Life Update: Moving Countries, Starting Med School, e.t.c.

. 11.23.2019 .
Whew, I cannot believe that I'm back here. I was so sure that I would never blog again and that's not because anything happened, I just lost interest. Like sure, I've gone through times when I just couldn't be bothered with blogging but I have never lost complete interest like I did this year. It wasn't even planned, I just woke up one day and decided that I wasn't blogging again.


However, in the last few weeks, the blog kept coming back to me and I realized that I actually missed it and wanted to try again. What finally did it for me was reading some of my old posts. I miss writing posts, brainstorming post ideas, meeting new people through the comments section and reading other blogs. I'm not really sure of how things are going to be, I didn't really think this 'comeback' through. I'm literally typing this the morning after a night out with my makeup still on my face just so you get the idea of how things are right now. But I choose not to dwell on that, let's just get to catching up!

Starting Med School
Ahh yes, the biggest change/update in my life this year, I finally started medical school. It's been such a whirlwind journey but I've enjoyed every step of it. It's been quite interesting to adjust back to school life and having a semi-stable routine after practically doing nothing for almost two years. There have  been a couple of bumps in the road but all in all things are really good. I still get a pinch me moment sometimes, I'm truly where I'm supposed to be. I won't lie, it's also been super stressful. It seems there's always some test lurking around the corner and there's always something to study for. There are times when I just go "oh for fuck's sake" so it's not always rosy, I can admit that. I've also met amazing people and made some really good friends, that's always a plus.  I'm really looking forward to the next six years (I KNOW, SUCH A LONG TIME) and I plan to talk more about it on here so watch this space. That was so corny lol.

Moving Countries
Yes, I moved countries for medical school. Things were not just working in England and as much as I really wanted to stay and continue studying there, I was sure I didn't want to study something else so I had to pack up and go go go. I moved to  Hungary and wow, it's been an experience.  I didn't have a lot of expectations to be honest as I wasn't sure what to expect. So far so good, things have been quite okay. This is my first time living in a place where everything isn't in English and I definitely struggled in the beginning but all is well now. We have to learn Hungarian as part of the course so that helps with communication. Most young people can speak English as well which is a huge plus. Most of the Hungarians I've come in contact with have been very lovely, there've been a few assholes but that's expected in every country right?  My uni has a huge international student population so there's a lot of diversity here which I absolutely adore. There about ten different nationalities in my class alone, how cool is that?  I'll also be speaking more on living in Hungary later.

Going To Nigeria
I finally went to Nigeria after almost four years and wow, it was so much fun. It's a little corny but as we waited to board the plane to Lagos, I looked around and there were Nigerians everywhere and it made my heart swell. I was finally going home. Technically, I didn't even go 'home' because I was in Abuja and not in Lagos which is where I actually live but still. I had such a good time, ate all of my favourite foods, hung out with my friends and just enjoyed all things Nigerian. Can I also mention how it was my first time in four years that I was able to fully relax in a cinema. I was visiting the US with my family the year that a gunman shot people at a cinema showing of The Dark Knight Rises (I think?) and since then, I've never liked going to the cinema. Nigeria's the only place that I feel safe going to the cinema. Of course, it wasn't all rosy in Nigeria either, there were certain things I did not miss. Not having constant power and no water in the taps due to the lack of power, very frustrating. Oh and get this guys, I was there for five weeks and I ate fried plantain almost every day. That's what dreams are made of, truly.

Anywho, these have been the major events in my life this year and I'm so happy to be back on here. It's like catching up with an old friend. xx

  7. I visited Hungary for the first time in my life this past summer! Especially compared to Austria, I found that the people in Hungary (or Budapest at least) were sooo friendly and welcoming, and I found English speakers wherever I went!

    Med school and moving countries, all at once! You're making moves!! <3 <3 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
