Happy Belated Independence Day to all my Nigerians, and Nigerian supporters out there!
Hope y'all had a great Indy celebration. I did! My celebration itinerary was the reverse of Nice Anon's...lol. I left NY for MD @ 9pm Friday, and made it to the 9ja party @ Love (club in Baltimore) by about 1.30am. And then my girls and I went to Ibiza (another club) on Saturday, and then the beach @ Ocean City on Sunday. I had a great weekend! As usual, its always fun with the girls, and then I saw old friends from high-school, and made new friends. I also might have had a tad bit too much fun, but its under control...I hope. *fingers crossed*
My happy feet...:) It was a nice day!!!
So about the cologne buying issue in my last post, the thing is I think sometimes,(some of) my beloved people back in 9ja are a tad bit inconsiderate. I mean dnt get me wrong, its ok to ask someone overseas to help you get an item or two or three as the case may be, but I also believe it depends on a couple of factors. Like how close u r to this person, u r certain that he/she can afford to cover ur requests without adding another notch on their already tight belt, and also asking nicely rather than putting him/her in a tough spot of not being able to say no or yes. So yeah, someone who hasn't called me in a long while, and has no clue of how I dey survive for here, or whether dem don sack me for work o, calls me up and asks that I send a cologne with a scent that lasts long...I won't even lie; I was pissed!
Double pissed when I asked why his girlfriend who recently moved to Yankee and has a job cldn't get it, and he said (paraphrasing), how do I expect her to afford it? Since she just started working and all. Anyway, bottomline is that I think sometimes people just dnt get it. Living overseas doesn't mean that there is tree of wealth in your backyard. Having a job doesn't mean that one's bank account is robust. Pictures on FB dnt tell the full-story; they dnt show the bills that need to be paid by month's end or the other responsibilities that come with living abroad. They dnt know that a meaningful chunk of the already limited pay-check goes to freaking taxes!!! I cld go on, but...oh well.
So, I decided to get the bag in the bordeaux!!! Went into the store and looked @ the purple and the bordeaux, and the purple isn't as nice as it looked online. Already rocking it, and I love it...thanks guys!
Ermm...well that's about it for now, will update soon with a more coherent post soon. I'm just all over the place ryt now...or maybe am just lazy...lol. Love y'all to bits!
Have a great week ahead guys!!!
Talk to you guys soon,
