2015 was a funny year for me.
I used to be one of those Abuja people that say they can never ever move to Lagos for a salary less than N250,000. Well guess what? I moved to Lagos for way less. I had stayed in Abuja for over 19 years trust, me it wasn’t easy moving but I trusted God to take control. So far so good, there has been no regret and I am absolutely enjoying what Lagos has to offer me.
I also decided to update my blog more often which I have been doing. I started reviewing restaurants and more travel locations, got new contributors (Thank you @archfandroid and @azanor :*).
I started my fitfam life while I was in Abuja and i used to do 5k/10k on a steady then I moved and I just didn’t find the time to do it again. Sigh.
You know how you go do a Masters and come back expecting a good paying job that fits into your career path/goal. Well, I came back and I got an offer with a bank but omo the conditions that came with the job was something else. To me it felt like accepting that offer was tying my destiny down for 2 years so I rejected it. After sitting at home for 6 months, I began to regret rejecting the offer. Just when I was losing hope, I got an offer with a Big 4.
I am thankful for the ups and downs of 2015.
2016 (My year of GROWTH)
I want to review lots of restaurants in Lagos, more travel posts. I have lots of things planned for the blog this year. We have the Food/Game Night thingy holding in Abuja soon if you are interested u can mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am a shy person and sometimes it’s hard making new friends and meeting new people. This year, I am going to come out of my shell and meet more people both online and offline and build real relationships. I am a DM away at @mosimi20, we can always bond over food or tech or travel.
I know the career path I want to follow, to be a very good Cybersecurity Specialist but the journey to getting there is a very long and tedious one. I have lots of career goals I want to achieve. Firstly, I want to improve my hacking skills (fear not, I wear the White Hat not a Black Hat). I also want to be great at my job. I know there is so much I need to know and do and also be good at. I am going to spend more time this year improving myself.
I also want to travel a lot more this year both in and out of Nigeria. The plan is to try and see a tourist attraction (if my job permits me). I have got Erin Ijesha and Ikogosi in mind for next month. If you are interested in such, we can plan it together.
I restarted my fitfam life yesterday thanks to the Truppr 5k Run and now I can’t move my hips again (LOL). For someone that used to do 5k/10k on a steady. I need to be consistent in it.
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

Whoosh! I really enjoyed this one. Particularly because I can relate so well with almost everything Mosimi’s written. God speed, girl!
