What’s Your Blogging Story?

I remember when I first started blogging early July last year. Unlike many other bloggers, getting "that perfect name" for the blog was easier than easy! This is only because I had got the name, 'Shards of Bards', long before I started blogging or knew what blogging even was! I got the name in my… Continue reading What’s Your Blogging Story?

I’m taking a hiatus from social media.

Personally, this is the saddest post I've ever published in my history of blogging. And it took me great courage to click on the "publish" button. Um, I had an intensive self development/self check session last night and after ten painstaking minutes that involved me crossing out some items on my priority list and replacing… Continue reading I’m taking a hiatus from social media.

Computer Village Palaver (Stories that touch the kidney)

Computer village! Only God knows how much I dread the place. Computer village is the most populated part of Lagos I've ever been to. And I won't be surprised if it's the most populated place in Nigeria as a whole. Almost everyone that has been to the place has a bitter (yet very very funny)… Continue reading Computer Village Palaver (Stories that touch the kidney)

Almost didn’t find the perfect title.

Meh.... I don't really like the word, "almost". Except when I use it with other negative words that then gives it a positive meaning. Like, "I almost had an accident", or "I almost lost my job". Yeah, I see "almost" as a negative word, more than I see it as a positive or neutral word… Continue reading Almost didn’t find the perfect title.

I learnt a new word today!

I looked up today's prompt, "proclivity", in the dictionary, and then on Google just to get the hang of the word. Yeah, I don't know the word. I don't think I've ever heard, seen, or used it before, but for some reason, the word sounds very familiar....... Hmm.... yeah, whatever 😂 Looking it up in… Continue reading I learnt a new word today!

Why Is The Day After Christmas Called Boxing Day?

"I don't know. Maybe it's because people punch themselves playfully on that day for fun" That 👆 was my mom's answer five years ago when I asked why December 26th was called "Boxing Day". I remember her jabbing my arm playfully too. I didn't know much about the origin of Boxing Day until Boxing Day… Continue reading Why Is The Day After Christmas Called Boxing Day?

I Hate Christmas??

I'm not scared of death anymore. Maybe, that's a lie right now, but I'll keep saying that until I believe it's true. Death isn't something to be scared of. It's just a dark, seemingly lonely passage that leads to another life. A better life. Death visited my aunt last night, and she followed him to… Continue reading I Hate Christmas??

What Is Christmas To You?

There's this thing I do on Christmas day every year that has become a Christmas tradition for me. It's watching Home Alone, the movie (Part 1-4), and reading (or watching) Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The feeling it gives me never gets old. It's just too bad I can't do either of the two today… Continue reading What Is Christmas To You?
