Where Did You Stop? 7 Ways To Pick Up Where You Left Off In Your Studies
Getting called ‘Fresher!’, ‘Jambito’ and other annoying nicknames
You walked into the hostel or any other place in school and had people yell ‘jambito!’, ‘fresher!’. Those nicknames were straight-up annoying and you probably rolled your eyes or hissed about a thousand times.
Dealing with the frustrating registration processes
Filling lengthy forms, doing biometrics registrations, course registrations, processing documents, waiting on long queues for long periods of times and having to deal with frustrating tech issues such as slow internet connection. By the time, you were done for the day, you probably just went to eat and sleep.
Seeing your former school mates
This was probably one of the most satisfying feelings you had, right? After meeting strangers and having to introduce yourself a million times, you finally bumped into your former schoolmates. It was very relieving because you finally had some company and you didn’t feel alone. You were able to share some jokes and their company made all the frustrations of the first day of school more bearable.
Dealing with The ‘Culture Shock’ of University
You realized just how different your university was from your school. You realized that you had lectures in different lecture halls, you had full control of your money, there were no bells or sirens to indicate the end of lectures, break times or closing times. It was a whole new experience entirely.
Seeing your roommates for the first time
Ah, that awkward feeling. Opening the door of your allocated room and seeing the faces of the strangers you would have to spend the rest of your semester with, analysing their appearance, habits and hygiene.
Fighting over bunkspace and lockers
From to ‘I want the bed behind the window’ to ‘I prefer a softer mattress’ to ;I want to sleep on top’ and of course, ‘I came here first’
You were forming hard babe/ hard guy when your parents were around, telling them that you would be fine on your own. Shortly after they left, you started missing them and the home you were so used to. You might have even shed a thug tear or two (Did you? 👀)
When you see your fellow freshers settling in so quick
They’re already blasting music from their speakers, running around, making noise, going about half-nude and you’re just standing there, wondering how in the world they already feel so comfortable.
