Hello people. This is the final review of my 2017 second half. Read my review of the first half here
This might be pretty long. 6months, you know. Some events might also have reversed by the end of this review as I penned things as they happened during the course of the year.
I must confess, I live life one day at a time now. Gone are the days when I used to write out things I wanted to happen before the end of each year. I get heartbroken 💔 9 out of 10 times so,why not live?
I got my results on the 17the and baby girl passed her exams. Yippee. One paper to being chartered.
I spent the better part of this month at Ebun’s place. I had moved to my house last month, true, but I still had a lot of stuff to fix-Burglary, net, ceiling fans, painting etc. These stuffs took about 2 weeks in all then I moved in finally on the 17th. You guys should say a big thanks to Ebun for me. Annoying most times but she’s a life saver nevertheless.
There was this Thursday night my friends and I went to hang out at Bottles. We actually went to Ntyce first before heading for Bottles. It was mad mad fun. Been a while I danced crazy like that. No, I wasn’t high. I don’t drink though, it’s part of my bucket list and I’d rather do that in the company of someone I trust totally. Last time I had that kind of fun was in April, on Jasmine’s birthday at Slay lounge. I didn’t feel the effect of the dance until the second day when I couldn’t move my body. Lol.
Other parts of the month was for preparing for my last exam.
I wrote my last exam on the 4th and I can’t deny the fact that it felt as if a burden was taken off my head. ACCA is actually stress. I will someday write about my ACCA journey -my gains, losses and pains during the process. Right now, we celebrate. Not yet though. Probably when the results are out. Only problem I have now is where to divert all this weekend energy to. I’m used to going for weekend lectures and now that I have some spare time, I don’t know what to do. Specific suggestions?
Let me make a confession – I hate the ember months. Like, totally. It just has a way of making me feel depressed because the year will be coming to an end with nothing much to show for it. Yes, I don’t write down stuffs to do for the year but there’s no denying that I have expectations before the year ends. We move anyway.
Organized Ebun’s bridal shower for 23rd and boy was she happy. Baby girl is becoming a Mrs on October 2nd. I’m too happy for her. Lol.
Someone said something amazing today and he blew my mind. It was a colleague at work. We were just chatting randomly and he goes -“Dammy, you are a source of encouragement to me. It’s like you have this whole thing called life figured out. Doing very well on the job, have an MSc, good relationship and you’re even chartered already”.
Lol. Please laugh with me everyone.
I’m happy to be an encouragement to him but If only he knew my life isn’t as perfect as he painted it. I’m getting tired of the job and I doubt that he knows I’m not in a relationship. Or that I’m so emotional and I cry a lot. My face and naughtiness probably makes everyone think everything with me is perfect. Lol. I saw something about that on Twitter by @fkabudu. “Stop getting distracted by other people’s achievements. You don’t know their story. You have your own work to do.”
That there, summed up my September. By the way, I’m tired of Adulting. Can I just restart the whole thing? O su mi mehn
Issa Chartered akantant!! I was literally overwhelmed with love and gratitude this month. Do remind you that I have the best parents /family? The support from them have been so massive. Especially my dad who pushes me, against my will beyond my limits. My dad literally put it on the family whatsapp group and everyone took turns to call me. I felt loved sha. On the other hand, I didn’t feel extra a day after. Life just continued. Reminds me that you shouldn’t place your joy on any life achievement. Don’t say you’ll be happy when this and that happens. That stuff happens then what next? New goals. Please, don’t tell me you’ll place your happiness on the next goal.
Nothing much happened here. Like, it just came and went. Nothing spectacular
This one came with the realization of the year coming to an end. Like fr? The devil almost came to take my joy away by reminding me of what I am yet to achieve. Again, family came through. While I understand that the love from my family is as a result of intentional work and criticism on themselves, I really hope my future family have this kind of love among us. From my lips to God’s ears 😂.
Christmas was lit. I went to shows and almost finished my salary before the month even ended. I went for Simi’s see me live, Adekunle Gold’s one night stand (ONSWAG), Fela’s kalakuta stage play, and a lovely spa session. Oh, I saw Jumanji too. Took me right back to childhood. I think this is my best adult Christmas. No doubts.
One thing I got reminded of this month though (I’ve always known this) is that you should date only people who share your values. I’ll probably write on this in another post. True life experience oo.
I wish you all the best 2018. May all our heart desires be granted and may we all have cause to sing and dance for joy in the new year. Amen.
Love and light, always.
