When we started dating everything was rosy, I was at home, had all the time on my hands and no stress. We used to talk for long hours over the phone, see every weekend, send pictures to each other, it was just really cool.

After the Christmas holiday, I got back to Lagos, school work set in and everything just changed. The long hours turned to 5 mins, I hardly sent pictures, was always tired after class.
