Let me tell you what my daydreams are made of. There’s me, of course. There’s my big ol’ afro, in non-humid weather, definitely. Chic, yet comfortable clothing. And a bicycle. Always a bicycle. Always! Somehow, in these daydreams, it makes sense that I’d be living in Europe, right? Most likely, Italy. But the way things are set up…

Well, the thing is none of these things reflect my current situation. But that’s why it’s daydreaming, no? One day… One day, my not-so-big afro will qualify as a big ‘ol ‘fro. Huge. Mega huge! And I won’t be living in chaotic Lagos. Or Lagos would be sane(r)? At least, sane enough for me to pedal my way through the city without giving my mother a heart attack. Amen!

Until then, I shall live vicariously through my Tumblr feed and the women living my dream. Let me show you my current favorite photos of afro-haired women on bicycles. *cue drumroll* I present to you perfection…
