So I turned 22 yesterday and while I haven't accomplished much last year, I plan to change that. First, in the mind department, I will read books from Africa. First, I am going to try and learn the stories behind Nigerian personalities (I lived there for a year) and I think Achebe is a good place to start (Achebe was an Igbo who was around during the Nigerian Independence). Next, I will want to study about at least two wars in the Area and Liberia. Let us see how that goes.
Apart from that, my project for the year has begun taking shape and I am feeling a bit better about my PhD career. Hopefully I will do well here on and accomplish a lot.
Next, I need to lose weight. I take to comfort food and when things are not going well, I put on those pounds. That needs to change.
