So I've been trying to adapt to Sokoto and so far, it's been survival mode oh.
I stay in the corper's lodge and I have two roomies, not like it's a big room, it's a 6 x 5 or there about but then, a begger has no choice abi? I wanted to get a house outside of the lodge but considering the fact that Northern Nigeria is volatile and I do not speak their language (It's frustrating when you are talking to these people and they say 'no English'), I decided against risking my precious life for comfort.
I kind of received each of my roomies with hesitation (I was the first occupant) and initially, it was strange having to wake up to strangers and knowing it will be that way for the next couple of months; it was like we were walking on pins, not wanting to step our feet too hard so we don't get hurt but then, it's been hard. *sigh*
One is quiet but strange; I mean who rubs soap on her body before applying cream? The first day she did it, I was too shocked to talk but the fifth time, I just had to blurt it and man, all hell was let loose. She was like that is the way she has been doing all her life, nobody can change her, blah blah blah and oh well, I've left her alone. Afterall is it my skin?
The other one can nag for Africa!!!! fuck!!!! I mean we've all got issues too honey! She nags about how I wash, how I drink too cold things, how I leave my suitcase open and I'm like leave me the fuck alone!!!
With the other girls, every morning, someone must bitch about who stole her water or who used the toilet and didn't flush etc....but you know that we all need drama once in a while innit? after all if life is too smooth, it becomes boring.
P.S I read with shock Jay's comment here , and my mouth was hanging for over 2 minutes and I want to address the issue here; Yes, I appreciate every click I get (tomorrow is our one year blogoversary) and I adore everyone who takes time to spend extra effort to comment but what I will not tolerate is any form of insult on either me or another visitor.
He typed this "Amaka n love guide sef! Have You ever tried putting a post on how to be successful in exams, how to set academic goals, how to start up a small business with minimum capital, how to achieve success, how to make Ideas work, how to build a dream with elevators in it?
This is a reality blog for crying out loud n I think this love love love isn't helping. Pls upgrade n know that money is needed to finance love, success keeps love alive. Love can't exist in absence of moral value, teach Us how to build morals.
Its high time I visit blogs, read posts that'll keep My brain thinking hard. Remember a post You dropped late last year, till date I still visit that page for inspiration. Seriously, You messed My day... Wish Me exams luck jare...
Here is my reply: this is a reality blog and I blog whatever comes to my mind, however, if you feel you are not getting enough content here, you could point it out to me without being uncouth or go to those blogs that offer what you desire.
Post your thoughts away!
