It’s past 10 here but my body is telling me it’s past 3 in the morning and I should be asleep. I’ve had these weird headaches that just come at odd hours. First 2 days, I gave in to my body. Right now I’m forcing my body/brain to adjust to the time difference and it’s quite a task. I don’t want to be getting up at 4am again and sleeping at 5pm and waking up and sleeping between those times.
I got teary eyed when we landed at JFK. I was like so I really did this *smiles*. My friend from uni was there to meet me and seeing that I hadn’t seen her in 5/6 years there was some squealing and loads of laughing. Lovely reunion.
Right now, I’m looking for a flat. Initially I was going to share like I did in Nottingham but now I’m leaning towards a studio apartment. Hm, looking for a house in this city is not beans!
I’ve been on Craigslist since I got here and all I can say is 419!!!!!!!!! Craigslist.org is the go-to website for a number of things including house hunts. Maybe I just haven’t been lucky cos it’s been weird and dodgy people coming my way. One said I should send some money this week but the house wouldn’t be available for viewing till next week. Another said I should send my picture O_O Yet another said we should Skype first and another sent one long fraudulent email.
Luckily for me, I’m street compliant, hehehe. My next option will be to get a broker (equal to agent in Nigeria) BUT these brokers are expensive! Their commission or charge or whatever it is is one month’s rent. So if I get a place for $1,200 per month through a broker, I’m going to be paying the Broker $1,200 as his/her fee minus security deposit and any other hidden charges that may be pulled out. IT IS WELL!
I find myself comparing New York to London. I’m still on it in my head.
Classes start in about 2 weeks and I’m looking forward to it. Looking forward to learning all that the course is about and of course meeting new people from different parts of the world.
so I want to ask- I went to this really nice church today. It felt so good being there. Times Square Church. Worship and sermon were amazing- Now, I don’t know if I should just stick to it and start attending or if I should worship at some other ones before I make up my mind. What do you think?
Still have a headache. Sigh… Can someone please tell my body to behave and acclimatize already?
*kindly overlook any typo*
