Moving on!

Hey darlings!
Home is where the heart is and DSD is home to me apologies for each day i have gone without posting and  lawd! Have I been gone for ages!
Let me not bore you with excuses. I will tryyyyyyyyyyy to be a little more regular (fingers crossed) like I used to but if I don't...... Well, we will be fine. Let's just have fun.                      
What have you been up to? How was your sallah break? Did you do anything fun? Since the strike started i have taken time out to read books, exercise and recuperate and of course enjoy all the drama on social media. Believe me, it works like magic especially after those bad days that turn into bad weeks. Its always nice to shut down and reset your mind.
We are 8 days into the month of september, a reminder that the year is far spent and almost coming to an end. While we love and look forward to Christmas and new year celebrations, it will be nice to ask ourselves How much have I accomplished this year?
 have I done all that I set out for this year? What am I doing about setting the ball rolling as regards that project i have had on my mind for long. ( food for thought for you and I)
I finally started my surgery rotation and am loving it. Will keep you posted as we progress. Oh shoot! Did I tell you about my CHER and Newborn posting ? Phewwwww!!!!! We really need to catch up don't we? You really really really need to hear this one it was bananas for sure. OK I will  have that boxed in until my next post. So keep checking.

Guess who is back!

Hi hun,  How're you doing ( in Wendy's voice), have you eaten? Are you ok?
I said I wasn't going to start this post with an apology because its getting toooooo much but how do I stay away for so long and come back without being apologetic especially to those who refresh my page every day (Thanks a lot).
I started my posting at Paediatric Emergency and its been a roller coaster, with me  coming home exhausted and passing out as soon as i get to my bed till the next day and the cycle continues. My hands have been full with making a living and until blogging starts putting food on "our table"  work will always come first. So please bear with me.
Why I was away what have you guys being up to? Who got a new job? Who got engaged who welcomed a new baby? Who got a new car?
I love good news I mean don't we all?
Meanwhile, what's the plan for friday? Where are you turning up? Fill me in by  Leaving  a comment below. And hey! happiness is always a choice not a circumstance. Be happy!

Thanks for stopping by

XOXO

My private part!

I never knew I would be sharing this, its 2am and I am still up,could be because I have a lot on my mind or because its too chilly ; although I think its the former.
A lot of things are going through my mind viz: forgiveness,domestic violence, moving on.
Where do I begin from? not to bore you with the details but am glad a lot of people are speaking up about violence at home and unapologetically so but I must add that others have suffered such from family members for whatever reason. I have been at the receiving end and I know how deep it goes,the trauma, the pain the tears and that overwhelming feeling when you hit rock bottom. I have had my own fair share of the cake with lots of icing too.
For years I have carried my feelings about in a box right next to the pain and hurt. For years I have been driven and determined to be successful just so that I can prove a point. Not that I am giving up on my pursuit of success but I do not want it to be from a place of hurt and with the intention to revenge anymore. I must forgive myself for being too hard on me,often times I had tried to just say I forgive and expect that the memory is wiped clean,when it doesn't happen that way am dissapointed, does that happen to you? Well Forgiveness is a process,it takes time ( one step at a time) its not a button that is turned on and off at will.
Life is a long journey,baggage will only slow us down.  free yourself to live a purposeful life.
 Why am I sharing this, to move on we must shed the pain,ugly experiences and choose to be more. If one person can feel better or be touched after reading this then the aim is fulfilled. That good paying job,that business,that ambition should not be to prove a point or get a revenge on those who drove you to the lowest point of your life,the hurt doesn't have to be your driving factor. Do great things for you and those who love you,the past is past and should remain there. Tomorrow is a brighter and better day with new possibilities.

#Life lately: EP9 7 months later,how I survived!

Good morning darlings!what have you been up to? Lately I have been reminiscing on my experience 7 months ago and what I went through Here   and Here
It wasn't what I expected but I can say that I have adjusted pretty well.
So my place of work is located in a village which I think is quite thoughtful of the government so that they have access to quality healthcare and don't get left out of development.
Problem is there is hardly light,haven't been for the past 3 weeks and you have to walk some distance to fetch water. The closest market is about 45 minutes away even that does not have all that you need.
I can't believe I have been here for 7 whole  months already.
 I can remember cancelling out each day from my calendar, counting down to the end of this programme.  Goodness! How time flies!
I actually came unprepared and I feel obligated to give you tips on how to survive if you get posted to such place for service,job or whatever.

1.Rechargeables are non negotiable. Light is a luxury so be prepared!

2.you need a laptop. While  televisions  are cool, you need light to be able to watch it but once you can charge your laptop you are good , at least until the battery goes off then you are back to square1

3. You need a bestie,or two. You see this is not the kind of place where you fly solo because you will be bored out of your mind. A few good friends to gist and hang out with will make it easier to endure.

4. You need to have lots of money in your pocket. Yo would  expect that since you are going there to work you will survive with your salary, well we all thought so until we were hit by the harsh reality of the country we live in. First of all from my experience I spent a whooping sum trying to make it "livable" and then the salary didn't come as expected until much later when we were almost eating grass. So make sure you have enough stacked in case of eventualities.

5. Be sure to fleet the entire house with insecticide after cleaning, before you move in, very important!

6. Keep the porshness  away it won't do you any good. You can't be in Rome and be acting like a Ghanian ko le werk!

7.Get acquainted
I had a cab man who gave me a sort of orientation about where not to go at certain times, where to hold my purse tight. What kind of people lived where and how to blend in and that was quite helpful. Study your environment.

 With these few points of mine I hope I have been able to convince NYSC that I have payed my dues hence should be posted someone fancy for my service while also getting you prepared in case you find yourself someone similar.
I hope this helps you start your day on a beautiful note.

Top 5 fun ways to spend the weekend!

With the weekend and public holiday ahead of us, must be nice to do something fun don't you think? Got any plans yet? I have taken the time to bring right to your door step 5  fun things to do to make the best out of your break.

1. See a movie
If you have a cinema in your town this could be a really cool way to catch up with friends and have fun. If I were in Abuja i would definitely use this opportunity to see Isoken and 10 days in sun city. unfortunately there is no cinema in my city phewwww!!!! Please who else is in Enugu and isn't finding this funny at all? Signify by leaving me a comment below.

2.Go sight seeing
You could go somewhere you havnt been in your city or you could travel if you can. In Enugu I will surely recommend Nike lake resort. Its  absolutely beautiful,natural and the best part you don't get charged a dine to go in. I did a review on it Here You could have a picnic or just enjoy the beautiful sight.

3. Make something new
This is also an oppourtunity to connectvto your inner chef.
The kitchen is my laboratory, at my free time I like to make something new,I source for recipes online and I have fun bringing them to life.

4 read a motivational book
This not only keeps you occupied, it motivates you. My favourite of all times is "How to get from where you are to where you want to be " I did a review on it Here

5.volunteer
If there is an opportunity to volunteer do well to avail yourself of the oppourtunity you will feel good afterwards.

What's your plan for the holiday?
