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.
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*
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.
… you smash your phone and you can’t connect to the internet.
The mini break, we’re having before attachment starts is soooooooo goood! I am having fun but not too much fun. I’ve had an interesting talk with someone today about the state of Nigeria and a debate with someone recently over the necessity of learning how to speak one’s language. I have not been reading much. I was beating myself up about it but I think my brain is rebooting slower than a blackberry curve. I have read so much that “I don tire!”. Continue reading
I randomly decided to go on WordPress and I saw in the notifications that I have been with WordPress for a year! I started this blog because I love to write and thought it would be a good way of documenting my move to Nigeria. So far so good but I do need to go back to London for a bit. The 29th of June will make it one full year that I’ve been in Nigeria without travelling out! This is the longest period of time that I’ve been in Nigeria. Looking forward to blogging about NYSC and other things in the future.
