Hey guys, I know it’s been a while and I am currently writing this post at 6:51 am trying to get everything ready for my flight off to Perth, Australia later today. I know I promised a whole lot of videos kind of explaining my move and why I decided to go to Perth because going there was never really planned it kind of just happened. I’ve never been to Australia so I must say I’m incredibly excited and kind of nervous. Excited because it’s a completely new place and with my background in traveling my whole life it’s going to be another adventure filled with crazy memories, but then nervous because did you know Australia has every fucking species of spiders and I have a serious phobia of all insects? AHHHH! I probably might pass out or die of a heart attack if I came up real close to one. Anyway kind off going back to the topic, I’ve been here in Nairobi since I graduated in May ( WOOO #CLASS2015) and I have discovered so much. As much as I am ready to leave and head out to start my new life with certain people left behind, I can honestly say that I am some what appreciative of having my time here since I’m not here often at all because between the 5 months of me staying new friendships have bloomed and new opportunities have come up. I must apologize in this moment because this post is going to be quite emotional which is extremely different for me and although it may be difficult for me to fully address certain issues within this post I ask that you take it as it is and try understand things from my perspective ,then maybe at a later date if I will I will definitely come back to this post try explain as much as possible. So in continuing what I was saying, I am glad in a sense I got to have sometime here and I knew I most definitely needed it. Living in Zimbabwe to be quite frank was difficult, a lot had happened the five years I had lived there and there were so many people who didn’t understand the complications of certain situations and I often felt incredibly alone until my amazing friends Jordyn, Marlo, Sophie, Ranya ,Bronwyn and Chipo all came into my life and I honestly cannot thank you girls enough for being the fantastic, amazing friends that you are. I also have to thank one of my closest friends Denis because he’s been through it all. I’d imagine you’d think I’m quite put together and although not everything is perfect some sort of facade is put up to make it seem that way. But even though I put this facade up Denis always knew when something was wrong even when I thought I was doing a real good job at hiding it. Him and I have been through so much and (hopefully he’s reading this ) I must say that you have left such an incredible impact on me. When I didn’t think I could make it, you stayed right by my side and made sure I did. Forgot to mention this will be a pretty long post too. Now on to Hunter, another one of my best friends. Probably one of the craziest, funniest, intelligent people I know. I spoke to Hunter last night and although I was crying on the phone feeling a little confused and miserable within five minutes he managed to me laugh so hard I swear I could have pee’d myself ( TMI I know) . Hunter is probably one of the most understanding people and always tells it like it is which seems to be a complete rarity today. You’re amazing Hunter ( although no one will get this – poopsicles!) Now onto the person I call a sister, the one person who stuck by my side since I was ten and has still managed to put up with me. My polish sister from another mister Cornelia. Having known me from my younger years until now, there is so much we’ve been through, good and bad. I honestly appreciate both because the good brought amazing memories ( J Cole Concert & Guanabana Pineapple) and we always seemed to get through the bad and come even closer! You’re the corn to my petrol and I am so glad to not only call you my best friend but my sister, you’re just as crazy as I am although you won’t admit it but you are a lot smarter than I am ahah! I kind of don’t wanna start crying writing this out but I guess I’ll tell you the rest over the phone. Last but not least the two new friendships that had formed since my return to this country and I honestly don’t know whether things would’ve gone the way they did this summer if I didn’t have these girls right by my side. Bee ( Beata) and Wendy , you girls always seem to make me laugh and I’ve never had a dull moment with you (Bee’s designer fiasco). You’ve shown what incredible friends you are by literally showing up to my house for fries or a milkshake haha or even just standing up for me when I really needed it. I’m so glad my friendship with you two blossom and I cannot wait to see all the fun adventures we have ahead of us. Having said all that it is most definitely my time to go and I must apologize once again that I haven’t been posting very often but that is all about to change. As I embark on this new journey and leave bad relationships and negativity behind, I really look forward to the fresh start, the shopping malls ofc and hopefully an abundance of positivity. Hopefully writing this post, I’ll remember to always stay the optimistic person I try so incredibly hard to be. A lot has happened and just like anyone else I can get incredibly blind sided and lose a little faith in myself over something petty and small. I hope that moving to Australia will help make me a stronger person because I’m out officially on my own in a new foreign country, and I hope it helps mold me to be the person I aspire to be. Of course I will take you guys with me every step of the way and I won’t forget to post up all the fantastic pictures of this amazing place I’m going to. I forgot to thank my readers as well because we just hit 13k visits and I only started this blog in July! YOU are all fantastic and I would have never thought I would be getting this much love from all of you! Thought I’d include that my top readers are from : Russia, Kenya and USA ( Specifically California) ! You guys are all amazing and incredibly soon I will be having a huge giveaway once we hit 14k and to mark the celebration of something new coming out, unfortunately can’t give you any details at the moment but be patient and I will soon! Before I continue to blab and make this post incredibly long, I have to thank the fantastic people in my life who have made it to this point with me, I have to leave all the dirt in the past and I kind of just have to look forward to the future.
Wish me luck,
