Ranting about school

Hello readlanders. It has been long since I last came by. I've been busy prepping for my nexy week exams and I still feel like I've done nothing. I don't know if I'm the only one that do get that feeling, but when it is time for exams I begin to feel like I haven't read enough or even that my brain is too slow to help me through the exam.

I've had series of quiz this week and reading for them has helped prepare me more for the exams. It is just that I keep having sleepless nights and I think I might be down with migraine. I was supposed to have a quiz today but luckily for me, it was cancelled. I already foresaw my failure in that quiz as a suffered memory block last night. I guess I was pushing myself too hard to study. I just went to class today with the the conviction that I would fail the quiz, I'm just lucky it got cancelled.

I also heard the saddest news today. It was something I detested so much. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) might embark on another strike. These people were forced by a court order to resume teaching in Universities just last month after they had embarked on an eight months strike over the inability of the Federal government to pay them salaries.

Just yesterday, the federal government paid them half a month salary and now these lecturers are threatening to go on another strike action. This is just so bad. The government has been owing them for the past nine months only for them to wake up yesterday and pay in only half a month salary. The worst part is that these lecturers are ready to stop teaching, some universities didn't teach today and it the students that will bear the pain of it all. We are still trying to survive the fact that we are learning eight month worth of knowledge in a month and now that want to embark on another strike.

It is becoming too much, no one wants to pay attention to education. But one thing I know for sure is that if another academic strike is embarked upon, it will last for a relatively long time. Students will then be required to become human robots. All the sleepless nights I've suffered will be in vain, all the migraines will count for nothing.

I just hope that things do not get as bad as I think it may. I can't even bear the thought of being in one class for two years. It is disheartening. And I still have to continue reading in hopes that there will be no strike and my exams will be written next week.

With the way things are going, I don't really think public institution will be a place to education my child. In this life, I must be rich☹️

Even in my agony, I'm glad to tell you that I finally got my glasses replaced. I broke it sometime last week and I was only able to get a new one yesterday. God works in mysterious ways. I did not spend a dime in replacing, a total stranger did. I helped him look after his mum for a minute and in appreciation, he just offered to pay for my glasses. I'll be sure to give the full details in my next article

Thanks for reading and I do appreciate your coming by.

I hope that the federal government who be able to pay back the remaining salary to the lecturers so that all what you learnt won’t be in vain. It’s good to know that, you were able to get your glasses replaced 🥰🎉

I can't understand Nigeria and I don't think I ever will understand Nigeria. How can they embark on another strike when they have wasted 8 months already? Why has the government renegade on their promise with full payment? They would rather prioritize elections over the future of the citizens. It's super crazy and annoying to say the least.

I wish you all the best in your exam. That's just it, it always look like we haven't read enough. Do all you can and let God do all you can't. All the best.

Thanks for the exam wishes. I just heard this evening that ASUU might embark on a 3 weeks warning strike. I just pray they don't do it. The brunt of it all will still be bore by the students

The students would suffer it more and that's the annoying part. They won't be the ones to bear it. I hope and pray they don't either.

I saw the news about another strike but I know it can't be possible. For God's sake, if another strike happens now, alot of students will dump school.

It's good that you've gotten your glass from a good neighbor
