The Girl Who Lived
I think if I were to write a book about myself, that’s what I would call it. I loved Cassie Daves June recap format and I decided to use it in my Mid Year Review.
Making: I was inspired to make my own pasta (Fettuccini) by Tobi of All I Do is Cook. I learnt from that experience to invest in machines, less stressful and so freaking easy.
Eating: More healthy stuffs and less carb thanks to my Doctor’s order. Sigh, no more Road Chef’s sweet potatoes fries.
Drinking: Lots of tea. I am a certified Tea Addict. I am always looking to get different kinds of tea
Reading: Beast of No Nation. The following books I have read this have made some kind of impact on my life -100 Headlines That Changed the World, Me Before You (I laughed, I cried, I shipped like crazy and I stayed up most of the night to finish the book), Elnathan’s Born on a Tuesday, Chimamanda’s Americannah and The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma.
Wanting: To enjoy life, experience life, travel a lot more.
Playing: Pokemon Go (I recently started playing it and I just can’t stop) – It has also helped me in achieving my 10,000 steps per day goal (2 birds with 1 stone?)
Wasting: Lots of time watching series and movies
Creating: A 30 Things Before 30 Bucket List.
Wishing: That I can improve my Food Photography skills.
Enjoying: Cybersecurity (One of my goals was to improve my CyberSecurity skills, I am happy to say I have improved greatly – that is to say I am loving my Black Hat right now).
Loving: My Self #SelfLove
Wondering: When the next Shuffle event (see Shuffle The First here) is going to take place.
Hoping: For more collaborations, opportunities and ideas
Marvelling: At what God is doing in my life. I got a job offer with an Oil Company outside Nigeria which I totally didn’t expect but grateful it came by. Still wondering if it was a good idea accepting it. I guess time would tell.
Wearing: The dress that wasn’t my size earlier in the year. I am so proud of how far I have come along.
Opening: Myself to things I would never had tried some years ago.
Thinking: One of my goals this year was to travel within Nigeria. I am happy to say I have conquered 2 summits in Nigeria (Olumo Rock and Idanre Hills). I am looking forward to climbing my next summit (Oke-Ado, Ibadan) with Truppr.
Feeling: Grateful for the gift of life.
In Summary, this year has been awesome so far, looking back, I am still on track to achieve the goals I set for myself and I am happy to say that I have already met some of them. While the road hasn’t been easy, we stay pushing as usual.
