I have faith that I would get the visa. The application was a leap of faith for me, seeing that I’ve never travelled outside the country. And I have started exercising my faith by imagining what I would do when I get there.
First of all, I would visit every hair shop in the country. Yes, I know I am more DIY inclined than product junkie inclined, but I have an ulterior motive here.
From what I heard, those hair shops always have product samples at their payment tills. So my plan is to go into every hair shop, buy one cheap hair tool or accessory, and ask for a product sample at the till.
Once I have made it to about 50 stores, I would have loads of product samples, and l would have loads of accessories which I would be selling to my friends when I get back to Nigeria.
I don’t know if I am just being delusional and talking out of ignorance, but something tells me it is very feasible. Imagine having product samples that would last me for the next two years. It means I would never have to worry about how much pudding my twists would consume, and I can rest DIY without drilling any holes in my pockets. I wouldn’t have to worry about dollar price affecting my hair care routine. This is a real exercise of faith.
To be honest, apart from this, I have no idea what I would be doing when I travel (noticed I said when, not if), and Dimeji hasn’t really been helpful in that area.
My interview is sometime in the next two weeks. I need all the prayers. Maybe I would even start a fasting and prayer session for this.
Jesus, take the wheel. I must travel by fire, by force.
