Day 14: Lessons from 2018


So you are not going to see any books here today ( i need y’all to save your wallets there’s a lot of spending to be done this year).

As a closing end to this wonderful project, i wanted to fully reflect on  year 2018. I would be putting little aspects of my Journal in the list of things i learnt this year.

2018 for me was a challenging one. I had to adjust to coming back home and dealing with my fears that seemed larger than life. But through blogging, doing my NYSC and reading i was able to find myself and really define what i wanted to do.

So here’s  what i have learnt this year
