Hello everyone! It’s been a while! I hinted in my last post that I wouldn’t be available for some time but I’m back in full force now. I’ve been knee deep in school work and exams were a tad bit stressful but I give God all the glory ‘cos your girl is now in 400 level!! 🥳
Didn’t you hear me??! Your girl is officially in her FINAL YEAR!! *cue zanku* 😂😂
This brings me to what I’m going to do today. I hardly ever do any appreciation posts because I believe that the ones that are close to me should know I love them and stuff. Also, all these mushy stuff does me one kind in my body. The subject will now be feeling fly and funky 🙄 but as I thought about the time I’ve spent in school from 2016 till now, I realized how grateful I am. I’m grateful to God Almighty who has kept me till this moment, I’m grateful to my parents and my brother who have been so supportive but this publication today is for three girls that have played major roles in my life since the day I met them here in school, Delta State University, Abraka. When I think about them, I just go “thank you Lord for bringing these people into my life”.
If you’ve read up to this point, just read till the end. I want you to meet these girls who have given me so much love. Sigh. I promised myself I won’t cry. Okay, here goes.
See this girl? This girl is my day one. Literally. The first day I went for faculty and departmental screening was the day I met her and we’ve been friends till date. Honestly, I don’t see her as a friend anymore. She’s my sister. Benny is so selfless! Benny is always willing to give! She’s always concerned about what I’m going to eat. She always gives a listening ear and every advice she gives is precious to me. Benny has been making my hair since 100 level. Benny makes sure I don’t look like a house girl next to her (she slays yunno?) She knows every single dress I own. 😂 She’s always calm and collected even when I’m panicking and she thinks fast and has a solution to issues almost every time. She’s the yin to my yang, she never likes seeing me sad. If I’m frowning, you’ll just hear something like “Ruona, repair that face now”.
Benny, words cannot describe how much you mean to me. You’re one of the many blessings that God has given to me and I’m grateful you’re in my life. So, so grateful. I love you, Benedicta.
I met Benny first and while I was still thanking God, He sent me another person, SOPHIA!
See this girl?? She has a heart that’s as pretty as her face. I love her so much, it annoys me at times. Sophia is my confidante, my walking diary. I can tell her anything and everything and she listens and never judges. Her sense of humor is just something else. Sophia introduced me to a whole new set of friends. She’s always there when I need her. You should hear her sing. She encourages me to love God more, she makes me want to be a better person. Sophia gets me. She always understands. The only day we got mad at each other, I started crying. I couldn’t eat or read. I guess when they say you find your soulmate, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the opposite sex. Sophia is my soulmate. Even the fact that she can be annoying gives me joy.
We’re going to 400 level now and she’s a medical student so she’s going to another town entirely to continue. I’m going to miss her so much tho’ I’ll deny it if anyone asks. I remind her all that I love her all the time 🙄 She knows it.
Okay 😪 okay 😪 I said I’m not gonna cry. I’m a big girl 😪 The last but not the least person I want you to meet today is my guy for life, JULIET!!
The story about how I met Juliet is a funny one but it’s obvious that God sent her to me because I would not have imagined in a million years that the person I met while working at Choba in Port Harcourt would be my roommate.
Juliet is all shades of fun, my personal hype woman!! I don’t know what I’d do without you, always making sure I’m eating and not looking sick 😂 Juliet is responsible for most of the weight I’ve added in school. She comes with peace of mind and her vibe and energy is contagious. Juliet can cook! She can bake!! Nobody can do shakara with baked goods for me because I have my personal caterer. Juliet has taught me to be stronger and to never give up. Juliet is a giver! She has been a huge source of encouragement, a blessing. Talking with Juliet is calming and fulfilling.
We’ve had our ups and downs but I’ll never trade my Julieee for anything. I’m grateful. You don’t know how much.
Have you read up to this point? Thanks for sticking around. This just had to be done. It’s been long overdue. I may not have so much to give these girls right now (cos I’m still waiting to blow 🤧) but I really want them to know how grateful I am because they’ve made my stay in school as smooth as oil.
I appreciate you guys so much. I’m counting my blessings and you are a part of them. May God bless you for me. Thank you 🤗
P.S: Next 🔥 post coming real soon.
