Op this story you're sharing is thrilling some of us. Enjoy America. Btw, you can freelance on Fiverr luckily you mentioned you have proofreading and editing skills! That cannot be truer considering your articulate writeup! Bless up my man...

JetLagged?

I keep waking up by 1-2am (which coincides with when 9-10am in Nigeria)

Right now, Im awake just because of this same reason. I find it hard to go back to sleep when I wake up like this. Thankfully, I came over here with my Ps4 console, I'd just play master league till morning.

============================================================

You think Mtn or etisalat are fast? grin grin

think again!

if you see the download speeds I'm getting over here, you'll cry grin grin
too bad torrenting is illegal here in the USA, if not, by now i for don empty their data base cheesy

Ive been checking out a few websites where I can do some proofreading/editing work so I can earn small change (I tried this sometime ago in Nigeria, but with the whole IP changing thingy, I lost my zeal). With the power of a USA IP address, Im willing to have a go at it again.

Any ideas? smiley

Most of the pictures were taken while the car was in motion that's why some of the pictures were blurred.

Congrats bro. Going through dis your thread and d pix actually made me drool. The Lord that changed your status will change mine too very soon. This country Nigeria has no plan for the youths nor d masses. Na d fastest way to leave dey hunger me. We keep hoping it will get better but it keeps getting worse. Ppl keep saying no place like home but in the real sense to me, home is where joy is and where people can boast of a comfortable life whether abroad or local. Home is where the life of the citizens are more important than anything. Home is where an average citizen can afford 3 square meals per day. Home is where security is well guaranteed. Home is where there is no huge discrepancy between the rich and the poor. Home is where our resources and funds are not being embezzled by our corrupt leaders . Home is where there are job provisions for graduates. HOME is where there is HOPE!! Home is, home is, home is, home is.................. ABROAD

Those houses you see are pako houses. Very beautiful. Isn't it? I live there. So believe me. All houses in the US are made of wood. Even the brick or block houses have wooden interior walls. The inside are not cement plastered. Osi ko daa ni ile pako. Asipa owe ni l"America. Rich people dey live for pako house for America.
