You see guys, I’m a blessed child. I have benefitted from God’s unmerited favor (Grace) times too many to number. Many things God blesses me with, I don’t deserve but still he keeps blessing me.

Today for instance, I finished early from my Pediatrics posting and a few group members and I set out to the Student Affairs office to apply for our new student IDs when we saw our very much sought after results being pasted. There and then, I lost absolute control of my mind and body! I went cold! Cold stiff! My mind was torn between waiting till the results were done being pasted to know my fate immediately or to pursue the ID thingy and comeback to know my fate. I went with the latter anyways. I got an ataxic gait sorta and someone would’ve thought I had stroke. I was hyperventilating like hell.

Anywho, I got the ID thingy over with and came back and set my mind to accept whatever the notice board had for me…

Immediately I got to the board, I checked the list of “Students that Satisfied the Examiner in all Subjects” I made the damn list guys! I satisfied the examiners guys! My God of part one physiology pros did not fail me! I didn’t even bother checking my grades, all that mattered was that I passed.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. I had my mind set on at least two resists. I turned to hug my friend, Teju who was already shedding tears of joy. We cried together. Ain’t nothing better than having your friends pass too. Your joy will be complete even if you don’t share the same matric number.

I called my daddy and my daddy’s words were; “I’m proud of you baby! That’s my doctor in the making!”. I called my ‘The Lover™’ (yes, I have a boo now) next and he couldn’t stop laughing because of how I was always lamenting to him how horribly I did in all my exams.

All in all, I had an awesome result by my own standards and I am indebted to God, My Friends, Boo, Family, You Guys (My Readers) for all the encouragement and support. I can’t appreciate y’all enough.

As happy as I am, My joy is not complete. Why? I have friends that have to retake one course or the other. Not because they deserve it or because they didn’t prepare well enough or because they are sinners but because everything happens for a reason and God has his plan and purpose for everyone! Some of them obviously prepared harder and prayed harder than I did but of course, God knows best!

I’m praying to God to grant them good success.

On the BCS front, I’m too souped to care!

I’m gonna be a doctor guys!
God willing!

I love you guys!

Something I’ve learnt this past year is that God always makes a way!

Guys! My Exams got postponed till March!

Sometime ago, I mentioned how my class moved a petition for the postponement of our exams. At the time, it seemed like a really hopeless situation but it fell through; The management heard our plea.

I was already preparing myself for the struggle but two weeks extra is a gift. Like someone dashing me an oil bloc that turns out to be worth billions.

I just hope I don’t misuse this golden opportunity.

I also hope time doesn’t go all Usian Bolt on us.

I’m happy guys!

Ciao.

PS. I have to give a special shout out to Banji. He singlehandedly filed our petition. Great guy.

On December 1st 2012, I tweeted; “This year hasn’t been my year.” Yes, it wasn’t my best year yet, because I’ve had better years and I know that I have better years to come.

It only took my reading Okeimoute’s story on 19th Street to appreciate my year. When Efe was asking people to pick dates to write, I wasn’t moved to because I didn’t feel the need to share how my 2012 went. Reading Okiemoute’s story made me realize that I have so much to be thankful for and that my year couldn’t have been any better.

I had more highs than lows this past year and 2012 was my year.

School.

I wrote my First professional examinations in January/February and I wasn’t confident about passing all my courses. I was even preparing to resit my physiology paper before the results came out. Thankfully, when the results came out, I made all my papers even though not in flying colors because I know I could have done much better. This marked the end of my first year in medical school.

Second year started off with the Basic Therapeutic Skills (BTS) programme which was basically an introduction to the clinics. I was really enthusiastic about it because I had previously spent almost 3months lazing at home; really needed to get busy but now I wish those days back because the last few months of 2012 were the most stressful months of my life.

Most of my senior colleagues say that if you can get through your second year of medical school, you’re as good as a doctor because it is the toughest hurdle to scale. I can attest to this; after one incourse, the next incourse is already smiling at you; no time to laze around. Even lazy people like me get on their toes. The light situation in LUTH didn’t even help matters.

All in all, I put in my best as regards schoolwork this past year; all my incourses have been good so far and only the people at the pharmacology department are trying to hold me back.

Family.

Being so far away from my mother and having to live with my father and my step-mum hasn’t been the best for me even though I have learnt to be very much independent. My step-mum became cold all of a sudden compared to who she was last year. I tried not to let this affect me in any way and I’ve done my best not to cross paths with her. We’re fine this way.

I got a new baby sister (half-sister). I wasn’t so excited about this but I got to embrace this fact when Michelle (my new half-sister) smiled at me; this practically made me melt.

My father was installed as president of the Rotary Club of Gbagada and this was a great feat for him.

My Big Brother graduated from the University of Capetown with a BA in Architecture. I’m already reaping the fruits; he took me Christmas shopping.

My little brother won awards at his school’s prize giving day. This same brother that we thought was retarded because my mother practically begged his way through primary school.

I grew much closer to my big sister(half-sister); we didn’t grow up together; My daddy just introduced her as my sister one day but we’re like peas in a pod.

I lost my paternal grandfather and a great uncle in the span of three months. It was a celebration of life because they lived long enough.

God.

I finally found out that serving God isn’t as difficult as people make it out to be; all you need is to be saved.

I got really close to God at a point and I tried my best to stay in contact with him even though my Church attendance wasn’t so clean. At least, it’s not all about the church going.

Personal.

This year was my year of self-discovery;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           I used to be this shy glassy eyed little girl that couldn’t air her opinions. I couldn’t say no to people and I tended not to have a mind of my own. I got this confidence boost and now I have an air of pride –Good pride- around me and I express myself freely. I’m even quite lousy now or should I say very lousy. (._.  )

I became fashion conscious, I cared about how I looked and became a camerawhore. It may seem bad but I like it; one of my confidence boosters.

I became a truly happy person. Like happy from deep within.

Not my year for love; yet another break up and every guy I met seemed to think I was side chick material.

Went on so many dates and got to experience Lagos.

Been living the single life; I’m alone but not lonely.

I discovered alcohol.

I lost friends, made new ones for which I am thankful. Afterall, you win some and you lose some. I made some pretty awesome friends this year I must add and I bless God for their lives. I’m especially thankful for this one friend that went out of his way to get me out the famous ‘writer’s block’. God bless his heart.

Some other friendships were strengthened.

My twitter presence declined; finally got over my twitter addiction.

I found solace in Music, Movies and Series. Downloading anything and everything became a pastime.

I got two new devices simply by asking. Asking really does wonders.

I wrote an article that got published in The Punch in January; one of the highlights of my year.  My blog was also nominated in the Nigerian Blog Awards under 2 categories and won by popular vote in the ‘Best Student Blog Category’.

Money.

See, Don’t take Sarkodie seriously when he says money no be problem.

I had serious money issues this past year. It all stemmed from when I lost my blackberry in April. I started spending money I didn’t have just to get a new one. The new one I bought got lost in May. Around that same time, I broke someone’s laptop screen and I had to replace it with money I didn’t have. I bought so many things I couldn’t afford and I was practically living from hand to mouth.

The only good thing is the fact that I can account for how I spent all this money.

I still need to learn how to control my impulsive spending.

Anyways, I’ve really grown as a person and I’m thankful for the highs and lows of this past year. 2012 was definitely my year and 2013 is another year; I’d be going into my 3rd year of medical school by God’s grace and I’m hoping for the very best.

I know 2012 was a gangsta year for many people myself inclusive (obviously); So many untimely deaths and unfortunate happenings starting from Fuel Subsidy removal to #OccupyNigeria bants, From the Dana crash to the innocent people jejely observing Sunday evening in their houses, Victims of the Connecticut shooting, ALUU4, Boko Haram misdeeds and all the other happenings but we are still alive and kicking.

I am thankful for the highs and lows of 2012, For the friends that stood by me, I’m especially thankful for Dami and every other person that put a smile on my face. So many that I can’t begin to name names. Also thankful for my blog readers; thank you for reading all these things I churn out. You all keep me going.

God Bless.

Cheers to a better 2013.

See me Blogging at this time of the night; My mates are busy studying Pharmacology.

We have our pharmacology incourse tomorrow and Its not even smiling. Pray for a sisteh.


religion-1

Religion is a really touchy issue especially in a society like ours and if I had a choice, I won’t be blogging about it.

Religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman/supernatural controlling power.

There are so many religions in this world but I was lucky to be born a Christian.

I believe in one God. Oluwa to me, Chineke to another, Ubangiji, Eledumare, Allah, Osanobuwa, Yaweh, Jehovah, Dieu etc to many others. One God  different nomenclature.

I believe in the story of creation even though I’m science oriented.

I believe in getting to God through Jesus.

I go to church on most Sundays even though that’s not what makes me a Christian.

I can quote bible verses even though it doesn’t make me a better Christian because even the devil is a bible scholar.

I’m saved because I believe Jesus died for me on the cross.

I believe religion and fanaticism are in no way related. Religious fanatics tick me off.

I believe in many things but I don’t believe in worshipping my pastor because he is a man like me. I also don’t believe in donating to buy a private jet for my pastor; some members of the congregation are living below the poverty line and are in need of that miracle.

Pharmacology is clouding my mind.

Forgive my randomness.

Today is my Birthday :D.

Hala Virgoes!!

Yes Im Legal!!

18 years is a really long time that is why I want to write about being thankful. This is NOT a sermon.

You see you don’t need to be thankful only after you get an A in that really tough exam, Or your maga finally bought your BB Bold 5 or You got that long awaited promotion.

NO!

Be thankful at all times. All day Every day.

Thank God for the Air you breathe. You dont pay for it. Some people find it difficult to breathe.

Thank Him for the Gift of Life.

For every step you take. Some people cant even walk and you can.

For Sleeping and Waking up. Ever heard of insomnia?

Thank him for food that you can eat. That “some have food” song we used to sing in Primary school was not a joke o. Visit the hospitals and see people that can only feed intravenously or through their noses. Not to even talk of the people that cannot afford three square meals. Thank him for the ability to empty your bowels. As disgusting as it may sound, many people pay millions of Naira just to get  their bowels emptied but you do so with ease.

The ability to see. Do I need to say more?

Speech.

Normalcy and all.

There are many things to be thankful for.

Thank him for all what you can think of.

You don’t have to wait till Thanksgiving day to give Him thanks.

This reminds me of the Thanksgiving episode of that “Sheep in the Big City” When Farmer John was  reading out everything he was thankful for and all the animals fell asleep. You see, there are many things to be thankful for that we easily overlook.

I had an e-mail to share with you but It’s uploading slowly and I dunno how to do it with wordpress for BB.

So you see we should complain less, Give more and be thankful.

When mummy cooks Amala instead of Spaghetti, eat it and savour it

You want to stay in Emerald, Daddy can only afford Madam Tinubu hall. Dont fret, Some people live under Eko Bridge.

When maga buys Bold 2 instead of Bold 5, Think of me with my c1.

Your Mommy is mad annoying? Some people don’t have mums.

Don’t look down on people. You can never tell why they are in certain situations.

I may not come from the happiest of homes but I’m thankful that everyone is hale and hearty.

What do you have to be thankful for?
