Memoirs of a Nigerian Youth Corps Member-Episode 4

Back to my NYSC experience...

The last blog post on my NYSC experience (Memoirs of a Nigerian Youth Corps Member-Episode 3) was about the first room I rented during my youth service. I detested that room. I recorded while I still occupied the room in 2010 showing you a detailed tour of the room. Watch below...
As luck would have it, my face-me-I-face-you neighbor was moving out of the opposite room which was the same size but far better. It had just the right furniture and fixtures I needed such as a reading table, a chair, a ceiling fan, and a large wall hanger which I got for a good price. Also, unlike the other room, a net without big holes and a real door which wasn't ugly.
I did not waste any time to bargain for the room. It seemed impossible at first but I fought tooth and nail for it. The condition was to get someone to occupy my first room before I could move into the new and better room. With the help of my agent, a new occupant came in on a Saturday morning and I moved out of the room with the speed of light, if not faster, into my new room. It was a great way to start my weekend and I had a reason to put in some extra dance steps during thanksgiving on Sunday.
