Geez College Happened!

For close to 5 hours we raced on the highway. From Accra my Dad bombarded me with last minute advice, like the previous day’s weren’t enough!

With some friends during my matriculation ceremony

woah! It’s been over a month since I blogged. I feel lazy.  College is like a mosquito, it sings horrible melodies of studies in your ear and slowly sucks the life out of you. Leaving you with stress. It’s great how social activities and meeting new people act as insecticide to make its effect minimal. My coming to college was met with many uncertainties; which school? Which course? What are the job prospects? How will the students be? Eish new roommates! Will I break up with bae? And many similar questions.

For close to  5 hours we raced on the highway. From Accra my Dad bombarded me with last minute advice, like the previous day’s weren’t enough! I remember I intermittently slept and woke up to ask if we’d arrived -they laughed.  My first time  spending a night in Kumasi, challey! It felt bittersweet, being miles away from home. Initially the thought of total independence scared me, then I realised it’s nothing different. My high school was a mini college, lol! I can’t say I love this place, though it’s a good learning environment. Except the  mobile and Internet networks are crap.

Academics -let me be frank, it’s challenging! I remember I was told there is a lot of chilling here in college, they never said “chilling” is a relative word. College is an upgrade of high school; the work, learning, fun, you name them. Females stalking and sandwiching me in class; that’s fun:) Who remembers this Hindi film; 3 Idiots? Yes it’s a similar schooling experience. If you don’t know it; 3 Idiots is a comedy about three college friends who studied engineering. The story line summed their hails and trails.

Some of us are not born with having fun like normal people; going out, partying etc, so I can’t really talk about that but I frequently see people having a field day everyday with their significant others. A course mate even saw a couple making out one night. You know right!

The experiences are many and random, in a space of two weeks I will  update you on them.
