of volunteering and sunlight

**sips lemon flavoured green tea**

this isn't going to be a long post, if it gets too long i'd break it into two

I spent my weekend volunteering and it was different. By the way, I am drinking green tea for the first time, as I type. I honestly don't know why I even bought it. It is also raining in my part of the sunshine state but that is cool.

Saturday morning was a little cold regardless I went out to start my Day 1 volunteering at a local art fest. It was different, well things are different here sigh, sometimes it gets to me and I have the why-am-I-doing-this or why-am-I-even-here moments. Day 2 was shorter
Anyway, I went and it didn't hurt to speak with other people. I also noticed all sorts of people

a lady was pleasantly surprised at the-black-girl, her eyes just had the 'wondering look'
some people just walk away
another lady was old and clearly wanted to pass time watching younger guys
the funny ones,
-the lady who wanted to make known that people'…

living in peace

On Sunday, I struggled. In the early hours of the day, before the Sun rose I struggled with having to do something out of my comfort zone
Before I talk about that I will tell you where the struggle came from I had worked till 3am on a kitchen asset model in Maya I had strained my eyes, tired my hands and exhausted my thinking abilities And then my mind played games, so I struggled
By evening time, after having being privileged to listen to a great man expound a part of the 2nd chapter of Mark's gospel I had calmed down from my struggle The fight was all in my mind The struggle came from unseen scenes I was playing in my head
Before the Moon shined bright, it dawned on me "I am living my blessed life" Funny thing my bank card got lost, but God's peace enveloped me

of procrastination, of tightropes, of vibranium and being twenty again

of procrastination, its been weeks since i left a post here... I have been busy sometimes, playful sometimes, and procrastinated typing most times

of tightropes, I loved loved the soundtrack of The Greatest Showman, sigh, totally loved and i still sing the songs - my best being Tightrope

some people long for a life that is simple and planned... but is all an adventure that comes with a breathtaking view...

I think i am at a point in my life that I can relate to the lyrics of the song, living in a new place and working on my life goal. The story was the weakest link tho

I didn't feel January was long like everyone kept saying on twitter but... I had so much to deal with at various times that the days flew by, some other days were a bit slow tho...

In the last 6 weeks I have learned the Maya strings and I have been modeling, I have met amazing people, I have been cold and wondered why, I have been stopped and told i had a beautiful smile and the best - I have learned even more than …

of New Year's eve and then the New year

Thankful, sooooo thankful
We are heading into 2018 and can I scream how Faithful God is

2017 was an interesting year... I took action and it made me bolder, happier, stronger and looking forward to 2018

When I look back at 2017, I will think of the year of a whole of different and new.
I will remember the year I started on the path of my animator dream and the sunshine state move.
I will remember the year I was carless for a few months and learned a new way to 'walk'
I will remember the year I dragged a mattress from Ikea, omg
I will remember the start of the RISE model and the work-play-fit-push schedule
I will remember the year I got to work with my bestest cousin (please don't tell'im)
I will remember the year I bought cheap toilet paper and well learnt a lesson
I will remember the year I learned to play cornholes
I will remember the year I listened to Funbi's Hallelujah, Simi's Smile for me, Luis Fonsi's Despacito
I will remember the year Falz just evol…

of the cold drift unexpected

It snowed in London, and the delays and cancellations were but of course EPIC. London needs to learn and adhere to the Boy Scout motto - the previous and the current one.

It didn't snow out here, but it did in New Orleans and Houston. It was icy cold, Lord knows like London I wasn't so prepared. I was closer tho. Last Saturday was really cold, my hoodie helped out. I had ordered a blanket the previous week.

I am really just slipping into new place, new culture ish... A part of me isn't liking, the cold weather hasn't helped and my room is still a bit unfurnished.

I got a table at last and I am working on a room transformation project that I am loving. Thankfully, Pinterest is still amazing.

I just finished reading, One S'more summer by Beth Merlin, I loved it. I am looking forward to lots of cups of hot chocolate, tacos and plenty reading for my holiday.

Another road trip coming soon, ha! the Bliss traveling brings

of mattresses, new cities and PEAK

I will tell you about PEAK. This is an app I got over a year ago that has daily brain exercises you can do.

Your girl attained grand master status in one of the games and guess what happened I never got the game to play again well till today... I am so excited i put down my ipod to type this post!

It has been a long while, and I also didn't complete the Nigerian Anthem lyrics title posts in October. I am afraid but it will have to be completed another time.

I moved cities, countries again. I actually miss London however i currently reside in the sunshine state and I know for a fact today it is snowing in London I don't miss that. I love Miami, I love Miami after Capetown before Cairo. I could live there tho especially with a bit of London infusion however there is no place like London, I am fine with that.

I really didn't like my move but I see it as one big adventure so I mentally adapted. It will be crazy, fun, a couple of down time days, many many things and DISNEY omg!

The labour of our heroes past

Shall never be in vain!
I spent a good number of years not singing the first stanza of our anthem, tbh I have struggled with not mixing my lines...
Another thing we have struggled and mixed up too is 'who our real heroes are!'
Trust that till we know who our heroes are, till we key into what they have done for us, till we become ardent followers of the path they have carved out... Their labour will not be in vain
Do you think a real hero labored so that in the year 2017, our dearly beloved can hardly boast of porthole-free roads...?
Speaking of heroes, happy belated 91st birthday to my day one hero, King of the best guys ever, my special bearded one, my gramps. I still run on the path he laid out for us
