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.

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job.
He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is …

The Packing Series: Clothes And Everything in between..

I'm here picturing myself on the receiving end of this content and wondering if I would prefer it as a written or visual content. I'm tilting towards visual but nevertheless, I'm still putting together a written one.
Packing is stressful guys. Oh, I already said that in my last post but I just have to state it again, for the culture.

Clothes

This was not as boring as I had anticipated. Probably because I did it at night and many boxes were checked (pun unintended!). It was 10pm, I had just finished seeing a movie, there was light, I'm naturally a night owl. Check, check. I'm definitely not here to talk about folding and categorizing clothes so, there's not much to talk about. What lesson(s) did I learn? Well, bracing the odds of going ahead with packing my clothes instead of lazing in bed and on social media that night made me realize and relearn that if you ever get the urge to do something in a particular moment, then you should do it. Someone pops into your…
