I’m sorry I ghosted. I left my station. I absconded in the line of duty. I went AWOL. I vanished without a trace, like this guy…
I know what you must be thinking, “all men do is lie.” But meeehhnnnnn, it’s been a heck of a past month, a literal movie, and I mean that in the great, good, bad and ugly ways. I don’t even know where to begin, but let me try.
Play this song so you get the montage vibe while you’re reading 🙈.
In no particular order, here goes!
I attended a proposal dinner!
Traveled to another state to support a friend at a live talk show
Got employed... at an engineering company… against my will
I watched the friends episode with the Monica and Chandler proposal for the first time
And that was only this weekend o.
The rest of the month went like;
Sending out the first draft of my book for beta-readers
Got my first Corper perk!
Got an MTN sim for data because Glo has frustrated me enough (yes, I know every network will frustrate you, it's Nigeria)
Realized that I've co-founded three startups already (don't worry, I don't have money yet)
Planning a film shoot in Ibadan in June
Transcribed a FIVE HOUR documentary video! (definitely a first time)
Realized that I'm more skilled and connected than I give myself credit for
Finished planning a ‘stunt’ for the release of What a Joke season 3
Postponed season 3’s release again…
Just needed to catch my breath for a bit.
Kinda handled a teen's service at church on my own (not on my own, definitely not on my own)
Appeared in an episode of 4 Sure Tips (my shirtless scenes were cut sha).
Repaid my debt to my mother (no, I don't mean the school fees from birth, but that one's coming too)
Oh yeahhhhh, I nearly quit NYSC! very very nearly.
I calculated money I didn't have, for only the 4378728945329870th time
I wrote a song about missing summer
Had two little sisters graduate from uni
Saw Dr. Strange and said goodbye to one of my best friends within the span of three hours
Attended my first wedding in like two years
I also scripted an ad about balls… yes, those balls.
All this and more, on 3b's & bs. I did miss you guys, now let's pray to God for the strength to turn these into newsletter content! My life is actually a lot more interesting than I care to acknowledge, for better or worse. Welcome back to my YouTube channel you guysssss
Special shout out to all of my friends doing it. The thing. Striving, accomplishing any little task. To the readers of this very little newsletter in an even littler corner of the internet. I'm proud of you.
Comment on your top 3 stories you'd like to hear the most from my long list and I'll probably give em to ya. Free of charge, my treat.
Also comment the timestamp of the song by the time you got here! I really do hope you’ve been good, and if you haven’t, why not? Talk to Bayo ❤️.
This is a proof of life post 🤡.
Go and sin no more 🤣
If not that all men do is lie, I would have asked to hear the story of the Corper perk and the one about calculating your funds, but knowing you, it’s balls you want to feed us. Oya add that ad story join sef. I want to see something
