Wasn’t sure how to come back to the blog since I have been inconsistent this last few months, April and May to be precise, so I settled for a quick life lately to bring you up to speed on what’s been happening with me lately.
You probably already know about my birthday trip to Cotonuo, Benin Republic in April, so I will start from there.
The rest of April was me trying to settle into my role as a podcast host. I mentioned on one of my Youtube videos that I got a new gig hosting a new Tech podcast for a brand, it still feels like a dream every time I think about it but it gives me so much joy doing what I love and getting paid for it.
I can’t give you all details about it now because we are yet to launch the podcast, but once we do, I would give you all the gist.
That aside, I have also been focused on creating more quality videos for my Youtube channel, Jessica Fortunes. One of my goals this year is to hit 1k subscribers on or before Dec 31, and so I figured I needed to put in the work to make it happen.
Not an excuse but that’s a major reason for my inconsistency here, combining Youtube with podcasting, blogging, and work hasn’t been the easiest, kudos to anyone doing it, it takes extra work and more often than not, I drop the ball on a few things.
God help me I find a way to balance it soon, in between all that, I find time to do some of the things I enjoy, like reading. I am currently reading ‘That Will Never Work’ by Marc Randolph, Co-founder of Netflix, I will share my lessons from it on my next post.
I also visited a restaurant in Lagos some weeks ago, I can’t remember the name though, hence I couldn’t write a review of it, but I will attach pictures from my visit so you can see, it is one of those restaurants in VI you don’t know exists until someone takes you there.
Classy, bougie, and expensive are the adjectives I would describe it as, we paid 500 naira for a small bottle of water and I am still pained, lol.
Thinking of it now, I should probably blame Buhari as prices of everything in Nigeria has doubled. Every time I go to the market or store to pick up an item, the hike in price leaves me astonished, while that is happening, the level of insecurity is on the rise.
I had plans to visit Ibadan in May, but fear of kidnapping or robbery has me lying in bed all day and praying for safety as no where feels safe.
Hmmm, ranting about the Nigerian government was never part of the plan for this post but I couldn’t help it, its just been crazy.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention my visit to Fela’s house, Kalakuta Museum.
Anyway, that’s most of what I have been up to lately.
Counting on June to be better, talk to you later!
