I have never been a great fan of writing, but I will try my best to make this a less boring read.
2017 for me started on a great note; ‘cos I sorta did some prayers the preceding year, but then I had to return to school for my final semester. I am sure a lot of you can relate with the fact that it feels like one should drop out at this stage; I hardly went for classes again; I was more focused on getting over with my project which I officially started that same semester ‘cos I had to wait for materials I ordered two months back.
The early part of the year was quite eventful, I graduated with a second class upper from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University (This was the grace of God); I had a girlfriend, after waiting for a while, amongst others.
Then, life dawned on me; I had some things planned post-graduation, one of which was participating in the YALI Fellowship at Ghana. I passed the first stage and I was so sure I’d be picked; infact I planned life around that already, but then not everything you plan works out, so I was home for about a month re-strategizing.
Life will mess up your plans, but then it’s always for the best; just sit back, reflect on the situation and re-plan, and you’ll turn out even better than you pre-planned.
My relationship was also sweet; infact it was the talk of the town, until she woke up one morning and said she wasn’t interested anymore. I was shocked to my bones, but then, life happens right?
The club I pioneered also faced some very daunting challenges this year, we lost some members, a major sponsor, etc but then we are getting back on our feet.
I joined Daystar Christian Centre this year, it’s an amazing church; I caught a new vision, I got a job with a management consulting firm, as a business analyst. I lost some friends, made new ones.
The highlight of this year was meeting Olakunle Soriyan; he gave me some insights into life that has helped with planning for 2018. I am sure 2018 is going to be an amazing year, a year where everything I’d do will be intentional. Life will happen, but I’d be in control all through.
I really appreciate this rare opportunity handed to me by my dear friend, Adepero Ajayi (Convener of perrystots.com). You are just an amazing person and I do not want to imagine what life would look like without you in it.
Cheers to an awesome 2018 ahead folks!
