The Feel of Free

People, I am finally done with my MSc!! Handed in my papers last Friday and slept the sleep of the dead. 
To fellow Postgrads on Blogsville who just finished too ... ..Strategic Chic, Northern Chica. Congrats.

You'll think now that I am free its all joy right? Nope. Had to start packing up clothes and things acquired over the past one year. Its a tiring job for a hoarder like me (I'm one of those types who find it hard to throw things away). I have 2 big suitcase and 3 traveling bags so far..what!!
Then so many decisions to make. To stay or not to stay. If to stay where? Durham isn't exactly job friendly but moving to London when you don't have where to stay involves forking out a lot for rent. Sigh. I need a Sheik in my life.

Advice anyone? Offers? What's the best UK city?

Finally I want to say thanks to everyone for the rousing argument we had on my last post. I appreciate you all. The personal stories, the personal confessions. I hope we all learnt something. I did.
So, here are some pictures that left me lost for words......

My friend put this picture up on facebook. Someone should give our Prez, posture lessons already. Nothing says subservience like your hands behind your back. Haba! Even if its Gringory Akabogu and Madam Ovularia?!! I can almost hear the 'yes Ma'm.

I know you'll have seen the computer generated baby picture, well, this is Beyonce jnr all grown up...wicked I say!
This dog's name is Yoda. She is the ugliest dog in the world. Yep she won the award hands competition. If I were Darwin I would haunt her owner till she rids herself of this creature. I hope they didnt let her procreate.
Now this just broke my heart :(. Ernie and Bert are not real people?!!!


  1. I live in London, you can get a shared house and hunt jobs here :) if you need help you can refer to my blog I have mentioned couple of handy links in there under tag London.

    I have lived in Cardiff too, though salaries are comparatively lower than London but the city is beautiful and is growing...and it's cheaper too!

    And many many congrtulations for the graduation <3 xx

  2. congrats on finally finishing. I can feel the relief. Can't say much about the UK but all the best in making a decision

  3. Congrats on rounding off you degree and all the best for the results and the future. London is hectic but is usually the best city for opportunities. But it may be easier to land a job somewhere else, the salary may be lower, but so will cost of living.

  4. Yaaayyyy congrats! It must have been hectic, but it is over. When are we popping champagne?

  5. buahaha,leave my prez alone oh,lol.

  6. Baby, I am so proud of you! I'm really delighted you got your MSc. It was a lot of work, but I'm sure it will be worth it. London is quite expensive I've heard. But that's probably your best bet at employment. I know you've got a lot of decisions to make. And I am sure you'll make wise ones.

  7. Congratulations on the completion of your MSc. Very well done.

  8. Congrats!!! All the best with work and moving :)

  9. Congratulations on completing ur Masters degree.

    London has more jobs, and the pay is higher there too...u don't have to live in London though - u can live in a smaller town near London with good transport links to London, eg. Kent, Newbury, Bromley...the rent in these areas is certainly better (lower) than in London.

    All the best ginger.

  10. Congratulations on getting your masters.
    lol @ Gringory and Ovularia.

  11. Congrats on getting your MSc. We must wash am o. Oya wetin you go cook? I want the most delicious soup with akpu. Nor be that kin akpu pesin go throw come back hit pesin, o. Lol.

  12. Awww congratulations hun!! Call us for graduation :) Have you considered Birmingham? I don't think it's as expensive as Londres but it's still "alive".

  13. Congrats Ginger!!! Yay!!!!!
    I hope the job situation in the UK turns around soon. We still dey suffer here for yankee.

  14. I'm so late but I wanted to congratulate you on finishing your masters! Kudos to you, Ginger! :)
