I’m just going to assume I’m talking to myself now because it’s been almost two years since I posted and if we are being honest, four years since I was consistent at this. Right, what has happened since October 30, 2018? Well, lots (not really), let’s get into it.
The year is 2020 and there’s a PANDEMIC. Yeap, a highly infectious virus called “Coronavirus/COVID” is rampaging the whole world. This means the most fun anyone can have this year is to stay alive. I’m still alive hence this blog post. We now greet each other with phrases like “Stay healthy”; “Stay safe” and “Stay masked”.
Right, moving on from the pandemic. I moved countries (again). So, let’s do a little recap. From Nigeria to England to Nigeria and now, to Canada. Phew! What interesting times! Anyways, I settled in Vancouver, B.C. Canada is made up of provinces and cities (not states), so that’s taking a while to get used to. So why did I move? That’s a story for another blog post (ooooh, the suspense LOL)
Oh my gosh, I almost forgot. I wrote a book. Yes! A book called “NOW, WE UNLEARN”. It is a collection of poetry about the things I experienced personally and things I experienced through others. It was really difficult to write these things, but I’m glad I did. If you’re in Nigeria and you wanna buy one, send me a DM via my Instagram (@TomilolaVanna). If you’re outside Nigeria, you can buy it via Amazon Kindle.
What next? I don’t know. The blogging world is very unforgiving. Once you disappear for a while, it’s hard to come back. People expect you to monetize it (which isn’t bad, but just way too much pressure) and people demand consistency. I’m not great with that. Also, I’m such a different person from the person I was when I started this blog and I don’t know if you’ll like the new me, but I’m gonna put myself out there and see what happens. Maybe I’ll fail at this (such is life) or maybe someone else other than me will read this every once in a while.
Lots of love
