Eyyyyyyy heyyyyyy….. I’m super excited today, and I’m sure you can guess why. On the 29th of June 2016, I shared my very first blog post accidentally (story for another day). Fast forward to July 2017, and my baby is 1 (that’s right, this blog is my precious baby), and that’s why I wanted everything about this post/celebration to be perfect. First of all, I need to give a huge shout-out to you. Yes, you who is reading right now. I am so grateful to you for taking the time to read this post, I appreciate you. To all who have been reading this young blog since day 1, you are the real MVPs and I love you. You keep me going, and you are the reason why Hazy Fantasies is still alive today. I hope you feel very special.
If you asked me a year ago if I wanted to be a blogger, I probably wouldn’t have understood what you were asking me. I only discovered the blogging world in the summer of 2016, through Instagram and YouTube. I love reading and viewing cute photos, so it was no surprise that I got hooked on blogs. I started mine in June, and it’s been a journey ever since. Blogging is such an experience (a positive one). It’s been an amazing documentation of my growth as an individual and my struggles. I love connecting with people on here and building a community. I also love receiving insights and advice from my readers, I honestly apply your wise inputs in my life. Another major lesson I’ve learnt is, blogging is a preview of what real life would be like after university. Working on projects, researching, being disappointed by suppliers/clients, getting bored and finding inspiration, collaborations, networking are things I’ve dealt with and continue to deal with as a blogger.

Guess who finally got off her lazy bum, and is writing? Yep, that’s right, It’s me. Go announce to your friends!
Excuse my overly dramatic self. I wanted to end the week with something light, and share more about me on here. That’s why I was excited when I stumbled on this fun tag on Kacheetee.com. I thought I would answer these questions for your enjoyment and mine.

Excuse me there,
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you, I mean maybe just a little bit. But before you get all worked up, this post isn’t me telling you that I’m taking a break from blogging. It was what the post was meant to be about but I had a change of heart. I thought I was getting overwhelmed and needed a break because I wasn’t pushing out as much posts as I wanted to, but that was only because of final exams. Then, I thought I had an excuse to stay away for three weeks because I’ll be going on a trip, and needed to unplug (it sounded like a valid reason), but this is not the case anymore.

I was watching a video yesterday, and it bordered around discussions of faith, especially the christian faith. Many of the discussants gave up on their faith when questions arose, and they were okay with it. This reminded me of a time in my life, about two years ago when my faith started to waver because I had questions. So many questions about God, Jesus and the world, constantly wondering if He really existed. I thought my questions would never be answered, that it was absurd to question my religion, and I almost gave up believing but in the end, I was undoubtedly proven wrong.
It is okay, quite normal to have questions, you won’t be normal if you didn’t. We are humans, and have been blessed with reason, so we are naturally curious especially when we can’t see what we believe in. It’s not okay however to wallow in your questions and not purposefully look for answers. This is when doubt starts to creep in, and in order to doubt your doubts, you need to have solid answers. Remember, even satan knows the bible, and he’ll use it against you. Why not use it against him instead.
There are evidences that God exists everywhere, there are historical evidences that prove Jesus existed too. So, if you have been wandering and doubting, and would like to get answers to some of your questions, leave a comment. If I have an answer, I’ll write a detailed reply. If I don’t, I’ll let you know, do some research, ask other people, and get some. Maybe others in the comment section can help us out too. You might even be able to help someone, so ask away.

Welcome to another ‘Let’s chat’ series guys! Quick question: Do you watch BKChatLDN on youtube? If you do, and you’ve seen the latest episode, it was about the importance of stable finances in a relationship/marriage. We all know love is not enough to make relationships work, at least I hope you do. So, today I want to hear your opinions (both guys and girls). Ladies, would you marry a man who is not rich and doesn’t have the potential to be? Do your financial expectations differ with regards to the man’s age? Guys, would you marry a woman richer than you? Would you be comfortable not being the bread winner of your home? Any unasked questions can be answered too, feel free to say whatever is on your mind.

Hi guys! How you doing? We’ve been a little serious on here for a while, and I thought to switch it up. I hope the title of this post didn’t scare you, it’s very ironic because this post is far from terrifying. Growing up was hard, and I mean that in the best way. I’m sure you all remember being pissed off at your parents almost everyday, wishing you were older and weren’t forced to live with them. Well, that was me, but now I’ve realized that adulting (made up word) isn’t a bed of roses. This leads me into occasional reminiscing of childhood memories that seem funny now, but they weren’t back then. For fun, I dug up some funny memes on my phone, twitter and off the net.
Off the top of my head, I’m going to share one of my childhood memories. I hope you guys join in. What annoying habits did your parents possess that pissed you off so much? Let’s have a laugh. Continue reading “Let’s Chat- Growing up was hard”

Hey guys! Welcome to Hazy Fantasies, thanks for stopping by. You might not know it, but this post is long overdue. Between changing time zones the past two days, I was too exhausted to write. On today’s episode of the ‘Africa they don’t show you’ from the Nigerian perspective, we’ll be talking media. The Nigerian entertainment industry has been on the fast lane recently. Lots of fresh musicians, actors, television stations, and online platforms have emerged. Gone are the days of being just locally known, the industry has gone global. Music artists feature and have been featured by international artists, movie premieres now happen both home and abroad, movies contain local and international scenes. I could not be more proud of my country.
Recently, Nollywood (the Nigerian movie industry) was announced the third largest movie industry in the world. Who would have thought? But, I know this is only the beginning of upcoming breakthroughs. In today’s post, I’m mentioning different platforms where you can have a taste of what the Nigerian media has to offer. Go watch and have a Nigerian themed weekend!
- Netflix: First time I saw a Nigerian movie being streamed on Netflix, I screamed… literally. It was such a joy to see Nollywood get the attention it deserves. These are my favourite Nigerian movies on the platform.

Hi beautiful people! Happy New Year, I’m so glad you all made it to 2017. Hope you guys are planning great things this year because, we are just too special to be ordinary. I have been telling myself this all week. Today, I’m back with the continuation of ‘The Africa they don’t show you series’. If you missed the first post, you missed a lot, so catch up here. This post is about the ‘Hustle’ in Africans. I wish I could talk about all African countries in my posts, but since I haven’t travelled to any other country (that will change soon), I can only write from the Nigerian perspective. Feel free to enlighten us in the comment section below, about the hustle spirit in your country, if you’re from another African country. Continue reading “The Africa they don’t show you- The Hustle”
Hi everyone! It’s the 31st of December 2016, and I’m still in shock at how quickly this year has gone by. I know a lot of you are too. I was scrolling through twitter yesterday, and a lot of tweets were bordered around making plans for the new year. Many people didn’t appreciate 2016 for different reasons, which I can understand. The thing is, you can’t have highs in life, without going through the lows. Being happy and being sad complement each other in this human race.
