This week’s diary post came in a little late. If you didn’t know, dear diary post comes up every Monday just after midnight. It’s tuesday already….trust me I have a good excuse and enough gists.
Over to the gist of the moment, I finally moved to Jos( yay!…). Like I mentioned in previous posts that I’m going to be here in Jos for a year. I’m serving my country as a youth coper.
This Last weekend has been a little tedious and stressful but I am grateful to God, I survived. I left Lagos for Abuja on thursday morning by road. It was a long long trip(12 hrs). The only reason I didn’t go by air was I was thinking of how much I was going to still spend in moving in and setting up my apartment so I decided to save money by stressing myself. I will advice that unless you are thinking like me or you are saving money please go by air, there’s a lot more advantage of comfort, time and safety.
That settled, I got to Abuja by 6pm and settled in at my aunts place in Gwarinpa and I had an amazing night. I must say people in Abuja are enjoying NEPA light ooo, my phone battery was nothing less than 100% all through, pardon me NEPA is a luxury I’m not used to.
On Friday afternoon, I left Abuja for Jos, it’s a 4hr trip. The journey was just there, nothing out of the ordinary happened.
Saturday I met up with my friends and one of which is my flatmate . We planned on how to pay for the apartment, our vision and how to make things work.
Sunday I went to church, it was an amazing experience, the service was bomb, I had a lot to learn and note down. After service my friends and I met up and paid for the apartment.
Yesterday, monday, I went home ware shopping. I didn’t know it costs a lot to set up an apartment . Since I’m only here for a year, I’m not going all out for luxury , I’m only getting the basics.
Today I’m painting my room, I have an idea of the colour I want my room to be I hope I find it in paint.
I’ll fill you in on how I fix up my flat with my flat mate and take you through my Jos lifestyle. I hope you come on this journey with me.
Fill me in, what have you been up to?
