I went back to study this year.

In the wee hours of January 1, 2016, strolling home from the midnight mass, Kabiyesi had asked

“What are your set goals for this year?”

I smiled

“I’m going after everything, afresh”

More often than not, these days, I feel like an egg waiting to hatch. Growth is never a work over, the push, strains, but the vision remains pure.

Today, adaugodiary.com has brought me out to play. Simply honoring her invitation to reveal.

Here goes:

Firsts

Best friend: My first best friend was a pretty muslim girl, who was my seat partner in a catholic primary school. Her name was Yemi Moses. We had a pretty tearful break-away moment, when I moved on to secondary school in primary five, and she had gone ahead to primary six. I was scared of the future without her, who would teach me long division?

I still don’t know long division, and haven’t seen Yemi since. Do you know where she is?
