DIARY: When November Brings New Memories

If someone asked you what was so special about November, what would you say? I think it can be so hard to remember specific days and events when every day goes by in a flash, right?

I decided to keep track of the month of November with a few sentences and some pictures.

Memories From November 2017
~November To Remember~


1/11 - My phone mistakenly falls off from a three-storey building while trying to place it on a surface after self-timing it to take a shot. . . Two things that blew my mind is that NOTHING happened to my phone and that it went ahead to snap me before hitting the floor. "November looks good already" I thought.

that's my head sticking out in shock as I watch my phone fall

2/11 - I'm wearing one of my brother's shirts today.

3/11 -  I am de-cluttering my office workstation.

4/11 - Slept well through out the day. Let's just say some Saturdays are for sleeping ;)

5/11 - Purple sandals which I've had since 2014 peep here goes to the bin, after being an embarrassment at church today.

6/11 - A married man who has a son is claiming to like me a lot. No scrap that. A former colleague has recommended me for a copywriting project.

7/11 - Trekked a long distance on high heels because I couldn't get a commercial motorcycle. And there was no slippers in my bag to change into. Phew.

8/11 - I am having dinner with a young married man. Hmmm. . . 

9/11 - "Where are all the okada men?" Lagos is getting harder to live in by the day. Phew.


10/11 - I really like what I wore today. Ankara is bae.

11/11 - Some Saturday's are for sewing. Yeah? Laziness didn't let me finish a simple midi skirt. Smh.

12/11 - In a meeting with the strangers I'd be ghostwriting for.

13/11 - Monday has never more stress-free. I am watching an interesting movie on my laptop - The Devil's Advocate.


14/11 - Hmm . .  This yam with chicken Pepper soup is sumptuous. Thanks mum.

15/11 - I am fasting and praying for something new. My desire is to sing a new song before the year ends.

16/11 - Issa lie!!! I am the only passenger on this BRT bus!!! I'm shockered!
17/11 - A colleague told me he's always looking forward to what Ankara outfit I come up with on Fridays. Lol. Me too.

18/11 - I'm hanging out with the girls at the beach. Some Saturdays are for basking in the freedom that comes from singlehood.


19/11 - Service was colourful. It was a Cultural Day in church. I'm wearing two wrappers. Incredible. 

20/11 - Banky W and Adesua Etomi's traditional wedding, #BAAD2017 is trending on social media and Ebuka is stealing the show with his agbada! "Write about it asap, Amaka." Work calls. 


21/11 - Jeez, I left my phone at home.

22/11 - After midnight prayer I couldn't sleep, I now created a new IG account - @amakawrites. Na wa oh. 

23/11 - Weird that I'm not experiencing the regular excruciating menstrual cramps right now. Issa miracle!

24/11 - Spent so much money on body/skin/hair care products. Can you believe that this bottle of virgin coconut oil is N2550. Jeez!

25/11 - Some Saturdays are for weddings; two besties (chioma and Bright) are now married :) I wonder how many more bridal trains I have left (see here and there) before I become the bride :/


26/11 - I guess I've been walking, jumping and dancing on heels a bit harder lately. I'm limping now because my foot hurts.

27/11 - No heels this Monday morning because my foot still hurts. I feel like a cheerleader after discussing an upcoming sports event with the Youth Executives today. :D


28/11 - Loving this two-buns hairstyle. Got me feeling like a baby girl. *blush*


29/11 - My boss just sent me a well-done email. I'm proud. 

30/11 - I didn't go to the office today. I figured I need to work less and rest at home. "Yes Lord, Peace."

When you open your heart to believe God is weaving and working everyday of your life, you'll realize that there is nothing ordinary about your day.


See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. 
– Isaiah 43:19


If you’ve been joining in on keeping track of your life in a private diary, try with one or two sentence per day. It can be electrifying. It's not too late to start this month.



Your turn; what can you remember about November?
