My Mum Misses Me 💜

Since I gained admission into the university, this is the first time I’m staying back at school and not traveling home for the holidays. This is a change in my routine and although I miss home, I really like it here ‘cos I’m just chilling and doing nothing except working on my project ‘cos it’s the main reason I stayed behind in the first place. Honestly when it comes to chilling in your own space with food, electricity, data and movies, there is no argument that it’s a safe space and with the stress of exams, it’s exactly what I needed. The only disadvantage right now is that the guys in my lodge have managed to successfully convince me to become their cook. 😂 It’s all part of the fun anyways.

Pree the fine girl 😌💜

Currently listening to Nobody by Dj Neptune, Joeboy and Mr. Eazi. Update your playlist dears.

Now, where was I? Okay I was talking about the holidays. When you’re in 100 level, there’s every tendency that you’ll be rushing to go home after exams (and honestly, when you eventually get used to the school system, you’ll be wondering what used to chase you to the house). Don’t get me wrong tho’, there’s no place like home and most times, we tend to miss our family but as we get older, we gradually begin to become independent hence our reluctance to rush home immediately after exams.

I’m not in 100 level anymore.

My mum misses me. She told me to come home and honestly I’d have gone but I have so much work to do and the holiday is pretty short so I just decided to stay back and be useful to myself. I miss you too mummy, I’m coming. The perks of having cool parents like I have is that they understand my reasons for making some decisions and they totally support me except they feel like there’s a better option. Some of my friends were surprised that I stayed back and some of them were like “their family will not hear of it”. 😂 I don’t exactly blame those families because some of us actually need to be threatened before we go back home. Others are begged to come home while others are handed an ultimatum: “I want to see you at home by Friday” and who are you to say you’re not going home? 😂

I’m not trying to snitch on anyone 🌚 especially not myself but we know that most of us that don’t go home during holidays don’t go home for other reasons that are not school related 🌚🌚🌚. I’m stopping here abeg 😂😂😂 All I’m going to say is that you should be good. That’s all. That’s all oh. End of story.

Moving on, my birthday is exactly a week from today and I don dey old 😫😂. I was beginning to feel like I did last year when I was scared about entering my 20s because I was basically IN BETWEEN choices and feeling like I hadn’t achieved enough but then I told myself that if I was able to survive this past year, I’d survive anything. I was listening to Hillsong’s 2013 album, We are Young and Free yesterday and I could relate to most of the lyrics of the song and I realized how faithful God has been.

Hair, Makeup & Photography by Padora Morr

I had a makeover today, guys. If you know me, you’ll know how much I love makeup but you won’t catch me on it because I honestly cannot draw perfect brows or do anything makeup related so you only see me like this once in three or four months. This particular makeover is a birthday present from my friend and course mate, Padora Morr. You can check her Instagram here. She was so nice and she entertained all my gists. She also kept saying “dooh girl”. She basically turned me into a princess!

One more 💜

These were supposed to be pre-birthday pictures but they leaked already because my friends can’t be trusted smh. I’m dreading the ugly pictures they’re going to upload on my special day 😫

I just realized that I didn’t say a proper hello when I started and I’m sorry. I really hope you’re good ‘cos I’m doing great. I told you I was going to be back to remind you about my birthday and that’s exactly what I came to do. Now, I’m going to make myself useful. Till next time, everyone.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

You Don’t Rate Me 😏

You don’t rate me sha. If I should think about the amount of insult and disrespect you’ve brought to my name, I wouldn’t even be around you. I mean, what gives?
No, how do you expect me to feel? You toss me out of your mouth all the damned time and you’re not sincere about me. Do you think I’m like her? No babe, check well. I’m totally 1Cor. 13 and she’s the opposite! You know this so don’t you dare lie to me.

One would think that once you’d found me, you’d change and you’d eventually take me seriously but I’ve been wishing hopelessly because it’s obvious that you’re out to to shame me. I don’t even understand how you can paint her to look like me when it’s obvious that she’ll never be me. It’s like they’ve sworn for you. Yeah, they have. Those wicked village people of yours have decreed that you’ll never take me seriously, you’ll never appreciate me. Shame.

It’s no secret that you’ve used me for deceptive purposes, battered me with lies, caused me to lose my value in the eyes of people because of your unfaithfulness. They basically think I’m her now. There’s no difference anymore and it hurts. Why can’t you see me for me? Why can’t you present me the way I am? Why is it so difficult for you?

Just tell me what it is that you want. If you wanna be with me, be with me. If you’re choosing her, let me know but don’t confuse yourself or confuse people because I am done with this game.
Sincerely, if being with me is so hard, let me go but stop hurting people in my name because it isn’t fair and I can’t take it anymore.
So dear, choose. Yes, I said choose. Choose if you wanna be with LOVE or LUST ’cos I’m way more than all this and you’re gonna rate me.

Heeeeyyyy everyone!! Thank you for reading up to this point. In fact, thank you for sticking with Ruonaahsculture because guess what?! I am back like I never left!! Okay, I know I left but I had exams and if you’ve been keeping up with me, you’d find that I mentioned it in my previous post. Haven’t read it yet? Please click What’s Your Passion?

Meanwhile, just in case you didn’t totally get the raving and ranting above, I was trying to create a scene where someone was cheating on love with lust. You see, it’s common practice these days because people tend to clothe lust in love, totally disregarding the qualities of love itself and settling for lust instead. If you ask most people in relationships why they’re in love with their partners, you’d be amazed at the things you’d hear. I mean, how do you love someone because he or she has money or is fine or has dimples? Lol. What happened to the things inside that make up the person? Those ones are just ’jara’, really.
I know we’re learning every time and no relationship is perfect but it is what it is.

So, I was supposed to publish this on the 13th or 14th of this month but my exams that were originally supposed to end on the 14th started on the 17th and I had to give my best to school and I’m honestly glad it’s over. I actually woke up very early the day after I finished exams to read and then I realized that I was actually done 😂
I decided that I didn’t want to keep this in my draft unpublished especially since February is the month of love. You all know that there’s God in every move ’cos He gave me one more day to publish. Lol. Also, happy birthday to all the people I know that are born on the 29th of February!! It’s so cool that we get to celebrate you this year.

In other news, my mum’s birthday is tomorrow!!! Happy Birthday in advance, Mrs. Asak. I love you so much, mummy. God bless you and everything that concerns you. ❤️

Still on birthdays, mine is on the 18th of March (I’ll be back to remind you, don’t worry).
I actually have so much to say but I guess I’d stop here and give you the rest of the gist later. Hope you had an awesome February.

Love,

’Ruona ❤️

P.S:

”You don’t rate me” is a slang for ”no respect”, ”no value” or ”no regard”.

How was your valentines day?? Please I need gist 😩 I was reading for exams 😩

What are your thoughts on Love and Lust?

Could you please suggest movies for me to watch?

Please leave birthday wishes for my mum too 😊

I’d really appreciate it if you made use of the comment box below. You know how much I love feedback. Thank you!

DETTY DECEMBER

I miss writing. I haven’t had time for myself since and sometimes, when I think about publishing, I’ll remember all the school stuff I’m supposed to be doing. Sigh.

I’ve been keeping myself company with publications from other bloggers. I mean, if I’m not able to write without feeling that I’m not giving importance to other things in my life, I can read. Here’s something I read on Taisah’s Diary owned by my girl, Hasiat today. She’s quite funny and you’ll like it because it’s a relatable topic so click here.

How are you doing by the way? You had better be good ’cos, after all, it’s almost Christmas. Meanwhile, I may look alright, calm and collected but deep down, I want my Mummy and Daddy to buy me Christmas clothes and shoes this year. I mean, I’m still your baby girl, Mr. and Mrs. Asak. 😪
Soo, what are your plans for Christmas? are you going to turn up? Do you have money for Detty December? Well, if you don’t have money or if your December is going to be low key like mine, you can join in this Detty December challenge my boo found on the internet:

You don’t need so much money for these.

Speaking of money, I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW JANUARY USUALLY IS?! Yes, dear. I’m shouting for emphasis because if you remember correctly, January this year was like three months in one. Please, while you’re turning up for December, remember to save because January is usually very long and people are usually broke. You can say how kind I am and how I always have your best interests at heart in the comment box.

🌚

Moving on, I know I’m pretty late on this but Fireboy’s album!!! If you have anything bad to say about that album, you are a hater and we should submit your case to Jesus. That album is the first Nigerian album I’ve listened to on repeat. I like all the songs and do you know one thing that makes it unique? Fireboy did not feature any other artists on his album and he still produced fire!! The guy is good abeg.

Alright..

What do you want to talk about today? Sorry, what do you want to read about? When I started writing this, I didn’t have anything in mind but now, I’m thinking that since the year is gradually coming to an end, we should talk about some stuff that need to be fixed before 2020. I’m just going to write them as they come to mind.

WATCH YOUR TONGUE: So, we all know that some people do not have manners. They don’t have manners at all. There are people that will go out of their way to be blatantly rude to you for no reason. Frankly speaking, some people will just make you feel terrible as if you’re the cause of their problems. We have often heard this saying that “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. But no! They’ll just drain your self confidence and if you’re maybe feeling depressed, they’ll depress your depression too. Smh. What I’m trying to say is that if you’re someone that talks anyhow with no regard to other people’s feelings, please stop it because nobody is smiling with you anymore and I’m very sure that if the tables were turned, you won’t be able to take it. Words cannot be taken back, no matter how many times you say sorry. Be careful, don’t talk carelessly. In fact, drop the annoying attitude today. God bless you.

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO PEOPLE: I’ve talked about this so many times, so much that I’m confident that I can write a book on it (Mummy, please after reading this don’t come and tell me about how I should start writing a book. I have enough on my plate as it is. Thank you Ma). Okaaayyy, as I was saying; You’re your own unique version. Nobody, I repeat, Nobody is better than you are. You honestly don’t know how many people wish they could be where you are now. While you’re busy comparing yourself to others, you tend to miss out on the other great things about yourself. Just because you’re not where you want to be yet doesn’t mean you won’t get there. Walk at your own pace.

IF IT’S GONE, LET IT GO: A lot of us are guilty of holding on to the past, letting our past define us. As much as I believe that we should try to get closure, we should not dwell on it for so long. How exactly are you supposed to proceed with your life if you’re still holding on to what’s gone already? You’re basically holding on to nothing. There are some friendships and relationships that you just have to let go of not necessarily because you want to but because they’re not worth fighting for anymore. Holding on to these things just make you lose your peace.

This is me trying to make this blog post short so I’m going to stop here but I’m just gonna add that we should continually think positively and eat our fruits and vegetables.
I think we’ll be seeing each other one more time before this year ends. Meanwhile, just take care of you and stay happy.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️
