Happy New Year in Advance

Hello everyone,

Incase I have not said happy New Year in advance. Happy New year!!!

Ugh, a lot of things happened to me this year 2022; I lost my younger brother in January , quit my job in May and quit the new one in October. I met some cool people and lost some. I went through an emotional roller coaster and my blood pressure got really high.

There is a lot to unpack here but I really don’t feel like writing about it. Yes that is another thing; I have not been feeling like writing anything since I started staying at home again. I don’t feel like seeing people or going out.

Been thinking of how to make money without having to go to work six days a week every single morning, facing Lagos traffic and all the crazies that come with 9 to 5.

I feel hung-over typing this - tried to write articles every day but that didn’t work out, keep questioning myself if I am a good writer and why is it taking me this long to write something.

 Two days ago, I was really upset and just irritated. You know that feeling you get when you are at home a lot and everyone somehow starts to get on your nerves, Yeah, after almost three months of quitting my job, I had that feeling.


I just felt like I give up too easily and I should have waited a little bit longer before quitting m job. Do I regret resigning from the second job? Hell no! I just regret not staying till December to collect my 13th month salary, lol. 

The work environment was very toxic and this was mostly because of my supervisor. You know this saying about “women supporting women”? That is just BS, especially from this part of the world- Women actually tear down women. Yes she is a woman, and she is not the first woman I have had as a supervisor, so trust me when I say she was really toxic…

Anyways don’t want to bore you with a long story, just wanted to check on you all and know how you are doing and how my year has been so far and to wish you a prosperous, happy and healthy New Year.

 

I am grateful for my life and what I have been able to do for myself. I learnt a lot this year and my experience made me make decisions that the usual me wouldn’t.

It made me realize that life is too short; most people don’t really care so you have to also put yourself first in everything you do. 

You can only make people happy if you are happy. You can’t give what you don’t have. Even if you take someone else item, gift or possession to give to other people, you would never really know the value and you would just keep chasing after it until your last breath.

So why not seek for wisdom and ask God for your purpose and start to work on them. You are who you are and until you decide to pursue that purpose, you would just exist on this planet.

I feel sleeping writing this but I promised myself to write something before year 2022 ends and I am so glad I did.

 Thank you for your support on this blog and I hope to keep getting better at what i set my mind to, to spread kindness, love and peace everywhere i go.

I look forward to seeing you next year.

God Bless you. Happy New Year in advance.

Why I Started Blogging

Before I discovered blogging, I enjoyed writing - whether it's my thoughts, my idea of a song, a story or movie synopsis. I knew about websites but had no idea how it works; I would search Google for news (well mostly celeb gossip or anything entertainment) and it gives me different sites to check information).

My Dating experience :My First Love Part 6

The next day, I was waiting for my boyfriend, the agent, anyone … Thankfully, he arrived in the afternoon - he went to the agent house for the key before he came. I was so relieved; I hugged him and he joked about me being locked up. I followed him to give the key back to the agent.

My dating experience :My First Love Part 5

It was the first semester of my final year,i was preparing for my exams and living with my boyfriend - it wasn't  a wise choice.  Sometimes, we (my boyfriend and I)  would study together, other times I'd go for night class and study there. I got used to my boyfriend not making me a priority, keeping late nights, being too friendly with his female neighbors and probably cheating that I was just not interested anymore. We were just living like roommates...

How is life with you?

Don’t you wish someone would just ask you that? And I’m not saying just for formalities ,like when a guy chat you up and ask “sup”, “how was your day” cause he is just trying to be polite or just thinks that’s what he supposed to do to show that he cares. I’m talking about someone asking “how is life with you” and really mean it. Like they really want to know if you are okay; not just financially, physically and emotionally.

Why do I keep having dreams of my ex?

Okay, since last year I've been having dreams of my ex, who was also my first love . From, my dating experience, you can see why it didn't work out. Though, it was painful but it had to be done. After the breakup, I felt we had unfinished business or some closure to do  that each time we see it doesn't feel like we have. I barely dreamt about him but it became serious beginning of last year, that I had to buzz him on Facebook where he quickly told me he is engaged to be married as if I was trying to get him back. I wasn't trying to get him back, a part of me just wanted to know why I had that first dream which I barely have of him.

7 Things i Regret Doing in Life

There are a lot of things I wish I knew before starting it; whether is a career move, relationships, dealing with family... Most times its when we fail we learn but I always wondered why I didn't have anyone to advice me, someone close to look up to. Sometimes, all we need is ourselves to get through a situation, to create something, to be great...and with this comes mistakes, that's how we learn from them. So, here are seven things I regret doing in my life.

My dating experience :My First Love Part 5 {Cont'd}

We arrived for second semester and it was my last semester in that School. I was excited cause I didn't have to worry about getting through with some courses; not like they were hard but you know they are some annoying lecturers that just enjoy failing people while some just want you to bribe them not to...Either way, I was excited but not too excited cause I would miss my friends.

How lonely are you?

Relationship wise, I'm really lonely… well career wise as well. You know, sometimes I want my alone time. Yes I know I want someone in my life but sometimes I think about being with one person for the rest of my life. I know you are wondering if I'm alright,i promise you I am and I want to believe I'm not the only one who feels this way.  Maybe it's because I have not found the right person to be with -being with the right person makes the relationship easier and worthwhile…. At least that's what I want to believe since I have not met the right person yet.
