Because how does he know something’s not “giving”?

2022

Hey, you. I’m calling my bosses out because they thought it was cool to raise my hopes about World Garri Day. They did a whole tweet, but who’s working today? Every darn person at Zikoko!

If you see Ruka and Dwin outside, tell them Tife sent you to tell them it’s on sight.

ABROAD LIFE

The Inside Gist: It Was Difficult Moving Back to Canada, But I’m Better Now

[Since I already chose violence today, I’m calling David out too. Please, help me beg him to stop throwing me VNs when I try to do amebo with him.]
David, it’s a good thing you’re my fave. Or else. Anyways, how do you feel about this week’s Abroad Life?

Sorryyy. About the story, I really enjoyed the interview. If you notice, it’s longer than recent Abroad Life episodes and that’s because this subject told me at the beginning of the interview that she loves talking. She even apologised for it but it was great because it was such an enjoyable conversation.

Also, she’s now on my #EatTheRich list because I can’t imagine my father buying me a 5-bedroom house in Canada because I got pregnant. If I get pregnant, my father would simply disown me and not re-own me back.

LMAO. But this loneliness everybody is talking about, I’m pretty confident I’ll survive. You couldn’t pay me to go out, most days.

See, I just found that Canada is the second largest country in the world and the population is just twice that of Lagos. The weather is another huge factor in this loneliness thing. I promise you, when the cold enters your body, you’ll look for company.
