I've officially been back in Atlanta for over a month now. Thursday was the one month mark. It's been an interesting month, I have to say. There have been good and not-so-good aspects of being back here. I'll share more below.
BTW, this post was originally supposed to go up last week Thursday but somehow it didn't get written. I actually had it scheduled in my blog planner. This is why I said in my review post that you actually have to use the planner.
It's not enough to make plans... you have to follow through and put them into action! Otherwise, they are just fanciful wishes or ideas. [Click to Tweet!]So my progress report is as follows...
I'm absolutely loving being closer to my siblings again. We're a very close knit family and we chat with each other every single day. So having my siblings (btw Happy National Siblings Day!) closer has been great. Even greater, is watching my nephew and niece growing in front of me. I don't have to wait for my sister to send photos and videos, or to Skype with them. Now they're right in front of me and they bring me so much joy! I love them with all my heart.
I'm still jobless and unfortunately, was unable to change much money in Nigeria before coming. I actually had an episode in a bank 2 days before I left Lagos. I literally was crying and stormed out because I was so frustrated. It's so annoying that you have this money that you want to change, but you can't. Basically you have no access to your own money! Even if you try, the exchange rate is criminal! Anyways, I'm basically broke and relying on Cakes' efforts. Thank God for him and his business o. If not, I would have set up a Gofundme page by now and begged for donations :p
Well, those of you who follow me on Snapchat have seen my weight gain woes. Yup, all the weight I worked so hard to lose last year has come back, PLUS MORE! I'm officially the heaviest I've ever been. It's almost taking a toll on my self-esteem because I don't want to do anymore style posts on the blog. I have one that I wanted to put up but I keep looking at my chunky thighs. On the plus side, my boobs sha. Looking sweet!
So that's all I can share for now. Cakes is here with me for a little while before heading back to Lagos to check on the bakery there. ATL people, remember to call 404 993 3770 to order the most creative cakes you can imagine. Speaking of creative cakes, check out these ones from Lagos.
Love you guys!
P.S. The vlog on this topic should be out this week. If you want any other questions answered, kindly let me know in the comments.
