This Blogpost was initially titled- A Day in the Life of a Jobless Doctor😂😂😂
5:38 am I wake up without planning to. I had roughly 4 hours of sleep with three weird dreams like that.😱
It’s pitch black. No light. Nothing unusual. This is Naija.
6:30 am I’m done with my quiet time- sang from my hymn book, read the bible and prayed. I have a prayer schedule, today’s prayer was on spiritual warfare.
6:37 am I filled in my daily planner. Here’s what the breakdown looks like:
- 6:00-7:00 am Read two books
- 7:00- 8:00 am Edit Blog draft (February: 4 Secrets to waiting well)
- 8:00 – 9:00 am Work on a project (on my laptop)
- 9:00 – 10:00 am Study
- 10:00 – 2:00 pm Hangout with Niyot/Go to the supermarket
- 3:00 – 6:00 pm Study
- 6:00 – 8.00 pm: Publish blog post
- 8:00 – 10:00pm: Telegram group discussion
7:05 am I’m done with the first book (Model Marriage by Deg-Heward Mills). It’s a new one. Interesting read so far.
7:24 am I’m done with the second book too (Jumpstart Your Leadership by John C. Maxwell).
I’m sleepy, I should have my bath.
7:42 am Fresh out of the oven, sorry bathroom. Can you smell the fragrance of my soap? It’s delicious. #TeamJoySoap
7:53 am Now editing the blog draft I want to publish this evening.
8:51 am Done with the blog draft. It looks like it’ll rain, which is a perfect excuse for a quick nap. I’m sleepy.
9:02 am I want to sleep but there’s so much to do. I bring out my laptop to work on my project instead. It has started to rain, I love the smell of rain.
10:05 am I’m done working on the project for today. I shutdown my laptop. The rain has stopped, sadly.
It’s time to check the social media. But before that let me get breakfast…
10:15 am I’m back from the kitchen. Breakfast is nothing serious, just bread and boiled egg. I’m not a fan of morning tea. I don’t like bread either, but what choice do I have?
10:32 am Finished breakfast and spent quite some time scrolling through my messages on whatsapp. I almost forgot I left some cake warming in the oven. It’s for the friend I want to visit (as peace offering) because I’m about 30 minutes behind schedule. 🙈
10:51 am I brushed my teeth, got dressed, used some makeup, wrote a shopping list and tidied my bed.
My dad was kind enough to let me use his car and driver (No, I don’t have a car yet and I can’t drive to save my life). I just called my friend, and guess what? She just left her house too…haha. I think I’ll just go and shop.
11:43 am I just finished shopping, interestingly, I left my shopping list in the car but thankfully I remembered everything I wrote but I spent more than I budgeted. All the same, I’m Thankful for God’s provision.
12:16 pm My friend is here at last. She goes to sort out one or two things while I wait in the lobby. I’m trying to go through my tutorial notebook. There’s a radio playing in the shop, I can’t concentrate on what I want to study, so I give up.
14:37 pm Still at my friend’s place. We just had lunch. Noodles and egg (again, I know). Of course we’ve also gisted non-stop for the past 2 hours or so.
Okay, so the purpose of my visit was to try on two of the attires she made for me, oh did I mention that my friend is a fashion designer? Yup, and she’s really good.
15:59 pm I’m leaving my friend’s place now, my dad’s driver came to pick me. I’m exhausted but it was a time well spent. Yet to study anything today. I know I’m not serious enough and my exam is in about 2 months.
16:10 pm On my way home a friend calls about a job offer in another town. Yeah, I’m job hunting.
She asks me to write an application letter, send it via whatsapp, and she’ll print out and submit herself.
16:23 pm Home and very exhausted. I should get some rest, before thinking about what to fix for dinner. Yawns. *So tired*
16:39 pm My friend calls me back again for a detail concerning the job offer. We discuss briefly then I put my phone on silent mode. I really need this sleep, I’m beginning to have a headache.
18:07 pm I’m awake. Just like I expected, I have 4 missed calls. 2 from my friend, 2 from an unknown number. I call my friend who told me she succeeded with submitting the application. Then the unknown number calls back, I’m expected by 9 am tomorrow, in Ilorin. For an interview, maybe? To go or not to go??First of all, it is time to fix dinner.
18:31 pm It took a while, but I finally figured out what to make for dinner. Semo/Okro/Chicken stew. I’ll be going to Ilorin tomorrow BTW. Just discussed the details with my mum. Mixed feelings but what choice do I have? I do need a job.
18:45 pm Dinner is almost ready. My target each night is to have dinner served by 7pm. While cooking, I’m trying to publish the blog post by adding the necessary images.
19:25 pm Dinner is ready! Yummy!!
20:04 pm I’m done publishing the blog post. Here’s the link
I’ll skip the tonight’s online discussion cos I need to pack for my trip (who knows maybe I’ll get the job on the spot).
21:29 pm Packing, Ironing and Laundry all in progress. I’m exhausted tbh, but I have to try.
22:29 pm I’ve brushed my teeth and washed my face. Laundry and Ironing completed. Almost done with packing.
22:54 pm Done with packing. I’ve noted my expenses for today (thanks to my Requine’s journal expenses tracker). I want to reply a mail now, then log out of social media. After which, I should read my bible, pray then sleep. Tomorrow is a long day.
23:04 pm Here’s my Goodnight video…
Ooops, lights out!!!
It’s pitch black, again. Sighs.
I hope you enjoyed reading this?
