Insomnia

Lying in bed

Exhausted and sleepy

I look out of the window

And daydream

I’m Done!

So I’m finally done with my medicals! Everything went okay it was just the whole experience of it that was horrible but at least the results are all good! I just have to go pick them up tomorrow and I am finally done with this whole ordeal!

On a different note I met some very nice people at IOM that were also there to do their tests for their Visa application so yayyy! They were super sweet and helpful because this was their first time too and I guess they knew how scary it was and it was nice to have someone to talk to because we were sitting there waiting for four hours. I hope all their results come back okay too so they can get the application process started!

I’ll write a more detailed post on my experiences there later so look out for that!

Medicals!

So for the next two days I have to get a bunch of tests at IMO which is a medical center in Nairobi because I need to do a bunch of tests before I can apply for my Visa’s. I hope it goes well and I’m done quickly because honestly I don’t want to be there all day! It takes more then three hours usually which sucks but I guess I just have to go there and see what happens.

I’m not going to be blogging for the next two days because I’ll be busy with everything  but I’ll try to check up on the blogs I follow!

Last Night

Last night

I dreamt that you were here

And nothing would ever change

That we were reunited

And this time it would last forever

But then I awoke from my heaven

To find an empty bed

With no one lying next to me

Summer!

This summer is very special for me because my friends have been gone to universities in different countries for almost an year and now they’re finally back for a few weeks/months and we can hang out all the time!!

Yesterday I met with one of my friends who just came down from Canada and we had an amazing time having lunch and chatting! We actually spent like 3 hours in the restaurant which is insane because I hardly ever talk to people that much! We talked about a lot of things (including her insanely adorable dog!) and I found out that Canadians are incredibly punctual which is terrifying for me because I’m one of those people who are always late for everything so I am definitely going to have to work on that!

Anyway we had a great time and I really enjoyed talking to someone who is so thoughtful and deep. I think those are the best conversations to have!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post I know I haven’t been writing a lot about what’s going on with me lately! Also sorry for the Awards overload but I want to finish doing all of them at once!
