Hey Lovelies
Lol I know this post smells trouble.
You see sometimes I wished I were anonymous, but some times I am happy I'm not. In times like this, I really do not understand why I am not. To be sincere. I'll tell you.

I always advice people that know me personally to just concentrate on talking to me and stop trying to know me through my blog, needless to say they never listen. They read my blog sometimes and start acting out an annoying script.

Remember that my 30's post? So this dude calls to tell me that he is my soul mate, meanwhile we both know that he doesn't even know what that word means.
I should be able to share my problems with my soul mate, right?

Btw that is something I find very hard to do - talking to people about things that bother me. You see my life is dedicated to being there for other people but I realize that when I need people, I only can depend on my family, so I usually just keep my issues to myself. That's not entirely true because I have had people I consider strangers and people I usually do not expect to be there surprise me pleasantly. (Like last week, thanks K)
But here is the thing, when you expect nothing from people, they can only surprise you. Now that can only be good, it only gets bad when you expect people to be there and they don't live up to the expectations.

15 for 15 challenge - Introducing career talks

Hey lovelies
I am introducing a feature here where I will be sharing on success tips particularly on how to build a successful career. I have been thinking of adding this feature for a while now and it all started when I shared that I was a trained physiotherapist. A lot of people have been sending me questions about physiotherapy and how I made my career choice. I am now into public health but I ventured there from Physiotherapy. I will like to add that due to a lot of these requests, I will tailor it to my field of study some times. Also, depending on the kind of requests I get, it may be very specific to a particular set sometimes. And this is just the right time to mention that you will have room to send requests and if it is something I know I am equipped to handle, I will give it my take.

A day to be thankful for

Hey lovelies
I Graduated with a Masters in Public Health (Management and Leadership) from the University of Sheffield yesterday. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am, most importantly how grateful to God I am. My mum was here to celebrate the day with me. It's been an eventful period and I'm indeed grateful to God for everything.

              More pictures coming up on my Instagram. Connect with me @janylbenyl

So that's it guys. I'm done with school. I thank God for how great it went while it lasted. On to other things.

Replay! It's the 15 for 15 challenge

Hey Lovelies
Are y'all ready?
Based on your demands, we will be having a '15 for 15 challenge.' Excited?

We'll keep the basics like we did for the '14 for 14 challenge', and I'll share my conclusions on what could serve for the 15th post. I am thinking that perhaps, we could write about another participant's theme that you enjoyed for the 15th post? Suggestions are welcomed, since I'm pretty much still putting together the details. I want us to spice things up a little bit. I'm also thinking of us voting for our winner this time. Anyways, all that will come in the next post.

#14for14: And the winner is...

Hey Lovelies
As y'all know, we just concluded the '14 for 14 challenge' and it was such a great experience.
I am super excited that this challenge helped to wake up the blogging spirit in my favorite bloggers. See Cee, Tnotes and JDB, You know how people that survive challenges together always feel this sense of belonging with each other? That's how I feel right now. I know we didn't have the same set of challenges but somehow, I felt like I understood how hard it was for you whenever a post didn't come through early.

                      Every participant aced it. Feel free to share this on your blogs

Ready for 2015?

Hey Lovelies
I know most of you are already gearing up to conquer this year. The thing that the beginning of any year brings to our awareness is the fact that we can more or less influence the outcome that we will get at the end by planning accordingly. Having just experienced what the end of a year feels like just a few days before the new one, you can already tell yourselves all the things you could have dealt with differently.

I guess that is why a lot of people try to put in new year resolutions and write out goals.

Happy 2015!

Hey Lovelies
Happy 2015! It's a brand new year and I am beyond excited. Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy one yesterday. I had a beautiful day.

And for those that didn't, I still love you.
Being born on the first of January means you have an early start to learning how to be very understanding in life. I grew up understanding that everyone is always so busy with their plenty other activities that sometimes, they just have to come back with "I'm sorry, I was so busy". I remember when my mum would plan my birthdays when I was a child and I'll be looking out all day to see if my best friends will be able to make it. Sometimes, they were not even in town.
It's not easy for random people to make time for you and that is why I really really appreciate everyone who reached out to me in one way or the other.

Personal: The big 30

Hey Lovelies
Another birthday is almost here and that means 30 is just around the corner Whoop Whoop!
I remember I have been counting down to 30 since I was 20 not kidding.

I call it 'the big 30'. Let me warn you tho, Don't try to guess how old I am except you know me personally, you will get it wrong, I promise. Anyway, just know that the big 30 is fast approaching. I will tell you when I get there. I want it to be a surprise :)

14 for 14 challenge: Let's take a bow

Hey Lovelies
This is my conclusive post for the '14 for 14 challenge' *so excited*

I am sure all the other bloggers that participated in the challenge can tell you categorically that it was a crash course on discipline. I had a good run.

My greatest challenge was always having to pose for pictures, looking for who to take the pictures and getting used to leaving them hanging around here :)
I think I'm over the struggles and like I hinted in my last entry for the series, I was carrying some things forward. I'm thinking of keeping the style feature, but you have to tell me if you enjoyed it ;)

Inspiring you! Never lose hope by Duru Adolphus Jnr

It is funny how the lives of people look so perfect and shiny on the outside, whereas on the inside we never know the battle they fight, nor the demons they face. Well in my 23 years 1 month 12 days eyes, we are all fishes swimming in the ocean, constantly tossed by Tidal waves. So when the battles of life come our way, which are in my head pictured as merely tidal waves, I say to myself that this too shall pass, as all other waves did, I say this even when most times I am not sure how.
