So from me to you,

Happy New Year

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!

You-can-do-it-BABY

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

Blessings,

Aniee

    Congratulations from an Akokite to another!

    Well, as a graduate of Unilag who came in through the Foundation programme too. I heard of such but we never experienced it in my department and much of this is due to the kind of class rep we had. She broke down that wall the first week we joined by assigning a new assistant course rep that came from DE and always ensured that any group work consisted of members from both DE and UTME.

    Personally, we learn over time to drop our egos since the first move had been made. I’d suggest you make the move and interact, there’s so much they can help you with that you might not know…

    Lovely blog layout ☺

      Oh wow, that’s good. Well, things are much better now. I’ve made friends with a couple of UTME students and yes, they’re helpful. I’m glad to know there’s someone who can totally relate..lol
