Dusk: Olamide


I really don’t know how to begin my review but I told myself last year, I was gonna write a review no matter how this year pans out. So here I am writing it. Alhamdulillah.

January was just there. I was on break from school, I continued sewing classes and by the time January ended, I still felt like I knew nothing. Lol.

We resumed school. I was finally in my clinical year but the euphoria of being a clinical year ended quickly when stress entered. Boy, was it stressful!  But Alhamdulillah, we continue o. We move!

March, April, May
It was classes, clinics all the way. I had to be in school everyday, 7 days a week. One thing those months taught me was, girl,you’re resilient than you think. It was a major learning period and I’m so thankful for it.

June and July

Exams. Yaay. Finally. I was so excited when exams started cos I really was tired of the semester. I finished exams o and mans can finally catch a little break.

Second semester begin. The old routine continues. No more complaints. I’m used to it. But then, a mini riot started in school and there was indefinite break. The lazy me shouted Yaay but deep down I knew we were so going to suffer for it.

Indefinite break lasted a month and half. I was home all month. I’m on indefinite break now. I decided to intern at a Vet clinic to make most of my break and it was easily the best decision I ever made. I saw the reason why we were constantly grilled at school and I just decided not to complain anymore.

October, November 
The indefinite break was over. School resumed and there was this rush to finish the semester. I honestly thought the semester was going to spill over till next year but surprisingly, thankfully, it didn’t. We were going to start exams December. Yaaay! Oh, and did I mention, I attended Ake festival even when I thought it was almost impossible. See the way Allah works ehn. Alhamdulillah.

Exams really started. This semester really was gonna end this year. The year was fraught with so many delays but Alhamdulillah still. Guess who is grinning and smiling into final year, Meee! That’s right, Me! Because of that alone, I say Alhamdulillah.

My theme is thankful because see ehn,this year was so one kain but Alhamdulillah still. It was boring, it was the usual, no major events happened but boy, am I grateful!.

The recession hit the family, there were some few rough times but still I can only scream Alhamdulillah.

Grateful also because there were no bad news, my family, friends, loved ones are hale and hearty. We are surviving, taking it a day and time so Alhamdulillah.

Grateful for my support system. See ehn, there’s nothing as superb as having people by your side constantly cheering you on. I don’t want to mention names cos I don’t even know where to start from. But thank you guys, I really really do love you.

My sewing is better. I’ve learned to put myself out there despite my insecurities. No more holding back from me. It is so exhilarating! Alhamdulillah!

Major lesson I learnt this year is, Don’t tight the world to ya chest. Things really do have a way of sorting themselves out. So bring on 2017, bring on final year. In sha Allah, next year, I pray and I hope I have wonderful things to share with you guys! 

Till then. Ciao! ✌
