Is it just me or does time seems to move faster when you are having a good time? It is three weeks post campus and September is coming to an end. For the first few weeks, I didn’t feel any difference as I was still waking up at 4 am and staring at the ceiling. I really wanted to take a break and relax, but knowing myself, I get bored really quickly. I like being busy, so I usually have to resort to activities to distract myself.
There have been a few changes, key among them is moving back home. This is a major one because I had been living alone in a different town for five years. I really miss my four walls and all the effort I had put in arranging and decorating my room. I think you tend to talk to yourself more when you live alone (haha). The upside to missing my solitude is that I no longer have to deal with some expenses such as buying food and paying for electricity. Kwanza electricity! The rate at which KPLC is going, soon half of your salary might just be spent on electricity bills as if we do not have enough problems in this country.
I have had time to catch up with friends and family. It is one thing to see and comment on each other’s posts on social media, but to actually just sit and catch up gives a very different perspective. It is also funny how despite not seeing some people for a while it is more of let us pick up where we left off. There are some social engagement groups that I wish I could have joined earlier, but not being around 80% of the time just made it impossible and even now I still can’t join because I am afraid I might have to move again. It is hard to reconnect when it comes to certain things.
Apart from reading novels, practising AutoCAD, visiting friends and working on the website, I eat and sleep. All my favourite series are back and although I don’t want to be stuck binge-watching a series all day sometimes it’s hard not to give in. I wanted to start working out again but I only did it for a day and was like girl enjoy your holiday for now.
Three weeks into my break and something at the back of my mind keeps saying that I need to get busy now. That is how September has been for me.
