2023: I Escaped

2023: I Escaped


3 min read

Funny title, but that's the reality from January to December. So, you're here to hear some gist about my 2023, say less.

First I just want to take a moment to laugh small, ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ why? the plans I had for 2023 come be like say na small pikin write am, because none of those things really happened.

Secondly, 2023 in conclusion was a rough one for me.. what I ordered was not what I got but in all things, I'm greatly to God for not shaming me regardless. I really wish I had enough strength to give more details about how each month went, the ups and downs, and the stories learned and taught ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Some Quick Statistics

A lot more happened but this is all I can remember, happy reading.

Physical Status - Had zero major problems, hit the gym like it was the last, and added some flesh I struggled to gain thanks to supplements and of course, muscles to steal your babe.

Mental Status - This particular period when I lowkey could not help being unproductive coupled with confusion. This happened because, for a long period, i inhaled so much camphor and did not realize it was messing me up mentally.

Spiritual Status - I understood more that everyone needs to have where they get their power from ( Babalawo included), just pick a side.

Social Status - Someone I saw as a big brother scammed me and I had to end that relationship. Connected with more females than ever this year (don't get me wrong but feel free). Linked up with my previous employee. Convocation happened.

Financial Status - I barely saved this year. Cost me over 10 Million naira to go through the year in one piece.

Career Status - My Contract expired around April and I did not bother applying for new roles particularly because I was not prepared for that mental stress just yet. I completed all freelance projects except one. Started a new role around November. I was in Lagos for OSCA Fest 2023. Tried making sense of my startup ๐Ÿ˜ช. Spoke at Devfest Owerri and Polygon Guild Enugu.

Plans for 2024

I'll spend my time upskilling and improving on existing skills. And making good money. 2024 would make it 7 Years in Tech (clap hand for Jesus). For a long while, I've always wanted to do some ethical hacking stuff, so 2024 is the year of cybersecurity with a focus on Cloud Security, Penetration Testing, and network engineering. I'll recommend you do the same.

I hope to help more people as much as I can in 2024.

I also look forward to daily income.

My Catch phrase for next year would be "Hide your devices", e get why.
