Are you a Nigerian Student? Are you in a relationship with a fellow Nigerian student? If your answer to these questions is “yes”, then definitely understand these struggles stated below

  1. The roommate that does not understand privacy

You have been telling Cynthia about how bae is coming over for some private time since the beginning of the week. The day finally arrives and that is when Cynthia remembers to start cooking beans. You try giving her signs, but this is Cynthia

2. When all the course mates are monitoring spirits

One day, you decided to not sit beside bae, and they are asking you if you broke up. Ogbeni, do not let the devil use you!

3. It is worse when the lecturers are in on it too

They ask bae a question and they cannot answer? that is where you come in. Both of you cannot answer?

4. Spending money on dates

The last money in your account is meant for course material, but babe has been craving pizza and shawarma for a while now.

Course is temporary, but faaji is forever

5. Weekend classes

Why is it always during weekend gateaway time that Professor Azeez remembers he wants to set test, practical, and exam part 1?

6. Class schedules

If you and bae are not in the same department and level, seeing them might be very difficult. Some cases, both of you only run into each other shuttling classes looking like different variations of this:

7. When the semester finally ends and everyone has to go home

You are stressed because bae lives in Lagos and you in Edo state. Even if you lived in the same state, your mother will not allow you go out at night.

If you struggle or have struggled with any of these, we understand your frustration, and we are putting you in our prayers
