Are you tired?

How are you doing today? I can’t exactly say how I’m feeling but I’m okay, I guess. This week is going to be awesome. Can I get an Amen?

So, it’s been well over a week since the #EndSARS protests started in Nigeria. A lot of people would have thought that we’d be tired by now. After all, we’re the ”lazy Nigerian youths”. We’re the ”phone pressing” generation, the unserious ones. But look at what we’ve done in a week! Look at what we’ve done!! Our voices are being heard by the world and by the Grace of God, Police brutality and every other nonsense that comes with it will end in this country.

I asked if you’re tired. Are you? Please don’t be.

Think about the people we are fighting for, the people that died at the hands of brutal policemen, and the peaceful protesters that have also lost their lives. Let us ensure that their deaths are not in vain.

Think about the country we want to live in. The country that we’ve been dreaming about for as long as we can remember, a better Nigeria, where we don’t have to live in fear, where our leaders will be held accountable to the people and will not get away with crimes just because they’re in positions of power. A better Nigeria where the educational and health sectors are up to standard, a country where we are free to express ourselves and exercise our rights without fear of intimidation. Let us try to build a Nigeria that we will be proud of.

Think about the generations coming after us. We don’t want them to suffer like we have, or accept what shouldn’t be as normal. We should do this for a better future. I believe that if we keep pushing, we will be proud of ourselves and this country.

The truth of this whole issue is that it has been a long time coming. I’m glad that the youths are finally waking up and we are finally taking our future into our hands.

However, please don’t lose focus. I like using Donald’s status updates because he expresses his anger well.

Look at these:

You get the gist yeah?

Even though we’re still pushing, please be safe. I saw this online, just in case you or someone else needs it.

I sincerely hope that we don’t forget what we’re fighting for.

Love,

’Ruona. ❤️

CAN I STILL CALL MYSELF A STUDENT?

Hi there, welcome to random thoughts!

I’m going to tell you what has been going on in my mind for the past few days.

I have had to address issues such as:

  • The student in me has graduated
  • I cannot remember my project topic
  • I have moved on with my life

…and I do not know how to act. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO ACT?!

Sigh. I’m calm. I’m not shouting.

I read in the news this past week that schools in Delta State are to resume from the 2nd of October. I don’t know how to feel about it, honestly. As a matter of fact, I haven’t been myself since I heard that news. I am 75% sure that I’ll be speaking the minds of some students who are in my shoes. The ones that may not agree with me have their reasons and I totally respect them.

Now, let’s count together dears.

March – What’s this pandemic? It will blow over.

April – No school stress. I can chill at home & eat good food.

May – Online classes? God, what is this?

June – God please have mercy on us, let schools reopen.

July – Gets angry, travels to school to eat Banga rice.

August – Lands a paying job

September!!!

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

After all this time, who should resume? Who? 😂😂😂

If I say I’m mentally prepared for resumption, I am lying. You know that there are certain situations whereby you’ve hoped and hoped for something and eventually given up hope, then that thing eventually comes and you’re no longer interested? That’s how I feel right now. Imagine if I heard this news before July, this website would not have been able to contain all of us. Now it’s just ”Oh. Okay”.

So, I haven’t touched my project in about three months and I was just exaggerating at the beginning. I still remember my project topic. If you believed what I said in the beginning, then you obviously don’t wish me well 😂😂. Anyways, I’m not enthusiastic about the whole idea of having to resume. I have a job that pays for crying out loud!! I have moved on! 😭😭

Why is this happening to me? 😭😭😭🤧🤧🤧


On the other hand, I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE MY FRIENDS!!! Our reunion will be loud and I will make sure of it. But that’s by the way. I just want to resume, graduate, and get out.

So that’s that about that.

If you were expecting serious stuff today, I’m sorry but you’ll have to check back next time. Meanwhile, here are some of my previous posts if you missed them or you’d like to read something nice:

    This is for my uncle, Daniel Asakitikpi. He was one of the nicest people to ever walk this earth. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

    CAN I STILL CALL MYSELF A STUDENT? I mean, I am not mentally prepared for the possibility of schools reopening soon. You might wanna read this rant to the end.

Love,

P.S:

How are you doing, really?

STUDENTS OF DELTA STATE UNIVERSITY, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RESUMPTION? Who can’t wait to see me? 🤧

Can you relate to what I’ve written?

Are you on the same page as me?

Do you think that schools should have just chilled till next year before resumption?

If your school was asked to resume right now, how will you feel?

Spam me with your comments!!! You know how much I love hearing from you!
