Life Lately

This morning I was pretty sure I wouldn't publish a post this week talk less of today simply because I don't feel like publishing any of the posts I have drafted but then, here I am. I guess I'm less of a planner and more of a spontaneous person and not exactly in between as I mentioned in this POST.  So basically, I've been writing exams for like forever and it's like it doesn't want to end. Here's what I've been up to..

One of those exam days 

1. A Gratitude Challenge  : Talked all about it in this post. Honestly, there are some days when I'm already shutting my eyes and I remember I haven't filled in my entry for the day, I just force my eyes open. It's very easy to forget really but I've been making a conscious effort not to miss it.

2. Exams - I have just one left. Yaay. I would have finished today but life happened and there was a public holiday on Monday so the exam for that day was shifted to next week. It's been fine and interesting too. I'm going to be a semi-finalist. I'm lowkey indifferent but grateful regardless.

3. Movies - I've been seeing more movies. It's really surprising because I used to be a proud member of the sleep gang when there's nothing to do. I've been using movies to just chill out. My new favourite movie is Real Steel. It has been Zootopia for some weeks now as I mentioned in this post where I shared My favourite movies of all time  but now Real Steel has my heart. It's so cool that I've already watched it like thrice. I guess it's because it's action. Pretty dope.

4. Thinking  - Yeah, about how much I want to be productive during the coming 3 months holiday and what I'd do to achieve that. Also, thinking about how to blog better. I'm also considering what to try this Christmas. Last year was Chocolate cake or so. This year, maybe Chicken pies!

5. Book Club - I finally joined one. A book per week. I want to widen my reading horizon. Knowledge is potential power. Hehe. I talked about some books I love in This post and in this

That's what I've been up to this last week. Not much but it's been fun. It doesn't feel like Christmas over here but then maybe it's expected.
What have you been up to?
Do you feel any Christmassy?
What are your plans for Christmas?
I'd like to hear from you. Kindly leave me your thoughts.

  5. Congrats my Semifinalist student... HopHope you are writing well?

    Being spontaneous is good but not thinking of posting at least one post as a blogger in a week is ''zanzaerous''... Let me use my two year old nieces word.

    All the best and nice post.

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham



1. YOU HAVE A BRAIN

2 Months Hiatus : Where have I been?

NOWHERE

Not literally but Wow, would you guys believe that I barely even checked my blog throughout the about 2 months hiatus? I wasn't exactly that busy, maybe I was, thinking about it now but I also just don't like reading what I've posted because I don't want to go all "Omg, that's way too much information" and then probably delete a post. I've been away for so long and the hardest thing about being away for me, is coming back. Gosh, it has been so hard! I went from being busy with school work to having a break and then being busy with another school related program. During my break, I actually brought out my notepad, drafted posts, wrote down bloggable topics, searched through pinterest and every other thing. I avoided Instagram a lot because trust me, no matter how confident you think you are and how high your self esteem is, seeing that other people are posting and carrying on with the blogging process would definitely do a little something to y…

4 Cliché (Not so Cliché) Lessons From A Short Trip.

I have a love hate relationship with a lot of things and situations such as with skirts as I wrote about in this POST. I have a love hate relationship with traveling. I absolutely love to see new places, learn new things and all that but I hate the long distance that has to be traveled as a time always comes during every journey that I get claustrophobic and then there's always one or two accident scenes on the road. It's not always pretty. You'd probably think I'm talking about a 7 hours journey but No. Laugh all you want but a 3hours with almost 30 minutes journey inspired this post while I was looking out of the window at nothing in particular. I realized some lessons the journey thought me and though cliché, I thought to share it still on the blog as this act would make the lessons stick and also to reach out to someone who might need this.
