Dear Diary: My Confession (Part 2)

Mama said “Orimisan, things are still very difficult”. She only called me Orimisan when I was in trouble, so my hatred for the name is understandable. I despised being called Ori more because of the memories the name carries. I shouldn’t get ahead of myself now. Many things happened between then and now. She signaled … Continue reading

Dear Diary: My Confession (Part 1)

Dear Diary, I had a good childhood. Don’t get me wrong please! The word “good” is relative. My childhood was superb if you compare it with what I went through some years before now.

Kiss And Tell

I’m lying in bed, watching MTV Base and guess which song came on…that gay-ish song by 3Oh3 & Ke$ha-My first kiss.
