Diary of an Honest Naturalista: Week 64

I can’t believe it is almost a year since I started my NYSC at this ministry. Soon, it will be over. I can’t tell if I will miss Madam Adams when that time comes, but I am sure I wouldn’t want to work with her for longer than necessary. I know I will miss Tonya. She will most-likely be returning to the States to continue with her life. She has never really lived in Nigeria, and it still baffles me that she came here, just for the purpose of serving. I’m praying she decides to stay back, though I’m not sure how she will be able to cope here for long term.

In other news, there’s one guy I want to hook Tonya up with. He really likes her, and definitely not going to knock off her natural hair. Even though he doesn’t seem to be in the same financial class as Felix, he is definitely not a jerk. Basically, we served together in camp, but he was in a different platoon, and we were not really close. We got closer when we were both posted to the secretariat, but he is in Ministry of Works.

I actually took more note of him when he started complimenting me about my hair whenever we went for clearance, and a light friendship developed from there. I think he’ll be very cool for Tonya, knowing both of them pretty well, but here are the factors giving rise to my dilemma.

Tonya doesn’t seem to have totally gotten over Felix
I am not sure if she will stay back in Nigeria, when she finally makes up her mind
They are not in the same social class

To be honest, I really like the idea of them together, but how I am going to pull this one off really beats me.

The guy has claimed his undying love for her, and begged me to just put in a good word for him, because he feels Tricia doesn’t even know he exists. But at this point I don’t know what to do. I really need advice.
