Monday motivation: Little acts of kindness

I was on call yesterday, in the emergency pediatric unit, surrounded by patients with convulsions because for some reason, it is febrile convulsion season in pediatrics, and I was thinking how, these children (not literally, but the load of the work) were going to kill me, when a familiar face walked in. She greeted me… Continue reading Monday motivation: Little acts of kindness

coffee conversations

Coffee with Ameena #16

If we were having coffee, I'd ask you how your night was and hope it was better than mine because that thing called "menstrual cramps" shortened my sleep at around 3:30am.

One of the confessions, she is aware of, but the other, she is about to find out right… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #13

A day in Lagos market… Again

Adulthood was supposed be like a beautiful episode of Hannah Montana, filled with laughter and romance and friendship, not to mention, adventures and freedom as well. But No,… Continue reading A day in Lagos market… Again

If we were having coffee, I’d start the date by announcing with a little jiggly dance of course, how I have spent 11 days of fasting and working, without my morning coffee. I am proud of myself and I am giving myself a pat on the back. If we were having coffee, I’d have a… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #12
