Building

The stress of building a house is very real. Obviously I have not yet arrived at that age, but I went to look at tiles with my dad today and it took the ENTIRE day. Like seriously. Why? Any way in the end there are so many things you have to consider from design, to placement, to colour, to level of traffic. It’s so annoying. Like my entire day was used up and I still did not get the tiles I wanted for my bathroom.
Anyway yesterday I came across the deepest bathtub I have ever seen.  And trust me when I say I am a FAN of long, soaking baths. I could fall asleep in the bathtub. But it was like soooooo expensive so I couldn’t have it 😤. And now I have just a week before I go back to school so I have to wait till December to see and hopefully be pleasantly surprised at whatever I am saddled with in my tiny slice of privacy within the family home.  Fingers crossed🙏🙈

What To Do

I have been using the HTC One X for a while now (Since the end of February) and I can honestly say that the phone is absolutely horrible. Basically a week after I got it, the stupid phone fell flat on its face, and the screen cracked. Immediately the phone began to seize.
Now, this new phenomenon I could live with, but when I played music, it would just randomly stop and start again, it was very annoying. Then the phone started sending me notifications that storage was full, so I deleted a lot of my apps to free up space but the stupid phone continued in its usual pattern. A long while later the phone fell again and miraculously the seizing stopped and I could once again enjoy my music obstacle free. I made the error of relaxing, because after that I couldn’t update the apps that were left. But I pushed on hoping to be rid of the device by this month before I started a new school year.
Getting home after an annoying school extension, with my holiday reduced from 3months to 3wks, I discovered that there was usable WiFi in my house (happy face). Surprisingly the phone which had refused to update up till now automatically updated all my apps. With the entrance of the improved apps came the return of the stupid seizing. This was okay with me as I still had the aforementioned hope. But upon discussion with the rentz I am no longer sure of that hope.
See me here with my eyes looking at the Galaxy S6, always praying under my breath, and they tell me I might have to make do with what I have, so I begin to look low budget and the Motorola X Style makes a good impression, then I see that they don’t ship to Nigeria, which is another bullet to the heart.
So now the search is on with renewed fervour, to find a budget phone that has a good sized screen, doesn’t feel chunky or cheap, with at least full HD display, no less than 2 GB of RAM, sensible internal storage or the option of expandable storage, good browsing experience and battery life, and most importantly an amazing camera to satisfy my selfie obsession.
Suggestions are very welcome.

Feelings Of Emptiness

Today my house finally emptied of all the non resident occupants who had been dwelling here for a while. And suprisingly I feel a bit sad, because while they were here I couldn’t wait for them to leave. But now the house is empty and I wish they all came back. And I slightly regret arguing with certain individuals while they were here. So note: treasure what you have while it’s available.
Goodbye.

What do I blog about today?

I watched the trailer for the Danish Girl with Eddy Redmayne and I was totally blown away. The guy has boatloads of talent and then I  put on the tv and “I am Cait” is on E! and her struggle is so visible. It speaks to me as the general struggle for all of us to be accepted for our individuality, but instead we gang up against people who are seen as different, and I hope than soon we can move past this to become a more open and accepting people.
