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.

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?

ENGLISH LESSON

Hello dear. How was your week? If you haven’t seen my previous post, you should do so. This past week, I fell in love with John Legend’s latest album, and here’s a screenshot of my top 4 songs in the album.

Update your playlist, dears.

Today, I’ve decided to remind you that it is common for us to make mistakes in our grammar, and most of the time, these words or phrases sound correct in our head. At times when we write them down, we don’t realize that they are wrong. People tend to make grammatical errors that ruin their sentences altogether especially on social media.

The importance of knowing when your sentence is grammatically incorrect cannot be overemphasized. This topic has been addressed severally but how does a person fix grammatical errors when he/she doesn’t even realize the mistake? This is why I’m here to point out these common mistakes to you. After today, there’s no way you’d be able to say that I’ve not done anything good for you because we’ll be looking at three popular errors people make in grammar, especially on social media.

Your English Lesson Has Commenced. Please be attentive. I’ll be looking at three common grammatical errors people make on social media.

I’M vs AM: ‘I’m’ is the contraction of I+am. This means that you use ‘I’m’ when you want to shorten ‘I am’. It is the informal way of saying ‘I am’ and that’s why it’s often used on social media.

you use ‘I’m’ when you want to shorten ‘I am’. It is the informal way of saying ‘I am’

On the other hand, ‘am’ is the verb and it is grammatically wrong to drop ‘am’ at the beginning of a sentence without a pronoun before it because proper English requires the pronoun before the verb. For clarity sake, I’ll be giving you examples:

If you’re asked ‘how are you’ and you respond with ‘Am fine’ or ‘Am so blessed’, you’re wrong.

As I said, you don’t throw the pronoun away.

Your reply should be ‘I am fine’ or ‘I’m fine’ or ‘I am so blessed’ or ‘I’m so blessed’.

Do you get me now?


THEY’RE vs THEIR vs THERE: I know how confusing this can get because to some people, they even sound alike but they are not the same. ‘They’re’ is a contraction for ‘they+are’, ‘Their’ refers to something that belongs to a group (theirs) while ‘There’ refers to a location. Now that you know the difference between the three, ensure that in the right instances you check that you are using the right ones in the right positions okay?

They’re’ is a contraction for ‘they+are’, ‘Their’ refers to something that belongs to a group (theirs) while ‘There’ refers to a location.


YOU’RE vs YOUR: The difference between these two is being something (you’re) versus owning something (your).

For example:

Ruona, you finished reading a 300-page book in two hours. You’re fast.

Vs

Ruona, are you not done with your novel yet?

In other words, You’re is the contraction of you+are while your is possessive.

If I say something on social media and you come to my dm and you’re like “haha, Ruona your funny”, you’re wrong.

We’ve come to the end of our English lesson and I hope you were able to learn something.

Until next time, dear.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️
