Last week was my passing out parade! From July last year till now, I have been serving my country through a scheme called NYSC. Every Nigerian graduate is forced into a regimented camp for 3 weeks in different parts of the country and has to work most times without pay or with very little in the state deployed to, after camp for a year. Nysc involves Nigerian graduates below 30 years dedicating a year after graduation to serving the country.
Yesterday, I was at a wedding party when a little girl of about 3 (I think) tugged at my gown and wanted me to carry her. I looked up and saw her father smiling and gesturing that I could carry her. She is a cute baby; she smelt of coconut oil and vanilla extract so I didn’t put her down even when my arms started to ache.
So, it has been a year our president has been elected into office and six months since food prices started increasing, especially tomatoes. I miss tomatoes, guys. I love tomatoes, I used to eat tomatoes without caution. In fact, it was formerly part of my skincare but I haven’t eaten tomatoes since April talk less about applying of applying to my face. 😢
