Graduating on Wed,Β  yay!! Got a distinction in my MA and have gone on to start PhD studies last October ! Woo hoo!!!

Is it true, I brought it on myself?


Is it true?
I brought it on myself!!
I brought it on myself for standing up to micro aggression
I brought it on myself for being insecure
I brought it on myself for pointing out the hurtful comments
I brought it on myself for flagging the lack of empathy
I brought it on myself for challenging the abuser and his supporters
I brought it on myself for daring to recover
I brought it on myself for refusing to remain victimised
I brought it on myself for feeling I was being mocked
I brought it on myself for being a feeling human
I brought it on myself, so don’t expect an apology
I brought it on myself
So I can now learn to empower myself
So as not to ever allow once more to bring it on myself?!!
One can dream?!!!πŸ˜‡

The shock of the shock of the shock…

Text gen1 darknessm

It’s taking its time to recover from the shock of my “biological” father dying
It’s taking its time to recover from the shock of the shock of the so called “friends” who seemed to gloat at the misfortune. Wow, it’s still unbelievable that vegan eco warriors turn out to have no regard for the human animal. (Please stop with the fake works of charity)
It’s taking its time to recover from the shock of the shock of the shock of the unsupportive, callous responses and brutal betrayals from church, “friendsβ€œ and especially sister Judas!!!🀣🀣β›ͺ😍
I have amply removed a lot of peeps from my fb connection and severed physical connections too, but any others please dont feel obliged to stay in my fb “friends” list.
As for the spies on Instagram using aliases, lol, I spotted y’all, and deleted y’all soz!! 🀣🀣🀣
It’s all cool as I’ve noted who is who and the pruning hopefully serves me for my greater good, indeed by varying means, death, departure or desertion!!

… and God said, “let there be light”

Happy New Year


Happy New Year!!


It’s day 14, said one!! Lol🀣🀣🀣

Reflective Journal,

Students log 14012019 Monday

It is my pre PhD CoR day, finally got the laptop working at the help desk. I’m a bit shivery still sitting on the Maroon comfy sofas of the library. I’ll acclimatise soon or move!!

I was just reflecting on one of my essay drafts from my MA Art & DESIGN, as shown in the picture above. My opening line was quite surreal, “I am the reincarnation of Hatshepsut….”


As if by coincidence a 2nd year undergraduate fashion marketing student Adam Dutton is psycho analysing my artistry using Freudian concepts of Ego, Superego, Id, etc. I’m intrigued to find out what Dutton concludes in his essay.

But, I daresay revisiting this bit of text is somewhat arming me for the journey ahead.

I claim I want to find the best vehicle to communicate subjects, including taboo subjects like sexual abuse and recovery from it.

Other cultural discourses include allowing the Yoruba voice within to manifest freely within a contemporary and cosmopolitan aesthetic.



How would Hatshepsut do this if she were alive today? What monuments will she build. What about her need to cross dress? Transgenesis is nothing new be it in race or culture, gender, etc.

On that note, I best get back to completing the power point presentation!!!

Have a lovely evening or day if just waking overseas!! 😍😍
