Back in The Mother City

On May first, I took a flight to Cape Town to come and look after my baby sis. It felt so good being back here even though I wish it was under better circumstances. I loved how familiar everything felt. Honestly though, despite how expensive it is, this is a city I could see myself […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #26

September 30th, 2021 So I flew home today so this is my last Cape Town Journal entry. Had such a great time in The Mother City, so sad I had to leave and I hope to go back there again soon. I wrote this post from the plane (don’t worry, my phone was on flight […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #25

September 29th, 2021 OMG I loathe packing. I wish someone else could do it for me and also,why do I have so much stuff??? Still haven’t gotten rid of my bed and it’s really stressing me the fuck out because A. I need the money and B. I’m leaving TOMORROW. I’ve been trying to sell […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #24

September 28th, 2021 It’s almost time to go… I have yet to sell my bed and I’m getting desperate. I’ve never sold a bed before but I honestly thought it would be gone by now… Just 2 days left here and I must say, I’ve had a good time. I was with my friend of […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #23

September 25th, 2021 So my time in the mother city is slowly coming to an end. Still so much I haven’t done yet… My flight’s been booked and I’m leaving on the 30th. Just had a bomb ass sushi burrito for breakfast (yet another first) and it was sooo delicious 😋. The weather is beautiful […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #23

September 18th, 2021 I had such a good day today, busy but good! The weather was beautiful, beach weather in fact but no, I didn’t go to the beach. Did some spring cleaning this morning and we had 2 viewings of the apartment. Even took pictures to sell my bed. It’s really sinking in now… […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #22

September 17th, 2021 I don’t want to have to go back home, not to that environment. I feel it’s very toxic and from what I hear over the phone, not much has changed… Job hunting is tough! I’m halfway into the third month and still, nothing yet. It’s stressing me out but I’m trying to […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #21

September 9th, 2021 It’s kinda weird and fills me with pride at the same time when I watch my sister work. Sometimes it reminds me of how unsuccessful and lost I am when it comes to my career. My dad is now also suggesting I look into doing nails for a living and it’s not […]

Cape Town Journal: Entry #20

September 8th, 2021 Just got off the phone with my dad about my situation. We’ve decided, since I haven’t secured a job here, maybe it would be best for me to go back home. Cape Town is bloody expensive for someone who is NOT a working professional. I am not feeling any “typa way” about […]
