My friends are leaving!!!



My friends are leaving, I am supposed to be graduating this year, but because I deferred a year and deferred a semester again (don’t ask..long bloody story) it means i still have a year and a semester to go…but its all right anyways…yes most of the people I started with would be leaving and all..but its okay, cause I know there’s a reason for everything and it will all work out in the end, whether I am graduating now or next year.

So my friends are leaving, odun and yinka. Thy are both law students, and they are off to law school,either in far away Abuja or Enugu…

This is about Odun….(Oh dee bee)



I met Odun in secondary school, Chrisland college…





I was one year her senior and for a while we stayed in the same room. We were not very close back then cause it was almost like a sin to be friends with your junior but we talked and on several occasions she’d weave my hair for me.Anyways Odun left Chrisland for CTC intl…which happens to be my former school…so we basically know the same people. We had the same experiences in school, people were mean to us, they were unkind, they said horrible things…sometimes it was too much…I left Chrisland for D-ivy college(school prostitute)…I finished there..2004 I entered Unilag and one day I was lining up for a cab and I saw Odun entering Moremi hall….i couldn’t shout because she was too far…but the next day guess who sat beside me in the cab as we went to school- Odun! She was lookignfor accommodation and I told her about my hostel (the one I still stay in now),and weeks later she moved in.The memories we share together are too much to fill an entry, but it has been fun…really has..All our crazy paroles,lol….that time we walked to school and those boys gave us a ride and wanted to take us to some night club but we said no…and they were trying to touch us and all..it was horrible…but we got out of it safely thank God.
Going to school at night to read and I had to walk back to my hostel because my fone was dead and I couldn’t call Odun to find out were she was this was at 11:00pm and i even had to pass Atan cemetery..it was the scariest thing ever.
On one of such trips to school I met Yinka, she was Odun’s friend but we weren’t friends then.





I remember those boys that used to come and check on us…tony and ken..lol….and they’d take us out but we weren’t really feeling them…
The first time we went to the club with tayo and whatshisface…lol…I wore my man.u jersey…we were like village girls coming to lagos..it was so new to us…and we ended up not liking it..cause we sat all day and drank night…and gossiped back and forth with our fones.Gosh you should have seen my face when that chick was grinding that guy, I hadn’t seen anything like that till then. It was the first time ever we had pulled an all nighter and we got back to the hostel by 5:00am…feeling sleezy like them Aristo girls cause it just wasn’t something we did…
Your family friend Dimeji Bello who turned out to be the biggest bolo ever and we cursed him out like shege after what he did to us (I blogged about this)
Cabing to HICC, and when we got back someone on an okada snatched Iye’s bag at Moore road




You remember all those weirdo’s you brought into my life and the ones I brought into ur life, but u more than me though….
Can u remember Segun and Rotimi…with their wahala….
Lol that party we went to at “Big Ben’s” lol…..lol….lol…..you know why am laughing…

Gosh the people we have met….



And all the escapades with that goat head Richard!



All your crazy toasters…Ernest (lol..don’t deny it now), saheed balogun!!!lol(not the actor oh)….Hcode that I liked for you, Aloquitos…lol what a name…..

Our suya and bread stuvs near Johnsons, indomie and suya….dun dun….Ewa agoyin and bread, indomie from Matthew’s place…gosh we ate so much rice am surprised its not growing on our heads…yall turned me into ur personal chef…

Our fights lol…I remember when u didn’t want to give me your laptop….arrrgh I was so mad and we had this little tiff….cause I tot u wer just a fussy twat….and the big fight




The time u went to silverbird without me, even though the day before I told you lets go and u said u weren’t up to it…for u to now go without me…I was angry…and then I asked u and u started shouting…and I stood up and started shouting too…and u asked me ‘if I was ur boyfriend’ that got me pissed..damn…I told you to fuck off! Get the fuck out of my room…and u cursed me out too..lol..but we don’t curse…we never do…so it was funny…everybody was shocked cause we had never fought before and we shouted so much the whole hostel came to my room.we didn’t talk for like a week or two…but I missed u….and we started talking during folake’s birthday.






Gosh u were the razzest human being everrrrrrr!!! As in Odun u are an agbero…lol…when u speak ur Yoruba in that razz way and u r responsible for my tiyauns…you and yinka that are always speaking like razz human beings on purpose saying “yelz” and “hegg” and “plix”…..why wouldn’t I mistakenly say something like foice….instead of voice…..






I liked u because you were real, you could rock your white and black…high wasted skirt..


with ur heels and u could still buy dun dun without giving a fuck things most other girls would shy from. You kept it real babes, you had a good head on your shoulder..for a smallie you knew a lot of things and u r very smart…of course you r I don’t hang around stupid girls….but hey u learnt from the best…so why am I surprised..lol




I admire your love for God….you are principled and you carry yourself well…




(Sesky Maraposca)



The chronic stuff leaver, always leaving stuff in my room….it used to drive me mad and I promised you the next time u left anything in my room ud find it on ur forehead the next morning..but ud still come the next day and leave something else..

On my birthday!



Your karashika makeup. miss black eye-shadow…lol…one thing we both had in common….our love for accessories and humongous earrings…that wasn’t the only thing though, we both enjoyed rock music, loved reading novels…gisting, gossiping, watching t.v….u cud watch anything odun….even cockroaches crawling..u would watch..everything just interested you and I could talk to you about anything cause just like me you knew a lot about a lot of things…politics, football( stupid arsenal fan that u are),movies….anything there was always something to say…


As you go on I wish you the best in all your endeavors, of course we’ll still be keeping in touch…but it wont be the same….university would have been horrible without a friend like u…..lemme rephrase that.. University life is horrible but u being there made it easier for me to cope with.

On Odun's birthday








Yinkus Periwinkus




I met Yinka on one of me and Odun’s night trips to school to read, that was the first time I met her…we just said our usual hi’s and that was it…a year or two later Yinka moved into my hostel…We had a mutual friend Odun which meant most times we’d all have to hang out, but we really weren’t close…just hi hi..whats good and all.Like everybody else who doesn’t know me….Yinka probably assumed I was some quiet, shy girl who you could probably ride….which everybody usually thinks…but hey I like to surprise people..






Now she calls me her tall big breasted friend and she never fails to tell anyone who cares to listen that I am insane and psychotic and just putting up a front….I just really got close to Yinka this year….we just really started talking…I wish we had gotten to know ourselves long long before now…but hey everything happens for a reason…

I guess I just have friends with Agbero tendencies…cause Yinka is also one, a terrorist I tell yer…Tomboyish…when she wasn’t in her black and white she was in her tee-shirt and jeans…

I like the fact that u just didn’t send anybody…I like my friends like that…yall cannot even shout.

Your shoe fetish…I have never seen…but I guess I understand cause its kind of like my Acessories fetish…





Lol I remember teasing you about Mr. Friday’s brother….and the night that I asked you what if God said you were meant to marry him….your reply was a big fat TUFIAKWA!...lol…I even went further, what if he had an extreme makeover…and someone there was some surgery that made it possible to attach limbs to a person and make him taller….and now he looked like some hot something….you still said NO!...lol…u cruel o!....gosh that night was funny, I cracked up real good…

Our silverbird trips, food poisoning at M-café…..lol….u could have made money…..i could have stated coughing…fallen on the floor…and we’d have threatened to sue or something..ur a lawyer u can make something up…

All the wahala you gave me whenever you were in my room, if you weren’t jumping on me trying to squash me, you were causing me serious bodily harm..maybe you had a crush on me..who knows…and the only way u could express yourself was inflicting me with pain..lol..






Yinka loves to talk and talk and explain and explain and over emphasize things sha…lol….gosh you could be annoying at times….i know how many times I just wanted to strangle you when you do those annoying things you do..like hit me or leave a plate or a cup in my room..arrrrgghhh!!!



Yinka applying my award winning...JOKER make-up

I think u had OCD…because u just had this need to arrange stuff….







I like the fact that you always stood your ground and were not easily swayed and you truly cared about those that matter to you,its one thing to say you care and its another thing to prove it…you made sure ur actions spoke louder than ur words and for taking the time to get to know me….instead of just assuming that I am this or that….and I am happy I got to know you too…




I guess sometimes its not how long you’ve known a person that makes you friends,I might not have known u for years…but you are a friend for life...









To all my other friends graduating...wish u all the best....love moi!!!!
