Day 11: Osas

My year began on a Sunday morning. When the new year came,  I thought things would be different. Last year was no better and I wanted more than anything for this year to be a lot more different and rewarding. I couldn’t hold back my joy the day the year started.  I could barely hold back my smile that Sunday morning. For one, I would graduate this year. I would finally be able to carry out my BIG PLANS once I was done with school. Yeah right. As I type, I’m still in school battling to get my final year project over with.



I was nominated for three awards. I had been too busy to follow-up with any of them.  Although I did try my best to follow-up with the first, the other two had not captivated my attention, because – EXAMS.  I couldn’t let anything get in the way of my final exams.  But I sure as hell was disappointed in myself for not taking the nominations seriously.



You see me talking about my book, day in day out. If you are anything like me, you would know to detest procrastination. But it soon became my best friend and nothing seemed to be working. I had given up on publishing, I had to put my studies first. You see, SCHOOL was getting in the way of everything, I somehow knew it would, but I had no choice but to place it above all others.

It was hell getting to heaven, but I finally took the bold step and published my favourite story yet.

Maybe publishing my book is one of the BIG PLANS, but you all can see me still fighting myself and crying about life, saying I missed out on a lot of things this year.



If at all I didn’t lay much emphasis on how excited I am about the things I was able to accomplish this year, I’m thankful for all the bridges I burnt. In the end, some friends are not worth your while. The year though started on a good slate, but it began to get dusty and ugly fast, because – BAD FRIENDS. Ever thought you were past something in your life but it came back to get you? Right! But apparently, life is full of the good, bad and ugly. We all wish we only get the “good”, but then what’s the fun without the bad and the ugly? I thought I could trust the friends I started the new year with, I thought I’d still have them come the end of the year. I had a lot of thoughts. But now I know people come and go. Some stayed and I’m grateful for good friends.

In my life I’ve seen a lot of things, and the funny thing is I’m only twenty something. I’m thankful for #Shiloh2017. I went expectant and I know my new dawn has come. And no, I’m not going to end my entry without thanking God for all the things I accomplished this year. From my nominations, to my first degree, to my debut eBook, and many others mere words won’t do justice to, I say thank you Lord. I can’t wait to see what the new year has in store for me,  and I know better than to complain. In everything, I have been made to understand that I should give God thanks.
