Day Two in the New Crib: We’ll Call Him “I Need Money” (May 4th)

So I’ve figured out that I live in a “How High” type establish. These dudes are immensely happy and not really filled with too much drama—or so it seems. Except for the fact that I have as the title infers discovered the dweller among the crew. His name is Bob (not real name) and though no one really knows where he lives—as Cydd explained—he’s always around the house. He’s the dude that doesn’t really go anywhere, and probably doesn’t have a key. He watches TV most of the time and I am sure that he doesn’t pay rent because I gave the 650 Pula which is what I have to pay if there’s four people putting in for 2100 Pula a month rent. We went group shopping today and it was sweet. They (Cydd and Jones—aka The Dream) all bought MAD vegetables, a BIG thing of rice, a bag of chicken, potatoes, oil, hand washing soap, and that’s about it. It was fun.
Face The Nation, Mmegi and Immigration tomorrow. I miss having internet…It’s quite sad actually… anyways I have to be up at 7 a.m. tomorrow because I have to be at church by 8:30 a.m. I tried to get Eddy to meet me but he’s leaving the house at 7 a.m. so that’s just a no no.
I decorated my room today with pictures of different animals and some maps of Botswana. I also discovered magazine poetry where I found inspiring words and put them up on my wall as little poems. It looks really cool.

Here are the Poems:
1. Elevated / Dreaming / Suicide / Thoughts/ Infinitely /Saving /Soul
2. Delicious / Oddity. / Get/ New / Crash / Lessons in Love (Followed by my horoscope which basically says let him love you, follow your heat, and change is good).
3. 2008 / African/ New. Revelation /Write On! / Watch/ Fun, Fearless/ Adventurous/ Happy/ Kiss
4. Precious/ Time/ Disarm Them With Charm/ Funky/ Beauty

It’s a nice set up. I’ve been watching Rambo Movies. I watched 1, 2, and 4. Now I’m going to go watch 3. –Yamiche
