My Week #47 In Review 2016

Dancing Till 3am In The Morning, Playing With A Rat's Aorta And Fashion Show 2016 And Following God's Divine Direction

Last set of run throughs before Fashion Show/ Messing about at 2am in the morning during our last run through/ Show night/ Me on stage on the show night/ My fairy lights started working again./ I finally took out my purple extensions.

This week, we had our last set of rehearsals before Fashion show and since the show was on the 24th and 25th, we had the first three days to polish up our dances. On Wednesday, we had our last set of run throughs which started at 4pm and went on till 3am in the morning. I was surprised we still had a lot of energy during the final run through that we decided to get involved in other people's dances as well. It was so much fun and it got me all excited for the show.
The show nights came and it was a very exciting experience. Our African dance was amazing and everyone loved our #blacklivesmatter theme. My co-choreographer and I had worked so hard to put the dance together so we could pass on the message and we are so glad that everyone got the message. It was a lot of hardwork but it was all worth it in the end. I am glad that I now have my free time back now so I can catch up on my work.

This week, we had a practical where we were investigating the contraction of smooth muscle in a rat's aorta. We experimented with different drugs and monitored the effect of the drugs on the muscle contraction using a computer simulator. I thought the practical was quite interesting and I loved learning about how these other drugs worked.

Do any of you ever get times when you feel like the message preached in church was God speaking directly to you? Well I got that this Sunday and I believe that it was God's voice directed at me to comfort me during this very critical time of my life. I have had a few struggles recently which have kinda made me lose focus on my goals but God always has a way of encouraging me to stay strong and keep trusting Him.

Quote of the week

"It only takes one step for you to get closer to your destiny. In order not to miss that step, you need divine direction."

My Weeks #45 and #46 In Review (2016)

Paediatric Soceity Lecture, Donald Trump Wins The US Elections, Getting Feedback For My Essay, FS First Weekend Rehearsals, Socials, Convinced 2016 And Operation Christmas Child

I have been away for way too long because I have been super busy with uni and dance rehearsals and I haven't really had time to update you guys on my uni life. The show is in a few days so I will have my free time back. I have a lot of posts that will be coming up in the next couple of weeks so I am looking forward to sharing with you guys. This week, I bring you a two week update so enjoy :)

Christian Union movie night/ Dinner with my uni daughter at Dip and flip. The milkshake was really good/ Sweets at one of the lunch bars/ Packing a box for Operation Christmas Child/ Burgers at Dip and Flip/ Curry at Fashion Show social/ Trying to go through neurology notes/ Food at one of the lunch bars

Some of you may know that for this year, I am the secretary of my university's paediatric soceity. We had our first ever lecture of the year  2 weeks ago and we had 5 paediatricians come in and talk to us about why they chose paediatrics and what they love and hate about the specialty. It was a really interesting talk and the questions asked at the end were really thought provoking.

The victorious win of Donald Trump 2 weeks ago came as a shock to some people and honestly I was not at all surprised by the results. It is in times like this that I see that the human values and what people believe to be right and wrong has been completely flipped around. I know though that God is in control and nothing would happen if it weren't His will.

I also finally got feedback for the first draft of my  essay. It was very helpful because my tutor printed everything out and gave me such detailed feedback so I can be able to work on the changes she suggested. I have already started making the neccessary changes and I will hopefully be finished well before the deadline.

My past 2 weekends have been filled with rehearsals on both Saturday and Sunday and so it has been so busy. Our African dance is looking really good and I am really loving the progress we have made so far. I especially love the fact that our dancers have fun with the dance. It warms my heart to see that they have fun with it and it just makes all the hard work worth it. I can't wait for us to perform it on the show nights. We also had a social for all the cast of the Fashion show and we went to a curry house. The food was really good and it was such a fun night. 

Last week was a week of event organised by the Christian Union. We had lunch bars every day all week and we had speakers give talks on the big questions like is there life after death?, does christianity cause wars?, was Jesus' death significant?, Is Jesus the only way? and has science buried God? I thought the talks were very interesting and they spearked some really interesting questions. We also had a movie night where we watched the movie Hurtlocker and also a CU dinner. The food was really good and the whole week was really amazing with a lot of amazing testimonies.

This year, I also decided to take part in the charity called Operation Christmas Child. If you have never heard about this charity, I will be doing a whole new post about it so keep an eye out for that.

How has your week been?

My Week #44 In Review (2016)

Week 2 Fashion Show Rehearsals, First Draft of SSP1 Deadline, Guy Fawkes Night And Home For The Weekend
Fried rice, jollof rice and chicken from home/ Guy Fawkes night fireworks/ A nigerian meal called moi moi/ Me cooking jollof rice/ Soup for lunch

This week was the second of our rehearsals for Fashion Show and I have to say that our African dance is coming on really well. The dancers are picking up the moves really well and with hard work and a lot of practice, I think it will look amazing on the show day.

I submitted the first draft of my essay this week and it was nice to finally have a breather after reading so many research papers and staring at the screen for ages trying to write out what you understand from so many words. My similarity report on turnitin was 15 percent which scared me for a bit but after looking at the things that were picked up as similarities, I was reassured that it didn't really matter.

I spent Guy Fawkes Night at home with my family and it was such a lovely weekend. It was nice to see my siblings and parents after a while and it was nice to just have a little break from university so I had a lovely time at home. 

Song Of The Month
You're Bigger by Jekalyn Carr

"The devil is an opposer and he will never tell me the truth. Anytime he tells me I'm not something, I always say "I am that". 
Anytime he tells me I am something, I always say "I'm not that". 
I know that God is bigger"
