My First Post

Hi guys, my name is Seiyifa
A graduate of French from the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom state of Nigeria.

I am starting this blog because of my love for stories. I am currently awaiting NYSC which makes me often bored staying at home and not having anyone to talk to. I believe I'll be able to free myself here.

We'll be talking about real life happenings, culture, education and so on. I'll also be sharing my personal experiences.

I'll try my best to keep us posted and hopefully we will all be entertained and educated.
