Bookie Life Update

I hope you’ve been staying warm, safe and productive. Today makes it 18 days to my Bar Finals. I’ve been buried in books. I still take time to do my daily routine; sleeping, hydrating, listening to music, reading fiction as rewards, talking with loved ones, eating healthy, rubbing Ewa, my stuffed kitty above, saying self affirmations and prayers. I did my Portfolio assessment on Thursday. Congratulations to other law school students who excelled at theirs also. I can’t wait for my exams to be over.

Christine and the Queens has been my favourite discovery in July. I love her voice and French Pop music. Check out Comme Si, 5 Dollars, La Marcheuse and her feature on Charli XCX’s Gone.

TIERs Nigeria has released Season 4 of UnTold Facts that shares informative discussions on Queer rights and other issues hosted by Arit Ekpo. Watch Digital Security and the Queer Nigerian and maybe catch up on older videos.

Reading

I’ve finished reading Lakiriboto Chronicles which turned out to be so much more than just a family drama!A multilayered book on resilience and hope. It touched on so many issues like sexuality (queerness and BDSM kinks), mental disorders, sexual abuse, crime and blackmail, Yoruba orishas, large Nigerian families, cultural beliefs, societal expectations and women. etc. I binge read The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Expect mini reviews of these sensational queer fiction.

Stories

Have you read my latest flash stories, Multiple Bloom and Sweet Joy.

  1. Color Purple has been on my tbr list for a long time. I don’t know when I will read it though. Maybe your mini review will spur me.
    Great write up by the way and best of luck on your finals.
