Hello, you nice person who has stopped by to read random thoughts about important and unimportant stuff. 😚

How are you doing today? I know you’re great. I’m good too, just tired from the Met Gala after party where I hung out with my friends, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. 😌

You know about the Met Gala yeah? It has occurred on the first Monday of May since 1948 in New York city. It is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York city. more info.

Everyone looked fabulous, some more extra than others. How did I look? You can’t say you didn’t notice me and my date…😂😂😂

Who else just looks at school and goes “I just wanna graduate”. It gets tiring. Really. Most times, you just wish that it could be fun all through. Exam season is fast approaching and I’ll soon start awoko (reading at night) cos I need it. Seriously. I’m just envious of my roommate. She’s currently on her I. T and she isn’t writing second semester exams. Sigh.

But hey..

Do you ever feel like people expect so much from you? 😭😭 Like, there’s this image you have to conform to at all times and this reputation you have to protect, especially when you think about your parents, your relatives and even younger ones who look up to you.

You find it hard to step out of line because so much is expected and you cannot afford to disappoint anyone. When you think about the responsibilities you are saddled with, the things you’ve had to give up just to conform your life in a manner that is acceptable and the ‘fun’ things you can’t engage in or when you’re in a position to do some kind of stuff and you’re like “the only thing that’s stopping me right now is the fear of God, home training, and the people that are watching”. 😑

I know most times you just want to relax and be like “what gives?” You’re probably comparing yourself to someone else and you’re like “what about him or her?”, “why must my own be different?” 😭

It gets hard and sometimes you just wish that you didn’t have to answer for your actions. I know.

But you’ll be fine. You’ll be okay. You’re strong and the fact that people expect so much from you is the reason you cannot afford to disappoint so just live your life in the best way possible, pleasing God, without double standards, no matter how hard it gets because MUCH IS EXPECTED! Especially to whom much is given. 😏

Meanwhile, there’s every possibility that you may not hear from me till June or July ‘cos of exams but keep my words of wisdom in your hearts and let them guide you. Okay?


‘ Ruona ❤️


Who can relate to this?

Would you like to share your thoughts on this?

I wasn’t really at the Met Ball. You’ve probably figured that out by now. 😂

I really hope I’d get to go one day.


My name is Oseruona Asak, but I'll let you call me ‘Ruona. I haven't found the perfect words to describe me yet but I’m very passionate about those things that are close to my heart, including sharing my thoughts with you.

  1. Call me a goodie-two-shoes but I don’t think it’s a bad thing that we have restrictions in our lives. They help us keep up with God’s standards most times. The only problem we would have with these restrictions is that sometimes, we end up not being ourselves because we’re concerned about what other people think. So yeah, we should always remember not to live in double standards while living the way God would approve
