Berry Lovely Links

Hello dahlings!!!

I hope your week's been going well. Thank God it's midweek. In fact, just thank God for everything, period.

Let's have a look-see at this week's interesting links innit?

  1. I'm so freaking annoyed that an airline would have the audacity to refuse to serve people with disabilities!!! A childhood friend, Freky Andrew-Essien was denied service by a couple of airlines in Ghana, and it's such a travesty. Please sign the Change.Org petition here
  2. I saw this inspiring post from Joel Osteen on Moby's blog: Develop Your Gift. God has given you and me talents and gifts, and we'd be doing ourselves a disservice by not using them.
  3. OMG, did you guys read about Chimamanda Adichie's father's kidnap?!?!? Her recounting of the events is chilling. 
  4. So I wrote this article titled "How to be A Hater." I originally sent it to one website but they were concerned I would get a lot of hateful comments, so I sent it somewhere else and they liked it :D
  5. I like reading about other cultures, even though I don't necessarily agree with their practices. Here's The Very Strange Life of Nepal's Child Goddess.
  6. Continuing in the culture trend, read 12 Things No One Told You About People Who Grew Up Abroad. #2 resonates with me, because I feel like I have 4 homes - PH, Boston, Atlanta, and now Lagos.


  1. Sorry to read about your friend's ordeal. I often think about how ill-equipped Nigeria is for the physically challenged - elevators, ramps, parking spots, bathroom stalls, etc that are available here and not a consideration at home :/

    I definitely relate to a lot of the points for kids who grew up abroad - chameleon accent, defining "home" is a loaded question :)

    1. It's something I've also noticed and it's terrible that the disabled here have to try that much harder to access buildings


I'd love to hear from you about this post! Let's all learn and share our worlds.
