His Royal Highness Sir Farouk The Almost Great Humble servant of the universe and its creator if there is one welcomes you to the end of 2013. I know that this day and the end of the year is a time of reflection and ish, normally I should say f*** off with that sanctimonious BS but I guess I have done some maturing or something of the sort. I don’t know which. Here are few things about my 2013
2013 was the year I earned the most money I have ever earned in my life. Now before aspiring kidnappers and 419ers hit me up, I want to clarify that its not like I hit Dangote status but it is the first full calendar year that I have earned a wage from beginning to end.
I fell off my fitness P that I got into between July and December of 2012. The frequency with which I exercised or took morning runs reduced this year. Not like I completely stopped but it was in fits and starts, I had a gym membership for about a month and didn’t renew. I would bore you with excuses but I doubt that would change the fact.
Religiously or in God affairs, papa God and I did not start the year right. This probably has little to do with me being tipsy as the clock hit midnight on 2012/2013. Between the months of January and May I m sure I didn’t go to church more than an average of once a month. It won’t be an issue if it was some philosophical reason behind not going (religiously I think now I define myself as a questioning Christian or catholic who is filled with doubt and a bit bored with religion but trying to make it work), I was just lazy or hungover to go most of the time. I went to church more often and I guess I started praying more as the year wore on. For now, God and I might be back to acquaintance level.
Continuing on the theme of sin and sinfulness, I engaged in some ashewo behavior in the earlier part of the year, that and just so much alcohol and partying. A lot of fun was had and a lot of risk was taken. Driving back home late in a dangerous South South town known for carjacking and kidnapping is not the P. I definitely did the whole turn up thing between the months of January and May. As with other things in 2013 I chilled out in the latter part of the year.
I have no idea if it is related but I starting chatting with someone in May. Meeting her has had some positive influence on my life. Now I wont call her Lady Farouk because that person is fiction but I am glad I met this person in 2013. If it works out or not in the future, I definitely know that meeting her was a good thing, She should collect her sub and know I m thankful for her XO. Abeg abeg abeg free those mushy thoughts that are forming in your head. It is a lie! *points accusing finger*
2013 was the year I attended the most weddings I have ever attended in my life. Goodness gracious! What is wrong with the people I know, did they blow a whistle for all of you to start getting married. Behave yourself!
In this year I survived an accident. I was almost hit head on by a truck. Came out unscathed but spent a bit to fix the car. So definitely thankful for that.
Didn’t blog as much as I wanted this year but oh well there is always next year. As everyone gets ready to enter the new year, I beg you all to be safe. Party and Pray appropriately. Lol So folk, what happened to you in 2013? Share and Confess. I am ever ready listening
