Birthday Trip to Catalina Island: Part 1

THIRTY. YEARS. OLD. Wow!! This is a huge milestone especially for women. I expected life to be quite different at thirty from my current reality. The whole cliche of having settled down with a husband, at least one child and stable career. But to be honest, I haven’t had the most vanilla cookie cutter life.Continue reading “Birthday Trip to Catalina Island: Part 1”

Quarantine Chronicles: Local and Regional Travel

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: 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: 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: 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”

Quarantine Chronicles: Present Plans

Present plans…a bit of an oxymoron isn’t it? By nature I am an explorer. I’ve always been curious, always been adventurous, always been a bit of a busy body. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve also become a homebody, can be a bit of couch potato; a loner. I’ve realized that I’m the type of personContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Present Plans”

Quarantine Chronicles: Past Plans

In the words of Alanis Morissette, “life has a funny way of sneaking up on you…life has a funny way of helping you out”. Her song Ironic has been one of the songs on replay in my head. Majority of last year I was unemployed and couldn’t really afford to travel anywhere. I was evenContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Past Plans”

A Stay At Callaway Gardens

70 degree weather in December?! Thank God I went south for the winter! I had two weeks of brilliant weather in the 60s and 70s in Georgia. Unfortunately, I caught the flu a day after I arrived, AND then got bronchitis. At this moment I’m still battling the bronchitis. After Christmas, my family and IContinue reading “A Stay At Callaway Gardens”
