Dear Uncle D

Dear Uncle Daniel,

Degwo. I never imagined that I’d ever write this and honestly, there’s so much I have to say but I don’t even know how to start. The fact that you’re gone is still very hard for me to process. It seems so unreal. Talking about you in the past tense has to be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

You were a great man, a selfless man. You showed love, care, and support in your actions. Your jokes were unique and always funny. You were the only person, apart from my dad that I had a really good relationship with. Even though I hadn’t seen you in years, it never seemed like it because you always called to check on me. I have realized that I’ll never hear ”Ruona baby, bomado” or ”Ruona baby, how are you?” What do I do with your phone number now? Nobody saw this coming at all.

Your encouragement is one thing I’m grateful for. You always said that I was doing a great job with my blog and I’d go far. I didn’t even know that you used to read my publications until you started giving me feedback and other suggestions. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t even have started random thoughts on Instagram. Thank you for your prayers. You never hung up without praying for God’s guidance in my life. You were genuinely concerned about me and you listened. You always listened. Degwo.

Uncle D, I miss you. I thought I’d see you after my exams. I didn’t bargain for this. I always thought that you’d be around forever but the sad reality is that this is how life is. I’m going to take consolation in the fact that you have gone to be with the Lord. I know you wouldn’t want me to be sad too. I’m going to make you proud. I’m going to go far just as you said I would by the Grace of God.

Nobody can ever take your place. Thank you for all that you did. I love you so much but God loves you best. Rest in perfect peace, Uncle D.

Your niece,

’Ruona baby.

My Uncle D was laid to rest on the 13th of October, 2020. He was 57 years old and he was one of the nicest people to ever walk this earth.

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.

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?
