On 26th November 2019 at the Nigerian Law School Bwari, Abuja I was called to the Bar.🥳 Your Gem was called to the Nigerian Bar with distinctions. Yh, this bookie knows small book.🥳
On 27th I enrolled at the Supreme Court of Nigeria as a Barrister and Solicitor.
‘Everyone has their time. Yours will come into itself when it should. Be patient and proactive.’
Words my Mum told me over 6 years ago when my educational career took unexpected detours. My life generally has been a journey that keeps surprising me. I’m grateful for the many people, experiences and books I’ve met along the way.
Thank you for accompanying my adventures and enjoying my content as I juggled Law School at Yola. I appreciate your support Gem.
I encourage you not to give up. Cheers to new beginnings🥂
Remember, time rewards consistency.
27 Nov 2018 I flew out of Lagos to resume at Yola Law School Campus.
First day at Nigerian Law School, Yola. A senior colleague and namesake who graduated from Yola said I should make history. I guess I did.
A brief history of badly behaved women. Morieba, Moremi,Kudirat and Tola were victims of Alagbado clan’s long-held tradition of silence, connivance and duplicity, until Raufu Alagbado(aka OloriEbi, Raffie the Razor) sets off a series of events in an attempt to make his dead sister’s Will permanently disappear. Murder, betrayal, revenge..a woman’s body is a crime scene.
The book kicks off with the death of Alhaja and Moremi learning how to mourn and how society can make one invisible. We also meet Tolu a woman who is healing from a C-section delivery, not leaving her bed ignoring her new born baby and family. There is a guardian demon..I’m excited about this book. I had to buy a personal copy at ALitFest 2019.
Have you heard or read this book? Comment your thoughts Gem.
Guess whose back?! *in Nadia Rose’s voice* Its weird to hear rain in Yola caused an hour flight delay. 3rd term of Nigerian Law School begins, pray for me Gems.
My Max Air Experience
My Dad was excited to book with them because they are new airline. They made mistake registering my name which wasn’t corrected. However it was highlighted to boarding staff. I boarded hitch free. None of my belongings are missing or were tampered with. I enjoyed the MaxAir Flight and pastries. But not the initial turbulence or plane noise. Their ticketing staff were cordial though. I’m thankful for journey mercies. Now I have to unpack and settle into campus.
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.
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.
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
