I come to you guys today with so much joy in my heart! So much excitement! I have to admit that I come with a bit of fear too. On Thursday, I passed out of the NYSC scheme and only my Call to Bar beats the excitement I feel coming to the end of this journey.

What can I say? I’m happy to be done and I know that only God could have kept me through this one year. When I was regretting my decision to stay in Bauchi. When I was broke. Oh God! The times I was broke!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ When I almost killed two girls πŸ˜”(more gist on that later).

God has always been faithful. The end of NYSC signifies the beginning of life as an adult for me. Time to get a job. Get a house. Get a booπŸ˜‰. Life is literally starting.

So far, the hustle has been real. Especially, the last one month. Job hunting is not fun. Neither is looking for a school to get your Master’s degree, especially when you want a scholarship.

But today is for praise, my people! Today is for Thanksgiving! Today is for relaxing and knowing that my room was terribly messy the past few days because I was on packing mode. I couldn’t wait to leave the State of Bauchi and just go home.

As I write this I’m on my way out of Bauchi. My last time as a Corp member. Hopefully I get to visit the state again but if not, I will miss Bauchi just a teeny weeny little bit.

I’m gonna miss my girls, as shown above. I am so grateful I had them. Apart from my sisters I’ve never had a girl gang. I might have a friend who is really close but then it’s just us two and then she would probably have another friend that is even closer to her but who barely rolls with me.

With Debby and Ruth, I was riding the girl gang in bauchi. It feels so good to have girls to talk to as a group. We did it all, talked about everything and I felt so good knowing that there were people who had my back. My jogging team, food, hair and make up team.

I’ll miss CDS. I’ll miss Games Village where I stayed throughout my service year. I’ll miss my friends. So much. So very much.

But we move, my people! We jump. We leap to the next hill and slay it. Then we’ll move on to the next thing with one more star in our crown.

I’m working on a new project. A book about my NYSC experience. I hope to be done soon. I’m telling you guys so that I’m accountable and I don’t fall into the temptation to take my time or be lazy.

NYSC is done guys!!!! Done!!!
