I remembered when I gained admission into this University I am in now, my sister called me one night during December when we were having our Christmas at home. She asked how would I cope especially finding a good house. I told her I don't want an expensive home but with low budget. She screamed and said "Busayo think big for yourself"

I smiled and I told her if I should go settle down for a big apartment, who would be helping me pay the house rent? Mom is no more, Dad isn't working again. Would I put everything on you after taking responsibility for paying my school fees? Because the way I was seeing it then, my Aunts weren't ready to sponsor me because I know how we disagreed when they told me not to go for this degree but to sit for another Jamb.

I and my friend decided to get a room so we can split the bills together. She only spent some months which she packed out because her younger sister also gained admission and I told her we three can't share a room. I am still managing the two of us. She understood and got a room in the same compound. I was free and living alone.

Ever since I have been living alone in year 2019, I never enjoyed the house itself not to talk of my room. Rats everywhere, strange insects you have never seen before. I have used all my clothes to block every areas in my room πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ I was even shy to bring in a guest to sleep over. Rat will definitely welcome such person.

It got to a point, I sat down and went into deep thought. This is just the type of life I lived with my parent then when I was young. I don't want such life for myself again.

I told @Olasquare in his article sometimes ago how I have been influenced so negatively in this house. Like these kind of people are living with poor mindset. I couldn't take it again. People that do not know how to use phones or any gadgets. They are ignorant of many things. They will even be complaining of me spending my whole time on phone doing nothing as opposed by then. They act weird on some things they shouldn't have. They are just too local for me. Lol and they aren't ready to learn even if you try to explain things to me. It is what they know alone.

There are so many indigenes here and they do not think or behave like a real University students should 😁😁

I remembered when I stepped into Unilag (University of Lagos) trying to obtain diect entry form then, their hostels alone are filled with classy individuals. I also went to University of Ibadan but they can never compare them with students in my area here πŸ˜„ I don't see any difference between them and local people in the village.

The last time I talked with my younger sister who graduated from University of Benin through WhatsApp Video Call, I know how she insulted me (though it was a joke) I understand her. I can't invite her to such a house and she would come. Never! She hated living a life like this. Not to now talk of my elder sister who lives in Lekki (big People's area) 😁😁


THANK GOD MY TIME IS LIMITED HERE

I have been searching for a good house as told by my sister and I am working towards packing out by the end of December by God's grace. I want to get out of this low life and move to where I belong. At least I would still be spending another year after my graduation pending the time we would be posted for our National Service Year. I don't want to go and stay at home. No! I am now living my own life.

I even spoke to my sister yesterday because according to her, she would be able to send me the house rent by next month God's willing but I am thinking if I can get the house now and pay using my Bch money, then she can return to me later. I am just glad because Bch is saving my life now.

She said I should be patient and wait for her. She didn't want me to spend a penny from what I have though. So, I am already counting my days to be spent here.

Looking for a house that has running water in it with good environment. Already talked to some agents and they are assuring me I will get a good one by December. I want to get out of this house as soon as possible and be free from different ants, insects and the boss of all which is rats πŸ˜„

I told few friends of mine here and they are like I should stay and Instead of wasting money again, I should spend little for this room. I was like "they have come again with their mentality" I won't be influenced again. I must get out of my shell just like what @Kushyzee said 😁😁

They want to draw me back but I will drag myself from them. This is a crab's mentality just like I read again from his article this morning. Lol

Thanks for reading

Indeed, we should not stick to having a poor mindset because it blocks us from aiming something bigger, something more than what we settle.

The journey of a thousand miles begin with a step and you are almost done and I am proud of you. For all you endured, for all you went through and the goodness of heart you also displayed along the way, it's commendable.

Indeed, our environment will either positively or negatively impact us, we just have to be deliberate. The world follows on those who know where they are going.

Omo, as I read up to the part where you mentioned rats, I just remembered the rat that ate my bread earlier this week πŸ˜‚ I was planning to use the bread to eat akara that morning, only for me to bring it out and see a huge rat bite.

You should definitely park our of that your house and leave it to the original owners (rats πŸ˜‚). I envy people that live alone and I plan on doing so next year, I only agreed to live with a roommate so as to cut cost of rent, but this my roommate wants to kill me 😀 let me at least stay my last year on campus alone

I remember also when I was in college. The room was good and I love the paint inside it but there was one thing I was afraid because I saw a rat there. I was really scared that time since I didn't want to see a rats that's why I decided to find a new boarding house.

You remind me of my previous apartment, I had a bunch of illiterates who will knock on my door at midnight because their phone isn't ringing out. We had the kitchen and bathroom outside the house, it was a terrible life and when I told one that I needed a big apartment he said that I should endure it and build my own house.

My sister, if you have the power to go for it please do. Step up and have a good life, you are a Princess and you should always remember that.

You are a princess and you definitely don't deserve to be living in such a local place. The truth is that the type of people you surround yourself with has a funny way of influencing you. It's high time you left those people with low mentality. I'm happy for you πŸ™‚

I remember my old boarding house with lots of irresponsible students. I really hate them because they are not even going to school while their parents are sending them allowance every week.. Due to their poor mindset and bad behaviors, I opted to change boarding house as well and rented in my friends' temporary house, lol. .

Your house makes me remember a friends house while I was in school, rats would enter all her foodstuffs, she will cry to my place telling me how frustrated she is.

The point is just this, don't do beyond your capacity, if you can go for it, fine. And if not keep it low.

My mind and thought are always that whatever I wish to be, I'd be, it might not be now, but it will come.
