Welcome Back + Books + Commitments


There’s  this Nas & Obie3ce song my brothers used to play when I was younger and one part went something like “Welcome Back…Welcome Back…Welcome Back!!!” and when I started to type this post, that’s the song that came to my mind. So, as you read, just assume the song is playing in the background :D

For those of us who didn't have any holiday, it’s happy new week. For most people who went on long holidays and breaks and what nots (side eye at Toinlicious), welcome back to life…work...School…business…reality…etc. Welcome also to 2013…your year of (*insert your catch phrase here*). How was the break? Fun? Boring? Stressful? Wasted? Mine was bleh; I didn't really have a break.

I knew Lagos was back in business when I got to work at almost 9am today. Last week, I was getting to work before 8am so imagine the shock when I stepped out and it was traffic and hustles here and there. Why can’t people just remain in their home towns? I mean, most villages need educated minds to help developmental efforts, right? Okay, I’m joking; I understand the hustle I called last week my “chilling week” because I wanted to spend it to settle into the New Year and do some planning but as life would have it, I was actually busy at work so I had to throw the ‘chill’ out the window *sigh*

Dayor's book
The book from my colleague
Anyway, my first gifts this year were books; one from Dayor which I won from her giveaway and another from a colleague. 
So once again, thank you Dayor and thank you for sending it so quickly; I’ll let you know once I’m done reading it. The second book I got has a weird title and when I got it on Friday, I was like huh? Did the man remove his shirt to hand it over to a fully clothed man or to another naked man? But the title got me so it’s on my to-do list. Btw, if you want to read any of them, I can share so let me know J

So I have made commitments here and there already this year (not resolutions, just commitments) and I’m here to make another one. I believe that this year will be more relaxed for me than last year so I hope to be more committed with blogging; my attention span is short and I tend to lose focus sometimes so I forget I have to do some important things but I’ve decided to change so look out for a committed blogger. So help me God. I just want to make it known that it’s going to be a little different with me this year; I might get preachy on y’all sometimes (maybe most of the time) but that’s just because I like to share. I’m in a learning process at the moment and so I have decided to share some of the things I’m learning just because I can. So, if I get too serious or a little too preachy, please understand where I’m coming from. But I know you guys are awesome so you will keep reading. Thank you in advance!

S/O to everyone that made 2012 awesome on blogsville and to all the wonderful new friends I made last year, thank you once again. Here’s wishing everyone a glorious year filled with amazing results in everything you do.



  1. Happy new year ma'am. Enjoy your book reading.

  2. Enjoy your books dear. The title of the second book makes me what to read...

    We hope to see more of you in 2013. Have a beautiful one. Cheers!
