell you. See yourself in a place you’re happy with those you love, having such a great time, laughing and sitting down outside in a comfortable environment, while the sun is out and everything is beautiful. This beauty seems too good to be true, and it…

From bleeding heart to bleeding brain Pt II

It was getting very dark. Thanks to the beautiful and efficient supply of power in Borno, as well as the abundance of fuel (I’m being highly sarcastic, if confused), there was no electricity to at least turn on a light bulb or charge a non-solar torch.

From Bleeding Heart to Bleeding Brain Pt 1.

There is something about mistakes that makes me ponder a little. Maybe it’s how inevitable they are; or how surprised people are when they happen.

There’s Nothing Hotter than a(n) F(igure) 9

Okay, this is about to be a very controversial blog post, and damn, it is so hard to come up with an intro for it. I dunno where to start from; should I explain how Figure 9 is actually hotter than Figure 8 first( because a figure 9 entails that the girl has even wider…

Screw the Society!

This life is full of sooooo much confusion. Should I try to look pretty or not? Should I try to lose weight or not? Should I care about fashion, should I put make up on, should I go to the gym? Should I change, even if it’s for the better? We are so used to…

HYPOCRITES

There are hypocrites everywhere Hypocrites here And of course hypocrites there In your presence they act like they care But at your back it’s very rare All you do is try to be good But at your back they eat you up like food Oh! Yes they are two sided And what they’ll do is…
