Thanks to y’all who wished me a Merry Christmas. In view of the fact that I was stuck in Europe, that was the best I could have hoped for. Unfortunately there was no “White Christmas” where I was —so my plan to take some pictures with snow to finally convince the “Doubting Thomases” that I was indeed somewhere in Europe failed to materialize….
Found out that I have this unquenchable “lust” for peanut butter… Yours truly ate it with everything over the Christmas – bread, rich tea biscuits, mixed with pasta.. I would be embarassed to even mention some of the things I did with it….Hopefully I’ll not add more than a few kilograms, and my regular brisk walks will burn it all off…. lol…
Was glad for the break – took time out to play Football Manager 2009 on my laptop.. Ended up top of the Hall of Fame by 2016.
Finally took the advice of a friend and watched 27 dresses . I’ve never being a fan of romantic comedies, especially now when my FB crush is still not showing face.. You know these things have a way of reminding you that you are still very single…..lol.. Anyways, I liked it,(at least it kept me occupied for the lul in activity over Christmas)…. And I definitely will watch it again…..
The next big thing for me is to update my 5 year plan…. Each year I review my goals from the past year on a number of fronts – career, social, humanitarian and educational and set out key action items to progress over the course of the year…. This time one of the activities is to start a more “serious” blog on Nigeria and its issues — hopefully promoting a dialog to identify ways that we as individuals can make a difference in our own small spheres of influence….
A big influence on my life in the latter part of this year has been Rick Warren and his PEACE plan initiative. Hopefully, I can resolve my Spiritual black sheep status and get something useful with my life outside the field of Engineering….
Here’s to 2009….. Hopefully, a year to make a fresh start and make a real difference…. And capture the elusive 19th…
