Life Update: 2018 Birthday Post

I was unsure about the idea of writing a birthday post this year because it's not very timely till I checked the posts of the last 2 years - 2016 and 2017- and I realized they both went up on the 17th of March, 3 days after my birthday so why not continue the trend?


Unlike the previous years, this was quite uneventful as I was in transit for some time, traveling to school to get stuff submitted and then rounding everything off pretty late so that I was unable to travel back home that same day. I had no extra clothing or toiletries so that was annoying but I pulled through nevertheless.


I have a ritual of getting myself something but so far, I've not really seen what I'm interested in. A God sent person got me a book I've been looking to get my hands on for quite some time now and I was too happyyy! I'm definitely going to update this post with pictures of it later on. I'm really excited and looking forward to all what God has in store for me this new year.


This is hands down the shortest post I've ever written and I'm wondering why I'm even bothering seeing as I didn't do anything to celebrate it and as I'm reading this draft, I'm tempted to just delete it and call off the whole obligatory birthday post ritual. If you're reading this, it means I decided to not overthink the publishing this post.

One thing I'm learning from life in recent times is that even though some times I make plans and they never come to fruition, better things would still come my way because I am God's child!
 I've been sleeping and reading and coming up with post ideas that I hope I'm not too lazy to complete and post. I want to intentionally enjoy this my free time before school resumes making me not to have control over most of my activities.
What have you been up to?
What life lessons have you learnt recently? 
I always want to hear from you. Thanks for reading and kindly leave me your thoughts. xxx

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…

My NYSC Orientation Camp Experience in Lagos State

For someone who spent hours reading about the camp experience of other people, it would be super selfish of me not to pay it forward. There was literally no way I wouldn't write this post and so, here I am, doing just that. I'd try to keep it simple though, not like there's much to talk about.
For those who aren't familiar with NYSC, here's how it works. After graduating from a tertiary institution, Nigerian youths have to undergo this compulsory 'National Youth Service Corps' for one year. The scheme is in 4 phases and is kicked off by the 21 days orientation camp in whatever state you get posted to.
Let me start by saying getting posted to Lagos was nothing short of a miracle. One minute I was mentally planning a diet suitable for a very long distance travel and reducing my load and the next minute, all was fine with the world.

Going into full details would be TMI but I'd be happy to share if anyone asks. Remember I said I read many people's camp…

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…
