Thank you for the journey, 2015.
It’s brought me a mighty long way. It was unplanned and took me unawares, but it didn’t meet me unprepared. I’m still adjusting into the new fit. Still settling into the road. Still eager to see where it takes me.
Read the rest of my 2015 review here.
It’s the first day of the fourth edition of the 30 Days of Hope project and this time, I’m going first.
I’ve never gone first.
And this is the first indication of something I plan to do differently this year and going forward – Go first more often. Just go. No more dilly dallying, no more foot-dragging, no more churning things over endlessly in my head.
Last year, there were no projects completed. There were no projects started even.
This year, several things will happen:
I’ll begin making and selling wrist bands again. Maybe make a proper, structured business out of it. I dunno. But even if it’s just as a small side hustle, is about time to get back to doing this thing that I really loved.
I’ll get my writing back up. Not like I have a choice. Writing and editing are a big part of the new job description. But that isn’t what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about fiction. There are so many stories swirling in the head that need to be told. Time to begin that book project.
olatoxic.com is going to be fully developed and this blog moved over there.
I’m going to get cracking on those instagram projects. All this professional social media managing experience and training kennot weist. As an extension, that digital marketing exam needs to be taken and aced. No more last minute rushes.
Love will happen again, somehow.
Project 40 before 40 begins. @son1ao inspired me a big deal when she declared she’d attained her goal of visiting 30 countries before she turned 30 someone last year. E pain me die say I don already turn 30 by that time. But oh well, life serves you lemons, you make lemonade right? I hope to have conquered 20 countries and 20 Nigerian states by the time I turn 40. Lay-overs and pass-throughs do not count.
My progress thus far?
Nigerian states –
That’s 13 over 40. Let’s see how many more we can notch up this year. The goal is 3 new countries and 3 new states.
No pressure, man. No pressure.
