So I have settled in fine.
Luckily for me, my rent is bills inclusive so I am running my heater 24/7 I do not caree.
My laptop is up and running. with the Microsoft office thingy! Thank you Lekan.
I am totally technologically inept so you can imagine the struggle to get it working.
I do not understand how these people here can be fat- see ehn. They walk every where.
And by everywhere, I mean everywhere. My GOD. struggle life.
I have lost enough weight JUST by walking in the cold, I doubt I would ever get used to it.
I am finding it hard to make friends- as I suspected. I still have only one friend a lawyer who is Nigerian and I met on the plane to scotland.
While we aren't " friends friends" like that- she reminds me of home/work a lot. in that she speaks only yoruba to me. and the strange part is that I understand a lot of it. we actually have conversations where she is speaking only Yoruba and I am replying her in english.
She is yet to ask me why I have not replied her in Yoruba, but continues to speak it to me.
People like her make the world go round.
I miss home- This goes without saying. I wish I took some more time off from work before coming here.
I am as unsettled as I was last January. And I have exams in two weeks.
I am just like- Yah!
I miss the Lover so fucking much. It is ridiculous. and its the tiniest things that make me miss him. especially during this microsoft struggle- I would have just gone to dump the laptop at his place and not even care what ever happens.
Because he would have gotten it done.
Or when I went to buy a new hat and had no one to make the choice with.
I think a part of me- A huge part of me, the person I am, or have become in the last couple of years is heavily influenced by my relationship with him, so leaving for a year is harder than I thought it would be..
My friend suggested sneaking into the country to visit him.
I do not think I miss him that much. YET.
I miss my weekly yoga classes, and I miss the fact that the reminder goes off every week.
I need to get a job, I also need to find a saloon to tint my brows and do my nails.
Im rambling. Although school just started- I think I need a break.
LOL I actually just need some heat. The weather is too fucking cold.
But I love the personal space and living alone and most importantly finding my things exactly where I left them.. For me, that alone makes all of it worth it.
