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…

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

Quote of the Day: Be not thou far from me, O LORD:  O my strength, make haste thee to help me .-Psalm 22:19. Today I am taking you on a step by step guide on how to make a successful video call or online interview based on my own personal experience. Disclaimer : I am not a video call interview expert, but I am a HR professional. As schools and most offices are gradually reopening, more firms are recruiting.
