Dusk 11: Avril

Happy Belated New Gregorian Year!!!
In 2014, significant aspects of my life improved. I’m going to state here, the changes I want for 2015.
*cue 2015 Theme Song: Same God by Tye Tribbett*
I’ve got power.
I know I will overcome.
Greater is in me.
The fight ain’t fair ’cause I already won.
And yes, I may fall and get knocked down to the ground.
I know I’ll rise up. This is how I’m so sure:
“If He did it before, He can do it again. 
Same God right now. Same God back then.”
On The Past
2015… time to leave the past in the past. I want to be optimistic about the future and forget how people have hurt me in the past. I’ve forgiven everybody. I forgive every day. I don’t know how to hold grudges. But I hate it when someone brings up something I’ve forgiven and let go of. Please, it has gone! Let’s just forget it… or try to forget it. Whichever works for you.
On Wanderlust
Ever since I’ve been old enough to know about other places in the world, I’ve wanted to travel… everywhere. But I’ve not left Nigeria even once. I like to think I’m still young but it’s never too early to start. I want to visit at least one place on my “Destinations” list this year. Maybe Zurich. Lord, hear my prayer.
On Volunteering
This year, I want to volunteer. I want to be productive. I want to be engaged. I want to be resourceful. I want to be… so many things. But I want to volunteer sha. If you need a volunteer, send me a message.
On Friends, Twitter
I want to make more friends this year. Learn from other people. Learn other things, cultures, ideologies and terminologies. I’ve been thinking of finally joining the twitfam but I’m indecisive. On one hand, I heard there are amazing people on there that will encourage and help you but on the other hand, I heard the slander and bullying can be unbearable at times. Kini e think? Should I? Should I not?
On Writing
I want to continue writing. I don’t think I have the time for a personal blog. I’m looking to partner with someone or a group. If you’re in need of a brilliant freelance writer, hit me up.
On Reading
I want to read more books. Ever since I could read, I’ve read any and everything I came across. Until last year.
I still read but I’m now selective. Started reading more non-fiction and less fiction. I don’t think I read any fictional book last year. Wawu.
Anyway, I’m looking for more non-fiction books to read. Please, recommend a good one and an interesting website you think everyone should visit. God bless you as you do this.
On Bae
Bae is good bae. We don’t always get along but when we do, it’s magical. This year, I want to trust him, no matter what, whether he deserves it or not.
On Money
I’m a very content person. So much that I’ve theorized that the reason I never go into debt is because God knows that whether I’m poor or wealthy, it doesn’t matter to me, as long as I have food to eat. So, He doesn’t bother testing me with poverty. It’s a theory sha. Nonetheless, 2015 will be my breakthrough year. The year I hammer. Praise the Lord.
On Avengers 2
I know I can’t be the only one looking forward to Avengers: Age of Ultron…
I’m gonna show you something beautiful.
Everyone, screaming.
You want to protect the world but you don’t want it to change.
You’re all puppets, tangled in…strings. 
Strings. *cue pinocchio song*
Have a healthy, occasionally awesome 2015! (because let’s face it, it can’t possibly be awesome all the time)
p.s. Complaints, Inquires, Feedback, Assertions, Letters, Good news and other similar communication will reach me at azayzhil@gmail.com. Thanks a lot.
p.p.s. Happy New Chinese Year in advance!!!

    I love the name Avril. For as long as I can remember. It just brings conjures the perfect weather: harmattan without the dryness, the smell of dodo frying, Chris de Burgh in the background etc etc.

    Avril. I love you and your giving heart. How do you feel about cleaning beaches? Freelance writing, paid or unpaid?

    Avril. Avril. Avril. Beautiful.

      Lol… I love that you love the name. I love the name too 🙂

      Cleaning beaches sounds perfect. I would love that, given that I love beaches and all.
      Unpaid writing is fine. Paid writing is fine. I just want to write 😀

      enajyte… You’re sweet.

      Nice to meet you. Email me soon 🙂

    Wow. You seem quite nice and I hope you meet your goals this year.


  4. […] year actually started well. I was so optimistic in January. I even wrote a post here for Olatoxic’s 30 Days of Hope. Unfortunately, things went downhill in February. I lost a lot […]
