What was that stupid thing as a fresher?

Article
Reading Time: 5 minutes
Okay guys, Happy Monday, let’s get fun discussing today, let’s hear it from you as I go first, what was that thing you did that was funny or stupid as a fresher in your institution/university? Me first, let’s go.
  Location: UNIBEN       The mad walk!
There I was with a fellow fresher, almost a fresher actually, we were there for P. UTME. Thing was, we arrived a day earlier and lodged in our brothers’ crib off campus(BDPA). On the day of the exam we didn’t leave in the morning as it was holding in the afternoon, by 1 or 3, can’t really recall, hence our brothers had left earlier, when we set out for school, we first o trekked to the expressway from a street that was quite deep in. Now here’s where it got messy, when we got to the express, in front of 21st street junction, we got confused, unsure of the way into school, after almost a debate of 30mins we decided to trek into UBTH as the rascal I was with claimed he had heard there is a way into school from there, thing is UBTH is a whole lot of length from where we were! and we did the trekking with wet clothes as were trekking under the rain!!!
Then upon getting to UBTH, we sought for directions to NEW 100LT in Engineering, which turned out to be almost same length. Probably you don’t get the stupidity in what we did yet, here it is: 
Main Gate which leads straight into school was right opposite us, on the other side of the express where we stood debating a way in right under the rain! All we needed to do was crossover.

But mbanu! the Valentine oversabi too much and me kuku ma no know anything! confused otondo!

I resumed not as one of the early birds, the first time I got in was funny, not pleasantly, there I was in the lecture theater with a 1000+ other freshers and they all seemed like they had known each other for years and I was the only odd one, to say I felt like a chick underwater is not far from it, I was getting choked with the feeling that I was the only odd one. You’d see me seat somewhere and in a minute someone shows up to say he/she was seated there, and I look to my side to find the crew nodding in affirmation to it! That happened quite frequently leaving me jogging seats, and then to make matters worse the lecturers would come and start teaching mathematics that baffled my understanding and it seemed like I was the only one that found them equations looking like gibberish, so after one of the classes on that fateful day, I ran to Maths Department, walked up on of the staircases, and when I affirmed no one was watching nor was around, I cried out my eyes. Man…

Tah! E no fit apun, if not, e no go funny, na me be the terror now!

  Location: UNIOSUN     My Observations And Errors!

I was utterly confused the first time a lecturer said: “it’s not compulsory to buy my textbook but classrep, let me have the names of those that have made purchase”, I was like:


And then there was this day I was walking with this beautiful girl, behold people of God, before we got to the gate, she had hugged no less than 10 people! God! That day I vowed never to walk with a girl on campus except it be my girlfriend!

And I noticed something as a fresher, my best meal for the first week was bread and coke, third week had me wondering why garri suddenly became so sweet and the only thing appealing. (when money don finish!)

And I always pondered how me and my guys turned super humans when the invigilator says time up, we answer 3hr questions in 50secs.

I took a long walk that could have taken me a stone throw to get to where I was going. Trust me, wasn’t as simple as it’s seeming.

I refused to use the elevator as I was scared that NEPA might take the light and I’d be stuck midway hence I trekked to the building’ fifth floor.

I paid N200 for a distance of N50. I always remember the wicked driver in my prayers.

There I was, a library “pro” but a fresher still, talking to Chimnoso who was an older colleague in the school. He said, man I need to use the computer at E-Library, next thing I was like: Computer? in E-Library? I haven’t seen any since I’ve been going there o… the guy was like:
It was later I realized E-Library is Electronic Library and not Library Extension as I had thought, man that was dumb.
