As dad reversed mom came flying down wit a bag of snacks for the road. She gave it to me; we said our goodbyes and the journey began. A journey started with fear uncertainty and indecision

How rude of me I didn’t introduce myself I’m Yasmin recently turned eighteen and  right now on my way to my probable school of higher learning……. I mean the university. A part of me wanted this whole admission thing to click and another part keeps screaming “I’m not ready!” as we continued in silence my mind drifted through a lot of things all this of course wasn’t obvious in my expression which was more or less bland . My dad either thought I was worried or just for the sake of conversation said ‘ not to worry you  can always cross over to medicine or even go back for a second degree’ and I thought to myself who’s thinking medicine right now?

The drive to school was about three hours longer and when we finally appeared at the gate in all its glory I thought ‘oh dear 3years ago I never thought this would be going this way’ I swallowed hard and tried not to panic and when I saw my brother I calmed down and wondered what worse could possibly happen. I began feeling comfortable in my skin clad in blue top and skirt but lost almost all bravado when my dad began driving off I had to control the urge to scream “don’t go! Take me with you” and as the car moved out I moved to my brother’s room, my first room on campus in The Obafemi Awolowo University

  • I enjoyed reading this, and it brought back memories of being dropped off at boarding school years ago.
