SINGLE LADIES


No, I am not about to bore you with stories about my love life. Lol... I am just addicted to this new TV show, Single Ladies, which I started watching about two weeks ago...and I think you should check it out; yes, even the guys (I have caught a couple of guys who swear they do not watch such shows, watching it- It is that good!) At least you will have something to do this summer if you have no plans at all....If you do watch one episode and you do not like it, then I am sorry for wasting your time...

I am back at work at the Enquiry Unit in the university and I am working for the whole week this week, instead of the usual one day a week during term time. This means that I am going to be quite busy all week and may not have time to hang out with my friends as much....Looking at the bright side though, I will be making some money and may be able to afford a trip out of this country as I said I wanted to in the previous post.

In more exciting news, a friend of mine from back in high school is about to get married! This has created quite a stir among my group of friends, as it has reminded us that indeed, we are growing up and will one day be in her shoes...hmm...I do not know if that is scary or exciting...
Anyway, after months and months of lessons and procrastination, I am finally planning to go and take my driving theory test soon (I have finally gathered the courage and confidence....I think) and if I pass, fingers crossed, I will go on to take the practical test. Wish me luck people! I will let you know how that goes.


Well, that is it for now; and so until the next post, it is bye for now!

STAYING FIT


Hi guys!! Here is an update of what I have been doing with my life since the last blog post. I have taken my ‘fitness program’ to the next level. In the past couple of weeks, I have been playing a lot of basketball and doing a lot of swimming, which is great, because those two are my favourite sports. Also, I have had a lot of friends around me who enjoy almost the same things as me so this has made it a lot easier for me.

The past weeks have been quite fun, actually; I went off to Birmingham and Essex for a while to visit family and friends; and as summer is here, a lot of my friends from back in Ghana have come over to spend the holidays here. It is always a full house where I stay, which is great-not a single day of boredom. However this can be annoying sometimes when I have to wake up early the next day for something important and there is so much noise in the house...I guess I cannot eat my cake and have it, can I?

I am also slowly improving on my cooking (which was not really excellent) and I have a dream of visiting another nearby country for a weekend....I just hope I am able to discipline myself enough to save for it...until then we will see...

I hope everyone else is having an awesome summer despite the bi polar nature of the British weather and hopefully all your plans fall through!!

See you in the next post! xo :)
