I found out my posting in the midnight, it was Jigawa. I was surprised and not surprised but I was surely sacred. When I told my father he said "that means you are not going for service this year!" Eh! Sharply I called my elder brother who was then serving in Anambra and he convinced my parents to let me go, but we should prepare a doctor's report for my relocation.
I went to Jigawa armed with my doctor's report and my mother's plenty prayers. Camp was not very eventful for me but it was fun. The soldiers were strict but still friendly. I participated in most of the activities surprisingly, because i am a very shy person. The only thing i kinda hated was the sun, Jesus! Jigawa can blaze for Africa. The first three days I no chop, giant bottle water was my companion, but I got used to the sun later.
My real nysc experience began when I moved to this Ogun state, holed up in a little village. I got posted to a village school with demons in little packages. In summary, I made friends, lost some, lost a love, found another...and it has dawned on me that am no longer a baby...the struggle is getting real o. I will summarize my major nysc drama in a few paragraphs.
First and very sadly, i broke up with my boyfriend whom I loved very much. Stella, I loved him and he said he loved me too but he wasn't showing it. I believe actions speak louder than words. He always chose other people over me and I felt less than a priority. So I stepped out of the relationship to look for something better. Am too young to be a kept girlfriend.
Meanwhile in the lodge i stay at, which is very cool BTW, two of my fellow corpers at different times got it into their heads that I had feelings for them, in my mumu mind I was just a platonic Friend and I didn't read the signs on time. A few confrontation and fights later and niggers were pouring out their feelings. I have zero tolerance for unnecessary drama so I cut ties with them. I entered my shell back.
On a happy note, the best thing NYSC has given me is my boyfriend! Am thankful to God that i met him. Lemme not start gushing before some bvs go swear for me *side eyes*. Would never have thought I would love a Northerner, where I for see am if not for Nysc.
Service has made me patient especially with people, I have learned a few languages, am more tolerant and I hope to be able to explore the country more after service.
Am looking forward to passing out next year by the Grace of the Almighty and I pray I get a job quick.
*Hian another Northerner like yesterday!...Which Northern celeb wil i make blog boo oooooh *thinking*..LOL
