As my roommate and I heard that the bus which usually comes to take us from our hostel to the Teaching Hospital wasn’t coming this morning, to say that we were heartbroken would be an understatement. The 50 Naira transport fare we would have to pay wasn’t painful at all (Quick tip: I’m lying), we would have…

I stood in lane eight, barefoot, wearing an ill-fitting sports outfit which had been hastily provided for me by my House Mistress. ‘On your marks!’ The Games Master bellowed, almost deafening me as he was standing not too far from me. He was holding a microphone; why did the man have to shout? I heard…

Love was a mere fantasy until she came along.  Just like you, she was a fresher. It all started from a simple “hello” in class. Soon mobile numbers were exchanged, which lead to a journey of incessant chats and calls. You were in love, and your lover was your all. The feeling couldn’t have been…

I was reflecting one morning on how I never seem to be able to find a good cobbler around my house. It’s not all the time I want to take my shoes to The Lady Cobbler, especially for small repairs. But, try as I might, I can’t seem to find an aboki’ that’s worth his…

I summoned all the courage I had in me to mutter the weakest “hi” I had ever said to another human being. She seemed anxious, struggling to grasp what I was trying to communicate with my body movements which were all I had since words weren’t coming out. I just stood there obviously shaken or afraid,…

It was 5:30 again. Time to carry his mom’s prized wares of home-made perfumes, air fresheners and insecticides to Nung-Udoe market for her again. He didn’t need an alarm to get up; he had been waking up at this time five days a week for the past two years. As soon as he was strong…

It was just like any other day to Chris. A reluctant jump out of bed at 6.00am, a sleepy mumble of prayers, 15 minutes laboured workout (it was more gasping than work), the shower and then, the start of a nerve racking day in school. The back of the class, that was his position. Alone…

1. You do have to go on a college or Uni tour This might be extremely expensive especially if your intended college or Uni is far away but trust me its more than necessary to at least go for a tour. See where you want to go before you pay your tuition fees so you…

I am sorry. I don’t even know why I am beginning this rant on an apologetic note. Is it me, or is no one worried about what goes on in our schools these days – or maybe it’s just in my school. Shall I begin again? Growing up, I read Ben Carson’s Gifted Hands, where…

I know it is said that most gay people were born that way and all that. I am only taking it from one angle I feel has influenced people’s sexual orientation. I was in the junior class of an all-girls sec. school at the time and I remember not going out for one of those Saturday…

We all heaved a sigh of relief when Dr Abajingin brought the class to a close. We’d been in class for four straight hours pretending to listen to EEG 401lectures. The course was to most of us another deliberate creation of a group of disturbed individuals, headed by a certain long-dead Maxwell, meant to cause…

————- SINS OF THE FATHER  THE SIN OF PRIDE. (2) * ————– Family Pride  by @0Toxic ————- **** “You’re a liar.” No one, absolutely no one has ever called Dr Akinsewon a liar. And yet… “You’re a bloody liar.” “Sir, I’m not lying to you. I’m only relaying to you what Ayomide was caught quite red-handed…

*** Last week we looked at what to do in abusive marriages/relationships and according to your votes, we concluded that: The affected person should leave’. *** Recently some students were convicted of the murder of a 15year old boy in the United Kingdom. It was some sort of a school rivalry. About twelve people were convicted…
