Excuse my absence oo…it was pure laziness on my part….no further excuses.

After a recent vacation to Florida (America’s Penis), my best friend and I have decided that we’re moving down there after graduation. After almost 12 years of living on the East coast I think it’s time that I experience a change in scenery. Surprisingly, when I told my parents they didn’t really say anything or try to change my mind. My dad seemed like he supported it but my mom, although she said, “God will lead you the right way,” seemed to be praying for the right way to be for me to stay at home. There were no talks of prostitution or the dangers of living in a different state as a single young female, or moving to Miami and becoming involved with drug rings and having relationships with Cuban drug lords, etc…

So, why Florida?


1. It’s gorgeous
2. It reminds me of Naija, especially the architecture and vegetation
3. It’s far away from here
4. Despite the heat and humidity , I still felt comfortable there
5. Things are cheaper and there’s no state tax
6. I would gain real world experience
7. I want to live like The Golden Girls


1. Very hot & humid
2. Lack of Nigerians
3. Although there’s no state tax, there are a million toll booths to make up for it’s absence
4. You have to drive everywhere
5. It would mean having to be away from my family. I would definitely be living in the real world.
6. I have to look for a new job and a place to stay
7. Hurricanes, etc.

So here’s my plan of action:

A. Live with one of my Floridian friends for about a month (you know who you are), just to see if I like it
B. Find a job before I move to Florida so that I won’t be broke and jobless
C. Decide which part of Florida I want to reside
D. Make plans for finding apartments etc. while staying with friend.
E. etc…

Here’s hoping that it all works out at the end of the day. Wish me good luck.

***I promise my next post will be more interesting***
