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
Oh wells… Let your popsie catch ya :p
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
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*)
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.
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*
The Resplendent E’
Going FORWARD…Still Testifying
