It has been a fun year pretending to be a school dropout but alas, my gap year has come to an end and the time has come for me to be reunited with my education. It doesn’t matter that most of my brain cells are probably dead by now and I’ve forgotten how to learn boring stuff I have no interest in.
Fear not though, I have no plans whatsoever of abandoning my blog. I’m just here to share some thoughts on this unplanned year I have spent at home, in my city, the Buj aka Abuja.
Sometimes life won’t always work out the way we plan and that’s okay. Life happens (I no longer have life plans. I’m currently following a live in the present plan). Anyway, this year, I did a number of things, which I am proud of.
I started this blog and even though there have been times when blogging stopped being fun, it has been an interesting experience. I’m glad I did it.
I conquered mutant rats.
I learned how to sew clothes and I almost lost my finger in the process.
I discovered a hidden love for football all thanks to the World Cup. Actually, I think I just like the World Cup. I don’t understand football leagues. I mean, how do you choose a club to support? On what basis do you make your choice? With the World Cup, I’m a default supporter of Nigeria because I’m Nigerian but how am I meant to choose a team in the English Premier League or Bundesliga to support? Plus, the World Cup is dramatic, with slow motion replays and emotional theme songs.
I miss hearing ‘Oweyaaaa’ every 5 minutes.
I learned how to drive.
I discovered my inner Picasso.
I spent A LOT of time with my family and I got to know them better. I also learned more about myself in the process, which was strange but interesting.
I started cycling again.
I grew a beard.
I also started working on my ‘DJ-ing’ skills just so I can be called DJ Ojay, because it rhymes.
Although I’ve been away from school for quite some time, and was unsuccessful in switching to an English and Literature degree, I’m excited to go back and I’m looking forward to embracing my European and International Law degree (just saying ‘Law degree’ sounds boring).
I shall probably leave my blog title as it is because even though I’m off to university, deep down, I’m still a rambling dropout. (I know that doesn’t make any sense)
Thank you my lovely readers for trusting me with time you’ll never get back and I look forward to sharing my university adventures with you even if that means giving up my boring and uneventful lifestyle. You shall hear from me when you hear from me.
P.S. If you never hear from me, I just want you to know that I probably got lost in the world of coursework and deadlines while I was rediscovering what it feels like to be a student.
