In Retrospect : “Day Of The Woman”

I started the day : A strong, independent, Nigerian woman —– having cake for breakfast. And I didn’t even bake it myself. My friend was baking a cake for someone’s birthday, and it’s a silent unspoken rule between us, that when she’d “level” the cake, I would have some of that.

As you well know, it’s not even close to healthy for breakfast, or any meal, but I was too lazy to make anything else. However, after a few mouthfuls of cake, I got introspective. Like, soul-out-of-body-look-at-your-life kinda introspective. And I’m thinking,

what am I doing? I’m totally going to feel awful after eating this. Bloated too.

So, I get out of my headspace and plan a get-together with my friends : let’s meet together and have dinner and window-shop. It would be fun. [It was.]

Highlights Of My Day :


The new additions to my window sill, and to my “green family”. I got them as “gifts” from Евроопт, a large chain grocery store, and i think they’re adorable. They came with pre-packaged soil and seeds, and planting instructions. I planted them in the morning, and prayed that I wouldn’t loose my green thumb this time around.


My first bowl of Miso soup. It was delicious. I’ve read about it a lot in manga, so actually having it was surreal. We couldn’t decide on what to order collectively, so we bought food from different stores and had a bit of everything : sushi, miso soup, french fries, wraps, cola, you name it.. (the picture does not do it justice).


My friends… + Zaynab (being the camera-lady). Literal balls of sunshine, and the most disloyal people ever (inside joke. They’re actually pretty cool)

I put together a “video” of sorts : literally scraps of pictures I loved, and I’m just going to leave it here (below)…

I hope your day was as fun, as my breakfast cake was delicious
