End of semester grades came in the other day!All I can say is, no progress and no back sliding.My grades remained the same, funding continues for one more year!Woo hoo!
But I am disappointed with myself slightly because most of this semester I coasted.I have this bad habit at times of not exerting myself to my full potential.In looking back I could have clearly gotten 3 As this semester.
But instead I chose to ride on sheer talent and intelligence instead (I am not blowing my horn but you would be surprised at how uselful the tools that you are given by the 8-4-4 come in helping you get ahead in this educational system!).Anyway what's done is done, I have learned my lesson!
Saturday I went with a friend of mine to their home town.I thought I lived in the country, but I was wrong!You know you are in a country town when there is only one stop light and the city hall is more like a city shop.But on the plus is that people seem to be real close and know each other.I mean my friend actually stopped their car in the middle of the road and talked to one of their cousins for 5 minutes.That lets you know how much traffic there is in that town!Plus there is only one stop light in their part of town!
My friends relatives live a few houses away, in fact some actually did drop in when I was there.Life in their area is nice and quiet, affordable,the air is fresh and the crime is really low.To some extent I think I could live in such a place but I have to admit the Nairobian that is in me is really strong and it would only be a matter of time till I began to miss the anonymity that comes with living in a city.The different sights and sounds, malls and skyscrapers. Well the usual solution that meets both criteria for most is living in the suburbs.But life in the suburbs comes with its' own set of problems.
Anyway time for me to enjoy my short holiday before I start my summer classes and job.
