HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
Every time I start a new blog post (eventually), it starts off with an explanation of why I haven’t blogged and the “I’ll try to do my best and blog more” spiel. I’ll do a bit of the explanation and less of the spiel. Last year was ok but it was not fun. I fell out with the career I had studied my whole life for, because it fell out with me. The amount of job applications I sent out was mad and it was not fun. The responses were either:
I’d like to say I’m back after the LONG hiatus I’ve taken from blogging but I’ve said it a few times before and the way it turned out, it’s better I don’t. I miss blogging, I miss writing and I miss the ease with which my ideas would flow as I typed. The hiatus was due to several things including Continue reading
… I sat next to a crazy woman on a plane.
I wasn’t until I was notified that I realised it has been three years since I first blogged on WordPress. I started this blog when I was preparing to go to the Nigerian Law School. Looking back, a lot has happened. I am now a qualified solicitor and barrister in Nigeria and I have completed NYSC. The next step is getting a job and God knows the job hunt is not easy at all! Fingers crossed, I will get a job I like soon.
Happy New Year everyone!!!!
I am happy that 2015 is over, however, it was good for a few things and it did make me realise that this year has to be different. I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has been reading my blog, emailing me for help and subscribing. I hope you have a great year.
Fact: I don’t have 10 resolutions that I know I will not live up to. I can remember a year one day had not passed before I broke my resolution and forgot the rest. It doesn’t work if you have too many resolutions. We have to be realistic. My 2016 will be all about working on myself. I have one resolution and two rules to stick to.
NYSC will officially be over for me today. I’m ready to get my discharge certificate and get lost. Continue reading
I have been in such a writing funk for a long time and I have no idea why that is. I have ideas yet I don’t write, I’m surprised that I’m still getting emails and when I have time to write I just don’t. This has been going on since last year. I was waiting to magically get the writing bug back but since that is not happening, I’m breaking the funk by fire, by force. I was going to go all church and make a joke about casting the demon that is causing this, however, it’s not that deep and God would laugh as it is luck if I’m at church on a Sunday. *I did go today*
Happy new year everyone!
My first post of 2015. With the way I’ve been moving about, I haven’t had the time to write a post and when I do get the time, my brain is too tired. I am yet to write about Law school clearance, call to bar and my time at Camp (posts to come soon). Yes! I can brag that I stayed at camp throughout minus the one day I was at Abuja to enrol at the Supreme Court. Some ran but I stayed. Some got an exemption because they had to leave for call to bar. I thought I would be one of those people until I saw in my letter that my camp would start after call to bar.
This NYSC business is not funny.
I read an article on the mass failure of this year’s law students. You can read it here.
I don’t think I shouted it enough. I am so happy. I was worried, which is normal, but I would like to think that I was mostly calm. Results came out today and now I am a qualified barrister/solicitor in Nigeria! My grade could have been better but I thank God. I am happy that my friends have passed too.
