Currently I am || Jan ’18 + Survey

by Ifunanya

Happy new year guys! I know the euphoria of a new year is slowly starting to fade. But I feel like I haven’t said it enough  yet.  I am not yet sure how i feel about the cheetah pace of the new year.  Wasn’t I  just wishing everyone a happy new year few days ago? Yet somehow we are already 22 days in. On one hand I am happy it is moving along with so much speed because there is a lot that needs to be done this year yuno?

But on the other hand, where is it running to?? I don’t want to blink and realize that the whole year has passed and I didn’t even do half of the things I planned to do this year.

Well, fingers crossed. We will see how it goes.

(Meanwhile you guys… I am planning a giveaway and I am so eggzited!!! Keep reading for the deets)

So….I recently stumbled upon the Currently I am post by Ifeoma of draped in basics. It was a well written, articulate, sort of playful post that I believe helps one review the past while also planning for the future.
In the past I have come across a number of similar posts but for whatever reason I felt this one and I feel this is what I need to help me put the year in perspective so here goes…

Currently I am…

Wearing: as little as possible. I am presently in Porthacourt, it seems the harmattan has long left the city and the heat returned with a vengeance.

Hoping: To finally catch a break this year. Tbh my 2017 did not go anywhere near how I planned it. The rug kept getting pulled out from under my feet. I am seriously hoping for a better 2018.

Determined: To get off my lazy behind and finally do something about my book/screenplay. My lazy behind has been working on a book/script idea for longer than I care to say. I am determined to make 2018 the year of fruition.
Craving: Would it be too typical if I said money? Because TBH that’s really all I am craving right now.

Excited About: Planning my first group adventure. So recently a small group of friends were crazy enough to allow me plan a weekend trip for us all. I am stoked and cant wait to see how it goes.

Happy about: The steady growth of my blog. When I finally decided to start blogging(again) I was skeptical because I honesty didn’t think I could pull it off. But I have been making steady strides and so far so good.

Appreciating: Everyone that has taken the pain to subscribe to my YouTube channel, blog newsletter and Instagram. You guys are the real OGs. I cant thank y’all enough.

Irritated by: the heat, by NEPA and the fact that fuel seems to cost an arm and a leg right now.

Inspired by: Susan of wakawaka chronicles. I love her warrior spirit and her unapologetic determination to keep forging ahead.
Planning to: Finally get on my (preowned)online books and rare finds store. I have had the idea for a while and I have been dillydallying for so long. But I believe I’m finally at the right place to set it off.

Loving: My(not so) new PC. I got am Aspire E 14 Acer laptop late last year and my life has been so much easier. My old PC was high blood pressure waiting to happen, it was literally falling apart. No jokes like it was missing a couple screws. But in its defense I had had it for about 6 years so it was really on its way out.

Unsure about: How to get rid of the pimples that have afflicted me. Ever since I came back from camping in Taraba State my face has become overrun with giant pimples. I think stress is a major factor here but I kuku don’t know what to try again. Please help me!

Reading: On writing by Stephen King. Rereading it actually, read it for the first time two years ago. I am also basically reading every blogpost/article that I feel can help me improve my writing and storytelling skills.

Listening to: Nothing in particular but I always have my favorite album Udo ga di by Umu Obiligbo handy.

That is pretty much it. I quite liked this idea and I am wondering why I haven’t done it sooner. Happy new year once again, and I wish the new week brings you peace and joy. Giveaway coming soon!!! Check out my survey here for more deets…xxx

I like the idea of the ‘currently I am’. I so can relate with some of your points; I just might do one myself. You do look stunning in your ankara dress.
