Present Jam: Chemistry by FALZ &SIMI
Who missed me? I missed me!! 😂
So this post is like a letter from me to you explaining where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to the past few weeks.
I’m sorry I’ve not been here for the past few weeks, a number of you got in touch with me, and I really appreciate that.
I was posted to Cross river for National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) I set out for the camp on the 24th of January, the journey was so long, the longest I’ve ever been on actually, it took approximately 22 hours to get to Obubra (that’s where the NYSC camp site for Cross river is). The journey was filled with ups and downs, thankfully, I rode with people that were high spirited that kind of entertained the likes of myself who never actually travel and was cranky.
On getting to the camp around 7am Tuesday morning (25th of January), I had to immediately start registrations which took about 9 hours, I was so exhausted.
The camp was very dusty I reacted to this, but I adjusted early enough, we were expected to assemble on the Meditation ground by 5:00 am every morning (except from Sunday mornings).
The meditation ground is where we prayed, listen to the order of the day, the news and some motivational write up we were expected to meditate on.
In other to avoid long queues at the tap, I usually had my bathe around 2:00 am every morning. The days were filled with activities that were made compulsory, the only break we had was between 2:00-3:50 pm when we were expected to have our lunch and Nap (which was never enough). I was always ready to sleep.
On the bright side, I got to meet lots of people from very different ethnics groups, it was an eye opener for me because I learnt a number of things about various ethnic groups.
I redeployed to Ogun state (I was very surprised that redeployment worked for me), so I left for Lagos immediately the orientation came to an end, I took a bus heading to Lagos from the camp.
I forgot to mention, my photographer and I were posted to Cross river, he made the trip going less painful, He stayed back, I was very sad, I’m going to miss he so much!! I don’t have a photographer anymore 😞.
I’m now shuttling between Lagos and Ogun state for registrations in Abeokuta, I hope I am able to settle down soon, so I can posts on the blog ‘back to back making sure every post is a hit’( I hope you got the joke).
That’s it guyss, bear with me and my letter.
Till the next blog post, I hope it’s soon. xx
