Queen: I can’t sleep.

Slim: Want me to turn on the radio?

Queen: No, I want you to tell me a story.

Slim: What kind of story?

Queen: Any story. I don’t care.

Slim: When I was little, I asked my mum where babies come from. She said I was too young to know. Then I asked my dad and he said “babies are a product of two people that needed something from each other”. So I said, “Needed what?”. He said, “Maybe they needed to feel seen. Maybe they needed to feel loved. Maybe they need to be human.”

My heart saddens whenever I read any headline that resonates with youths being indicted for this "Yahoo-Yahoo" of a thing, per se. I’ve always lamented that internet scammers have become role models for so many Nigerian youths.

I often define procrastination as the action of delaying or postponing to-do tasks. No matter who you are, during some stages of your life, you will constantly have to deal with Procrastination.

My favorite quote about procrastination is from Abraham Lincoln:

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”

From the statistics alone, it’s clear that social media has become an integral (and to a large extent, unavoidable) part of our lives.
