MY Addiction


Wednesday, 5 November 2008

My keeping thus far!

so... one of my last real post talked about me getting a transfer and moving cities. I didnt get the 2bedmroom apartment i talked about and ended up bunking in my friend's place for some 3 gruesome weeks. i say gruesome because i felt so uncomfortable, my things were left unpacked in boxes and bags it wasnt it at all. i felt so choked and miserable.

...then we decided to save some money and get a place together, i agreed; good idea why not? we go view a newly built apartment still on the edge of completion and fell immediately in love with it. the show room was off the chain, it had 2 master bedrooms with 1 shower room/toilet and a bathroom/toilet. we decided as soon as it was completed 1 week from then, we were moving in instantly. agreed.
when we got to her house, she told to me that she would be taking the shower room/toilet because she hates bath tubs. fair enough for me since am a bathroom freak never minding she wasnt discussing it, she simply stated it. 2mins later i got a catelogue and started looking through bathroom decor only for her to tell me she's getting jealous and she doesnt think she wants the shower room no more. i laughed that off, how ridiculous???

this young lady decided to wake me up from sleep to tell me she needs to talk to me about the apartment we will soon be sharing. guys i was mighty ticked off cos i was so tired. she goes; 'ive been thinking about the idea of me taking the shower room and i dont think i like it very much. i know am not into taking baths but i quite enjoy the decor that comes with a bathroom'. ok not precisely but that was what she said. i asked her what she wanted she said it will be nice to share both. i tell her no problem can i go back to bed. she's like even if we dont share we can use either one and leave the second for guests. i said not problem was that all she said yes and i went back to bed.

we saw 2 showrooms, the 2bed and the 1bed. quite frankly, the 1bed was so nice and i had been dreaming of it ever since the day but i didnt want to be the horrible person to say; right! i want to live alone after agreeing to share a place.

and so... that night i said a prayer to God, that he should teach me what to do and show me a way out of getting a place with her.

at work the next day on my lunch break i get a text. saying she thinks moving together is not a good idea and she is not ready for the expenses and stress that comes with it.

... that was my ticket to freedom. i immediately sent her a text saying i understand and it is completely ok, ill just get the 1bed then. that was one of the happiest days of my life. i called the agent told him about my plans and immediate arranged to move in at the end of the week, the opening of the apartments.

when i got to my friend's house that day, i didnt want any frictions so i carried on as normal, she was uncomfortable i could tell but i kind of eased her tension by talking to her about what she wanted to do next. i didnt tell her i had arranged to move by the end of the week though. the day after she asked what i was doing for the weekend and i answered nothing. she then went ahead to say cos her boyfriend is coming so i'll have to arrange something. which means i should find my square root in the weekend. in an unfairliar city u guys. i thought that was most horrible.

you needed to see the reaction on her face when i told her i was moving out on the friday; absolutely PRICELESS!!!

I now live in my beautiful apartment. happy with life most joyous that the Lord had guided my footsteps and i tell u, life could not be sweeter.

problem now is because its newly built. the postcode is not yet recognised and i have no internet connection, no cable and no landfone. apart form that life is purrfect!!!

the apartement is fully furnished so there was not much i could do with decor except give it some touches here and there to make it mine own private space. plus it is so spacious its just beautiful. i go to work and all i can dream of is going back to my house just to be in it.
this is the summary of my life in the last 2months.

... so, tell me what u've been up to.

Wow......I was smiling throughout the entire story because I just liked how God totally HOOKED YOU UP!!!! Muhahaaaa!!! As in, when God is working with you, it will be soooo OBVIOUS, that even your enemies (not saying she's your enemy) will be a peace with you...

Congratulations...well, I guess it's been 2 months in which God was working on promoting you to a better place in your life...the hibernation was a good thing!

pink-satin said...

wow!thank goodness you didnt room with her!do u know what she will have put you through!while she was kind to let you stay with her for 3 weeks i must say she is selfish for just stating that she wanted the other bathroom and not even discussing it,then waking you from sleep to tell you she wanted the other one!!
ah!you guys will have so fought if you lived together!!but you sef you for tell am say you were planning to move now(she housed you for three weeks) and it was just polite you told her ahead of time!!seriously if you werent moving out where did she expect you to stay when her bf came!does he live in d same city or a diff state?maybe they had planned his visit for a while
are u guys real close friends cos it doesnt sound like that at all
i am just happy you aint rooming with her

Lighty 'neferet' Kopearl said...

^ pink satin... my dear i wuldnt av allowed any argument or fights if we lived together. only i will be utterly miserable.

i wuldnt say i informed her late of my mmoving out. cos the plan was as soon as i got a place i move out but then the plan changed we were to move in together. and it changed again she wasnt coming with me. so i automatically assumed my first plan as back on track she knew this. and that she had no problem wit.

by the way her boyfriend lives in another city and there was no previous plans of his visit until a day before she told me.

am happy God settled the situation for us. how r u???
