Happy New Year! 2014 was quite a year for me. A milestone year indeed. One of the biggest things that happened for me was my long awaited trip to Nigeria. It's something I've been wanting to do for a long time (see my posts I said I wanna go to Naija, my mom says no, no no  and Visiting Nigeria: My Rationale). Though it was sad that some key family members had died before I got a chance to visit, I was still so happy to see my family. I heard stories and learned valuable pieces of my family history. I got to see Naija life firsthand, from crazy Lagos traffic, to the cool calm of the village. It was definitely the highlight of my year.  I plan to make it my business to go once a year, at least.

In 2014, I learned some key life lessons, on dealing with people, managing finances and having an emergency fund, and preparing for my future. I met great people, redefined old relationships and friendships, and grew one year wiser.

Overall, it was a good year, and I'm expecting even more from 2015.

This was my anthem last year, and I'm keeping it rockin' this year.

Tim Godfrey - Amen

Your life e go betta o, amen, amen. 
Family go betta o, amen, amen. 
Everything go betta o, amen 
E go betta o, amen
