My Beautiful Christmas Present.

Dear DAB Readers,

It's the day after boxing day. The sister and I slept in her very tiny bed and it's the best I have slept in a long time, strangely enough. How are you feeling? I hope we're all happy and had someone to hug and kiss and laugh with. Bless.
Books with love.

The Art of Letter-Writing And My Father's Lost One.

Dear DAB Readers,

It's a lovely Monday afternoon and I'm a little panicky. Not because it's a Monday, but because I have a major deadline in two days, and every time I look at the piece, my heart stops for a second. It is nowhere near ready and it is scary. Anyway, how are you doing?

London, Love, Laughter and Some God Damn Piercings.

Dear DAB Readers,

It's that time of the month when I wear grumpy like a winter coat and stick both hands deep in the side pockets. I am one with grumpy right now. Grumpy is my middle name. You do not want to cross me at this time of the month.

From Manchester, With Love And Bum.

Dear DAB Readers,

Love and light to you and yours.

I have recently observed that early breakfast isn't exactly my calling. Let me explain myself. So between the hours of 7 and 11am, I am completely unhungry (Unhungry is a word in the DAB dictionary). Once it's 11:30am down, I feel like I might pass out if I don't eat something. While it is okay for my body to have a mind of her own, the unfortunate thing is that at 11:30am, I am most likely not at home and as such, do not have access to my fridge. You might say, how about buy something and eat? You see, that is the point, I cannot afford to just BUY something and eat. Everything I BUY at the moment, is calculated. Haha! Anyway, I have turned myself to a toddler and have taken ownership of my body and appetite. When money is not in abundance, you advise and discipline yourself.
Peace and bum be with you all!

My Super Duper Graduation Ceremony.

Dear DAB Readers,

Love and light to you and yours. I have been away from my blog, our blog. I don't even know why. Sometimes, I'm just not very enthusiastic about things I would ordinarily light up about, you see. But I'm here, alive.
Master of Arts!

Cursed With Rape by Chioma Ndu.

Dear DAB Readers,


Chioma Ndu is a twenty-five year old girl who looks nothing like she has been through.  She now loves life. She has learned to believe in love and kindness.  She has a special place in her heart for kind people.  She hopes to write about her life someday, or share her life experiences verbally. She since learned to always try. She hardly gives up on anything.
She never thought she would get to a point in her life where she would need no validation from a second party. She is impressed with herself. She is here and it feels like home. Hear Her…

Breathe

Dear DAB Readers,
I have been offline for a while now, I still am. I thought to share with you today the first piece I wrote when I arrived England. I have written some letters to a sister in Nigeria after this piece, about my subsequent observations and experiences, and I hope I get to share them at some point.
Thank you for the emails and love and kind words, I appreciate. And although I may not have responded, please know that you have my love.
This is a long read, but I hope it would be worth it.

I Stumbled Upon A Palm-Reader.

Dear DAB Readers,

Love and light to you and yours. It's been smooth and tough. Some days have been wonderful and other days, my phone was too heavy to lift. But I am in a good place now. Right this moment, as I type this, I am happy. I'm to trying, everyday, to consciously live in the now; to be present; to see people around me; to smile more; to love more; to give more; to think more about the beautiful things; to dwell on the beauty of life.
Hi Honey!

I Write What I Choose To Write, Darlings.

Dear DAB Readers,

Love and light to you and yours. I hope we're all breathing and loving? I've been so unbelievably stressed out, but the love I'm surrounded by is greater.
I don't know that girl behind me
