I just realised that I haven’t “taken stock” in the past month and I’ve so missed it. I really should get me a blog planner TBH. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
Loving: Rosegold. The colour is just everything and a little more. I’m surprised that I only just recently began paying attention it.
Excited: about the holidays!!! Time off work and all the fun. I plan to go out a lot (as much as my cab fare budget permits me) so please drop me a link if you know any “happening” places in Lagos. Also excited about a new project I’m working on. You know when you’re so passionate about something that it keeps you up all night? I love that feeling! Seriously can’t wait to share what it is with you guys.
Wondering: what’s happening to my previously dashboard stomach. Eating late, I suppose? meh.
Feeling: very proud of myself. I have been skipping at least three times a week for the past two months and currently on 920 skips. *high fives self*

Playing: Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t stop the feeling” on repeat, especially on mornings when I need a little pick me up. Not a coffee person so girls gotta improvise :D. Also, can we just take a moment to acknowledge the dopeness that is Mr Eazi’s Skin Tight? I have a feeling that man is going to do very well for himself in 2017.
Realising: that I have way too many black shoes and need some color in that department. Ideas, anyone? Of course, rosegold is top priority.
Wanting: to learn how to make wigs. Because, hair styling rates these days, ehn…. 😠
Eating: Brown rice. Four times a week. Because I don’t eat white rice. Or pasta. Or dairy products. Gist for another day.
Hoping: to find time to get back to my French classes on Duolingo – an app that let’s you learn foreign languages for free. You can download it free from your App store or Google play store.
Wasting: time on social media. I have realised that “scrolling” is becoming an addiction and my attention span is just pitiful. I think should go on an internet holiday for a while. The thought of that actually just made my heart skip BTW.
Reading: Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point”. If three pages per week count as reading, that is. At this rate, I think it may be the end of 2019 before I’m done reading it. SMH for me.
Watching: “How to get away with murder” and I’m feeling all the feels, guys. Although a part of me feels the past two seasons were better but maybe I’m just getting used to their plot twists. Also, I recently saw Dr Strange and here’s what I thought of it.
Needing: to get better at time management. Finding time for my blog in between work and other engagements has been quite a hassle. I want to do more than posting once a week for this blog, mehn. Sometimes I wonder if I’m just lazy ’cause there are people who work harder than I do and still manage to have a social life and a thriving blog. There are, right? Sigh.
Enjoying: words, poetry and other such blessings. I have also been exploring quotes on pinterest and the things that people come up with….OMG. Hope you like these:
Feeling: all over the place. Little bits of many different feelings that I can’t even describe. pfft.
Knowing: that I am worthy of a big life and anything less won’t do. We all are. Determined to do all it takes to live my best life.
Wishing: for a new laptop. I carelessly spilled water into my laptop and I can’t cry or sulk because I know it’s 100% my fault. Lol. Also, wish to travel somewhere before the year ends. The wanderlust bugs are biting seriously.
Making: plans and plans and plans – new year plans, content plans, career plans. I like to plan. Unfortunately I am not as awesome at executing but I “plan” to get better at that too. Lol.
Thinking: of how the first person to write a “taking stock” post came about it and how it spread this much. I am too lazy to Google it so I’ll just leave it here like this.
Learning: that all that glitters is not gold a la Toke Makinwa’s “Becoming” and we should never compare our lives to anyone else’.
Your turn guys, what have you been up to? How has your 2016 been?
