This is obviously the last post for the year. I’m thankful to God for helping me unleash this initiative. I’m also thankful for the sweet comments, criticisms, and topic suggestions. They make me better.
I never thought people from 32 countries will have access to my blog. To those who share my posts, God richly bless you 🙏🏽. I’m really grateful for your support.
15 posts in nine months!!!😫😫. It hasn’t been easy but God’s grace kept me and still keeps me going. The best is yet to come, I believe.
One thing I’ve learned this year is to start what you want to achieve. Don’t wait to be perfect. Don’t wait for a new year. Start now. Make mistakes, learn from them and move on.
There’s nothing wrong with starting a business on 31st December. You can end a year on a good note by achieving your biggest goal.
May we see each other next year in good health and sound mind.
A glorious New Year to you all 🎊🎉🥳.
Now, let’s raise our glasses in cheering 2020 because we know by faith that, it has something good in store for us.
It’s the last month of the year and we ought to be so thankful to God. It’s not by magic that we’re still alive.
Don’t forget the reason for the season, Jesus Christ, when you’re making merry. Pray, pray and pray. The devil isn’t on strike. Know how and where to eat. Enjoy yourself but be very careful.
Christmas is about adding value. Spend quality time with friends, family and loved ones. This, even, should be a daily routine and not just during the Christmas season.
Make sure to put a smile on someone’s face. Give wholeheartedly. Some people are always expecting gifts but never want to give. Give to people who won’t be able to give back. That’s how we receive our blessings through giving.
Appreciate every gift you receive no matter how little it is.
Spend wisely. Don’t use all your December salary and Christmas bonus on chilling 😂😂. January is staring at you. The only month that behaves like a year 😂.
Christmas is also a source of stress for many people. Give yourself time to relax this Christmas season. It sounds impossible to some people. Remember that your health is important. You’ll need energy to return to work.
May we all have a peaceful celebration without any form of casualties.
People under this code involve themselves in activities that are practical, work on hands-on problems and find solutions to them. They sometimes also deal with real world materials such as; animals, plants, wood, tools and machinery stuff. Many of the occupations do not involve a lot of paperwork or working closely with others.
People under this code work with an extensive amount of thinking. These occupations can involve researching for facts and figuring out problems mentally. They also like to study and solve maths or science problems.

Now, in creating your Holland Code, Dr. Holland didn’t say that a person is just one of these types. If it is so, then there would be only six types of people in the world.
However, only 3 letters are necessary to create a useful description. So, a Holland Code is a three-letter code that is made up of an individual’s controlling personality types, out of the six.
For instance, you can have a code that will be SEA. This means that, the person has the traits of being social, enterprising and artistic. Some occupations under this code are: Public Relations Specialists, Music Producers, Clergy, Firefighters, Cosmetologists, News Analysts, Script Writers etc.
These codes increase the satisfaction of your career selection and also enable you to match your interests, skills, traits and abilities.
The closer your personality type aligns with your work environment, the more likely you are to find fulfillment at work.
If you want to know your Holland Code, you can visit the Careers and Counseling Centre at the University of Ghana or see any Psychologist to take the test.
Congrats for making it to uni 💃🏽🎉🎊. Here’s a short message from me to you.
Respect everyone you see on campus irrespective of height. The shortest person might be your lecturer.
Be studious and build your GPA especially in level 100.
Choose friends wisely and be good to them. The real ones will stay through thick and thin.
Don’t choose a course because your friend or roommate is choosing it. You may regret in future.
Involve yourself in school activities. Well, not every single activity but make sure you do something positive aside academics.
Take up leadership roles. You can start by volunteering to be a course rep.
DRESS DECENTLY. You can still look good when you’re decently dressed. Don’t think it’s a university and you have your freedom so you can do anything anyhow. University is an educational setting. Not a pageantry. Respect your dignity.
If you reside in a hall or hostel, please, go to church on Sundays unless you have an exam. Don’t be lazy.
Check your students’ mail everyday. Let it be part of your social media. Mostly, opportunities like; scholarships, internships and even national service are sent there and a lot of people have missed it.
Also, read and research about anything or any place you’d be doing or visiting for the first time on campus just to save time to avoid being “lost” on campus.
Ask questions when you’re in doubt of anything. No one can read your mind. It’s normal to be confused in level 100.
Have fun and enjoy campus life in general but make sure the enjoyment is sensible.
Please don’t be afraid to talk to someone when you’re facing any form of difficulty. Make good use of the Guidance and Counselling Centre in your school or talk to a reliable friend.
Last but importantly, take prayers very seriously. Ask the Holy Spirit for directions when you’re confused. Friends may mislead you.
I wish you the very best in your studies and all other activities. Congratulations once again!! 🤗
