The bus dropped us off at the local airport and for some reason I was thinking ‘Wow! I’m in Abuja’ until I remembered that it was the local airport and I was catching a domestic flight. The local airport was so disorganised. I waited a bit before someone helped me with my luggage and my ticket. He told me that he had helped me get an earlier flight and asked if there was anything I could give him. So far two people had helped me and had asked me for money. I told him I didn’t have any money left, which I didn’t, and thanked him for helping me. 2 minutes later, I realised that he hadn’t gotten me an earlier flight. My flight was early anyway. It just so happened that Lynxxx was at the airport.
I enjoyed my domestic flight much more than my international one. When I got to Abuja, I looked around. Abuja is a nice place but my first destination was the hospital for medical check up. Like a Londonah who had never been to a Nigerian hospital, I kept on running back and forth with the money to pay for the tests. Living in London with the NHS made me forget that I would have to pay. I was told by a staff member that I ate too much indomie because I have a stomach (it is small oh and it is not my fault).
As you may have read before, I am applying to go to law school in Nigeria. For those who don’t, you can read my first blog 😉 . I, unfortunately, like to stress myself out. Before I write any exam, I go through a ritual of worrying that I won’t pass or I don’t know as much as I should or I should have started reading months ahead of time not weeks or days before 🙂 . There are numerous forms I have to fill in and I’m already stressed but hopefully by next week, I’ll have sent everything off.
Keeping my fingers crossed so that I get in because I can’t wait to go to Nigeria. I’ve been looked at like I am a bit crazy. One of the responses has been, “People in Nigeria are looking for ways to go London but you grew up in London and want to go to Nigeria.” 🙂 I love London and thanks to my parents, I have been given an opportunity (in terms of education, health and so on) that others have not been able to access. I just want a change of environment and lately, I’ve been on a Nigeria/Africa craze. These are the examples.
Hi! This is the first blog that I have ever written. I’ve written in diaries before but I’ve never posted anything like this online. Why did I start? I currently live in London and I am applying to go the Nigerian Law School. I was looking online to see if I could find information apart from what is on their website. As informative as it is, there were still things that I wanted to know such as the living situation and etc. While googling, I came across less than five blogs but two stood out. The first is Naija Daydreamer by miss b. She also writes stories which I have also loved doing since I was young. I am trying to get back to it but that’s a story for some other time. The second, my favourite, is Musings of a Caramel Latte Addict by Temiville . She has also been documenting her time at the Nigerian Law School as well as other things. They are both international students who have had to go through Bar I (the first part of law school for people who have not studied law in Nigeria).
After I read these blogs, I thought, “Why not?”. Like they have helped me, I hope to be able to help others that want to go to law school in Nigeria. First things first, I have to get in. I am sending my application off and hopefully in June, I’ll know whether I am moving to Nigeria. In this blog, I’ll be talking about my application process and hopefully ifI get in, I’ll also share things about my time at law school.
I also hope to talk about things that are happening in the world (especially Nigeria) and random things like reality TV shows (my guilty pleasure).
