I've been MIA right? Well Its been a hectic week globetrotting and now im finally jetlagged in Philly.
(Onada we should definitely hook up if you are free. I will email you through shutterchance.)
The interview in Sweden was good, it wasn't the usual tests as I had feared. They broke us into groups and gave us case studies to solve and watched how we interacted. We were basically lab rats. I feel confident that I did well, but then I didn't see how the other Nigerian girl performed as she was in another group. I'll hear from the company soon enough! By Gods grace it will be good news.
Sweden is definitely a lovely country to visit AND ARE THE DUDES FOIIINE OR WHATTT? Its a country of beautiful eye candy. I was thankful to Baba God for the lovely art work he had going on there...We all know its not so easy in Nigeria, eye candy is scarce.
Now I'm on my real holiday and going for an MBA course mates’ wedding tomorrow. My first real oyinbo wedding. lol
Oh I'd like to let you all know that North American airlines direct flight to New York is not such a great idea if you are connecting...it basically works if they take off on time but they never do and I got stranded in New York till 3am the next morning waiting for the Amtrak because connecting shuttles and trains had all closed by the time we landed at 9.30pm before going through immigration and customs instead of the scheduled 6pm. The most annoying thing about the airline is that you have to check in 5 hours before departure from Africa! So I got there 7 am, the flight was scheduled to leave at 11.55am but there were fueling issues so we finally took off around 2.30pm and got to New York at 9.30 which is 2.30am Nigerian time. Then I had to wait to get the 3am Amtrak and got to Philly at 4.30am. At that point all I could think was America SUCKS! But now I’m fine :)
NOW HOLD UP!! I was gone for only a few days and a new blog opened and shut down before I could even have a chance to read it. Where’s all the respect for taureanminx, the revolutionary gister, gone???? I mean, couldn't they have waited till I got back? But you know me, gist does not just pass me by, I got to read the blog all the same from enthusiastic copy and paste people! Where would we be without them eh? It was terrible though, not so diff from the Nonso incident. What could these people have done to upset this female cos you all know it’s a female. Anyway bridge over the water.
Now there are some porn videos the likes of Paris Hiltons sex tapes, roaming around on the internet. A 16 year old Nigerian girl (in Nigeria) and her equally young lover filmed themselves having sex. Now it’s out on the internet for the world and her family to see. What’s happening to the moral fabric of our country? My sis will soon be 15 and such a baby, I can't imagine her even kissing a boy yet!!! 16 is so young! And she consented to filming it? What happened to all the smart Nigerian Girls? I’m shocked beyond belief.
