There is always a first time in life when we get to attempt new and different things. I seemed to have experienced a lot of 'first times' these past few months. And my experiences, nontheless, were fondly memorable. I will try as much as possible to make it short so as not to bore you.
It was the first time I ever tried dumpling and chicken - loved it! I attempted to make it afterwards and luckily it didn't turn into a disaster. Except when I got to find out later on that I should have mixed the corn flour in a little water to thicken the broth. Of course, that was like administering medine after death. Needless to say that I ended up with a few lumps in my broth because I had sprinkled the dry corn flour directly without mixing in water.
It was the first time I ever visited a Museum. You can scoff all you want. But yes, a museum! I visited the Natural History Museum in South Kensington on boxing day. And it was a far cry from the preconceived ideas I held about museums. I was awed by the many attractions this museum has got to offer. I was particularly intrigued by the dinosaurs, the birds and the human analogy galleries. It wasn't boring at all.
Although it wasn't the first time I have been an auntie, but it was the first time I was at delivery, held a day old baby and get to change a nappy. My nephew, Onyinye was born last month and watching his development is interesting at the same time amazing (I'm not talking about the late nights though).
Aside from my writing and online blogging experience, I officially got my first freelance copywriting experience. It's been challenging but very fulfilling. Challenging in the sense that it involves a lot of intense researching which can be mentally draining at times and having to combine writing several articles in a week with my part-time job. Fulfilling in the sense that I'm finally getting to do what I have always enjoyed doing. Seeing your creativity out in the media is the best feeling in the world.
I could go on and on about the experiences I have had within the last few days and months but I wouldn't want to bore you with my stories. Rather, why not share your own first time experiences with me and your feelings at the time.
