Nigeria so far

Just chilling today

So I have been here a while and quite a lot has happened. When I say a lot has happened I meanĀ  I have reconsidered it but the truth is am happy to see Mom so happy and healthier too. First off I hate the phone service in Nigeria why should I pay for services and they are not always delivered? LOL . Anyway am managing with the good internet we have truth be told. Other things that have opened my eyes is the fact that anything that I think isĀ  irrational is rational in Nigeria.I changed my phone service to MTN which is not owned my Nigerians and the service is supposed to be better. When I first came to Nigeria Mom picking fights with like everyday. I wanted to save money and run back to the states cause my return date is Feb. 29 lol. I had to maximize my efforts in dealing with her and it has paid off. Now we get along very well everyday is smooth and drama free. I think being here is helping her health and she seems happier and that gives me a special feeling inside. I have registered for NYSC today and tomorrow we will meet with Mom’s contact to help with the posting. I haven’t really taken any pictures of myself since I have been here,but will be posting many up in the future I promise. Well gotta go rub Mom’s back lol I will try to write about my week at the end of it. The only thing is I will be in camp for most of March so will not be writing anything really hope to read your blogs too!!!

Stress reduction in 2012

By the end of 2011 I was feeling so stressed out, I decided that this year would be different. No more “I don’t have time”, or “I’m so busy”, or “I spent the entire week and weekend studying and didn’t see my family”, or the most redundant of them all “I’m so stressed out”. Grabbing life by the horns was my New Year’s resolution. It’s now February; I don’t know how that happened. I could’a sworn the year started a week ago. I’ve spent most of 2012 being depressed and studying, and that’s the opposite of what I wanted for this year. I need to change course…

Step 1: I postponed my first board exams till July. Knowing that I wouldn’t be getting this exam over with now is part of what got me depressed.

Step 2: We booked our flights to the States. We’ll be there from the end of March to mid-April.

Step 3: …any suggestions?

Oh yeah, one major thing stressing me out is the fact that I haven’t been able to get the financial aid money from last semester. That means we’re deep in debt and it’s not looking better. We’re going to the States anyway though, because we promised to use the wedding money for a trip… and we really need it.
