It's getting colder and colder these days, it snowed today and everywhere was slippery.
I don't have winter boots yet and I was advised to get one because the snow has some salts and they damage ordinary shoes so I need to get a new shoe specifically made for winter. As I no get money, I have started searching online for second hand winter shoes but if I don't find I'll have to manage the shoes I have till the winter discount sales begin next week.

I haven't really been feeling too well; I've had cough and catarrh for the past week.
Mucus are kinda normal here and everyone is always snorting in mucus when outside but these past few weeks mine has been excessive and it's really annoying because you can't just blow your nose on the floor like Nigeria because everywhere is clean and no gutters so I always have to wait till I get to the restroom before I can blow my phlegm. angry

My cough and catarrh got worse and my Vietnamese classmate gave me one very strong essential balm so I put a little inside hot water, covered my head with towel and inhaled the vapor from the hot water and I swear that thing worked like magic cos it cleared my noise instantly. This was what my dad usually did for us when we were kids so I quickly thought about it and put that essential balm to good use grin

I'm increasingly starting to feel like the days are shorter here in Russia. I always start off my day with a list of things to do each day etc. and since I arrived here it has always been difficult to complete each task I have on my to do list because I always run out of time.
Wake up, go to class, eat do assignment before you know it's already 1am and you have to try and get some sleep before preparing for your 9am class.
I'm really not happy because I haven't been able to make out some time to start working on an app idea I've had for a while and I'd hate to wake up one day and see someone else already beat me to it.
There is so much going on right now and 24 hours isn't enough for me and I hate always going to bed knowing that I wasn't able to accomplish all I set out to for the day.


I really miss the days I had lots of free time in my hand, to be honest if you have free time right now better start using that time to do something useful instead of waiting and procrastinating.
Put that free time to use right now and do something productive because a time will come when you're realize you don't have that luxury anymore.


I woke up to a really beautiful message yesterday morning from B, she said she's been thinking about me every min and she wasn't able to sleep cos she kept thinking about us and she really wants to see me soon cos she can't wait till Saturday when I told her I would have time for us to see again.
I missed her a lot too so I told her we'd see in the evening when I come back from class.
She hasn't been to my dormitory before because I stay in a tiny dorm with 2 other roommates and she said she would feel uncomfortable having my roommates around so we decided to see in her place since her parents wouldn't come back from work till much later. She lives with her parents and her house isn't far from my dorm but unfortunately her dad was home early so she texted me and we decided to hangout in the park in front of my dorm.

When she arrived, we had a long warm hug for a few mins and kept telling one another how much we've missed ourselves.
Then we played in the park, I carried her and spun her round and round and we had lots of fun in the park.
We got so cold and decided to go to my room in the dorm cos it was freezing outside and luckily when we got to my room none of my roommates were around so we had some privacy to talk.

I spent most of the time introducing her to Nigerian music, started with mad over you by Runtown. Simi's Joromi etc and she's already in love with Nigerian music.
She said I make her feel how no one has ever made her feel before, her past relationships have been with Russian guys and guys here are always serious and I'm someone who plays a lot especially when I like someone, so she said she likes how impulsive and full of energy I am and she's finally getting to experience the kind of love she thought only happens in movies.
We held each other and slow danced to some cool John Legend and Adele then called it a night.

To be honest I don fall yakata for this girl, I'm so happy we both feel the same way about each other cos if I start saying how she makes me feel no be today e go end I swear. I call her Olanma and yesterday I was teaching her how to say Olanma and it was so so hilarious; D

When she got home last night, she texted me and told me the most beautiful moment she's had recently was when she finished asking me some questions about how I feel about her, and I looked her in the eyes and reassured her I genuinely like her then brought her in for a hug then kissed her forehead.
She said when I kissed her forehead, it was the best feeling ever and she felt so safe and so loved and didn't know if too cry or something because she felt so good in a way she hasn't felt before and it was the most beautiful thing ever and she still thinks about it and she misses how I whisper sweet things in her ears and kiss her neck when we were slow dancing.


She told me she's the only child of her parents and I just found out she told her parents and friends that I'm just a new acquaintance that wants to teach her English.
I'm actually legit feeling sad cos I already know her parents won't approve of our relationship cos they'd want her to marry a Russian man obviously and continue their family line. Whatever to, meeting her has been the best thing that happened to me so far in Moscow and even if it ends today, I'd forever cherish the little time we spent together. But I hope it doesn’t cos I really don’t want this to end.



About to have dinner, study then get some sleep.

See you guys later.


My God, this guy want me to jump to Moscow this year.


As your brother from Nigeria, stick to your girlfriend. She's wonderful. I don de help you like her already.


Mehn, your friend, N, is great too. Extend my regard to everyone that has treated you nicely over there...especially your GF and "N". Your best friend too fit be your wife. She's cool and nice.

Now I know why Mikel married a Russian.

Really nice thread and your story is inspiring, btw how long did it take you to become a web desinger, I assume you were able to learn from html, css, javascript to php before you launch your first website right? How long did it take up to understand all the codes.

Maybe this suggestion might help . There are lots of things to get occupied with. Lots of skills to learn . He talked about photography , computer apps building, web design. The list is quite endless. Try and get yourself occupied by learning a skill you have passion in. Furthermore, you might have to make friends or associate more with people that are in the field you desire to be. That way, they will spur you to doing great things or better still Google 2017/2018 skills to acquire or skill related on Google and you will be amazed . Good luck in your endeavors. Well-done OP.

Software engineering and I’m doing an intensive Russian Language program. You can’t really do anything here if you can’t speak Russian Language so most schools offer intensive language programs first. Even if your course is in English, you still need to learn the language if you want to survive here.

Russian Language conversion is a must in the first year.

About racism, it's actually true. Be especially on the lookout for the skinheads. I'm not joking.
