When I decided to write this, I thought it was going to be easy peasy. Shebi na to right goal and plans for the year and that’s all? Well now I can write it with ease but when I actually started a week ago, it wasn’t so easy.
First questions is what are my goals actually for 2016? Truth is I didn’t cross into this year with any definitive ones. It’s not that I am disorganized oh (okay maybe I am a little), it’s just that you make all these plans and God has something else in mind so I kind of want to go with the flow. However, I do have hopes for things I want this year and I will share them.
1. Do great in school (again)! Mehn last year was so really hard on me emotionally but I managed to do really great at school and I know it’s only because of God so this year that I am back at it, I hope to still do well. It’s the one thing I have right now and the one thing I can use to make myself proud of me. So I am hoping by September when I am done, it’s with an above 80% average again 🙂
2. Take the Canadian Securities Exams and PASS! So I am going into the financial services industry (well I hope) and I need to take two exams and pass them to work in the roles I want in the industry. Honestly as I write this, I don’t know how I am going to write the exams because the truth is I can’t afford to pay for it right now and because I had to quit my job for school and I’ve been unable to find a new one, I don’t know where I’d get the money. Anyway, I’m hoping God comes through for me and I get to take both exams and pass.
3. Get a job after college: Job hunting is hard. It’s a full time job on its own even when you have the required qualifications and experience not imagine someone like me who really has no substantial experience. I’m hoping and praying I find something that I’d at least be proud to say I do.
4. Make friends: So in the last quarter of 2015 I moved to a new city and it has been lonely as hell. I don’t really have any friends here so I’m mostly by myself and sometimes I think it takes it’s toll on me emotionally. Anyway I’m hoping this year I get to put myself out there more and be more outgoing because well yeah I don’t want life to pass me by.
So those are my major hopes for the year. I really want this year to go well and to be in a better place emotionally, mentally and spiritually because 2015 really wasn’t the best. I typically hate years that end in even numbers but let’s see if this one will break the cycle. Here’s to a wonderful 2016 🙂
This amazon person will just be showing herself anyhow. But isn’t that what happens when you’re blessed and highly favoured? Your self will just be showing itself. Anyhow too.
More blessings and more favour shall Bankole receive this year. Amen.
