Events I May Attend. 
Mind The GapX. I loved the way Dr Lanre talked about it on Monday at the GirlTalk conference but my reservation is that it might feel awkward for single persons. It's actually for singles and married, but I think this is a MUST ATTEND for the married. 


Unusual Praise.
I couldn't attend The Experience so I don't want to miss this. I would really love to be there. 


What events are you attending this week? There are a host of others. And please tell us of any you think we should attend. Thank you.

    1. There were too few writers in November, three or less. So I'd have to carry them over to the next #WriteRight.

  3. I would also have loved to attend that GapX program but contrary to what it says in the invite, all the events, even the talks/speeches are for people in relationship or marriages so, no...

    I wouldn't mind the early investing event tho..

    1. Yeah I think it might be very awkward for singles who attend cos Lanre gave us a rundown of the itinerary and it's all very coupley. There's even going to be lots of games and exercises for couples. So while all that is going on what will I be doing biko? Maybe they will take us to one corner and ask us to pray for a life partner... 😣
