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

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: 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 TOP 5 CHRISTMAS DESTINATIONS

Every year, when the kitchen workload that comes with a Christmas 'party' in my house begins, I always make it a point of duty to tell my mum that stressing ourselves on this day is counterproductive because it's a holiday and to me, holidays mean rest. How nice would it be to just go out and chill or stay at home and sleep or better still, just not have any guests (too much?). Along with these thoughts and whinings is always this part of me daydreaming about how I'd make sure Christmas is much more different for me when I start a family of my own. One of the activities that always pop up, year in, year out is traveling to someplace fun to sightsee, relax and make new memories.
I honestly think that in one's lifetime, it would be fun to visit as many countries as possible but taking many many factors into consideration such as the fact that there are 195 countries in the world, how feasible is that and how many is actually 'many'? I however have a list of …
