THE HUSTLE IS REAL [BACKGROUND] :



SARATOV


Finally Finally Finally, We arrived at Saratov [where I’m gonna be based for a couple of years] Train Station a couple of minutes after 08:00. When I looked outta the windows, lo and behold, there was Victor waiting for me. *was soooooooo happy seeing him* πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜‡
We hugged, exchanged pleasantries then took a taxi straight to my hostel. I was then given a temporary room to keep my luggages, after which we headed to the International Division for my registration and other important stuff.

After, I was told to go to the hospital for my Medical Exams *super scared 😱* I just hated going to the hospital: seeing someone get hurt, blood, injections etc. These things creeps me out mehn 😰😭.


A LIL THROWBACK TO MY TIME AT KBTH

After Ghana Telecom [now Technology] University College[Telecom Engineering], I did my National Service at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital [The most popular Hospital in Ghana]. I soooooooo wanted to change it but it didn’t materialize so I accepted my fate and decided to live it day by day. Gosh, I was scared throughout my 1year there cos my job required us to go to every part of the hospital: From Surgical Ward to Plastics to Mortuary to the Maternity Ward to the Accidents Ward [our most frequent place]. I MEAN EVERYWHERE.
In the Test Room
Couple of times I escaped [Someone has to be in the TEST ROOM to be controlling and checking the ports so I elect myself or beg my superiors to be there] but most times I’m forced to go by the late Uncle Richard, our Deputy Head of Department[May He Rest In Perfect Peace] 😭 or Mr. Okpoti. So when it happens that way, I enter these Departments/Wards with either my eyes slightly closed, looking down or without my lens [without my lens, seeing from far looks blurry sort of].
It was crazy for me but God saw me through……. YAY 😀
KBTH Test Room

So Victor and I went to the hospital, we were almost done [It was left with my Injection and X-Ray test] when he realized it was almost time for his lectures so he left me in the care of one of the Nurses [She doesn’t understand English at all…..Oh God]. Had my injection in a weird way. The Doctor or Lab Assistant really suffered cos she told[sign language] me to turn away three times but I couldn’t so on the fourth time, she was just rattling the Russian Language whilst I sat looking at her[I didn’t understand too ooooooo] before I realized she had just injected me. EEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII


At the Hospital

The X-Ray test was very simple, took my shirts off and stood behind the X-Ray Machine for a couple of minutes and that was all *wish all tests were like that. NO PAIN, NOTHING AT ALL*

The X-Ray Machine [Chest]


Now from The Hospital to The Medical Centre to submit my results was 'wahala'. Didn’t know which bus number to board so I DECIDED TO WALK. I GOT LOST MEHN. 
I MISSED MY WAY.
When I called Victor, he told me to start all over from the International Division Office [That was the only place I remembered aside my hostel]. Got lost again and again and again and again. My clothes weren't appropriate for the weather so I felt SOOOOOO SOOOOOOOOOO COLD [It was even autumn]. Couldn’t stand it again so Victor told me to go to my hostel and relax then after class King Sowah [another mate from Senior High School] will come and pick me up. Whiles heading to my hostel, the phrase THE HUSTLE IS REAL just popped outta my mouth.

At my temporary room

Hours later, King Sowah called saying he was standing in front of my hostel. Oh God, WHAT A JOYπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜‡πŸ˜Š [I’d not seen him since May 2011,after our WASSCE Exams.  We hugged, spoke saaaaaaa then we left for the Medical Centre. In less than 30mins we were there *I was like, how come I missed this place???????I actually passed by it all the times I got lost. *Jeez*
After, King Sowah sent me to KFC at Π’Ρ€ΠΈΡƒΠΌΡ„ Молл [Triumph Mall] for A TREAT. *YAY, I LOVE KFC πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ*

TAKING MILK FOR THE FIRST TIME

At KFC, King Sowah ordered for Coffee [Because I was feeling very cold], Pepsi, Fries and Chicken. Immediately he brought the coffee, I hurriedly took a sip [Gosh, it was soooooooo hot. It burnt my tongue so I put it down]. Then he said ‘IS THERE ENOUGH MILK IN IT?’ πŸ˜• *I'm dreamming....LOL* I was like, I DON'T TAKE IN MILK. *I felt worried*

My Coffee

In this world there are things my body reacts badly to [ALLERGIES]: MILK and SNAILS *eeeeeeeewwwwwwww,*


Experience with Snails
When I was 7years, my mum cooked and added snails. After eating it,I had rashes all over my body and since then no one [Mum, Dad and Lil Sis] hadn’t eaten it even though it was one of my mum's favorite 'meat'.
I'm the KING OF THE HOUSE 😐 
Experience with Milk
Anytime I take in milk, I GET SICK. I just feel a heaviness at my chest region. I will have to vomit everything before I would feel OK. Also, anytime I smell the aroma of milk, I feel like puking. I’M CRAZY, I KNOW RIGHT *dad has told me countless times*
Fortunately and Unfortunately for me, my brother-in-law [Big Sis’ husband] works at Nestle Ghana Limited so occasionally, He brings lots of Milk, Cerelac and Milo. Because I don’t take in milk I expect my Lil sis to hand over ALL THE CERELAC to me [CERELAC IS BAE especially MAIZE] but she doesn’t. She loves it too so most times she takes much of it and leaves a little for me then goes in for the whole package of Milk and Milo. THAT’S NOT FAIR AT ALL *that’s cheating 😭*

So I was surprised nothing happened to me when I sipped it. Was soooooooo scared to continue drinking when it got a little bit warm but he assured me to take a sip again. I did and still nothing happened to me *YAY πŸ˜†* I drunk all and even wanted more.

So King Sowah was the first person to make me take in milk with nothing happening to me. 
Thanks bro for EVERYTHING [going up and down with me] . GOD BLESS YOU #causer πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

*RUSSIAN MILK IS FRIENDLY but GHANAIAN MILK IS ……………*

After, we met Victor then I said my Goodbyes to them. Immediately I got home, I was soooooo excited that I called my Lil sis to tell her about my milk experience. Less than 3 minutes , my mum called asking whether I’m OK, told her I WAS but she wasn’t convinced cos of my experiences with milk in Ghana. So she said I should go to the hospital the following day *LOL* I DIDN’T GO….hahahahaha hahahahaha


MY FIRST WHITE GIRL IN SARATOV

My class didn’t start early and I was always bored staying indoors so I decided to go to the park to read and think [maybe]. 

During one of my times at the park, I was approached by two white girls [Names withheld for security reasons]. The one who wanted to talk to me didn’t understand English at all so the other girl was her translator [she understood a little English]. IT WAS CRAZY.I then asked for her number, took pictures with them and off they went. WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY that I called my Lil sis and told her about it.  
THE GIRL IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL [i know haters who have seen her pics will say 'i don't have eyes kraaaaaa'] BUT NOT MORE THAN THE ANGOLAN GIRL I SAW AT A BIRTHDAY PARTY I ATTENDED IN OCTOBER[MY FIRST HOUSE PARTY].

For days, I fantasized about her, told Victor and King Sowah about it even. Victor advised me to check her out on VK [a very popular chatting site in Russia] so that I use a TRANSLATOR in chatting with her[I didn't understand the language so NO CALLS]. Signed Up immediately then searched and there she was, my beautiful Girl. I immediately sent her a friend request so whiles waiting,I scanned through her pictures. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Was really enjoying the view until I saw a couple of pics of her SMOKING. I was like ‘OH GOD, WHY ME? ‘ . I was soooooooo disappointed, heartbroken and dejected. Upon all the fantasies I created???????? OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH
I kept in contact with her though for some time till she got pissed at me. She requested we meet at Library No. 25 at 15:00 on a certain Wednesday and I kinda forgot and since then, she hasn’t replied my messages. When I send her a message on VK, she reads them alright but doesn’t reply. OH HMMMMMMMMMM, SO I’VE DECIDED TO LET HER GO. IT’S SADDENS MY HEART  😒BUT WHAT CAN I DO????? absolutely nothing!!!

During my times at the park, I took a couple of pics with some passersby. It was a nice and exhilarating experience but it was interrupted when my class began and also the change in weather [WINTER].
