Hello hello! How’s it going? I’m feeling pretty okay considering I’ve got my physiology exams next Thursday. At this point I advise you to close this tab if you’re not interested in hearing me whine because I’m about to whine. A lot (I think). It’s this thing I do when I’m stressed; I complain a lot, well more than usual. I eat more. I write more, especially when I have exams. I think it’s got to do with my brain being extra active and all. Well, this will be a short post. A lot happened this past week and I’m so tempted to just itemize everything and give you one line stories. It’s what I should do, but no, I’ll try to tell an extended version of all my stories.
First things first, I attended an assembly for Jehovah’s Witnesses this past weekend and I met the man of my dreams among other things. This is the last stretch of my obsession with this innocent child. I hope you all will appreciate how cute he is and understand why he is presently my wall paper.
Well, there are other really cool photos and I’ll leave them below. But, moving on to Monday, I posted my summer bucketlist in anticipation of summer and Nigeria and family! You should see what’s on there.
Sidebar: Dear English, sorry you don’t think bucketlist is a real word. I really don’t care.
On Monday, I also learned (physiology again) that our speech and vision are so closely linked. It made me really think about what images I expose myself to. I mean, if you want to always be refreshing to talk to, you should look at refreshing things. Just a reminder.
On Tuesday, (I love how I’m giving you a daily rundown) the unimaginable happened. MY INTERNET STOPPED WORKING!! It was so depressing! Incredibly depressing! And I realized how much of my life is on here. It was especially worse because I’d planned to watch some surgeries on YouTube (I’m just trying to make myself feel better) and then upload another blog post. But instead, I studied, a bit and slept, a lot.
Wednesday. Still no internet. I was feeling a whole lot better though. That’s what happens when you expect no internet when you go home. I was also desperately missing Adam Levine’s face. You see, I get to see him twice a week on ‘The Voice’. *insert sigh*. So I uploaded this post I’d been itching to upload since I wrote it, from my phone.
Sidebar: Can I just say
browsing from your phone typing or editing a blog post on your phone is the worst!
It’s about how Africa is always misrepresented by the media and how I think everyone should see her. Read See My Africa. On Wednesday, I committed a gross atrocity. I started to read ‘Americanah’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie when I have exams next week!! I had to stop myself later after I’d wasted two hours (may have been more) and I’ve decided not to touch it till after my exams in June. Amen to that.
Thursday. Guess what?? Internet!! I was ecstatic. I’m proud to say that I actually clocked more hours in the library than on the internet. So yay me! Honestly, there’s so much to study. We had sports day in my school on Thursday and I attempted to lift weights. I won’t say how many times I lifted. Some info should be private.
Friday! Yes! The week is over and by evening I’m typing this post just before dinner. I’ve also posted a poem The Black Cloud. And then I think I’ll do a cheeky bit of studying. I’ve run into so many inspiring quotes this week and I want to share! Sharing is caring!
”Don’t wait too long. Life takes unexpected turns, and we don’t always have the time we think we have”.
”I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever”
How did your week go? I hope it was very productive!
Have a great weekend y’all! xx
PS If this post seemed very talkative and unusual, again this is what stress does to me. And yes, I’ll blame stress for everything now.
… Ohh the pictures;
So many ‘exclusive’ pictures eh?
