My curtain na tablecloth...

...those tie and dye ones...you know, the one that every Nigerian living abroad has. This one is green, with fishes swimming inside in a circle, or rather, square(cos the table cloth is square). It looks ridiculous but who cares? and thats all I have managed to put up, plus some table lamps that I have plugged into every socket that I found...

perhaps this is the "union of joy and emptiness?"(I read that in one of those Buddhism books, one of those phrases that haunts my brain)its a fucking empty room...

but I am happy.

Yes. You are happy. And that is what matters.
I believe i know how you feel, 'cos I once suffered through a period of 'homelessness'. When I got a place, it was empty for a long time, but it was my very own place.

As long as you are happy, nothing else matters. I can't even begin to tell you what my first apartment looked like. Okay, I can... A bed, a tv in the room, a tv in the living room and a phone on the floor...

At least you have curtains.
