January 2018 In Review
New Year's day roasted fish/ I watched Jumanji with my brothers at the cinema/ I was writing my essay at home and my brothers bought me MacDonald's/ Drinking from my favourite science mug/ Prepping to do my last set of experiments in the lab/ The first Christian Union meeting of 2018/ Baked beans and toast/ First clinical neuroscience lecture/ I made fried rice/ Having some hot chocolate for motivation/ Trying to stay hydrated/ Trying to stay on top of my healthy diet.
I started going to the gym again this year. I have been really consistent which I am happy about./ I ordered the proof copy of my book "Outpourings of A Beloved Heart"./ Me trying to understand what the lecturer was on about in lectures/ I made chilli con carne/ I made egusi soup for the first time/ Having sausages, veggies and veggie mash/ Writing my dissertation
Favourite Quote Of The Month
"If you think you have blown God's plan for your life, rest in this; You my beautiful friend, are not that powerful. It may take longer...
but you'll get there.
I came to university on the 7th of January and I submitted my first in-course assessment for my Science of reproduction module on the 11th of January. I did a vlog all about it and you can watch it below if you want. I have two modules this semester called Biomedical Research Techniques for Drug Development (BRTDD) and the other is Clinical Neuroscience (CN). I think they are both really interesting. I love learning about research techniques in BRTDD and I also love the clinical aspects of CN. I think both modules compliment each other really well. I only have lectures on Thursdays and Fridays which means I have Monday to Wednesday to work on my dissertation.

Research Project Update
So I finally finished doing all my experiments in the lab which felt really good. This has given me a lot of free time to work on writing up my results and my discussion chapter. The first draft of my dissertation is due in less than a week from today. I have finished writing a very rough draft and now I have to do some edits so I hope it will all be done well before the deadline. I am not very stressed thank God. I am actually enjoying the writing process which may seem a bit strange. I love what my research is about which I guess helps and I actually do miss working in the labs. I did a study with me vlog which you can watch below if you want to.

And finally, I ordered a proof copy of my book "Outpourings Of A Beloved Heart". This book is a 30 day poetry devotional about God's love. I started writing it in April 2017 and I finished the first draft in July 2017. I also started making edits and finally ordered a proof copy. I am so excited to share this book with you guys. I have given a few people to read to get feedback and I will hopefully finalise edits and publish it soon.
Unboxing My Book From Createspace
Below is one of my favourite videos from this month. I talked about the beauty of sharing our struggles and testimonies with others so they can get a glimpse of God's love too.

Song Of The Month- Take The Stage by Nathaniel Bassey
"Take the stage Lord and have Your way. I'm just a vessel and nothing more. And when You're done please take the glory. I'm satisfied just to see you glorified."
