Happy New Year: 2016 Goals

Hello Everyone, Happy New Year!! This is page 1 of 366. A lot of beautiful things await us in 2016, asides the Invictus Games, Olympics, and much more!
This blog happened as a result of me wanting to chronicle my entire stay as a Student of the Nigerian Law School. I had to stop iBlogWithGrace for now, due reasons best known to me, which I will share later.

This will be somewhat of a personal Journal. One that won’t get lost, or, stolen. One where I can reach out to 
people in the real World when things get fuzzy, or, just to relax, and share stuff with You. Stuff that I like. Stuff that may not necessarily relate to The Legal World.

I don't like referring to my aspirations in any Year as "New Year Resolutions". Instead, I tag them as "GOALS".

So, here are My GOALS FOR 2016:

  • To be VERY serious, and, focused with my studies, and read ahead of time. To be honest, I need to cultivate a hardcore reading habit for my academics(I read A LOT, but mostly other stuff not my books).
  • To sponge-in all I can about the legal profession, and, apply them in real life.
  • To be a fearless Lady, and ask "reasonable" questions in class on issues I don't understand.
  • To approach senior counsel, including my lecturers on issues bothering me and not bottle them in and die continuously. 
  • To update this blog to share my progress.
  • To make new friends, and build an even closer bond with the previous people in my life.
  • To Love my neighbour, and pray for people around the World, whom I may never meet. Thus, to be more selfless.
  • To Forgive.
  • To live and not merely exist. To LIVE mehn!
  • To permanently kill my resting bitch face. I smile A LOT, but, sometimes, I have this "keep off or die" look, it needs to go...Unless I need it.
  • To graduate from Law School. I need to make my parents, and extended family proud. University was rough for me (my CGPA almost died).
  • To NEVER forget to give ALL the Glory back to God.
  • To Collaborate with so many brands.
  • To treat myself to something/somewhere nice twice, or, once a month. SELF LOVE Baby!
  • To share my makeup and beauty journey with You. I just discovered makeup. Hard to believe yeah? But, it's the Truth, a Lawyer has to look good.
Welcome, I hope this Journey will be fruitful. As a human being, I can only wonder what this will lead to, and where this blog will be in a year’s time. Even after my call to the Nigerian Bar. Let us see…

The picture above was shot by my beloved cousin Nkechi, she's a budding photographer and you should totally check out her out here.
Just in case you were wondering this is my real hair, no weaves.
