I have a mini rant before I get to the point of this blog post. And seeing as this is a blog, my blog, these are my opinions. If you don’t agree, that’s cool. You can continue reading, skip this rant and proceed to the rest of the post, read a completely different post, orContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Local and Regional Travel”

Quarantine Chronicles: A Trip to Holland…Michigan

How I wish to be able to visit Europe! But alas, the borders are closed to Americans AND Nigerians. Talk about a double whammy for me! So as I continue to travel locally, I decided to add Holland, Michigan to my lists of destinations. As you may or may not know, I lived in theContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: A Trip to Holland…Michigan”

Quarantine Chronicles: Sunset at Grand Haven

I need to go back to Grand Haven! I need to go back when it’s not crowded with 4th of July vacationers. I need to go back when it’s not during a pandemic. I’m glad I went but to be honest, traveling to a popular destination during its peak season in the middle of aContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Sunset at Grand Haven”

Quarantine Chronicles: 4th of July 2020

Below is from my observations and opinions based on my social media circle of influence. Imagine me thinking out loud: This past weekend the “United” States of America celebrated it’s independence day. With the current climate of racial tension and societal injustice, this year’s celebration was…interesting. In the 21st century, America being a melting potContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: 4th of July 2020”

Quarantine Chronicles: Throwback to Dauphin Island, Alabama

Sweet home Alabama!! Here’s an easy breezy read for you. I talk a lot a crap about Alabama, but in all actuality, the state has beautiful hidden gems. I remember when I announced that I was moving to Alabama, most responses alluded to racism, lynching etc. I’m grateful such talk did not dissuade me becauseContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Throwback to Dauphin Island, Alabama”

Quarantine Chronicles: Conversations With A Friend

Relationships are a sensitive subject for me. I find relationships to be extremely important in my life. When it comes to family, they pretty much are my lifeline. As far as romantic relationships, I’ve only had one boyfriend in my adult life. It technically only lasted a couple months. But we had a complicated friendshipContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Conversations With A Friend”

Quarantine Chronicles: Journey To The Past

Singing “Journey to the paaaaast“. Such an awesome song from an awesome movie; Dreamwork’s Anastacia. Since being home, I have taken it upon myself to de-clutter the entire house, from the bottom up. In doing so, I have found myself through a portal to a past life. An escape from the statistics being fed byContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Journey To The Past”

Quarantine Chronicles: Cooking to bridge cultures

So, we’re still staying at home. Insert unenthusiastic yay! While I’ve been at home I’ve been cooking more than ever. Mostly because I can’t afford to occasionally order from DoorDash or GrubHub. I can’t even be mad because it’s been great for my diet and body. I adopted a flexitarian diet which basically means majorityContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Cooking to bridge cultures”

Quarantine Chronicles: Community

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I ran away to Atlanta for the sake of my sanity. I was struggling mentally and spiritually while living alone during the Stay At Home Order in Michigan. Not only was I missing face to face interaction, I felt like my purpose had been taken away fromContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Community”

Quarantine Chronicles: Future Plans

Ah, future plans. Another grammatical faux pas; redundancy. But I had to keep the consistencies in the post titles of this series. So what does the future hold? Are everyday people making actual plans these days? I understand the lack of desire to not, but I hope so. This current situation is temporary. Everyone shouldContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Future Plans”
