What a day...

For some reason, I did not feel like having any breakfast yesterday morning. I figured my body needed time to adjust to the regular breakfasts I'd been having for the past two weeks. Usually at MIT, I'd get out of bed, take a shower and then head of to lectures. Breakfast and Lunch are usually not that important as long as I have a cup of coffee. I planned on running a few errands during the hour and half break we usually have between Lectures and Labs time. Unfortunately, the time coincided with lunch time :-/ I figured I'd head out quickly and maybe grab some juice on my way back but things did not go as planned!

First, it was really hot and I had decided to wear a long sleeved shirt yesterday- wrong choice! Then, my ATM card would not work at any other bank's ATM but my bank so I spent some time looking for one. By the end of the break, I was just returning back to UI so I had to head straight to the CS lab. 


The lab session ended at 4:00pm. By then, I was hungry and craving Mr Bigg's Meatpies and jollof Rice. It looked like it was going to rain soon but I was determined to get what I wanted. Yemi decided to come with me so we took a cab to UI's gate. As soon as we arrived, it started raining heavily. We had to stand underneath one of those umbrellas people use to sell phone recharge cards with about four other people. I had changed into something light so it wasn't long before half of me was soaking wet. After about 20 minutes, the rain stopped and we went to eat. I got my meat pie and jollof rice while Yemi got his moi-moi and meat-pie. 

By the end of yesterday, I was so tired, I went to bed before mid-night. What a day!
