We thought it was going to be the last day of the great feast but as things are right now, we are slated to have a bigger feast by tomorrow morning; The Chancellor has declared he wants to lay His annointed hands on each one of us before we leave, so...we patiently await that session.

TTG was yet again explosive today. I cant believe I ended up enjoying TTG.
The impression we had about it before we started was a far cry from what we are experiencing right now. We had fun most of the time.

As I arrived in chapel today and I was looking for where to seat, someone a friend introduced to me yesterday offered me a seat and I had one of the most humbling or should I say overwhelming moments in CU.
The magazine she had in her hands contains 3 of my articles and I'm also on the production team as well, and in the course of the not-so-interesting 1st lecture, she was taking notes from the magazine! I've never seen anyone read a magazine with so much interest and intent...I was shocked.
I was moved when I saw the previous notes she had on taken on the other articles, well u need to understand how I felt when I saw the notes she took on my piece...I felt substantial, I was elated! And to crown it all she had this sticky note that read "search for Tolu Akanni on Facebook" and........I felt like I was living the dream!
We had a very interesting career discussion and I'm pretty impressed by her drive and what trips me most about her is her insatiable thirst for knowledge....it's on a strange order!

We wrote TTG exams.
In my usual fashion, I was lucky to find my way in to do it with the 1st batch, and thank God I did. I heard they had server problems after the 1st batch finished..these ppl and their technology!
I did the 30mins test in 10:06mins and I had 50/60....and I'm happy we are not that plenty on the 50s list...so I did 'exclusively' good!!

Funny enough, just like the heavens heard my complaints about the down turn in numbers of business talks I've been having lately...I was caught with a CEO friend discussing business for close to 3hours after the TTG exams!
Another friend stopped by in the course of our discussion and from our talk, I might doing a 10mins presentation on "brands to watch out for" at the launch since I already have something 'El Fiz' cooking as well

I changed my mind about rushing out to Lagos, I need to do some comprehensive paper work before I hit that city....I pray touch of tomorrow opens me up to another level of inspiration needed to effectively pull it off.
