I am an opinionated Nigerian who manages to hope, despite numerous evidence to the contrary, that better days are ahead for all Nigerians. I love to engage in lively dialogue, so feel free to throw whatever you’ve got at me. I can handle it … Scout’s honour. Also, I am a humanist, closet film critic, reader, spare-time-writer, romantic-ish, human who believes that the world will turn a little more smoothly if everyone does what I say. Wow!!! World domination. That would be … interesting.
Now that I have shed some insight on who I am, it will only be fair that I talk a little bit about why I do this.
Why I do this: I have a lot to say about the state of things in Nigeria and the world in general, so what better way to say whatever I want to say than to have my very own personal blog where I will not be bound by other people’s idiosyncrasies. More importantly, I want to be a part of the conversation that is going on among the youth on the ways to make Nigeria a greater nation. I want to be a part of the change that occurs.
What I hope to achieve: I want this blog to serve as a sort of journal for my thoughts. It will be an archive of opinions that I can look back on ten years from now and see how much I have evolved as an individual. Also, if I can reach even just one individual with my updates, I would have contributed my quota to society. Moreover, I want people to challenge and question my beliefs. I cannot evolve as an individual unless I hold my beliefs up to scrutiny.
Challenges I may Face: I am a procrastinator and a professional non-committer. It will be difficult for me to regularly devote the time necessary to run this blog, but I am teaching myself discipline. I may stumble and fall, but I promise that I will at least give it my best.
To My Readers: I love you.
