I went for the International Student's bash this saturday.It wasnt as good as the last two as most of the other students had left for the weekend; the bashes are usually held on Thursdays when everyone is still on Campus.So the crowd was pretty small.But the music was ok, liqour flowed and I met someone I hadnt seen in a long time...Mr Hangover!I now remember why I havent drank in a long time!It took me the better part of Sunday to recover!Never again!I'll post pics after I get this Monday-itis out of my system.
Other than that I am now suffering from an extreme case of Monday-itis. I didnt watch much of Obama's visit but saw a clip or two and read about it in the on-line papers.I saw the usual renaming of schools thing that people do.I think there are some of those schools that have gone through a slew of name changes.First they had the Kenyatta era name, in steps the Nyayo era and a new name, next comes NARC and a name change may have occurred; after that Obama steps into town and a new name!I am sure The Senator was asked to fund new classes or so for the honor of having a school named after him.At this point I could go off on how Kenyans equate people from abroad with money but I am too lazy to get into that, I remember how when my sister went home for vacation someone had the nerve to ask her to help pay her kids school fees; anyway moving on...
I am sure his nose must have been stung by the smell of fresh paint and barely dried tar on the roads.I have always known that the best way to get things like roads in your area fixed is to have some major dignitary like the President visit. I remember there were some government offices just off Mombasa road where I lived.This road was not in the best condition and would account for half of the time it would take you to go to the CBD.But when a new office was opened and the President was coming to open it, that road was fixed in record time!It's pathetic that it takes visitors to get anything maintained.
This month's cable bill is here, seems my roomie is back to his porn watching behaviour.I think it's about time I introduced him to the internet.This issue of a bill with my name on it having charges for items like "barely legal"," backyard babes" and "hot and spicy" isnt very amusing!
We have some new Kenyan students here and there are these 2 chics who come from my roomies neck of the woods, so at least now he has people he can talk about home to.Problem is that these chics keep on complaining about how boring it is here (which I do agree) but do not make any effort whatsoever to make new friends. They spend all the time they are not in class together and even refused to go for the international students bash.I know it's daunting being in a new country but if you don't go out of your way to meet new people and experience new things you'll always pine for home. I'll tell you how they and the other new Kenyan dude have the idea that if they move to ATL life will be peachy; but I'll comment on that some other time.
Anyway it's almost lunch time and I was too lazy to cook anything to carry.Time to go and deal with that!A tolerable Monday to everyone out there!
