My exams are finally over. After being in school for Eight months with less than four weeks of holiday within the months, its finally over. I screamed for joy after I finished my last paper. Some students were just looking at me and wondering if I was okay. I was just happy.
Spring is almost over and summer is just around the corner. Sunshine, warm, less clothes etc. But I wonder if Im just waiting for the summer holidays more than a summer job? Anyway, Ill just enjoy the time I have now. Slowly, the sun is sending its warm rays to earth and everything all around me is waking up; the flowers, trees and animals as well as human beings. Finns are now being friendlier and much more relaxed. Finally, the long cold winter is over. Now that everyone is awake, things have started to happen. I took a good look around and I realised that couples are walking hand in hand and birds are singing to attract mates (I dont know if its true but thats my imagination). For those of you who are single, you may be longing for this but then dont worry; its okay to admit it. You will find a good one soon. Trust me!
Three months of holidays! What am I going to do? It sounds so much but time really flies. I guess Ill just go along with the rhythm of each day as it goes by. I know many people will be happy because its summer again. Going to the parks, lying on the beach like a lizard, rowing and sailing or for most of you working. Even if you work 24/7, find time out of no time to treat your self to something special and enjoy yourself for once. For me, its time to work and do thorough cleaning of my flat and put all my books, winter clothes and hats in order. The
sun with its penetrating light shows the dust all over the house even the corners I dont usually clean. The attack against dirt has started. People have started to wash their windows. Some have changed their car wheels into summer wheels and guys are polishing their dear cars for the summer season.
At the beginning of the school year last September, I set some goals for myself. I promised myself to finish my preliminary thesis before the end of May and I made it. At least one of my goals for the school year has been achieved and there are more to be achieved. I wonder how many of you reading this has been working towards your own goals. Over the past few years, I have learned more and more that Im able to achieve things by setting myself some targets and focusing my energy on them. It has not been easy. Sometimes I just wonder! I have not been able to do this alone and thanks to the help of God and to my wonderful friends who have been there to encourage me. Queen you are always there to listen and Seun, you always know how to put me back on the right track and you know the right thing to say to make me smile again. To you also Tunde thanks for the ideas and also to my other friends. You guys are great and thanks a lot for the support, encouragement, calls and especially your prayers.
To all asorockers both at home and abroad, I wish you a lovely summer and make use of your time wisely guys and to those of you travelling for the holidays, have a wonderful holiday. Shout out to all my Finnish comrades on asorock, I know well all get together one of these days dont worry. Its not hard for me to find you.
Peace and love,
