The much awaited 2016 is here and this is officially the first blog post of the year..yayy! Firstly, I’m thankful to everyone who joined me on this ride since August 2015, all the likes, comments and kind words that has continued to push me to doing even better. 2015 was good but 2016 can only be better! I have to apologize for not sending Christmas wishes to everyone but I trust that you enjoyed all of the festivities and Christmas was lit for you..(it was for mee..lol)
So from me to you,
Happy New Year
May every great new day
Bring you sweet surprises- A happiness buffet!
Do you also have your 2016 resolutions? I call mine assignment that is to be submitted on December 31st, 2016. All it takes is creating a well detailed and structured, articulated and written plan which you must be loyal and committed to fulfilling. Don’t forget whatever you set your mind to do, you can achieve!
I’m super excited as I write because this is the first post in the new series “Chronicles of a UNILAG undergraduate” and also ‘cos *clears throat*… I am officially an undergraduate of the University of Lagos. My matriculation ceremony took place a couple of weeks back and it was amazing- family, friends all came out to show love and I also can’t forget to thank everyone who sent in congratulatory messages..you are the best!
Pictures are on my Facebook page- Aniee Ufia. You can check ’em out!
You see how hot I looked that day? *in my head* “I knoww, thank you thank you”..LOL
Anyways, after the matric (which is matriculation ceremony for short) came the work load!! Not any small one but a major one.. I discovered I had to do year 1 courses as well as year 2 courses totaling 12 courses. Why? Well ‘cos I did a foundation programme which was synonymous to A levels but advanced..let me not bore you with the details! Another discovery was the cold war between DE (Direct entry) students like me and UTME students (those students who didn’t do the foundation programmme). Are you getting the gist?lol
Believe me but I thought cold wars only existed between countries but it does exist between students..where DE students sit at the right hand side of the class and UTME at the left and no one refuses to talk to the other!! Yess, it is that bad..I was furious initially but then why would I blame them? They barely know us and we barely know them so I thought why don’t we give it time? Time is a healer, everything only gets better with time…
So let’s say I have given time the chance to do its work and I also have a part to play too..letting go of all that ego and making friends! Life is short…
To be continued…
Please, don’t forget to leave your comments too; they let me know I’m trying..lol
