Happy new month!
As the tittle reveals, this is my wrap-up post for the month of February (AKA the month of looooove💕)!
In the absence of further preambles, here is the run-down of my Feh-bu-ah-ree (as a majority say in Nigeria – including me):
I believe that, all things being fair, I was active in the blogging fam this month. This month, my followers count moved up to 29 followers.
And some other ✨exciting news:✨this month, I got nominated for my first blogger tag/award! The tag was named The Remarkable Blogger Tag. It was started by Selina of The Never-Ending Writes. If you’d like to check out the post, click here
Uuuuummm, I don’t think I found any new blogs this month – no, wait. Yes, I did.
I actually found two new blogs this month. They are:
They’re both really amazing blogs which I believe you’ll like.
And in case you missed any of my posts this month, here’s a rundown of them all:
Wow. That’s a loooot of posts. Probably the most I’ve ever posted in a whole month. February did me good on this side, I guess.👏🏿
This month, my spirituality was floaty. It felt like I was just going with the motions. I still prayed and talked to God, but it didn’t really feel concrete and heartfelt – it felt like it was done out of habit. 😥
And I believe this ‘down-ness’ was the reason why I didn’t write any post in the You and God category of Ọlaedo this month.😢
I really hate it that I’m down more often than I’m up. I fall a lot. But y’know what they say: when you fall, you rise up again; the downfall of a man is not the end of his life.
So, I’m optimistic that I’ll be better in my spirituality in March. Having already begun making plans and setting goals (with God’s help), I believe March will be better.
There isn’t really much to say here for this month. Most of my personal life was influenced by my School Life. Aside from (trying) to read for my exams, I’m still learning a lot about trust, what it means to care about those important to you before yourself, and keeping my mouth under control.
I mean, it’s not like I’m talkative or anything, but it’s just that I need to learn to mind the way I talk. I’m a victim of this because I normally don’t talk much, so I feel like if I have to censor out even the handful I say, then I’m ‘letting other people determine my words’. And this just makes me feel like I’m being controlled.
But then I remember some verses from Proverbs:
I’m still learning a lot of things on the Personal side, but I believe I’m making progress. And I’m thankful that I have amazing people in my life who will always tell me the truth and point me to the right thing.
I guess it’s okay to say that I’m now officially a JAMBITE. This means that I’m now a candidate of JAMB UTME (Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination).
Not yet, emojis. Not yet.
*emojis whine and quietly hop back*
The heart of the journey is yet to come. My classmates and I often solve past JAMB and WASSCE (West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination) questions. WAEC questions are okay, doable. But JAMB questions are hard.
I really need to intensify my study efforts. There’s a classmate of mine who wants to study pharmacy. She’s begun private home lessons and has bought all the books required for the exams. I don’t think I will be able to do private lessons, but I will read – hard.
Many times I think I should drop blogging just till my exams are over (by July). But I worry about how much my blog will suffer.
And then a voice asks me: Your blog and passing your exams, which one is more important?
My exams, I answer
So what do you think you should do?
Prioritize. Make time for them both, according to their levels of importance.
That’s what I’ve resolved to do. Is it okay? Or should I focus entirely on my exams? I’d really love to hear from you in the comments.
So, that’s about it. I hope you enjoyed reading the wrap-up of my February. Please give me your advice on my approach to my exams and blogging. And some study tips will also be very welcome! 😊
But I hate it that no amount of study tips given will ever work until you consistently put them into action.
There’s that 99% action and 1% idea again.
*rolls eyes and huffs*
Anyway, thanks for reading. And thanks again to all my new followers and viewers. But I hugely thank all to my active readers, the peeps who always like my posts, and comment when they can. Your actions are very heartfelt, and I believe my words are making an impact.
P.S Hope you like my featured image. 😊 I would never have made it as beautifully as I did if it weren’t for Evin’s post, How I Make My Featured Images // Tutorial. It’s a 100% recommended read.
