What's going on my people? Been super-duper busy with school, but God is in control. Had my histology exam today. Didn't leave school till 11:30 p.m. last nite, had an all-nighter (slept for 3 hrs only) and continued studying into the exam room. I tell u, i'm exhausted, it ain't even funny. Upon all, i couldn't answer 3 questions. Wetin na? I've done my best, i leave the rest to God. I can't come and die, 'cos of book (gramatically incorrect, i know).
Before i forget, y'all need to check out www.kofowedstuoyo.com. Just heard from the grapevine that Kofo attended QC Lagos, my almamata. Funny thing, Tuoyo's mum was once a princi/ princy (principal) of the school long before i got in. Small world indeed. I'm thinking i might as well, just cut this annonymity thing i have going on, 'cos almost everybody knows my true identity now. That darn pix of my lip and nose i had on my profile caused it. See me thinking i wasn't that popular, eh? It's still under serious consideration, we'll see how that goes. I was sitting down jejely, just minding my business like i always do, when i decided to check facebook, saw that i had a friend request. Checked the guy's profile, was positive i didn't know him, but just 'cos he was a fellow Naija attending a school not too far from me, i added him. It so happened that he had one of those Yoruba names, that is so easy to "Americanize," so i sent him a message to say wassup and to ask if he Yankeenized his Naija name. He denied, of course, and told me his Nigerian name and even went further to tell me he knows me from back in our Lagos dayz. Seriously, anyone that knows me from back in dem dayz, knows that i was one of the quiet ones, so quiet until i got into QC.
In QC if u're quiet, people would take u for a ride. They'd think u're a mumu (dumb person) as in a numero uno ode! I noticed sharp sharp, and had to toughen up. One day, in JSS 2, one of my classmates wanted to cheat me or do something really silly. She was surprised, when i yelled at her. The exact words that came out from her mouth, and i never can forget it was, "Even u too Bijouxoxo, u don open eye o." As in all the razzness, mehn! Anyways, i digress.
So, it came as i surprise, when this dude said he knew me. Checked his only pix on facebook but still couldn't recognize him. Anyways, to cut the long story short, dude and i attended the same primary school. I even remember his name sef, but not his face. Small world indeed. But i'm thinking, how did homeboy discover me on facebbok? I've not seen or heard from this dude since we left primary school. Anyways, lemme leave that alone.
I was featured in our school newspaper. A head shot was placed next to my answers, my people u need to see how i was cheesing as in really flashing my dentition. The guy that took the pix, snapped while i was still laughing. In all honesty, he asked if i wanted him to retake it, but i was running to pee in the bathroom, so couldn't pose for another shot. I told him, that pix just goes to show that i'm a happy person. At least, my classmates will get to see, that there's a different side to me than the serious look i put on in class. Got into my research lab today, when Miss T, my friend and fellow "rat girl," noticed that someone had cut out the pix and the interview thingy and pasted it on the door leading to the lab.
There's nothing really going on with me, besides school. Anyways, i need to have a long nap now, 'cos i'm so tired. Till i update this thingie called a blog again, hopefully i'd update by Sunday God willing, remain blessed folks.
