So Far, So Good|| 3rd Quarter of 2017…

Wow!

 

September is finally over. It was really fast, won’t you agree?

 

It has been a roller coaster ride these past three months, when I re-read the Second Quarter, I felt a little proud at my progress. This is why I do these self reviews, and I’m encouraging you all to start doing it too, especially if you don’t journal often. You don’t have to put it in a blog, a small notepad is just fine. I made a post about this in The Art Of Journalling.

 

My mother was out of the country for four months, the responsibility of taking care of the house fell on me and I have to tell you, I don’t know if I’m ready for this marriage business. I didn’t know how upset I could get till the generator stopped working in the middle of watching Victoria. It showed me how strong my mother really is, housekeeping is not for the weak!

 

I’m still looking for a job and more than determined to find one. I know the country is shit and employers have become predators, but I just can’t sit at home to work, I’m not sure it’s for me, a place to go to everyday is the kind of order I need in my life.

 

There has been so many positives this quarter. In total, I read eighteen books in the past three months, bonded with more friends, ate something for the “first time”, waffles. And I loved it it. I had it with chicken and it was one of the most amazing pleasures my mouth has ever experienced. (P.s in December, there will be no quarter review, it will be the yearly one and I’m so excited)

 

Let me not give too much away, let’s begin the review…

 

How’s Work…

*sigh* Well, technically I have no job but I have been keeping myself busy by writing, reading, researching and making sure to stay up to date on trends in the creative media industry. So, I’m available for hire, if you hear anything.

 

I Learned…

*that I’m stronger than I think I am.
*that sometimes, it’s okay to depend on another person, it doesn’t make you weak.
*that I have the best people surrounding me, in life. And I’m so grateful.
*that I may want to have more kids than I originally dreamed about.
*that Chicken and waffles are fucking fantastic!

 

Angry With…

I don’t think I’m angry with anything right now. Nothing comes to mind. Okay, maybe the traffic caused by the tankers and trailers that are always parked on Eko bridge, Lagos. Like, who the hell made these drivers believe that the bridge is strong enough to hold them?!?

 

Hopeful That…

I will get a job soon.

 

Excited About…

*the rest of the year and what will come.
That’s it. It’s been hard to muster excitement these days, I’m on autopilot right now. And I don’t know if this is a good thing yet.

 

Any New Cravings…

*Chicken and waffles, naturally.
*Still craving grilled fish, I haven’t been completely sated.
*Ofada sauce. Though, I want to make it myself.
*Lemon flavoured cake.

 

 

Movies I Saw…

I didn’t get to see a lot of movies this quarter. BABY DRIVER was an interesting one, loved all the plot twists. I saw, ANABELLE 2, and I would say the shock factor was 5 out 10  and the ending was really unnecessary. I rewatched ERIN BROKOVICH, it’s one of my favourite movies.

 

Music I’m Currently Enjoying…

I have been going back to old school pop songs. And by old school I mean, 1996-2005. Comes with so many memories but most importantly, the songs were better then.

 

What About Fashion Trends…

I’m just really excited about anything my baby sister makes me. I’m just so proud of her and the designs she creates. It’s so refreshing to have a fashion designer in the house.
