Off I go....

Okay, I was posted to Nasarawa!. And yes, I didn't believe it either.
****************************************************

I haven't always had that luck when it comes to "legging" something so you could get what you wanted. I heard it from two different people before i even got to the notice board to check for myself. Seeing "NS" got me tears, but i had to conceal those with my shades (big girls don't cry).

Then I started hearing different nice comments about the place, and I hope I find it that way. What got me scared was the fact that it was an Hausa state, and another bother was the other fact I heard the sun there was terrible, and I love my complexion too much to lose it to that kind of sun.

I tried wrapping my head around it, and in the end I got settled with a thought: The moment we went for the initial NYSC Orientation in my school and the Chairman for the Osun State NYSC (one lovely woman like that) was talking about teaching being the only approved job for corpers starting from this year, I immediately felt a connection to the kids I hadn't seen or didn't even know where they resided (our letters weren't ready at the time).

I'm a pretty shy person, and standing in front of a crowd is my disaster button, but I was sort of looking forward to teaching than anything else. I hope I don't change my mind though, but she mentioned the reason for approving only teaching to be because we needed groomed leaders from the scratch. It would be a great impact on the country if kids were nutritiously educated of their various values as individuals and their contributions to making their nation better from a young age. We want Nigeria to be better, it begins with us.

I had various questions and suggestions of redeployment, but in the end, those suggestions were just too uncomfortable for me. I wan't to be an original at least for that one year in that place, and I'm pretty sure I'll leave there knowing that I didn't waste my stay. The Lord is my security, and I'm positive He'll see me through it all. He knows why I was posted there, and He knows how I'll survive and change lives over there too.

I'm just going to thank him, and keep on living and believing. I'm God's own Child.

P.S: Please guys, I need ideas on nice Sunscreen products that you know I can get. I really want to maintain my complexion....thanks!

P.P.S: I might not be constant with blogging anymore, due to the fact that I cant take my laptop over there, but I'll try as much as possible to blog from my phone. I leave for Keffi on Tuesday. Bye guys..

Cheers!!!

Thanks always for stopping by.
Mostly appreciate them.
And as always,
DO come back!!!

Awww.. Don't worry dear. I'm very sure you won't regret it, by God's grace...

Teaching sounds really fun and although just like you I'm very shy, I'm quite confident it's one of the very good ways to make a difference and it is one of the reasons why I look forward to my own service year.

Change starts with each and everyone of us and this is an opportunity to make that change.

Go forth without fear, and be full of hope about the future.
The Lord really is your security...


I use 'Nivea -natural fairness body lotion' and it is a good product. It has ingredients that protect against the harmful effects of the sun and prevent skin darkening.
