On to the next one. Yay!

Couple of days back, I rounded up my 2nd semester exams which also marked the end of a session. A veeeryyyyy long session and year. We started a new session in December 2016 and with the way the school calender was set up for the year, a new session was to start around October. Eiish! I was so excited you guys.

But you know along the line, Nigeria happened. Yup. No, I’m not trying to portray a bad image of Nigeria but you know how it is: the inconsistency of the educational sector. Strikes which run into months, new reforms which were of no direct benefit to me. But regardless, we move. 

So yay. I’m counting down to graduation year.  Someone say ‘whoop, whoop’. 2 more years though. *Weeps in 5 years*

This was my best year so far, in a way. And that’s because I got to try out so many new things. So many. I made up my mind to improve my social life and have a good religious life too. As in, have a fellowship or church where I’m consistent in. You get? So below are some of the fun, weird, crazy, interesting, boring, chill, ‘not so fun’ things I got to do.

1. I moved to a new place. It has a white verandah/balcony. Pretty cozy and chill. 

At this point, I was excited. Plot Twist.

2. Two months in and our power supply gets faulty. Haven’t said ‘up NEPA’ in 9 months. Village people wehdon!

3. I made the shortest braids in my life. It was about shoulder length. It made me feel very girly. Lmao.

4. I used pink lip liner as eye liner.

5. I had beautiful pictures of me taken. Fam, sometimes I didn’t even believe it was me when the picture came out. Thanks to my amazing G Paused Motions whom I’m going to miss very much.

6. I tried out natural hair for a couple of months. Lots of people loved it. But me in my element, got up one day and cut it. Reason: it became too hard and I don’t have the energy to mix concoction every morning.

7. I was a model scout for a day. One of my goals this year was to get into a very good modelling agency in Nigeria. That’s hasn’t happened yet. But I applied to be a scout for an agency. Scouted at the Owerri mall, my girls didn’t get accepted though. The end.

8. I perfected my sowing!!! I made a shorts, a dress, my confirmation cloth (Yes, I just did that), and an undergoing jumpsuit. This happened during the first strike we experienced.

9. Went for partiesssss. I’m exaggerating, just 3 though. Asides the ones which happened in my hostel. Lol. Wow. I was team ‘where the party at’ 1 out of 3 times partially the life of the party. Striked that off my list.

10. Walked from my hostel to Diamond bank. Alone. No, my leg didn’t break. Yes, it was fun.

Best part. *rings bell*

11. I became a member of the Protocol unit in my fellowship in school.

12.  I found the peeeerrfffeccttt fellowship in school. After my long search that even reached Ynaija. Read here. Always amazing.

13. Fetched water from downstairs to my floor almost everyday. See torture.

14. Did road walk. Twice. First time I was alone. I had to stop because lectures resumed fully and I didn’t want to disappear.

THIS ONE IS WAWU.

15. Thought up a topic for my IT defense, and did research from the scratch. My presentation was also very cool, I invested all my nerves into remembering every word and delivered very well. I was very proud of myself. I got an A. I’m tempted to put ofcourse but then it’s all God’s grace. My topic was ‘Why does the blogosphere seem overcrowded?’ 

Defense day. Blessed among men.

16. I travelled in the middle of the school section. I sincerely thought the lecturers would go on strike as their were rumours. I was  kuku tired of education shaa, so I just took my bags one day and went to PHC. The rain that beat me and held my stranded at the park no be here. But it was worth it.

Before I left for PHC

17. I missed so many class attendances, I became scared.

18. I did an advert for Tasty Flavours NG. Talkabout ‘God did that’.

Forget my face. I made my own skin care products and now my skin is flawless. I’ll share soon.

19. Became a part of the TEDxFUTO team which is still under works. God willing. Amazing opportunity.

20. Co-founded Mundus Digital, a full service digital marketing agency located in Owerri which delivers services for brands, individuals and yeah you of course. It’s been an amzing journey so far. And of course, God did that.

There’s something about odd numbers. So I’m going to make it 21.

21. I slept a lot, a whole damn lot. A whole damn lot sometimes I don’t even realize where I am when I wake up. Jeez.

This is not all guys, there are so much more soon. Whatevs.
I love you guys as usual. You all are the bestest people in the world. Thank you for all the support, nice words, not giving up on me, checking up, encouragement. Trust me, this year I’ve felt like I couldn’t continue this blog anymore. Like what’s the use, but when I remember all your thoughts you guys, I know I have to. I’m making impact. God bless you all. 

I love you again. I love you. For reals.
Signing out.

Love xx ❤❤

COMPLETING MY DAYS OF GRATITUDE.

“And still, after all this time, The sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe me’. Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky” Hafez

Finally I have decided to complete this, as I have been procrastinating for quite a while now. I felt a stronger urge to complete this after a fellow blogger and colleague in school (aladyandlife.blogspot.com) tagged me on a post on Facebook where she wrote that she wanted to share hers. I felt really disappointed in myself for not completing mine, and on the other hand proud too, that I inspired her to start hers. Continue reading “COMPLETING MY DAYS OF GRATITUDE.”

Ugonna's Day Out.

I am really much of an indoor person. I don’t know if it’s because am broke or I don’t just know the right places to go to, or the right people to meet with. I actually think it’s the first, yes the actually brokeness which makes you even make the silliest excuses for not coming out. “Err…am kind of busy now”, “my dog is sick”,  when in essence, you can’t go out because you don’t even have shi-shi, not even transport money, so you don’t go there and form that you just finished eating at home and therefore are not hungry.

Day 5: What Sound Are You Grateful For?

Hey guys. It’s my 5th day of my 30 day of gratitude, and I would be sharing what sound I am so grateful for.Yas!!!

But before then, a little something.

The best lessons to be learnt as a human are those we’ve taught ourselves as a result of our experiences.

Another apology on how  inconsistent I’ve been with my 30 days of Gratitude. I should probably just wrap it up all in one day.

Anyways, today I would be sharing the sounds that I am very grateful for.  Continue reading “Day 5: What Sound Are You Grateful For?”
