Anyone else struggling with barely any Somalis nearby?

I've lived in different parts like the Gulf and back home in Hargeisa and something I really miss is being around other Somalis. I go to uni abroad and there is not a single Somali here or even in my town that I know off. There are some Ethiopian girls and some Sudani guys, but it's not the same.

I tried chatting up this Oromo girl and it was such a tiring effort hard carrying that conversation. I miss the banter and fun back and forth, Somalis are never boring conversationalists imo. Oh man I am incredibly home sick.

It's making me reconsider making a life of myself here. The few Somali girls here are very into the local culture and just claim to be something else. I'm in Qatar and one girl for example always said she's Qatari and I found out a while ago she was just naturalized.

You'll get over it with time and you'll slowly become less and less Somali. After a while, you will be unable to recognise your old self and you won't easily readjust to back home.

Focus on your studies. Try to join groups or make your own Somali student association.
Best of luck. I empathize with you and know how it feels to be the only Somali in some spaces. Maybe keep in touch with old friends back home.

Six month's ago I moved from Columbus, a city with 40k Somalis to small town in Oklahoma, a state with no Somalis.

This oilfield town I live has only 20,000 residents,less than 20 blacks,one Jordanian gas station owner,Indian family and white old Afghani women.

The first few months I felt the combination of lonesome, home sickness and a mild depressions, I thought I would miss loud Somalis and Ohio but living in state with no Somalis is like living like a hell.

Inshalah I am moving back out here next month,the first two months was horrible a but now I am used to it and could care less about Somalis and their Carnivorous,

No airport,train or bus station in this town and Isolated, it took 4-5 months for the first case to reach here, now we only have 3 cases and that is what every talk about.

Most of the residents on nere think the virus either a flu or hoax just because they haven't seen anyone die from it, 95 percent of them don't even wear a mask, it feel like a we live in Mars and wearing a mask is only for earth inhabitants. .:wow1:

Sometimes it's good not being around somalis. They are quite embarrassing the ones I have seen, lould, brainless, and dress like homeless people , and the way the eat will make you gag. I see them drinking juice while they have rice in their mouth .
