5 THINGS I REGRET NOT DOING IN SCHOOL

So, I am feeling a bit sad today, so I decided to post things I regret. I racked my brain and I am thankful to God that I could only come up with five.

Making this list has really made me consider my life choices.I feel there is still time to make sure this list remains short, so here goes:

1.Seizing more experience     opportunities

I regret not joining a school club like ENACTUS while I was in school. In my defense I was busy with my coursework, but I could have made it work if I wanted to.

2.Making more friends  

I love the friends I have now, but maybe I could have made more. They might not have been close friends but acquaintances, because I am now realizing that networking is a big deal.

Then again I am really bad at keeping in contact, I call my bestfriend like 4 times in a month.

3.Caring less about how people perceived me

In many ways I am still guilty of this. I keep thinking ‘ what will people think’ .I wasn’t sure I wanted my friends to read the blog when I started it.

The thoughts in my head were – what if it wasn’t good enough or witty enough or funny enough .I think my greatest fear in life is to be thought of as unkind or unintelligent.

4.Never singing solo in church 

Okay I know I may very well still get to do this. I regret not doing it in the church after my own heart GRACE chapel, Babcock university.

I can talk to a stadium full of people but as long as I am prepared I feel fine. Singing in front of just ten people makes me lightheaded ,so I never sang solo even though ever semester I promised myself I would.

5.Never learnt how to play a musical instrument 

My friends taught themselves how to play guitars. Which is super cool but I didn’t learn, why? – please refer to flimsy excuse given in number 1. They would have been more than happy to teach me but I never gave them time.

Do you have anything you regret too?  Let me know in the comments.

Also does anyone have any advice for avoiding and moving on from regrets. Please don’t hesitate to share.

 

Oh the Places you will go…. French Elegance

I have decided to start a travel wish list kind of thing, called –Oh The Places You Will Go. I got the phrase from a Dr.  Suess book.

I pick a place and just talk about it,  this is not meant to be a factual guide, just me rambling.

FRANCE 🇫🇷

Why

I want to go to France because I love the French language.I think it is the third best language in the world after Igbo and English of course.

I also want to see all the touristy landmarks like the Effiel tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Place du Concorde, the Seine and the Muse de Louvre. Oh, to walk the streets of Paris, Nice and Normandy, to eat good cheese and drink fine wine  🍷.

When

I hope that 2 years from now after my Msc. Before I join the working class, maybe I will have some money saved up……. MAYBE.

How

If I am in the UK,  I would like to take a use the English channel (if Brexit hasn’t caused them to seal it up lol), and ‘boat’ my way into France. If I am in Nigeria I shall fly (boring and scary).

Famous For

Did you know that France is the world’s most popular tourist destination. France has a six-sided shape so it is sometimes called L’hexagone i.e. The hexagon.

French wines are really expensive costing over a thousand Euros. It’s famous cities include Paris, Marseilles, Lyon, Nice,Le man’s,Cannes and Montpellier.

Looking Forward To 

Eating cheese and sipping wine, eating a baugette, watching a mime perform and having an opportunity to exclaim “Sacre Bleu “😎.

Tell me other places, you would love to see in the comments .

Welcome to My Blog : The adaoraahble Blog

The Adaoraahble Blog

Hello,  my name is Adaora. I decided to start this blog because my friend told me to 😁. Well,  that is not the whole story, at the moment I am in a gap-year induced slump.

I think this is the part of my life where I am not moving forward or backward. The part that is making me really question all the life decisions that led me to this place.

The point is I am bored out of my mind, can’t get a reasonable and equally challenging job. So when my friend suggested I start a blog and I decided to give it a try.

I was really skeptical at first because it made me think of all the ideas I conceived in my mind. But I have never had the heart to follow through on them,  and trust me these past few months there have been a lot of ideas 💡.

However, I decided to follow through on this one,start small and see where it leads. So that no matter what happens , I would have taken a leap and done something different.

I hope this works out well and I have a lot of fun doing this. It is my hope that blogging makes me a better writer, more articulate and helps me sort through the issues.

I also hope that this medium helps me interact with all new people because guess who is shy and anti-social……..THIS GAL.  🙌

So here is to taking things one step at a time, discovering myself and hopefully a great adventure.
