Story of my life playing in the background. Reminiscing on an event that happened on Friday, 9th of October, 2015. Sigh…
It was a normal Friday, had an environmental science lecture at 08:00 GMT. It was great, but I dosed off a couple of times because I slept really late the night before or maybe the lecturer had sleeping potions in his words. After two hours the class ended. Men! I was excited.
After a couple of errands I had at least an hour to sleep before my next lecture. I made max use of the opportunity. Like a baby I slept the hour away.
My room slash classmate woke me up 10 minutes to the start of the lecture, on a normal day it takes not less than 15 minutes to walk from my hall to the college. Woke up like a robot and trotted like a soldier. Halfway through my journey I realised something, ei!
I wish I could advice my fellow college students not to sleep in between lectures
So in my haste to get to class early I wore different pairs of slippers. Bruh! Yes two different pairs!😂 A leather traditional slippers on the left and bathroom slippers AKA chalewote -ditto, because they were of similar colour or that I was walking really fast no one saw it. Wait… may they didn’t want to draw my attention?
As expected I continued my trot in hidden shame like nothing was happening. I got to class and made sure to sit permanently -never getting up till the end and joined the mass when we were leaving for the next lecture. The few who saw me had a good laugh – sadly I did too.

I wish I could advice my fellow college students not to sleep in between lectures or have enough sleep at night. I wish! But college is so challenging you need to burn the midnight candle to survive the natural selection. #lifeOfAfreshman
