independence day

I just decided to write in today not because of any particular significance the day holds for my country of birth but because I felt I should do so.

The day's been pretty much uneventful except some early morning n afternoon car trouble and a good nap, better than I've had in a very long time.

I've been working on a particular drawing now for quite sometime and I must say though still in d preliminary stages it looks like it should turn out well (keeping my fingers crossed). It's supposed to be a wild bird's nest and I must say it's my most challenging work to date.

I've been doing a lot of drawings over the past month and a half. 3 portrait commissions to be precise and still I'm not close to Armin, though I'd like to compare my latest piece with one of his...hehehe. He inspires me a lot and I hope to meet him someday.

It's 2:24am and thanks to the afternoon nap, I'm not feeling too sleepy but I'll have to stop here before I start on about my insomnic post med school days (story for another day).

Keep you posted on the drawing.

Cheerio!!! HID!

I believe I've hit what's called a "writer's block" and now I know how frustrating it is. Unfortunately however, there seems to be absolutely nothing I can do about it.

There just seems to be no motivation n this is true also for other aspects of my life (story for another day, if I can write, that is).

Anyway, I hope to keep on trying but this has gone on for a while now.

I'm Out!

†ђξ countdown

12 days and counting. Finally it's almost here. At some point several yrs back it seemed like it never would.

Prepared/not? That's †ђξ question now. Dunno †ђξ true answer, but one thing's for sure...I'm prepared to leave...​​ℓ☺ℓ ​​ℓ☺ℓ .

Will keep U̶̲̥̅̊ posted. Hola!

†ђξ finish line

Contrary to what †ђξ title states, I'm not there yet but I sure can see it. †ђξ minor setback however, a constant reminder that it's not over till it's over.

So †ђξ project defence was today and as usual, I can't complain. It went ok,...generally, though it could have been much better. †ђξ sleepless nights didn't really reflect but like I said, can't complain, won't complain, shouldn't complain.

Just can't wait to get done with all these and start a new life. As †ђξ lyric goes "every finish line is †ђξ beginning of a new race".

I've learnt a valuable lesson in life. To never take anything for granted. To dot my i's n cross my t's...albeit, †ђξ hard way; and when I say hard, I actually mean HARD.

†ђξ past year's been tough, physically, emotionally, spiritually. I've passed through thick, thin, ups, down, lows n some awful depths.

I've risen, fallen n risen again, all by His Grace. In one month I shld be at an all-time high. Right now I'm at an all-time low but I know in a month I'll be up dere.

I read a post somewhere n it comes to mind now. Faith is not believing that GoD CAN but that He WILL. Lord I know you WILL, please do. Amen.

3 weeks +

Finally †ђξ time is drawing near... like I have to go nocturnal or ask for a 30hour day cos that's †ђξ only way I can achieve this seemingly impossible feat.

It's just a few weeks away n I'm wondering...would †ђξ air smell different after that? Would I feel lighter, happier (most definitely), would I feel fulfilled (I believe I will). I'll just have to do my best then wait n see.

Like we say in Naija, GD dey.

The battle

I looked at the little statue of the three wise men hanging by a rope and swinging in the gentle breeze created by the ceiling fan.

Tomorrow was the begining of a test of what I'd learnt in 8 months. I wish I were like one of the wise men, surely they knew a lot to be referred to as the wise men. If only I knew everything in this books. I looked at the books scattered everywhere.

I was begining to feel sleepy so I walked over to the fridge to get my antedote for sleep. Ice cold water, it worked everytime; but not this time, my eyes kept closing as I tried to keep from continuously nodding.

I finally gave in, hopefully I'd dream of beautiful things and who knows probably some inspiration for how to win in the battle starting tomorrow.
