Relocating out of state is one thing, staying indoors because lockdown and curfew was put in place few days after I arrived at the new environment is another thing. How did I survive the lockdown and curfew? Oh well, Netflix and Instagram live came to my rescue, and they both did well. Did I mention I was also taking online classes in two different colleges in the middle of the whole chaos? Oh yeah, I am used to wearing so many hats (and heels too) and I try my best to wear them well with baba God's help. HE loves me too much to allow me stress myself without HIS help.
The new city:
I haven't seen or visit a lot of of places in Maryland, D.C area but the few places I have been to has proven to be interesting. The county mall is few minutes drive from my house (a plus and minus at the same time, you know what I mean) and it was recently opened. Yayy! Start spending your extra savings Funke!!! *Rolls eyes*
Has a lot of stores but not as many as the malls in Dallas but hey! I refused to be tempted to move back to the Cowboys city. I have to make my relationship with the Chocolate city work, especially after spending all my savings to move here. *Local woman cannot can* (In Twitterian's keyboard voice)
Cost of living:
My oh my!!!!!! This city is expensive. Whew! Everything here is high; from electricity bill, rent, internet bill and what have you. I was recently at the Driver's licence office to change my DL and the fee was triple what I used to pay in Dallas. Let's not forget how much I was charged for an oil change when I took my car for services at my Dealer's place. It is not a child's play. The rent nko? It is expensive and the apartment community customer service is a story for another day.*Okokobioko* (This one pass Sekem matter o...lol)
Let me pause here and gather my keyboard-strength for my next journal.
Until I drop by again in the blogger's journal corner, keep staying safe and please, practice social distancing.
