Long-time no blog. I have been procrastinating when it comes to writing which is not a good thing, but ooh well here I am now. Here is a mini update:
Moving out: Adulting only got real when I moved out of home. I was so stressed during the whole process of house hunting, moving my stuff and having a few repairs done to the place. At some point, I had to give myself a pep talk to calm down and work on certain tasks one by one. I went through the whole phase of wanting everything in house of leather to being content to start small. Right now I am comfortable with what I have. I will furnish the place with time. There are certain luxuries that you get at home and then I think of getting it for myself I just run back home.
Adventures: I recently went for hiking at Ol donyo Sabuk (Mt. Kilimambogo). That story requires a post on its own. It was my first time camping (the real one) like sleeping in a tent. The whole experience was topped off with it raining for two days. I managed to make new friends, take a break from everything and also exercise a little. However, I was disappointed when I reached the top, I expected a breathtaking panoramic view only to find boosters. If you are planning to go there do not be too eager about what you will see at the top.
New experiences: I have been driving for a while and I think I am those people other drivers say “ona huyu hasongi” (haha). I know I am not badly off I just need to have more faith in myself. The funny thing is when I am alone I do not have that worry as much as when I am with people. I know very soon it will be a breeze for me and I won’t think about it a lot. Another thing I discovered with driving especially when you are learning is there will be too many people giving you their advice so you have to know which ones to take and in some instances form your own decisions.
So far so good, I am just trying to find a balance so that I am not just thinking about bills but also treat myself every once in a while and give myself a break. I tend to feel pressure to ensure everything is going on well but I am trying to take it a day at a time.
As I try to navigate through all this I am back to regular posting. New posts every Sunday.
