Quarter of a Century Years Old


Gosh, a quarter of a century!!!! Of a whole century!!! Seriously that sucks lol. I've been MIA because I was moving and we all know that moving is a chore. I spent the weekend catching up with friends in London. May God punish bless whoever said it was warm in London! Nonsense. It was a good weekend, but there was a guy next to me on the plane who gave me his cold so I was kind of grumpy especially on Friday night at the Mama Cass opening. I have to go and eat there the next time I go to London, the food is banging.

I'm currently in my home for the next six months, Sweden. The weather here is definitely nicer than what it was in London which is quite strange. I started work here yesterday and its been okay so far. My appartment is a small studio but perfect for me. The elevator in apartment looks like the one from Basic Instincts if I remember correctly or maybe I made that up. I brought my DVD player and some Nigerian Dvd's along with me. I plan to watch Beyonce (Part 1) today. Luckily I have cable or what they call cable sha cos there are only like 15 channels and 5 are in english. I guess I can't complain. Most people speak English here so thats good for me too.

You know its a good thing I have my blog husband and blog friends! I miss all my friends and family! Can't wait till the next time I see them again but for now I'm enjoying being all alone and sorting out my thoughts with no external disturbances. The novelty is going to wear off soon though. I mean, how long can I talk to myself? Long enough to make friends I guess. Good thing that there are others on the same program even though I am the only Nigerian. Why didn't they pick two!

I met my first African today and he is Nigerian although he has lived here a long time. He works in my Unit and has promised to get his wife to show me where to buy Nigerian food. Wonderful! Things are way too expensive here. I'm trying to save my allowance not squander it!

Well heres to me and turning a quarter of a century old on my own! Thank God I have memories from my party. Thanks to all the bloggers who showed up, my fav guest was nyemonis daugher who didn't want to leave. Send my love to my gorgeous baby 'moni. I have been begging my friends to post the pictures with no luck. Its my fault for not haing a camera. Maybe one day they will put it up, who knows. I mean can that at least be my birthday present?

Hang in there girl! 6 months isn't a long time and the future is so bright...

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

happy belated birthday angel.. glad to know you had fun... dang.. sweden sounds abit far but i know you'll have a great time... by the way beyonce rocks in a stupid way... the movie is so gaudy with the too much gold in the living room you're almost blinded to the half-caste half-caste ghanaians speaking with strange phonetics... i love that movie cos it makes me appreciate nollywood even more.. even though spiritually.. i'm half-ghanaian

chidi said...

oh wow!! whats sweden like? and how are you coping with the language barrier?

Soul said...

Happy Birthday TMinx..

If RnB and HipHop is your thing, there are quite a fw underground hiphop clubs and RnB stuff...
The sweedish also do Soul music very very well..

Anytime you hear really good European RnB music, I'll guarentee that they'll usually have a sweedish production team behind them.
they might not be commercial but they are good.

Uzo said...

Ahhh....you left already...Have fun and we will be looking forward to hearing all you tales....

Naijadude said...

9ja Opeke said...

Glad to know you are settling down well...and you have already met Naijaz...hmmm! dat is a good sign that it is a good country.
Just try to enjoy every moment living there and learn their language if you can...and you also have enough time to make a lot of decisions about yourself without anyone breathing down your neck to make it quick.
Just have fun...And keep us posted on your wonderful adventures there.
God Bless...Fraulien TaureanMix
