Milan, Italy

Slight Backtrack: After Barcelona, I had Midterm week and did a tour of Northern Italy. I was in a different city very week, visiting Verona, Milan, Venice, Lake Garda, and Florence. I was going to write a blog post on this week but it is too much to write about. If you are interested in what I was up to, check out my story highlights on Instagram. You’ll see posts of each city I visited. The most important thing you need to know about the week was that I had an awesome time exploring Northern Italy. Each city is unique in its own right, it almost felt like I was in a different country everyday. Continue reading “Lola’s Adventures: School trip to Lisbon, Portugal”

Hey there!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

My previous post ended with me telling you about my fun weekend in Salerno/Almafi Coast. As promised, this post is a continuation of my weekly posts. After the weekend, it was back to school for me, which meant nothing that exciting happened, except the Wine tasting class organized by my school on Wednesday night. The class taught us basic etiquette for tasting and identifying different types of wine. Can you guess what the best part of the class was? Drinking the wine of course.

Lola’s Adventures: Studying Abroad in Rome, Italy- (A Month Recap)

Hello beautiful!

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

If you haven’t heard, your girl is studying abroad this Fall in Rome, Italy! That’s right, I’m escaping Philly for a few months to live in the Eternal city. I can’t believe it has been a month since I arrived here. I am grateful for this experience and to my school, Temple University for providing students with this opportunity. My plan is to summarize my weekly Study Abroad experiences on the blog. However, I was lazy and failed to document my first month, so you’ll be getting a detailed summary of my past month in this post, and weekly posts after. I hope this post won’t be too long, I’m just trying to carry you along as much as possible, I hope you enjoy reading it.  I’ll be sharing the good and bad, no ugly yet.

I bring you Good News!

**Hang tight, this is a long post, but it is very interesting.

I’ve been following Christ for two years now, and I’m very passionate about him. Last week, I asked God to bring me back to the foundation of Christianity, so I could tell people about him effectively. He brought me into the book of Acts, which is filled with stories of how the early church started. There are some profound sermons and stories shared by the pioneers of the early church (Peter, Paul, Stephen, etc.) These men were effective in preaching the gospel to people who knew about God (Jews), and those who did not (Gentiles). Reading Acts has motivated me to share the gospel with as much detail as I can. I’ll encourage you to read this post, and proceed to read Acts for more in depth understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Continue reading “I bring you Good News!”

A Piece On Bullying In Nigeria- By Bukola Ogungbade

Nigeria is without a doubt, a tough country. Most people say it’s a country where a mosquito can hold you at gunpoint saying “Ogbeni, Give me your blood.”

In Nigeria and most countries, women are brought up to see other women as threats. The same goes for the men. Think you’re not one of them? Think twice.

Have you ever looked at your group of friends and said “I’m definitely the Beyoncé in this group”. Nobody says “Bukky is the Beyoncé (it girl) and I’m the Jenifa (the lame one)”

You hold a subtle grudge with anyone you think is better and has achieved more than you.

Still don’t think so? Here’s a short story to illustrate. Continue reading “A Piece On Bullying In Nigeria- By Bukola Ogungbade”
