Remember Me?

7 months. 7 months is a long time to go without publishing. How could I have stayed away for so long? Circumstances. Circumstances beyond my control. I wasn’t even gone for this long when my phone was stolen in 2017 before I published “Phone-Napped”.

I feel like I have to re-introduce myself and this space again so hi, I’m ‘Ruona. I love sharing my thoughts with you here on Ruonaahsculture. You’d find everything from my personal stories to why I think we should sell Nigeria on eBay – I know, I have weird thoughts sometimes.

‘Ruona until I change my name or something.

If you’re new here, welcome to my little corner of the Internet. This place is filled with positive vibes only. If you’re a regular reader of my blog and have been wondering where I’ve been, I’m back now, and I’ve missed sharing my thoughts with you. I was heartbroken at not being able to post for such a long time, but I had so many other things to attend to. I’m back, and I won’t leave you hanging, I promise.

A lot has happened and I’ll tell you about them in future posts, but here are some highlights:

  • I now live in Gombe State because the Federal Government of Nigeria felt that I should explore the North. Me that wanted to go to Lagos to chill with the big boys? Lol.
  • I’ve begun to find myself doing adult things like paying bills and planning. Nobody told me that it was this hard. God has been faithful.
  • I lost my Granny, the only Grandparent I ever knew. It still feels so unreal.
  • If you’re looking for someone to award “Best in traveling”, look no further except you know someone that has spent more than two days on the road.
  • I hosted my very first writing challenge on Instagram and it was a success.
  • I’ve made mistakes and learned lessons. I’m beginning to see life for what it really is.
  • I’ve met nice people and made friends. I don’t take them for granted.

Let’s just say that life happened and I’m not the same person I was 7 months ago. I hope you’re ready for Ruonaahsculture ‘cos she’s not going anywhere.

No seriously, are you ready?

No More Sad Songs

Listening to the song by Little Mix that’s the same as the title of this blog post.

It’s 12:39 am and I didn’t think there’d be a blog post today because I didn’t want to write. I did not feel like writing at all. Why? This week wasn’t my best week. I was sad for most of it and if I wasn’t sad, I was angry, moody, or just numb.

I was happy on some days too but the sadness trumped it all. This week was fast for me so I guess it’s a good thing because imagine if the week was any longer. I’ve been reading a novel that I’d finish in two days under normal circumstances since Saturday and I’m still not done. It’s been a roller coaster of emotions and I don’t know what to make of it. The new playlist I made isn’t even helping matters. I titled it mood. Sigh.

Is this song speaking to me?

Anyway, I think this whole thing started last Saturday when people kept texting to tell me that they couldn’t open the site to my last blog post and it was devastating because I worked so hard for you to see it. I didn’t get much feedback and considering how much I love reading and replying to comments, it messed me up.

If you didn’t get to read my last blog post on gossip and suicide, it’s right here: The Gossip Queen.

This is where I should tell you that “I’m better now” and drop lines like “you’ll be fine” and “don’t let the sadness consume you” but LOL. I’m taking malaria drugs in the midst of all of these so I don’t exactly have any motivational quotes to give.

On the bright side, I’ve been thinking about how my book will be made into a movie. I haven’t started writing the book yet.

Listening to Girls Like You by Maroon 5. I was low key expecting the universe to give me a song that will resonate with this blog post on a deep level but oh well…

It’s 12:58 am.

I’ll be fine.

Love,

‘Ruona. ❤️

PS:

How was your week?
