Visiting my hometown for the first time| New Edubiase, Ghana

it’s been ages and yes, i miss my blog but i can’t promise consistency for now sigh. i just want to share photos of my latest trip with the remaining blogger friends i have (i still love you guys). here we go

well i visited the land of my fathers. and it felt really surreal because it was my first time taking a trip to any of the towns my parents come from. my dad is from New Edubiase and that’s where he was raised. it was weird to meet family members i had never seen or heard of before. basically, it was out of this world for me. the landscape is so different from what i’m used to. the clouds felt closer and all the mountains and trees made me want to stay longer.

Africa is all the bad things you say it is| Photos by J. Adoosey

When Trump was said to have referred to African countries as shithole countries, many Africans agreed with him. So many Ghanaians on twitter were quick to run their mouths about how terrible living conditions in Ghana are. Some went to the extent of attacking well-meaning Ghanaians who wanted to go against the stereotype and show the positive part of Africa that the foreign media refuses to show. So okay o, yes. It’s true.

So much has changed within the past 6 months

enlightenment.jpg

For a long time, I’ve been trying to get a blog layout that represents me. I mean, one that I can always be proud of and beat my chest about. Honestly, I thought I wouldn’t get there. I’ve changed my blog’s appearance so many times, I’ve actually lost count. I’m not saying my blog is flawless now but I’m so satisfied and very happy with the way it looks. I asked my friends for their opinions and even though they didn’t seem as impressed as I was, I was content.

I’ve been going through my old blog posts and it made me realise how much I’ve grown. I’m referring to growth when it comes to what I believe in and what I stand for as a person. I see how I’ve gone from being my conservative self to this very liberal free-spirit. I don’t have any problem with people being conservative because I’ve been there. It just amazes me how different my posts are today from how they were just 6 months ago. I’ve changed and I’m happy with the change because it means I’m learning. And I can’t wait to learn some more and improve to become a better person.

Keez My Kak|A short true story

condom.jpg

I never expected this to happen tonight. I mean, we were supposed to go to the beach, chew some khebabs and bask in the glory of the sunset whilst taking a few pictures pretending to be having the time of our lives. Easy. But no, fate laughed its ass off and now here I am rubbing a married manโ€™s dick. Surprised? Me too. Soooo where do I start from? Maybe I should start from where a guy I had just met was telling me about how his ex was also called Adoma. And, by the way, she is dead. Or I should start from the starting itself? Continue reading

How to Glow Up!| Improving Your Life This 2018

sparkler-677774__480.jpg

Okay now, I’m no beautician and I myself need a little bit of glowing up to do. However, I can tell you very confidently that I’ve had a fair share of omg-would-you-look-at-this-melanin-goddess moments of self-love. After high school, I really prayed for a major glow-up. I mean a did-she-just-descend-from-the-heavens kind of glow up. You know, one that will hit all those who knew me in my ugly duckling years. Hold on though, I think I’ve had the best of both the worlds of the ugly and that of the gorgeous.

RESPECT PEOPLE’S PERSONAL SPACES|Sexual Harassment+My experience

touching fingers.jpg

Ugh a part of me really doesn’t want to do this. Another part of me is cheering me on with some heated jama. And then there’s a little part of me that is spectating and cringing as I continue to type. This is going to be a bit long but I promise it will be interesting. Anywayyyy, I’m doing this so cheers!

I’m actually uncomfortable typing this because of some personal experience I have to share. Since sexual abuse and harassment are very serious and sensitive topics, I’m going to try to relax the atmosphere because my blog is where you come to chill. There’s no uptight-ness on this side. Tsk Continue reading

A Ghanaian snack and a pinch of inspiration|Coconut chips review

19.01.18

Hello fellow citizens of earth! *cringe*

So I went to the Accra mall with my mum to buy a couple of things because a kind soul gave her a gift voucher last December. And as the old saying goes, ‘The fact that you have a gift voucher shouldn’t force you to visit the store. You just need to wait till it’s convenient for you.’ Therefore, my mum waited until she needed to visit my grandma then passed by the mall to utilize her gift voucher since it’s on the way to my Nana’s house. I just made the saying up but you get the drift, right?

I thought I was going to die| Life Update: Part 1

It’s been a while since I posted on my blog. Don’t worry, I’m not going to apologize and give excuses as usual. Here’s the first part of a series I’m going to start to update you on what’s been happening to me.

I’m sure the title made you worried. If it did, thanks for caring. If it didn’t, that’s okay. Anyway, I’m also sure this is going to be old news for my Ghanaian readers. For other readers, sit back and get comfortable because I’m going to give you all the gists from the inside, yep yep.

Comfortable? Here we go…

So it was a normal Saturday like all other Saturdays. I was in my bed in my hostel room using my phone as usual when we all heard it. I don’t know how to describe the sound. I think it was a loud BANG! And then darkness followed, I kid you not. My roommate, Maygrace, was in the upper bunk of our bed when she started whispering my name.

Adoma?

Adoma?

Are you still there? Continue reading

Now hold your horses, people. It was totally unintentional. Let me tell you about how the first one happened. Continue reading
