#31F.A.B.Voices...Testifying,university of ibadan

*Drumroll* The RESPLENDENT Lizzie testifies…

Yay!!!
Hon. Lizzie in da house, complete with her big big grammer looool
I met Lizzie some four years ago. I had just crossed to the Social sciences and I had to take some 100level courses so therefore I had clashing courses. Someone told me to meet the classrep of 100level to borrow her note cos not only was she efficient, she had the neatest handwriting… So I rang her up and met her in Queens hall. She was more than helpful, for someone who didn’t know me ( Or maybe she did cos I was super popular) . And all these years, Lizzie has been that… ResourceFULL and HelpFULL…
We later found ourselves in the same off campus hostel and Lizzie was the only person I could drop my key with, give my ATM card and pin to and generally just entrust with information cos she was just trustworthy. Even when you expect her to just go in and take what she wants to, she won’t. She will WAIT until she had taken permission. Ah, people like Lizzie are RARE ooo. One night my room got flooded cos I left my tap on and our dearly beloved caretaker decided to pump water and wham!!! The red sea in my haven. That night Lizzie came over with her friend and helped me put my room and all my LOAD back in shape. Infact she had more ginger than me sef. All through my stay in Anchorage, Lizzie was just amazing. And she took me PLENTY of pictures too looooool. She takes amazing shots walahi…
And yes, she also was one of my partners in crime whenever we had to harass either the caretaker or the landlord or both for attempting to increase rent, or light or water issues!!! Loooool. Fun times in Anchorage yo!!! I am surprised they didn’t evict us sef… I even hear some people are saying in school that she behaves like me now Loooool

For my wedding, she was VERY helpful too. My momsie still asks after her

True true like Dee said, Lizzie can actually save your life

Lizzie ane Dimma

Infact, if i continue i will not end so I will just say God bless Lizzie cos she is indeed an ANGEL.
People, please enjoy the phenomenal Lizzie… (Don’t forget to grab your dictionary *wink*)

Hi FAB’ers!!!…
I’m Lizzieebunoluwa, a student and multi-faceted enthusiast(which is really a fancy way of declaring my inability to define my steadily unravelling identity) who gets an inexplicable thrill out of the beauty of people,music,food and words.
I live in the ancient city of Ibadan(for now).please feel free to make a lucky guess within the 30 and below age category 🙂 trust me, the odds are in your favour.

****She is less than 20 ooo :p but way mature for her age ****

You see, i mulled over a thousand and one ways to project a legendary F.A.B VOICE entry. Its a shame as no especially bright ideas jumped at me..lol. So,I’ll just move on.
   2013 was in a sense, a year of years for me. It seemed to me like  two distinct years, the before, the after and every other time in between.
I ticked off boxes as i journeyed through the year, learning firsthand (not altogether pleasantly) lessons on choices, trust, giving, the power within, accountability, change and most importantly the pilot of time. I even learnt that I mattered, that I was important, remarkable, different and awesomely so at that. Severally, I was surprised when people admired,complimented or expressed awe at my person. I didn’t think I was that great, I thought I could be a better person, last year made me see differently and learn to appreciate myself.

While I feel like it wasn’t a great year that marked much success, I also learnt a huge lesson on cultivating an attitude o’gratitude and i’m grateful for even the seemingly ‘small’ miracles and results i’ve got to show.
I yet live people! There’s room for more…
  Oh did I mention 2013 heralded my dramatic journey to blogging and wealth of knowledge&relationships i’ve gained from it? Yes it did. So you see, lots to be grateful for.

Its my utmost desire to lead a richer, no-holds-barred, wholesome& of course, resplendent 😉 life this year, one whose essence is drawn SOLELY from its birthed source – GOD, enjoying the BIG PICTURE as He unravels it. 

This year, I “musto” become  francophone and perhaps german or spanish speaking too. By God, I must. And if I have to physically drag myself, I will, till I also start my long-planned piano lessons.

A couple weeks ago, a lecturer was speaking to me and when he learnt I was in my final semester in school, he asked, “So what’s next, Masters or Marriage?”.
Oh my, that cracked me up. I had never heard it put that way before, plus it kinda rhymed. So, I laughhhhhhhed.

***This sounds like Doctor Okafor or Omobowale? Correct? Both of them made me look like someone who was wasting her First Class degree by not taking advantage of scholarship opps and going for my masters immediately!!! Loooool. Me I told them MARRIAGE and career ooo before Masters biko IF I chose to…***

The poor man was both surprised and amused. Anyways, as plans of that sort go, I would just tick the “none of the above” option. Lol.
My reason is simple, this year,I have to, for the sake of relief, God’s glory and my parents w̶h̶o̶ ̶a̶r̶e̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶b̶a̶b̶l̶y̶ ̶w̶e̶a̶r̶y̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶i̶r̶ ̶f̶i̶n̶a̶n̶c̶i̶a̶l̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶m̶i̶t̶m̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶e̶d̶u̶c̶a̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ , first GRADUATE o!..lol.. Seriously, I need to already,  ahn-ahn, its not like its a PhD o. Its Bsc o.

***Oh please shurrup jor. Someone that hears you will think you have spent more than 5years in school meanwhile you haven’t and you have almost graduated sef…****

In keeping with the need to graduate, i’ve gotta draw on inner&external reserves of grace,strength&resource to write a remarkably-resplendent project, ace my final courses and finish victoriously…uh..this is the point where y’all begin to (a̶s̶k̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶a̶c̶c̶o̶u̶n̶t̶ ̶n̶u̶m̶b̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶o̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶e̶n̶c̶o̶u̶r̶a̶g̶e̶ ̶m̶e)̶ ̶ fire prayers for me.  

Dear FAB’ers, I would to God, that i trust more, giiiiiiive more,risk more,raise the bar on shocking faith expressions daily,put myself out there more and VALUE myself more  in 2014,
   I would be doubly glad if in keeping with leading a wholesome, no-holds-barred etc life this year, I enjoy divinely orchestrated relationships that will harness my gamut of inclinations, skill set&interests and set the tone for measurable success in building capacity and a career path for the near future.

***Ok i percieve that most of y’all didn’t quit get this… Basically what this oyibo here means is that she hopes to meet people who will help her maximize all the potential within her and ultimately help her to find and be on the career path that best suits her even as she graduates. You know, more link divine direction and encounters… Phew…****

  Lastly, I don’t really like suspense, so just in case, the rapture happens in 2014 and you don’t get to hear my testimoniesssssss&news of the fab 2014 I had, let me post it ahead now. The title will most likely read;
    A WOMAN MIGHTILY HELPED BY GOD – Lizzieebunoluwa’s 2014 experience.
Awesome …yes? I know!
It won’t be long now.

Till then,
Stay F.A.B,Winning&Resplendent 😉

*** Who go come remain after rapture na? Loooool. Amen darling. I truly pray you meet helpers of life and destiny. BTW babe blogs at www.lizzieebunoluwa.wordpress.com ***

Nicely wrapping this #31Voices up… Whoop. I certainly hope I didn’t miss anyone out (Jenny ooo I dunno why I can’t reach you ).
Will run the final testifier tomorrow after which I will drop my last words…
Also would create a page where I will have everyone’s entry link together in one place for easy access…
After which I would take a one week break (or two) from blogging.
Trust me, I have earned this holiday. I need to retreat to refuel so that I come back refreshed and we will refire from where we stopped on an even higher level… Plus with NYSC over, work go soon start so I need to ‘arrange’ some things
That sounds like a good plan yeah?
I think so too

One love my people *in Tu’s voice*

Just incase y'all be wondering wetin this resplendent mean sef...

    Lizzy’s time, yipee! I just had to come out of my waka-pass mode and drop a comment on this one.
    I don’t know how she does it, but this Lizzie babe has infectious energy and excitement.
    She’s got unpopular insight and the sound of her laughter is beautiful almost as much as she is. (now I sound like someone who has a girl-crush on Ebunoluwa).
    Anyway, I am aware last year promised laughter and didn’t seem to deliver at some point, but blessed be God by whom we always triumph.
    I am fiercely proud of this woman and I know she is reserved for very noble purposes.
    Amen to all her prayers/expectations- and E’s – for 2014

      And these words? Colour me pleasantly surprised and all blushed out!

      Whoa! Those are remarkably beautiful words right there plus timely, uplifting prayers.
      Bless your heart Ore!

      P.s; because I read the comment before dwelling on the name, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why a certain Lily had such personal knowledge of me 🙂

    Whilst I have observed a similar “flow” in the writings of the fabulous Eziaha and our resplendent Lizzie, I never knew they are so closly connected! I had the privilege of meeting Lizzie in a most unusual way about six years ago and she’s one polymath that has never ceased to amaze me. She’s nothing short of exceptional (and that’s my simple way of declaring my inability to describe the uncommon blend of talent, wit and godly character that she is). Great things are spoken of you Lizzie. I have absolutely no doubt that you’ll “turn the world upside down.” May you continue to be a bright and a shining light. We’re proud of you dear! Thank you Fab sister, for giving us this inspiring testimony.

      Did I hear you say unusual?hmmm, talk about an understatement..lol

      Thank you Shola! Since its become your default to celebrate me so, even beyond my thoughts or vision [did I mention how absolutely exciting it is to be publicly called a polymath? Whoopeeee!!! 🙂 ], God’ll increase your greatness across regions&men’ll respond in overwhelming adulation of your God-enabled exploits .

      I tell you, more beautiful words ne’er spoken!@
      “She’s nothing short of exceptional (and that’s my simple way of declaring my inability to describe the uncommon blend of talent, wit and godly character that she is).”
      Thank you again Shola. You words of affirmation& delightful prayer is the marked reason why I count you twice (without doubt o) when I count builders of my success story 😉
      God bless you BIGly!

    Lizzie the laughing one. This babe can laugh ehn! I remember the day she came to my house, she just kept laughing at everything I said (and yes Eziaha, we were laughing at u). At some point I was wondering if she wasn’t mocking me cos I didnt think I was that funny. But beyond the laughter, the thing that intrigued me most about her is how selfless she is. I haven’t known you for years darling but everyone can’t be lying. Plus your comment on my blog excites me. God bless and direct you dis years sweety.
