This post is going to be unusually long, so here’s a TL;DR version:
This year, I just want to live.
That paragraph above was all that I intended to write and call it a day, but then I discovered that when you write exactly what you need to achieve, it becomes more than just wishful thinking and becomes a plan.
So this year, I want to have a plan, and see it through. I’m tired of having to make backup plans because I’ve failed somewhere and I need to regroup and make other plans while feeling like I’ve lost the whole world, that’s not what the Niro do, I do the opposite.
Top of the list of what I have to achieve this year, is getting back into school. I’m not supposed to be trying to get into school, but when you’re 600km from home and rely on someone else to get the job done for you, this is where you find yourself. Unlike last year when I got the chance on a platter, now I have to take exams upon exams and secure graduate admission myself.
This year, I want to bond with my siblings. Okay that’s being too expectant, so I’ll be content with bonding with half of them or maybe a dozen. I finally moved back to Port Harcourt in September last year, and more than ever I want to be there for as many people as I can to fulfill my role as the last son when they need help with doing stuff and in return get them to stop seeing me as the renegade who wants things his way and would stop at nothing to get it.
I want to go back into DJing. I’ve already started and I’m enjoying every bit of it, and by the time you’ll be reading this, I’ll be on my way to DJ at my boss’ son’s birthday party.
If you’re still reading this, it’s okay to take a pause and visit playbookutunu.wordpress.com because that’s where I want to write at least 30 blog posts this year. I want to improve on my writing ability as well my presentation skills, so here’s my cry for help; if you know how this writing thing is done, leave me a comment, I’ll be happy to be your student.
This year I don’t have to make 14 hour trips across the country, but I’d have to look for a way to travel at least twice every quarter. I’m even thinking of doing a West African tour, but all that will be depending on a lot of other factors, I can’t remember who it was, but someone said she was interested on here, please when you’re ready. I’m a DM away at @DJNIRO84.
I’ve always wanted to make a business out of providing media services and that’s what I intend to do with Onrun Media Limited. It might take time, but guys need to build the Condé Nast of Nigeria and I’m not going to bank on someone else to do it while I watch. So guys, please tell a friend to tell a friend.
It’s safe to say this is the year I’m deciding to feed my gadget craze. I want to own the gadgets that drive me crazy, top of which is a camera drone. It’ll be cool to take overhead pictures of people on the pitch at a TPL event without them knowing who’s controlling the camera *evil grin*, I also want to own a DSLR, Mac Pro or Mac Mini and at least one very large HD display amongst many other addictions. So if you’re touched to send me one for my birthday, let yourself be an instrument of blessing to me 😀
Lastly, I want to continue making awesome stuff for The TPL and I’m hoping that I can have the team I’ve worked with for a very long time as we change how you watch live football.
PS: If you have branding needs to fulfill, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m talking logos, flyers and next level integrated branding stuff.
