Bookie Life Update

My Bar Finals Exams are over! I can now stop romancing Law School textbooks. It’s been an intense journey from November 2018, studying at the Nigerian Law school for a Bachelor at Law(B.L) and enrollment into the Nigerian Bar. All that’s left are results and Call.

Gosh! My boundless gratitude can submerge the Atlantic.

I’m going to rest and rejuvenate. Next week I’d begin sharing book reviews and more.

I picked up Logan Feburary’s In The Nude yesterday evening. Finally! I’m so excited to read one of my favourite poet’s first and widely commended, full length poetry collection. I mean, read the amazing mini review by PageBookStore above!

The titles of the poems, the rhythm, their pulling depth and intimate imagery…wow. I’ll share a reading update later in the weekend.

Do you have a weekend read? Tell me little about it.

My Book Date at Keke Kafe, AUN Yola.

I enjoy going on food dates alone with my books. See where I visited this time!

Sunday evening I visited Keke Kafe at the American University of Nigeria, Club House in Yola, Adamawa.

I was pleasantly surprised with the artistic beauty of the Keke Kafe.

I needed a different space to study. So I pack up my Criminal Litigation textbook, study and draft book and took a walk to the Clubhouse which is opposite my Law School campus. I was pleasantly surprised with the artistic beauty of the Keke Kafe.
Its decor was reminiscent of Lagos. But then yellow kekes(tricycles) are the largest means of public transport in Yola.

I ate delicious (but dry) rich, chocolate cake at Keke Kafe. My Chalet mate recommended the cake. They also sell coffee and other pastries. I ate pizza and studied Charges afterwards by the poolside.

I’d postponed going to go eat pizza at AUN since I arrived at Yola. I’m at this phase where I’m comfortable knowing I met my saving goals for an experience or thing and then not doing or getting it. Who else has experienced this?

I swung first at the children swing set.


Thanks for reading Gem! I do hope you find time to visit a cafe or restaurant alone with your current read in an artistic and chill ambience and relax.

Next to my love for books and beating my reading goals. I love lingerie. I just got these exquisite ones from BE_NEATH, a Lagos based Lingerie Store. I’m currently seated in rosy sunlight and soft lace drafting petitions.

I’ll be sharing pictures and lessons from ALitFest19 I attended in Abuja last weekend later this week.

Dont forget to breathe and glow Gem.

MY BOOK DATE and READING UPDATE

Today after our case at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, Area 11, Abuja. I decided to treat myself to solitary lunch. Long time no self date! I’ve been craving and daydreaming about the Cheese Chicken Shawarma from Barkono Grill.

READING UPDATE

I’m happy that I’m wrapping up my 2nd general revision for Bar Finals. I still have about 2 topics to touch in 3 courses. Yay to reading progress! The best advice I got from a friend was to draft a study timetable and to regularly practice past questions. I’ve tried to follow both. The great part of it is that at work, we Externs answer multiple choice questions before we go home daily.

BOOK DATE

I got foodgasms from Barkono cheese chicken shawarma for lunch while being serenaded. My heart, ears and tastebuds were delighted. Whitney Houston- I Look to You, Lay My Love on You-West Life, You’ll Be in my Heart-Elton John, Shayne Ward-Breathless played, I and other customers sang along. I remember going there the first time and falling in love with all the wonderful songs they played.

Barkono Grill is such a cosy space (to read or go on a self date). You can work with your laptop there. Their playlist is filled with songs that will give you auditory orgasms. The food is affordable and delicious. Plus their order hotline and attentive staff. *muah I called the number on their website to order my shawarma and got directions. When I got there I waited less than 10mins and my fries took lesser time. I had to leave back to work and they packed my meal in a takeaway pack.

My ideal Friday night is spent in bed with a book after my pamper skincare routine. Right now, I’m eating my leftovers and studying Criminal Litigation. I’m about to do my night skincare routine

Have fun this weekend Gems.
